Coach Bennie Oosterbaan wasted
no time in getting experiments
started at his Ferry Field football
laboratory yesterday as spring
practice opened for' 105 aspiring
Four lettermen and the team's
best yearling, Don Deskins, will be
given a try at new positions,
Bob Ptacek, Jim Byers, John
Spidel and Gordie Morrow are the
others whom the coach cited yes-
terday for trials at spots other
than those they earned letters at
Deskins, a first semester sopho-
more, was a tackle during his
Marine Corps career and first year
at Michigan. Now, with his ability
at tackle known, coaches want to
look him over at guard, where
regulars Larry Faul and Marv
Nyren depart by graduation.
Changes aren't new for Deskins.
Before entering the service, the
240-1b. Jamaica, N. Y., citizen ran
from fullback for little Adelphi
(N. Y.) College.
Coach Bump Elliott hinted that
Ptacek's change to quarterback
might be a "safety valve" move in
case top-seeded Stan Noskin is
injured. Ptacek worked out at both
quarterback and left half yester-
day. Last season he played 204
minutes at halfback, spending the
season in Jim Pace's shadow.
Actually, the blond Clevelander
spent most of his freshman year
at quarterback, but was moved to
left half after three weeks of
spring practice that year. The big
junior has completed 16 of 26
passes in his first two years from
A crushing fullback and the star
of last year's Homecoming Game
with Northwestern, Byers is a
junior with a fine linebacking
reputation and will try out at
Move Not Final
Line Coach Jack Blott noted
that "Jim's defensive work was
the main reason for the switch.
The move is not final; he will just
get a number-one shot at the job."
Blott himself was converted
from fullback in his undergraduate
days at Michigan and went on to
become an All American.
Spidel, a lanky quarterback who
was earlier planned to understudy
Noskin, will be given a nod at end.
He played defensive right end
during a couple of minutes of last
year's Indiana game.
The other change will send
Gordie Morrow from end to center,
his old prep school position at Ann
Arbor High. The 215-pounder was
drafted by the Los Angeles Rams,
but has a year of eligibility left.
Works on Fundamentals
The team spent most of yes-
terday working on fundamentals
under the hot spring sun. Only 10
of the 115 who drew uniforms were
not on hand.
Helping out the coaching staff
work with its young linemen were
ex-Captain Jim Orwig, Mary Nyren
and Dick Heynen, all of whom
anchored Michigan's lines in the
past few years.
Visitors are welcome at practice
and Saturday scrimmages, and

The Wolverines displayed no
partiality with U. of D. pitching.
Ed Drabezyk relieved O'Donnell
with one gone in the fifth and was
promptly greeted with a double
into the left field corner b pinch
hitter Neil MacDonald "on the
first pitch. That inning was good
for four more runs.
Finishing their most fruitful
slugging production of the youth-
ful campaign, Michigan rocked
Drabczyk for three additional
scores in the eighth.
Sealby started it with a double
into right field, came across on
lanky Bill Roman's single, who in
turn was home safely on a three-
bagger by third baseman Dave
Brown, Dickey's third safety of
the day then drove in Brown.

Track Performances Impress Coach
By CHUCK KOZOLL
Capacity performances by
Michigan's sophomore-laden track
team at the recent Quantico re-!
lays gave Coach Don Canham
flashes of hope as the squad
bears down in preparation for
Saturday's Ohio Relays.
"Michigan and Ohio were the
two outstanding teams in the
meet," noted Coach Canham. He
added that this was the team's
best show so far this season, with
the sprinters and distance men
showing the most improvement.
Leading the parade for the Wol-
verines was the sprint medley
team, which sliced two seconds
off the previous Quantico mark.
"The sprint group did especially
well with Pete Parker out of the
relay contest, after his injury on
Monday," commented Canham.
Don Matheson's :49.6 lead-off
leg in the sprints was outstand-
ing, noted Canham, since he went
the distance in the outside lane
on the rain-swept Quantico track.
Sophomore sprinters Freeman
Watkins and Joe Christie's speedy
efforts in Virginia were two en-
couraging factors along with the
1:53 half-mile by Earl Deardorff.
Turning in duplicate times of
1:56 in the half-mile, Bruce
Fischer and Robin Varian added
strength in the distance depart-
ment. "Fischer did his best work
this season by clipping two sec-
onds from his best previous time,"
Representing the 1959 track
team, freshman Dave Martin was
a double star with a fifth place
in the 880-y#i. run and a very
respectable mile run, bettering
the freshman record with a 4:20.9
time. "We'll be expecting a lot
from him," noted Michigan's
ham's honor roll with excellent
work over the high and low
hurdles. "Brendan O'Reilly sur-
prised us with his showing in the
discus along with his consistency
in the high jump," added Coach
Tying for first in the collegej
group but third in total competi-
tion, Mamon Gibson soared 13'6"
in the rainy weather along with
Stan Lyons, Dick Bowers, and Jim
Weaver, all of OSU.
