Michigan Drills Hard

For

USC Tilt Saturday

By CARL RISEMAN
Michigan's f o o t b a 11 squad
'sweated it out' on Ferry Field yes-
terday afternoon.
The team participated in one
of its most grueling practices of
the year as it prepared for the
Saturday showdown with South-
ern California.
Leave Tomorrow
A practice will be held this
afternoon and a final session will
probably be held tomorrow morn-
ing just before the Wolverines de-
part for the West Coast.
A ttention!
I-M Notice
All I-M Athletic Managers from
social fraternities, professional
fraternities and i n d e p e n d e n t
teams are asked to a tend meet-
ings today at 7:30 p. in the I-M
Building.
Anyone interested in officiating
touch football this fall should
meet with George Hopper at the
I-M Building tomorrow at 4:30
p.m.

For better than three hours the
team scrimmaged and went
through the finer points of the
game in preparation for Satur-
day's contest.
The 'red shirts' ran Southern
California plays against the regu-
lars, and the varsity was quite
successful in stopping the reserves'
attack.
Michigan's varsity took to the
offensive later in the day and
was momentarily stalled by the
spirited red shirt' defense, but
led by the sensational running of
right halfback Brad Myers soon
began to gain ground against a
game but tired reserve squad.
Myers Impressive
Myers, who has been running
behind Mike Shatusky and Fred
Julien up until yesterday, appar-
ently has impressed the coaching
staff greatly. It is quite probable
that he will move ahead of Julien,
and play second-string this week-
end.
Both Myers and Julien are
sophomores, and great things are
expected of them in the coming
three years. Julien has been suf-
fering from leg injuries this fall,
and this may account partially for
Myers promotion.
One especially bright note of

the afternoon was trainer Jim
Hunt's report of no injuries. He
stated that all the players would
be able to play in Saturday's game
barring unforeseen events.
As the afternoon wore on the
squad showed spirit and determi-
nation. The players on the side-
lines shouted enthusiasticly to
their teammates on the field and
much hustle was shown on the
gridiron.
Coach Oosterbaan climaxed the
afternoon by having his players
run windsprints for the final few
minutes.
