ietmen Edge Michigan State, 5-4

Name USC Top Team
In College Baseball Poll

Special to The Daily
:ock and Scott Maentz won their
espective singles matches and
then combined for Michigan's only
loubles victory to pace the netmen
o a narrow 5-4 victory over arch-
ival Michigan State here yester-
A near-capacity crowd was on
hand for the match, but a threat
)f rain and cold winds drove over
half of them home before the
neeting Was decided.
Those who did stay almost went
iome cheering. After taking four
gut of six singles matches, the
Wolverines dropped two straight
loubles duels to knot the score at
4-4. But Maentz and Peacock, who
had just dropped the second set

of their match to Brian Eisner and
Dick Hall after taking the first 6-1,
rose to the occasion with a re-
sounding 6-2 victory in the deci-
sive set to give Michigan its eighth
win of the season against only
three losses.
Peacock and Hall were the work-
horses of the match. They faced
each other in a singles contest
which was a marathon, and then
with no rest opposed each other
once again in doubles competition.
The Peacock-Hall match looked
as if it would be one of the shorter
contests of the afternoon rather
than the longest. His blistering
serve off its mark much of the
time, Peacock fell to his southpaw
opponent in the first set 6-3, and
was down 3-1 before rallying to

come within striking range of the
Spartan sophomore in the second.
Hall is also an MSU basketball
From there is was a seesaw bat-
tle for the duration of the set, with
Peacock coming out on top 9-7.
Peacock rallied to take the third
set of the match, 6-2, with both
players, a little tired from their
long middle set, slowing down a
bit and taking longer than asual
to complete the match.
Maentz Wins
Maentz, who faced Spartan Ron
Henry in number-five singles com-
petition, didn't start his match
until after the others were well
under way, but the three-sport
junior was the first to report his

scores to Coach Bill Murphy. He
won in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3.
Eisner, the Spartan captain,
played in the number-one singles
position and subdued Jim Tenney
in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3. Using a
windup almost like that of a
pitcher in his services, Eisner kept
Tenney off balance during the en-
tire match andhgot considerable
applause from the crowd with his
dazzling returns on seemingly sure
points for Tenney. Eisner was sec-
ond in Big Ten number-one singles
last year as a sophomore.
Only one more meet remains on
the Wolverine schedule before the
Big Ten Meet here on May 18-19-
20, with Wisconsin on the 17th on
these same courts.

TUCSON -The University of
Southern California held on to its
ranking as the nation's top college
baseball team in the fourth
monthly poll of coaches by the
newspaper Collegiate Baseball, pil-
ing up 34 first-place votes to run-
ner-up Fresno State's seven.
Michigan was ranked twelfth,
while only two other Big Ten
schools made the top twenty. Min-
nesota, whom the Wolverines beat
in their only encounter, rests in
seventh position while Indiana is
ranked eleventh. Michigan split a
doubleheader with the Hoosiers
last weekend.
Arizona, Oklahoma State and
Texas round out the top five be-
hind the Trojans and Fresno State.
Goeffrion MVP
MONTREAL - Bernie (Boom
Boom) Goeffrion of Montreal, the
scoring champion, edged veterans
Johnny Bower and Gordie Howe in
a close vote to win the Hart Tro-
phy as the National Hockey
League's most valuable player for
the 1960-61 season.
The results of the balloting by
hockey writers and broadcasters
were announced yesterday.
Goeffrion polled 84 points, 55 in
the second half of the split-season
vote. Bower, Toronto goalie, had
71 points followed by Howe of
Detroit, a ve-time MVP, with 66.

In the first half balloting which
was based on games through last
Dec. 29 and announced in mid-
January, Bower led with 48 points
while Goeffrion was fourth with 29.

Fall: A*Long Time Away
REFLECTIONS on the Spring Football finale, or, it's a long wait
,til fall.
Everyone concerned agreed it was a hard-hitting game, with the
sparse turnout on a threatening day being treated to a passing duel
between Dave Glinka and rookie "Frosty" Evashevski; a running duel
between Jack Strobel and Dave Raimey; and a coaching duel between
"bitter" rivals Hank Fonde and Jack Fouts (the winners) and Bob
Hollway, Jack Nelson, and Don Dufek (the losers who bought the
All in all it was an interesting day for the fan trying to get a
sneak preview glimpse of this fall's prospects. He undoubtedly went
away wondering whether the defenses were good in some instances,
and the offense in others, or vice versa. Except for a few concrete
cases it is hard to tell about relative strengths in an intra-squad
It was obvious to everyone that Dave Raimey is a fabulous runner,
better even than last year in the eyes of the coaches, who awarded
him the most improved player trophy for spring practice prior to the
game. "It's coincidental," said Coach Bump Elliott, "that the award
often goes to the best player, too."
On the other hand, left halfback Jack Strobel, expected to be
the number two man next year behind trackman Bennie McRae,
picked up 99 yards running for a 4.7 yard average. Strobel was so
consistent that one press box observer dubbed him "six yard Jack,
who never gets less than four yards or more than eight," which may
or may not hold true next year.

d Passing Battle.,
THE PASSING BATnE between the two quarterbacks made one
point very apparent. Michigan will cause much trouble with its
aerial game if the quarterbacks have time to throw, but in the same
vein, a sometimes lack of protection brought to mind a remark made
earlier by Elliott, that, "Our defense (first last year in the Big Ten)
may be better than our offense again this year."
More than once the white shirted defensive line swarmed over
Glinka, causing the veteran quarterback to end with a -17 yards
gained on the ground. The White's tremendous rushing also caused
Glinka to run out of the pocket several times, which kept his pass at-
tempts down to 10 compared to Evashevski's 25. The latter com-
pleted 12 for 192 yards with Raimey gathering in three of them cov-
ering 84 yards. Glinka's five connections went for 105 yards, a 21
yard average per completion, compared with Evashevsk's 16.
Elliott was obviously pleased with the quarterback situation, so
crucial in Michigan's Winged-T offense. He went on to mention the
rookies, Tom Pritchard and Tom Watters, who have improved greatly
in spring practice, showing up well defensively.
Hopefully add Bob Chandler to the signal-caller's list, and yo
have a wealth of material there. Fans will recallthat Chandler was
injured on his second play in the Michigan State game last year.
His healing knee will be a question mark until tested in fall contact

"We know Bob can really throw the football," said Elliott to the
Michigan Football Writers Saturday, "and we only hope that he
will be able to do so for us next year."
Other Veterans Missing ...
IN SPEAKING of other veterans who sat out Saturday's game for
various reasons, Elliott said that he won't be able to get a real
clear picture of the team, en tote, until fall, which such backs as
Ken Tureaud, Bennie McRae, Jim Ward, Ed Hood, John Stamos, and
Paul Raeder return. He also included ends Bill Freehan and Scott
Maentz and linemen such as Guy Curtis, Lou Pavlov and Wally
But as Hollway said in echoing Elliott, "We answered sone of
our questions, Saturday, but more important we found out just who
the contributors will be next fall, especially among the newcomers."
All of the coaches concurred, that Saturday's enthusiastic game
was a real good wind-up to spring drills, but Elliott had this to say,
"Though we were well-satisfied with spring practice, some of the
same weaknesses that plagued us earlier are still there."
He was referring mainly to the lack of depth in the interior line,
where newcomers are going to have to fill the gaps left by graduating
seniors. Only three lettermen each return at tackle and guard, while
the center position finds two, Todd Grant and John Walker. Senior
veteran Frank Maloney looks like the next in line at the latter slot.
Elliott did not want to single out too many sophomores-to-be be-
fore they have even seen action under Big Ten fire, but he did men-
tion several that show potential after the 20 spring drills.
New Tackles To Help .. .
HE NAMED TACKLES Phil Garrison, Tom Keating, and Jim Wiley
as likely to, help out veterans John Houtman, Curtis, and All-
American candidate Jon Schopf. Coach Fouts had singled out Garri-
son Saturday for a fine showing though he played with an ankle that
wasn't 100 per cent sound.
Elliott was not quite so positive about guard. "John Marcum has
come along real well but after that, the position is up for grabs." He
said the same is true of the center and halfback situations, but he did
mention hard-running Bruce McLenna at right half. Elliott is a
little worried about halfback depth but has adopted, a wait and see
attitude toward this and other problems.
"The newcomers' who are stacking up about even now will rank
themselves this fall," he said, "but we will have to do much improv-
ing before the opener if we want to be considered a contender along
with Michigan State, Iowa, and Ohio State.
Though optimistic, Elliott and his eager staff won't 'e resting in
the long interim between now and the opening of fall practice, as
they will start making necessary preparations for the' September 30
opener with West Coast rival UCLA.
