Michigan Splits
Trackmen Star at OSU;
Set Relays Win Mark






M' Golfers Lose to Three Foes

(Continued from Page 1)
The second man, Frank Geist,.
sprinted his two trips around the
.track in 1:53.7 and gained con-
siderably. Fred Montour, the half-
miler who only seems to be able
to come up with a good race in
the really big meets did just that
in outrunning MSU ace Bob Lake
on the third leg.
However, the duel with State,
the team that recorded the year's
best time in this event only last
week, was far from decided. Willie
Atterberry, State's great middle-
distance man, was waiting to run
the final leg. But Coach Don Can-
ham had Lepsready to test Atter-
bury. Leps not only matched
strides with him, but outran his
foe-breasting the tape in 7:36.8-
a new stadium and meet.record.
Canham Praises Leps
Coach Canham later praised
Leps' running explaining, "He was
terrific!" This obviously holds
great promise for next week when
Leps will anchor at least two
teams in the Penn Relays.
The team which won the 440
relay with Len Cercone substitut-
ing for Engel, came back later in


the afternoon to take the 880 re-
lay in 1:26.4.
Cercone had an excellent day as
he also ran his fastest 440 ever,
:48.6, to spark the mile team to
victory in the day's closing race.
This group, which also included
Gibson, Marsh Dickerson and
Tony Seth, covered the distance
in a fast 3:16.4.
Sprint Medley loses
The sprint medley of Dickerson,
Seth, John Twomey, and Don
Chalfant were the only losing
Michigan team of the day, but
that race was only decided by a
photo finish. A strong Notre Dame
crew managed to avenge its loss
in the 440 in the medley.
In individual events, Bill Hem-
merstein set, a new Michigan
freshman record in the 800 meters,
winning his heat in 1:54.8. This
gave him fifth place when all the
heat times were compared.
Les Bird only made two jumps
in the broad Jump in orderto
protect his healing leg but still
gained second place in the event.
High jumper Steve Williams
reached third place with a 6'4"
leap and shotputter Ray Locke a
fourth with a 52'1" heave to round
out the major Wolverine scoring.

OUT AT FIRST-Purdue centerfielder Chuck Holle is out on a ground ball in the first game of
yesterday's Michigan-Purdue doubleheader. Michigan first baseman Bill Roman has just taken the
throw from shortstop Gene Struczewski. Catcher Joe Murello backs up play, as Purdue coach and
umpire look on. The teams split the twin bill. Purdue won the first game, 4-2, Michigan the
second, 5-2.

A Tougher League
eeeHINGS GOT a little tougher for Michigan's baseball team this
Just as the Detroit Tigers' four-game win streak has visions of a
pennant already dancing in the eyes of long-suffering Detroiters, so
did an impressive spring training trip raise the hopes of Wolverine
diamond faithful.
When coach Don Lund's nine swept through the Southwest with
an 8-3 record .and every regular carried home a .300-plus batting
average, long-time Michigan fans harkened back to the days of 1952-
53 when Ray Fisher guided the Wolverines to two straight Conference
Anxious to see what kind of team Lund had produced in his second:
year at the helm, a goodly crowd gathered for the first home game
against Wayne State two weeks ago. And they weren't disappointed.,
Displaying all the power that had been promised of them, the Wol-
verines methodically tore up the visitors, 16-0, and a week later dupli-
cated the feat against Central Michigan, 13-4.
But the teams that visited Ann Arbor this weekend, were not
Wayne or Central Michigan!
Illinois and Purdue brought to town the brand of ball that Michi-
gan will be facing for the rest of the season-and wins didn't come
cheaply against these teams.
True enough, the Wolverines performed more than adequately
against the Illini and Boilermakers, winning two of the three games
played, but the box score totals previously run up by Michigan were
noticeable by their absence. Two come-from-behind wins by 8-5 and
5-2 margins are a far cry from the average of 10.5 runs a game that
Lund's outfit took into the weekend. And even one loss can't be
shrugged off lightly in the Big Ten.
Unpredictable spring weather has raised havoc with more than
one season in years past and one game can mean a lot when not too
many of them are played. The most recent instance of this was in
1957 when Northwestern backed into the crown after playing only
seven Conference games-and compiling a 5-2 mark.
Michigan had to content itself with second place in that campaign
as both the Wolverines and Northwestern watched the rains come
down on the last weekend of play,.killing Michigan's chances.
There has always been hope in the spring, and finishes of third,
fifth, fourth, second, sixth and seventh since the last Wolverine title
in 1953. And, in fact, the last losing season for a Michigan baseball
team dates back to 1940, but the Big Ten is too often a different matter.
When Michigan's boomig bats were all but silenced in the opener
of yesterday's doubleheader, perhaps dreaming fans were awakened.
Michigan has a strong contender, but the rest of the Conference isn't
awed by reputations built up against weak sisters.
Since Illinois traveled to Michigan State and topped the Spartans
twice yesterday, the Wolverines and Illini are currently pacing the Big
Ten pack, with 2-1 records.
Assets .. .
THE WEEKEND showed that if coach Lund's charges expect to re-
tain their position, they will have to depend upon a fairly solid in-
field, keyed around the increasingly reliable stick and glove work of
second-sacker Barry Marshall, and a hitting outfield that has sopho-
more Ed Hood making most of the defensive gems.
And If you're of a superstitious nature, you'd have Dick Syring
behind the plate for every game. The loss to Purdue in the opener was
the first game in which Lund had juggled his lineup, keeping Syring
who was slightly injured Friday for pinch hitting duties. In the Friday
game with Illinois, Syring demonstrated a rifle arm as he cut down
three prospective base thieves at second base.
Pitching has been adequate, but not spectacular. The most success-
ful chuckers have been Al Koch and Dennis McGinn. But while McGinn
gave up but two runs in the nightcap win, both came as a result of wild
pitches he uncorked.
This team has a lot of potential, but it could be like the 1957
aggregation. In that year, Coach Fisher said, "Any time we haven't
made seven runs, we haven't won."
The Wolverines didn't get seven runs in every game that season-
and they came in second.
This year's team could turn the trick, but It had better remember
that things get tougher from here on in.

Dennis McGinn pitched Michi-
gan to a face-saving 5-2 victory
over Purdue yesterday in the
nightcap of a doubleheader after
the heavy hitting Wolverines had
succumbed meekly 4-2 to Pur-
due's Jack Helmkamp in the open-
The Wolverines, who Saturday
had bombed out Illinoiss' fabled
Terry Gellinger in the fifth in-
ning, were held to five hits in the
opener by Helmkamp.
Pitches Twice
McGinn, pitching in his second
game in two days, also tossed a
five hitter. The second game was
an abbreviated seven inning af-
fair which is standard in Big Ten
The split left the Wolverines
with a 2-1 record and a tie for
first place with Illinois in the Big
Ten as Michigan State dropped a
doubleheader to the Illini, 2-1,
and 15-1. The other six teams
don't begin conference play until
next weekend.
In the second game while Mc-
Ginn was limiting Purdue to only
two unearned runs; the Wolver-
ine hitters were banging out seven
safeties, including Dave Brown's
fifth home run of the season.
Brown's solo shot came in the
third inning and moved Michigan
into a 3-1 lead.
Score Twice In Fourth
Michigan picked up two more
runs in the fourth. After Ed Hood

bounced out to shortstop, Gene
Struzewski was nicked in the hip
by a pitch. Bill Roman sent Struz-
ewski to third with a single to
right and after Roman stole sec-
ond they both scored on Wilbur
Franklin's single to left corner.
Michigan had started the scor-
ing in the first inning when Hood
walked and advanced to second
on a sacrifice by Struzewski. Stru-
zewski was safe at first when
Mike Birch, Purdue's starting pit-
cher, threw high to second trying
to force Hood. Roman then
bounced a grounder to second
which was booted to load up the
bases. Hood and Struzewski then
rode home on Barry Marshall's
single to left.
Brown Errs
Purdue got their first run in the
second when catcher Joe McCabe
doubled, and went to third when
Brown let the ball get by him in
left field. He "scored on a wild
pitch by McGinn.
In the fourth, Purdue's Bernie
Allen singled, went to second on
a wild pitch and scored on a
single by second baseman Bill
In the first game Helmkamp
had it almost as easy as McGinn.
The Wolverines couldn't get a
runner to third until the ninth
when they scored their only two
In that ninth, behind 4-0,
Michigan's Dave Brown started

the fireworks with a single to
center. Brown moved to third
when second baseman Winter
booted Franklin's hot shot and
scored on a wild pitch by Helm-
kamp. Joe Merullo then scored
Franklin with the games' only
extra base hit, a double to the
fence in- left center.
Purdue's center fielder Charles
Holle trying to grab Merullo's
drive, crashed through tht picket
fence. The ball ricocheted off his
glove, however, and fell safely.
Mogk In Trouble
Michigan's starting pitcher Jack
Mogk had gotten into trouble in
the first inning when he walked
leadoff man Gerry Zuback. First
baseman Bill Wrona followed with
a single to right sending Zubeck
to second. Allen kept the rally
alive when he singled to right
scoring Zubeck.
After McCabe rolled out third
to first Winter brought in tht
second run of the inning with a
sacrifice fly to Brown in left.
Purdue picked up their third
run in the fourth when McCabe
was safe on an error by Michigan
third baseman George Fead, and
after a sacrifice by Winter, scored
on a single by Holle.
In the fifth Mogk walked Helm-
kamp to st'art the inning and he
came around to score on\ singles
by Zuback and Wrona to give
Purdue the final run.
Tomorrow the Wolverines, will
meet Detroit on Ferry Field at
3:30. Dave DeBusschere, Detroit's
All-American in basketball will
probably be on the hill for the
'Marks Fall'

EUGENE, ORE. )M - Oregon's
Dyrol Burleson yesterday sped
over the mile in 3:58.6, the fast-
est ever run by an American.
The best previous time by an
American was by Don Bowden of
California. In June 1957, he tour-
ed the mile in 3:58.7 at Stockton,

Thomas bettered the NCAA high
jump record and equalled the
American mark with a leap of
7'" yesterday.

Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS - The golf was as,
fine as the weather yesterday as a
red hot battle for medalist honors
highlighted Michigan's quadran-
gular meet with Purdue, Indiana
and host Ohio State.
Ohio's Jack Nicklaus outlasted
three others for individual honors
in firing 75-71-146. He lead his
team to a 22-14 win over the Wol-
verines. The meet. was scored in
dual meet fashion rather than as
a quadrangular event.
Mike Podolsk also of Ohio was
one of the three runner-ups with
69-78-147. His first 18, fashioned
on nines of 33-36, was the best
round of a hot scoring day on the
"tough" Scarlet course.
Konsek, Darnell Follow
John Konsek and Mark Dar-
nell of Purdue also had 147's to
lead the Boilermakers to a 26-10
trouncing of Michigan. Konsek,
defending Big Ten champ, played
with Nicklaus in their first and,
long awaited meeting, and almost
caught him. Darnell, on the other
hand, is only a sophomore, and his
score was a bit surprising.
Indiana used team balance, its
main forte, to wallop Michigan,
Ohio State, Indiana and Purdue
all tied at 18-18 in their matches.
Medal Score To Count
In terms of the Conference
meet, however, it's not the match
score that counts, but the medal.
In figuring these totals, Michigan
fared much better than the meet
scores indicate. Purdue had a five
-man total of 767 (only five count
in the Conference meet), Indiana
769, Michigan 795 and Ohio State
was last with 812.
Joe Brisson, playing with Nick-
laus, Konsek and Ron Royer, was
low for Michigan with 76-78--154.
Captain Larry Markman was the
only other Wolverine under 160
with 79-77-156. He also was the
only player for Michigan that shot
lower in the afternoon round.
'We Weren't Ready'
"We weren't ready for this meet,
physically, or otherwise," said
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer. "We
tired in the afternoon, and our
scores show it."
The lack of a trip down South
this spring may have hampered
Michigan in shaping up for this
meet. Katzenmeyer admitted he
was a little disappointed, but saw
encouraging signs in the medal
scores of the teams. He was, how-
ever, worried, about Dick Young-
berg's pair of 83's.
"Dick was not playing good all

week," said Katzenmeyer, "and I
thought he would snap out of it.
.But, he didn't."
Katzenmeyer called the OSU
course a fine one, ". . . equal to
This meet affirmed many con-
victions that Paurdue and Indiana
would be dueling for the Confer-
ence Crown .this year; with Michi-
gan and Ohio State darkhorses
along with Iowa and Michigan
As Katzenmeyer said, Michigan
just needs more work, and "....
more playing." Ohio State showed
that it needs some more players to
go along with individual title con-
tender Nicklaus, and Podolski.
Indiana, as expected, showed all-
around balance, especially through

Gl'inka Stars in Scrimniage;
Blues Defeat, Whites, 54-0

Coach Bump Elliott held the
second scrimmage of spring foot-
ball practice yesterday afternoon
with the white team defeating the
Blues, 54-0.
Chief architect in the White
victory was freshman quarterback
Dave Glinka.
Glinka set up two scores and
passed for two others. His first
scoring target was freshman half-
back Jim Ward on a 40-yd. pass
and run. His second was to end
Bob Brown for eight yards.
Ward had also scored earlier as
he slanted over tackle for eight
Freshman quarterback Bob

Chandler started off the White
scoring with a pass to Brown that
covered 45, yards. Another fresh-
man, Mike Westley, figured in the
most exciting play of the day. He
lofted a long pass to end Bill
Hornbeck who took it into the end
zone to complete a 60-yd. pass
and run play.
There were two other freshmen
who figured in the scoring. Full-
back Joe O'Donnell smashed over
from the one-foot line to give the
Whites their fourth touchdown.
The fifth was scored by halfback
Dave Raimey who ran into paydirt
from six yards out.

the first four men, and Purdue,
tough as usual, still lacks con-
Michigan will have a chance to
revenge two of the defeats when
OSU and Purdue visit Ann Arbor
