By TED PAPES
A scattered stadium crowd of
about 2,000 watched Michigan
wind up its spring football drills
yesterday in a full-scale scrim-
mage between the Blues and the
Whites.
The Blue Team, made up of
top varsity prospects, pounded out
a 35-7 victory over the less for-
midable White eleven.
BOTH SQUADS made several
errors but the winners found a
successful balance between run-
ning and passing attacks to power
five touchdown excursions.
On the third play of the game
Don Zanfagna, playing left half
for the Blues, hit Don Oldham
with a pass that sent the fleet
wingback racing to the enemy
eight yard line covering 52 yards,
but a fumble on the next play
cost a possible score.
Shortly thereafter Tom Wither-
spoon fumbled a White punt on his
own 12 and the Paleshirts recover-

ed to convert the misplay into six
points. Ray Kenaga pushed it
across from the eight on two cracks
at the Blue line, and Bob Topp
booted the extra point to give the
Reserves a 7-0 edge.
* * *
THE BLUES CAME right back'
to score on a drive that covered
58 yards in 14 plays culminating
in a one-yard smash by fullback
Dick Balzhizer.
Russ Rescorla tied the score at
7-7 with his first of five successful
conversions.
From that point the varsity
picked up momentum to wheel
its offense steadily up the field.
Starting from their own 38 the
Blues smashed to another touch-
down mainly on the strength of
Captain Bill Putich's alert play.
The crafty Rose Bowl veteran,
playing in the tailback spot, leap-
ed into the air for a jump pass
at the enemy 49 but when he found
no receiver open he swept wide

around his right flank for a 36-
yard gain and a first down on the
13.
A minute later he slipped around
the same end for a touchdown
from three yards out. Rescorla
made it 14-7.
* * *
THE RESERVES had scarcely
caught their collective breath when
another 62-yard Blue Jaunt was
under way, this one powered by the
passing of Don Zanfagna at left
half.
He hit Thad Stanford with a
16 yard toss and Witherspoon
with a 25 yarder to put the ball
on the White 17. Three plays
later he lofted one intended for
Witherspoon which bounded off
his outstretched hands, but
Stanford was alert in the end
zone to grab the ball for another
score. After Rescorla's boot the
Blues led, 21-7.
A recovered fumble by the Blue
team on the White 36 led to touch-
down number four. Kress.hit Topp
with a pass on the 15 from where
Kress himself wheeled around
right end for the score.

THE LAST SCORING drive saw
Balzhizer in the driver's seat. He
spun for a first down on the Re-
serves' 24. On fourth down from
the 28 he ran to the western side-
lines, leaped high in the air and
tossed a left-handed pass down the
field on which Topp made a great
running catch at the four yard
line.
Zanfagna found a big hole be-
tween right guard and tackle to
collect the touchdown.

Pat Berg Here
Patty Berg, one of the outstand-
ing figures in women's golf, will-
appear in an exhibition and clinic
at the University of Michigan
golf course Monday.
Minneapolis-born Miss Berg,
one of the great stylists and long
drivers of women's golf, will ap-
pear with two other women stars,
Betsy Rawls and Betty MacKin-
non.
Miss Rawls, who comes from
Spartanburg, South Carolina, was
runner-up to Mildred (Babe) Za-
harias in the 1950 Women's Na-
tion Open. Miss MacKinnont, from
El Dorado, Arkansas, was runner-
up in the 1951 Palm Beach Open,
losing to Polly Riley, 2 and 1.

Big Ten
S tandings

Michigan swept its two game
diamond series with Purdue yes-
terday as the Wolverines romped
to an 18-10 triumph in a wild af-
fair in which twelve errors were
committed and seventeen bases on
balls issued.
Ray Fisher's men came from
behind with an eight-run fifth
inning in which they only got
three hits but were aided im-
mensely by two errors, four walks
and a hit batsman.
* * *
PURDUE had broken a 4-4 tie
in their half of the fifth inning
when they knocked out starter
Duane Hegedorn with a three run
surge capped by Norm Banas' two-'
run homer.
John Shuett then came on to
go the rest of the way and re-
ceive credit for the win.
Bill Punkar was the starter and
loser for the Boilermakers. He
allowed only one earned run and
would have retired the side in the
fifth with a 7-5 lead had it not
been for two infield errors.
As it was, he left the scene with
two out, -the bases loaded and
Michigan already in front, 8-7.
S * * *
THEN George Crain took the
mound and proceeded to. wild
pitch one run across and. then
walk four men in a row for three
more tallies before being yanked
in favor of Roman Saliwanchik
who retired the side.
Before the big fifth the 4-4
tie came about on four unearn-
ed Michigan runs, the first three
being scored without the aid of
a hit. Purdue got its first four
runs, also unearned, when Frank
Howell dropped a fly ball with
the bases loaded and two out to
allow three men to score. Banas
who reached second on the lift
then scored on a clean single by
Harry Wallace.
Once in the lead, though, the
Wolverines began hitting and add-
ed four markers in the sixth inn-
ing on five hits off Saliwanchik
who hung on until the bitter end.
* * *
THE BIG BLOWS of the inning
were Gil ;Sabuco's solo home run
that reached the right field tennis
courts on one bounce and Pete
Palmer's four-master with two on
ahead of him.

.'

run homer in the eighth inning
to complete the Wolverine scor-
ing parade.
Shuett was able to coast to his
first conference win once he was
given the big bulge. He struck out
six and gave up three runs, two in
the ninth.
* * *
THE WOLVERINES have now
won their last three Big Ten games
to give them a 3-6 record in the
conference. Purdue is now firmly
entrenched in the cellar.
Yesterday's donnybrook was in
marked contrast to Friday's 1-0
pitcher's battle.

Ko nrad Only
Double Winner,
In Night Meet
The Michigan track team took
Leven firsts and placed in every
vent but the 440 yard dash as
hey swamped Michigan Normal
,nd the Purdue Boilermakers last
ight at Ypsilanti.
The Wolverines ran up 891/2
oints against 491/2 for the Hu-
ons and 42 for the Boilermakers
n a meet which saw four track
ecords fall by the wayside.
* * *
MICHIGAN'S A C E distance
iedley team of Joe LaRue, George
acobi, Aaron Gordon and Don
[cEwen ran the two and a half
ile grind in 10:4.2, clipping .3
conds off the mark they set last
lonth at the Drake Relays.
Purdue ran even with the
Wolverines until the final mile.
the Boilermaker's anchor man,
Fohn Stayton, kept close to Mc-
Ewen, for two laps, but then the
Canadian ace's killing pace be-
ran to tell. McEwen continued
o open up the distance in the
ast half mile, finishing fifty
rards ahead of the pack.
In the two mile relay, Chuck
'hiteaker, running the anchor
ps for the Wolverines, and Mich-
an Normal's Danny Beck, fought
out down to the wire, but Whit-
,ker's last desperate sprint gave
ichigan another win and a new
eld record.
INDIVIDUAL HONORS for the
olverines went to Bill Konrad,
e meet's only double winner.
onrad copped a first in the 100
,rd dash with a time of 10 sec-
ds flat, and took the 220 in 21.7.
The sprints were run into the
ace of a cool, stiff breeze, which
indered improved times on the
ashes.
Michigan's top hurler, Don Hoo-

ver, was upset in the 120 yard
highs by Purdue's Bob Hocker.
Hocker beat the Wolverine favor-
ite to the first barrier and kept
out in front to gain the Boiler-
maker's only victory.
s* *
THE HURONS set a new Brigg's
field record in the 440 yard dash,
the only event in which Michigan
failed to place. Stan McConner,
Michigan Normal's top point get-
ter for the evening, sprinted the
quarter mile in :48.1, beating the
old record of :48.4.
McConner ran the anchor
lap in for the Hurons in the
mile relay, the. race that gave
them second place in the meet,
Michigan Normal led Purdue,
392 to 36 before the relay, the
last event of the meet, and need-
ed a first to insure themselves a
second.
The Hurons, Boilermakers and
Michigan were neck and neck up
to the half mile mark. On the
third lap, Michigan Normal and
Purdue opened up a twenty yard
lead on the, Wolverines, a distance
that they could never make up.
On the final quarter mile, Mc-
Conner turned on a tremendous
kick that left Purdue's Ron Meyer
five yards behind at the finish.
* * *
THE WOLVERINE thinclads
swept all five firsts in the field
events, placing three in the high
jump. Lowell Perry scored 5' 10"
to win first place honors, and
Wolverines Bob Evans and Bob
Sexton tied with Purdue's Lively
Bryant and the Huron's Milt Pow-
ers in a four-way deadlock for
second.
Despite the lopsidedness of the

final score, few of the events in
the first night meet in Michigan
track history were run aways for
either team.
It was the Wolverine's ability to
consistently place high in each
event that built up their wide win-
ning score.
