Wolverines Beat Wildcats in Opening-BigJ

en Tilt

Mound Duels,
-M Softball
Pitchers' duels were the order
of the day yesterday at Ferry
Field in the Independents soft-
ball league. Gil Kombrink led the
IRS Club to a slim 5-4 victory over
the topnotch Farouk's Five, as
r Jay Goold's sixteen strikeouts were
not enough to overcome Kom-
brink's ten.
Behind the fireball pitching of
Dick Ahlbeck, the Firehouse Five
plus Four club outslugged the
Toads to win, 6-5. -
In another one-run-margin-
win, Physics defeated Political
Science 6-5. Bill Davis gave up six
hits, but his teammates walloped
out eight hits to give Davis the
winning margin.
Lopsided Contests
In the most lopsided games of
the day, the Willow Run Research
r Center A team smothered the
hapless Psychology B club 25-6;
at the same time, the Willow Run
' B team was being pounded for 19
runs by the Museum squad to
finally lose 19-2.
The Mugwumps showed that it
does not always take a nine man
team to come out on the top side
of the score as they defeated the
Nakamura nine 12-10. -
Doug Lootens completely domi-
nated the Foresters, allowing only
two hits and striking out six men,
to lead Gamma Delta to a 13-2
In other games, the Evans
Scholars behind pitcher George
Hoaglin defeated Owen 9-3. Eng-
lish swamped the Navy-Air nine
with a score of 17-4. The Hawai-
ians also garnered an easy win as
the AFROTC club failed to show
up for the game.

Three Souhoii

'SAYS WHO?'-Northwestern pitcher Ziggie Niepokoj heatedly
questions the judgment of the plate umpire, who said one of
Niepokoj's tosses was a ball. Wildcat catcher Tom Callaway looks
on, also obviously disgusted with the call.

Troy Draws
with Pastrano


CHICAGO OP)--Willie Pastrano,
19-year-old boxing cutie from
Miami Beach, Was battled to a 10-
round draw by seasoned Willie
Troy of the Bronx at the Chicago
Stadium Friday night.
Two officials called the hard-
fought nationally televised scrap
a deadlock and the third, judge
Spike McAdams voted for Past-
rano, 95-90. The deadlocked bal-
lots, 96-96 by referee Frank Gil-t
mer and 94-94 by judge Ed Hinz
made it an official draw.
Ten Points
Under the Illinois scoring sys-
tem a maximum of 10 points per
round is awarded to the round
winner and any lesser number of
points to the round loser.
The Associated Press saw it for
Pastrano, seeking his 10th straight
victory, by 98 to 95.
Pastrano weighed 166 and Troy
An erroneous impression that
Pastrano won on points was given
on television.

liant TV debut at the Chicago
Stadium last month against Al
Andrews, found Troy a rugged op-

Combine Effo
Wisniewski, Peterjoh
Wisconsin in Double
Michigan's sophomore - studdedI
pitching squad combined its effortsc
yesterday afternoon to give thet
Wolverines a 5-2 victory overt
Northwestern in the opening gamec
of the Western Conference base-
ball season.
Sophomores Bill Thurston, who
was the winner, Glenn Girardin,
and Jim Clark set down the Wild-<
cats on five hits. Michigan rapped
out nine hits, including three I
doubles, in its winning effort.
Today, the Maize and Blue meet
Wisconsin in a doubleheader start-1
ing at 1:30 at Ferry Field. Fisher1
indicated that he would probably
start pitcher Dick Pterjohn in the
first game and Mary Wisniewski in
the second.
Benedict Opens Scoring
The Wolverines opened the scor-
ing in the first inning when short-
stop Moby Benedict walked and1
scored on a double by thirdbase-
man Don Eaddy. This was the first
of four hits for Eaddy, who had a
perfect day at the plate.
The Maize and Blue followed
with single runs in the third ,and
fourth frames to give them a lead
which they never lost. Benedict
led off in the third with a single,
advanced to third on two succes-
sive outs and scored on Eaddy's
single through the pitcher's box
into centerfield.
In the fourth, Walks to Howie
Tommelein and Gene Snider, a
passed ball by Wildcat catcher,
Tom Callaway, and a fielder's
choie by Thurston produced an-
other tally.
Northwestern bounced back in.
the fifth inning with a single
run. Sophomore shortstop Ed
Broeker tripled to deep right cen-
ter and when Wolverine second-
baseman Ken Tippery hit him in
the back on a relay throw to third,;
Broeker scored.
Wildcats Score Via Walks
The Wildcats added another run
in the sixth on four walks issued
by Thurston. After the Michigan
pitcher forced in a run with one
of the bases on balls, Coach Ray
Fisher sent in Girardin. He ended
the inning by getting Wildcat
pitcher Ziggie Niepokoj to hit into
a double play.
The Wolverines added two in-
surance runs in the eighth frame.
Snider led off with a single and'
Clark followed with a bunt nar
the first base line. Snider rolled
into the Northwestern secondbase-
man, "Buzz" Haviland, who drop-
ped the ball and both men were.
safe on base.
After Benedict moved the men
along on a grounder to the pitch-
er, centerfielder Bruce Fox hit a
long sacrifice fly to center, scoring
Snider. Captain Danny Cline fol-
lowed with his second sucessive
double, scoring Clark.
The victory over Northwestern
was the ninth for the Wolverines
this season. They have lost four
and tied one. The Wildcats now
have an 8-3 record.
Pitchers Show Control
After some poor pitching and
hitting in the early part of the
season, Michigan is finally round-
ing into shape. The three sopho-

rts in 5-2 Win

header This Afternoon
mores showed some good control,
especially Clark, who struck out
three men in the three innings he
worked. Thurston had six strike-
outs and five walks to his credit in
the 51/3 innings he pitched.
The hitting department is still
a little weak. However, the Wol-
verines may get a lift from Ead-
dy, who showed yesterday that he
still has his batting eye and can
hit when he has to.
The doubleheader with Wiscon-
sin this afternoon should prove
tougher going. Previously rated as
the "team to beat" this season, the
Badgers lost their first Big Ten
game to Michigan State, yester-
Spartan pitchers Dick Idakow-
ski and Jack Wenner allowed the
Badgers only five hits while Mich-
igan State was piling up 22 safe-
ties. Wenner relieved Idakowski
in the third inning after the latter
had hit two men.

Golf Squad
Holds Meet
At Columbus
The Wolverine links squad today
journeys to Columbus where it
will meet Purdue and Ohio State
in its first Big Ten triangular meet
of the season. This will be Coach
Bert Katzenmeyer's first chance to
see how his sophomore-studded
team compares with top-flight
Ohio State, the 1954 Big Ten
golf champs, and Purdue, number
four in the Big Ten race last year,
both have veteran squads return-
Boilermaker Coach Sam Voi-
noff has what he terms "a well-
balanced team" in his six return-
ing lettermen and a like number of
promising sophomores. Heading
the list of lettermen is, Captain
Don Albert, a senior who in 1953
won the Big Ten championship.
Ohio State Favored
Ohio State, who last year
placed four men in the top ten
golfers in the Big Ten champion-
ship meet, will have enough re-
turning lettermen to make the
Buckeyes a favorite to recapture
the Big Ten crown.
In their first match of the sea-
son, the Boilermakers topped Wis-
consin, U. of Detroit, and Michi-
gan State in a quadrangular meet.
Coach Katzenmeyer will again
be juggling his squad in an at-
tempt to find the top combination
to use in the Big Ten champion-
ship meet. He indicated that OSU
and Purdue are probably the top
contenders for the conference
crown this year.
The meet today should provide
an indication of just how far
Michigan's relatively inexperi-
enced squad will go this year.
Two Straight Wins
Michigan now has two straight
victories under its belt, the latest
a 2512-102 drubbing of Michigan
State. State's squad was, however,
a completely inexperienced team
without a single returning letter
Katzenmeyer was disappointed
in the team's showing except for
the performances of Bob McMas-
ters and Henry Loeb. McMasters'
75 against State was low for Mich-
igan and Loeb was right behind
with a 77. This was Loeb's first ap-
pearance in college competition.
John Schubeck, Ken Meyers,
and Steve Uzelac turned in cred-
itable 76's in the afternoon, but
their morning rounds when they
were plagued by the elements were
something less than spectacular,

Night Editor

If they paid off on quantity,
Michigan would win it all.
This is the situation this morn-
ing, as some 35 Michigan track-
men prepare to see action in to-
day's giant Ohio Relays in Co-
lumbus, Ohio.
This huge contingent, one of
the largest in Michigan track his-
tory, is entered in some 15 events,
as some 400 college athletes con-

verge on the huge Buckeye Bowl
in what will be the first major out-
door track meet held in the mid-
west so far this spring.
No team score will be kept, but"
Michigan will carry home some of
the individual glory. The best
Michigan chance lies in the dis-
tance medley relay, with Laird
Sloan, Dan Walters, Hobe Jones
and John Moule.
Middle distance runner Pete
Gray will not compete in the Re-
lays due to a light illness. Gray,
however, will definitely, be avail-
able for other meets.

Swanson, in charge of the Mich-
igan cindermen while head coach
Don Canham is in Germany con-
ducting a series of clinics for the
U. S. Army, is not too sure of the
opposition, so therefore can't pre-
dict many of the outcomes.
It is known however, that such
cinder powers as Indiana (minus
relay star Lon Robinson, who pull-
ed a muscle the other day), Penn
State, and most of the Ohio
schools will be on hand.

Swanson, on the basis of this
opposition, also sees possible Wol-
verine victories in the sprint med-
ley, the mile relay, and the 880
relay. Slowly fondling his pipe,
the bow-tied Swanson added "but
if Pittsburgh enters the meet,
we're dead in the mile relay with
Arnie Sowell running anchor."
Swanson went on to view this
meet as a "warm-up for the com-
ing meets-mainly our encounter
with Penn State and Navy in the
East on May 7. Our meet next
week at Drake is merely for a se-
lect few. We won't start worrying
about the Big Ten meet until Gal-
ham gets back."
The meet tomorrow will also tell
if big Ron Kramer can shot put.
Also much in evidence will be
