Michigan Ready
For Conference
Tennis Contests
Wolverines Start Year
By Defeating MSC, 7-2
Michigan's varsity tennis team
handed MCS a sweeping 7-2 defeat in
their season debut Wednesday on the
Ferry Field courts.
State's pair of wins were garnered
in the singles division where Michi-
gan's number one and two men, Jack
Hersh and Bill Mikulich, were forced
to bow to their Spartan opponents.
Both matches, however, were closely
contested and went to three sets.
Wellington Beats Philips
One of the highlights of the after-
noon was the number three singles
match in which Wolverine Fred Wel-
lington defeated Dave Philips of
State 8-6, 7-5, after trailing 5-0 in
the first set and 5-1 in the second.
Wellington's cool net play in the lat-
ter half of each set seemed to do the
trick.
The number four singles, featuring
Michigan's Dean McClusky and
MCS's Herb Hoover, provedsto be the
hottest match of the day. With the
score riding at a set a piece, Mc-
Clusky trailed 3-5 in the third.
Things looked very black but Mc-
Clusky rallied in the clutch and swept
through the next four games to win
the final set and the match, 6-4, 5-7,
7-5.
Michigan's number six man, Har-
old Cook encountered little difficulty
in racking up a 6-0, 6-3 victory over
State's Carl Frans. Wolverine Jack
Evans was victorious in the number
five singles defeating his Spartan ad-
verstary by a score of 7-5, 6-4.
Wolverines Sweep Doubles
In the doubles department, the
Wolverines swept all three matches
and held the offensive most of the
way.
The Wolverines encounter their
first conference competition tomor-
row when they face Indiana in the
morning and Purdue in the after-
noon at Lafayette.

Six Wolverines See Action Today Linksmen Face
In Sprint Medley, 2-Mile, Shot Put Bi Ten Champs
Sprint Quartet Will Defend Crown; Maize and On OSU Course
Blue Face Stiff Opposition in Field Events
By JACK MARTIN Conference Contests

Michigan's thinclads launch their 1946 outdoor track campaign this
afternoon with nine men entered in six events at the annual Penn Relays
in Philadelphia.
Only six of the Wolverines will see action today, however, the other
three having to wait until tomorrow's races. Michigan's sprint medley
quartet will attempt to defend its 1945 title today, while individual entrants
are scheduled for the open two-mile run and the shot put and discus.
The sprint medley foursome will -

Will Start Tomorrow

consist of Hugh Short,Val Johnson,
Horace Coleman and Herb Barten.
This may be changed at the last
moment, however, As Johnson missed
train connections in Ann Arbor yes-
terday and may not arrive in time to
run. If Johnson is unable to compete,
Coach Ken Doherty may put Bill
Haidler in his place.
Ostroot Entered in Shot Put, Discus
Big George Ostroot is entered in the
special shot put and discus events.
He will face some terrific competition
in the shot, with Bill Bangert of Pur-
due, Irv Kintisch and Bernie Mayer
of NYU, and Tex Coulter of Army all
scheduled to battle it out for top hon-
ors. Bangert only recently achieved
a heave of 54 ft. 7 in. in the Purdue
Relays, while Coulter has been pres-
sing the 54 ft. mark recently.
Dean Voegtlen, the other Wolver-
ine thinclad entered in an individual
event, is scheduled for the special
two-mile run this afternon. He faces
an extremely tough field, too, with
Frank Martin of NYU, National Col-
legiate two-mile champion, leading
the pack.
Four Way Duel Expected
Saturday the Wolverines will try
for titles in the mile relay and either
the two-mile or four-mile relay. The
first promises to be another duel be-
tween Michigan and the Illini, with
NYU and Army from the East thrown
in to make things interesting.
The Wolverine quartet is, pretty
well set, with Hap Coleman, Val John-
son, Bill Haidler, and Hugh Short
running in that order. While the Illi-
ni have lost Bill Buster, they have
several men on hand who can take
his place quite capably. George Wal-

ker, high and low hurdling ace, has
been clocked in the low 50's for the
quarter, and may be one of the Illini
foursome tomorrow.
Doherty was still undecided yester-
day as to which race his distance
stars would enter. Michigan last year
won both the four and two mile re-
lays, but there is not enough man-
power on hand this season to provide
teams for the two at the same time.
Whatever the final decision is, the
team will remain unchanged, with
Bob Thomason, Chuck Low, Herb
Barten, and Dean Voegtlen carrying
the baton.

When Michigan's young golfers tee
off against Ohio State tomorrow,
they'll have a man-sized job cut out
for them if they hope to evict the
Bucks from their Big Ten throne ac-
cording to Wayne's linksmen who
have played both.
The Buckeyes swamped Wayne 21-3
while Michigan copped a 16-11 ver-
dict. Said Les Lenak, Wayne's No. 1
man, "Michigan could win on their
home course but I'm afraid they'll
have plenty of trouble at Columbus."
Tomorrow's contest will be the first
conference match of the season for
the Maize and Blue.
Ohio Has Balanced Squad
Larry O'Palka, who took runner-
up honors Wednesday commented
that the Wolverines probably could
match Ohio with Dave Barclay and
Pete Elliott but the Buckeyes have
too much overall strength.
Coach Bill Barclay is conceding
nothing, but on paper Ohio looks just
too good. Reports from south of the
Michigan border indicate that Coach
Kepler has 15 men who can shoot
in the 70's.
Michigan fans can be cheered by
the fact that the Wolverines were
not at their best against Wayne. All
but Barclay were repeatedly missing
easy two and three foot putts and
time spent on the practice greens this
week will remedy that.
Elliott Expected to*Shoot in Low 70's
Pete Elliott can be expected to lop
three or four strokes off his 79 with a
little steadier play. Elliott looked
brilliant sinking a 25 footer on the
6th and dropping a chip shot two
inches from the cup on the 8th and
can be expected to settle down more
with each match.
Rog Kessler likewise should come
down to the middle 70's with a better
putting game. The usually dependable
Ed Schalon really had a bad day
Wednesday with an 82, but indica-
tions are that Schalon should soon
be shooting in the low 70's. Jerry De-
Vries expects to repeat his credible
79 and John Bennent is hoping for a
couple of encores on the 39 he card-
ed on the back nine. Barclay will be
out to equal his 72 par card.

Michigan's baseball squad will at-
tempt to take advantage of the Uni-
versity of Chicago's losing habit at
3:30 p.m. today at Ferry Field, in an
effort to extend the Wolverines' cur-
rent 23 game winning streak.
Coach Ray Fisher has assigned the
starting chore in the first of a two
game series with the Maroons to
Bliss Bowman. Fisher has indicated
that the little lefthander will work
the first six or seven innings and
that either Dick Savage or "Pro"
Boim would finish.
Weisenburger, Robinson Will Play
Shortstop Don Robinson, and cen-
ter fielder Jack Weisenburger, in-
jured since the start of the season,
are both ready for action. Their re-
turn to duty has forced Fisher to
alter his batting order.
The new lineup will feature Robin-
son and Weisenburger in the num-
ber three and four positions. This
will move Tom Rosema into the fifth
slot, and Bob Chapuis into number
six in the batting order.
The rest of the lineup will remain
the same with Walt Kell leading off,

followed by Bob Nussbaumer. The
tail end of the batting order remains
potent with Dom Tomasi batting
seventh, Elmer Swanson eighth, and
Bowman, the best hitting pitcher on
the squad ninth.
The return of Roiiuson gives the
Wolverines some badly needed left
handed hitting. Walt Kell, a switch
batter, and Bowman are the only
other portside hitters in the lineup.
