Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS -- Michigan's
unbeaten tennis team will seek its
fourth consecutive Big Ten title
on the clay courts in Minneapolis
this afternoon.
The Wolverines stretched their
win streak to eight, while at the
same time sharpening up for this
afternoon's first round of action,
by rolling over Wisconsin's squad
yesterday, 8-1.
They turned the power on, rac-
ing past their opponents in the
top four singles spots and sweep-
ing doufles play. The lone loss was
a squeeker in the fifth singles po-

sition - Wisconsin's Pancho King
edged Tom Beach 10-8.
No Test
The Wisconsin match, while
definitely not testing the Wolver-
ines' strength as it will be tested
by the concentrated efforts of Big
Ten first division finishers, North-
western, Michigan State, and In-
diana, still gave the Wolverines a
good work-out.
Oddly enough, the matches were
played in Pro-Sets. This means
that the winner is the first man
to take ten games winning by at
least two.

everything except death and taxes. Naturally I want my taxes to

Beach and Ron Linclau showed
determination in the three doubles
spot. After being down, 4-8, at the
hands of Wisconsin racketmen,
Don Oberlin and Pancho King,
they fought back to tie and finally
win, 15-13.
Warm Up
The Wisconsin meet yesterday
served to warm the Wolverines up
for toda:-'s tough action. The win-
ner of the Big Ten Championship
in the next three days takes the
conference. Coaches met last night
to determine the seeding for to-
probably be seeded number one in
day's matches. Ray Senkowski will
the one singles slot.
While the strain of the Big Ten'
Conference meet is great just from
the rewards of winning, the sheer
number of matches that must be
played wear the player down. The
final winner in each division not
only has ability, but endurance.
Michigan's "Big Four," Ray'
Senkowski, Larry Fauquier, Gerry
Dubie, and Jim Tenney, still tote
unmarred records. Whether they
can retain them against the 'tops
in the Big Ten is another question.
Big Ray
Senkowski, only a junior, yet
one of the finest players in the
country, will undoubtedly have
one of the roughest times - fight-
ing for his number one crown.
Trying to grab it will be Indi-
ana's Gary Baxter, who Senkowski
defeated almost two weeks ago,
6-2, 7-5; Michigan State's Brain
and Northwestern's Marty Riessen,
Eisner, who he defeated 6-1, 6-3;
who he has yet to play.
Riessen, only a sophomore and
playing the number one spot, may
prove to be the biggest threat. He
was on last year's Davis Cup team
and ranked 17th in the nation.

Recurring Crisis
While more intent minds have been bent towards solving various
journalistic crises in two major cities of this fair state during the past
weeks, it has been the feeling here that there was a more immediate
area for concern. It's a recurring situation, one that each newly select-
ed sports editor has to deal with and settle in order to allow peace of
mind-namely the manly, articulate art of selecting a name for a
Granted, there are other problems that have to be dealt with,
such as trying to watch every team in action when they all have
scheduled an encounter for the same time; or apologizing to a
coach after a staff-member misquotes him; or trying gamely to
digest a small breakfast while reading all the mistakes in the
morning paper; or trying to forget that we play Michigan State in
football next year; or trying to stay eligible for next season; or
trying to forget that we play Michigan State in football next
year . .. But, by far the most difficult and most serious decision
to make is that of choosing a column name.
The problem is immediately complicated by the fact that there
have been hundreds of columnists before and that it is not cricket
to be a plagiarist. The Daily itself has had everything from "Daily
Sports," by Hal Applebaum, to the more racy, "Bull Session," by B.
S. Brown. Mix in "The Winners' Circle," by Mike Burns, and "In
One Ear," by Brian MacClowry, and it is easy to see that the field
has been thoroughly covered. The problem is slightly analagous to
trying to pick successors to Fritz Crisler-the choices are few,
A Cold Night ...
It was on a mild night that I finally thought of The $2.00 Win-
dow, knowing full well that the name had more than likely already
been used. It was fairly interesting trying to picture what other kind of
guy would use $2.00 Window as a column name, but gave it up for
fear of self-degradation. It seemed that the better path was to ration-
alize why I should want to call a column by that name.
It should first be noted that I have never been inside a race
track in my life, which is an interesting notion. It just seemed
that if I ever went to a track, which I plan on doing, I would cer-
tainly make use of the aforementioned window. I would use it be-
cause I'm not prone to spending money in large lots and like to
use my money where it would reap the biggest dividend-on a 120-
1 shot. A 120-1 shot is not the best thing to put more than $2.00 on
and that brings us close to the Michigan sports scene, particular-
ly when the Wolverines play Michigan State in football.
Lastly, it seemed like a place where a man clutching his last two
dollar bill should receive a little advice before casting his final lot.
Since this poor man can't get such advice from the cold gentleman be-
hind the window,'I decided to rectify the situation. And thus I say
to you in this initial offering that I face the year ahead, ready, to put
my $2.00 on my predictions.
Great Apprehension.*.
I do this with a certain amount of apprehension since the year
will not go by without someone commenting that my opinions are not
worth two cents.
The name being decided on, the only thing remaining was to de-
sign the column. I didn't like the idea of squeezing my face into the
usual column picture, so I enlisted Ken Winter, a part-time writer,
part-time student, and full-time artist, to handle the job, and he con-
cocted the above item. It's large and very much out of tradition and
I fully expect to find three former sports editors at my desk tomor-
row morning, but it stays.
And besides, I like the idea of having my picture in the middle
of a treasury note. It has a ring of importance.

Big Ten Athletic Leaders Meet
To Discuss Football Scheduling

Open Monday Nights til 8:30'

By The Associated Press
LAFAYETTE-The Big Ten has
a cart-before-the-horse problem
to unscran ble today in arranging
football schedules for the 1967-68
At the opening session of the
spring meeting of faculty repre-
sentatives, athletic directors and
football coaches, a go-ahead on
the 1967-68 slates must await final
approval or disapproval of a pro-
posed elimination of a full confer-

ence round-robin schedule by 1969.
Last March, conference athletic
leaders decided to freeze the
league's progressive grid schedule
at the already-drafted 1965-66
level of seven conference games
and three outside games.
But in the automatic review by
individual schools of this action,
there was some switch of senti-
ment about shelving the progres-
sive plan calling for eight confer-
ence games in 1967-68 and a full-
round-robin of nine in 1969 with
only one outside game.
Certain to be discussed by the
policy-making faculty representa-
tives and directors is the progress
of college federations in track,
basketball and gymnastics, aimed
at unseating what the National
College Athletic Association re-
gards as monopolistic control of
those sports by the National Ama-
teur Athletic Union.

We a re now

The Big Ten will be urged to
give full support to those federa-
tions by a three-man committee
which attended the NCAA's March
meeting in Chicago to implement
the new groups.
The committee includes Com-
missioner Bill Reed, Athletic Di-
rector Stu Holcomb of Northwest-
ern and Athletic Publicitor Fred
Stabley of Michigan State.
Although Reed sees hope for
eventual peace between the col-
lege group and the AAU, the Big
Ten ,obviously takes a dim view of
the recent action by the Indiana
AAU in suspending several Purdue
and Indiana athletes for partici-
pating in the Ohio eRlays April 21.
The meet was conducted without
AAU sanctions.
The National AAU, apparently
concerned by the furor caused by
the Indiana AAU, has hastened to
point out that the appearance of 1
Adams and Miller will not "con-
taminate" the amateur status of
other Big Ten athletes because the
conference meet is "closed compe-
tition." The AAU is concerned only
with "open ncompetition which
require,; AAUJ sanction.

including the new

The AAU refused today to rise
to the bait dangled by the NCAA,
in the first head-on test of the
two organizations in their struggle
for control of amateur sports.
Sources said the AAU headquar-

ters here would not press for blan-
ket suspension of 11 college track
athletes who competed in the Ohio
Relays last month. There were in-
dications that the suspension of
the runners by the Indiana AAU
was only "temporary." One has
already been reinstated.
"We are not in the business of
trying to make everyone ineli-
gible," an AAU spokesman said
here. "We are in the business of
promoting competition.
The spokesman also said the
athletes involved "s u s p e n d e d
themselves" by running in the Re-
lays, which are not sanctioned by
the AAU. He said, however, that
"these kids are pawns in a power
struggle, and we are not going to
let them wreck their careers in a
struggle like that."
