trast to Friday's disappointments
that Canham called yesterday,
"One of the best second days we
ever had.
Morale Problem
"After having such a bad day
Friday, the thing that I was wor-
ried about was that it was going
to wreck our morale," Canham
"But instead the kids came back.
I didn't even think we had a
chance to beat Michigan State
for third. Why, we could have
finished sixth. I'm very happy."
The big letdown Friday came
when Ernst Soudek the favorite
in the discus throw, failed to earn
a single point in his specialty. The
other was a delayed disqualifica-
tion of Kent Bernard late Friday
night after he had won his after-
noon 660-yd. run trial in record
time. Besides the two firsts by
Schmitt and Nuttal and the second
by Puce, Michigan also got out-
standing support from Charlie
Aquino, second in the 880 in
1:51.4; Des Ryan, third in the
mile in 4:14.7; and Jim Neahusan,
third in the two mile in 9:26.1.
Overton Fourth
Rounding out the other Michi-
gan scoring were Steve Overton,
fourth in the pole vault at 14'4";
Mac Hunter, fourth in the 220 in
:21.6; Dan Hughes, fifth in the
660 in 1:19.5; and Chris Murray,
fifth in the two-mile in 9:27.4.'
Michigan also produced its best
time of the season (3:15.6) in a
third place finish in the mile
relay, which Iowa used to edge

Wisconsin for the team title. The
key was a fine :48.5 by junior
David Romain, who had suffered
disappointment after disappoint-
ment all season running the open
440. Bernard anchored the team
in :48.3 but lost a three yard lead
to Wisconsin's Elzie Higgenbottom,
who earlier had won the 440.
Other Legs
Dan Hughes and Mac Hunter
ran the other two legs for the
Wolverines. Records were set by
Purdue's Nate Adams who broke
his own qualifying record by tak-
ing the 220 in :20.8; by Iowa's
Roger Kerr who ran a strong
1:17.4 to break his own qualifying
record in the 660; and by Iowa's
mile relay team of Gary Richards,
Gary Hollingsworth, Bill Frazier
and Kerr, .who combined for a
fine 3:11.2 in the deciding race.
Wind Ruins
Adam's also ran :09.3 in win-
ning the 100, but an aiding wind
of 11 mph illegimated it as a
For Schmitt, producing upsets in
the Big Ten meets is getting to
be a habit. He had come up with
personal best in placing second
outdoors last year and third in-
doors this year.
But yesterday hethrew a fan-
tastic 22" farther than he ever
had before to lead the shot put
qualifiers and then hold the mar-
gin through the finals.,
Puce's throw marked the third
time he had ever done 56' and
gave him an outstanding double,
he had thrown 167'9 1/2to place
third in the discus Friday, won by
Nuttall surprised everyone but
himself in shocking the field in
the highs. He showed no sign of
being handicapped by a sore foot
that had slowed him for much
of the season. He got off to a
slow start and was well back at
the half way mark but kept com-
ing on and was unstoppable by
the time he hit the tape, nearly
a yard ahead of Wisconsin's Mil-
Aquino, who just yesterday was
a doubtful entry in the 880, ran'

a close second to Frazier in that
event today. Aquino, the judges
ruled, had run a dead heat with
MSU's Don Castle in the qualify-
ing section of the 880 and so both
runners were allowed to compete.
Aquino gave Frazier the stiffest
battle the Iowa farmboy has yet
faced in the conference sticking
close to his heels all the way into
the final turn. But then Frazier
steped, out and carried a two yard
margin into the tape to win in a
good 1:51.6.
Aquino equalled his best time
ever and was never threatened for
the runner-up spot.
Strong Finish
Ryan, a sophomore from Dublin
Ireland, put on a specacular fin-
ishing kick to place third in a
strategic mile won by Michigan
State's Jan Bowen in 4:14.3. Ryan,
picking men off on the final turn,
moved briefly into second place
until Iowa's Gary Fischer, the
favorite passed him five yards from
the finish.
Dave Hayes, the Michigan jun-
ior, failed for the first time to
earn points in a Big Ten meet.
Another usual steady performer
who failed to get points was high
jumper Al Ammerman. Ammer-
man could only manage 6'2" in'
the event which was eventually
won by Wisconsin's Bill Holden
with a leap of 6'71/2".
The two-mile was decided by a
scant yard when Illinois' Al Car-
rius fended off Iowa's Ralph
Trimble in 9:15.3. Neahusan and
Murray stayed in the running for
four laps and then gradually drop-
ped off the pace. Murray held
fourth place but was out kicked
by Iowa's Larry Kramer down the
Happy Note
Overton ended his varsity career
on a happy note by clearing his
best height of the year. George
Wade, who broke his pole last
weekend, couldn't place in a good
field led by Minnesota's Chuck
Morrow, who came within %' of
ex-Michigan vaulter Rod Den-
hart's record of 15'%/4".
In the 220 Adams completed his
double win over Michigan State's
Bob Moreland, who was a well-
beaten second. Hunter ran a good
race for fourth behind Illinois'
Trent Jackson.
In the 660 Hughes was last going
into the final turn but finished
strong along the inside lane for
his fifth place.
Michigan's Charlie Peltz was un-
able to place in the 330-yd. in-
termediate hurdles, won by Iowa's
Don Gardner :37.7.

strolled into the hotel suite yes-
terday where coach Don Canham
was giving out his pre-meet in-
structions to his team for the
conference meet for the track
It was 11:15 a.m. and Bernard,
the sophomore from Trinidad, had
gone in to get his lane assignment
for the afternoon's 660-yd. run
finals. He and Iowa's Roger Kerr
had each won their heat in record
"You've been disqualified," Can-
ham said calmly as Bernard took
his seat, "we argued about it but
there is not a thing we can do. I
think it's a rotten decision."
Nearly five hours after Fridays,
preliminary heats had been fin-
ished meet referee Tommy Deck-
ard decided to disqualify Bernard
for running out of his lane. No
explanation was made until yes-
terday morning, when Deckard
said that Bernard's spike marks

Creighton Fleming had run out

qualified immediately after the
race. He would have finished
"If you disqualify one you have
to disqualify the other," said
Deckard. "I just wanted some
time to think about this one. He
did win his heat."

Special To The Daily1
COLUMBUS - The exploding
bats which powered Michigan to ae
5-4 ten-inning win over Ohio State1
in the first game of yesterday's
doubleheader here were extin-i
guished in the second by Buckeye<
Joe Sparma's no-hitter.
Parma's seven-inning master-
piece followed Wolverine ace Fritz?
Fisher's eighth win of the season
and left Michigan a flickering1
hope of winning the Big Ten titlel
and retaining the national crown.
In the first game, back-to-back
ninth-inning home runs by left-
fielder Jim Steckley and Dennisi
Spalla shot the Wolverines ahead
4-3. But the Buckeyes countered1
with a run in the last of the ninthJ
to shove the game into extra inn-i
ings. In the tenth, it again was
the long ball which made the dif-]
Big Blast
Ron Tate, slugging rightfielder,
led off the tenth with a 370-foot
blast over the right field fence and
put the Wolverines in front to
stay, 5-4.
In the second game, the closest
thing to a hit off right-handed
junior Sparma was a shot to left
field in the third inning by third
baseman Dick Post. Post stroked a
liner which looked like a sure
double, but was robbed by Buckeye
Jim Reed's diving stab.
Sparma, a second-string quar-
terback who was shelled last year
by the Wolverines, walked three
en route to the game which he
called "by far the best game I've-
ever pitched." He faced a scant
22 batters, one over the minimum,
as two of the three base-runners
were erased on the bases.
Two Walks
Joe Jones, Wolverine captain
and second baseman drew two
walks. He was wiped out in a
double play in the fourth inning
and in the seventh was forced out
at second. The only other baserun-
ner was Steckley who was nabbed
trying to steal second in the sec-
ond inning.
Sparma was a bit shaky in the
last inning, starting off with six
straight balls. He put in the third
pitch to shortstop Jim Newman
for a, called strike, then fired an-
other ball. With a 3-1 count, New-
man grounded to second, forced
the runner, Jones, but beat the
relay to first.
No Double Play
Ron Tate followed with another
grounder to second and it was
only pinch-runner Bob Cantrell's
body block which broke up the
double play and kept the hopes
alive. Spalla, the next hitter,
popped out to the second baseman
and the whitewash was complete.
Dave Roebuck pitched the sec-
ond game for Michigan and gave
up only two earned runs. The
Buckeyes scored two in the second
when after two were out, catcher
Al Silverman drew a walk. Reed
followed with a bat-handle single
to left and the runners moved to
second and third when Steckley
bobbled the ball.
Centerfielder Steve Scott then
hit a shot past Jones at second
and both runners came in tO
score. The third Ohio State run
came in the seventh on a single,
a sacrifice, and a run-scoring 'sin-
gle off the bat of Silverman.
In the first game aside from
their big blasts, Steckley and Tate,
the leading hitters for Coach Mo-


by Benedict's crew, each walloped
long doubles. Tate's drove in the
second, and then tying run in the
eighth, while Steckley's was the
lead-off hit in the sixth.
The leading home run-hitter
in the Big Ten, John Muchado,
Ohio State third baseman, slug-
ged his fourth in Conference ac-
tion and twelfth of the year. The
400-ft. smash over the centerfield
scoreboard was the first hit off
Fisher and came in the fourth in-
Besides striking out five in his
10-inning stint, Fisher picked
shortstop Bob Klein off first base
twice in the same inning. Klein
was fooled by the lefty's decep-
tive motion to first base, but slid
in under the throw in a run down.
One pitch later, he was caught
again and this time Fisher got
him himself in a rundown.
The Wolverines now have a 6-5
record in the Big Ten and trail
first-place Iowa by one full game.
