Track Coach May Return; Nine Rained Out


Wolverine Tennis Team
Faces Kalamazoo Today

Stung by two straight losses at
the hands of Michigan State and
Notre Dame, Michigan's netters
'will attempt to get back on the
victory road today when they
meet a red-hot Kalamazoo Col-
lege squad on the Ferry Field
courts at 3:30 p.m.
The Kazoos has taken twelve
matches in a row before they
dropped a 5-4 decision to unbeat-
en Illinois laot week and the Wol-
verines will find the going any-
thing but easy.
Andy Paton will be in the
number one slot as usual for
Michigan but there may be
some changes made in the low-
er rankings.
Captain Bill Mikulich may
move up to the number two posi-

"M' Fourth

Although the basketball season
ended several weeks ago, addi-
tional honors continue to be
heaped upon Michigan's 1947-48
Big Nine cage titlists.
This past week-end Coach Oz-
zie Cowles learned that his boys
"ranked fourth among the nation's
top college teams, according to
the final Converse-Dunkel ratings
recently released.
"The news came as a complete
surprise to me," said Cowles, who
piloted a Dartmouth quintet to
the No. 2 ranking a few years
Kentucky, St. Louis and Holy
Cross finished 1-2-3, respectively,
among the nation's top ten college
teams, the Converse-Dunkel rat-
ings disclosed. This system is de-
signed to present a factual, un-
biased picture of the relative
strength of teams as revealed by a
special scoring correlation method.
Following fourth-place Michi-
gan in the select ten were these
schools; Western Kentucky, North
Carolina State, C.C.N.Y., Illinois,
De Paul, and Baylor.
The Wolverines were feted in
Detroit Monday at a special ban-
quet sponsored by several ardent

tion with Fred Otto dropping back
to third and Bob Mackay will
probably continue to hold down
the number six spot that he took
over against Notre Dame.
Facing Paton in the number
one position for Kalamazoo will
be Jack Sunderland while Art
Leighton son of the famous
tennis coach will hold down the
second spot and Nick Beresky
will be at No. 3 for the Kazoos.
Jack Hersh will continue at
No. 4 for Michigan against Vic
Braden, Gordie Naugle who has
taken over Dick Lincoln's No. 5
position will be up against Kala-
mazoo's Mary Martin and Mackay
will face Ax Jemal.
Doubles play will see Paton
and Mikulich teaming up for
the Wolverines against Leigh-
ton and Beresky at No. 1, Hersh
and Otto facing Sunderland
and Martin while Lincoln and
Naugle pair up against Kala-
mazoo's Braden and Bob Stowe.
It was in winning two out of
three doubles matches that Illi -
nois .was able to squeeze out
Kalamazoo team. It was the third
year in succession that the Ka-
zoos had fallen to the Illini by
a 5-4 score.
The Turks defeated the Arabs,
4-1, in an International Center
soccer game Sunday, May 2. Both
teams were previously undefeated,
and the winner stands a good
chance of annexing the Interna-
tional Students Association soccer
The game started slowly and
neither team was able to score for
the first 40 minutes. Then Soli
Bencuya and Rasin Tek tallied
for the Turks to give them a 2-0
lead at the half.
The second half was played in a
continuous rainstorm, Besin Tan
and Nick Kamaryotis scored two
more for the Turks and the Arabs'
flashy outside left wing, Tashak,
scored his team's only goal.
On May 8 the Indians will play
the Latin Americans in a game
beginning at 1:15 p.m. On May 9
the Chinese will meet the Arabs
at 1:15 p.m. and the Turks will
face the Indians at 3:15 p.m.'
