Coaches Satisfied
With Sprig Trips

SoIlf . .
Even though Michigan's Big
Nine Golf Champions were
dumped a couple times on their
tour of the southern circuit,
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer stuck an
optimistic smile through his new-
ly acquired sun tan to express his,
satisfaction on his team's progress
to date.
It was the combination of two,
hot collegiate teams and the long
winter layoff that stopped the
Wolverines in their first two
matches of the 1943 season.
Deacons Too Tough
Playing the Carolina CountryI
Club in competition with Wake
Forest, Michigan ran into some
double trouble in the Deacons'
number one and two men, Buddy
Worsham, brother of former Na-
tional Open Champ. Lew Wor-
sham, and Arnold Palmer. The
pair turned in sub-par scores of
68 and 67 respectively while Wol-
verine Ed Schalon was swinging
over the long course in a meager
72 strokes.

The Wolverine netters made a
good showing in their Southern
trip despite the fact they won
only one of their three matches,
according to coach Bob Dixon.
The tennis team was victorious
when they played Duke last Wed-

as an outstanding player in the
Southern divisions. Despite Pa-

After their first loss the Wol-
verines bounced back with a 7-5
win over Duke University. The
Duke paper reported the score,
however, as a 5-4 win for the Blue
Devils and this was accepted by
the local metropolitan papers.
Dixon corrected this by stating
that the two schools agreed before

And asked we were
the Rooster kept it where?

Michigan wrote a tentative fin-
ish to one of its most successful
swimming seasons, April 1-3 as
they copped second place in the
National AAU Swimming Cham-
pionships at New Haven.
With the Western Confer'ence
and NCAA titles securely under
their belts the Wolverine tank-
men will now take a well-ear'ned
holiday, but a few of them will re-
turn to the Varsity Pool in May!
to begin their conditioning, prep-
aratory to the Olympic Tryouts,
July 9-11 in Deti'oit.
Coach Matt Mann is highly
optimistic about his charges
gainingcOlympic berths and
taking the three big events into
consideration his optimism may
be well founded.
The Olympics have only six,
swimming and one diving event
making up the program and the
distances vary to a certain degree
from the standard races swuml
Three freestyle events, the 100-
meter, 400-meter and 1500-meterl
as well as an 800-meter freestyle'
relay make up the brunt of the
events while the specialists per-
form in the 100-meter backstroke
and 200-meter breaststroke.
In the 100-meter Michigan's
chief aspirant will be Dick Wein-
berg, who took secerd in the Con-



ference and third in the NCAA.
His chief competition for one of
the three berths will come from
Alan Ford, former Yale great and
world's record holder for the 100-
yard sprint.
Wally Ris, triple crown holder
with wins in the 100-yard dis-
tance in the Conference, NCAA
and AAU, is another threat as
are Bob Busbey of Fenn College,
Pete Powlison of Washington
and Ohio State's Ilalo Hirose<...
In theI400-meter freestyle Matt
Mann III and Gus Stager are
Michigan's best, but Bill Smith of
Ohio State, Jimmy McLane of An-
dover Academy, Bill Heusnei' of
Northwestern and Jack Taylor of
Akron, Ohio are all strong con-
tenders for this berth.
The 1500-meter has about the
same list of aspirants with Tay-
lor, Mann and McLane being
rated highest. Foster Norris of
Harvard and Andy Lambert from
Williams are also possibilities.
In the 200-meter breaststroke,
which is equivalent to the 220-
yard event in the AAU, Joe Ver-
deur of LaSalle College ranks
head and choulders above a fine
crop of butterfly experts.
Michigan's Bob Sohl is also
regarded as a sure Olympic pros-
peet with the third position be-
ing hotly contested between
Bill Schmidt of Temple, Keith
Carter of Purdue, and Don De-
Forrst of Pennsylvania.
'In the backstroke Michigan's
Captain Harry Holiday is another
likely prospect with Al Stack andj
