er in the third inning and Pete
Palmer's four runs batted in. Bill
Bucholz, Hal. Morrill and Bob
Wolff each got two singles.
Starting pitcher for the Maize
and Blue, right hander Bob
Hicks got credit. for his second
Conference victory, although he
had to be relieved by Dave
Settle in the sixth inning
Indiana's Jim McGee, who
fanned ten Wolverines in the first
five innings he pitched, was the
loser.
* * *
BUCHOLZ started the damage
in Michigan's four-run fourth
inning by singling to center, Ko-
ceski then slammed a 2-2 pitch
to the tennis courts and beat the
relay home with a head first dive
to the plate, for his four bagger.
Morrill then rapped out a
single and scored on Palmer's
double down the right field line.
Wolff followed with a single
that drove in Palmer with the
final run of the inning.
The Hoosiers came back in the
sixth to solve Hicks for their only
four hits and all their runs.
LOU WATSON homered to open
the inning and hits by Harry Rit-
ter and John Gorkis, a walk to
McGee and Woody Litz' single
produced two more runs and that
: was all for Hicks.

Settle entered the game with
men on first and third and got
Bill Brabender to pop up for
the final out. For three frames
after that Settle allowed but
one Hoosier to get on base
Three hits and an error gave
vichigan four more runs in the
seventh. Ralph Morrison doubled,
went to third on Morrill's infield
out and was squeezed home on
Palmer's bunt.
WOLFF then singled over sec-
ond base, Bob Fancett walked and
Gerry Dorr blasted a single
through the box that Ritter bob-
bled to allow all three Wolverines
to score.
In Michigan's eighth McGee
went to the showers after walk-
ing Bucholz and giving up a
double to Koceski.
But relief pitcher Bill Sirka
walked pinch hitter Ted Berce
to fill the bases and then was
tagged by Palmer for a hard single
to right field that drove in the
final two Wolverine runs.

Michigan's golfers are winless
this season, having dropped three

NORTHWESTERN, fifth finish-
er in the conference last year,
comes to town with three letter-
men and a flock of newcomers.
The Wildcats are headed by Capt.
Chuck Steingraber, with Bob Rei-
land and Jimmy Love, the remain-
ing pair of lettermen.
So far this season, the Wild-
cats have been successful reg-
istering victories over Iowa and
the University of Detroit. In the
Detroit meet, Steingraber beat
the Titans' number one golfer,
Sam Kocsis, although the score
was not exceptional.
Love and Reiland round out the
second and third singles spots
with newcomers filling the other
three positions.
The match, scheduled to start
at 9 a.m. will be played on the
basis of best ball play in the
morning and individual match
score in the afternoon. The after-
noon round starts at 1:30.
Tomorrow will be the first of
three busy days at home for the
Maize and Blue linksmen as the
Wolverines, weather permitting,
will meet University of Detroit on
Tuesday and Michigan State on
Wednesday.

CHICAGO - (A) - Outfielder
Dick Wakefield yesterday refused
to join the Chicago White Sox
after the club obtained him from
the New York Yankees but re-
jected his demand to make up a
$5,300 Yankee paycut.
Long distance phone wires buz-
zed between Wakefield in Wash-
ington and Sax general-manager
Frank Lane this morning. The liet
result was that Lane called off,
temporarily, yesterday's deal with
the Yanks for Wakefield in ex-
change for undisclosed cash and
outfielder John Ostrowski.
* * *
WAKEFIELD wanted his pre-
sent Yankee salary of $17,000 hik-
ed back to the $22,500 he got from
the Detroit Tigers before he was
swapped last winter for Yankee
first sacker Dick Kryhoski.
Wakefield, a 6-foot, 4-inch
American League enigma the
past few seasons, said the pay-
cut must be restored or the Sox
could do without him.
Lane retorted the boost was out

and the Sox WOULD do without
him. The Sox boss said the club
had negotiated for his Yankee
contract, as is, and not his De-
troit contract.
* * *
HOWEVER, few people are bet-
ting Wakefield won't show up in
White Sox uniform in a day or
two. The Sox wanted Wakefield
especially for tomorrow's doubl-e
header here with Detroit to send
the former Chicago high school
star against his old Tiger mates
as insurance for a good sabbath
gate.
At New York, the Yankee
front office offered Wakefield a
plane ticket to Chicago and urg-
ed him to talk things over per-
sonally with Lane.
Wakefield had appeared twice
as a pinch-hitter for the Yankees,
banging out one hit. He is as-
sured a regular berth, at least for
a while, in a Sox outfield which
also would include Gus Zernial
and Dave Philley.
THE 28-YEAR-OLD Wakefield
has lost considerable luster since
he set the American League on
fire in 1943, a year out of the Uni-
versity of Michigan. Some say
apathy developed because he was
riding the Tiger bench. Others
say it was the other way around.
Onslow's comment was turn-
about on a recent reported dis-
cussion of a possible Yankee deal
in which he was supposed to have
said: "Lindell (outfielder Johnny
Lindell) can't move off a dime.
Wakefield won't. The right field
fence is only 298 feet away from
home plate in Yankee Stadium and
still Wakefield can't break into
the lineup."
