Wolverines Face Illinois
On Home Field Today
By KEN BIALKIN
Michigan plays host to the co-
holders of the Western Conference
baseball crown this afternoon as
league leading Illinois moves into
Ann Arbor for a two game series
with the Wolverines.
This afternoon's game will start
at 3:30 p.m. on the Ferry Field
diamond while Saturday's tilt is
scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
THE TWO GAME series re-
news one of the hardest fought
baseball rivalries in the Big Nine
as the Wolverines seek to strength-
en a record that includes only two
victories in six Conference games.
Wolverine coach Ray Fisher
indicated the starting lineup for
Michigan will be the same as in
previous games with one change,
Leo Koceski will replace the
slumping Hal Morrill in right
Willard Baker and Ralph Mor-
rison resume their duties in left
field and center field, respectively,
to complete the outfield.
THE INFIELD consists of Jack
McDonald, first base; Bill Buch-
olz, second base; Bob Wolff, short-
stop; and Ted Kobrin, third base.
Captain Hal "Tubby" Raymond
will do the receiving for the Wol-
Fisher is still doubtful wheth-
er he will start Bill Taft or Dick
Smith on the mound. Both
pitchers have complained of
sore arms lately. Taft is a victim
of a strained elbow and Smith
has a sore shoulder.
For the Illini, Coach Wally
Roettger will send to the mound
either Stan Feldman, slat-like)
right hander or southpaw Hor-
ace Tangman. Tangman, with a
record of two conference wins and
no losses to his credit, is leading
the Conference in strikeouts, hav-
ing registered twenty-two.
Michigan, with a Conference
record of two wins and four losses,
is now in sixth place in Confer-
ence standings. The Wolverines
find themselves in seventh place
in team batting, with an average
Only four Michigan hitters have
,onference batting averages over
.250. Jack McDonald is currently,
slamming the ball at a .389 clip
while Ted Kobrin is hitting .313.
Willard Baker is at the .304 mark
while Bob Wolff is batting .286.

Start 'em with a bang-that's
the best way to start all runners.
And that's the way Art Henrie
is starting his first collegiate out-
door track season.
THE WOLVERINE sprinter is
wasting no time in finding some
of the nation's fastest sprint com-
petition to run against. Only last
week he met California's Donnie
Anderson in a dual meet, and
downed the Pacific Coast dash
champ in both the 100-yard dash
and the 220. Anderson has run
the short sprint in :09.6.
Tomorrow Henrie faces three
of the best sprinters the Big
Nine can offer when the Wol-
verines journey to Bloomington
for a triangular meet with In-
diana and Purdue.
Indiana has a sure bet for a
win in the 100 tomorrow with
Conference champ Charlie Peters.,
Purdue has two stand-out dash-
men in Hal Omer and Chuck May.j
Omer, a sophomore, has already
established himself in the Big Nine
with a win over Peters in the in-
door 60-yard dash championship.
HARD GOING - Art Henrie,
sophomore sprinter, will meet
three of the Western Confer-
ence's top-notch dashmen to-
