After winning the high school
crowns at 115- and 120-pounds in

to Michigan because of Carl
Rhodes, captain of Fehrs' Her-

Head football coach Bump El-
liott turned his back on Ann
Arbor's inclement spring weather
yesterday, and held a scrimmage
in spite of it-a simulated one in
Yost Field House.
With a portion of a football
field chalked onto the soft, but
dry, dirt floor of the field house,
the squad went through normal
scrimmage plays and patterns.
"We're making some progress,"
Elliott commented after practice,
"but of course we can't do some
of the things we'd like to do." And
if nature doesn't ameliorate the
condition of Ferry Field soon, they
might not get out until fall.
Nevertheless, Elliott is getting

some satisfaction from the indoor
practices. "We're getting a good
look at the new players," he said.
He was pleased with the perform-
ances of guard Paul Johnson and
end Roger Rosema, and also men-
tioned Dave Porter (tackle), Joe

Elliott remarked that the play-
ers who were injured last season
were coming along fine. Quarter-
back Dick Vidmer and fullback
Barry Dehlin are both in good
shape. Ken Wright, a junior
guard, injured his knee during
practice yesterday, but it is not
yet known how serious it is.
