Michigan Tennis Team Faces Strong Buckeye Squad

Today

Linksters Face
Detroit in Last
Tilt of Season
Wolverines Favored To
Beat Titans; Big Ten
Matches on May 27
The Wolverine golfers leave tomor-
row for Detroit to engage the Uni-
versity of Detroit in the last match of
the 1944 season before the Big Ten
championships on May 27.
Winding up the year with the Ti-
tan match will give the Michigan
players good opportunity to practice
for the Conference play-offs which
are scheduled for next Saturday. The
Wolverines are favored to win the]
Detroit tilt with ease since they have
previously defeated the Titans on
April 15, 18-0, and the Detroiters
have not won a match as yet.
The Michigan linksmen will be led
around the fairways of the Detroit
Golf Club by Capt. Phil Marcellus.
Coach Courtright said that Marcellus,
Jack Tews, John Jenswold, Tom
Messinger and Paul O'Hara will
make the trip,- but only four of the
five will tee off against Detroit.
According to Courtright the link-
sters will flip to see which of the
players will face the Titans.

Netters Play Ohio State
In First Home Contest
Racqueteers Only Loss of Season Was
To Notre Dame; Ohioans Yet to Lose Match

By JO ANN PETERSON
It should be a torrid match all the
way as the Michigan net squad plays
host to Ohio State's Buckeyes at 4
p.m. this afternoon, with both teams
anxious to maintain their high class
records.
It will be the first home match of
the season for Michigan and as such,
will provide Michigan net fans with
an opportunity to watch the highly-
touted tennis squad in what promises
to be its most critical match of the
entire season. " On the outcome of
this match will depend much of the
Wolverines' hopes in the fast-ap-
proaching Conference meet.
Varsity Has Played Several Matches
Although the Maize and Blue net-
ters have had an adequate number
of matches prior to this, which should
have prepared them for the Buckeye
strength, for the most part the meets
have been very easy ones for the
Wolverines, and it was only in the
Notre Dame match, which they lost
5-4, that the varsity netters met the
kind of opposition they are certain
to run up against today.
Still Michigan has five matches on
the credit side of the ledger, with
only the Notre Dame match marked
up in red ink, and since that meet
there have been several changes in
Coaqh LeRoy Weir's lineup, so that
the team which faces Ohio State

today is probably superior to that
which was earlier defeated by the
Irish.
Buckeyes Have Won Big Ten Match
Also, the Buckeyes, although unde-
feated, have won only one Big Ten
match, that being a 7-2 victory over
Illinois, while last week-end the var-
sity netters were able to put down
the Illini without the loss of a single
match.
The big gun on the Buckeye squad
is Aris Franklin, playing in the num-
ber one singles slot. Last year Frank-
lin captured third place in the West-
ern Conference championships, and
with the additional experience gained
in this season's matches, should be a
tough opponent for wily Jinx John-
son.
Weir Using Last Week's Lineup
Coach Weir is playing the same
lineup that proved so capable in last
week's double victory, with Johnson
fiist, followed by Jim Frolik, Bill
Ford, Merle Gulic, Roger Lewis andI
Dave Post.
Saturday the Wolverines meet
Northwestern at 1:30 p.m., after the
Wildcats take on Ohio State in the
morning. Entrance to the tennis
matches can be made most easily
through the gate at the west end of
the Sports Building.

Tigers Defeat
A's on Gentry's
1-0 Shutout
PHILADELPHIA, May 18. - (P)-
Rookie Pitcher Ruffus Gentry of the
Detroit Tigers celebrated his 26th
birthday today by shutting "out the
Philadelphia Athletics, 1 to 0, giving
his team an even wreak in the four-
game series.
Aside from spacing nine hits su-
perbly, Gentry won his own game in
the eighth inning with a sharp single
to left field that scored Chuck Hos-
tetler, who had singled and advanced
on a sacrifice. All told, the Tigers
got three hits off Don Black of the
A's, Hostetler getting the other in
the fifth.
In the six innings, the Macks put
the first batter on base and in only
two innings, the fifth and seventh,
was Gentry able to retire the side
in order.

Ohio State and Chicago and a single
triumph was recorded against Min-
nesota.
The Gophers came back in a sec-
ond engagement to reverse their pre-
vious loss, eking out a 5-4 win. Illi-
nois won the first decision by an 8-4
count. Purdue also copped a decision
from Roettger's yearlings, scoring a
7-0 shutout, and in addition held Illi-
nois to an 11-inning 3-3 tie.
Illinois Has Strong Team
The Wolverines are expected to
have a difficult time of it at Cham-
paign, according 'to reports received
from the personnel of the Ohio State
team which was in town last week-
end. Buckeye Coach Fritz Mackey
told Coach Ray Fisher that the Illi-
ni "had a little better team than
Michigan."
According to the records, the Wol-
verines are a game ahead of Illinois
in the contests won and the lost col-
umn during Coach Fisher's tenure
here. The Illini have won 22 tilts to
Michigan's 23. The Wolverines have
had to take the last four games with{
Illinois to establish their superiority.
The Orange and Blue are the closest
of all teams in the Big Ten to hold-

SUITS,

From Majo General Aurand
to the women of
MICHIG AN
S know how close the war has come to you.
The young college women of America understand the origins
of this war and the vicious nature of the enemy. More
than that, you understand what sacrifice is demanded to
win the war. You have watched college classes
dwindle as more and more young men were needed to
fight. It is important to you, it is important to all
America that those men return as quickly as possible.
When I tell you that your eager minds and skillful hands
can do something real about speeding the soldiers'
victorious return, I know you will take the opportunity.
Yes, those soldiers need your help. The Army needs
your contribution to its full fighting strength.
Henry S. Aurand
Major General, U. S. Army
6th Service Command, Commanding.
