this coming season.
Admittedly the Wolverines must
be classed as somewhat of a question
mark, yet several things tend to make
an encouraging picture. The first of
these is the record of Coach Weir. In
the short half dozen years he has
reigned the Wolverines have risen
from nowhere to a position equal to
that of Northwestern and Chicago,
the perennial powers in the Confer-
ence. In the past two seasons Michi-
gan has taken the title and the run-
ner-up position.
Twelve Straight
In addition to Johnson who last
season set one of the most phenom-
enal individual records in Maize and
Blue history by winning twelve
straight matches before his streak of
25 was ended at the Conferences,
Coach Weir will have back letterman
Fred Wellington and one of the best
freshman teams in University his-
tory. Therein lies the second big rea-
son for hoping that the Wolverines
can maintain their present position
in the Conference. Wellington,
though he didn't see much action last
season and had to take a back seat
to six outstanding players should
come into his own this season with a
chance to play regularly. Of the
freshmen Bill Honey, Bill Mikulich
and Gerry Mullaney stand out and
should give opponents plenty of
Irish Strong
Whether they can match the rec-
ord of last year's great team is
doubtful. In twelve dual matches last
season the Wolverines lost once and
then only to one of the finest teams
Notre Dame has ever placed on the
courts. Though they had to be satis-
fied with a tie with Chicago for sec-
ond at the Conference meet, th
Wolvernes, returned with four indi4
vidual titles, Co-captain Wayne Stil
le, Gerry Schaflander, Tom Gamon
and the number three doubles duo o
Schaflander-Johnson all winning in
their brackets. Johnson, with tw
brilliant seasons behind him jus
missed copping his second title at th
six spot when a hard-smashing Wild
cat unknown, Don Burst, and a hal
gale combined to put him out of th
tournament in the first round.
Jinx, with speed, canniness, an
a fighting spirit all within his five
foot-five frame is determined t
make up for that loss this season and
help bring back the Big Ten trophy
to Ann Arbor. Those who know th
