Wise To Iurl Opener Against
Miniuesot*a in Two-Game Series

Barring any further interference
from the weather that has put in its
appearance in each of the two pre-
vious week-ends, Cliff Wise will be
on the mound for the Michigan base-
ball team as it meets Minnesota to-
day in Minneapolis.
The weather, which forced a
double-header with Illinois and can-
cellation of both games with Indiana
last week-end, has seriously damp-
ened the Wolverines' hopes of taking
their third straight Big Ten crown.
Badgers Lead Big Ten
Wisconsin, the Big Ten leader with
a 6-1 record, entertains Ohio State's
Buckeyes in Madison today and to-
morrow. The Badgers have only been
rained out once and stand a good
chance of finishing the season with
a better percentage because of that
fact.
Michigan and Indiana are tied for
second with a 3-1 record. In order
that either of these teams win the
Big Ten title they must remain un-
defeated for the rest of their sched-
ule and have Wisconsin beaten or
rained out at least once in the rest
of its schedule,
Other games in the Conference
this week-end will see Indiana and
Illinois tangle at Champaign while
Iowa meets Northwestern at Evans-
ton.
Block or Bowman to Pitch
Either Earl Block or Bliss Bowman
will get the starting assignment in
tomorow's game against the Gophers.
Wise earned the right to start in
today's game by turning in two very
capable performances in his last two
starts. Last week the lanky speed ball
artist hurled a masterful four-hit
shut out against the Western Michi-
gan Broncos and just last Tuesday
gave but three singles to Notre Dame's
power-laden batting order in the five
innings he worked.
It will be of added interest to the
game to see what Michigan's batters
can do in their race for the Big Ten
batting crown. Elmer Swanson's six
for tis teen gives him an average of
.462 ir the four Big Ten games which
is good for second place behind Illi-
nois' hard hitting catcher Lee Eil-
bracht.
Walt Kell and Tom Rosema have
both hit the ball at a .400 clip in

CLIFF WISE-Who will seek his
third win of the season when he
hurls the first game of the Michi-
gan-Minnesota series today at Min-
neapolis.
Conference games and are still very
much in the running for the Confer-
encc batting honors.
Bowman, Block and Wise each have
a single Big Ten win to remain un-
defeated in Conference play. Wiscon-
sin's Gene Jaroch stands way out in
front in the hurling department with
four wins against no setbacks.

Golfers Prune
For Purdue
Tilt Tomorrow
Preparing for the Purdue match
this Saturday on the home links,
Michigan's golfers have spent the
better part of this week trying to im-
prove their putting prowess and short
game which tended to keep the
scores higher than necessary in pre-
vious contests.
Rog Kessler, in equaling par on the
Notre Dame course and firing 76
against the Illini, indicated that he
is a vastly improved player and a de-
finite asset to the squad,
Team Play Erratic
The remainder of ther team, how-
ever, has not lived up to the pre-
season notices and expectations. Al-
though the long play on the fairways
has been up to par, erratic putting
and pitch shots have sent the scores
climbing to regions which could be
avoided with more practice and de-
liberation.
This is true pariticuiarly in the case.
of top man, Dave Barclay, also Bill
Ramsey. If the number five and six
men do not improve by the time
Michigan journeys to Minneapolis for
the Conference championship
matches, they will find themselves be-
ing replaced by either varsity man
Dune Noble, or newcomers Hank
Zimmerman, Doug Beath, and Gerry
Devries according to Coach Bill Bar-
clay.
Favored Over Purdite
The Wolverine linksmien, who are
tunbeaten on the University of Michi-
gan Course so far this season, are
expecting little trouble from the
Boilermakers, who have been stopped
by Notre Dame, 16-11, on their home
grounds, and who have also lost to
Northwestern, a Maize and Blue vic-
tim this season.

KEN DOHERTY-Wolverine cind-
er coach will lead his underdog
track squad to Champaign for a
dual meet with Illinois' powerful
team tomorrow.
IlitiAre Heavy
.UFavorites Agai
Coach Ken Doherty's Scotch-Irish
geniality will face its stiffest test
this Saturday when the results of the
Michigan-Illinois dual track meet be-
gin to roll in, down Champaign way.
To say that the Illini aggregation
is loaded is to understate the case. It
is of definite pre-war vintage, 100
proof, and bottled in bond.
Illinois has three sprinters who can
cover the 100 in 9.8 seconds or better,
five who can run the 220 in 21.5, and
six quarter-milers who walk around
in the deepest of doldrums if they do
not crack the 50-second mark at this
distance.
Illinli have Speed Plus
For the most part, the rest of the
picture is just as dark and dreary. In
the high jump, pole vault, and hur-
dles, the Illini have in Dike Eddle-
man, Bob Richards, and George Wal-
ker respectively, competitors who
have turned in the best performances
in the nation.
Above all, there is Mr. "46.7" Mc-
Kenley in the 440 and mile relay. The
Maize and Blue quartet has been
forced to play the bridesmaid's role
to the Illinois "bride" all year, and re-
lief does not seem to be forthcoming
this week-end. The 3:18.1 mark of
the Champaign four is tops for the
country.
Michigan's chances for first place
lie in five events: the shot put, discus,
and two-mile; the 880 and the mile,
possibly, Chuck Fonville, the Wolver-
ines' great freshman prospect, should
win the shot put, and his brother
siege-gun, team Captain George Os-
troot, will take the discus. Dean
Voegtlen, on the basis of his last
week's performance, is a good bet
for the two-mile.
In the mile and half-mile, Bob
Thomason and Herb Barten will have
difficulty with Bob Rehberg, who ran
1:52 for the 880 before he went into
the service, but the two Maize and
Blue thinclads stand an excellent
chance of giving him a second-place
view of the finish in both contests.

the number 4, 5, and 6 singles men
and the second doubles team of Bill
Mikulich and Fred Wellington, who
displayed their best match play of
Sthe year by takingsNat Gileman and
Bob Norman 6-4, 2-6, 6-1.
Wellington Suffers First Setback
In the third singles' spot, Welling-
ton fell before Norman, a freshman
from Oak Park, who was a top rank-
ing player in the Illinois State high
school championships the past two
years, in two sets 6-4, 6-1. This set-
back ends Wellington's winning
streak at seven.
Northwestern's Bobby Jake downed
top seeded Jack Hersh, 2-6, 6-2, 6-4.
Jake starred on the 1941 team and
and just returned from military ser-
vice this semester to take over the
number one spot.
Mikulich also suffered defeat at
the hands of Larry Daly in a hard-
fought three-set duel 2-6, 6-4, 6-1.
Daly is another returned veteran, who
competed at Evanston high school,
was a member of the 1942 freshman
team, and looms as one of the most
outstanding Wildcat tennis prospects
since Seymour Greenberg captured
the Big Ten titles in 1940 and '41.
Weir's Experiment Pays Off
Coach Leroy Weir finally hit on the
proper four, five and six men, as each
of them brought in crucial points in
the win column. McClusky had a little
trouble with his opponent, Chuck
Lindquist, but eventually won 6-4,
3-6, 6-3. Jim Evans and Hal Cook
were the two other Wolverines gain-
ing victories.
Hersh and Evans were teamed in
the number one doubles, but were
overwhelmed by Jake and Daly in the
only two love-set match played this
year. This is the first time this Michi-
gan combination has been used since
the Illinois match.
Meet Ohio State Today
Weather permitting, Weit's inen
will face Ohio State this afternoon at
Evanston. Ohio State boasts of eight
lettermen, Aris Franklin, Big Ten
singles champion last year, being
among the players. He paired with his

brother, Alex, to win the Conference
doubles crown.
Ohio State was runner-up in the
Conference tournament to Michigan
in '45 and should prove to be a real
threat again this season.

with the fit of his head guard today
that he discarded it and slugged out
the final round of his workout with
George Fitch bare-headed.

of his world heavy-weight title
