Tilden, Vines, And Troupe Here Tonight In Tennis Exhi


Big Bill Again
Leads His Show

Plays Here Tonight

Chapin Assisting Former
National Champions
Tilden Meets Vines

Science Atuditoritin
Big Bill Tilden and his entourage
of professional tennis players return
to Ann Arbor tonight after a year's
absence to give an exhibition of their
game in a series of matches at the
Intramural building. The first sin-
gles match will begin promptly at
7:30. Tilden will oppose Ellsworth
Vines in one setto, while Alfred Cha-
pin will meet Keith Gledhill in the
second affair. Then the players will
pair up for a doubles match.
Players come and players go, but
William, the Second, goes on forever.
In last year's demonstration, Karl
Kozeluh, Hungarian champion, Bruce
Barnes, and Emmet Pare were the
accompanists of the master. This
year, two youngsters, Gledhill and
Vines, both of California, and the
veteran Chapin will compose the sup-
porting cast.
Ever since Tilden turned profes-
sional to be followed by Vines and
various others, the sport of the men
who make a living out of the game
has taken a decided upswing. The
U.S.L.T.A. will not hold out for long
against the rising demand for an
"open" tournament in which both
amateurs and pros can participate.
As a special feature of the exhibi-
tion, and in the nature of a prologue,1
Ellsworth Vines will lecture for an
hour at the Natural Science Audi-
torium on the subject of "Tennis
Strategy." He will begin his talk
at 4:15 and the public will be admit-
ted free of charge. For the first part
of his speech, he will be questioned by
his manager, and later will address
the audience on proper foot work
and stroking.
The players will bring along their
own special court and net which will
be laid out on the floor of the In-
tramural gymnasium. Arrangements
have been made to handle a capacity
crowd. General admission will be
$1.00, while for students the price
will be reduced to 75 cents.
Wolverines cross country teams
have won a Big Ten title on but one
occasion. In 1922 the harrier team
led the Conference pack for the first
and only time.

Big Bill Tilden, former king of the
amateur 'tennis world and now a pro-
fessional, brings his entourage of ex-
amateur stars to the Intramural
Building tonight. Tilden will meet
Ellsworth Vines, also a former na-
tional champion, in the feature
Tennis Team.

Those who will make th trip in the
order of ranking are Dan Kean, Joe
Appelt, Seymour Siegel, Howard

The Wolverines will be out to win
their first major contest of the year,
but the Western State netters, unde-
feated so far this year and with a
grand slam over Notre Dame tucked
away, will present the toughest op-
position that the local lads have had
to face all year.
The Teachers will line up with
Captain Ben Laevin and Maurice Gla-
ser, in their third year of competi-
tion, Max Gurman, in his second, and
Andy Pepa, playing his first year as
a sophomore. The doubles combina-
tions will be Laevin-Gurman and

OUTSTANDING in the sports cal-
endar for this day is the Tilden-
Vines tennis exhibition set for seven-
thirty in the Intramural Building. The
supporting cast will be Roy Chapin
and Keith Gledhill.
If you have a desire to see tennis
of such caliber that court strategy
rather than mere care in stroking is
the deciding factor in each point,
come and have a look. The tennis dis-
played will be at least as good as any
that is now being played indoors, an-
ateur or professional.
The opponents of William T. Til-
den's younger days spent as a cham-
pion in amateur tennis have largely
faded from the roster. "Big Bill" re-
mains, smoothly stroking that ball
with most of the old-time accuracy
and crispness, so they say, if not all
of it. Ellsworth Vines, possessor of
one of the most effective flat fore-
hand drives in tennis will be a worthy
Come and see Tilden play tennis
with the same attitude that you would
bring to a recital by Fritz Kreisler.
Both of them are artists.

IT IS HARD to shake the confidence
of a youngster in almost every sport.
I see that for days and days now
they have been trying to tell Johnny
Fischer and his colleagues of the
Walker Cup team how tough the St.
Andrews course is, and the young
men just laugh and go out and shoot
the course under par.
That is downright discouraging for
the older guys who have been doing
the telling, but youth is what they
have been after on that team . . .
audacious, chance-taking youth, ready
to gamble on a shot and now they
have got it. Personally, my wishes
are all with the lads who just simply
refuse to scare despite the head-shak-
ings of experts. It's my own idea that
they are going to win that way.


Football Teams
Taper Off For
Sprmng Battle
Cappon Selects Team To'
Face Kipke's Veterans In
Stadium Saturday
Tapering off preparations with
place kicking, dummy scrimmage, and
blackboard talks Coach Harry Kipke
and Franklin Cappon yesterday said
that their Yellow and Blue machines
were ready for the annual spring
football game tomorrow afternoon in
the Stadium.
Kipke sent his veteran Blues
through ,a very light workout which
will be repeated today, in order to
keep the boys from going stale in the
hot weather, while Cappon spent the
afternoon picking a starting line-up
from his squad of 25 men, mostly
Cappon will start Sobsey and Reickj
at the ends; Wright and Maguire,
tackles; Hanshue and Sears, guards;
with Fuog at center. In the back-
field he will have Pillinger at quarter,
Barnett and Amrine at the halves,
and Renaud at fullback. Of this
group only Maguire and Fuog are up-
There is a possibility that Soodik(
may get the call at one of the guards
if he is sufficiently recovered from
injuries received last week. Callou-
ette is conceded a chance to break
into the starting lineup at tackle.
Indications are that Saturday's
game will be one of the openest ever
played in the Stadium. Spring teams
traditionally shoot the works, and
this year, particularly, neither team
appears to have great offensive pow-
eran line will spend the afternoon
er between the tackles. Kipke's vet-

Both teams have attempted to de-
velop capable passing attacks with
the Blues having the edge both in
passers and receivers. Aug to Pata-
nelli appears to be a combination that
will be hard to stop.
