Opening Western Conference
competition for the 1947 season,
Michigan's baseball team will
meet a highly-touted Illinois nine
this afternoon at 3:30 p.m. at
Ferry Field.
This is the first of a two-game
weekend series which will largely'
determine the Wolverines' fate in
the W e s t e r n Conference this
spring.
Illinois looms as one of the big
powers in the Conference, with a
3-1 record, and presents a big
hurdle for the Maize and Blue to
overcome in its quest for its, 17th
championship. Only Illinois ranks
higher than the Wolverines with
19 crowns.
On the eve of the Illini series
the Wolverines have possibly
lost the services of Paul White,
hard hitting outfielder. During
batting practice yesterday he
was hit on the temple by a
pitched ball. He probably willi
not see much action this week-
end and will definitely not face
any left-handed pitching ac-
cording to Coach Ray Fisher.
The spotlight of the game will

be focused on two of the Big
Nine's foremost hurlers, Cliff Wise
and Mary Roblatt. Wise has lost
only one game in two seasons,
while Roblatt's only loss over that
stretch was to Michigan last sea-
son, 8-7.
Roblatt, a curve , ball artist,
leads Big Nine flingers with two
wins and no losses. He has struck
out 23 men and walked but three
in 18 innings of Conference com-
petition.
The Illini also brings several
athletes of other sports with
their baseball squad. Basketball
all-American Andy Phillip will
start at first base, while grid-
ders Julie Rykovich and Russ
Steger, who starred in the Rose
Bowl champions' backfield, will
patrol right and left fields, re-
spectively.
Bob Wakefield, who leads the
regulars in hitting with a .333 av-
erage in Conference play, will
guard the hit corner. He is the
brother of Dick Wakefield, who
starred under Coach Fisher at
Michigan and now plays left field
for the Detroit Tigers.
If Roblatt starts, Fisher will
move Howard Wikel from his reg-
ular first base position to the out-
field and put Don Boor at the
initial sack to add right handed
hitting strength to his lineup.
Bump Elliott and Paul Vieth, who
has been hitting the ball well of
late, will be the rest of the outer
garden trio.
If Coach Roettger counters
with a right handed flinger, then
southpaw swingers Ralph Mor-
rison and Bob Wiese will prob-
ably see much action.
The rest of the infield will still

Michigan's tennis team will o
through its final practice session
before the season's home opener
tomorrow, with one eye on the
developments at East Lansing this
afternoon,. where Purdue's un-
known net squad makes a cam-
paign debut against Michiganj
State before moving into Ann
Arbor.
The Boilermakers are an un-
known quantity and the outcomel
of their match with the Spartans
this afternoon may help Coach
Bob Dixon to decide on his own
starting lineup.
Two Spots Open
Andy Paton, Fred Otto, Captain
Bill Mikulich, and Fred Zieman
are tentatively scheduled to hold
down the first four singles posi-
tions in that order, but the num-
ber five and six spots are still up
for grabs.
Dean McClusky, who has been
playing at number five, dropped!
a practice match to Dick Lincoln
yesterday, and may start at num-I
ber six against the Riveters.
But Hal Cook gets a chance to
even up his series with Lincoln
this afternoon, and a win would
give him the call over the fresh-
man southpaw.
Naugle Injured
Gordon Naugle had a gooL
chance to break into the starting
lineup, but he suffered an ankle
injury yesterday, which, though
not serious, will keep him from
strenuous work for the next few
days.
Paton and Otto are still the
number one doubles unit, with
Mikulich and Zieman, number
two.

By IRWIN ZUCKER
Despite a soggy, wind-swept
course, Michigan's first junior var-
sity golf squad in Wolverine his-
tory scored an impressive 16-11
victory yesterday in their debut
against the Michigan State Nor-
mal linksters at the Washtenaw
Country Club.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer, Wol-
verine linkmaster who selected
his six-man jayvee lineup "prac-
tically out of a hat," expressed
complete satisfaction after yes-
terday's victorious match.
The Wolverine mentor ap-
plauded the efforts of Michigan's
Garry De Vries who paced all
competitors with a 77, Jack Vez-
ina who followed closely with a
78, and Wes Carlson, a long-ball
hitter who carded a 79.
"Keep your eye on this Carlson
youngster," advised Katzenmeyer.
~He's only an upper freshman,
the type of ballplayer we like to
count on for future varsity ma-
terial. Wes competed in the
Hearst Invitational in Detroit last
year, and made a fine showing."
Katzenmeyer was also pleased
with the performances of the
three other Wolverine golfers-
Doug Beath, Mort Cohn, and
Ken Burke-but he emphasized
once again that "these boys can
not be considered regular jay-
vee material for more than a
score of other aspirants are eli-
gible to compete in the 36-hole
medal event - the real basis
for jayvee status."
The oft-postponed 36-hole tour-
ney, which will also determine the

remaining varsity and freshman

off today at the University Golf
Course under the direction of
Harry Kaseberg, golf assistant.
Coach Katzenmeyer will leave
Ann Arbor today with his six
leading varsity candidates to com-
pete against Ohio State tomorrow
in their first Big Nine match. The
dangerous Buckeyes, who captured
the Conference championship in
1945, are anxious to dethrone
Michigan's Wolverines, defending
titlists.

According to reliable sources,
boxing is the only sport that will
merit serious consideration at this
time as the boxing enthusiasts are
the only ones that have submitted
petitions asking for the formation
of a squad for the coming season.
Fans Voice Support
Although there are no petitions
for fencing and gymnastics, those
two sports will come under serious
discussion at this meeting also.
There never has been a box-
ing team at the University, but
the tremendous spectator response
to the recent fights has given defi-
nite impetus to the sport. This
fact, coupled with the good fight-
ing material on the campus, pre-
sents an excellent case for the
team.
Battle for Recognition
Fencing and gymnastics have
in the past been recognized sports
at the University, but with the
coming of the depression, they
were curtailed for economic rea-
sons.
Now that the school's financial
position is sound, there seems to
be no adequate reason why Mich-
igan shouldn't be represented in
these two fields.
