Vie For Open
Trio Of Westf all, Christy
And Zimmerman Shows
Power; Gannatale Hurt
It's going to be a wide open battle
between three fullbacks, Ed Christy,
Bob Westfall, and Bob Zimmerman,
for the starting berth in the sea-
son's opener with State's eleven if
yesterday's practice session is any
indication of the boys' ability and
determination to get the job.
Even Coach Fritz Crisler admitted
that ,both. sophomore Bob's and
Christy, a junior, were showing
steady improvement. Ed turned in
one of the most spirited perform-
l nces of the practice with some
stellar blocking and hard driving
runs through the line in contact work.
However, before the session was over
Westfall and Zimmerman counter-
balanced his work with equally bril-
liant performances to make it ap-
pear that it will be nip and tuck all
the way for the post.
Gannatale Wrenches Back
Although the coaching staff let up
a little yesterday, the individual
players did not ease up but continued
their vicious and spirited play in
such a manner that Paul Gannatale,
a reserve back, had his back wrenched
while serving as cannon fodder in
running back punts.
Tackle Bill Smith's left footed
booting again stood out as he and
Paul Kromer did all the punting yes-
terday, since Tom Harmon continued
to take only light workouts due to a
charley horse, although he was in
uniform. Added to the temporary
casualty list yesterday was George
Ostroot, second string tackle, who
worked out in a sweat suit in order
to permit a bruised hip acquired in
Saturday's scrimmage to heal.
Savilla, Smith Stand Out
Roland Savilla's tackling and
blocking again was spirited and up
to par as he and Bill Smith teamed
up at the tackles to turn in some
good performances both offensively
and defensively in the contact work.
Also, Ed Frutig's defensive work con-
tinued to 'be on the up-grade as he
led the squad in running down under
punts and snaring the returning ball

A Bulwark At Tackle

Fundamentals Open Drills
For GroupOf 70
Coach Wally Weber greeted 70
eager freshman football candidates at
the initial practice session Monday at
South, Ferry Field. "They're likely
looking material," Webster comment-
ed, "but we can't tell anything about
them till we have a scrimmage."
As soon as the squad was organ-
ized, Webers' assistants, Coaches
Keen, Courtright and Fisher, start-
ed the important task of teaching
fundamentals. The linemen were
drilled hard yesterday on blocking,
the backs received instruction in run-
ning and tackling and the entire
squad participated in conditioning
