Lady Luck cast a black shadow
over Michigan's varsity teams this
season, and the baseball squad
was no exception. For the ump-

a chance to win it all, but they

Ohio State nosed out Michigan,

to retain the Big Ten title.
It was a triumphant finish for
the Buckeyes as they played under
considerable pressure to sweep a
doubleheader from Iowa at Iowa

The game between cross state h
rivals, Michigan and Michigan :
State, was a thriller to behold. Al-
though Michigan jumped off to a
commanding lead of 5-0 by the
end of the third, Michigan State
wasted little time as they got
three right back on Tom Ellis'
homer in the fourth that carried
over the left field fence.

Every time something takes place or takes off
from Cape Kennedy, we hear about it from
Howard Benedict. And so do you.
Benedict is the chief aerospace writer for
The Associated Press, and one of the chief
reasons whyour reports of the space program,
from the first Alan Shepard flight in the Free-

dom 7 to the latest space feat; have been so
complete and so authoritative.
In seven years, Benedict has witnessed
more than 1200 countdowns and spent count-
less hours with every expert in the space pro-
gram. He's as much up on the subject as
anyone can be who hasn't been up in space.

Howard Benedict, of course, is just one of
the many skilled AP reporters, writers, re-
searchers. and photographers covering the
field. There are dozens of them, and they're
all there just to make sure that we get all the
news from space. Just so we can get it all to
the earth people, our readers.

Everything that's going on, goes into our newspaper. That' why you get so much out of it.
