If I had to pick a "Dubious Distinction" award for my career
4 as a collegiate sportswriter, I guess it would have to be the fact
that I was the first Daily sports editor in 17 years not to witness a
Big Ten championship 'for the Wolverines, in any sport, during my
term in office.

tionship between the two, but I've been accused of worse ...

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Yesterday was'
opening day at Tiger Stadium but
Detroit's big guns were apparent-
ly still busy patrolling the city's
streets, as the visiting Boston Red
Sox were able to coast to a 7-3
victory over the Tigers, spoiling
the Bengal's debut before .41,429
hometown fans.
Led by Carl Yastrzemski's two'
solo homers - the second an in-
side-the-park jobbie - and short-
stop Rico Petrocelli's three RBIs,
the BeantownrBoys demonstrated
to this year's pennant favorites
that last year's pennant winners
are not to be taken for patsy
Dick Ellsworth, a Chicago Cub
reject, was' the Bosox starting
pitcher and kept Detroit's Fat
Cats pretty much under control
during his nine-inning stint, aid-
ed by execllent low-ball control
and a tricky herky-jerk pitching
Earl Wilson, Ellsworth's oppon-
ent, was plagued by control prob-
lems and lasted only five innings,
giving up five runs and eight hits
in a lackluster performance'. The
only bright spot of the day for
Wilson came in the third inning
when he socked Ellsworth's first
pitch into the left field upper
deck. Though Ellsworth may be
a good low-ball pitcher, Wilson is
a superb low-ball hitter.
The Red Sox opened the scor-
ing in the second inning when

Michigan lost 5-2 to Easterr
Michigan University in the home
opener yesterday afternoon.
Dave Renkiewicz threw five and
a third innings giving up six hits
and three walks, allowing four of
the five runs. Larry Guidi came
in to ,relieve Renkiewicz in the
bottom of the 6th. He was touched
for one hit and the last run.
The trouble started in the ear-

two runs in the first and another
in the second.

It is commonly assumed among members of the Michigan ath-
* letic department that Bump had better "win or else" next season.
This has not only put a great .deal of pressure on Elliott, but also
on his assistant coaches. If Bump were to be fired after next season,
so, in all likelihood, would his aides - unless Bump were to be
quietly phased out and into an administrative position, with one
of his assistants being named head coach.
Enter Tcony Mason, offensive line coach "and long regarded
as perhaps Elliott's top assistant. Mason has made it known that
he intends to stick it out only one more' year at Michigan, that
is, unless he were to be named head coach upon Elliott's "retire-
ment." A possibility - but the betting is that the next Michigan
football coach will come from outside the present athletic de-
partment. Everyone already here has too many enemies.
Perhaps to confuse the situation even more, Michigan has just
appointed a new athletic director, track coach Don Canham. Canham,
0 is a shrewd businessman and will not feel obligated to stick with'
any leftovers from Fritz Crisler's regime if they do not seem to be
properly fulfilling their role in realizing Canham's announced prime
goal, "to fill up Michigan Stadium and the Events Building."
Canham was once heard to say before his appointment that
the first job of the new athletic director "should be to fire five
or six coaches." Cause for any Michigan coach to gulp, especiallyj
# those in basketball and football, which must produce to bring in
the revenue.
