It's a stiff week-end and the Field
house activities of yesterday and the
remainder of the week are being in-
creased in tempo. Michigan's idle
regulars of Monday were put through
a strenuous session yesterday with
no one spared scrimmage rigors.
Unhampered By Injuries
Jim Rae and Leo Beebe both saw
action and showed little effects of
their reported injuries. Beebe's hip
bruise received attention in the train-
ing room but it failed to hamper his
playing activities. Rae's ankle injury
also failed to slow him up during the
After a preliminary session of
working the ball down court, Cappon
sent the first team against the sec-
onds and thirds and topped off the
workout with a game between the
two reserve squads.
The regulars were made up of Capt.
John Townsend, Ed Thomas, Jim
Rae, Bill Barclay and Herm Fishman.
Beebe was excused from the second
half of the scrimmage.
