the squad from Western Michigan
College this afternoon at 2 p.m. on
the Ferry Field courts.
Coach Bill Murphy's tennis
team, fresh from an 8-1 loss to
z Indiana here last Saturday, has
gotten overrits "opening day" jit-
ters and are now ready to settle
" down to business.
COACH MURPHY announced
that he will probably be starting
the same squad he used against
the Hoosiers last weekend. This
means that freshman Al Mann will
be in the number one singles slot.
In the number two and three
slots are the team co-captains,
S t e v e Bromberg and Mike
Schwartz, respectively. Jay Webb
and Gene Barrack start in posi-
tions four and five.
Rounding out the singles lineup
will be Jim Stephans, the only
victor in the meet last Saturday.
*. * *
THE DOUBLES squad will con-
sist of Bromberg and Barrack,
Schwartz and Mann, and Stevens
and Bob Curhan.

... broken racket
Coach Murphy has had the
squad spend the past few days
primarily sharpening up the
finer parts of their games. His
confidence in their ability was
expressed by the fact that he is

for first-squad netters.
The only changes which will be
made for tomorrow's encounter
will be those which will be neces-
sitated by the Western Michigan
squad.
THE WOLVERINES are hoping
for an escape from the rash of bad
weekend. A good example of work-
ing against the fates was exhibited
by co-captain Schwartz.
Schwartz had. won his first
set 6-3 and was leading in the
second one 4-1,swhen his racket
suddenly broke on him. Picking
up another one, he went back to
work, but his power wasn't with
him any more. He won only one
more game in the rest of the
match and was defeated, 6-4,
6-1.
Jay Webb was another case of
hard luck. He got off to a hot start
and took the first set handily, 6-2.
Webb moved into a 5-1 lead in the
second stanza when the clouds
darkened for him. He dropped that
set 8-6, and then lost the deciding
one 6-2.
,, * ,*
IN THE WORDS of one Michi-
gan rooter, "This kind of thing
just can't go on indefinitely."
The strength of the Western
Michigan sextet has not been
definitely shown as yet. In their
only previous match, they bowed
to the Western Conference de-
fending champs, Michigan State,
8-1, taking only one doubles
match from the Spartans.
Bronco coach Hap Sorenson has
not yet announced his squad, but
it seems probable that he will start
the following men:
IN SINGLES, the number one
man will be Ed Foster, and he will
be backed up by Jack Vredeveldt,
Vale Brandt, and Dick Hinder-
shot in the two-four positions.
Dave Kistler and Bill Clink will
complete the singles line-up.
The doubles teams will be Fos-
ter and Brandt, Vredeveldt and
Clink, and Hindershot and Kistler.

By DICK LEWIS
When Michigan's golfers jour-
ney down to the University Course
at Champaign this weekend they'll
be getting a 63-hole preview of the
Big Ten Championships to be de-
cided on the same course late in
May.
Saturday's opposition is a weak
Illinois links squad which has
dropped two straight and doesn't
figure as much of a contender in
the meet for all the marbles.
COACH Bert Katzenmeyer's
charges will therefore take full ad-
vantage of the Illini junket with a
27-hole practice session on Friday
and 36 holes in competition the
next day.
A six-man Michigan team,
considered by Katzenmeyer as at
least "two shots stronger than
last year throughout the entire
squad," leaves tomorrow for the
Illini lair with a three-meet
winning streak on the line.
Katzenmeyer is pointing to the
Championships with a combina-
tion which he feels is stronger
than last year due to experience
and accurate shooting. Although
the scores are still averaging high,
last year's ups and downsseem to
be paying dividends.
THE BIG problem now is get-
ting the back men to shoot lower
golf and thereby add the needed
b a 1 a n c e. Recent performances
have done much to solve this prob-
lem.
Take rotund Hugh Wright,
for instance. The Battle Creek
junior, who shoots in the num-
ber five position, came home
with a 73-73-146 effort in the
intra squad Yellow and Blue
matches last weekend to garner
medalist laurels.

Little Lowell Leclaire, number
six shooter for the Wolverines,
gave evidence of better things to
come with a three-over-par 75 in
the 19-8 win over Detroit.
AS USUAL Katzenmeyer will
bank on Captain Dean Lind in the
first positionand senior Dick Ev-
ans in the second slot.
Lind is the steady senior from
Rockford, Illinois, who returned
medalist against Duke and Wake
Forest with a 71 and 75 respec-
tively,
Brilliant at times and at other
times mediocre, Evans showed
formidably against Detroit with a
one-under-par 71 on the Michigan
Course.
RANGY BUD JONES of Ash-
land, Ohio, remains the seventh
man on the squad, but is still in
contention for conference play.
He carded a 154 over the weekend,
and under Katzenmeyer's system
which puts onlythe hottest golf-
ers in action, Jones can be called
up at virtually any time.
While he regards the Illinois
scrap only as a warmup for things
to come, Katzenmeyer's big gain
from the contest will be a know-
ledge of what kinds of shots have
to be worked on to prepare Michi-
gan for its second, and most im-
portant, appearance on the Illini
home grounds.
And then there's always the old
adage that "any team is tough on
its own course." Katzenmeyer
hopes that the Wolverines play
like the home team come May 30-
31.

Batters sprayed hits all over the#
Ferry Field diamonds as pitchers,
with a few exceptions, had little
luck in holding the scores below
double digits.
* * *
SIGMA CHI turned in the high-
est score of the day when it wal-
loped Trigon, 20-5.
Gene Knutson led the win-
ner's blistering attack with four
hits in as many times at bat,
including one of his team's four
homeruns.
Kappa Sigma's Don Mitchell
didn't quite duplicate the no-hit-
ter he hurled the last time he took
the mound, but he did hold the

Eight Straight Victories Silence
Dismal Predictions for cM' Nine

Alpha Delts to three safeties
Kappa Sigma won, 12-4.

-I

By PAUL GREENBERG
The dismal predictions for Mi-
chigan's baseball team haven't
proved very accurate as the cur-
rent eight game winning streak,
and first place standing in the Big
Ten shows.
Coach Ray Fisher's squad tore
apart four unwary opponents who
came to Ann Arbor last week, scor-
ing shutouts in three games and
compiling 55 runs, an average of
11 per game.
IN THE pitching department
Jack Corbett ran his string of in-
nings without an earned run to 34
and established for himself an
amazing E.R.A. of 0.25. Corbett has
taken the number one hurling spot
for his own-getting there with
his fine control and variety of
stuff that keeps the batter off-
stride.
The "powerhouse" of the staff
is Marv Wisniewski, a freshman
lefthander who lacks only poise
for greatness. He scored two
shutouts on the home stand,
blanking Wayne on two hits 14-
0, and Ohio State on one single
Z-0, while Corbett scored the
other whitewash beating Notre
Dame, 3-0, on five hits.
Dick Yirkoski, another south-
paw, rounds out the top three.

Yirkoski has looked good at times
but needed a nineteen hit offense
and three double-plays to get past
Illinois-a game the Wolverines
won 20-7.
* * *
THE HITTING that was sup-
posed to be weak jumped from a
.300 southern trip average to .349f
for the home stand. Bill Billings
led the parade with a phenomenal
.571 average, and sophomore
catcher Dick Leach followed with.
a .450 mark.
Captain Bruce Haynam hit at
a strong .409 pace while clean-up
man Don Eaddy batted .375. The
blossoming of center - fielder
Frank Howell against Ohio
State and the pending return of
smooth-swinging Gerry Har-
rington, who has been sidelined
with a twisted ankle, promise to
give even greater punch to the
line-up.
The team's defense still leaves
something to be desired. Eight
miscues were committed in the
five-game home stand and aside
from the black marks that went
down in the score book some ob-
vious errors of omission were
made.

AL SILBERBERG paced the
winner's 11-hit offense with a
homerun and single.
Sigma Nu continued the run-
making fad, blasting Psi Upsi-
lon, 17-7. Jim McGarvey and
Dick Freeman each ripped three
hits, including a homerun apiece,
for Sigma Nu, with McGarvey
handling his team's pitching
chores as well.
Dale Ray unloaded a bases-
loaded homer for Delta Sigma Phi,
but Phi Kappa Psi still routed the
Delta Sigs, 18-8.
