'M' Netmen To Swing South

into shape, and to find out who
can and can't do a job under game
conditions-particularly the sopn-
omores," said Benedict. In citing"
the sophomores, he was referring
to both catchers who will be mak-
ing the trip-the Adams boys,
Pete and Chuck; reserve infielder
George Skaff, and especially the
three sophomore pitchers, Marlin
Pemberton, Clyde Barnhart and
Jerry Hribar.
"By playing for a week straight
in the warm weather, everybody
will be trying to get himself into
good enough shape for the Big
Ten season, and we hope to be
able to come back and win the
Big Ten," commented Benedict
about the trip.
Start at Phoenix
The Wolverines will be playing
their first game of the season at
Phoenix, as compared with the
well over two dozen already play-
ed by the fun-in-the-sun boys.
Last year, desipte the NCAA and
world championships, when the
squad returned from Arizona they
found themselves with a 4-6 rec-
ord, including losses in the first
four games.
"We'll have our hands full try-
ing to beat these teams, if for no
other reason than they have been
playing outside since the first of
January," remarked Benedict. "We
will do everything we can to win,
with only one reservation-keep-
ing everyone in the best condi-
The first game is Saturday with
Grand Canyon College, followed
by a round-robin doubleheader

Sunday with the same team and
Phoenix College. There will be a
day off for travel from Phoenix to
Tucson on Monday. Then the Ari-
zona Wildcats will host the Wol-
verines for a six-game set, includ-
ing a big Sunday doubleheader on
the last day of vacation, Easter
Wish They Were There
Benedict expressed his regrets
over not being able to take more
players on the trip, but said, "It,
is absolutely necessary to bring;
seven pitchers, since one could
come down with a stiff arm for
a day or two, leaving only six.
And some games we'll use three or
"In addition, these are seven
pretty good throwers, and by that
I mean every one of them will be
able to help us over the season."
In addition to the three sopho-
more hurlers, four lettermen from
last year's squad will be on the
trip. Left-handed senior Fritz
Fisher and righty Dave Roebuck,
mainstays of last year's team, will
see plenty of action, as will jun-
iors Jim Bobel and Wayne Slusher.
Starting Lineup
The Michigan lineup at the start
of the trip will probably include
the catcher Pete Adams, second
base-shortstop combination Joe
Jones and Dick Honig, and center-
fielder Dennis Spalla down the
Jim Steckley and Ron Tate will
flank Spalla in the outfield and
Dave Campbell and Harvey Chap-
man will be at first and third
base respectively.

Michigan's defending Big Ten
champion tennis team takes off for
the sunny South next week, and
Coach Bill Murphy will have eyes
on his sophomore talent when the
Blue take on Miami and North
Carolina down at Coral Gables.
The Wolverines face Wisconsin
in the Big Ten opener at the re-
turn from spring vacation on Mon-
day, April 15, at 1:30 on the var-
sity courts.
With half of his starting six
gone from last year's team, Mur-
phy has four top sophs on hand

and three vacancies to fill as the
Wolverines go after their eighth
conference crown in nine years.
Senkowski, Fauquier Back
Ray Senkowski, who reached the
quarterfinals in the NCAA tourney
last summer before being defeated
by USC's Bill Bond, and captain
Harry Fauquier, defending Big Ten
number two singles champ, ap-
pear pretty well set as Michigan's
first two men again this spring.'
Ron Linclau, runner-up in Big
Ten sixth singles last year, will
battle it out with sophs John Fra-
ser, Brian Flood, Hal Lowe and
Bo Barker for the remaining
Flood, a lefty, and Fraser were
two of the top junior netmen in
Canada, and Lowe is an ex-Ari-
zona State high school champ.
Wait and See
"It's just too early to tell. about
any lineup," said Murphy at the
Wolverines' first outdoor practice
this week. "Playing indoors makes
it hard to tell-wood is a great
equalizer, and we'll just have to
wait until we get outdoors for a
while to see just how good we're
going to be."
The Southern trip is bound to
hiJs at
NORTHLAND, Southfield
DOWNTOWN, 1216 Randolph
DEARBORN, 5000 Scheafer
BIRMINGHAM, 159 W. Maple
ANN ARBOR, 1209 S. University
E. LANSING, 211 E. Gd. River

produce a few answers. Miami fin-
ished third in the NCAA meet last
summer, two notches above the
Wolverines, and the Hurricanes
are currently in the midst of a
161-game dual meet winning
streak. The Southerners tripped
up Northwestern, chief challenger
to Michigan's Big Ten title, last
week, 6-1.
The Wolverines will play Miami
twice and follow with a meet
against North Carolina.
Meet Badgers
Returning to Ann Arbor, the
Wolverines will face a Wisconsin
team that finished seventh in the
Big Ten last season. Michigan
downed the Badgers last spring in
a dual meet, 8-1.
Talking about the Big Ten this
spring, Murphy says, "Both Indi-
ana and Iowa have some pretty
good boys, and along with North-
western and Michigan it could be
real tight.
"Northwestern is going to be
good. They've got two great top
men (defending number one sin-
gles champ Marty Riessen and
soph Clark Graebner)-but-it al-
ways takes six to win."

Steady Spicer Ends Career

"Barry Spicer is a real pleasure,
to coach," says Newt Loken, coach
of Michigan's national champion
gymnastics team.
Spicer, a good-natured senior, is7
one of the most devoted men on
the squad, according to Loken, and
has turned in consistently depend-
able performances throughout his
college career.
Spicer, who had worked floor
exercise for the Wolverines this
year, has been a consistent second,
third or fourth place finisher
throughout the dual meet season.
The fact that he rarely placed first
is no disgrace, since his team-
mates Mike Henderson and Gil
Larose tied for first in that event
during the Big Ten meet, and
Henderson went on to capture the
NCAA floor ex crown.
'Big Three'
In Masters'
Have Woes
By The Associated Press
AUGUSTA--Arnold Palmer has
the driving woes, Jack Nicklaus
has an aching hip, Gary Player has
a strange premonition-and 82
other golfers wish them the worst
of luck in the 27th Masters Tour-
nament, opening today.
It's the tritely but appropriately
dubbed Big Three against the
field in the season's first major
championship, to be contested dur-
ing the next four days over the
blossoming but deceptively treach-
erous Augusta National course.
CHICAGO-The country's high
schools, "silent partners" in the
long-raging controversy between
the AAU and the U.S. Track and1
Field Federation, reported great
benefit from the federation's de-
velopment program yesterday.
Clifford B. Fagan, executive sec-
retary of the National Federation
of High School Athletic Associa-
tions, took a slap at the AAU,
which claims full sanctioning au-
thority . in amatuer meets, com-
menting, "Although we've been
silent partners in the controversy
between the AAU and the educa-
tional institutions, we are solidly
on the side of the Federation."

Spicer admitted that he was "a
bit discouraged" when Henderson,
only a sophomore, outscored him
in the opening meets of the sea-
However, as the year progressed
he began to realize the ability of
the sophomore flash, and he was
thus no longer dissatisfied with
his own performances.
Lascari Captain
The gymnastics team elected
Arno Lascari captain of next
year's squad. A junior, Lascari
replaces Gil Larose, who was
voted the most valuable at yes-
terday's meeting of the team.
The senior has also tumbled in
numerous meets this season and
comments, "Floor ex is challeng-
ing, but tumbling, above every-
thing else, is pure fun."
Misses Tumbling Finals
Though tumbling may be his
preference, he narrowly missed
qualifying in the finals for this
event in both the Big Ten meet
and in the NCAA championships.
In floor ex, however, he put on a
strong showing and finished sev-
enth in the Big Tens.
Spicer is a product of Tucson,
Ariz., where he tumbled for Cata-
lina High School. He was no small
star there in his senior year as he
captured the state tumbling cham-
pionship, as well as placing high
in several other events.
Spicer declared with no hesi-
tance that being a member of a
national champion gymnastics
team was the greatest thrill of his
college career.
Predicts Possible Repeat
In regard to next year, he pre-
dicted that in spite of the loss of
Milwaukee 3, Baltimore 2
Kansas City 10, Chicago (A) 5
Pittsburgh 6, New York (A) 0
St. Louis 6, Washington 4
Cincinnati 5, New York (N) 0
Boston 3, Los Angeles (N) 2
San Francisco 4, Cleveland 3
Houston 5, Los Angeles (A) 2
Detroit 5, Minnesota 4

Larose the team might very well
repeat its victory of this year and
retain its national crown.
Looking back upon his years
with the Wolverines, Spicer cites
as his most memorable gain the
experience offered by Big Ten
Looking to the future, he is still
a bit uncertain. A wildlife man-
agement major in the School of
Natural Resources, he tentatively
plans to return and work in some
capacity in a desert area of his na-
tive Southwest.
