Michigan Faces Notre Dame Nine

Call From the Baseline:
'Harry and Who?'
Goliath. Remember? He had one hell of a great forehand smash.
O.K., so call him Riessen, call him Senkowski, call him Graebner
-little Harry will throw rocks at him. Make that sling a Ken Rose-
wall autograph model Slazenger, grip 4%" with a medium weight
frame, nylon reinforced gut valued at 16 dollars a stringing. Make
the mineral Wilson Championship fuzz-and you've got Fauquier,
pronounced FAWK-EE-AIR or FOKE-EE-AY, depending on whether
you mispronounce it or give it the French savoir faire treatment.
I sat and watched Harry .powder a few overheads ("my weak
point") at practice last week, and my mind drifted back to three
years ago when I first mistook Harry for the ball boy. Just 5'" of
Canadian firewater, someone once said that around the courts in
Vancouver, B.C., they used touse
Harry to measure the height of
the net.
"Being small is no big thing,"
quips Harry in typical Fauquier
fashion. "The only time I wish I
+hwere 12 inches taller is when (I
come rushing to the net, reach
for a high outside passing shot,
and-wham!-there it goes, three
courts down."
So how do you figure a mite
like Harry in the number one
slot-captain two years running,-
ex-Canadian junior champ, and
defending Big Ten second doubles
.4w...a..f w title-holder?
r "Concentration. And a heck of
.. *a lot of running. I'd rather loaf.
But when you lack the size you've
got to make up for it someway.
HARRY FAUQUIER \Its too bad."
Heh, heh, but it's true.
"Harry has to take two steps to every one of mine," says third
man John Fraser, who's the tallest on the team, "but he's so darn
quick on his feet that his size is actually an advantage to him at
the net. He can make a fast shift from side to side-doesn't get
his feet all tangled up," Fraser, also a native of Canada, has been
competing with or against Harry for the' past five years. "Ken
Rosewall isn't much more than an inch or two taller than Harry
-it really isn't a big man's game. Most tennis players average only
about 5'9" or 5'10". The only big disadvantage is facing the lob
at the net."
Harry agrees. "Overheads are my weakness-and I hate prac-
ticing them. But I worked on it all winter and I feel better now
hitting them."
View From the Top...-
The Wolverine captain played second fiddle his first two years
to Ray Senkowski and moved into the top spot this spring with
Senkowski's graduation. Harry swept through the northern schedule
of his sophomore year without a defeat and then took home the
second singles Big Ten championship at Minneapolis. Teaming with
Senkowski in the first doubles of the tourney brought home a runner-
up trophy after the Wolverine pair lost to Northwestern's Marty
Riessen-Jim Ericson combo in a final three-set battle.
Last year Harry left the team after the southern tour in the
early spring to compete for Canada in th' Pan-American games,
contracted a case of the flu on his returr ,nd didn't finally join
the Wolverines again until the last two r ts of the season.
And then a great homecoming. He f' in three sets to Michigan
State's Tony O'Donnell when the Spart' , upset Coach Bill Murphy's
Big Ten champs, then ran into
cannonball soph Clark Graebner P
-fresh out of the Northwestern,
tennis vats-who dropped Harry.
6-4, 6-2. .
"I thik the South American
trip did me more harm than good,"
comments Harry. "It gave me a
late start-if .I had played here
I would have had 10 to 15 matches
of experience. As it was I came
back a bit match-shy.":
'Tuned up in time for defense of
his second singles title in the Big
Tens at Evanston, Harry swept
through the opening rounds, lost .p
out in the finals to-yeh-Graeb
ner in three sets. The Wolverine
little man paired with Hal Lowe to ,{ }ham, ; '...v
snatch the second doubles medal
as Michigan, finished second to d
Northwestern in the final score GOLIATH
This year around the Wolverines have to face an even rougher
go to the top of the heap with the Wildcats still Riessen-Graebner
strong and with Indiana and Michigan State looking tough in
matches so far. And for Fauquier, the Big Ten tournament will be a

forest of Goliaths. Riessen, Jamieson, Power - plenty of people to
throw rocks at.
With only two home meets on tap for the Wolverines this spring,
Michigan net fans will get a chance to see Harry in action against
Michigan State and Ohio State this spring. He's a hard guy to miss
and great player to watch. Renowned for his constant stream of vocal
interjections, Harry comments that "when I was a sophomore I used
to do a lot more talking to myself-I didn't want anybody to win a
point against me and I used to get all tensed up. I seem to be enjoying
the game more now."
Fauquier's shots are so smooth that it's almost to his dis-
advantage. "Most players usually 'junk' a few shots over," says Fraser,
"and this throws off the opponent's timing. Not Harry. He hits the
ball so well that it actually makes it easier for the opponent to
time his game."
And, like Goliath, he's got one hell of a forehand smash.

A "hustling" Michigan baseball
team will run onto the field to-
day to face Notre Dame - the
team that was the first victim of
the Wolverines' successful road
trip last week.
Sophomore Carl Welch will be
on the mound' for the Wolverines
and will be trying for, the fifth
straight complete game perform-
ance by a Michigan hurler. Last
Thursday, Paul Schuldt hurled 2
three-hit shutout against the Irish
at South Bend. Michigan then
traveled to Wisconsin where Clyde
Barnhart blanked the Badgers on
four hits in the Big Ten opener.

leaders completed the weekend by
defeating Northwestern twice be-
hind distance performances by Bill
Wahl and Marlin Pemberton.
Michigan now has a season iec-
ord of 9-10, and prior to these last
four games Wolverine hurlers had
only had two complete games to
their credit.
Benedict seemed very pleased
after Saturday's twin-killing of the
Wildcats, 7-1, 8-1. He attributed
the victories to "an all-out team
effort with plenty of hustle."
In the seventh inning of the
night cap at Northwestern, Ted
,Sizemore hit a ground ball to third
baseman Bill Hansen. Hansen
picked up the ball and threw wild-
ly to first base, enabling Size-
more to go to second. The offi-
cial scorer gave Sizemore credit
for a base hit and gave Hansen
an error for allowing the Michigan
catcher to reach second base. The
scorer explained this by saying:
"The runner (Sizemore) was run-
ning quickly toward first and it
would have been a close play if the
throw had been good." Sizemore's
speed is just one instance of the
team's "100 per cent effort" which
according to Benedict was the rea-
son for the victories.
Neither Wahl nor Pemberton

were very generous to the home
team in Saturday's double victory.
Wahl, the junior rightha'nder from
White Plains, N.Y., celebrated his
birthday a day early as he limit-
ed Northwestern to one run on
six hits. The Wolverine hurler
notched eight strikeouts by throw-
ing an assortment of sliders, curves
and a "sneaky" fastball, accord-
ing to catcher Sizemore.

Pemberton, a junior who had
pitched only nine and two-thirds
innings in Michigan's first 18
games, whipped the Wildcats by
fanning six and scattering four
The diamondmen are now tied
for first place in the Big Ten
with Purdue at 3-0. The co-lead-
ers will clash at Ferry Field Fri-
day afternoon.

Rug by Club
The Michigan Rugby Club ab-
sorbed two disastrous defeats this
weekend to bring their spring rec-
odto 4-6-1.
Seven players, five of these from
Michigan, received injuries seri-
ous enough to require hospitaliza-
tion. The injuries ranged from
scalp wounds to internal bleeding.
The spirited and fast Illinois
squad, whom the Michigan men
had previously defeated, 18-0,
turned the tables and came away
with an 11-6 victory. The Blue
ruggers threatened to score sever-
al times, but then the tight Illini
defense held.
The Michigan second team,
playing with several new players,
was soundly defeated by a pow-
erful Waukegan Rugby Club, 16-5,
Again the Blue were frustrated in
their attempts to score as Wauke-
gan's superior kicking proved de-
The weekend activity climaxes
the Club's home schedule. Next
weekend thehruggers will journey

cago-the Minnesota game being
played for the "Little Brown Jug"
of Rugby.

MARLIN PEMBERTON shows the pitching form that scored
Michigan's fourth straight victory last Saturday. The junior
hurler limited Northwestern to four hits as he turned in the
Wolverines' fourth complete pitching performance of the road

a season mark of 9-3, will play
on the second court. Hedrick's
losses came at the hands of Mi-
ami at first and second singles
and Indiana at first doubles.
John Fraser, one of the team's
five juniors will once again play
at third singles, and will team
up with Hedrick to compose the
first doubles combo. Fraser holds
a 7-5 season standard.
Hale Lowe, 4-6, back in action
after a minor illness will return
to his customary spot at fourth
singles, and will probably team
up with Fauquier to compose the
second doubles team.
Brian Flood, another junior, will
tackle Notre Dame's fifth man.
Flood is 4-2 on the season.
Jim Swift, 3-7, Bill Dixon, 3-7,
and George Russell, 1-0, will fight
it out for the sixth singles spot
and third doubles team.
Murphy expects the Irish to
start about the same lineup that
they did last year when the Wol-
