Nelson Paces Baseball Squad
With Perfect Day At The Plate

By BOB SHOPOFF
Crafty Coach Ray Fisher looked
at the blue overhead skies with a
broad smile yesterday as he sent his
diamond squad through its second
nine-inning game of the week yes-
terday.
The Varsity 'A' team made it two
in a row yesterday as they blasted
the 'B' team to win, 14-1. After the
game Coach Fisher remarked, "We're
improving every day. Today the
fielding picked up a bit and if this
weather continues, we'll certainly be
set for the Southern trip."
Nelson Gets Four Singles
Michigan's diminutive center field-
er, Davey Nelson, had a field day as
he led the 'A' squad to victory. Little
Davey, who really patrols the outer
garden, collected four singles in as
many times at bat and scored three
markers to pace both nines.
The Wolverine mentor used six
sophomore hurlers in the tilt yester-
day so he could get an idea how they
First-Year Matmen
Awarded NiNI-tei'als
Five wrestlers who have been
working out on the freshman mat
squad for the past few months were
awarded their numerals by Coach
Ray Courtright today.
Those who earned their sweaters,
were Robert Allen, Eggertsville, N.Y.;,
Robert Bursian, Petoskey; Lawrence
Loftus, Toledo, Ohio; Donald O'Neill,
Webster Groves, Mo., and Harry Rus-
sel, Battle Creek.

are shaping up. Chuck Weiss, Jack
Hayes and Bill Whitney each pitched
three innings for the 'B' team while
Bill Cain, Dick Savage and Don
Smith were on the mound for the 'A'
squad.
Cain Allows One Hit
Cain was hot as he held the oppo-
nents to a lone single and didn't al-
low a man to get past first. Bill is a
fast-ball pitcher and has fair control.
He was aided yesterday by the high
wind which gave added speed to his
fast one. The wind didn't help the
hitters either as it was blowing in
from the outfield and held the fly
balls up.
The 'A' team started their scoring
early when they counted four times
in the first inning as faulty fielding
by their opponents helped them.
Again in the seventh they broke loose
and batted around as Nelson started
with a single -and ended the inning
by stalling on second after singling.
However, in between Nelson's two
hits, the 'A' team garnered seven
runs to put the game on ice.
Chamberlain Clouts Triple
Bud Chamberlain, who is practi-
.cally dead certain to open the season
at third base, added a thrill to the
game in the ninth inning when he
came up for his first time and
promptly clouted the horsehide into
left field for a triple. The only other
extra-base hit of the game was from
the bat of Johnny Erpelding, who is
making his bid for shortstop.
Coach Fisher is hoping that the
weather will continue, because the
two teams will go at it again today
if it does.

Three Varsity
Netmen Battle
For Positions
Weir Awaits Outdoor Drill
Before Making Decision
On Last Three Rankings
By DICK SIMON,
Not only is Coach Leroy Weir still
undecided whom he will place in the
number one, two and three singles
spots, but he still can't make up his
mind which of his netters will play
in the lower three brackets.
Competition in the lower three
brackets is just as heated as in the
first three singles positions, and
again, the three men-Tom Gamon,
Gerry Schaflander and Alden John-I
son-battling for the fourth, fifth
and sixth spots are playing very even
tennis.
