Mclasters
Of'M'Teami
An Ex-Caddy
By NATE GREENE
The way to get started in golf is
to come up through the caddy
ranks.
This is the standard reply that
any professional golfer will give
when asked what he believes to
be a good beginning for a young
golfer. Taking this advice liter-
ally, Bob McMasters first started
toting bags at Detroit's Red Run
Golf Club when he was only eight
years old:
NEVER HAVING taken a pri-
vate lesson, McMasters developed
his swing as a caddy and while he
played on the Royal Oak High
School golf team. Although he
was not good enough to make the
school squad in the tenth grade, he
not only earned his letters but was
an All-State golfer the next two
years.
Bob did not limit his golfing to
high school play however. In
the 1952 state caddy tournament
he shot a fine 144 and finished
fourth. The same summer he
finished third in the -regional
Hearst Tournament. His best
showing before coming to Mich-
igan, however, was in the 1951
JayCee, when he finished second
to his present teammate, Chuck
Blackett.
McMaster's caddying paid off in
other ways besides golfing ability;
He was awarded one of the many
scholarships given each year by
the Western Golf Association.
AS A SOPHOMORE this year
McMasters is seeing regular action
on Bert Katzenmeyer"s squad. De-
spite the fact that he is playing in
Big Ten competition for the first
time, Bob has displayed some fine
golf. Especially noteworthy was
his performance at Indiana last
Monday.

Giel Pitches Four-Hitter

29 Cindermen Compete at Relay Meets

-

Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota -
Centerfielder John Wallfred
smashed a solo ninth inning home
run here yesterday to give Minne-
sota and ace hurler Paul Giel a
3-2 win over the Wolverines.
Wallfred broke up a tight pitch-
ing duel between Giel and Michi-
gan hurler Jack Ritter when he
pulled one of the latter's curve'
balls over the right field fence,
sending the partisan crowd home
happy.
* * *
GIEL was superb, fanning eight
and walking none and yielding but
four hits. Known primarily as a
fastballer, he baffled the Wolver-
ines with a fine assortment of
curves. Ray Fisher's nine couldn't
break through his offerings until
the seventh frame, when first
sacker Jack Corbett clouted a
fourmaster over the left field wall.

The Maize and Blue tallied
again in the next inning. Short-
stop Moby Benedict led off with
a single and was advanced to
third on a one-bagger by catch-
er Dick Leach. ,Ritter went out
on a grounder to Gopher second
sacker Jerry Cloutier, Leach
moving to second and Benedict
holding third. Benedict scored
as Dan Cline was thrown out on
a slow grounder to third base.
Minnesota drew first blood when
second sacker Jerry Cloutier hit'
for the circuit in the third in-
ning. They scored again in the
sixth on a single by backstop Gene
Steiger, a sacrifice by Keith East-
man, and Roger Anderson's one-
baser.
RITTER pitched well in defeat.
He fanned six, walked three, and
allowed eight safeties. His one fa-
tal mistake came in the ninth in-
ning with Wallfred at the plate.
He tried to pitch away from the

Linksters Encounter Purdue, Northwestern
in Triangular Meet; Boilermakers Favored

Be(Giel )ed

By JACK HORWITZ
Once again the Michigan golf
team' meets its seemingly weekly
rival, Purdue, along with North-
western's Wildcats, in a triangular
meet, today, on the Wolverine
home course.
For the third straight week, the
Maize and Blue linksters face pe-
rennial low scorers Don Albert and
Dick Norton and one of the strong-
est golf teams in the Western Con-
ference.
THE MICHIGAN golfers, withj
five conference losses and only'
two victories, will be battling for
a respectable record going into the'
conference championships.

once on clubs and bags.

ence dual meet lead with the
Ohio State Buckeyes, rolled to
two decisive wins over the hap-
less Wolverine linksters in a
quadrangular meet on April 24
and May 1.
Albert, one of the country's lead-
ing collegiate and amateur golf-
ers, scored two blazing 71's last
Saturday to take the medalist
honors. Norton. also a top flight
amateur, captured the medalist
honors the previous week with a
71-72.
* * *
IN ADDITION to Albert and
Norton, Coach Sam Voinoff will
have an equally experienced man
in the third position. Bob Ben-
ning, who has shown somebsensa-
tional playing in his collegiate ca-
reer, will be as hard to beat as
the number one and two men. In
a match with Kentucky, Benning
proved his ability by scoring a siz-
zling 66.
Northwestern will probably
prove niiuch easier prey than the
Boilermakers. The Wildcats have
a weak nucleus around which
their team is built. The loss of
three top flight lettermen by
graduation and last year's fresh-
man squad providing little tal-
ent has hampered Northwest-

ern's improvement and, if any-
thing, started the squad on the
downgrade.
Louis Woodworth, a quarter-
finalist in the N.C.A.A. champion-
ships last summer, will fill the
number one position for the Wild-
cats. Two other lettermen will be
in the number two and three posi-
tions. Captain Carl Stotz and
Howard Weyberg, along with Tull
Monsees are the only other return-
ing lettermen.
* * *
FROM the Michigan standpoint,
the outlook for the future is ra-
ther bleak. Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer has attempted to field a
team that would vary in strength
according to the positions. So far,
he hasn't been very successful.
The two top men, Captain
Jack Stumpfig and sophomore
Bob McMasters, have been scor-
ing respectably but the rest of
the team has fallen far below
expectations.
In an effort to field a better
scoring team, Katzenmeyer has in-
serted Lanny R.eger in the num-
ber six position and pulled Andy
Anderews from the lineup.
* * *
THE FIVE losses of the Maize
and blue links squad has not low-
ered the morale of the golfers. The
young team has a fighting spirit
and each match shows a stronger
effort to win. The team has shown
slight improvement in the previous
matches, especially in the number
three and four slots.
The injury to number five play-
er Tad Stanford, has definitely
hurt the chances of the Michigan
Squad. Stanford has been bothered
with a recurrence of an old foot-
ball injury in his shoulder and ex-
periences great pain in his rounds
of golf. During the quadrangular
meet last Saturday, Stanford swal-
lowed many an aspirin to try to
relieve the pain.
Today's match should be the
final test for the Michigan golf
team as to whether they will fin-
ish among the first three in the
Western Conference.

By DON LINDMAN
Some of the greatest collegiate
track talent in the nation, includ-
ing 22 of Michigan Coach Don
Canham's men, is assembled at
Champaign, Illinois, for the first
annual running of the Big Ten
Outdoor Relays in the University
of Illinois' Memorial Stadium to-
day.
The meet promises to present a
preview of the field and hurdle
events in the coming Big Ten
championships. Illinois, Indiana,
and Michigan are expected to pro-
vide most of the excitement for
the track fans in attendance this
afternoon.
* * *
THE Wolverines appear strong-
est in the two-mile, mile, and 880-
yard relays, and in the shot put,
discus, and high jump. In the
two-mile relay, Michigan boasts
the top quartet in the nation and
should have little trouble this af-
ternoon. John Moule, Roy Chris-
tiansen, John Ross, and Pete Gray
will carry the Maize and Blue col-
ors. Gray, Ross, and Christiansen
have posted three of the top four
times for the half mile in the con-
ference this season.
In the mile relay, Bob Brown,
Dave Hessler, Grant Scruggs,
and Jack Carroll will face strong
competition from Illinois and In-
diana. The Illinois quartet set
a Drake Relays record two weeks
ago with a sparkling 3:12.6, only
two-tenths of a second away
from the Big Ten mark.
The 880-yard relay entry of John
Vallortigara, Hessler, Carroll, and
Scruggs is co-favorites with the
Purdue squad to cop the event.
Vallortigara and Hessler have run
the two best 220-yard dashes in
the conference this season.
WOLVERINE Captain Fritz Nils-
son is the heavy favorite to rule
both the shot put and discus. Field
events for each team will be scored
as the combined total of its two
entries, and the Michigan entry
of Nilsson and Roy Pella rules as
the top duo in the event.
Santee May Run
Against Bannister
LAWRENCE, Kan. - (') - Wes
Santee of Kansas, America's
greatest miler, declared yesterday
that he would welcome an oppor-
tunity to run against Roger Banni-
ster of England, conqueror of the
magic 4-minute mile.
Earlier Friday Bannister, who
ran the mile in 3:59.4 Thursday,
said he "would be more interested
in beating Santee alone than in
achieving a faster time for the
mile."
"I certainly would welcome the
chance to meet Bannister," San-
tee said. "Ie is the record holder
and he is the man to beat. I would!
consider it a distinct honor if
some sort of a match could be ar-
ranged between us."

JOHN VALLORTIGARA
. ..speedy sprinter

The Michigan entry of Milt
Mead and Mark Booth promises
to be one of the best in the high
jump field. Ron Mitchell, who
has cleared 6-914 this season,
and Dick Wham make the Illini
the pre-meet favorite in the
event.
Pella is also entered in the lone
novelty event of the afternoon, the
100-yard weightmen's dash, which
is only open to the athletes who
usually toil at the shot put and
discus.
CANHAM is entering Jim Love
and Junior Stielstra in both the
high and low hurdles, but the Wol-
verines hurdle stars are rated in
back of the power-packed Illinois

hurdle and dash crew. Jim Nagle,
Joe Corley, Willard Thomson, and
Cirilo McSween give the Illini the
cream of the conference hurdlers,
while Corley, Nagle, McSween, and
sprint champ Willie Williams make
the Illini the team to beat in
the 440-yard relay. Vallortigara,
Brown, Love, and Bob Rudisell will
carry the Wolverine hopes.
Wolverine pole vaulter Roger
Maugh will get plenty of competi-
tion from Dale Foster, who cleared
13' 9" for the Illini last week, 1953
outdoor champion Jim Wright, al-
so of Illinois, and Northwestern's
Bob Ehrhart, who also vaulted 13'
9" to win the 1954 indoor title.
Maugh's teammate will be John
Hilberry, who has cleared 13' 4"
this season.
OTHER Wolverine entries are
Stielstra and Bill Williams in the
broad jump; Gray, Rudisell, Ross,
and George Lynch in the distance
medley; and Ron Wallingford and
Al Lubina in the special one and
one-half mile race.
Seven other members of the
Michigan track squad will see
action at Bowling Green, Ohio,
this afternoon as part of the field
at the Bowling, Green Relays.
The Maize and Blue has entered
a two-mile relay team of Dan Wal-
ter, George Jayne, Bob Half and
Geoff Dooley. Dooley, Walter, Hall,
and Jack Clements will form a mile
relay squad, and Walter, Hall,
Clements, and Bill Barton will be
the distance medley quartet. High
jumper Stephen Hauser will be the
only Wolverine field entry.

Except for a miscue by Gopher
