' Netters Enter Finals in
Five Singles, Three Doubles

Special To The Daily
IOWA CITY-Qualifying twelve
men for the finals in six events
was good enough to put Michigan
in the drivers seat here yesterday
in its bid for its first Big Ten
outdoor track title since 1956.
Indiana and Northwestern have
nine qualifiers each, Iowa seven,
and nobody else more than three.
But everything is not coming up
roses for the indoor champs.
They've been shut out in the only
two finals held so far, the broad
jump and discus throw, and quali-
fied nobody for today's 440-yd.
dash final.
Illinois Leads
After these two events Illinois
leads with nine points, Ohio State
has eight, Iowa and Michigan
State four each, Purdue and Indi-
ana two each, and Minnesota one.
The broad jump, won by Illinois'
Deryck Taylor, was a big disap-
pointment for the three contenders
everybody expected to fight it our
for the title.
Illinois' Paul Foreman, who won
the indoor crowd, was hobbled by a.
leg injury and managed only a
third. Michigan's Les Bird, second
indoors, was through almost before
he started.
"I hurt my leg on the first jump
and he (Dick Thelwell) hurt his
on the second," explained Bird.
Field Changed'
The Ann Arbor Rugby Club
will play the University of St.
Louis at 2 p.m. at the TappenI
Jr.. High field at the corner ofI
Washtenaw and Stadium today
instead of at Wines field as
originally scheduled.
Neither they nor Doug Niles could
make the finals for the Wolver-
Real Drama
But the real drama came when
Michigan State's Sonny Akapata,
who had been leading at 24'5%/",
passed up his next to last jump
and then saw Taylor take the lead
away with a great 24'11%" effort
on his last jump. Akapata couldn't
improve his performance and had
to settle for a second.
Michigan dind't even enter any-
one in the discus throw. Ohio
State picked up three more points
in that event than the five they
got during the whole indoor meet.
Larry Schmalenberger won his

third straight discus title for the
Buckeyes with a throw of 163'3%".
Iowa's Cloyd Webb was second at
161'11/2" and Ohio State's George
Mirka was third.
Set Stage
Indiana's Ed Miles and Michi-
gan's Tom Robinson set the stage
for today's showdown in the 100-
yd. dash as each won his heat in
Miles handed the Bahama Bullet
his first conference loss by beating
him in the 60-yd. dash indoors,
but had help from what coach Don
Canham called an unequal start.
"The group went off in waves," he
John Gregg and Dick Cephas
each finished second in his heat
for the Wolverines, with Gregg
challenging Miles in their heat.
In the 220-yd. dash, Robinson
timed :21.4 around the turn to win
his heat, and Gregg his :21.8 to
beat Miles, who qualified back in
fourth place. Both won easily,
Gregg by four yards and Robinson
by seven.
The first heat of the 880-yd. run
was a see-saw battle. After the
first lap Charlie Acquino led the
pack and Ergas Leps was dead
last. Acquino was knocked all the
way back to fourth on the straight
away, but never quit.
As Leps kicked past everybody
on the turn to win easily in 1:51.4,
Acquino followed suit 'and nearly
caught Iowa's Ralph Trimble for
second. Dave Martin sprinted into
the lead on the final turn in the
second heat, but let Gary Fischer
pass him on the stretch and
coasted in second.
Dave Odegard of Minnesota won
his 220-yd. low hurdle heat around
the turn in :23.9 and Cephas
closed fast to win the second heat
in :24.5. Michigan's Charlie Peltz
had been leading but missed his
step near the end and qualified
Kicked Hurdle
Michigan's Bennie McRae kicked
down his first hurdle in the 120-
yd. highs but finished flawlessly
to win in a good :14.3. Canham
didn't enter him in the lows be-
cause McRae hurt his back last
year in that race around the turn.
In the 660-yd. run Frank Geist
moved past one man on the far
straightaway, passed another on
the turn and almost caught Illi-
nois' Jim Hammond.
Northwestern's Ed West clocked
a record 1:20.6 in the new event,
but Indiana's Gene Graham low-
ered it to 1:20.3 in the second heat.

STANDOUTS UNDER PRESSURE-Tom Robinson breaks the tape for another win for Michigan in
the sprints during the regular season. His winning form led Michigan qualifiers in the Big Ten
meet yesterday. Dick Youngberg blasts another to top Wolverine linksters by holding on to third
place at the end of the first day's action at the conference golf meet.

homerun, again clearing the left
center field barrier. And in the
ninth with the bases full and
Michigan trailing 5-4, the big{
sophomore belted another close-
line single to left which scored Ed
Hood and Joe Jones to put the
Wolverines in front to stay.
Only Out
The only time Purdue could get
Freehan out was in the fifth when
he flyed to center.
Yesterday Michigan staged out
a 3-0 lead after two and a half
innings on Freehan's two run
homer in the first and a single
tally in the third. But a fired up
Purdue ball club came storming
back in the bottom of the third
to score three runs on three hits.
In the sixth, Purdue went ahead
5-3 on back to back doubles by
Sczurek and pitcher Charles Holle,
a ground out, and Haggerty's sac-
rifice fly.
Freehan closed the gap to one
run with his leadoff homer in
the eighth, but it looked like Mich-
igan was through when Dyck Honig
lifted a fly to Lehr in left to
open the ninth.
But Ed Hood, pinch hitting for
relief pitcher John Kerr, bounced
one into the hole between short
and third and beat Allen's throw
for an infield single.

Leadoff hitter Joe Jones fol-
lowed with a line drive single be-
tween first and second, Hood stop-
ping at second. After Holle threw
one ball to Newman, Boilermaker
Coach Joe Sexson replaced the
tiring fastballer with Niel Zeich.
Newman worked the rigth and-
ed reliever to a full count and
then walked to load the bases and
set up Freehan's game winning
Dick DeLamielleure provided an
insurance run with a sunfield
double, but as it turned out, it
wasn't needed.
As far as Michigan Coach Don
Lund is concerned; he admits he
is through trying to play them
two at a time. He changed his
pitching rotation yesterday for the
first time all season, and it almost
cost him the game.
Changed Rotation
Lund went to bed Thursday night
fully intending to pi+ch ace right-
hander Mike Joyce on Friday as
he had done successfully all year.
But in the morning he changed
his mind and dec'.ded to save
Joyce for the first game of today's
doubleheader against Illinois. In-
stead, he nominated lefthander
Marcereau to pitch against the'
(supposedly) weaker Purdue squad.
But Marcereau uRt didn't have
it. Before he was lifceti for a pinch

hitter in the top of the fourth, the
senior southpaw had been touched
for three runs on five hits.
Dennis McGinn -followed Mar-
cereau to the mound and pitched
the middle three inuings yielding
three runs on four Kist.
Kerr Winner
John Kerr, who shutout the
Boilermakers during his two in-
ning stint in the seventh and
eighth was the winner.
And as it turned out, Lund had
to use Joyce yesterday anyway.
The big sophomore, preserved
Kerr's victory by bLinking Purdue
in the ninth.
The upshot of all these shenani-
gans will be that Fritz Fisher will
hurl the first game of the Illinois
twinbill today, with Joyce coming
back to pitch the seven inning

Special To The Daily
red-hot Jack Nicklaus, Ohio State
ended up the first day of action
in the Big Ten golf meet at the
Indiana golf course in a 759-759
tie with a well-balanced Michigan
State team.
Michigan, with a 774 total, was
fourth, following defending cham-
pion Purdue with 771. Minnesota
with 777 was fifth, followed by
Iowa with 778 and Indiana with
779. Northwestern, Wisconsin and
Illinois were all well below the
Nicklaus, with a 68-70-138, al-
most singlehandedly put the Buck-
eyes into contention. On the first
nine of the morning round, the
Ohio State superstar went out
with a two-under-par 33, and
came back with a one-under-par
35 for a 68, which was only three
strokes away from the course rec-
ord of 65 set by Indiana's gradu-
ated Ron Royer. It broke the Big
Ten competitive record of 69 held
by Roger and Forest Jones.
With his four under par score,
Nicklaus, in his quest to become
indivdual m e d a l i s t, is six
strokes ahead of his nearest rival,
Jack Rule, Jr. of Iowa. Michigan's
Dick Youngberg, with a 73-74-
147, is third in the individual
Depend on Depth
Michigan State, with five play-
ers under 155, depended on depth
rather than on one very low scor-
er. Leading the Spartans was Bud-
dy Badger with a 76-74-150, fol-
lowed by Gene Hunt and Gary
Barrett, both with 151 totals. C.
A. Smith, third in the conference
last year, scored a 153, while Tad
Schmidt ended up with a 154.
The Wolverines got off to a
strong start in the morning, and
after the first round Michigan
slimly led the field. With the ex-
ception of captain Joe Brisson's
80, all of the Wolverines were be-
low the eighty mark, and after
the first round, tallying the five
low men, which is done in team
scoring for the meet, Michigan
had a 76 stroke per man average.
Low Man
Youngberg, with his two-over-
par 73, was low man, followed by
Mike Goode and Bill Newcomb
with 76's. Chuck Newton scored
a 77 and Tom Ahern chalked up
a 78.
However, in the second round
the bottom fell out of the Michi-
gan game. Youngberg shot a 39 for
the first nine, Brisson a 41, New-
comb a 41. and Goode a 39. Only
Ahern with a 37 prevented a solid
sweep of catastrophe.
Michigan golf coach Bert Kat-
Szenmeyerhoped for a recovery,
but only Youngberg and Newton
came through. Goode was in the
eighties for the first time this
year; Brisson shot his second con-
secutive 80; Ahern went bad or
the second nine for an 80; and
Newcomb shot a disastrous 82.
1 The small Wolverine lead was
wiped out and they found them-
selves 15 strokes off the pace.

EAST LANSING - Defending
champion Michigan carries a slim
54-49 lead over surprising Michigan
State into the finals of the Big
Ten tennis tournament today.
Michigan qualified for five sin-
gles finals and all three doubles
finals. MSU rallied to qualify four
men in the singles finals and two
doubles teams.
The Spartans and Wolverines
clash head on in five of the nine
final matches today. The pressure
is on MSU, but it will have a home
court and home crowd advantage
when the action begins this after-
Must Play Well
To win, Michigan must play well
against their Spartan opponents
in the finals. A loss would be three
points added for Michigan State
plus three more points which
Michigan could not get.
Indiana is a distant third with
21 points followed by Illinois with
20 and fading Northwestern with
191/2. The rest in order are Min-
nesota 72/2, Purdue 6, Ohio State
5%, Wisconsin 3, and under-
manned Iowa 1.
Only Jim Tenny at number two
singles failed to gain a final berth
for Michigan. Ray Senkowski
(number one), Bruce MacDonald
(number four), Bill Vogt (number
five), and Scott Maentz (number
six) all advanced as expected.
Wayne Peacock won a decisive
marathon match over Stuart Co-
hen of Indiana, 8-10, 6-1, 6-2 to
gain the right to oppose Roger
Plagenhoef of Michigan State in
the number three finals.
Plag'enhoef upset Northwestern's
Ken Paulson who had been shift-
ed down from number two in a
last minute maneuver by Wildcat
coach Clare Reissen.
Earlier Peacock had easily dis-
posed of Jerry Enjer of Minnesota
6-1, 6-4.
In the most exciting match of
the day, Michigan's Jim Tenny
lost the number two semi-finals to
an inspired Dick Hall of Michigan
State 4-6, 6-2, 7-5.
Senkowski warmed up with the
sunny weather to batter Dan
Mesch of Illinois 6-2, 6-2 and Skip
Gage of Northwestern 6-2, 6-1.

Ann Arbor's Only

In the finals he meets Don Thorne
of Indiana. Thorne ousted 1960
runner-up Brian Eisner of MSU
with surprising ease 6-0, 6-2.
Tenny got by Purdue's Ross
Helfp in the morning 6-3, 6-2 and
then ran smack into the lanky
Hall who spends his winters start-
ing at forward for Fordy Ander-
son. Tenny won the first set and
almost had the high strung Hall
on the ropes with his methodical
ground game.
Decisive Rushes
But the difference was Hall's
decisive rushes to the net and
unstoppable overhead smashes.
Tenny and Hall played through
four deuces in the last game be-
f ore Hall ended the match with an
MacDonald had no trouble with
Dick Tease of Wisconsin in the
semis, winning 6-1, 6-2. He meets
Jack Damson of MSU in the finals.
Prep Meet
The state high school class B
track finals will take place to-
day at 1:30 p.m. at Ferry Field.
Damson eliminated highly regard-
ed Jim Erickson of Northwestern
in the quarterfinals.
Vogt took Wisconsin's Zince
Rideout in the morning 6-2, 7.5
and brushed by Frank Chambers
of Illinois 6-2, 6-0. He also meets
a Spartan, Ron Henry in a match
for top honors at that position.
Henry beat Denny Lortz of In-
diana earlier in the day.
Number Six
Maentz must get by Bob Ewald
of Indiana to win the number six
title. The hulking football end beat
Roger Mitchell of Ohio State 6-3,
6-3 and Steve Heller of Illinois, 6-
3, 6-4 to gain'his final berth.
Michigan waltzed into the three
doubles finals without any real
difficulty. A key win was Maentz
and Tenny's 6-0, 6-1 number two

Cleveland, after losing 11 in a

also five games back of Detroit.
The Twins made it by beating

The Indians, trailing 7-4 after
the Yankees had unloaded home

for Michigan, the directors ac-

Two pieces of good news for the
Wolverines are the dropping of*
the 115 and 191-1b weight classes
in varsity wrestling and granting*
of an extra year of football eligi-

The directors agreed to the
wrestling coaches' suggestion to
drop the two weights after a one
year trial because, explained com-
missioner elect Bill Reed, "the
feeling was that these are not

popular events -'you just can't
find enough kids at those weights."
Brown, a junior from Kalama-
