TUCSON - The Michigan base-
* ball team took it on the chin yes-
terday as the Wildcats of Arizona
ran wild with a 16-7 win. It was
the Wolverine's fifth defeat out of
six contests with the Wildcats on
this opening western trip.
It looked like the Wolverines
would have an easy time of it as
they jumped on Arizona pitcher
Tom Dirks for two runs in the
first inning. With one out, Dan
Fife walked and moved to second
on a wild pitch, and Tom Ket-
tinger, the rookie who is having a
great start for the Wolverines,
then singled to left and drove in

runs in their half of the first in-
ning, but in the top of the second,
the Wolverines put themselves
right back into the lead with four
more runs.
Reggie Ball opened the Wolver-!
ine attack that inning with a walk
And moved to second when Gene
Lanthorn grounded out. Mark
Carow singled to left, but Ball had
to stop at third. Then Fife used
his speed to beat out a bunt which
scored Ball, and Tom Lundstedt
followed with a single up the mid-
dle scoring Carrow and sending
Fife to third. On the throw in
?rom centerfield, Lundstedt alertly
took second base. That, however,
was not the end of this play, for
when the third baseman for the
Wildcats took the throw, he threw
wild in an attempt to nail down
Lundstedt. As a result of the
Mets'-like folly, Fife scored and
Lundstedt moved' on to third.
Lundstedt closed out the scoring
when Bower beat out a hit to
third. The result of this wild half,
inning was a 6-4 Wolverine lead.
In the bottom of the second the
Wildcats scored just 'once and
Michigan's lead managed to hold
up until the.,bottom of the fourth
when the Wildcats exploded for
five runs to capture the. lead for
THE WOLVERINES rallied for
one more run in the sixth inning
when, pinch hitter Mike Bowen
beatnout "anbunt, Carrow doubled
to deep right field and Lund-
stedt slashed a single to left which
scored Bowen.
For the Wildcats, the two main
offensive cannons were Mannie
Driscoll and Skip Mikulic. Mikulic
had a perfect day with five singles
and a walk, drove in five runs and
scored three himself.
Driscoll collected four base hits
with one run batted in and also:
scored three.
The pitching for the Wolverines
was all but impressive. Gene Lan-
thorn only lasted for one and one-
third innings as he gave up five
earned runs, walked three and
failed to strike out . a batter.
Mickey Elwood, who relieved Lan-
thorn, was even less effective as
six runs were scored off hiI. Mike
Hilkene pitched in the sixth and
yielded one run. The final pitcher
for Michigan was Tom Fleszar,
who worked the last two innings
and had just as exasperating a

Rudy Tomjanovich, Michi-
gan's great All-American bas-
ketball ace, signed a three year
contract yesterday with the San
Diego Rockets for an estimated
$600,000. Rudy was the Rockets'
first choice in Monday's NBA
Tomjanovich thrilled Wol-
verine fans for three years on
the way to becoming Michigan's
leading rebounder and second-
leading scorer of all time. He
compiled a scoring average of
30.1 points per game in Michi-
gan's recent campaign.

three earned runs.
FOR ARIZONA, Frank Dirks
pitched for one and one-third
innings, giving up five runs. How-
ever, his reliever, Bill Shields, was
very effective as he went seven

just one run and striking out six.

Both Michigan and the leader,
Florida State, played yesterday on
the Biltmore Country Club which
Newton claimed "is the easier of
the two courses that the tourna-

Wolverines continue the tourna-
ment on the LeJeune Country

Darkness halted the day's activi-
ties while a few of the contestants
were still finishing their rounds
so opening round play will not be
completely finished until ,tomor-
row morning. One of the players
caught out on the course was re-
ported to be three under par
with three holes left to play. The
leader in the clubhouse had a two

After this tourney, the golf team
had another two weeks to practice
before they enter the Kepler In-
vitational held in Columbus, Ohio.
The' Wolverine links hopes for
the rerhainder of the tournament
rest squarely on the shoulders of
Erskine and Mohan, first-round
leaders for Michigan. In addition,
Balliet must improve on his poor
82 if the squad is to climb.

"I can promise you that our

Normally, you digest a bland
tidbit of coaching rhetoric like
this with a heavy salting. But
when Doc Counsilman cooks up
this statement about his Hoosiers
for the NCAA Swimming Cham-
pionships, you can't swallow this
heavy stuff without choking.
Since Indiana swimmers own a
large share of the fastest times

LANSING (/P) - The Michigan
. Court -of Appeals has cleared the
way for Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity's Earle B. Higgins to play pro-

Higgins was picked by San Fran-
cisco in the third round of this
week's National Basketball Asso-
ciation draft of college players.
The Appeals Court ruled yes-
terday it was unfair for a judge
to prohibit . Higgins from playing
college or professional sports while

day in Salt Lake City for the start

With Indiana reigning, peren-.

UCLA, SMU, Long Beach State,
and maybe Michigan will only be
battling for second best. And for
Michigan, the going will not be
Michigan coach Gus Stager
views the situation rather realis-
tically saying, "We've got a
chance to place from second to
sixth, but I'm not counting points
"If we're going to finish any-
where, (Gary) Kinkead and
(Juan) Bello will have to swim
well. in all of their events; the
freshmen and sophomores will
have to come through in the but-
terfly, back and medleys; and
we'll have to antipate fine per-
formances from the divers."
Filling this tall order will take
some doing, but Stager finds some
optimistic indications from the
practices. "Bello is returning to
form and (Steve) McCarthy * nd
the other backstrokers have been
sparkling." x
Michigan has strong points in
the individual medley, backstroke,
butterfly and middle distance
freestyle. Workhorses Kinkead and
Bello will try to repeat their per-
formances 'of last year, Kinkead
in the 400 IM and 200 backstroke,
Belo in the 100 and 200 free and
possibly the 100 fly. Veteran junior
Bill Mahoney will swim the breast-
stroke events.
The remainder of the squad, not
surprisingly, is comprised of sophs

and frosh. The individual medley
and butterfly events are the spe-
cialties of Don Peterson, Ray Mc-
Cullough and Tim Norlen, with
Peterson adding his talent to Mc-
Carthy in the backstroke. McCul-
lough also swims freestyle.
Dave Clark joins Mahoney in
breaststroke duties, and soph Byr-
on McDonald will concentrate in
the fly. All finished well in the
Big Ten Finals last month.
Besides individual competition,
these swimmers will form some
fairly strong relays, especially the
800 free and 400 medley relay.
Last year, Michigan edged out
Yale for fourth, due in a large
part of the success of the divers.
While Yale won't be there this
year, part of the burden of suc-
cess will *"still remain with the
Three will be making the trip,
a fourth of the team being sent
to Utah. Two divers. Dick Rydze
and Bruce McManaman, are ex-
perienced scoring veterans, while
junior Al Gagnet will be making
his national debut.
Coach Dick Kimball eyes the
competition at bit warily. "Last
year, the NCAA's were strictly
Big Ten grounds. Now we expect
a little more rivalry with West
Coast and Florida schools, besides
Indiana, Ohio State, Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Michigan State."
Kimball still feels, though, that
his divers should give Jim Henry
and front-running Indiana a good
battle, and may even out-point
them overall.
