With its first taste of competi-
tion in two weeks, Michigan's
up-again-down-again golf squad
showed some signs of life last
weekend.
By. thoroughly squelching the
University of Detroit linksters,
21/2-11/2, the Wolverines earned
their first taste of victory since
April 26, when they squeezed out
a victory over Michigan State.
At this stage of the season,
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer express-
ed a great disappointment in his
team's showing. Saturday's meet
brought a complete reversal of this
as the linksters made a much bet-
ter showing than Katzenmeyer ex-
pected.
The most inspiring effort of the
day was turned in by Henry Loeb
as he earned medalist honors.

In the morning round Loeb com-
bined a pace-setting three under
par 33 with a one over par 37 for
the finest round of the day. In
the afternoon he ran into trouble
on the first three holes as he con-
tinually flirted with the out-of-
bounds markers, but settled down
and on the back nine turned in
another par-breaking performance
by scoring a 34.
Andy Andrews has also shaped
up tremendously in the past two
weeks and has been hitting the
ball well again.
John Schubeck proved to be the
greatest disappointment of the
day as he turned in an afternoon
round of 79. Schubeck has been off
his stride since the Ohio State
meet nearly a month ago.

Captain of Lloyd's champion
touch football team, he was also
the all-star residence halls quar-
terback in the fall. He also gained
a spot on the "dream" basketball
quintet; and, added to this, was
number one man on Lloyd's cham-
pionship table tennis squad. Also,
he ran the anchor leg for Lloyd's
winning relay team.
Other sports participated in by
Watson were: indoor and outdoor
track (he scored points in both

of these), cross country, volleyball,
handball, bowling, wrestling, pad-
dleball, water polo, foul shooting,
softball, horseshoes and tennis.
Also in contention for the cup
were Ed Godfrey and Erle Kauff-
man of Gomberg and ' Warren
Wertheimer of Sigma Alpha Mu.

Jaffe, along with sophomores
Barry MacKay and Dick Potter,
are being counted on by Coach
Bill Murphy to bring undefeated
Michigan the Big Ten title Satur-
day at Evanston.
With an improving net game
and service, Mark's hustle and
good smash have enabled him to
win 11 matches against 2 losses,
although occasionally plagued by
back and leg injuries.
Unbeaten in Doubles
Mark and his doubles partner
Bob Paley have swept through the
season undefeated and will be fav-
ored to win the Big Ten third
doubles crown.
"This is our year to win the
championship," he said while
talking about the team's title
chances. "We're so deep in'
strength that one player could
beat another on any given day."
Motivated by his brother, Jaffe
began playing tennis at the age

of 10 in Bay City where there was
always plenty of competition.
He played in his first tourna-,
ment at 14 and, although he never
had had a lesson, won the boys'
state doubles championship. Three
years later he annexed the junior
singles and doubles titles.
Jaffe reached the quarter-finals
of the nationals that same year
and won the River Forest doubles
title before being defeated in the
singles finals by teammate Mac-
Kay. These performances gave
him a national ranking of tenth.
Illness prevented him from com-
peting in many tournaments last
summer but he expects to enter
most of the state's major meets
this year.
Besides being one of his team's
top players, he is also the schol-
astic leader, carrying a 3.7 aver-
age.
Kuenn Hurt
KANSAS CITY (P)-Shortstop
Harvey Kuenn of the Detroit Tig-
ers, one of the American League's
leading hitters, pulled a muscle
in his left thigh in the first inn-
ing of last night's game at Kansas
City,

scoring power in the mile relay,
pole vault, and shot put. Their
most glaring weaknesses are in
the dashes and the other, field
events.
Fessenden Tops
Fessenden rates as one of the
strongest quartermilers in the
conference and should finish ei-
ther first or second. His best time
of 47.4, is almost a full second
faster than Grant Scruggs of
Michigan, the Wolverine's top
quarter miler.
Fessenden also should be con-
tender for the 220 yard dash.
Along with Michigan's Dick Flodin
both of whom have covered the
distance in 21.8, the second best
conference time-he rates as a
strong threat for the title.
In the half mile run, Pete Grey,
one of Michigan's star middle dis-
tance runners, will have his hands
full trying to beat Cryer. Cryer has
the fastest time in the conference
at 1:52.3, but only a tenth of a
second faster than Grey.
Strength in Hurdles
Much of the Illini strength lies
in the hurdles. With Thomson
running in the 120 yard high hur-
dles, Illinois stands a good chance
of taking both first and second.
In the 220 yard low hurdles,
with Michigan's leading contend-
er Jim Love handicapped by an
injury, Thomson should be able to
capture this event. Love will prob-
ably compete, but is not expected
to be in anywhere near top form.
Jonsson is the Illini's leading
threat in both the mile and two
mile. Jonsson holds a victory over
Ron Wallingford, in the two mile
race, and has an excellent chance
to cop the conference title. In the
mile, he does not. figure to place
better than third.
Foster, who has won the pole
vault title for the last two years
is Illini's leading threat in the
field events. His top marke of 13'
8%" is the second best in the out-
door season, more than a half inch
higher than the Maize and Blue
top vaulter Bob Appleman.
Illinois also figures to score in
the mile relay, and the shot put.
Their mile relay team has an out-
side chance of taking top honors.

CLINE TOPS IN RBI's:
Eaddy Leads Diamondmen at Bat

1

By ED SALEM
Although he was hit on the head
by a pitched ball in mid-season,
Don addystill was Michigan's
leading hitter.
The senior third baseman, play-
ing in all but one of the Wolver-
ines 30 games, batted .324 while
knocking in 25 runs, and hitting
three home runs. His bat seemed
to lack its familiar power, how-
ever, as he garnered just six ex-
tra base hits, compared to 15
last year.

over .300 was Bruce Fox with a

.303 mark. The speedy centerfield-
er led the team in stolen bases with
18 and hits with 36.
One of the more surprising bat-1
ting feats of the year was turned
in by sophomore Ken Tippery. Al-
though he batted but .244, the sec-
ond baseman batted in 26 runs.
Tippery, it will be recalled, pushed
Frank Ronan, last year's starter,
off the regular team, but Ronan
turned out to be one of the Wol-
verines' most valuable utility men.
The most improved batter on the
squad undoubtedly was newly-
elected captan, Moby Benedict.
Benedict, who hit for a meager .155
last spring, finished this year with
a .290 average.
Captain Dan Cline proved to be
a slight disappointment this year,

ment finals played Monday,
Dick MacKenzie defeated Dick
Hartwig in tennis, Francis Le-
Mire downed Corney Sippel inj
paddleball, and Rod Grambeau
defeated Bill Wolski in faculty
paddleball.
as his average fell from over .300
last year to a still reslpectable .283
this season. However, he led the
team in runs-batted-in with30.
Reliable Pinch-Hitters
Coach Ray Fisher found that
he had reliable pinch-hitters this
year, as pitcher-outfielder Bill
Thurston and first baseman-out- j
fielder Tony Branoff both hit over
.300.

story. In his 801/3 innings pitched,
