Lefty Allows EightScattered Safeties;
Franklin Paces Hitters with 2 RBI's


Accordingly he stayed Just behind Georgetown's Bob Vinton until
the final 200 yards at which point he made his customary bid and
won by 15-yards, going away, in a total time of 9:56.8.
Villanova Holds Record
The record at the meet which was set by Villanova with the help
of greats Charlie Jenkins and Ron Delany is only one half-second
faster than this time.
Two sprint relay teams in Maize and Blue also set the gallery
buzzing with their performances. Dick Cephas, Bennie McRae, and
Tom Robinson joined with Jeff Engel and Len Cercone in the 440
and 880 events respectively. They recorded the fastest qualifying times
of the day in those events and set Michigan varsity records in both.
Not Noted As Contenders
Not even rated as contenders in the pre-meet selections, they
bettered favored San Jose State's times by a tenth of a second in
the shorter race and by three tenths in the longer one. Barring a
repeat of the injury which Robinson suffered here last year, their
performance yesterday leaves great hope for today's finals.
The other Michigan entry yesterday was McRae in the heats of
the 120-yd. high hurdles. He won his prelim in :14.6-two tenths of
a second slower than Maryland's William Johnston's top time.
May Not Run In Finals
Whether McRae will run in the final today will depend on how
the two Wolverine sprint teams fared last night in the draw for lanes
for their finals this afternoon. Coach Canham decided that, "If we
aren't lucky in this placing, we'll run Ben in the hurdles. But if we
draw a good lane, we're not taking any chances on hisnot being in
best possible shape."
In a very exhuberant mood, Canham estimated, "That time of
1:27.1 in the 880 relay is thought to be one of the fastest in the coun-
try this year."
Commenting on the distance medley race with an eye on this
afternoon's action he praised the team enthusiastically-particularly#
Martin and Leps. "Ergas could have run that last mile faster," he
estimated, "but I wanted him to save himself for those other races.-
He's got a lot more running to do this weekend and we don't want
him to be too tired.''

FIRST WIN-Bob Marcereau, junior lefthander, responded with
an eight-hit shutout of Iowa yesterday in his first Big Ten start
of the year. The stubby southpaw gave up only one walk en route
to his first Big Ten shutout. Until yesterday he had pitched only
15 innings and had no record.

Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY-Michigan, behind,
the gritty eight hit pitching of
little Bob Marcereau, and the
timely hitting of Gene Struczew-
ski and Wil Franklin, racked up a
6-0 shutout victory over Iowa in
the opening game of a three-game
weekend road trip played in dark,
threatening weather..
This afternoon the Wolverines
take on the defending Conference
champion, Minnesota, in a twin
bill with Coach Don Lund sending
his two unbeaten righthanders -
Denny McGinn and Al Koch-to
the hill to face the powerful Go-
Yesterday Minnesota made
Michigan State its 13th straight
victim as they pounded out 20 base
hits, including three home runs,
as theynclobbered thehSpartans,
Yields One Walk
Marcereau, who has been trou-
bled by control troubles earlier
this spring yielded only one walk
while fanning seven in route to his
first win of the year.
He even had ahand in the
Michigan scoring as he sacrificed
Joe Merullo to second after Merul-
lo had singled to open the inning.
Then after Ed Hood flied to cen-
ter, Struczewski collected the first
of his two hits, a line single to left
to chase home the first Wolverine
This proved to be enough for the
win, but Michigan picked up two
more in the fifth on Hood's single
and Struczewski's second clutch
hit, a double to the fence in left.
Merullo Doubles
Merullo doubled to open the In-
ning and Marcereau fanned. Then
came the hits by Hood and Struc-
zewski, but the budding Wolverine
rally was snapped off by a brilliant
stab of Bill Roman's vicious liner
by Hawkeye second baseman Mike
Bougdanos, who caught Struczew-
ski off second for the double play.
Michigan picked up another
marker in the sixth on hits by
Brown and Franklin, and then
finished the scoring in the eighth
with two more tallies.
In that weird inning, Roman
singled leading off and stole second
base. After Brown filed deep to
left, Franklin again came through

with a run scoring single to right.
Then Franklin stole second base,
and when Iowa's third baseman
hurried hi$ throw to first base on
Marshall's bouncer, Franklin came
in with what proved to be Michi-
gan's final run.
Inning Not Over
However the inning was not over
as Marshall stole second for the
third Michigan theft of the key-
stone sack in the inning and Syr-
ing walked. But an infield ground-
er by Merullo forced Marshall at
third and Marcereau fanned to
end the threat.
Marcereau, although he gave up
eight hits including a triple and
three doubles, was only in trouble
once. That came in the seventh as
the Hawkeyes managed to get two
hits in an inning for the only time
in the game.
Second Double
After an infield out Rudeen
slashed his second double of the
game and catcher Gerald Mauren
lined a single to center, but a fine
fielding play by Hood held Rudeen.
at third and Marcereau retired the
next two Iowa hitters on strikes to
end the threat and preserve his
shutout. .

then has been the leading shot'
putter for Michigan this season.
No Pole Vaulter
Coach Don Canham has high
hopes for first - year man Steve

Champion Illinois. It is hoped

The team of John Twomey,
Quint Sterling, Larry Beamer (or
Don Chalfant) and Jack Steffes
will probably compete in the 440-
yd. relay. As a possible alterna-
tive,' they may run in the longer,
more grueling one-mile relay.
The hop,step and jump, an un-
usual event, and not often in-
cluded in regular American com-
petition, today will feature Steffes,
along with freshmen Dick Thel-
well and Doug Niles. This same
trio will also vie for honors in the
broad jump.
Niles will also be entered in the
100 and 200-yard dashes. He and
teammate Ken Nicholson will pro-
vide tough competition in these
events. Quint Sterling will repre-
sent the varsity.
Cephaus, McRae Absent
The 220-yd. low hurdles will in-
clude Ron Trowbridge and Chal-
fant along with freshman Chuck
Peltz. This event is usually domi-
nated by Bennie McRae and Dick
Cephas, but today they are in
Philadelphia representing Michi-
gan in the Penn Relays.
Bill Hammerstein carries Michi-
gan's hopes in the 880-yd. run.
Hammerstein set a new Michigan
freshman record in the 800 meters
last week at the Ohio Relays. He
ran his heat in the excellent time
of 1:54.8 which he is hoping to
equal today.

COLUMBUS - Under menacing
skies, Michigan's tennis team
opened its season in convincing
style in a quadrangular meet with
Ohio State, Ohio Wesleyan, and
Indiana yesterday at Columbus.
The Wolverines had swept all
six singles matches and one
doubles match from Ohio Wes-
leyan before the proceedings were,
halted by rain. At that time, the'
other two Michigan doubles teams

This is especially encouraging
since Ohio Wesleyan has beaten
Big Ten rival Ohio State 7-2
earlier in the season. Even more
encouraging was the work of
sophomores Jim Tenney and Ken
Mike who won each of their
singles matches for a combined
total of 20-4.
Matches were scored in the
manner of professional sets in
which 10 games are required to
win instead of the usual six. The
winner must win by at least two
Gerry Dubie, a junior, defeated
Bill Poist of Wesleyan 10-6 in
number one singles.
Senior Frank Fulton, a three
year veteran, defeated Dick Gor-

Captain John Wiley crushed
Don Pierce of Wesleyan 10-1 at
the number three singles spots.

Wiley and Fulton, last years
Big Ten number 'three doubles
champions, combined their tal-
ents to take the measure of Don
Jones and Warrell Lauer in num-
ber two doubles by the score of
Sophomore Jim Tenney wallop-
ed Jones 10-1 in number four

pearance. Tenney is from Toledo.
The other starting sophomore,
Ken Mike of Detroit, won the
number five singles defeating
Lauer 10-3.
Junior Bruce MacDonald com-
pleted the clean sweep of the
singles matches as he took Steve
