The Michigan State diamond
squad will attempt to wreck Michi-
gan's pennant hopes when it meets
the Wolverine nine today at 3:30
p.m. at East Lansing in the open-
ing encounter of a three game ser-
ies.
Both teams will tangle again
Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at the Ferry
Field Stadium in a double header.
CURRENTLY Michigan is lead-
ing the conference with a 5-1 rec-
ord along with the Badgers of Wis-
consin. The Spartans, with a 3-3
record, are in a four-way tie for
fourth position.
Michigan State, possessing a

coach John Kobs for mound
t duty will be Bob Dangl, Gus
Carlson, and Roger Howard, Bob
Carlson and Tom Lawson.
Quayle, of Oxford, Michigan, is
the ace of the squad, having allow-
ed only ten hits and four runs in
nearly 30 innings on the Southern
trip and winning four games
against one loss this season. His
earned run average is an excellent
1.78.
FIRE-BALLER Roger Howard is
the other mainstay of the State
mound staff. Howard has four
straight victories Without a defeat
including two consecutive three-

triumph coming at the expense
of Iowa.
Michigan will attempt to break
out of its hitting slump against the
Spartans. The Maize and Blue nine
slumped last weekend from a con-
ference leading .328 team hitting
average to a second place .297 be-
hind Illinois. Third-sacker Don
Eaddy is the leading Wolverine
clouter with .375 followed by first
baseman Bill Mogk and center-
fielder Frank Howell.

The Michigan tennis squad is
in for a busy weekend, when it
meets Wisconsin here this after-
noon at two o'clock and then takes
on the Illinois netters tomorrow
morning at ten thirty, also at the
Ferry Field courts.
The Badger squad boasts a
three won, two lost record to date.
They bowed to Notre Dame, 6-3,
and Iowa, 9-0, while taking match-
es from Lawrence College, 6-3,
Marquette, 9-0, and Purdue, 5-3

from yesterday's professional fra-

their championship hopes still

The Phi Chi's nipped the Law

Brink sparked the winners to their
vital victory with two of his team's
four safeties, and added a pair
of sensational fielding plays at his
shortstop position.
In a completely different type

Alpha Omega's bid for the title,
14-3.
Don Briggs set the losers down
with four hits, while teammate Bill

Johnson, who usually plays in the
number four spot for the Maize
and Blue. Johnson has been called
away to his sister's wedding in
Rockford, Ill.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer
thinks the rest of his team
shapes up well for this four-way
battle. Senior Dick Evans took
advantage of yesterday's break
in the weather to tour the front
nine in creditable style.
Captain Dean Lind and rotund
Hugh Wright spent the latter part
of the afternoon working on iron
shots on the practice green. Blue-
books gave John Fraser and Lowell
LeClaire the afternoon off.
Katzenmeyer announced that
tomorrow's 36-hole competition,
which represents the first broad-.
cast of a golf match in this area,
will be scored on the basis of the
Nassau System.
This system is based on match
play, where a total of three points
is awarded for each 18 holes. One
point goes for the player leading
in holes won after nine, another
for the same after the second nine,
and the third marker is given to
the golfer who holds the edge after
18.

COACH BILL MURPHY plans
to start the same squad whichhe
has used thus far this season for
the Wolverines.
The Illinois squad is primar-
ily a senior group. Of the six
men on the travelling team, five
are seniors, with two veterans
of last year's Big Ten Meet.
Captain Bob Bennorth, number
two singles man, is now in his
third season for the fighting Illini.
Two years ago, as a sophomore,
he gained the conference number
6 singles title. Last year, he moved
up to the third position, where he
lost out in the second round of
the final meet.
'HUSKY SENIOR Bob Hoffman,
now playing in the number three
slot, is the other returning letter-
man. Playing at number 4 last
season, he won six out of ten
matches, but was eliminated in
the first round of the Big Ten
Meet.
The only junior on the squad,
Fred Most, is playing in the
first slot. Alan Farmerntakes
number four, Jack Abrams num-
ber five, and Harvey Hartenstein
the number six singles positions.
The doubles match will pair up
Most and Bennorth in the first
match, Farmer and Hoffman in
the second positions, and Harten-
stein and Abrams in the third.
The Illini defeated Michigan
last year, 5-4, at Illinois, while
the Wolverines took the Badgers,
8-1, at Ann Arbor.

By IVAN KAYE
(Another in a Series)
The prime concern of Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan this Spring has
been the development of an effi-
cient tailback-fullback duo to re-
place the graduated Bill Putich-
Don Peterson combination.
The Michigan mentor, and back-
field coach George Ceithmal, have
currently been experimenting with
Norm Canty, Don Evans, Ted
Kress and Joe Krahl at the tail-
back spot, and Fred Baer and Dick
Balzhiser at the fullback post.
CANTY AND BAER were team-
mates in the backfield which car-
ried Fenwick high school to the
championship of Chicago in 1948.
Both are extremely hard runners,
the kind that keep right on going
for yardage after being hit.

"

Canty is completely recovered
from the head injury which
sidelined him last season. The
5 foot 10 inch 170 pounder has
shown himself to be a good pass-
er and an adequate blocker on
reverse plays.
Baer, who wore Don Dufek's old
number 30 last fall while a mem-
ber of the junior varsity, has im-
pressed everyone at Ferry Field
with his alert, aggressive style of
fullback play.
* * *
DICK BALZHISER, who also
played fullback on last year's Jay-
vee squad, has delighted grid prac-
tice onlookers with his powerful
line plunging. A native of Whea-j
ton, Illinois, he is an accurate
southpaw passer, and is particu-
larly effective on sweeps around

the left side where he can fake a
run and then throw a pass while
still on the move.
While Baer and Balzhiser have
been the chief operatives at the
spinner slot, three other tail-
backs have alternated with Can-
ty at the tailback post. Ted
Kress, Don Evans and Joe Krahl
are all in serious contention for
the position.
Kress throws a long and accur-
ate pass and is a slashing runner
on the off-tackle plays. The off-
tackle slant along with the full-
back spinner cycle is a "bread
and butter" play in Michigan's
deceptive single wing attack.
Evans and Krahl will be sopho-
mores next fall, and as yet have
had no experience other than Jay-
vee action last season.
