By BUD HENDEL
The 1941 model of the University
of Michigan's football machine put
on a premature display of its ability
in an hour scrimmage session under
Coach Fritz Crisler's direction at
Ferry Field yesterday afternoon.
In spite of adverse football con-
ditions, namely the slippery mud, the
gridders gave a good account of them-
selves-considering that it was only
their second scrimmage of the current
spring training grind.
And the honors for the day were

These two, Powell and Fahrbach,
form the backbone of the Wildcats.
Doyle Gray, a surprise fourth place
winner in the Big Ten 50 yard dash
is another threat with Jerry Zehr,4
a backstroker and Johnny Walsh, a
distance man, listed as dangerous.
Outside of that Northwestern has
little to cope with the man-heavy
Wolverines. But both teams are at
their respective peaks physically and
mentally and that in- itself can cause
plenty of fireworks.
With one eye cocked on the Na-
tionals, Matt.Mann is previewing his

Jack Patten, Dobby Burton, Gus'

and Tommy Williams.
The rest of the Wolverine lineup
will remain just about the same as
has been swimming all year. Jim
Welsh and Blake Thaxter take over
the 440-Dick Reidl will be given the
backstroke event to himself with Ted
Horlenko a possible entry-and Bruce
Allen and Bob West will match
strokes with Fahrbach in the 50.
The return of John Sharemet to
action will provide Mann with his
strongest breaststroke corps with Jim
Skinner in top shape.
