By BILL BULLARD
Michigan defeated Notre Dame
18-7 in a wild offensive battle yes-
terday at Ferry Field.
The Wolverines scored in every
inning except the first and last in
running up their 18-run total on
18 hits. Notre Dame had its big-
gest splurge in the sixth inning
wlen it knocked in six of its seven
Four home runs aided Michi-
gan's cause. Catcher Joe Merullo
hit his first home run in the sec-
ond inning to give Michigan a 1-0
lead. His next homer was a three-
run blast in the third inning. Jim
Steckley sent Harvey Chapman in
to score from first base on his
home run in the fourth and pitch-
er Fritz Neubrecht clouted his in
Neubrecht's home run was re-
venge of a sort after Notre Dame's
Jim Stouffer had driven his first
pitch in the top of the fifth over
the fence in left-centerfield.
Sat Out First Patt
Regular outfielders Dennis Spal-
la and Ron Tate, both lefthanded
batters, sat out the first part of
the game as Notre Dame started
with a righthanded pitcher. Spalla
and Tate were replaced by right-
handed Eddie Hood and Dick Post.
Coach Don Lund said, "We've got
the type of ball club where we
have to switch the players around.
All the guys have to be ready to
play at any time."
Michigan used 16 players in the
game including three pitchers.
Fritz Fisher started for the- Wol-
verines and was awarded the vic-
tory after shutting out the Irish
on three hits in four innings. He
only worked four innings because
Coach Lund plans to start him in
one of the two games against
Minnesota on Saturday..
Scored Off Neubrecht
All Notre Dame runs were
scored off Neubrecht. After Stouf-
fer's homer greeted him in the
fifth, he struck out two batters
and got another on an easy
grounder to end the inning. But
in the sixth inning, he faced seven
batters whom he was not able to
retire before he was relieved by
John Kerr. Four of the opponents
singled and three of them were
walked by Neubrecht as the first
six to face him scored runs.
Kerr subdued the Irish effec-
tively although not w i t h o u t
threatening situations. He was
helped by two timely double plays
but did much himself as he only
walked two and gave up three hits
in the four innings.
Scored Five Runs
After Merullo hit his home run
in the fifth, Michigan scored five
runs each in the third and fourth
innings. With two out in the third,
Dick Honig made it to second base
on a throwing error by the third
baseman. He stole third base and
scored on Steckley's single to cen-
ter. Chapman had walked after
Honig, went to third on Steckley's
single and scored along with Dick
Post on Merullo's second home
In the fourth inning, Honig
drove in a run with a double,
Chapman knocked in two runs
with a single, and Steckley scored
after Chapman on his home run.
Neubrecht hit his home run in
the fifth and Michigan finished
the scoring with two runs in the
sixth and four in the seventh.

Michigan's talent-laden tennis
crew hopefully served warning yes-
terday of things to come this
spring with a healthy 9-0 romp
over Ohio Wesleyan in the season
The Wolverine netmen dropped
only two sets while initiating the
spring schedule that will see Mich-
igan battling for its fourth con-
secutive Big Ten title.
Yesterday's clean sweep over the
Ohioans brightened Wolverine
hopes. "I'm really pleased with the
team's performance," commented
mentor Bill Murphy. "And Ohio
Wesleyan has a fairly good team."
But the visitors couldn't match
Ann Arbor's Big Ten depth. It
wasn't until the sixth-man singles
match that Ohio Wesleyan could
chalk up a set, 6-4, but Michigan's
Ron Linclau evened the score over
Chaz Moazed with a 6-3 tally in
the second set and took the victory
with a 6-4 win in the third. The
match was Linclau's first competi-
tion on the courts for the Wolver-
ines in scheduled intercollegiate
Into Winning Stride
Ray Senkowski, Michigan's man
on top and Big Ten champ last
year as a sophomore, got into win-
ning stride with a 6-2, 6-0 victory
over OWU's Bill Poist. Senkowski
broke Poist's service-game wins
with the score 3-2 in the first set-
and then handily smashed his way
for the victory.
Michigan's number two singles
position went to Harry Fauquier,
and in his first competition the

Glinka Again Top Candidate
By JERRY KALISH
In old Bavaria when the beer
tastes extra good, they lift their
steins and sing "eins, zwei . .
g'suffal" (tastes so good you drink
it up-one, two.)

Being pressed for his job by a
strong group of - candidates is
getting to be a yearly thing for
veteran quarterback Dave Glinka.
But it appears again that the
junior letterman will get the nod
from head football coach Bump
Elliott to start the season next
Take It Away
"They'll have to take the job
away frpm him," said Elliott. And
from past performance that may
be hard to do.
Two years ago as a freshman,
Glinka showed enough in spring
practice to take over the starting
assignment despite John Stamos,
who was considered the prime
contender, and highly regarded
Last spring, too, Glinka couldn't
be pushed out of the picture by
either Chandler or Frosty Eva-
shevski, though Evashevski was
pushing Glinka for the slot until
he was hurt right before the first
game. Glinka from then on was
brewed in the old Bavarian tradition.

never challenged, and he wound
up last season with a 48 per cent
This spring is no exception.
Elliott considers this the finest
group of quarterback prospects
since Glinka first won his starting
position, and the Michigan mentor
hopes "the competition will push
him and the other candidates."
Coach Newt Loken and Captain
Tom Osterland of the Michigan
gymnastics team have been
awarded recognition for their ef-
forts which led to the Wolverine's
recent Big Ten Championship.
Loken, whose 1962 champion-
ship team was his second title-
winner in as many years, was
named midwest "Coach of the
Year." The honor is given annually
by the National Association of

ington, chairman of the selection

athletics. While maintaining a B

titles on the trampoline while

Ranking high on Elliott's list
are of course letterman Chandler
and Evashevski who is recovered
from a knee operation last fall.
Since he did not appear in any
games, the Big Ten awarded him
an extra season of eligibility, and

Changed to Halfback
Tom Prichard, the other letter-
man signal caller, is being changed
to left halfback.
"Tom is a good runner, and we
think he can help us more at half-
back," Elliott explained. "We're
experimenting now in the spring,
and we know he can always be
With the quarterback question
"narrowed" to three veterans, El-
liott's problem is more pleasantly
complicated by the fine showing
of freshman Bob Timberlake, a
6'3", 210 pounder from Franklin,
"He looked good the first scrim-
mage we held last Saturday after-
noon," Elliott smiled, "but he lacks
experience which is to be expected
for a freshman."
Hard To Compare
With spring practice in the ear-
ly stages, Elliott finds "it hard
to compare the strengths and
weaknesses of each because we
haven't practiced much."
But if Glinka shows senior style,
Evashevski and Chandler prove
that they are fully recovered from
the injuries that sidelined them
previously, and Timberlake proves
that he is the best freshman quar-
terback in recent years, then El-
liot's Quarterback Club could be-
come a powerful organization.
And there's always the possibil-
ity of trading one to Michigan
State f or a line.

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's golf
team will leave for Champaign to-
day where it will meet highly-re-
garded Purdue, defending Big Ten
champion Ohio State, and host
Illinois Saturday in a quadrangle
36-hole golf match.
Line-up changes for the Wol-
verines definitely will be made fol-
lowing last week's surprising per-
formance by two of the starting
sophomores. "Changes are defi-
nitely in order," stated Katzen-
meyer. "I'm taking last week's
first five starters but I'm using an-
other sixth man."
Tom Ahern, a returning letter-
man from last year who just
joined the squad this week, will
replace Hallock in this match. The
five definite starters in order are
Captain Bill Newcomb, Chuck
Newton, Tom Pendlebuay, Dave
Cameron and Gary Mouw.
"The team did okay for its first
match," Katzenmeyer continued.
"Purdue and Indiana had at least
one more week of practice than
we because they went toPinehurst

the week prior to our trip. The
weather was just beautiful for
them but we were rained out."
The Michigan coach was making
no excuses for some of his team's
high scores, but feels they will
come down. "This team has it in
itself to play a lot better golf
than last week. I would be aw-
fully disappointed in them if they
didn't show better games before
the Big Ten meet."
Purdue's victory in the meet at
Columbus came as no surprise to
Katzenmeyer. "They have a good
team, but I know they can play
a lot better than they did then. As
for Indiana sharing the lead, I
think they're a good team but they
won't improve that much."
