EVANSTON, ILL. - The chips
are downt and the showdown will
come this weekend for the Michi-
gan golf squad.
Today and tomorrow, the link-
Sters will compete in the Big Ten
M~eet here for the Conference
Wolverine hopes will rest on a
six man contingent made up of
Captain Bob McMasters, F r e d
Wicklow, Skip MacMichael, Steve
Uselac, John Schubeck and Henry
Michigan has been cast as one of
the three pre-meet favorites, along
with Ohio State and Purdue. How-
ever, Coach Bert Katzenmeyer is
very non-committal about his
team's chances.
In his own words, Katzenmeyer
has "never been so unsure of any-
thing in his whole life."
One thing is sure however.
Everyone on the Michigan team
will have to turn in a top perform-
ance if the Wolverines have any
chance of taking the title.
Man for man, the championship
potential is there, but that poten-
tial will have to be fulfilled if the
Wolverines are to triumph over
the other nine squads.
Michigan will probably get its
strongest opposition from I a s t
year's champions, Purdue, who hol

hold two dual meet decisions over
the Wolverines.
Campbell Leads Purdue
The Boilermakers are led by the
great Joe Campbell, defending
NCAA champion and probably the
outstanding collegiate ;golfer in
the country.
Ohio State, another strong con-
tender, will field one of the most
balanced squads in the Big Ten.
The Buckeye's strongest contend-
ers for individual honors will pro-

bably be Rick Jones, Fritz Schmidt
and Mike Mural.
Minesota, Michigan State, Wis-
consin and Northwestern will as-
sume the roles of dark horses.
The -Gophers will bring with
them a team that has compiled a,
very respectable dual meet re-
cords, while the Badgers have in
their lineup, Roger Rubendall, who
was. Big Ten champion last year.
MSU has their strongest team in
recent years, and' rate at least an
outside chance to cop top honors.
A home course advantage should
help the Wildcats, and could make
them very dangerous.
The remaining three teams, In-
diana, Iowa and Illinois have
shown very little in their dual
meet season, and do not figure to
cause any great excitement this
Last year, the Michigan aggre-
gation placed fourth in the con-
ference meet, behind Purdue, Ohio
State and Wisconsin. Uzelac led
the Wolverines, finishing fifth
with a 227.

the Wolverines will have to wait
a day before they begin the de-!
fense of the Conference crown.
All matches postponed yesterday
will be played today. It is expected
that the tournament will still con-
clude Saturday afternoon.
Since the tournament is being
played on cement courts, the Wol-
verines had been practicing their
last few days in Ann Arbor at the
Burns Park Courts. Thus the hard-
er surface of Minnesota's courts
should not be too strange to the
Feature Match
The feature match of the tour-
nament, barring early round up-
sets will be the expected clash
between Michigan's Barry Mac-
Kay and Al Kuhn of Northwestern.
Kuhn lost to MacKay in a dual
match this season 9-7, 6-4.
The Wolverine netters definite-
ly rate as the favorites in the Con-
ference meet, on the basis of their
brilliant play extending over the
last two seasons. The team has a
consecutive winning streak of 31
dual meet victories.
Michigan's biggest threat for the
title should come from either
Northwestern, Illinois or Indiana,
with Michigan State being given
an outside chance to win. How-
ever, on the basis of season's per-
formance, none rate a really good
chance to upset the Maize and

Special To The Daily
going to stop Michigan in its quest
for a second straight Big Ten
track crown here this afternoon
and tomorrow?
Iowa's strong Hawkeyes think
they have'the answer, and Michi-
gan coach Don Canham is about
to agree with them. If what the
wiry mentor says about the Wol-
verines' injuries is true, trouble
could be brewing.
In search of their fourth straight
title-indoor and -outdoor meets
included together-the potentially
untouchable Ann uArbrites could
be in for a real squabble.
Canham lists several men whose.
physical condition is doubtful.
Gray In Poor Shape
Pete Gray, who will be out to
defend his half-mile laurels, won
last year at Colvmbus, has little

chance of doing so, Canham fears.
"In the shape he's in, it may be
all he can do to get under 2:00,"
he said. Gray was hard-hit by
mumps several weeks ago.
In addition, Dick Flodin and Bob
Brown, two important dash men in
the Maize and Blue setup, are re-
covering from a strained ligament
and pulled leg muscle, respectively.
"If Brown and Flodin are hurt,
we're dead," Canham moaned.
Laird Sloan and Don Matheson,
both middle-distance performers
who figured to add to the point
totals, will also see limited action,
if any, thanks again to the leg-
muscle plague.
Mumps Fell Gluppe
I And George Gluppe, another re-
rlay man, isn't even making the
trip, so hard-hit was he by the
mumps bug.
Scheduled for this afternoon are
the broad-jump trials and the dis-
cus trials and finals among the
field events.
Running events will include
trials and semi-finials in the 220
and 440 and the 220-yd. low hurd-
les, and trials in the 880, 100 and
the 120 highs.
As in the indoor meet, won by
Michigan last March at Lansing,
Captain Ron Wallingford will be
called upon in both the mile and
two mile, and should repeat easily,
in the latter.
Other Wolverines who should re-
tain their outdoor titles are Dave
Owen in the shot and Mark Booth
in the high jump.
With the absence of Jim Golli-
dad from Northwestern's plans,
Jim Pace could rank as the man
to catch in the 109, while Eeles
Landstrom should reign in the
pole vault.

It looks as if it will be a toss up
in the Michigan-Michigan State
series thisfinal baseball weekend.
The Wolverines left for East
Lansing at 10:30 this morning
where they will clash with the
Spartans in a single game this
Michigan State will then travel
to Ferry Field to meet the Wol-
verine nine in a double header
tomorrow afternoon. Game time
is 1:30 p.m.
. All of Michigan's first place
hopes were crushed by the double
defeat at the hands of league
leading Minnesota last weekend.
The pair of one run losses made
it mathematically impossible for
the Maize and Blue squad to fin-
ish the Conference season higher
than-second place.
Michigan's second place chances
depend on a long list of "ifs."
While the Wolverines rest in a tie
for fourth place with Indiana,
with a 4-4 record opposed to the
Hoosiers 5-5 mark.
Second place Ohio State -posts a
7-3 count and third place Wiscon-
sin holds a 5-4 record.

garner two more wins than either
Ohio State or Wisconsin as the

season is wrapped up today and
This means that Michigan will
need a clean sweep of the series
with MSU in order to finish in a
possible second.
Minnesota should handle the
Buckeyes, but the Wolverines can
only hope that Iowa will split with;
