' M' Tracksters
Begin Tune-Up

Winter winds may blow, but the
1955 Michigan track team and
Coach Don Canham are setting
their sights for the fast approach-
ing outdoor season.
As a tune-up for the spring va-
cation trip to the West Coach and
important meets following right
after the holidays, Canham is
sending a small Wolverine contin-
gent down to Cleveland and Chi-
cago for indoor competition this
weekend.
KC Meet Friday
The Knights of Columbus Meet
in Cleveland Friday night offers
some stiff competition for the Wol-
verine one mile relay quartet. Two
promising sophomores, Dick Flod-
in and Laird Sloan, will be run-
ning with sprinter Bob Brownrand
Clevelandite Grant Scruggs. The
roughest competition should come
from two fast one mile groups
from fellow Big Ten schools-In-
diana and Ohio State.
Also making the trip will be the
three sensational freshmen, pole
vaulter Eeles Landstrom, high
jumper Brendan O'Reilly, and
Geert Keilstrop in the mile. All
will be representing Michigan, al-
though competition is run on an
individual rather then a team bas-
is.
The following night will see the
Maize and Blue two mile relay

squad run in the Chicago Daily
News Relays. Juniors Dan Walter
and Hube Jones will team with
veterans John Moule and Scruggs
in the battle against flavored Syr-
acuse. Landstrom and O'Reilly
again will be competing.
Michigan will be defending the
two mile relay Saturday that it
won in last year's relays, but with-
out the services of injured880-
flash Pete Gray, Canham does not!
expect his team to repeat.
' A Month of Practice
During the month's layoff be-
tween winning the Big Ten In-
door Championships and start of
spring vacation, the tracksters
will be continuing to work out
steadily on the Ferry Field cin-
ders. The Stanford dual meet on
April 2 at Palo Alto, Calif., is ex-
pected to be a good test in a po-
tentially very successful outdoor
season.
The 22 or 23-man Wolverine
squad will then proceed on to Fres-
no State and Arizona State dual
meets on the 5th and 9th of April
before returning home.
Looking even further ahead, the
other biggest early-spring events
will be the Ohio State Relays two
weeks after classes resume and
the Drake Relays on April 29th
and 30th at Des Moines, Iowa.

To Montreal
By The Associated Press
The Detroit Red Wings and the,
Montreal Canadiens triumphed inI
the opening games of the Stanley
Cup playoffs last night, the Wings ;
downing the Toronto Maple Leafs,
7-4, and the Canadiens blanking
the Boston Bruins, 2-0.
At Detroit, linemates Dutch Rei-
bel and Gordie Howe each scored!
two goals to spark the Red Wings
to victory over Toronto in a loose,
undramatic contest. Detroit thus
maintained its season-long mast-
ery over the Leafs in games played
at the Olympia, having won six of
seven starts during the regular
season and having outscored Tor-
onto, 19-5.
At Montreal, the Canadiens em-
ployed two goalies in white wash-
ing the Bruins, thus proving to
their fans that they can win
games without their hero, Maurice
"Rocket" Richard.
Bowlers Vie
For Positions
A five-man bowling team spon-
sored by the Michigan Union will
be picked by a series of nine qual-
ifying rounds in preparation for
sending a squad that will repre-
sent Michigan in a match at Ohio
State on April 23.
All Union members are invited
to compete. Qualifying rounds are
to be bowled by this Saturday,
with the top ten men competing
on Sunday for the five team posi-
tions.

Fisher Set
To Try Out
Sophomores
By ED BERNREUTER
With a good deal of rebuilding
in store for the 1955 Wolverine
baseball squad, Coach Ray Fisher
is depending on several bright
sophomore candidates to fill these
vacancies.
Due to the adverse weather and
the need for the team to work out
in shifts because of the players'
schedules, Fisher is not yet sure
of the ability of these new men.
With the advent of spring weath-
er he will have a better chance to
give them all a good look.
Unknown Quantity
"I don't know how good they arej
yet," was Fisher's comment when
queried about particularly out-
standing prospects. He went on
further to say that "No decision
will be made now, all of them are
working hard and I don't want to3
discourage any of them until I
look at them outside."
Jim Vukovichs, seeking the first-
base job, seems to have impressed
Coach Fisher with his rapidly im-
proving batting ability and his

fielding skills. A transfer student
from Ohio Wesleyan, Ed West-
wood, and other infielders includ-
ing Ernie Meyers, Pat McEvoy,
and Ken Tippery are competing
strongly for their respective posi-
tions.
With no veteran receivers on
this year's team, the position is
wide open. In Newt Black, Frank
Szalwinski, and Gene Snider Fish-
er has three able candidates and
will have a difficult time in choos-
ing from among them.
In the pitching department, al-
ready staffed with several able
competitors from last season, Bill
Thurston is a good prospect to
make the grade. Thurston, who
also tries his hand in the outfield,
will be vieing with Jim Clark, an-
other righthander, and Don Polos-
key.

r If you've watched them on
the course, you've probably
thought: "Boy, if I could
just get my game down like
. . that!"
Constant practice is the answer, of course, but getting the best
from your equipment is just as important, too.
That's where Spalding TOP-FLITE® clubs have the edge.
They have more to offer in precision balance that gives an
absolutely uniform swing-feel with every club in the matched set.
That's the secret of Spalding SYNCHRO-DYNED® Clubs.
And, it will pay off for you from the first round. You'll make
the same shots with new uniformity. The perfect balance of
these clubs lets you swing through the ball with confidence.
Without "choking-up" or "compensating." You get the ball
away cleaner, longer, and with more shot control.
These are the clubs that have lowered handicaps by a much as
I: Spalding SYNCHRO-DYNED TOP-FLITE clubs. Your Golf
pro has them now. And, now's the time for you to start playing
better golf.

By The Associated Press
The Chicago Cubs were held to
two hits by three Cleveland pitch-i
ers yesterday, but managed to eke
out a 3-2 victory over the Indians
in an exhibition game before a
crowd of 1,357 at Tucson, Arizona.
An infield single by Eddie Miksis
and a line single by Harry Chiti
were the only hits that were given
up by Bill Wight, Don Mossi, and
Dick Tomanek. Wight walked the
first three batters to face him in
the first inning and then two
scored on a fumble by shortstop
Billy Harrell.
