N 21!'Had 8.,3
Dual Mark
Last Season
By DICK BUCK
Four new faces in the Wolverine
starting lineup proved valuable
faces as Michigan's tennis squad
pounded out an 8-3 dual meet
.~record and went on to finish
fourth in the Conference meet at
Evanston.
Outstanding among the new-
comers were sophomores Bob Ned-
erlander and Pete Paulus.
NEDERLANDER won most of
his matches during the season
while playing in the number six
spot, and then gained the Big
Ten singles championship in this
division. Competing for the num-
ber six title he copped two set vic-
tories over Dave Van Ginkel of
Iowa, Howard Trier of MSC, and
in the final over Indiana's top-
seeded Dick Bennett, 6-0, 6-3.
A Chicago area product Paul-
us surprised everyone with his
top flight showing in pre-season
practices and Coach Bill Mur-
phy selected him to start in the
number one position.
* * *
THE BIG TEN tourney proved
strictly a two-way race with In-
diana and Michigan State mon-
opolizing the top berths.
Nederlander's win provided
Michigan with its only champion-
ship but another new man Dave
Mills captured the number three
consolation tournament and an
Al Mann-Bob Curhan combina-
tion annexed the number two
doubles consolation. This helped
the Wolverines to a 2012 total,
only two-and-a-half less than
third place Northwestern.
IT FELL TO THE veteran-pack-
etd Michigan State . contingent to
break a Michigan dual meet win
skein in a clash of undefeated
powers.
The Maize and Blue had tak-
en, six straight; the Spartans,
boasting an 8-0 dual meet ree-
ord, proved the spoilers as they
trampled Michigan, 7-2.
Two-hander artist Maury Pelto,
the last of the quartet of new
faces, sustained his first loss of

the season in the number four
slot by dropping a 6-3, 6-0 match
to Dick Roberts.
NEDERLANDER had a hand in
tallying both of the Wolverines'
points. He outclassed Howard
Trier, 6-3, 6-4, in singles and then
teamed up with Mills, an ex-MSC
netter, to dump Trier and Pore in
the number three doubles compe-
tition, 6-1, 6-2.
In a return meet at East
Lansing the next week State
showed the previous week's score
to be no mistake as it scored an-
other 7-2 triumph.
Registering the big upset of the
meet Paulus toppled the unde-
feated Tom Belton in the number
two, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3, while Neder-
lander was again humbling Trier,
6-4, 6-4, for his seventh consecu-
tive win.
OTHER THAN this, however,
the Wolverines were completely
outplayed from the number one
match, where Drobac slaughtered
Mann, on down the line.
Coach Murphy's pre-season
practices were confined largely
to the indoors under the brow
of Ann Arbor's inclement spring
weather. Hence, Michigan en-
tered its opener against the Uni-
versity of Detroit with an inex-
perienced, uncertain lineup.
The netters came through to
trounce Detroit, 8-1, absorbing
their only loss in the number one
singles where Titan captain Bob
Wood downed Paulus, 6-0, 8-6.

WITH NEW confidence the
Maize and Blue journeyed to West-
ern Michigan on its first road trip
and took five singles matches from
the Broncos in a 6-3 triumph.
At Wisconsin the Wolverines
were forced to play indoors in
their Conference opener due to
rain, but managed a 5-4 margin
for their third straight win.
Returning homq the Murphy-
men breezed by Purdue, 8-1,
Northwestern, 7-2, and non-con-
ference Notre Dame, 6-3, before
facing MSC.
* * *
SANDWICHED between the two
State meets theMaize and Blue
had time to rack up its only shut-
out of the year. The meet was
never in doubt as it stroked to a
9-0 advantage over a weak Ohio
State squad.
Indiana supplied Michigan
with its final and worst setback
of the dual meet season, 8-1.

Pelto rated the only blue ribbon
with his 6-2, 9-7 upset over
Martin. Bennett handed Neder-
lander his first and only loss,
6-2, 2-6, 6-4.
Recovering from their inept-

ness against the Hoosiers the net-
ters reversed the totals in down-
ing Illinois, 8-1, at Champaign
the next day. The Wolverines
swept all the singles matches in
their final dual meet.

Men's Glee Club Campus
Favorites for 93 Years

' f ~ \p

Long an outstanding Michigan
tradition the Men's Glee Club of-
fers an unusual opportunity for
men students interested in joining
a vocal group.
The Club has sung from coast-
to-coast, from New York City to
Portland, Oregon, under the spon-
sorship of alumni clubs, concert
organizations, civic and service
groups, and school music depart-
ments.
TWO YEARS AGO, the Club
was- featured in a movie short by
RKO Pathe, "Songs of the Cam-
pus." Since then, the Club has
appeared on regular tour in such
cities as Detroit, Chicago, St.
Louis, Louisville, Philadelphia, and
New York. Last year the Town
Hall of New York played host in'
one of the high points of the
Spring Tour. The concert was re-
corded to be broadcast over short
wave on the Voice of America.
Performances also have been
broadcast over many large cities
stations as well as locally over
University programs. TV appear-
ances have been made not only
with the weekly University station,
but also with Ed Sullivan's "Toast
of the Town" from New York.
Beginning in 1859 the Glee
Club has a record of 93 years
of concert singing, placing it as
the oldest musical organization
on the campus and probably
among the earliest of college
glee clubs.
Singing, however, was only a
part of the act when the Glee
Club was started. The organiza-
tion at various times has includ-
ed a band, a small orchestra, na-
tive Hawaiian artists, a banjo
quintet, bird imitators, imperson-
ators and mandolin acts. In fact,
the club was known in the early
1900's as the University of Michi-
gan Glee and Mandolin Club.

AT THE beginning of the 1922-
23 season, the organization was
renamed the Michigan Glee Clubs.
An instrumental group remained,
however, and the musicians often
gave a concert during the early
part of a program and then re-
mained to play for a dance to
round out the evening's enter-
tainment.
Two seasons later, the final
step in the development of the
Glee Club was taken, and mem-
bership since then has been
composed solely of male vocal-
ists. The change took place
when the club planned to com-
pete in the annual contest of
the Intercollegiate Glee Clubs
and decided that it was best to
separate from the instrumental
group.
The Glee Club is under the di-
fectio nof Prof. Philip Duey, who
also is a professor of voice in the
University's School of Music.
Now in his sixth year with the
Men's Glee Club, Prof. Duey has
added considerably to the prestige
of the group. Besides his desire
for perfection in singing, he has
the knack of arranging music so
as to give freshness and variety to
even time-honored quartet num-
bers. To achieve the unusual, he
inserts a change in Rhythm or
adds some unexpected bit of stage
action or sound effects to brighten
up a selection.
