Kell and Bob Chappuis each hit
safely one to account for the 8 safeties
made off southpaw Ed Rossi.
The Broncos managed to get three
men on base in he first two innings
without being able to push a run
across the plate. The Wolverines
scored in the bottom of the second
o one hit and a sacrifice. Chappuis
stole second after his only hit of the
afternoon and was sacrificed to third
by Dom Tomasi. Then followed
Swanson's tremendous fly to center
that was caught by Plecer's sensa-
tional stab.

Groggel bobbled and lost, moving
to second as Weisenburger went to
third. Tomasi walked setting the
stage for Swanson's big blow.
The Western outfield was playing
at least fifty feet deeper for Swanson
when the back stop lifteda long
drive to right center. Only a stab by
the rghtfielder kept the ball from
going into the tennis courts. Swanson
was put out at home on Wise's hit
to the infield and Bob Nussbaumer
ended the inning by flying out to
deep centerfield.
Last Run in Seventh
The final tally came in the seventh,
Kell lead of with a single, stole sec-
ond and came home on Robinson's
second hit of the afternoon.
The Michigan team travels to De-
troit today to meet the University of
Detroit. Earl Block is expected to be
on the mound for the Wolverines.

Michigan State's golf team will
furnish the opposition for the Wol-
verines today when they encounter
the Spartan linksmen at East Lan-
sing in the sixth match of the 1946
The MaizetandBlue linksmen will
be shooting to make it two straight
over the MSC squad. In the opening
contest, Michigan scored a decisive
victory by trouncing the Spartans,
A six man match will be the or-
der of the day in the esecond meet-
ing of these two teams. Coach Bill
Barclay announced that four mem-
bers of the traveling team saw
action in the initial tilt against the
Spartans, with the newcomers be-
ing Bill Courtright and Gerry
Teeing off in his usual number one
spot wil be Dave Barclay followed by
Ed Schalon. Pete Elliott and Court-
right will fill the third and fourth
positions respectively, with Roger
Kessler and DeVries rounding out the
Maize and Blue juggernaut.

Even tholui micihirm.mn was victori-
ous in last k's co sts wi th the
University i) 1 )troit and North-
western, the Wolverine's scores were
relatively high. Probably a great deal
can be credited to the adverse wea-
ther conditions, with high winds and
wet fairways hampering the players.
The only one of Barclay's charges to
card in the 70's was Courtright who
marked a 77 in both encounters.
Elliott and Barclay who can be
counted on to shoot in the 70's,
were above their usual marks. The
former had two 87's, and the Maize
and Blue's number one linksman
ended the week-end's competition
with scores of 82 and 83.

Weir Coached Tennis Sqiads
Take Three Big Ten Crowns


Piloting the varsity tennis squad
towards another Big Ten Conference
Championship is Coach Leroy Weir,
who since his arival at Michigan in
1937, has turned out title winning
squads in 1941, 1944, and 1945.
Members of the team can be cer-
tain of Weir's practical experience
for he has a lengthly record of
tennis as well as squash tourna-
ment play, a sport in which he also
As a tennis player, ne was one of
the best in this section, having
been singles' champion of Cleve-
land three times, winning the Chi-
cago and Illinois State Champion-
ship in '28, and in that year rank-
ing third in the Middlewest, being
led by only George Lott and Em-
mett Pare, two of the finest racket
handlers the mid-west has seen.
For the last three years, Weir has
captured the Hamtramck Invitation-
al Doubles crown, each time with a

different partner. He has also held
the Ann Arbor City Championship.
In squash rackets, Weir turned in a
spectacular record in his lone year of
amateur competition in Michigan. He
captured both the State and Western
singles' titles and finished the '38
season by being runner-up to Ger-
main Gliddle of New York in the
National Tournament.
On accepting the position of ten-
nis coach at Michigan, Weir be-
came ineligible for further com-
petition as an amateur contestant
and concentrated on obtaining an
advanced degree in physical educa-
tion at his old Alma Mater.
In 1941 the Tennis Club of Detroit
invited Weir to serve as a profes-
sional. There he gave instruction to
net enthusiasts.
Besides his tennis duties on cam-
pus, Weir teaches classes in the school
of Education and serves as advisor
for undergraduate men majoring in
physical education.
