THE MICHIGAN DAILY PAGE
'M' Cagers Improving Rapidly
By HENRY GOLDSTEIN
"We quickened up our pace and
attacked earlier," said Michigan
Basketball Coach Dave Strack,
commenting on Saturday night's
game with Drake.
Obviously happy with the over-
all improvement of the team, he
indicated that with a little more
polish, Michigan could have beat-
Strack said that the most plea-
sant surprise of the evening was
the outstanding performance
turned in by 6'7" center Tom Cole.
Cole's stellar play, which in-
cluded nine rebounds and 15
points, was a pleasant surprise.
"Tom rebounded well, worked hard
PERTH, Australia M) - A new
era in tennis dawned yesterday
with Italy, surprise conqueror of
the United States, headed for
Sydney as the first European na-
tion to crash the Davis Cup Chal-
lenge round in two years.
The tennis world was in a state
of shock after the sensational
comeback of Italy's Nicola Piet-
rangeli and Orlando Sirola, who'
after dropping the first two
matches, rallied for a 3-2 triumph
' n the interzone finals over Amer-
Ica's heavily-favored stars Mon-
It marks the first time in 60
years of Davis Cup competition
that Italy has gained a showdown
round of the sport's World Series.
And it is the first shutout for the
Americans since 1936.
Pietrangeli, who had his -heart
cut out in a four and a half hour,
marathon loss to Barry MacKay
in the opening round, redeemed
himself with a clever fighting
exhibition which turned back Earl
(Butch) Buchholz of St. Louis 6-1,
6-2, 6-8, 3-6, 6-4.
Sirola, a placid-smiling giant
from Bologna, then put the crush-
er on MacKay, Apnerica's top ace,
with a demonstration of awesome
serving power 9-7, 6-3, 8-6.
Pietrangell's triumph over Buch-
holz came as no surprise since the
agile Roman Is rated one of the
world's best amateurs. But it was
almost beyond belief that Sirola,
who never has 'won a major title,
could stand, up in a heavyweight
slugging match with the hardhit-
ting MacKay from Dayton, Ohio.
Even after Pietrangeli had level-
led the series at two matches each,
confidence beat strong In the
But American , opes wilted as
the 6 -7" Sirola, playing as calmly
and cooly as If it were a Sunday
picnic, hammered Mackay's skin
on the big scoreboard.
The giant Italian served with
such effectiveness that he never
lost a delivery, and he permitted
MacKay only nite points on ser-
vice In the last two sets.
The match ended on a bizarre
note as MacKay sent two shots
into the net for a double fault,
setting off a wild demonstration
by the Italians and a large num-
ber of supporters in the gallery.
for the ball, and played an ag-
gressive game for us," said Strack.
Strack also had praise for Scott
Maentz who turned in a fine job,
collecting 14 points and 11 re-
bounds. In all, Michigan grabbed
45 rebounds to prake's 37, and
displayed rugged play under both
The coach was very satisfied
with Captain John Tidwell's per-
formance, although the Wolverine
ace managed only 19 points, a
bit below his 25 point plus aver-
age. "He gave us a good game,
playing hard all 40 minutes,"
Strack went on to say.
When asked what were the im-
portant weak spots of the cagers,
Strack said, "Our foul shooting
must improve, and we must work
on avoiding careless errors."'
Although losers in four of five
games, he still expressed his con-
fidence in the team after the
Drake showing. "The experience
the boys are getting is beginning
to pay off," he commented.
Strack had his team playing
a faster game Saturday, much like
the patterns employed in the sec-
ond half of the Pitt game which
Michigan won, 86-70.
"The fact that we ran our pat-
terns quickly and without too
many careless mistakes was a
great help," he said.
Tomorrow night the Wolverines
run into Idaho in a game that
may give Strack a few mixed feel-
ings, for last year he was Idaho's
This, however, could give Mich-
igan somewhat of an advantage in
that Strack will know what to
expect, but the Wolverine men-
tor remains wary.
"The fact that they know how
I operate my team could be a sig-
nificant factor in the final out-
come," he reflected. They've got
good "big men" and should be
tough to bervt.
Looking forward to tomorrow
night's game, Strack said, that
he wil still go with the ten play-
ers he has been using, but as of
yet he habn't decided upon a
As far asthe strategy goes, he
plans to have Michigan play a
"quick, but not reckless" game,

fans that his team is on the way

I GOT IT--Michigan's Scotty Maentz chases the elusive basket-
ball in the Wolverines recent conquest of Pittsburgh. Maentz, who
has been improving rapidly with every game as he gets his bask-
etball legs, is being counted on by Coach Dave Strack to add
strength to the Michigan attack.

There is a growth of legitimate student political
activity. There are also attempts to discredit it.
Was the students' demonstration against the
House Un-American Activities Committee in San
Francisco legitimate? Are the attempts to discredit
it justifiable? Today there are films and publica-
tions representing the Committee's viewpoint, both
abou~t the demonstrations in San Francisco and
about the question of the Committee's violation of
citizens' rights to freedom of speech, press, and
assembly. To date, few have listened to the reasons
for the demonstrations against the Committee, and
to the students' view of what happened.
A fair judgment requires hearing the students'
side as well as that of the Committee. The Com-
mittee continues, and with it the question of the
right and duty of public protest.
The students' side is presented on a record made
of excerpts from recordings of the House Un-
American Activities Committee hearings and dem-
onstrations in San Francisco. The Sounds of Pro-
test is distributed by Slate*; a university political
party concerned with the protection of civil liberties
and civil rights.
