ble in Sig Chi's four run third
ing rally and a round-tripper
he seventh. Meanwhile Lance,
pitcher, allowed only one ball
e hit out of the infield and only

one runner, Mike Schiff who
walked, reached base during the
first four inings.
Also starring in the batter's box
were first baseman John McGuire,
wh had four hits and scored four
runs, for the victo'rs and Art Fried-
man of the losers, who had a home
run and a double.

and an error. They took command
wi'th four runs in the third on a
walk, an error, a single by Tim
Heinle and Lance's double.
The Sammies broke into the
scoring column in the fifth inning
as Lance served up gopher balls
to Mark Owen and Friedman, both
with the bases bare. In the sixth
they tallied two more as Mike
Schiff sandwiched a triple between
a walk and an error.
Phi Sigma Delta captured their
second straight fraternity "B"
softball crown by crushing Theta
Xi 18-4 last night.
Theta Xi was in contention un-
til the third inning when the Phi
Sigs turned the game into a rout.
Fine defensive play which key-
noted the winners all season was
again displayed.
Power was supplied by Stan Nos-
kin, George Fink and Nat Fried-
man, who all hit for the circuit.

By BUZ STEINBERG v
Wayne Peacock, a junior from
Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, was elect-
ed captain of the 1960 tennis team
yesterday.
The new Wolverine captain
played sixth man on both last
year's and this year's squad. He
also was the Big Ten champion
in number six singles for both
years.
Peacock has stretched out a
fourteen game winning streak at
this position, not having lost yet.
In doubles for the two seasons, he
has only been on the losing end
three times. This season, paired
with senior Larry Zaitzeff, Pea-
cock again won recognition when
the duo took the number two
doubles at the Big Ten playoffs.
The lanky junior will be on
Michigan's representation to the

NCAA playoffs at Northwestern;
in mid-June.
Peacock, whose casual style has
played an important part in his
success, should find added weight
on his shoulders in the forthcom-
ing year.
He is replacing a fine leader,
Jon Erickson, and will have to
work hard to maintain the gradu-
ating senior's standards.'
Also, by replacing Erickson, Pea-
cock should find himself with an-
other burden. Coach Bill Murphy
is planning a. European tour in
the fall, and this would leave Pea-
cock with added responsibilities in
guiding his subordinates.
After his nomination to the cap-
tainship, Peacock proudly said,
"Really this is quite a big thing,
and I hope to live up to all that
is expected of me."

HE'S SAFE-Bernie Fick dives head first back into first base in
the second inning of yesterday's varsity-frosh baseball game.
Varsity first baseman Bill Roman takes the throw. The frosh won
the game 7-6.

'M' SENIORS MUST CHOOSE:
Careers Take Precedence for Athletes

By DAVE ANDREWS
The Michigan freshmen base-
ball team rallied for two runs in
each of the last two innings and
upset the Varsity, 7-6, in the an-
nual game between the two squads
played at Ferry Field yesterday.-
Trailing by a 6-3 count going
into the eighth, the frosh came
to life after Joe Merullo led off the
frame by popping up to short.
Singles by Dick Delamielleure and
Don Kerr sandwiched around a
wild pitch produced one fun, then
Bernard Fick lined a hit to right
to drive in the second tally.
As they came to bat in the ninth
the freshmen still were behind by
a slim 6-5 score, but that was
quickly taken care of as Doug
Scott and Dick Clark drew walks
and Merullo singled to center.
Marcereau Brought In
Varsity Coach Don Lund then
brought in Bob Marcereau to pitch
to Delemielleure and the south-
paw promptly loaded the bases by
hitting the batter. Kerr then lifted
a sacrifice fly to right, driving in
the winning run.
The frosh jumped into a quick
1-0 lead when Delamielleure blast-
ed a tremendous home run into
the tennis courts in the second in-
ning. The blast coming off of
Varsity starter Joe Brefeld car-
ried about 400 feet.
The Varsity came right back in
their half of the second to knot
the count, when Jim Dickey, who
had walked, scored as a freshmen
double play attempt was broken
up by John Halstead.
Score Five
Then after the yearlings had
picked up single runs in the fifth
and sixth the Varsity again came

back and scored five times in their
half of the sixth.
They bombed freshman right-
hander Larry Demrick,' who had
coasted through the fourth and
fifth without any trouble, for three
clutch hits. These along with three
walks, an error, and a wild pitch
netted what were to be their last
runs of the afternoon.
Right - handers Joe Robinson
and Paul Osterback then com-

bined their talents to blank the
regulars in the last three innings
without a hit,
This afternoon the Varsity will
attempt to get back on the winning
track as they travel to Ypsilanti to
face Eastern Michigan. They have
already beaten the Hurons twice
this year by 12-0 and 4-1 scores
and today they will be trying for
a sweep of the season series.

"At Michigan, athletes are stu-

player and coach, at a recent resi-

exceptions these men have geared
their immediate futures to either'
future schooling or to their life
careers and have relegated ath-
letics to a secondary role.
M. C. Burton, last year's leading
scorer and rebounder in the Big
Ten, is a typical example. .Al-
though he has played a few pro-
fessional exhibitions with the Ha-
waiian 50th Staters against the
touring Harlem Globetrotters, his
immediate future plans call for a
continuation of school.
Accepted
Burton has been accepted by
the Michigan Medical School and
expects to begin studies in the fall.
Although he has been drafted
by the Detroit Pistons of the NBA,
he will settle for only as much
basketball as he can work into
his academic schedule.
The lanky forward plans to play
semi-pro and indicates that he
will be playing for either the
Grand Rapids Sputniks or the
Ypsilanti Thorne Tire Team.
The Grand Rapids aggregation
is a team styled after the Globe
Trotters, but plays only in the
Midwest.
Burton is now trying to find out
which schedule would let him play
the most on his weekends. "But
school comes first," says the form-
er Wolverine cager.
Most Valuable
John Hutton, voted the hockey
team's most valuable player last
season, is debating whether to
continue in school and work for
his masters in geology or go to
work in western Canada. Said
Hutton, "If I play any more
hockey, it will probably be in the
west, or wherever my work takes
me."

Gordie Morrow, center for Oos-
terbaan's last Wolverine football
team, has been drafted by the Los
Angeles Rams. He hopes to be
able to try some pro ball, but it
would depend on his employer.
"I'd hate to turn down a job and
security, so I'll have to see what
my boss would say."
Teammate Bob Ptacek, who set
a Big Ten passing record of 25
completions in last fall's Ohio
State game, has succumbed to the
lure of play-for-pay. However,
even his playing for the Cleveland
Browns (with a break for the col-
lege All-Star game), will be just
another step in his career in
coaching.
