dence Hall "A" softball circuit
Kelsey, trailing 13-5 going into
the final frame brought across 7
straight runs, but the game ended
when the would-be tying run was
thrown out at the plate. Pete Me-
kas earned honors as the top hitter
of the day's activities, blasting a
home run, triple and a single.
Don. Lull of Huber blazed the
ball past 10 Winchell men, giving
up only 2 hits diuring the course
of his team's 9-3 victory.
Another 2-hit performance was
turned in by Frank Balle of
Strauss. Seven Hinsdale men went
down on strikes as they bowed to
him 6-1.
Frank Alandt bested Fred Miller
in the only pitching duel of the
day as Chicago turned back Michi-
gan 4-2 by scoring three runs on
one hit in the fourth.

vacation trip, hurled in an intra-
squad game yesterday for the first
time this spring, and Fisher was
pleasantly surprised with the big
lefty's control.
Herrnstein, who played center
field throughout the seven contests,
will remain there, despite his poor
showing (.179) at the plate. Fisher
plans to use him shortly as a
pitcher, but believes he has "good
potential" at both spots.
'M' Beaten by Quantico
Michigan's only defeat came at
the hands of the Quantico (Va.)
Marine base nine, 3-1, in seven
innings. Games with two teams-
Delaware and George Washington
-were cancelled because of poor
weather conditions.
Two hitters in particular shone

North Carolina, 24%j-5%j, and the
next day they scared Duke before
subsiding, 16-14.
Although coaches are not usu-
ally pleased after losing, Michigan
coach Bert Katzenmeyer has many
reasons to be optimistic about this
year's link squad.
Team Looks Impressive
During the week before the two
meets the whole team was looking
much better than usual for this
early in the season. The two Caro-
lina opponents have the advantage
of playing almost half their sea-
son by this time of the year, while
this was the first chance for the
Wolverines to spend time outdoors.
Katzenmeyer states that he was
very impressed with the way that
the seven Wolverines were hitting

the ball during their daily work-
outs. "We played a lot of golf," he
said, "at least 27 holes a day all
week. The boys had good contact
with ball from the first, and are
farther along than usual after only
one week outdoors."
Katzenmeyer was particularly
pleased with his first two linksters,
John Schubeck and John Law.
They accounted for over half the
team's points in both meets. Law
had par rounds of 72 both days,
and is the first Michigan golfer
that Katzenmeyer recalls who had
been unscored upon in the annual
southern matches.
From the showing of the team!
thus far, Katzenmeyer believes
that they should be at least as
strong as last year. "We again
have good balance," he said,
