Wright Fires 73 To Capture!
Medalist Honors at Detroit.
4 LeClaire and Stevens Fire 76 To Down
U of D Linksmen; Stelter Low for Titans

Special to The Daily
The University of Michigan
Linksters downed the University
of Detroit, 18%-8%, in a dual
meet played at Red Run Golf Club
in Detroit yesterday afternoon.
Captain Hugh Wright sparked
j the win as he was meet medalist
with a 73. Bud Stevens and Lowell
LeClaire trailed closely behind,
each firing a 76. Ron Stelter was
low man for U. of D., shooting a
74.*
IN THE FIRST of the three
foursomes, LeClaire fired a 37-39-
76 to take 2% points from Mike
Andonian, who also fired a 76.
Wright shot a 37 on the front
nine and came in with a 36 to
take two points from Stelter.
Playing in the number three
position, Wolverine Bud Stevens
took advantage of his long
drives to pound out a 36-40-76
and take two points from U. of
i D. linksman Don Frazer, who
fired a 42-37-79. In the same
foursome Ray Conlon shot a
39-37-76 to take all three points
from Wolverine Warren bast,
who blew up to an 81.
In the last foursome, Jack Stum-
fig, playing with a bad back, slip-
ped to a 78 but still managed to
win 21/2 points from Bill Huette-
man, who fired a 79. Tad Stan-
ford took all three points from Ray

Maisevich as he came in in 77 to
top the Detroiter's 78.
* * *
THE BEST BALL scores show-
ed Michigan winning in two four-
somes while tying in the other.
Wright and LeClaire took 2 /2
points to % for U. of D. in the
initial foursome. Gast and Stevens
split with Frazer and Conlon, each
copping 1% points. Stumpfig and
Stanford also took 2% points from
Maisevich and Huetteman.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer, com-
menting on the meet, said that
the play was a little better than
the lust meet the Wolverines
played with the University of
Detroit. Then the Michigan
Linksmen tied 131-13/. He was
a little disappointed with the
play of Warren Gast but hoped
that he would improve between
now and the conference meet,
which will be played May 29-30,
at Madison, Wisconsin.
Commenting on the chances of
the Wolverine linksters in taking
the Western Conference golf title,
Katzenmeyer said, "Ohio State is
definitely the team we must beat.
I believe we have a stronger team
than they do, but the boys will
have to go out and play the kind
of golf they are capable of play-
ing to win the Big Ten title."
This match was the last meet of
the Big Ten season, outside of the
Conference meet, and gave the
Wolverine Linksmen a 9-3-1 rec-
ord with eight conference wins and
only one loss. This season has been
very successful for the golfers andI
their chances for the champion-
ship are excellent.
After the Conference champion-
ship meet, there remains for the
Wolverine swingers only the
NCAA tournament. Katzenmeyer's
charges copped second place in the
national extravaganza last year,
finishing behind powerful North
Texas State.

SIG EPS WIN:
Phi Chi Takes Pro Softball Title,_4-2

81:.

By JACK HORWITZ
Sparked by the four hit pitch-
ing of Ed Sheldon, Phi Chi took
the professional fraternity soft-
ball championship, downing Nu
Sigma Nu, 4-2, yesterday after-
noon.
Although Tom Peterson, former
Michigan football star, yielded
only three hits, the Phi Chis' spec-
tacular fielding prevented the Nu
Sigs from scoring.'
IN THE FIRST place social fra-
ternity playoffs, Sigma Phi Epsi-
lon downed Lambda Chi Alpha,
1-0, behind the one hit pitching of
Bob Schmidt.
Jay Casmier, winner of five
straight games including two no-
hitters, gave up only one hit for
the Lambda Chis. Poor fielding
led to their downfall although Hal
Cruger made spectacular catches
of four foul balls behind the plate.
Illinois Ripe
To Capture
Tracek Title
Illinois established itself as the
prime favorite for the coming
Western Conference Track and
Field championships at Cham-
paign on May 29-30, by its over-
whelming 79%-52t3 victory over
Michigan Saturday.
Veteran track observers expect-
ed the Illinois-Michigan meet to
be a toss-up, but Orange and Blue
depth and balance proved too
much for the Wolverines to cope
with.
* * *
PRE-MEET ANALYSIS had first
place points split evenly, seven
points goin to each team. But the
invaders from Illinois surprised the
dopesters by winning the 440, rile
relay and the two mile run.
The Illini opened up their
biggest guns in taking both first
and second places in the 440,
broad jump, high and low hurd-
les, and the 100 yard dash. These
places accounted for 40 of the
79% points Illinois gatherd.
Milt Mead turned in the top
Michigan performance of the day
as he set varsity, meet, and Ferry
Field records with his tremendous
6' 8%" leap. With over 5,000 pairs
of eyes focused on him, Mead calm-
ly approached the bar, threw his
angular frame into the air, and
cleared the bar. The bar shook for
an instant, but it held fast, and
Mead had jumped higher than any
other Michigan athlete in history.
* .* *
MICHIGAN DID come through
with two double winners, John
Ross and Fritz Nilsson. Ross took
the 880, as he outlasted Gene May-
nards' stretch bid, and also out-
ran the favored Stacey Siders, Big
Ten indoor and Drake Relay
champ. Ross had opened the day's
festivities by winning the mile with
the new meet record time of 4:11.4.
The mile was unique in that all
four finishers broke the meet rec-
ord, the fourth place man crossing
the finish line in the excellent
time of around 4:15.
The giant Nilsson smashed
two meet records in his double
win, as he put the shot 54' 10",
and hurled the discus 158' 5".
The Wolverines now turn their
thoughts to the impending dual
meet with Michigan State here
Friday. Coach Canham's charges
will be up against a strong out-
fit, but the experts are predicting
a Michiganvictory.
SThe Maize and Blue swept to

victory in an unofficial relay meet
at MSC two weeks ago, and figure
to repeat this triumph on Friday.

Michigan's bowling team, spon-

wound up its first year of par-
ticipation in a collegiate league
last Saturday by winning the
championship at East Lansing.
Competing in a league with'
Michigan State, Wayne University,
and Michigan Normal, the Michi-
gan squad climaxed the four team
tournament season by coming from
behind and edging out a Spartan
squad by 44 pins.

STAN WOOLLAMS, who was

substituting in last Saturday's
match for Nonny Weinstock, led
the Michigan keglers to victory
with a strong 583 series. Bruce
Thornton wound up in second
place on the championship team
by rolling a 563 trio.
Going into the final Saturday
of the tournament, the Michigan
five trailed the squad from
Michigan State by 17 pins. How-
ever, a well-balanced team, in
which no man rolled under a
500 series, overcame the deficit
and went on to win, 2677-2616.
