Yankees snap Bengal strea


Special to The Daily
DETROIT - Bobby Murcer
doubled home two runs I a st
night in the eighth inning to
ruin the Tigers' seven g a me
win streak and Mike Kilkenny's
bid for his first victory of the
year, as New York beat De-
troit, 2-1'
Kilkenny allowed only four
hits in his 7% innings, but
wildness was his undoing in
the eighth.
Kilkenny walked Gene Mich-
ael to start the inning, and with
two out Michael tried to steal
second. He got a terrible jump
and would have been out were
it not for catcher Bill Free-

han's high throw and Michael's
toothpick-thin leg, which slip-
ped under the tag.
Thurmond Munson walked,

Martin came close to lifting the
He didn't, however, and Mur-

Campy sends 'U'
letter of intent

Michigan's basketball for-
tunes, which seem to be getting
brighter all the time with the
recruitment of several of the top
names in the nation, received a
long-awaited and perhaps most
important dose of added bril-
liance yesterday morning as
hoop coach John Orr announced
that he had received a Big Ten
letter of intent from Campy

still seeking
new leader
IOWA CITY, Iowa (P) - The
Big Ten's search for a $30,000-
-a-year athletic commissioner
was under full steam yesterday
with a preliminary list of
about 20 candidates.
Chairman George Yo u n g,
Wisconsin faculty representa-
tive, said his committee a 1 s o
would contact the presidents
-of all conference schools f o r
their possible nominations.
"Each of our five-man groups
has been given a list of four
or five prospects and from now
on we'll be getting in touch
with the candidates on our
list," Young said.
Marcus Plant of Michigan, top
apokesman for the faculty
group, and John Fuzak of MSU
have been mentioned as like-
ly strong candidates from the
Big Ten itself.
Young added that he hoped
the new commissioner c o ul d
be selected before the n e x t
regular conference in e a r 1 y
August at Petoskey, Mich.

By signing the letter, the Pon-
tiac Central star, recognized as
one of the finest schoolboy play-
ers in the country, signified his
intention to enroll at Michigan
next fall. The signed letter
makes it impossible for Campy
to attend any Big Ten school
other than Michigan next year.
The athletic department has
announced a formal press con-
ference for this morning at Pon-
tiac Central high school at
which time Russell will sign the
necessary national letter. His
signature on this letter essen-
tially rules out attendance of
any school outside the confer-
Coach Orr said of Campy's
signing, "Campy certainly will
be a boost to the long range bas-
ketball program at Michigan".
Tuesday a report had been
filed with the wire services ac-
knowledging Russell's intention
to attend Michigan. Russell was
quoted at that time as saying
"My friendship and respect for
assistant coach Fred Snowden
and the entire Michigan staff
was instrumental in my deci-
However, University officials,
who had not yet received
Campy's letter of intent, failed
to confirm the report.
The 6-7 All-America., who
sported a 26 point scoring aver-
age in his senior year, ended
nearly two years of intense spec-
ulation about where he would
play his collegiate ball, by choos-
ing Michigan. Earlier in the year
he had indicated his intention to
stay in the state.
Among the some 74 other
schools recruiting him were
Michigan State, University of
Detroit, and NCAA champion

Major League Standings


- Muhammad Ali said on local
television last night that h i s
next fight will be against Jim-
my Ellis.
The Associated Press had
learned earlier in the day that
the match would be made for
sometime this summer,
Then Ali, here to speak at the
University of Minnesota, con-
firmed in a TV interview that
he will fight Ellis.
Ali did not say when or where
the fight would be but did say
a formal announcement would
be made tonight.
At an afternoon news confer-
ence Ali had declined to name
his next opponent.
"Before I meet Frazier again
I'd like to have two more
matches," said Ali who lost a 15
round decision to heavyweight
champion Joe Frazier in New
York's Madison Square Garden
last March 8.
