By ChUCK LEWIS
Vying for their third Western Con-
ference victory of the season, Michi-
gan's varsity tennis team will tangle
with the Wildcats of Northwestern
this efternon in Evanston in the
first of t~rec Big Ten matcec ghat;
the nctmen will have away this xwcck-
Tomorrow the ne'tc's w Al fan;
Ohio also in Evanston, while their
adversaries for- Saturday will b. the
netn ien f o Minnesota. The Gopher
mal eh will be held in Chicago.
llersh .n Condition
Coach Leroy Weir is taking the
same men with him for this series of
three matches that played in the
contests against Purdue and Indiana
three weeks ago when his charges
chalked up their twvo Conference wins,
7-2 and 9-0, respectively.
Jack Hersh has been hindered by
a slight side injury this week as a
result of the Chicago match last
Saturday, but he will probably be
ready to go against the Wildcats this
afternoon. He will be trying for his
fifth conquest at his usual number
one singles spot. Hersh has three
losses.on his record.
Welington, Mikulich To Play
Fred Wellington will again compete
at the number three position and will
vie for his eighth consecutive victory
of the campaign. Bill Mikulich will
handle the number two assignment
and will attempt to bring his season's
play up to the .500 mark. To date,
Mikulich has three victories as against
Dean McClusky and Jim Evans
will play their accustomed number
four and five slots.,Their play has
been consistent all season and carry
the bulwark of the balancing factor
on this year's squad.
Cook in Sixth Slot
Hal Cook, who has not competed
in singles play in the netmen's last
two matches will return to the lineup
in the six position. He has a record
of three wins and two reversals. Cook
saw action in doubles competition
against Western Michigan but was
kept idle as Michigan lost to the Ma-
roons of Chicago last week-end, 5-4.
Mickey Dayton, who played atV
number six singles against the Bron-
cos and Chicago and didn't lose aa
match, did not make this trip withb
the team. Dayton also played number
one doubles with Hersh in these con-s
Doubles Teams Changedt
Weir will change his doubles com-t
binations and will revert to the duost
that competed in the Illinois meet.
Evans will team with Hersh in theI
number one combo. Evans has played
doubles recently, but will get his
chance again today. Wellington andv
Mikulich will be the number twov
*The regular number three pair of-
McClusky and Paul Schoenlaub will
again play at that position. This com-
bination has won five of the six
matches that they have played to-
gether in the number three slot.
Their lone loss was to the combo
BOB THOMASON ... will seek to
establish his superiority in the mile
run over Bob Rehberg of Illinois
Trouble Predicted for
Michigan's track team appears to
be heading for an extremely rough
week-end when it travels to Cham-
paign, Ill. this Saturday to take on
an Illinois power-house that has
been setting the cinders afire all sea-
If the Illini thinclads run true to
form they may not only emerge vic-
torious but even succeed in doubling
the score on the Wolverines, a feat
that hasn't been accomplished since
Ohio State's 80-42 triumph in 1942.
Illini Have Top Times
A comparison of times chalked up
in last Saturday's duel meets pro-
vide a fairly good indication of things
to come. Illini runners recorded bet-
ter times than Michigan in ten events
in their lop-sided 90-32 trouncing of
The only places where the Wolver-
ines achieved top performances were
in the 2-mile, shot put, discus, and
possibly the broad jump. In the latter
Illini Dwight Eddleman took third
behind a winning leap of 23 feet,
while Bob Baker of Michigan cap-
tured first at Notre Dame with 21 ft.
Twomey's Run Dead Heat
Dean Voegtlen's 9:55.8 effort in the
2-mile was much better than the
best the Illini had to offer. The Two-
ney brothers, Vic and John, ran a
dead heat for Illinois in 10:02.
Although Bob Rehberg of the Il-
ini ran the best half-mile and mile
-aces last week-end, both were only
a second faster than the Wolverine
imes. Michigan's Bob Thomason has
a very good chance of nipping Reh-
berg in the mile and Herb Barten
nay nose out Rehberg and Dave
Badell in the 880. The two can easily
turn out to be feature races of the
Notre Dame's Pitcher
Stopped by Wolverines
At least four major league scouts
came out to Ann Arbor in vain Tues-
day as they gave Notre Dame's highly
touted right handed pitcher, Jack
Barrett the once-over.
Wish Egan of the Tigers headed
the delegation of talent seekers that
included George Sisler of the Dodgers,
Fred Hunter of the Red Sox and
Johnny Haddock of the Yankees.
Wolverines Get Nine Hits
The Irish ace didn't come near to
living up to his reputation of the
outstanding pitcher in college base-
ball, as the Wolverines scored seven
runs ontnine hits during the seven
innings that Barrett worked.
It was the fourth time in three
years that the big right-hander has
failed to finish a game against the
Wolverines. Last year the Wolverines
drove him from the mound twice in
his two starts, while in 1944 Michigan
knocked him out of the box once.
Robinson Steals Home
Barretttreated the 3,000 fansgand
the scouts that attended the game
to one of the cardinal sins that a
pitcher can commit, letting a base
runner steal home. Shortstop Don
Robinson, .after stealing second and
moving to third on an infield hit,
took long leads on the first two
Then, as . the big right-hander
started his windup, Robinson started
for home and slid in under the pitch,
which sailed back to the screen.
Yet the major leagues got a line
on several of the Wolverine stars.
Robinson gave a fancy exhibition in
the field as did Dom Tomasi. Michi-
gan's second baseman was credited
with five assists and four putouts
for his afternoon's work.
Cliff Wise, Michigan's starting
hurler, showed off his fast ball and
slow curve to good advantage'as he
retired eight out of the first nine men
to come to bat. The only man to reach
first in the first three frames got
there on an error.
Chappuis, Swanson Hit
Bob Chappuis and Elmer Swanson,
each making two hits, gave the scouts
a sample of the fine hitting that
they have been doing this season as
the leading batsmen for the once

[NIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, host to the 1946 version of the NCAA
track and field championships, has released an advance sheet listing
the best marks by trackmen throughout the country thus far in the season.
This column welcomed such a turnabout from the provincialism of our mid-
As was expected, University of Illinois dominates the advance.
Hurryin' Herb McKenley holds two marks, a sizzling :46.7 quarter, and
an equally hot :20.8 220, both run in inclement weather. George Walker
established the best time for the 220-yd. low hurdles, scissoring the bar-
riers in :23.4, nosing out both Ralph Tate, of the Oklahoma Aggies, and
Craig Dixon of UCLA, who recorded :23.5 seconds for the event.
LITTLE BILLY MATHIS. another of the brilliant stars of the Orange and
Blue, shares the spotlight in the 100-yd. dash with Allen Lawler of Texas
and Meel Patton of Southern California. Their best time thus far - :09.7.
The Illini also have the best marks in the pole vault and high jump.
Bob Richards has soared over the bar at 13 ft. 8 in. while Dwight Edde-
man holds a 7 8 in. edge over Tom Scofield of Kansas and Ken Weisner
of Marquette, all of whom have leaped 6 ft. 6 in.
WINDING UP the laurels for the trackmen from Champaign, the Illinois
mile relay quartet has outjitterbugged the nation with a 3:18.1 clocking
for that distance, nosing out Army, Navy, and Michigan.
Ralph Tate of Oklahoma A&M, second best in the low hurdles, tops
both Baldwin-Wallace's Harrison Dillard and Walker of Illinois in the
120 highs, with the excellent time of :14 seconds. Tate established this
mark in the Texas Relays.
THE SPARTANS of Michigan State slipped a representative under the
wire at the last minute, when Walter Mack ripped off a 1:56.4 half mile
in a dual meet against Marquette last Saturday. Ralph Gold of UCLA is the
only other runner near the Spartan, his time being 1:57.1.
The highly publicized Roland Sink from USC finally came through
with a noteworthy performance in the mile run, when he came home in
4:15.3 in a dual meet at Westwood, California, pitting the Uclans against
their arch rival, Southern Cal's Trojans. Other milers of note are Bob
Rehberg of Illinois, Bill Leonard of the Irish from South Bend, and Bob
Thomason of Michigan, all closely bunched around the 4:25.0 mark.
NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, perennially a top competitor on the cinders,
presents its top distance ace, Frank Martin, who thus far is unchallenged
in his distance, the two mile. Martin ran a strong 9:49.9 race for the Violets
as they absorbed a lacing from Army last weekend. Michigan's Dean Voeg-
tlen is next in line with a creditable 9:55.8, which is three seconds better
than the two-mile of Indiana's Earl Mitchell.
Southern California, track despot of the west coast, trotted out Al
Lawrence in the broad jump recently, and he promptly complied with an
excellent leap of 24 ft. 11 in. The versatile Ralph Tate of the Okla-
homa Aggies is separated from this mark by two inches, his supreme
effort yielding a 24 ft 93/8 in. jump.
THERE IS LITTLE to choose between Tex Coulter of Army and Big Bill
Bangert of Purdue is the shot put. Bangert has 3 14 in. edge over the
giant from West Point. Bernard Mayer tops the discus throwers with a
mark of 150 ft. 32 in., which places Orville Yocum of Peru College, (Nebras-
ka) and George Ostroot of Michigan slightly behind by a foot.
