Winning two of three games in
last week's action the Michigan
baseball team takes on Central'
Michigan today and the Irish of
Notre Dame tomorrow in home
outings.
According to Coach Don Lund,
Central Michigan always comes up
with good material to produce a
capable baseball squad. The Mich-
igan school this year is once
again a first rate team with fairly
steady pitching as its mainstay.
Last year the Wolverines won
a doubleheader from the Chip-
pewas and will be out to lenghten
the streak in today's contest be-
ginning at 3:30.
Notre Dame Good
Notre Dame has another good
team with good balance. One of
Notre Dame's leading hitters is
Michey Walker, who almost signed'
a Michigan tender and was a
teammate of Michigan's Dick Hon-
ig and Jim Steckley while in high
school.
In Friday's Big Ten opener
against Illinois Michigan pitcher
Fritz Fisher lost his second'
straight 1-0 game when the Illini
brought a run home in the ninth
inning on an error by Wolverine
third sacker Jim Newman.
Behind a 26 hit attack the Wol-
verines battered Purdue 12-4 and
8-2 in Saturday's double header
to atone for the previous day's
one run defeat and remain a game
behind conference leading Illinois
by emerging with a 2-1 league
mark.
Sophomore Harvey Chapman
who is equally at home at first
or third earned a sure starting
position with his hitting in the
Boilermaker series. Chapman bang-
ed out three hits in four trips

in the first game and batted in two
runs to aid the Wolverine rout.
Because of his performance in
the first game Chapman was mov-
ed up to the cleanup position in
the second game and collected
another hit in three trips. The
day's effort gave the hustling
sophomore the team batting lead-
ership with a .400 average on 10
hits in 25 times at bat in Michi-
gan's 14 game season.
Shortstop Dick Honig connected
for six hits in the- doubleheader,
with two triples and a double

among them in eight times at
bat. In the. nightcap he batted
in four . runs to accountfor half
his team's total.
"We still plan to use a 22 man
squad. When a man is hot we'll
use him. The hitters did a fine
job in providing 26 hits for our
pitchers which is a big help in
building team confidence," com-
mented Lund.
The Michigan coach was es-
pecially pleased with the perform-
ance of his pitchers who seem to
have regained the control they

lost during the Arizona tour.
"They're starting to get the
ball overethe plate regularly. As
long as our pitcher give the batters
a chance to hit the ball our de-
fense has the chance to make a
play.
Wayne Slusher who has one
victory in the current campaign
will start today against the Chip-
pewas. Tomorrow against the
Irish, Fisher will pitch the first
four innings while veteran Franz
Neubrecht will hurl in the re-
maining five.

FEDERATION TO FORE:
Carham Vows AAU Doom

_ ____

By DAVE GOOD
"We'll never hold another AAU
meet as long as I'm coach here,"
resolved the man who has spent
the better part of the past year in
a bitter fight to overthrow the
near-dictatorial powers of the
Amateur Athletic Union.'
"I'll quit first, and I don't think
I'll have to do that as long as
(Athletic Director) Fritz Crisler
is here," added Michigan track
coach Don Canham.
It was a story that Canham had
to tell enthusiastically, almost with
a fervor, about how the collegiate
track coaches' power struggle with
the AAU fizzled temporarily sev-
eral months ago, how dissent grew
even within the ranks of the AAU,
and finally how last Saturday's
Ohio Relays cemented the doom
of the AAU.
Giant Step
It was the first big outdoor open
meet run deliberately without the

sanction of the AAU, at the re-
quest of Canham and with the
agreement of all the coaches in-
volved.
"From now on, they'll all be
held like that," predicted Canham.
"We'll never hold another AAU
meet, no matter how it comes
out. We're ;just through with
them."
To prove his point, Canham dis-
closed that this Saturday's Michi-
gan Open will be held without
sanction.
"There's just no opposition ex-
cept the five AAU guys on their
executive committee. They're go-
ing to be overruled. They'll be
forced to join us by their member-
ship-in fact, I'm sure of it. We've
had lots of letters from AAU
committeemen backing us up,"
added Canham.
Foot in Mouth
"The biggest blow came from the
Eastern collegiate group. The AAU
figured they'd get their backing,
but after (AAU head Donald)
Hull talked to them for five min-
utes, they voted unanimously for
the federation. Hull wasn't very
impressive.
"I think every time the AAU
issues a statement, they do them-
selves harm, because they have
absolutely no ground to stand
on. There's nothing they can do..
They're going to end up with no-
body.
"They have no athletes, no fa-
cilities, no officials, no coaches
and no track meets without our
backing. They furnish nothing for
their meets except the sanction.
They're through unless they join
us, and we're about fed up with
them."
Ever since last September, Can-
ham and the rest of the college
coaches have been trying to or-
ganize a U. S. Track and Field
Federation which would give
equal rights to the AAU, NCAA,
high schools, armed forces and
clubs.
The feeling is nearly unanimous
among all the people connected
with the sport that the AAU is
Local Ruggers
Post Victory
A second half rally gave the
Michigan Rugby Club, formerly
known as the Ann Arbor Rugby
Club, its first victory of the spring
season Saturday at Sarnia, Ont.
Trailing 8-0 at the break, the
Michiganders roared from behind
to post a 16-8 win on trys by
John Appleford, Jim Canfield,
Jerry Meyer and Bill Harris. Two
conversions by John Niehuss gave
Michigan its other four points.
Trys are worth three points.
Before Saturday the local club
had lost four games--all on a
spring vacation swing through the
East.
Next Saturday Michigan travels
to Toronto to take on the Nomads.
The first home follows: a week
later.

incapable of doing an efficient
job. And it is significant that
federations are being organized in
basketball, swimming and gym-
nastics.
The only hitch came several
months ago when the organiza-
tional meeting didn't come off as
expected because the high schools
couldn't give their collective ap-
proval until a June 5 meeting.
This prevented a boycott of this
summer's national AAU meet.
Canham figures now that no-
thing can stop the federation from
organizing in time to boycott one
of the early-season indoor meets
in Boston.
Canham brushed off the AAU's
claims that the revolt could jeop-
ardize America's track future in
the Olympics. He pointed out that
the AAU can hardly blacklist ath-
letes who support the federation,
because that includes nearly every-
body.
* * *
Saturday's Ohio Relays also add-
ed to the Wolverines' injury list.
Dave Raimey pulled a leg muscle
about halfway through his 110 yds.
of the 440-yd. relay.
Canham will probably keep him1
home from this Saturday's Penn
Relays, but isn't sure yet about
the extent of Raimey's injury,
which prevented him from nom-
peting in the broad jump finals.
Pole vaulter Rod Denhart landed
hard on his back after his second
try at 15' and didn't do any
practice vaulting yesterday, al-
though he is expected to be ready
this Saturday.
Should Be Habit
"Actually, I hurt my thumb
more than my back," Denhart ex-
plained. "I think I sprained it."
Ironically enough, Denhart made
his best attempt at 15' after he
hurt his back. "I have no idea
what hit the bar. It fell after I
landed in the pit," he commented.
Denhart won at 14' 8V'", just
under Eeles Landstrom's varsity
record of 14'9 3/8".
High jumper Al Ammerman re-
injured the knee he has been
door season started and finished
having trouble with since the out-
out of the money at Ohio.
Meanwhile, Mac Hunter's leg is
still sore from a muscle pull suf-
fered in Florida, but he insists
he'll be ready tomsprint in time
for the Big Ten meet next montn.
Canham remarked, "We can win
the Big Ten meet if he can sprint,
but without him I just don't
know."
Sanders Wins
Tramp Crown
Though Michigan's Big Ten
Championship gymnastics squad
loses Captain Tom Osterland to
graduation this year, the Trampo-
line will not be unmanned next
year.
Last weekend Fred Sanders, a
Wolverine freshman, won the Na-
tional Junior AAU Championship
at New York.

By JIM BERGER
Last season an inexperienced
Michigan golf team went to Co-
lumbus for its first meet of the
year and won despite miserable
weathei' conditions.
This year the weather was bet-,
ter.
Like last year, the Michigan
team isinexperienced. The 1962
version did not win last Saturday
but came in fourth - two strokes
away from the winning team.
A sophomore, Dave Cameron
from Detroit, was the Michigan
medalist. He played number four
man. Another sophomore Gary
Mouw (number five man), also of
Detroit, fired a 36-hole total that
equaled Captain Bill Newcomb.
In Contention
What this all means is that
Michigan's golf team can consider
itself in contention for the Big Ten
Championship. No doubt the Wol-
verines still have many problems
to solve before the Conference
meet, but using last weekend's
meet as some measure of the
team's ability, there is no doubt
that the potential exists.
"The performances of Mouw
and Cameron are very encourag-
ing," said Coach Bert Katzenemy-
er, "I must say that I'm a bit dis-
appointed in (Chuck) Newton and
Newcomb, but I'm confident that
these boys will get better as the
season progresses.
"We still need a lot of work" he
went on, "and there are still many
more problems to iron out but the
team has showed a very definite
improvement."
One obvious problem facing
Michigan is its number six man.
Presently Katzenmeyer is experi-
menting at the number six slot, but
the Michigan coach is still looking.
As far as Cameron is concerned,
playing good spring golf is noth-
ing extraordinary for the sopho-
more. In his junior and senior
years in high school playing for
the Redford team, Cameron won
the Detroit City high school tour-
nament. His two scores were 72
and 73.
Good In Spring
"I generally play pretty good in
the spring," said Cameron. "I had
a good day last Saturday but I
expect to do a lot better."
Prep Cage Star
To Enroll Here
Basketball coach Dave Strack
made a very significant stride in
the recruiting season yesterday
when Oliver. Darden of Detroit
Western announced that he was
going to sign a tender and enroll
in Michigan next year.
Darden, a 6'6'" center was
named to the Michigan Class A,
all-state first team. He averaged
around 30 points a game and some
considered him the second-best
player in the state.

"My long irons are the best part
of my game ordinarily," he con-
tinued, "but last Saturday I hit
five greens with wood shots, and
that made me feel pretty good."
The Michigan team journeys to
Champaign this weekend to play
a quadrangular meet with Ohio
State, Purdue and Illinois. Illinois
will host the Conference meet this
season.
'M' Sailors
Win Meet
Michigan's Sailing Club battled
brisk winds to capture first place
in the Cary-Price Regatta during
the weekend-the fourth time in
the four-year existence of the
competition that the Wolverines
have taken the, honors.
The Maize and Blue sailors cop-
ped 115 points in the victory.
Wooster was runner-up with 106,
and Notre Dame followed with
80.
Strong winds that dunked ten
boats marked the meet of col-
legiate nautical crews. Norman
Rabe directed the Michigan 'A'
crew, Timmy Schnieder captained
the 'B'.
The regatta was held at Base-
line Lake, north of Ann Arbor.
