1 l'M Nine Rips Indiana, 10-4,
For Third Conference Win
Morrison, Kolbrin, Wikel Spark Wolverim-
Attack as Art Dole Gains Second Victory

By HERB RUSKIN
(Special to The Daily)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., April 23
--Exploding for seven runs in the
eighth inning, Michigan's base-
ball team downed a strong In-
diana nine, 10-4, today.
It was the Wolverines third vic-
tory in as many starts against
Conference opponents, and pitch-
er Art Dole's second.
Trailing 4-3 going into their
half of the eighth, Michigan put
together four hits and three
walks for their game winning
rally.
Dom Tomasi started things off
in the big inning by drawing a
base on balls. Bob Chappuis fol-
lowed him with a hard smash to
right on the hit and run sending
Tomasi to third. Chappuis stole
second.
Ted Berce batted for Dole and
popped to the third baseman.
Then things really got hot for
the Hoosiers.
Bump Elliott drew a base on
balls from relief hurdler Don
Ritter, Ralph Morrison followed
in his footsteps and also walked,
forcing in Tomasi with the ty-
g run.
Ted Kobrin drove in what
proved to be the winning runs
tagging a three and two pitch into
left center field to clear the bases.
Jack Weisenburger kept things
alive for tlTe Wolverines as he
vaited out the Indiana hurler for
a pass.
Howard Wikel ended the scor-
ing for both teams driving a long
ball over the head of the center
fielder for a home run.
Tomasi and Chappuis walked
after this, but Tomasi was put
out at the plate trying to score
on a passed ball to end the in-
ning.
Indiana moved out into a quick
four run lead, when it tallied
twice in both the first and third
innings. Willard Litz began things
for the Hoosiers when he singled
to right.
Tom Birko forced him for the
second out of the inning, but
Ritter doubled and Stearman
scored both of them with a wicked
smash down the left field line.
They practically diuplicated
the scoring in the third when
Moore singled, moved over to
third on Iitter's double, and
both men scored when Stear-
man dumped one out into cen-
ter field.
The Wolverines got two of these
back in their half of the fourth
inning. Kobrin, leading off,
walked.
Weisenburger then laid into one
of starting pitcher Ward Wil-
liams' fast balls and sent it be-
tween the left and center fielder
for a triple. He scored a few min-
utes later on Tomasi's long fly to
left.
Michigan's other scoriig in-
ning also started with Kobrin
getting a base on balls. Wikel sent
him to third with a line drive

single to left and Tomasi brought
him home, singling to left.
The game started out as if
it were going to be a breeze for
the Wolverines, when they
loaded the bases in the first
inning on a walk to Elliott and
hits by Morrison and Kobrin.
However, Williams settled down,
struck out the next two batters
and got Elliott by a close deci-
sion at the plate, when he tried
to steal home. Michigan didn't
threaten in any other inning.

Opens Home
Season Toda/y
Western Mich gan
Furnishes Opposition
A highly-rated Michigan ten-
nis squal will put its talents on
display before a home crowd for
the first time this season when it
meets Western Michigan's Bron-
cos at 2 p.m. today at Ferry Field
courts.
Paced by Andy Paton, one of the
top racket-wielders in college cir-
cles, and strengthened by the re-
turn of ex-sailor Jack Hersh, the
Wolverines will present a veteran
aggregation which ranks with
Northwestern as a top threat for
the Western Conference crown.
Michigan Favore-
Strictly on the ioass of last
year's performance the Wolverines
will enter today's matches as the
favorite, but Western Michigan,
undefeated in three contests this
year, will be no pushover.
Arnie Brown has taken over for
the Broncos as thenr number one
man and will provide the opposi-
tion for Paton, while John Mil-
roy will carry the Western ban-
ner against the steady Fred Otto
in the number two spot.
Mikulich Meets Lightvoet
Capt. Bill Mikulich voids down
the number three position for the
Maize and Blue and will be fac-
ing Bill Lightvoet while Hersh,
who played in the number one
spot before leaving for sea duty,
will play in the number four slot
against Jim Jankowski.
Dick Lincoln and Gordie Nau-
gle rounded out the Michigan
team in the number five and six
positions opposing Broncos Don
Constant and Ray Postema.
Doubles Teams Named
Doubles play will see Andy Pat-
on teaming up with either Hersh
or Otto in the first doubles and
Mikulich and Otto or Hersh in the
second doubles.
Naugle and Lincoln will prob-
ably form the Wolverines' third
doubles team but there is a chance
that Bob MacKay may break in.

mile champion, set the pace for
the Western Conference athletes
as they turned in the only double
triumph of the day.
Closest to Michigan in all-
around performance was a col-
lection of Army Air and Ground
Force stars now training for the
Olympics at Lackland Air Base
near San Antonio, Tex.
A crowd of some 10,000 braved
a threat of rain which never came
in wind-blown Franklin Field,
many of them expecting to see
Fonville toss the 16-pound shot
clear out of the park.
The 20-year-old Michigan star
didn't come close to the world rec-
ord shattering heave of 58 feet
% inch he achieved at the Kansas
Relays last week, but he flipped
the iron ball an even 56 feet to
wipe out an eight-year-old Relay
mark.
The winning toss, made on
his fourth effort, was nearly
five feet better than that of his
closest opponent and it bettered
the meet mark of 55 feet 5 3/8
inches set by the late Al Blozis
in 1940. Only other record-
breaking performance of the
day came in the School Boy di-
vision, where Boys High of
Brooklyn twice shattered the
National High School quarter-
mile relay standard that had
stood for 20 years.
Fonville almost pulled off a
double victory by himself. He was
leading in the discus throw with
a toss of 160 feet % inch until
Vic Frank of Yale hurled the
platter 160 feet 7 inches on his
last try to capture first place.
Barten stepped the 880 yard
anchor leg in 1:53 flat, coming
from behind after losing a five-

yard lead, to lead Michigan vic-
tory in the sprint medley relay.
The event was run in two sec-
tions and New York University
had triumphed in the first half in
3:28.3 with Reggie Pearman, na-
tional AAU 800-meter champion,
coming from behind on the an-
chor leg which he completed in
1:55.
Michigan's Orval Johnson,
George Shepherd and Joe Hayden
barely staved off the challenge of
the Fordham crew through the
first three legs, and Barten led
Jerry Connolly of Fordham by five
yards as they headed into the
half-mile.
Connolly forged in front only
220 yards from the finish but
couldn't hold his lead. Barten
swept in front again and tri-
umphed by six yards for a team
clocking of 3:27.5.
Lackland's Army trainees pro-
duced a surprise winner in the
440-yard relay.
With Gerry Karver, National
AAU 1,500 meter champion, run-
ning the final mile, Penn State
captured the distance medley re-
lay in 10:15.1.
It was a race in which Paul
Koch of Penn State trailed badly
at the end of the initial 440-yard
leg, only to have teammates Mit-

Tigers Lose
To Tribe,.8-2
DETROIT, April 23-.-(/I')-Scor-
ing six times on four home runs,
two by Ken Keltner and one each
by Larry Doby and pitcher Bob
Lemon, the Cleveland Indians
belted the Detroit Tigers, 8 to 2,
today to grab the American League
lead.
The defeat broke a Detroit win-
ning streak at three games and
dropped the Tigers into a second
place deadlock with the Philadel-
phia Athletics, who lost to Wash-
ington. Not since 1911, when they
won six in a row, had the Tigers
opened the season with three
straight wins.
Lemon pitched brilliantly al-
though three of Detroit's six hits
were for extra bases.
Eddie Mayo tripled with one
man out in the opening inning but
didn't score.l Mayo's third-inning
double scored Hutchinson, who
had walked, and Vic Wertz tripled
in the seventh, scoring the other
Detroit run after George Kell's
fly.

OSU Is Host
To JV Links
Squad Today
Michigan's jayvee golfers will
attempt to break into the win col-
umn in their second start of the
season when they meet the Ohio
State JV squad at Columbus to-
day.
If the Buckeye club is to be
judged on the basis of their var-
sity, Wolverine Coach Bill Lu-
dolph's men are in for a rough
time on the links, when the four-
man squads clash.
Competition for berths has been
very keen during the practice ses-
sions held this week. In an in-
ter-squad match played during
the week, Jerry Weiler carded an
.xceptional 77, to assure him-
self of a chance to face the Buck-,
eyes.
The remaining three positions
on the Wolverine contingent will
be filled by Keith LeClaire, Bob
Keiser, and Bill Telfer.
The 36-hole match will get un-
(ter way at 11 o'clock this morning
when the Weiler - LeClaire and
Keiser - Telfer duos square off
against the Ohioans in the best
ball event. The four singles
matches will take place in the af-
ternoon.

In addition to leading all boos-
ter teams that evening, the Strik-
ers are in line to finish among the
first ten team's when the final
standings are tabulated, since
they were only 60 pins behind the
top squad.
Dick Preston of the Strikers,
turned in the best series and the
best single game among the 12
Ann Arbor teams who made the
trip to Detroit. His three-game
effort was 169-198-269, for a 630
total. Bob Titus, also of the
Strikers, was right behind with
224, 229, 155-608.
The Turkeys had the high team
game with a 994 on the third.
Mike Chiapetta hit 225, Ralph
Wildermann 219, and John Bcz-
verkov 212 to set the pace.
