Grenkoski Victor as'M'
Gets Third Big Ten Win

1

By BOB SANDELL
Eddie Grenkoski coasted to his
second Big Ten triumph yesterday,
as the Wolverine baseballers romp-
ed to an easy 10-3 victory over
Indiana's.Hoosiers at Ferry Field.
It was Michigan's third straight
conference win in three tries, and
it strengthened their grip on first
place.
THE WOLVERINES handed
Grenkgski a four run lead in the
second inning and he had little
trouble handling the Hoosiers af-
ter that.
Little Gerry Dorr and Bob
Fancett led Michigan's ten hit
attack on three Indiana hurlers.
Dorr's triple drove in the first
three tallies, while Fancett had
two singles in his four trips to
the plate.
Peter Palmer started the second
inning assault with a base on balls.
Shortstop Bob Wolff beat out a
beautiful bunt past the Hoosier
pitcher, Bob Tosheff, and Fancett
drove out his first hit to load the
sacks.
DORR STEPPED up and sent
what looked like a mere single over
second base, but the ball took a
bad hop past the centerfielder and
Dorr raced all the way to third.
He scored the fourth run a little
later when Bill Bucholz bunted
and was thrown out at first.
Indiana got two of the runs
back, in the fourth. With one
out Bill Brabender worked Gren-
koski for a pass. John Phillips
beat out an infield hit and then
the bases became full when
Michigan's Hal Morrill muffed
John Kyle's grounder.
Catcher John Gorkis then slap-
ped a one-bagger to right to chase
in Brabender and Phillips. Tosheff
bounced into a double play to end
the threat.
IT BECAME 6-2 in the fifth
when the Wolverines combined
two singles and two walks to chase
Tosheff from the contest. Gren-
koski and Leo Koceski both sin-
gled. After Ralph Morrison and
Morrill both walked to force in a
run, Bert Weber replaced the Hoo-
sier starting hurler.
Koceski then scored on Pal-
mer's pop to the second base-
man. Leo's hit, incidentally,
kept his batting streak going.

He has+

games.

collected at least one hit
of the Wolverine's 13

Kyle doubled with two away in
the sixth. It was a high fly along
the right field foul line that Fan-
cett just missed grabbing. Kyle
scored when Dorr let Gorkis' boun-
der go through into left field.
THE WOLVERINES got that
one back in the seventh on a walk
to Morrison, a sacrifice by Morrill,
and a ground single to center by
Palmer.
In the eighth three more Wol-
verines crossed the plate, on
hits by Dorr, Bucholz, and Mor-
rison along with a walk and an
error.
Grenkoski got better as the game
progressed, allowing only one hit
after the fifth and retiring 11 of
the last 12 men.
Eddie struck out five Hoosiers
and walked two over the route.
This afternoon's finale begins at
2:00 p.m., with Bob Hicks slated
to hurl for the Maize and Blue.

STRETCH OUT-Lanky "Lefty" Morrill, the Wolverines' first baseman, makes a long stretch to take
a cross-diamond toss and put out Will Litz, Indiana second baseman in the third inning of yesterday's
baseball game at Ferry Field. Morrill put the diminutive Hoosier out three times as the Fishermen
won their third straight Conference victory, 10-3. Both Morrill and Litz went hitless for the
afternoon but the Wolverines outslugged the Cream and Crimson, 10 to six.

Wolverines
Meet Titans
In Net Start
Facing uncertain weather and
an uncertain future Michigan's
tennis team takes court Against
the Titans of the University of De-
troit in the season opener at Fer-
ry Field's varsity courts, 2 o'clock
this afternoon.
Concerning t h e unfavorable
weather, there was a solution: the
meet would be moved indoors to
the Intramural Building, hard-
wood courts if the elements were
obnoxious.
* * *
THE FUTURE OF the team
through a long, hard conference
season was less determinable.
As things look, even the line-
up is uncertain. Al Hetzeck, Don
MacKay, and Dick Lincoln are
battling it out for the number
one, two and three slots.
Hetzeck was last years number
two man operating under Andy
Paton. MacKay spent most of the
last year at number four and five.
Lincoln has shown great improve-
ment from the time he played
number six singles.
STEVE BROMBERG will han-
dle number four singles, followed
by Ross Herron and Bob Stahl,
and Len Brumm who are still
thrashing it out for the five andI
six spot.
Bromberg is up from last
year's frosh squad and has
looked good in practice. The ab-
sence of a spring tour makes the
picture of Michigan's chances
all the more incomplete.
Detroit comes to Ann Arbor
wagging a won two, lost one rec-
ord behind them.

Union Enters
Big Ten Pin
Tournament
In addition to sponsoring Mich-
igan's six-man-.representation in
the Big Ten Bowling Tournament
to be held today at Purdue, the
Union has scheduled a variety of
events on its sports agenda for
this afternoon and evening.
Finals in ping-pong, pool and
billiards are slated to start at 1:30
p.m. with trophies and cues being
awarded to the winning finalists.
* * *
THE SIX-MAN bowling team
was organized by the Union with
the Big Ten Tournament specifi-
cally in mind. Picked on the ba-
sis of 30 league games, the six
men who registered the highest
averages are (with their averages
in parentheses):
Phil Gesner (183); Jim Dows-
ley (182); Ed Isaac (180) ; Hank
leBost (179); George Waters
(178), and Bill Kramp (177).
These men will be at Purdue's
Memorial Union this afternoon to
representent the University in the
tournament.
Highlighting the evening's at-
traction will be an exhibition
three-cushion straight rail bil-
liards contest, in which Professor
Harry Carver of the Mathematics
Department will oppose the win-
ner of the afternoon finals.

Wolverine Sailors Face
Irish on Whitmore Lake

M' Four Mile Foursome
Second in Drake Relays

r
v

The Wolverine Sailing Club,
fresh from a victory in the Michi-
gan Invitational Regatta last week,
will sail against the Notre Dame
tars in the first dual meet of the
season at Whitmore Lake today.)
Though the Fighting Irish fin-J
ished two places behind the Mich-
igan boatmen in the recent re-
gatta, this meet shapes up with
both teams conceded an equal
chance of coming out victorious.
* * *
THIS IS BECAUSE dual meets
differ considerably from regattas.
In a dual encounter the two com-
peting schools have several crews
sailing in each race. This makes
team co-operation the most im-
portant factor in all the events.
On the other hand, since ev-
ery school has only one crew
entered in each race of a re-
gatta, victory depends complete-
ly on individual achievement.
Team meets are invaluable for
both clubs in that they show how
well the individual members of
the team race in actual competi-
tion.
* * *
BOTH CLUBS therefore use as
many men as possible and rotate
them in each race. Notre Dame
has sent 12 tars to the meet, while
the Wolverines will use any mem-

ber of the sailing club who wants
to race, in at least one event.
The meet will start at 9 a.m.
and if the wind is good the races
should be completed by 1 p.m., at
which time each will run elimina-
tions to nick the men who will sail
in the Midwestern Regional eli-
minations next week.
Softball Tilts

Sports Scene
Despite the elements Intra-
Mural competition moved along at
a swift pace this week with games
in all softball divisions.
Fraternity softball lead the way
with five games played in both the
social and professional divisions.
HANK KREMER blasted a home
run to pace Sigma Alpha Epsilon
to a 12-8 defeat over Alpha Epsi-
lon Pi. Sigma Nu came from be-
hind to beat Theta Kappa Epsi-
lon, 7-4.
Chi Psi edged out Kappa Sig-
ma, 8-4. Al Silberberg cleaned
the bases with a four-master,
but it was all in a losing cause.
Omega Psi Pho squeezed by Al-
pha Tau Omega, 5-4, in five inn-
ings. Phi Kappa Sigma was un-
able to score a run as they took
a 9-0 count at the hands of Phi
Delta Theta.
* * *
BURT SHIFFMAN blasted a ho-
mer for Kappa Nu a sthey took it
on the chin from Delta Chi, 9-3.
Three remaining tilts were
contested with Delta Sigma Del-
ta trouncing Sigma Delta Chi
15-3, Phi Chi downing Alpha
Kappa Kappa 12-6, and Phi
Sigma Delta taking Zeta Beta
Tau 10-7.
In horseshoe results thus far
Chi Psi has defeated Phi Sigma
Kappa 3-0 and Sigma Chi has
whitwashed Delta Sigma Phi by
the same score.
Three tennis matches have been
played with the following results:
Beta Theta Phi 2, Sigma Phi Ep-
silon 1; Psi Upsilon 2, Triangle 1;
and Sigma Alpha Mu 2, Theta Del-
ta Chi 1.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

By GEORGE FLINT
Special to The Daily
DES MOINES, IOWA-Michi
gan's highly touted four-mile re-
lay team fell victim to O' Man
Weather and the superior run-
ning of the Kansas University
quartet as the annual Drake Uni-
versity Relays got underway here
yesterday.
The Wolverine foursome of
Charlie Whitaker, Aaron Gordon,
Justin Williams, and Don McEaw-
en received an anything-but-warm
welcome from the weather as a
combination of rain, snow, sleet
and hail swept over the site of the
two-day carnival, and the Kansas
four-mile contingent proved to
be better mudders to win in the
slow time of 17:50.0.
* * *
OHIO STATE and Illinois fol-
lowed the second-place Maize and
Blue across the finish line in that
order.
Yesterday's only other Wol-
verine entries - hurdlers Jim
Mitchell, Walter Atchison, and
Don Hoover -- failed to qualify
for the 120-yard high sticks
finals.
Wisconsin's D o n Gerhmann
splashed to a 1:53.5 anchor half
mile as his team won the Univer-
sity sprint medley relay in 3:28.5.
Byrl Thompson of Minnesota
fell below his usual standard in
the discus throw, but still manag-
ed to win with a toss of 158 feet,
6 3/8 inches. Thompson holds the
Drake Relays record at 170 feet,
3 inches, and is the defending Big
Ten discus champion.
McGUIRE OF MISSOURI led
a mediocre field across the tape
in the two-mile run, posting a
9:16.7 mark. He led the second-
place finisher, teammate Fox, by
$0 yards of mire-like track.
Jim Holland of Northwestern
was a surprise loser in the broad
jump, as Jerome Biffle of Den-
ver leaped 24 feet, 11 inches
to take the event. Holland's best
leap was 23 feet, 2 5/8 inches.
The field of events, particularly
the broad jump, were hampered
by a blanket of snow which cov-
ered the pits. Meet officials had
to use a flame thrower to thaw
out the frozen sawdust.
No relief is in sight for today's
events, and a continuance of the
dearth of record-breaking per-
formances is expected.
Michigan's distance m e d le y
quartet of Bill Konrad, Gordon,

Whitaker, and McEwen will be
out to avenge yesterday's defeat
in the four-mile event against a
field which will include a very
strong Wisconsin combo, headed
by the ever-present Gerhmann.
Charlie Fonille of Michigan
will renew acquaintances with big
John Helwig of Notre Dame in
the shot put in another of today's
featured events.
Chicago Gives
Player, Cash
For Wakefield4
CHICAGO- (P) -The Chicago
White Sox yesterday announced
a deal for outfielder Dick Wake-
field of the New York Yankees,
involving outfielder Johnny Os-
trowski of the White Sox and an
unannounced sum of cash.
Wakefield,, acquired by the
Yankees from the Detroit Tigers
last winter in a swap for first
sacker Dick Kryhoski, will fly
here to join the White Sox in
Sunday's double-header against
the Tigers.
* * *
THE WHITE SOX said Ostrow-
tki will report to the Yankees'
Kansas City Blue's farm club.
A White Sox spokesman de-
clined to reveal the amount of
money going to the Yankees for
Wakefield, who was signed by
the Tigers in 1941 for areported
$52;000 bonus, highest ever paid
an untried rookie at the time.
The Tigers lured Wakefield
from College ranks while he was
attending the University of Mich-
igan.
Now Wakefield returns to play
in his home town. He presumably
will be rushed directly into the
sagging White Sox lineup, getting
the right field assignment with
Dave Philley shifting from there
to centerfield.

By BILL CONNOLLY
Wolverine gridders will toil
through their second weekly three-
hour scrimmage today, as Head
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan contin-
ues to stress observations of new-
comers in his spring drills.
As in past years, the Michigan
football coaches have expressed
the feeling that spring practice is
designed primarily to provide an
opportunity for newcomers and
holdovers from frosh fnd Junior-
Varsity squads to display their res-
pective abilities.
* * *
INDICATING the intense inter-
est of the candidates for next fail's
varsity team, Oosterbaan pointed
out that more than the usual
average of spring players are
sticking with the squad.
Michigan's initial turnout of
over 150 men was the largest
reported in the Big Ten, and it
is significant that close to 100
of these men are still reporting
to daily practices.
Sideline observers feel that this
fact indicates that the sense of
competition for positons regard-
ed as "open" is still very keen, with
all candidates fighting hard to
gain the hoped-for spots.
* * *
IN THE FIFTEEN days of prac-
tice to date, some outstanding ta-
lent has turned up, principally
holdovers from Wally Weber's
freshman team of last fall.
Noteable backfield candidates
are Frank Howell of Muskegon,
Ted Toper from East Chicago,
Ind., and Ypsilanti's Dave Hill.
In addition to these freshmen,
a 19-year old Monroe junior, Jim
Eldridge, is showing great promise

in the tailback slot. Eldridge runs
and passes with speed and is quick
to start from his position, much
in the manner of Gene Derricotte,
former Wolverine star.
* * *
LINE CANDIDATES who have
displayed excellent possibilities
thus far are center Emil Mohr-
lock of Grand Rapids, Dick Stro-
zewski from South Bend, Ind.,
guard Bob Timm of Toledo and
ends Bud Reem from Detroit and
Lowell Perry, formerly a star half-
back at Ypsi Central.
Oosterbaan has strategically
shifted fullback Roger Zatcoff,
208-pound freshman from Ham-
tramack, to the center slot. In
addition to his defensive work
as a linebacker, Zatcoff has been
filling in offensively at this pos-
ition.
Since the stress is decidedly
placed on the younger men, only
a scattering of lettermen have re-
ported for practice, and most of
them are only working out on a
part-time basis.
AMONG THESE are Don Peter-
son, Dick McWiliams, Tom Kel-
sey, Gene Hinton, Carl Kreager,
John Hess and quarterback Bill
Putich.
T h e quarterback problem,
which is confronting most- of
the Conference's coaches, is
boosted at Michigan by two
sophomores - Mark Scarr of
Barbertown, Ohio and Bill Bill-
ings from Flint.
Pete Palmer, senior who won a
Jayvee award last fall for his
signal-calling, is competing on the
Wolverine baseball team, and is
not available for spring drills.
