Four Singles Victories
Nip SpartanSquad, 5-1
MacKay, Naugle Notch Double Triumphs
As Paton, Mikulich Also Capture Matches
<.______ _________ ___

Detroiters Gain Revenge
For Earlier Loss, 14-2
Wolverines Drop Sixth Game of Season;
Three 'M' Pitchers Pounded for 16 Hits

Wolverine netmen took their
revenge on the Spartans yester-
day but it was only after a long
and hard-fought match on wind-
swept Varsity courts that they
came out ahead, 5-4.
Coming back after being de-
feated earlier by Michigan State
the 'M' tennis squad topped the
Spartans in four of the six singles
matches, but had to fight tooth
and nail for a win in the doubles
matches to rack up their remain-
ing point.
Paton Takes Eighth
Annexing his eighth win of the
season, number one Wolverine
Andy Paton forced Al Reynolds
to a speedy 6-4, 6-2 defeat. Al-
though Paton was slow in setting
his pace, mainly because of the
strong wind sweeping the courts,
he finally hit his stride after
dropping his first three games
and came back to take the match.
Playing an outstanding game
for the Maize and Blue, net cap-
tain Bill Mikulich quickly sub-
dued Spartan number two man
Jack Shingleton, 6-3, 6-3. Then
'Mik' and Paton teamed up to op-
pose Reynolds and Shingleton in
the number one doubles but were
forced to bow after winning the
first set 6-4. The Spartan duo
Allred Accepts
Teaching Post
At Arizona 'U'
Johnny Allred, who has won
varsity letters in gymnastics,
wrestling, and 150 pound football,
has accepted a position at the
' University of Arizona. '
According to a letter from the
Arizona officials, he will in-
struct wrestling, gymnastics,
and a course similar to the tests
' and measurements class for the
Michigan physical education
Although gymnastics is consid-
ered a minor sport at the western
school, Allred has hopes of creat-
ing as much interest in it there
as Coach Newt Loken has stirred
up here at Michigan. If no tram-
polines are available, he plans to
have them added to the depart-
ment equipment.
A 24-year-old senior from
Melvindale, Michigan, Allred
originally intended to become a
basketball coach. But since
working with Loken, he has
changed his mind.
In addition, he wrestled for
Coach Cliff Keen at 126 pounds
for two years and then started at
back for the 150 pound gridders
under Keen.

came back to win the second set
6-3 and then, in the third, over-
whelmed the Wolverine pair with
a love set.
Spartans Cop Number Three
The Spartans, although two
down came back in the third sin-
gles when Bob Malaga eliminated
Michigan's Fred Otto in two 6-1
sets. Also Bob Chuck, number four
for the Lansing aggregation
topped Jack Hersh in three tough
sets, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.
Otto and Hersh paired up to
meet Chuck and Malaga and
fought them in the longest match
of the meet. The Spartans finally
came out ahead 6-8, 8-6, 8-6.
However, Gordie Naugle and
Don MacKay brought the biggest
smiles to Coach Bob Dixon's face
when they easily subdued their
Spartan opponents, each winning
two sets 6-4, 6-4.
Naugle shaded Bob Fleishmann,
Spartan number five ace, and
MacKay eliminated Don Waldron
who occupied the sixth Spartan
berth. Particularly pleasing to
.Dixon was the fact that the five
and six singles were the matches
that the Maize and Blue netters
dropped in their last meeting with
Doubles Decide Match
Naugle and MacKay came back
in the doubles to contribute their
third point to the Wolverine
cause. Playing beautiful tennis
they defeated Waldron and
Fleishmann in three sets, 6-2, 4-6,
6-2, to cinch the Wolverine win.
Sporting their seventh win of
the season with only two losses
the Wolverine netters move to
Ohio State where they clash with
the Buckeyes tomorrow. Although
the Wolverines will be favored
Gordon Conklin and Arnie Levin-
stein, occupying the two top
berths for OSU will be on deck
to battle them.

(Special to The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 21 -
With little Mary Rotblatt notch-
ing his fifth straight Western Con-
ference victory of the season, the
University of Illinois baseball team
strengthened its hold on first place
today, downing Indiana, 10-4.
It was the eighth triumph for
the Illini against only one defeat
in Big Nine play. The two teams
will hook up again tomorrow in
the last of a two game series.
In previous games, the Illinois
nine had beaten Purdue, North-
western, and Minnesota twice each
and split a two game series with
Michigan last weekend.

Tackle Cornell
In Meet Today
Wolverines Give Up
Points in Tw ovents
Michigan's track team will face
Cornell this afternoon at Ithica in
their final dual meet of the season
but although the team is not yet in
New York the Wolverines are at
present 18 points behind.
The reason for this is that
Michigan is not entering anyone
in either the javelin or hammer
throw and Cornell will automati-
cally pick up all three places in
each event.
Nevertheless Ken Doherty's
squad does not figure to have
much trouble downing the Big
Red. Other than the two events
mentioned the high hurdles,
dashes and broad jump are the
only events in which Michigan
can expect to have trouble.
In the field events Charlie Fon-
ville and Pete Dendrinos will be
entered in the shot put and discus,
Ed Ulvestad and Gene Moody are
expected to win the pole vault, and
Tom Dolan should take first place
in the high jump..
Fonville will again be trying to
better his'outdoor record of 58''4"
in the shot put set in the Kansas
Relays this spring and Tom Dolan
\will try to better his best mark of
6'5" in the high jump, set in last
week's OSU meet.
As for the running events the
same group that gave Ohio State
such a hard fight last week will
again be out to take the two-mile,
mile and middle distance events..
Johnson will be trying for the 440
record and Barten is expected to
turn in his usual excellent per-
formance in the mile.
At the same time the power-
ful mile relay team, beaten last
week by an even stronger Buck-
eye team, is expected to have no
All in all Cornell, who was badly
beaten by a mediocre Penn team
last week is expected to give little
trouble and in all probability
Coach Doherty will use his men
sparingly in anticipation of next
week's Conference meet, when
Michigan will need every point
they can get.
The Wolverines will leave
from Willow Run Airport this
morning at 7:00 on a chartered
plane, fly to Elmira, New York
and travel the remaining 35
miles to Ithica by bus. Then af-
ter the meet they will reverse
the procedure and expect to be
back tonight by 9:30.
This will be the first time in his-
tory that a whole Michigan track
team will fly to and from a meet
although part of 1941's squad flew
out to California.

(Special to The Daily)
ROYAL OAK, May 21-The
University of Detroit baseball
team greeted its cousins from
Michigan tonight with a thun-
derous barrage of base hits which'
sent the Wolverines scampering!
back to Ann Arbor with their tails
between their legs.
Seeking fulfillment of the re-
venge motif (Michigan shut out
Detroit earlier this year, 3-0, on
two hits), the Titans blasted two
Maize and Blue hurlers from the
mound with a 16 hit bombard-
ment good for 14 runs and a 14-
2 verdict.
Too Little and Too Meek
The Wolverines fought back
with a -nine hit attack, but it
was a case of too little and much
too meek. Cousins Pat Morrison
and Ed Heikkinen served up a
few too many fat pitches to the
Motor City lads and the result
was disastrous.
After Michigan went down in
order in the top half of the first,
the Titans unleashed the first
major attack. With one away,
Bob Gorman pumped a single into
left. Bob Prendergast followed
with a double play ball to Dom
Tomasi, but the second sacker
bobbled and both men were safe.
Drake Orr then walked, Dick
Reading fanned, and Bob Heym
drew a base on balls to force in
the first run. Warren Hintz, Gene
Miaracki, and pitcher Bob Miller
followed with singles and Detroit
had four runs, and Michigan, a
new pitcher. Heikkinen came in
to relieve and closed the inning
without further damage.
Counterattack Fruitless
Michigan launched a counter-
attack in the second but only
gained minor ground. After Jack
Weisenburger's lusty double, To-
masi atoned in part for his miscue
by singling the first sacker home
with the first Michigan run.
The Titans threw back the
Michigan gain in their half of the
second and added another run to
keep in the spirit of things. Gor-
man singled; Orr singled; Read-
ing singled and Gorman and Orr
No Chance to Regroup
Michigan was given no oppor-
tunity to regroup its forces as the
Detroit bats again began blasting
in the fourth grame. This time

The big Australian-born Califor-
nian dropped a heart-breaker as
a final rally failed to square his
second match.
Two down after 16 holes, Fer-
rier sank a 16-foot putt to win
the 17th with a par three as
Harmon missed a shorter putt.
Then on the last hole Jim fired
an iron shotthat stopped dead
within 18 inches of the pin. It
looked like a sure thing, but Har-
mon, winner of the Augusta Mas-
ter Tourney, drove in a beautiful
10-foot putt, halving the hole in
birdie threes and winning the

the Wolverines were sent into
headlong retreat as five Titan
runs clattered across the plate.
Orr began the fireworks with a
demoralizing home run. Reading
drew a walk, Heym singled, and
Hintz walked to load the bases.
Miaracki sent Reading and Heym
scampering home with a single to
lef t.
Miller and Boldt followed with
singles for two more runs and the
scoreboard read: Detroit 11;
Michigan 1. But Detroit wasn't
through yet. It added the coup de
grace in the fifth anddsixth when
it picked up one and two runs
respectively, on five hits and two
'M' Scores Again
Three successive singles in the
eighth gave Michigan its other
tally. Ralph Morrison, Weisen-
burger and Jack McDonald, who
was playing his second game of
the season, bunched the hits in a
mild attempt to save face.
Michigan will spearhead a new
attack tomorrow with Art Dole's
sturdy right arm as the Wolver-
ines strike to the west. Western
Michigan will be the objective of
the day.
Major League
By The Associated Press
Connie Mack's second - place
Philadelphia Athletics snapped a
three-game losing streak yester-
day by pounding five Detroit
pitchers for ten hits and nine runs
to whip the Tigers, 9-6. Elsewhere
in the Junior circuit, Boston's Red
Sox took their big bats out of
mothballs to rout the league-lead-
ing Cleveland Indians, 11-5. Ted
Williams led the Sox attack with
a perfect day at the plate. One of
his blows was a 400-foot homer,
his eighth of the season. Larry
Doby of Cleveland, stroked his
sixth round-tripper of the year in
the seventh with one mate aboard.
The Chicago White Sox finally
won a ball game. Bill Wight, for-
mer Yankee hurler, led the Pale
Hose to a 3-0 victory over his for-
mer mates. In racking up his first
shutout of the year, the Chicago
rookie held the Yanks to three
The Brooklyn Dodgers lost their
sixth straight yesterday as Billy
Meyer's hustling Pittsburgh Pir-
ates dumped the Bums, 8-4, at Eb-
bets Field. Frank Gustine, "a good
spring hitter," by his own admis-
sion, had a perfect day, rapping
five-for-five to lead the Bucs. The
only'other day game in the Na-
tional saw the Chicago Cubs
thump the New York Giants, 8-3.
Clarence Maddern and Ed Wait-
kus drove in seven of the Cub runs
with three homers and a triple
between them.
There were two night games
played yesterday, one in each
league. In the National, the St.
Louis Cards fell victim to the
southpaw slants of Warren Spahn
to the tune of 3-1.
In the American, the other St.
Louis team, the Browns extended
their mastery over the Washing-
ton Senators to two straight, as
they pounded out a 4-3 victory
over them.

PACE SETTER--Dave Barclay,
Wolverine Golf captain who will
lead the Wolverines in their last
dual meet of the season against
