'M' Sweeps 6 Events, Sets
4 Records in 100-32 Rout

'M' Linksmen Trounce Illini, Spartans

By HERB NEIL
Michigan trackmen swept six
events and won everything except
the 440 and one-mile relay in
trouncing Wisconsin, 100-32, at
Ferry Field yesterday afternoon in
their initial outdoor home meet
of the season.
Don McEwen added to his list
of records with a 9:15.1 victory in
the two mile, which chopped 3.6
seconds off the Ferry Field mark
set by Don Lash of Indiana in
1937.
* * *
THE SIX SWEEPS came in the
100, 880, high hurdles, low hurdles,
high jump, and broad jump.
Bill Konrad took the 100-yarn1
dash in 9.9 with teammates John
Wilcox and Terry Nulf, two
yards behind, placing second and
third, respectively. In winning
the sprint Konrad clipped a
' tenth of a second off the dual
meet record he set last year.
Both the 120-yard high hurdles
and the 220-yard low hurdles were
all Michigan with Captain Don
Hoover, Walt Atchison, and Jim
Mitchell placing in that order in
each race. Hoover captured the
highs in 14.9 and the lows in 24.4
finishing easily in both races.
* * *
THE WOLVERINES' fourth and
last sweep .on the track came in
the half mile as George Jacobi
edged out Chuck Whiteaker in the
good time of 1:55.8. Herb Neuman
who had forged into the lead with
300 yards left slipped back in the
last 50 yards and finished a yard
behind Jacobi and Whiteaker.
Sam Greenlee, Wisconsin's
highly-rated performer in the
half, took the lead at the start
and held it until Neuman made
his bid. He was no match for the
Wolverine trio in the stretch
drive, however.
The igh jump was won by Bob
Evans with a leap of 6' 2", a new
dual met record for the event.
Lowell Perry cleared 6' 1" to place.
second, while Bud Sexton jumped
six feet for third place.
* * *
HORACE COLEMAN, Perry, and

Ron Soble gave Michigan its sixth
sweep in the broad jump. Coleman
jumped 23' 6" to win, while Perry
did 23' 1" for second place. This
marked the farthest that Perry had
jumped to date.
LeRoy Collins, the Badgers'
440 yard champion in the Big
Ten outdoor meet last spring,
spoiled the Wolverines' bid to
win every event. Collins scored a
victory in the 440 and then pro-
vided Wisconsin with its win-
ning margin in the mile relay.
IN THE MILE RELAY ;Collins
overcame a five yard deficit and
passed Konrad in the last 100 yards
to give the Badgers their second
win of the meet. Dan Hickman had
built up the majority of the five
yard lead on the third leg.
Konrad had previously beaten
Collins in the 220-yard dash in
the time of 22.2 to gain his sec-
ond win of the afternoon. This
was two-tenths of a second bet-
ter than' the previous meet rec-
ord set by Collins last year.
McEwen set his Ferry Field rec-
ord in the two mile with ease, al-
though he finished up with a 62-
second quarter. Bill Hickman took
second over 100 yards behind Mc-
Ewen by virtue of a strong finish
to beat out Walt Deike of Wiscon-
sin.

Special to The Daily
LANSING - Michigan's golfers
stroked to easy triumphs over
Michigan State and Illinois here
yesterday, the Wolverines topping
the Spartans, 2412-11%, and the
Illini, 28-8.
Scores were rather high, but this
can be attributed to the bad weath-
er conditions. The course was rain-
drenched, and cold and high winds
also affected individual scores.
* * *
MEDALIST for the Wolverines
was Dick Evans with a pair of 74's.
Right behind him came Bob Olson
with two 75's. Reggie Myles and
Jack Zinn of Michigan State and
Lowel LeClair of the Wolverines
had identical cards of 74-77-151.
Rounding out the scores for
the Wolverines was Dean Lind
with 78-77-155, John Fraser,
76-78-154, and Hugh Wright,
78-78-156. Despite the fact that
the Wolverines averaged 76.1
strokes per 18-hole round, 4

strokes above their average
against Northwestern last Mon-
day, they were still able to gain
victory with comparative ease.
In the number one threesome,
Olson's 150 bettered by one stroke
Myles' 151 and a 159 by Jerry
Flood of Illinois.
* * *
IN THE SECOND GROUP, Lind
was second behind Zinn's 151 and
ahead of Jerry Rascher who card-
ed 77-84 for a 161 total.
Evans'easily won the number 3
singles with Don Perne, Spartan
captain carding an 81-75 for 156.
Illini Don Cassidy was far be-
hind with 77-82 for 159.
Number four singles found
Fraser defeating both Spartan
Dick Bishop who tallied 82-75 for
157, and Illini Jim McKinzie who
had 158 on rounds of 7&8nd 80.
* * *
SOPHOMORE Lowell LeClair
who has looked very promising
thus far this season easily defeated
his two foes in the number five
group. LeClair's 151 bettered by 10
strokes Spartan Biff Hill's 161
card and was 16 strokes lower than
Illini Bob Wold who had 81-86-
167.
Completing the singles groups
in number six position was Hugh.
Wright who defeated Carl Mosak
of Michigan State by four
strokes, and Jack Lynch of Illi-
nois by 17 strokes. Mosak had
82-78-160 and Lynch carded a
rather poor 86-87-173.

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer seemed
pleased over the performances of
his charges in such adverse weath-
er conditions. The Illini averaged
81.4 strokes per round, the Spar-
tans 77.9.
THE VICTORY for Michigan
over MSC snapped an eight-meet
streak for the Spartans. The loss
was their first of this season.
The Wolverines return to Ann
Arbor to prepare for their next
* meet, a triangular affair with
Michigan State and Ohio State
over the University Course here
next Saturday.
With only one more meet re-
maining after the meet Saturday,
it appears that three schools,
Michigan, Purdue, and Northwests
ern will occupy the favorites',spots
in the Big Ten golf meet. The
Boilermakers hold a decisive 18-9
win over the Wolverines.
* * *
THE WILDCATS, in addition to
playing the Big Ten meet over
their home course, tied the Wol-
verines a week ago, and will cer-
tainly be highly regarded three
weeks from now when they play
host to the Big Ten meet.
The play of Bob Olson, Dick
Evans, and Lowell LeClair has
been gratifying to Katzenmeyer.
With a little luck, and some clutch
golfing by the Wolverines, Michi-
gan may be able to regain the
crown they lost to Purdue last year.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Lou Boudreau's wild
throw home in the 11th inning cost
the Boston Red Sox a game yester-
day and handed rookie pitcher Ray
Herbert of the Detroit Tigers an
8-7 victory, his third straight in a
relief role.
The wild toss by the ex-Cleve-
land manager came after Detroit's
George Kell flied out to left field
with;runners dn second and third
and Boston leading, 7-6.
* * *
JERRY PRIDDY scored from
third after the catch. The relay got.
away from third baseman Vern
Stephens and Boudreau picked it
up and threw wildly to allow Dick
Kryhoski to score all the way from
second.
Priddy homered for the Tigers
as did Bosox first baseman Walt
Dropo as Harry Taylor suffered his
third straight defeat. The Red Sox
were unable to score in the tenth
when they filled the bases with
none out, when Herbert struck out
Boby Doerr and Mike Guerra and
got Taylor on a grounder to Kry-
hoski.
* * *
NEW YORK 17, ST. LOUIS 6

Gumpert came in, retired the side
without a run scoring, and got the
last five men out to preserve Cain's
first win of the season.
CARDINALS 4, PHILADELPHIA 3

Del Wilber, who accounted for
two of Philadelphia's runs with a
home run, made a wild throw that
admitted the Cards' winning run.
Gerry Staley was credited for his
third straight win of the year.
* * *
CUBS 2, BOSTON 0
BOSTON - Cal McLish won a
brilliant mound duel from Johnny

another tallied on a wild pitch by
Sain. McLish allowed only 5 hits.
