Netters advance in NCAA's
CORPUS CHRISTI, TEX. - Michigan tennis coach
Brian Eisner was quite relieved at the end of the day
yesterday. Still reeling from the elimination of ninth-
seeded Victor Amaya the day before, the Wolverines
advanced through yesterday's action unscathed, win-
rling six matches in the process at the Pan American
One of the Wolverines already walked off with a
major victory. Fred DeJesus was voted the tourna-
ment's Raphael Osuna award given to the collegiate
tennis player who best exemplifies merit academically
and on the courts.
The award named after Southern Cal's Raphael Osu-
na, a former national champion who was killed in a
plane crash, had special meaning for DeJesus, who
knew the late tennis star.
AS TO yesterday's results, Eisner was quite pleased.
"We had an outstanding day today in not losing a
set," he said. "Its been very hot out here and the
wind is a big factor. It's completely changed the way
a person plays out here."
DeJesus proved a worthy recipient of the award as
he defeated Tracy Delatte of Tennessee 7-6, 7-5, in the
morning, then came back later in the afternoon to
trounce Trinity's Mike Grant, 6-4, 6-2.
THESE WERE two quality wins according to Eisner.
The Wolverines faced Delatte back in earlier May
when Jeff Miller beat him badly, but the Volunteer is
only a freshman. Grant is an outstanding player and
is the first from Trinity's team to be eliminated.
Michigan now has ten points, compared to a total
of 19 last year. Two points also came from Eric, Fried-
ler who did well against stiff competition. First he de-
feated Hans Gildemeister of USC 7-6, 6-3, then hand-
led Appalachian St. ace Keith Richards 6-4, 7-6.
"Friedler had a real good day," extolled Eisner. The
junior from Evanston, Ill. teamed with Jerry Karzen
at the end of the day to eliminate Morris Parker and
Jerry Belinsik of San Diego St.
"Victor played well, I'm very pleased with his per-
formance," assured Eisner of the 6-7 Amaya, who now
must concentrate on his doubles play. Concentrate he
did, as he and Fred DeJesus, seeded first disposed
of Ted Baily and Mike Vogel of Arkansas 6-4, 7-5.
Today the two will face the team of Saviano and
Mitchell, Etanfords No. 2 doubles. Friedler and Karzen
will face Conden and Simon of Cal State-Long Beach.
In singles DeJesus will meet UC-Irvine's Scott Carna-
han, while Friedler takes on Jao Soraes of Pepper-
dine who eliminated him last year, in a 7-5 third set.
The singles field will be narrowed down to 32 at the
start of today's action. If Michigan can. avoid any
upsets for the next couple rounds they can assure them-
selves of a high finish. Southern Cal, last year's sec-
ond place finisher is already down to one singles play-
er, fifth-seeded Butch Walts, and one doubles team.

Sports of the Daily
By The Associated Press
MONTREAL-The National Hockey League named its Most
Valuable Player, added five former stars to the Hall of Fame
and decided against permitting a one-eyed defenseman to join
the Buffalo Sabres.
Philadelphia Flyres' center Bobby Clarke was awarded the
Hart Trophy as the league's Most Valuable Player; Bobby Orr of
the Boston Bruins won the James Norris Trophy as the league's
top defenseman; Eric Vail of the Atlanta Flames was named the
NHL's top rookie of 1974-75 and Marcel Dionne of the Detroit Red
Wings was voted the Lady Byng Trophy as the player who best
exhibited sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct while display-
ing outstanding ability on the ice.
The Hall of Fame inductees were goalie Glenn Hall and
o defenseman Pierre Pilote, who spent the bulk of their careers
with the Chicago Blackhawks, and three former members of the
Toronto Maple Leafs-George Armstrong, Gordie Drillon and
Meanwhile the league's Board of Governors voted 13-3 with
two absentions not to accept a special protective mask which
would permit young defenseman Greg Neeld to play despite the
fact he only has one eye.
It was also reported yesterday by Allan Malamud, sports
editor of the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, that the Detroit Red
Wings would trade Marcel Dionne to the Kings.
The trade will not be finalized however, until or if the Kings
sign Dionne. The report also said that L.A. was willing to ex-
change Dan Maloney, Sheldon Kannegeiser, Terry Harper and
Juha Widing for Dionne, who is now a free agent.
Bengals swap Muhlmann
CINCINNATI-Kicking specialist Horst Muhlmann, the Cin-
cinnati Bengals' all-time scoring leader, has been traded to the
Philadelphia Eagles for an undisclosed draft choice, the National
Football League team announced yesterday.,
Muhlmann, at 35, was the oldest member of the NFL's newest
team and owned one of the league's best kicking percentages.
On top of the action
Tony Taylor of the Philadelphia Phillies found himself in a strange position as he slid between
the legs of Chicago Cubs secondbaseman Manny Trillo in the second inning last night. Taylor
safely stole secondbase but it was in vain as the Cubs won 9-5.
Beniquez' homer leads
BOsox past Tigers, 7-6

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Pitching Lerrin
LaGrow and expecting to win,
is like wearing a grey flannel
suit to a Rolling Stones concert.
LaGrow, a towering right-
hander cast in the classic mold
of Weeping Claude Willoughby,
Silent Cal Benge and Boom-
Boom Beck, gave up four runs
in two-thirds of the first inning
last night. As one would expect,
his Detroit Tigers eventually
bit the dust, but at least they
Mnade it interesting.
Boston's 7-6 victory, which
wasn't nailed down until Ron
LeFlore flied to right with two
men on in the ninth, set the
Bengals one more game below
.500, and one more game behind
te pace-setting BoSox. Rick
ise, who had troubles of his
own in the first inning, was
credited with the victory . .
basically because the scoring
rules insist that a winning
pitcher must exist.
After retiring the first batter,
LaGrow surrendered line singles
to Rick Burleson and Carl Yas-
trzemski, and a walk to Rick
Lynn that loaded the bases. One
popup later, Bernie Carbo's
grounder between Aurelio Rod-
riguez and Tom Veryzer scored
a pair, and Rico Petrocelli fol-
lowed with a double to left to
send LaGrow away.
Mike Brookens, just up from
Evansville, lasted through the
fourth inning, allowing a pair of
runs, four hits, and fanning five.
Ron LeFlore, who finished the
night with four hits, led off the
Tiger first with a liner to right.
Gary Sutherland walked and
Danny Meyer drove in LeFlore
with a single to center.
Willie Horton's shot to right-
field scored Sutherland, and
Meyer came across when Leon
Roberts, who eventually got
three hits, grounded into a
Boston added another run in
the third when Bernie Carbo
walked, took second on a wild
pitch, and came home on Denny
Doyle's base knock. But Horton
walked in the Tigers' half of the
inning, and tallied on the first
of John Wockenfuss' four hits.
Boston got another marker in
the fourth on singles by Juan
Beniquez and Lynn.
Dave Lemanczyk allowed the
eventual winning run on a Bent-
quez' homer in the top of the
eighth, making the score 7-4.
