Only One Hit

fanned to start the frame, Ed

Strucewski's long fly. Bill Roman

Jim Bradshaw took over the
pitching for Marcereau in the
fourth and also held Wayne to
one hit in his three-inning stint,
as Lund spaced his pitchers in
order to be ready for the weekend
series with Michigan State.
The lone hit off Bradshaw was
a high bouncer in front of the
plate that he had to wait for to
come down. He allowed only two

walks in his most impressive
pitching performance of the year.
Second Hit
The Wolverines finally got their
second hit of the game, a leadoff
double by Roman, in the sixth
inning. Then followed a walk to
Dave Brown and a perfectly exe-

Another Shutout

Rites of Spring
SPRING HAS COME, temperatures have soared, and the quickly ap-
proaching summer is a chief issue at hand, yet for the last four
weeks groups of well-conditioned students throughout the country
clad in the athletic combat suits of fall, have moved steadily toward
the completion of their annual spring football practice.
The conclusion of this period will come for many of these teams
this weekend when they take the field for their annual Spring Games.
At East Lansing and South Bend, Michigan State and Notre Dame
alums, now in the pro ranks or just out for an afternoon's workout,
will challenge the collegians in fullfledged gridiron warfare.
At many other institutions the same pattern will be followed, but
at Michigan the Wolverines will, according to their tradition, end the
spring with the annual intra-squad game.
Some Michigan fans have requested a change to an Alumni-
Varsity game, but to no avail.
Are there good reasons why Michigan still continues to play intra-
squad games when other sehools have found the Varsity-Alumni games
to be far more popular and generally satisfying?
Michigan Coach Bump Elliott has admitted that there are certain
advantages in an alumni game.
Sitting in his office, speaking over the noise generated from the
movie projector in the adjoining room, where the rest of his staff was
screening the current squad, and in between phone calls from high
school coaches and alumni Elliott said, "There is no question that
there is great fan interest in an alumni contest. It's more like a real
game and more people will come to see it."
Reflecting for a moment he went on, "Then too, it keeps you
closer to your recent alumni, fellows like Ron Kramer and Tom
Maentz. The experience gained in an alumni game is probably greater
than that from an intra-squad game, but there are reasons why we do
continue with an intra-squad game." .
ELLIOTT WAS, HOWEVER, equally quick in pointing out why he
and his staff favor the present arrangement.
"In the first place an old timer's game disrupts the training
schedule. Getting ready for a game is like preparing for a regular
season contest rather than working on individuals for the coming
season, which is, after all our objective in spring practice."
"In such a game we would only be able to play about 40 of our
90 players,' he said..- -
"Under the current set up we can completely analyze all of our
players and see exactly who we want to invite back for the fall work-
outs," Elliott mentioned.
The youthful coach also added that the danger of injury was also
diminished in an intra-squad game.
17ESE THEN ARE the essential reasons why the Wolverines, like a
dwindling number of other schools, keep on playing intra-squad
games. With past results as a guide it is actually hard to see why
any complaints have been registered.
Last year Elliott, in his initial year in charge, divided his staff
into two groups, let them choose up sides and play ball. The result
was an exciting 22-21 game played before 8,000 fans, which was
decided in the waning moments of play.
This year the losing coaches of last spring's battle asked for a
rematch, Elliott happily agreed, the teams have been selected and are
now ready for action.
As Elliott said, the idea of spring practice is to analyze the indi-
viduals who will comprise the squad for the fall. An intra-squad game
according to Elliott is the best way to do this.
The game starts at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.
Admission is free.
It should be a good game.

BIG GAME SATURDAY-Head Coach Bump Elliott (third from left) will be an interested observer
Saturday when his squad divides for its annual intra-squad game. Coaching the Whites will be (second
from the left) Bob Holloway, (third from the right) Jack Nelson and (far right) Don Dufek. Handling
the Blues will be (far left) Jack Fouts and (second from the right) Hank Fonde.
Spring Grid Battle SaturdayJ

By The Associated Press
The Washington Senators ended
Cleveland's winning streak at five
games with a 7-6, ninth-inning,
victory over the Indians last night
that left the Chicago White Sox
all alone in the American League
Chicago's defending champs won
5-3 at Baltimore for a half-game
edge over the New York Yankees,
who tumbled the Detroit Tigers to
their seventh consecutive defeat
10-3. Boston beat Kansas City 4-3
in 10 innings.
in the National League, first-
place Pittsburgh wasn't scheduled,
and rain postponed second place
San Francisco's game with Mil-
Cincinnati led 1-0 after three
innings in a night game at Los
The Philadelphia Phillies de-
feated the Chicago- Cubs ,10-9 on
rookie Ken Walters'- ninth-inning
homer, his first in the majors.
Washington, blowing a 4-0 first-
inning lead, finally stopped the
Injuns on Lenny Green's fly ball
that fell for a single in right field
after a single by Earl Battey and
a bunt by Don Mincher. Tito
Francona drove in three runs for
Cleveland, now third, a game be-
hind. Jack Kralick (2-0) was the
winner and Bob Tiefnauer (0-1)'
the loser.
The White Sox, winning six of
their last seven, dropped the
Orioles out of a virtual first place
tie to fourth as southpaw Billy
Pierce (2-1) went all the way
with a 10-hitter. The Sox scored
a pair of unearned runs in the
second and wrapped it up with
two in the third on doubles by
Nellie Fox and Minnie Minoso
and a single by Roy Sievers.
Bill Skowron, Roger Maris and
pinch-hitter Kent Hadley hit
home runs for the Yankees, who
made half of their 14 hits good
for extra bases against loser Don

Mossi (0-2) and three relivers.
Gil McDougald, Maris and Art
Ditmar, winning his first in relief
of Whitey Ford, each had RBI
singles in a clinching three-run
An error-by first baseman Norm
Siebern gave the Red Sox the
payoff run that sent the A's to
their fifth straight defeat. Bud
Daley (1-2) lost it and Bill Mon-
bouquette (2-2) won it, both in

Spring football practice comes
to a conclusion this Saturday with
the Michigan gridders dividing
into two squads for their annual
intra-squad game in the Stadium.
Handling the White squad will
be line coach Bob Holloway, as-
sistant backfield coach Jack Nel-
son and frosh coach Don Dufek,
while backfield coach Hank Fonde
and assistant line coach Jack
Fouts will handle the Blues. Head
Coach Bump Elliott will be an
interested observer.
The coaches have already
"chosen sides" and are now pre-
paring their respective squads for
the contest. Blue coaches Fonde
and Fouts will be seeking revenge
for the 22-21 defeat they suffered
last spring.
As usual the spring game will
give local fans a preview peek at
next fall's sophomores, and ac-
cording to Elliott a lot of them
will see action Saturday.
He said "There will be a lot

of new faces on our second and
third strings next fall. In fact, I
wouldn't be surprised if a couple
sophomores made the first team."
The Michigan coach also indi-
cated that the Wolverines would
use three separate teams again
next fall. This means "the Raid-
ers," the third string defensive
unit that gained the fancy of the
fans last fall, will see action once

Several Michigan players will
sit out Saturday's game as a re-
sult of injuries. Halfback John
Haley, who was out all last fall
with a back injury, cracked his
wrist in spring drills and will
remain out of action. Guards Paul
Paulos and Lou Pavloff, halfbacks
Paul Raeder and Mike Agee, tackle
Paul Schmidt and fullback Dave
Mongeau will also miss the game
because of injuries.
Elliott seemed pleased with the
overall work of his squad so far
this spring, although he wasn't
happy with the results of Satur-
day's scrimmage during which
Michigan's wing-T offense failed
to get rolling.
"We weren't executing our plays
smoothly and didn't look well at
all," said Elliott. "However, I am
hoping we can come up with a
good offensive show for Satur-
day's game. Last year's 22-21 con-
test was a real crowd pleaser and
I hope we can come up with an-
other good game this spring."

Loves of Dobie Gillis", etc.)
Gentlemen, take warning. June is almost upon us-June, the
month of brides. Have you got yours yet? If not, don't de-
spair. You don't have to be rich or handsome to get a girl. All
you have to be is kind, 'considerate, thoughtful, and obliging-
in short, a gentleman.
For example, don't ever call a girl for a date at the last min-
ute. Always give her plenty of advance notice-like three
months for a coke date, six months for a movie, a year for a
prom, two years for a public execution. This shows the girl that
she is not your second or third choice and also gives her ample
time to select her costume.
And when you ask for a date, do it with a bit of Old World
gallantry. A poem, for instance, is always sure to please a
young lady, like this.
I think you're cute,
Daphne La France.
I'll put on a suit,
And take you to a dance.
In the unlikely event that you don't know any girls named
Daphne La France, try this:
I think you're cute,
Winifred Jopp.
I'll put on a suit,
And take you to a hop.
In the extremely unlikely event that you don't know a Win-
fred Jopp either, try this:
I think you're cute,
Isabel Prall.
I'll put on a suit,
And take you to a ball.

If there is no Isabel Prall, Winifred Jopp, or Daphne La
France on your campus, it is quite obvious why you've had
trouble finding dates all year: you've enrolled in an all-male
school, you old silly!
Next let us take up the question of etiquette once you are
out on a date with Isabel, Winifred, or Daphne. The first thing
you do, naturally, is to offer the young lady a Marlboro. Be
sure, however, to offer her an entire Marlboro-not just a
Marlboro butt. Marlboro butts are good of course, but whole
Marlboros are better. You get an extra inch or two of fine
flavorful tobacco-and I mean flavorful. Do you think flavor
went out when filters came in? Well, you've got a happy sur-
prise coming when you light a Marlboro. This one really de-
livers the goods on flavor, and when you hand Isabel, Winifred,
or Daphne a whole, complete, brand-new Marlboro, she will
know how highly you regard and respect her, and she will grow
misty and weak with gratitude, which is very important when
you take her out to dinner, because the only kind of coed a
college man can afford to feed is a weak and misty coed. Latest
statistics show that a coed in a normal condition eats one and
a half times her own weight every twelve hours.
At the end of your date with Isabel, Winifred, or Daphne,
make certain to get her home by curfew time. That is gentle-
