Michigan finished a distant third
to high powered New Haven Swim
Club (Yale) and Ohio State in the
A.A.U. swimming meet here April
3, 4 and 5.
Despite the failure of its ace,
John Marshall, to win any races,
Yale outscored the Buckeyes, 113-
97, to avenge an Ohio State victory
in the N.C.A.A. meet at Princeton
the previous week. Michigan State
and the Navy Olympic squad each
had one point less than the Wol-
verines' 21.
* * *
OHIO STATE'S Ford Konno re-
ceived the award for the high
point swimmer as he triumphed
in the 1500 meter, 220 and 440.
Davies posted his double in the
220 and 100 yard breast stroke,
covering the former in 2:29.1 and
the latter in :59.2. The 100 yard,
record was held by Charley Moss,
ex-Wolverine natator. Jones was
outstanding in his specialty, the
300 yard individual medley. He
covered the route in 2:20.7 for a
new American standard.
Two other Michigan tankmen
qualified for the finals. Fresh-
man Ron Gora gave a creditable
performance in finishing lourth
in the 100 yard freestyle, dom-
inated by the two finest sprint-
men in the country, Clarke
Scholes of Michigan State and
Ohio State's Dick Cleveland.
This was the third straight time
Scholes has stopped Cleveland,
who holds the unofficial world
record for the distance.
Gora also placed third in the
220. Bernie Kahn, Wolverine grad-
uate student, placed sixth in the
100 yard backstroke. It was Kahn's
first competition this year.

Browning dominated the diving
events as he soared to champion-
ships in both the low and high
board events. However, Ohio State
picked up more points in these
events as Morley Shapiro andBob
Clotworthy finished in the run-
ning in both heights and Jerry
Harrison gained a sixth on the
high boards.
A twin win was gained by Dick
Thoman of Yale as he set a meet
record of :56.9 in the 100 yard
backstroke and then went on to
take the 150 yard backstroke the
next evening.
Yale also scored wins in both
the 300 yard medley relay and the
440 yard relay.

Michigan's baseball team gave
an exhibition of resiliency on its
southern swing, bouncing back to

The over-all picture after an in-
different preseason trip shows the
Wolverines a fair ball club, still
lacking the all-important "exper-
ienced pitcher." Two important
new faces were added to the line-
up for opening day.
THEY ARE Dick Leach, sopho-
more catcher who has taken over
the first-string receiving role and
Paul Lepley, a hard-hitting fresh-
man outfielder from Warwick,
Ohio, a fixture in left field.
The team's hitting proved to
be the surprise of the trip. The
club, led by two freshman stars,
managed to compile a very im-
pressive .300 average for the
Southern swing.
Third-sacker Don Eaddy led the
batsmen with a raucous .500 mark,
including two doubles and three
triples. The unheralded -'Lepley
followed with a torrid .451, and

shortstop Bruce Haynam rounded
,out the more potent stickmen with
.360 and .294 averages respective-
casualty of the trip, twisting his
ankle in the final game at Vir-
ginia. From his spring training
performance it appeared as though
he's finally going to live up to his
potentialities and if this injury
proves serious it will hurt the
"weak-benched" Wolverine squad.
The pitching department that
was causing Fisher so much
trouble at the start of the trip
turned in a respectable job, more
than living ,ip to expectations.
Right-hander Jack Corbett and
southpaws Dick Yirkoski and
Norm Wisniewski all looked good
on the mound.
Corbett chalked up two shut-
outs, beating Vinthill Army Base
8-0 and a combined Fort Meyer-
Fort McNair soldier squad 2-0.
Wisniewski lost a wild-scoring
contest with Delaware, 10-9, when
Harrington dropped a fly ball, and

came back to beat George Wash-
ington, 10-4.

against Wayne University when
the Ferry Field ball yard opens for
business this Saturday. Yirkoski
beat Fort Mead, 9-6, and Virginia,
12-4, as well as seeing action in
relief against Georgetown, a game
which the Wolverines lost, 11-4.
Ralph Fagg, a freshman right-
hander, turned in some good
work in relief against the Quan-
tico Marines, but this didn't stop
the service club from handing
the Wolverines a 15-3 loss.
The most disappointing aspect
of the team's performance down
South was, their poor fielding. In
indoor workouts it appeared as
though the team would rely on
fielding ability when the uncertain
pitching and hitting didn't come

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer was
well satisfied with the showing of
his linksmen on their southern
trip last week despite three Wol-
verine losses.

their season on April 7 losing to

fell victim to North Carolina and
