i Opening Day Games

ByS The Associated Press

Cincinnati and Washington
headed the National and Ameri-
can League packs respectively to-
day for at least 24 hours by virtue
r of opening day victories in the
only major league games played,
yesterday.
The Senators' glory especially
may be shortlived, however, as all
teams swing into action this after-
noon.
Cincinnati tipped Pittsburgh,
4-1, while the power-happy Sena-
tors muscled a 9-2 win over Balti-
7 more.
Robinson, Pinson Pace Reds
Frank Robinson and young Vada
Pinson scored or drove in all of
the runs to help the Reds to its
victory over the Pirates.
Bob Purkey pitched all the way
for the Reds and allowed the
Pirates only six hits.'
A full house crowd of 32,190 sat

in chilly 50-degree temperature
under leaden skies for the opener.
The victory was the first in an
opening, game for the Reds in five
seasons.
Robinson had a two-run homer
and drove in another with a single.
Pinson drove in the other tally and
he scored two of the markers.
Kline throttled the Reds with
one hit through the first three
innings before Pinson and Robin-
son went to work on him.
Pedro Ramos pitched in mid-
season style for Washington.
It was a sparkling performance
before Vice-President Nixon and
a crowd of 26,850 who also saw'
Baltimore pull a triple play-the.
first in an opening day in major
league history. The triple" play
came in the fifth inning.
Triandos Ruins Shutout
Ramos, a 23-year-old rubber-
armed right hander, pitched in his

Cuban homeland all winter. He
was deprived of a shutout on
the only really bad ball he
threw. Gus Triandos hammered
that one into the left - center
bleachers in the last inning, scor-
ing Bob Boyd ahead of him.
Harmon Killebrew, the third
baseman who has had his ups and
downs in Washington's system,
and Reno Bertoia, acquired from
Detroit last winter, homered for
the Senators.
Their drives - which brought
Nixon cheering to his feet - ac-
counted for four runs in a fourth-
inning outbreak that wrapped up
the game for the Senators.

SPORT SHORT'S:
CA nadiens,
Celtics Win
In Playoffs
MONTREAL OP-) - The Mon-
treal Canadiens got off to a good
start in quest of their fourth
straight Stanley Cup champion-
ship last night by cooling off the
red hot Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-3,
in the opener of the National
Hockey League Playoff finals.
Marcel Bonin scored the decid-
ing goal at 11:59 of the third
period. He beat Johnny Bower,
the Maple Leaf goalie, by deflect-
ing Henri Richard's shot.
Dickie Modre insured Montreal's
victory three minutes later by
scoring on passes from Bonin and
Henri Richard.
The hard-fought game also
marked the 'return of 'Maurice
(Rocket) Richard, the league's
all-time scoring leader. The 37-
year-old right winger made his
first appearance in the Canadiens'
lineup since Jan. 18 when he suf-
fered an ankle fracture.
He, received a standing ovation
from the capacity crowd of more
than 15,000 in his initial turn on
the ice at the seven minute mark
of the opening period.
Henri Richard, the Rocket's
brother, put the Canadiens in
front 36 seconds after the open-
ing face-off. He tipped in Moore's
effort from close-in. The Maple
Leafs tied the score four minutes
later on a breakaway goal by
speedy Dick Duff.
MINNEAPOLIS W) - Bullseye
Bill Sharman blunted the Minne-
apolis Lakers' last gasp challenge
last night and Boston won the
National Basketball Assn. cham-
pionship' with a 118-113 victory
that gave the Celtics an unprece-
dented sweep of the title playoffs.
Sharman's long one-handed
casts from the sides and behind
the foul circle bailed the Celtics
out of trouble after Bob Leonard
and Elgin Baylor teamed to shoot
the Lakers into the lead.
The 32-year-old veteran fin-
ished with 29 points in one of the
finest hours of his long pro career.
He experienced the minor disap-
pointment, however, of seeing his
record foul shot streak snapped
at 56 when he missed a free throw
in the third period.

DISTANCE MAN-Dave Martin, Michigan's sophomore miler, Will
see action at the Quantico Marine Base tomorrow when the Wol-
verines enter two relay team in the competition. Martin will
team up with Wally Schafer, Tony Seth and Earl Deardorff in
the two-mile event.
Wolverine Rela Teams
To Compete at QuantcO

Rc~woo& g Ross

By MIKE GILLMAN
The top trackmen in the cbun-
try, including a Michigan repre-
sentation, begin competing today
in the third annual Quantico Re-
lays.
Coach Don Canham is bringing
a group of Wolverine thinclads to
one of the major meets of the
outdoor season. Canham's men
will be competing with represen-
tatives of 36 other colleges, clubs,
and military camps for individual
honors and the possible chance of
being chosen for an American all
star team.
AAU Tuneup,
This meet will be a tune up for
the National AAU championships
to be held in Boulder, Col., on
June 19-20. It will be at the
Boulder affair that the American
team for the Russian meet in
July and, the Pan-American
games in August will be chosen.
Michigan will enter men in only,
the second day of the.two-day Re-
lays. Saturday's action will see
coach Canham put together what
is possibly his strongest possible
combination in the mile relay. The
quartet of Bryan Gibson, Tony
Seth, Dick Cephas and Tom Rob-
inson will carry Michigan's hopes
in this event.
Wolverine distance men will get
together for the two mile grind.
Dave Martin, Wally Schafer, Seth
and Earl Deardorff (three sopho-
mores and a junior) will team up
for this one.
The only Wolverine to run in an
individual event will be Marsh
Dickerson in the quarter mile who

wil lhe facing the toughest oppo-
nents of his career. This event is
expected to be the top attraction
of the day, with two former
O1y m p i c champions entered:
Charlie Jenkins of Philadelphia,
who won the 400-meters in the
1956 Games, and Glenn Davis of
Ohio State, the Olympic 400-
meter hurdles winner.
Vaulters To Compete
Michigan is also being repre-
sented by its two ace pole vault-
ers, Eeles Landstrom and Captain
Mamon Gibson. But even Land-
strom, who has topped the 15-ft.
mark will be facing an uphill
battle as the competition includes
the holder of the outdoor pole
vault record of 15-9%, Bob Gu-
towski.
Other top-flight competitors
will include Lee Calhoun of North
Carolina, the Olympic 110-meter
hurdles champion, and Dave Sime
of the Army and Ira Murchison of
Chicago in the 100-yard dash. One
of the top field events will have
Bill Alley of Kansas tossing the
javelin. Just last week, Alley set
a new American record of 270-11/2.
Michigan acquitted itself fa-
vorably in last year's meet by tak-
ing a first and two seconds in re-
lays.
With this meet the Wolverines
start a series of four weekend re-
lay meets. Canham's full squad
had its last taste of competition
last week when the coach chose to
take a full 30-man team to Ohio
University and came away with
an easy win.
