Special to The Daily
MADISON, Wis. - Michigan's
ninth inning rally fell just short
yesterday as they dropped a 5-4
decision to the Wisconsin Badgers.
The loss was its thir'd in Big
Ten play against four wins, and
lowered the Wolverines from first
place to a third place tie with
Ohio State.
Friday seems to be a bad day
for the team since all three of its
losses have occurred on this jinx
day. On two previous weekends
the Wolverines have come right
back from a Friday defeat to win
a doubleheader on Saturday.
Twin Bill Today
Michigan will have a chance to
continue this unusual pattern to-
day when they meet Northwestern
in a twin bill at Evanston. Coach
Ray Fisher plan's to 'start Bob
bealby and Nick Liakonis against,
the Wildcat duo of Rick Wagner
and Bob Miller.
Trailing 5-3 going into the last
inning of yesterday's game, Mich-
igan scored once on singles by
Dave Brown and John Herrnstein
and an infield out by Neil Mc-
Donald. However, Herrnstein was
left stranded on third with the ty-
Statistics

ing run when Ernie Myers flied
otto deep left field to end the
contest.
Herrnstein, going all the way
on the mound for the Wolverines,
suffered his second loss of the
season. His conference record
stands at 1-2.
The big lefthander wasn't as
fast as usual yesterday, striking
out only one compared to last
week's total of 11 against Ohio
State, but he gave up only seven
hits. Two of the Badgers' five
runs were of the unearned variety.

Herrnstein Hits Homer
At the plate, Herrnstein came
out of a season long slump, get-
ting two hits including a home
run to drive in two runs.
George Schmid, a righthander,
struck out five Wolverines as he
raised his record to 2-1. He also
blasted a bases empty homer to
aid the Badger cause.
The game was a tight affair as
the score was tied on three differ-
ent occasions. Michigan scored
first on a double by Brown, and
a single by Herrnstein. But Wis-
consin immediately tied the score'
in an unusual inning in which
they got four of their seven hits,
yet scoring only once.
Michigan edged out in. front
again when Myers singled and
Sealby doubled. Wisconsin then
took advantage of two Wolverine
errors to tie the score and forge
ahead for the first time in the
game.
In the seventh Herrnstein de-
livered his homer, a 350-ft. blast
over the right field fence, to tie
the score for the third time.
Schmid Hits One
In the bottom half of the inning
Schmid countered with his four
bagger and George Mallett scored
the actual winning run when he
walked, stole second and advanced
on two successive sacrifice flys.
Wiscon~sin, which carried a 2-4
record into the game, played their
best game of the season, said
Badger coach Art Mansfield.

Illinois' invading tennis team
handed Michigan its first Confer-
ence defeat in four years, downing
the Wolverines, 6-3, yesterday,
Michigan lost its last Big Ten
match to Michigan State in May,
1954. However, its 47 dual-meet
winning streak was broken on
Monday in a non-Conference
match with Notre Dame.
Hoping to re-enter the win
Detroit Gets
NL Veteran
Wehmeier
ST. LOUIS (R) - The Detroit
Tigers yesterday announced the
purchase of veteran National
League pitcher Herman Wehmeier
from the St. Louis Cardinals for
approximately $20,000.
The 31-year-old righthander
possesses a 91-108 won-loss record
after 10 seasons with three Na-
tional League teams, Cincinnati,
Philadelphia and the Cardinals.
Wehmeier posted a 10-7 record
last year with St. Louis, but was
used sparingly this spring. In the
three games which he started he
was hit hard, compiling a 13.50
earned run average and being tag-
ged with one loss against no vic-
tories.
In acquiring Wehmeier, the
Tigers hope to bolster a sagging
pitching staff which has won only.
three of its last 12 games.
To make room for him, Detroit
optioned Mickey McDermott, also
a veteran pitcher with 10 seasons
in the majors behind him.
The Tigers had acquired McDer-
mott, a lefthander, from Kansas
City in a pre-season trade but had
used him 'only as a pinch-hitter
this spring.
Big Ten Baseball

column today, the netmen will
host Wisconsin at 2:30 p.m.on the
I-M courts.
Captain John Harris, Frank
Fulton and the doubles team of
George Korol and John Wiley
registered the only wins . for
Michigan.
Harris Surprises
Surprising t3 e Illini's number
two man ,Harris bombarded Al
Holtman in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1.
The Michigan star displayed
steady play, prompting the Illini
assistant coach, John Greenleaf,
to note, "I doubt that he has hit
three balls outside the line all aft-
ernoon.
In the number five match, Ful-
ton came back after losing his
first set to whip Illinois' George
Gilmore, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2. Eyeing the
improving tennis player, Coach
Bill Murphy commented, "Ful-
ton's game today was especially
sound because of his consistent
performance."
The lone win in doubles play
came with heavy work by Korol
and Wiley who finally dropped
the Illinois duo, 10-8, in the first
set, and then worked quickly, tak-
ing the second, 6-2.
Noble Whips Erickson
Illinois' top man made short
work of Michigan's Jon Erickson
with his ability to pinpoint his
shots all over the court. Allowing
Erickson only three games in two
sets, Carl Noble won his match,
6-1, 6-2.
Biggest disappointment of the
afternoon was Bob. Sassone's loss
to Illinois' Bob Breckenridge, 0-6,
6-4, 6-4. After shutting out his
opponent in the first set and hold-
ing a 4-0 advantage in the second,
Sassone lost both his drive and ac-
curacy, dropping the next two
sets.
Important in this upset was the
performance by the Illini's Breck-
enridge.who settled down after an
erratic first set and placed his
shots consistently within the base
lines.
Bill Vogt's loss to Joe Epkins
in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2, added
to Illini domination in singles. The
doubles team of Harris and Erick-
son stood up under the barrage of
Noble and Erickson for one set
but eventually lost, 8-6, 4-6, 6-0.

Michigan's golf team will make
its last home appearance of the
season today when it meets Ohio
State and Purdue in a 36-hole
three-way match at the Michigan
Course.
The first 18-hole round begins
at 8 a.m. today and the afternoon
round starts at 1 p.m.
The Wolverine linksmen hope
that the home-course advantage
will help change their fortunes
against the Buckeyes and Boiler-
makers. In triangular matches
earlier this season, Michigan was
trounced by both teams.
Beaten By OST, Purdue
Ohio State and Purdue clubbed;
the linksmen by identical 28-8
scores at Lafayette. The week be-
fore the Buckeyes defeated the
Wolverines 27-15, while the Boil-
ermakers downed the Maize and
Blue 27-15 at Columbus.-
Michigan's chances for a double

victory or a split today will de-
pend heavily on the performances
of lettermen Captain Stan Kwasi-
borski, Pat Keefe and Ray Lovell,
who will play the first three po-
sitions.
Dick Bither, ,Larry Markman
and Chuck Blackett will compete
in the fourth, fifth, and sixth po-
sitions. Larry Leach and Dave
Britigan will be Michigan's "extra
men" playing against Purdue.
Today's lineup is essentially the
same one that Katzenmeyer has
used since the Wolverines' last
home appearance April 26.
Six-Man Team
Ohio State is bringing the
standard six-man team to com-
pete in today's match, but Pur-
dlue will have an eight-man squad..
Michigan Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer has compensated for this
by naming a team consisting of
eight men, two of which will com-
pete against Purdue exclusively.

If Spring Drills are any indica-
tion of things to come, one thing
is certain about next year's Michi-
gan team: the light lines which
have been characteristic the last
two years will be replaced by a line
with more weight per man.
This type of line will probably
mean a change of offensive tactics
for Michigan next fall. Light lines
lend themselves to the hit-and-run
type of attack, while heavy lines
usually mean more emphasis will
be placed on ball control and
power. In the past few years Ohio
State has been quite successful
with this technique,
Center a Critical Spot
One of the critical spots in next
year's line will be at center. A
complete turnover in personnel at
this key position has made it the
major problem in the eyes of the
Wolverine coaching staff.
The current number one center
is converted fullback Jim Byers,
who has been a pleasant surprise
so far this spring, but, who has no
previous experience in the line.
A new challenger for the top
spot has emerged in the last two
weeks in the person of Dick Syring,
204-lb. high school All-America
guard from Bay City.
Freshman Coach Wally Weber
said of Syring, "He has shown
great improvement so far this
spring and has definitely made
himself a contender for the start-
ing berth We switched him from
guard to center and he has done
an outstanding job acclimating
himself to the change.

UNI-STRUT

CALL THIS LOCAL NUMBER

"He blocks well and is aggressive
on defense. He is a hard worker
and we expect a lot from him,"
Weber said.
Backing them up at center 'ill
be Bob Wojcik, Gordy Morrow and
Jim Dickey.
Deskins Bolsters Guards
The guards have been bolstered
by the addition of Don Deskins,
240-lb. Marine veteran and All-
Service selection Deskins, 26 years
old, has been suffering from a leg
injury recently, but has already
shown the coaches enough to
merit a starting berth.
At the other guard spot will
be 230-lb. veteran Gerry Marcin-
iak. Backing them up will be Paul
Poulos, Dave Palomaki, Alex Cal-
lahan and Mike Fillichio.

The tackle spots will be handled
by Willie Smith, 240-lb. senior,
and 200-lb. George Genyk. They
will receive help from Jerry Bush-
ong, Bill Stine and Lee Hall.
Last year's starting ends Gary'
Prahst and Walt Johnson will have
the aid of three gigantic fresh-
men: Gary Kane and Joe Bre-
feld, 220-lb.s each, and John Hall-
stead, 210-lbs.
The starting line will average
approximately 220-lbs, while their
substitutes should tip the scales
at 210 apiece. Last year's first-
string line topped the scales at 208,
while their subs weighed in at 211.
The nine-pound difference per
man can make quite a difference
when the going gets tough.

Steve Whittaker was one of
the most phenomenal split
personalities on record. Not
content with a mere I or 2
distinct personalities, Whit-
taker was split 3 ways. His
analyst's greatest problem was
in deciding which of the 3
Steve Whittakers should be
permitted to survive.
Steve Whittaker I was
noisy, rude, and loutish. The
only thing admirable about
him was his Van Heusen walk-
ing shorts which he wore to
each session.
Steve Whittaker II talked
to the analyst while covering
him with a gun. During one
session, as the doctor was

was a total bore. One day,
the analyst noticed that the
label on his sweater read Van
Heusen.
Which of the 3 Whittakers
did the analyst let survive?
The answer is: none of them.
The wise doctor diagnosed that
each of the 3 had only one
redeeming feature-each wore
one Van Heusen leisure wear
garment. So he created a fourth
Steve Whittaker. This last had
the walking shorts of the first,
the shirt of the second, and
the sweater of Whittaker the
third. He was a paragon of
style and common sense, and
has been a useful citizen ever
since.
