'M' Nine To Test Pitchers at U. of D.


"We really need these four
games this week to get a good look
at tle pitchers," Michigan base-
ball coach Moby Benedict said yes-
The game today at the Univer-
sity of Detroit is the first of five
games in the next nine days that
the Wolverines, now 5-9, will play,
tuning up for the Big Ten opener
at Wisconsin a week from Friday.
"Clyde (Barnhart) did a real
nice job for us Saturday," Bene-
dict said, referring to the seven-
inning shutout pitched against

Central Michigan by the junior
"He'll probably throw against
Western Michigan Wednesday, and
Carl Welch will go against De-
troit," he said. /-/'
"We'll probably see (Arnie) Jent
for Detroit," the coach said. Jent,
a 6'4" righthander from the De-
troit sandlots is the backbone of
the Titans' staff.
Welch, a righthanded sopho-
more, was bombed both times he
started on the Arizona spring va-i
cation trip. Currently he supports-
an unenviable 9.67 earned run
No Changes
Benedict says that he won't be
making any changes in the lineup
that brought a split with Central
Michigan Saturday.
The infield will be sophomore
Chan Simonds at first, senior Tom
(Butch) Laslo at second, captain
Dave Campbell at short, and jun-
ior George Skaff at third.
In the outfield, Earl Meyers,
Ron Tate and Bob Gilholley will
be in left, center and right, while
sophomore catcher Ted Sizemore
will be behind the plate.

Saturday's first game with Cen-
tral was one that Benedict said
could have been completely dif-
ferent from the 6-1 loss it was, had
just a few breaks gone the other
"We hit a lot of balls real well
that were right at them," he
said. "And by the same token, if
you added up about four of their
hits, they wouldn't go past the
shortstop," he added.
Starts at 3:30
The game today at the U-D
Field will start at 3:30, as will
the game at Kalamazoo tomorrow.
Saturday, the Eastern Michigan
Hurons will be at Ferry Field at
1 p.m. for a doubleheader.
Next week, the Wolverines will
face Notre Dame at South Bend
on Thursday, then travel to Madi-
son for the Big Ten opener on
Friday, and to Evanston for the
first conference doubleheader
against Northwestern.
Ron Tate, the Wolverines' cen-
terfielder, remains the team's
leading hitter as his two-for-six
performance Saturday brought his
average to .326 over the 11 games
he has played.

Palmer Eyes
Grand Slam

AUGUSTA, Ga. () - Arnold
Palmer, given what he calls a new
life in golf, again has fixed his
sights on the elusive professional
grand slam now that he has won
the first of the four big ones, the
"If I win the U.S. Open, I'll
definitely play in the British Open
at St. Andrews," the millionaire
par wrecker from Latrobe, Pa.,
said yesterday. "If I don't win our
Open, y plans ae a bit indef-
2 finite.
"This much is true. I still have
my heart set on winning that
grand slam. I'll keep trying as
long as I can swing a club."
The professional slam consists
of the Masters,- the U.S. and Brit-
ish Opens and the American PGA.
To win these four in a single
year would be a feat, Palmer in-
sists, comparab'le and probably
superior to Bob Jones' grand slam
-the U.S. and British Opens and
the U.S. and British amateur-in
Little Time to Adjust
"The U.S. Open, British and
PGA will be played in the space
of a little more than a month,"
Palmer said. 'l be going from
the big American ball to the small
British ball and back to the Ame-
rican ball with only a week to get
adjusted. It's tough."
The American Open is sched-
uled June 18-20 at the Congres-
s,onal Club in Washington, D.C.
The' British Open will be played
at historic St. Andrews July 8-10
and the PGA at Columbus, Ohio,
July 16-19.
Palmer, who led every round in
scoring a six-stroke victory here
Sunday for the fourth Masters
championship, said he would skip
the next two tour tournaments at
Houston and San Antonio and
make his next competitive ap-
pearance at the Tournament of
Champions at Las Vegas May 1.
During $he next two weeks he
will rest, he said, and probably
play a couple of practice rounds
at Congressional. .
The closest he ever came to the
grand slam was in 1960 when he
won the Masters and U.S. Open
and missed out by a stroke in the
British Open .at St. Andrews. He
has never won the PGA.
The powerfully-built, 34-year-
old glamor boy of golf acknowl-
edged that his Masters triumph,
coming on the heels of a six-
month victory drouth, gave him
a "new life."
"I feel like going out and play-
ing again," he added. He said he
was beginning to be bugged by
the fact that he hadn't won a
maor title since the British Open
in 1962 and hadn't scored a tour
victory since last October. He was
stung by hints he was through.
"When I teed up the ball the
first day here, there was a big
question mark going around in my
mind," he added. "I wondered-
as some people were saying -
whether I had really lost my
The 28th Masters answered that
question decisively. He shot 69,
68, 69, 70 for 276, two off Ben
Hogan's record, and finished six
shots ahead of Jack Nicklaus and
Dave Marr. He passed the half-
million dollar mark in career win-


Limited Outdoor Action Hurts Netmen


Coach Bill Murphy would have
gladly saved some Florida sun-
shine and brought it back to Ann
Arbor if he had known 'that the
weather was to be as adverse for
tennis as it has been lately.
Since the team's return from
"The Land of Sunshine" they have
only been able to work outside on
a few occasions. Watching his
team work out on the wood of the
Intramural Gym, Murphy points
out dismally, "Our clay courts
aren't even ready for play yet.
They take a lot of sunshine, and
we haven't had it."
"We had a tournament indoors
this winter, and this combined
with the team's performance
against Miami and Princeton are
all we have to go on," the veteran
coach explained. "As a result we
will probably start the same line-
up that we did against Miami this
weekend." Michigan opens its con-
ference season this Friday against
Wisconsin and Indiana.
The lineup that Murphy referred
to was Harry Fauquier, Karl Hed-
rick, John Fraser, Hal Lowe, Brian
Flood and Jim Swift.
Of these six, three are juniors,
Lowe, Fraser and Flood. Of the
ten .men seeking varsity births,
five are juniors. The other two
being George Russell and Bo Bar-
"We have a lot of juniors this
year," Murphy explained yester-
day, "and they should give the
team a lot of strength."
Fraser compiled a 5-2 mark in
conference play last season when
he played second 'singles in the
absence of captain Harry Fauquier.
He lost in the first round of the
tQurnament to Northwestern's Ken

Paulson, the eventual third singles
titlist. Fraser is presently in the
third spot, and has, according to
Murphy, "a lot of potential."
Lowe is presently holding down
the number four slot on the team.
He lost only one match last year
in regular season dual meets, and
that was in the Northwestern
meet. He also teamed up with
Harry Fauquier to bring home the
second doubles championship.
"The Visor" is termed by Murphy
as "a real hard hitter."
In contrast to Lowe's hard hit-
ting, Murphy calls Flood "a good
retriever who is pretty steady."
Flood only lost one conference
meet last season. That defeat came
in the Big Ten finals when he lost
to Bill Rice of Northwestern. Flood
is the present possessor of the
number five spot on the varsity
ladder. Murphy points out that
"He has improved an awful lot."
Also competing for spots are

juniors Bo Barker, who finished
the season last year with a 5-2
mark at fifth singles. He filled this
gap when Fauquier played in the
Pan-American games. After the
Canadian's return, Flood alter-
nated with senior Ron Linclau in
the sixth spot. In addition, George
Russell, who has little Big Ten ex-
perience, is in competition for a
varsity slot.
Murphy calls this year's team,
"a little stronger than last year's.
We have better balance all the
way down the line."
Murphy's men are hoping
against hope that the weather will
change, and that spring will comp
for good to Ann Arbor, so that
they can get outside in prepara-
tion for this Saturday's conference
quadrangular meet at Columbus,
with Ohio State, Indiana and Wis-

The West Coast games will be

basis by Subscription Television
"We've been talking about it
plenty," Kubek said. "Not only
this club, but everywhere. The
whole subject has been coming to
a boil all spring long.
"The kind of thinking we've
been doing has not been irrespon-
sible. The facts are simply this-
we ought to get a piece of the
extra money from pay TV since
we are the performers who make
the show go.
"Now is there anything more
fair than that?"
Kubek said the players want "a
fair share of any extra money
which may result from pay TV."

the institution of the Presidency in the middle

about its size, its means of learning and do-

but,' Mr. Sorensen thinks, 'they all want too
many conferences'), its powers, and its limita-

not as great as his responsibility'). We have

Mr. Sorensen explains just what kind of hard
job." -The New Yorker
