Big Ten baseball teams wind up
exhibition activities this week be-
fore heading into the 1955 Confer-
ence race and Wisconsin appears
to have the best chance of de-
throning Michigan State's cham-
The two teams clash Friday at
East Lansing in a full Conference
schedule. Other games pit Illi-
nois against Minnesota, Ohio
State at Indiana, Purdue at Iowa
and Northwestern at Michigan.
Wisconsin, finising one game
behind the Spartans last year, will
field a veteran lineup including
three .300 hitters Lacked by a pair
of fine right-handed pitchers.
Centerfielder Ron L ocklin,
Catcher Carl Wagner and Third
Baseman Dick Hrlevich all batted
over .300 last year, with Locklin
and Wagner hitting at a .375 clip.
Play 5-5 Tie
The. Michigan soccer club's first
game of the season, played yester-
day afternoon at the soccer field
against Indiana Tech, ended in a
The first quarter gave Tech a
2-1 edge over Michigan, with Tony
Wallwork kicking in the only
Michigan goal and Butillos and
Arauso racking up the enemy's
tallies. The Wolverines tried hard
to score again in the closing min-
utes of the quarter, but the wind
A. was against them.
At half time, the Maize and Blue
had climbed to the lead with two
goals. The first Michigan counter
was booted in by Wallwork, and
the second by Chan Tha, who took
a kick from Don Barclay and hit
the ball between the posts with
In the third quarter, Tha made
a beautiful kick that escaped the
Tech goalie and glided in between
the goal posts, giving Michigan a
two-goal lead, but the visitors ral-
lied with two markers by Preju-
das and Teresca to tie it up. The
final goal of the quarter was scored
for the Wolverines by Wallwork.
Action slowed down in the
fourth stanza, and it looked as if
it were Michigan's match, when
Fabio Castro kicked in a Tech
goal with one minute left to make
it a 5-5 standstill.
In addition, Coach Art Mans-
field has pitchers Sheldon Rusch
and Bill Robichaud back. The two
won seven conference games last
year without a loss.
Losses Hurt State
Michigan State will be without
some of the sluggers who carried
the club with a team average of
.317 last season. Also missing is
Pitcher Bud Erickson, who won
five games against no losses.
Spartan Coach John Kobs has
had some pitching problems this
spring which may remain a sore
spot early in the campaign.
Ohio State and Michigan may
cause trouble to the leaders. They
finished in a tie for third place
last year but the Bucks looked ex-
ceptionally good on their Southern
Bob Schnabel led Ohio State
hitters with a .438 average and
three others --- including football
All - America Howard Cassady -
clipped along over .300. Pitcher
Hal Northrop is off to a blazing
start with three straight victories.
Michigan has been running into
pitching difficulties except for
Mary Wisniewski, who had a 3-2
record last year. The Detroit
southpaw hurled 26 scoreless in-
nings on the Wolverine swing
through the South this spring.
NU Banks on Hurlers
Northwestern is banking on the
strong pitching arms of Ziggie
Niepokoj and Don Zitek to remain
The Michigan-Detroit base-
ball game, scheduled for yes-
terday afternoon in Detroit,
was cancelled because of wet
grounds. The Wolverines, next
encounter will be Tuesday aft-
ernoon, when they travel to
Kalamazoo to meet Western
in the first division. Another
promising hurler is Dale Pienta,
who tossed footballs for the Wild-
cats last fall.
Indiana is without batting
champion Bob Robertson, but
Coach Ernie Andres is banking
heavily on a deep pitching staff.
Hoosier hurlers gave up only 16
runs on a nine-game Southern
trip in which Indiana won eight
Illinois hopes to pull out of a
last place 1954 tie with Purdue on
the strength of veteran pitchers
and a sophomore-studded lineup.

fielder Jim Delsing clouted homers for the Tigers yesterday as they

Bull-Running Call 'Athletes'
By DAVE GREY
The Russian sport of face-slap-
ping has never quite been able to
achieve national status.
Nor has the average sportsman
of the worldhbeenable to get par-
ticularly enthusiastic over other
unusual but legitimate sporting
events such as bull-racing or spe-
Slap for Over 30 Hours
But such "sports" have existed
and, in some extraordinary cases,
still do exist today. Take, for ex-
ample, the first official contest of
face-slapping held at Kiev, Russia,
in 1931. The object of the two-
man game was to see who could
slap and take being-slapped the
The original participants, Wasly
Berbordny and Michalko Goniusx,
swung palms at each other for
over 30 hours. After tiring out
three referees, the game was final-
ly declared a draw.
Bull-racing is another "athletic"
performance with the spectator
playing a large part. Its brief his-
tory reached a peak just before
World War I in the Netherlands
and the East Indies.
The object was to get the bulls
into a highly pitched state of ex-
citement. This was accomplished
by placing a brilliantly dressed
dancer at the finish line and hav-
ing a band play spirited music
during the running.
Perhaps the most unusual of
the non-competitive sports might
be that of spelunking, semi-popu-
lar in the 1930's in New England.
According to Frank Menke in
his "The New Encyclopedia of
Sports," "The object of the spe-
lunker is to find caves, and more
and more caves, and to explore
them to the utmost. The big thrill
comes in discovering a new and
bigger and more fantastic cave
than associate members have
found, and to discover, also, many
underground forms of life or rel-
ics, of former life."

With activity now in full swing
on the Michigan golf links, the
spectator might find it helpful to
be informed of the conference
scoring method, and how it works.
Two Types of Scoring
There are two types of scoring
used in golf, match play and medal
play, the latter being used for Big
Ten competition. This means the
total number of strokes is con-
sidered in the scoring, rather than
the total number of holes wvon. A
player may contribute a maximum
of six points to his team.
The men who compete for each
team are ranked in order from
one through six. The number one
man on a team competes against
number one on the opposing team,
number two against number two,
and so on down the line. However,
the first two duos combine to form
a foursome and the remaining
players follow suit.
The person garnering the lowest
total on the first nine holes earns
one point for his team. In the case
of a tie, each player receives one-
Best Score Earns Point
The same procedure is used on
the following nine holes. In other
words, a player taking both rounds
earns two points toward his team's
final tally. Also, when the scores
for all 18 holes are computed, the
player holding the edge captures
an extra point for his team.
The maximum number of points
a team can earn under this sys-
tem is 18, if all of its players de-
feat their opponents on every nine.
1However, in reading a cover story
of a golf match, the score may
read Michigan 23, Illinois 13. This
is due to the fact that now in all
Big Ten competition a total of 36
holes is played.
