special To The Daily
Ott and Mike Ware and the
doubles team of Joel Ross and
Dick Ravreby, the Wolverine
netters defeated Michigan State
in a dual meet here yesterday,
The Wolverines, who remain
in first place, a point ahead of
Indiana, increased their season
mark to 15-4.
"Ott p 1 a y e d outstandingly
well," coach Brian Eisner said,
praising his number two singles
player, who defeated Di Arman-
do Briggs, 6-4, 6-4.
"Briggs had the best record
at number two in the Big Ten,"
Eisner said, "and he was unde-
"Mike Ware beat Rick Ferman
just terribly bad. This was
somewhat of a home town rival-
40 ry. They're both from Detroit
and had played each other in
high school. Their matches had
always been close, so this was a
great victory for Mike."
Ware routed his number six
opponent, 6-0, 6-1.
Eisner had special praise for
Ross and Ravreby, who won the
n u m b e r one doubles match
against Tom Gray and Briggs,
6-3, 6-3. "They played the best
they had all year in defeating a
great team," Eisner said.
The coach felt Michigaun
should have won the other dou-

bles matches. In the number two
match, Rick Vetter and Mike
Madura beat Ott and Ware, 3-6,
6-1, 6-3.
In the other doubles match,
Jim Symington and Furman de-
feated Ramon Almonte and
Kevin Senich, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4.
"If we had gotten those,"
Eisner said, "the win would
have been more decisive and it
would have helped in total
points going into the Big Ten
tournament next week."
In other singles matches, Ross
lost to Gray in the number one,
6-2, 1-6, 6-0; Ravreby beat Ma-
dura at number three, 6-3, 3-6,
6-4; Almonte lost to Vetter at
number four, 6-4, 7-5, and Sen-
ich beat Symington, 6-3, 6-1.

Ice hero Pappin driven

a shelf in his trophy room,
"This one's going in Ray
Floyd's golf bag for luck to help

Floyd is a rabid Black Hawk
fan, and is friendly with many
of tho players, including Pap-
pin. He didn't ask for the win-
ning puck but he'll get it any-
way. It's the least Pappin can
do for golf-the thing that

drives him during the playoffs.
Golf equipment, you sge, costs

such. And winning the Stanley

Pappin Wednesday, as he basked

"I'll be able to spend my sum-

RALEIGH, NC. W) - A re-
solution inviting Vice President
Spiro Agnew to play golf Thurs-
day in the Pinehurst-Southern
Pines area while visiting North
Carolina was killed yesterday in
the state House,
Speaker Phil Godwin had first
referred the resolution to the
&Committee on Wildlife.
The Senate, meanwhile, passed
a similar resolution and sent it
to the House.
The resolution noted that Ag-
new's "reputation as a golfer
has preceded him, striking fear
and terror into the hearts of
grown men, causing mothers to

clutch sm all1 children to their
bosoms and creating disruptions
in the scheduleds of low fly-
ing aircraft."
It also noted that the Pine-
hurst-Southern Pines area has
14 golf courses "which are in
wide open spaces where little
damage may be done by unguid-
ed projectiles."
The resolution added that if
the vice president accepted the
invitation "appropriate warn-
ings shall be posted throughout
the county and notice shall be
given to all ambulance services,
rascue squads, and hospitals lo-
cated within the county."
