Prove Too Much for 'M'

Eleven Recrds Fall in River Rouge Meet

(Special to The Daily)
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Muddy
grounds, weather better suited for
football, and the Purdue baseball
team were too much for the Mich-
igan Wolverines yesterday as they
dropped both ends of a double-
header to the Boilermakers, 5-1
and 2-1.
The double setback was a severe
blow to any hopes the Wolverines
had of successfully defending their
Big Nine title this year.

he was touched for three markers
in the first inning.
Ken Gorgal led off and reach-

Both basketball star Bill Berber-

given free passes. Then a field-
er's choice and successive singles
by Bill Long, Norbert Adams,
and Frank Schwantes drove in
the trio of tallies.
The Boilermakers got their other
two runs in the fifth. Pitcher Mel-

Three local nimrods shot their
way to championships in yester-
day's City Rifle Match at the
ROTC shooting range.
Richard F. Hanson had little
trouble in taking the men's cham-
pionship. He won three of the
day's five matches, and estab-
lished a probable national record
in taking one of them.

382 points out of a possible 400.
Recognition must be received from
the national rifle headquarters at
Washington before the record can

a Michigan student.
Besides Hanson's three match

Burke took the other, and besides
Hanson's record of 382x400, a pos-

the fourth Purdue run with a one-
bagger and Lang came through
again with a timely bingle.
THE LONE Wolverine marker
came in the ninth when Jack Mc-
Donald slammed a home-run.
Henson scattered five Wolver-
ine hits with right fielder Wil-
lard Baker collecting two singles,
and "Lefty" Hal Morrill and Ted
Kobrin each one besides McDon-
ald's hamer.
Bill Taft lost a heartbreaker in
the nightcap which was called at
the end of eight innings because
of darkness. Purdue solved the
lanky righthander for only four
hits, while the Wolverines garner-
ed seven off Bob Hartman.

first inning with Gorgal leading
off with a walk. Berberian went
out, but Chinewicz scratched an
infield single, and Gorgal scored
when Captain Stanley Aders was
thrown out at first.
There was no further scoring
until the top of the eighth when.
Michigan knotted the score on a
long fly by Morrill, sending in
Baker from third. Baker started
the inning with a single, had
advanced to second on a sacri-
fice by Bill Bucholz, and to third
on another one-bagger by Ted
But the Boilermakers came right
back in their turn at bat to tally
the deciding marker.
KEN .GORGAL led of f with a
booming triple. Taft then settled
down to strike out Berberian. He
got Chinewicz out too, but it was
on a long fly to Morrill and Gorgal
scored after the catch. Aders
then struck out and the game was

NO LESS THAN 11 records fell

terday, 10-9, but they had to over-
come a five run deficit in the last
three innings to turn the trick.
Each team scored four runs in
the first inning. The Giants' clus-
ter was due mainly to the gener-
osity of Satchel Paige, who started
for the Indians and promptly
walked the first four batters to
face him.

Roy Campanella led off with a
single, moved to second on a sac-
rifice and was wild-pitched to
third by Frank Hiller. Then Cal

LOS ANGELES-(P)-Michigan
State and Southern California
battled to a 61-61 tie in an inter-
sectional track and field duel yes-
terday before 12,293 fans in Mem-
orial Coliseum.
USC went into the- final event,
the one mile relay, needing a vic-
tory to tie the score. They won
the relay by a wide margin, with
anchorman Bob Chambers of USC

Michigan State's gritty Jack Dia-
netti on the final lap.
The time was 3:17.
MEL PATTON, 1948 National

hind Johnson until 10 yards be-
fore the finish. He kicked through
to win by a foot or less.

in the 440 yard run.
Fred Johnson, national AAU
broad jump champion, hit 25 ft.,
2 in. to easily win this event.

Dianetti and Chambers in the 880
failed to materialize. Both dropped
out after 440 yards. Both trailed
the field, and both, tired from the

selves to anchor the relay teams.
