Netters Rout Wisconsin
in Big TenOpener, 9-0
Haminmett Scores Upset Triumph Over Badger Ace
In ThreeSets; Team To Play Illini Today

(Special to The Daily){
EVANSTON, Ill., April 23.-Michi-
gan's mighty tennis team opened its
Big Ten title defense in a blaze. of
glory today, swamping Wisconsin, 9-0.
Undoubtedly the most outstanding
feature of the meet was the play of
Co-Capt. Lawton Hammett: Ham-
mett, decidedly on the short end of
the odds in his match with the Bad-
ger captain, Sherwood Gorenstein,
came from behind to score a stun-
ning upset, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3. Gorenstein
is the same fellow who last year beat
Wolverine Captain Jim Tobin and in
the Conference meet lost in the finals
to Seymour Greenberg only after ex-
tending him to three deuce sets.-
Hammett Is Hot
Hammett played probably the best
tennis in his life today in copping
the number one singles. He con-
stantly forced the play with hard

smashes and a strong net game. Oc-
casional drop shots and lobs caught
Gorenstein flat-footed and his deep
drives from the baseline were very
effective. If today's play is any cri-
terion Hammett will give GreenbergI
plenty of trouble when they meet
later in the season.
The number two singles typified the
play of the afternoon in which the
Wolverines were only twice extended
to three sets. Jim Porter had little
trouble disposing of the second-best
the Badgers could offer, Don Bee-
mis, 6-2, 6-2.
Stille Has Trouble
In the third bracket Co-Capt.
Wayne Stille came up with a stub-
born foe in Bob Bruce who carried
him to 6-4, and 8-6, before suc-
cumbing. Tom Gamon nosed out
Armie Schudson, 4-6, 6-0, 6-1.
Schaflander got his first victory
of the season with a 6-4, 6-2 triumph
over Chet Barrand and "Jinx"
Johnson, steadier and cagier than
ever, took the measure of John Davis
by the same score.
Coach Weir's switching of the
doubles' combination worked very
satisfactorily. Hammett and Stille
won easily in the number one slot,
6-3, 6-0, while Porter and Schaf-
lander raced through their number
two match. 6-0, 6-2. In the third
doubles Gamon and Johnson showed
that they are still the class of the
Conference by defeating their foes,
6-4, 6-4, to remain undefeated.
Tomorrow Michigan faces an Illi-
nois team that barely lost to thel
powerful Notre Dame squad, 5-4.

gan he gave up one lone hit in the
three innings he worked.
None of the teams Boim or Fish-
man faced were up to Big Ten cali-
ber, so their showing against Purdue
will be their first real test of the
season.
Michigan apparently hasn't lost any
of that batting power that was so
annoying to Conference pitchers last
year, because eight Wolverines are
hiting .300 or better.
Leading the Wolverine batting at-
tack is sophomore Don Robinson. The
sparkling shortstop is hitting the sen-'
sational average of .600 and from the
way he's been going lately he'll have
that percentage when the season is
over.
Catcher Walt Smith of the Boiler-
makers is the heaviest hitter on the
Purdue club with an average of .500.
Wolverine George Harms and Smith
are called by most Big Ten coaches
the best back stoppers in the Con-
ference.
Fisher put the Varsity through
lengthy batting and fielding drills
yesterday afternoon in an effort to
see that the boys take as much ad-
vantage of the recent warm weather
as possible.
Purdue has played eight games
this season, winning five and losing
three. Their latest triumph was a
10-6 victory over Wabash.

Cinder Season Gets Underway
In Annual Meet At Des Moines

AMERICAN LEAGUE,

(Continued from Page 1)
for the Penn Relays at Philadelphia
today and tomorrow.
Much of the Wolverine track fans'
interest will center around the mile
relay event, with Michigan's quartet
standing a very good chance of up-
setting the dope sheets by sweeping
to a win over its favored opponents.
The Wolverin baton-passing quar-
tet, composed of Buel Morley, George
Pettersen, Al Thomas, and Bob Ufer,
copped the Big Ten indoor mile relay
title in the Conference champion-
ships last month with a fast 3:22
clocking, but will be encountering
faster opposition at Drake than it
faced in the Big Ten meet.
Aggies Threaten
The 'Oklahoma Aggies, competing
in the Kansas Relays last Saturday,
ran home with the mile-relay title,
turning in a time of 3:21.2. Michi-
gan, with Johnny Kautz running the
second leg in place of Pettersen, bet-
tereJ this mark by two-tenths of a
second during the indoor season
when the quartet finished ahead of

Will Go To Navy Soon
Out of the vast world of rumor,
speculation and doubt came another
story yesterday concerning the im-
mediate departure of Coach Fritz
Crisler, Wolverine football mentor,
for duty at the Great Lakes Naval
Training Station.
According to this unfounded tale,
Crisler and backfield coach Earl Mar-
tineau were to leave today to take
up the grid tutoring chores at the
Illinois Naval plant. But Crisler him-
self spiked the rumor with a terse
laugh and a brief statement.
Said the molder of Michigan grid-
men, "You can mark that down as
another idle rumor. If I were to
leave tomorrow, I certainly would
have made plans before this." Which
I is just another way of saying that
whether or not Crisler will be here
or at Great Lakes next fall is still
an undecided issue.

dual meet record. Kautz will prob-
ably be called on to run in the two-
mile and four-mile relays over this
week-end, however, so that much of
Michigan's chances for victory de-
pend on what men Doherty selects
to comprise each relay team.
Something new will be added for
the Wolverines in today's Drake meet
when they take part in the shuttle
relay, a high-hurdle event, with each
member of the four-man crew run-
ning the 120-yard course. Never hav-
ing had four high-hurdlers of suf-
ficient ability in the past, Michigan
has never entered this event before,
but today Frank McCarthy, Livius
Stroia, Joe Lahey, and Bud Byerley
will attempt to add a place in this
event to the team score.
Individuals Compete
Only one Drake Relays title from
last year lies in the Wolverine tro-
phy-case now and much of the Mich-
igan power will be put forth in an
effort to retain this four-mile relay
crown. With more capable sprinters
than distance men on the present
squad, however, the Wolverines are
expected to make their best showing
in the sprint relays today.
Besides the baton-passing teams
entered in the relay events, several
individual stars will also be compet-
ing under the Michigan banner today.
George Ostroot will get his first trials
of the year at discus-throwing, as
well as taking care of his usual stint
in the shot put. McCarthy, the Wol-
verines' most versatile star, is entered
in the 120-yard high hurdles, the
broad jump, and the high jump.
Johnny Wise will get his big chance
in the javelin throw, and Bob Segula
is slated to uphold the Michigan
pole-vaulting activities.
Football Ticket
Price Changed
$2.50 General Admission
Is Home Game Charge
Adoption of a uniform ticket price
of $2.50 plus federal tax per game
for all except box seats in the huge
Michigan stadium was announced
yesterday by H. O, Crisler, Director
of Athletics.
If there is no change in the tax,
single game tickets will sell for $2.75
and box seats will go on sale at $3.00
plus tax. This new ticket price was
approved by the Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics.
Season tickets for all seven home
games will sell for $15.40 each. The
second type of season tickets to go
on sale, for the five games against
college foes but not including the
battles with the two service elevens
from Great Lakes and Iowa, will be
sold for $11.00.
Ticket orders will be accepted on
and after August 1, Crisler said.
Michigan's 1942 home schedule in-
cludes Great Lakes, Sept. 26; Michi-
gan State, Oct. 3; Iowa Naval Cadets,
Oct. 10; Northwestern, Oct. 17; Illi-
nois, Oct. 31; Harvard, Nov. 7; and
Iowa, Nov. 28.
Crisler also anounced that service
men in the nation's armed forces
who appear at the stadium in uni-
form will be admitted to each game
for 50 cents plus tax. This is similar
to the policy followed here last year
when Michigan led the nation's col-
leges in offering a special ticket price
for service men.
