Minnesota Power Prevails
It was the Minnesota power
again yesterday as it was on.Fri-
day when they slugged Michigan
State, as the Michigan pitchers
collapsed under the vicious 26-hit
Denny McGinn was the first
Wolverine pitcher to feel the
wrath of the Minnesota bats. The
Gophers jumped on him for three
runs in the second inning of the
first game to wipe out an early
Michigan two-run lead.
The big hit of the inning was
a wind blown triple off the bat
of Minnesota's starting pitcher
Howard Nathe with the bases
Michigan Led Early
The Wolverines had taken the
lead in the top of the inning when
Joe Merullo and McGinn rapped
successive doubles after two were
out, and centerfielder Ed Hood
slashed a single.
However, Minnesota made:no
mistake about winning the game
as they continued their run spree
with three in the fourth, a single-
ton in the fifth and three more in
the sixth to ice the game.
Dave Brown hit a bases empty
homer for the Wolverines in the
sixth to finish the Michigan scor-
ing off Nathe.
In the second game the Wol-
verines again jumped off to an
early lead on the strength of
Barry Marshall's long home run
in the second.'
But again the Gophers fought
into a commanding lead, this time
off Al Koch.
Minnesota picked up two runs
in their half of the second, and
then put the game away with a
four-run burst in the third. The
four runs came on only three hits.
Neither Nick Liakonis nor Gor-
don Rinckey had much luck either
with the heavy hitting Gophers.
Liakonis pitched only two thirds
of an inning and gave up three
hits and two runs while Rinckey
was touched for four hits and

third inning stint.
The doubleheader, played on
Minnesota's Delta Field, saw the
Minnesota power and the wind
put five balls out of the park.

a two-team total of seven. They
also added nine doubles and a
triple for one of the biggest slug-
ging games of the year.

In a match abbreviated by pour-
ing rains and high winds, the
Michigan golf team sloshed to its
first victory of the season with
an easy 18-6 win over the Univer-
sity of Detroit here yesterday.
A combination of inclement
weather and impending darkness
forced the two coaches to call the
meet to a halt at the end of
eighteen holes. The fain and wind
,had so slowed the golfers down
on their first round that they
would have been unable to finish1
a full second eighteen in the time
Scores sky -rocketed on the
windy, rain-soaked 6,400 Univer-
sity layout. Wolverine Larry White
grabbed off medalist honors with
a 39-39-78, six over par.
He handily defeated Bill Sample
3-0 in the number two match as
Sample shot a 41-47-88.
Paul Weyand missed tying White
by two strokes when he incurred
a two-stroke penalty on the last
hole. In an unfortunate lapse of
memory he picked up his ball on
the eighteenth green and neglected
to hole out a two-inch puts
Weyand defeated his opponent,
John Handloser, however, with a
39-41-80 to Handloser's 44-48--
92 for a 3-0 win in the number six
Also hard on White's heels for
the medalist honors were hi's
teammates Dick Youngberg and
John Everhardus, each with a 79.
Youngberg, with his 37-42-79,
won the number one match 21/2-1/2
over Mike Conroy, medalist for
Detroit at 41-42-93. Everhardus
blanked John Cluskey with a 38-
41-79 to Cluskey's 44-43-87 in
the number four match.
Sophomore Tom Ahern downed
Edward Stevens in the number
three match 2-1 as he carded a
42-43--85 to Stevens' 45-42-87.
Titan Carl Castle defeated Cliff
Marks 2-1 with a 45-40-85 to
Marks' 44-44-8 while Bob Gus-
tine of Michigan settled for a tie
with Detroiter Jim Hogan. Gus-
tine had a 45-47--92 and Hogan a
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer was
somewhat disappointed with yes-
terday's scores on the whole.
"We're going to have to play in
more of this weather before the
season is over," he said. "We'd bet-
ter get used to it, and fast."

Two goals are spurring the Uni-
versity Sailing Team efforts on
Two elimination, heats must be
won to reach the Collegiate Na-
tional Competition, June 13-17 at
the Crescent Sail Yacht Club in,
Grosse Pointe. Also, University
skippers must win the Collegiate
monotype eliminations in Wiscon-
sin to reach the Olympic elimina-
tions at Marblehead, Mass. in July.
The first eliminations for the
collegiate title were this weekend
in Detroit where skippers Otto
Scherer and Timme Schneider
competed against Detroit, Wayne,
Michigan State and Oberlin teams.
Three Schools Represent
From there, three schools will
represent the Michigan area in a
tri-area semi-final at the Detroit
Yacht Club the following weekend.
Three teams from the Indiana-
Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan
areas will then compete for the
Mid-Western Title. Michigan is
the smallest of the three areas.
Up to two years ago Michigan
was the major winner of this title.
The team goes into the elimina-
tions with a 2-1 won-loss record.
One of those wins was the Anna-
polis Meet, the first time a mid-'
western school has taken the
Scherer Is Crew
Otto Scherer, the "A" division
skipper, is the standing crew for
Hank Carwartha, a multi winnerI
of the national Lightening Cham-
pionship. Schere is also a winner
in his own right in the Penguin
Crescent Sail, site of the title
regatta, is Scherer's home club, so
he will be in his own waters.
Miss Schneider, "B" division
skipper, took second in the Raven
Nationals last year.
Scherer and John Goldsmith will
represent the team at the Col-
legiate eliminations for the Olym-
pics in Wisconsin, May 13 and
All the Olymipic eliminations will
be monotype. This type of sailing
takes both skill and stamina as
each man must handle the boat
completely by himself.
