THREATEN 'M', INDIANA:
llini, MSC, Iowa Track Contenders

In Initial Conference Encounter

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
and in a series of articles previewing
the coming Big Ten Track Outdoor
season. Today-The rundown on Illi-
nois, Michigan State, and Iowa.)

With 13 exhibition games under
its belt, Michigan's baseball team
plays the first of 14 Conference
games this season, as it takes on
Northwestern University at 3:30
this afternoon at Ferry Field.
Coach Ray Fisher is still unde-
cided as to who will be his starting
pitcher against the Wildcats. The
hurler will probably be chosen
from Al Levy, Don Poloskey, Dick
Peterjohn, and Bill Thurston.
Mary Wisniewski and Jim Clark
are not slated to see action today,
and appear to be the probable

starters in tomorrow's double-
header against Wisconsin.
There are no changes expected
in the remainder of the Wolverine
lineup. Jim Vukovich will be at
first, Ken Tippery at second, Moby
Benedict at shortstop, and Don
Eaddy at third base. In the out-
field will be Dan Cline, Bruce FoY,
and Howie Tommelein. Gene Sni-
der will be behind the plate.
Veterans Tony Branoff and
Frank Ronan will probably get
first call at pinch-hitting duties.
Both men have been pushed off

the starting team by promising
ing sophomores, Branoff being re-
placed by Fox in the outfield, and
Ronan by Tippery at second
base.
Northwestern will be seeking to
improve on its fifth place finish
of last season. The Purple probab-
ly will start either one of its two
aces, Ziggie Niepokoj or Don Zitek,
with another strong hurler, Dale
Pienta, in reserve,
Zitek won both his conference
starts last year, including a 2-0
no-hit victory over Iowa. Niepokoj
had a 3-3 record last season, and
now is considered to be the top
right-hander in the league ac-
cording to coach Fred Lindstrom.
The team's success this season
is highlighted by the fact that al-
though there a-e :4 lettermen re-
turning, the only veteran infielder
is third baseman Jim Bragiel. The
rest of the infield is capably filled
by sophomores.
Hitting Questionable
The only thing questionable is
the hitting department. Lindstrom
is depending on the outfielders to
provide the offensive punch. All
three of last year's outfielders,
Jack Tosh, Clyde Schoenneman,

and Dick Ranike, return to the
starting lineup.
Tosh batted .350 on the spring
trip and led the team in runs-bat-
ted-in. Schoenneran also did well
in the South, hitting at a .333
clip. Leading the team in batting
was first baseman Bruce Gordon
with .352.
Lindstrom received a big blow
last week when hard-hitting
catcher Tom Callaway was forced
to undergo a back operation. Doc-
tors say he may be ready for the
Big Ten opener.
Oosterbaank
In Search of
Michigan football hopefuls, aft-
er a Wednesday that saw practice
curtailed because of inlclement
weather, continued their spring
workouts at Ferry Field in prep-
aration for the first practice
scrimmage tomorrow afternoon.
The big problem is to find a
person capable of playing the
tackle slot vacated by Art Walker.

JOE SAVOLDI
... MSC Track Star

By MILT NATHANSON
Phi Kappa Sigma defeated Al-
pha Epsilon Pi, 4-1, yesterday aft-
ernoon behind the brilliant pitch-
ing of former grid star Bob Hurley.
Hurley had his second succes-
sive no - hitter going until Bob
Yampolsky hit a slow roller and
won the race to the bag in. the
fourth inning.
The Phi Kaps began the scoring
in the first inning when they com-
bined singles by Jose Correa and
Don Haney, along with a couple of
AEPi errors and a wild pitch to
score a run. They might have tal-
lied more if it hadn't been for
H a r v e y Rutstein's -sensational
catch of a sizzling liner which he
promptly converted into a double
play to end the inning.
Pitchers'_Battle
The game was a tight pitchers'
battle until the fourth inning
when the Phi Kaps took advan-
tage of several A E Pi errors to
score three more runs and put the
game on ice. The losing pitcher
for Alpha Epsilon Pi was Dave
Kroll.
In professional softball play Al-
pha Omega beat Phi Chi 14-9. Al-
pha Omega combined two base-
on-balls, a hit batsman and a sin-

gle for three runs in the first, and
four hits, a walk and an error for
four runs in the second. The Phi
Chi's scored three runs in the sec-
ond on two hits and two errors.
Big blows of the afternoon for
Alpha Omega was Milt Siegel's
bases-loaded homerun off reliefer
Bill Lukash, and Paul Richman's
triple. The winning pitcher was
Paul Richman while the loser was
the Phi Chi starter, Fred Sanocki.
Pitcher Hits Homer
Tau Epsilon Rho beat Phi Al-
pha Delta 8-5 behind the pitching
of Milt Landau. Landau helped
win his own game by slugging out
a homerun.
Phi Alpha Kappa defeated Al-
pha Kappa Psi 8-1. Phi Alpha
Kappa pitcher Wes Sikkema
hurled his second straight one-hit-
ter. The only hit off Sikkema was
a homerun.
In other play, the Law Club
won over Delta Sigma Pi 7-5. Al-
pha Chi Sigma beat Nu Sigma Nu
6-5. Delta Theta Phi defeated Phi
Delta Epsilon 10-9. Phi Rho Sigma
swamped Phi Omega 15-8. Phi
Delta Phi won from Alpha Rho
Chi 11-5. Sigma Alpha Mu won by
a forfeit from Alpha Phi Alpha.

Among last year's veterans
working out yesterday were Meads,
TerryBarr, Mike Rotunno, Jerry
Goebel, Jim Bates. and Jim irace
of last year's freshman team.
The coaching staff would like
to get a better look at Pace, the
flashy speedster from Little Rock,
Ark. Although changes in the half-
back slot are not in order, Pace's'
speed could make a big difference'
at that position. However, Barr,
the other candidate for this job,
has the advantage of a proven
passing arm as well as flashing
speed.
