Baseball Team Goes West

'M' Netters Shut Out Detroit


A clump of hot bats based on a
sound foundation of .300 hitters
forms the character of the Mich-
igan baseball team's improving of-
fense, which will take the field
against the Iowa Hawkeyestoday
as the Wolverines resume confer-
ence action after s w e e p i n g
through two non-league opponents
this week.
With a solid .833 percentage on
five wins and one loss in regular
season play, Michigan is rebound-
ing strongly from the disappoint-
ments of its spring trip.
Coach Don Lund took 18 of his
players on the weekend trip, which
will see the Wolverines play Iowa
in a single game and Minnesota
in a doubleheader tomorrow.
Roebuck Starts
Dave- Roebuck with a 3-1 record
and 3.77 ERA will start against,
Iowa while Fritz Fisher will get
the go sign in the opening game
against Minnesota. John Kerr,
unbeaten at 3-0, is scheduled to
work in the nightcap.
Wayne Slusher, Jim Bobel and
Bob Dunston will also be on hand
and may see action. Slusher made
a good showing in the Central
Michigan game to pick up his sec-
ond victory and maintain his low
1.42 ERA, which is tops for the
club. With a lot of rest since his
Tuesday outing, Slusher is rated
k the top reliefer along with Bobel.
HOT DAT-Dick Honig, Michi

the squad. Honig's timely hittli

Only five infielders make the
trip. Harvey Chapman, shortstop
Dick Honig, second baseman Joe
Jones, first baseman Dave Camp-
bell, and third baseman Jim New-
man will handle the chores.
The five outfielders who will see
duty include Jim Steckley, Den-
nis Spalla, Ron Tate, Dick Post
and Ed Hood.
The main thing responsible for,
the current win streak is the im-
proved team hitting over last sea-
son. "We have more power posi-
tion for position than we had last
year. Our hitters are also coming
through in clutch situations. In
every game somebody else gets hot.
This steady attack wins ball
games',' commented Lund.
Same Lineup
The batting order will remain
the same with Stecklev in clean-
up with the same order that has
been producing in the last few
games. If Campbell's thigh injury
hanipers him some changes will
have to be made.'
The Hawkeyes will pit Dave Rei-
fort against Michigan while the
Gophers, runners-up in Confer-
ence play last season, will start
Ron Buhrt in the opener and John
Stephens in the nightcap. Ste-
phens had a brilliant start last
year, allowing only .44 runs per
game in his 20113 innings on the

Minnesota has lost some of its
top stars of last season due to
graduation and to major league
bonuses. The departure of All-
America first baseman Wayne
Knapp, who received his degree
and outfielder Dave Fritz, a .429
hitting sophomore, signed with the
St. Louis Cardinals, left big gaps
ir the Gopher attack.
Filling in the shoes of the de-
parted stars this season are Rollie
Carson, who finished with a .358
mark a year ago, and John Oster,
the team's sophomore standout.
Wing s Adams
Calls 'It Quits
DETROIT (R) - Jack Adams,
builder of one of the National
Hockey League's most powerful
dynasties in the 1950's, retired yes-
terday after 35 years as General
Manager of the Detroit Red
"It was pretty much my own
decision," said the 66-year-old
former NHL player and coach who
is enshrined in Hockey's Hall of
Fame at Toronto.
Adams retirement after 44 years
in the NHL came as a shock.
He is in robust health, and he
announced his retirement at a
news conference with his typically
booming statements.

The defending Big Ten racket
juggernaut, Michigan, continued
on its winning ways yesterday aft-
ernoon in Detroit, crushing De-
troit, 9-0.
It was Michigan's second meet
since coming back from the spring
trip and the defending champs
haven't lost a match yet. The
Wolverines take their perfect 18-0
record to Purdue tomorrow for
an afternoon meet.
The non-conference opponent,
U-D, proved to be as much trouble
to the Michigan netmen as the
light wind that prevailed through-
out the matches. Only one match
of the nine went beyond the sec-
ond set, Michigan sweeping the
six singles and three doubles
Better Batter
Big Ray Senkowski, the "Hoxie
Whiz Kid," opened the attack for
the Michigan netters by quickly
battering his opponent, Roger
Oberg, a junior, 6-0, 6-0.
In his blanking of the Detroit
number-one man, Senkowski ap-
peared to show the power and fi-
nesse that earned him the title of
Big Ten singles champion last
year as a sophomore.

The warm Detroit weather
proved little or no hinderance to
the Michigan squad although one
replacement was needed. Ron
Linclau was unable to play due to
an unavoidable exam, so seventh
man Alex McCleery stepped in to
fill the bill.
Two for Three
McCleery started out easily
enough in the sixth singles spot,
taking the first set, 6-1. His U-D
opponent, sophomore Joe O'Brien,
was not to be put off so quickly,
however, and stormed back to take
the second, 6-3. In his first trial
of the season, the junior from Ann
Arbor calmed, and pulled out the
third set with a quieting 6-1 score.
