Illinois and Chicago Bare Path
of Racket Squad in Quest
of Conference Tite.
Victors in the Western Confer-
ence dual meet competition for the
season. Michigan's Varsity tennis
team will invade Chicago today for
the Big Ten Tennis meet that will
be held today and tomorrow. As a
result of the team's good showing
in winding up the dual meet sea-1
son in first place with only one
defeat against it, the Wolverine
team will be included among the
favorites to walk off with the title.
Competition at Chicago, however,
will be much stronger than the
Wolverines have faced at any prev-
ious time this year, several stars on
the various Big Ten teams making
it difficult for the Maize and blue
to cop first places even if the team
as a whole plays good tennis. Illi-
nois should be the chief threat to
the Wolverines, although Chicago
also has a team that may cause
considerable trouble.
Wildcats Not So Strong. +
Northwestern was the only teamj
throughout the year that was able
to defeat the Wolverines during the
dual meet season, but since thatI
date the play of the ,Wildcats has'
fallen off to a great extent. In-
cluded among the teams that havei
bowed to Michigan so far this year
are Illinois, Chicago, Ohio State,1
Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Indiana.
Included in the Michigan dele-
gation will be Captain Hammer,;
Brace, Ryan, Rollin Clark, Roberti
Clarke, and Beal. These men have
borne the brunt of the Wolverine
attack all through the campaign
and are the best bets to win places
for the Michigan team at Chicago.
These same six men will also take
part in the doubles play..
Illinois Looks Dangerous.
Illinois, the pre-season favorite!
to take both the dual and Big Ten
titles, will have several good men'
that 1will bear watching in the1
meet. Turner, Topper, Thompson,!
Traynor, McElroy, and Miller are
the six men that comprise theIll-ini
squad, every one of these min be-
ing dangerous to the chanc s of
the Wolverines of copping the Con-
ference title.
