May 27. decide who will play.

The Wolverine baseball team scored
three runs to Grosse Ile's one in a
contest that was just two outs short
of being an official ballgame.
With the rain coming down in
torrents, the game was finally called
after the naval base pitcher, Bob
Hall, was hit a't the base of the skull
by a pitched ball.
In the four and one-third innings
of play, the Wolverines got four hits
and no errors, while the Sailors
pounded out four hits and two errors.
Hackstadt Makes First Appearance
Jack Hackstadt made his debut on
the mound for the Wolverines and
pitched the first three innings in
which the Sailors nicked him for
two hits.
These two safties came in the sec-
ond when Pete Commondorous con-
nected and hit a high ball into cen-
ter field and the next man up, Bob
Spangler, sent one right over second
base.
Al Willers, who pitched one inning
against Iowa, hurled the last inning
and one-third giving up the other two
hits to the Sailors.
Chet Zelinski, the naval base's star
catcher, led off the fourth with a

hot double into left center field.'
"Pepper" Ray then got a base hit
over second, but the Wolverines
caught him off base as Moore came
up to the plate and they then exe-
cuted a fast double play as Pete Com-
mondorous grounded to Blanchard
who threw to Ketterer to Swanson
and the inning ended with the Sail-
ors still not scoring.
Michigan's hitting was pretty well
divided up with two hits in the first
by Mike Farnyk and Bruce Blan-
chard. Farnyk scored on Blanchard's
hit after Ketterer sacrificed.
Willers Gets Extra Base Hit
Pitcher Al Willers got the only
Wolverine extra base hit in the sec-
ond when he blasted one into center-
field. Bob Nussbaumer accounted for
the other hit in the fourth when he
hit a sharp-grounder into centerfield.
The Wolverines renew their Big
Ten rivalry as they journey to Cham-
paign for a doubleheader Saturday.
This two-game series will close the
Illinois season.
Two freshman hurlers, Howard
Judson and Lou Possehl will probably
start for the Illini against Bowman
and Hirsch for the Wolverines.

Dale Not CompetingI
Bill Dale, who most certainly would
cop first place in the high jump, is
being forced to remain on the cam-,
pus by his duties in the Naval ROTC,
and Fred Stolliker is laying off this
week because of a leg injury. With-
out these members of the squad com-
peting, the Wolverine point-score is
sure to be lower than last week, how-,
ever, the old reliable team balance
which has earmarked this year's,
team, will probably mean another!
victory for Michigan.
Purdue, as could be seen Saturday,!
is no powerhouse team, and Minne-,
sota has not shown any strength this
season, coming in third in a quad-{
rangular meet with Illinois, North-
western and Chicago. Western Mich-
igan, whom the Wolverines so thor-
oughly drubbed in their dual meet'
indoors last February, have not
shown enough improvement that
would indicate they are serious con-j
tenders this Saturday.
Humes Shoot for Mile Mark2
This week the Hume twins, Bob
and Ross, will again be shooting for
a record in the mile run. They might
have achieved this goal Saturday had
not the high winds hindered their
running. The two are possible en-
tries in either the half or two-mile
runs, where they will again encounterl
Jack Exler of Purdue.
The squad as a whole, excepting
those who are unable to make the
trip, came out of Saturday's meetl
in fine shape, and this four-cornered
affair will give Coach Doherty an-
other chance to see what he will havel
in the Conference meet which comes
May 27.
