Wolverine

Netmen

by Paul Greenberg

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, to prevent bronchial infection, it's good
tget some irksome matter off your chest.
Our latest and biggest beef came when we opened our spanking-
new 1953, camaflouge-colored Michiganensian. Being of a singular
mind, our initial reaction was to turn to the sports section of this
worthy publication-and it was quite a discouraging experience.
A yearbook, if our orientation is correct, is designed to give
you a lasting, somewhat sentimental impression of the alma mater.
Despite the rather dubious need for glorification, there remains
constant the'duty of such a publication to stick to the facts, and
it's distressing when it doesn't.
In a cursory look-through of the '53 Ensian's sport section (cov-
ering somewhat over 50 pages) we came across at least two dozen
factual blunders-all of which means that something went wrong
somewhere. When the Ensian takes its place in the home of a Michi-
gan alumnus it is supposed to give an accurate picture of the school
year-true, athletics doesn't form the major part of the publication
but there is still no reason for spelling a world-famous swimming
coach's name incorrectly (Matt Munn instead of Mann) for giving
an incorrect score of a football game (the cardinal sin I'm told) and
for leaving scads of interesting pictures nameless and without descrip-
tion.
Dearth of Referees
THE WORLD OF BOXING has been getting on our nerves lately-
we're wondering just when the denizens of the pugilistic sport
will decide to get hold of a couple of men that can referee a bout.
The recent "fast-count" fiasco in the heavyweight championship
go between Champion Rocky Marciano and ageless Jersey Joe Wal-
cott brought the picture even more clearly into focus. Yet when we
think of poor ring officiating we can't help but remember a rout in
which Walcott came out on the long end.
In this match mustachioed Ezzard Charles was trying to pull
that yet-to-be-accomplished feat of recovering a lost heavyweight
title. The official in question was Zack Clayton, part-time member
of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball circus, and what he pulled on
Charles that night was no laughing matter.
Clayton would gently hold Pappy Joe and viciously shove
Charles when breaking the clinches-he was constantly repri-
manding the younger boxer for low blows, while though Wal-
cott's gloves several times slipped under the "Everlast" label on
Charles' shorts, he never heard a word from Clayton. When the
bout was over and Walcott still had his aging haunches on the
heavyweight throne, Clayton almost smiled with the satisfaction
of accomplishment.
If poor refing can invade the championship ranks (witness the
Carter-Collins lightweight title go when the Boston Irishman spent
more time on the horizontal than vertical) we can't but wonder what
kind of garbage is officiating the smaller bouts. This kind of poor
management slams a blow right into the solar plexus of the ring
sport-which has lately professed an attempt to "clean house." It's
pretty discouraging to boxings fandom when it has this stuff foisted
on it.

carried to three sets before State
gained the decision.
John Sahratian and Dick Rob-

their margins for the previous

6-0, 6-2, exuding brilliance in all
points of play.
Dave Mills bowed again to his
ex-teammates. Competing against
Sahratian he dropped a close first

a 6-4 win in the second set, and
then was edged in the final set, 6-4.

'M' Golfers Face Titans
In Dual Meet at Detroit

to,

MSC,

7-2

By JIM DYGERT
After a short two-day rest, the
Wolverine linksters return to ac-
tion today in a dual meet against
the University of Detroit Titans.
Besides Saturday's defeat by the
Buckeyes and the two losses suf-
fered on the southern training
trip, tle only blemish on Michi-
gan's 1953 golf record is the 131/2-
13%/ tie with the Titans on the
University course last month.
ALTHOUGH NOT a highly-re-
garded squad, Detroit combined
some steady playing with erratic
Wolverine golf and gained the tie
on the 18th hole when Sophomore
Ray Maisevich sunk a 15-foot
clutch putt for a birdie three.
In other competition with Big
Ten linksmen this season, the
Titans have encountered only!
Michigan State, upsetting the
improved Spartan outfit in their
first meeting, 14x-121/, and
dropping the second battle, 19-8.
A veteran of three years in the
golf wars, 27-year-old Mike An-
donian captains the Titan squad.
Andonian fired the lowest round,
77, for Detroit in the - match
against Michigan.
* * . * 1
JUNIOR BILL Huetteman, win-
ner of last year's Fisher Golf Tour-
nament, plays the number two spot
for the Titans. In the win over
Michigan State, Huetteman tied
Spartan Biff Hills for medalist1
honors with a 74.
Another'Titan swinger is Roa
Stelter, who surprised Detroit
Coach William Jroyce in this
year's Fisher Tournament by
dumping last year's captain,
Tony Novitsky, by four strokes.

Joyce's sextet is rounded off by
three other sophomores, Maisevich,
Ray Conlon, and Don Fraser. Con-
lon played for Detroit last year as
a freshman.
The Wolverines leave for De-
troit today with the same sextet
that played in Saturday's quad-
rangular meet, Captain Hugh
Wright, Lowell LeClair, Jack
Stumpfig, Bud Stevens, Tad
Stanford, and Warren Gast.
LeClair faltered somewhat in the
quadrangular affair, his 78-79-
157 being ten strokes higher than
his medalist effort the Week before
at East Lansing.
Stevens and Stumpfig were also
off formSaturday. Stevens turn-
ed in a 152 and Stumpfig a 155,
both scores far removed from their
143's when they tied for lowest in
Michigan's triangular meet with
Northwestern and Iowa.
The Detroit match offers to the
Wolverines the last competitive
warm-up before the Big Ten cham-
pionship meet at Madison, Wis-
consin, on May 29 and 30. After
the match, Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer's charges will settle down
to some serious practice in prep-
aration for their Big Ten title de-
fense.

Uncooperative Weatherman
OUR LAST COMPLAINT for today deals with the obvious and tragic
mismanagement of the Indiana Weather Bureau. The Hoosier
rainmaker may well have dealt a fatal blow to the Michigan baseball
team's aspirations in the Western Conference pennant chase.
Ready with two top-flight pitchers to go against the victory-
less Indiana aggregation, Coach Ray Fisher's crew saw its twinbill
rained out and Michigan had to settle for a single 3-2 conference
triumph over Purdue on what seemed to be a promising three-
victory weekend.
There still is a mathematical possibility that the Fishermen can
snare the league laurels, and the return to form of southpaw hurler'
Marv Wisniewski, who's been laid up with arm troubles, may heli.
But if Michigan comes through on top, it won't be with the coopera-
tion of that Bloomington weatherman who, in conjunction with old
Jupiter Pluvius, dampened the Wolverines chances for a double win
against the "roll over and play dead" Hoosier diamond squad.
