Capital ties series'
From Wire Service Reports
LANDOVER, Md.-Guards Archie Clark and Phil Chenier

and tied their National Basketball Association playoff series at
three games apiece.
The deciding game of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference
semifinals will be played in New York Friday night.
The Bullets, who blew fourth-quarter leads while losing the
two previous games in the series, took a 68-67 advantage into
the final 12 minutes. They spurted ahead 77-69 after 1:16 had
been played and were never threatened.x
CLARK, AN AGING superstar bothered by injuries all sea--
son and used only sparingly in the playoffs, finished with 20
points-two more than his total for five previous games. Chenier
finished with 22.
Elvin Hayes led the Bullets with 31 points, giving him 169
for the series. Walt Frazier, New York's leader, again led
with 25.

WFL claims Jessie
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Ron Jessie, a starting wide receiver
for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League, signed with
the Birmingham Americans of the World Football League yes-
-terd y.-
The multi-year contract goes into effect in 1975.
Jessie was a seventh-round draft choice of the Dallas Cow-
boys in 1971 after playing at the University of Kansas. He was
traded to Detroit in 1972.
HE HAS PLAYED in every game since joining the Lions
and haS been a starter for the last two years.
He is the second player from the NFL to sign with the
Americans. Ken Stabler of Oakland signed earlier.
ANOTHER important WFL signing was made by the Hous-
ton Texans. They announced yesterday that they have signed dis-
enchanted Dallas Cowboy quarterback Craig Morton to a con-
tract for the 1975 season.
The Detroit Sharks?
DETROIT - The Los Angeles Sharks of the World Hockey
Association will be moved to Detroit in time for next season, the
club's new owners said Wednesday.
Chuck Nolton and Pete Shegena, Detroit businessmen who
bought the franchise earlier this year, said a new nickname
would be chosen.
The team has a two-year contract for home games in the
10,000-seat Cobo Arena, with an option for a third, the owners
said.

Tennis today,.
On the wall of Brian Eisner's office are listed the Michigan
tennis teams' goals for the 1974 season. Included are winning
the Big Ten and national championships as well as a host of
lesser individual quests. Lest the reader be dubious because of
the loftiness of these aspirations, the Wolverine netters stand
ready to convert all skeptics when they play four home matches
in the next five days to kick-off this year's dual meet schedule.
"The weather has prevented us from playing much outdoor
tennis," the Michigan mentor commented. "It takes us at least
a week to snake the adjustment from indoors to outdoors."
Michigan only started to practice outdoors on Tuesday.
Despite these factors, however, the Blue netters should
have no trouble destroying Notre Dame (today at 2:30), Minne-
sota (Friday at 3:00), Iowa (Saturday at 10 a.m.), and Michigan
State (Monday) in that order. Eisner claims that Notre Dame has
been very impressive this Spring," but the logical prediction is
that the Wolverines will not be extended by any of them.
Coach Eisner has based his lineup on the results of intra-
squad matches and for the opener against Notre Dame the Wol-
verines will field:
Singles-1) Victor Amaya, 2) Peter Fleming, 3) Eric Fried-
ler, 4) Freddie De Jesus, 5) Kevin Senich, 6) Jeff Miller.
Doubles-1) Amaya-Friedler, 2) Fleming-DeJesus, and 3)
Jerry Karzan-Jeff Holman.
Traditionally the Wolverines use the Big Ten as a warmup
for nationals and this year should be no exception. One of the
teams' more interesting goals is to defeat every team in the
Big Ten by a 9-0 score and to win all nine individual cham-
pionships at the 'conference meet. The magnitude of this alone
will undoubtedly provide some excitement to what should be
a very predictable string of Michigan tennis triumphs.
And if, perchance, these meets convince you of the tremen-
dous ability that the Wolverines have . . . well as an old cliche
put it, "You ain't seen nothing yet!" In fact, Eisner expects his
team to perform well beneath its peak level.

DOWN TOLEDO, 3-0, 4-2:

wins

By BILL CRANE
The Michigan baseball team put
it all together yesterday afternoon
as they swept their sun-soaked
doubleheader, whipping the Uni-
versity of Toledo 3-0 and 4-2 on
the strength of 15 hits at Ray Fish-
er Stadium. The hits indeed started
coming and the pitchers perform-
ed like they were appreciative of
the support.
IN THE FIRST game of the twin
bill, the Wolverines struck early.
Dick Walterhouse lead off with a
single, and the Maize and Blue
second baseman put himself into
scoring position quickly by steal-
ing second base. Chris Burak
knocked him in with another sin-
gle and Michigan had scored after
their first two men had come to
bat. Burak went on to bat four-
for-seven on the day.
Ted Mahan followed and bounced
a double off the left field fence but
Michigan ended the inning with
the bases loaded when the slug-
gers couldn't get an additional
clutch hit.
THE MOST EXCITING play of
the game was a suicide squeeze
the Wolverines pulled to perfec-
tion. With one out in the sixth Dan
Damiani sliced a double into right
centerfield and advanced to third
when the Rocket shortstop could-
n 't control the throw from the out-
field. Michigan Coach Moby Bene-
dict called for the squeeze and
Mark Grenkowski reached out
across the plate and laid down a
beautiful bunt toward the Toledo
pitcher. Michigan had a quick run.
Chuck Rogers and Craig Forhan
combined in two-hitting Toledo
and although Rogers didn't have
his usually sharp control, he did
not let a Rocket runner reach
third base. Forhan came in after
the fourth inning and gave up one
measly single while walking no-
body.

mance in protecting young Greg
Sheppard's second-period goal and
the Boston Bruins edged the To-i
ronto Maple Leafs 1-0 last night in
the opener of their National Hockey
League quarterfinal playoff series.
Sheppard cashed his own rebound
at 4:22 of the middle session and
the Bruins clung to the advantage
in a furious windup as Gilbert hung
on against six Toronto skaters in
the final 6 seconds.
Gilbert, who lost in his only pre-
vious playoff game while with Min-
nesota last year, finished with 35
saves, including nine in tha third
period.
Doug Favell, a former Boston
farm hand, was equally spectacu-
lar in the Toronto goal with 32
saves in the close-checking series
opener before 15,003 fans at Boston
Garden.
Favell was pulled in favor of a
sixth skater as Toronto maie a'
desperate move to tie the cnunt
with 1:26 remaining and a faceoff

bert smothered the puck in a big
pile-up in his crease with 1:11 to
go and the Bruins didn't give the
Maple Leafs another chance.
