Tennis has been like second nature
to Gerry. During his last year at
Central he was ranked ninth nation-
ally in the Junior Ipdoor ratings and
won the Detroit city doubles cham-
pionship by beating Jim Tobin,
Wolverine captain last year. and his
partner in the finals.
With this, his senior year at Mich-
igan rapidly drawing to a close, Gerry
Schaflander is anxiously looking for-
ward to playing his first full season
on a varsity squad. Right now he is
waging a battle with Gamon and
Alden Johnson to see who will play
in the fourth singles spot.
Varsity Lacks
Pitching Talent
Paul White Is Impressive
In Initial Practice Tilt,
thing Varsity coach Ray Fisher
learned from last Friday's practice
game is that he has got to find some
pitchers . . . Although the hurlers he
used were fairly effective in silencing
some of the Michigan big bats, the
"Vermont Wizard" felt that it was
mainly the aid of poor hitters rather
than effective pitching that kept the
score down.
Don Boor, the much talked about
sophomore, has gwven sports writers
a new angle on himself . . . The
heavy hitting first baseman will wear
contact lenses this spring instead of
regular glasses . . . Boor says, "If I
have as much success wearing them
as Bob Ingalls had, I will be more
than satisfied."
The Illini have practically a whole
ball team in Clarence Brunner . . .
The bespectacled junior started out
as a pitcher for Coach Paul (Pooch)
Harrell and has played every position
in the infield and outfield since then.
The Varsity's first claim to fame
this year is that they are the smallest
team in the Big Ten . . . the only
six footer that will probably make the
team is Paul White . . . The River
Rouge slugger led the Wolverines in
hitting in their first practice game
