the .500 level, but it was smooth
sailing the rest of the way, as they
took their last four.
Big Surprise
The big surprise of the trip was
the stick work of Joe Merullo, who
started the week as a reserve
catcher and finished it as the
regular third baseman.
Murello went to the plate 35
times and connected for hits 13 of
those times, including a brace of
homers.
But his .371 average isn't enough
to lead the Wolverine sluggers.
Wilber Franklin holds down that
honor as he has lashed out a .436
mark for top average and has
batted in 12 runs to lead the club
in that department.
All eight of the regulars came
back carrying averages over .300.
The heavy-hitting Wolverines have
registered eight homers, eight
triples and 24 doubles in their 11
slugfests.
The biggest single game for the,

Wolverine batters came against
Monthan Air Base in the second
outing of the trip.. In that 20-7
romp, Michigan scored in every
inning but two and racked up 18
hits.
Merullo, Barry Marshall and
shortstop Gene Struczewski each
chipped in with three hits in this
contest.
Pitchers Shape Up
While the hitters were having
their day, the pitchers, led by Den-
nis McGinn were quickly rounding
into shape.
McGinn tossed the only two
complete games for the Wolver-
ines.
One was a sparkling four-hit
performance in Michigan's 11-2
romp over Wyoming.
Al Koch also picked up a pair
of wins for Coach Don Lund.
Michigan's home opener will be
against Wayne State next 'ues-
day.

RELAY WINNERS--Michigan's Ergas Leps takes the baton from
Tony Seth and goes on to anchor the two-mile relay win in the
Texas Relays.

By DAVE ANDREWS
Michigan's high-flying t r a c k
team limped home from a succes-
sful spring trip Sunday.
In spite of all the aches and
pains they picked up, they re-
turned with smiles on their faces.

meet of the year against some of

put on a tremendous show to out-

team in the meet ran a poor

However, last Saturday Michi-

aged to capture a first in the
two-mile relay, a second by McRae
in the high hurdles, a third by
Steve Williams. in the high jump,
and a second by Bird in the broad
jump.
The sprint medley team com-
posed of Ergas Leps, Dick Cephas,
Tony Seth and Gibson finished
the Michigan scoring with a sec-
ond.
-Probably the outstanding per-
formances. of the trip were the
sparkling races run by McRae and
Leps at Abilene. McRae, perform-
ing for the first time in an out-
door meet in his Michigan track
career, skimmed the hurdles in
the fine time of 0:14.2 as he upset
Christian's highly touted Cal
Cooley.
Fastest Ever
Leps came through with a fast
4:13.9 clocking in the mile to

easily outdistance his opposition.
Both McRae's and Leps' times
were the fastest ever recorded on
the Abeline track,
Robinson turned #In a double
win as he captured the century
and the 220-yard dashes. Seth
won the 880. Bird and Williams
also won their events.
Best Showing
The best showing at Austin was
put on by the two-mile relay team
composed of Earl Deardorff, Dave
Martin, Seth and Leps as they
outran Kansas on the windy track.
Leps, anchoring the team,
sprinted past Kansas' Bob Tague

Michigan's swimmers returned
home yesterday minus their NCAA
championship, with a handfull of
individual honors in both the
NCAA and AAU meets, and with
enthusiasm for America's swim

Michigan Coach Gus Stager,
scheduled to lead the American
Olympians, saw his favored Wol-

attached, junior diver Joe Ger-
lach and freshman breastroker

Six USC Wins
At Dallas USC scored six indi-
vidual victories to upset the Wol-
verines.
Meanwhile, Ron Clark was the
only victorious Wolverine, win-
ning the 200-yard breastroke in
2:17.6.

zig Big Ten champions, begins
outdoor practice this week after:
completing a week of training and
exhibition matches in Florida over
spring vacation.
The netmen face the University
of Detroit in the season's first
natch on April 21. Until then,
.oach Bill Murphy plans to stage'
ntra-squad matches to determine
eam positions.

The Bulldogs were carried by Don-
ald Dell who was second in NCAA
singles in 1959.
Murphy was pleased by the work
of sophomores Jim Tenney and
Ken Mike. Mike won the number
five singles against Yale and
looked good while playing doubles
with Jerry Dubie against Miami.
MacDonald Wins
Against Yale, a vastly improved
junior, Bruce MacDonald, a re-
serve on last year's team, won the
number six singles and teamed
with returning senior, John Wiley,
to take the number/hree doubles.
Michigan has almost two months
to prepare to defend the Big Ten
title won last spring when it stood
the conference on its ear, winning
every possible match and losing
only two sets out of 88 played. The

conference championship this year
will be decided at Northwestern,
May 19-21.
Duble To Move Up
Almost certain to'-move up to
number one singles is junior Du-
bie who won the Big 10 number
two singles crown last year.
Seniors John Wiley and Frank
Fulton are the other two returning
regulars while Mike, Tenney and
Tom Beach moved up from the
frosh.

Both Bittick and Troy equaled
their records in the. 100-yard
events in last weekend's A A U
meet and set new marks in at 200-
yards in their respective special-
ties.
The Michigan swimmers fin-
ished four points ahead of third
place Indiana.
At New Haven American swim-
mers gave every indication that
they will be ready to challenge
the Australians in Rome.
Outstanding performer in this
meet was Jeff Farrell a former
Oklahoma swimmer now in the
Navy.'
Farrell broke the two oldest
records on the books with his
timings of :48.2 for 100-yards
freestyle and 2:00.1 for 220-yards
freestyle.
Nelson By A Yard
Nelson, a freshman from South
Grand Rapids, led from the start
in the 100-yard breastroke and
defeated Fred Munsch by a yard,
setting a record of 1:02.4 in the
process.

EAST LANSING - The Michi-
gan State University Athletic:
Council today cast votes favoring
Rose Bowl football competition on
an individual basis and other post-
season sports activities.
The Council favored retention
of a clause in the Big Ten regula-
tions allowing individual schools
to accept the Rose Bowl bid al-
though the Pasadena game was re-
Jected on a Conference-wide basis.
The Council also voted against
abolishing all post-season sports
activities as recommended by a
majority of athletic directors and
faculty representatives at the last
conference business meeting in
Columbus.
The Rose Bowl matter now is
presumed dead unless some of the
anti - bowl schools reverse their
field. The resolution against other
post-season sports competition was
put through by the athletic direc-I
tors as a form of protest and is ex-
pected to be given fresh consider-I
ation this May in East Lansing.
