"We've received good pitching
3o far, but we'll need better field-
irg and hitting support." So spoke
VMichigan baseball coach Ray
Risher in summarizing the vaca-
tion southern trip which saw the
team win five starts, lose a pair
and gain a disputed tie with Vir-,
The Maize and Blue victories
were over Maryland (4-0), Quan-
tico Marines (4-2), Richmond
(15-3), Navy (5-4) and VMI (18-
4), while the losses were inflicted
by George Washington (5-4) and
Washington and Lee (6-3).
SOUTHPAW DICK SMITH was
the only two-game winner, throw-
ing a three-hitter against Mary-
land and giving up four safeties
to the Navy outfit.
The other victories were
pitched by Bill Taft, who also
hurdled the d(eadlock against
Michigan trackmen took ad-
vantage of a warm sun and dry
track as they indulged in their
first official outdoor practice yes-
The Wolverine thinclads had
been running outdoors whenever
weather permitted since tho end
of the indoor season, but this was
the first time that Coach Don
Canham has had all of his
charges outdoors simultaneously.
THE LONG LIST of injuries
which plagued the cinder squad
throughout the indoor season has
been cut down to one name-Herb
The blonde Olympic middle
distance star who has been
bothered by a bad foot all sea-
son is still a question mark in
the Wolverine track picture.
Most of the varsity trackmen
remained in Ann Arbor to work
out during the spring recess while
several others came from nearby
homes to join in the drills.
First outdoor meet for the Wol-
verines will be held April 27
against the University of Cali-
fornia. The Bears, boasting terrific
depth in the dashes and middle
distances, will be here for the only
twilight meet of the season.
Virginia, a 10-inning affair, Bud
Rankin and Bob Hicks.
Dave 'Settle pitched for eight
innings against George Washing-
ton, but was'relieved when Pete
Palmer batted for him in the
ninth frame, an inning in which
the Maize and Blue scored two
runs to gain a 4-3 edge.
* * *
BUT PAT MORRISON, pitching
for the Wolverines in the last half
of the ninth, walked the first two
men to face him and then un-
corked a wild pitch.
Coach Fisher quicikly put in
Rankin, who had thrown a four-
hitter the previous day against
Richmond, and the southpaw
put out the firg with only one
marker crossing the plate. In
the tenth, however, the General
third baseman singled with two
out to drive home the winning
run from second.
Rankin started the contest with
Washington and Lee, and was fol-
lowed on the mound by Settle and
Morrison in that order.
THE SOUTHERNERS combed
the offerings of the Wolverine
moundesmen for 11 safeties, in-
oluding a double and triple, and
the Maize and Blue pitchers were
also the victim.h of some very
sloppy fielding as their mates
made seven miscues.
In the Virginia contest, a dis-
puted run by the Cavaliers in
the eighth inning forced the vis-
itors to settle for a 1-1 deadlock.
For seven frames Taft and
Buddy Charles, the Virginia hurler
locked horns in a scoreless game.
AFTER CHARLES had held the
Maize and Blue in the top of the
eighth, righthander Tom Phillips
walked and was sacrificed to sec-
Leftfielder Dave Carr beat out
a slow roller to shortstop and,
after Taft got by the next batter,
Pitcher Charles walked up to
Three times he tired to bunt
and three times he missed the ball.
But, after missing the third time,
blocked Wolverine receiver Hal
Raymond from tagging Phillips,
who was racing in from third.
Umpire Bill Mylam, apparently,
unsure of his ground, sent the
runner back to third from where
he came home when Ted Kobrin
messed up Bill Berner's grounder.

Announcement of the various
grade averages was obviously di-
rected at the criticism which has
been levelled at extra-curricular
activities to the effect that medio-
cre scholarship records are a di-
rect result of those activities
which are time-consuming and are
of meaningful chlarac i r.
THE AWARDS were based on
four standards, namely: moral
character and good citizenship;
scholastic ability and interrectual
capacity and achievement; physi-
cal ability and vigor; and capacity
and promise of leadership and suc-

Michigan's Ed. Buchanan came
through again with flying colors
as he placed first on the tramp-
poline in the Midwestern Open
Gymnastics Meet held April 2 at
the Navy Pier in Chicago.
In team scoring, Coach Newt
Loken's men finished fifth with
19 points. Leading the field was

points, followed by Michigan

ALTHOUGH Buchanan paced
the field of entries in the tram-

in the tumbling contest and set-
tled for fourth in parallel bars.
