Semi-Finals

- ------_______II

!"

By TOM MARCIN
Sigma Alpha Mu tallied six
runs in the first inning and went
on to defeat Zeta Psi 7-2 in the
semi-finals of the first place fra-
ternity "A" softball play-offs.
Most of the scoring for both
squads was packed into the first
inning. The Zetes gained a short-
lived two run advantage in the
top of the first inning when Mike
Gillman singled with the bases
loaded. The Sammies came back
with a six run outburst in the
bottom of the first. Key blows
were homers by Mike Schiff and
Art Friedman.
D. U. Triumphs
Delta, Upsilon rallied for two
runs in the bottom of the last
inning to edge Sigma Phi Epsilon
4-3, in the second place "A" play-
offs. The.Sig Eps scored two runs
in the top of the inning to take a
3-2 lead, but lost as Bill Bolle
singled in the winning run for
D. U.
Theta Chi pushed across three
runs in the last inning to nip
Theta Xi, 15-13, in a third place
"A" playoff game. Theta Chi had
a big ten run second inning to
take a six run lead, but had to
overcome a one run deficit in the
last inning, as Theta Xi had
battled back in the free hitting
affair.
Four straight bases on balls
forced in the winning run as
Acacia nudged Delta Chi out of
the fourth place "A" play-offs,
7-6.
Chicago Takes Advantage
Chicago took advantage of
sifabby fielding by Greene to beat
the East-Quadders 7-4, in the
second place residence hall "A"
play-offs. Greene took an early
lead but the West-Quadders
came back to score three runs
without a hit in the fourth and
fifth and then bunched their only

three hits with three errors in
the last inning for the victory.
John Garinger's double high-
lighted a six-run third inning as
Lloyd downed Van Tyne 8-5 in
the other second place semi-final
"A" residence hall play-off.
Sigma Alpha Mu ran up a big
score downing Alpha Epsilon Pi
27-4, and Chi Psi turned back Pi
Lambda Phi 8-3, in second place
fraternity "B" play-off games.
The Sammies tallied ten times in
the first and powered their way
to an easy victory.
Navy sunk Physics 11-6 and
Psychology B edged Geography
13-11 in faculty games.

Olympic Hopefuls Clash
In Big Ten Track Meet

BEST IN THE NATION-George Kerr,'star half-miler for Illinois
has been ranked as the top 880 man in the country. Kerr will get
his stiffest competition in this weekend's Big Ten championships
from Michigan's. Tony Seth. Both are likely Olympians in '60.

SPORT SHORTS:
Rookie Driver Killed in Trial Run

By MIKE GILLMAN
Sports fans attending the Big
Ten track and field champion-3
ships here, Friday and Saturday,
will be getting a sneak preview of,
1960 Olympic teammates.
This alone isn't unusual. Track
enthusiasts all over the country
are being treated to the sight of
Olympic hopefuls preparing for
the coming tryouts.
Unusual Situation
What makes this situation dif-
ferent is that the teammates-to-
be are running against each oth-
er, in a country which they will
be competing against in '60.
The two runners? They're
Michigan's great half-miler, Tony
Seth, and his counterpart at Il-
linois, George Kerr.
One of the Wolverines' many'
"sophomore sensations" this year,
Seth is an import from British
Guiana. Kerr, too, is from the
West Indies, Kingston, Jamaica.
For the first time in history,
there will be a West Indian team
entered in the international com-:
petition, and Seth and Kerr will
be among some top flight, much
of which is now prepping for the
affair in the United States.
Rubber Meet
This will be the rubber meeting
between the two. They have never
met until this season, and they
have split in the two times they
have faced each other this far.
Kerr took Seth in a dual meet in
mid-February at Champaign, but
Seth came back to take the big
one at Madison, Wis., the Big Ten
indoor championship, but in an
unimpressive -time.
Kerr, on the other hand, has
been running consistently in the
neighborhood of 1:49. The latest
issue of Track & Field News has
Kerr listed as the number one 880
man in the nation.
Another Problem
As track - coach Don Canham
gloomily points up the strong
points of defending champion, Il-
linois, he adds another problem
for Seth in the 880. Canham sug-
gests that the half could turn in-
to a three-man race, with Kerr's
teammate, Ted Beastall, provid-
ing the Illini with the extra
punch.
However, since Seth and Kerr
look to be the top competitors, the
Caribbean area can't lose, no
matter which man wins. These

two plus Wolverines Tom Robin-
son (Nassau, Bahamas) and Les
Bird (British Antigua) and Illi-
nois' Paul Foreman (Kingston,
Jamaica) and Erwin . Adderley
(Bermuda) will give the Big. Ten
Meet a decided Caribbean flavor.
With this much talent at only
two schools, the next Olympic
Games could see a surprising
point total by the West Indian
representation,as former oppo-
nents join forces.
Tickets on Sale
Tickets for the Big Ten out-
door track championships to be
held at Ferry Field are now on
sale at the Athletic Administra-
tion Building.
The meet begins Friday with
the preliminaries at 4:30, and
finals will be held Saturday at
1 p.m.
Tickets for the day's events
will be one dollar. Student ID's
cannot be accepted as admis-
sion since this is a Big Ten
event and not a school function.

Calif., was injured fatally May 2
in the first of a series of six crashes
.this year. He died Sunday. Unser
was the 49th and Cortner the
50th victims of the famed speed-
way.
Four of the six crashes this year.
involved rookie drivers. The four

other drivers, were only slightly
hurt.

er's test only yesterday.,
After passing the final 130-
mile-an-hour phase he was per-
mitted to drive as fast as he liked.
He was a former champion of
the Bay City Racing Assn. circuit
in northern California.

Netmen Prepare for Conference Meet;
Wolverines Favored To Capture Trophy

Need Ride or iders?

By GARY WRIGHT
Michigan's tennis team, by vir-
tue of a 9-0 victory over Indiana
last weekend, has upped its sea-
son's record to nine wins as op-
posed to a single non-conference
defeat.
Led by captain Jon Erickson,
the Wolverine netmen have pow-
ered their way past strong oppo-
nents Illinois and Western Michi-
gan. Michigan ended the regular
season at the top of the Big Ten
with a 7-0 record.
Lose To Irish
Their only defeat this year was
a 5-4 heartbreaker to a powerful
Notre Dame squad. Last year the
Irish broke the Wolverines' 47

consecutive dual-match victory
skein.
Erickson, up to the present, is
undefeated in Conference play'
having won five consecutive
matches. He has been victorious
in eight of nine matches losing
only to John Cook of Western
Michigan. Cook is rated by many
authorities as one of the top net-
ters in the country.
Captain Looks Good
The Wolverine captain, playing
in the number one singles spot,
has looked best in victories over
Al Holtmann of Illinois and Max
Brown of Notre Dame. Holtmann
had previously won 29 of 31
matches before bowing to Erick-
son. Brown was named to the

second team NCAA All-American
squad last season.
Sophomore Gerry Dubie has
played excellent tennis in taking
nine of ten matches. He has
dropped but two sets all spring,
both coming at the hands of Don
Ralph of Notre Dame. All of his
victories have been in straight
sets.
Veteran Bob Sassone is still un-
defeated in mat'ch play this sea-
son. He has taken seven consecu-
tive singles victories in the num-
ber three position. Sassone has
yet to lose a set in singles play
this spring.
Duo Undefeated
Also undefeated for the Wolver-
ines is the doubles team of Frank
Fulton and John Wiley. This duo
has been victorious in eight
matches.
Toughest opponents for the
Wolverines appear to be defend-
ing champion Iowa and last year's
runner-up, Illinois. "M" has al-
ready beaten the Illini, 6-3, but
have not met the Hawkeyes in
season play.
Michigan, as predicted by the
experts, should be headed for the
Conference crown.
