Top Notre Dame; Nine Plays MSC oda

By JACK MARTIN, Daily Sports Editor
YESTERDAY afternoor the College of Engineering scuttled a pro-
gram that has taken three years to create and develop. We refer
to the veto it applied to the Athletic Department's proposals for an
expanded, more efficient physical education organization.
Many will hail them in this action. But those who can think
beyond tomorrow and beyond the confines of their own interests
will be not a little disappointed.
Thinking of man's life in most general terms, one can see three
main aspects, or elements, which combine to make it complete. There
is first his work; there is second his general cultural and intellectual
existence; and there is third his physical existence.
All three are absolutely essential if a man's life is to be full
and satisfying - one is not enough, two are not enough. The first
is necessary because a man must work to find sustenance; the
second is necessary because a man is not mentally healthy if he
feels intellectually inferior; the third is necessary if a man is to
be able to accomplish the first and en.joy the second.
Since school is the main institution designated by our society to
train persons for life, it logically must provide sufficient training in
all three fields.
The University of Michigan is meeting the first two obli-
gations in very good fashion. It is sadly negligent in its third
duty. The proposed physical education program is a start toward
filling this gap. But already, it is being killed in its crib.
1OWEVER, all the criticism should not be levelled at the academic
quarter of the University. The Athletic Administration which
initiated the program and developed it has, itself, been lax. Never at
any time has any responsible athletic official really pushed the pro-
posals. The plan has been explained to the faculties, but beyond that,
it has never been supported with the vigor it deserves.
In the proposals, themselves, there are two great deficiencies.
No mention was made of the precise financial foundation which
the program would need, or the sources of the finances when
the need was determined. And no mention was made of definite
'roposals for securing an adequate staff, both in numbers and
efficiency. The-report states that such a staff is needed, but does
not go beyond that. The faculties must know these things.
There is no reason why a more or less definite financial basis
for the program could not have been mentioned. More money rolled
into the athletic coffers during last football season than ever before,
and the prospects next year are just as good. An ethical question is
thereby raised. Should the money be spent for a physical education
program benefiting all persons, or for the expansion of seating ca-
pacities to make more money to build bigger seating capacities?
In the answer to that question, which only the athletic ad-
ministration can provide, lies part of the fate of their own program.

Barclay carded a 37-38-75,

The Wolverine captain made

already canned his tee shot

the 18th hole and sank the shot
for an eagle 3 and two points for
the Wolverines. This shot in-

also gave Michigan a split on the

Coach Katzenmeyer, "consider-

for a back nine card of 37, one
over par.
Today the Wolverine jayvees

entertain the Michigan Normal
links squad on the University
course. Coach Katzenmeyer's jay-
vees took a 16-11 decision over
the Ypsi crew a few weeks ago at
Washtenaw country club and will
be favored to repeat.
The varsity will again swing in-
to action tomorrow when they
play host to the University of De-
troit Titans. Coach Katzenmeyer
announced the final varsity squad
yesterday after theuNotre Dame
match. They include Barclay,
Schalon, Jenswold, Courtright,
Kessler, Pete Elliott, Bill Ludolph,
Paul O'Hara, Garry DeVries, Jack
Vezina and Tom Messinger.
Thirty-six men are now cngaged
in a second elimination tourna-
ment that will pare the squad
down to 31. In addition to the
11-man varsity, Katzenmeyer will
name a ten-man jayvee squad and
a ten-man freshman crew to
round out the full team.

Tennis Team
Faces Wayne
Michigan's tennis team will
wind up its four-match home,
stand against Wayne University
at 2 p.m. today, before leaving for
a tough weekend double header
with Kalamazoo College and Chi-
this afternoon's opposition,
Coach Bob Dixon has decided
to bench Fred Otto and Bill Mi-
kulich, so that he may take a
look at some of his other men
in actual competition.
Andy Paton will be at his ac-
customed number one slot, with
Fred Ziemann at two, and Hal
Cook moving up to number three.
The rest of the singles lineup will
see Dick Lincoln at four, Gordon
Naugle, five, and Mickey Dayton,
at six.
If the Tartars make a strong
showing in the singles, Dixon will
use M1Vikulich and Ziemann in the
number two doubles. Otherwise
Cook and Naugle will move up be-
hind Paton and Otto in the dou-
bles lineup, with Lincoln and
Dayton at the anchor post.
Wayne sprung an unexpected
5-4 upset against the Wolver-
ines and hopes to repeat. The
Tartars boast an impressive 8-1
victory over the University of
Detroit. Del Russell will prob-
ably be at number one for Wayne
and he turned in a straight set
win over Bill Mikulich at num-
ber two last year.
Michigan's next home match
will be against Detroit, next Tues-

Riding the crest of a four-game
win streak, Michigan renews a
long standing baseball fued today
when it plays host to a powerful
Michigan State nine at 3:30.
Winner of 11 of their 13 games
this season, the Spartans bring
to town an outfit recognized as
one of the better ones in this part
of the country. Seven of their
starting lineup are currently hit-
ting over the .330 mark and the
club as a whole is pounding the
horsehide at an amazing .315 clip.
The infield alone boasts three .400
hitters in Marty Hansen, Ed Bar-
barito and Frank Bagdon.
Coach John Kobs has nomi-
nated his ace righthander, Robin
Roberts (4-0), to start against
Wolverine Cliff Wise (4-2). Wise,
working with only two days' rest,
will probably work only a part
of the game and retire to rest
his arm for his Big Nine assign-
ment against Purdue Friday.
Behind him, Wise will have a
team that finally "arrived" last
week. The Wolverine batting at-
tack-which had b e en almost
non-existent--f i n a 11 y snapped
out of a season-long slump to
pound out 41 hits in four games

and push across an average of'
ten runs per game.
"Slugger of the week" honors
went to Big Bob Wiese. Moved
up to the clean-up slot for the
last three games, the man from

Ex-GI John Jenswold Shoots
For Individul Golf Laurels



1 1

Back in style on the Wolverine
links after serving abroad last
year in Uncle Sam's Navy, ex-
GI John Jenswold hopes to pick
up individual laurels in Big Nine
and National Collegiate competi-
tion this year "provided I'm as
lucky as I was in 1944 and '45."
But right now Jenswold, a
stocky, 24-year-old golfer from
Duluth, Minn., is more concerned
with Michigan's. chances of cop-
ping the 1947 Conference title-
and he's doing his share terror-
izing the opposition with some
nifty scores.
1944 Individual Champ
Three years ago when he was
a V-12 student at Michigan, Jens-
wold, the number five throughout
the season, surprised everybody-
"including myself"- as he cap-
tured the Western Conference in-
dividual crown. He fired an op-
ening round of 72 - one of the
best scores in a Conference meet
-but sagged to an 81 in the final
18 for a 153. The early lead paid
off, though.
Not content with this honor,
Jenswold went on to garner the
runner-up spot in the 1944 NCAA
golf tourney. He duplicated his
NCAA performance the following
year, but finished third in the
Big Ten race.

;__ A long-ball hitter who's recog-
nized as a tough competitor,
Jenswold will have the advantage
of playing on a home course this
year when the NCAA golf meet
is reeled off at the Michigan fair-
ways June 23-29. The Big Nine-
championship isscheduled at Pur-
due May 30.
Perhaps his most rabid rooters
will be his parents and three sis-
ters - golfers all.
"Mom still plays a pretty good
game of golf," says John, who
started swinging clubs at the age
of five, under the tutelage of Joe
and Sammy Belfore.
Also Plays Hockey
Little wonder golf became Jens-
wold's favorite sport, but travel -
ing around the skating rink has
also kept him in the sport spot-
light. He won varsity letters on
Michigan's 1943 and '44 hockey
teams. In 1943, however, he played
for Michigan Tech's pucksters.
After two years in the V-12 pro-
gram at Michigan, Jenswold left
Ann Arbor in June '45 to receive
his ensign's commission in New
York. A tour of duty in the Far
East followed. He returned to the
Wolverine campus -- in civics -
last fall.
A senior in mechanical engi-
neering, Jenswold will receive his
third Michigan golf letter this
year from his third Wolverine
