Three Netters Will Play in Intercollegiates

Nine Winds Up Season with Two
Single Contests Against Broncos

Sports Editor


'Michigan's baseball team"will wind
up the 1944 season today and tomor-
row when they play single games
with the Western Michigan nine at
The Wolverines have already met
and defeated Coach John Gill's
Broncos twice at Ferry Field and will
be out to make it four in a row.
Victories in the two tilts will give
Michigan a season's record of 17
wins, two losses, and a tie in 20 starts.
Bowman Misses No-Hitter
In the early-season encounters
Western exhibited good pitching in
spots and was pretty fast afield, but
showed little power at the plate. Bb
Bowman shut them out with one hit
in the opener, missing a no-hitter
when first baseman John Hovanec
singled with two out in the ninth.
Elroy Hirsch gave up only two in-

field singles in the second encounter,
but had a tough time eking out a
2-1 win as Paul Phillips kept seven
Wolverine safeties well-scattered.
Lineup Juggled
Ace Bronco pitcher, Warren (Red)
Biddle, was nicked for eight bingles
in the opener against Bowman and
was also victimized by some untime-
ly errors as Michigan scored nine
runs. Biddle is recognized as one
of the finer pitchers in Michigan col-
legiate ranks.
Bowman will hurl one game for the
Wolverines over the weekend, while
the second starter is indefinite. Hir-
sch will be playing first as a result
of a juggled lineup.

THE PAST YEAR has been a banner one as far as Michigan sports are
concerned. Eight of the nine Wolverine teams taking part in big Ten
competition brought home Conference crowns and their fans are sitting
on top of the world, proud of their winning ways.
But we wonder what they'll be saying about sports a year from
now, when Dame Fortune may not be smiling down on humble Michi-
gan. With the famous athletes transfered here from other schools in
the Navy and Marine programs all gone, and the number of participants
from the new training groups greatly reduced, the Wolverines won't
have the advantage over other Conference schools that they had for
the past two semesters.
And with this advantage gone, their seasons may be losing or mediocre.
The football team, for example, has lost 10 of the men who started the
majority of its games last fall, and George Kraeger the eleventh, is also
rumored to be going. Therefore the Wolverines aren't expected to be
the powerhouse they were last year, and may even be at a disadvantage
when meeting other colleges who have already spent a year working with
teen-agers and 4-F's.
Along with every other squad they will also be under the additional
psychological handicap of trying to live up to the performance of their
EXCEPT for Gil Dodds and perhaps Bill Hulse, the nations track power
this year seems to be centered in the Midwest, due mainly to the
prowess of one Claude "Buddy" Young, stubby sprinter from Illinois.
With Dodds name absent from the list of entries for the NAAU
meet this weekend, Young seems like the only entrant with a possibility
of establishing a new record. Skipping the broad jump and hurdles to
concentrate on the sprints and having his toughest competition of the
year in the person of Texas Charley Parker, Young will have his last
crack at Jesse Owen's old 100 and 200-yard marks of :09.4 and :20.3.
Young already has a :09.5 century to his credit, but that happened
here in a triangular meet with a strong wind at his back and wasn't
official. However, he has officially tied the world's 60-yard mark, and
may unexpectedly do as well Saturday.-'
Among the other outstanding Mid-Westerners are Kenny Wiesner,
Marauette high jumper, and Michigan's Hume twins. Wiesner has
the highest jump on record for 1944, 6 feet, 7 and 3-16 inches, and
will undoubtedly capture the NAAU title if he enters.
The Humes, Bob and Ross, are the country's greatest mile prospects.
They already have a 4:14.6 mile to their credit and might have gotten
down even lower this year had they not tried to finish in a dead heat every
time they ran. We understand the Humes' attitude, but would still like
to see them race for time, in the not too distant future, regardless of who
winds up first.1
There was a chance that they would have to do this if they ran
in the NAAU 1500-meter run against Hulse, but when that Saturday ,
comes around their stiffest competition will come from a couple of
final exams.

Weir's Entries
To Be Johnson,
Posty Boucher
Tennis Squad Given
Six Major Awards
Three members of Michigan's
championship net squad, Jinx John-
son, Dave Post and Roy Boucher,
will compete in the National Inter-
collegiate tennis matches at North-
western University June 26-30.
Johnson and Boucher will team
up in the doubles play and all three
men are expected to perform in the
singles competition.
Simultaneously with this an-
nouncement came the presentation
of seven letters by Coach Leroy Weir
to the 1944 Wolverine net squad.
Those winning major awards were
Johnson, Post, Boucher, Jim Frolik,
Merle Gulic and Bill Ford. A minor
award was won by Farnham John-
Suffer One Loss
This year's squad was one of the
finest in Coach Weir's seven-year
regime. The team suffered only one
loss in nine dual meets. Their lone
setback was a close 5-4 defeat, ad-
ministered by Notre Dame's unbeat-
en team.
Michigan, in capturing the Con-
ference title, was forced towage an
uphill battle all the way against Ohio
State, the defending champions. The
Wolverines won the championship by
the slender margin of 18-17.
Gulic's Record Perfect
Individual singles titles were chalk-
ed up by Gulik, Lewis and Post in
the number three, five and six
brackets respectively. Gulic return-
ed to win another title as he teamed
with Boucher to capture the third
flight doubles championship.
Gulic was the only Mae and Blue
netter who maintained a perfect rec-
ord in both singles and doubles play.
This is an indication of the excellent
team balance that accounted for Mi-
chigan's net successes in the 1944

O'Mara To Captain'45 Golf Squad
The powerful Wolverine linksmen yesterday elected Paul O'Hara as
captain of the 1945 golf squad to succeed Phil Marcellus who has led the
the team throughout the present campaign.
O'Hara, although not the individual star of the golfers, has played
a steady game of golf all year and is well deserving of the honor. Along
with the other linksmen, he helped the squad through a very successful
season that was climaxed three weeks ago when they won the Western
Conference title.
On June 26, 27, and 28 at the Inverness Country Club, Toledo, Ohio,
Coach Ray Courtright's charges will try for a victory in the NCAA Golf
Championships. Ken Morey will be the sixth Wolverine to compete
in the tournament.
The Wolverines squad wil undoubtedly receive some stiff competition
from Notre Dame, Yale, and Purdue.
