(Continued from Page 1)
°l The initial contest almost de-
veloped into as thrilling a finish
as the action kept the fans' hearts
in their throats until the final out.
Wolverines Trail
Trailing by one run entering the
bottom of the ninth, the first two
Wolverines were quickly retired.
Then pitcher Mary Wisniewski
strode t5 the plate and dismissing
the fact that he had struck out
threw times in a row, he promptly
smashed out a double to left-cen-
ter and amid the frantic cheers of
the Michigan fans he desperately
tried to stretch it into a triple.
But a fine relay throw caught him
sliding to end the contest.
The day's results left many fans
muttering and moaning about the
slow start to which the Maize and
Blue are constantly subjected. In
both of the games as well as in
Friday's contest the opposing
teams were allowed to score nearly
all their runs in the first two in-
nings, thus setting the stage for
Michigan's attempted comebacks.
Both ends of the twinbill yes-
terday started off in almost identi-
cal fashion. In each game Gopher
leadoff man Ken Yackel singled to
open the first inning followed by
Co-captain Dick Anderson's trip-
les.
In the first game the Minnesota

with two singles and two doubles
plus a base on balls to build their
lead to 4-0.

a pass issued to Eaddy was fol-I
lowed by second sacker Ken Tip-
pery's first Big Ten homerun.
In the seventh the Wolverines
again built up a scoring potential
as they loaded the bases on a pass
issued to Jim Vukovich and singles
by Howie Tommelein and Gene
Snider. Pitcher Rod Oistad's wild-
ness finally caught up with him as
he walked Benedict to force in the
third and final run for the Wolver-
ines. Fox hit into a double play
to eliminate the scoring opportu-
nity.
The fourth stanza furnished
much of the excitement in the
nightcap. With the Gophers lead-
ing 2-1 Wolverine hurler Bill
Thurston lost control and hit Bill
Horning with a pitched ball.
On a sloppy pickoff attempt andI
a passed ball, Horning advancedl
to third. Gene Martin laid down aI
bunt toward shortstop. Thurston
fielded the ball awkwardly then
hesitated before throwing to Sni-
der at the plate.
Horning came charging in and
slid. Snider charged out and tried
to make the putout but failed to
get the ball on Horning. Horning
missed touching the plate,. As the
head umpire had made no call on
the play Snider stepped on the
plate whereupon the ump called
Morning out.
The fielding in the middle of the
second contest left much to be de-
sired often sinking to a sandlot
level. On at least two different
occasions Michigan's attempted
thwartings of stolen bases result-
ed in the ball rolling past both the
shortstop and second baseman and
out into centerfield.

Beat Badger
Netmen, 8-1
Special to The Daily
Michigan's sparkling tennis
squad poured on the coal yester-
day,dand steam-rolled overyWis-
consin, 8-1.
Barry MacKay got the ball roll-
ing in the number one singles
match as he downed the Badger's
great Warren Mueller in straight
sets, 6-3 and 6-2, and the Wol-
verines were never headed.
Mark Jaffe sustained Michigan's
only loss in one of the toughest
duels of the day when Wisconsin
Captain Jack Vincent put on a
display of dazzling serves that
Jaffe couldn't cope with, to win
the match, 9-7, 6-2. Vincent, who
held down number one slot for
the Badgers last year, dropped to
second position when Mueller re-
turned from the Air Force this
year and recaptured first position
on the team.
Come From Behind
Two Wolverines, Bob Neder-
lander and Pete Paulus, got into
hot water early in their matches,
but came from behind to win. Ned-
erlander faced John Schmitt
across the net in the number four
singles match. Nederlander reg-
istered a 3-6 deficit in the first
set, but got stronger as the battle
wore on, and rallied to win the
next two, 6-3, 6-4.
Badger John Wingstrom edged
past Pete Paulus in the sixth sing-
les in the first sets, 7-5, but Paulus
came back in the final two sets
to drub Wingstrom, 6-1, 6-2.
Potter Wins
In the other singles matches,
Dick Potter posted a short win
over Jack Schmidtman, 6-1, 6-4,
in the number three match, and
Al Mann made quick work of
dropping William Ziemer in the'
number five match, 6-0, 6-3.
The number one doubles teams
' put on the most spectacular battle
of the afternoon. MacKay and
Potter teamed up to fight it out
with Vincent and Schmidtman.
Great saves and hard-hit, well
placed shots were featured by both
Record Lap
Arnie Sowell, University of
Pittsburgh star, ran one of the
fastest quarter miles in the his-
tory of track yesterday.
The 20-year-old junior ran
his anchor 440 yards in the mile
relay in :45.4, beating the world
record :46.0 set in 1948 by Herb
McKenley. Sowell's perform-
ance will not replace McKen-
ley's record, because split times
in relays are unofficial since
the runners have the advantage
of a flying start.
teams in the event, but the Wol-
verines handily took the first set,
6-3. The intensity of the struggle
was well shown in the second set
when the Badgers held even for
twelve games only to lose the
thirteenth and fourteenth to give
Michigan the second set, and the
match, 8-6.
Jaffe Gets Revenge
In the number three doubles
match,hJaffe got his revenge for
his earlier loss. He and Bob Paley
handed a bitterly contested de-
feat to Ziemer and Ray Damadian,
ironically by the same score as
the first doubles match, 6-3, 8-6.
The number two doubles duel
found Mann and Nederlander
teamed up against Mueller and
Schmitt. The Wolverine duo made
short work of this match, 6-2,
6-3.

Overwhelm
'M' Linksters
By JUDIE CANTOR
Michigan's golfers might have
spent a more enjoyable afternoon
yesterday, if they spent it at Fer-
ry Field watching the doublehead-
er.
As it was, the day proved very
dismal for Bert Katzenmeyer's
squad, as it continued in its down-
ward trend of past weeks by bow-
ing to both Purdue and Ohio State.
OSU downed the Wolverines
19-17, and Purdue trampled them
231/-18%. This last score was so
high because a seven-man team
was used.
Nowhere Near Capabilities
The links team played nowhere
near its capabilities. Surprising-
ly, low men for Michigan were

Special to The Daily
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.-Fan-
tastic is the only way to describe
Michigan's 85%/2-62%/4-24x2 trian-
gular meet win over Penn State
and Navy here yesterday.
Eleven Wolverine athletes had
to turn in the best performances
of their lives to beat Penn State,
one of the nation's top three dual
meet teams. Six Lion Field records
were equaled or broken in what
Coach Don Canham calls, "The
greatest triangular meet that I
have ever seen."
Johnson Brilliant
Leading the list of brilliant in-
dividual records was John John-
son, who ran the 100-yd. dash in
a blazing :09.6 only to be beaten
by inches by the nation's top
sprinter, Art Pollard of Penn State.
For Johnson, this knocked three-
tenths of a second off his previous
best time of :09.9.
Grant Scruggs turned in his best
mark of :48.2 in the 440, while
Laird Sloan took a second to his
teammate with a time of :48.6,
also the fastest he has ever done.
220 low hurdler Jim Love nipped
Rod Perry by a hair in upsetting
another of the nation's best from
Penn State. Both men were timed
in :23.3, while sixth place was re-
corded only seven-tenths of a sec-
ond behind.
Dick Flodin and Bob Brown took
second and third respectively be-
hind Pollard in the 220 with their
best performances outdoors of
:21.2 and :21.4. Pollard equalled
his own previous home meet rec-
ord with another sizzling time of
:20.8.
Feat Carryover
The list of Wolverine feats car-
ried over into the field events.
Howie Liverance took the high
jump with his best leap of 6'4%",
only an inch off the Penn State
mark. Improving pole vaulter Bob
Appleman won his specialty when
he went 13'8", two inches better
than he has managed to do be-
fore. Wolverine Tom Skimming
also turned in a more-than-cred-
itable 13'4" to tie for second place.
Further key points were added
in the broad jump with the dif-
ference between'placing first or
fourth a matter of only two-and-
one-half inches. Junior Stielstra
and Tom Hendricks set individual
outdoor records in placing one-
two. Stielstra lunged 23' 37%" to
beat teammate Hendricks' 23' 2%/4".
Sophomore Dave Owen contin-
ued his outstanding performance
in the shot with a second place
1 -

toss of 54'3", only a fraction off
his best heave of 54'4%/2".
Climaxing the almost unbeliev-
able afternoon was the last-event
mile relay, which Michigan won in
3:13.5, the second fastest time re-
corded in the country this year.
The fitting finish saw anchor-
man Scruggs pick up 13 yards in
the. final lap to snap the tape by
a foot over Penn State's Bruce
Austin. All members of the mile
relay team (Brown, Pete Gray,
Sloan, and Scruggs) turned in
their best 440 times with Scruggs'
flying finish of 46.9 particularly
strong.
Atmosphere Right
Canham attributes the brilliant
Michigan showing to several fac-
tors. First, he feels the "atmos-
phere was just right." Nearly 5,-
000 spectators were on hand for
the much publicized meet. The
crack Penn State squad was the
favorite on paper, and it was
clear to the whole Michigan team
that average p erf or m an c e s
wouldn't be enough.
Secondly, Canham feels that the
taking of the first three places in
the mile run started the Wolver-
ines off "right"-in a winning way.
The latter factor always rates as
an important variable in any track
meet.
John Moule won the mile in
4:18.5, although he was deliberate-
ly pacing himself to run later in
the 880. Close behind Moule was
Hobe Jones in 4:18.7 and Al Lu-
bina in 4:20.0. Lubina was able
'to eclipse 10 seconds from his most
recent mile run outdoors.
A third factor influencing the
performances might also be that
the meet was in doubt up until the
third from last event. Ron Wal-
lingford came through in the two
mile run with a time of 9:24.7 to
cinch the meet for Michigan, but
it took another strong finish to

SOPHOMORE JOH1N JOHNSON'S blazing time of :09.6 for the
hundred yard dash was not quite good enough as he finished
second to Penn State's Art Pollard in the Penn State-Navy track
meet yesterday.

SUMMER TAN THIRD:
Swaps Beats Favored Nashua in Derby

By The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE (P) -- Swaps, a
chestnut speedball owned by a for-
mer Arizona cowpunch, o u t -
fought the favored Nashua yester-
day to capture the Kentucky Der-
by.
A screaming crowd of some 100,-
000 at Churchill Downs saw Swaps
take the lead soon after the start
of the mile and one quarter clas-

sic for 3-year-olds, then make it
stick in a pulsating stretch dash.
He became the second California-
bred horse to capture the run for
the roses.
The winner, owned by Rex Ells-
worth, California's leading thor-
oughbred owner, and ridden by
Champion jockey Willie Shoemak-
er, never gave Nashua an inch as
he swept under the finish wire to
grab $108,400 from the total swag
of $152,500.
Nashua, from the world famous
Belair stud of William Woodward,
Jr., New York, and ridden by the
premier jockey, Eddie Arcaro, gave
it a big try. But Swaps legged it
across the finish line with a length
and a half of daylight between
him and Nashua. It was one of the
fastest Derbies on record.

Mrs. John W. Galbreath's well
regarded Summer Tan finished
third, 6/2 lengths behind Nashua.
Four more lengths back was Rac-
ing Fool, from the Cain Hoy sta-
ble.
The clockers caught Swaps,
sleek son of the imported Khaled
out of Iron Reward, in a flashy 2
minutes, 1 4-5 seconds, only two
fifths of a second slower than the
track and Derby record hung up
Whirlaway in 1941. The time ties
Twenty Grand, 1931 winner, as the
fourth fastest Derby ever run.

Andy Andrews and Steve Uzelac,
although they had seen no com-
petition during the preceding two
weeks. Uzelac played only one
match, against Don Granger of
Purdue, shooting 77-79-156.

greatly disappointed in the per-
The Wolverines failed to show any
signs of recovering from their
slump. With the Conference meet
only two weeks away, little hope is
held out that the team will be in
condition to contend.
Perfect Golf Weather
The day was a perfect one for
golf, with no bad weather to ham-
per playing. It rained somewhat in
the afternoon, but not enough to
disturb the match. The fairways
were in excellent condition leav-
ing nothing but poor playing to
which to attribute the failures.
Captain Bob McMasters did not
play nearly as well as expected,
and even John Schubeck was
shooting below his usual score.

Rains Hinder
Grid Workout
Rains came, winds blew yester-
day, and the football team went
through another intensive scrim-
make.
Despite the weather, a large
turnout was on hand to watch
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's forces
drill for two-and-one-half hours.
Sharp defensive play marked the
workout as the number of big run-
ning gains, in evidence during ear-
lier practices, were limited con-
siderably.
Passing featured the tune-up
for next Saturday's final full-
scale scrimmage. Quarterbacks
Jim Van Pelt -and Jim Maddock
handled most of the signal call-
ing with emphasis placed on a
wide open attack of passing re-
verses and running the ends.
