Way e, 9-1, in Home Opener

Taylor Wins,
15-1; Opens
I-M Softball
Led by the supurb pitching of
Doug Lootens who gave up only
two hits and two walks, Taylor
House crushed Williams House,
15-1, yesterday afternoon to open
the Intramural softball season.
Taylor had only four hits to ac-
count for the 15 runs, but the
four Williams pitchers gave up 11
walks, most of them in one inn-
ing, to give the win to Taylor.
' Dave Zolotow led the South Quad-
ders with two singles, and one

ED GODFREY'S batting, and
Bob Mann's pitching paced the
Gomberg nine to an easy 8-0 win
over Kelsey House. Godfrey lash-
ed out with a single, a double, and
a homerun, while Mann kept Kel-
sey from scoring as he allowed
4 only two hits and two walks.
Gomberg's powerful hitters took
six hits and four walks off Dick
Potter, on the mound for the los-
In another high scoring event,
Allen-Rumsey thrashed Strauss,
14-4. Strauss pitching allowed
the Allen-Rumsey crew 12 hits
and four walks while striking
out none. Strauss batters were
able to take only five hits off
the winning pitcher, Perry Dan-
iels. Jack DeCou hit two singles
and a double for the winners.
COOLEY WON the contest, 5-3,
mainly because of the excellent
pitching of Norman Kiel, who
struck out nine batters, and al-
lowed only one walk. He also led
the batting with two hits.
Both teams are protesting the
outcome of the game between
Lloyd and Hinsdale. Lloyd won,
6-3. The umpire's decisions that
are being questioned concern
several runs scored by both
squads by stealing home. Ac-
cording to I-M rules, this is il-
legal, but they were counted.
Wenley downed Reeves house in
the closest game, 2-0. The win-
ners had no hits, but were as-
sisted by four errors and five
walks. Harold Poindexter scored
the only hit for the losers.

Snead Defeats
Hogan, 70-'71
AUGUSTA, Ga. - (AP) - Sam
Snead gambled with the "grave-
yard of the masters, the tortuous
13th hole, and beat Ben Hogan by
a stroke in an 18-hole playoff for
the Masters golf title yesterday.
Snead won by a score of 70 to
Hogan's 71 in a duel that carried
right up to the final green. They
had finished the regulation 72
holes Sunday with scores of 289,
highest ever to win a Masters tour-
The victory made Snead the sec-
ond man ever to win the Masters
three times puinting him even with
Jimmy DeMaret.

Michigan's NCAA baseball
champs took advantage of a shaky
defense to coast to an easy 9-1
triumph over hapless Wayne yes-
terday afternoon in the season's
opening contest on the Ferry Field
Sophomore pitcher Dick Peter-
John set the Tartars down with
three hits and struck out seven
men while his mates pounded a
trio of Wayne hurlers for 11 safe-
ties in an abbreviated game that
was called after the top half of
the seventh.
The Wolverines, who Saturday
concluded a successful southern
trip in which they picked up seven
wins in nine starts, will see ac-
tion at Ferry Field again today
when they meet an always tough
Western Michigan outfit this aft-
ernoon at 3:30.
The Tartars had little luck solv-
ing the southpaw slants of Peter-
john, who allowed only three men
to reach base after the first inn-
ing when a streak of wildness
gave Wayne its only run..
The Wolverine moundsman
sent the first two men to face
him down swinging, but then a
pair of walks followed by first
baseman Dick Ortiz' clean single
to left was good for a run before
Peterjohn sneaked a third one
past Paul Zdeb to record his third
strikeout and end the inning,
From then on Michigan had
things its own way. Centerfielder
Dan Cline walked to start the bot-

safe when Cline beat the throw
to third.
When righthander Russ Hughes
then gave both Paul Lapley and
Don Eaddy free tickets to first,
the latter forcing Cline across
the plate, the Tartar starter head-
ed for the showers.
First basemansJack Corbett
greeted Hughes' successor, Har-
lan Warden, with a sharp single
to left which scored Ronan and
Lepley with the second and third
Michigan runs.
Howard Tommerlein got credit
for a hit when he beat Worden's
throw to first on an attempted
sacrifice, then went to second
while Eaddy scored when the
throw sailed off into right field
for an error on the pitcher.
Moby Benedict and Peterjohn
added two more hits to the fiasco
to shove a fourth run across be-
fore the inning ended.
The Wolverines put together
hits by Ronan and Ray Pavichev-
ich for another run in the second,
and picked up another tally in the
third on a pair of infield bingles
with a stolen base sandwiched in
Eaddy's long double, a couple
more scratch safeties, and two
walks gave Michigan two more
runs in the fourth, while the Wol-
verines capitalized on a pair of
errors by the third baseman to
gain their final counter in the

according to the Michigan coach,
the matches were a lot closer than
the point spreads indicate.
IN THE MATCH with the Tar-
heels, the lead duo of Captain
Jack Stumpfig and Bob McMasters

he sped to wins in the two mile, in
both encounters with the Pacific!

Wallingford's 9:28.6 against Stan-

BROOKLYN'S big opposition is
expected to come from the Mil-
waukee Braves, with St. Louis,
New York, Philadelphia and Cin-
cinnati in "dark horse" roles. The
Dodgers' youth, speed, depth, and
power figure to put them ahead of
the field but should Charlie Grimm
glue his crippled Braves back to-
gether in time, they could make a
real race of it.
St. Louis is shallow, New
York has good hitting but lacks
reserve pitching, Philadelphia
Just doesn't have enough guns--
and while Cincinnati has power
to spare and can be awfully
rough on a given lay it doesn't
possess the polish and pitching
depth needed for the full season

So barring another "Milwaukee
miracle" like the one last season,
the Brooks seem a solid choice.
The professionals rate rookie
manager Walter Alston's outfit as
7-10 choices for the top rung in
