DICK RADATZ
... probable Spartan hurler

By DAVE ANDREWS
Michigan's baseball team hosts,
Michigan State at 3:30 p.m. today
in the Conference opener for both<
teams.7
The two rivals met earlier this,
year in the Seminole Baseball
Tournament in Florida, with MSU7
squeaking out a 1-0 win. Capt.
Dick Radatz shut out the Wolver-
ines on nine hits.
Radatz, a 6'5", 240-lb. right-
hander, is expected to start again
this afternoon in quest of his sec-
ond victory over Coach Don
Lund's young team. ' Lund has
named junior righthander Al
Koch to do the pitching. Koch
possesses a 3.81 earned run aver-
age.
Southpaws Hurl Tomorrow
He has gained one win so far.
this year, a 4-1 conquest of East-
ern Michigan. In his last start he
gave up four hits and two runs in
his three innings of pitching
against Wayne State.
Lund is planning to use Bob
Marcereau and Nick Liakonis in
the doubleheader at State tomor-
row. Marcereau and Liakonis, who
pitched three scoreless innings
each against Wayne, are left-
handers and should fare better
than a righthander on the Michi-
gan State diamond.
The short right field fence at
MSU is built for the Spartans'
lefthanded plate power. Both first
baseman Bill Schudlich and Al
Luplow have good power from the
left side. The leading Spartan
batter is John Russell, with a plus
.400 average.
Both Teams Young
Spartan coach John Kobs will
start at least four sophomores.
He says that his team is young
and inexperienced but that it has
potential and could surprise some-
one.

Lund's Wolverines are also
young. The team tomorrow will
be made up of two sophomores,
six juniors, and only one senior.
His two hurlers for tomorrow's
double-header also are juniors.
The Wolverines, while they
have only compiled a 4-7 record,
have been constantly improving.
Each game someone else has
proved himself capable of play-
ing top-notch ball. Wilbur Frank-
lin has shown that he can hit
collegiate pitching, as has John
Halstead. Dave Brown has handled
the hot corner capably and first
baseman Bill Roman keeps get-
ting better.
Lack Power So Far
The Wolverines have proved
that they can hit singles and
Lund is confident that they will
soon start hitting the ball for
extra bases. Roman and Brown
have the power and maybe now
that the Conference season is get-
ting under way they may start
hitting the long ball.
Today's game will be the 123rd
renewal in the 75-year span of
the Wolverine-Spartan baseball
series. So far Michigan leads in
the long series, 78 games to 43.

The University Golf Course
a championship course in eve
respect," said Coach Bert Katz
meyer, whose team will host 1
Big Ten meet on May 22-23.
The golf course is ideally sut
for the meet, but it also off ers
stiff challenge to the thousan
of students who play it ea
season.
The tough par-three holes see
ingly ask for birdies but anxio
golfers often end up with bac
breaking double, bogeys. Thep

The second hole with the hi
elm standing in the middle of t
fairway, the 10th with its tw
stroke penalty for drives hook
out of bounds, and the long h:
12th all require superbly play
shots.

said Katzenmeyer. This hole re-
quires an excellent tee shot be-
cause the fairway rises very
sharply immediately in front of
the tee. A low drive that catches
the bank will generally stop dead
and will cost a golfer several
strokes.
It also takes an extremely ac-
curate second shot played with a
long iron to reach the green.
Sometimes even that isn't good
enough, as the tricky green is
often three-putted.
Greens are the most important
part of a good course, mainly be-
cause about 50 per cent of one's
shots are played on the greens.
Nicknamed 'The Blue Course,' the
University course has some of the
finest in the state. There are very
few straight putts on the entire
course.

ole Breaking Putts
Putts that appear straight gen-
e, erally will break one way or the
other due to the cut of the green
or because the entire green slopes
gently to one side or the other.
When golf architects McKenzie
and Maxwell designed this course
they meant it for championship
play. These men are k n o w n
around the world for their design
work. Among their masterpieces is
the Augusta National Golf Course,
which is the annual site of the
world famous Masters golf tour-
nament.
Construction was started on the
"M" course in 1928 and was fin-
ished in 1930. The course was offi-
cially opened on Sept. 26 of that
year. It has since been revised and
many of the original fairway
traps that used to catch erratic
drives have been removed.
Toughened Again
This made the course a little
easier to play, but now it is being
toughened for the collegiate golf-
ers in May.
"The fairways will be made nar-
rower," course manager Jack Blott
said, "and the rough will be al-
lowed to grow. Some of the nu-

merous traps surrounding ' the
greens are being enlarged and dug
deeper, and the greens made even
larger than they already are."
With these added hazards, the
course should be too tough for
anyone to break the course rec-
ord held by Johnny Fisher. Fish-
er, who played under Ray Court-
right for the Maize and Blue fired
an eight-under-par 64 in 1934.
Site of Many Tourneys
The beauty and the tough play
that the University Course offers
has made it extremely popular
with tournament officials. In the
past 12 years it has been the site
of the NCAA tourney, the Big Ten
meet, the USGA National Junior
Championships, the Western Jun-
ior Championship (twice), and
the JC International Champion-
ships.
.In 1949, the last time the Big
Ten meet was here the Wolverines
won with a team score of 1949.
The individual honors were shared
by Ed -Schalon of Michigan and
Fred Wampler of Purdue with 299.
Since then many tournaments
have been played. There have
been many good shots played on
the Blue Course and also many
bad ones, but seldom are there
two shots exactly the same.
That, plus the facts mentioned
above, back up Coach Katzen-
meyer in his statement, "This is
undoubtedly one of the finest col-
legiate owned golf courses in the
country." It's a great one to play.
