Trackmen To Clash with
California in Dual Meet
Doherty To Take 20 Thinclads on Trip;
Bears Make Season's Debut Against 'M'
Whistled renditions of "California Here I Come" reverberated
through the track locker room this week as 20 of Coach Ken Doherty's
thinclads looked forward to leaving tomorrow for Berkeley, Cal.,
where they will face the University of California in the first outdoor
dual meet of the year next Saturday.
As far as predicting who will come out on the long end of the
score, Doherty declared that you could "pick the winner out of a hat."
Little is known about the strength of the Bears' track team since this
will be the first meet of the year for the Californians, who do not
have an indoor season behind them.
Queller To Run 880
Michigan's power will make itself felt in the middle distance
events with Don Queller, who re-
turns to action after being out of
hcompetition for a month, and

University of Maryland at College Park Maryland.

47 Season
Maize and Blue natators will
write finis to a very successful
season tonight and tomorrow
when they compete in the Nation-
al AAU championships at Colum-
Climaxing the affair will be
the heralded meeting between
Alex Jany of France and Dick
Weinberg, American champion
in the 50 and 100-yard free-
styles.. Weinberg, in his last
practice before leaving for Co-
lumbus, was clocked in :49.8
for the century, only one-tenth
of a second off the existing
world's record.
Charlie Moss, who has been
cholastically ineligible, will make
he trip to the AAU's and may be
able to compete under Michigan
colors. Moss has continued to
practice daily and turned in a
51.6 clocking for the "100" in his
ast outing.
If Moss can compete that will
give Michigan another fine free-
tyler and materially aid the 400-
yard relay quartet. AAU regula-
ions allow a man to enter three
ndividual events and two relays

It is possible now for Wein-

the 100-yard freestyle in addi-
tion to the 150-yard backstroke
and the two relays.
Bob Sohl will continue in his
wo events, the 200-yard breast-
troke and the medley relay, while
ivers Alex Canja and Gil Evans
will compete in both the high and
ow board events.
Gus Stager will swinin the
220 and 440-yard freestyles and
possibly may enter the 1500
meter marathon. He will also
swim the second leg on the 400-
yard relay team if Moss is able
to compete.

Lin ksinen To Face
Six Southern Foes
When Michigan's golf team
opens the season Monday at
Washington and Lee in the first
of their six southern matches,
Bert Katzenmeyer, the new Wol-
verine linksmaster, will carefully
view the play of his boys whom
he described yesterday as "com-
pletely cold."
The eight "marked" Wolverine
golfers-Capt. Dave Barclay, Ed
Schalon, Bill Courtwright, Rog
Kessler, Pete Elliott, John Jens-
wold, Bill Ludolph, and Paul
O'Hara--will accompany Katzen-
meyer on the 2,000 mile Dixie
tour tomorrow morning in one of
the University's 12-passenger lim-
No Practice
"The boys haven't had a chance
to go outdoors at all in the four
weeks of spring practice," declar-
ed the youthful Wolverine coach,
"but our opponents have been out
on the links during this period-
we'll be at a definite disadvantage
when we tee off."
Katzenmeyer added that he has
no inkling whatsoever of the
strength of the southern golf.
teams the Wolverines will face.
Stage Intra-Squad Play
In an effort to "get at least one
round on the course before we
meet anybody," Katzenmeyer an-
nounced that lie hopes to stage a
little intra-squad competition
Sunday on the White Sulphur
Springs (Va.) fairways, site of
Sammy Snead's home course.
After Monday's opening affair
with Washington and Lee, the
Wolverine linksmen face Virginia
Polytechnic Institute on Tuesday,
and the University of Virginia the
following day.
Face Tar Heels
Katzenmeyer takes his troupe
into Tarheel territory to meet
Duke University on Wednesday,
April 12, and the University of
North Carolina on Thursday.
Michigan treks back to Virginia
a week from today to climax the
southern jaunt at Randolph-Ma-
con College.
All candidates for freshman
baseball will report to Coach
Ernie McCoy at the freshman
baseball diamond at the south-
east end of Ferry Field at 3:30
p.m. Monday, April 14. All can-
didates will furnish their own
gloves and shoes.

Determination Plus
So determined are Michigan's
golf aspirants for the four re-
maining varsity posts that two
of them-Ken Burke and Mort
Cohn-have made special ar-
rangements to spend their en-
tire spring vacation at Hot
Springs, Arkansas "to do noth-
ing but play golf."
After dropping the first two
games, Harry Goldberg took the
measure of Sanford Perlman in
the final three to become the All-
campus Table Tennis champion.
Perlman won the initial games,
21-19 and 21-11, but then Gold-
berg's shots began to clip the edg-
es of the table. He won the fol-
lowing games by the close scores of
22-21, 21-10, and 21-19 with the
last game going to match point
five times before Goldberg could
claim the title.

a new mark in the fraternity foul-
shooting tournament as they sunk

ter a one-day test, it tackles the
University of Virginia at Char-

On the mound Fisher will start
his 27 year old ace, Cliff Wise.
Wise has looked good in batting
cage drills and appears to have
lost none of the effectiveness that
gave him a 7-0 record last year.

For a batterymate, the Jackson

In the infield Fisher will start

Wikel at first.

Michigan's chances for a suc-

mainly on how well the rest of the
pitching staff shapes up. In Bob
Fancett and Bud Rankin, Fisher
has a couple of promising fresh-
men who have pitched a lot of
American Legion ball but need

Heikkinen and Bob Hick round out

the squad.
Last year Michigan swept
through a 12 game non-confer-
ence schedule unbeaten and went
on to post an 18-2 record for the
season, but the lack of practice
this year makes a repeat perform-
ance a near impossibility.

'THE fame of the Parker "51" has broad
dimensions. Every language, every
continent knows this fine pen. Pride inits
ownership is shared in every walk of life.
Surveys both here and abroad substan-
tiate these facts. American pen dealers, for
example, recently named Parker the most-
wanted pen-rating it ahead of all other
well-known makes combined. (Score: 72.7%
for Parker; 27.3% for all others.)

Its unique point has no moving parts to
clog or fail. It starts promptly. Writes
smoothly and with pressureless touch.
The precision-fit cap slips on-locks
without twisting. Within the tapered shaft,
the 51's filler is safely concealed.
This pen alone is designed for satisfac-
tory use with Parker "51" Ink that dries as
it writes! (It can also use ordinary ink.)
