Michigan's netters have won their
last eight duel meets, sweeping
through all Conference opponents.
Their last defeat was received from
Notre Dame..
In the drawings late last night,
Michigan received seedings in every
spot but the number one and two
singles. This alone indicates the
power of the Wolverines. If Michi-
gan is able to sweep through its num-
ber two and three doubles matches
against the -Maroons today, it will
drop Chicago out of the running for
the crown.
The pairings for today's matches
are as follows: Singles: Hammett vs.
Sawyier (Chi.); Porter vs. Jakes
(NW); Stille vs. Harbreckt (OSU);
Schaflander vs. Sarran (Wis.) ;
Gamon vs. Silgen (Minn.); Johnson
vs. Burst (NW). Doubles: Hammett-

T'S GOING TO BE a, long and vital
weekend for Michigan athletics,'
the longest and most vital on the
entire spring sports calendar.
The Wolverine tennis team will
start it off in Columbus today, open-
ing its bid to retain its Big Ten net
championship. Tomorrow and Sat-
urday will see the Maize and Blue
track crew attempt to win the West-
ern Conference outdoor track and
field meet at Evanston, despite a
heavy edge in power and speed which
must be conceded to the Buckeyes
of Ohio State. And also listed for
those two days are a two-game base-
ball series with Illinois at Chain-
paign, a series which may Avell de-
termine if Michigan is to repeat as
the Conference titleholder.
Then on Monday and Tuesday
of next week, the scene will shift
to Ann Arbor and Chicago for a
continuation of that important
weekend. In the Windy City on
Monday, the diamond siuad will
meet the Maroons of Chicago in
its only doubleheader of the year.
Here at Ann Arbor, the top links-
men of the Big Ten will flock to
the University Golf Course for the
Conference tournament to be held
both days.
AND OILY when the la,.t fitff of
the last match is el dipped in the
18th hole will that vital weekehd
come to an end. When that hap-
pens, three Conference titles will
have been decided-tennis, track and
golf-and only in tennis is Michigan
favored to win. For those three
Wolverine teams it will be the end of
the athletic year-a chance to regret
past mistakes if they lose, and a
chance to remember glorious tri-
umphs if they win.
T HE BASEBALL aggregatinn will

But, the Conference crown can be

decided this weekend. While the,
Wolverines tangle with Illinois, Ohio
State, tied with Michigan for first
place, will meet a tough Iowa team,
that is still very much in the run-
ning. And not to be counted out are
the Wisconsin Badgers, who will face
Chicago tomorrow and Saturday. If;
one of these teams can make a clean
sweep of its weekend tilts while the;
others split--then that club is the
one to watch in the flag chase.

Nine Improves
In Last Week
Varsity Faces Weekend
Tilts With Confidence
Michigan's rampaging baseball nine,
now tied for the leadership in the
Big Ten Conference, got a well earned
rest this week when their game with
Wayne was called off Tuesday. The
Wolverines went through a long hit-
ting practice yesterday, giving them
the opportunity to sharpen their bat-
ting eyes for the corning series with
Illinois at Champaign tomorrow and
Saturday. The Wolverines will leave
for Champaign at 3 p.m. today.
Coach Ray Fisher 'will send his
team into the tilts with less appre-
hension than he did last week when
the Varsity met Northwestern. At
that time Michigan's ability was a
questionable factor. In games with
Notre Dame and Western Michigan
the Wolverines' 'mound corp was un-
certain and the team went into a
batting slump.
In the games with Northwestern
Michigan finally arrived. With Bud
Chamberlain pacing the attack the
Wolverines came out of their slump
with a bang. Don Robinson, Dave
Nelson, Don Holman and George
Harms all began to hit the ball again,
and when the series ended Fisher's
worries were over as far as power at
the plate was concerned.
To further gladden Fisher's heart,
however, was the showing of his two
hurling stars, Pro Boim and Mickey
Fishman. Boah set dthe Wildcats
down with five'hits and two runs. On
Saturday Fishman surpassed Boim's
good pitching effort with a brilliant
Bobby Stenberg, co-holder with
Wayne Christenson of the second
base position, went down to Detroft
yesterday to take a physical exam for
