After Opening
Conference Win
Wolverine Tenis Squad
Meets Green Chicago
Team In Windy City'
By ART HILL
A strong Varsity tennis squad left
Ann Arbor at 4 p.m. yesterday, bound
for Chicago where it will tangle this
afternoon with the University of Chi-
cago netters, Big Ten runners-up last
spring.
The Michigan squad, which won
five out of six contests during its
spring vacation Southern trip, is an
unknown quantity as far as the Con-
ference is concerned but Coach Le-
roy Weir is hopeful that his boys
can make a definite improvement
over the fourth place which they took
last year at the Conference meet.
The Maroons will have only one
letter-winner to count on in today's
bid for their first Conference win.
The lone returning veteran is Cal
Sawyier, who won the number 3
bracket championship last season.
Sawyier will meet Michigan's Capt.
Jim Tobin in the number one singles
match today.
In the second bracket, Weir will use
Lawton Hammett against Chicago's
diminutive sophomore,, Walt Keme-
tick. Kemetick, who stands only 5
feet 7 inches tall and tips the To-
ledo at 145 pounds, displayed some
brilliant tennis in pre-season work-
outs which earned him the right to
take over the second position.
Number Three Man Jim Porter will
try his unorthodox switch style of
play against Bob Lifton of the Ma-
roons who was runner-up for Big
Ten honors in the fifth bracket.
In the fourth singles match of the
afternoon, the - Wolverines' colorful
Wayne Stille will match his blister-
ing service against Bill Self, the sec-
ond sophomore on the Chicago squad.
Dave Martin of Chicago will play
at number five against Michigan's
dependable Tom Gamon and the last
singles match will see Alden Johnson
of Michigan pitted against Jimmy
Hill of the Midway outfit.
In the doubles, the sensational
Michigan duo of Tobin and Hammett
will get its first test under fire against
Sawyier and Kemetick. The second
doubles match will pair Stille and
Porter of the Wolverines against Self
and Lifton while Gamon and Howie
Bacon will battle Chicago's Dave
Martin and Bob Weedfall in the af-
ternoon's final match.

Golfers Prep
For Spartan
Home Opener
By LYONS HOWLAND
Coach Ray Courtright's dark horse
golf squad will open its home season
tomorrow when the Wolverines face
Michigan State's invading forces on
the expansive University Golf Course.
The Wolverines go into battle fav-
ored by both this and last year's
record. Meeting Michigan State on
two occasions last year, Michigan
trounced the Spartans by a 15 to 3
score the first time, but did not fare
so well in the second match later
in the season, Michigan State manag-
ing to eke out the only tie Michigan
had all year.
As far as this year's records are
concerned, both teams have fared
well enough to make the match an
interesting one. The Spartans with
very little preparation lost to Ohio
State early this season, and then the
Wolverines defeated Ohio State. But
Michigan State has had time for
practice since then, so this is not as
favorable a point for the Wolverines
as it would seem.
Coach Courtright expects to choose
his starting squad from the team he
took on the southern trip. Likely
contenders for this berth are Cap-
tain Fred Dannenfelser, Ben Smith,
Dave Osler, John Barr, and Bob Fife.
Others who will probably get the
call to play are John Leidy, Chandler
Simonds, Dave Ladd, and Ken Cald-
er.
Ben Van Alstyne, Michigan State
coach, will come with a squad bol-
stered by three dangerous veterans
in the persons of Stanley Kowal, Bill
Zylstra, and Ralph Kortge. Kowal has
won two major letters and has qual-
ified in the National Intercollegiates
for the past two years. Zylstra quali-
fied in the semifinals of the Michigan
Amateur Championship last summer.
Kortge was runnerup in last year's
Central Michigan Golf Association
tournament.
Courtright is a little on the op-
timistic side as he considers Michi-
gan's chances against the dangerous
Spartans. "However,". he says, "even
though our record is in our favor,
State has a potentially dangerous
team, and anything is liable to hap-
pen."

To Start On Mound

Ace right-hander Mickey Stod-
dard will take the mound for Mich-
igan against Chicago this afternoon
as the Wolverines open their West-
ern Conference season. Stoddard
won three games while dropping
none during the Southern trip, de-
feating Navy, Maryland and Vir-
ginia.
Bridges, Croucher
Pace Tigers To 4-2
Win Over Browns
DETROIT, April 24.--(/P)-Free on-
ly for a day from a hitting slump,
the Detroit Tigers scraped up just
five safe blows against the St. Louis
Browns today but, thanks to Frankie
Croucher and Tommy Bridges, they
were enough to win, 4 to 2.
Bridges, after some minor troubles
in the early innings, turned in a
masterpiece while Croucher, promot-
ed yesterday from the bench.to reg-
ular shortstop, saved the battle for
Tommy with a two-run triple in the
sixth.
In avenging the season opener de-
feat by the Browns, the Tigers ran
into a big job because Vern Kennedy,
although wild, was plenty tough for
the seven innings he worked and
Johnny Allen was no easier in the
one remaining frame.

Baseball Team
Opens Big Ten
Season Today'
Stoddard To Take Mound
In First Game Of Two
Against Maroon Team
(Continued from Page 1)
graduated from a relief role last year
to a starting job on this year's ques-
tion-mark pitching staff, and at pres-
ent leads the moundsmen with three
wins to his credit, all against southern
teams. Southpaws Mase Gould and
Neil Muir, both of whom saw services
in the Notre Dame game, will be in
reserve.
Coach Kyle Anderson's Maroon
squad, touted as the best team to
come out of the Midway in several
years in the pre-season dope, has a
1record of one win against four losses
this season. They split a pair of con-
tests with DePauw in their openers,
dropped a 17-10 slugfest to Notre
Dame and lost twice to Northwestern,
4-0 and 11-4. The Wildcats staged
a nine-run rally in the last two
frames to lick Chicago Tuesday.
Meyer Is Control Pitcher
Meyer, a sophomore righthander,
was credited with the Maroons' only
win, a 9-6 decision over DePauw.
Lacking speed, he depends largely on
hairline control for effectiveness.
Coach Anderson will save Lopatka,
also a right-hander and strictly a
fast-baller, to throw against the Wol-
verines Saturday. Ken Garverick, a
junior, and sophomore Rodney Briggs,
both righthanders, will be available
for relief duty.
The rest of the Chicago squaei
shapes up as a weak defensive outfit
with fair power at the plate. When
Lop atka is not pitching he goes in
at center field with yearling Nick
Paresi in left and Aaron Manders,
leading hitter on the squad last ye ar,
in right. Bob C. Miller goes to ?eft
and Paresi moves to center wthen
Lopatka is on the mound.
Fons Recovered From Injury
The infield lines up with Jack Fons
at third, Earl Shanken at short, Sy
Hirschberg on second and Bill Oost-
enbrug at first. Fons was out of the
lineup for the Northwestern series
with a sprained ankle, but is expect-
ed to be ready to go today. Ken Jen-
sen will cover the hot corner if Fons
is still benched. The heavy-hitting
George Basich will be behind the
plate.
Fisher will start the same lineup
that faced Notre Dame Tuesday with
the exception of Stoddard on the hill.
The Wolverine mentor decided to
hope for a return to hitting form
rather than experiment with a jug-
gled batting order.
.l* * *
The lineups:

Wolverines Prepared To Face
Strong Field In Relay Carnival
-- '

(Continuedafrom Page 1)
ed by Notre Deimne, the same. quartet
which puished the Wolverines to a
new Field House standard in the
Michigan AAU's. Defending cham-
pions in the !event, the Maize and
Blue combin atioh will have to hit
close to 3:111x, however, to win from
the Irish and a powerful Texas team.
Strongest/ opposition for the Wol-
verines' crae.ck two-mile relay quartet
will proba fly come from the home
town Dralce University team and a
promising / Ohio State outfit. Run-
ning for the Dohertymen will be soph-
omore D ve Matthews, Jack Dobson,'
Johnny Kautz and Warren Breiden-
bach.
T exas Favored In Medley
A great Longhorn fourhome from
Texas has been accorded a heavy
edge 'in the sprint medley because
of its world record breaking perform-
ance in the recent Texas Relays. Doh-
erty will pit a strong team of LeuL-
tritz,. Bud Piel, Al Thomas and Breid-
enbch against the Texans, but it is
doubtful if the Wolverines can over-
corae their tremendous sprint aces
and Detroit sophomore Mac Um-
stdt's blistering half-mile race.
:Notre Dame, Wisconsin and Kansas
will all send very strong relay teams
a fter the four-mile crown, with Mich-
M an's quartet of Bill Ackerman, John
Purdue, Herb Leake, and Karl Wis-
ner rated only average.sp The first
three Wolverines will also perform

along with junior Bill Dobson in the
distance medley also, while Piel,
Thomas, Bob Reutter and Chuck Don-
ahey will bid for honors in the 880-
yard relay.
Terry Is Sprint Ace
In the individual events, Michigan's
performers appear to be outclassed
by the top-notch field. Wolverine
sprinters will come up against some
of the nation's finest in the 100-
yard dash when they face Texas'
Carlton Terry who blazed the cen-
tury in 9.4 seconds in the Kansas
Relays, Minnesota's George Franck,
Big Ten champion, and Iorthwest-
ern's Myron Piker, former titleholder.
Husky Frank McCarthy will see ac-
tion in the broad jump and the high
hurdles, while senior 'Bob Hook will
buck Blozis in the shot put and Tex-
as' invincible Jack Hughes in the
discus. Karl Wisner is slated to bid
for the two-mile title which Schwarz-
kopf took last year, and sophomore
John Wise will throw the javelin in
his initial varsity appearance.

Bob Westfall, 1941 grid captain and
fullback, dropped off Coach Ray
Fisher's Varsity baseball squad Wed-
nesday with the announcement that
he wanted to give more time to his
studies and join his mates in spring
grid practice.
Westfall made the southern train-
ing trip with the diamond squad as
a reserve outfielder, and saw service
in three 'contests, getting two hits
in 12 times at bat for an average of
.167. He had been switched to the
outfield from the catching staff,
where he had been a reserve last
year, to take advantage of his speed.
