coach, decided that Anderson had
enough and sent in Overmire, who
caused Sofiak to ground out short
to first, ending the inning and leav-
ing three Wolverines on base.
In the Broncos' half of the fourth
Michigan's air tight infield sprung
a leak and two unearned runs crossed
the plate to tie up the ball game.
Misplay Costs Runs
In that frame after Bob Metzger
singled over third and Denny Yargar
hit a sure double play ball to ener-
getic Mike Sofiak at shortstop, Mike
played the ball perfectly, whipping
the pellet to right side of second base
so Wayne Christenson could start a
double play. But the husky little
baseman failed to cover properly and
'the ball went into center field. The
Broncos promptly capitalized on this
play when Bob Jenkins cracked a
double into deep left field scoring
both Yargar and Metzger. Muir then
buckled down and retired the side in
order.
Mike Sofiak made the most brilliant
catch of the game and one of the best
of the year in the fifth inning with
bases loaded. With the stands on their
feet yelling for Bob Jenkins, the boy
who hit the two-run double in the
inning before, to get another safe hit
and send Western in the lead, the
rightfielder started what looked like
a sure single to center. Sofiak dove
for the ball and made a sensational
catch that brought the three thou-
sand fans witnessing the game to
their feet with loud applause for the
Wolverine shortstop.
Nelson Misses Fly
The Broncos' lead went ahead in
the sixth when Overmire drove a
long fly to center that the usually re-
liable Dave Nelson let get away from
him. Overmire went all the way to
third on the error and scored on a
single to left to put the Teachers in
the lead.
Michigan stayed in the ball game
by scoring a run in the seventh on
two scratch singles and an infield
out, but the Broncos took the lead
again in their half on a long double
and a pair of infield outs to give
them the ball game.

0*cTrack Pro gostications
* Big Ten Meet Dope
By HAL WILSON
Daily Sports Editor

a

ANN ARBOR'S closest approach to
a living crystal ball, Prof. Phil-
lip Diamond, emerged yesterday from
his semi-annual mathematical tranceI
with the announcement that on paper
Michigan's fastv.improving trackmen
would fall short of their fifth consec-
utive Big Ten outdoor title by one-
half point.
But in the very next breath the
famous German professor, swing
music expert, and ace track prog-
nosticator emphasized that he was
convinced the Wolverine spikemen
cculd and would shatter Indiana'sI
slight paper advantage by virtue
of traditional Maize and Blue in-
spiration and an emotional surge
of determination that is evident
already in the Michigan camp.
With a remarkable record of only
two misses in his 22-meet prognosti-
cating history, Phil declares that In-'
diana's star-studded cinder machine,
which copped the indoor meet hand-
ily, has the paper strength to pile
up 49%/2 points in the outdoor classic
this weekend at Minneapolis, while
Michigan has an even 49.
But this is figuring in cold sta-
tistics - and Phil believes the hu-
man element will result in a Wol-
verine upset and successful title
defense. The Dohertymen also have
considerable secondary' strength,
according to Diamond, which may
quite feasibly acd several valuable
points to the Maize and Blue total,
Bob Baruard inv the .quarter. Herb
Leake in the mile, Dave Matthews
in the half, Tom Lawton and Bob
Hook in the discur, and Frank Mc-
Carthy in the broad jum-p - all
may slip into one of the first five
places, Phil declares.

Three Titles Won
In Residence Hall
Baseball Leagues
Down at South Ferry Field yester-
day the champions of leagues one,
two and three in tle Residence Hall}
softball race were decided. At the
same time one fraternity advanced
to the softball first-place playoffs.
Behind the brilliant two-hit pitch-
ing of Jim Hull, Lloyd House eked
out a 1-0 victory over Chicago House
to become champions of the first
league. In the second, league, Wil-
liams put on a scoring and hitting
spree to wallop Allen-Rumsey 18-3.
A Over in East Quad's third league,
Prescott House defeated Greene
House, 5-1, although the latter outhit
Prescott, 5-4.
In a game featured by the mass
hitting of Sigma Nu, they advanced
to the first-place playoffs by wal-
oping Theta Delta Chi, 13-3. The only
other fraternity competition of the
day was in tennis where Acacia de-
feated Delta Upsilon, 2-1.

A powerful band of Wolverine
trackmen will set out for Minneapolisj
at 8 a.m. tomorrow in search of its
fifth consecutive Western Confer-
ence outdoor title, and if this track.
team runs the way it did during the1
past two weeks, it will have i veryI
good chance of winning the crown.1
The strong Indiana Hoosiers, pre-
senting such stars as lanky Camp-,
bell Kane in the mile and half-mile,
and speedy Roy Cochran in the 220,
the 440, and the low hurdles, are
conceded a slight edge over Michigan
in the Big Ten meet, but the Wol-
verines, with a 74-/2-561/2 victory over
Notre Dame two weeks, ago and an
overwhelming 90-41 win over Ohio
State last Saturday, proved that they
have the potential power necessary
to turn the trick against the Hoosiers I
and finish ahead of the field.{
Before joining the U.S. Naval Air1
Corps this fall, Kane will attempt a
double victory, seeking both the mile
and 880 titles. Kane is almost a cer-
tainty in the mile, his strongest op-
position probably being Buckeye Capt.j
Les Eisenhart. But the 880 mightc
tell a different story.
Michigan will have three of the1
best half-milers in its history pittingt
their might against Kane. Warren
I Breidenbach, smooth-striding Wolver-
ine star, set a new dual meet record
of 1:52.4 seconds in the 880 against
the Buckeyes last week, his time also
being the fastest that the distance
has ever been run by a Michigan var-
sity man. Johnny Kautz and Dave
Matthews also ran the best races of
their careers, coming in only a few
steps behind Breidenbach.

matched, but this year both teams
appear stronger.
Back for another year of competi-
tion under Notre Dame colors are
Capt. John Joyce and Dan Canale,
number two and one singles players,
respectively. The two latter team
together to form the number one
doubles combination which will do
battle with the Wolverine all-star duo
of Tobin and Hammett.
Rounding out the Notre tame ag-
gregation are Olen Parks and George
Bittner, two sophomores, and Norm
Heckler and John Walsh, two sen-
iors. Parks and Bittner play three
and four singles and second doubles
while Heckler and the left-handed
Walsh play in five and six singles
and third doubles.
Yesterday's clear weather gave the
Wolverine racqueteers their first
chance in more than a week to
practice outside, and everyone took a
lengthy workout.
Last week's matches with Purdue,
Northwestern, and Ohio State had
shown all concerned, that "practice
makes perfect." Porter worked on his
overhead game, while Hammett was
busy polishing up on his net play.
Both Tobin and Gamon worked on
their service which seem to be giving
them trouble.
