1-3

By BRUCE BENNETT
Special to The Daily
KALAMAZOO-Michigan ham-
mered five Western Michigan
pitchers for 11 hits here yester-
day as it pounded a 10-3 victory
over the Broncos at Hyames
Field.
The Wolverines open their
home schedule at Ferry Field to-
day when they meet Central
Michigan at 3:30 p.m.
Michigan wasted no time
against Western, exploding for
three runs in the first inning, but
it was a four-run outburst in the
sixth that sewed up the contest.
Tippery Homers
In the opening frame, Captain
Ken Tippery provided the early
margin by blasting a three-run
homer, Ernie Myers and Bruce
Fox aboard. The blow was one of
two hits by Tippery, the other be-
ing a single in the eighth which
produced another tally.
Third baseman Myers, playing
his first year as a regular, got the
big hit in the sixth, a triple, after
Steve Boros, Jim Vukovich, and
Gene Snider had singled, and Al
Sigman walked. .
400-ft. Roundtripper
Michigan's second homer of the
day was poled by John Herrn-
stein in the third inning. The big
center fielder belted the ball over
the right fMld wall, 400 feet away.
Pitching, which proved to be
one of Michigan's trouble spots on

the southern trip, was somewhat
improved yesterday.
Don Poloskey, who shared hurl-
ing duties with Glen Girardin, was
charged with Western's first two
runs. Two bases on balls which
he issued in the fourth eventually
crossed the plate.
Girardin, who gave up only one
hit over the final five frames,
was also plagued by wildness in
spots, walking three. However, he'
was behind on several other hit-
ters and was forced to throw a
lot of pitches.
Gives Up Four-bagger
Western's lone run off Girardin
came in the sixth, when short-
stop Ken Hamlin rifled a home
run over the left field fence. This
has been the only run scored off
the little lefthander in 15 innings
this spring.
The Wolverine defense, which
has been on the shaky side all
spring, tightened a bit against
the Broncos. Michigan fielders
committed two errors, their low-
est total in several outings. The
miscues were a throwing error by
Myers and a dropped foul fly by
Snider.
Coach Ray Fisher, still search-
ng for the pitching he feels he'll
need to get him through the Big
Ten season in good shape, will
test Jim Clark and Dean Fink-
beiner against Central Michigan
today.
Clark has wins over Maryland
and Washington and Lee' to his
credit, going the distance in both
games. Finkbeiner received credit
for the victory against George-
town, but lasted only six innings.

Delta Upsilon
Wins Initial
I-M Contest
By STEVE SALZMAN
Delta Upsilon's Dave Cobb
twirled a masterful no-hitter as
he led his team to a one-sided
21-0 victory over Delta Kappa Ep-
silon in I-M action yesterday.
Cobb mixed blazing fast balls
with some change of pace pitches
to strike out eight men. Helping
out the DU's was Stew Evans who
blasted a 'Ruthian' smash to deep
left center field for a three-run
homer.
Cal Haywood opened up the
I-M season for Delta Tau Delta
by pitching a neat three hitter
over Kappa Sigma, 6-1. Kappa
Sigma got two of its hits and its
only run off Haywood in the last
inning.
Sigma Chi Wins
Sigma Chi blasted Phi Kappa
Psi, 11-3. Featured in the contest
was Sigma Chi's Carl Nordberg's
line drive home run o ei the cen-
ter fielder's head with one man on
base. Pitching again was a major
factor in the win. Marv Nyren
struck out eleven men with his
blistering fast ball, fanning the
s- side in three different innings.
571 In a wild scoring melee Alpha
w Sigma Phi beat Chi Psi, 14-12.
10 Coming from behind, Chi Psi's
Bill Rusch hit a grand slamnmer
irl the fourth inning. They scored
ae two more in the fifth to make the
k score, 14-12, but with two on and
1g two out their last batter popped
in out to second base to insure the
victory for Alpha Sigma Phi.

New Captain

'MY May Host
Next NCAA
Swim Meet
Recommended by
Rules Committee
The National Collegiate Athle-
tic Association swimming rules
committee yesterday recom-
mended the University of Michi-
gan as site of the 1958 NCAA
swimming championship meet.
Reached at his home last night,
Michigan Athletic Director H. O.
"Fritz" Crisler commented after
being informed of the decision
that he was very much delighted
to hear of the recommendation.
Wolverine swimming coach,
Gus Stager, reacted in much the
some way. Stager added that ev-
ery year the meet rotates between
the East and the Midwest and
that next year it was the Big Ten's
opportunity to host the tourna-
ment.

baseball season is already over -
the New York Yankees have just

League pennant.
Anyway, this is what the Michi-
gan Daily Sports staff believes.

consensus also predicts that Mil-
waukee will clinch the National
League pennant followed by Cin-
cinnati and Brooklyn. The Detroit
Tigers are picked as the runners-
up to the Yankees in the American
League.
The Cleveland Indians and Chi-
cago White Sox were picked to
tie for fourth place in the junior
circuit.

Biggest Score
Lambda Chi Alpha blasted Sig-
ma Phi, 26-3. Leading the as-
sault for Lambda Chi were Len
Calabrese, Bill Billmiere and Jer-
ry Ebmeyer, all of whom rocketed
homers off the Sigma Phi pitch-
ers.
Other scores were: Delta Sigma
Phi 19, Triangle 10; Sigma Alpha
Mu over Theta Delta Chi, forfeit;
Zeta Psi over Phi Epsilon Pi, for-
feit; and in the independent
league; All Canadiens, 4, Owens
Co-op 1; Seldom Seen Kids over
Forestry, forfeit.
CORRECTION
A mistake in yesterday's Daily
reported that Gomberg defeated
Lloyd, 9-7, in I-M softball. The
reverse was true, Lloyd defeating
Gomberg, 9-7.

MONTREAL ()-The fired up
Montreal Canadiens retained the
Stanley Cup, symbol of National
Hockey League supremacy, for a
second consecutive year last night,
defeating the Boston Bruins, 5-1.
It was a rugged and bloody
battle that wrapped up the final
best-of-seven playoff series for
the Frenchmen, four games to one..
The Canadiens, denied a four-
game sweep by a Bruin comeback
that snared a 2-0 victory in Bos-
ton last Sunday, made no mistake
on this one, building a 3-0 lead
before the second period was
barely underway.
Rough Play
It was a furiously fought game,
with numerous penalties and a
free-for-all breaking out just be-
fore the opening period came to
a close.
The injuries almost matched
the goals as Montreal claimed its
eighth Stanley Qup championship.
Maurice (The Rocket) Richard,
the 35-year-old hustler who scored
four goals in Montreal's second
game victory, went off the ice un-
der his own power in the third
period, bleeding from a head
wound suffered when he was
slammed to the ice after being
checked by Boston's Doug Mohn.

Earlier, Boston defenseman Bob
Armstrong was taken to a hospital
for x-rays of his ankle, injured
when he slammed off his own
goalie, Doi Simmons, and crashed
into the end boards.'
And Boston's John Peirson
wound up with a head cut as the
result of some high-sticking by
Montreal's Dollard St. Laurent.
Rene Pronovost opened the
scoring for. the Canadiens, beating
Simmons with a shot just outside
the goal crease at 18:11 of the
first period. The goal came after
Don Marshall had been unable to
get a sho* away from scramble
in front of the Boston nets.
