Wolverine Golfers Whip

'M' Nine Encounters Toledo Today

Spartan Visitors,



It was a wonderful day!
And Michigan's golf team never
found the weather or the home
course more to its liking as they
walloped the cross- state MSC
Spartans 23-7.
Chasing par all over the course,
Rog Kessler paced the Wolverines
with a brilliant 72. Kessler almost
got in under par but failed to col-
Frosh Timeu
Trials Boost
Cinder Hopes
If Saturday's time trials are any
indication, next season's track
team can count on added strength
from this year's Freshman squad.
While the Varsity was busy win-
ning a triangular meet at Purdue,
the Frosh, who are not allowed to
compete against other teams ac-
cording to a Conference ruling,
held their first time trials of the
outdoor season.
First on the list of outstanding
freshmen performers was Art
Henrie, who ran the 100 yard dash
in 10 seconds flat and sprinted the
220 in 22.4. He came back to clear
the high-jump bar at 6 feet, 2
inches, which was higher than the
winning height at the Purdue
In the half-mile race, Shelton
Murphy had his best time of the
year, running the 880 yards in
2:01.6. Murphy also tied the best
performance in the 440, which he
and Arnold Gowans ran in the
good time of 52.4 seconds.

lect a couple of putts that would
have done the trick.
Kessler Brilliant
Kessler went out in 34 and took
the back nine in 38. His long game
sizzled all day with his drives com-
ing to rest out around the 280
marker and his long approaches
hitting the greens with amazing
The Kessler and Chuck Mac-
Callum duo picked up 2 points
for Michigan while the Spartan
,ombination, Duncan Fisher and
Bob Tansey, was taking home a
lone marker.
Ed Schalon and Doug Beath
teed off in the first foursome
against State's Rex Newman and
Jack Monteer. Schalon continued
to shoot consistant golf and be-
tween himself and Beath socked
away 2%/2 more points for the
home team.
Elliott, Barclay Tough
Dave Barclay and Pete Elliott
white-washed their Spartan op-
ponents in the third match. El-
liott shot a nice 77 while Barclay
took 81 for the 18 hole journey.
Their combined efforts grabbed a
trio of points from Don Jarrard
and Ted Kuzma.
Elliott's short game was par-
ticularly good, getting him out of
serious trouble on a couple of oc-
casions. When his approach
landed in the trap that flanks the
15th green, Elliott got up an iron
full of sand that put the ball
about 18 inches from the cup
then dropped the putt for a par.
Season's Record Shapes Up
Yesterday's victory puts the
team's record at four wins against
a pair of losses. Both losses came
at the hands of southern schools
faced during spring vacation.
Since their return to this natural
habitat the Wolverines have taken
all corners without too much
trouble, the away-meet with OSU

Michigan Title Hopes Brighter
As Taft Earns StartingRole

LOOK OUT BELOW-U.S. trampoline champ, Bob Scoendube,
goes into a front somersault during his minute and a half stint
for the judges.
Trampoline Title Seen
As Personal Achievement

Up until last Saturday, Coach
Ray Fisher of Michigan's baseball
squad, had a serious problem on
his hands.
But Bill Taft came through at
an opportune moment with a
speedy answer. The lanky right-
hander tossed a convincing seven-
hitter against the Buckeyes from
Columbus to build up Michigan's
chances for the Big Nine title
and give Fisher just what he
needed-another starting hurler.
Although there has been no
official word forthcoming from
the diamond mentor, the very
fact that Taft and Art Dole,
Michigan's other starting fling-
er, will not make today's trip
to Toledo for the single con-
test with the University of To-
ledo this evening tells the
fans who the Wolverine starters
in Conference play will be.
Purdue's. Boilermakers will be
Victory Ups
Title Hopes
Of Doherty
Track coach Ken Doherty is
talking a little more optimistically
about the Big Nine situation
after Saturday's impressive twen-
ty point victory over Indiana and
The Maize and Blue had ex-
pected a close call with the much
improved Hoosiers but several
shining Wolverine performances
made it almost a runaway.
Outstanding among Saturday's
bright performances were Val
Johnson's impressive 48.5 in win-
ning the quarter and his 48.3 leg of
the mile relay, George Vetter's
second in the half in 1:56, and
Clay Holland's second in the low
hurdles in 25.6.
In addition Varskin Baybar-
ian surprised everyone with the
best performance of his career
broad jumping 22 feet 7/8 inches.
The Wolverine old faithfuls
Charlie Fonville and Herb Barten
exhibited their superiority by
grabbing a pair of first apiece.
Fonville, suffering from a back
ailment didn't really press in win-
ning the shot with a toss of over
53 feet while Barten had things
his own way in both the mile and
the half.

in Ann Arbor this week-end in an
attempt to crack Michigan's un-
beaten slate in Big Nine competi-
tion. And, just as in the pair of
games against the Bucks, it will
be up to Dole and Taft to keep
the string going.
Taft racked up six strikeouts in
the OSU game. and, what is more
important, had all kinds of stuff
when the going got rough.
In the top of the ninth, with
Michigan leading by a single
run, two outs and a man on
base, Taft got one of State's
most powerful batters, Al Aer-
nie to tap out on an easy roller
to the mound.
Meanwhile, Fisher announced
the contingent that will make to-
day's trip to Toledo. Bud Rankin,
Ed Heikkinen, Pat Morrison, Bob
Fancett and Bob Hicks are the
moundsmen that will be available
for duty.
Leading off for the Wolverines
this afternoon will be Bump El-
liott playing center field. In the
number two slot will be Ralph
Morrison or Paul Veith covering
the left side of the pasture. Ted
Kobrin will follow and will hold
down the keystone sack.
Hammerin' Jack Weisenburg-
er, who banged out two hits
Saturday, will be in the cleanup
spot, playing first. Howie Wikel,
short stop, Dorn Tomasi, second
base, and Bob Chappuis, right
field, will follow in the batting
Harold Raymond or Walt Han-
cock will bat eighth and will be
behind the bat. The probability
is that Heikkinen will start on the
rubber, although Fisher may use
the three inning system that he
employed against Detroit's Titans
last week.
In addition, Willard Baker, Ted
Berce, Hal Morrill, and Bob Wolff,
infielders, will make the trip to
Toledo and will probably see ac-
First sacker Bob Ross of the
Rockets will be the Michigan
flingers' biggest worry. He is cur-
rently leading the team in batting
and runs batted in.
The game will be the first for
the Wolverines under the lights.

Michigan wrestling squad, was
named manager of the Olympic
Wrestling team which will com-
pete this summer against the

'M' Club Wins Dinghv Clash
Michigan's Sailing Club won the Midwestern Dinghy Cham-
pionship Sunday and the right to send two crews to the national
regatta at Annapolis, May 15-16.
Winning over half of the eighteen races, Michigan finished with
a safe lead over its closest rival, Purdue. The Wolverine sailors
secured 108 points, while the rest came in as follows: Purdue, 98;
Notre Dame, 91; Northwestern, 89; Ohio State, 88112; Ohio Wesleyan,
88; Chicago, Michigan State, and Denison.

The distinction of becoming
Michigan's first certain entry in
the fabulous Olympic Games this
summer is not to be for Bob
Schoendube, who surprised every-
body by winning the trampoline
title of the United States in the
National AAU and Olympic try-
outs last Saturday night.
Every other gymnastic deve t
champion will be included in the
American contingent, but since
the trampoline (see cut) is a
comparatively recent innovation,
it will be excluded this year for the
benefit of foreign countries.
Personal Triumph
For Schoendube, however, his
dramatic performance at Penn
State was a personal triumph that
omission from the Games cannot
It was just three years ago-yes-
terday that the trampoline artist
arrived from Manilla, capital of
the Philippine Islands, where
Schoendube was born and raised.
He attended a high school for
children of American govern-
mental employees and dabbled in
such recognized sports as basket-
ball, the pole vault, and baseball.

Then came the war and intern-
ment in the Japanese prison camp,
Santo Tomas.
Time To Spare
It was there that the 24-year-
old phys. ed. junior met Larry
Hebbard, a U. S. treasury member
and a graduate of the University.
With nothing but time on their
hands, Hebbard began to tutor
Schoendube in the fundamentals
of economics and other related
subjects. Hebbard was responsible
for his choice of Michigan.
After three semesters in engine
school, his craze for sports made
him switch to physical education
last year where he met gym coach
Newt Loken. A jack-of-all-sports,
Schoendube gave gymnastics a
whirl and decided he liked the
trampoline best of all. To what
does he owe his success-"Confi-
dence and plain muscle sense."
