LANSING. May 23 -- Michigan
State's varsity team received its see-
ond defeat at the hands of the Wol-
verines in a return match yesterday
as Coach Leroy Weir's charges
squeezed out a 5-4 victory on the sun-
baked Spartan courts.
Revenge was oh so sweet for Michi-
gan's leadoff man Jack Hersh who
defeated his Spartan adversary, Ro-
ger Cessna, by the lop-sided score of
0-6, 6-2, 6-2. Hersh lost to Cessna
the first time he faced him earlier+
in the season.
Bill Mikulich, Woiverine num-
her two man, after having bowed to
MSC's Bob Malaga on their first
meeting, evened the score yester-
day as he smashed his way to a
timely three set victory, 3-6, 6-4,
6-3. Malaga is a former Ohio state
prep tennis champ.
Michigan's regular number three
man, Fred Wellington, was unable to
make the trip to East Lansing and
the Wolverines' four, five, and six
men were moved up one slot, each as
Paul Schoenlaub took over the nuth-
ber six singles assignment.

After dropping his first set. 5-7,
Dean McClusky took hold and swept
the remaining two, 6-3, 6-0, to de-
feat State's Dave Phillips. Herb Hoo-
ver, MSC's number four man, and a
returning letterman, played steady
tennis in defeating Michigan's Jack
Evans, 6-2, 6-2.
Michigan's dependable Hal Cook
defeated State's Carl Frann in two
quick sets, 6-2, 6-2, to chalk up his
eighth victory of the season in
singles competition. Schoenlaub,
who made his second singles ap-
pearance yesterday, dropped his
match to Spartan Mike Yatchnan,
3-, 7-9.
IHersh took sick at the end of his
match and as a result the scheduled
number one doubles was temporarily
delayed as he underwent first aid
treatment. With the score riding at
4-2 in favor of Michigan, the Wolver-
ines' number two team of McClusky
and Evans encountered State's Phil-
lips and Frann. After splitting the
first two sets, 6-2, 2-6, the Spartans
took the third set, 6-4, and the match.
to bring their team within one point
of the Wolverines.
Michigan's number three duet, of
"ave Post and Mickey Dayton met
with the s:ame misfortune and drop-
ped their match to State's team of
Malaga and Martin, 3-6, 2-6, knot-
ting the score at 4 all.
Meanwhile, Hersh had been re-
vived and he and Mikulich took the,
court against State's number one
combo of Cessna and Hoover in
the deciding match of the day. The
Wolverines took the first set, 6-4,
and were trailing 4-5 in the second
when the Spartans won the add as
set point hung in the balance. This
was the turning point of the match
for the Michigan duet rallied in
the clutch to win the point and
from there on to sweep the next
three games and the match, to
hand the Wolverines a timely 5-4
Yesterday's win brought Michigan's'
record for the season up to eight vic-
tories against four defeats. The Wol-
verines next match is scheduled with
Notre Dame at South Bend, Saturday.

OSU Thinclads
Out To Break
Wolverine jinx
Ihwkheyes IPriimed for
lx ((1 Here Sal Hrdfy
When Coach Larry Snyder brings ,
his strong Ohio State track squad to
Ann Arbor tomorrow, he will be try-
ing to break a jinx that has kept the
Buckeyes from defeating the Maize
and Blue on its home track during
the 29 year span of the rivalry.
Enjoying thir most successful sea-
son since 1942, the Ohio State thin-
clads have compiled an impressive
record with successive victories over
Indiana, Purdue, Michigan State, and
Penn State.
Judging by past performances, the
outcome of the meet may be in doubt
until the final event, the mile relay,
is run. In Conference competition
this year, the speedy Illinois quar-
tet has been the only mile relay team
to break the tape ahead of the Wol-
verine foursome.
Coach Ken Doherty has relied
mainly on the combination of Bill
Haidler, Val Johnson, Hap Coleman
and Hugh Short to capture the relay
points for the Maize and Blue. In
the dual meet with Illinois last week-
end. Short and Coleman came
through with their fastest quarter-
miles of the season, being clocked
47.6 and 47.7 respectively.
Johnson sped through his leg of
the relay in 49.6, his best time to date.
Haidler, who usually leads off for
the relay quartet, may not start Sat-
urday, since he has been bothered
by a bad knee all week. In his place
Doherty will use either Ron Soble,
who has hit 51.0 for the 440, or Herbj
Barten, indoor Conference half-mile
champion, who has stepped the quar-
ter in 50.2.
Ohio State's fast mile relay team
has been clocked in 3:23. In Carl
Baynard the Buckeyes have a 49.0
quarter-miler for the lead-off posi-
tion. Dick Bennett will run the sec-
ond leg of the relay, while Stu Reid,
who won the 440-yard dash in 50.4
against Penn State last week-end, will
take care of the third quarter-mile.

mark against Big Ten pitching, and
Shortstop Johnny Galvin and third

at .333.
Following Anderson in the batting
order will be Olin Martin left fielder,
after whom will bat the hard hit-

You've waited a long time for this first peacetime summer-now there's every
reason you can have that perfect vacation you've dreamed about. Playspots, sum-
mer resorts and hotels will be at their best, and Greyhound has increased its service
to an all-time peak-with special Express buses, more frequent schedules, other
improvements. But millions of others have been waiting

and dreaming too-so plan ahead.
Check with the Greyhound agent on the best time to
go-he may recommend a certain time of day ... or a mid-
week departure. Perhaps you'll find it best to arrange
your trip after the summer rush-when Autumn high-
ways are at their colorful best. Certainly you'll want con-
firmed reservations where you're stopping overnight.
Wherever you go-go Greyhound, for convenience,
for comfort, for dollar-saving economy. Whatever you
