With Best in Conference

By BOB BOLTON

With its first northern victory
securely stored away, coach Ray
Fisher's baseball squad will j urney
to Detroit this afternoon to meet
Wayne University.
The contest 4ll be the season
opener for the Tartars.
Pitching Bothers Coach,
Still worried about his mound
corps, Fisher plans to give several
men a chance to show their wares.
Five pitchers are making the trip-
Don Poloskey, Dean Finkbeiner,
Jim Clark, Boyd Schertzer and
Ed Westwood.
The Tartars, who just recently
have started outdoor practice, are
as yet untested, but first baseman
Ed Williams, who smacked the ball
for a .383 average last year; and
outfielder Don Halverson, who bat-
ted .321, will be back to strengthen
the team. A promising soph is
catcher Ray Herndon.,
In 11 previous meetings between
the two teams; the Wolverines
have come away with 10 victories.
Their lone defeat came in 1949.
Fisher was pleased with the dut-
come of Tuesday's game against
Central Michigan, 8-5, but felt
that the pitching was still not up
to par.

innings in his first start since a

cast was removed from his broken
wrist. He will probably see quite
a bit of action in the next few
warm-uy games.
Mark Ferrelli also looked good as
he gave up only one run and two
hits in his four inning stint. He
also chalked up four strikeouts
along the way.
At third base, sophomore Steve
Boros appears to have the situa-
tion pretty well in hand, as he is
now hitting the ball at a .452 clip,
including two hits against Central
Michigan.
The team finished up yesterday
with a heavy workout and will
leave for Detroit this afternoon at
1:00.

B riggs Wants To 'Justify'
Proposed .Sale of Bengals

DETROIT '(1P - The Detroit'
Tigers, the lucrative baseball club
currently carrying a price tag esti-
mated at six million dollars, may
not be sold after all, President
Walter O. "Spike" Briggs, Jr., said
yesterday.
"We're not going to sell to just
anybody with a lot of money," said
Briggs. "We want to justify our
sale to the people of Detroit."
Since the proposed sale was an-
nounced, a dozen prospective buy-
ers have been pounding on Briggs'
door.
The latest offer was made by the
Detroit Lions Football Co., which

said yesterday it would like to buy
the American League club fran-
chise and Briggs Stadium; sell
shares in the franchise to fans
and. peddle the stadium to the City
of Detroit.
Sources close to the Tigers fig-
ure since the Cleveland Indian
franchise alone sold for $3,900,000
the Detroit team and ballpark
ought to be worth six million.
Detroit fans-over a million of
them-poured into Briggs Stadium
last year as the young team pro-
vided considerable color despite its
fifth place ending. It also is fig-
ured for fith again this year.

Giving heavy hitting support to
the blazing one-hit pitching of Cal
Atwood, Sigma Phi Epsilon pound-
ed Sigma Chi, 13-1, yesterday as
social fraternity softball entered
its second day,
Warm weather kept pitching
arms limber and the eight winning
hurlers gave up a meager total of
35 hits.
Scratch Hit Spoils Bid
Larry Lavercombe and Dutch
Allen both delivered three-run
homers for Sigma Phi Epsilon and
pitcher Atwood aided his own win-
ning cause with a two-run triple:
Ron Kramer saved Sigma Chi from
being blanked in the hit depart-
ment with a scratch single.
In the highest scoring game of
the day, Tau Delta Phi edged
Alpha Delta Phi 14-11. Pitcher
Hanley Gurwin almost single-
handedly woi for the Tau Delts
as he drove in seven runs with a
grand slam and a three-run homer.
Kappa Sigma came up with 13
runs on four hits in a wild fourth
inning to down Theta Xi, 16-1. Del
Wright pitched brilliantly for the
winners, giving up but two singles.
'The Delta Sigs collected one
more hit than Sigma Alpha Mu,
I-M Prepares
First Practice
Ini Lacrosse
At four p.m. today, the first
practice session for lacrosse players
will get underway at Ferry Field.
It is the purpose of the I-M De-
partment to form: a league cc -
posed of four teams under the
direction of Dutch Allen. The cli-
max of the season will be an exhi-
bition contest to be held May 12.
All students that are interested
in playing lacrosse should meet at
the I-M building today at four.
Earl Riskey, director of I-M activi-
ties, advises that experience is not
necessary.

but it did them no good as they
bowed to last year's runner-ups
9-5. The Sammies' fire-balling
Fred Gordon was tagged for eight
safeties.
Casey Fashions Two-Hitter
Phi Sigma Kappa defeated Al-
pha Sigma Phi 16-7 in the most
loosely played contest of the day.
Phi Sigma Kappa pushed over its
16 tallies on nine hits while Alpha
Sigma Phi could only get two off
winning hurler Chuck Casey.
In other contests Pi Lambda Phi
downed Phi Kappa Sigma, 13-6;
Phi Sigma Delta beat Sigma' Nu,
9-5, behind the five-hit pitching
of Larry Weiss; and Phi Gamma
Delta crushed Chi Phi 12-4 on
Gene Honeyman's four hitter.

Tigers Battle Milwaukee
To Scoreless Deadlock

Relative strengths of the Big
Ten golf teams this spring indicate
a potentially well-balanced Con-
ference.
It appears that some of the
previously in-between squads may
be right near the top and in title
contention. On paper, defending-
champion Purdue and Ohio State
must again be ranked as the lead-
ers, but both Michigan and Wis-
consin have veteran teams re-'
turning.
Three Badgers Return
Wisconsin, for example has been
tagged with "the brightest pros-
pects in years" with its three top
lettermen back. The Badgers fin-
ished third last year behind Pur-
due and Ohio State, while Michi-
gan was a solid fourth.,
Wolverine Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer doesn't hesitate to mention
that some of the other schools,
such as Iowa and Minnesota, could
be stronger and might be breath-
ing down the necks of the pace-
setters at the Conference cham-
pionships in late May. \
Veterans Balance Wolverines
Katzenmeyer is plagued this
season by a remarkably balanced
team-so even-balanced that he
could almost flip a coin to see who
should be shooting where in the six
match positions.,
On any one day, senior Captain
Bob McMasters and juniors John

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - The
Detroit Tigers and Milwaukee
Braves played 14.scoreless innings
yesterday without either ,team
getting a runner past second base
and then gave up.
The game was called by agree-
ment between Managers Charlie
Grimm and Bucky Harris.
It was a pitchers' battle from the
start with the Braves getting only
six hits off Virgil Trucks, Dick
Marlowe and Pete Wojey and the
Tigers collecting 10 off Lew Bur-
dette, Red Murff and Humberto
Robinson. All the hits were singles.

Harvey Cleared
DETROIT - The prosecutor's
office ruled yesterday there was
insufficient evidence to justify an
assault warrant against Doug Har-
vey, Montreal Canadiens hockey
player, accused of hitting a spec-
tator at a game here last Thurs-
day.
Steve Kemeny, 37, of Wyandotte,
Mich., complained that Harvey hit

Schubeck, Steve Uzelac, Hank
Loeb, Skip MacMichael or Fred
Micklow can be low man. Katzen-
meyer will spend most of the
spring shifting his players around
to find the best combinations.
Face Michigan State
Some indications of just how
good the Wolverines may be comes
a week from Saturday, when
Michigan will host MichiganState.
Both squads will use eight men
with Stan Kwasiborski and Dave
Wakely probably also seeing action

(First of two articles previewing
Michigan's 1956 outdoor track and
field season. This article covers the
track prospects.)
By JOHN HILLYER
Unless some startling develop-
ments occur, it looks like Michigan
will successfully defend Its Big Ten
Outdoor Track and Field. Cham-
pionships on May 25-26 at Min-
neapolis. ,
List spring saw the Wolverines
come within a fraction of a point
of doubling runner-up Illinois'
score in the Conference meet at
Columbus and, although it prob-
ably won't be as one-sided this
year, the Blue still look good, at
least on paper.
Other Meets. Slated
But not all of the strong compe-
tition will be encountered' in the
Minneapolis test. There are several
interesting' dual and invitational
meets scheduled, including Ann
Arbor appearances for Indiana,
Marquette and the Chicago Track
Club and a trip up to Lansing for
a duel with the Spartans.
The relays should prove one of
Michigan's, stronger points, as
usual, especially after. last week-
end's amazing' wading exhibition
in the mud at Quantico, Va. The
relay corps can be picked from an
extensive list of competent ath-
letes, including Bob Rudesill, Laird
Sloan, Dick Flodin, Pete Gray,
George Gluppe, Bob. Brown, Robin
j Varian and Dkon Matheson.
Wallingford, Keilstrup in Mile
In the mile, Captain Ron Wall-
ingford and soph Gert Keilstrup
should both improve, with Wall-
SPORTS

ingford an almost sure thing in
the two-mile.
Brown, who last year took
fourth in both the 100 and 220,
returns in the sprints, and joins
Flodin, second to Jim Golliday in
toe 220, and Jimmy Pace, who will
report for spring football drills,
remains a question mark.
The Wolverines look exception-
ally strong in the 440. Sloan and
Rudesill have both done :48.6
while Flodin was once clocked in
:47.7. Matheson's best time is :50
flat, but this should be lowered.
Half-Mile Promising
The half looks good, too, with,
Gray back to defend his .Confer-
ence crown and Keilstrup and Var-
Ian giving depth to the event.
The only weak spot appears to
