Harried lni,9-0
Finish Current Season Undefeated
With Nineteenth Consecutive Win
Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-Michigan completed its first undefeated ten-
nis season in five years here yesterday with a tremendous 9-0 shutout
of Illinois.
The dual meet triumph was the 13th in a row this season for the
Wolverines and the 19th without defeat since May 11 of last year.
Played Outstanding Matches
All the Wolverine netters played outstanding matches in what
Coach Bill Murphy termed "our finest meet of the season." Three men
finished the season with perfect records.

Michigan's weekend victories

Lose to OSU
In Twin Bill
Special to The Daily
There is no joy 'at Michigan for
the Wolverines have lost out.
Michigan's baseball team, which
gave such healthy promise to fans
at the beginning of the season and
then faded to a hopeful third
place tie with Michigan State,
was finally crushed into a final
fifth place yesterday at the hands
t of Ohio State, now the Big Ten
Lose 13-4, 5-1
The champs from Columbus
rolled over the Wolverines twice,
13-4 and 5-1, in the double-head-
er yesterday which marked the
end of the Big Ten baseball sea-
son, along with the end of Michi-
gan baseball title hopes.
Wildness on the mound and er-
rors in the field had much to do
with the ill-fated double defeat.
Michigan pitchers just couldn't
seem to get the ball over the plate
as a complete parade of pitchers
-Bill Thurston, Don Poloskey,
Mark Ferrelli, Jim Clark and
Ralph Fagge-gave up a total of
10 bases on balls in the first game.
Dick Peterjohn handed' out six
free passes in thesecond. Thurs-
ton and Peterjohn were credited
with the losses.
Poorest Game
Along with this lack of control,
Michigan played its poorest defen-
sive ball of the season. Usually a
team of very few errors, the Wol-
verines completely reversed form
and committed five blunders in the
initial booming defeat. Then they
were guilty of two more misplays
while losing the second.
Michigan got off to a good start
in the opener, scoring two runs
in the first inning.
Moby Benedict led off with a
double to left center and then Bill
Fox walked. Both men advanced
on a wild pitch, Benedict racing
home on a long sacrifice fly off the
bat of captain Danny Cline. Fox
then stole third, and Ken Tippery
singled him home.
This slight lead was completely
erased by the end of the second in-
ning, however, as the poor Wolver-
ing pitching fell apart to let eight
runs cross the plate. Seven of
these came on only three hits, five
walks and a wild pitch.

- and highly-rated Illinois have
vaulted the Wolverines into th
favorite role in the impending Big
Ten title playoffs this coming
Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Although this was the fifth
whitewash accomplished by Mich-
igan during the year, none was so
impressive as the perfection-ap-
proaching performances of the
Michigan netters yesterday.
Tall Barry MacKay recovered
from Friday's subpar play, which
almost ruined his personal season-
* al all-victorious streak, to trounce
his Illini opponent in the first sin-
s gles match.
MacKay Beats Woods
MacKay, who was extended to
. three sets in a sloppy match with
Hoosier Captain John Hironimus
on Friday, had no trouble in dis-
posing of Illinois' Conrad Woods,
runner-up in Big Ten singles last
year. The Wolverine won in
straight sets, 6-4, 6-1.
Woods was unable to cope with
MacKay's blistering volleys which
were scattered uncannily into the
most unreachable parts of the
court. After a slow start, MacKay
was almost unstoppable by Woods.
'A slow start was the only short-
Scoming of Al Mann, Michigan's

SAIGON, South Viet Nam (A)-Premier Ngo Dinh Diem's govern-

at absentee Chief of State Bao Dai.
Both moves strengthened the drive for the playboy ex-Emperor's
eventual ouster.
Orders Arrest
The government ordered the arrest and trial on treason charges
of two top aides of Bao Dai and four other leaders of the civil war
which erupted against Diem April 28.

railwaymen and dock workers

The dock strike is set for to-

number from the wharfs at Liver-

Replies To Critics
Replying to critics who have
said Russia's prime objective at
any top-level, Big Four conference
would be to dissipate American
military strength in Europe, Sen.
George said:
"I don't think we can give up
anything at this time or rest on
our oars in any way. We can't let
our guard down now. No proposal
Russia makes should affect our
military efforts until we have had
time to see some real change In
the world situation."
Sen. William F. Knowland of

has contended that the Soviets are
aiming at bringing about with-
drawal of American troops from
the Continent.
He has predicted attempts to

New Proposal?
"They will probablyshave a new
disarmament proposal," he said.
"They are likely to suggest the
creation of a neutral zone between

*They may even propose that
the United States, Britain and
France on one side guarantee the
neutrality of a dividing zone while
they guarantee it on the other. We
should be prepared for some unus-
ually bold proposals from them."
Sen. George said he doesn't be-
lieve these proposals need be "dis-
