Baseball Team eets Irish

Today at South Bend

Northwestern, Wisconsin
'M's Foes Over Weekend

Lambda Chi Wins Softball
Tilt To Advance in Playoffs

\1

By LYNN TOWLE
The baseball action this week-
end may tell the story.
Michigan's baseball team, which
has a 0-1 Big Ten record, could
get back into the race with vic-
tories over Northwestern and
Wisconsin.
All of this weekend's action will
beplayed out of town. The Wol-
verines left this morning at 9 a.m.
for South Bend, Ind., where they
will play Notre Dame this after-
noon in a non-conference tilt.
Will Use Extra Pitchers
Coach Ray Fisher plans to use
many of his extra pitchers against
the Irish including center fielder
Bruce Fox, his new pitching find.
Possibly' another outfielder, Howie
Tommelein will see mound action.
Tommelein has never pitched
in a game befole, but Fisher thinks
that with his fine arm, he should
be given a try.
Fox turned in a one-hit per-
formance when he pitched a com-
plete game against Wayne, 2-1,
two weeks ago. It was the out-
fielder's first try at hurling.
With either Fox or Tommelein
on the pitcher's mound, Fisher,
will very likely use either pitcher
Bill Thurston or infielder Frank
Ronan in the oitfield.
Other pitchers who may have a
chance to see action against the
Irish are Dick Peterjohn, Dean
Finkbeiner, and Mark Ferrelli.
Northwestern Next
After today's game, they Maize
and Blue will go on to Northwest-
ern where they will confront the
Wildcats ini a single contest to-
morrow afternoon. Righthander
Don Poloskey will oppose Jay Hook
on the mound.
Poloskey pitched eight full in-
nings in the Wolverine's initial
Conference contest with Indiana
and looked very adept until the
Hoosiers got to him for a three
run burst in the eighth. His con-
trol and curve were working for
him perfectly..
Northwestern has a 1-2 Confer-
ence mark. Last Friday it edged
Iowa, 2-1, as sophomore ace Hook
struck out 10 Howkeye batters.
The Wildcats last both ends of a

double-header to *Minnesota on
Saturday, 7-0 and 3-1.
Fisher's squad will wind up the
weekend's action at Madison, Wis.,
with a twin bill against Wisconsin.
Thurston and Glenn Girardin will
probably receive the starting nod
for the games.
The Badgers will try to stay on
the winning trail after a successful
weekend. They now hold second
place in the Big Ten standings
with a 2-0 record. On Friday they
downed Minnesota, 6-4, and they
shut out Iowa, 2-0, Saturday aft-
ernoon. The sec'ond game of that
twin bill was rained out.
Wisconsin has several return-
ing lettermen in key positions, but
it has to rely almost entirely on
new players in the catching de-
partment. Centerfielder Bill Rubin
appears to be the leading slugger
as he hit a sizzling .380 average
in all of Wisconsin's contests last
year.
Rifle Team
Wins Match
As the competitors scrambled
to avoid a passing tornado, the
Michigan rifle team won history's
first intercollegiate 30 caliber rifle
match last weekend at Camp Per-
ry, Ohio'.
The Wolverines chalked up a to-
tal score of 612 in the two day
meet to pace a field 'of seven
teams. Time was called during
Sunday's competition as a tornado
passed within five iles of the
meet.
Jan Gogulski and Richard Roe-.
mer of the Michigan contingent
walked off with individual scoring
honors as Gogulski shot 134, and
Roemer finished with a score of
130.
Closely trailing the tw2 Wolver-
ines in individual scoring were
James Restanes and Gerald Cash
of Dayton, with scores of 127 and
124 respectively.

Linksters Fifth Victory
Reveals Squad's Balanve

By DON McGHEEI
Lambda Chi Alpha pitcher Dick
Heusel hurled a brilliant no-hitter
yesterday to lead his team to a
6-0 softball victory over Phi Sigma
Delta in an important I-M first
place playoff game.
The win gave Heusel his second
no-hitter in as many games. Heu-
sel's fast ball and almost perfect
control amazed batter after batter
and in the six innings played he
chalked up 11 strikeouts. The
pitching was strongly supported by
fine field play.
Two Hits - Six Ruins
Although Phi Sig pitcher War-
ren Singer allowed pnly two hits, a
number of walks andfielding er-
rors combined stretched Lambda
Chi's two safe bunts into six runs,
five of them coming in the fourth
inning.
In a second place playoff game
Sigma Nu completely outclassed
Phi Sigma Kappa, 10-4, the game
featuring excellent pitching and
hitting.
After retiring the Phi Sigma

Kappas one-two-three, in the top
of the first, Sigma Nu jumped to
a 5-0 lead, all nine men batting
and collecting five hits. The first
inning streak was lead by a two-
run homer by Carl York and a
double off the bat of John Kreu-
zer.
Three Homers
Bob Monroe, of Sigma Nu, hit a
four bagger in the second and York
hit his second homer of the day, a
screaming slam into center, in the
bottom of the third.
Duane Schultz, Sigma Nu pitcher
struck out 11 men, and allowed
only three hits'as compared to 11
for the Sigma Nu nine. Schultz ex-
hibited excellent control through-
out the game except for a brief let-
up in the first of the fifth.
In other games, Sigma Phi Epsi.
lon lost to Phi Gamma Delta, 9-8,
even though they were ahead, 5-1,
in the second inning. Phi Kappa
Sigma topped Phi Epsilon Pi, 10-9,
and Evans Scholars trimmed Owen
Coop, 9-6.

Tennis Postponed
Yesterdays tennis match be-
tween Michigan and Western
Michigan was cancelled because
of wet courts. The match will
be played here next Wednesday,
May. 9.

Oosterbaan
Bars Fans
From Drills
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan bar-
red visitors from yesterday's work-
outs as he sent his football play-
ers through a stiff 45 minute
scrimmage.
Following the drills, he had no
comment to make, other than to
say that single wing plays were
stressed/ The Wolverines will de-
viate from . their usual weekly
routine this week by holding a
practice session on Friday after-
noon, making up for the one they
missed last Saturday due to in-
clement weather.
Under Big Ten rules, each team
is allowed 20 workouts over a per-
iod of four weeks.

By JOE GREENOUGH
A little optimism seems to be in
order in view of the golf team's
strong showing yesterday against
the University of Detroit.
Once again the most notable as-
pect was the fine over-all balance
which the squad demonstrated
in taking their fifth consecutive
dual meet victory.
It must be remembered, how-
ever, that the primary purpose of
dual meets is to prepare the team
for the Big Ten Meet late this
month. Winning or losing is in a
sense of secondary importance.
Katzenmeyer Satisfied
In commenting on Tuesday's tri-
umph Coach Bert Katzenmeyer
remarked that he was satisfied
with his team's performance but
he sounded a warning against
overconfidence when he pointed
out that Detroit had only three
topflight golfers and therefore
was not a real test of Michigan's
strength.
The team faces a much stiffer
test this Saturday when they op-
pose Ohio State and Purdue in a
triangular meet at Lafayette, Ind.
Both of these teams are consider-
ed threats for' the Conference
crown.

An outstanding performance
against Detroit was turned in by
Fred Micklow, who fired a spectac-
ular par 72 round. This was the
lowest score turned by in a Michi-
gan golfer at home since Bob
McMasters shot a 71 last year.
Micklow "Hot"
In addition Micklow recorded a
71 last week at Columbus, Ohio.
These two performances mark him
as the squad's hottest player at
present.
Sophomore Stan Kwasiborski
has also been playing consistantly
fine golf, especially since the\
southern trip.
In discussing his team's chances
to annex the Big Ten-crown, Kat-
zenmeyer said that scores as a
whole will have to improve if they
are to have a chance to win.

A 'Plea....
LOS ANGELES (IP)-Sports Edi-
tor Paul Zimmerman of the Los
Angeles Times yesterday urged the
National Collegiate Athletic Assn.
to "quickly and effectively retali
ate" against Dan Ferris and the
Amateur Athletic Union for de-
claring the entire William and
"Mary track team ineligible be-
cause two of its members ran
against Wes Santee of 'the Quan-
tico Marines.
"All the NCAA has to do in
backing its member school is to
rule against the, collegians ever
competing in AAU - sanctioned
meets while they are undergradu-
ates," Zimmerman wrote in his
column, "Sportscripts." He said
the armed services should do like-
wise.
"There are not enough former
collegians outside the Army, Navy
and Marine Corps to make it pos-
sible for the AAU to stake their
big-money winter indoor events
and the outdoor championships,"
the column said.
The Answer...
NEW ORLEANS (M)-The Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Assn's
council Wednesday placed Auburn
on probation for three ye rs and
warned the school that anf infrac-
tions during the period may lead
to expulsion from the NCAA.
Auburn's probation period was
the longest ever handed down" by
the NCAA. One other Southeast-
ern'Conference school, the Univer-
sty of Florida, and the Univer-
sity of Louisville also were placed
on probation. Their probations
are for two years.
The NCAA's action on Auburn
supported rulings earlier this year
by the Southeastern Conference.

Shorts

The council said it found that
a staff member of the university,
assistant Football Coach Hal Her-
ring, during Nov. 1955 offered i-
f-nancial aid to two prospective
student-athletes in excess of that
permitted by the NCAA and the
Southeastern Conference.
Moore Number One ..
NEW YORK (MP)-Archie Moore,
the light heavyweight champion,
is listed as the No. 1 heavyweight
in the world, now that Rocky Mar-
ciano has retired, in the latest
monthly ratings by Ring Maga-
zine.
