OMMEMORATION SATURDAY:
Clrk Centennial,

By BUZ STEINBERG
Special to The Daily
KALAMAZOO - Michigan net-
men defeated Western Michigan
yesterday afternoon, 7-2, in what
would appear to be a routine
match.
A number of unsuspected oc-
currences arose, however.
The most prominent happen-
ing, one that may possibly handi-
cap the Wolverines, was the back
injury incurred by number one
man, Jon Erickson. Momentarily,
the injury was so severe that play
of the doubles match in which he
was competing had to be halted.
As a result, Michigan defaulted a
match in which they had lost one
set, 4-6, and were tied in the sec-
ond set, 8-8.
Coach Bill Murphy said that
the injury appears to be only tem-
porary, , and if no complications
arise, Erickson should be ready to
r e t a i n his number-one spot
against Northwestern this Friday.
Yet, if anything is wrong with
Erickson, Murphy will find him-
self and the team with a great
loss. This could prove disastrous
since the netmen are now entering
the crucial point of the season
against Conference teams.
First Defeat
Another surprise,- at least to
Wolverine fans, would be the fact

that Erickson suffered in singles
competition his first defeat this
year at the hands of the Broncos'
top man, John Cook. The "big
gun" went down two sets in a row,
each by the identical score, 6-3.
The spoiler, Cook, is another of
the more prominent tennis play-
ers in the Middle West. He was
Mid-American Conference singles
titlist as a sophomore and won
himself a berth in the NCAA meet
last June. He reached the same
level as Erickson in this tourney.
On the brighter side, was the
continued sparkling play of Gerry
Dubie and also of the untouted
sophomore, Mike Gordon. Dubie
once again is on the winning trail
after dropping his first match for
the "Blue" against Notre Dame
two days ago.
Dubie defeated Douglas Poort

Pass defense was stressed yes-
terday as Michigan's spring foot-
ball drills entered their final
stages.
The 20 days of spring practice
allotted by the NCAA will come to
a close Saturday in the annual
Blue-White intrasquad game to
be played at Michigan Stadium.
The game will start at 2 p. m. in
the recently resodded Stadium.
There will be no admission charge.
Leaky pass defense contributed
a large share to the Wolverines'
collapse last fall, and head Coach
Bump Elliott and his staff are
working desperately to plug this
gap, which still showed itself to
be present in last " Saturday's
scrimmage.
"Pass defense is the most fas-
cinating part of the game from
the coach's angle, but it is also
the hardest to teach," comment-
ed Elliott as he watched his bulky
squad go through their defensive
maneuvers.
"Hard charging linemen who
will rush the passer are the great-
est asset to a team's pass de-
fense," Elliott continued, "as any
good pass receiver can elude his
defensive man if given enough
time." '

"A team- can overcome hard
charging linemen somewhat by
using roll-out passes. However,
last year's Illinois game, in which
our pass defense looked worst, we
were beaten on straight drop back
passes, on which we gave the
quarterback too much time to
sight his target," mentioned El-
liott.
First Opportunity
Saturday will give Wolverine
fans their first opportunity to see
the Winged-T offense for the first
time under actual game condi-
tions.
Elliott, who worked with this
system when he was a member of
the Iowa coaching staff, was quick
to install it at Michigan when he
took over from Bennie Ooster-
baan.
Between halves of Saturday's
game, public announcement of the
winner of the Meyer W. Morton
Trophy will be announced.
This award is given annually to
the football player who shows the
greatest development and most
promise as a result of spring prac-
tice.
The award is usually given to a
freshman who will begin his var-
sity career in the fall. Center Dick
Syring was the recipient of the
award last year.
