O PLAY MIAMI, PRINCETON:
Netmen Prepare for NU, Big Ten Play

Baseballers Most Unprepared'

U

By JIM TINDALL

ra ,.-

Michigan, a perennial power in
g Ten tennis, starts final prep-
ations for the season this week
th a swing into the South.
The Wolverine netters will meet
iami on Wednesday and Friday,
d Princeton on Saturday of this
ming week. Last year the Blue
st both matches to Miami, and
ie each to Princeton and North
arolina.
The only loss due to graduation
as Ray Senkowski who was
ichigan's big man for the past
ree seasons. All other members

of the team are back with a trio
of what Coach Bill Murphy calls
"real good" sophomores.
Fauquier Big Hope
Season hopes will evidently be
spearheaded by senior Harry Fau-
quier, who played for Canada in
the Pan American games last
year, whom Murphy says, "looks
good indoors, and seems to be
better than the rest of the boys
right now." Fauiquier and junior
Hal Lowe teamed up last spring
to take the Big Ten second dou-
bles from Northwestern/s Jim
Ericson and Ken Paulson. Fau-

quier also copped the second
singles crown as a sophomore.
Also returning is Brian Flood
who lost in the finals of last year's
tourney to Bill Rich of NU. Ron
Linclau, the other senior on the
team this year, suffered a three-
set loss to Skip Gage of North-
western in the finals of the sixth
singles tournament, but is pre-
paring to avenge that loss this
season.
Juniors John Fraser, a Cana-
dian, and Bo Barker, regulars on
last year's team are also back
this season.

Mich igan Daily Ad--rm

Also giving the Blue high hopes
for the year are sophs Carl He-
drick, Bill Dickson, and Jim Swift
who give the Wolverine netmen a
great deal of depth.
Michigan, who finished second
to Northwestern last year regard
the Wildcats, according to Mur-
phy as "real tough." Murphy
points out that Indiana and
Michigan State "are also going to
be good this year."
Northwestern, behind the one-!
two punch of Marty Reissen and
Clark Graebner, are definite f a-
vorites as the snow melts off the
courts for the last time. The
Wildcats grabbed six first place
medals and two second place
awards in the nine events last
season at the Big Ten meet.
Riessen and Grabener teamed
up in doubles last summer to take
the River Forest National Clay
Court Championship from Davis
Cup stars Chuck McKinley and
Dennis Ralston.
Two Conference Losses
The Blue finished last year
with a dual meet record of 7-6,
with two of those losses coming
in conference competition-to
Northwestern and Michigan State.
The Wolverines are a young,
team-Fauquier and Linclau are
the only seniors. But four of last
year's regulars as sophomores,_
Flood, Fraser.Barker, and Lowe
all havera year of experience un-
der their belts. In addition, the
new sophomores, Hedrick, Dirk-
sen, and Swift give the Blue
much-needed depth. With this
type of crew, Murphy's teams
have compiled an enviable 139-29
dual meet record over the past
fifteen years.
The top contenders for thist
year's Big Ten Championship are
the same schools that finishede
on top in the tournament held att
Northwestern last year: NU, Mich-t
igan, Indiana and MSU.

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer and
the Michigan golf team must have
chuckled at Ann Arbor's 40 degree
weather yesterday as they packed
their 'ban-lons and bermudas for
their annual trip south.
With six weeks of indoor prac-
tice'bhn them, the Wolverines
travel to Coral Gables, Fla., to
meet the Hurricans of Miami in
two dual meets. Then Michigan
competes with 20 other colleges in
Miami's Invitational tournament.
Michigan and Miami will do battle
in the two dual meets. on March
24-25. Later both will compete in
the Invitational on March 26-28.

Last year in their first trip to
the Sunshine State the Wolver-
ines split in the series with the
Hurricanes and went on to fourth
place in the Invitational, behind
Miami, Rollins College (Fla.) and
North Carolina.
Leading the linksmen onto the
Florida fairways this year will be
senior captain Gary' Mouw, who
notched tenth place in the Big
Ten championships last season.
Mouw is followed by two other
seniors, "Frosty" Evashevski and
Tom Clark, who saw action at
Coral Gables last year as juniors.
Katzenmeyer will also send jun-
iors Pete Passink and Mark Yahn,
two other returnees from the 1963
squad. Passink placed second
among the Michigan entrants in
the Miami tournament last spring,
with a 302 total.
Rounding out the Wolverine
travelling team are two newcom-
ers to the varsity, sophomores Bill
Newton and Chuck West.
Cinderm-en
Stay. Home
The Big Ten champion Michi-
gan track team will not take its
customary trip south for spring
vacation this year.
Originally Coach Don Canham
had intended to take his cinder-
men to Tennessee for two dual
meets. Canham, however, says
that his team has been working
very hard the past few weeks and
they have earned a rest.
The opening meet of the out-
door season will be at Kentucky a
week after classes begin again.

GET READY

By LLOYD GRAFF
In ten days Football Coach
Bump Elliott will trade rubber
chicken for inflated pigskin.
Monday, March 31 would-be
members of the 1964 Michigan
football team, will start to rip
up the turf on the practice field,
as the annual rites of spring
practice begin.
Coach Elliott will get off the
banquet tour and settle down .to
the task he loves, coaching foot-
ball. "I get an extra special feel-
ing about starting spring prac-
tice," said Elliott. "Spring foot-
ball is enjoyable because you can
spend, more time coaching the in-
dividuals. You.don't feel as much
pressure as when you are trying
to get a team ready for a Satur-
day game"
Top Players Back
Another reason he might be
happy is that he has 27. of his
top 38 players of last season com-
ing back, plus a host of promising
freshmen..
Probably the two biggest holes,
to be filled for next year will be
those of tackle and guard where
Captain Joe O'Donnell and Tom
Keating earned national notice
and the attention of the pros.
Elliott named. a couple of the
frosh who might step into O'Don-
nel's~ guard spot, Steve Yatchek
and Bill Hardy. The tackle posi-
tion is "up for grabs," in his
words .
Other freshmen. who figure
prominently in the tentative. plans
include a couple of speedy half-
backs and quarterback Dick Vid-
mer. The halfbacks, Carl Ward
and Jim Detwiler, have good size
and speed and several observers
think they have good shots atj
starting. Two of their competitors,
Rick Sygar and Rich Rindfuss
have been felled by leg injuries.
Sygar Rebreaks Leg
Sygar slipped on some campus
ice and rebroke his right leg two
inches below the break, he in-
curred in preseason practice. El-
liott calls him a "definite ques-
tion mark" for the coming season.
He will miss all of spring practice.
Rindfuss pulled some ligamentsI

in his left leg while playing intra-
mural basketball. His leg is in a
cast, but his injury is not expect-
ed to impair his running in the
fall.
Dick Vidmer is a quarterback
candidate out of Pennsylvania
who is said to have the tools to
be great. Bob Timberlake and
y Forrest Evashevski are the re-
turning lettermen at this vital
position. Evashevski, choosing
putter over padding, is out for
golf this spring.
Miss Spring Practice
Others. missing spring practice
will be Bill Yearby, Dorie Reid,
and John Rowser, who are out for
track.
Elliott is experimenting this
year by having practice' four days
per week rather than the conven-
tional five. His reasons are two-
i fold. It will give the athletes more
studying time prior to finals and
will be insurance against bad
weather which could completely
foul up a five-day schedule.
Spring practice which has been
abolished at many schools is con-
sidered by the Michigan mentor to
be an "absolute necessity if you
want to play Big Ten football." It
is a testing period for freshmen
and upperclassmen alike. It gives
the coaches a. chance to experi-
ment in style of play and training
methods. And perhaps most im-
portant, it enables the coaches to
become acquainted with their per-
sonnel so they can adequately
utilize it in the fall.
