arsity Golf Squad Anounced by Couirtrght

Daily Sports Editor
Mecca for 'M Men
When the Advance Unit of the Michigan ROTC and the University's
PRC were being processed and uniformed at Fort Custer (God bless its
happy environs) last week, there were no less than 16 Wolverine lettermen
in the group. Nine of these men have come back to live in the Army bar-
tacks at the Allen Rumsey House. They are all former ROTC students.
The iemaining seven went the way of all unclassified ERC's.
THE1RE were six Varsity sports represented among the Michigan men
t aCuster. Everyone was interested when they learned that Tom
t~usa was in camp. Since the majority of the incoming soldiers last
week were ERC's from Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Michi-
gji,' ost of them had heard of the Wolverines' great halfback. End
|lmer Ma4Ar, tackle Jack Karwales and quarterback Bob Vernier were
4J8o around, but Kuzma stole their thunder. Tom returned with the
ktTc u nit.
Of the four baseball lettermen--Don Boor, Cliff Wise, Bill (Killer) Cain
Jd Dick (Not So) Savage-only Cain and Savage were among the ROTC
Ca4ets. Both are pitchers and form Coach Ray Fisher's "Big Four." Wise
ind Boor also won grid letters.
BOBBY WEST and Walt Stewart of Coach Matt Mann's swimming ,
team survived the rigors of Custer's "K.P." line, and are now trying
to meet the discipline of barracks life. West completed 10 years of
s"imming competition this season and was mighty glad it was all over.
It gets tiresome after a few years." But Bob's been eating for over 20
Iears and he doesn't seem to be tired of it (?). Stewart got a special
pass at Custer to take in the Nationals at Columbus and had to return

Hockey was represented by Captain Hank Loud who was Cadet Colonel
Loud In the ROTC unit, and Manager Gil Gambs. And track had Ernie
Leonardi, a two-miler, and John Ingersoll, a miler. Ingersoll was an ERC,
while Leonardi is one of the Cadets and is still available for Coach Ken
Poherty's outdoor season.
OF COURSE, we can't forget that rare fellow, John (Hopalong) Leidy,
who will take a crack at a spot on Ray Courtright's Varsity golf
lean ,for the fourth straight year. A recent Big Ten ruling makes
so~lers," stationed at a university eligible for Varsity competition
regardless of previous records. Leidy should be a lot of help to the
Maihe and Blue linksmen.
Last on the list only because someone has to be last is little Dick Kopel
who was just an ERC. Dick won the Big Ten 121-pound crown this year
for Miehigan, and was the only winner to pin his man in the final. He's
bound $or the Army Air Force.

Eighteen Men
Ineluded in
List for 1943
Only The - -i et << u erien
With a list of eighteen men headed
by three returnig lettermen, Ben
Smith, John Leidy and Bob Fife,
Coach Ray Courtright announced the
temporary Varsity golf squad of the
1943 season.
This group of Varsity players has
been increased to include freshmen
who show prospects, thus eliminating
the necessity of a yearling squad. The
men who did not make this tempor-
ary list have been placed in the "re-
serve class." In this way Courtright
has made provision for fellows who
may be able to replace some of the
favored eighteen later on in the sea-

DETROIT, March 31.-P)-The
role of favorite is nothing new to the
Detroit Red Wings and Manager Jack
Adams' scrappy club finds itself in
that familiar spot for the Stanley Cup
series with the Boston Bruins open-
ing here tomorrow night.
The Wings, highly confident after
disposing of the tough Toronto Maple
Leaf, atre given an 8-5 chance to de-
feat Boston ini the best-of-seven
championship series and bring the
Stanley Cup to Detroit for the first
time since 1937.
Adams said today he intends to
use the same team against Boston
that he has in the last two victories
over Toronto. This means that Capt.
Sid Abel will continue to operate as
the center on the No. 1 line with Mud
Bruneteau and Carl Liscombe. The
latter is top point scorer in the play-
offs with nine.
The Bruins, who reached the finals
by defeating Montreal, will not be at
full strengtli Buzz Boll, high-scoring
right winger is out with a broken
knee cap and Jack Crawford, ace
defenseman, has a leg injury and
probably will not see action until late
in the series.
The Wings and Bruins split even
during the regular season, each club
winning four games and two ending
in ties.
A sellout crowd of 12,000 is ex-
pected to see the first game of the
series tomorrow night. The second
game will be played here Sunday,
with the third and fourth games in
Boston next Tuesday and Thursday.

With the advent of unexpected
summer-like weather, Michigan's ten-
nis team will have its first chance to
move outdoors this week and get used
to the Har-Tru courts before their
first match with Michigan State,
April 21.
The netters have been prevented
from practicing outdoors on warm
days before because their composition
course couldn't be made ready until
after the last frost had come and
gone. The courts just like the players
take time to get in shape. They have
a cinder base and a green composition
surface that make them quick-drying
after rains, but the surface has to be
rolled every day to be kept in top
Coach Leroy Weir has also ar-
ranged another home match for this
season. The match with Western
Michigan which was previously just
tentative is now definitely set for
April 27. He has also aranged a home
meet with Kalamazoo College for
May 1.

chances of opening the season in the
number one spot by defeating Roger

Captain Jinx Johnson stayed in the
