ing style. The combined game to-

Defending Big Ten Doubles
Champions MacKay and Potter
breezed by Hentzen and Curtis,
3-0, 6-2. Potter was superb as
the Wolverine duo consistently
caught the Badgers off guard with
well-placed passing shots.
In other doubles play, Jaffe and
Harris defeated Shepherd and
Weycer, 6-1, 6-1, while Jensen and
Brown trounced Ziemer and Wing-
strom, 6-2, 6-1.
After opening defense of their
Big Ten crown with a convincing
win, this sets the stage for the
Wolverines' match with Indiana
this afternoon.
The Hoosiers are considered by
many, including Coach Bill Mur-
phy, to be the top threat to Michi-
gan's hopes of repeating as
champs. Match time is set for 2
p.m. on the Varsity courts.

Wolverines Nip Wildcats
For First Big Ten Win

T eam Weak
For Initial
Track Meet
By ED BERNREUTER
Defending Big Ten Champion
Michigan opens its abbreviated
home outdoor track season today
at 1:30 p.m. in a triangular meet
against Marquette University and
the Chicago Track Club at Ferry
Field.
Last year, the Wolverines, who
are at present somewhat weaker,
ran away with a dual meet against
the Chicago unit, 94-38. Since that
time the Windy City representa-
tives have added several more
top-flight ex-collegians to their
roster.
Kramer Returns
Ron Kramer will make a much-
needed contribution to the Wol-
'verine efforts in the field events,
as he is slated to compete in the
discus, shot put and high jump.
However, casualties weaken the
Blue somewhat. Jim Pace, who
was slated to compete in the "100
and 200, has decided, to wait an-
other week before running, since
his back, injured in football drills,
has been giving him some trouble.
Pete Gray, although strength-
ened enough after his mumps bout
to take a whirl with the mile-re-
lay foursome, will be missing from
the cast of his specialty, the 880.
And Laird Sloan, the relay man,
pulled a muscle last Saturday at
the Penn Relays to join teammate
Don Matheson in the pulled-
muscle category. These two will
also sit this one out.
Thus Coach Don Canham pre-
dicts a close contest, especially
from Chicago, which soundly de-
feated Illinois in an indoor meet.
In the low hurdles, Bob Rude-
sill, crack Wolverine middle-Nist-
ance performer, will demonstrate
his abilities at timber-topping for
the first time in Varsity competi-
tion. Rudesill will be going against
some top-flight hurdlers as he
meets Chicago's Frank Loomis and
Marquette's Glenn Goebel and Jim
Jacobson.

FACE PURDUE, BUCKEYES:
Tough TriangularMeet Set for Golfers

By ALAN WINKELSTEIN
Michigan puts its unblemished
Big Ten golf record on the line
today when they take on two of
their strongest rivals, Ohio State
and Purdue, at Lafayette.
The meet will be the second of
a three match series between these
teams. Michigan took top honors
in last week's meet, held at Col-
umbus. The third and final meet
will be played here next Satur-
day.
The linksters take into the tri-
angular meet a very enviable rec-
ord of five wins against only two
defeats. The team has been unde-
feated in Big Ten competition and
has won its last five meets.
Purdue and Ohio State are rated
as two of the most potent teams
in Big Ten golf. Purdue, lead by
National Collegiate champion, Joe
Campbell, was the winner of the
conference meet last year.
Playing on their home course,
which is always a big advantage,
Purdue figures to be a much
stronger opponent than the squad
that bowed to the Wolverines by
seven points in their first meet-
ing.

-Daily-Dick Gaskill
TRACKSTER BOB RIUDESILL, crack Wolverine middle-distance
man, will be cast in a new role in today's triangular meet with
Marquette and the Chicago Track Club. Due to Michigan's lack
of depth in the hurdles events, Rudesill will be given ample op-
portunity to demonstrate his talents today in these events.

Michigan tied it up in the third.
Snider led off by flying out but
Poloskey singled. Pienta struck out
Benedict, but the Wildcat flinger
wasn't out of hot water yet.
Forces in Run
Bruce Fox, Howard Tommelein
and Ken Tippery walked to force
in Poloskey with the tying run.
Steve Boros struck out to end the
inning.
Bath pitchers then settled down
and the tie lasted until the top of
the eighth inning, when the Wol-
verines again rallied. Benedict aid
Fox grounded out to make the in-
ning seem secure for Pienta, who
proceeded to walk Tommelein.
Tommelein Scores Clincher
On the next pitch the Wolverine
leftfielder stole second and scored
the winning run when Tippery
singled. Boros was safe on an
error, but the inning ended when
Al Sigman struck out.
Poloskey pitched his best game
of the season, as he recovered from
a slow start and found his change-
up working very well. He was able
to keep the ball away from the
batters, and allowed only two hits
after the first two innings.
Face Wisconsin Today
This victory gives Michigan a 1-1
record in the Big Ten, and a 11-5
overall season total. Northwestern
