the big portsider was in trouble
in almost every inning, yet he
managed to pitch his way out most
of the time through the timely
employment of his strikeout ball.
Most of Michigan's offensive
guns were silenced by OSU hurler
Ron Nischwitz, who gave up only
seven hits. Ernie Myers and Ralph
Hutchings took over as team lead-
ers for the day with five hits be-
tween them.
Twice Myers paced the Wol-
verines' attack to within one run
of the Buckeye lead. In the third

singles, sending Bob Sealby, who
had walked, to third.
Bob Kucher then laid down a
perfect squeeze bunt to make the
score 3-2.
And then in the seventh, with
Hutchings and Sealby on base,
via a double and a walk respec-
tively, Myers singled cleanly into
left field.
Hutchings scored on the hit,
but the leftfielder let the ball go
past him letting in Sealby also.
The score stood 5-4 and that was
as close as Michigan could come.
Average Dwindles
Jim Dickey, the league's leading
hitter before yesterday's game,
saw his average go downhill. He
went hitless in two official trips
to the plate, although he did drive
in a run with a sacrifice fly in
the eighth.
There was an unusual amount
of extra-curricular action on the
basepaths, involving both good
and bad base-running. Hampshire
stole second three times in a row,
with Haverkamp also chalking
up one.
Dickey eventually unlimbered
his throwing arm, pegging out two
runners who had larceny in mind.
Game Notes
Still continuing to remain a
puzzle is Herrnstein's hitting, or
rather, the lack of it. He has yet
to get his first Big Ten safety this
season. The Chillicothe, Ohio jun-
ior popped up three consecutive
times to run his hitless string to

Golfers Meet
Purdue, OSU
At Lafayette
Michigan's golf team hopes to
avenge the miseries of last week-
end when it meets Purdue and
Ohio State in a three-way match
today at Lafayette.
Last Saturday the Wolverine
linksmen, averaging 82. strokes
per 18-hole round, were soundly
beaten by Purdue, 29-13, and by
OSU, 27-15, at Columbus.
However, Michigan Coach Bert
Katzenmeyer said at that time
that the team "was not that bad,"
so the Wolverines should be ex-
pected to display better golf today
than last weekend.
Since Purdue downed OSU in
that same meet, the Boilermakers
rate the team favorite on their
own course today.
Katzenmeyer, who delayed re-
vealing his selections for today,
was expected to go with the same
lineup used last weekend.

Michigan Track Team Hosts
Western, Marquette Today

Michigan hosts Marquette and
Western Michigan this afternoon
in the first and only triangular
track meet at Ferry Field this
Coach Don Canham was quick
with a word of warning to his
varsity performers, who will be
out in full strength at the 1:30
p.m. run-off time: "The meet
will be a tough one. We need
every point we can get."
Western Michigan and Mar-
quette will be ably represented by
some excellent individual per-
formers in the ten-event program.
Murchison Stars
The chief attraction among the
visitors is Western Michigan's Ira
Murchison, co-holder of the world
mark for the 100 meters at :10.1.
The stubby 5'4" speedster has
probably tied the world marks for
dash events, particularly the 60-
yd. dash, more than any other
man living.
He was also an Olympic gold
medal winner with the American
400-meter Olympic team, which
smashed all records.
Ed Avery is another top sprint
man for the Broncos, running on
Murchison's heels in the 100, in
:09.7, and shading Murchison in
the 220.
Runs 4:15 Mile

ern's Art Eversole is capable of a

with Michigan's Geert Keilstrup,
who placed second in last week's
Penn Relays. Marquette's Mike
Senglaub is another strong con-
tender in this event.
The pride of Marquette's team,
Ed Hoyle, can climb 14'8" in the
pole vault. Wolverine star Mamon
Gibson tied for last week in the
Relays with a 14'4" vault.
Western's best, Jerry Bechener,
shows a creditable 13'6" mark.
Western also boasts a number
of strong middle distance per-
formers, along with Roger Shep-
ler in the broad Jump, and Ed
Henley in the high hurdles.
Freshmen to Run
Two special freshman events
will also be run in today's meet
in the 880 and 220-yd. runs. Fred
Montour, who won the 880 in last
week's Open Meet here, is the fea-
tured freshman runner in this
Tony Seth, another of the
freshman standouts, is also en-
tered in this longer run. Seth won
the 600-yd. run at last week's
Open Meet.
Tom Robinson, only a yearling
and already regarded as the best
dash man in Wolverine history,
will be in the 220 along with Dick
Cephas. Robinson kicked his way
to a :09.6 100 at the Ohio Relays
two weeks ago and followed with
a 10.0 last week though bucking
a strong headwind.



Major League Standings

Despite a gloomy weather fore-
cast, 100,000 racing enthusiasts
are expected to turn out at the
84th running of racing's greatest
spectacle, the Kentucky Derby,
today at Louisville.
Great interest has been gener-
ated in this race, because of the
fact that for the first time Calu-
met Farm's favored Tim Tam and
Mrs. Elizabeth Arden Graham's
Jewel's Reward will meet the
West Coast sensation and senti-
mental favorite, Silky Sullivan.
Starts Slow
In the last two months Silky
Sullivan has been the talk of the
racing world. A strong bay colt,
Silky Sullivan has the habit of
starting extremely slow. In some
races he has been as far back as
35 lengths after a half mile.
However, he has made up for
this with a blinding burst of speed
in the stretch to win most of Cali-
fornia's important three-year-old
Silky Sullivan's chief drawback
is that most of his races have

been run against weaker opposi-
tion than he will meet today.
Tim Tam, on the other hand,
has been the top three-year-old in
the East. So far this year, he has
won the Flamingo Stakes, Flori-
da Derby, Everglades Stakes, and
Derby Trial.
Tim Tam usually has Bill Har-
tack, the nation's leading rider,
as his jockey, but Hartack suf-
fered a broken leg last Saturday.
His substitute, highly capable
Ismael Valenzuela, will ride Tim
Tam today, while Willie Shoe-
maker will ride Silky Sullivan and
Eddie Arcaro, winner of five Der-
bies, will be up on Jewel's Reward.
Jewel's Reward, who has been
consistently behind Tim Tam, fin-
ished in front of him in the Fla-
mingo, only to be disqualified.
Others in the field of 14 are
Gone Fishin', Martins Rullah,
Warren G., Lincoln Road, Red Hot
Pistol, A Dragon Killer, Benedicto,
Flamingo, Noureddin, and Chance
It Tony.
The race will be nationally tele-
vised over CBS-TV at 4:15 p.m.

Netters Op
Michigan's defending NCAA
and Big Ten champion tennis
squad opens its bid to repeatas
Western Conference titlists today
as it faces the Buckeyes from
Ohio State at Columbus.
In preseason matches, the Wol-
verines have maintained their un-
beaten streak in dual competition
and will be after consecutive win
number 47 in a streak that ex-
tends back to 1954.
Coach Bill Murphy said, "Ohio
State is not too strong this season
and we should not have much
trouble in defeating them. I will
go along with the lineup that has
been victorious this spring.

en Big Ten Season at OSU Today


"For the singles matches, Jon
Erickson will play the number one
position, with Captain John Har-
ris in the number two slot. The
other singles openings will be
filled by Bob Sassone, George
Korol, Frank :Fulton, and Bill
Vogt, in that order."
Dropped from Doubles
The doubles teams will be com-
posed of Erickson and Harris,
Fulton and Vogt, and Korol and
John Wiley. "Sassone has been
dropped from the doubles compe-
tition because I feel that Wiley
will perform better in that capa-
city," Murphy said.
When questioned about the rest

of the Big Ten teams, Murphy re-
replied, "Illinois is the strongest
team in the conference bar none,
and should win the title. Iowa will
be its toughest opposition, and.
Northwestern and our squad
should fight for the third posi-
Michigan faces Illinois this Fri-
day, so it will not be long before
Murphy's predictions are tested.
Irish Could Win
The Wolverines also face the
possibility of dropping a match
before they face the Illini. On
Monday the squad travels to
South Bend to meet a tough Notre

Dame team which is favored to
whip the 'M' netters.
Murphy Pessimistic
Murphy stated rather pessimis-
tically, "Notre Dame has a tope-
flight squad, led by Maxwell
Brown, 17th ranked player in the
nation. Their whole team is back
from last year, and they are un-
defeated so far this year."
The winner of this match will
also be crowned champion of the
Cherry Blossom Festival, which
was held at Washington, D. C.
during spring vacation. The, title
was not decided because the
match was rained out on the
scheduled date.
