Two Frosh
Netmen Join
Two freshman question marks
will be answered over the Spring
Vacation when Coaph Bill Mur-
phy's tennis squad takes its spring
tour of the south.
The two frosh making the trip
are Pete Paulus and Al Mann, like-
ly prospects for this year's squad.
Under the Big Ten rules, fresh-
men are allowed to participate in
varsity sports this year.
* * *
PAULUS is a product of Chica-
go, and Holland, Mich. He started
playing when he was around 12
years old, by just batting a ball
around the court by himself. One
summer, in Holland, when he was
"playing around," Coach L. M.
Williams asked him if he wanted
to take a few lessons. Pete started
playing the game seriously then,
and he's still at it now.
Then, in Chicago, he joined
the net squad of St. George
High School. He played with
them for three years, winning
the Chicago Junior, City crown
when he was a sophomore and
the City High School title in his
senior year.
The Chicago swatter is 5 feet
1112 inches tall, and weighs 175
pounds. He has a very hard and
fast service, but it also is rather
unpredictable. The strongest part
of his game is his powerful fore-
hand shot.
* * *
MANN hails from Grosse Point,
where he served for three years
on the Grosse Point High School
squad. He has been playing ten-
nis for five years.
The Eastern Michigan Junior
title fell his way in 1950, as did
the Northwestern Ohio Junior
crown. Mann also was runnerup
in the Michigan State Doubles
Tournament that same year.
Mann feels the indoor play he
has had since coming up to Michi-
gan has improved his game a
great deal, and he looks forward
to more improvement in the re-
mainder of his college career.
His service is strong and con-
sistent almost all the time, and
his backhand shots are the best
part of his game.
Freshman Awards
Coach Matt Mann announced
yesterday that the following nine
freshmen have won swimming
James Bulloch, Battle Creek; Peter
Dow, Detroit; Edward Furdak, Dear-
born; John Hibbard, Jr., Grand Ra-
pids; Milton Hurd, Detroit; Robert
Marans, Detroit; Glenwood Miller,

Fisher Begins 32nd Year Peoria Nips
With Same Old Difficulties KansasFive

TORONTO-(A)-The powerful
Detroit Red Wings scored twice
while Toronto was shorthandedI
last night and went on to beat
the Leafs, 3-1, and advance to the
final round of the National Hockey
League's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

He may have lost all of his
proven pitchers and most of his
offensive batting power, but Coach
Ray-Fisher of the Michigan Wol-
verine baseball team isn't worrying
very much.
After withstanding 31 years of
wear and tear in the college base-
ball business, the prospect of re-
building a team doesn't phase the
veteran mentor. The turnover in
collegiate ranks is usually rather
rapid and this year will present
very few problems that he hasn't
met before.
SINCE he hung up his spikes
as an active player, Fisher has
guided the Wolverines to 14 West-
ern Conference championships,
eight in the last ten years. His.
life-time won and lost percentage
is an impressive .697.
The 1951 squad hit the depths.
After three straight years of
sharing the conference crown,
the diamond squad plummeted
to a tie for eighth place. And to
top this almost all of the out-
standing performers from last
year are gone.
This gives Fisher a Herculean
task to perform, but this problem
is not much more difficult or per-
There will be a meeting of
all freshmen and transfers who
are interested in trying out for
the freshman golf team this
afternoon at 4:30 at the Intra-

plexing than the many others that
he has solved in the past.
BEFORE COMING to Michigan,
Fisher was, a successful major-
league pitcher, first with the old
New York Highlanders (the pre-
decessors of the present day
Yankees) and after an intermis-
sion sponsored by the United
States Air Force he moved over

... rebuilding again
to the National League to toil for
the Cincinnati Reds.
In 1921, after a number of
successful and well-remembered
years in the majors (Coach
Fisher also pitched against the
notorious "Black Sox" in the
1919 World Series) he decided
to call it a career, and came to
the University of Michigan cam-
Since he has been here, only
four Michigan teams have fallen
below the .500 mark and he has
developed several outstanding ball
players, including Dick Wakefield.
However, Fisher maintains that
the two greatest collegians he ever
coached are at present members
of the Wolverine coaching staff.
This duo is composed of Bennie
Oosterbaan, head football coach
and Jack Blott line coach. Both
men avoided the professional dia-
mond sport and preferred to use
their talents in the coaching busi-
ness. Blott gave the big leagues a
fling, doing the backstopping for
the Cincinnati Reds for a while
before turning to coaching.

Williams Breaks Tie
I Last 8 Seconds
NEW YORK-(A')-A one-hand
shot by Howie Williams in the
final eight seconds gave Peoria's,
Caterpillars a thrilling 62-60 vic-
tory over Kansas' college cham-
pions last night in the finals of
the Olympic Basketball Trials.
With 15 seconds left and the
score tied at 60-60, Kansas' big
Clyde Lovellette stole the ball from
Marcus Freiberger and dribbled
the length of the court but missed
an easy layup while in the clear.
A PEORIA player picked off the
rebound and tossed the ball up
court to Williams, who took two
steps and let go on the fly from
20 feet out. The ball, as if carried
by destiny, made a graceful arc
and landed squarely in the basket.
In a third place consolation,
the Phillips 66 Oilers of Bar-
tlesville, Okla., smothered a le-
thargic and tournament weary
LaSalle team, 92-58, giving the
AAU powers a sweep against
their collegiate opposition.
The AAU Champion Caterpil-
lars and Kansas each send their
main forces to Helsinki in July
for the Summer Olympics.
The Olympic Basketball Com-1
mittee last night completed the
selection of the 14-man squad for
the Helsinki games by picking two
Oilers players to join the seven
from Kansas and the five from
the Caterpillars.
The two Oilers are Bob Kurland,
former Oklahoma A. & M. star and
the only man in the trials to play
in the 1948Olympics, and Wayne
Glasgow, former University of Ok-
lahoma player.

Harry Watson, 207 - pound
leftwinger of the Leafs, sent
Toronto's hopes soaring with a
blazing goal just two minutes
and 56 seconds after the open-
ing whistle but it was a short-
lived lead. Ted Lindsay fired
the equalizer less than two min-
utes later while Toronto's How-
ie Meeker was in the penalty
Tony Leswick, pesky Detroit
right winger, sent the Wings

and time for...

ahead to stay at 9:43 of the open-
ing period-his first goal of the
series. Gus Mortson of the Leafs
was in the penalty box when Les-
wick scored. And big Sid Abel,
one third of Detroit's production
line with Gordie Howe and Lind-
say. sank the insurance goal at
4:52 of the second period.
BOSTON--/)-Fleming Mack-
ell's sizzling 15-foot shot, fired
with less than six minutes to go,
enabled the Boston Bruins to
square their best-of-seven Nation-
al Hockey League Playoff Series
against Montreal's Canadiens with
a 3-2 victory last night at the Bos-
ton Garden.
