If you've ever felt small talking
to one of Michigan's near-giant
basketball champions, you would
have felt some recompense seeing
Cazzie Russell craning his neck to
converse with Lew Alcindor.
But you felt smaller yet when
the 7-foot plus high schooler
brushed by you and you could
swear his belt buckle was shining
in your eye.
That's the way it was at the
Third Annual Basketball Banquet,
which hosted 13 of the nation's
top college basketball prospects,
along with the number one college
team of the 1964-65 season.
The Wolverine squad and coach-
ing staff received acclamation
and awards from President Har-
lan Hatcher, H. O. (Fritz) Crisler,
and other special speakers . for
their record-breaking season.
Alcindor and Dick Grubar rep-
resented New York high schools,
while Ohio contributed Tarry
Hisle of Portsmouth and Dave
McClellan of Toledo. Chicago's
Carver High, Cazzie's alma mater,
sent Ken Maxey, and from Mar-
ion, Ind., came Harold Curdy.
Jerry King, from Louisville, Ky.,
and Dennis Stuart, Pennsylvania's
player of the year, round off the
Michigan's baseball team held
an intrasquad "doubleheader"
yesterday, which was helpful but
"inconclusive" according to Coach
For the diamondmen it was
the final spring tune-up of the
season. They open their home
schedule next Tuesday, hosting
Western Michigan. The Big Ten
opener against Wisconsin is just
12 days away.
The game was the first really
organized effort by the squad since
the conclusion of the spring tour
a month ago. Bad weather of
course, has been the main factor
behind the sparsity of intrasquad
contests thus far.
Benedict divided the team into
two groups, coaching one himself
while assistant coach Dick Honig
took over the chores for the
others. The first contest was the
feature attraction, and Honig's
men capitalized on numerous
errors to take a 9-8 decision. It
was a see-saw battle though were Bob Read and Jim Lyijynen,
Benedict felt that the sides were a pair of 19-year-old sophomores
not as evenly matched as they who figure prominently in Bene-
could have been. dict's plans for the upcoming
Marlin Pemberton and Clyde season. Victimized by unearned
Barnhardt were on the mound for runs, both hurlers impressed
Benedict's team and Pemberton Benedict by showing "signs of
was tagged with the loss. A senior, improvement."
Pemberton has been somewhat of Lyijynen has been touted as a
a disappointment this season,
after compiling a 3-0 mark and

MONTREAL (AP)-Bobby Rous-
seau's tie-breaking goal in the
third period paced Montreal to a
3-1 decision over Toronto last
night, and moved the Canadiens
within one victory of a spot in the
final round of the National Hockey
Thevictory gave the Canadiens
a 3-2 margin over the Maple Leafs
in their best-of-seven games Stan-
ley Cup semifinal series.
Rousseau snapped a 1-1 dead-
lock at 7:30 of the third period
and Montreal captain Jean Beli-
veau scored an insurance goal-
into an open Toronto net-with
just 44 seconds remaining.

King: Diving Queen
Mickey.King, a junior at Mich-
igan, has taken second place in
the Women's National, AAU three
meter diving championships. Miss
King turned in her performance
Friday night in the meet being
held in Los Angeles, Calif.
The second place finish was es-
pecially impressive because it was
good enough to beat two Olympic
diving champions. Miss King will
be competing in the tower diving
event this afternoon, before re-
turning to Ann Arbor.

Nicklaus Leads Masters
AUGUSTA, Ga.-Big Jack Nick-
laus grabbed the Augusta National
monster course by the throat and
shook it to death yesterday with,
a record-tying eight-under-par 64
which threatened to wreck the
29th Masters Golf Tournament.
The superb round, featured by
300-yard drives and putts of!
phenomenal length without a:
single bogey, gave the Golden
Bear of Columbus, Ohio, a 54-
hole score of 202-five shots ahead1
of South Africa's Gary Player.
Defending champion A r n o1 d'
Palmer, the other member of the
Big Three which started the day
head-to-head, could do no better
than par 72 on the warm, wind-
less day for a 210 total, tied with
34-year-old Dan Sikes of Jack-
sonville, Fla., for third place.
No man has ever played the
first 54 holes of the Masters bet-
ter than Nicklaus did.
The previous best total for three
rounds was 205, made by Ben
Hogan in his record year of 1953
and duplicated by Palmer in win-
ning the third of his four titles

Billy Zepp and Bill Wahl work-

hurlers turned in adequate jobs,
though Wahl had control trouble.

Wheeling and Dealing
In Bubble Gum IPS
"I'll trade you two Andy Pafkos, a Billy Martin, and a Wes
Westrum for your Ted Kazanski, Bobby Malkmus, and Jose Valdi-
"No deal unless you throw in Jim Greengrass and a couple
"Look, instead of my Billy Martin I'll give you a real prize."
"I ain't even got a Spook Jacobs, but listen to this, I'll give
you a Wayne Terwilliger, just to make a deal."
"OK, it's a deal."
Remember those baseball card negotiations in the schoolyard
before the bell rang? The Rockefellers and Jay Goulds of the
future were spawned in the horse trading of the second grade set.
And remember the brittle pink slabs of chewy, but quickly
tasteless Topps bubble gum? And how you used to store your cards
in an old shoe box and count them every night before you went
to bed to see if they were all there and plan the next morning's
wheelings and dealings?
And remember the waiting lines at Joe's school store where they
sold delicacies like "dots," "Pez" (with their own dispenser), and
acidic "Lickemade," that used to make your hands sticky and cause
you grief every time the teacher called you to the blackboard. Joe
used to sell Yo Yos when they were in vogue (Duncans were better
than Cherrios because you could make them sleep longer), fake
wax mustaches, and red lips too.
But he made his big money on baseball cards. The tenseness
when you unfurled the powdery wax wrapper and turned each of
the five cards over; "Bob Will, Rocky Bridges, Lou Berberette, Clyde
McCullough, and Gene Hermanski." And the letdown when you
discovered you had doubles of every one except Bridges.
But the heartache of a double or triple was quickly forgotten
when you hit the schoolyard, heavily laden shoebox in hand, and
a fellow broker greeted you with "I'm desperate for a Gene Herman-
ski." The inner elation, and the steely outward expression slowly
fused into a hustler's half smile.
"What'll you gimme for him . . and make it good."
And the ceaseless frenzied bargaining began afresh.
Football cards could never make it big where I came from
because it was tough to handle them with mittens. How could you
trade when you couldn't leaf through your collection? Baseball was
Remember the Alley Ball
And remember the ball games we had. We city boys used to
play in the alleys-a rock for first base, a candy wrapper for second,
an old gym shoe for third, and a holey sock for the plate. We played
with a rubber ball and if you hit it into somebody's back yard you
were not only out, but you had to climb the fence and get it. This
meant a vocal lashing by mean old people who didn't like kids
climbing their fences and mutilating their roses, pansies, and sweet
And remember how the kid who's bat it was always wanted his
little brother to play, and when you objected he politely threatened
to take his bat and play elsewhere.
And remember when you were in the Cub Scouts and the den
meetings used to last nine minutes, and often less, at which point
you would adjourn and forsake the wastebasket you were making
out of a potato chip can in order to play ball.
And remember how the odd guy either played for both teams or,
if he was fat and couldn't hit, was relegated to the dubious position
of umpire, with the injunction "to call 'em fair or else."
And remember when you grew up and played league with a ball
that was really hundreds of yards of filthy adhesive tape wound
around an apple core. And remember how you always blamed it
on your mitt when you dropped a lofty fly ball. And how the sun
always got into your eyes when you misjudged a pop up, even on
a dismally cloudy day.
Heavy Bat Hypothesis
And remember how you always used to swing a bat that you
could barely even lift because you theorized that a weighty bat
socked the ball further.
And remember how you practiced a knuckle ball, screwball, palm
ball, and fork ball because fastballs and curves could be thrown by
anybody. To announce you'd mastered a knuckle ball, a pitch that
had its own folklore and mystique, won you the awe of your buddies.
And remember how you always got stomach aches, or foot
cramps, or ear aches on opening day and when the World Series
was played so you just had to stay home from school. And remember
how your mysterious ailments used to get better just in time to play
ball with the guys after dinner.
And remember when the atomic bomb was only a vague mush-
room that made a resounding CRBOOM in Yucca Flats?
