Greets Men
In First Drill
By DALE CANTOR
Yesterday afternoon was loaded
with excitement!
In site of the wicked winds which
whipped around Ferry Field and
the combination of rain and snow
falling, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
and Captain Tom Maentz wel-
comed approximately 110 grid can-
didates to the first spring practice
session.
Anxious freshman and veterpn
gridders found a heavy schedule of
drills awaiting: them when they
reported at 3 p.m. Tackling,
blocking, ball-handling and pass
receiving drill8, all rated first-day
attention.
Kramer at Wingback
All eyes were focused On Ron
Kramer, who started work at the
wingback post vacated by Tony
Branoff. Although it is too early
to tell, Kramer appeared to be
perfectly at ease in his new role
and was very impressive as he
went through several drills with
a group of backfield men.
The photographers were busy,
too. Mike Rotunno, Jim Maddock,
and Jim Pace and the rest of the
21 returning lettermen present
took time out to pose.
Fyeshman hopefuls, John Herrn-
stein, who is slated as a top candi-
date for the fullback post, Gerald
Marciniak, a 225 pound tackle, and
Bob Ptacek, a highly-praised quar-
terback, demonstrated their talents
for the photographers.

don Morrow, Steve Zerzas, Jim

Dresser, Toledo Devilbiss High
School's much sought after
halfback, announced over the
weekend that he has enrolled
for the fall term at Michigan.
The 18 year old athlete led
Ohio's scholastic scorers with

ber-like weather.

Missing from the list of return
ing lettermen were Al Sigman,

who are on the baseball squad, and
Dave Owen, on the track team.
The 19 remaining practice ses-
sions will tend to sort the men1
from the boys.
One freshman candidate sum-
med up the attitude of most of the
gridders, saying "Only the best of
us will get to play in the Michigan
Stadium, and spring practice is
where they find the best."

Lloyd Tops
Cooley9=0,,
In Softball
Bob Anderson, who pitched a
one-hitter last week, turned in a
no-hitter yesterday to lead Lloyd
House to a decisive 9-0 victory,
over Cooley House.
In4the "ifth inning, after Ander-
son had struck out six consecutive
men, he injured his arm: and had
to be replaced by Gary Wilcox who
retired the side and preserved the
Ino-hitter. Anderson helped his
own cause by hitting a home run
in the last inning.
Taylor House, outhitting Wenley
House in a slugfest. won by a 10-7
score. Don Moery, pitching for
Wenley House had a fit of wildness
in the second inning as he walked
eight men and Taylor House ral-
lied for six runs.
Taylor House sewed up the game
in the third inning as they came
up with four more runs.
Williams House came up with
four runs in the first inning to
defeat Michigan House by a score
of 6-1. The inning was sparked
by a triple by Frank Verbeck, and
a double by Carl Pingel.
In other games, Strauss defeated
Chicago House by a score of 7-5;
Reeves defeated Scott House 9-6;
Winchell House romped over Hins-
dale 13-8; Williams won a close
victory over Michigan House 6-5;
Van Tyne defeated Huber 11-5;
and Hayden overpowered Anderson

PITCHER CLARK INJURED:
'NI' Nine Faces Broncos in Homne Contest

By LYNNE TOWLE
Michigan's baseball team will
get its first taste of Big Ten calibre
pitching today against Western
Michigan at Ferry Field. .
Both today's game and tomor-
row's home game with Notre Dame
will begin at 3:30 p.m.
Wolverine hitters will have a
chance today to test themselves
against the Broncos' ace sopho-
more left-hander, Norm Hradek.
The southpaw shut out last sea-
son's Pig Ten champion, Ohio
State, last weekend.
Clark Injured.
Coach Ray Fisher's Wolverine
hurling staff was dealt a severe
blow yesterday when it was dis-
closed that righthander Jim Clark
had suffered an injury to his right
shoulder.
The length of Clark's absence
from the team will not be known
until after the shoulder is X-rayed
this week. The injury was incurred
Sunday by Clark.
Fisher had rated Clark with
turning ih the finest pitching per-
formance in Saturday's game
against the University of Detroit.
In Michigan's 8-1 triumph, Clark

set down six men in order during his control was very bad," com-
his brief two-inning stint on the mented Fisher.

mound.
Thurston Starts
Today Bill Thurston has been
nominated to start against West-
ern Michigan. Fisher hopes he
can go the distance without weak-
ening. Don Poloskey will face Notre
Dame tomorrow.
In discussing last Saturday's
contest, Fisher remarked, "The
team's hitting was beginning to.
look better in the latter part of
the game-more like it should
look."
Steve Boros was the big gun in
the batting department while go-
ing three for four. Al Sigman who
had two hits and Bruce Fox with
a sharp single also hit well. Fisher
indicated that Fox has shown
much improvement over his per-
formances last year.
Pitcher Glenn Girardin turned
in a fine performance against D.-
troit. He pitched hitless and score-
less ball in the initial three innings.
Southpaw Mark Ferrelli gave up
only one hit, but he was in trouble
all the time. "He was very lucky
to get off as well as he did, because
WI

Defense Improving
'Fisher believes that the defense
is coming along well. His mair
problem is still the pitching-"the
answer to a ball club."
The coach considered Detroit a
little weak, but predicted that the
Titans would improve as the sea-
son wears on. "Their pitching was
better than their hitting, but
neither compared with the Big
Ten. There were obvious weak
spots in their defense, but we
didn't take much advantage of
them".

By The Associated Press

Can Brooklyn do it again? !
Do the New York Yankees out-
class the American League?

White Sox-Indians trade really
help both clubs?
The answers start coming in

tering of rookies edging into the
lineups alongside such big names
as Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Yogi
Berra and Robin Roberts.
President Eisenhower will toss
out the first ball at Washington

cheeked roolies will dare the
mighty Yankees.
At Washington's Griffith Stadi-
um, Camilo Pascual, 2-12 last
year, is the National's starting
pitcher. Don Larsen (9-2) is man-

ager Casey Stengel's starting
choice.
Chicago fans will get the low-
down on the big deal with Cleve-
land on opening day. Chico Car-'
rasquel and Jim Busby formerly'
of the White Sox, will be playing
for the Indians and Larry Doby,
ex-Indian, will be in center with
rookie Luis Aparicio at short for
the Sox when Bob Lemon (18-10)
faces Billy Pierce (15-10).
Lary Starts for Tigers
At Detroit it probably will be
Alex Kellner (11-8), starting for
the Kansas City A's - against
Frank Lary (14-5).
The Red Sox will throw Frank
Sullivan (18-3) at Baltimore's Bill
Wight (6-8).
Brooklyn's world champs will
be at home for the first half of a
twin opening-Tuesday in Brook-
lyn and Thursday in Jersey City.

Ebbets Fgld against the Phillies'
Robin Roberts (23-14).

When Pittsburgh's Bob Friend
(14-9) faces New York's Johnny
Antonelli (14-16) at the Polo
Grounds, two of the three new
managers will make their debuts-
Bobby Bragan of the Pirates and
