Oosterbaan Starts Football
Practice With Clean Slate
Head Coach Benny Oosterbaan, bundled inside a huge inner-lined
raincoat, looked around at approximately 125 candidates digging their
cleats into the Ferry Field mud, and quipped "Tradition has been
broken. It's raining in Ann Arbor before 6 o'clock."
It was a standing joke that it never rained around these parts,
until football practice was over because Fritz Crisler ordained it so.
But the downpour at yesterday's opening football drill started Ooster-
baan off with his own clean slate.
After a general organization meeting and limbering up period
for the benefit of the newspaper photographers, the entire squad was

Backfield Practices Signal Drills
Midway through the session,
newly appointed backfield mentor,
George Ceithaml, with the help of
quarterback Howard Yerges, ran
the backfield tryouts through a
series of signal drills.
"Many of these boys played on
the freshman squad last fall,"
Oosterbaan explained, "and Wally

Blott Sweats Linemen
Line Coach Jack Blott worked
his line charges until the sweat
began to roll off their faces.
Tackle George Johnson, who fin-
ished his collegiate career with
the '47 Big Nine champs, aided
Blott along with Gib Holgate,
former JV tutor.

both relays a series of mixups
caused the Maize and Blue to lose
precious yards and first place in
each event.
Joe Hayden stepped out of his
lane in the two mile relay and
disqualified his quartet which
went on to win. Their margin over
Ohio State's Buckeyes, who were
awarded first place, was at least
five yards.
In the mile jaunt there was a
mixup in the baton exchange
which put the Wolverines well be-

in a poor second behind the Ohio-
ans who won in a fair 3:22.3.
