Netmen Seed Four from Preliminaries

opponent until the finals in their
respective divisions.'In these po-
sitions, Michigan drew one brack-
et all to itself and left the other
three contending teams to fight
it out for the other final berths.
To add salt to Northwestern's
wounds, Charlie Lockhart, the
Wildcats' defending number four
singles titlist and the co-favorite
with MacDonald, has been ex-
pelled from school for disciplinary
reasons and is not competing.
In number four and five sin-
gles, Indiana and Northwestern
men met in the preliminaries and
split. Jim Erickson of Northwest-
ern eliminated Dick Martin of In-
diana, 6-4, 6-4 in number four
singles. Denny Lortz of Indiana
turned back Northwestern's Bill
Kreml, 8-6, 7-5 in number five.
Spartan Threat
Tomorrow, Michigan, S t a t e
meets Northwestern in the quar-
ter-finals of number four singles
and Indiana in number five. If
the Spartans win all three they
will emerge as a serious threat to
Michigan. Because of today's ac-
tion, both Northwestern and Indi-
ana cannot afford to lose any more
matches and remain in contention.
In the quarter-finals for Michi-
gan, Senkowski should have no
trouble with Dan Mesch of Illi-
nois. Tenney plays Ross Helft of
Purdue. Helft gave Peaccock a
battle royal two weeks ago in Co-
lumbus. Peacock plays Larry Eng-
er of Minnesota. By virtue of his
default win, MacDonald sits out
singles and will play the winner
of the Dick Berg (Purdue) -Dick
Pease (Wisconsin) match in the
semifinals.
Vogt, who advanced from the
preliminaries on a similar default,
takes on Vince Rideout of Wiscon-
sin. Maentz plays Roger Mitchell
of Ohio State.
Doubles Seeding
In doubles, Michigan State and
Northwestern are seeded in every
division. The seedings rwere made
on the basis of season's records
and Michigan's new combinations
have never played together.
In the most important quarter-
final match for Michigan, Mac-
Donald and Vogt meet Lortz and
Bob Ewald of Indiana. Senkow-
ski and Peacock meet Cohen and
Nick Sawacki of Wisconsin. Ten-
ney and Maentz play the winner
of the Illinois-Minnesota prelim-
inary match.

and because of It Irish eyes ar
smiling today.
The Irish couldn't have bee:
as ferocious on meatless Friday a
they were here yesterday.
The clincher came in the tent'
inning when third baseman Jir
Woolwine's triple scored Jac
Gentempo from first base as Nc
tre Dame handed slumping Michi
gan its second straight defeat, 6-!
And it wasn't even St. Patty
Day, either.
Earlier, the Irish had erased

third to start the tenth, but then
Gentempo singled and Woolwine
sent a long drive to right-center
between Dennis Spalla and Jim
Newman. Gentempo scored stand-
ing up.
Mickey Walker, a' sophomore
who somehow found his way to
Notre Dame from Detroit, turned
the tables on his home state by
going the distance for his fifth
win against two losses.
The righthander yielded eight
hits, including doubles by Joe
Jones and Neubrecht. But after a
shaky first five innings which saw
Michigan score all of its runs off
five hits and four Notre Dame
errors, Walker settled down and
blanked the Wolverines on three
hits for the final five frames.
Just Six Hits
Neubrecht and Brefeld held the
Irish to only six hits, but three
Michigan errors accounted for
three unearned runs. Brefeld took

IM SOFTBALL:
Delt Sigs Move Into
Championship Game

I

By BOB BENSON
Delta Sigma Delta downed Nu
Sigma Nu yesterday at Ferry Field
and moved into the finals of the
professional fraternity "A" soft-
ball tournament;
The dentists were led by the
fine hitting of catcher Ron Evasic
who picked up four RBI's on a
two-run homer, a double, and a
sacrifice fly. Pinch hitter Bill
Knapp put all the runs across the
plate for the doctors with a three-
run homer in the sixth inning.
The Delta Sigs broke the game
wide open in the second inning
when they scored four times, being
led by Evasic's two-run homer.
They scored three more times in
the third and once more in the
fourth to give themselves a com-
fortable 8-0 lead going into the
sixth and last inning.
Three-Run Homer
It looked as if the doctors might
make a strong comeback in their
half of the sixth inning when
Knapp hit his three-run homer,
but Delta Sig pitcher John Logan
ended the threat by causing the

his first loss of the season to even
his record at 1-1.
Michigan jumped into a quick
3-0 lead in the first inning. Jones
led off with a walk, and after
Newman and Bill Freehan forced
runners at second, Jim Steckley
singled to put runners on first
and second.
With Merullo at bat, Irish
catcher Walt Osgood tried to pick
Freehan off second but threw the
ball into center field and Freehan
scored, Steckley moving to second.
Three Walks
Merullo, Spalla, and John Hal-
sted then walked in order, to force
in another run. When Walker
tried to quick-pitch Honig, he was
called for a balk and the Wolver-
ines had their third run.
Michigan tallied another when
Steckley singled, went to second
on a grounder and scored when
Notre Dame's second baseman,
George Sescik booted Halsted's
bouncer.
In tie fifth, the Wolverines
made it 5-2 on Freehan's single,
a walk to Steckley and error on
Walker, who dropped the throw
while covering first base on Spal-
la's ground ball.
The Notre Dame fans were real-
ly a on Freehan yesterday. The
morning South Bend Times had
printed an article characterizing
him as one of the most sought
after young players in the nation
by major league scouts.
And after the big catcher went
hitness his first two trips, in ad-
dition to allowing a passed ball
in the third inning, the Irish par-
tisans really hurled the abuse.
Freehan Answers
Freehan answered with a sin-
gle in the fifth inning, but it was
his only hit of the afternoon in
five at-bats.
With the temperature in the low
fifties and dark clouds hanging
overhead, the team seemed almost,

anxious to forget the error-filled
loss and look forward to today's
Big Ten crucial game with Pur-
due.
Don Lund hasn't changed his
righthander Mike Joyce (8-1)
against the Boilermakers.
The loss to the Irish was the
sec(nd setback Michigan sustain-
ed yesterday. Before the Wolver-
ines even left Ann Arbor they
were informed that long-ball hit-
ting first baseman Barry Marshall
would not make the trip.
Marshall is still suffering from
a pinched nerve in his leg which
he sustained in the Wisconsin
game last Friday. Yesterday, Lund
replaced Marshal with outfielder
Halstead. Halstead was hitless in
two trips, and drew a walk.

next batter to pop up for the final
out.
Logan pitched a fine game, al-
lowing only four hits all of which
came in the last two innings.
Ironically enough, Nu Sig pitcher
Dennis Tibble was the man who
broke Logan's no hitter with a
single through the middle with
two out in the fifth inning. The
doctors added their other three
hits in the 'three-run sixth.
In residence hall "A" softball,
Taylor handed Reeves its first loss
of the season with a 7-2 victory.
Paced by Meinz
Pitcher Mary Meinz paced the
Taylormen with a fine pitching
and hitting performance by driv-
ing in three runs in the second
inning with a bases loaded triple,
and giving up only three hits.
Reeves picked up its two runs
in the fourth inning when left
fielder Bob Worden singled with
two men in scoring position.

Sports car spice never came in

so many varieties

...Chevrolet!

Maybe you're a fellow with more or less normal driving habits who's looking
for a change of pace. Or maybe you're a red-hot sports car buff. Either way,
you'll find the fastest relief for that tantalizing itch in your driving foot at your
Chevrolet dealer's One-Stop Shopping Center. He's got cars that run the sport-
ing gamut like no others-nimble Corvair Monzas (2- or 4-door), charged-up
Impala Super Sports (in five different body styles) and the kingpin of produc-
tion sports cars, the Corvette. You can take your choice without
chasing all over town. They're all stablemates under the same roof! CHEVROLEr

CHEVY CORVAIR
MONZA CLUB COUPE
Nestle behind the
wheel in one of those
bucket front seats and
see what Corvair's
rear-engine design has
done for driving.
Steering that responds
to the subtlest hint.
Braking that brings
you to precise even-
keel stops. Traction
that clings like a
cocklebur.
