Teams Head South

Nine Opens
Play Today
Michigan's baseball team will
play its first game of the spring
trip as it faces Wesleyan Univer-
sity at Winter Park, Fla., today.
The Wolverines' departed late
last night from Willow Run.
Coach Ray Fisher has taken 20
players, including 10 pitchers, on
the trip. This is the largest con-
tingent of pitchers that Fisher
has ever taken on a spring trip
in his 37 years at Michigan, but
the reason is obvious.
No Solid Pitchers
Fisher hasn't uncovered a solid
pitcher on his staff as of yet.
Neither John Herrnstein or Dean
Finkbeiner, his two returning let-
termen, have ever gone nine in-
nings in collegiate competition.
Outfielder Bob Sealby may take
a turn on the mound.
In the past the team had never
gone as far south as Florida, but
this year's team is departing from
that tradition as Fisher and as-
sistant Coach Matt Patanelli have
centered their 10-game spring
schedule at the Rollins College
Tournament in Winter Park.
Traveling Squad
The roster is as follows:
PITCHERS -- Jim- Bradshaw,
Dean Finl~beiner, Larry Hearin,
-y Ron Jernigan, Nick Liakonis, Gor-
don Rinckey, Al Koch and George
CATCHERS - Jim Dickey and
Gene Snider.
INFIELDERS - Dave Brown,
Bob Kucher, Ernie Myers, Bill Ro-
man and Eugene Struczewski.

Bert Katzenmeyer, Michigan
golf coach, and his six man team,
heads south today with an im-
mediate future that's very dis-
mal, if history is any test.
After spending the early part
of the' week at Pinehurst Country1
Club near Chapel Hill, N. C., the
Wolverine squad of Stan Kwasi-
borski, Ray Lovell, Pat Keefe,
Chuck Blackett, Dick Bither, and
Larry Leach, face the probability
of losing the team matches atj
Duke, next Thursday, and North
Carolina, next Friday.
Few Wins
What makes defeat so certain?
For one thing, Michigan has not1
won a team match on its annual
spring tour to North Carolina since
1951. That year they defeated
Wake Forest, 17-7.1
In fact, since 1947 when the
Wolverines began the trip they
have beaten North Carolina once,
in 1948, 24-12. They have never
dumped Duke.
Overall in the ten-year span
Michigan has a record of six wins,
23 loses, and one tie. They have1
lost the last 12 matches.
Why the poor record? Mainly1

it's due to the differences in the
seasons of the southern schools
and the Wolverines. North Caro-
lina and Duke will both have com-
pleted half of their schedules by
the time Michigan takes the
course against them.
The lone tie on the Michigan
record was with Wake Forest,
131/2-132/2, in 1949. It was prob-
ably one of the best performances,
team-wise, for the Wolverines in
the series.
Top Stars
Wake Forest had another rea-
son for Michigan's many loses in
top performers Arnold Palmer, and
Buddy Worsham, brother of Lew,
former National Open champion.
The previous year Palmer shot a
67, and Worsham a 68 as Wake
Forest downed Michigan 211/2-51/2.
The year after the tie, Palmer
and Worsham and their team-
mates again downed Michigan
Katzenmeyer's teams have faced
two other outstanding golfers down
south over the past ten years:
Harvie Ward at North 'Carolina
in 1949-50, and Mike Souchak at
Duke in 1951-52.

Michigan 's Title Chances Sm

Traveling into Spartan terri-
tory to face the nation's best in
gymnastics competition, Michi-
gan's unit moves to Michigan
State's Jenison Field House for
the NCAA finals, April 11-12.
Clouding any Wolverine hopes
of finishing near the top are
three dominating powers - Penn
State defending champion; Il-
linois, Big Ten titlist; and Iowa,
runnerup. in last week's Confer-
ence contest.
Four Stars
Penn State's twin scoring threat
of Jay Werner and Lee Cunning-

ham pace the eastern school along
with speedy rope climber Phil Mul-
len and tumbler Dave Dulaney.
Mulen topped the field in the
Eastern Collegiates with an
amazing :03.6 effort while Dula-
ney's work on the mat was top
in the meet.
Pressing the Nittany Lions will
be the balanced Illinois squad,
headed by Abe Grossfeld, defend-
ing high bar titlist, John Davis
on the side horse, and Frank
Hailand, tumbling.
Tough Hawkeyes

to be an annoying group to Penn
"We're outmanned by the other
eastern schools, but I think the
team can do better against Big
Ten teams than our finish in
Iowa City," noted Coach Newt
Pacing the Wolverines in this
effort will be Ed Cole, Conference
trampoline winner with all-
around performers Jim Hayslett,
Nino Marion, and Wolf Dozauer
providing the majority of Michi-
gan's scoring threat.
'M' Depth
Trampoline men Chuck Clark-
son, Frank Newman and Dick
Kimball plus tumbler Bill Skinner
and Al Stall, a balanced perform-
er, add to Wolverine potential.

are threats from eastern, western
and southern conferences. UCLA
and USC will represent Cali-
fornia's gymnastic power while
Florida State, southern champion
is also in the running, plus Army,
Navy and Pitt from the East.
Cubs, Giants'
Trade Two;

By The Associated Press
The San Francisco Giants yes-
terday traded outfielder Bobby
Thomson to the Chicago Cubs for
Bob Speake, a southpaw outfielder
and first baseman, and an undis-
closed amount of cash.
Thomson's main claim to fame
was his homer which beat the
Dodgers in the 1951 National
League championship playoffs.
The Detroit Tigers were also
active as they bought outfielder
Stan Palys from the Cincinnati
Redlegs for $20,000.
At the same time they sent
catcher Charlie Lau, and pitchers
Don Lee, Charlie Daniel and Harry
Byrd to the minors. Lau, Lee and
Daniel were sent to Charleston
subject to 24-hour recall, while
Byrd was assigned to Birmingham.
