Illini MSC
Golf Squads
Lowly Rated
Have Little Chance
For BigTen Crown
(Third in a Series)
By DICK BUCK
Unless they show much more
than they have shown thus far
this season, the Michigan State,
Illinois, and Indiana golf squads
will present little threat in the
battle for the Big Ten golf crown
.tomorrow and Saturday.
Indiana finds itself in the best
shape of the three, having at least
chalked up a 4-3 record for the
1952 season. The Hoosiers' four
wins, however, were all against
very weak teams. They downed
Detroit, Bradley, Cincinnati, and
a bogged-down Illinois links squad.
LOSSES FOR Indiana were to
top teams, Notre Dame, Iowa, and
Purdue, but prove that the Hoos-
iers aren't ripe to annex a title
this year.
Coach Owen L. Cochrane will
probably be able to boast im-
provement over last year when
Indiana finished last in the
Conference meet.
Jack Leer, Jim Callis, and Elliot
x.7Phiips rate as his top golfers but
they have been as inconsistent as
Harold Bartholomew, Jim Balch,
and Dick White, the remainder of
the contingent.
* . *
COCHRANE has been forced to
shift his order a number of times
during the season, but the last
time out, he used Leer in the
number one spot and Callis in
' number two.
A team is always dangerous
on its home course, this may be
the only thing that will keep
Illinois out of the cellar in the
coming meet.
The Illini ended their season
with a very unimpressive 1-6 ree-
ord, dropping meets to such teams
as Indiana and Bradley.
WITH DEAN LIND and Dick
Evan carding 146 and 147 total,
the Wolverines had little trouble
besting Illinois in their dual meet.
Lind trounced Ken West, who
toured the course in 158 and Evans
stopped Capt. Vein Rascher, who
carded 151.
Junior Don Cassidy was med-
alist in the meet with his 75-57-
150, and along with Rascher, he
will constitute Coach Ralph
Fletcher's chief threat in the
Coinference,°
Though Michigan State wound
up its season with a 4-5 record,
the Spartan linksmen cannot be
considered in the running for top
honors since they haven't won a
conference dual meet all season
THEY WERE edged out by Wis-
consin and Illinois and were
slaughtered by Michigan to the
' tune of 16-2 in one of the dual
meets between the two schools.
The Wolverines could manage only
a 16-11 victory in the other meet
but even then were shooting far
off their usual pace.
The mainstay of the floundering
Spartans are Capt. Jack Zinn and
senior Carl Mosack. Zinn lost
rounds in both meets with Michi-
gan but combined with Chuck
Davenport to win over Evans and
Lind in one of the doubles match-
es. Mosack has also dropped both
his singles matches against Michi-
gan's golfers.

Grid Ticket
Sales Begin
Students wishing to purchase
tickets for Michigan's three away
football games in 1952 may make

ticket office starting Monday,
Ticket Manager Don Weir an-
nounced yesterday.
At the same time, Weir said,
student orders for extra ducats for
any of the six home contests will
be taken. These orders in no way
pertain to student season books,
which will be given out at regis-
tration this fall, Weir emphasized.

'M' Vies for Conference
NetChampionshpToa

By NEIL BERNSTEIN
The Michigan tennis squad will
begin its final and toughest test
of the year at Evanston today-
the Big Ten Championships.
The Conference standings will
be decided entirely on the basis of
this meet, which will run today,
tomorrow, and Saturday. Michi-
gan State, the defending cham-
pion, or Indiana is favored to take
the net ,crown.
THE WOLVERINE team is ex-
pected to either come in third
trailing the Spartans and Hoos-
iers, or else fourth behind Iowa.
However, in a sport as individually
determined as tennis is, anything
can happen when the chips are
down.
Coach Bill Murphy has made
only a few minor changes in his
lineup for the Conference Finals.
His singles line-up will be Al
Mann at number one, Steve
Bromberg in the second slot,
Mike Schwartz the number three
man, Gene Barrack and Jim
Stephens at four and five, re-
spectively, and Jim Holtz in the
sixth position.
Kuehn Sets
Conferense
Hitting Mark
CHICAGO-(P)-Harvey Kuehn,
sensational Wisconsin shortstop,
set three Big Ten records and tied
another in one of the most spec-
tacular sweeps of modern Confer-
ence baseball history, official sta-
tistics showed today.
KUEHN, WHO finished second
in batting with .444, had a record
28 hits for a 15-game schedule;
set a new mark in total bases with
47; .struck out only once in 63
times at bat for another record,
and matched the record in three-
bagger production with five.
The individual batting title
went to Purdue's Harold Hanes
with .450 in 40 times up. The
Boilermakers' took the team bat
crown with .282.
Harold Wallace of Purdue tied
Frank Howell of Michigan in home
runs with three each.
GUST VERGETIS of Wisconsin
drew the most walks, 11, while Don
Luft of Indiana struck out the
most times, 15. The most sacrifices
were by Bruce Haynam of Michi-
gan with five, another record.
Michigan won team fielding
honors with .964 while Kuehn top-
ped shortstops with only two er-
rors in 69 chances.

Taylor defeated Huber (forfeit)

Holtz took the sixth position in
a playoff held this week between
himself, Bob Curhan, and Bob
Paley. Curhan defeated Paley
Monday, and then lost to Holtz in
two straight sets Tuesday. This
playoff was caused by the an-
nouncement that Jay Webb, the
former number five netter, had
decided to drop off the squad for
the rest of the season.
* * *
IN THE DOUBLES, Murphy will
have Bromberg and Barrack play-
ing the first slot, Mann and
Schwartz, the second duo, and
Stephens and Paley in the third
position.
The actual set-up of the tour-
nament will be decided by a meet-
ing of the coaches to be held some-
time this morning. As things stand
right now, they have three pro-
posals for the running of the
tourney.
ALSO, ANY SEEDING which is
necessary will be determined at
this morning's meeting.
The Wolverines' best tourney
hopes appear to lie in the last
three singles and the doubles
classes. Barrack, last year's fifth
singles champ, has a good
chance of adding the fourth
singles laurels to his record, and
also Stephens is given a good
chance of going places at the
fifth slot.
The first doubles team's chanc-
es cannot be determined as yet,
since the important matter here
seems to be how much the three-
week lay-off has affected Steve
Bromberg.
However, Mann and Schwartz
did a very fine job at first slot in
Bromberg's absence, and should
make a fine showing in the sec-
ond position. Stephens and Paley
seem to stack up with the best
of the third doubles teams.

cles dealing with tie Western Con-
ference outdoor track and field cham-
pionships to be held at Ferry Field
May 30-31.)
By DAVE LIVINGSTON
With the favorite, or at least
co-favorite, in four of the five
field events, Michigan's chances
to cop the title in the forthcoming
Big Ten track and field meet won't
rest entirely on the cinder paths.
Ace weight-man Fritz Nilsson
heads the talented crop of Wol-
verines who cavort inside the oval
track.
* * *
THE BIG Swede will be out to
overthrow defending champion
Bob Carey, Michigan State's All-
American gridder, in the shot put.
The Spartan won the event last
year with a 53-foot toss, but this
spring he heaved the shot 53 feet,
eleven inches for his best effort to
date.
Nilsson, however, has a top
mark of 54 feet, five and one-
half inches outdoors. He took
last winter's conference indoor
meet with a 53 foot, seven and
three-fourths inch performance.
Former Maize and Blue great
Charlie Fonville holds the confer-
ence record of 56 feet, five inches,
which he set in the 1948 outdoor
championships.
AMONG OTHER shot putters
who have been showing well are
Mary Berschet of Illinois and Mi-
chigan State's Don Schiesswohl, in
addition to Wolverine Tom John-
son. Johnson is a 50-footer while
the others are approaching this
mark.
With a discus in his hand
Nilsson stands in a class by him-
self. The Swedish star's best
throw of 169 feet, one-half inch
exceeds by more than ten feet
the top efforts of such men as
Berschet, George Holm of Min-
nesota, Clyde Gardner of Iowa,
and teammate Roy Pella.
Last year's winning toss of 153
feet, three inches was turned in by
Indiana's Clifton Anderson, who
will not be back to defend his title,
The Intramural Building will
be closed on Friday and Satur-
day, May 30 and 31, due to the
Big Ten Track Meet.
-Earl Riskey
while the Big Ten record of 178
feet, eleven and one-half inches
was established by Fortune Gor-
dien of Minnesota in 1948.
IN THE high jump Ron Mitchell
of Illinois and Michigan's Milt
Mead will resume a personal duel
that has seen Mead win twice,
Mitchell once, and one tie.
Mitchell came out on top on
their first meeting when he cap-
tured the conference indoor
crown, but since that time,
which was Mead's first var-
sity meet, the lanky Wolverine
hasn't been whipped by his riv-
al.
The two tied for the victory in
their last clash at six feet, five
and five-eighths inches, in the Mi-
chigan-Illinois dual meet. They

each have been consistently bet-
tering the best performances of
defending champion Jim Harper
of Indiana.
* * *
WOLVERINE Horace Coleman
and Ohio State's freshman sensa-
tion Bill Hairston should put on
quite a battle for the first place
points in the broad jump.
Coleman, however, is probably
a slight favorite to add the out-
door title to the one he grabbed
indoors last winter with a leap
of twenty-two feet, eleven and
three-fourths inches. The Buck-
eye neophyte didn't participate
in the indoor festivities.

Art Kurtz of Northwestern and
Stan Levinson of Iowa, along with
Wolverines Jack Rose and Lowell
Perry, will be putting in strong
bids to place in the event.
Illini Dick Coleman and Dick
Calisch, who finished one-two in
the indoor championships, appear
to have the pole vault pretty tight-
ly sewed up. Both have been clear-
ing better than fourteen feet.
Jerry Welbourn of Ohio State,
Dale Foster and James Wright of
Illinois, and Michigan's Roger
Maugh, an improving sophomore
who last week got off a 13-foot
vault, will provide some of the
stiffest competition.
