3M' Nine Awaits NCAA Verdict

Take Trip

,

By DAVE GOOD
Eugene, Ore., isn't usually re-
garded as the Playground of the
West, but that's where Michigan
track Coach Don Canham is tak-
ing part of his Big Ten champion-
ship team to "kid around" next
month.
That's also where this year's
NCAA track meet is scheduled on
June 15-16, and it's no coinci-
dence that Canham and his boys
plan to be there at the same time
But Canham is so relieved to
have the conference meet behind
him that he claims the Wolverines
are just going to run for fun in
the collegiate meet. (Another min-
or factor is that Canham doesn't
expect to win the team title.)
"It'll be between (defending
champion) Southern California
and (host team) Oregon," ran-
ham predicted. "All the rest of us
are pretty even."
Warriors
To Frisco
In' Big Sale'
NEW YORK (RP)-The Philadel-
phia Warriors, and Wilt Chamber-
lain, finally moved to San Fran-
cisco yesterday.
After a month-long series of
meetings the National Basketball
Association's Board of Governors
approved the sale of the franchise
for $850,000 and the shift to San
Francisco although the Boston and
New York clubowners v o t e d
against it.
Only 19 days ago, the governors
debated the possible sale and
transfer in several long sessions.
Despite the pleas of the Warriors'
owner, Eddie Gottlieb, the pro-
posal was rejected.
"I wanted the deal," said Gott-
lieb yesterday, "because I felt it
was a good one.
"I have put in many years in
basketball and have begun to
think of retirement and to get
ready for it. Despite this, I made
,,!every effort to purchase a team
to represent Philadelphia in the
. NBA this coming year but without
success.
"I would like to see Philadel-
phia return to the NBA in the
near future. Until then I am mak-
ing' every effort to line up some
league games there so that pro
basketball will be kept alive in
Philadelphia this season."n
Boston and New York wanted
to keep the Warriors in Phila-
delphia enabling them to have
more games with the Philadel-
phians and their box office mag-
net, the 7-foot Chamberlain.

Any improvement that Michi-
gan makes over last year's finish,
when it tied Abilene Christian for
sixth with 18 points, wil come from
two seniors who have already de-'
cided that they're not going just
for fun-Ergas Leps and Bennie
McRae.
They want to win their events,
and if they do, the Wolverines will
better last year's point total even
without any help from the other
two whom Canham is saure of tak-
ing-Rod Denhart and Charlie
Aquino.
All four were winners for the
Wolverines in the conference meet
over the weekend, Leps in the
mile, McRae in the 120-yd. highs
and 220-yd. lows, Denhart in the
pole vault and Aquino in the 660-
yd. run.
Canham will be entering Leps
and Aquino in the 880, McRae in
ithe highs and Denhart in the
vault, but he also has the option
of taking the three men who plac-
ed second in their events, high
jumper Steve Williams, discus
thrower Ernst Soudek and shot
putter Roger Schmitt.
Time toTel
But Canham says that their per-
formance in practice the next
week or so will decide whether or
not they make the trip. Soudek
will have to hit 170', about nine
over his Big Ten mark, and Wil-
liams will have .to maintain his
status quo, about 6'6".
Canham points out that the big
weight men around the rest of
the country are going so well that
Schmitt, who weighs only 195,
would have to hit some six feet
over his best mark to make the
trip. "H'll have to get up around
60'," Canham commented.
Leps picks Fordham's Frank
Tomeo and Oregon's Sig Ohle-
mann and Archie San Romani as
among his top opponents, and
McRae named Oregon's Jerry Tarr
(the defending champion) and
Maryland State's Russ Rodgers as
the men to beat in the hurdles.
Wolverines
Rate No. 14
By The Associated Press
The Michigan baseball team
rates as the nation's 14th best col-
lege baseball team according to
the nationally distributed maga-
zine, Collegiate Baseball.
Florida sporting a 25-6 record
received 17 first place votes while
Big Ten Champions Illinois had 16
first place votes and was only four
votes behind. Florida had 231
points while Illinois had 227.
Santa Clara, with 14 first place
votes, was tvoted third with 219
points.

Last year Leps placed third and
McRae fourth when Michigan had
to compete without sprinter Tom
Robinson, who was held up by a
property settlement in his native
Bahamas.
"He'd lDave won the 220 going
away," remarked Canham. "They
were lousy. And he probably
would have been second in the 100
to (Villanova's Frank) Budd."
With Robinson, the Wolver-
ines would have had fourth place
sewed up. But without him they

By JOHN SCOCHIN
If you can't win a nickel try for
a dollar could be the new motto of
the Michigan baseball team which
lost the Big Ten championships
last week in Wisconsin but may
get a chance to try for the big
one, the NCAA title.
Still remembering the long
homerun blast of Wisconsin's Pat
Richter which knocked them from
first place in the final conference
standings the Wolverines must
now stand around and wait pa-
tiently for the decision of the
NCAA selection committee which
will meet Sunday to pick the
teams in the district four elimi-
nations.
Western Michigan, the cham-
pion of the Mid-America Confer-
ence, is the only shoe-in, but Big
Ten titleholder Illinois should be
an almost unanimous choice for
the second spot. The University of
Detroit which finished its season
with only two losses, at the hands
of Michigan State and Bowling
Green, looks like another front
runner.
Notre Dame or Michigan
The other position will be be-
tween Michigan and Notre Dame.
The Wolverines should have the
edge, since they battered the Irish
18-4 in one meeting and were
leading 2-0 in another game be-
fore it was called because of rain.
"Assuming we are selected I be-
lieve the teams that would be the
toughest to beat would be Illinois
or Western Michigan. Both have
fine pitching and in a short se-
ries like the NCAA, a couple of
fine pitchers may mean victory,"
Lund said.

"Western always has a good
steady ballclub. It makes few mis-
takes in the field so it doesn't
beat itself, which is the mark of
a successful unit," Lund stated.
Detroit will place its fortune'in
the hands of Pete Craig.
Coach Lund will probably be
without the services of ace short-
stop Dick Honig if the Wolverines
make the tourney. Honig, who
had six stitches put into his hand
because of an injury in the Wis-
consin game would probably be
replaced by dependable Jim New-
man.
Fritz May Go
Unlucky Fritz Fisher, who hurl-
ed the homerun ball to Wiscon-
sin's Richter, with the best ERA
on the squad, will probably start
the first game for Michigan. The
big winning duo of Dave Roebuck
and John Kerr would pitch the
If Michigan is selected, the
choice of ballparks should be nar-

rowed down to Michigan or West-
ern Michigan. Detroit doesn't have
the facilities for the tourney. Il-
linois has a good diamond, but
poor accommodations for both
fans and the press. Both Western
and Michigan, however, have the
seating capacity, and fine field
conditions to warrant serious con-
sideration.
The tourney will probably start
Tuesday May 29 and continue
through the 31. Coach Lund said,
"All of the four competing schools
have their final exam periods be-
ginning around June 1, so we
would want to have the tourney
out of the way before then, so
as not to conflict with exams.
The winner of this two game
knockout in the District Four
playoffs will advance to the Col-
lege World Series in Omaha, Neb.
The series will also be a two game
knockout.

needed help from Dave Martin
(third in the 3,000-meter steeple-
chase), Les Bird (sixth in the
broad jump) and Dick Cephas
(sixth in the 440-yd. hurdles) to
get in the top half-dozen.
This time they're out for a
good time, a third behind the two
West Coast giants or maybe both.
** *
In the meantime, while the rest
of the team is scattering to all
parts of the country, junior Steve
Overotn will be learning to pole
vault all over again this summer.
Overton, who was disappointed
when he cleared only 13'6" and
failed to place in the conferenceI
meet, will be picking up pointers
from Denhart on how to switch to
the flexible fiberglass pole.

Hurlers Great
Illinois rode to the top of the
Big Ten behind the strong arms
of pitchers Tom Fletcher and Doug
Mills. In the key games the two
hurlers always came through. Both
finished unbeaten seasons with
seven wins apiece.
The Western nine shouldn't
take a back seat to the powerful
Illini, even in the pitching depart-
ment. Bronco starters Bill Ort-
leib and Ken.Larson also finished
the season unscathed tith six and
five wins, respectively.
The bad boys from the west al-
so are a good hitting crowd. Ken
Kowalski; Bud Dodge, Mike Ihney,
and Fred Michalski are all .300
hitters and Michalski has power
to go with it.
