In Windy Meet
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan's
golfers had the inevitable bad day
yesterday.
But two of the Wolverine links-
men who haven't been making- the
headlines pulled a 16-11 win over
Michigan State out of the fire for
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's squad.
Junior Lowell LeClaire and
senior rangy John Fraser shot
their best golf of the year to take
up the slack when it counted.
With a four-over-par 76 in the
morning match play, and a two-
over-par 74 in the afternoon
singles competition, LeClaire
gained medalist honors in a 30-
mile per hour gale which swept
the Walnut. Hills Country Club
course.
Shooting in the number three
singles position, LeClaire captured
a nine-stroke, 2-% decision over
Spartan veteran Carl Mosack. Le-
Claire teamed up with portly Hugh
Wright to achieve a 1 -1/2 split
with Don Stevens and Hale Ware
in the pre-noon action.
Fraser, medalist in the triangu-
lar meet at Columbus two weeks
ago, fired a par 72 in the morning
round and then came back with
an 80 to defeat Bill Albright by
ten strokes.
The Spartans took a 5-4 lead at
lunchtime mainly through the ef-
forts of their number one doubles
combination.
CaptainJack Zinn and Chuck
Davenport each carded 74s to shut
out Wolverine captain Dean Lind
and Dick Evans by a 3-0 margin.
Lind took 80 strokes and Evans
counted with 77.
Fraser and Russ Johnson com-
bined for a 12%-2 triumph over
Masock and Albright in the num-
ber two best ball play. Johnson
shot an 82 to go along with Fras-
er's par, while the Spartan duo
went around in 78 and 80 respec-
tively.
A pair of 76s by Wright and
LeClaire was good enough to split
the number three doubles despite
Stevens' 75 and Ware's 74.
Captain Lind retaliated with a
78 in the medal play to blank
Zinn, 3-0, but Evans soared to
82 and suffered a 2/-/ setback
at the hands of Davenport, who
toured the course in 81 strokes.
At this point the point-total
was even-steven at 7.-7%. Then
LeClaire and Johnson turned in
decisive wins to virtually assure
Michigan's fifth consecutive suc-
cess.
LeClaire's sparkling 74 staggered
Mosack, and Johnson's 79 was
four strokes better than an 83 ef-
fort by Stevens. Victory in the
number three* and four singles put
the Maize and Blue on top, 12.-
Fraser finished up with his ten-
stroke swamping of Albright, and
Wright broke even with Ware,
both shooting 84s.
Coach Katzenmeyer termed the
golf good considering the unusu-
ally high winds. He was "glad
that his charges got the bad day
out of their systems."

M' Defense
Improves as
HowellHits
Diamond Team
Slumps at Plate
By PAUL GREENBERG
The steady hitting of center-
fielder Frank Howell and general
defensive improvement marked the
Michigan baseball team's play this
past weekend.
Howell powered the ball at a
.333 clip and slammed out two
home runs. His heavy bat, together
with the promising offensive dis-
play put on by freshman outfield-
er Paul Lepley in the second game
at Minnesota gave promise of bat-
ting fireworks this Friday and
Saturday against Michigan State.
HOWEVER, all told, the team
made a poor showing at the plate
against Iowa and Minnesota. The
team's average on the road was a
meagre .204, quite a bit lower than
the season's mark of .316.
In the field things were look-
ing up for the Wolverines. Only
two errors were made in three
games, none proving serious.
Don Eaddy, who is still having
trouble finding the range to first
from third base, chipped in with
another boot against Minnesota.
Eaddy, whose fine hitting has
kept the team up on top in the
Conference race, converted to the
"hot corner" this year and brought
with him a powerful but hard-to-
control side arm peg that hasn't
proved dependable.
Dick Leach, sophomore who has
nailed down the first-string catch-
ing job and his impressed observers
with his heads-up receiving, has
also been in a defensive slump.
Leach, a conscientious youth from
Flint, Michigan, has been working
hard on his glove work under the
watchful guidance of Coach Ray
Fisher and is improving steadily.
On the mound, the picture stays
the same. Mary Wisniewski, Jack
Cgrbett, and Dick Yirkiski remain
the top three and have worked
every game since the team return-
ed from its Southern trip.
This trio, aside from standing
out on the mound, garnered five
of the 19 hits that Michigan got
last weekend. Both Kirkoski and
Wisniewski picked up wins, while
Corbett dropped a 2-1 decision to
Minnesota.

times in a big third inning as the
Phi Delts handed the DU's a 13-7
setback.
The best pitching performance
of the day was a one-hitter turned
in by Gene Grace of Tau Kappa
Epsilon as he led the Tekes to a
5-0 triumph over ZBT in the sec-
ond place playoffs. Four of the
five runs were provided by a grand
slam home-run by Owen Lawlor.
In the other battle for second
place, Phi Gamma Delta defeated
Chi Phi, 9-3.
In a third place playoff con-
test, Jerry Rovner walloped three
home-runs and teammate Tom
Fabian added two more and a
triple as Pi Lambda Phi slaugh-
tered Theta Delta Chi, 25-6.
Lambda Chi Alpha moved one
step closer in its bid for the show
position by turning back Sigma
Phi, 17-7.
The only fourth place playoff
game of the day saw Tau Delta
Phi win a slugfest from Psi Upsilon
by the score of 12-10. In a profes-
sional fraternity game, Phi Delta
Epsilon battled Alpha Chi Sigma
to a 16-16 deadlock.

Six returning tackles and four
holdover guards give line coach
Jack Blott an experienced core of
letter winners around which to
build the 1952 Michigan forward
wall.

Tom Johnson seems to be the
number one order of the day con-
cerning the tackle situation.
ATTENTION CENTERS around
a pair of sophomores from Nor-
thern Illinois, Jim Balog of Wheat-
on and Don Bennett of Chicago.
Balog played behind Johnson last
year, but mainly on defense, while
Bennett took over Johnson's of-
fensive position in several games.

RON WILLIAMS, a stocky 5 foot
