ahead in the second and possibly,
final set, 4-3.
But the Michigan player was up
to the task as he won to tie.up
the set. The turning point of the
match came in the next game with
the score tied. MacKay hit a
smash which the husky sophomore

in the final set of their match,
and walked away with the match,
6-2.
Well-Placed Shots
Mark Jaffe faced his toughest
opponent in the semi-finals when
he played Hugh Tierney of Min-
nesota. Jaffe won the first set,
6-4, and drilled well-placed shots
past Tierney to easily down the
Minnesota player, 6-2 in the sec-
ond set.
The final round of the second
singles was predicted as a toss-up.
Bob Potthast of Iowa had rolled
past his opponents and was a
slight favorite to defeat Jaffe for
the title.
But Jaffe,, considered by his op-
position to be -one of the cleverest
players in the tournament, com-
pletely out-smarted Potthast and
defeated his bewildered opponent,
6-2, 6-0.
Soggy Conditions
At the Skokie Country Club in
Glen Coe, Ill., Potter and trickson
won their third and fourth singles
consecutively. The matches were
played there due to the soggy
conditions of the Northwestern
clay courts.
Potter whizzed past George Fry-
man of Indiana, 6-1, 6-3 but had
some trouble with Illinois' Jim
Van Tine. Van Tine extended Pot-
ter before losing 10-8 in the first
set, but the Michigan captain
went on to grab the second set,
6-3.
These first three Michigan
players, perhaps the most feared
threesome in Big Ten tennis his-
tory, will end their Conference
careers today in doubles action.
However, the future of Michigan
tennis was made brighter yester-
day by the performance of sopho-
more Jon Erickson.,

E A S T LANSING - Michigan's
title hopes went the way of the
greater part of the Big Ten base-
ball season.
It was inundated.
One team Northwestern gained
by the weather-or lack of it. They
backed into the title when their
games ,with Purdue were rained
out. Iowa's chances were quelled,
when they split with Indiana.
Valiant Effort
Wolverines made a valiant effort
against the elements at East Lan-
sing yesterday. They built up a
6-2 lead in four innings of the
first game of the scheduled double
header. Then the clouds opened
up.
Championsh;p hopes seemed to
hang in the balance for two hours
as they waited but the storm.
But as each second ticked away
and it became evident that the
second game was an impossibility,
the Wolverines hopes dimmed.
Chances Lost
As it was, hopes need never have
been raised. Cancellation of the
Northwestern double header cost
Michigan all chances for the
crown.
Not knowing this the Wolverines
looked like a team intent on win-
ning their 22nd baseball title.
They got to Michigan State's

in the first inning for three runs,

LOS ANGELES () - A drive
began yesterday for withdrawal
from the Pacific Coast Conference
of its big three - UCLA, USC and
California.
Powerful alumni groups at all
three schools are reportedly giv-
ing the move their backing, and
they're reportedly getting behind-
the-scenes support from some top
officials at the schools.
The drive was sparked by a
meeting here Friday of the Board
of Regents of the University of
California, of which UCLA here
and California at Berkeley, are the
two main campuses.
UCLA alumni made a fervent
pitch for immediate withdrawal.
The Regents didn't say yes, but
more important, they didn't say
no. The alumni are taking that
as a green light for continued ac-
tion toward getting out. -
The three -hools have borne
the brunt of PCC penalties for
violations of rules against subsi-
dization. UCLA missed expuisiot.

another three run outburst in the
second.
Myers Starts Rally
Ernie Myers started the game by
drawing a walk. Bruce Fox laid
down a bunt which State first
baseman, Roscoe Davis booted,
allowing Myers to go to third.
Ken Tippery scored Myers with
an infield single that sneaked past
the first and second baseman and
stopped dead before it touched the
outfield grass.
Steve Boros blooped a single to
right and Gene Snider walked
loading the bases. Snider was
batting fifth in Ray Fisher's re-
vised lineup which saw John Herr-
stein benched.
Wild Pitch Scores Run
Ralph Hutchings, playing cen-
ter, bounced one back to the
pitcher which forced Tippery at
the plate. With Jack Lewis at bat,
Perranowski cut loose with a wild
pitch, allowing Boros to score.
In the second inning with one
out, Myers singled, Fox was hit
by a pitched ball and Tippery'
lined one over the center fielder's'
head.'t, rolled to the fence, scor-
ing Myers and Fox with Tippery
stopping at third. h r
Boros followed with a sacrifice
fly that brought in Tippery end-j
ing Michigan's scoring.

for the Wolverines in the first

IOWA CITY - Wisconsin's
Roger Rubendall spearheaded the
Badger golfers to the Big Ten Golf
Title here yesterday, while Mich-
igan finished an unimpressive
third.
Iowa's John Liechty, firing a
s c o r c h i n g three-under-par 69
round, and John Marschall, with
a low 70 led the Hawkeyes to a
second-place finale.
Campbell Two Under
Although Rubendall shot the
best golf of the day, Purdue's Joe
Campbell carded two one-under-
par 71s and emerged as Big Ten
Individual Champion for the sec-
ond successive year. Rubendall,
the 1955 champion, was just one
stroke behind him 'with a total
score of 291.
Ohio State's Ted Katula gar-
nered third place medalist honors
with Wisconsin's Dave Forbes
grabbing fourth; Liechty, John
Law of Michigan and Frank Carr
of Ohio State tied for fifth place
laurels.
In spite of the rain Friday night
and slight winds, the playing con-
ditions were pretty good.
Two in Top Ten
The Wolverine linksters man-
aged to place two men in the top
ten - Law and Fred Micklow -
and remained in third place
throughout the tourney.
John Schubeck, who finished
fourth in last year's medalist race,
finished out of the top ten with
a 309 final score. Uzelac did a
little better with 307.
At the half-way point of the
tournament, Ohio State was on
top of the heap with Wisconsin,

Michigan and Iowa trailing, in
that order.
However, at the end of yester-
day's morning tour of the course,
the Badgers carded a team total
of 1141 to take the lead; Ohio
State, Michigan, Purdue and Iowa
followed with only 14 strokes sep-
arating the first and fifth squads.
In the afternoon rounds, Iowa
set a torrid pace, with Liechty
and Marschall's low, low rounds
in its favor, and worked its way
to second, dropping Ohio State to
fourth.

THREE GOOD STARTERS:
Pitchers, Doby, Fox Keep Sox in Front

Hand-Turned Fronts

of Ann Arbor in the past year.

(This Is the first in a series of two
articles, analyzing the top three
teams in each league.)
By STEVE SALZMAN
By ripping off a torrid ten out
of "twelve the Chicago White Sox
have regained the American
League lead, and at the moment
are free and clear, three games in
first.
What are the reasons for the
White Sox stand? First there is
the hitting of little Nelly Fox, the
Sox second baseman, who is cur-
rently hitting at a .358 clip-which
s good enough to be the American
League's second leading hitter.
Going Easy
Larry Doby, the man who
couldn't produce the big hit con-
sistently for the Cleveland Indians,
has been finding the going very
easy, as he is second in the Ameri-
can League in runs batted in.
In the pitching department, the
Sox have three proven starters.
Billy Pierce leads the Chicago
hurlers with a 6-2 mark. Pierce is
recognized as one of the best
southpaws in the majors, and he
is the White Sox's "big man for
the important ball game."
Right behind him is Dick Dono-
van, with a 3-2 record and Jack
Harshman at 3-1. The big question
of course, in the mound configura-

tions of the team is can Jim Wil-
son win after June., Right now
Wilson is leading the American
League in the earned run average
department, with a figure of 1.06.
However, in past years Wilson
faded after a good start..
Timely Hitting
The Cleveland Indians are still
hanging on in second. Their pitch-
ing, which has been up to its
usual excellence against the bot-
tom four teams in the league plus
some timely hitting by Vic Wertz
at .337, and Rookie Roger Maris

before he was injured, have kept
the Indians in the running.
The New York Yankees are sit-
ting in a tie for second place with
the Indians. It is easy to see why
they have not made the predicted
runaway with the pennant. It can
be said in two words-Yogi Berra.
Berra, who is a notorious spring
hitter, has never done so badly
for so long. Right now he is hitting
at a .216 clip, and what is more,
he is not supplying that timely hit
as he has been doing for the past
few years.
