Whiffs Twelve
Fisher walked three and whiffed
twelve, his best strikeout perform-
ance of the year. His previous high
was ten, recorded against North-
western last Saturday.
Johnson put a damper on the
victory celebration in the second
game when he bested Mike Joyce,
to hand the Michigan hurler his
first Big Ten defeat. Joyce had
won five consecutive conference'
games before yesterday.
Not Himself

Michigan spoiled Johnson's shut-
out in the seventh inning on a
single, a walk to Dick DeLamiel-
leure and a wild throw by second
baseman Matt trying to complete
a double play on Merullo's
grounder.
Although the Wolverines fin-
ished one-half game behind
Minnesota in the Games Behind
column, their, conference - leading
percentage of .833 is .033 points
better than the Gophers' .800.
The Wolverines finished with a

12-3 log.

The one inning he pitched in,
relief against Purdue Friday may
have taken the edge off the sopho-
more right hander, because yes-
terday he just didn't seem him-
self. For the first time in five Big
Ten starts he needed relief.
Joyce pitched five innings and
gave up four runs on seven hits
before being relieved by senior
lefthander Joe Brefeld. Brefeld
shut the door on the Illini in his
one inning stint.
Johnson recorded his sixth vic-
tory in eight decisions on the;
season for Illinois.
Jump on Joyce
The Illini sewed up the ball game
in the third inning when they
jumped on Joyce for three runs
and four hits.
Provenzano started the fireworks
with a triple to the fencein left
center, and scored when Etchel-
burged's bouncer was short-hopped
by Merullo.
Double Steal
After Joyce walked first base-
man Jerry, Illinois executed a
double steal to' put runners on
second and third. Right fielder
But Felichio sent both Echelber-
ger and Renner home with his
first hit of the afternoon, a line
drive single over Freehan's head
into right field.
Left fielder' Max Crotfer fol-
lowed with another single that
went for naught when Joyce got
Johnson to ground into an inning-
ending around the horn, double
play.
In the fifth inning Illinois got
another run on a walk to Proven-
zan'o, a stolen base, and Felichio's
double..

BALTIMORE (JP)-Carry Back,v
the most popular colt since grey-
coated Native Dancer thrilled the
fans eight years ago, came from
behind with his characteristic late
rush yesterday and won the 85th
running of the $178,700 Preakness
Stakes at Pimlico.
With Jockey Johnny Sellers
astride the Kentucky Derby win-
ner, Carry Back zoomed up from
seventh place in the field of nine
three-year-olds and gave the same
heart-throbbing finish he provid-
ed at Louisville two weeks ago.
Blanks Foe
The Ann Arbor Rugby Club
wound up a perfect 9-0 season
yesterday by blanking St. Louis
University's Club 45-0.
John Niehuss led the fifth spring
victory with 18 points coming on
nine conversions after tries were
scored (smiilar to touchdowns in
football).
Ron Reosti hac nine points on
three tires, Tom Southwell chalked'
up six, while Harry Newman,
Bruce Thompson, Whata Wimlata,
and Terry Robinson each scored
three points.

Speedy Trial
INDIANAPOLIS ()-Lloyd
Ruby, seventh last year as a rookie
in the 500-mile race, yesterday
cranked the third-fastest quali-
fying run in Indianapolis Motor
Speedway history at an average
speed of 146.909 mph for 10 miles.
Only faster 4-la, runs ever made
at the Speedway were Jim Hurtu-
bise's fantastic 149.056 last year
and Eddie Sach's pole-winning
147.481 a week ago.
With one more qualifying ses-
sion left today for the golden
anniversary race May 30, the field
was filled with a record average
speed (145.265) for the 33 cars
tentatively in the lineup compared
to last year's record 144.070.
Eight cars qualified yesterday,
shoving two of the 27 earlier but
slower qualifiers out of the race.
A driver will have to beat 143.672
today to make the race.

CHAMPAIGN-Now that it's
settled that Michigan will be rep-
resenting the Big Ten in the mid-
eastern NCAA playoffs, the only
question that remains is who will
the opponents be and where will
they be played?
Western Michigan, as chain-
pion of the Mid-American Con-
ference, will be one of the teams
along with the Missouri Valley
Conference winner, Cincinnati.
The fourth club will be chosen at
large by the NCAA selection com-
mittee, and the team most like-
ly to succeed is Detroit, two-time
victor over the Wolverines.
Tiger Stadium?
As far as the site of the play-
offs is concerned, it appears now
that it will either be Tiger Sta-
dium in Detroit, or Michigan's own
Ferry Field.

JACK NICKLAUS
.. Big Ten golf champ
Golf Roundup

By JIM BERGER
Special To The Daily
BLOOMINGTON--Jack Nicklaus
and his Ohio State team stole the
show here yesterday by taking
first places in the 42nd Annual
Big Ten Golf championships on
the Indiana University course.
Nicklaus, the individual champ
with 68-70-72-73-283, and team-
mate Mike Podolski with 77-76-
70-76-1299, provided the one-two
punch that swept the Buckeyes to
victory. Podolksi was third in-
divilually, equalling his last year's
finish.
Minnesota, led by runnerup
Rolf Deming, was a distant 15
strokes behind the new champs,
but took second honors with 1536.
Michigan State, backed by a solid
team effort, was third with 1538;
Purdue, led by Jerry Jackson and
Mark Darnell- was fourth with
1544; Indiana, sparked by fourth
placer Jim Vitou, had 1555, and
Iowa was sixth with 1565.
Michigan Seventh
Then came Michigan with 1575;
Northwestern, 1578, and Wisconsin
and Illinois with 1597 and 1636
respectively.
Dick Youngberg, who ended up
in a sixth place tie in the indivi-
dual race, was .low man for the
disappointing Wolverines. Bill
Newcomb and Mike Goode took
second honors with 315, Joe Bris-
son had 317, and Tom Ahern and
Chuck Newton had 321, with one
of their scores not counting. Only
five of the six scores were counted
in the meet.
Michigan, in fourth place 15
strokes off the pace at the start
of yesterday's action, began where
they left off Friday afternoon. The
collapse was a team effort and all
six men contributed.
Youngberg Skies
Youngberg, with a 77-82 yes-
terday, fell apart after his 73-74

I?

on opening day. Brisson, fifth last
year in the Conference, recovered
insignificantly over Friday's score
of two 80's, firing 79-78.
Brisson's showing is not really
that surprising when his season's
record is observed. He shot in tne
80's on several occasions and on
his good day against Northwestern,
he still wasn't hitting his shots
the way he wanted.
Michigan Golf Coach Bert Kat-
zenmeyer puts his finger on Bris-
son's problem. "Joe has been in
a spring slump. He hasn't been
hitting the ball right all year, and
it showed up in these two days."
Newcomb, after a good morning
round of 75, blew to an 82 in the
final 18.
Goode Shoots 80
Goode had an 80 in yesterday's
first round. It was the second time
in two days he was over 79, some-

thing he had not done previously
this spring. In the second round,
Goode actually came back for a
78.
Newton was the weakest man
yesterday. He had 82-85 after Fri-
day's fine pair of 77's.
Ahern had a different kind of
problem, but it was just as costly.
He simply couldn't play Indiana's
wooded back nine. His four front
nine scores were 37-37-38-38, while
his back nine totals were 41-43-
44-43.
Katzenmeyer Unhappy
Naturally, Katzenmeyer was dis-
appointed with the high scores
and the low finish. "The boy's feel
as sad and as disappointed as I
do," said the feary Coach.
"It was not a good effort. We
only played one respectable 18-
hole round of golf. Not good, but
respectable." However, the 380

first round total was good enough
for a slim two stroke lead over
Michigan State, which quickly
evaporated.
This meet unhappily concluded
what had otherwise been a suc-
cessful (7-0) golf season for Mich-
igan, and the only thing the Wol-
verines can do is, "wait 'till next
year," when four veterans will
return.
