To day

Hopes for Conference Track Title Bright
Despite Saturday's Setback at Champaign


Wolverines Battle Reigning
Champs on Spartan Ground

Illini Nine Tops Big Ten;
M' Faces Detroit Today

The Michigan tennis squad will
meet its toughest competition
since the opening match with In-
diano, when it journeys to East
Lansing today to ake on the Mich-
igan State netters.
The Spartans are the Big Ten
defending champions this year,
and have very good prospects of
repeating their Conference tri-
umph again. Thus far this season
the only squad that has toppled
them was the Hoosiers, who edged
them out by a 5-4 score. The same
Indiana squad defeated Michigan
the previous day, 8-1.
* * *
THE RIVALRY between the
Wolverines and Spartans is pro-
bably one of the oldest in tennis
competition. The two squads have
met a total of 42 times to date,
with the Maize and Blue taking
33 of the 42 matchese.
Michigan State won the meet
last year by an 8-1 score, and
went on to an undefeated sea-
son. In comparing the two teams
this season, against the same
competition, the Spartans have
a slight edge.
Over last weekend, the two
k schools traded opponents, with
Michigan taking Wisconsin on
Friday and Illinois on Saturday,
while Michigan State had the Il-
lini Friday anti the Badgers Sat-
matches handil. Coach Bill Mur-

phy's Wolverines took Wisconsin
5-0 and Illinois 7-2. The Spartans
won from Wisconsin by a clean
9-0 sweep and downed the Illini
Indiana defeated both squads,
but they took Michigan handily, 8-
1, and they barely edged by the
Spartans, 5-4.
Coach John Friedrich appears
loaded with good talent up at
Lansing. Back with him from
last year's netters are Keith
Kimble, last year's number 5
singles runner-up, Richard Rieg-
er, the Big Ten number six
champ, and John Sahratian,
captain of the squad, and a
member of the Big Ten number
one doubles championship team.
In addition to these veterans,
Friedrich is also gifted with a
sophomore sensation, Stan Dro-
bac. Drobac has been going at a
tremendous rate all season, includ-
ing a two set trouncing of Wis-
consin's Jim Deloye, in which the
Badger ace did not win a single
Other good Spartan prospects
are' Doug Curley, Jim Pore, and
Tom Belton.
The Wolverine squad is in ex-
cellent shape for the meet. Mike
Schwartz, who was bothered by
a slight leg injury last week, re-
ported yesterday that the leg
is giving him absolutely no trou-
ble. Coach Bill Murphy indicat-
ed that he will use the same
team that he has relied upon
thus far this season.
The Wolverine regular season
record to date is four wins against
only one loss, and the squad ap-
pears to be gaining strength with
the experience of every additional
The next contest for Michigan'
will be this Saturday, when they
journey to South Bend for a match
with the Notre Dame net squad.

The Fighting Illini swept three
games this weekend to vault over
first place tenants Michigan and
Wisconsin in the Big Ten base-
ball race.
Illinois was counted out of the
pennant fight the first weekend
when it was thrashed by Michi-
gan, 20-7, and then split a double
header with Michigan State. Since
then, the Illini have come fast,
stepping over Indiana,. Purdue,
Wisconsin and Northwestern.
* * *
THE LATTER two clubs fell to
Illinois Friday and Saturday. Wis-
consin was stopped Friday, 5-2,
while Northwestern lost two pitch-
ers' duels, 2-1 and 3-2. The twin
loss, incidentally, dropped North-
western, once sharers of first place
with the Wolverines, to a tie with
Purdue for seventh position.
Wisconsin, after its loss to
Illinois, could do no better than
split with Ohio State the follow-
ing day. The Badgers fell apart
completely in the first game,
losing, 25-12, but recovered in
the finale to win, 9-7, after get-
ting off to a seven run first
inning lead.
The disastrous weekend slipped
the Badgers down a ndtch into
a second place tie with Michigan
as the Wolverines let Michigan
State get away with two wins in
three games.
Jack Corbett and Paul Lepley's
sparkling offensive and defensive
play were, the consoling factors
for Coach Ray Fisher. Tom Law-
son shut Michigan out Saturday
with a neat two hitter, to put the
finishing touches on a weekend
that included a tight 6-5 win over
the Wolverines at East Lansing
Piaul Giel, Minnesota's star
sophomore pitcher, nearly wrote
his name into the Big Ten rec-
ord book Saturday as he struck
out 16 Hoosier batters, two short
of the mark set by Illinois' Mary
Rotblatt in 1948. Needless to
say, Minnesota won, 2-0, to give
Giel his third straight Big Ten
In the second game of the twin
bill, the Gophers came from be-
hind to win, 6-2, leaving Indiana
firmly entrenched in the Big Ten
Purdue moved from last place
to a tie for seventh by taking two
games from Iowa, 3-2 and 4-1,
behind five hitters by freshmen
Dennis Blind and sophomore Ray
Three games were rained out
Friday and will not be replayed,
according to Big Ten rules. They
were Iowa at Indiana, Ohio State

Michigan's baseball nine travels
to the Motor City this afternoon
to face the University of Detroit
in its first non-Big Ten game in
three weeks.
Coach Ray Fisher is going to use
the opportunity to get a look at
some of his second line hurlers,
something he hasn't been able to
do recently as his three starting
pitchers have gone the route in
all nine Big Ten games thus far.
* * *
MILTON HEATH, southpaw ju-
nior from Waban, Mass., will pro-.
bably get the starting nod, Fisher
indicated, while freshman Ralph
Fagg and junior Larry Kinstle will
also see action.
The rest of the lineup will be
the same that lost two out of
three to Michigan State Friday
and Saturday, except that Fisher
plans to substitute freely.
Either Bill Billings or Jerry
Harrington will start in right
field, depending on whether the
Michigan State, Toledo and
Wayne finished in the top three
positions at the Mid-West
Championship Eliminations
Sailing Regatta held last Sat-
urday and Sunday at Lake Lan-
sing. The Michigan Sailing
Club finished fifth.
University of Detroit uses a right
hander or a southpaw.
Fisher also intends to get a bet-
ter look at freshman outfielder
Dan Cline "regardless who is
throwing." Cline saw action on
the spring training trip but re-
cently he has been used mostly
as a pinch runner.
Don Eaddy, who played with a
sprained ankle this weekend, re-
ports that it is completely healed.
Fisher wanted to give Eaddy the
day off, but the scrappy freshman
insisted on remaining in the line-

Last week's dual meet with Illi-
nois has thrown new light on the
Big Ten Track and Field Champ-
ionships to be held at Ann Arbor
May 30 and 31.
Though the fighting Illini took
the measure of the Wolverines
74 2 to 54/, the Michigan pic-
ture is far from dark.
As expected the Illinois harriers
piled up points in the pole vault
and dash events, while the Wol-
verines scored in the distances.
IN THE Western Conference
meet Jerry Welbourn of Ohio
State and Jerry Pickell of Wis-
consin should break- the Illini
monopoly in the pole vault and
deprive them of needed points.
In the dashes Willie Williams,
Joe Gonzalez, and Cirilo Mc-
Sween will run into stiffer com-
petition in the Conference. They
are given only the slimmest of
chances against Northwestern's
National Champion Jim Golli-
day and Iowa's Ivy Murchison.
In Saturday's dual meet the Illi-
ni swept all three places in the
hurdles, but it is questionable
whether or not they will be able
to beat such fine performers as
DuWayne Dietz of Iowa, Joe Cor-
belli of Michigan State, and Bill
Taylor of Indiana.

formances turned in Saturday by
Wolverine Bill Hickman, Roy Pel-
la, and Dan Hickman strengthen
Michigan's title hopes.
Bill Hickman turned in one of
the best two miles of his career
as he finished second behind
teammate Don McEwen. Of sig-
nificance is the fact that Bill
whipped Ocie Trimble of Illi-
nois by more than 10 yards.
Trimble finished third in that
event in the indoors while Hick-
man did not place.
Sophomore Roy Pella had a fine
day in the Discus. He hurled the
metal platter over 151 feet, barely
failing to place in the event. His
toss was the best that a Canadian
has ever done.

"YOUR HAIR looks as though it's been in the rein, deer," x
campus Caribou told Sheedy. "If you want to horn in on the
sororities, it might behoof a man of your elk to try Wildroot
Cream-Oil, America's Favorite Hair Tonic. Contains soothing
Lanolin. Non-alcoholic. Grooms hair neatly and naturally all
day long. Relieves annoying dryness. Removes moose, ugly dand-
ruff. Helps you pass the Finger-Nail Test!" Paul got Wildroot
Cream-Oil and now no girl wonders whether he's man or moose!
If your moose is cooked by unruly hair, collect a little doe and
take a taxi-dermist to the nearest drug or toilet goods counter
for a bottle or tube of Wildroot Cream-Oil. And ask for it on
your hair at the barber shop so your deer won't think you've let
herd down. (What she'll say will be moose-ic to your ears!)
