Netters,

Trackmen Leave for Conference Championships

Romulus Fliers Provide Real
Opposition for Tennis Squad
Lt. Christie Breaks Even with Johnson in
Well-Played Match; Ford, Post, Boucher Win

By JO ANN PETERSON j
It was scheduled at the last minute,
but yesterday's tennis match, in
which the varsity netters met a squad
of Army flyers from the Romulus air
base, proved to be just the competi-
tion Michigan needed before the all-
important Big Ten matches to be
held at Chicago, Saturday.
The flyers only brought down a
four man squad to tackle, the Maize
and Blue players, but at least one of
these men proved to play a brand of,
tennis so excellent that it forced the
varsity to go all out to win.
Johnson Plays Christie
Jinx Johnson, playing in his accus-
tomed number one singles position,
was' matched with fit. Warren Chris-
tie of the Romulus squad. Johnson,
who is one of the three top contenders
for the Big Ten singles crown, has
not been extended this week, and
needed an opponent to provide
enough competition so that the stea-
dy Jinx could have a workout prep-
aratory to the Conference matches.
In Lt. Christie, Jinx met a player,
who according to Coach LeRoy Weir,
played "some of the finest tennis that
has been seen in Ann Arbor for a1
long time." Lt. Christie was number
one singles player on the University
of Texas tennis teamn during the '41;
and '42 seasons, and played on a
squad which included such outstand-
ing players as Wally Driver, rated)

number four junior player in the
country, and Jack Hickman, another
high ranking star.
Christie Has Not Played This Season
Lt. Christie has been able to play
only three times this season, but he
displayed a brand of smooth-strok-
ing, hard-hitting tennis that was
remarkable to watch. He took the
first set from Johnson, 6-4, but was
downed in the second set, 7-5. Lt.
Christie tired during the second set,
as he was naturally out of condition,
but still managed to look so good in
the majority of rallies, that several
times the ball traveled back and
forth across the net as many as 40
times before a point was scared.
Mai tch Not Finished"
The match was not concluded as
Coach Weir did not wish .Johnson to
wear himself out, when he will be
calledd upon to play three matches
Saturday.
In the other matches of the after-
noon, the remaining players. Boucher.
Post and Ford all took their sets
from the Romulus players, while in
the doubles even Coach Weir entered
the game, as Bill Ford had to return
to the quad.
The Romulus match was a final
test before the Conference match,
and from all indications the squad is
in good shape, and should be well-
qualified to walk off with team
honors at Chicago.

Golfers Leave
To Compete in
Big Ten Meet
Michigan Favored;-
Tews To Play Top
Position at Chicago
By RUTH ELCONIN
Having captured the Big Ten golf
crown for the past two years, the
Wolverine linksmen will be making a
strong bid for thieir third successive
title tomorrow at the Medinah Coun-
try Club in Chicago.
Golf mentor Ray Courtright and
Captain Phil Marcellus left yesterday
for the Windy City, which will give
them the opportunity to play the
course before the matches start on
Saturday. John Jenswold, Jack Tews,
Tom Messinger and Paul O'Hara,
who compose the rest of the team,
will not be able to leave until today
because of naval regulations. Never-
theless, the players will receive accur-
ate information about the condition
of the links from Courtright and
Marcellus
Michigan is favored to win team
honors, and after reviewing the sea-
son's play one can see why they are
considered the top team. When the
schedule ended last Saturday the.
final record was six wins against two
defeats. The Wolverines dropped
matches to Ohio State and Notre
Dame, but on May 13 the Maize and
Blue golfers avenged the Buckeye"
conquest by defeating the Ohioans
16-2.
Tews Is Most Consistent
After examining the past perfor-
mances of the linksters the most con-
sistent player proves to be Jack Tews.
Tews has been number one man on
the team and has captured honors in]
practically every contest. Coach
Courtright said one of the major fac-
tors in the big Buckeye defeat wasE
because Tews was able to stop Ohio's
star golfer, Dick Peterson. Probably
one of the reasons for Tews' success-;
ful season was because he was one of
.the first ones to hit his stride and
h gaintained top playing conditions
throughout the year.
Right on Tews' heels is Marcellus,
who did not start shooting good golf
until the last half ofthe season.Now
he is in perfect shape and is being
counted on to keep the pace he has
set in past weeks and to match his
past Big Ten performance.
Good Team Balance
The next three members of the
varsity squad, Messinger, O'Hara and
Jenswold, are on equal footing. Of
the trio, Messinger is the only one to
have competed in all the contests,
and his best score was last week at
Detroit, when he carded a 75. Jens-
wold's top showing of the year was
also at the Motor City when he
topped both teams with a score of
74. Courtright stated that "Messin-
ger and Jenswold played their best
golf of the year at Detroit," and
O'Hara is now playing up to expecta-
tions.
These five players have worked in
perfect harmony throughout the sea-
