Hold First Place Tie
With Minnesota Nine
By DAVE RORABACHER
Rallying in the last inning of
both games yesterday, the Michi-
gan diamondmen split their dou-
ble-header with Minnesota, 3-4
This leaves the two teams still
tied for first place in the Western
Conference race with identical rec-
ords of seven wins and two losses.
The exciting nightcap was neck-
and-neck down to the finalwire.
The Gophers took the early lead
before Michigan bounced ahead,
4-2, in the fourth inning. After
Minnesota garnered another tally
in the fifth the Wolverines came
back to score an insurance run in
the next stanza which seemingly
sewed up the contest.
Gophers Don't Quit
However, the Gophers refused
to lay down and die. Coming to
bat in the rain-soaked seventh and
final inning, the visitors tallied two
scores on a walk and Darrell
Cochran's homerun over the left-
centerfield fence. A previous extra
base hit was narrowly averted by
Bruce Fox's thrilling snare of Dick
Anderson's hit out to the right-
In the bottom of the seventh,
Fox singled to short followed by
Cline who bunted safely between
the mound and first. Third base-
man Don Eaddy, who had pro-
cured only one hit all afternoon,
then lined a grounder to the
shortstop who fumbled and jug-
gled the ball.
By this time Fox was streaking
toward home. The shortstop final-
ly made the throw to the plate
but the catcher failed to come up
cleanly with the ball and Fox was
safe with the winning run.

"We warn all those who lift
their dirty hands against the
peaceful reconstruction of our
country: Be careful, we strike
hard," he said.-
which he refused to forecast.
Statement to "Clear Things Up"
He said yesterday a conference
dealt with "scientific problems and
programs." In response to report-

today's statement would clear
things up so that people will "know
what to do Monday morning."

Mothers Worshipped on Annual Holiday
By ERNEST THEODOSSIN
Mothers all over the country will be opening gifts today.
This forty-first Mother's Day has been designated by President
Dwight D. Eisenhower as a time "to give public and private expression
to the esteem in which our country holds its mothers."
Lingerie, corsages and candy will be in order. Mothers can ex-
pect anything from frilly slips to potted hydrangeas.
Among card manufacturers, Mother's Day seems to be an old-f ash-
ioned subject not fit for humor. Pansies, violets and lace were the
most customary designs on cards featured in a local store.
A Card for Everybody
By yesterday afternoon most of the standard "Mother cards were
gone. However, there were still many racks filled with cards for "dear
aunts, dear grandmothers, dear nieces, dear cousins, dear daughters
and dear mothers-in-law."
One mysterious card read, "To a special friend on Mother's Day."
