URBANA-The Michigan base-
ball team made too many mistakes
here yesterday to expect to win
and dropped a tough 6-5 decision
to Illinois in the Big Ten opener
for both teams.
The loss left the Wolverines'
season record at 7-5.
Michigan's starting pitcher,
Fritz Fisher, wasn't quite as sharp
as he had been previously in the
season, according to Coach Moby
Benedict. Fisher hit two batters
and walked three as he lost his
first game against four wins.
These five free passes, when
combined with three Wolverine er-
rors, helped the Illini push across
just enough runs for the victory.
Potentially more damaging to
the Wolverines' title hopes was

an eighth inning injury to short-
stop Dick Honig. The Detroit sen-
ior was hit by a pitch on the left
wrist as he led off the eighth in-
ning. He stayed in the game as a
runner and eventually scored the
game-tying run.
But Honig's wrist started to
swell and Benedict replaced him
with Jim Newman in the bottom
of the eighth. Honig will definite-
ly miss this afternoon's double-
header with Purdue. He was to
have X-rays taken this morning
to determine the extent of the in-
jury.
A shaggy start by Fisher and
sloppy defensive play allowed Illi-
nois to take a 5-2 lead at the end
of four innings. The Wolverines
battled back to tie it up with Ho-
nig's run in the top of the eighth,
but the Illini squeezed a run across

in the bottom of that inning to
gain the victory.
"We just made too many mis-
takes to win the ball game," said
Benedict.
History Repeats
The Illini edged the Wolverines
last year, 1-0. Fisher also lost that
game. Illinois went on to win the
Big Ten championship when Mich-
igan lost a doubleheader to Wis-
consin on the last day of the sea-
son.
Illinois went into the game with
a 5-7 record. The Illini were sup-
posed to be weaker than last year
after losing many of their starters,
including their four top pitchers,
from their Big Ten championship
team.
But Coach Lee Eilbracht came
up with a solid pitcher, Pat Hol-
land, who kept Michigan under
control. Holland pitched only sev-
en innings all last season because
he was plagued by arm trouble.
Holland gave up three singles,
a double, and a triple-all to the
bottom part of the Michigan bat-

ting order. Dave Campbell, Jim
Steckley, Pete Adams, and Fisher
carried almost the total offensive
load.
The Wolverines trailed 5-2 at
the start of the seventh inning, in
which the biggest offensive threat
of the Wolverines almost knocked
Holland off ahe mound. Campbell
started the rally with a single;
and Steckley followed with an-
other single advancing to second
when the throw to third base was
too late to catch Campbell.
Sophomore catcher Adams
knocked in both the runners with
the third straight Michigan hit,
but the rally fizzled out and the
Wolverines were still behind.
In the eighth, after Honig was
hit, he reached second on Ron
Tate's infield out. Then he scoot-
ed to third on a passed ball, and

SAO PAULO, Brazil - Cuba
trimmed the United States 3-1 yes-
terday in a Pan-American Games
baseball contest with Cold War
overtones, while the Yankees add-
ed five more gold medals to their
bag for a total of 38.
Roy Saari of El Segundo, Calif.,
and the American men's 440-meter
medley relay team extended the
Yankee gold medal monopoly in
the swimming events with victor-
ies.

Saari captured the 400-meter
freestyle with a strong finish over
teammate Don Schollander, Santa
Clara, Calif. The relay team scor-
ed by 20 meters over Argentina,
with Canada third,
The other three American vic-
tories came in the women's team
foil fencing, and the rapid fire
pistol shoot.
Brazil, the only other nation in
the Games with more than one
gold medal, picked up two in ten-
nis, in the men's singles and dou-
bles, and Mexico got its first in
mixed doubles.
The United States also ran its
total of silver medals to 13and
bronze to 10, both high for the
Games.
Ronald Barnes oeBrazil won
the men's tennis singles over Ma-
rio Llamas of Mexico, 6-4, 6-0; 6-3,
and teamed with Carlos Fernan-
dez to defeat Llamas and Fran-
cisco Contreras in the doubles, 6-2,
6-2, 6-2.
Mexico's Contreras and Yolan-
da Ramirez defeated Maria Bueno
and Thomas Koch of Brazil 6-2,
6-2, for the mixed doubles title.
American girls won both heats
in qualifying tests for Sunday's.
finals in both the 400-meter free-

style and the 100-meter back-
stroke.
Robyn Johnson of Arlington,
Va., won her 400-meter heat in 4
minutes, 58.8 seconds, and Sharon
Finneran of Los Angeles won in
4:58.4.
Cathy Ferguson of Burbank,
Calif., and Nina Harmer of Phila-
delphia scored in the backstroke
in 1:12.1, and 1:11.6.
Miss Harmer's time was a meet
record, giving the Yankee swim-
mers three marks for the day.
Saari's 4:19.3 for the 400 free-
style snapped the mark of 4:29.4
set by Schollander Monday in a
heat. The relay team's 4:05.6 broke
the 4:14.9 set by the United States
in 1959 at Chicago.
The United States now has won
all 10 swimming finals decided so
far.
A surprisingly small crowd of
about 3000 saw the Cuba-United
States baseball game. The victory
virtually wrapped up the medal in
the sport for the Cubans, who
blasted the United States team 13-
1 earlier in the competition.
Oddly, the United States has
never won the Pan-Am baseball
mewl, which has gone to Cuba,
the Dominican Republic and Mex-
ico in previous Games.

PHILADELPHIA - Michigan's
four mile relay team of Dave
Hayes, Des Ryan, Jim Neahusan
and Charlie Aquino broke the Penn
State Relay four mile relay record
by :05.2 seconds but only placed
sixth as six teams battered the
old Penn State record of 17:11.3.
The relay was won by the
Fordham team in a time of 16:42.7.
Batt Cucchiara, Norbert Sanders,
Joe McGovern and Tom Kennedy
outdid themselves in handing their
coach, Artie O'Conner, a birthday
present.
In thediscus the Wolverines did
somewhat better, but there was
still a. bit of disappointment as
Ernst Soudek failed to come close
to his record toss of last week,
177'4". Soudek could only manage
165'10%/",and a fourth place.
Teammate George Puce did
somewhat better with a toss of
167'1", good for second place. The
top man in the discus was John
Bakkenson of Harvard who man-
aged a toss of 169'4y2n".
Chris. Stauffer of Maryland won

the opening event at the 59th an-
nual Penn Relays yesterday by
capturing the 400-meter hurdles
in meet record time of 51.2 sec-
onds.
Stauffer, runner-up last year in
the NCAA 440-yard hurdles, de-
feated Oregon State's Tom Wyatt
by about eight yards in the first
of five heats. Wyatt was clocked
in 52 seconds flat.
Stauffer, who will anchor the
Maryland shuttle hurdle relay
team today, also qualified for the
finals of the 120-yard high hur-
dles. Paul Jones of Wayne State
with 14.4 led the high hurdlers in
qualifying.
Villanova was a pre-race stick-
out in the 4-mile. The Wildcats
had no excuse in the relay as
Fordham's Joe McGovern took the
lead from early pacesetter, Seton
Hall, in the third mile, and won
easily.
Michigan State's quartet of John
Parker, Walker Beverly, Sherm
Lewis and Bob Moreland, led the
440-yard relay qualifiers with a
41.8 time.
Moreland also equalled theRe-
lay's record for the 100 ydkdash
in the trials with a :09.5 clocking.

Michigan's netmen, winners over
Western Michigan Thursday, take
on Notre Dame today at 2:00 on
the Varsity Courts.
The 8-1 victory over the Broncos
was the Wolverines' f o u r t h
straight, and left their season
mark at 4-4.
The Wolverines face an Irish
team that compiled an 11-8 mark
last year, with only two men gone
and some top material on the
sophomore horizon. Coach Tom
Fallon will send either Captain
Joe Brown, or outstanding sopho-
more Raull Katthain against Ray
Senkowski in the number on slot.
Two-Year Vet
Brown is the team's only two-
year letterman, while Katthain is
a highly touted sophomore from
Mexico City. Whichever one does
not go against Senkowski will face
John Fraser, the number two Wol-
verine so far this year.
The other Irish returnees are
juniors Alan Davidson and Bob
Fitzgerald, who will share the
number three and four slots
against Brian Flood and Hal
Lowe. Fallon will choose from

among Jim Goetz, Dick Berry, Ru-
ben Carriedo, John Clancy, Steve
Price, and Bruce Vosburg for the
remaining notches, with Goetz
rated the highest of the bunch.
In 1962, the Wolverines man-
handled Notre Dame, 8-1, to ex-
tend their lifetime domination over
the South Bend aggregation to
16-10.
Clean Sweep
Thursday's tiff with Western
Michigan yielded a clean sweep
for the Wolverines with the ex-
ception of Bo Barker, who suc-
cumbed to Bronco Jack Birkenbus
in fifth doubles. Although Michi-
gan won by a wide margin over
WMU, the individual matches were
not nearly so close.

By DAVE BLOCK
Over two hundred athletes will
come flocking to the Michigan
track this afternoon for the Mich-
igan Open Federation Meet, the
first such home gathering of the
young outdoor season.
The field events start at 1 p.m.
and the first running event at
1:30.
Although many of the Wolverine
trackmen have trouped to Phila-
delphia this weekend for the Penn
Relays, a large and abundantly
qualified segment has remained
to represent the team in the home
meet. Also participating will be
representatives of Michigan State,
Western Michigan, Wayne State,
Ohio State, and the Ann Arbor
Track Club.
Featured in the pole vault will
be three varsity athletes, Ed Hink-

son, Steve Overton, and George
Wade. Also competing will be Bob
Neutzling, a promising OSU fresh-
man who has already vaulted 14'6"
this spring.
Ernst Soudek, Michigan weight
man, will be serving double duty
this weekend. This afternoon in
Philadelphia he will be heaving
the discus as an entrant in the
Penn Relays. However, immediate-
ly after completing this action
he will fly back to Ann Arbor to
participate in the shot put and
discus events tomorrow in the Fed-
eration meet.
Joining him in the shot put
competition will be Dave Mutch-
ler of MSU, Roger Schmitt of
Michigan, John Brunson of the
AATC, and Wolverine frosh Ruddy
O'Boyle entering unattached.
The 120-yd. high hurdles will
include in its field varsity men
Cliff Nuttall and Norm Kohns,
freshman Roy Woodton, and Tom
Peckham of MSU. Leading the
sprinters in the 100-yd. dash will
be John Gregg, who a few years
ago was runnerup to Michigan
great Tom Robinson in the in-
door Big Ten 60-yd. dash. Joining
Gregg will be his AATC team-
mate John McLaren, Gay Barham
of WMU, and Michigan frosh Wil-
lie Brown.
Rivalry
The competition in the one mile
run will be extremely keen as
steady Michigan two-miler Chris
Murray will face Dick Sharkey of
MSU who finished a very close
second behind Murray in the Fed-
eration indoor two mile race.
Freshmen Run
I In the 440-yd. dash, Hal Holmes
of the AATC will compete with
Michigan freshman Bob Jarema

and Mac Hunter of the varsity.
The 660 will feature Jarema with
fellow frosh Bob Zieskie and Wol-
verine Ken Burnley.
Possibly the most closely con-
tested race will be the half mile
run. The AATC has entered Wally
Schafer, a former Michigan track-
man, and Earl Deardorff, a one-
time captain of the Wolverines.
Angus MacDougald will represent
the present Michigan varsity and
two Wolverine freshmen, Cecil
Norde and Joel Lewitz, will also
compete.
Norde, in the indoor Federation
half mile run was a close second
to great Michigan half-miler,
Charlie Aquino. Another notable
entrant in this field is Bill Stew-
art, a WSU freshman who is a
former Detroit city champion
trackman.
