John Herrnstein, the outfielder-
pitcher, appears headed for a big
season. Thus far he is the team's
best batter, power-hitter, and the

leading pitcher. His batting aver-
age is .391 including two home-
runs, but. one washed away by
rain after only two innings of
play. His no-hit shutout of Bradley
was the best mound performance

Same Old Pitch!'

The value of the dollar has
changed more than a little in
the meantime, but the 1911 and
1958 Michigan baseball teams
have had similar sad experi-
ences with the bucks.
Last week, while the Wol-
verine nine was winding up
spring training at Winter Park,
Fla., a thief broke into the
team's locker room and made
off with $700 in cash.
Noting the incident, Norm
Hill of Pontiac, captain and

first baseman of the 1911 squad,
reports that he and his team-
mates ran into the same diffi-
culties on a trip to Ohio Wes-
leyan. The thief didn't leave a
dime that day, either.
The theft was doubly hard
to take for Ray Fisher's crew.
They were losing to Bradley
while they were being robbed.

was little consolation.

on the trip. Herrnstein gave up
only two earned runs in 14 innings
on the mound.
Sophomores are also helping
solidify the team. Dave Brown atj
third base is perhaps the biggest
find. His .370 batting average
ranked right behind Herrnstein.
Brown also knocked out two
doubles and a triple and was sen-
sational around third base.
Sophomore Bill Roman was a
pleasant surprise at first base as
he compiled a .322 average. The
third sophomore in the infield,
Bob Kucher at second base, got
off to a slow start and ended up
with only a .207 average. How-
ever, Kucher collected several of'
his hits in the last two games.
Myers Starts Slow
Ernie Myers, the only veteran
in the infield, had a disappointing
spring trip and ended up with a
.174 average.
The pitching staff included sev-
en sophomores on the 10 man
squad going south with several
pitching good ball. Dean Fink-
beiner had a 1-1 record and gave
up but three earned runs in his,
14 innings on the mound.
Veterans Finkbeiner and Herrn-
stein should furnish the core of the
Michigan pitching staff with
sophomores Nick Liakonis, Jim
Jernigan and Jim Bradshaw being
rated as good prospects.
Another top sophomore prospect,
Gordon Rinckey, came up with a
sore arm after only two innings on
the mound.

Les Canadiens,
Favorites
In Cup Finals
BOSTON -) - The Montreal
Canadiens were back in the role
of heavy favorite to win their
third straight Stanley Cup while
marking time today before resum-
ing the best of seven champion-
ship series with the Boston Bruins.
The odds soared upwards on the
basis of the Canadiens 3-0 victory
which gave them a 2-1 advantage
in games Sunday night at the
Garden. Originally 5-1 favorites,
the odds dipped to 7-5 after the
Bruins split two games in Mon-
treal.
"Remember we have a game to-
day and those Bruins will be just
as tough as they have been," was
Coach Toe Blake's warning to his
National Hockey League charh-
pions.
The players themselves figured
they are over the hump in the se-
ries, but aren't taking lightly the
Bruins, who finished fourth dur-
ing the regular season.

Wolverine
Netters Win
Notch 45th Straight
In Washington Meet
By PAUL BORMAN
Tennis Coach Bill Murphy took
his netters outdoors for the first
time this year last week, and the
results were resounding wins for
the defending NCAA-Champion
Wolverines.
Two victories stretched their
win streak to 45, tops in the na-
tion.
Georgetown and George Wash-
ington were the victims as Mich-
igan advanced into the finals of
the Cherry Blossom Festival Tour-
nament against-Notre Dame, only
to be rained out.
Notre Dame also won its two
matches over the eastern schools.
The two teams will settle for
the title when they meet later in
the season.
Have Easy Time
The Wolverines, who are re-
building after losing five letter-
men through graduation, had an
easy . time. George Washington
was able to win only one match,
losing 8-1, while Georgetown was
shutout 9-0.
Jon Erickson, 6'5" junior from
Kalamazoo led Michigan's attack
from the first singles position.
Captain John Harris played the
second slot while Bob Sassone,
George Korol and Frank Fulton
rounded out the top five.
The sixth singles position was
split between John Wiley and
Wayne Peacock. Wiley played
against Georgetown while Peacock
faced George Washington.
Doubles Squads
Erickson and Harris combined
to form the first doubles team.
Vogt and Fulton were on the sec-
ond team while Peacock and Wiley
concluded the doubles squads.
Michigan's tennis team will
practice and play challenge rounds
until My 1 when it travels to De-
troit to open its season against the
University of Detroit.

Golf Team
,stymied
Rain prevented Michigan's golf
team from playing competitively
during its annual southern trip
last weekend.
The Wolverine golfers were sup-
posed to meet Duke last Thursday
and North Carolina Friday, but
the bad weather forced cancella-
tion of both these matches.
Thus, Michigan was thwarted
for the seventh year in a row in
attempting to win at match on
the southern tour.
But at least this time the golf-
ers did not have to return to Ann
Arbor brooding over their losses.
Wrestlers
Ambrose Wilbanks, 136-lb.,
and Dennis Fitzgerald, 174-1b
of Michigan were eliminated in
the fourth and fifth rounds,
respectively, in the National
AAU Wrestling Championships
held at San Francisco last
week.

Cindermen
Outstanding
~At Qatc
Sprint Relay Team
Sets Meet Record
By AL JONES
Michigan's track team opened
its outdoor season last week on a
far brighter note than it closed
the recent indoor campaign.
On the Big Ten indoor cinder
circle the Wolverines finished a
dismal eighth. But this last week
the 'M' men romped over the field
in a quadrangular meet, and made
themselves known in the larger
Quantico Relays which followed.
Take Nine Firsts
In the four-team contest on
April 7 Coach Don Canham's Wol-
verine thinclads copped nine first
places and shared the honors in
a tenth to score 94% points, com-
pared with second-place Purdue's
47, Penn State's 42%: and host
Quantico Marines' 34.
Hurdler Pete Stanger was Mich-
igan's only double-winner, taking
his section in both the 220-yd. low
and 120-yd. high hurdles. However,
he had plenty of company in the
winners' columns. The Wolverines
dominated the two 100-yd. dash
sections, as Pete Parker and Free-
man Watkins placed first, and Joe
Christie and Lou Williams were
second.
Williams also won with a 21-
101%" leap. Michigan ha'd three
victories in the longer distances,
plus Don Matheson's triumph in
the 220-yd. dash. Earl Deardorff
copped the 880 - yd. run, Dick
Schwartz took the mile run, and
Geert Keilstrup won the two-mile
run.
O'Reilly Tied
The first place that Michigan
shared was in the high Jump,
where 'M' Captain Brenden
O'Reilly and Quantico's Jim Gard-
ner each cleared 6' 3".
In the Marine dorps' Relays on
April 11 and 12, the Wolverines
sprint relay bearn broke the meet
record in the preliminaries, and
again in the finals with a 3:28.2.
Sophomores Star
Three sophomores, Jim Simpson,
Joe Christie and Earl Deardorff,
and one senior, Don Matheson
composed the record breaking
quartet. Deardorff ran the 880-yd.
anchor leg in 1:56.3 to sail tothe
tape with the record.
Michigan also placed second in
the 440-yd. and 880-yd. relays. In
individual events Stanger was
third in the 120-yd. high hurdles.
Dave Martin, an 'M' freshman,
placed second in the mile run, and
fifth in a strong half mile field.
Mamon Gibson tied for third i
the pole vault.

TRANSFER STUDENT

STARS:

IllinC Tied by Spartans
In NCAA 'Gym Tourney

Michigan State revealed Ted
Muzyczko, a transfer student from
Navy Pier, and surprised every-
one by tying Illinois for first
place in the NCAA Gymnastics
meet at East Lansing last week-
end.
Penn State, defending NCAA
Champions slipped to third while
Iowa finished fourth'
Michigan, who had beaten the
Spartans in a dual meet earlier
this year and finished only one-
half point behind their cross-state
rivals in the Big Ten Meet couldn't
compete with Muzyczko and fin-
ished fifth.
Muzyczko, who became eligible
April 1, scored 32 2,points for the
Spartans. His total included a
first on the parallel bars.
Adding steady performances by
Cal Girard, Dick Becker and Stan
Tarshis, the underdogs got the
spurt they needed to tie the heavi-
ly favored Illini.
The Spartan win marked the
first time in history that a Mich-
igan school captured the NCAA
title.
Although the sensational trans-
fer student was a surprise to
viewers of the meet, he couldn't
capture the spotlight from Jlli-
nois' great Abe Grossfeld.
The Olympian, fully recovered
from an injury suffered in the
Big Ten Meet, captured firsts in
the free exercise, high bar and

all-around events. He outscored
Muzyczko by over 10 points.
Michigan's trampoline team ac-
counted for the largestpart of the
Wolverines' point total. Ed Cole
finished third, Dick Kimball tied
for fourth and Chuck Clarkson
finished tenth.
Jim Hayslett, Nino Marion and
Dana Larson also starred for
Michigan. Hayslett finished fifth
in the all-around event while
Marion followed him in sixth po-
sition. Marion also finished tenth
in both the high bar and free ex-
ercise events.
Larson was the Big Ten's only
rope climber to make the finals
and he tied for ninth with a time
of 4.5.
Sailing Team
Wins at Purdue
The Michigan Sailing Club beat
three teams in a regatta held at
Lake Schaeffer near Purdue last
weekend.
Michigan finished with 76
points to handily whip the host
Purdue team by 16 points. Wash-
ington of St. Louis finished in
third with 42 points and 'Wayne
State was last with 39.
The victors won 13 of the 16
races they entered.
