COACHES APPLAUD MICHIGAN OPEN:
'M' Freshmen Star as 250 Thinclads Compete
By STEVE ROGERS
Last Saturday's twin killing of
Michigan State put Michigan's
baseball team right in the heart
of the Big Ten title race.
At the end of the first week of
Big Ten competition, the Wolver-
ines, with a 2-1 record, find them-
selves tied with Ohio State for
third place. Both teams trail pace-
setters Purdue and Indiana by one
- Michigan's only loss was suf-
fered at the hands of Michigan
State at East Lansing last Friday.
The Spartans whipped .the Wol-
verines in their Big Ten opener
The three game weekend series
with Michigan State may have
solved coach Ray Fisher's biggest
problem. Before the start of the
Spartan series, Fisher did not
know whether he had any reliable
pitchers on his mound crew.
Fisher, however, now feels he
may have three dependable start-
ers in Nick Liakonis, John Herrn-
stein, and Al Koch. Each of these
hurlers went the round against
Liakonis allowed the Spartans
four runs on eight hits in the
Wolverine loss last Friday. The
decision probably would have
been reversed for the Detroit
southpaw if he had received a
little hitting support from his
Herrnstein gave up only six
scattered hits in posting his win
in Saturday's opener. The power-
ful lefthander, who lost his shut-
out when Frank Palamara hom-
ered for State in the ninth, struck
out six and walked only three.
The most pleasing performance,
however, was that turned in by
sophomore Al Koch in the night-
cap of the twin bill. Koch, who
limited State to one run on only
four hits, displayed excellent con-
trol as he walked but one Spartan
while fanning six.
Koch, like Herrnstein, lost his
bid for a shutout in the final inn-
ing of the contest. A single by
Dick Golden following a hit bats-
man and Koch's only free pass
produced the Spartan's lone run
of the game.
Along with these pitchers, Fish-
er also plans to see action from
Southpaws Bob Sealby, George
Weemhoff, and Dean Finkbeiner,
as he prepares his team for their
next game, a home affair with
Ohio State this Friday.
Matt Patanelli, end coach and
assistant baseball coach at Michi-
gan, underwent surgery this morn-
ing at University Hospital.
Ray Fisher, baseball coach, an-
nounced that Jim Clark, who is a
grad student in physical educa-
tion and a star pitcher on last
yera's ball team, will handle Pata-
nelli's job during his absence.
Mrs. Patanelli, reached at home,
said that her husband was having
a growth on his intestine removed,
which doctors feared might de-
velop into cancer if not cared for.
She expected him to remain in
the hospital for 10 days.
Hospital officials as well as
Patanelli refused to release any
information on his condition. i

"Coaches and competitors alike
enjoyed participating in the
meet," stated assistant track
coach Elmer Swanson in reference
to the Michigan Open Track Meet
held Saturday at Ferry Field, "so
we consider it a big success."
Eight colleges represented by
250 athletes took part in what is
hoped will be the mid-west's an-
nual track carnival.
"We expect to have close to 600
entries next year," Swanson con-
tinued, "and intend to award
prizes to the winners to sharpen
competition. Of course, the Mich-
igan Meet was never intended to
be the mid-west's answer to the
Penn Relays but it rather a
"homey" meet for those athletes
whose times don't rate considera-
tion in the top flight competition
Considering the weather condi-
tions, though, the times recorded
Saturday were excellent."
Eeles Landstrom, ineligible this
semester, highlighted the after-
noon with a record breaking
14'41/" pole vault. The former
Ferry Field record set in 1956 at
14'3" was also held by Landstrom.
The freshmen, showed them-
selves to be the best frosh team
ever to represent Michigan.
Tony Seth, the yearling from
the British Guianas, led the way
in setting a Ferry Field record in
the 600-yd. run with a 1:16 clock-
Freshman Tom Robinson, buck-
ing a strong head wind, neverthe-
less turned in a fast 10.0 for the
100-yd. dash, and his 22.5 for the
220-yd. dash marked him a double
winner. Another freshman, Dick
Cephas followed closely behind
Robinson in the 100 and finished
second with a 10.4 in the 220-yd.
Dave Martin, a yearling with
vast potential, finished the two-
mile run in 9:36.6 behind Michi-
gan grad., Doug Kyle's sizzling
Les Bird, straining in his final
broad jump attempt hit the
23'10%" mark and turned in the
fourth freshman win.
Pete Stanger, though failing to
qualify at the Penn. Relays, re-
turned home and placed second
to Paul Jones of Eastern Michi-
gan in the 120-yd. low hurdles.
Jones, no relation to East
Michigan's great Hayes Jones v

Members of the Detroit Tr
Club were also impressive, as t

speedy foursome of Jim Bit

Larry Murray was elected cap-
tain of the Michigan wrestling
team for the 1958-59 season it
was a n n o u n ce d yesterday by
wrestling coach Cliff Keen.
Murray, a Junior who has
earned two grappling letters in
Michigan uniform, was one of thej
most outstanding team members
during the dual-meet season this
last year, but failed to score in
the Big Ten Meet.
Keen states that he will be al-
most "wholly dependent on this
year's freshman squad come next
winter." Graduating seniors Max
Pearson and Jack Marchel1lo
scored all but two of the team's
28 points in the Big Ten finals.
Both slugging and pitching duels
were the story of yesterday's games

Two games were played in the
'A' fraternity league with Phi

pa Tau, 3-2, and Tau Kappa Ep-
silon beating Psi Upsilon, 12-0.
Don Kowalski knocked in two
runs as Phi Kappa Sigma scored
all three of their runs in the first
inning, then hung on the rest of
the way to win.
Tau Kappa Epsilon garnered
only six hits while scoring their
12 runs with Psi U's poor fielding
being responsible. Psi U's hitting
was even worse as Doug Lootens
of Tau Kappa Epsilon allowed
them but one hit. In one stretch,
Lootens retired 18 men in a row.
After trailing 2-1 in the early
innings, Chicago House came back
to defeat Lloyd in 'A' competition,

In 'B' competition, Anderson
defeated a stubborn, hard-fight-
ing Scott team, 15-14. Frank Mit-

"The closest we came to losing
during our string was a 5-4 tri-
umph over Western Michigan a
couple of years ago," said Wolver-
ine tennis coach Bill Murphy,
while speaking of the Wolverine's
great record of 45 consecutive
"However, you have to consi-
der that we never ran up against
the good California teams while
compilingnour string," he added.
Michigan's run of victories
started in 1954 as it won its last
six matches, continued in 1955,
1956, 1957 with 37 straight wins,
and has remained intact thus far
this season with the Wolverines
winning their first two matches.
Coaching the Wolverine team
since 1949, Murphy has compiled
an amazing overall record of
87-11. However, he thinks that
their streak will be ended this
"We definitely are a dark horse
this year, behind Illinois, Iowa,
and Northwestern," he stated.
Murphy, himself, was a tennis
and basketball star at Tilden
Technical High School in Chica-
go. His phenomenal coaching suc-
cess includes two unbeaten years
at Chicago high schools.
He graduated from the Univer-
sity of Chicago with a B.A. in
Economics, and also as a full-
fledged tennis star. The Chicago
team, led by Murphy, won Big Ten
Championships in 1937, 1938, and
Among his many titles, Murphy
was 1939 Illinois State Champion
320 South State
Tennis Associations ranked him
first in 1938 and 1939.y .... .
From 1941-45, Murphy served
with the Navy, seeing action in
the Iwo Jima and Okinawa cam-
"During this time I never
touched a racket," said Murphy.
"When I got out I was undecided
whether to remain in tennis." .
However, after a few years with
United Air Lines, and Krim-Co
Corporation of Chicago, Murphy
decided to return to tennis.
"I've never regretted it," Mur-
phy is quick to say. "I especially
like college coaching because most
fellows up here don't need radical
changesuin their game, only prac-
tice and more practice."
