Seeking its second win of the sea-
son over Michigan State, the Michi-
gan baseball team will face the Spar-
tans today in a twilight affair in East
Lansing.
Big Earl Block will be on the
mound for the Wolverines trying to
repeat his performance of earlier in
the season when he held the hard
hitting Spartans to a pair of runs
on seven hits as the Wolverines went
on to win 4-2.
Coach John Kobs of the Spar-
tans has not definitely named his
starting hurler, but the odds are
on Robin Roberts who turned in a
no-hit, no-run game against the
Great Lakes nine two weeks ago.
Injuries Hinder
Pennant Drive,
Says O'Neill
PHILADELPHIA, June 4-(A)-In-
juries to three key players in last
night's game with Washington, along
with the other tough luck that has
pestered the club all season, are not
enough to detour it from the pennant
highway, says manager Steve O'Neill
of the Detroit Tigers.
"We've still got a good ball club-
all we have to do is to start hitting
like I know we can," O'Neill said be-
fore his team's night game with the
Philadelphia Athletics. "We've been
getting plenty of tough breaks but
if our hitters can only manage to
get us four or five runs a game we'll
be up there."

Keith Steftee and Joe Skrocki are
also in line for the job.
The Spartans hqve lost just four
games this year, an in the week af-
ter they fell before the Wolverines,
while they have chalked up 21 wins
for the season. Michigan State has
topped Wisconsin's Big Ten cham-
pionship nine on two occasions, by
top-heavy scores of 12-2 and 11-3,
and also holds twin victories over
Western Michigan, the team that the
Wolverines face on their last road
trip of the season on Friday.

Both teams will probably use the
same lineups that squared off
against each other on the Ferry
Field diamond in the third game
of the season back in April. Michi-
gan will have Don Robinson at
short in place of Jimmy Brown and
Jack Weisenberger will be in left
field. Both Wolverines w e r e
benched for the first game because
of injuries. Slugging Bob Nuss-
baumer will be in center.
Either Bucky Walsh or Pete For-
nari will be behind the plate for the
Spartans, while the infield will have
Jack Breslin at first, Bob Groves on
the keystone sack, Marty Hansen at
short and Harley Hughes at third.
Breslin is the only Spartan to hit
safely more than once in the first
game, as he connected for two singles.
George Rutenbar, Bob Ludwig
and Floyd Guest will man the pick-
et line for the home team
Elmer Swanson's home run and
Dom Tomasi's triple were the two
big hits in the ten-hit Wolverine at-
tack. Tom Rosema, Ralph Houser,
who was playing in left field for the
injured Weisenberger, and Bob Chap-
puis each hit safely twice.

Griffith Offers
'Old Bobo' Job
WASHINGTON, June 4 -(IP)- A
job with the Washington Senators
is waiting for Bobo Newsom, if base-
ball's wandering pitcher wants it.
Old Bobo, who asked for and re-
ceived an unconditional release from
the Philadelphia Athletics, talked
with owner Clark Griffith of the!
Senators by long-distance telephones
today.
"He said he's shopping around with
other clubs and I said that we'd have
a spot for him," Griffith told a re-
porter.
The Senators figure "Old Rubber-
Arm" would come in mighty handy,
both in a relief and starting role.

By GLORIA VREELANJ)
When they heard they were lead-
ing by the slender margin of one
stroke going into the final round of
the Conference championships at
Minneapolis last Saturday, Michi-
gan's triumphant golfers made up
their minds they were going to win,
said their elated mentor, Bill Bar-1
lay, and the result was the only Wol-1
verine Big Ten title of the year. J
Schalon Third
Ed Schalon, whose 302 was low for
the Maize and Blue and good enough
for a third place tie in the individual,
race, played top notch golf through-
out the tournament, but his final]
eighteen holes were particularly bril-
liant. Pete Sohl of Ohio State, who
played with Schalon, commented af-
terwards that the Michigan freshman
never made a mistake. He was put-
ting for birdies thirteen times and
for an eagle once. Only on one hole
did he falter in his approachnshots,
and then he made up for lost time
by sinking his putt.
Wild Bill Courtright amazed on-
lookers with his spectacular recovery
shots, especially during his 73 wind-
up round. Northwestern's coach, Sid
Richardson, admitted he had never
seen anybody get into and out of so
much trouble as did this Wolverine
golfer. The course is a narrow one
with plenty of woods and out-of-
bounds, and earlier in the season
coach Barclay was doubtful about
sending Courtright, who has trouble
controlling his long drives, to the
Conference meet.
Played in Rain
In Friday morning's round, the
wrestling champ played the back nine
in a downpour of rain and still suc-
ceeded in improving his first nine
score of 40 by three strokes.
An interesting sidelight in the
tournament is the fact that Michi-
gan could have won the championship
using either Rog Kessler's 317 or Bill
Ramsey's 321 in place of one of the
306 cards turned in by Courtright,
Pete Elliott and Dave Barclay. This
is one more indication of the Wol-
verines' fine team balance and the
expert, coaching job Barclay per-
formed in selecting men who could
play winning golf under pressure.
Seventeen-year-old Kessler was
one of the youngest and least exper-
ienced linksmen to compete this year.
His score was but one stroke above

that carded by last year's champion,
Howard Baker of Ohio, and he was
surpassed by only one player his own
age - Wildcat Chuck Lingren.
Minnesota Course Short
Minnesota's course is a short one.
For instance, a good player can reach
the green in two with an iron on
the first nine's two par five holes.
However, the below-40 temperature,
plus the rain storm on Friday, were
terrific, handicaps.
Ramsey has been unanimously
elected captain of the golf squad,
whose final workout will be in the
NCAA tournament at the Springdale
golf course in Princeton beginning
June 27.
Ramsey has been one of the Wol-
verines most consistent players all
year and the trip to Princeton will
come as a special sort of reward.
