Wolverine Nine
Lose Double Bill

Michigan Tennis Team
Coasts Past Indiana, 9-0

By TOM WITECKI
Special to The Daily
LAFAYETTE - "We finally
found ourselves," chortled Pur-
due's smiling baseball coach Jack
Hoffman, after watching his squad
whip a frustrated Michigan nine
twice yesterday by identical 6-3
scores.
And anyone who watched the
two games couldn't help but agree
with the happy Boilermaker coach
- for his last-place team played
like champions. Taking the field
with a 1-8-1 Big Ten record, Pur-
due proceeded to outplay the Wol-
verines in every facet of the game.
In the pitching department, Jack
Heldkamp 'and Mike Birck com-
bined to hold the Michigan team
to just five hits in the entire
doubleheader.
Five Home Runs
At the same time, Boilermaker
batters blasted two Michigan
pitchers for five home runs, all
of which went over 360 feet.

Shaking his head, Hoffman said,
"We're a good ball club-we've
been that all season., It's just that
the breaks have always gone
against us until today."
On the other side of the field,
where the visiting Wolverines
were preparing for a long bus trip
home, things were not as cheerful.
Only Ten Hits
Yesterday's five hits, coupled
with the five they picked up Fri-
day against Illinois, gave them a
total of ten for three games-an
anemic amount for a squad that
had started the weekend as the
top-hitting club of the Big Ten.
John Halstead, who had been
the conference's leading batter,
experienced a tough weekend,
along with the rest of the Wol-
verine squad. The Bay City sopho-
more went hitless in nine attempts,
seven times yesterday, as he
watched his batting average drop
93 points to .364.
The double loss lowered Michi-
gan's Big Ten record to 5-7 and
dropped it into the depths of the
conference second division.
Two Home Runs
Left-fielder Gerald Zubak's two
home runs off left hander Nick
Liakonis sparked Purdue's attack
in the first game. The blasts, worth
two runs apiece, backed up a fine
pitching performance by southpaw
Heldkamp, who tossed a three-
hitter at the Wolverines.
One of the hits was a two-run
bases-loaded single by Jack Mogk.
This was the key blow in a three-
run Michigan uprising in the sixth
inning.
Wasted in the first game was a
fine relief job 'turned in by Al
Koch, who replaced Liakonis in
the fifth inning and allowed just
one run and two hits over the re-
mainder of the distance, while,
striking out five.
Marcereau Victim
In the nightcap, lefty Bob Mer-
cerau became another home-run
victim. Big Mike Ostrowski slugged
a pair of solo homers, one of
which sailed some 420 feet. Duff
Mackenzie also contributed a
three - run round - tripper to the
Purdue cause.
Michigan got into the act late
in the second game, when third
baseman Dave Brown smashed a
two-run homer over the left cen-
terfield fence. Scoring ahead of
Brown was first-baseman Bill Ro-
man, whose single was Michigan's
only other hit in the second game.
Now, with just three games re-
maining, all at home next week-
end, Michigan will have to hustle
if it hopes to avoid a second con-
secutive finish in the Big Ten
second division.

RECORD-BREAKER-Sophomore star Tony Seth crosses the
finish line after winning another half-mile run. The lanky runner
from British Guiana set an Ohio Stadium mark yesterday when
he covered the half-mile in 1:50.7.

Once again the Wolverines got
the advantage, though, as Erickson
squeezed by with a three-set vic-
tory, 7-9, 6-3, 6-4.
Dubie Plays Well
Gerry Dubie, who has been play-
Ing well for Michigan, once more
pulled out a victory. He easily
manhandled the Hoosiers' captain,
Jack Fitzpatrick, 6-1, 6-2.
Dubie's only loss this season
was to Notre Dame's Don Ralph.
Another 'M' netter who has
managed to earn victories in every'
meet is Bob Sassone. He downed
Harry Garnette, 6-2, 6-2, in num-
ber three singles.
Defeats Hoosier
In the remaining matches, Larry
Zaitzeff, playing number .four
singles, defeated Hoosier Dean
Dixon, 6-3, 6-2; 'M' netter Frank
Fulton, number five singles, down-
ed Ilan Iothmuller, 6-2, 6-4; and
Wayne Peacock added the final
Wolverine singles victory by cap-
turing a 6-1, 6-2 contest from
sophomore Denny Lortz.
In a combined effort, Erickson
and Dubie edged Field' and Dixon
in number one doubles, 7-5, 6-3,
while on the next court Peacock
and Zaitzeff were taking a 6-4, 6-1
victory from Garnette and Fitz-
patrick.
Completing the perfect day for
the Wolverine's were John Wiley
and Fulton. This duo, undefeated
in doubles competition this year,
again chalked up a win by taking
a closely played 7-5, 7-5 win from
Lortz and Rothmuller.
Fine Showing
Michigan, by virtue of its fine
appearances throughout the sea-
son, has been named as the team

to beat at the Conference playoffs
next weekend.
Yesterday was the first match
that the Wolverines have played
on cement courts. This experience
may prove invaluable to them since
the new tennis courts at Michigan
State (where the Big Ten meet is
to be held) are of the same ma-
terial.
The home courts are made of
composition clay and lightly color-
ed brick dust and this lets thes
ball bounce more slowly compared
to the cement courts.

home in the comparatively slow
time of 9:53.

of late, won the broad jump, but
was able to go no further than

ning leap against Quantico Ma-
rines last week.
Shot-putter Joel Boydon won
his specialty with a toss of 50'.
Sweep Hurdles
The Wolverines swept the hurdle
events. Dick Cephas won the 220-
yard low hurdles in :22.9 and Pete
Stanger led the field in the 120-
yard high hurdles. Stanger's win-
ning time for the distance was :15.

the mile relay, discus, high jump
and quarter mile run.
Michigan's mile - relay team
hampered by the absence of Robin-
son and Bryan Gibson, who also,
missed the meet with a leg in-
jury, lost a narrow decision to the
host Buckeyes.
Howie Nourse's jump of 6'4"
was good enough to earn him first
place in the high. jump, while his
teammate Ted Storer won the 440
in the time of :48.8.
Fields Victorious
Bill Fields was the Buckeyes
other winner. His victory came
in the discus.

ite with Illinois for the meet to
