Thinelads Cop Four Firsts
In Annual Southern Relays

By DICK LEWIS
The 18th hole, nemesis of more
than one of the nation's top vet-
eran golfers, proved the downfall
for the untried Michigan links
squad on its annual southern trip.
With chances of annexing both
of their dual meets below the Ma-
son-Dixon, the defending Big
Ten champions faltered on that
last hole for two successive days.
** *
CONSEQUENTLY North Caro-
lina, last year's Southern Confer-
ence kingpins, rang up a 19y2-7%ilz
triumph over the Wolverines, while
Duke eked out a 16-11 score over
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's Swing-
ers.
In amassing the identical
score against the Maize and Blue
six as in 1952, Carolina was hard
put to achieve its fifth succes-
sive verdict of the current cam-
paign. Previous wins came
against the Citadel, Williams,
Ohio and Notre Dame.
The action was all even after
17, but then the Tar Heels put on
the pressure to bury Michigan,
competing in its first meet of the
year.
THIS DUAL test was featured
by a ding-dong battle between
Wolverine sophomore Bud Stev-
ens and North Carolina senior Bob
Black.
Shooting in the number one
position in his first collegiate
meet, Stevens fired a 36-37 for a
one over par 73. Black topped
the Michigan yearling by a
stroke with a 34-38-72 effort,
but the two split three points in
the team race.
Sole Maize and Blue linksman
to defeat his opponent was Captain
Hugh Wright, who pounded out a
2-1 victory over George Mount-
castle in the fifth spot. Wright
and Tad Stanford teamed up to
divide three points with the op-
position in doubles play.
* * *
AT THE END of nine holes in
A the Duke contest, Michigan held
a 5-4 advantage under the warm
Southern skies. But again the 18th
hole shattered Wolverine hopes of
taking their first dual meet from
the Blue Devils since 1938.
Veteran Lowell LeClaire top-
ped the Maize and Blue in that
_f test with a two-over par 74, but
he had to relinquish medalist
honors to Duke's John Eisenger,
who came home with a 70. To-
gether with a 77 at Chapel Hill,

LeClaire's 151 total paced his
teammates.
Katzenmeyer was happy with
the showing of his sextet in the
ideal weather. His lineup included
Stevens in the one spot, and Jack
Stumpfig, LeClaire, Waren Gast,
Wright and Stanford in that
order.
.a * *
STUMPFIG'S injured hip held
up well with the aid of a folding
chair he carried around the courses
and rested on in between holes.
Stevens and Stanford, the two
newcomers on the squad, perform-
ed creditably, according to the
Michigan mentor.

Schich Hurls No-Hit Triumph
As Hinsdale Topples Van Tyne

By DAVE BAAD
Larry Schleh, Hinsdale right-

no-hitter to spark his team to an
easy 14-1 victory over Van Tyne.

--Earl Riskey
14 batters and only one Van Tyne
batter hit the ball in fair terri-
tory. That was a slow grounder
to the pitcher.
THE ONLY RUN came as a re-
sult of a hit batsman, a walk and
a passed ball.
Although Hayden hurler Dick
Weinberg struck out 13 men,
Cooley put together five runs
in the first two innings to hand
the defending champions an

was, easily doubled off third to
end the game.
Gerry Morrison pitched -a
classy five hitter and Hugh
Hickok slammed a long home
run to spark Winchell to an
easy 7-2 victory over Greene.
Winchell jumped into an early
lead, scoring once in the top
half of the first and then three
more in the second to coast in
to victory.
Despite the fact it started the
game with only six players, Lloyd
won its opening contest by de-
feating a hapless Adams nine,
11-3, Tom Duvall limited the los-
ers to six hits while Jack Watson
was leading the offensive with
three solid singles.

By BOB MARGOLIN
Rain, inept batting and inade-
quate pitching combined to make
last week's spring training trip one
of the most unsuccessful in re-
cent Michigan baseball history.
The Wolverines escaped the not-
so-sunny South with three wins,
three losses, three rained out
games and a lowly .247 team bat-
ting average.
; * *
JACK CORBETT, who last year
led the squad to a Big Ten base-
ball championship, found himself
on the short end of a 4-3 score on
two occasions.
The Westfield, New Jersey
junior lost a tight pitcher's duel
with Quantico's Red Norwood in
the tenth inning after Dan Cline
collided with Frank Howell in
the outfield to let the winning
run cross the plate.
In the last game of the junket,
Corbett walked three Virginia bat-
ters and the Caviliers got off to a

three run lead in the first frame.
The Wolverines never got back in
the ball game as Ted Mullman
fooled them completely with his
tantalizing slow ball. A ninth inn-
ing rally fell short of the mark.
* *~ *
THE MAIZE and Blue ballplay-
ers got off to a good start in the
trip, winning three out of their
first four games. Jack Ritter went

the distance against Delaware, 6-3,
and Marv Wisniewski followed by
holding Georgetown in check as
his teammates pounded the Hoyas,
14-1.
After losing the 4-3 affair to
Quantico, the Wolverines came
back to stop George Washington,
6-2, behind the left handed
slants of Dick Yirkosky.
Then came the rains. In the next
four days Michigan was only able
to get in one ball game and that
proved to be a 16-12 loss to Quan-
tico. Coach Ray Fisher used five
pitchers in an attempt to stem
the Marine invasion of home plate.
* * *
WISNIEWSKI, who was tagged
with the defeat, was followed by
Ralph Fagg, Bob Carpenter, Rit-
ter and Yirkosky. Marine left
fielder Neil Crisly had a field day
with two walks, two singles, a
double and a game clinching grand
slam home run. A six run Michi-
gan rally in the ninth inning fell
four runs short of the mark.
Catcher Dick Leach led the
impotent batting crew with two
singles, three doubles and two
home runs in 23 times at bat.
Captain Bill Mogk fell into a
batting slump as he went hit-
less ten straight times before
lining a solid single to center his
last time at bat. ,
Physically, the Wolverines came
out in good shape, although short-
stop Bruce Haynam pulled a mus-
cle in his leg, slowing him up con-
siderably on the basepaths.

Michigan's Bumpy Jones won
the 300-yard indivdual medley at
the National A.A.U. meet held over
the weekend of April 3, at the Yale
University pool in New Haven,

Big Ten schools were not com-

Despite strong gale-like winds
and a dry, loose track, the Wol-
verine thinclads garnered four
firsts in the Southern Relays at
Birmingham, Alabana last week-
end.
Three of Michigan's first places
came in the field events, while the
other was in the distance medley
relay.

Joe LaRue, Roy Christiansen, John

ing from behind Georgetown's

even with Charlie Cappazolli of
Georgetown. Ross then sped
away from his fellow Olympian
and won handily.
The most surprising perform-
ance of the meet was turned in
in the broad jump when Michi-
gan's converted sprinter, Dave Stin-
son leaped 23 feet 3 inches to take

the event which was almost a foot
farther than he had ever jumped
before.

FRITZ NILSSON continued to
dominate the weight events taking
both the shot put and the discuss.
The giant Swede tossed the 16

hurled the metal disk 156 feet 7
inches. The Wolverines' Roy Pella
took second in the latter event

6 feet 4 inches in his first out-
door try of the season to take
third place in the high jump.
