teams which will represent Michi-
gan in this week's Conference meets.

Rated one of the teams to beat
in the forthcoming Western Con-1
ference meet at Evanston, Ill.,
Thursday, Michigan's tennis squad
concludes its final drills today be-
fore entraining for the champion-
ships tomorrow.
They are rated high, along with
Northwestern and Illinois, the de-

fending champions. Right now, the
Illini are dubbed slight favorites to
cop their second successive net ti-
tle, but according to Coach Bob
Dixon, "Michigan has a very good
chance to win, with quite a bit de-
pending on the luck of the draw."
The Wolverines wound up a.
1 successful regular season, sport-
ing a 10 victory and three loss
record, against Ohio State last
Saturday, defeating them 8-1.
During the year, Michigan took
decisions from Purdue, Western
Michigan, Chicago, Wayne, Detroit
and two each from Kalamazoo

Twilight Game Ends
Non-Conference Play1

* * *

Michigan winds up its non-con-
ference athletic affairs for the
current sports year this afternoon
when they travel cross state to
seek revenge for an earlier 2-1
defeat at the hands of Robin Rob-
erts and the Spartan nine from
MSC in a twilight game.
Coach John Kobs will send Rob-
erts to the mound again with
hopes of an encore performance
in mind, while Ray Fisher has
indicated he'll use about three
pitchers in three-inning stints.
Bud Rankin, Dick Schmidtke and
Ed Heikkinen are the most likely
choices, with an outside possibil-
ity that Fisher may use Art Dole
Egain in a tune-up for the com-
ng weekend series with Ohio
3tate.
If so, Dole will be working with
a two-day rest, having turned in
a brilliant chore Saturday when
he ran his string of scoreless in-
nings to 33 and then went on to
past a 7-2 win over Northwestern.
Paced by its keystone combina-
tion of Marty Hansen and Frank
Barbarito, the Spartans have run
up a season record of 14 wins in
twenty starts. Michigan's record
stands at 17-9.
The Wolverines will be out to
fatten up their batting averages
which took a nose dive over the
weekend. Limited to 15 hits by
Wildcat pitching, the Maize and
Blue now hold the unwelcome
honor of being the worst hitting
team in the Big Nine with a .188
average in conference play.
Michigan State College radio
station WKAR will broadcast
Tuesday's twilight baseball
game between Michigan and
Michigan State, beginning at
5:55 p.m. (EST).

College and Michigan State. They
dropped decisions to Notre Dame,
Illinois and Northwestern. These
last two matches were very close,
both of them 5-4 affairs.
Andy Paton will be in his usual
number one spot. He boasts a 9-3
record, with wins over Northwest-
ern, Illinois and Purdue in the
Conference field. He has a power-
ful service and is very good on the
short volley, having uncanny con-
trol over his shots.
Fred Otto, Michigan's second
man, showed some of his best
form against Ohio State when
he whipped defending Confer-
ence champ Tom Mitchell in
straight sets, He has a, strong
forehand, a steady backhand,
and plays well along the base-
line.
In the number three slot will be
Fred Ziemann, occupying the spot
Lloyd House
Cops Softball
Championship
Lloyd House won the I-M res-
idence halls softball title yester-
day, blanking Winchell, 3-0, be-
hind the five-hit performance of
Bill McAdams.
Lloyd broke into the scoring
column in the fourth inning when
George Peugeot walked and Bud
Weber was safe as his grounder
trickled through shortstop. Hal
Oleaszewski hit a clutch single to
center scoring both runners. Tal-
lying Lloyd's last run, Ray Lan-
tos walked, advanced on two outs
and came home on Al Pappas'
safety.
Activity in the independent
division centered on the champ-
ionship game for League I as
the Dodgers cracked out fifteen
hits to defeat Newman Club,
8-5. They meet the Goosers of
league II tomorrow for the final
title.'
The od gers sewed up the vic-
tory in he fifth, scoring five runs
on seven hits with Stan Wolfson's
double that scored John Ayotte
and Herb Spencer.
In the fraternity circuit the
Phi Delta Theta nine edged Phi
Sigma, Delta, 3-1, in the semi-
final round, as Ed Bahlow
smashed a homerun with none
aboard and scored another run
personally to lead the Phi Delts.
Although pitcher Paul Atkins
allowed only four hits, he got into
trouble once or twice by issuing
passes. In the last inning he
walked three straight Phi Sig bat-
ters, but calmed down and got the
next trio without letting anyone
score.

he has held all season. He has a
7-4 season record with Big Nine
wins over Purdue and Ohio State.
A flat service is the feature of his
game, along with a fine forehand.
Filling the fourth post will be
Captain Bill Mikulich, who has
had a successful 8-3 season, with-
out a defeat in Conference play.
Mikulich has the best backhand
on the squad and has the ability to
reach those high ones that are us-
ually so much trouble.
Gordie Naugle, who was side-
lined during part of the season

with r injuired foot is Coacwh
Dixon's chice for the filth po-
sition. IIe is a cagy player, witli
not too iuch power, relying on
his ability to place his shots.
Hal Cook will round out the
Michigan team in his usual num-
ber six spot. He has had an ex-
tremely good year, with 10 wins
against a single loss, that to
Northwestern. He is a very
steady, all-around player, and
since last year, has developed his
net game, which was his greatest1
weakness.I

ie igra 's chances in the Big
Nine track meet this weekend suf-
fered a set-back when it was an-
nounced that the Wolverines'
number one quarter-miler, Dick
Forrestel, will be unable to make
the trip to Evanston because of
f ., exams in the law school.
It is still doubtful whether Cap-
' tain Charlie Birdsall will be able
to compete in the two-day cham-
pionships because of an injured
foot which has sidelined him for
two weeks. Due to the conflict
with final exams, Coach Ken D9-
herty will only take a small squad
to the 47th annual Conference
meet.
