Tennis Squad
To Head South
For Six Meets
Capt. Jim Tobin To Lead
Team Of Eight Men
On SpringInvasion
By DICK SIMON
Here's one for Rgobert Ripley's Be-
lieve-It-Or-Not column. The Michi-
gan tennis team has had a chance to
practice outside before it leaves for
its annual spring southern tour.
Old Jupiter Pluvius took a vaca-
tion long enough for Coach Leroy
Weir's netters to work outside yes-
terday in their last minute prepara-
tions before they leave Tuesday.
Eight Netters To Go
Eight men will be making the tripI
this year ands they are expected to}
meet some tough competition. Cap-
tain Jim Tobin, Lawton Hammett,
Jim Porter, Wayne Stille and Tom
Ganmon will be playing in the first five,
singles positions and either Howie'
Bacon, Jim Bourquin or Alden John-
son will fill number six.
Two doubles teams are already set.
Tobin will pair with Hammett to
form the number one team, and Por-
ter will, play with Stille in the nutn-
ber two slot. Gamon will team up with
one of the three remaining players.
In all probability Weir will give each
of the three a crack at the job.
Six matches are scheduled this
year for the southern campaign
which will find the Wolverines bat-
tling Washington and Lee at Lexing-
ton, Virginia in the opening match
April 12. Virginia Military Institute
will furnish the opposition on April
14 in the same city. The following day
the netmen will meet Wake Forest
at Wake Forest, North Carolina.
Squad To Meet Duke
On April 16 the raquet-wielders
will face a strong North Carolina
squad at Chapel Hill, North Caro-
lina. Weir expects this team to be
the toughest one that will be faced
on-the warm-up jaunt. The next day
the team travels to Durham to meet
the Duke Blue Devils, who whipped
the Wolverines last year, 8-1.
The last leg of the trip will find
Michigan pitted against Virginia in
Charlottesville on April 18. Last year
the Wolverines fell before the Cava-
liers to the tune of 5-3.
Weir, along with the rest of the
team, hopes that they will have fav-
orable weather to get in shape for the
matches with" the Conference teams
which begin the week following
spring vacation. Last year the team
played only two matches and lost
both of them.

Joe Louis Will Meet Tony Musto
Tonight In Monthly Title Defense

ST. LOUIS, April 7.-(IP)-The Joet
Louis spring carnival, playing one
night stands up and down the coun-
tryside, stops off here tomorrow night
to put on its display of fisticuffs
and fireworks for the entertainment
of everyone-except possibly Tony
Musto.
The Brown Bomber "risks" his
world heavyweight championship at
9:30 p.m. (Central Standard Time)
in the arena against the short-sized
slugger from Chicago, whose only
chance to escape what happened to
Al McCoy, Red Burman, Gus Dorazio,;
and Abe Simon this season is said
to lie in a squat, crouching style
and a somewhat better than fair
punch.
All kinds of attendance and gate
receipt records for St. Louis fistic
festivals are expected to be broken,
despite the fact no one but squat
Tony has even the faintest idea he'll
either last the full 15 rounds or win
the fight.
Mike Jacobs, the New York impre-
sario who is co-promoting this fuss
with Tom Packs, joyfnlly estimates
there will be more than 20,000 fans on
hand for the party, and they'll pay
a total of $55,000. Up to now the prev-
ious high for St. Louis was hit in
1930, when 18,130 customers con-
tributed $48,000 to the see the local
unveiling of Primo Carnera.
There was virtually no betting onj

the outcome of tomorrow's titanic
;i'uggle. The general impression was
,hat Louis would end the fight in
css than five rounds. This corner fig-
;res it'll be' all over around the third
3r fourth. Anything under 9 minutes
and 48 seconds will be better than par
or the course for Joe; That's the
tverage he has mnintained since win-
aing the title from Jim Braddock in
1937.
The fight will be broadcast on the
NBC blue network.
The Cold Facts

AAU Scoring
Stops Matmell
:Deane, Becker, Unbeaten
Yet Fail To Gain Titles
Though they failed to bring home
any-title from the National AAU
Wrestling Meet held in Detroit this
past weekend, the University grap-
plers did much better than the final
summaries indicate. A unique scoring
system kept several of the Wolverines
from the laurels that might have been
theirs.
Ray Deane, varsity wrestler, went
through all his matches undefeat-
ed, including the final in which he
decisioned Martin Span of Cleveland.'
But since Span had won all of his!
previous matches by pinning his op-
ponents, he had fewer points against
him than Deane, and consequently!I
was awarded the 134-pound title,
while his conqueror, Ray Deane took
second place.
In the 158-pound class, Mary Beck-
er went through a similar experience,
in that he bested Co-captain Benny
Riggs of Michigan State in the finals,
yet Becker failed to place and Riggs
was named champion, through the
point system. John Wilson, the only
other Wolverine to threaten the lead-
ers, took a second place in the heavy-
weight division.

Gopher Publicity Release States
Football Team Tough As Ever

By BUD HENDEL
Posted on the bulletin board of
Yost Field House is a greeting, and
warning, to the University of Michi-
gan football team from the lair of
the Golden Gopher of Minnesota.
It's a publicity release from the
spring football camp of Bernie Bier-
man's charges in Minneapolis. And
every Wolverine gridder has seen it
as it flaunts its challenge for grid-
iron supremacy to one and all.
Gophers Optimistic
For the Big Ten pigskin champs of
11940 are expecting to be just as
strong this coming season as they
were during the last campaign. The
drums have already started to beat
for the men of Minnesota. According
to the release from the Gopher publi-
city office, a wave of optimism pre-
vails in the headquarters of the West-
ern Conference football titleholders.
The release claims that Minnesota's

mentor, Bernie Bierman is well
pleased over the prospects of the Min-
neapolis school's strength for the next
football season. Twenty-three letter-
men are returning from last year's
championship squad to form a strong
nucleus for Bierman to work with.
Also, the Gopher coach is looking for-
ward to a good showing from the men
up from a strong freshman team of
last fall.
Wolverines Remember Defeat
And all this is one of the big rea-
sons for the fire in the eyes of the
Michigan gridmen as Coach Fritz
Crisler conducts the Wolverine spring
drills at Ferry Field. Last year's 7-61
defeat at the hands of the Golden
Gophers still rankles in every heart.
That was the game which dashed
the title hopes of the Wolverines. On
a muddy field the Michigan huskies
completely outplayed the Gophers,
only to be beaten by Minnesota's lone
thrust of the day an eighty yard
touchdown run by Bruce Smith and{
a wellaimed extra point by tiny Joe
Mernik. Final score, 7-6, in favor of
Minnesota.
So in spite of chilly winds, mud, and
rain the Michigan footballers aren't
lacking in spirit as they go through.

Fulton, who has yielded only two
runs in 11 innings of work, is the
Terps' chief threat. Lettermen Max
Hunt and Art Woodward, both right-
handers, are the other pitchers who
will be ready to face the Wolverines.
The rest of the squad includes three
lettermen and only one sophomore,
catcher Kenny Bransdorf.

season, having lost their four top
hitters. Most missed will be George
Stirnweiss, now covering second bIas
for the Newark Bears. Stirnweiss and
shortstop Matty Tompkins, also gone,
formed the best keystone combination
in the South last year. Back for ser-
vice are co-captains Charlie Rich,
third baseman, and Ben Browning,
first sacker. Outfielder Al Mathcs and
receiver Claude Myers are also hold-
overs from the Tar 1eels team that
downed Michigan 15-12 last spring.
John Cheshire, a left-hander, Hank
Feimster and Red Benton top the
