Toward Defeat as 'M' Settles Issue in First

Michigan's varsity golfers will
tangle with a team of ex-M golf-
ers Sunday in their second annual
battle for the Lynn Reiss Me-
morial Trophy.
The former M-stars claim that
they are ready to avenge last
year's 26-22 trouncing and to cap-
ture the trophy donated by Ray
Courtright in memory of M-golf-
ers killed in World War IL
In addition to the team
trophy, prizes donated by De-
troit merchants will be awarded
the individual winners.
Not giving a single stroke to the
junior set, Jack Vezina and his
collection of comparative ancients
figure they're a cinch to win just
about everything that can be won
next Sunday.
Their line-up is loaded down
with champs and ex-champs
plucked from the Ann Arbor area
to bring home the cup.
Ben Smith leads the oldsters'
stellar list. Runner up in the
State Amateur Tournament last
year, Ben is back to prove that
the 3-0 white wash job he gave
Ed Schalon last year was no
fluke.
Four members bf last year's
team that captured the Big Nine
Crown will be out swinging for
the alumni come Sunday.
Jack Vezina, Ann Arbor City
and Barton Hillls Champ, Bill Lu-
dolph, Michigan's Jayvee coach,
Bill Courtright, and John Jens-
wold form the formidable quartet.
And if that isn't enough to
make it a rough afternoon for
the Wolverines, there will be a
few more Oldsters present that
will still swat a mean golf ball.
Jack Emery, a refugee from the
class of '40, and medal honor

winner last year with a 75, 'will
be there to do his stuff.
Chuck Kocsis, former State $'
Amateur, Big Ten, and NCAA "
Champ, will be wielding an exper-
ienced stick against the compar-
atively green Wolverines.
Then, to make it necessary
for Varsity Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer to dip into the Jayvee
barrel, the Elders will fill out
their 15 man aggregation with
nine more ex-Michigan golfers
that can cause plenty of trouble.
Woody Malloy and Chuck Men-
efee, former Ann Arbor City
champs, Bob Fife, John Barr,
Dave Osler, Phil Marcellus, How-
ard Brewer, Cal Markham, and
John Leidy are all loosened up and
ready to go after the lovely
trophy.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer thinks
that he has the depth in reserves
to match the best Vezina can
offer. Both the varsity and jay- ,
vees have been shooting fine golf t
lately, the first string boasting
a string of nine victories and the
B squad riding the crest of a trio
of wins.

BILL CONNOLLY
Coach Don Canham didn't have
to look too far to find two men on
this year's Freshman track team
who are certain to give a big
boost to next year's varsity.
Both Eric Koutonen and Art
Henrie have turned in remarkable
times and distances in an amaz-
ing number of events. They have
been running tone two in the
broad-jump and high-jump, and
while Art concentrates his efforts
on the dashes, Eck sharpens up
his form in the running hop, step,
and jump.
Versatility Pays Off
Versatility -has been the key to
the success of both of these men.
For Koutonen, it payed off as he
took a second in the Michigan
AAU Septathelon last winter,!
running as an independent candi-
date. Henrie is credited with the
fastest 100, 220 and 440 yard
dashes of the freshmen and has
the best record in the broad-jump.
A list of their accomplishments
makes them sound like a two-man
track team. Henrie has cleared
the high-jump bar at six feet two
inches and broad jumped 22 feet
10 inches, while Koutonen has
high-jumped six feet 212 inches
and broad-jumped 22 feet.
In setting the plce for the
Frosh sprinters, Art has run the
100 yard dash in 10 flat, the 220

in 22.4 seconds and the quarter
mile in 51.6 seconds.
lenrie Cuts Times
These times all showed mark-
ed improvements over Henrie's
high school record, and, if he con-
tinues at his present rate, he is
sure Varsity material.
Koutonen's second in the Sep-
tathelon included first places in
the high-jump, the 880 meter run
and the running hop, step, and
jump.
Other events in which Eck
competed in the AAU meet are
the broad-jump, pole-vault, shot
put, and the 65 yard low hurdles.
It is interesting. to note that he
was second only to LLoyd Duff,
of Ohio State, who scored 14
points in Saturday's Varsity meet
between Michigan and OSU.
Koutonen Starts Career Late
Both Eric and Art have a long
way to go as trackmen. Koutonen,
who has lived in Fithchburg,
Mass. since coming to the U.S.
when he was 12, is now 22 years
old.
He began his track career last
summer. Throughout high school
and his service in the Marines, his
major sport interest was basket-
ball, Then last summer, after be-
ing discharged from the Marine
Corps, Eck was persuaded by a
group of neighborhood friends to
try track.
That was just about 10 short
months ago, and already he has
shown indications of a great fu-
ture. His speciality is the hop,
step and jump, which he won in
the AAU meet with a distance of
46 feet 2 inches. Track fans at
Michigan will see a lot of Eric
Koutonenr who is ia, first, semester
freshman, maa.joriug in mecharn-
cal engineering.
Ilenrie Former 1"rep Stari
Henrie, who is approaching his
19th birthday, hails from Mill-
ville, Penn. He competed for three
years as a member of the George
School track team. in Bucks Co.,
Penn. and is already a veteran of
big track meets, having run with
his prepschool team in three
Penn. Relays.
Art started his ira ek car er al-
most four years ago when George
School's track coach told him he
looked like a sprinter--and he's
been sprinting ever since. With
three years of Collegiate competi-
tion ahead of him, Henrie will un-
doubtedly become familiar to
Wolverine track fans.

By L. E. NELSON
Art Dole and Bud Rankin com-
bined talents on the mound to
shutout the Notre Dame baseball
team 3-0 at Ferry Field yesterday
in a non-Conference game.
Dole went the first seven
frames, giving up but five hits and
walking two. Rankin hurled the
last two innings and was nicked
for one single. Southpaw Jack
Campbell went the route for the
Irish and except for a rough open-
ing inning might have given
Coach Fisher's nine a tight after-
noon.
The story of the game was
the story of Michigan's first
time at bat. Everything hap-
pened to Campbell after Bump
Elliott and Vic Fryling had
grounded out. Kobrin started
things off with a single to right
and moved to second when
Weisenburger walked. Howard
Wikel shot a ground ball to
deep short and beat Koblosh's
throw to load the bases.
With Dom Tomasi at the plate,
Kobrin faked a dash for homej
from third. It was the turning I
point of the ball game. Pitcher
Campbell was in motion at the
time of Ted's bluffed steal and
Jack's delivery got past catcher
Hiller for a wild pitch allowing
Kobrin to score and the other
runners to move up.
Tomasi then walked to reload
the sacks. Willard Baker, playing
for the injured Chappuis, then
swept one of the Notre Dame left-
handers' inside offerings past
third base for a single scoring
Weisenburger and Wikel.
Baker took second on the
throw into third attempting to
cut down Tomasi. Hal Raymond
worked Campbell for another
pass and again the bases were
packed. Art Dole struck out to
retire the side. Campbell had
thrown 45 pitches in the fracas.
Except for a base running lapse
in the second inning Michigan
might have added to their three
run lead. With one away, Fryling
beat out an infield bounder to
the shortstop.
Ted Kobrin then drove a sharp
single to left for his second hit
of the day and proceeded on into
second base only to find that Vic
Fryling hadn't tried for third on
the hit fielded near the left field
foul line.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

It lacked one man of being
Babe Herman's Brooklyn stunt
of three on third, but nonethe-
less the Wolverines had two on
second.
In the ensuing confusion, Ko-
brin started back to first, Fryling
was pocketed on the base line
near second and run down while.
Kobrin returned safely to second.
Jack Weisenburger grounded out
to end the frame.
Art Dole only needed Comp-
bell's shaky start to contribute
to a well pitched whitewash vic-
tory. Dole never was in serious
trouble. Notre Dame had two
consecutive hits in the sixth but
when one runner failed to touch
second, and was called out, the
rally died.
Bud Rankin never looked better
in safeguarding the game for
Dole. Michigan's southpaw whiffed
two pinch hitters in the ninth to
end the contest.

JV Golfers
Beat Grand
Rapids 14-4
(Special to The Dally)
GRAND RAPIDS, May 18-
Michigan's junior varsity golfers
discovered the key to success on
the road this afternoon as they
found the Grand Rapids Junior
College course friendly enough to
enable them to bring home a 14-
4 victory.
In gaining their third straight
match, the Wolverines finally con-
quered the jinx that had prevent-
ed them from winning on foreign
soil all season long. It was the
fifth straight triumph of the year
for Michigan, as against three
losses.
M' Wins Three Singles
Coach Bill Ludolph's charges
walked off with three out of the
four singles matches and one of
the pair of best ball contests. The
remaining two tilts ended in ties.
Once again it was Jerry Weiler,
the Wolverine's number one man,
who copped medalist honors-this
time with a brilliant 74. His op-
ponent, Roger Wall, who finished
the 18 holes in 80 strokes, was
also the victim of the only shut-
out of the individual matches.
In the number three singles
match, John McCloy recorded a
79, but to no avail, as he was
able only to finish in a dead heat
with Grand Rapids' Dick Fletch-
er. In the last individual fray, Bill
Telfer fired a 78 to defeat Ray
Miller's 80 by a scant two strokes.
Weiler, LeClaire Triumph
The only other whitewashing of
the day came in the first best
ball foursome. Weiler and Le-
Claire teamed up to blank Wall
and Cole, 3-0. The last doubles
affair between the McCloy-Telfer
and Fletcher-Miller duos ended
in a draw with each team adding
1/2 points to its total.

Fresh from two satisfying week-
end victories at Northwestern and
Purdue, Michigan's net squad
journies two Kalamazoo College
today for a return match with a
strong Hornet team.
It was just two weeks ago that
the Wolverines, struggling to keep
above the .500 mark, snapped a
two game losing skein by trounc-
ing the Kazoos 6-3.
This win seemed to be Just
what the doctor ordered, for
the Maize and Blue racquet-
wielders have gone on to stretch
their streak to four in a row
with Friday's 5-4 upset of
mighty Northwestern's Con-
ference champs coming as
their top effort.
It was at Northwestern, too,
that Andy Paton established him-
self as the probable favorite for
Big Nine singles honors by de-
feating defending champion Ted
Paterson and Bill Mikulich had a
surprisingly easy time subduing
Ted Hainline in the second singles
match for his fourth win with-
out a setback since moving up to
the second singles position.
Gordie Naugle and Don Mac-
Kay teamed up in the third sin-
gles at Northwestern to down
Peterson and Hainline and that
brought the widest smile of the
year to Coach Bob Dixon's face.
That was the set that meant
the match and it was won from
the Wildcat's first and second
seeded men. Naugle and Mac-
Kay are undefeated in Big Nine
play and could be key men in
Michigan's drive for another
Big Nine championship.
