COLUMBUS - Those overdue
Wolverine batters suddenly came
to life yesterday to give Michigan
an easy 19-9 victory over Ohio
State in the Big Ten season's open-
er for both teams.
Lanky Paul Ebert, the best hurl-
er the Buckeyes could offer, nev-
er got past the first inning as the
Fishermen pounded him merciless-
ly. Michigan put together five hits
and four walks off Ebert and his
successor, southpaw Dave Bech-
tel, for eight runs in the opening
frame and coasted in to the win.
TODAY, Coach Ray Fisher will
send his "Goldust Twins" of the
1952 campaign, Jack Corbett and
Marv Wisniewski against Illinois
in a twin-bill at Champaign. Cor-
bett, a righty, and Wisniewski, a
lefthander, will be up against I-
lini righthanders Clive Follmer
and Jack Schuldt.
Chunky Jack Ritter, rookie
southpaw, drew the starting
mound assignment against the
Buckeyes, and he rolled in to his
first Western Conference win as
his teammates cut loose for 12
runs in the first three innings.
Ritter wasn't in top form in the
cold drizzly weather and he was
behind on two counts most of the
afternoon, walking five and fan-
ning three. He left the mound in
favor of lefthander Dick Yirkosky
when the OSU batsmen kicked up
their heels to get six runs in the
eighth frame.

Seventeen more American sick and wounded returned to freedom

The proposed $2,000,000 State
mental hospital for children will
be located on campus and oper-
ated by the University, the Senate
Appropriations Committee an-
nounced yesterday in Lansing.
The Committee, now reviewing
the state's $65,000,000 mental hos-
pital bond issue, earmarked $1,-
000,000 of the sum for beginning
construction of the hospital and
attached a ride rspecifying that
the institution must be built in
Ann Arbor.
THE BILL was prepared so that
committee members said Gov. G.
Mennen Williams could not veto
it withoutrejecting the entire
mental health budget.
Members of the committee
thus took a stand against strong
demands in some circles for the
hospital to be built at North-
ville. Backers of the Northville
site say that it would be close
to the stiff of Wayne iiverslty

While yesterday's repatriation
completes the over-all quota the
Reds originally pledged, there was
every hope that the flow of Allied

Both sides have said they would
return more disabled captives than
first promised.
The Communists Saturday said
they would exchaige 84 Allied sick
and wounded prisoners Sunday, in-
cluding 13 Americans.
THE REDS said they would de-
liver 50 South Koreans, of which
16 will be litter cases at 6 p.m. to-

Another 38 Allied repatriates
were fl.own from Korea to Japan
yesterday in a big C124 Globe-
master transport plane. Five were
carried aboard the Globemaster on

Eisenhower intervened yesterday
in an attempt to halt a Senate
filibuster against the bill to estab-

Calling for prompt passage of
the bill, he said he is "deeply con-

the 17-day debate. He said it is
holding up the administration's
legislative program.
