Vic Power scored the first run
and drove in the winner with a
12th inning single yesterday as
Cleveland ended Detroit's unbeat-
en streak at five games 2-1.
Power's two-out single in the
12th scored pinch runner Carroll
Hardy from second. Power had
singled and scored Cleveland's
sixth inning run on a single by
Johnny Temple.
Despite the loss, the Tigers held
first place in the American League
when the runner-up New York
Yankees lost again to young Jerry
Casale and the Boston Red Sox,
7-5. Jim Gentile's second homer
gave Baltimore an 11-10 victory
over Washington.
Chicago beat Kansas City in the
only night game in the AL, 8-0;
In the only National League day
game, Don Drysdale's fourth
straight complete game was a
four-hitter in an 8-1 Los Angeles
victory over the Chicago Cubs.
The St. Louis Cardinals, scoring
all their runs in the first inning,
knocked San Francisco out of a
tie with rain-idled Pittsburgh for
the National League lead by beat-
ing the Giants 4-0 last night. Mil-
waukee defeated Cincinnati 4-3 on
Del Crandall's 11th-inning home
run and the four-hit pitching of
Warren Spahn.
Rookie Wynn Hawkins, with
12th-inning help from Jim Perry,

gained his first Major League vic-
tory for the Indians. Dick Sisler
lost it in relief after Hawkins and
Detroit's Jim Bunning dueled for
10 innings. Detroit scored in the
seventh without a hit on a walk,
two infield outs and a throwing
'error by third baseman Bubba
Phillips.
Vic Wertz drove in three runs
with a bases-loaded single and
sacrifice fly and Ed Sadowski
hammered his first Major League
homer for Boston. Casale; who
beat New York on a five-hitter
last week, needed four strong re-
lief innings from Tom Brewer this
time.

Rookie John Gabler was the
loser for the Yanks, who wasted
a four RBI day by Yogi Berra.
Berra had a single, double and
homer, and Bill Skowron;a double
and home run for New York.
Gentile hit his game-winning
homer off the Senator's Camilo
Pascual in the eighth after Balti-
more blew a 5-0 lead and fell be-
hind 9-8 on Earl Battey's grand
slam home run in the sixth. Har-
mon Killebrew, Dan Dobbek and
Jim Lemon also homered for

TOP MAN-Gerry Dubie, following in the traditions set by
ex-Michigan greats Barry MacKay and Jon Erickson, has taken

doubles.

SUCCEEDS MacKAY, ERICKSEN:
Dubie Follows'M' Fine Tennis Tradition

ENTER and WIN
Michigan Union Creative Arts Festival
PHOTO CONTEST
Over $200 in prizes

By FRED STEINHARDT
In recent years, Michigan's ten-
nis team has been blessed with
superior talent.
This has been especially evident
at the number one singles posi-
tion, for as in other sports, the
success of, an entire team and
the team's top player often go
hand in hand.
Barry MacKay, number one
from 1955-57, guided the Wolver-
ines to three consecutive Big Ten
titles as he won three straight
singles crowns. Jon Erickson led
the team to a second place finish
in 1958 and was the key man of
last season's team which -took
every possible conference title and
won an unprecedented 66 out of
68 championship sets played.
Second Singles
Playing for Michigan at number
two singles on the 1959 squad was
a blond, stocky sophomore, Gerry
Dubie. This year Dubie finds him-
self heir apparent to the tradition
fashioned by the Ericksons and
MacKays of past years.
Dubie appears well-equipped to

handle his new responsibilities.
While winning the Big Ten num-
ber two singles title last year, he
exhibited a steadiness and con-
sistency beyond his years, a far
cry from many college players
who are world beaters one day
and hopeless the next.
Very Reliable
As Coach Bill Murphy says,
"Gerry is very reliable, and he
has considerable tennis experi-
ence. He can almost always be
depended upon for a good solid
game."
These qualities are no accident.
Gerry came to Ann Arbor with a
long list of credentials. He learned
and played his tennis at Ham-
tramck under one of the most
famous instructors in the country,
Miss Jean Hoxie.
He started playing seriously well
before the age of ten and had a
flock of trophies by the time he
entered high school. In high
school he won a variety of titles
such as the Western Boys Cham-
pionship and the Detroit Public
Parks doubles title, teaming with

BIGGEST TRACK MEET:
66th Annual Penn Relays

former Wolverine star Dick Pot-
ter.
He. led Hamtramck, a perennial
tennis power, to the national team
title and combined with Ray Sen-
kowski, now a Michigan freshman,
to win the National Scholastic
doubles title. In his senior year,
he was ranked number two high
school player in the nation.
Dubie is the latest in a long
line of Hamtramck-bred players
who have gone on to distinguish
themselves at Michigan. Potter,
'57, captained the 1957 team and
played doubles with MacKay.
George Korol, who played doubles
with Dubie in high school, was
also a member of the 1957 team.
Rudy Hernando, who came to
Michigan as a freshman in 1958,
is now starring for Lamar Tech
in Beaumont, Texas. He is pres-
ently ranked in the top 25 ama-
teur players in the country.
Succeeds Dubie
Successor to Dubie at Ham-
tramck and now a freshman at
Michigan is one of the most out-
standing Hamtramck alumni, Sen-
kowski. A former member of the
Open Friida
titles over these distances as the
great days of Morrow and Wood-
house are bver.
As seems to be the universal
practice in this Olympic year, there
will be special events for the post-
college-competition athletes who
are preparing for the Games.
These men would not otherwise be
eligible and their quality, an ob-
vious gate attraction, would be
missing.
The special 100 meter dash will
probably be one of the big races of
a formidable lineup of close events.
It will feature Bobby Morrow,
double Olympic champion in 1956,
as well as Dave Sime, Ire Murchi-
son and Ray Norton - all co-
world's-record holders. Most of this
same group will repeat in the 200-
meter dash.

Junior Davis Cup team and one
time National Scholastic singles
titlist, Senkowski is now playing
freshman tennis.
Thus, Dubie follows in two tra-
ditions of tennis excellence; Ham-.
tramck and Michigan.
A fine student and valedictorian
of his class, Dubie considered Yale
and Michigan. Why did he decide
on Michigan?
Best Combination
"I felt Michigan would offer
the best possible combination of
good caliber tennis and educa-
tion," says Gerry. "Besides, its
closer to home and more conven-
ient."
Gerry, who intends to become
either a coach or mathematics
teacher, is enrolled in the School
of Education. During the summer,
he assists at the school of his
former teacher, Mrs. Hoxie, and
plays in tournaments whenever he
can.
. Last year he played at Forest
Hills in the National Amateur
against ex-Davis Cup star and
current pro Alex Olmedo. He is
also a member of Sigma Phi Epsi-
lon fraternity.
Only a junior, Gerry has this
season and the next to continue
Michigan's winning tradition.

For the 66th consecutive time
thousands of track fans will pour
into Philadelphia's Franklin Field
this weekend for the biggest of
all track meets, the colorful Penn
Relays.
The two day meet, under the
direction of former Michigan track
mentor Ken Doherty, opens on
Friday afternoon and continues
with a full day of competition on
Saturday. Featuring over 4,000
athletes from all over the United
States and listing a card of 120
events, the Relays should provide
the fans with plenty of excitement,
and probably give a good indica-
tion of the United States' chances
in the upcoming Olympic Games.

The traditional part of the pro-
gram, the college relays, will fea-
ture some of the major track
powers from across the country
besides all of those in the East.
Among those added to Villanova,
Manhattan, Boston and Yale will
be San Jose State, Michigan, Mich-
igan State, Winston-Salem Teach-
ers and Duke.
Michigan and Michigan State
will renew their currently hot
rivalry in the 2-mile relay and
with Yale also entered, the event
could produce an extraordinarily
good time.
The mile relay - a classic at
this meet - will feature five-time
champion Villanova. However they
are expected to be pushed hard if
not beaten by Morgan State, Mich-
igan, or Central Michigan.
Team To Beat
San Jose State is billed as the
team most likely to. win in the
sprint relays, but whether their
great Ray Norton will be on any
of their teams is, a little bit of a
mystery. Conceivably Michigan
and Indiana could give them a lot
of trouble here.
Abilene Christian does not in-
tend to send a team to defend its
