Wolverines seek
By PHIL BROWN -
Sports Editor
Three of Michigan's four
spring sports teams are busy ,
chasing down Big Ten titles this I
weekend, and one, the sensational
Wolverine tennis squad, has al-
ready begun its quest in style.
Despite unusual cold and the
threat of tornadoes in the area,
the netters have taken well to the N
climate of Iowa City.a
Already leading all other con-
ference teams by 24 championship
points, the Michigan contingent tance mE
won ten of 11 matches yesterday. outdoors.

FRED LABOUR,
edley relays are added
an could be expected to
gh in any of these (the
e quartet was second in
relay indoors), but will
count on numerous dou-
o with less proven run-
core in all.

After sustaining a frustrating
loss to Michigan State at the
season's outset, the Wolverines
have maintained a perfect record.
They went on to win the pres-
tigious Alma Invitational and to
down the Spartans in a second
ddal meet before winning a sea-
son-ending pair of tournaments.
The Wolverines wrapped up
their regular schedule with two
major victories in the last two
weeks. The team took titles in
both the Northern Collegiate and
Spartan Invitational tourneys.
Michigan's greatest opposition
for the Big Ten crown is expected
to come from Indiana, although
the Wolverines edged the Hoosiers
in the Spartan Invitational.
BASEBALL
After dropping from first to.
fourth in the Big Ten baseball
race last week, the Michigan dia-
mond men will take on Illinois
and Purdue in a pair of double-
headers this weekend.
The Wolverines, after losing
three in a row in Big Ten compe-
tition, came back Tuesday to re-
venge Western Michigan Univer-
sity, 8-3, for a loss incurred ear-
lier in the season.
Illinois is the real threat in the
weekend series. Trailing Michigan
by only one game in the Big Ten
scramble. Illinois "has seen }mean-
ingful victories over tough teams,"
according to Assistant Coach Dick
Honig.
Honig explains the Wolverine's
BIG TEN STANDINGS

position. "The Michigan team is
not at all out of the race. But we
need these wins to have a valid
shot at the championship. Since
we face two of the weaker teams
in the league this weekend, it is
our chance to comeback."
Scheduled to start the pitching
honors for today's games are Jack
Hurley (1-3) and Steve Evans (3-
4). Dave Renkiewicz (4-5) and
Rod Scott (2-0) will open up
against Illinois tomorrow.
Featured to lead Michigan slug-
ging are Elliott Maddox, Captain
Doug Nelson, and Jim Hosler, all
batting over .375 in overall per-
formance.
Michigan leads Big Ten fielding
with .947, while Wisconsin is tops
in team batting with 296 and
slugging with .418

TRACK
The Michigan track squad
arrived in the warmer surround-
ings of Minneapolis yesterday to
rest up for today's start of the
Big Ten outdoor championships.
Preliminary action will take
place this afternoon in most
events, with final competition this
evening in the long jump and the
discus.
The Wolverine thinclads go in-

run indoors. Among these are the
discus and the triple jump.
Wolverine Bob Thomas is the
defending discus champ, while at
least two Michigan men are ap-
proaching the 50-foot mark in the
triple jump.
A mixed blessing for the Wol-
verines may be the number ofj
relay races held in the outdoor
meet. Only the mile relay was
run indoors, while the 440, 880,
two-mile, sprint medley, and dis-

±e wolverines took points in
13 of 14 events staged indoors, yet
managed only two firsts-cap-
tain Alex McDonald captured the1
660 crown and Gary Knickerbock-
er won the high jump.
With the squad notably weak
in the shot put and pole vault,
the Wolverine team will have to
pick up points in the triple, long
and high jumps. And this is defi-
nitely possible,
JUMPERS BEST
With Warren Bechard and
Carl Flowers, Michigan probably
has the best pair of triple jumpers
in the conference.
The same may be true in the
high jump, where Knickerbocker
is joined by Rick Hunt and
Clarence Martin, both of whom
have won the outdoor title in the
past.
Ira Russell, who has improved
steadily to record the best dis-
tance in the conference for the
long jump this season, might very
easily win his specialty.

clocking in the high hurdles, to
tie him with MSU's Charles Pol-
lard and Wisconsin's Mike Butler
in the favorite's position.
The sprints will be well cov-
ered, with both George Hoey and
Sol Espie representing the team
in the 100, and Leon Grundstein
going in the 220.x
BIG DIFFERENCE
And distance ace Jim Dolan
must finish high in the three-mile
run. A win here could make a big
difference when the final stand-
ings are calculated.
The rest of the meet will depend
largely on the way Martin de-
cides to distribute his talent in
the middle-distance and relay
events.
With a half dozen fine half-
milers and at least three capable
of turning in 4:15 miles, the ulti-
mate Michigan push could come
in these events.
GOLF
Also holding the inside track
for a conference team title is the'
Michigan golf squad. The links-
men travel to Bloomington this
weekend for the Big Ten meet
that determines the champion-
ship.
Captain John Schroeder has led
the squad through one of its best
seasons ever, with Rocky Pozza
and Rod Sumpter helping provide
the fireworks.

He comes from a rugged American
background. And he's just come back
from where it's lively-London!
Good thing. Because all this in-
spired him to create the Bounder. Half
Indian moccasin. Half London ankle
boot. The only one of its kind.
He fashioned the Bounder with
the best of both worlds. With top grain
leather from toe to heel to ankle. With
a light flexible Tufsyn sole and hand-
sewn toe. A buckle or twin eyelets. And
smashing colours.
He made the Bounder for relax-
ing in . For stepping out. For whooping
it up. A sundance or moondance. A
jaunt. Or just doing whatever you jolly
well please.
