GOPHERS MISS CUE:
M' Bilards Team Wins National Title
By IRV ZUCKER
Surprising even their most rab-
id' admirers, Michigan's shzrp-
shooting pocket billiiards team
edged past highly-favored Mirne-
sota and eight other national con-
tenders Wednesday evening to
capture the National Inter-Col.
With each squad performing on
home campuses, Wolverine cue-
mnen amassed 406 points for ten
innings of play at the Michigan
Union, three points ahead of run-
ner-up Minnesota. The Gophers
set an all-time scoring record of
615 points for 15 innings on Feb-
ruary 19 in winning the five sec-
Michigan Hits 80% Accu -,acy
Michigan, by virtue of a second-
place rank in the New England
and Eastern Section's opening
competition of pocket billiards,
qualified for national play Wed-
nesday along with nine other lead-
ing clubs. Recording a better than
80,% accuracy range, the, five-man
Wolverine squad gave an artful
exhibition of pool playing.
Mark Abend, Detroit's gifted
billiards ace, once again emerged
as Michigan's high man, this time
with 87 points. Abend, also top
point-producer on the three cush-
ions team, had a high run of 55.
Andy Paton registered an admir-
able 86 mark, followed closely by
Joe Soboleski's 83, Andy Sullivan's
82, and Jim Mummey's 68.
Don Krueger, manager of the
championship combination, attri-
buted the team's success to the
constant practicing at the Union
and the clever shooting at game-
time. "The boys anticipated their
shots well, and seemed to be
ahead of themselves at all times,"
On April 15, the National Grand
Championship Invitational will be
held at Purdue University, with
men's singles in pockets, straight
rail, and three-cushions billiards.
In these events, competition will
be on a "personal contact" bas-
is for individual honors.
Wolverines Win Trophy
Michigan will receive from the
Billiards Association of America a
national championship trophy,
which will be retained by the Un-
ion until the next annual tourna-
ment. Members of the pocket
billiards team will be presented
with keys emblematic of partici-
pation with a winning outfit.
Originally 27 colleges and uni-
versities throughout the nation
competed in the pocket billiards
events. Final stanidings' are as
follows: Michigan, Minnesota,
Kentucky, Ohio State, Wisconsin,
Utah, Purdue, Florida, Oklahoma,
and St. Joseph.
Final play-offs in straight rail
and three cushion billiards will be
held this month.

In the 1946 meeting, the Michi-

underdogs to the highly-touted

the biggest upset of the indoor

plenty of spirit and form to edge

From the Purdue Relays' inaug-

Slugging Highlights Program
Of Nine Three Round Matcerie
By JERRY ALEXANDER
ICHIGAN'S first All Campus Boxing Tournament got off to a spec-
tacular start last night as an overflow crowd of 1200 spectators
roared their approval at the nine bouts run off in th emain gym of
the Intramural Building.
Steps into Golf
If determination and love of
the sport you coach can spell
success then Bert Katzenmeyer,
youthful golf mentor, is in for
a very rosy first year at Michigan.
Katzenmeyer's life, by his own
admission, "has been and will con-
tinue to be wrapped up in golf."
He started swinging his clubs at
the very early age of seven and
has played regularly for 22 of
his 29 years.
He is turning pro for the first
time now, as his new job means
he can no longer compete as an
amateur. But he does not ex-
pect to compete as a pro since
he has "neither the tempera-
ment nor the game for the big
Instead, he stated, in a recent
interview, "I'm primarily concern-
ed with developing boys who show
an interest in golf and I shall
give all my time to those men who
want to play the game. I want
to see golf take its deserved place
Katzenmeyer has played plenty
of golf and is still as enthusiastic
about it as he ever was. He play-
ed for Ann Arbor High from 1934
through 1937 'and led the Pioneers
to the Grand Rapids Country Club
title in 1936. During that year he
captained and was number 1 man
on the championship squad.
He learned the golf game from
top to '1ottom in his early years,
starting as a caddy at the Huron
Hills, and both the old and new
University courses. He learned
greenskeeping under the venerable
Bill Slack, present greenskeeper
at the University Course.
lle played on the Scott Field
golf team in 1945, teaming withI
Pat Abbott, duration amateur
champ. Discharge came along
in February of 1946 and he took
a job as assistant to Bill Bar-
clay, former Maize and Blue
golf coach. In the fall he join-
ed the teaching staff of Ohio
State, and a little over a week
ago took over the reins of the
Wolverine link squad.
Katzenmeyer is studying for his
Master's degree in physical edu-
cation which is expected in June,
and after that he hopes to spend
"as much time as possible in
The fights had everything,
ranging from toe to toe slug-
ging to superior displays of box-
ing skill and finesse. The fight-
ers gave everything they had
and most of the fights ended
with both contestants just about
out on their feet.
Dick Kuder and Joe Stone at
127 pounds opened the card with
a real display of slugging. Stone
started the second round with
some comical antics reminiscent
of Maxies Baer but Kuder fighting
a cagy bout against his aggress-
ive foe soon took the offensive
and went on to win easily 90-58.
In the 135-pound class Morrie
Koblanz and Milt Higgs kept
things humming as they set a
fast pace for the three round bout.
Koblanz kept moving in continu-
ously connecting with rights and
lefts to the head, as Higgs, dis-
playing good form, countered
heavy and often. At the bell both
fighters were slugging it out al-
though neither had the strength
to put the other away for the
count. Higgs was the winner in
a close split decision 90-81.
At 145 pounds Bob Harrison
won a unanimous decision from
John Thoriault as he displayed
beautiful boxing form in keep-
ing Theriault in hand all the
way. Using a sweet left jab
he continuously kept his foe on
the defensive and in the third
round had Theriault on the
ropes but the latter refused to
drop and, stayed the limit.
.Jack Keeler and Chuck Tower
got off to a fast start in the 145
pound clash. Despite two rounds
of slugging the pace actually pick-
ed up in the last round as each
fighter poured it on. At the fin-
al bell the points were knotted
and as Intercollegiate rules for-
bid ties the referee had to make a
choice and Keeler got the nod.
In the 155 pound division Don
Ayers proved too much for Andy
Kerr. Kerr continually moved in
as Ayers retaliated with a heavy
body attack to win 90-53.
Bill Muha outclassed Jack
Hallberg in another 155 pound
bout as Muha used his longer
reach to good advantage. Hall-
berg kept on throwing leather
but Muha's defense wti~s too
tight as the latter went on to
take a decision 87-77.
In the lightheavies, it was again
a case of boxing skill as Linus
Litsey outpointed Herb Furman
90-58. Litsey, a former Golden
Glove competitor used a left hook
throughout and didn't let Furman
throw his right.
At the same weight, Mark
Abend scored a victory over his
taller opponent Carl Roth. Abend
used a powerful left hook that had
Roth groggy but hanging on at
The heavyweight bout proved
a fitting climax to the evening's
card. Dick Kempthorn and Al
.Jackson came out slugging and
stood toe to toe for the three
rounds. At the end, both fighters
were bloody from the terrific pace
and were so absorbed in the slug-
fest neither heard the bell. Kemp-
thorn was given the nod 85-8L in
i split decision.
Candidates for Spring foot-
ball should report any daynext
week at Yost Field house to
draw equipment for practice
which will begin March 31.
