THE MCHIGA DAIL
Netmen Seek 22nd in Row;
Oppose. Wayne Tomorrow
By ED SALEML
The University of Detroit ten-
nis team has never beaten Michi-
gan, and Wayne has turned the
tables only once.
The Wolverines will try to add
to these streaks, as well as their
21 straight dual - match record,
when they meet Detroit at home
today and face Wayne tomorrow
on the Tartars' home courts.
Today's match with Detroit will
begin at 2:15 p.m. on the Varsity
courts. It will be the Wolverines'
first taste of competition since
their Southern trip at the begin-
ning of April.
Although they have been hamp-
ered by poor weather, and ,have
not gotten in as much practice as
Coach Bill Murphy would have
liked, the Wolverines will be fav-
ored in each of these matches.
Detroit, which lost to Michigan
State last Tuesday, 7-2, is led: by
two veterans, Earl Clark and
Sandy Kaplan, number one and
two men respectively. These two
led Detroit to a 7-2 victory over
Bowling Green in the opening
match of the season.
Detroit Coach Chet Murphy,
brother of Michigan's coach, is
fairly optimistic about his team's
chances in the Missouri Valley
Those expected to see action,
along with Clark and Kaplan, in-
clude Dick Wing and Ken Borolo,

hauser, this appears to be a year

ing; however, Don Brown, and Bob
Lowrie have had junior varsity ex-
' perience and should help.
Brown played in the Michigan
match last year and recorded the
Tartars' lone victory in their 8-1
loss to the Wolverines.
Poor weather has also cut into
Wayne's practice schedule but to
make matters worse, the team did
not take a Southern road trip this
The Tartars have not beaten
Michigan since 1946, while the
Wolverines have won six matches
in their abbreviated series.
fMichigan will have one more
tune-up match next week before
opening its Big Ten schedule. The
Wolverines play Western Michigan
here next Wednesday and then
host Wisconsin the following week-

Rain HampersI-M Action
By DON McGHEE
Intramural softball action was
greatly hindered yesterday by rain.
Only three of the 12 scheduled
tilts were played long enough to
go on the record as completed
games. Six games were postponed,
one was forfeited and two were
called in the top of the third.
Rain was falling when the games
began, and never let up for an in-
stant. Had it not been for the fact
that some games of other weeks
had already been canceled and
that the playoffs are soon to be
held, the games would have un-
doubtedly been rescheduled.,

With the Big Ten opening day
Just around the corner, a look
back to what Michigan's baseball
team has accomplished thus far
The Wolverines will face Indiana
at Ferry Field tomorrow with six
straight victories behind them.
Add to this a 5-3 record on the
Southern trip and that makes 11
wins in 14 starts.
This is impressive, but Coach
Ray Fisher does not feel as opti-
mistic as the record shows.
For one thing, Michigan has not
been playing the competition
which it will face in the Big Ten,
Only against Western Michigan
I did Fisher feel that his team was
getting the feel of average Con-
Coach Bemoans Hitting
"And we only got our usual five
or six hits off them," commented
Fisher in summing up his team's
hitting. "We hit two or three in a
row to get our runs, but that's all."
In expressing this, Fisher is ex-
pressing Michigan's hitting so far
this season. Averaging about seven
hits per game, not high considering
the generally inferior grade of
pitching faced, the Wolverines
have been staging "big" innings,
collecting most of their runs in
one- or two-frame splurges.
Another problem which Fisher
faces is pitching. He is unsure of
what he has. Don Poloskey and Bill
Thurston are figured to be two
rather reliable starters, although
Thurston was a bit wild in the
Western Michigan game.
Fisher stated at the beginning
of the season that he was looking
for another starter who would be
fairly dependable. When he came
back from the South, he was still
looking. Since. then he has ex-
perimented with the rest of his

longer before he gets the full use
of his arm again.
Fisher has also tried outfielder
Bruce Fox on the mound, and Fox
looked quite impressive, holding
Wayne to one hit. "Fox is not
terribly fast," said Fisher, "but
mnany of his pitches come in around
the knees, and he never gets flust-
ered out there, either. I think he'll
do me some good as a pitcher this

Quarterbacks Jim Van Pelt and
Bob Ptacek unlimbered their
throwing arms yesterday and foot-
ball Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
liked what he saw.
Working in a steady downpour,
both players succeded in finding
the range on several shots, with
ends Dave Bowers and Walt John-
son and halfback Mike Shatusky
their primary targets.
Long Ones Click
Especially pleasing to Ooster-
baan was that his passers were hit-
ting- on long throws, as well as
short passes over the middle. Ex-

As an Engineer in the Transmission
Section of Bell Telephone Company of
Pennsylvania, Richard M. Walsh plans
for the future.
"Our group's responsibility," says
Dick, "is to see that we have sufficient
facilities to handle present and future
needs. Telephone usage is growing every
year, and we keep up with this growth
by keeping ahead of. it.
"For instance, to meet the increasing
demand for communication circuits in
our area, we're adding 70,000 new chan-
nel miles this year alone,- at a cost of
$3,500,000.' Laying new cable will give
us 40,000 of those channel miles, and

number of long distance calls on each
pair of wires simultaneously.
"Thus, though a cable might have only
300 pairs of wires, we can, with carrier,
make it carry over 3000 telephone calls
at one time. Using carrier equipment to
get extra circuits out of cable-which is
expensive to make and lay-is an example
of how we engineer to give high-grade
service at the lowest possible cost.
"Before I graduated from college I had
interviews with twenty-eight companies.
Out of all these I chose the telephone
company because it had the most to offer
in the way of interesting work, training
and opportunity. This certainly turned
