Pointing to Michigan's Big Ten
record as conclusive, Ray Fisher
said, "Any time we haven't made
seven runs we haven't won.
After hearing Fisher speak, a
listener would never be able to
guess that his team is leading the
Fortunately, the Wolverines
managed to pound out the needed
runs over the weekend. Even still,
sixteen runs in two games was the
bare minimum needed to subdue
the conference invaders from Min-
nesota and Iowa, 7-6 and 9-8, res-
Pitchers Draw Praise
Despite the sporadic hurling
Fisher was rather generous in his
praise of John Herrnstein, and of
Glenn Girardin, the crafty south-
paw who picked up both victories.
"John pitched as well as he ever
had for the first three innings
against Iowa, but he "clunked" up
in the fourth when he gave four
singles and ,three walks," said
Fisher. "If he had gotten out of
that inning, I think he would have
gone all the way."
Girardin, whom the diamond
mentor calls "a better finisher-
upper than a starter" turned in
two tremendous relief jobs, giving
up only six hits and one run in
the ten innings he worked.
Top Conference Mark
The star reliefer now sports the
top record in the conference, a 4-0
The extensive batting practice
that Michigan underwent last
week paid great dividends, espe-
cially for Ken Tippery and Steve
Boros, although the team as a
whole was out-hit by Minnesota,
12-9, and by Iowa, 10-9.

Tippery Big Difference
When asked to compare this
year's team to last season's aggre-
gation, Fisher stated, "The big dif-
ference has been Ken. Did you
notice that all his hits were really
tagged? He has been a grand hit-
ter this year."
The ever-steady Boros was the
hero in Friday's win over the Go-

"It was just a miserable day!"
That is Michigan Coach Bert
Katzenmeyer's comment on the
Wolverines' triangular meet
against Michigan State and De-
troit last Saturday.
The "M" squad beat Detroit by
a 2812-7% margin. Detroit just
isn't in the same class as either
Michigan or Michigan State.
The Wolverines lost to still sur-
prising MSU 19%-16/2.
Meet Ends Season
The triangular meet marked the
end of the dual meet season, with
the Big Ten championships com-
ing up next.
The weekend total for the Mich-
igan squad was 920. This repre-
sents their best team total and is
a good sign.
Speaking of his team, Katzen-
meyer said that he was definitely
encouraged, but still disappointed.
"The team has not yet reached its
potential. It is capable of a better
Katzenmeyer was very im-
pressed with the Spartan team. He
added, "MSU can't be counted out
of the Conference finals."
Sophomore John Law of Michi-
gan was medalist for the after-
noon with a brilliant 145. Law has
been off his game the last three
weeks, and his outstanding rounds
Saturday are a hopeful indication
that he is coming out of his slump.
However, Fred Micklow had a
terrible 36 holes, finishing with
a 163. In defense of Micklow it
should be said that he was not
feeling up to par.
John Schubeck, Captain Steve
Uzelac and Stan'Kwasiborski all
shot respectable rounds, but none

Gomberg Wins in 'A' Softball
By PAUL BORMAN
Michigan's tennis team ended a
highly successful dual-meet sea-;
son last weekend by trouncing In-
diana and Illinois.
The two wins boosted the Wol-
verines' string of consecutive vic-
tories to 43, highest of any cur-
rent college team in the nation.
Coach Bill Murphy and his
squad will conclude the Big Ten
season this weekend when they
put their Conference Title on the
line at Evanston.
Last Friday's meet with Indiana
saw Michigan romp to an 8-1 win.
Jensen Only Loser
- Senior Dale Jensen at sixth
singles absorbed the lone Wolver-
ine loss, but Barry MacKay play-
ing first singles came very close
MacKay had to go three sets to
beat Gerry Parchute, the Hoosiers'
number one man. Parchute out-
lasted MacKay in the first set,
Farther on in the contest, Par-
chute had MacKay at match
point, but the Wolverine net star
fought back to win the match.
MacKay Below Par
Coach Murphy said: "MacKay's
play in last weekend's meets was
very bad and if he doesn't improve
it would not be surprising if he
gets beaten in this weekend's Con-
Saturday, in Champaign, the
rain waited long enough for Mich-
igan to win all six singles matches

The Big Red "A" softball ma-
chine of Gomberg rolled to a 13-3
victory over a hapless Van Tyne
nine yesterday in a semifinal play-
off at South Ferry Field.
Spurring the Gomberg attack
j was Dave Karr who piled a total
of three hits in the onslaught. Don
Treder was the winning pitcher.
In another 'A' game Kelsey de-
feated Willlams in an evenly
matched contest which finally
broke loose in the sixth inning.
Williams had pulled even 5-5 going
into the big inning, when Kelsey
exploded for three big runs and
won the game 8-5.
The lone other 'A' game played

a close victory over Cooley, 4-3.
Ed Becker led the Chicago attack
with three hits and knocked in the

How to roll a box car Southern style
THE rings this railroader's holding are Timken*
tapered roller bearings. Mounted, instead of ordi-
nary friction bearings, on freight car axles, Timken
bearings reduce friction so much you can actually roll
the car by yourself.
Reducing friction to a minimum enables Timken
bearings to eliminate the hot box problem, No. 1 cause
of freight train delay. They roll the load instead of slid-
ing it. And that's why the Southern Railroad has started
to go "Roller Freight", with 415 of its freight cars on
Timken bearings. One of 58 railroads making the big
to pioneer improvements like this with us, help find
new places to reduce friction, speed up machines. Men
who want to grow with the world's largest manufac-
turer of tapered roller bearings. Men who will work
hand-in-hand with the railroads, and with the people
who make aircraft, automobiles, construction and farm
