Cindermen Second to Illini-
MeEwen Sets Two Marks

To Overcome 7-0 Deficit

By JIM PARKER
Two big innings and two bigI
men were too much for Purdue's
Boilermakers at Ferry Field yes-
terday.
With the Wolverines trailing 7-0,
Bob Fancett's three run home run
initiated a six run explosion in the
sixth inning and Leo Koceski's two
run circuit clout administered the
coup de grace in a five run slugfest
in the eighth as Michigan's Big
Ten baseball leaders scuttled Pur-
due, 11-7.
FOR THE TWO Wolverine out-
fielders it was an encore perform-
ance to Friday's 7-6 contest when
Fancett homered, to provide the
margin of victory and Koceski
came up with a crucial diving
catch to preserve that margin.
Michigan's fourth pitcher of
the afternoon, Bob Hicks, who
had been blasted .from the box
in Friday's game, came back to
pitch the final two innings and
received credit for the victory,
his third in Conference play.
The Boilermakers had little
trouble solving starter Ed Gren-
koski as they -poked out four
ground singles in the first inning,
good for two runs, and then rolled
out four more for three counters
in the third that sent the lanky
righthander to an early shower.
AL VIRGONA then went to the
mound and forced Norb Adams to1
hit into a double play. For the
next three frames Virgona gave up
three hits and wos taggedfor the
final two Purdue runs, one of
which resulted from faulty fielding
by his mates.
Then came Michigan's sixth.
Pete Palmer lit the fuse with a
single to right. Wolff drew a
free pass and Fancett blasted
out his long four bagger. Dorr
followed with a hard double to
center.
One out later Bill Bucholz
grounded a single to left and that
was all for Purdue's starter, Bob
Whitmer. Southpaw Eldon Nel-
son came in and unleashed a wild:

pitch that enabled Dorr to score
and sent Bucholz to second.
* * *
KOCESKI walked and Ted Berce
singled home Bucholz. Koceski got
to third on the play and came
home for the sixth run of the in-
ning on Vic Fryling's fly to center.
Bucholz led off the eighth
inning uprising with a single
and then Koceski tore the leath-
er off a 1-1 pitch for his home
run that gave Michigan a one
run lead.
Berce collected his second single
of the day and was sacrificed to
second. Palmer drove in Berce
with a base hit to left, went to
third on Wolff's ground single and
scored on an error on the relay
from left field.
Wolff got to third on the mis-
cue and registered Michigan's fina)
run of the afternoon on Hicks'
single to left.
Washington
Gets Cousin
Of DiMaggio
WASHINGTON - - (P) - If
you read the next paragraph fast
you'll think the Washington Sena-
tors pulled the biggest deal in all
baseball yesterday.
The club obtained Joe DiMaggio
and farmed him out to their Con-
cord, N.C. club.
After a pause to let the shock
settle in, the Senators' farm di-
rector Ossie Bluege added:
"We didn't get the Yankee Clip-
per himself, we got the second
best thing - his second cousin."
That, of course, also mkaes him
a second cousin to Dom DiMaggio,
Boston's great centerfielder, and
also former star Vince.
The new DiMag is an 18-year-
old outfielder f rom Monterey,
Calif. He's a carbon copy of the
35-year-old New York great. Like
his namesake, he stands 6 feet
two inches.

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN - In a tumultu-
ous triangular meet which pitted
the conference foes of Michigan,
Illinois, and Northwestern, the
Wolverine thinclads placed second
to the fighting Illini at the lat-
ter's Memorial Stadium in Cham-
paign, Illinois. ,
The final score was Illinois 73,
Michigan 66, and Northwestern 24.
* * *
THE OUTCOME of the contest,
however, was completely over-
shadowed by the stirring per-
formance of Michigan's Don Mc-
Ewen. Running in both the mile
and two mile runs, the extra-
ordinary Wolverine star not only
won the two races but also blazed
his way to Stadium records in both
events, his one mile run also a
new Michigan Varsity outdoor
record.
The eventual winner of the
meet, however, was not decided
until the conclusion of the one
mile relay, final event on the
program. Art Henrie, running
the anchor leg of the race for
the Wolverines, started out a
yard behind Dick Upton, last
runner in the Illini quartet. The
Michigan star overtook him
with but 50 yards to go, but the
Illinois runner forged ahead 10
yards from the finish line and
snapped the tape two feet in
front of Henrie to give Illinois
the meet.
* * *

Coleman's feat was of special sig-
nificance since it established the
highest mark ever made by a
Negro in Pole Vault competition.
Jim Holland of Northwestern
scored the majority of the Wild-
cat's points by winning the 100,
220 yard dashes and the broad
jump.
Charlie Fonnville come through
as expected for the Wolverines
winning the shot put and discus,
while his teammate, Pete Den-
drinos, placed behind him in the
shot and took third in the discus
throw.

Grande lius
Grid Award
EAST LANSING, Mich.-(P) -
Sonny Grandelius of Muskegon
Heights, who scored both touch-
downs to give the "Green" team a
14-7 win, won "the Most Valuable
Player" award in the Michigan
State intra squad game here yes-
terday.
The "Green" outfit, well salted
with veterans, showed a definite
edge over a "White" team made
up mostly of sophomores.
Grandelius broke away on a
56-yard run in the opening quar-
ter for his first touchdown, and
went over from the one-foot line
for the second "Green" score on
the first play of the final quarter.
Vince Pisano, a sophomore from
New Kensington, Pa., gave Gran-
delius a run for the "Most Valu-
able" honors. Pisano took a pass
from negro tosser Willy Thrower,
another New Kensington product,
in the third quarter and went 22
yards for the only "White" score.
Bill Timmerman of Grand Rap-
ids, who backed up the line for the
"Green" squad, was outstanding
on defense. He intercepted two
"White" passes.
Al Dorow of Imlay City, a quar-
terback shifted over to left half,
did some effective passing from
this position. Jim Ellis of Sag-
inaw showed some dazzling flashes
of speed at right half, and Hank
Minarik of Flint was outstand-
ing among the ends.

The grey steel bleachers of:
Michigan Stadium formed the
background for the fifth major
spring football scrimmage which
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan conduct-
ed yesterday.
For the first time since Ooster-
baan inaugurated the Saturday
afternoon workouts this semester
the squad, composed mainly of
freshmen and sophomores, got the
feel of the turf where some of the
more fortunate will get a chance
to do their stuff next fall. And for
the first time the Michigan mentor
expressed dissatisfaction with the
performances of his charges.
* * *
"WE HAD A number of boys
that looked sharp," said Ooster-
baan, "but our tackling was bad,
our ball handling was poor, and
the pasing looked very weak in
spots."
Oosterbaan did discover one
thing yesterday afternoon, and
it may well be one of the most
valuable finds he has made thus
far. That is a kicker in the per-
son of Bill Billings, a freshman
quarterback from Flint. Billings
gets 180 pounds behind his trys,
and if he can punt consistently
as well as he did yesterday he
may find himself handling a
good share of the booting next
fall.
The boys that "looked sharp"
included Tom McCoy, a Benton
Harbor defensive half, letterman
Don Peterson, who worked both I
the fullback and tailback positions,l

* * *
FRANK HOWELL, the hotshot
first year man from Muskegon,
dressed for the first time this
week and turned in a showing
which belied the fact that he had
just recovered from an injury.
The injuries, incidentally, are
a point of major concern to
Oosterbaan and his staff. Dick
Strozewski, Emil Morlock, Larry
LeClair, and Bob Hurley, all
highly touted freshman pros-
pects, and letterman Dick Mc-
Williams have been unable to
work this week because of ail-
ments of one sort or another.
None are seriously incapacitated,
but all may miss the crucial
workouts of the coming week.
"We have plenty to learn, espe-
cially things like leaning and tip-
ping, and you can quote me on
that," concluded Oosterbaan after
yesterday's three-hour session.
"We took the gang to the Stadium
to give them a lift, and we are
coming along, but we still have
plenty of ground to cover."
The warmest weather of the
spring'may have been one factor
which kept some of the varsity
hopefuls from hitting their usual
peaks.
The latest hair styles,
cut and blended to please.
Tonsorial queries invited.
