Illinois' baseball team scored an
unearned run in the first inning
yesterday and went on to edge
Michigan 1-0 in the Big Ten
A sparse crowd at Ferry Field
watched both Illini hurler Tom
Fletcher and Wolverine mounds-
man Fritz Fisher, both southpaws,
turn in superb performances.
Fisher limited the Illini to just
four hits and thre walks, while
Fletcher yielded six safeties and
five passes.
Illinois third baseman Carl
Peterson hit the first pitch of the
game between short and third to
set up the visitors' lone tally.
Wihle Fisher was striking out Tony
Eichelberger and Bud Felichio,
Peterson stole second and raced
to third on a passed ball by Michi-
gan catcher Joe Merullo.
Slice Grounder
Lloyd Flodin then sliced a twist-
ing grounder down the third base
line which Jim Newman mishan-
dled for one error and threw wildly
to first for a second. Peterson
scored on the play, Flodin making
it as far as second. But he died
there as Jerry Rozmus grounded
out to end the inning.
From then on, the pitchers were
in complete control. Both teams
occasionally put runners in scoring
position, but each time, the start-
ters were equal to the task.
The Wolverines launched their
best bid to enter the scoring col-
Major League

umn in the fourth, when with one
out, Ron Tate singled sharply
through the box. After Jim Steck-
ley fanned, Dennis Spalla drove
the ball through the same spot
where Tate hit his, and there were
runners on first and third. Merullo
then gave Fletcher his biggest
scare of the afternoon when he
sent left fielder Rozmus back to
the 340-ft. mark to haul down a
long foul fly.
Two Base Runners
The only other frame in which
Michigan managed to put two
runners on was the sitxh when
Dick Honig's single and Steckley's
walk left men on first and second
with two out. But Fletcher was
equal to the task again, and forced
Spalla to loft any easy fly to left.
The Illini launched what almost
was a productive inning in the
fifth when first baseman Jerry
Renner grounded a single into
center field with one gone. After
he stole second, John Matt walked,
and both advanced a base on Flet-
cher's grounder to second. With
Peterson at the plate, Fisher took
a full windup and, taking off with
the pitch, Renner dashed for home.

He was out on the closest play of
the game, which prompted a few
minutes of heated argument from
Renner, Peterson, and Illinois
Coach Lee Eilbracht.
Flodin notched the only extra-
base hit of the contest in the
nal round when he lined a ground
rule double which cleared Spalla's
head and bounced over the fence.
But Fisher, undaunted, proceeded
to strike out the side.
This was an especially heart-
breaking loss for Fisher, since he
was vastly improved from his
spring showing. He reduced his
earned run average from 5.65 to
4.02, and racked up 10 strikeouts
to swell his season's total to 38 in
four games. However, the setback
left his won-lost record at 0-4,
which is twice as many games as
he dropped all of last year.
The defeat, coming in Michi-
gan's first conference bout, lowered
the Wolverines' season record to
5-7. Illinois, a prime contender for
the Big Ten championship cur-
rently held by the losers, elevated
its won-lost mark to 11-2. Yester-
day's game was the only one slated
between the two teams for the
1962 season.

In Columbus Meet

The Michigan golf team will dis-
play its wares today at Columbus
in its first northern meet of the
The team will play 36 holes on
Ohio State's spacious Scarlet
course against six other teams:
Ohio State, Purdue, Indiana, Ken-
tucky, Ohio University, Notre
Dame and Southern Illinois.
The meet will be Michigan's
first competition of the season as
well as its first Northern meet. In
the southern trip matches with
Duke and the Hope Valley Coun-
try Club of Pinehurst, N. C. were
cancelled because of rain.
New Scoring Method
Under the change in the con-
ference rules from last year, the
matches will be scored on a three
point medal play Nassau basis.
(A point for the lowest score for
the first nine, a point for the low-
est score on the second nine, and
a point for the lowest score for
the round.)

Last season all duel meets were
scored on a total stroke basis as an
experimental innovation.
Another new Big Ten golf rule
is being initiated for the Con-
ference Meet. Previously a team
counted the low five scores of its
six man team. This year the teams
will count the low five scores for
each round.
Youngsters Compete
Michigan will send a relatively
young team into today's meet.
There is only one senior, Captain
Bill Newcomb, in the Michigan
line-up. Newcomb will go as Mich-
igan's number one man. Junior
letterman Chuck Newton will play
number two man.
Tom Pendlebury, a junior of
hockey fame, will go as Michigan's
number three man. Gary Mouw,
a sophomore, will be number four
man and another soph, Dave
Cameron, will play at number five.
Bill Hallack will be Michigan's
number six man.

'M' Cindermen Out To Continue
Winning Ways in Ohio Relays

Special To The Daily
COLUMBUS-Today's Ohio Re-
lays are, by precedent one of those
affairs always dominated by one
team-in this case a track meet
that belongs to Michigan.
Every year the Wolverines seem
to walk off with the lion's share
of the victories, but it's become so
much of a tradition that some-
times they're overlooked.
Like last year, for instance.
Michigan was the defending cham-
pion in five of the six university
relays and proceeded to win four
again and place third in the fifth
Then the team scratched from
the last event, the mile relay, and
went home early because rain had
put the meet an hour behind
Nobody Loves Them
So the Wolverines had to be
content with four relay wins plus
a first 'in the shot put from Ray
And what happened to the As-
sociated Press coverage of the
meet? It seems that nearly all the
papers in the country the next
day ran stories about a college
called Central State, located in
Wilberforce, Ohio, making itself
a threat to be reckoned with by
the nation's track powers.
The Staters had won two hurdle
races with a fellow named Bill
Washington and then took the
mile relay.
Nobody mentioned that Michi-
gan's two hurdlers, Dick Cephas
and Ben McRae, might have had
something to say about Washing-
ton's two victories, or that Michi-
gan had left before the relay.
Track coach Don Canham gave
+he Staterscrdit for having a

This year McRae may still have
something to say about who wins
the 120-yd. high hurdles. Last year
he ran on both the 440 and 880
relays, but not the hurdles.
Today he's not running any-
thing but the 440 relay wnd the
hurdles unless the weather is un-
expectedly warm.
And he's going to get good
competition in the hurdles, too.
Willie May, ex-Indiana Big Aen
champion and Olympic silver med-
laist, is the biggest challenge, but
Michigan State sophomore Her-
man Johnson, who defeated Mc-
Rae twice indoors early in the
season, is also to run.
Only Two Relays
Canham expects to win maybe
only the two relays anchored by
Ergas Leps, but says the Wolver-
ines may do well in some of the
individual events.
In the pole vault, Michigan is
entering Rod Denhart, Steve Over-
ton and sophomores George Wade
and Ed Hinkson. Denhart cleared
14'9" this month, and there could
be a vault of 15' in the offing.
Dave Raimey and Doug ° Niles
will board jump for Michigan.

This could be a test to see if
Raimey is for real, because Can-
ham says Olympic champion
Ralph Boston may be entered.
Raimey defeated Boston indoors
when the Tennessee State A&I
star failed to hit 24' and the
Wolverine football halfback will
be trying to go two for two.
Two Jumpers Entered
High jumpers Steve Williams
and Al Ammerman are both jump-
ing better than they were before
the Big Ten meet indoors, when
Ammerman took second and Wil-
liams tied for third. Williams also
won it outdoors two years ago.
Sophomores Roger Schmitt and
Ernie Soudek are entering the shot
put and discus throw as Michi-
gan's top men there.
The Wolverines have enter-d
only three flat races. Jim Neahu-
san and Chris Murray are running
the mile, along with freshmen
Rick Cunningham and Angus
MacDonald; Dorr Casto and Dave
Hayes are in the 880, along with
freshmen Dan Hughes and Des
Ryan; and Fred Langille and Ole
Torgerson are going the seldom-
run three-mile.

SEATTLE SYMBOL-Century "21" Space Needle soars some six hundred feet with a torch up on top.
Revolving restaurant and sight seeing stand show off Seattle, Puget Sound, a couple of mountain
ranges, and the monorail trail, which carries the four car elevated train facilitating transportation
travels from Downtown Seattle to the Fair.



TECHNICAL TEACHING-The "Polyatomic Molecule" exhibit
with a layman's clarification is typical of the many displays which
explain complex scientific achievements to the public.
