While most University stu-
dents will be finishing up the
semester and deserting Ann Ar-
bor within the next' few days,
the Michigan tennis team is
just warming up in pursuit of,
its 1972 goals: a fifth straight
Big Ten titles and recognition
as one of the top teams in the
country. The netters face their
biggest obstacles to those goals
when they take on Indiana this
afternoon on the Hoosiers' home
The Wolverines may be the
established number one tennis
power in the Midwest, but nuitn-
ber two Indiana has been try-
ing harder lately. The Hoosiers,
like the Wolverines, are unde-
feated so far this year in con-
ference play, with no opponent
winning more than two matches
against them.
Indiana, which continued a
habit last year by finishing sec-
ond to Michigan, has five of its
top six men from last year back,
and has two fine freshmen who
have cracked the lineup. They
are the only team which to date
has shown the potential to de-
feat the Wolverines in the Big
Wolverine coach Brian Eisner
recognizes the importance of
the meet. "Without a doubt," he
says, "this is by far the big-
gest individual meet we will
play this year." 'The winner of
today's meet will probably go
into the Big Ten tournament in
mid-May with a lead in the race
for the crown.
Today's meet will feature
some interesting match-ups, es-
pecially at first and second sin-
gles. At first singles,' defending

Big Ten champ Joel Ross of
Michigan will be up against his
biggest nemesis of last year,
Mark Bishop, who beat Ross
twice last year in close matches.
At number two, freshmen
'Jeff Miller of the Wolverines
and Doug Sullivan of the Hoos-
iers will battle it out. The match
will feature the hard-hitting and
power service game of the
Michigan frosh against the
quickness and scrappiness of the
Indiana man.
Two more freshmen, Michi-
gan's Jerry Karzen and Indi-
ana's Steve Kendall will go at it
in the number five singles, while
experienced players will com-
pete for both sides in the three,
four and six spots. Dick Ravre-
by, Tim Ott, and Kevin Sen-
nich will man those three posts
respectively, for Michigan. while
the Hoosiers will counter with
Walt Herrick, Tom Snyder, and
Tom Dunker.
Should the Wolverines come
up with a decisive win today,
they will be well on their way to
their eleventh conference crown
in the last thirteen years, and
it will be no surprise to anyone.
This year's group is much im-
proved over last year's team,
which took five of the nine sin-
gles and doubles , titles and
walked off fairly easily with the
Big Ten championship.
Beyond today's contest, the
rest of the Wolverines' Big Ten
schedule is not overly challeng-
ing. Illinois and Northwestern
are decent and could conceivab-
ly give the Michigan men a few
worries, but it's not likely. The
netmen may have a tough
at home this Sunday, when
they entertain Southern Illinois,

one of the best independents in
the midwest.
After this weekend, the Wol-
verines will be pointing to the
Big Ten Tournament, May 12-14
at Wisconsin. The Big Ten win-
ner is determined on a point
basis, with the tournament it-
self counting about equally with
all the dual meets combined. In
other words, the team that goes
into the tournament having won
more individual singles and dou-
bles matches over the course of
the dual meet season, will have
a lead, but will still have to do
well in the tournament to be-
come Big Ten champ.
Right now, it looks as if the
balanced and deep Michigan
squad could easily match or im-
prove upon their total of five
tournament titles gained last
year. Eisner believes that all six
of his singles players and all
three doubles teams will be
serious contenders for Big Ten
crowns. He points out that his
players have taken 27 of the 29
matches in the three Big Ten
dual meets to date.
Ross, who took the confer-
ence singles title in 1971, is the
favorite to retain it, and in
Eisner's words, "is playing bet-
ter than he did last year." At
number two, Miller is a player
who for almost any other team
in the midwest would be playing
number one.

Ravreby failed to take the
number three title last year, but
with a year's experience he will
be a threat to do so in 1972.
while Ott, Eisner's second sin-
gles man last season, is going
to be hard to beat at number
four. Karzen and Sennich at
five and six are also players
who are almost too good for
their flights, and will be real
contenders for individual crowns.
The three Wolverine doubles
teams, Ross and Ravreby at one,
Karzen and Sennich at two, and
Ott and Miller at three, are all
unbeaten as yet in the Big Ten,
and Michigan will threaten for
all three titles.
After the Big Ten meet, one
more goal lies ahead for the
Wolverine netmen: to finish in
the top ten in the NCAA meet.
Despite dominatingethe mid-
west, no Michigan team in re-
cent times has been able to
break into the domination of
the warmweather schools of the
south and far west.
Eisner thinks that this is the
year his team can finally hurdle
into national prominence. Out-
side of the top three or four
(Trinity, Southern Cal, Stanford,
and UCLA), "we stack up with
any team in the country," he
says. Currently, the Wolverines
are 14th ranked, the only mid-
west team in the top 20.

Keen award
Michigan wrestling captain
Mark King has been voted the
1972 recipient of the Cliff Keen
Award. Wolverine mat coach Rick
Bay made the announcement yes-
terday. The award is named after
the former great Michigan coach
The trophy is presented annual-
ly to the senior wrestler who, in
the judgement of his teammates
and coaches, best demonstrates
the leadership qualities exempli-
fied by Coach Keen.
King, a native of DeKalb, Illi-
nois, was hobbled by injuries most
of the season and was able to
wrestle only nine matches. How-
ever, according to Bay, "Mark
provided outstanding leadership
for this squad, despite his own
problems. He is a tremendous in-
dividual and is certainly deserving
of this honor."

That's why Northwest came up
with Reserved Youth Fare.
Camping out is great. But not at an airport.
Sometimes, unfortunately, it turns out that way.
Now, though, we've done something about it.
If you have any airline Youth Card, you can
get a reserved seat for 20% off. Make a reser-
vation and when flight time comes, just walk
in and take your seat along with all the other
important people. No waiting. No worrying. No

getting bumped off the plane when you really
wanted to go all the way home.
If you don't have a Northwest Youth Card,
you should. And you can get one at any North-
west ticket office or your campus travel agent.
(Be sure to bring along proof that you're be-
tween 12-22.)
Next time you can't afford to wait, remem-
ber Northwest's Reserved Youth Fare. And call
your travel agent or Northwest Airlines.
