WOMAN ON RIFLE TEAM:
Miss Grubbins Seventh in Conference

Pittsburgh's Long Shatters Record
with Seventh Homer in Seven Days

By ED BERNREUTER
A woman competing in inter-
collegiate athletics for Michigan?
This question may sound absurd
to one who does not follow the
Wolverine rifle shooting team, but
to those who do, the name of Rob-
erta Gubbins is a familiar one.
Ranks Third on Team
This year, as in the one pervious,
Miss Gubbins, who is from Birm-
ingham, Mich., ranked number
three on the Wolverine roster, as
it gained first playCsheplce
honors. Individually she placed
seventh among all competitors.
At their meeting, held after this
year's championship matches, the
rifle coach passed a rule prohibit-
ing women from Conference shoot-
ing.
This ruling was aimed directly
at Miss Gubbins, who is presently
a junior and under normal cir-
cumstances would have been com-
peting next season. She is also the
only woman on a Big' Ten rifle
squad.
"Women Are Valuable"
"It's a shame women can't com-
pete," commented the pretty bru-
nette, "because I know of several
women coming to Michigan who
could prove valuable to the team."
Winning seems quite natural to
Miss Gubbins, who has collected
over one hundred medals and
about 15 trophies at ifIe matches
in several states. Along with these
awards have come many interna-
tional, national, and _state titles
which she holds personally or as
a team member.
The suspension does not prohibit
her from shoots other than the
Big Ten.

-Daily-Peter Song
ROBERTA GUBBINS
. . Wolverine marksman from the female ranks

This career, which placed her
15th among all shooters in the
nationals held at Camp Perry, be-
gan officially in 1948 when she
placed third in the novice class
of the Hearst-Times shoot.
"I got my start at rifle shooting
when I was 10 years old and want-
ed a BB gun for Christmas," she
smiled. "My father thought BB
guns were too dangerous, so he
bought me a Winchester rifle in-
stead."
She attributes much of her suc-
cess to her father who was her
first? teacher and has coached her
continually.

long hours of practice are still
necessary.
She points out that, "Once the
fundamentals are learned you con-

In spite of her numerous suc-

Commenting on her single hunt-

didn't even have time to shoot."
Heavyweight
Championship
Bouts Planned
B OS T O N ()-The executive
committee of the National Boxing
Association today approved an
elimination series for the heavy-
weight title starting with the Hur-
ricane Jackson-Floyd Patterson
bout next month.
The committee voted -_that the
NBA would recognize as champion
the winner of the three-bout series.
Under the committee's series,
the winner of the Jackson-Pat-
terson bout June 8 would meet
Light Heavyweight Champion Ar-
chie Moore, stopped by Rocky
Marciano in the latter's last bout
before retiring as heavy king.
The winner of that second bout
then would meet the fighter listed
as number one contender by the
NBA for the title within 90 days.
It was not decided what would
happen if Jackson, Patterson or
Moore happens to become the
no. 1 contender.
The executive committee said
that the next NBA ratings would
be issued June 1. The committee
voted that hereafter ratings will
be issued monthly, instead of
quarterly, and contenders will be
ranked by number. In the past,
the NBA has listed a champion,
then followed with logical con-
tenders and outstanding boxers.

By The Associated Press
Thirty - year - old Dale Long,
whom the Pittsburgh Pirates gave
up on twice, established a major
league record yesterday of seven
home runs in seven consecutive
games as he led Pittsburgh to a
6-2 victory over the Philadelphia
Phillies at Connie Mack Stadium.
Long latched on to a record that
through the years has eluded all
of baseball's great sluggers when
he hit the first pitch served up by
reliefer Ben Flowers in the eighth
inning over the high right field
wall. It was the big first baseman's
thirteenth homer of the season,
tops in the National League.
Leads League
The slugging Pirate, who leads
the league in batting and runs-
batted-in as well as home runs,
began his sensational streak last
Saturday. Manager Bobby Bragan
cooperated in Long's bid for the
record book by moving him up to
third in the batting order so as
to give him every possible chance
to hit one out of the park. Long
had been hitting in the cleanup
spot.
Pittsburgh officials scurried out-
side the park immediately after
Long's blast cleared the barrier
and rounded up the youngster who
recovered the prize souvenir. He
returned it and was given another
in its place. A Pittsburgh spokes-
man said the ball would be sent
to the Hall of Fame at Coopers-
town, N.Y.
Long equalled the major league
mark of *six home runs in six con-
secutive games Friday night with
his twelveth of the season, also
against the Phillies. The six-for-
six mark was set by Ken Williams
of the St. Louis Browns in 1922.
Three National Leaguers, in ad-
dition to Long, tied it-George
Kelly (1924), Walker Cooper
(1947) and Willie Mays (1955),
all of the New York Giants. Lou
Gehrig of the New York Yankees
is the only other American Leag-
uer to do it.
Hank Foiles and Frank Thomas

ers for 92%3 innings, edged the
Redlegs, 2-1 on Frank Torre's 11th
inning single which broke up an
odd pitching contest.
Roger Craig pitched a fine
three-hitter to give Brooklyn a 6-0
triumph over the New York Giants.
St. Louis' second place Cards were
rained out of their home game
with Chicago.
In the American League, the
Senators scored their fifth vic-
tory in six games with the Bosox.
Carlos Paula's two-run double in
the sixth off Ike Delock clinched
the triumph for Chuck Stobbs.
The veteran lefthander held the
Sox to eight hits, one of them Ted
Williams' run-scoring pinch single
in the seventh.
The Tigers got a total of 17
hits, including homers by Ray
Boone and Earl Torgeson to en-
able Billy Hoeft to breeze home
with a nine hit win. Hec Lopez
and Gus Zernial hit homers for
Kansas City.
The Baltimore Orioles stole the
New York Yankee slugging thund-
er last night to whip them, 9-4,
with consecutive first inning
homers by Bob Nieman and Gus
Triandos signalling the outburst.

By SI COLEMAN
Six weeks of playing have passed
already, and fans have seen some
surprising developments occur in
the relatively new major league
season.
Perhaps the biggest surprise has
been the stellar performance of
the Pittsburgh Pirates. Under the
dynamic leadership of their new
manager, Bobby Bragan, the Pi-;
rates have remained in the thick
of the pennant battle. As of to--;
day, the Pirates are tied for third
place, and are only one game
away from first.
Western Clubs Set Pace
The National League has been
somewhat dominated by the west-
ern clubs-St. Louis, Milwaukee,
and Cincinnati. These three
teams, along with defending
World Champion Brooklyn Dodg-
ers are in an extremely close bat-
tle for the league lead.
Helping the Redlegs so far this
year, in addition to their usually
reliable power at the plate, has
been an extremely balanced pitch-
ing staff, headed by Brooks Law-
rence (5-0).
Phillies Start Slow
The collapse of the Philadelphia,
Phillies has been disheartening to
the Quaker City fans. Neverthe-
less, they point to the Phillies'
first-division finish last year after
a similar start.
The Phillies this year lost ten
straight, before recently acquired
pitcher from the St. Louis Cardi-
nals, Stu Miller, halted the streak.
In addition, everyone's all star
pitcher, Robin Roberts, has been
having his troubles. His record is
five wins and four lost.
Over in the American League, to

no one's surprise, the New York
Yankees have dominated play. The
phenomenal hitting of Mickey
Mantle and Yogi Berra have kept
the Yanks right on top.
Mantle has hovered around the
.400 mark since the start of the
season, and Berra is second only
to him in RBI's and home runs.
In addition, pitcher Whitey Ford
has moved along at a fast pace
and has chalked up a 6-1 record
thus far this season.
Most of the Yankee competition
has been offered by the Cleveland
Indians and the Boston Red Sox.
They are both only a few games
out of first place.
The other teams have gotten off
to a rather slow start, but as many
observers say, "The season is new,
and it's still anybody's race."
