Netters Hope For Big Season
As Tobin Returns In Top Shape

Courtright Faces Task
Of Building New Team
Only Two Experienced Golfers Remain
From Last Year's Successful Squad

Michigan tennis followers and
Coach Leroy Weir are looking for-
ward to his most successful cam-
paign next spring.
Best news of all is that Captain-
elect Jim Tobin will be back in top
shape. After winning the No. 2
championship of the Big Ten his
'sophomore year, Tobin was expected
to carry plenty of slack last spring.
But Jim twisted his knee before the
season started and played with an
elastic support throughout. His ef-
ficiency was impaired, and at the
season's conclusion it was announced
that he would undergo an operation
to remedy the situation.
So, it was with extreme pleasure'
that Coach Weir learned of Tobin's

successful operation, and his subse-
quent fine showing in a recent De-
troit tournament.
Very pleasant to consider too is
the fact that six of this year's letter
men are, expected to return. They
are: juniors Wayne Stille and Tom
Gamon, and seniors Harry Kohl, Bob
Brewer, Bud Dober and Jim Porter.
Lawton Hammett, junior, who was
ineligible last year, will also be back
ready to play. Hammett was con-
sidered to be the finest freshman
prospect to.hit the Ann Arbor cam-
pus in years, and his return will im-
measurably aid. the Wolverines in
their quest for the Big Ten title.
To make the picture even rosier,
Coach Weir concedes the fact that
three men up from his freshman
squad have a better than even
chance to make the team. They are
Roy Bradley, Emory Freeman and
Gerald Schaflander.
Thus it's not too difficult to name
the Wolverine netters as a strong ti-
tle contender in the winter books.

Michigan's golf squad, which fin-
ished second to Illinois in the Bigd
Ten race last spring and completed
the season undefeated in 11 dual1
matches, will not find the path so
rosy this year.
It was a team made up of five
seniors that Coach Ray Courtright
used so successfully throughout the
1940 campaign. Led by Capt. BobI
Palmer and the diminutive Jack Em-
ery, the entire quintet of par-smash-e
ers was purged by graduation.
In addition to Palmer and Emery
there was Tom Tussing, Bill Black
and Lynn Riess, a junior scholastic-
ally but through with Big Ten com-

This year's aggregation will be
built around Capt.-elect GoodwinG
Clark, Hinsdale, Ill. junior, who
broke into the varsity lineup as a'
sophomore and was instrumental in

The quiet, cool-headed Clark was
inserted into the Indiana match last
April when Emery was unable to
make the trip, and from then on
made a name for himself with re-
peated victories over the best in the
Conference. He lost but one match,
that one to Ralph Kortgec of Mich-
igan State in the final contest of
the season.
Dave Osler, an Ann Arbor boy, is
the only other experienced winner
Courtright has for his team. Fred
Dannenfelser, reserve for two sea-
sons, will be back in addition to
John Barr, who saw action last sea-

It will, of course, be a tough job
to mold a team that can emulate the
'40 squad, but the picture isn't as
dark as it may seem. Coach Thomas
C. Trueblood found a smooth swing-
ing group of freshmen and drilled
them hard during the year.
Bob Fife and Ben Smith were two

of the best' mashie wielders True-
blood fbund. Then there's Walt
Schmidt, who was banging them
high and hard, Bud Arnold, Ralph
Harbert, Jim Wolfe and Morrie Boas.
Dick James, Flint sophomore who
dominated play in the Flint district
tournaments this summer, may get
a chance to earn his letter. His
brother, Cliff, a reserve for two years,
is also expected to give Michigan
more strength for the campaign.
