Netmen, Thinclads

Take Pair of Wins from Illini


* * * *

Tennis Team Garners Sixth

Straight Court Victory,


(:Special to The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN - Despite having
to play on poor courts, the Wol-
verine net powerhouse rolled up
win number six as they trimmed
Illinois, 7-2, here yesterday.
The Illini courts were in very
poor shape and caused consider-
able difficulty for the Wolverines.'
The courts had been repaired last
week and had not been used since,'
leaving the surface very rough.
UPSET OF THE match was the
number one singles. Michigan's
captain, Andy Paton, was defeated'
in three sets by Dave Brown, top
man for the Blue and Gold.
Paton looked tired on the
courts but he won the first set,
6-3. However Brown defeated
him in the next two sets, 6-4.
This was Paton's second defeat
of the season, as he lost to Notre
Dame's Bob David last week.
Paton was still off his stride in
the doubles matches. He and Dick
Lincoln were defeated by Brown
and Gene Buwick, number three
singles man for the Illini. The
first set of this match was a
tough one, going to 9-7. After
losing the first set, the Wolverines
also bowed in the second, 6-3.
THESE WERE the only Maize
and Blue losses for the day, the

rest of the squad coming out
In the number two singles,
soph netter Al Hetzeck had little
trouble winning in two sets 6-4.
His court opponent was Bud
Little, seeded second for the
Fred Otto also won with no
strain in two sets, trampling Gene
Buwick, 6-1, 6-1. Playing in the
number four slot was Dick Lin-
coln; who moved up from number
seven spot to take Mikulich's

berg, took the first set, 6-3, and
at first it looked like Lincoln was
playing in too high a berth. Lin-
coln would let this be the case and
came through to pick up the last
two sets 6-4 giving the Wolver-
ines their third win.
Don McKay had little diffi-
culty with his net opponent, Jim
Moses, winning in two sets.
However, Gordie Naugle was
pressed to three sets by Wilson
Desant, winning, 6-2, 2-6, 6-1.
Otto and Hetzeck teamed up in
the doubles to top Little and a
new man, Bob Garfield, 11-9, and
6-4. MacKay and Naugle topped
Moses and Desant in three sets
to givethe Maize and Blue their
seventh point for the day.

Scimitar Club
Fencers Cop
Two Places
Miellef and Young
Second, Third in Foil
Ed Micllef and Pete Young
placed second and third in yester-
day's state open foil champion-
ships as Byron Krieger continued
his domination of Michigan foil
fencing by retaining his crown for
the second consecutive year.
Held in Detroit at the Book-
Cadillac Hotel's Crystal Room, the
foil bouts proved a run-away for
Krieger. He did not lose a bout
in the finals.
* * *
A THREE-WAY TIE for second
place among Micllef, Young and
Dick Yasenchek of Lawrence Tech
was broken by counting total
number of touches. Micllef and
Young thus took second and third
with Yasenchek fourth.
Each had previously compiled
a one won and two lost bout
In the bouts, Micllef beat Scimi-
tar Club mate Young and lost to
Yasenchek and Krieger. Young
beat Yasenchek and lost of Micllef
and Krieger.
THE MEET, which also featured
open bouts in Sabre and Epee was
witnessed by an overflow crowd.
Paul Williams, Detroit radio an-
nouncer, announced the bouts.
Bela de Tuscan gave another
of his famous exhibitions, wit-
nessed by both attending and
television audiences.
All four finalists are eligible to
compete in the midwestern open
foils finals, next Saturday in Cleve-
land. Krieger is defending mid-
west champ in foil.

Barten returned to champion-
ship form in his anchor leg as
he snapped the tape with the
ten-point first place that put
Michigan ahead of Illinois in the
final totals.
Early in the meet, all chances
for victory seemed lost when Jim
Mitchell tripped in the high hu -
dles, and failed to finish.

WITH ABOUT 40 yards to go,
he was running ahead of Illinois'
Bob Hinkle in a close race. The
sophomore ace pulled ahead on
the last three hurdles, only to have
his drag leg stub the top of the
He wobbled for about ten
yards and then hit the cinders,
sliding on his stomach for an-
other five yards in a desperate
attempt to reach the finish first.
Mitchell did reach the line first,
but the judges had to haul out the
rule book. He hadn't crossed the
line, he had only managed to tag

it with his hand, and slide up to
about the length of his shoulder.

rules revealed that: "any competi-
tor rolling or crawling across the
finish line is not considered to
have finished until his entire body
is across the finish line."
Mitchell was disqualified.
The Wolverines picked up
more points in the low hurdles,
with Clay Holland beating out
Hinkle for first place and Don
Hoover placing third.
Other firsts for Michigan were
Jus Williams, who beat highly-
touted Vic Twomey in the two-
mile, Captain Bob Thomason in
the 880, and Sergeson in the 440.
* * *
THE QUARTER was an excit-
ing race, being run around all four
turns of the track instead of com-
ing out of the 220 shoot as is
usually done.
Sergeson ran hard around the
first turn, but couldn't fight his
way into line down the back
stretch. He was jostled around
on the outside all the way
When they came off the third
turn into the home stretch, he
and Barten turned on their sprints.
Barten, Sergeson and Illinois' Bus-
ter were running hard down the
stretch, with Sergeson edging
across the finish ahead of Buster,
who nosed out Barten.

The rival coaches, Karl Schlade-
man of Michigan State and Chick
Werner of Penn State, confirmed,
however, that neither record
would be acceptable because of the
strong wind which was blowing at
the backs of the hurdlers in the
two events.
A GAUGE set the wind at five
miles when Smith beat Penn
State's Jim Gehrdes to the tape in
the 22-yard low hurdles' in the
phenomenal time of 22.5 seconds.
The wind was estimated at nine
miles when he also beat Gehrdes
