Michigan diamondmen, fresh
from three victories this past
week-end, travel to Detroit today
in an attempt to reverse a 3-2 loss
suffered in Ann Arbor earlier in
the year.
The Titan's win streak was
halted at 11 last week by Alma
and a Detroit victory over the
Wolverines would probably greatly
enhance their chances for an
NCAA berth in June. In the earlier
contest, a three run homer by
catcher Bill Bartling provided
lanky Ed Mier the margin he
needed for victory.
Goes Route
Mier twirled a neat five hitter
in his route going performance.
Ironically, he was a substitute
pitcher that game when Dave De-

buschere, the ace Titan mounds-

Since then, however, Don Lund's

atop, the conference with an 8-1
mark.

and Mike Joyce for three innings
each, thus giving the three top
pitchers on his staff some work
before the remaining Big Ten con-
tests next week-end.
All three won games last week
and their combined record is 15-2.
Marshall on Bench

Freehan will start at first while
captain Dick Syring, who drove
in the only two runs against Mier
last time, will see action behind
the plate.
This past week-end Lund got
strong pitching performances from
his mound staff plus some timely
hitting by Freehan to regain the
top rung occupied by Minnesota
for the most part of the season.
Freehan single handedly whipped
Wisconsin with two homers, 5
RBIs and three hits in the 6-5

ten inning squeaker.His tenth in-
ning solo clout gave Joyce his
eighth straight win. He has yet
to lose.
Get 12 Hits
Against Northwestern, Michi-
gan supported Fritz Fisher's fine
five-hitter with a 12 hit barrage,
Joe Merullo collecting three of
them. Fisher fanned 10 in posting
his fifth victory of the year, his
only loss suffered at the hands of
Indiana.
The Wolverine momentum car-
ried long enough for the team to
net six runs in the opening in-
ning of the nightcap. This was
all Marcereau needed as the final
count was 6-3. However, a seventh
inning error and a pair of passes
necessitated Joyce's putting out
the fire.
Today's game will give Michi-
gan a chance to get revenge on
the only team to hold an edge on
the Wolverines since the Spring
trip in Arizona.

DICK SYRING
... hopes to repeat

Triangular Victory Fine
Tuneup for M Glers

By JIM BERGER
Although Michigan scored a high
925 in defeating Michigan State
and Ohio State last Saturday, golf
coach Bert Katzenmeyer was
rather pleased with his team's per-
formance.
"The team was not ready the
first round; the tough pin place-
ments hurt the team, but they!
had the ability to recover and pull
themselves together and they
ended up all right," Katzenmeyer
said.
The Michigan mentor was es-
pecially pleased with the fine play
of senior Dick Youngberg. Young-
berg, playing his best game of the
season, scored 147, as compared
with the 155 that he scored last
week at Northwestern.

"Dick was outstanding Satur-
day; he hit like a champion. He
was ready and played like he has
never played this spring," Katzen-
meyer said.
The 154 and 155 scores of Bill
Newcomb and Mike Goode also
impressed Katzenmeyer. "Bill and
Mike were initiated for senior hon-
oraries the day before, and I fig-
ured it would hurt their games
more than it did," the coach said.
Tom Ahern, recovering from a
bad first round, was another pleas-
ing factor. "Tom snapped out of a
bad slump," smiled Katzenmeyer.
However, the 80 scored by cap-
tain Joe Brisson on the second
round showed that he needs a lot
moi ., work. "Joe scored well at
Northwestern last week, but he
realized that he wasn't hitting his
shots right. Last weekend he had
the same problems with his game
and he scored high," Katzenmeyer
said.
The team will get two good prac-
tice sessions in this week, before
Wednesday, when they leave for
Bloomington for the Big Ten meet
on Friday and Saturday, where
their season's fate will be decided.

REMARKS

Year of Decision
IS THIS THE YEAR of decision for Wolverine Club's Block 'M'?
Will it survive as a vital part of Michigan's football pageant, or
will it go the way of many old campus traditions that are slowly
dying out?
The Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics has moved The
Block to the end zone with a $500 gift and a verbal promise that
the Board will be watching the stunt card section very closely. Chair-
man H. O. Fritz Crisler told Club President Judy Caplan that if
the Block shows substantial improvement, more money will be forth-
coming.
Even though losing its "choice" position, between the 10 and 25
yard lines, the Wolverine Club is not too unhappy about the move
to the end zone. Miss Caplan and Block Co-chairman Dan Stone
feel that the change is actually a step in the right direction.
"We will have two advantages over our old location," said Stone.
"First, everyone in the Stadium will be able to see the Block perform
at halftime, and secondly, the students will join the Block because
they want to, and not just to obtain better seats as was true in
the past."
"But," he cautioned, "we need money, about $1,600 in order to
go ahead with our plans to improve the Block."
To Purchase New Equipment...
THE BIG BULK of this amount will go toward the purchase of
thin light plastic flash cards to replace the old, frayed cardboard
ones, with another $300 being spent on new capes. "These new
materials are a necessity, not a luxury," said Miss Caplan, "as the
present equipment is ten years old."
With the money question uppermost in mind, many people are
questioning the value of having a Block, at all, based on past per-
formances.
"We know Block 'M' hasn't been too good in the past," said
Stone, "and we are taking steps to improve the situation, but we
need support." He alluded to the lack of co-operation in the past
and the cumbersome cards as reasons for past failures, but said that
the new location alone would alleviate many of these problems, along
with the new cards and capes.
Stone then outlined at least seven more innovations to correct
faulty past operations that are scheduled for the fall, none of which
will involve a major cash outlay.
stunts. The Block card committee has already devised one stunt for
New instruction cards are being printed, with each one having
seven distinct boxes (one per game) rather than a list of all the
each game.
Public Address System .
A PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM for the Block will be employed to
facilitate the giving of instructions, eliminating the frantic card-
waving from the field in trying to get the members' attention. The
dozen or so people that used to be on the field will now be ushers,
with each one handling eight rows per side and making sure that
his group is preforming correctly.
Stone said that pictures will be taken of Block stunts this
fall and placed in the Fishbowl so that members may see what
the stunts look like. "We want to promote a feeling of accomplish-
ment in the group, and make members feel proud to belong," he said.
Attendance has always been a problem with members straggling
in, sitting in the wrong place, or not coming at all. The new system
will work on a first come, first seated basis with latecomers assigned
to teh poorer seats, giving all an incentive to be on time.
The Block has been criticized often for a lack of unity, which
Stone hopes to alleviate by holding practices, both before the games,
and during the week. He said that at least one will, take place prior
to the first game.
In an effort to give the Block a boost, the cheerleaders have said
that they will work with the group in the Stadium. Since The Block
already correlates its stunts to fit into the Marching Band's routines,
the trio's combination will add greatly to the color and excitement
of a Michigan football game. Stone's improvements are geared mainly
to bringing the Block up to par with- the already fine Band and
Cheerleaders.
Cheerleaders To Help .. .
THE LATTER GROUP has also agreed to lend a helping hand to
Wolverine Club's "education" session for freshmen in Hill Audi-
torium next fall, when the Block's activities will be thoroughly ex-
plained. Stone hopes the meeting will stir up enough enthusiasm so
that the Club can fill the Block with new members.
Wolverine Club members at present are approaching alumni,
student and faculty groups, and others, to try and enlist needed
financial backing. The paradox of the situation is that the Block
can't make a decided improvement without funds for the new
additions. The feeling of Club members is that their new program
is good enough to warrant support from various organizations. Do
you want to kick someone when he is down, or help him when he

needs support? Wolverine Club members certainly are not sitting
back waiting for a donor to solve all their problems.
"We will fight all the way to have a good Block," said Miss
Caplan, "even if we have to use our old, beat-up equipment. We are
not doing this for our own interests but for the welfare of the
Michigan student body."
