M Nine To Meet OSU
In Crucial Game Today

A game but weary Michigan
baseball team may lose its chance
to enter the National Collegiate
Athletic Association's playoffs to-
Michigan must defeat Ohio
State here or it will be eliminated
from the Big Ten race and lose
' the right to defend its national
baseball championship.
The same situation holds true
for tomorrow's twin-bill with In-
diana at Ferry Field, since one
defeat for the Wolverines in this
final weekend of conference acti-
vity will deny them any possibil-
ity of gaining Big Ten laurels.
Today's contest will begin at
3:30 p.m. and tomorrow's after-
noon's doubleheader is scheduled
to start at 1:30.
Chances Slim
Coach Ray Fisher admits that
Michigan's chances are exceeding-
ly slim. Even if the Maize-an-
Blue wins its three games, first-
place Michigan State will have to
lose two of three, Ohio must drop
two of three, and third-place Wis-
consin must bow in one of its
weekend games.
It appears doubtful that the
above combination will follow,
since MSC plays seventh-place In-
diana today while Michigan is
1 combating the runner-up Buck-
eyes. O;U and Michigan State
meet tomorrow at East Lansing,
and this twin-bill could very well
decide the outcome of the stand-
ings. Wisconsin, playing a dark
horse role with Michigan, could
complicate matters by outscoring
y Iowa and Minnesota.
Fisher has not committed him-
self as to today's starting pitcher,
- but soph Dick Peterjohn is a like-
ly choice. The southpaw's two ex-
cellent relief stints against the
Spartans last week may have earn-
ed him a starting role.
Ebert Faces MSC
Since the Buckeyes will save star
hurler Paul Ebert for one of to-
morrw's games' at East Lansing,
Hal Northrop or Dick Finn will
draw, the, starting assignment for

today's contest. OSU boasts the
league's leading hitter, first sacker
Don Kelly. Gene Longbrake, Bill
Wisler and Charley Ellis are also
counted on by coach Marty Karow
to give Wolverine hurlers trouble.
Indiana, although mired in sev-
enth place, will be no pushover
in tomorrow's games. Coach Ernie
Andres has a sophomore-studded
aggregation which has been con-
stantly improving since the start
of the season. Outfielder Jim Rob-
ertson is leading the Hoosiers at
the plate with a .378 average. Art
Herring, who doubles as a hurler
and outfielder, is hitting confer-
ence hurlers at a .333 clip.
Andres has not disclosed tomor-
row's starters, his choices hinging
on the treatment of the Hoosier
mound corps by Michigan State
today. If Michigan is still in the
race by then, Fisher is likely to
use his whole staff in an effort
to gain a playoff berth.
gan participated in America's first
intersectional football games back
in 1881, when it played Harvard,
Yale, and Princeton in that order.

While Michigan's crack two-
mile relay travels to Los Angeles
for an attempt at the world rec-
ord in that event this evening,
Michigan State trackmen will as-
sault a weakened Wolverine squad
here in the 'M'-MSC Relay Dual
The two-mile relay team will be
competing in the Coliseum Re-
lays in L.A., and is expected to
receive close competition. It is
hoped that they will be pushed
hard enough to break the world
record in that event. The record
stands at 7:29.4, and was set after
the last Olympic Games by an
all-star tea mof Horace Ashen-
felter, John Barnes, Mal Whitfield,
and Reggie Pearman.
Against this, Michigan coach
Don Canham is pitting half-milers
John Moule (1:58.4), Roy Christ-
iansen (1:53.4), John Ross (1:52.3)
and Pete Gray (1:52.1). Their total
time, minus 1.5 seconds for a run-
ning start,* would shade the old
standard by three tenths of a
There are two drawbacks how-
ever. One: the times listed are the
fastest the men have ever run,
and these performances may not
be repeated at Los Angeles, and
two: anchor man Pete Gray suf-
fered a pulled muscle last week
which may slow him considerably,
although trainers say he should
have no difficulty running.
Should Down Spartans
In the relays meet in Ann Ar-
bor, the Michigan squad, though
weakened by the absense of Moule,
Christiansen, Ross and Gray,
should not have too difficult a~
time handling Michigan State.
The Wolverine team, which cap-
tured five titles in the Big Ten
Relays May 8, expects trouble only
in the 440 yard relay, the hurdles,
the 150 yard dash, and the two-
mile relay.
The Spartan quarter-mile relay
too kthird in the Conference Re-
lays, while the M' squad failed to
place. MSC hurdlers John Cor-
belli and John Savoldi have both
gone 14.5 over the highs, and Sa-
voldi has done 23.7 for the lows.
In the 150 yard dash, Spartan
sprinter Ed Brabham should have
it all his own way, should he run.
He will be running the 440 relay,
however, and may also compete
in the 880 relay. Brabham would
go against Wolverines Bob Rudi-

sell, Bill Barton, and Pete Sut-f
With Michigan's number-one
two-mile relay out on the Westl
Coast, MSC should have an easy
time taking first in that event.
They finished only two-tenths of
a second behind the Wolverines
in the Big Ten Relays, turning
in a time of 7:39.2.
The half-mile relay could prove
to be a tight race. The Michigan
quartet of John Vallortigara,
Dave Hessler, Bob Brown, and
Grant Scruggs beat the Spartan
half-mile crew in the Big Ten
Relays by a margin of four yards,
but this isn't enough to guarantee
complete immunity. The mile re-
lay team, however, is almost a
cinch to take that event. The
foursome of Rudisell, Hessler,
Scruggs, and anchor-man Jack

AftEc beating Michigan State
on Tuesday, 6-3, to gain "sweet
revenge," of an earlier 8-1 defeat,
the Michigan tennis team will be
pitted against a comparatively
weaker University of Detroit squad
this afternoon on the Varsity ten-
nis courts.
In the words of captain Al
Mann, "Things are looking up."

surprise, especially to the los-
er's coach Frank Beeman who
throughout the match felt the
tide would have to turn soon. But
it never did.
Mann played the best match
that he has played all season in
licking Jim Pore, 6-3, 7-5. He
made fewer errors and seemed to
have recaptured the spirited drive
that he is capable of showing.
Number two man Pete Paulus also
had to be in top form, as he ral-
lied strongly to win his singles
from Spartan Dick Menzel, 1-6,
6-1, and 6-4.
Downed Again
Bob "Pancho" Paley, in the
midst of a losing streak, again

was up against one of the Big
Ten's best in the person of soph-
omore Dave Brogan. Brogan man-
aged to wear down Paley, 6-2,

The rest of the squad's perform-
ance was particularly encouraging.
Bob Nederlander and Bob Sassone
both won, while Bob Mitchell gave
further indication that he has a
good chance to walk off with the
Big Ten number five singles
championship in the Conference
meet a week from this Saturday
as he whipped John Brogan, 6-4,
Wolverine doubles play was
weak with only Mann and Neder-
lander able to win in the number
two slot. Pore and Menzel took
the measure of Paulus and Paley
to the tune of a 7-5, 6-3 count,

while Mitchell and Ron Morgan
bowed before Dave Brogan and
Jim Beechum.
Coach Bill Murphy knows little
of what the University of Detroit
has to offer in the matoh that will
start here at 2:30. Detroit has
lost to both Michigan State and
Western Michigan by 9-0 scores.
Murphy intends to rest some of
his top men by using Morgan, a
junior from Mason, Michigan, in
the number five position and sen-
ior Bob Moore, hailing from Mus-
kegon Heights, in the last slot.
This is Moore's first year on the
team and his first chance to play
this season. Mitchell and Sassone
