the squad an impressive mark.
Surprising strength was shownj

Riess and Tom Tussing may be ex-
pected to see considerable action
during the rest of the season.
Defeat Tennessee
Opening the tour against Tenne-
see, the Wolverines chalked up 13
points in individual matches and
seven in the foursomes to win 20-7.
Bill Barclay, playing the number one'
position was the only one to be de-
feated in the singles when Tommy
Michales shot a two under par 72 to
take three points from him.
Michigan was handed what might
be termed a slight setback at the
hands of Clemson College the next
day. The match, in which Michi-
gan was the favorite, ended in a
9-9 tie.

gan again came back and paced by

Georgians 221/2 - 131/2. Riess and

Friday by Vanderbilt, 91/2 - 81/2.
Against Cincinnati Saturday Michi-
gan returned to form and won hand-

ily 12-6.
Michigan's Varsity tennis squad,
back from its first spring tour in
Wolverine history, took it easy yes-

Leroy Weir, genial new mentor this
season, was well-satisfied with the
early showing of three wins in the
five match schedule.
Beat Richmond
The eight-man squad beat the
University of Richmond team, 8-1,
lost to V.M.I. 3-6, were swamped by
the University of Virginia 9-0, and
took Western Maryland and Du-
quesne, both by 8-1 scores.
In the opening day, against Rich-
mond, practically every man coasted
through his match. With the ex-
ception of Capt. Neil Levenson's de-
feat, and Levenson and Don Percivals

bracket, the squad won in straight
Cohen Sole Loser
The V.M.I. defeat was the hardest
of the two losses for the squad to
take. Two important matches spelled
the difference. In the singles, Per-
cival picked off his opponent 6-4
in the first set, faded in the second,
and was outlasted in a grueling third
10-8. In the doubles he and Slat-
tery lost in a close three set match.
Against Maryland, Hank Cohen was
the sole loser, dropping his sixth spot
singles in three sets. In both this
match and the one with Duquesne
the Wolverines took all their matches
except one singles match in straight

Doug hayes Pulls A Leg Muscle


Doug Hayes, Michigan's number
one quarter miler, was removed from
action yesterday afternoon as the re-
sult of a pulled leg muscle sustained
in practice.
Dr. Carpenter, team physician
gave two weeks as the minimum
length of time which must elapse be-
fore Haye's leg will have healed
enough to allow him to compete
again but stated that the nature -of
the injury might necessitate a long- I
er lay-off.
It is certain that the tow-headed
middle distance ace will be unavail-
able for both the quadrangular meet
Saturday at Bfoomington with Pur-1
due, Indiana and Notre Dame andI
the Penn Relays classic the follow-
ing week.
The loss of Hayes considerably
weakened the Hoyt forces and it ap-
peared yesterday that Stan Kelley,
Wolverine hurdle star, would fall
heir to Hayes' spot on the one-mile
relay foursome where he will collab-
orate with Ross Faulkner, Harvey
Clarke and either Waldo Abbot or
Bill Aigler.
During the indoor season Hayes, a

junior, was the year's surprise run-
ner. He had failed to letter last year
at the 880 and mile distances. This
year, due to the urgent need for 440
men, he was shifted to the shorter
distance w h e r e he immediately
flashed to the front.
The peak of his astounding 'climb
came at the Big Ten indoor meet
when he nosed out George Halcrow,
outdoor 440 champion, in the pre-
lims and went on in the finals to
place fourth close up behind Teufel
of Iowa, Howells of O.S.U. and Mil-
ler of Indiana all outstanding and
more experienced performers.
