Cooley House won the Residence
Hall "A" softball championship
in a thrilling extra-inning con-
test at Wines Field yesterday, 9-8.
In edging Reeves House, Cooley
copped its sixth I-M crown of the
year and added to its winning to-
tal in all intramural sports. The
game itself was hard fought and
a credit to both teams.
Cooley took an early one run
lead in the first inning, but then
quickly lost it as Walt Gerus
banged a home run for Reeves to
knot the score. This act was re-
peated once more as Cooley again
picked up one tally in the bottom
of the second only to see it fade
with Jim Weber's solo blast in
the top of the third.
Both Score in Fourth
In the fourth frame, both teams
scored two runs. Rich Andersen's
hit, Connie Sousanis' double, and
an error by the left fielder pro.=
duced the two Reeves' tallies.
Cooley counted on a bloop double
by Art Gnewuch with Dean Metz-
xer on base. Eric Golke also
crossed the plate as a result of
a wild pitch.
Reeves took the lead once more
with a single run in the top of the
fifth, but Cooley countered with-
two in the last of the inning on
hits by Bill Lytle, John Dulek,
and Golke. Reeves then tied the
score for the fourth time with a
run on Ted Redding's single and
Rich Robin's double.

CHOICE OF SEVEN COLORS IN MOST SIZES

Weber came in as a reliefer in
the bottom of the sixth and held
Cooley scoreless; Dave Kratze did
likewise for Cooley in the top of
the seventh. In the bottom of the
seventh, Cooley put two men on
base, but Weber struck out the
next two hitters to send the game
into extra innings.
Cooley Wins in Eighth
Reeves scored twice in the top
of the eighth on triples by Weber,
Redding and a sacrifice fly by Jim
Harder. This was not enough,
however, as Cooley came up with
three scores. A triple by Golke, an
infield out, two walks; a single by
Kim Greene, and errors by the
second baseman and right fielder,
who threw wildly to the plate in
attempting to nab the runner who
had tagged up at third, gave
Cooley the victory and the title.
Cooley also captured the "B"
first place championship defeat-
ing Michigan House, 17-5. The
winners iced the game with nine
runs in the bottom of the fourth.
Rich Saputo hit a two-run home
run and Roger Norris laced three
doubles for the winners.
Phi Sigs Take 'B' Title
Phi Sigma Delta took the first
place championship in "B" fra-
ternity softball by whipping Phi
Delta Theta, 8-5. Phi Sig was led
by the hitting of third baseman
Paul Cohn, who hit a Texas league
homer and a triple. Sandy Miller,
showing his usual deceptive form,
hurled the team to the win, as he
had all year.
In other "A" games, Gomberg
crushed Chicago, 22-6 for the sec-
ond place title; Michigan won
over Lloyd, 6-4 for the third place
crown; Wenley topped Hinsdale,
8-6 in the fourth position finals;
and Winchell defeated Kelsey,
19-10, for the fifth place victory.
Anderson edged Gomberg, 6-5,
in the second place "B" finals on
a grand slam home run by Frank
Mitchell. Kelsey beat Strauss, 5-4,
for third place honors.

Ray Fisher
Gives Views
Of Season
By TOM WITECKI
Looking over his 38th and final
season as Michigan's baseball
coach, Ray Fisher said, "If our
pitching had been what it should
have been, we would have been
right up there."
Michigan's pitching, poor all
season, was a contributing factor
to the Wolverines' dismal 7-8 sea-
son record, good enough for only
a sixth place tie in the Big Ten
standings.
Fisher commented, "The loss of
Gene Snider to an eligibility rul-
ing and the sore arm of Gordon
Rinckey who was a top pitching
prospect hurt our chances con-
siderably."
17 Win Letters
As he handed out 17 letters, 12
to players who will probably be
back next year, Fisher speculated,
"Next year's team should be a
good one with seven sophomores
returning and a good crop of
freshmen hurlers and catchers
joining the varsity."
Playing their last season for the
Maize and Blue were outfielders
Bob Sealby, Neil McDonald and
Bob McFee, pitcher Dean Fink-
beiner and shortstop Ernie Myers.
Myers and Sealby who were regu-
lar starters will be missed the
most.
Players who will be back for
one more season next spring in-
clude John Herrnstein, Bob Sta-
brylla, George Weemhoff and
next year's captain-elect Ralph
Hutchings.

CAPTAIN-ELECT-Ralph Hutchings, whose spectacular catches
in left field have amazed Ferry Field fans this year, was elected

Michigan's Army ROTC rifle
team completed a near perfect
season last weekend as they won
the Inter-Service ROTC Rifle
League tournament at. East Lan-
sing.
The team rolled up a 1895 point
total, well over their season aver-
age of 1881, to run away with the
title. Leading the Army team was
Tom Athanas who scored 387
points to win the individual tro-
phy. Teammate Dick White fin-
ished fourth with 380 points.
The Michigan AFROTC squad
sparked by the third place finish

of Bob Fear and the fifth place
finish of Phil Horn claimed sixth
in the tournament.
The Michigan Army team had
already won the season title with
an 8-1 record. Great balance was
the secret to the team's first place
finish in the regular season. The
team had four of the season's
overall leaders.
Athanas 'took second, William
Woodruff third, Keith Johnson
fifth, and Paul Gogulski sixth.
Fear of the. AFROTC ended up
fourth in the overall standings.

Hutchings, who carries a re-
spectable batting average, about
.290, is known around Ferry Field
for his spectacular home-run rob-
bing catches.
Catcher Jim Dickey, one of the
top hitters on the squad this year,
may return for one more season.
Members of this year's. bumper
crop of sophomores are Jack
Mogk, Dave Brown, Bill Roman,
Bob Kucher, Gene Struczewski, Al
Koch and Nick Liakonis.
Fisher said, "A year's, experi-
ences should have helped pitchers
Liakonis and Koch. Together with
Rinckey they could very well form
the nucleus of a good staff for
next year."
Three Hurlers Look Good
Three hurlers have caught the
eye of freshman coach Matt Pat-
anelli. Two transfer students who
are righthanders, Denny McGinn
and Jim Hale have looked well
this spring. In a game against the
varsity, McGinn pitched five
scoreless innings allowing only
two hits. A southpaw Bob Mar-
cereau has looked impressive.

By The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA-The Philadel-
phia Eagles yesterday acquired
quarterback Norman Van Brocklin
from the Los Angeles Rams for
two first string players and their
No. 1 choice in next year's
National Football League player
draft.
Vince McNally, Eagles' general
manager, announced he had trad-
ed Buck Lansford, star offensive
tackle and guard; Jimmy Harris, a
defense back, and the future draft
choice in an effort to plug the
weakest link in the club's offensive
lineup--quarterback.
The Rams had Van Brocklin on
the trading block because of the
quarterback's announcement he'
would not play with the club as
long as Sid Gillman was head
coach. Van Brocklin said he would
remain at his business in Portland,
Ore., rather than play under Gill-
man.

Brown Protests to Giles'
PITTSBURGH - General Man-
ager Joe L. Brown of Pittsburgh
Monday fired a verbal protest to
Warren Giles yesterday over what
he termed a "disgraceful, uncalled
for brawl" with the San Francisco
Giants in the .first game of Sun-
day's doubleheader at Forbes Field.
Brown said he suggested to the
National League president that
Giles give umpires the authority
to eject any pitcher from a game
who deliberately throws at a bat-
ter.
Brown said he also recommend-
ed that any player who uses any
other weapon but his fist be eject-
ed, automatically suspended and
fined.
Pledges To Stay in LA
LOS ANGELES-President Wal-
ter F. O'Mally of the Los Angeles
Dodgers yesterday promised he,
will fight to keep the club in Los
Angeles.
O'Malley told a press conference:
"Baseball has been hurt by this
purely local issue."
He was referring to the fight
over Chavez Ravine, which the
city council agreed to turn over to

the Dodgers for a ball park in' a
deal that goes before the voters
for approval June 3.
"The National Leagues does
have the right to move the fran-
chise but I shall fight any such
attempt with all my strength. The
players and our staff want to stay
in Los Angeles. We like the loca-
tion, weather, the fans and the
attendance records. We plan to be
in Los Angeles permanently. I
pledge myself to try to keep major
league baseball here."
