SIX WEEKS OF SUMMER football practice at Michigan came to a close
yesterday, as Coach H. O. (Fritz) Crisler and his seconds in command
drove their charges through a rigorous two hour and 20 minute Intra-squad
game that provided a wide variety of entertainment for the surprisingly
large crowd of approximately 3,500 persons, who braved a steady rain to'
witness the event.
To the spectator, Michigan's possibilities for 1945 looked quite
promising indeed, as the lads charged up and down the field with great
enthusiasm to score a total of 10 touchdowns. Offensively speaking, the
Wolverines did more than all right.
Obviously, the defense showed a few leaks here and there. In their
desire to cross the goal line the boys seemed to forget at times that there
is also some advantage in keeping the other fellow from doing the same
thing, that you usually have to do more than score points to win any kind
of an athletic contest.
STRANGELY ENOUGH, advance notices predicted some sort of defensive
battle for the afternoon fray. That prediction was borne out by a week
of intensive drills stressing defensive tactics, after the coaches had spotted
numerous weakness in that department during last week's 66-0 rout of the
Junior Varsity by the Blue-shirted regular squad.
Either the gridders-to-be failed to learn their lessons or they had
learned their offensive maneuvers too well, for whatever else it may
have been, yesterday's workout definitely was not a classic in the art
of football defense.
Orchids for individual showing must go to fullback Danny Dworsky, a
190-pound bruiser from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, who packs a lot of
punch on his stocky frame. Dworsky didn't even get into the game last
week, being kept out by an injury, but his presence was much in evidence
DWORSKY SCORED a couple of touchdowns for himself, among other
things, and did a lot of ball-carrying besides, bulling his way up through
the middle time after time for appreciable gains. While he still has a lot
to learn about the fine points of playing the always difficult fullback position
under the Crisler system, he earned himself a lot of favorable recognition
for his efforts.
At this stage of the game Michigan does not boast anything closely
resembling a triple-threat' tailback, something that is always nice to
have around. Bob Teninga, a Chicago freshman with a lot of speed,
has established himself as the best runner of the current crop, but
leaves much to be desired in the passing and punting departments.
Pete Elliot, a Navy transfer from Illinois, heads the list of passers, while
none of the men available for the job have done much in the way of
This shortage in the triple-threat department may be relieved when
Jack Weisenburger, a third string holdover from last season, shows up
for fall practice. Weisenburger came along in a hurry near the end of
last season and may turn out to be just what the doctor ordered for the
role. He is a fast and elusive runner, a better than average passer, and a
very good punter, and boasts plenty of determination and willingness for
good measure. Nobody would be much surprised to see him step into a first
string berth before the opening whistle blows for the curtain-raiser against
Great Lakes, Sept. 15.

DETROIT, Aug. 11-Johny Lazor's
two successive homers, the second
with two men on base, went for
nothing today as the Detroit Tigers
clung to a one-run lead behind
George Caster's relief chucking to
edge the Boston Red Sox 5 to 4 and
protect their one-game American
The Tigers tagged the Boston
starter, George Woods, for seven hits
-five of them for extra bases -in
the first two innings to pile up a 5-0
lead before Lazor belted his first
homer in the fourth with nobody
on base and his second in the fifth,
scoring behind Byron La Forest and
Tom McBride, who had singled, to
make it 5-4.
Caster, who reported yesterday fol-
lowing his acjuisition from the St.
Louis Browns, put out the fire in the
fifth and gave only two hits in his
four and one-third inning trick.
Mueller, however, gained credit for
his fourth victory.
Woods steadied to hurl five straight
hitless innings after his ragged start
and the only Tiger blow after the
second frame was Rudy York's single
in the eighth off Mike Ryba.
Joe Hoover's triple accounted for
the first Detroit run in the opening
inning andedoubles by Bob Maier,

Concluding six weeks of summer
football practice yesterday in the sec-X
ond intra-squad game of the semes-
ter, a determined Michigan White
squad overcame a stubborn Blue -
eleven, 40-27, as the losers scored
successive touchdowns in the latter
stages of the contest to come within
two goals of catching the Whites.
Splitting his first two elevens in
half, Coach H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler
started his first string backfield be-
hind a second team line and his top
linesmen in front of a reserve back-
field, instead of following the prece-
dent set in last week's game, when
the leading candidates started for
the Blues against a White junior
Whites Never Headed
The triumphant White eleven was
never headed after it broke a 7-7
deadlock early in the game, which
consumed two hours and 20 minutes ;
of playing time. Although the vic-
tors were successful in several, passI
attempts, they reliedachiefly on run-
ning plays in their attack.
First blood was drawn by the
Whites, after three fumbles, an ex-
change of punts, an intercepted pass,
and a fumble onutheir own two-yard
line put the Blues in a vulnerable
position. Walt Teninga, 17-year-old
left halfback who scored four of last
week's 10 touchdowns, took the ball
across on a wide end sweep, and
Capt. Joe Ponsetto converted success-
The Blues got the seven points
back after a sustained drive by full-
back Danny Dworsky, halfback War-
ren Bentz, and tailback Wes Muel-
der carried from the Blue32-yard line
to the White six, where Dworsky
took the ball over the middle to the
Ponsetto Goes Over
The Whites roared back, with half-
back Hank Fonde carrying the ball
most of the way from his own 32 to
the Blue 22, and Capt. Joe Ponsetto
finding no receiver on a pass play,
running the rest of the distance to
scoring territory. The conversion
was unsuccessful, and the score stood
Another White score was regis-
tered after two fumbles by the Blues
placed the ball on the Blue 19. Ten-
inga finally went over for the score
on a double lateral play around right
end. The conversion, again unsuc-
cessful, put the score at 26-7.
The Blues got their second touch-
down to bring the count to 26-14,
diving from the enemy 39 to the
27-yard line before Earl Albright
went straight through the middle of
the opposing line to paydirt.
Dworsky Scores Secoftd Touchdown
Several punt exchanges finally
placed the ball on the White 12-yard
line, where the leaders took over to
march down the field on running
plays by Dworsky, Pete Elliot, and
Bentz until Dworsky went over from
the eight-yard line, making the score
The final White Tally came when
runs by Fonde and two successful
passes to end Ed Bahlow, the last
one a,41-yard touchdown heave, took
the ball over the goal line. The con-

CHICAGO, Aug. 11 -OP)- Dutch
Leonard and his knuckle ball cooled
off the previously torrid White Sox
today and the big right hander
pitched Washington to an easy 11-2
victory before 4,821 fans.
Leonard was the complete master
as he -won his 13th victory of the
season. In the fourth inning he gave
the Sox two hits, with Kerby Farrell
scoring, and in the sixth he served
a home run ball o Johnny Dickshot
but the rest of the way Chicago did
not even threaten.
Meanwhile his mates were club-
bing Orval Grove for seven hits and
five runs in the first inning, and
they continued the attack on Frank
Papish, who came to Grove's rescue,
during the next four frames, scoring
six more runs.

Intra-Squad Grid Game
Bernie Bierman, head football
coach at the University of Minne-
sota, has announced that there will
be no intra-squad football game at
the end of this summer's practice.
Bierman gave as his reasons the
short time lie has to work with his
men, and the limited amount of men
he has to work with.
Daily turnouts have been averaging
less than 45 men. Of this number, 35
are newcomers, including 17 year old
freshmen, Navy transfers who came
on campus July 1, and discharged
Because of late classes which all
navy men are enrolled in, Bierman
must limit his drills to two hours a
The all-out fall practice will begin
September 3, and will include two
workouts a day.nThe members of the
team who are in the navy units on
the campus will not be able to partake
in contemplated morning drills.
