OPPOSE

ILLINI

To Enable Team To Catch
Train For Madison

With victories over two Conference
rivals, Purdue and Northwestern, to
its credit, the Michigan golf tean
today faces the task of disposing of
another Big Ten opponent, Wiscon,
sin, in a match at Madison.
The Wolverine squad, composed of
Captain Connor, Bergelin, Cole, Vysf,
and Ahlistrom, a sophomore, was
scheduled to arrive in the Badger
stronghold sometime yesterday in or-
der to secure some practice before1
meeting the Wisconsin golfers. The
match with Northwestern was short-
ened, Michigan forfeiting the last fivej
points in the foursomes, in order to
catch a train for Madison.
Will Use Sante Lineup
The Michigan lineup probably will
he the same one that opposed the
Purple on Thursday. Captain Con-
nor, Bergelin, Cole and Vyse should
compete in the twosomes with Con-
nor, and Cole as well as Bergelin and
Ahlstrom' paired in the foursomes.
Wisconsin tasted its first Confer-
ence competition Thursday against
the Iowa team. Previous to that.
match, the only actual match played
by Cardinal Mashie artists was a pre-
liminary bout with Marquette. The
Badgers just managed to slip past
with a 9 to 8 victory.
Coach Leith was uncertain of the
lineup he would pit against the Wol-
verines. He was certain however that
several changes would be made in the
lineup that opposed Marquette. Sam
Kennedy, who turned in the lowest
score, a 79, was fairly certain of a
position as was Pope who also made
a brilliant showing.

Hawk club of Madison last summer.
who did not get a chance in the prac-
tice tilt, was also slated as a probable
starter. Coach Leith was still holding
out a faint hope that John Marshall.
another Madison product, might be-
come eligible. His addition to tlic
team probably would irrake the Car-
dinal a real threat for the Big Ten
title.. Other Badger golfers who may'
break into the game include Feit-
ing, Hamilton and Frost ,with the lat-
ter having the best chance.
The matcl? is to be played over the
Maple Bluff course with the morning
round of 36 holes of play scheduled
to start at nine o'clock.
