Michigan Takes Opener;
Sweep Doubles Matches
Ilersh, Mikulich Drop Singles Tils to Foe;
McCItisky Triumphs in Comeback; Cook Stars

By CHUCK LEWIS
After a shaky start, Michigan's
tennis team finished strongly to de-
feat Michigan State's Spartan racke-
teers, 7-2, yesterday afternoon on the
Ferry Field courts in their opening
match of the season.
Michigan's number one and two
singles entries, Jack Hersh and Bill
Mikulich, lost their first matches by
naitow margins, but in all the other
matches the Maize and Blue netmen
emergedvictoriously.
Hersh Drops Match to Cessna
Hersh led off festivities by losing a
close match to State's number one
man, Ralph Cessna, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4. It
was Cessna's consistency that spelled
victory of Hersh's more spectacular'
style of play.
The highlight of the singles com-
petition was the number four match
which pitted together Michigan's
Dean McClusky and Herb Hoover for
the Staters. The match was the clos-
est of the afternoon with the lead
changing several times. After each
man had one set to his credit, Hoover
had McClusky five games to three in
the third set, but Michigan's number
four man gave a brilliant exhibition
and came back to take four games
in succession and win the last set and
the match, 6-4, 5-7, 7-5.
Cook Wins Only Love Set
The only one-sided singles match
brought together Harold Cook for
Michigan and John McGrath of
State. It was Cook's match all the
way as he had little trouble in win-
ning, 6-0 and 6-3.
The other singles matches were
closely contested but Michigan's
number three, and five men, Fred
Wellington, and Jim Evans, respec-
tively, showed their mettle and the
true balance that this year's team
possesses in annexing their victories.
Doubles Teams Sweep Matches.
The Wolverines' doubles combina-
tions were. too much for their ad-

versaries from East Lansing. In the
number one match, it was Hersh and
Wellington from the start. Hersh's
well-placed slam shots furnished the
margin of victory for Michigan com-
bined with his partner's consistent
play.
In the number two and three dou-
bles matches, the dues of Evans and
Mikulich together with McClusky
and Paul Schoenlaub were in front
all the way and won their matches in
the minimum of two sets to add finis
to a courageous Michigan State
-quad.
Open Title Defense Saturday
After hostilities ceased, Coach Le-
roy Weir stated that hehwas pleased
with the showing of the team for
their first match of the season, but
emphasized that this was only the
first match and thereis room for
considerable improvement.
The victorious Weirmen journey to
Lafayette this weekend to open de-
fense of their Western Conference
crown and engage Indiana Saturday
morning and Purdue's Boilermakers
in the afternoon.

Leave For Penn
Relays Today
Relay Personiel
Is Still lDoulbtl
Michigan's track team will com-
pete in the sprint medley, mile relay,
and possibly the two or four mile re-1
lays at the Penn Relays Track Car-
nival tomorrow and Saturday when
the meet gets under way at Franklin
Field in Philadelphia.
The actual personnel of the various
relays probably will not be decided
until the team steps out on the field
this weekend. Coach Ken Doherty is
reserving his final decisions until he
can obtain further information about
the time between events and the
strength of the opposing squads.
Meet is Largest of Year
The Carnival, the largest track
meet in the country, is the first ex-
ample of what can be expected in
outdoor track competition this year,
and the Michigan squad, in its initial
outdoor test, can be relied upon to
give a good account of itself.
Val Johnson, Bill Haidler, Hap
Coleman, and Hugh-Short will run
the sprint and quarter-mile legs on
the relays, while Herb Barten, Bob
Thomason, Chuck Low, and Dean
Voegtlen will take care of the longer
distances. George Ostroot is sched-
uled for the shot put and discus as-
signments.
Illinois Threatens Mile Relays Mark
There is a strong possibility that
several records may be lowered dur-
ing the meet. The mile relay record of
3:14.8, set by Pittsburgh in 1939, will
be endangered when Michigan and
Illinois tangle in this event. The Illi-
nois relay ran 3:18.7 indoors this'
year, with Michigan not far behind.
Indoor running is considered a great
deal slower than outdoors, and both
teams have improved considerably
since that time.
With Bill Bangert of Purdue, Irv
Kintisch and Bernie Mayer of N.Y.U.,
and Tex Coulter of Army in the shot-
put, the record of 55 ft., 5 3/8 in. by
the late Al Blozis of Georgetown may
also be lowered, though this will be a
tough mark to break. Bangert posted
a 54ft. 7 in. toss in the Purdue Relays
this year, and Coulter has bettered 53
ft.
Eddleman Guns For Record
Dike Eddleman of Illinois will be
aiming at the high jump record of 6
ft 7 / in. held by Adam Berry of
Southern University, and he has a
good chance of topping it. He jumped
6 ft. 8 in. in practice last week, and
with the competition which most as-
suredly will be provided, he may
write a new mark into the books.

Barc lay's Par-Equalling
72 Sets Winning Margin

By BO10% LENT I
Michigan's Golf team ran into un-,
expected trouble against Wayne yes-1
terday but managed to squeezea
through to a 16-11 victory on the
strength of Dave Barclay's brilliant
par-equalling 72 over the tough Uni-
versity course.
Carding birdies on the 8th, 11th
and 18th holes, the Rackford, Illin-
ois freshman shut out Les Lenak, the
Tartars No. 1 man, with his 37-35
performance. On all three occasions
he rammed home 15-foot putts to
crack par.
Barclay's Play is Victory Margin
Teaming with Pete Elliott at the
same time, Barclay's sizling play gave
the Wolverines another three points
in the doubles match. These six points
were the margin of victory. Elliott
also picked uip three birdies on the
2nd, 9th and 18th but erratic play on
the back nine lifted his total to 79,
still good enough for a 2-1 win over
Wayne's Stan Setera who shot an 81.
Freshmen Come Through
The real battle of the day developed
in the second bracket. Wayne's coach,
Lawrence Russell, shuffled his line
up to pit his two top men against the
Maize and Blue's No. 3 and 4 men,
in the hopes of piling up enough
points to swing the match in the
Tartar's favor. Rog Kessler, Michi-
gan High School Champ, rose to the
occasion with a 79 and downed Frank
Jawor to upset the strategy. Jawor
had had an 81 but the margin would
have been greater except for three
successive 3-foot putts Kessler missed
coming in.
Ed Schalon, his partner, didn't fare
as well against Larry O'Palka, former
Detroit Public Links Champ. The 33-
year old Detroiter who was playing
in the Michigan Open way back in
1927, carded a 77 to take runner-up
honors for the day. Schalon had an
82.
DeVries Impressive
Newcomer DeVries made an aus-
picious 'debut to varsity competition
by slamming a 79 and downing Tom
Weeks, Wayne's No. 5 man, 3-0. An-
other newcomer, John Bennant, was
high man for the match with an 84
but looked like a real comer by tour-
ing the back nine in 39. He narrowly
missed. birdies on the 13th and 15th
when his putts curled away from the
cup. He lost to Tom Talkington 2-1.
DeVries and Bennant split their
match with Weeks and Tarkington,
11/2-1%2 while Schalon and Kessler

dropped theirs 212 - 12 to O'Palka and
Jawor. Doubles results are determined
by the best ball method of low part-
ner on each hole.
