Undefeated Wildcats Stalking
Fifth Conference Tennis Title

Badgers Picked Over Wolverines

your return in the fall Michigan will be going after an
they'll be ready for you. For unprecedented fifth Big Ten ten-
nns championship this weelend,
details stop in or call but it doesn't take much of an
adding machine to show that a
powerful Northwestern net crew is
going to be a tough challenge to
ld onput down.
old bon clr The conference meet begins
Thursday on the Northwestern
515 E. William home courts at Evanston with ac-
NO 8-6335 tion continuing on Friday and
NO 8-7017 final matches slated for Saturday
afternoon. Actually the Wildcats
won't gain much of a home ad-

vantage, for the meet is the firstc
ever to be played on the new con-]
crete courts.
Michigan won the title last year;
by a 66% to 561/2 margin over
the second-place Wildcats, and the
Wolverines were picked as pre-
season co-favorites with North-
western to walk off with the Big
Ten crown this spring.. In the,
meantime, the Wildcats have
breezed through their conference
schedule With a series, of 9-0 wins,
and last weekend the Northwest-
ern aggregation ripped Coach Bill
Murphy's Wolverines, 7-2, on the
Michigan home courts.
The victory left Northwestern
with a 21-1 season mark, the only
loss coming at the hands of Miami,
6-1, during the southern tour. The
Wolverines are 7-6 for the year.
Michigan fell to Michigan State,
a team that Northwestern beat 9-0
the week before the Wildcat meet
by a score of 5-4. That would
leave the Spartans somewhere
near the top of the Big Ten to-
tem pole-the only other Michigan
State loss besides the one to
Northwestern was to Indiana, 5-4.
A Few, Anyway
The Hoosiers are bound to roll
up a few points at the tourney
along with a strong Iowa team,
with the rest of the Big Ten kind-
ly reserved to the lower ranks.
Back at the top, Northwestern is
counting on its one-two punch of
Marty Riessen and Clark Graebner
to take the first and second sin-
gles and form up a tough first
doubles team. Riessen is defend-
ing Big Ten singles champ; he'll
get some competition from Michi-
gan's Ray Senkowski, with Iowa's
Steve Wilkinson and Indiana's
Gary Baxter two more tough men
at first singles.
Michigan's Harry Fauquier will
be out to defend his second singles
crown, and it's a cinch he'll get a
strong test from Graebner, who

defeated the Wolverine captain
last Saturday, 6-4, 6-2.
Tourney Tune-up
Indiana plays Northwestern in
a dual match on the day before
the conference tournament begins,
and the Hoosiers will be taking an
18-2 record into the meet. North
Carolina and Michigan (by a 5-4
margin) have scored the only wins
over the Indiana team that has to
be rated as a dark horse candidate
along with Iowa and Michigan
Besides Baxter, the Hoosiers
boast talented soph Roddy Mc-
Nerney with a 17-3 record this
year at number two, and another
newcomer in Charley Kane (14-4)
on the third court.
Michigan State has been riding
high on an inexperienced team this
spring. First man Tom Jamieson,
a junior, went three sets with Sen-
kowski in the Michigan meet- be-
fore falling. Sophomore Canadian
Tony O'Donnell has looked good
in his opening year; he beat Fau-
quier in three: 3-6, 6-4, 6-0.
M' Wrestlers
Acting Associate Sports Editor
Five members of Michigan's Big
Ten Championship wrestling team,
Jack Barden, Bob Spaly, Rick Bay,
Gary Wilcox and Dave Dozeman,
have been named All-Americans.
Barden, who will rank among
the greatest of Coach Cliff Keen's
charges, won three titles in his
senior year. Barden defeated de-
fending champion Roger Pillath in
the Big Ten Meet at Northwestern,
to cop the heavyweight crown. It
was his first Big Ten title.
The second individual title for
Barden came in the NCAA Meet
at Kent, Ohio, when he took the
191-lb. championship. The senior
from Benton Harbor ended his ca-
reer two weeks ago at Sao Paulo,
Brazil, when he pinned his oppo-
nent in the Pan American heavy-
weight final.
Bay, Michigan's other Big Ten
titlist at 157-lbs., established him-
self as Keen's top sophomore. After
a successful dual meet season, Bay
went all the way in the Conference
championship to help insure the
Wolverine victory.
Wilcox, a junior, missed the first
semester this season, but estab-
lished himself with a winning dual
meet season in the 137-1b. class.
He was eliminated in the Confer-
once championship, but won some
opening matches in the NCAA's.
Dozeman, at 130-lbs., another
of Keen's talented sophs placed
third in the Conference Meet and
advanced through the preliminar-
ies in the NCAA Meet.
Spaly got his chance when Bar-
den moved down to 191-lbs. in the
NCAA's. The sophomore from Ann
Arbor gained points in Michigan's
third place finish in the NCAA's.
Iowa State also had five men on
the All-American team. No other
college placed as many.'

gan's chances in the Big Ten track
meet this Friday and Saturday at

Acting Sports Editor
Lots of track analysts have al-
ready counted Michigan out of the
running for the Big Ten cham-
pionship this week.
The Wolverines became co-
champions of the indoor meet last
March only because of two "mir-
acles," one a series of crippling
injuries to defending champion
Wisconsin and the other a histor-
ical reversed finish in the 60-yd.

dash that gave Coach Don Can-
ham's team an extra two points to
tie Iowa for the title.
Diamond Likes Wisconsin
Phil Diamond, the Midwest's
leading track handicapper and
Michigan's head timer for over 40
years, can't see how Michigan is
going to come up with another
miracle for its third straight out-
door crown.
"Wisconsin is in," he predicted
flatly after going over the .re-
sults of a recent Badger dual meet.
"They've got the best team. If
they're healthy, nobody can stop
"The best way to build a win-
ning track team is to get yourself
a sprinter, weight man and hur-

dler. That covers six events right
there outdoors. Wisconsin has two
sprinters, two weight men and
three hurdlers plus a whole team."
Canham Worried
Canham won't admit that Wis-
consin is "in" yet, but he's plainly
worried, largely over his team's
performances in the field events
and the hurdles.
Wisconsin won the indoor meet
a year ago on the strength of a
slam in the shot put and victories
in both hurdle races. This time it
is Michigan which will have to
score in these events, plus the high.
jump, to keep Wisconsin within
hailing distance.
Here is a rundown of seven of
the outdoor events.

-Daily-Bruce Taylor
CAN'T BEAT HIM-Mac Hunter, Michigan's junior sprinter, came close but couldn't quite match
Chicago's Ira Murchison (right) and Brooks Johnson (left) in Saturday's 220-yd. dash. Murchison,
a former Olympian, won in :21.8 and Johnson, who just returned with Murchison from representing
the U.S. in the Pan-American Games, edged Hunter for second.




SHOT PUT: Canham has what
he calls the best group of weight
men ever assembled at Michigan
-if they can come through in the
big meets.
Sophomore George Puce has the
best mark in the conference so far
ahis season in the shot put-56'-
and could tage the event. Two jun-
iors, Roger Schmitt and Ernst
Soudek, established new outdoor
bests Saturday with marks of 54'-
8%" and 53'1y2", respectively.
The only catch: Wisconsin's El-
mars Ezerins and Don Hendrick-
son placed one-two indoors this
year and will be out to do the
same again. Hendrickson's mark
of 54'3" is the best the duo has
done outdoors, although Eerins
topped 57' once indoors.
ines look better here than in any
other event. Soudek already holds
the varsity record of 1774" and
has topped 180' in practice. Puce
has thrown just shy of 170' and
has beaten Soudek in two meets
this season. The pair ranks one-
two in the conference right now,
but Canham also expects help
from Schmitt and soph Fred Lam-
bert, who have both hit over 150'.
Ezerins of Wisconsin is the de-
fending champion in the event but
has yet to make 160' this spring.
Others to watch are Hendrickson
and Cloyd Webb of Iowa, the win-
ner two years ago.
HIGH JUMP: The Big Ten
amassed its strongest field of
jumpers in history last March and
came up with a new Big Ten rec-
ord of 6'10" from Wisconsin soph-
omore Bill Holden. Holden has
been off form outdoors but team-
mate Tom Gwyn has done 66".
These two plus Iowa's Wes Sid-
ney and Indiana's Connie Miller,
who won both meets last year, all
threaten to push Michigan's Al
Ammerman down in the standings.
Holden's outdoor best is 6'8/4"
but Ammerman is next in the con-
ference at 6'8" and has a record of
being up for the big meets. He
cleared 6'6" for the first time in
the indoor conference meet for
fourth place.
POLE VAULT: This has been
'Canham's biggest worry all year.
George Wade has been having leg
trouble and last Saturday snapped
his only familiar pole trying to
vault 14'. Steve Overton made the
switch to fiberglass this year and
has been having his .troubles, al-
though he did make 14' Saturday.
Gary Wolff of Illinois is the
indoor champion, but Minnesota
has Chuck Morrow, Purdue has
Larry Ruch and Wisconsin has
Jim Nelson. It promises to be a
wide-open event.
BROAD JUMP: Michigan State's
Sherm Lewis led.a poor group of
broad jumpers indoors as no one
managed 24'. All this should
change now that Ohio State's Paul
Warfield, the NCAA runner-up
and a 26'-jumper, is eligible again.
Others in the running are Illi-
nois' Deryck Taylor and Purdue's
Jim Moore.
Michigan's Doug Niles and Tom
Sweeney have never placed in a
Big Ten meet, although Sweeney
has done 23' this spring.
Nuttall was Michigan's most pleas-
ant surprise of the indoor meet,
finishing second in the 70-yd.
highs despite a bad start which
left him last off the blocks.
Nuttall, a lanky Canadian, has
more running room to catch up
outdoors, but he's been troubled
by a sore foot and has not been
hurdling well yet, according to
Dale Lamski of Minnesota was
the indoor winner but everybody
seems to be watching Wisconsin's
big three-Steve Muller, whose
clocking of :14.4 is the best so far
in the conference; Larry Howard,
a double winner indoors last year;
and Gene Dix, who, like Howard,
was injured and below par in the
indoor meet last March.
DLE: This is a brand-new event

tis year and is open to anybody.
The best so far. look like Warfield,
second last spring in the 220-yd;'
lows, and Wisconsin's Al Montal-
bano, who has been winning con-
Canham hopes to spring a sur-
prise or two here, however, with
Joe Mason, whose' :38.8 makes him
the varsity record-holder; Norm
Kohns; and Charlie Peltz. None
has ever scored in a Big Ten
meet, but all do better at the
longer distance.
"I may commit suicide after the
meet," Canham predicted.



: 1

AQUINO AGAIN-Michigan's captain and only defending champion for this week's Big Ten track
meet, Charlie Aquino, came through over the weekend with a prestige victory in the 880-yd. run over
Dave Mellady of the Chicago Track Club in 1:54.7 over a slow track. Third behind Mellady was Ted
Kelly and a distant fourth was Dave Hayes, who had already won a 4:14.9 mile race.
