SPORTS BEAT

A Pleasant Problem
LOCAL SPORT FANS are faced with an old and impossible problem
tomorrow-how to be in two different places at the same time.
While it is extremely doubtful that they will come up with a solu-
tion to this problem, interested fans will plan their time so that they
can see at least two of the five Michigan teams that will be/ in action
on, home grounds tomorrow.
It is a scheduling rarity that presents local fans with this pleasant
problem. Seldom do more than two or three Wolverine teams perform
at home on the same weekend, let alone the same day. An added diffi-
culty for the fans is that they can expect fine performances wherever
they choose to spend their time.
Speaking alphabetically, in order not to offend those fans with a
special prejudice:
BASEBALL-Michigan will meet its best-loved rival, the Spartans
of Michigan State, in a doubleheader beginning on Ferry Field at
1:30 p.m. The Wolverines will open the three-game series today with
a single contest at East Lansing. Coach Don Lund's squad will be
attempting to bounce back from the twin whipping they received at
Minnesota last weekend. Until the Gophers mauled them, by the
scores of 11-1 and 10-3, the Wolverines were rated strong contenders
for the Big Ten title.
Anchored with a 3-3 record, they now need a sweep of the Michi-
gan State series to keep their faint title hopes alive. To accomplish
this, feat the Wolverine bats will have to boom as they did earlier in
the season when the team batting average was far above the .300
mark. Against Conference pitching they have managed only a .264
mark. And the Spartans, despite their 1-3 record, are expected to be
strong in this department.
FOTBALL-A seven minute walk from the baseball diamond is the
Michigan Stadium where Bump Elliott's corps will hold their
annual spring intra-squad game beginning at 1:30. This contest per-
mits Elliott, his coaching staff and local fans to see next fall's sopho-
mores in action under game conditions for the first time.
And from the looks of things a lot of sophs will see action tomor-
row because they figure heavily in the plans for next fall's team. A
couple of first year men to keep an eye on are quarterbacks Dave
Glinka and Bob Chandler, either of whom could start against Oregon
on September 24. Halfback Dave Raimey, fullback Joe O'Donnell, ends
Bill Freehan and Bob Brown and guard John Minko are just a few
of the newcomers whose actions will be carefully scrutinized.
GOLF -The Big Ten's best-Ohio State, Purdue and Indiana-in-
vade Ann Arbor for a quadrangular meet with Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer's squad. Two weeks ago the Wolverines lost to all three teams
in a similar match at Ohio State. However, familiarity with the Uni-.
versity's tough Blue course may put the Wolverines into contention
tomorrow.
Featuring the golf action will be the appearance of the Big Ten's
top two golfers. Jon Konsek of Purdue has won the Big Ten medalist
title for two years running. However, Konsek may lose out this year.
The man picked to beat him is Jack Nicklaus, a member of tomorrow's
delegation from Ohio State. Nicklaus has already made a name for
himself in golf's big time by winning the National Amateur. Red-hot
golf fans will get up early tomorrow morning to see how the Buckeye
star does on the Blue course, which is reputed to be one of the toughest
in the Big Ten.
tfE N -The Wolverines, defending Conference champions, meet
Wisconsin in a match that starts at 2:15. However, tennis fans,
who want to see some of the other sports in action, will probably plan
on seeing today's match with Illinois instead of the one with the weak
Badgers. Illinois is once again rated among the best in the Conference
and Michigan's showing today should give some indication of its title
chances.
R.ACK-One of Michigan's all-time great track teams puts in its
lone home appearance of the outdoor season, meeting Western
Michigan at 1:00. The Broncos, with a fairly strong squad, will be no
pushover for the Wolverines who in two weeks will attempt to add the
Big Ten outdoor title to their growing list of honors, A unique aspect
of the meet is that all the top Michigan stars are healthy, and will be
entered in their best events. And when that happens, this fine col-
lection of athletes who already hold several Michigan varsity marks,
records are bound to fall.
