Visions of paradise are now oc-
cupying Don Lund's thoughts.
Paradise in the form of Ari-
zona's sunny weather, that is. For
Michigan's head baseball coach
will soon be leading his charges
southward and westward to what
many call the most ideal baseball
This Friday, when most stu-
dents will be heading homeward
for spring vacations, the defend-
ing Big Ten champions will fly to
Phoenix, Ariz., and set up camp
for an eight day stay. During this
time, they'll play 11 games, seven
with Arizona State, three with
Arizona at Tuscon, and one with
Grand Canyon College.
Nothing Better
According to Coach Lund there's
nothing better for the players
than the annual spring jaunt. "We
haven't played any other schools
yet," he says, "but by the time
we come back, we'll have sufficient
momentum to swing right into
the conference schedule.-The big-
gest advantage to playing in Ari-
zona, as opposed to Florida, or
anywhere else, is that it virtually
never rains in the Southwest.
There's never a cloud in the sky
and the almost complete' lack of
humidity prevents the players
from tiring out easily."
Nats Give Nod
To Kennedy To
Start Opener
House made it official yesterday,
President John F. Kennedy will
throw out the first ball of the 1962
baseball season here next Monday.
Kennedy will perform just be-
fore the Washington Senators play
the Detroit Tigers. The game not
only opens the baseball season hut
is the first Major League game to
be played in the big new District
of Columbia Stadium.
"The President is going to go to
the ball game," White House Press
Secretary Pierre Salinger said. "He
will go and throw out the opening
Kennedy, a right-hander, made
his debut as an opening day pitch-
er last season in old Griffith Sta-
dium and -demonstrated more
pitching power than previous pres-
idents had shown. His toss sailed
over the heads of most of the
players clustered in front of his

Lund notes that when the Wol-
evrines play their first contest
with Arizona, their opponents will
be in their 25th game. "But I
doubt that this 4vill put us at a
disadvantage," he declared. "We've
been practicing long enough to
be able to put up a good showing
against the Arizona schools. This
is not to disparage them, of course,
as they always come up with
some very good ball clubs."
6-3 Record
Last year, the squad compiled an
admirable 6-3 record in the cactus
country. "As always, our primary
aim is to win ball games," said
the Michigan mentor, "but we
never object to receiving other
fringe benefits on the spring trip,
such as the unexpected improve-
ment of one of our players. Last
year it was very encouraging to
see how well we could handle our-
selves before the Big Ten season
began." ,
Lund no longer subscribes to the
major leagues' philosophy of ro-
tating pitchers every three innings
in the early exhibition games.
"After all," he remarked, "all the
pitchers are in shape and there's
no reason why they shouldn't go
as long as they can. The heat
won't be a problem due to the
dryness of the air."
Lund plans to go with both new-
comers and veterans in order to
-get an all-around view of his
pitching staff.
Try New Positions
In formulating his starting
lineup, he will be interested to
see how Jim Newman does at
third base and how Joe Merullo
handles himself behind the plate.
Both men are returning to their
natural position. The coach must
also evaluate the performances
of Dick Campbell and Harvey;
Chapman at first, to decide the
status of the post left vacant by
Barry Marshall.
Lund's basic philosophy for
building a good baseball team is;
play, play, play. For this reason,
he schedules as many games as
possible outside of the prescribed1
Big Ten '15-game card. The con-
ference allows each team nine1
out-of-conference dates outside of
its spring trip, any one of which1

TUSCON (IP) -The Cleveland<
Indians got word yesterday thatf
Jim (Mudcat) Grant, who has
been in the Army since last fall,3
will be available for pitching duty

Cleveland hurler.
A private at Fort Belvoir, Va.,
Grant has kept in shape working1
out there and pitching for hisi
company team.F

may be a doubleheader. Taking
full advantage of this, Lund has
arranged to play 11 games on the
nine dates, swelling the total for
the season to 37 contests.
Have Fun
Above all, Lund wants his team
to go to Arizona to relax and
have fun. "The people are always
very cordial to us down there," he
reminisced, "and the men always
enjoy themselves, both on the
field and off. And they come back
to Ann Arbor in the right frame
of mind to play top-flight baseball
for the entire season."

DETROIT - The Los Angeles
Lakers blew a 24-point lead in the
final period last night before beat-
ing down the Detroit Pistons'
hopes of a. fantastic comeback in
a 123-117 victory that advanced
the Lakers to the National Basket-
ball Association Championship
The Lakers won the best-of-
seven Western Division finals 4'-2
after taking the first three games
and then losing the next two to
the resurgent Pistons.
The Pistons, who treasured
thoughts of a comeback unprecen-
dented in NBA playoffs, erased
the Lakers' 24-point lead with a
brilliant rally that tied the score
117-117 with 1:21 left.
But Pfc. Elgin Baylor, playing
on a one-day pass from the Army,
put the Lakers ahead to stay with
a jump shot 14 seconds later. Then
Jerry West added two free throws
and Wayne Yates sank an insur-
ance basket.
Baylor and West vaulted the
Lakers to the league champion-
ship series for the first time since
they moved to Los Angeles two
seasons ago by scoring 38 points
apiece. Ray Scott topped the Pis-
tons with 22 points.

phia Warriors, getting hot shoot-
ing from rookie Tom Meschery
and veteran Paul Arizin, last night

defeated Boston 109-99 to even
their best-of-seven NBA Eastern
Division Playoff at three games
Wilt Chamberlain finished high
for the Warriors with 32 points,
but he was completely overshadow-
ed in the first half by Meschery
and Arizin. Their shooting put the
Warriors out in front early in the
Meschery, a 22-year-old 6'6"
forward from St. Mary's (Calif.),
College finished with 27 points,
23 of them coming in the first
half. Arizin finished with 28.
With Arizin, then Meschery hit-
ting from all over the court, the
Warriors spurted to a 34-22 lead
at the end of the first quarter
and hiked it to 47-31 midway
through the second quarter. At
one point during one stretch, Mes-
chery, hitting from around the
foul circle on one-handed jump
shots made eight straight field
goals. He finished the half with
11 for 16.
Chamberlain, after making only
one of his first 10 field goal at-,
tempts got hot in the final three
minutes . of the first half and,
dropped in four field goals to
give the Warriors a 62-52 lead at

CHICAGO-A pair of third per-1
iod goals by Ab McDonald and the
brilliant stickwork of center Stan

Mikita gave the Chicago Black
Hawks a 5-3 victory over Mon-
treal last night and evened their
best-of-seven Stanley Cup semi-
final series at two games each.
Mikita assisted the first four
goals scored by the Hawks and
boosted his point production to
nine, tops for the series.
McDonald broke a 2-2 tie with a
goal at 4:39 of the final period
and Red Hay made it 4-2 at
5:16 while Jean-Guy Talbot was
serving a penalty.
Gilles Tremblay put the Cana-
diens within reach with a goal at
8:46 but McDonald iced it with
another goal at 12:46.
NEW YORK-Rookie Rod Gil-
bert, called up from a farm team
only three days ago, scored two
goals and set up another last night
as the New York Rangers beat
Toronto, 4-2, and evened their
best-of-seven semifinal Stanley
Cup playoff series 2-2.
The baby-faced Gilbert, called
up from the Rangers' Kitchner,
Ont., farm to fill injury vacancies,
scored twice in the first period
and assisted on Dave Balon's even-
tual winner in the third.
Bob Pulford, who had played
two outstanding games for the
Leafs, closed the gap to 2-1 in
the third before Balon scored. Bob
Nevin closed the Toronto deficit to
one goal late in the third period.
