Baseballers Look Ahead
To Key Tilts with MSC

By PHIL DOUGLIS
Michigan's embattled baseball
squad journeys to Detroit this af-
ternoon where it will take on a
mediocre University of Detroit
squad in the season's last exhi-
bition game.
On April 14, Michigan easily
took advantage of seven Detroit
errors to romp to a 6-1 victory,
and going by recent games, it ap-
pears as if the Wolverines will not
be in too much danger. Coach Ray'
Fisher plans to start sophomore
Mike Bellows on the hill today, to
be followed by Dick Peterjohn,
Ralph Fagge, and Jack Ritter.
THE REAL danger comes this
weekend, as Michigan squares off
with, Big Ten leader Michigan
State in three big games, games
which will have a tremendous
bearing, on the conference race.
By taking two out of three
games on the road last weekend,
the Fishermen lost their grip on
the top rung, while the slugging
Spartans pulverized Iowa once,
and Minnesota twice. Michigan
did Just the opposite, ripping
Iowa twice, 8-3, and 2-1, while
dropping a heartbreaker to Min-
nesota's Paul Geil and company,
! 3-2.
It therefore appears that the
b'Mg series this weekend, which will
find the Wolverines traveling to
East Lansing for a single tilt on
Friday afternoon, and' returning
here for a big Saturday double-
header, is the key series of the
entire season.
SHOULD the Wolverines sweep
the series, the conference title
would be practically stored in Ray
Fisher's locker, for the Wolverines

have only to play mediocre Ohio
State once, and ninth place In-
diana twice following the Spar-
tan series.
If the Michigan nine should
drop the series however, prac-
tically all hope of retaining its
Big Ten, crown would be wiped
outs
The Minnesota tilt at Minnea-
polis last Friday was a game that
could have gone either way. Michi-
gan's Jack Ritter and the Gopher's
Giel both pitched fine ball, and
it took a ninth inning homerun
shot by Minnesota centerfielder
Johnny Wallfred to decide the
issue.
MICHIGAN showed that it had
the comeback ability of a cham-
pion the next day, by moving on
to Iowa City and deflating the
highflying Hawks.
Howie Tommelein pounded out'
four hits in the twin bill, adding
greatly to the batting support giv-
en to hurlers Mary Wisniewski,
and Jack Corbett. Wisniewski
scattered six hits, while Corbett
gave up only five, as the Wolver-
ines avenged last season's twin
defeat to the Hawkeyes.

Rain and an experienced team
from Michigan State combined to
spoil the season's debut of Mich-
igan's soccer squad last Saturday
at East Lansing in an unexciting
game won by Spartans, 3-1.
The lone Wolverine goal was
scored by Dario Vega with ten
minutes to play in the final
period. Michigan State had al-
ready clinched the victory, how-
ever, with single goals in each
of the first three quarters.
A return engagement is sched-
uled for this Saturday at 2:30
here on the soccer field east of
the Michigan Stadium. This will
be the only home match the spring
season for the Wolverines, who
next fall hope to be members in
the Midwestern Collegiate Soc-
cer Conference.

Spartan Nett
Squad Lacks"
Experience
By DAVE GREY
The Wolverine tennis team has
its work cut out for it this week,
as it travels to East Lansing to
play Michigan State this after-
noon and returns to face unde-
feated Western Michigan here on
Wednesday.
The Spartans are dangerous buts
not as strong as last year, due'
mainly to lack of experience. Cap-
tain Jim Pore, only returning let-
terman, will probably face Al.
Mann in the number one singles.
Two sophomores however, Davel
Brogan and Dick Menzel, give the
Statemen strength in the other
top singles positions.
THE DOUBLES line-up is un-
certain, but the two Brogan broth-
ers, Dean Britton and Dana
Squire will probably team up, both
being former prep school com-
binations.
After tackling State, Michi-
gan will try to break Western
Michigan's victory string at
nine. The match will be held
here on Wednesday afternoon,
starting at 2:30 in the Varsity
courts.
Western key spots are held
down by number one man, Ed
Foster, who will combine with
letterman Jack Vredevelt in num-
ber two doubles. Number two and
number four singles men, Jim
Farrell and Charles Donnelly, will
meet Pete Paulus and Bob Paley
in first doubles.

The new rule provides for a
second foul throw if the first shot
is successful. If the first throw
is missed, however, the ball will
be in play.
After observing the rule under

time, place more emphasis on good
