whole . contest and earned Fish-
er's stamp of approval.
The first Quantico game was
somewhat of a disappointment,
however. Michigan held a four run
lead' going into the eighth inning,
but a series of fielding misplays,
mostly misjudged flyballs and a
fluffed double play, cost them the
game, 9-8.
The Wolverines overpowered a
rather weak Georgetown team, 11-
1. The scheduled contest with
George Washington University was
rained out.
Prepare for Season'
Actually, the southern trip was
to prepare the team for the rest
of its rugged schedule. Today's
contest with Central Michigan is
only the first of 23 games remain-
ing against top-flight northern
opponents.
This has been done in some
spots and not in others according
to Fisher. The pitching still wor-
ries him. From the seven games,
he picked out two pitchers, Pol-
oskey and Bill Thurston, who he
thinks. are good enough for the
coming competition. He is still
looking for a good third.

He infield appears strong. New-
comers Steve Boros at third and
Bob Sealby at first did a com-
mendable job on the trip. Both
hit well. In fact Fisher thinks
Boros will develop into one of the
best third basemen in the Confer-
ence. "Maybe not right away," he
added, "but he has three years."
Veterans Moby Benedict and
Ken Tippery played up to par al-
though their hitting was weak.
"Defensively we were weak on
flyballs, said Fisher. "We messed
up on quite a few, both in judging
them and in calling them between
the fielders."
As to future predictions from
what he has seen, Fisher can only
say that he needs another pitcher
to be very strong. According to re-
ports from the South, where all
the Big Ten teams have been play-
ing, the Conference looks pretty
strong this year. Therefore Fisher
doesn't want to get optimistic.

By AL WINKELSTEIN
"As indicated by their showing
in the spring trip, the Michigan
golfers will enter the regular sea=
son with an extremely well bal-
anced squad."
This was the conclusion of Coach
Bert Katzenmeyer, following the
linksters' annual journey to the
South during spring vacation.
The squad appears to be very
well rounded. On the basis of two
practice meets, and several prac-
tice rounds, it seems that all the
players will be very closely bunched
in scoring all season. No one fig-
ures to be very far above or below
the rest.
The southern trip featured
matches agailist the North Caro-
lina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue
Devils. The Blue Devils were press-
ed all the way by the Wolverines
but managed to squeeze out a 17-13
victory.
North Carolina with one of the
top squads in the country, and led
by three par-breaking perform-
ances, easily downed the Maize
and Blue by a 222 to 72 count.
Katzenmeyer was not overly dis-
appointed with the team's per-
formance against.North Carolina.
The linksters performed quite well
considering the excellent play of
the Tar Heels and a heavy rain
which severely hampered play
throughout the meet.

Michigan was handicapped in
both of the matches by a lack of
practice, especially considering
that the southern schools have
been playing for several months,
and were, of course, familiar with
their own home courses.
The Wolverines, in addition to
their two meets, got in some much
needed practice. They played over
200 holes of golf during the seven-
day trip. This was the first time
that they could get in any con-
tinuous golf practice outdoors
without being hampered by weath-
er.
In the Duke meet, Steve Uzelac,
John Schubeck, and Bob McMas-
ters were low men for the Wol-
verines, each firing 77's. Hank Loeb
led the Maize and Blue against
North Carolina, shooting a fine 74.
North Carolina's Jim Sykes, Joe
Correll, and Aubrey Rathrock
blazed over the Chapel Hill course
in under par rounds. Sykes came
in with an excellent 69, while Cor-
rell and Rathrock did almost as
well, finishing with 70s.'

In a successful invasion of the
South over spring vacation, Michi-
gan's powerful tennis team extend-
ed its dual-match consecutive win
streak to 21.
Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech
were the Wolverines' most recgent
victims, by the convincing scores
of 7-2, and 8-1, respectively. A
scheduled match with Georgia was
cancelled due to rain.
Seven team members accompan-
ied Coach Bill Murphy on the suc-
cessful nine-day tour.
Number one singles man, Cap-
tain Barry MacKay had a rough
time with Vanderbilt's Mahan
Siler, before finally'subduing him,
6-2, 7-9, and 6-4. MacKay had an
easier time of it against Tech, as
he humbled Jack Heisel, 6-1, 6-2.

MONTREAL - The Montreal

think will be the last game of the
1956 Stanley Cup finals tonight.
The Canadiens haven't won the
trophy since 1953, but their 3-0
victory Sunday night at Detroit
gave them a 3-1 lead in the best-
of-seven series and the opportuni-
ty to end it on home ice.

Burke made up for a long winless
spell when his final round come-

the 1956 Masters title with a score
of 289.
Burke's one-stroke win over
amateur Ken Venturi, pace-setter
in the first three rounds, was the

strong in the doubles competition,
as it swept to victory in each of
the six doubles matches.
The team had but five or six
days of outside practice before the
jaunt, and Murphy's only remark
as to the shape of the squad was
"We sure have a lot of work to do
before the Conference season be-
gins."

Michigan Track Team
Excels in Quanticro Meet

U

By JOHN HILLYER
Michigan track athletes did
themselves proud Saturday at the
Quantico Marine Base in Virginia,r
despite the "Ann Arbor weather"
which formed the setting for the
Quantico Relays there.
The relay teams performed es-,
pecially well, although the times
were all held down by the five
inches of water which covered the
ground.1
The Wolverine mile relay artet
won in what Coach Don Canham
termed "the most amazing relay
performance I've seen by a Michi-
gan team since I've been coach."
Don Matheson, Laird Sloan, Bob
Rudesill and Dick Flodin covered
the distance in 3.29, Sloan holding
off the anchor challenge of Villan-
ova's great Charley Jenkins, who
ran his leg in ,:47.8.
The Maize and Blue did quite
creditably in taking the half-mile
relay. Rudesill, George Gluppe,
Flodin and Bob Brown were clock-
ed in an impressive 1:27.5.
In the two-mile relay, Michigan,
minus star half-miler Pete Gray
who stayed home with the mumps,
was runner-up, turning in a time
of 8:04.8, Georgetown hitting the
string-first in 8:03.5.
The Wolverines also placed sec-
ond Friday in the quarter-mile and
four-mile relays.
In addition to Gray, Jim Pace,
the sprinter, was also missing from
the scene. He joined another "part-
time" trackster, Ron Kramer, in
spring football practice.
Although Michigan failed to
take any firsts in the field events,
,the Wolverine entries performed
quite well, considering the condi-
tions. Eeles Landstrom, for in-
stance, took second, along with
Dave Owen, Big Ten shot-put
champion, threw the balls531434"

The Choice of
Well-Dressed Men...
The all-cotton cord needs no introduction to those who
have enjoyed their smart cool appearance and all
around utility. The Wash n' Wear . . . a skillful
blending of cotton and Dacron . . . is similar to the
cotton card in pattern, but has the added advantage
of being washable and requiring no ironing. Simply
wash it out at night, hang it up, and it is ready to
wear the next morning. Both available in our natural
shoulder model with lapped seams, hooked center vent,
and narrow proportioned trousers.
