Play Halted
By Weatheri
Wet grounds forced the can-
cellation of seven intramural soft-
ball games and three tennis
matches yesterday.
Three fraternity g'ames and four
faculty contests comprised the
softball schedule which fell victim
to the spring rains. In the pro-'
fessional fraternity league, the af-
fected contests were those between
Phi Delta Epsilon and Phi Chi,
and the scheduled affair between
Tau Epsilon Rho and Phi Alpha
Kappa.
The only social fraternity
game drowned out was the Tau
Delta Phi, Theta Delta Chi clash.
Tennis matches which will be
played at a later date are those
between Theta Xi and Phi Sig-
ma Kappa, Zeta Beta Tau and
Phi Kappa Psi, and Phi Delta
Theta and Alpha Epsilon Pi.
Standish Evans was credited
With a net victory over the
Hawaiians by forfeit.
Despite the soggy turf, however,
three horseshoe matches were
played, all in the social fraternity
league. Delta Chi defeated Theta
Xi, Theta Delta Chi defeated Del-
ta Tau Delta, and Sigma Phi Ep-
silon turned back Phi Kappa Tau
all by the identical score of 2-1.

Fourth Place Michigan Nine
Opens Series withSpartans

By DAVE BAAD
Michigan's baseball team, still
smarting from the two straight
defeats administered by Iowa last
Saturday, returns to Big Ten ac-
tion today meeting Michigan State
in a Ferry Field encounter start-
ing at 3:30 p.m.
It is the first of a three game
series with the Spartans, the con-
cluding double-header being play-
ed tomorrow at East Lansing.
* * .*
THE WOLVERINES, jolted from
the WesternConference lead as
a result of last weekend's double
setbackhare at present mired in
a fourth place tie with Illinois
and Iowa. Wisconsin and North-
western, unbeaten in their only
two starts, mutually command
the top spot.
Coach Ray Fisher, shorthand-
ed due to Marv Wisniewski's
sore arm, is unsure of his pitch-
ing choices for the three game
set. Jack Corbett, Dick Yirkos-
ky and Jack Ritter will likely
divide the three assignments.
Corbett, most effective of Mich-
igan's healthy hurlers, is expected
to work the first game on Satur-
day. This will enable Fisher to
use him in relief in the nightcap
if a tight situation arises.
* * *
ALTHOUGH the team hasn't

been hitting too well, especially
in the clutch, there will be no
changes in the lineup. The only
shift may come in the batting or-
der, but Fisher will not be certain
of the arrangement until just
prior to game time.
Dick Leach will be behind the
plate with Bill Mogk, Gil Sa-
buco, Bruce Haynam and Don
Eaddy rounding out the infield.
Paul Lepley, Frank Howell, and
Jack Corbett will compose the
outer defense with Bill Billings
playing rightfield when Corbett
is pitching.

itself and last weekend the Spar-
tans received three excellent hurl-
ing performances to rack up two
triumphs in three starts.
* * *
THE VICTOSIES, including one
over Iowa, 3-2 and another over
Minnesota in extra innings by an
identical score, moved the Spar-
tans out of the cellar into the
seventh slot.
Bud Erickson, Bob Dang, and
Dick Idzikowski are the prob-
able Spartan pitching choices
for the weekend. Erickson, the
most effective of State's pitch-
ers thus far, has racked up both
of the team's conference deci-
sions.
The Spartans, holding the dub-
ious distinction of bringing up the
rear in the Big Ten batting aver-
ages, have only one hitter over
the .300 mark. Tom Yewcic, well
known for his football exploits, is
clubbing the ball at a .304 clip.
CHAILIE Matthews, first base-
man, the only other hitter who
even tops the .250 mark, is bat-
ting .294.
Barring last minute changes,
State will line up with Yewcic
catching and Matthews, Stan
Turner, Wayne Lawrie, and
John Zeitler in the infield. The
outfield consists of captain Bob
Dilday, John Risch and Dan
Brown.
Although Michigan's seasonal
.batting averages aren't too im-
pressive, the Wolverines are pok-
ing the ball at a .289 clip in Big
Ten competition.

Spartans Expect Improvement
From Experienced Golf Squad

By JOHN M. KOVAL
With five returning lettermen,
the Michigan State linksters, un-
der the tutelage of Coach Ben Van
Alstyne, are expecting to do much
better than their last season's last
place finish in the Big Ten Cham-
pionships.
Captain Carl Mosack leads the
field of returning lettermen which
also includes Chuck Davenport,
Biff Hills, Don Stevens, and Bill
Albright. The sole newcomer to
the squad is Dave Mancour.
IN FIVE MATCHES so far this
season the Spartans have won
three, tied one, and lost one. In
their last encounter the State golf-
ers edged a powerful Notre Dame
squad, 14-13. The Fighting Irish
had been previously unbeaten.
In their last two meets the
Spartan's Biff Hills has copped
the medalist honors. Against
Notre Dame, Hills shot a three
over par 75 to tie Notre Dame's
Tom Matey for the honors, while
against the University of De-
troit he led the field with a two
over par 74.
In addition to Hill, Mosack and
Albright have also shown definite
improvement over last season's
play and may cause a lot of trouble
to future opponents. However, the
Michigan Staters have a long
way to go before they can be
considered a serious bid for the
conference title.
* * *
IN THEIR ONLY conference
meet to date, the Spartan golf
squad could do no better than tie
the Northwestern Wildcats, a com-
parative weak sister in Big Ten
golfing circles. Only last Monday
the Wildcats were soundly beaten
by Coach Bert Katzenmeyer's Wol-
verine squad, 24-15.
Coach Van Alstyne's golfers in
two contests with the University
of Detroit Titans have managed
to break even. After losing to
the Titans in Detroit, the
Green and White from East
Lansing swamped them in a re-
turn match on the Walnut Hills
course, the Spartans home
stamping grounds.

The Spartans next encounter
will be a triangular match on their
home course against the University
of Marquette and the University
of Michigan. The Wolverine golf-
ers are unbeaten in Big Ten com-
petition with five victories under
their belt.
* * *
LAST SEASON, in two matches
against the Maize and Blue, the
Michigan State squad was soundly
trounced in both contests. In the
first meet on the Walnut Hills
course, Michigan linksman Lowell
LeClair garnered the medalist hon-
ors as Michigan won, 16-11.

Michigan Net'
Squad Takes
On Wildcats
Litt etp Change Shifts
Mann to Top Position
By DICK BUCK
Al Mann will be back in a fa-
miliar spot this afternoon when
the Michigan tennis squad takes
on Northwestern behind the red
brick wall on Hoover Street at 1
p.m.
The Grosse Pointe netter will be
playing in the number one spot
for the first time since last season
and will oppose Wildcat star Dan
Baumle just as he did in the prev-
ious campaign.
COACH Bill Murphy announced
the line-up shift, the first he has
made this season, yesterday. Mur-
phy hastbeen conducting a chal-
lenge tournament among the
squad for the past few days.
Emerging from the number
three position, Mann replaces
Pete Paulus in the top spot. It
is not yet known whether Paul-
us will play in Mann's position
or if he is to displace bespec-
tacled Dave Mills in the second
slot.
Maury Pelto, Bob Paley, and
Bob Nederlander fill out the Mich-
igan singles lineup as in the prev-
ious meets, while the doubles pair-
ings are also unchanged.
NORTHWESTERN, while not
possessing an especially strong
squad, can boast of three good

men in Baumle, Ron Clemes, and
Bernie Frank.
Baumle, a senior, bowed to
Mann in 1952 by a 6-2, 9-7 mar-
gin, but has been playing top
tennis this season and should
be hard to beat. He and Clemes,
teaming up for doubles play,
racked up the only victory for
Wildcats in a match with power-
laden Indiana last Saturday.
They also defeated the Wolver-
ines last year.
With the exception of Clemes in
the number two singles position,
and Frank, a senior, holding down
the third slot, the Northwestern
squad is not exceptionally strong.
Lettermen Don Rondou, Andy
Shillinglaw, and Jim Sagebiel fill
the remaining openings.
* * *
ALTHOUGH Indiana trounced
the Northwestern team by an 8-1
score, this match is hardly indica-
tive of Northwestern's strength
since the Hoosiers have been
chalking up similar scores against
all their opponents,
Northwestern was at East Lan-
sing yesterday for a warmup tus-
sle with the Spartans of Michigan
State, another rough customer in
Big Ten competition.

Michigan's Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics has plac-
ed a unanimous stamp of approval
on the preliminary action of the
Big Ten in accepting the invi-
tation of the Pacific Coast Con-
ference to extend the Rose Bowl
agreement for another three years.
Athletic Director H. O. "Fritz"
Crisler, chairman of the Board,
announced the decision, which
was reached at a recent meeting
of the group. It is the responsi-i
bility of the Board to have "full
control of all questions pertain-
ing to athletics," and the opinioni
on the Rose Bowl issue was ex-
pressed in line with that respon-
sibility.
