By GLORIA VREELAND
With two doubles teams seeded at
the top of their division, the Michi-
gan petters began play today at
Evanston in the Big Ten tennis
championships, having only an out-
side chance for victory, according to
Coach LeRoy Weir.
Of the eight teams entered in the
meet, (Indians and Iowa are the ab-
sentees) at least five have chances
to win the championship, which'
Northwestern captured last year. The
live include Illinois, Ohio State,
Michigan, Chicago and Northwest-
ern. However, the Illini being the
only undefeated team in the con-
ference and the sole aggregation to
conquer the Buckeyes this season,
are naturally favorites.
Buckeyes Strong
Ohio State also enters the meet
with high hopes, not only for team
honors, but also for individual titles.
Bob Wasserman, undefeated in con-
ference battles this spring has ex-
ticed under the bleachers both Mon-
day and Tuesday in anticipation of
today's game. The inactivity of the
team has been especially hard on the
hurling staff.
Dick Walterhouse, first sacker was
hit in the left leg by a thrown ball
yesterday. The injury is not expected
to handicap him.
White, Stenberg Hit Well
Yesterday's practice was marked
by sloppy play which can be ex-
pected after the long layoff the squad
has had. However, both Paul White
and Bob Stenberg were connecting
often during batting drills.
Friday's game with the Buckeyes,
the first in a two-game series, will
be a decisive one for the Maize and
Blue. Fisher feels that if the first
game can be won, the second should
not be difficult, because the Buckeyes
are pitching their star hurler in Fri-
day's encounter. He is Don Grate, a
freshman, who is unbeaten this sea-
son. He struck out 12 men in his last
encounter. Fisher is planning to start
Boim in this game, hoping that his
veteran hurler will be able to hold
down the Buckeye stickers.
Can Cinch Title
If the Varsity nine can win both
Ohio State contests it will cinch the
Big Ten Conference title which it
shared with Iowa last year. If it loses
even one game the possibilities of
winning will be practically nil, as
Wisconsin still has four games to
play, and would only need to win
three of them to better the Varsity
record.

cellent prospects for copping the
singles crown. Jim Lothrop is Illi-
nois' big contender in the top singles
division. However, Michigan's prom-
ising freshman, Roger Lewis, showed
the Illini ace some tough competion
when he forced him to go three sets,
but finally succumbed in the last
one 7 to 5.
Downs, Northwestern Ilope
The Wildcats have one of the
most outstanding prospects for the
title winner in the person of Naval
Aviation Cadet Roger Downs. Downs,
who formerly attended the University
of Illinois, has lost only to Wasser-
man this year.
The Wolverines, sad to say, have
had a rather poor showing in con-
ference battles this year. They lost
all four of their Big Ten matches-
all of them by heart-breaking scores
of 5 to 4.
Johnson and Bradley Strong
However, the number two doubles
combination of Captain Jinx Johnson
and Roy Bradley won all but one of
its matches this season, thus earning
the honor of being seeded in its di-
vision. Merle Brown and Roy Bouch-
er would up the season undefeated
and will also be seeded in the meet.
Johnson looked as if he were head-
ed for a great season when he won
his first three matches of the cam-
paign, but his three recent set-backs
at the hands of Chicago, Ohio State
and Northwestern prevented his en-
tering the championships as threat
to the other title seekers.
Ray Courtright
In 15th Year
With Michigan
By JEAN GASKELL
Introducing Ray Courtright, sin-
cere friend, great coach and teacher
of Wolverine linksmen for fifteen
years.
"Corky" came to Michigan in the
fall of 1927 with a brilliant personal
athletic record behind him, and sev-
eral successful years as coach of
teams in the West. A twelve letter
man in his college days at the Uni-
versity of Oklahoma, Courtright won
honors in football, basketball, track
and baseball.
Coached Tennis, Too
Leaving his coaching job with the
Colorado "Aggies," Courtright came
here to take charge of the "B" squads
in football and basketball. In the
spring he alternated between the ten-
nis and golf chores. He coached his
tennis team to the Big Ten dual
matches championship one year, be-
fore specializing in the golfing de-
partment.
Golf was an entirely new game to
him when he began coaching the
linksmen. He took lessons from sev-
eral good pros, later taught during
the summer at golf courses in the
northern part of the state. Chuck
Kocsis and Johnny Fisher, star golf-
ers for the Maize and Blue in the
thirties gave him a chance, he says,
to see some great exhibitions of the
game at its best.
Great Teacher
"Corky" is one of the best teachers
in the business. All the team mem-
bers will testify to this. Whenever
anything goes wrong he can spot the
difficulty immediately. Then prac-
tice begins with the coach standing
by t.o make sure that the mistake is
not unknowingly repeated. Court-
right is always out with the team.
Daily practice rounds with the men
are just a part of his accepted and
pleasurable routine.
