Fisher Will Start Mickey Fishman At Champaign
As Wolverines Fight To Hold First Place

(Continued from Page 1)
Kautz is another one of the runners
who traveled west in the 'much-
publicized meet to the Pacific Coast.
John runs either the quarter mile or
the 880-yard run. During the indoor
season this last winter he held down
a quarter of the mile relay.
Bill Ackerman holds down the
gruelling mile and two-mile events.
Not a sensational runner, he was
still, however, an important link 'in
the successes of the varsity cinder
squad. Johnny McKean, the last
senior, is also a distance man.
Michigan isn't the only team to
enter seniors in the Big Ten meet.
Four champions of the Conference
spectacle are returning for the last
time to defend their titles. Campbell
Kane of Indiana returns to defend
his crowns in the, mile and half-mile
Bob Wright, Ohio State's sensa-
tional hurdler, returns to reclaim his
titles in the high and low hurdles.
Bob has been going strong in early
spring meets and will undoubtedly
retain his supremacy in the events.

against the last place Maroons in
The Michigan diamond mentor is
not as worried about these games as
he was last weekend when the nine
played Northwestern. In the past
week Bud Chamberlain, Davey Nel-
son and Captain Harms have snap-
ped their batting slumps and are
again hitting the ball hard.
Also adding to the confidence of
Fisher is the sparkling hurling per-
formances turned in last week by his
two aces, Irv 'Pro' B3oim and Mickey
Fishman. They combined to hold the
Wildcats to only six hits and two.
runs last week.
Illini Field Well
However, this weekend they will be
facing a better team when they take
the mound against Coach Walter
Roettger's nine. While they have only
one .300 batter in the lineup, they
have the best fielding average in the
Big Ten and also are known to hit
with men on the base paths.
Although Coach Fisher feels that
Michigan should win both games
from the Illini, he isn't taking them
lightly. He knows that the local boys
have been in a slump lately as they
have dropped their last five battles
and that there isn't anything that
they would like to do more than
knock Michigan out of the title
Tomorrow Fishman will face
Chuck Schiller, a fast-ball pitcher
and Boim is slated to meet Charlie
Campbell in Saturday's tilt. Schil-
ler has a record of four victories and
two defeats this season while Camp-
bell has won three while dropping
Illini Hold Edge
Illinois is the oniy team in the
Big Ten that holds an edge on Michi-
gan as it has beaten the Wolverines
22 times and has lost only 19.
When the Varsity plays Chicago on
Monday Fisher will probably use Bill
Cain and Don Smith on the mound
with Don Savage, Boim and Fish-
man held in reserve. Bob Meyer and
Rodney Briggs will pitch for the woe-
fully weak Maroons.
The Maroons are batting only .162
in eight Conference games and have
the second from the lowest fielding
average on the ten teams. Coach
Fisher can't figure out how the boys
from the Midway (-an manage to beat
his crew. However, the four games
this weekend will be hard on the
team, but Michigan is well rested for

Chi Phi Wins
Softball Crown
From Phi Delts
Williams Downs Fletcher
To Take Dorm Title
And All-Year Crown
It was field day for the spring in-
tramural program yesterday as twor
major softball titles were decided. InN
the fraternity division Chi Phi pow-1
erhoused their way to a thorough
15-5 thumping of the highly vaunted
Phi Delta Theta outfit, while Wil-f
liams House cinched the All Year
Dorm crown in one of the tightest
games of the year against Fletcher
Hall, 6-4.
The Chi Phi-Phi Delt battle was
strictly a nip and tuck affair until
the fifth inning when Ned Atkins,r
hitherto unbeatable in five straight
games, blew high and ended up with
a total of 10 walks to his discredit.-
Pacing the Chi Phi attack were Jack7
Tate with a homer and two singles,
Cliff Strahley with a trio of two bag-7
gers and Ralph Gibert with threek
singles. The most spectacular play
of the day and one of the highlightsI
of the season performed by Jack!
Reed who made an amazing running-
stumbling catch of a ball batted deept
into left field, to quash a budding
Phi Delt rally.
Atkins got the buck in the first
few innings when he walked several
men, but managed to hold the runs
evenly with the Phi Delt scoring.
When Buck Antle, on the mound for
Chi Phi, finally silenced the Phi Delt
bats midway in the game, the bal-
ance went to one side and Atkins
was the loser. Andy Marsh got two]
hits to lead the attack for the Phi
Delts. It was Howie Fisher all thei
way for Williams as they nosed their
way to victory over a stubborn Flet-
cher team. Fisher held his oppon-
ents to five hits in the seven innings;
he faced them besides driving in three
runs. The win was Fisher's fifth
straight this year.
Fletcher was leading up till the
fifth when Williams, led by Fisher
and Howie Ideson at the plate, put
on a slow-sure rally to overcome the
disadvantage and romp home with
the game, the title and the All Year
By winning the diaiond cham-
pionship, Chi Phi also cinched sec-
ond place in the All Year standings
of the Greek League.

Wolverine Netters Wins
Four Seven Matches
Weirmen Must Overtake Northwestern And Chicago
To Annex Big Ten Championship At Evanston

Golfers To Meet Illini Saturday
After Week Of Disappointments

(Continued from Page 1)
their four points today. In the singles
Wayne Stille, Gerry Schaflander and
Tom Gamon won as Jinx Johnson
was the victim of Northwestern's Don
Burst in the biggest upset of the day.
The doubles victory proved the
second major upset of the day ,when
Schaflander and Johnson upset the
favored duo of Martin and Johansen,
Chicago, in the three bracket.
Jim Porter and Lawton Hammett,
who had missed being seeded last
night, ran into two of the toughest
men in the tourney in Bobby Jake
of Northwestern andi Cal Sawyier of
Chicago and lost the only matches
of the afternoon for the Wolverines.
Stille was paired with a fellow he
had beaten just a week ago in Bobby
Harbrecht of Ohio State and despite
the determined play of the stocky
Buckeye, once again came out the
decisive winner by a score of 6-4, 6-2.
Both players had'their shots working
well today and kept each other back
by the base-line with deep drives as
neither had much success getting up
to the net. Stille's back-hand, how-
ever, had Harbrecht running, and ac-
counted for many saves which the
Duke converted into points and
coupled with flat drives to corners
gave Stille an upper hand which he
never relinquished.
Gamon climbed all over his oppon-
ent, Ken Silgen of Minnesota, in the

first set to win 6-1 and though he
lost his touch in the second came
through to end the match at 7-5. Ga-
mon utilized some nice chop strokes
and a very effective backhand to
force his opponent into many errors
and score many more points on place-
ments and passing shots.
One of the most decisive matches
of the day was Schaflander's victory
over Chet Barrand of Wisconsin.
Gerry,'though not in top form, easily
tripped up his Badger opponent in
two sets, 6-3, 6-3
Johnson's match was a heart-
breaker for Jinx, the heavy favorite
to win at six, and put a severe crimp
in the Wolverines' chances of retain-
ing their title. Unfortunately, Jinx
met up with Don Burst, up until to-
day an unknown but now favored to
win his bracket. Burst was hot to-
day and Johnson was not up to his
best tennis and the result was a three
set victory for Burst, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4,
Burst used a terrific overhead to
slam away point after point.
Porter played with a determina-
tion which brought cheers from the
crowd as he gave Jake a real run
for his money and when Porter pulled
out the first set, 8-6, it looked as if
perhaps an upset was in store. Jake,
however, exhibited a superb forehand
and serve to come back to win, 7-5,'

Concluding a comparatively un-
successful week, which ivas marked
by a 24-12 defeat at the hands of
Ohio State, and a 71/2-71/2 tie with
Michigan* State, the golf team will
meet the Illini squad in a match to
be held Saturday morning and after-
noon, May 16. The match is the final
one which the golfers play before the
all-important Big Ten Meet which
will be held here next Monday- and
Ben Smith who played in the Ohio
State match and was able to tie
former Conference champ Billy Gil-
bert, 77-77, even with his trouble-
some shoulder, didn't play in the
match with the Spartans, as Coach
Ray Courtright wanted to give the
ailing shoulder a rest.
However, it is expected that Smith
will see action in the Illinois en-
counter, although he will probably
only play play in the singles matches
in the afternoon and will not try to

compete in the best ball matches, as
it is hoped that he will be in top
shape for the Big Ten Meet. "His
shoulder is still taped and although
it doesn't seem to bother him 'muchb
while he is playing, Coach Court-
right is going to have him keep it
strapped to prevent any possibility
of having it pull out again.
Next to Smith, whose injury has
been a crucial point, Bill Courtright
has been the most talked of man on
the team this week. The tough little
junior who has been shooting better
and better golf all season, climaxed
his efforts in the Spartan 'match
when he carded a one over par 73.
As the scores would indicate, the
golfers seem to have undergone a
slight slump in the past few days.
Bob Fife especially has been having
trouble with high scores. This diffi-
culty may well be due to staleness,
but it is expected that after a two
days' rest it may all be ironed out.
