For those who are especially in-

performance of the day, a brilliant
75: In the morning foursomes he
paired with Gene Hand to annihi-
late Kline and Littell under an
avalanche of birdies and pars to
the tune of 3-0. And in the after-
noon, at which time he turned in
his spectacular card, he also white-
washed his Maroon opponent.
Lenfesty Gets Revenge.
In the other singles matches,
Lenfesty turned the tables on Boh-
nen, revenging himself in part for
the defeat suffered in the morning,
to garner 2i2 points while the lanky
Bohnen was halving one nine for
the other half point.
Gene Hand, the Bay City youth
who has been cutting a wide swath
in Conference circles since his ad-
dition to the squad, disposed of
Littell 2/ to %, after a slow start
which could only gain him a halve
on the first nine. At the turn, he
suddenly found himself and stag-
gered 'old man Par' repeatedly to

experienced opponent to cope. with.
Jolly Replaces Howard.
Contrary to his pre-match expec-
tations, Coach Trueblood withdrew
Johnny Howard from the lineup in
the afternoon, placing Jolly in his
stead. The young Upper Peninsula
youth fully justified his coach',
choice by annexing all three ports
of his match with Prest.
After completion of the match,
the Wolverine squad left imiedi-
ately for Urbana, where they are
slated to meet the strong University
of Illinois outfit at the Urba
Country Club on Saturday. A day
of practice in preparation for the
meet is in order, but Coach True-
blood will probably not allow his
men to attempt more than 18 holes.
A win over Illinois would prac-
tically assure the Maize and Slue
of an undefeated dual meet seaso,
since Minnesota, the only remai-
ing team on the schedule is not as
strong as they have been in years
past and are conceded little chance
against the fast moving Wolverines.
