Michigan Seeks Hlme Twiis To Run in AT.C.A.A.
Thirteenth Win ' jf 1nI!A ,-, 41;I7,i n


Early this spring Ray Courtright,
Michigan's golf nientor, described
linksman Tom Messinger as a "steady
player with a good style and temper-
ament," and he also added that Mes-
singer should be a definite asset to
the 1944 golf team.
Courtright's prediction concern-I
ing his new 'eharge was correct.I
Not 'only did Messinger make the
varsity team in his first attempt,
but he also proved to be one of the
outstanding players on the squad.
Glancing at Messinger's record, one
can easily see that he gave the
opposition plenty to worry about in
addition to giving his utmost sup-
port and confidence to his fellow
The Wolverines opened the golf
season against the University of De-
troit and when the scores were turned
in at the end of the match, Messin-
ger's card showed a 79, which was
top score for both teams. The next
day Michigan faced Northwestern,
and Messinger and Jack Tews shared
honors in this tilt. In the matches
that followed Messinger continued
shooting fine golf, game after game,
and when the team wound up the
season last Saturday at Detroit Mes-
singer again proved his ability by'
playing his best match of of the year.
Messinger had always planned
on coming to the University of
Michigan, but when he did arrive
i Ann Arbor on July 1, 1943, he
was wearing a Navy uniform and
was a member of the V-12 pro-
Commenting about his favorite
athletic pastimes, he ranks golf num-
ber one in his list of sports; but
hockey is a close second. Though he
was only a freshman, he played de-
fenseman on the 1943-44 Michigan

hockey team and won his varsity
letter and when spring came, Mes-
singer tried out for the golf squad
and was soon recognized as one of
the top performers.
'Tom first started to play golf
when he was only three years old
and he says that he owes his early
interest in the game to his father
who is not only an avid fan, but
also a regular participant in the
sport. The senior Messinger had a
special set of clubs made for Tom
and he used them until he was tall
enough for the regular sticks.
The Wolveinne's new linksman
comes from Houghton, Mich., where
he attended Houghton High, and
while there he devoted his time to
being a star pucksman, because the
school did not have a golf team. He
was on the hockey squad for two
successive years and he captured
honors and letters both times.
Confidence on the links is an
asset to golfers, and many gain it
by playing in several tournaments;
Messinger was no exception. Be-
fore coming to Michigan he won
the Upper Peninsula Golf Tourna-
ment when he was only 15, and
thus earned the distinction of being
the youngest player ever to achieve
this honor. In 1941 he won the
Portage Lake Golf Club Champion-
ship and also entered the St. Paul
The next summer he played in the
Western Junior Amateur and the
State Amateur Tournaments, and he
again captured honors in the Portage
Lake Golf Club Championship.
During this past golf season,
Messinger continued playing top
golf, and last Saturday he helped
the Wolverine linksters cop their
third successive Big Ten Crown
when he posted a 159 for the Con-
ference matches.

At South Bend
Fisher Picks Hirsch,
Bowman as Starters
Michigan's baseball team will be
seeking win number thirteen Friday
when it once more tangles with Notre
Dame in the first of a two-game
series at South Bend.
The Wolverines hope to repeat
their 5-4, 7-2 decisions over the Irish,
which were registered here April 29$
and 30 as Coach Ray Fisher's crew
won their third and fourth games of
the season. Fisher is expected to
throw righthander Elroy Hirsch and
lefty Bo Bowman at Jake Klein's men
for the second time this spring.
In his first start against the Irish,
Bowman pitched a five-hitter against
hurler Joe Zieminski to register his
second win. Hirsch's mound perfor-
mance against Notre Dame was his
initial starting assignment, and the
big righthander not only pitched a
seven-hitter, but also came through
at bat to tie up the game in the ninth.
Irish Again Improve
The Irish hit the skids after the
Wolverines administered their first
losses of the season, but have picked
up in their last few outings. Last
Saturday, the Notre Dame squad
whipped Western Michigan, a team
which the Wolverines took with 9-0,
2-1 scores.
Tuesday, the Irish lost to the Bun-
ker Hill Naval Base, a service nine
which boasts several ex-big leaguers
in its starting lineup. Of the Big Ten
squads they have played besides
Michigan, Notre Dame's varsity has
suffered a single defeat at the hands
of Wisconsin.
The Irish beat Purdue once and
took Indiana twice. Michigan regis-
tered 14-3, 12-1 wins over the Hoo-
siers Saturday, but have not met
Purdue yet. The face the Boiler-
makers here June 10 in a double-
header which will be their last Big
Ten go of the season.
Kline's Lineup Changes
The Notre Dame lineup will be very
different from the one which the
Wolverines encountered earlier in the
season. Approximately five of the
original nine players remain on the
Irish squad. Coach Kline has broken
in new talent and has made his old
lineup more flexible.
Tom Sheehan is no longer the ex-
clusive occupant of the catching
berth. The big backstop is now shar-
ing his duties with Walter Kowalski,
who did not see service here. How-
er, pitcher Joe Zieminski is certain to
start against the Maize and Blue for
a second time.
Zieminski was the loser in the last
contest here when he was forced to
the showers after allowing five hits
in seven innings. Although he was
responsible for Tuesday's defeat of
the Irish by the Bunker Hill team, he
is a greatly improved pitcher.
Jack Barrett, who relieved Ziemin-
ski and pitched one frame against
Michigan, is also an improved hurler.
In the single inning he pitched here,
Barrett allowed two hits but racked
up three strikeouts to retire the side.
