. . in Big Ten opener

Big Ten Golf
Starts Today
At Colu mbus
Michigan Team Plays
In FourrWay Match
The Michigan golf team opens
its Big, Ten schedule today in a
meet against Indiana, Purdue, and
Ohio State at Columbus.
Purdue's squad, Big Ten chiam-
pions two years running, will be
the team to watch. Outstanding
man in the meet will be Purdue's
Joe Campbell.
Campbell is the Big Ten indivi-
dual champion. To add to his links
fame, he progressed to the semi-
finals of the National Amateur
tournament and was invited to
play in the Masters tournament
at Augusta, Ga. earlier this month.
Expects No Trouble
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer ex-
pects no trouble from the Hoosier
linkmen. Indiana has been in the
Conference cellar for the last two
years and is not expected to have
a much better season this year.
The remaining team in the meet,
Ohio State~ has only one letter-
' man back. He is Fritz Schmidt.
Last year this quadrangular
meet was also played at Columbus.
The Wolverine linksters upset
everyone then. Ohio State was
beaten 19-17, Indiana 26-10, and
Purdue 212-14%.
Michigan will probably lead off
with John Schubeck and John Law
in the first foursome. Schubeck
might well be the Wolverines top
man. Law, a sophomore, shot good
rounds on the vacation trip.
Also at the meet are Skip Mac-
Michael, Stan Kwasiborski, Fred
Micklow, Pat Keefe, and Capt.
Steve Uzelac.
MacMichael was low man in the
Detroit meet earlier this week
shooting a spectacular 74.
Scored Separately
Today's meet is scored as four
separate dual meets. Each team
has three separate matches. The
team emerging with the lowest
overall score also gets credit for
an extra dual meet victory.
Coach Katzenmeyer has not seen
any of the three teams yet this
season, and would not make any
predictions about the outcome of
the match. He is hoping for good
weather conditions for the match,
as he feels that bad weather this
season has kept down the perform-
ance of the team.
Starting the Big Ten season
with a victory would indeed be
gratifying to the team and its
coach after losing two of the three
meets already played this season.

On the strength of four home
runs, Michigan's baseball team ex-
ploded to down a highly touted
Galen Cisco and his Ohio State
teammates, 14-4.

SEASONED SLUGGER-Al Sigman, Wolverine veteran right field-
er, who faced the possibility of being benched for yesterday's game
with Ohio State, because of poor hitting, came back with a
vengeance to lead Michigan at the plate with three hits and four
runs batted in.

Special to The Daily
one of the only two teams ever to
capture four major Penn Relay
titles in one year, will have its
work cut out today if they hope
to win one title.
As the 63rd annual Penn Relays
got underway here yesterday the
12 - man Wolverine contingent
could only manage a sixth place
in the distance medley, the only
final run, and a second place in
their preliminary heat to world
record holder Texas in the 880-yd.
Villanova College, which is con-
ceded a better than even chance
to capture three of the eight
coveted relay crowns in this grand-
daddy of all relay carnivals tucked
one of them away by capturing the
medley event.
Olympic 1500 meter gold medal-
ist Ron Delany anchored the win-
ning Wildcat squad in a race that
"wasn't even close.'"
The Wolverine team composed
of Robin Varian, Don Matheson,
Geert Keilstrup and Helmar Doll-
wet found themselves pocketed in

the middle of the 17-team race
early in the event and they
couldn't break away.
In the 880-yd. event, the Long-
horns captured the heat in 1:26.4
with the Michigan squad of Big
Ten 60-yd. dash titlist Jim Pace,
George Gluppe, Laird Sloan and
Dick Flodin four tenths of a second
farther back.
Given Winning Chance
Only one other Michigan team,
the four mile relay squad, is given
any kind of chance to win today.
This team made up of Dollwet,
Keilstrup, Chuck Morton and Jack
Green will find the going rough,
however, as Indiana, Syracuse, St.
John's and Manhattan promise
tough competition.
In the special individual events
yesterday two meet records were
While the-relay events attracted
most of the Franklin Field specta-
tors yesterday, Olympic broard
jump winner Greg Bell of Indiana
received his share of attention by
smashing the meet record with a
leap of 26'11/2" to seriously threat-
en Jesse Owens world record of
26'81 2".
DES MOINES - The Drake Re-
lays got under way here yesterday
at rain soaked Drake Stadium with
Al Oerter Olympic discus winner
leading the hot University of Kan-
sas team with a first in his spe-
Oerter's throw of 177' 10" was
well below his winning Olympic
throw of 184' 11" but it was plenty
good enough to win him the title
for the second year and shatter the
meet record.
The Jayhawks also took two out
of three of the opening day relays
as they won the University sprint
medley and the four mile relay.
Michigan's two entries in the
relays, Captain Dave Owen and
Ron Kramer, will both compete in
the shot-put today. Kramer will
also probably see action in the
high jump.

DETROIT OP) - Walter O.
(Spike) Briggs quit yesterday as
executive vice president, general
manager and as a director of the
Detroit Baseball Co., ending an
era in the history of the American
League Tigers.
A front office squabble resulted
in his resignation. And for the
first time since his late father,
Walter O. Briggs Sr., bought into
the club in 1920 there is no Briggs
in the management. No successor
was named immediately.
Only Thursday the 45-yr.-old
Briggs was quoted as saying new
owners' who acquired the Tigers
from his father's estate for 5/ 2
million d o 11 a r s last summer
"aren't going to give me any trou-
ble - I'll walk out first."
When it was published, Briggs
denied the quote.
But Friday he resigned. His ac-

tion followed by a week the re= ig-

headed an 11-member syndicate
of new owners, as president. Knorr

Scores of the "B" softball games
played yesterday at Ferry Field
were almost as lopsided as the big
16-inch ball. Along with the "B"
games were a number of "A" soft-
ball games.
It was a song for Delta Tau Delta
as they whitewashed Phi Kappa
Tau, 22-1, in a "B" contest. Sup-
plying the big guns for the Dclts
was John Sealby with a home run
and two singles in as many times

good start scoring 13 times in the
first inning.
Cross Plate 45 Times
Kappa Sigma and Delta Upsilon
together crossed the plate 45 times'
in less than an hour. But the Kap-

had four.



Delta Upsilon, trying to close
the gap, scored seven runs which
were far from being enough.
