Declare Sigman Ineligible

for

Big

Ten Baseball

Ruling Stems from Signing'
Of Minor LeagueContract

(Continued from Page 1)

The Michigan officials, however,
were not aware of the Wisconsin
Rapids contract.
What prompted this late action
by the National Association was
still unclear last night. Sigman
has been participating in Varsity
football and baseball here for the
past two years and no one had
previously questioned his amateur
standing.
Athletic Director H. 0. (Fritz)
Crisler was cut of town and could
not be reached for coma. nt. Sig-
man, contated at his horme, had
nothing to say.
Inopportune Time
Sigman's suspension come at an
inopportune time for the Wolver-
ines, who are currently hanging
on to a slim lead in the Big Ten
standings and have a vital three-
game home and home series with
Michigan State coming up this
weekend.
It is considered quite lucky that
the suspension of Sigman didn't
come earlier. The senior athlete
has been prominent in both base-
ball and football.

Last fall Sigman was one of the
key linemen on the football squad.
The husky outfielder was bat-
ting .323 in the Conference and
had seven runs batted in through
last weekend's play. Fisher indi-
cated that he will use sophomore
Ralph Hutchings in right field
this weekend.
The Second Time
This is the second time this
semester that suspensions have hit
a Michigan team late in the sea-
son. The Wolverines hockey team
lost the service of John Rend all,
Wally Maxwell and Mike Buchan-
an on the eve of the NCAA tour-
nament last March.
The hockey suspensions also
concerned athletes that had pre-
viously signed professional con-
tracts.

DOUBLE TROUBLE - Bob Mitchell (left) and Al Urbankus, are
two big reasons why the Illinois track team could grab a high
place in the Big Ten track finals this weekend. Mitchell is highly
rated in the 100- and 220-yd. dashes, while Urbankus is the high
jump favorite.

MICHIGAN HOPES SLIM:
Close Race Seen for Tracy Title

'M' Netters
Favored
For Crown
By DON DRESCHER
The Michigan net squad will
embark for Evanston this after-
noon, in hopes of carrying home
the honors from the Conference
meet to be held there Thursday,
Friday and Saturday.
The Wolverines' record of 43
consecutive dual meet victories in-
cludes a perfect slate in the regu-
lar Big Ten competition this sea-
son.
Iowa looms as the dark horse
as far as Michigan is concerned.
The Hawkeyes were defeated by
Illinois, who in turn were defeated
by Michigan, but the Iowans are
reported to be strong at several
positions.
Andrews Favored
Foremost in the Iowa attack is
19-year-old sophomore Art An-
drews, who is favored to go all the
way in the Conference Meet. An-
drews was a member of the Junior
Davis Cup squad in 1954-55-56
and after winning the 1956 singles
title, in addition to playing on the
doubles team, he was ranked first
in the national junior ratings. In
this, his ititial season of Big Ten
competition, he has been trounc-
ing his opposition with monoton-
ous regularity.
Another promising singles pros-
pect is Illinois' Carl Noble who
carried Michigan's Barry MacKay
to three sets before losing to the
Wolverine star. Gerry Parchute,
Indiana's first singles man, also
extended MacKay.
Michigan's Mark Jaffe should
prove to be a strong contender in
the meet. During the season he
played consistently well against
some very capable opponents.
Overall Strength
Michigan has shown good
strength at all positions and is
given a good chance to repeat as
Big Ten team champions although
the Hawkeyes, hungry for their
first Conference championship,
are expected to provide stiff com-
petition. Illinois and Northwest-
ern also can prove to be very
tough opponents as the Wolver-
ines have seen already this season.

Sigma Phi Epsilon ran wild yes-
terday at Ferry Field in the semi-
finals of the A' first place play-
offs, as they beat Tau Kappa
Epsilon, 5-1.
The Sig Eps were a running ball
club, as they succeeded in stealing
seven bases in the seven inning
affair. The highlight of the "go-
go" type of game was a double
steal, by Otto Gutowsky and Rich
Crawford.
Cal Atwood came through again
for the Sig Ep's, by pitching a
sparkling three hitter, and blasting
a triple to knock in a run.
Tau Delta Phi beat Beta Theta
Pi, 14-12, in the second place semi-
finals of 'A' softball. Although the
Beta's scored seven times in the

first inning the Tau Delts came
back with two sustained assaults
capped by a fine clutch pitching
performance in the sixth and
seven th by Hanley Gurwin to wiri
the ballgame.
Sigma Nu Loses
In a fourth place playoff game,
Phi Kappa Tau beat Sigma Nu,
6-3, with Tom Mazenec taking the
laurels for the victors. Mazenec
belted a grand slam homer in the
fifth inning to win the ballgame,
and he also pitched a four hitter.
In a fourth place playoff game
Chi Psi bested Theta Chi, 12-7.
In a 'B' softball game, Sigma
Phi blasted Lambda Chi Alpha,
21-5.

By BOB BOLTON

From the predictions of the
coaches and on the basis of past
performances it looks as though
this weekend's track finals at

Evanston will be as close or closer
than the indoor finals.
It is doubtful that from the
point of overall team strength the
Big Ten has ever been so balanced.

f 'M' pn'l d... STEVE UZELAC

By RAY BERNREUTER'
It seems that Steve Uzelac,
Captain of the Michigan golf
squad, was practically born to play
the game.
In the Uzelac family are four
uncles who play the game. One
of them is Bill Uzelac, who is the
pro at Plum Hollow, Detroit.
Uzelac, who hails from Detroit,
started from the bottom. He cad-
died at nearby golf courses, and
soon was swinging the clubs him-
self.
Whenever there was a tourna-
ment, Uzelac was sure to be on
hand to caddy for the best golfers
he could find.
"The best way to learn the game
is just to watch good golfers who
can give you hints," Uzelac said.
High School Champion
As a senior in high school, Uze-
lac won the High School cham-
pionsiip for Detroit. In 1953 he
also won the Times-Hearst tour-
nament for high school players.
Ip the summer before entering
Michigan as a student, Uzelac met
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer, and his
first season here he played on
the freshman team. For the past
three seasons he has played var-
sity.
Uzelac is an Evans Scholar. Now
he is a senior in Business Admin-
istration, and he hopes to enter
Michigan's Law School.
When he was asked to evaluate
the Wolverine golf squad, he said,
"Man for man it is the best team
in the conference." He went on to
say that the boys just can't get
together. One day one man is good
while someone else has a bad
score. He compared Michigan's
balanced squad to Ohio State's,
which has only a few good players
and to Purdue's which depends
mostly on Joe Campbell.
Praises Katzenmeyer
"Coach Katzenmeyer is a coach
that is not only a good player but
also a good instructor," remarked
Uzelac. "He can really help you."
Uzelac thinks the Wolverine golf
course rates well with the rest of
the courses in the Big Ten. The

course is hard to play early in the
spring for two reasons. For one,
the wind is usually strong, and
two, the ground is soft which
doesn't give the ball a good roll.
Uzelac has the most trouble on
the Michigan course on the third
hole. It is 245 yds., par 3. "I get
fewer pars on this hole than any
other," says Uzelac. He can re-
member only twice when he got
birdies on the hole.
His best score or te Michigan
course is a 71. He has gotten two

holes-in-one, but neither of them
have been in competition.
Tournament Conditions Hard
Uzelac said that tournament
conditions are much harder than
regular golfing. He explained that
they spend as much as two months
getting a course ready for a big
tourney. They narrow the fair-
ways; they let the roughs grow in;
extra sand traps are put near the
greens; the pin is moved around
where it is difficult to hit.

Three teams, indoor titlist Indi-
ana, Ohio State and Illinois are
all in contention for the crown
and while the Buckeyes will prob-
ably rule as the "expert's choice"
there is little to choose between
the three.
The Hoosiers have a squad that
shows good strength in all but the
distance events; Ohio State has
Glen Davis, a track team in him-
self, and Illinois has three topo
men in Bob Mitchell, Bob Dintel-
mann and Ail] Urbankis.
After these top three squads
come Michigan State, Iowa and
Michigan, all with good teams but
also with irreparable holes.
The Spartans, except for quar-
ter-miler Dave Lean, have no out-
standing stars, the Hawkeyes have
power in the discus and distance
events but no real capable per-
formers between 100 and 880 yds.
and the Wolverines have no hurd-
lers and no top-notch stars except
for Dave Owen.
The story of the meet will prob-
agly be written in the perform-
ances of two men-Ohio State's
Davis and Greg Bell of Indiana.
Davis could practically win the
meet single-handedly for the
Buckeyes. At Columbus in March
he captured 16 points for the
second-place Buckeyes and he
could do better this time.
He will probably win the 220 low
hurdles, place in the highs, place
in or win the 100-yd. dash, place
in the broadiump, and anchor a
very tough mile relay squad.
Bell isn't as versatile as his
Olympic counterrart but he is vir-
tually conceded the broadjump,
could take the 100-yd. dash and
may take the 220-yd. dash.
