Stottlemyre 's






Northrup's double the only hit.

Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
DETROIT F For the second
straight day in a row the New
York Yankees made Tiger fans
forget about last year's heroics
and remember the Bronx Bomb-

The only two other marks on
Stottlemyre's record were a couple
of miscues by his infield. Second-
baseman Horace Clarke bobbled a
routine grounder in the seventhj
and third-sacker Bobby/ Murcer
fell asleep on a similar play with
two outs in the ninth.'
All in all, Stottlemyre was un-
beatable. He only struck out
three, but he-didn't walk any body.
On the other hand, Tiger starter,
finisher, and ignominious loser



Dodgers seek Wis
Davidson hires Brown
By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in
re-acquiring Maury Wills, their former captain and record base-
stealing shortstop, from the Montreal Expos, a source close to the
club said yesterday.
Wills, who did the "impossible" in stealing 104.bases in 1962, fell
into disfavor with President Walter O'Malley when he left the team-
without permission during a tour of Japan in 1966.
Soon after that incident Wills was traded to Pittsburgh for Bob
Bailey and Gene Michael.
DAVIDSON, N.C. - Davidson College's search for a new basket-
ball head coach ended Friday when Larry Brown, former Uni-
versity of North Carolina star w s named to the post.
Brown served two years as in assistant coach -at UNC before
becoming a professional cager in 1967. He is now playing for the Oak-
land Oaks of the American Basketball Association and will not assume
his duties at Davidson until late this month or early May. It will be
his first head coaching position.

With the seemingly endless
baseball season dragging into its
second long week, Michigan's new
f head football coach, Bo Schem-
bechler, provided weary fans with
an alternative as hey unveiled the
1969 Wolverine gridders in a full
scale scrimmage at Michigan. Sta-
dium yesterday afternoon.
In the sporting world's biggest
shock since Joe Namath shaved
his face, the Blue team first-string
offense scored five touchdowns off
of the White team's second string
defense,' while the White first'
string defense held the Blue sec-
ond string offense scoreless.
To nobody's }surprise junior
quarterback Don Moorhead led an
offense of, all lettermen which
moved almost at will against a
green second string defense. Join-
ing Moorhead in the backfield
were last year's starters fullback
Garvie Craw, wingback Paul Star-
oba, and John Gabler moved over

to tailback from wingback where
he played last season.
Behind the' veteran line of Dan
Dierdorf, Jack Harpering, Bob
Baumgartner, Frank Titas and
converted center Tim Killian,
Moorhead and Craw blew through
gaping holes in the White squad
line to set up the five scores.
Moorhead's aerial game was also
sharp as, he frequently found
Staroba and ace tight end Jim
Mandich in the open and hit each
for a touchdown.
Schembechler admits that he
emphasizes defense on his football
team and it was quite apparent
as his veteran defense chewed up
the second string offense.
In spite of the powerful show-
ing of his veteran defense Schem-
bechler refused to hint that he
might be at all optimistic as he
pointed out, "on the first drive
they (the defense) weren't sharp
at all."

In the first game a one-out last

7-6 win, while the one-hit pitching
of Jim Burton a n d John Ritter
was all the Wolverines needed to
top the frosh in the second con-

The doubleheader resembled the
rugby tournament occurring out

Aside from their sloppy play,
