A LOT of people may be wondering why The Daily, an affirmed
enemy of the tennis tariff, should propose a compromise plan
rather than fight for a complete elimination of all tennis charges.
An explanation is certainly in order. It is a simple one and here
it is. The long talked about athletic building program will take up all
the money the football team has earned and then some.
The Athletic Board instituted the tennis fee as part of its
plan to make othier sports pay for themselves as far as possible, so
that football income can go for the building.
From The Daily's standpoint it is important that the University
finance the building program itself. If a bond issue is necessary to
pay for it, the student body will run into the same sort of ticket dif-
ficulty that perennially hamstrings student football seating.
Michigan plans a huge indoor stadium to accommodate some
20,000. But if the choicest seats in this arena are taken over by bond
holders, what good will it do the students?
]JHAT IS WHY WE accepted Crisler's statement that a fee'for play-
ing tennis is necessary. We did not accept the type of fee that was
levied. It was unfair because it unduly penalized those who are most
enthusiastic about their tennis.
The new tennis fee plan is an improvement. Aside from not tak-
ing into account the fact that this semester is half over, it is not un-
It is now so late in the term that the two buck charge should
have been cut. But the saving for the tennis fanatic is still enough
to make the smester assessment a worthwhile revision.
The violent reaction of the campus to the tennis fee was sur-
prising. But its continuation was even more surprising. The adminis-
tration of this University takes it for granted that most of its old
and all of its new regulations will meet with student gripes, but it
prefers to bide its time and wait for the gripes to die out by themselves.
The revision in the tennis fee plan was no great victory for the
student body, but it did show that a sustained and concentrated bar-
rage of expressed dissatisfaction can produce some consideration for
the best interests of the student.


Track Squad
Gins National
Fame at Penn
Four Firsts Equal
Record Set Long Ago
They're calling Michigan's
track team "mighty" again.
After a famine of almost three
years, cindermen wearing the
Maize and Blue have once again
soared to national prominence
with one of the greatest team per-
formances ever recorded in the
Penn Reays.
The Wolverine's feat of four
firsts and two seconds has only
been duplicated twice in the long
history of the Philadelphia tra'sk
carnival and never surpassed.
NYU, the pre-meet favorites in
fur of the relay events was forced
-o take a back seat to the Wolver-
ines who came home victorious in
both the sprint medley and two
mile relay events diong with the
shot put and pole vaul individul
The Violets prevented the
Wolverines from walking away
with another relay title, how-
ever, when they barely edged
out the Maize and Blue in the
mile grind.
Every one of the Michigan
quartet of Val Johnson, Joe Hay-
den, George Shepherd and Herb
Barten performed brilliantly in
turning in a 3:15.7 clocking, the
best recorded by a Wolverine
squad since 1941 when Bob Ufer,
Ralph Schwartzcop and company
set the Michigan varsity record of
The duel was seemingly decided
on the anchor which matched
Herb Barten against NYU's Reg-
gie Pearman.
The Wolverine captain, who had
run anchor in the two-mile relay
just a half hour previously could
not quite pace the long, smooth
striding Pearman' who was run-
ning fresh.
The New York speedster passed
Barten on the final turn but fin-
ished not more than four feet
ahead. Barten's leg was clocked
in 48.3 seconds.
Although the Wolverine tri-
umph must definitely be attribut-
ed to team performance several
individual efforts stood out as
particularly pleasing.
Herb Barten was at his best
in anchoring three relay teams
and turning in a fine 1:52.4
clocking in the anchor half of
the sprint medley.
There were several "best ever"
performances which include Bob
Thomason's 1:55 flat in the two
mile relay, Justin Williams' 1:58.2
in the same event and Charlie
Fonville's discus heave of 160 feet
2 inches, almost twelve feet bet-
ter than his previous best.
Fonville's 56 foot toss in the shot
contributed a first place for
Michigan along with Ed Ulvestad's
13 foot leap in the pole vault.

After a whole day of spectacu-

g. Michigan's last man that decided
i the winner of the Wolverine-OSU
Lchieve-match at Columbus last Saturday.
nd Blue Michigan was leading OSU by
%2 point with only two more golf-
ers still on the course. Gerry De-
Vries socked his approach onto
the 18th green and it rolled to a
stop about 15 feet from the pin.
He needed the putt to clinch the
victory for the Wolverines.
DeVries stroked the ball and
it rolled in the front door to
give the Wolverines their first
Big Nine victory of the season.
The match was filled with
wonderful golf that gave the 250
spectators plenty of chance to
watch some of the nation's finest
college golfers at their best.

turned into a terrific battle with
Michigan hanging on to a three
point edge when the dinner bell

ST. LOUIS, April 26-(P)--The
St. Louis Browns shaded the De-
troit Tigers 2-1 today behind the
effective pitching of Fred San-
ford. The opener of a three-game
series drew only 1,274 fans.
Making up for an opening day
appearance when he was blasted
out of the box in the second, San-
ford doubled in the sixth inning,
advanced on Bob Dillinger's sin-
gle and then scored the winning
run himself on Chuck Stevens'
Whitey Platt's long double drove
in Dillinger with the Brown's

Bobby Swift came back with a
four-bagger to the left field
bleachers in the next inning to tie
the score.

BOSTON, April 26-(A')--
Eddie Stanky, traded off by the
Brooklyn Dodgers last month,
enjoyed a field day in his first
crack against his old mates to-
day as the Boston Braves shut
out the National League cham-
pions 5-0 to end a four-game
losing streak.
The little second baseman
cracked out a triple, single and
drew a walk in four times at bat.
His walk came in the first inning
as leadoff man and led to Boston's
first run. His triple in the third
led to another run, and his single
in the seventh was followed by
Jim Russell's home run. In the
field, Stanky handled eight
chances cleanly.
