Michigan (6)

AB

By MERLE LEVIN
It's Western Conference Cham-
pionship time again and three
powerful Wolveriine a~tlhletic
squads will hit the road this week-
end to seek new laurels for the al-
ready top-heavy Michigan victory
garland.
Led by the "Terrible Twosome"
-Chuck Fonville and Herb Bar-
ten-the Maize and Blue Thin-
clads head for Madison where they
will face the unenviable task of
whipping Ohio State's tremendous
aggregation if they wish to annex
the outdoor track title.
The Buckeyes have one of the
greatest squads to be seen in
Big Nine circles in years, plus
one of the nation's outstanding
individual stars in the person of
versatile Lloyd Duff who broad
jumps, pole vaults, runs the
high and low hurdles and cap-
tains the team in his spare time.
Besides Duff the Bucks have a
crackerjack mile relay team that
already holds two decisions over
Michigan this year and two out-
standing middle-distance men in
the persons of Harry Cogswell and
Mal Whitfield the lad with the
tremendous stride who ran a bril-
liant anchor lap in the mile relay
against Michigan here last week.
Illinois, led by high jumper
Dwight Eddleman, will be another'
power to reckon with and Wiscon-
sin has a couple of topnotchers in
miler Don Gehrmann and pole
vaulter Tom Bennett but if Bar-
ten, Fonville, Dolan, Johnson and
Co. can rack up enough points to
lick the Buckeyes they will prob-
ably be able to hand coach Ken
Doherty a fine going-away pres-
ent.
Evanston will be buzzing with
athletes as Northwestern plays
host to the Western Conference
tennis and golf championships.
Led by Andy (Ace) Paton the
Wolverine tennis squad, undefeat-

ed in Big Nine play and possessors
of a seven game winning streak
will be a strong choice to dump
powerful Northwestern's defend-
ing champions.
And on the beautiful North-
western golf course, Michigan's
defending champions, led by Ed
Schalon and NCAA-titlist Dave
Barclay, hope to successfully
defend their crown against the
drives and putts of Northwest-
ern and Purdue.
Another Big Nine title will also
be decided this weekend when Illi-
nois' league -leading baseball
squad meets Ohio State and Mich-
igan meets tail-end Northwestern.
A victory by OSU would probably
assure Michigan of at least a title
tie.
But by now, the Wolverine title
story becomes repetitious.

Chatham Hadley Victim
As Olsen Nets First Win
By HERB RUSKIN
(Special to The Daily)
CHATHAM, Ont., May 24-Snapping a two game losing streak,
Michigan's baseball squad pounded out a 12 hit 6-2 victory over Chat-
ham Hadley here today.
It was opening day for the Chatham squad, two year's Canadian
Intermediate champions, and a crowd of better than 1200 was on hand
to watch Victoria Day celebrations.
Although the Wolverines took an early one run lead, they had to
come from behind in later in- --

things off by beating out hit to
shortstop, and then stealing
second. Ralph Morrison brought
him home with a sharp single

To Take Lynn Reiss Trophy

By DICK HURST
Out of the Trophy Case and into
the M' Club Room went the Lynn
Reiss Memorial Trophy Sunday
after the former M' golfers had
nudged the present Wolverine
linksters 41-40 at the Barton Hill

Although it was the Oldsters
who won possession of the Cup, it
was Rog Kessler, varsity golfer,
who captured medal honors for
the afternoon to win the first
prize, a bread toaster.
Kessler Scores a 71
Kessler toured the course in a
scanty 71 strokes to sweep all
three points from his opponent,

Though stripped in the point de-
partment, his medal score was
enough to reclothe him with a new
shirt, the second place award.
In such a wild contest, the mar-
gin of victory could be attributed
to any number of putts that didn't
drop all the way down the line, but
Coach Katzenmeyer, playing for
the alumni, maintains that it was
his 11/2 points swiped from Jack
Kunkle, freshman golfer, that
gave the ancients their triumph.

Katzenmeyer nipped Kunkle by
a stroke taking a 74 while Kunkle
was taking 75; each posted 11/2

Dave Barclay took the measure
of Ben Smith, getting 2%/2 points

to use 80 strokes in making the
circuit.
Playing his usual consistent
game Ed Schalon cdept in with
the leaders shooting a 74 for one
of the better rounds of the day.

SANDWICHhEngland, May 24
-W)PI-Dick Chapman of Pine-
hurst, N.C., carried his challenge
for the British Amateur Golf
Championship grimly through the
first round today with a squeaky
1 up victory.

The Hadley's got this one back
in their half of the inning and
added one for good measure. After
Pitcher Hugh Colby had bounded
out third to first and Tubby Bath-
urst went down on strikes, Ozzie
Suitor got Chatham's first hit of
the game, a sharp single to cen-
ter.
He took second on a passed
ball and then, when Murray
Williams was called safe at first
by the umpire after he had been
tagged by first sacker Jack
Weisenburger, he scored the ty-
ing run. After a five-minute ar-
gument, Chatham's first base-
man 'Flat' Chase drove in their
last run with a hard hit double
to left center.
The Wolverines moved back into
the lead in the fifth, combining
three hits and a hit batsman for
two runs. Again Elliott started
things off, this time with a sharp

blow to left. Morrison singled to
right, but Elliott was nailed at-
tempting to go to third on the
hit.
Morrison then stole second and
after Ted Kobrin had been hit for
the second time in the game, the
pair worked a successful double
steal. Weisenburger grounded out
to the pitcher, with both runners
holding their bases. Jack McDon-
ald brought then home with his
second double of the day, to give
the Wolverines a 3-2 margin.
The sixth frame was next on
the Wolverines' list, when they
added one more to their total.
Hal Raymond walked with one
out and then, by way of helping
himself, Olsen fired a double
over the centerfielder's head to
score Raymond.
The next inning, Michigan
made it 5-2, McDonald again pro-
viding the scoring punch. Kobrin
walked to lead off, but was forced
at second by Weisenburger. The
first baseman immediately stole
second and then came across Mc-I
Donald's third hit of the after-
noon.
Michigan added its last run in
the ninth, when Tomasi walked
with two out, stole second and
came across on Willard Baker's
single to left.
