Weyga ndt,
Olson Begins Last Year
In Golf- Squad Spotlight

111Batting Skigr, Injured
- - - - - - - - -- -

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer could-
n't have chosen a more able per-
former to hold down the number
one position on this year's Wol-
verine golf team than Bob Olson,
the present leadoff man.
The story of "Ole's" career is a
colorful one indeed. As a fresh-
man, he gave a preview of what
Michigan golf fans could expect
in the next ,three years when he
won medalist honors in the West-
ern Junior amateur tournament
and continued to the finals before
being eliminated by a slim one-
hole margin by Gene Coulter, now
a star at Purdue,
* * *
AS A SOPHOMORE he clinched
a. varsity position on a team that
won the Big Ten title in 1949. He
finished a strong sixth out of 54j
,Western conference linksmen in
the 72 hole medal tournament for
individual honors.
Around his home town of
Grosse Point, Bob has an al-
most Matchless record of suc-
cesses. He was undefeated in
four years of high school com-
petition and at one time or an-
other has won almost every pos-
sible Detroit junior crown.
BOB NAMES as his greatest

thrill the four-under-par 68 he
shot against Ohio State and Illi-
nois as a sophomore. Also stand-
ing high among his thrills was the
69 he fashioned against Sam
Koscis, highly-rated Michigan
amateur, in last year's meet with
the University of Detroit.
Recently he shot a 149 for 36
holes to defeat all three of his
opponents in the quadrangular
meet with Purdue, Indiana, and
Ohio State at Columbus. He
was playing in a foursome com-
posed of the number one golfers
from each of the other Big Ten
schools competing.
Trailing Coulter by five big
strokes at the end of the morning
round, he made a brilliant come-
Coach Newt Loken of the
Michigan gymnastics team has
announced that Connie Ettl has
been elected captain of the
1951-52 squad in addition to
being dubbed the most valuable
member of this past season's
back in the afternoon with a 2-
under par 70 to defeat Coulter by
one stroke.
Although winning the Big Ten
title is uppermost in his mind,
Olson won't consider this season
a success unless the Wolverines
gain revenge over the University
of Detroit. The Titans squeezed
out a 15-12 triumph over a
Michigan team loaded with
sophomores gaining experience
for more important matches.
Olson has worked long and hard
while playing under the colors of
the Maize and Blue and this may
well be the year that he will win
the Big Ten championship-a fit-
ting climax to his brilliant career.

Ilini Net
Team, 'M'
To Clash
A strong Illinois tennis team,
runner-up to perennial Big Ten
champ Northwestern last season,
will provide the first conference
opposition for Michigan's net
squad Friday in Champaign.
The Illini boast four returning
lettermen of the sextet that edged
the Wolverines by three points for
second place in the 1950 league
meet at Northwestern.
* * *
MOST SERIOUS loss is that of
captain and number one man Bud
Little, second best singles player
in the conference.
Coach Howie Braun is rely-
ing on last year's number two
player, Sonny Bradley, to fill
Little's tennis shoes.
Bradley a junior, won the 1947
Illinois state net championship,
and he promises to be a tough
match in 1951 play.
The other loss by graduation
was Wilson Besant.
* * *
PLUGGING THE two vacancies
for the> Orange and Blue are Lee
Bishop and Bob Hoffman, a soph-
omore. Bishop lines up at the
number six singles slot, while
Hoffman plays number three.
Aside from Bradley, holdovers
include Gene Buwick, Bob Ben-
north, and Jim Moses.
. Buwick is rated second best by
Coach Braun, a notch above his
'50 standing. Bennorth, number
three at present, was a league
finalist in number five singles
last season.
Moses' standing on the currernt
squad is fifth.
In doubles play, Illinois has the
veteran combo of Buwick and Ben-
fiorth, finalists in number two
doubles last year. They play the
same positions now.
FOR HIS top duo Braun has
selected Bradley and Hoffman,
and the Moses-Bishop t e a m
rounds out the lineup.
Friday's Maize and Blue test
will b the second scheduled for
the Illini, who warmed up last
week 'with an 8-1 conquest of
Washington of St. Louis.
Sophomore Hoffman was the
lone loser in that meet.
After Michigan, Illinois meets
seven more conference outfits-
Iowa, OSU, Indiana, Wisconsin,
Michigan State, Northwestern,
and Purdue-prior to the confer-
ence meet at Evanston May 24-26.
Gridmen Drill
The old man, Jupiter Pluvius,
visited the Michigan spring grid-
iron practice yesterday afternoon
with his specialty of rain, which
somewhat hampered the daily
scrimmage session.
A few spills resulted from the
slippery turf for the frosh and
others who have yet to prove them-
selves to the Michigan coaches as
these players engaged in a heateda
ing on, the more advanced com-
batants worked through a series
of plays at the other end of the<
gridiron. The players concentrated
on end runs, end arounds and short
passes into the flat zone. ,

Philadelphia Phils made good use

yesterday to defeat the New York

game series between the two Na-
tional League contenders. he loss
was the seventh in a row for the
slumping New Yorkers.
Kenny ~-eintzelman, crafty Phil
lefthander, yielded eight hits and
walked six, but was superb in the
pinches, leaving a dozen Giant
runners stranded on the basepaths.
Twice the Giants loaded the bases
with only one out, but the veteran
Heintzelman escaped each time
without a score against him.

NEW YORK--P)-Frank (Spec)
Shea, erstwhile -sore-armed right-
hander, took a long step forward
on the comeback road yesterday
when he pitched the New York
Yankees to a 4-0 triumph over the
Philadelphia Athletics. The shut-
out was the A's second in succes-
sion and the defeat their sixth in
a row.
The Yankees, in winning their
fifth game at home without a
loss, were hardly terrifying at
bat. They were held to seven
hits by lefty Alex Kellner but
benefitted by half a dozen walks.
They picked up a run in the
second inning, two more in the
fourth and gained their final
tally in the fifth.
Philadelphia loaded the bases
three times, in the second, third
