(2olleoe i ixhibition Match

To Face Kalamazoo

Coach Ken Doherty announced
yesterday that a 15-man track
team will represent Michigan to-
tmorrow at the annual runinug of1
1,h1z Illinois Tech Itchy" tat Cl'ri-
T he Wolverine coach hadi oririi-
nally intended to take a much
larger squad and shoot definitely
for the team championship. Ill-
ness, however, struck in a vital
spot when Don Queller, ace mid-
die distance runner, was hospital-
ized last Monday by the bronchi-
tis that has been plaguing him for
the past month.
Team Title Hopes Fade
The vacancies created by Quel-
ler's absence just about preclude
:my chance Michigan may have
lead to take the Relays title. Coach
Doherty was counting on him for
important roles in the two-mile
and distance medley relays and
probably the sprint medley.
There is a strong possibility also
that quarter-miler Dick Forres-
tel may not make the Chicago trip.
The press of his work in law school
makes any absence from 'Ann
Arbor difficult to manage.
Relay Teams Hit

mile ielay Coach Doherty is con-
sidering Val Johnson, who ran on
last year's quartet, Joe Hayden, or
lerlaps John Witherspoon. The
other three lees should be handled
capably by Bob Mann, George
Shepherd, and Herb Barten.
Shephtrd May Double
The two '220' legs in the sprint
medley will be run by two of three
men: Mann, Johnson, and With-
erspoon. Shepherd will probably
double back for the opening quar-
ter, while either Barten or Hay-
den could finish it off with the
Captain Charlie Birdsall will be
the back-bone of the dcstance
medley outfit. He is slated for the
anchor mile leg, which, in this
grueling event, is the leg that
really counts. Chuck Low, who
ran the best miie of his career last
Saturday at Champaign, may
take the 34-mile role, Shepherd
the quarter, and either Hayden or
Barten the initial half-mile.
In addition to the relays, Michi-
gan will have Big Nine Champion
Charlie Fonville and Pete Den-
drinos in the shot put, Bob Har-
ris and Bob Gardner in the high
jump, Ed Ulvestad and Gene
Moody in the pole vault, and Jack
Martin in the low hurdles.

GI Tenina To Face Old Pals
As Nine Opposes Cap iLee

100% WOOL
State Street on Cainpus

The Misfits encountered little
difficulty fitting the round ball
into the round basket as they out-
classed the Rangers, 51-26, last
night to enter the final round of
the Independent League tourna-
ment slated for the I-M Open
House, March 26.
After the first few minutes of
uneventful play, the Misfits began
to click with Bob Revis giving
them a commanding lead which
was never seriously threatened.
Revis paced the attack accounting
for 22 points, while Hy Warshaw-
sky controlled both backboards
for the winners.
The Phys. Ed quintet took un-
disputed title of the second Inde-
pendent League by edging the
Goosers, 47-40, and next face the
Rebels. The winner of this tilt
will advance to the finals against
the Misfits.
Phys. Ed Bob Holloway's thir-
teen tallies was the highest indi-
vidual count for both squads, but
guard Lou proctor's steadiness
kept the Phys. Eds coordinated.
'Whiz Kid' Gene Vance
Joins Western All-Stars

Cpl. Wally Teninga will be
hoping for a Wolverine setback
when Coach Ray Fisher's lads in-
vade the Camp Lee (Va.) diamond
on April 6 in the course of their
first southern expedition since the
And Wallopiri' Wally will per-
sonally be "up front" to inflict
the desired punishment in the
role of the starting second-
sacker for Camp Lee.
Teninga, better known at Ann%
Arbor for his sensational grid-
iron exploits on Michigan's 1945
football machine as a first-stringI
freshman wingback, picks up that
"permanent furlough" this sum-
mer upon the completion of an 18-
month Army enlistment.
Although he may oc wearing
a Maize and Blue baseball uni-
form next year, Wally appears
to be more concerned with the
"We open our season against
Michigan, and naturally we'd like
to celebrate the occasion with a'
big victory," related the 19-year-
old GI ballplayer. "Call this treas-
on-but I like to play o the win-
ning side."
Wally has been playing chain-
pionship ball ever since his school
days at Chicago's Morgan Park
High. A natural athlete, he belted
a gaudy .460 in his final season
with the baseball club to lead his
teammates, but three years of
brilliant play on the gridiron
highlighted his scholastic career.
The Windy City athlete ar-

rived at Ann Arbor in the fall of
1945, and put in a season of
dazzling football for Fritz Cris-
ler before volunteering for
Army service in February, 1946.
Striving to keep in condition,
the zealous youngster played
Army football at Camp Lee last
year with an array of ex-college
stars, including George Talia-
ferro; Indiana's gallopin sensc-
tion of 945.
A fractured ankle halted Wally
late in the season, but his accur-
ate passing and break-away jaunts
on the gridiron figured promient-
ly in Camp Lee's 10-2 record and
the Middle Atlantic Service
"My ankle hasn't been bother-
ing me since the cast was re-
moved last Christmas," he said.
"I've been doing quite a bit of
running with the baseball team,
and my wind is in better shape
than I thought."
Wally is anxious to resume his
Michigan pigskin career this fall,
although he was almost tempted
to transfer to the Naval Academy
at Annapolis via the college cer-
tificate method.
"Early this month I visited
the Academy where I had a
good talk with Capt. Tom 11am-
ilton, the Middie football coach,"
said Teninga. "I came pretty
close to switching colleges, but
I thought it over more carefully.
There was only one answer--

Coach Bob Dixon's tennis squad
gets its shakedown cruise prior to
the southern tour when the Wol-
verine netters meet Kalamazoo
College in a pre-season exhibition
match at the Sports Building at
3:00 p.m. today.
The two teams, which are
scheduled to meet officially at
Kalamazoo on May 20, are both
preparing for vacation trips to
Dixie, and today's match will
be their only competition before
beginning their tours.

Stowe, are perenially one of the
strongest college tennis powers in
the nation. Last season the Hor-

This coming Saturday at 2:30

Michigan is not represented be-
cause there is no gymnastic team
sanctioned by the university to-
date. The members of the Gym-
nastic Club however, are going to
make the trip down to Champaign,.
to see what this sort of comnpeti-
tion looks like.
Tr'iampoline Exhibition
'rhey have been invited by the
University of Illinois to put on a
trampoline exhibition for the
crowd of spectators. Thus, if
Michigan should get a formal
team for next year's competition,
the boys would know just what it
takes to win a championship in
this sport.
Now that they are through with
their between half exhibitions at
the local basketball games, the
club has been actively touring the
area putting orf'shows for numer-
ous groups.
Six More Engagements
Their recent excursions include
Flint, Lansing, and the Ann Ar-
bor IHigh School. The gmynasts
now have six more engagements
,o fill in the next two months and
(heir activity for this season will
be finished.
The fellows who have been fill-
ing these engagements and who
are making the trip down to
Champaign include, Glenn Neff,
Tom Tillman, Bob Schoendube,
Dave Lake, Bob Willoughby, and
the coach Newt Loken.

Alex lhetzkl:, N.i iojn cii Junior
Indoor Champion, will probably
play at number one for tlhI br -

The rest of the Kalamazoo line-
up has not been announced, but

The rest of Dixon's singles line-
up will see Fred Otto at number
two, Bill Mikulich, at three, Dean
McCluskey, four, Fred Zieman,
five, and Hal Cook, in the number
six spot.
Third Pair Undecided
Paton and Otto are Michigan's
number one doubles duo, with
Mikulich and McCluskey, the
number two unit. Dixon has not
decided on his third pair as yet,
either the combination of Zieman
and Mickey Dayton, or the Dick
Lincoln-Butch Skgu pair will get
the call.
