Minnesota Given

Lengthy Workout
MINNEAPOLIS-(IP)-Contrary to
custom, Coach Bernie Bierman sent
the entire Minnesota football squad
through a lengthy drill Monday, op-
ening preparations for Saturday's
clash with Michigan at Ann Arbor.
Only three men, all or them injured
in the loss to Northwestern, were ex-
cused from the workout. By John-
son, right tackle, suffered a dislocated
elbow in the Wildcat battle and, his
physician said, will be lost to the team
for three weeks. Harold Van Every
and Bruce Smith were the other in-
jured Gophers, each suffering a leg
injury. Both, however, will be ready
to play against Michigan.
