Dulule's Two-Hitter Beats
Defending Titlist Michigan

Wenley House and Phi Alpha
Kappa were crowned residence
hall and professional fraternity
softball champions, yesterday.
Playing at Wines Field, Wenley,
behind the two-hit, pitching of
Bob Dulude, defeated last year's
champion Michigan House by a
6-4 margin. Except for the first
frame, in which Michigan scored
two runs, Wenley was in almost
complete control of the game.
Early Lead
The winners led off the scoring
in the first inning by pushing
across a tally on a combination of
two hits and an error. In the sec-
ond frame Wenley loaded the bases
via bases on balls, with Doyne
Jackson pounding out a double,
giving the winners their biggest
inning and three runs. Bruce
Clemenz displayed some fancy base
running in the fourth by scoring
from second base on a wild pitch
to add one more run to the Wen-
ley total.
Pitcher Byron Sabin and Bill
Martin drove in two Michigan
markers as they accounted for the
team's total of two singles. The
other runs came by virtue of a
good number of bases on balls
and errors by the Wenley squad.
Wenley hitters, too, had a pret-
ty tough day at the plate, as Sab-
in gave up only three hits, both
coming in the first two innings.
Dulude garnered six strike outs to
Sabin's five, but marred his mound
performance by hitting and pass-
ing a total of twelve would-be
Michigan hitters.
Wenley added yet another insur-
ance run to its total in the fifth
nning when Phil Oles flied out to

left field to score Jackson from
third. Both sides went down in
order in the remaining frame.
Pro-Fraternity Final
In the professional fraternity
competition Phi Alpha Kappa,
pushing across six runs in the
fifth inning on five walks and a
pair of singles, downed Delta Sig-
ma Delta, 13-5. Each side manag-
ed to pound out seven hits apiece,
but the winners made better use
of their opportunities with men
on base. Jim Huizenga, adding in-
sult to injury, blasted a homerun
with two mates aboard. Other hit-
ting honors for the winners went
to Jerry Vander Wall as he hit
twice in his two plate appearances
and Dwight Penning, who also
homered, driving in a tally.
Delta Sigma Delta was not,
however, without fight as Stan
Gilliland, attempting to get his
team back in the scoring column,
also blasted a fourbagger with a
man on.
Other Finals
Residence hall second place final
honors went to Hayden House by
virtue of a 13-1 rout over Van
Tyne. Third place went to Kelsey
by a 5-3 edge over Taylor. Tom
Smith wrapped up the game for
Kelsey with a final inning home-
run with one aboard.
Action in the fourth place final
was between Williams and Adams
Houses, with the former coming
out on top, 8 6. Most of the action
occurred in tl\e first frame, as Wil-
liams batters knocked out five hits,
combined with a single miscue,
racked up a total of six runs. Al-
len-Rumsey took the fifth place
title by nosing out the Strauss
squad, 9-8.

'Fisher Day'.

About 100 former Michigan
baseball players will gather in Ann
Arbor on June 10 to honor Coach
Ray Fisher after 35 years of guid-
ing the diamond fortunes of the
The "Ray Fisher Day" celebra-
tion will include a luncheon for
the returning players, old-timers
games in the afternoon, and a
banquet honoring Fisher in the
Fisher, a former major league
player with the New York High-
landers and the Cincinnati Reds,
has led the Wolverines to 15 West-
ern Conference championships and
one NCAA title. Nine of his Big
Ten titles have come since 1941
and the NCAA championship was
copped by Michigan in 1953.
Many highly rated major league
players have come off the Wol-
verine diamond after Fisher's tu-
telage. Among his most noted are
Dick Wakefield, the first major
league "bonus baby," Don Lund,
Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch, and

Fisher Explains Cause
Of 'M' Baseball Slump

It's all over now but the wonder-
Why did Michigan's baseball
team, after jumping off to such a 1
fast start, drop like a ton of bricks1
into fifth place the last two weeks r
of the season?
Why did Michigan lose games
like the doubleheaders at Michi-
gan State and Ohio State when1
Coach Ray Fisher felt they were
going to win?1
Why did Fisher pitch Marv Wis-
niewski against Indiana, seem-1
ingly wasting the latter's precious
talents in an 18-4 victory, when he
may have been much more val-
uable against the now champion;
Pitching Lapse
Fisher sums up the answers to
the first two questions in a single
exclamation; "My pitching just'
folded on me!"
"I had expected to have a real
good ball club at the beginning of
the season," he said. "I knew we
were going to be near the top on
defense. We had good hitting pros-
pects, and I was sure we were go-
ing to develop some strong pitch-
ing, but other than Wisniewski, i
worked out there was no one I
could really depend on out there
on the mound."
He didn't pick out any pitcher
in general; he just said they all
"folded on him." Their wildness
was what he commented on most.
Both at Lansing and down at
Columbus, the Wolverine pitchers
gave up more walks than Fisher
wished to count-16 in two games

with OSU, 18 in the two with MSC.
"You can't win ball games that
way" sighed Fisher.
As to why Fisher let his ace
left-hander go all the way in the
Indiana rout, not saving him for
any of the doubleheader work, is
a long, but plausible story.
"There really wasn't too much
difference between Ohio State and
Indiana if you'll check the rec-
ord," said Fisher, "and since we
had to win every game, I started
Wisniewski at Indiana, figuring on
taking him out if we built up a
strong lead quickly."
"Well, we were five runs ahead
in the fifth inning, but Marv had
a no-hitter going and I didn't
want to- take him out of it. Also
at this point Indiana's coach saw
that he didn't have much of a
chance to win anyway, so he
stuck in the tail end of his pitch-
ing staff. That's where we got all
the runs," said Fisher.
"Anyway, until the seventh inn-
ing Mary still had his no-hitter.
and when they finally got a hit
off him, it was too late to take
him out so that it would do him
much good, so he stayed in there
all the way." And there you are.
Eaddy Hurt
Besides the pitching situation,
Fisher cited another incident
which he felt to have been a blow
to his team-the sock on the head
that Don Eaddy received in the
Purdue game three weeks ago.
"Eaddy didn't hit up to par after
this," said Fisher and I am sure
that blow he received was the
cause of it.

Indiana and Michigan State
[ could make the going tougher
than anticipated for Michigan in
the Big Ten Championship track
meet this weekend at Columbus.
Coach Gordon Fisher's Hoosiers
probably won't be quite as strong
as they were last year, since they
lost 12 lettermen by graduation,
including their great middle-dis-
tance man, Lowell Zellers. How-
ever, they still boast of some of
the power which enabled them to
finish second in last year's Big
Ten indoor championships and
fourth in the outdoor meet.
Top-Flight Relay
Topping Indiana's list of 'hope-
fuls is its mile relay team, which
boasts of the second best time of
the Big Ten outdoor season-be-
hind Michigan's - of 3:14.3. This
formidable four, composed of Mike
Cusick, Jim Ely, Don Ward and
Lennie Robinson, beat Michigan's
entry in both Big Ten meets last
year and in this season's indoor.
Robinson, the team's lightning-
like anchor man, has been injured
recently, but is expected to recu-
perate in time for the weekend's

has been strengthened for the out-

basketball star Julius McCoy. Mc-
Coy has turned in the best Big
Ten clocking of the outdoor sea-
son in the 220, a respectable 21.2.

Still the final and most import-
ant test is yet to be-the Big Ten
Championship Meet at Evanston,
Illinois, this Thursday, Friday and
Team Reaches Peak
The latest and brightest chap-
ter to date in the Michigan ten-
nis story for 1955 was written into
the records last weekend when the
Wolverines journeyed to the courts
of Indiana and Illinois to register
impressive victories over those two
f dangerous rivals.
The 6-3 triumph over the Hoos-
iers, was especially significant as
it indicated that even the highly-
rated defending Big Ten champs
are vulnerable to the tremendous
depth and vitality of the Wolver-
ine squad.
Barry MacKay, who will be the
favorite to capture the Conference
singles crown at Evanston, showed
that even with an off day he can
defeat the best.
Hironimus Extends MacKay
John Hironimus winner of five
Big Ten titles in three previous
years at Indiana, took advantage
of MacKay's erratic tendency to
stroke the ball too hard to extend
the usually brilliant Wolverine to
three sets, but McKay still came
through in the clutch to win, 10-8,
3-6, 6-4.
With MacKay back in form the
next day against Conrad Woods
of Illinois, the rest of the Confer-
ence's hopes of stopping the un-
beaten netter in the championship
tournament took a nosedive.
Woods, last year's runnerup in Big
Ten singles, was dropped in
straight sets, 6-4, 6-1, as Michigan
shut out the Illini, 9-0.
The second singles position was
particularly heartening to Coach
Bill Murphy over the weekend. Its
holder, Mark Jaffe, who had been
hampered for weeks by a sore leg,
played two of the best matches of
his career in drubbing Hoosier
Jerry Parchute, 6-1, 6-0, and Roger
Bielefeld of Illinois; 9-7, 6-3.
Mann, Paulus Undefeated
Seniors Al Mann and Pete Paul-
us finished the season undefeated
in singles competition while Dick
Potter and Bob Paley each re-

bounded from tough losses at In-
diana to blast their Illini oppon-
ents in such convincing fashion
that their Hoosier performances
seemed only like bad dreams. j
Although MacKay and Potter
failed to impress as they split both
of their number one doubles
matches last weekend, the show-

ing of the other two Wolverine
doubles teams promised good
things at Evanston.
Captain Bob Nederlander and
Mann, conference titleholders in
the second doubles position, dis-
played excellent comeback ability
in sweeping both their encounters
after trailing in each.

Michigan team in any sport ever
to travel extensively outside the
United States. He took his squad
to Japan, where they proceeded to

In the old-timers game, at Fer-
ry Field, fans in the Ann Arbor
area will get a chance to see some
of the former players, including
Fred DeNeffe, a pitcher from Port-
land, Oregon, who graduated in
1894, and John Condon, who
starred on Wolverines squads be-
fore his graduation in 1895.,

scholarships for Michigan students

nounced at the banquet.

headed by Herman Fishman, one
of Michigan's finest lefthanded
pitchers, and included Lund,
Charlie Ketterer, William Giles
and Ted Chapman. George Mas-
kin, Detroit sportswriter, is in
charge of publicity.

NEW YORK (MP)-Ted Kluszew-
ski, the famed "Mr. Muscles" of
the Cincinnati Redlegs, finally has
started belaboring N a t i o n a 1
League pitchers with home runs
and base hits in the manner to
which they're accustomed.
Kluszewski, a former football
star at Indiana University slam-
med three homers last week to
deadlock Duke Snider of Brook-
lyn for the lead at 11. He also col-
lected nine other hits in 23 at
bats and pushed his batting aver-
age to .321.
Mueller Leads
Big Klu has a long way to go to
catch New York's Don Mueller,
who still is setting a torrid- pace
in the batting competition with a
.397 mark.
Bill Virdon, the Cards' rookie
outfielder, moved into second place
at .368. Philadelphia's Richie Ash-
burn, who has hit safely in his
last seven games, is third with
.365. Then come Red Schoendienst
of St. Louis with .352 and Roy
Campanella of Brooklyn with .349.
In the American League, Vic
Power of Kansas City dropped six

points to .389, but he still holds a
commanding lead over Harvey
Kuenn and Al Kaline of Detroit.
Kuenn slumped 15 points to .373
with only six hits in 21 at bats
while Kaline tailed off 21 points
to .358 with five in 21 trips.
