Special to The Daily
KALAMAZOO - Turning in
some of their best performances
to date, Michigan cindermen, led
by double victor Fritz Nilsson, col-
lected 95 points yesterday to de-
feat both Western Michigan and
Marquette in a triangular meet.
at Kalamazoo.
With the Weather providing
some of the best running condi-
tions seen yet this spring, Wolver-
ine track men took 10 first places
out of a possible 14. Western
Michigan, which took second in
the meet with 31 points, account-
ed for three firsts, led by Ira
? Murchison, a double winner in the
* * *
MURCIIISON turned in excel-
lent times in both events, win-
ning the 100 yard dash in :09.6,
and the 220 in :21.2 Marquette col-
lected 25 points while coming in
last in the three team meet.
'M' team captain Fritz Nilsson
served notice to Big Ten weight
men that he was the one to beat,
a~s he took both the shot-put
and the discus events, breaking
Western Michigan field records
in the process. Nilsson's per-
formance was probably the best
'double' in track history.
He threw the discus 173 feet,
the second best throw of his life,
an put the shot 55 feet 2 inches,
also his second best effort. His
teammate, Roy Pella took second
in the weight events, also breaking
the old Western Michigan field
record in the discus.
IN THE HALF mile run, the
duel between Pete Gray and John
Ross, both of Michigan, turned out
to be all that was expected, as both
men turned in the best times
they've ever run over that dis-
Gray edged out Ross by a step,
with the excellent time of 1:52.1
Ross' time was 1:52.3 Strangley
enough, their first quarter mile
was far too slow, and only their
fast finishing 440 of 55 seconds

gave them the good times they
had. Michig:an's Roy Christian-
sen took third place.
Grant Sciruggs and Jack Car-
roll took 1-2 in the 440 yard run
for Michigan, also turning in their
best times so far this year.
Scrugg's winning time was :48.7,
and Carroll turned the distance in
:48.9, inches behind the winner.
* * *
JUNIOR Sielstra was a surprise
winner in tVhe 220 yard low hurdles,
taking that event for Michigan
in the time of :23.7. His teammate,
Jin Love, came in second. Sielstra
abso took second place in the broad
juimp, losing to NCAA champ
John Bennett of Marquette.
In the pole vault, Michigan's
rDave Hilberry and Rog Maughi
tied for first place, clearing the
.bear at 13 feet 4 inches. Bob Ap-
Npleman of Michigan was third,
Ilout suffered an arm injury in
This last effort. Just how bad the
ajury is isn't known yet.
Milt Mead of Michigan won the
high jump with a leap of 6 feet
5.4 inches.
The mile relay was one handily
by the Michigan foursome of Bob
Brown, Bob Rudisell, Jack Carroll,
any Grant Scruggs. Their time
wcs 3:21.1.

LAFAYETTE, Indiana - Pur-
due's golf team, led by Don Albert's
brilliant play, edged Ohio State
here yesterday to take first place
in a quadrangular meet with the
Buckeyes, Michigan and Illinois.
Michigan finished in third po-
ALBERT, one of the nation's
top collegiate golfers, shot a siz-
zling 71-71-142 to take medalist
honors for the day. Teammate
Dick Norton followed closely on
his heels, shooting a pair of 73's
for a 146 total.
Bert Katzenmeyer's Wolver-
ines placed no better than in
last week's meet. They topped
Illinois, 19-17, in the battle for
the third slot.
Bob McMasters, 72-76-148, led
Michigan. Jack Stumpfig, usually'
the low scorer, played well but ran
into some difficulty in his aft-
ernoon round.
THE CAPTAIN of the Maize and
Blue had a 75 round in the morn-
ing and was doing well as the aft-
ernoon action progressed. His tee

shot on the 120-yard, par three
thirteenth hole landed in a ra-
vine, and it took him seven more
strokes to hole out.
Especially pleasing to Kay-
zenmeyer was the constantly-
improving Chuck Blackett. The
sophomore got off to a slow
start and had a total of 81 in
the morning eighteen, but shot
an excellent 72 in the afternoon
Tad Stanford, 156, Dick Harri-
son, 165, and Lanny Reger, 170,
rounded out the Michigan scor-
ing. Stanford took many an as-
pirin tablet to relieve the pain in
his ailing shoulder.
OHIO STATE, which had easily
beaten Purdue at Columbus last
week, could not duplicate the feat
on the Boilermakers' course. The
Buckeyes lost, 19/2-162, but had
less trouble with Michigan, whom
they beat, 24-12.

Football Scrimmage Featured
ByLongRns, Sharp Passing


1 a

In a long, all-afternoon practice
which coach Bennie Oosterbaan
termed "ragged," Michigan's foo:-
ball team completed its second
week of spring practice.
The scrimmage was marked by
many breakaway runs on the part
of Tom Hendricks, Fred Baer, Dave
Hill, and Ed Hickey. The passing
attack also looked better than pre-,
vious practices, as passes clicked
for several long gains throughout
the afternoon.
** *
HEND:RICKS, while running
from the tailback position brake{
away for long runs several timesj
passed for three scores. His tre-
mendous speed enabled him to
outrn the defense on quite a fewj

occasions and he may prove to bej
a big help next fall.
Baer and Hill, the two full-
backs who are battling for the
starting assignment, broke
through the line several times.
Hickey, running from the tail-
back slot, also demonstrated
ability to break away.
The ends stood out as possibily
one of the strongest points on the
team. Ron Kramer, East Detroit
freshman, continued his fine
spring showing, scoring twice on
pass catches and proving to be ex-
tremely hard to bring down. Gerry
Williams and John Veselnak, two!
of last year's lettermen, also made
several good gains on pass recep-
CAPTAIN Ted Cachey was an-j
other standout at the seession. AlsoI
in the line, John Morrow continued
to demonstrate his versatility by
doing some sharp tackling at hisj
newly acquired tackle position.I
Jim Bates and John Peckham
handled most of the work at cen-
All four quarterbacks, lettermen
Lou Baldacci, Duncan McDonald,
and, Ray Kenega, and freshman
Jim Maddock, all threw for con-
sidareble yardage and handled the
ball well.
