Special to The Daily
DETROIT-Michigan's baseball
team blew a 7-0 lead against
Wayne State University yesterday,
but came fighting back to win a
9-7 decision in 10 innings.
Up until the seventh inning,
Wayne State was held hitless and
scoreless and it looked as if the
Wolverines would shut out the
Tartars again, as, they had Friday.
But in the seventh inning the
Wayne, State batters jumped on
hurler Jim Bradshaw for three
runs to cut the Michigan margin
to four runs.

Wayne State first baseman Walt
Kopke came up to bat in this cru-
cial situation and hit a little pop-
up in front of home plate. As
Michigan catcher Gene Snider
rushed out to catch the fly, Koepke
blocked his path and the ball hit
the ground bouncing into foul ter-
ritory before Snider could get his
hands on it.

Tartars only one run behind.
As Don Houter pitched to the
next batter, Koepke broke for
second base, drawing a throw from
Snider; the Wayne State runner
on third immediately raced forI
home plate. A return throw from
second baseman Bob Kucher to
Snider got to the plate at the

batter out that he faced and the,
potential winning run for Wayne
State died on third base.
Weemhoff Hit by Pitch
In the top of the tenth inning
Weemhoff led off and was hit by
a pitched ball. Ernie Myers and
Kucher made outs in succession
bringing Jim Dickey to the plate.
Dickey, who had gone hitless in
five previous attempts came
through in the clutch as he smash-
ed a long triple over the left-
fielder's head to score Weemhoff.
John Herrnstein followed with a'h
infield single, driving in his fifth
run of the afternoon.
Weemhoff finished his fine relief
performance by getting the Tar-
tars out in order in the last of the{
tenth.

Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS - Indiana, taking
firsts in four events, led 24 col-
leges and track clubs and a host
of unattached athletes in the 16th
annual Ohio Relays at Ohio State
University yesterday.
Michigan favored in the sprint
medley relay and expected to do
well in the two-mile relay and the
440-yd. and 880-yd. relays found
the competition stiffer than antic-
ipated. The Wolverines failed to
take a first in any event, although
assistant track coach Elmer Swan-
son stated, "The boys ran better
today than they did last week
when they were so impressive at
the Quantico meet."
Five records were shattered in
the hotly-contested 20 event meet.
The Hoosiers in leading the at-
tack broke a meet record in the
880-yd. relay and added victories
in the distance medley relay, the
440-yd. relay and the broad jump.
No team points are awarded in
the relays.
Jones Wins for Hurons
Hayes Jones of Eastern Michf-
gan broke the mark he held in the
120-yd. high hurdles, in 13.6 sec-
onds defeating Ohio State's Glen
Davis.
Mark Smith competing for the
Detroit Track Club, established a
new mark in the high jump with a
6'7" leap.. The previous mark of
6'6 and three-eigths inches was
set by Milt Mead of Michigan in
1952.
Ohio State came home on 3:14
to top the mile relay mark and
Doug Kyle, Michigan graduate
student competing unattached,
covered the one and a half mile
run in 6:40.2.
Michigan, favored to take the
sprint medley relay could do no
better than third. Notre Dame's
3:26.2 clocking bettered the Wol-
verines' best by almost two seconds.
Tom Robinson, sensational
Michigan freshman running un-
attached, placed a close second to
Ira Murchison in the 100-yd. dash.
Murchison, Western Michigan's

finished in 9.6.
Other individual standouts for
Michigan were Dave Martin, fin-
ishing third in the mile run, Pete
Stanger who finished behind Jones
and Davis in the 120 high hurdles,
Lou Williams placing fifth in the
broad Jump, Geert Keilstrup tak-
ing third in the one and one-half
mile run and Brendan O'Reilly
with a fifth place tie in the high
jump.

Now that this season has ended
for the Michigan gymnastic squad,
eyes are being cast on the fresh-
man prospects for next year.
The overall outlook is bright,
since only captain Ed Gagnier
and trampolinist Jack Eckle will
be missing next year. But help
will be needed from the freshman
team if the gymnasts hope to
improve on this year's fourth place
finish in the Big Ten meet and
fifth place finish at the NCAA
meet.
Loken Praises Montpetit
Freshman Richard Montpetit,
an all-around gymnast who has
earned Coach Newt Loken's praise,
appears to have the ability to help
the varsity squad the most.
Gagnier, who was injured for
most of the season, has been
tutoring the promising jymnast.
Gagnier said, "If Montpetit de-.
velops to his full potential, he will
be good enough to beat Illlinois'
Abe Grossfeld."
Other freshmen gymnasts who
figure in Coach Loken's plans for
next year are Jim Brown, Stu
Bradley, George Reynolds and
Pete Gottschalk.

HARD RUNNING HALFBACK-Darrell Harper f ights his way over a defensive linebacker in yes-
terday's long scrimmage at Ferry Field. Harper aided Bob Ptacek and Fred Julian in providing a
running attack to supplement the passing of Stan Noskin, John Spidel and Jim Sytek. Fifteen touch-
downs were scored during the afternoon, which m arked the opening scrimmage for the rebuilding
Wolverines.

HOUSTON-Barry MacKay, for-
mer Michigan star, turned back
Bernard Bartzen and Louis Ayala,
Chilean National Champion, de-
feated top-seeded Dick Savitt yes-
terday to enter the championship
finals of the River Oaks Invitation
Tennis Tournament.
MacKay, seeded fourth and
ranked No. 5 nationally, collected
14 service aces while eliminating
Bartzen,. former National Clay
Courts Champion, 6-3, 6-3, 7-5.
Ayala thrilled a crowd of 2,000
withclever backhand placements
in defeating Savitt 6-4, 6-4, 4-6,
6-4.
The doubles team of Billy Tal-
bert of New York and Sammy
Giamalva of Houston upset the
tpp-seeded team of Mervyn Rose
and Warren Woodcock of Aus-
tralia 7-9, 6-2, 7-5. In semifinal
play Maria Bueno, San Paulo,
Brazil won the women's cham-

pionship by defeating Nancy
Richey of Houston, 6-4, 6-2.
Close Overshadows Delany
NEW YORK-Peter Close of St.
John's (N.Y.) overshadowed Olym-
pic Champion Ron Delany in the
Queen-Iona Relays yesterday by
anchoring his team to two vic-
tories.
St. John's, with Close doing some
real hustling, won the four-mile
and the distance medley.
Delany, for a change, was no
ball of fire. He anchored Villanova
to victory in the sprint medley,
but his team lost the mile relay to
Manhattan when he blew a' lead
as third man.
Woodhouse Beats Morrow
ABILENE, Tex.-Bill Woodhouse
of Abilene Christian equalled the
world's records for the 100- and
200-yard dashes today as he sped
the distances in 9.3 and 20.0 in
leading his team to victory in a
triangular meet.
Both were wind-aided and can't
be submitted for records.
In winning the 100, Woodhouse
defeated his teammate, Bobby
Morrow, the Olympic spring cham-
pion, by inches. Morrow didn't run
the 220.
Abilene Christian had 86 points
to win the triangular meet over
North Texas State (39) and Texas
Tech (17).
Jewel's Reward Wins
NEW YORK - Jewel's Reward,
one of the Kentucky Derby favor-
ites, won the $59,500 Wood Me-
morial at Jamaica yesterday. Nou-
reddin was second and Martins
Rullah third in the field of seven
three-year-olds.

By JIM BENAGH
Michigan football coaches had
reasons to smile after viewing yes-
terday's 15-touchdown onslaught
against reserves in a heavy, long
offensive scrimmage before an es-
timated 250 spectators, at Ferry
Field.
"We were more than pleased
with the scrimmage," voiced Head
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan about
the two and one-half hour, pass-
happy practice.
The statement got a quick nod
of approval from Line Coach Jack
Blott, who got sound performances
out of his youngsters.
The chief mentor added, "we
have lots of competition at every
position."
Seven TD Passes
Seven touchdown passes were
thrown during the workout. Stan
Noskin passed for three of them
and John Spidel added another,
pair.
Noskin hit consistently through-
o the day, including four straight
completions from the start of
practice.
Before the defensive reserves
could dig their cleats into the
turf, Noskin had dropped a pass
into right halfback Fred Julian's
hands. Julian quickly picked up a
block from running mate Bob
Ptacek, and coasted into the end
zone.
Moments later, Julian, subbing
for Brad Myers who was ill, was in
the scoring zone again, as his 10-
yd. dash off left tackle ended a
sustained drive.
Groce Stars on Run
Following Julian's example, little
Al Groce sped for a spectacular
65-yd. broken field touchdown and
punched over a two-yard score,
giving him two tallies for the af-
ternoon.
Spidel pegged to freshman, end
Joe Brefeld on a short pass and to
halfback John Batsakes on a long
toss for his touchdowns.
Between Noskin's passes, Ptacek
continued his hard running and

continued to earn Oosterbaan's
praise. Darrell Harper, Ptacek's
understudy at left half, also proved
a strong runner.
Netmen Like
Clay Courts
By AL SINAI
"No tennis court is better than
another," stated Michigan tennis
coach Bill Murphy. "However,
some players prefer certain courts
simply because they play better
on them."
There are four major types of
tennis court construction that a
player may happen to play on
during the course of his career.
Courts are either made of wood,
grass, cement, or clay.
"Fast and Slow"
Of these four, the "fastest" are
wood, cement, and grass courts,
and the "slowest" being the clay
ones. A fast court is one which is
especially adapted to a hard-
hitting player such as the former
Wolverine star, Barry MacKay,
while a slow court favors the con-
sistent, weak-hitting type of net-
man.
"Different courts don't have
much effect on a man's game,"
Murphy said. "A good player will
adjust himself to whatever the
conditions may be.".
Murphy is of the opinion that
the present Michigantennis squad
benefits more from clay courts.
Players like Captain John Harris,
Jon Erickson, and George Korol
are not booming hitters as McKay
was. Their style of play is more
effective on a slow court.
This is especially true in Har-
ris' case as shown by his sixth
place finish on wooden courts in-
doors last year. Outdoors, Harris
was a much improved player on
the comparatively slow clay courts
used by Michigan.
