Tennis Captain Nederlander
Shows Great Improvement
By DIANE LaBAKAS °:' +a
An upset scored in the North-
western Ohio Tennis Tournament
last summer may be an indica-
tion of what feats can be expected
from Michigan's 1955 captain Bob
Nederlander.
Constantly improving each year, A
Nederlander rose to his greatest
height when he defeated top-seed- .

With second-year men account-
ing for six of the nine men fighting
for a position on the 1955 Michigan
11golf squad, the motto for this year
might well be "Sink or swim with
the Sophomores."
The burden of improving on
last year's record will be a tough
one for these men, who have not
yet tasted Big Ten competition.
The only veterans on the team are
Captain Bob McMasters and Andy
Andrews, a senior.
Included in the group are four
Michiganders, John Schubeck, Bob
MacMichaels, Steve Uzelac, and
Fred Micklow.
Three Detroiters
Schubeck, a caddy at the Loch-
moor Golf Club in Detroit, was a
regular competitor in Detroit jun-
ior tournaments, and two years
ago, he was runner-up in the Na-
tional Jay-Cee tournament which
was played at the University
course.
"Skip" MacMichaels, another
Detroiter, also compiled an out-
standing record while in high
school. A member of the Detroit!
Golf Course, he was junior cham-

the aionas.
door Another member of the Motor
City contingent is Steve Uzelac,
a past winner of the Hearst tour-
nake nament in the Michigan region,
gnter having garnered that title in 1953.
gara Steve was also Detroit high school
leg, champ that year.

the Fred Micklow is also another
shot veteran of Hearst tournaments,
trell having won in 1952 and finishing
and fifth the following year. Micklow
road is known as a consistent scorer
year and last year led the way in the

qualifying rounds for the U.S.G.A.
tournament,
Continuing to add to the roll of
winners of junior tournaments is
Henry Loeb, of Highland Park, Il-
linois. Loeb is a former winner of
the Chicago Junior District Cham-
pionship. His greatest claim to
fame, however, might well be
called his victory over Harvey
Ward in the Western Amateur, two
years ago.
Rounding out the "sophomore
class" is Dave Wakely of Wood-
ville, Ohio. His scores give a good
indication that he will be in the
thick fight for a position on the
team, his ability coming rather
naturally as the result of being
taught by his father, who is a pro-
f essional.

PETE GRAY
. . back in action

NEW YORK (A)-The National
Football League has abandoned
its efforts to reach a peace agree-
ment with Canadian football and
has adopted a divide and conquer'
strategy to end across-the-border
player raids.
At a special executive meeting,
called at the behest of the Detroit
Lions, the club owners agreed to
try Commissioner Bert Bell's plan
of seeking individual agreements
with the Canadian clubs to respect
one another's player contract and
options.
If enough Canadian clubs are
brought under sich contracts, Bell,
said, they will be forced to bring

credan.
Wisniewski, tabbed by Fisher as
his number one starter, has been
one of the top hurlers in the con-
ference for the past three seasons.
As a freshman in 1952 he pitched
three shutouts and ran up a string
of 22 scoreless innings while the
Wolverines were tying Illinois for
the Big Ten title.
Although bothered by a sore arm
during most of the next season,
Wisniewski came back to play a
vital role in Michigan's successful
bid for the NCAA crown. Last sea-
son the Detroit senior produced a
6-3 record over the entire cam-
paign.
Hopeful Outlook
While Wisniewski may be forced
to carry a major share of the load,
the rest of the staff is not lacking
in potential and may be able to
give the fast-balling left hander
considerable help.
Peterjohn, also a fire-balling
portsider, showed promise of de-
veloping into a starting hurler last
season. Posting a sparkling 1.89
earned run average over the 1954
campaign, he threw his blazing
fast ball past 46 batters for strike-
outs during the 38 innings in which
he worked.
Thurston, who also can throw a
fast ball when necessary, is one of
those baseball rareties - who seems
to be able to throw a sharp-break-
ing curve ball with a great deal of
control.
If the Norway, Michigan, hurl-
er is able to maintain both control
and poise when he faces actual
competition he could well develop
into one of the top first-year men
in the conference.
Bullpen Crew
The men who will be serving as
Fisher's bullpen crew are as yet
an unknown quantity. Returning
veterans include Ralph Fagge and
Mark Ferrelli, both of whom saw
some action last season.
Fagge's lack of control has kept
him from developing into one of
the top men on the squad, while
Ferrelli, a junior, showed some
promise as a sophomore but was
used only sparingly.
Another sophomore, Jim Clark,
has shown a great deal of poten-
tial during the practice sessions
thus far and may prove to be the
top-flight hurler for whom Fisher
is as yet looking.

pressure on the few which have
refused to respect the contracts
held by NFL clubs.
The principal objection to such
agreements again raised by De-
troit, is that the Canadian season
ends in November' and thereafter
the Canadian clubs are ready to
start signing U.S. college players.
The U.S. teams can't contact the
collegians until after theii' draft
meeting in January.
Molloy Situation
This was the situation in the
case of Gordon Molloy, the orig-
inal subject of this meeting. Mol-
oy, star University of Miami half-
back, signed 'with the Montreal
Alouettes and then with Detroit.
Bell refused at first to accept the
Detroit contract.
Later Bell reversed this decision
when two of the Canadian Big

Ottawa, signed players under op-
tion to NFL teams.

Big Ten indoor shot-put champ,
Dave Owen, Kramer should help
to give the Wolverines one. of the
top weights divisions in the con-
ference.

in the qualifyinground concludedC
Sunday evening at the Union1
bowling alleys. His winning total
edged by one pin the 3346 score
posted by Dick Born, who garner-
ed the runner-up spot.C
Other qualifiers were Jack Cross,
with 3328, John Morovitz, withr
3315, and Ralph Cross (no rela-
tion), with 3300.

Outdoor Favorites
The Wolverine cindermen must
apparently loom as favorites in
the Western Conference for the
outdoor season as a result of their
tremendous showing in the indoor
finals three weeks ago at Lansing.
The nucleus of the outdoor
squad will be potent, with such
championship performers as Owen
in the shot, Mark Booth in the
high jump, John Moule in the
mile, Gray in the half-mile, Ron
Wallingford in the two-mile, and
Jim Love in the hurdles.
After returning from the spring-
vacation jaunt, thetracksters will
be confronted with the problem
of staying in shape during a two-
week lapse in the schedule. On
Saturday, April 23, they will com-
pete in the Ohio State Relays at
Columbus, and will journey to the
Drake Relays at Des Moines, Iowa,
the following weekend.
Then follows the triangular meet
with Penn State and Navy at State
CollegenPa.; the Big Ten Relays
at Evanston, Ill.; the Chicago
Track and Field Club at Ann Ar-
bor; and the Big Teri Champion-'
ships on May 27-28 at Columbus.
