Wolverij
Lack Hc
By TOM WITECKI
Michigan's improving baseball
team, winner of its last three
games, is still looking for its first
home run after four home contests
at FerryField.
The Wolverines blasted five
round - trippers in seven games
down South, but haven't smashed
one drive over the four-foot picket
fence that bounds the local sta-
dium's outfield.
Head Baseball Coach Don Lund
expressed both surprise and con-
cern over his club's recent lack
of home run. punch.

"We have the potential to hit
the long ball; we showed that in
Florida. Thus, it really is unusual
that we haven't been able to click
for at least one big blow since
we've been back," he said.
More Punch In Florida
At the Florida State Tourna-
ment, Michigan displayed a great
deal more batting punch than it
has at home. Dave Brown and Bill
Roman had two homers apiece
and Dick Syring belted one.
n In addition, the pitching the
Wolverines have been facing, with
one exception, has not been of the
same caliber they'll hit against
once the Big Ten season begins.
Only University of Detroit's
sophomore star Gary Mettie, who
set the Wolverines down with one
earned run and eight scattered hits
in winning at Ferry Field two
weeks ago, can be judged as a
really top-flight hurler.
Good Team Average
While thehome nine hasnbeen
lacking in home run punch in
recent contests, it has managed to
compile a respectable team bat-
ting average of .284.
Leading the Michigan batters is
hustling third baseman Dave
Brown, hittirig an even .400. The
junior from Battle Creek also
leads the team in the all-impor-
tant RBI column, with 11 to his
credit.
Sophomore Wilbur Franklin, the
team's regular left fielder although
he has appeared in only four con-
tests, follows Brown with 6 hits in
16 attempts for a .375 average.
First baseman Roman, one of the
many junior lettermen on the
squad, is third with a .348 mark.
Capable of Long Ball
These three players are among
several in the Michigan lineup
whom Lund feels are capable of
hitting the long ball. Brown and
Roman each socked a couple of

four-baggers last spring while just
sophomores.
Another powerful bat that has
been silent this season is that of
catcher Jim Dickey. The senior
backstop,' who last season was one
of the Wolverines' leading hitters
and led the team in RBI's, has ex-
perienced a poor spring thus far,
batting only .259 with just 2 RBI's.
Lund, along with Michigan fans,
is hoping that Dickey and the
other potentially-powerful batters
will finally burst forth with power-
hitting as well as base hits when
the Wolverines meet Michigan
State in the Conference opener
Friday at Ferry Field.

For Loyalty ..
ONLY 100 STUDENTS showed up at the Undergraduate Library
Tuesday evening to hear Bennie Oosterbaan and Bump Elliott
talk about Michigan football. But the slim crowd got two full hours
of spirited discussion for its loyalty.
Oosterbaan, in his first year as Athletic Department Public Rela-
tions Director, left no doubts that he will be able to handle the job.
He answered every question with his usual sincerity, and often added
a touch of humor, even though some of the questions were quite
pointed-and a few of the students were obviously "out to get" the
former coach.
Elliott's casual personality, plus his modest and sincere manner
when discussing his new head coaching position, was also heightened
by a touch of wit.
The combination succeeded in answering questions so proficiently
that the gathering hesitated to break up even after two hours. The
results, of course, were a number of comments that deserve repeating:
Oosterbaan started the evening off by informing the group that
when the Union first planned the session it was to be entitled "What's
Wrong with Michigan Football?"
"Bump and I were quick to assure them that simply 'Michigan
Football' would be a suitable title," the former coach explained.
Elliott happily pointed out that there are more players out for
spring practice than he ever expected. "But this has its drawbacks
too," he explained. "We have to work with all of them-and added to
this is the job of getting new coaches used to the setup, and teaching
everyone a new offense.
"But we will never cut anyone from the squad, I believe the foot-
ball team belongs to the student body, and everyone has the right to
try out. Of course, they won't all play-and many will drop off-but I
won't cut them."
* *. * *
Elliott was dubious about trying to evaluate the team, since he
feels he isn't in a position to as yet. "If I say anything, it will have to
be that we are a little short of talent," he said.
"But the coaching staff is prepared to make up for that. We're
a pretty prolific group-all six of us have at least three children. If
we can't recruit players, we'll grow our own. Our only hope is that we
can hold the job that long."
* * * *
After both Oosterbaan and Elliott tried to explain the lack of a
pass defense last fall by "a lack of the proper instinct and conscien-
tiousness on the players," the young head coach removed all doubt:
"Well, I was responsible for pass defense, so they simply got rid of
me-now they have a new backfield coach, and we can all hope he will
do a better job."
A number of references were made to the Michigan-Iowa series.
Elliott has a special interest in this traditional game, since he spent
four years on the Hawkeye coaching staff.
"We hadn't lost to them since 1924," Oosterbaan pointed out,
"until last fall, when Bump was on our side."
"But I don't want to take the credit for that," Elliott replied. "It's
bad enough when I think about all the work I did recruiting and
coaching guys like Fleming (Willie, All-Big Ten halfback and star
of the Rose Bowl game), Jauch (Ray, leading ground gainer in the Big
Ten), Jeter (Bob, top ground gainer among second-string backs in the
Big Ten), and, of course, Duncan (Randy, All-American and All-Big
Ten quarterback).
"No, I won't try to schedule California," Elliott answered to one
question. (His brother Pete is head coach for the Bears.) "I didn't
plan to get them on the schedule. There's no need for brothers to put
each other out of a job."
Spirit Makes a Difference . .
WHEN ASKED if spirit in the student body had any effect on the
team, Elliott had a dual response.
"When the boys are on the field," he said, "they are too intent
on the game. You can't tell how interested the fans are then. If a guy
is out there to play the best game possible, the crowd won't make the
slightest difference.
"But off the field the campus spirit can make a difference. If the
students talk about the team, and seem' interested, the players will
know it and appreciate it."
It's perhaps a shame that more students weren't there Tuesday
night to hear this response. The Union tried something new--a talk
on football-and it's hard to tell if it was a success or, a failure. There
were only 100 students there, out of a possible 20,000-plus, which is a
little discouraging. But, on the other hand, those who were there
seemed to enjoy it-and one can be sure that they all know a little
bit more about football at Michigan.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon fired both
barrels at opponents yesterday as
its "A" and "B" softball teams
took the measure of the opposition.
In the "A" contest SAE beat
Sigma Phi Epsilon, 9-4, and in the
"B" tilt Phi Gamma Delta was
swamped, 25-2.
The latter was not the only high
scoring game, however. The "B"
clash between Sigma Alpha Mu
and Delta Sigma Phi, too, was
highlighted by power hitting.
The Sammies with a 25-hit at-
tack, including seven home runs,
romped over the Delt Sigs, 34-1.
Stars for the winners were Lowell
Stone, who hit three home runs,

and Mandel Schenk, who homered
twice.
Also totaling 25 hits was Theta
Delta Chi in its "B" win over Tau
Kappa Epsilon, 33-1. For the win-
ners, Bob McMahon homered three
times and Emory Griffin twice.
Other "A" action saw Zeta Beta
Tau trounce Acacia, 17-4, and Zeta
Psi outscore Chi Phi, 16-11. In a
close "A" contest, Sigma Phi edged
Delta Chi, 13-11.
Games were played, however, in
which the scores did not run so
rampant. In three "A" contests,
Phi Sigma Kappa defeated Lamb-
da Chi Alpha 11-6, Sigma Chi
trimmed Sigma Nu, 6-3, and Psi
Upsilon downed Kappa Alpsa Psi,
9-6.

traveling silver trophy Saturday
and Sunday at Base Line Lake 18
miles from Ann Arbor.
The cup is in honor of the two
Michigan students who lost their
lives on a canoe trip in northern
Quebec last September.
Club Officers
Cary was president of the Mich-
igan Sailing Club last year while
Price would have been race chair-
man this yeair.
Otto Scherer, this year's Club
president, said he hopes the list
of teams will eventually swell to
eight.
Competing will be University of
Detroit, Notre Dame, Wayne State,
Wisconsin, Northwestern and
Michigan.
The Wolverine sailors are heavi-
ly favored to keep the cup on the
Michigan campus. They have beat-
en all of the teams entered at
least once so far this season.
A skippers' meeting is scheduled
for 9 a.m. Saturday at the racing
site with races slated to begin an
hour later. Racing Sunday morn-
ing will begin at 10:30.
10 Races Slated
Ten races are scheduled in each
of ten divisions. Dexter Thede, one
of the outstanding skippers in the
nation, will guide Michigan's Jet
14 sloop in the "A" division while
Scherer will skipper the Wolverine
craft in the "B" competition.
The race course will be either a
mile or 11/2 miles, depending upon
wind, conditions at the time.
This is the heart of the racing
season for the Michigan Sailing
Club which has been organized
since 1938.
Two weeks ago the Club won the
Purdue Spring Invitational meet
with Thede and Ron Sission skip-
pering "A" and "B" divisions re-
spectively.
However, last weekend the Wol-
verines fared their worst- in four
years. They placed sixth out of 12
entries at the MIT meet.
