Rest in Part
With Hurdler
By BILL GRANSE
The condition of injured hurd-
ler Jim Love may determine Mich-
igan's fate in the Big Ten Track
Championships this weekend.
Coach Don Canhaim had been
counting on the performance of
the Big Ten indoor low hurdles
champ to repeat in the outdoor.
meet, but Love will have to be in
top condition to beat Illinois' Wil-
lard Thomson.
Thomson Big Threat
In the Big Ten Relays a week
and a half ago, Thomson finish-
ed the 220 low hurdles in 22.9, the
season's best effort in Big Ten
r competition.
Love finished third to Thomson
in this race, but his best time is
only one tenth second slower.
Since Michigan and Illinois are
All-Campus Golf
The winners in the all-cam-
pus* golf tournament played
Tuesday were: Bob Hawkins,
79-74-153; Harry McCallum,
75-81-156; and Paul Lay, 78-
79-157.
the top contenders for the Con-
ference crown, Love's being in
top shape is important in this
individual battle.
All year, his time has been in
the neighborhood of 23 seconds.
Officially, his best time was re-
corded in this season's victory over
Penn State and Navy, when he ran
the hurdles in 23.3. He has an
unofficial mark of 23 seconds flat,
but because of the wind in that
meet, this time was not officially
recognized.
Pulled Muscle
Love sustained his injury last
weekend in the Chicago Athletic
Club meet when he pulled a leg
muscle in the high hurdles. Since
then he has only been doing light
workouts and has been giving his
injured leg heat treatments.
Despite his uncertainty as to
whether the troublesome leg will
be in good enough shape to help
take some of the pressure off
Michigan in the big meet, Love's
over-all attitude was one of en-
* couragement. "I'll do alright, but
naturally, it won't be the same as
if I had never been injured," hq
commented.

Indiana's quest for a fourth
straight Big Ten Tennis crown
may be short lived.
A sophomore-laden Michigan
squad is the favorite to beat de-
fending champions Indiana in the
Big Ten Conference meet which
begins today at Evanston, Ill.
Indiana's chances for a repeat
look slim. The Hoosiers have lost
the services of Duane Gomer, Bob
Barker, and Dick Bennett, who
played prominent roles in the last
three Championship races.
On the lighter side, however, the
Hoosiers can count on the ser-
vices of two returning champs,
Captain John Hironimus and Bob
Martin. They teamed up to cap-
ture the number one doubles
matchtin the championship battle
last year.
Seek First Crown Since 1945
The Wolverines go into the meet
with an unbeaten record in dual
meet competition during the 1955
season, and will be seeking its
first conference crown since 1945.
Coach Bill Murphy has describ-
ed this team as the best he has
ever coached, including his unde-
feated 1949 and 1950 squads which
lost out to Northwestern in the
Conference tournaments. One rea-
son for his praise of the squad is
the success of three sophomores,
Barry MacKay, Mark Jaffe, and
Dick Potter, who have captured
first, second, and third slots on
the team, respectively.
MacKay is almost a sure win
in the number one single posi-
tion, despite the fact that last
year's champion, Al Kuhn of
Northwestern, will see action in
the tournament. MacKay was un-
beaten in his season matches,
which included extended match
wins over Kuhn and Hironimus.
Excellent Chances
Several other Wolverines have
excellent chances for firsts. Al
Mann and Pete Paulus are un-
defeated in singles competition
this season, while Bob Paley has
lost only one match, that one to
Carl Dentice of Indiana who won
the number six singles crown last
year.
Jaffe and Potter have fair
chance of success in their bid for
number two and three crowns, re-
spectively. Jaffe has dropped
three matches, including one to

the Badger's Jack Vincent. Pot-
ter has lost three, two in the
Big Ten to Northwestern's Keith
Anderson and Indiana's Bob Mar-
tin.
Michigan's toughest competition
according to Coach Murphy, will
come from the teams which it has
soundly defeated. Besides Indiana,
stiff battles are expected from Il-
linois, Northwestern, and Wiscon-
son.
The number one doubles battles
should prove to be some of the
most exciting matches, with In-
diana, Illinois, and Michigan in
contention.

Strong Service Aids Potter

By PETE LEVINSON

the second inning on a double to
right field by Ed Manugin who ad-

M-m-m-m...

For YOU!

By DIANE LaBAKAS
Michigan's number three ten-
nis star, sophomore Dick Potter,
will have his work cut out for him
this weekend.
Potter, whose strong service and
fine ground strokes have given him
a 10-3 season record, will be all
out to win the third singles chani-
pionship from current titleholder
Bob Martin of Indiana in the Big

Ten Championships starting today
at Evanston, Ill.
Martin Biggest Threat
Despite a loss to Northwestern's
Keith Anderson earlier in the
year, Potter expects Martin to be
his biggest threat. Martin barely
beat him in a close three-set
match last Saturday.
Potter and Barry MacKay, whose
only loss as a team came at the
hands of Indiana, will be one of
the top favorites to win the first
doubles title, with the chief op-
position coming from Northwest-
ern's Al Kuhn and Paul Bennett.
One of the many Hamtramck
High School stars, Potter won his
first tournament at the age of 12
and was groomed as being one of
the city's top players.
After participating in a tourna-
ment almost every weekend and
practicing consistently indoors
and outdoors, Potter fulfilled
many of the big hopes set for
him by setting a record in win-
ning the state high school singles
title three consecutive times.
Before graduating from the
junior ranks in 1952, he won the
Michigan state boys' doubles
championship in 1949, 1951, and
1952. He also copped the Orange
Bowl boys' doubles title in 1950
and was ranked 16th in the na-I
tional junior boys singles and
sixth in national doubles.
