Balance Aids
'M' Golfers
At Evanston
McMasters, Micklow,
Schubeck Lead Way
". .golfers enter season with
well-balanced squad."
". . golf team shows fine over-
all balance in opener."
". . Katzenmeyer plagued by
remarkably well-balanced team."
Michigan's 1956 golf season has
suffered from an overdose of such
words during the past months.
But that's how the story goes--
over-all balance was a definite
factor in the regular season and
became prominent in the Big Ten
Meet last weekend.
9-5 Record
After ending the dual-meet sea-
son with a record of nine wins
against five defeats, golf Coach
Bert Katzenmeyer headed for the
Xorthwestern links, hoping for a
slight miracle.
In the last three meets of the
regular season, the Wolverines
" were very unimpressive and gave
Katzenmeyer good reason to worry.
However, as one of the golfers
said, "It was the over-all balance
that kept us in tle running at
Evanston." As a result, the Wol-
verines took second place in the
Conference and finished only seven
strokes behind the champion Pur-
due Boilermakers.
Michigan was the only team to
place three golfers in the top 10.
John Schubeck, who tied * for-
fourth with Ken Rodewald of
Michigan State with final scores
of 297, Bob McMasters and Fred
Micklow were in the race for indi-
vidual medalist honors.
The Northwestern links were in
fine condition for the meet and
the weather was fine-that is, the
first day of play. Rain on the
second -day gave Michigan a
chance to play in conditions that
were "just like home."
Last Title in '2
The Maize and Blue haven't
brought the golf championship
hom~e since 1952, but their second-
place finish this year is certainly
a step in the right direction and
an improvement over 1955's
fourth-place. finish.
SSince McMasters and Loeb are
the only two leaving the squad,
the key words next year could still
very well be "over-all balance."

By Taking Big Ten Title

... Conference champions

Canham Praises Entire
Squad for Performance

Coach Don Canham was bub-
bling over with praise for his
Michigan track stalwarts.
He was trying to. remember
everyone who made the trip to
Minneapolis, scene of the Wol-
verines' most recent Big Ten con-
quest, their fourth straight in-
cluding indoor and outdoor meets.
He cited Big Ron Kramer, who
high jumped and threw the.
weights, scoring in the jump as
he hefted his 220 lbs. a full 6'4"
over the crossbar.
"He got to thinking about that
letter and it spurred him on."
Canham joked. In order to win a.
letter, a Michigan track man has
to score at least a fraction of a
point in the Conference.
Stan Menees also scored in the
event, tying Kramer and a few
others for fourth at 6'4". Menees
thus scored in the Big Ten for
the fourth consecutive time. "He
always jumps well in the Big One."
Canham noted.
Everyone seemed to exert him-
self to the utmost. Geert Keil-
strup, for instance, took fourth
behind Captain Ron Wallingford
in the two mile, running a 9:33.0,
a personal mark.
Pete Gray, struggling to retain
his Conference 880 title, was lead-
ing going into the last 50 yds.
when the hot weather and recent
mumps bout both caught up with
Rob Varian didn't place in the
event, either, although he ran
the best half of his life, a very
creditable 1:55.0.
Eeles Landstrom dethroned his
teammate, Bobby Appleman, in
the pole vault, setting a new Var-

sity mark of 14'6". The blond
Finn, according ,to his coach, won
so decisively that he would have
cleared the bar had it been at
"Old Reliable," himself, Dave
Owen, came through to repeat in
the shot put, while Brendan
O'Reilly and Mark Booth, last
year's champ, each had a finger in
the high-jump pie.
Dick Flodin was runner-up in
the 220 for the second straight
year, last time to "Jet" Jim Golli-
day, Saturday to MSU's Eddie
This is nothing new to Flodin,
.the lanky junior from Canham's
old prep stamping ground, Oak
Park, Ill. He was runner-up in
the Illinois state prep 440 for two
consecutive seasons.
The tracksters must now set
their sights on the last big meet
of the year - college-wise - the
NCAA next month on the Pacific
Coast. This will be followed quick-
ly by the Olympic trials, with sev-
eral countries having a chance to.

Long Slams
No. 8 Homer
PITTSBURGH IP)-First base-
man Dale Long of the Pittsburgh
Pirates continued his almost in-
credible home run hitting last
night by blasting his eighth homer
in as many games to set a major
league record as the third-place
Pirates beat the Brooklyn Dodg-
ers, 3-2.
In other major league action, in
the American League, Detroit de-
feated Cleveland, 3-1; New York
beat Boston, 2-0; Baltimore edged
Washington in 10 innings, 6-5;
and Kansas City overcame Chi-
cago, 6-4.
In the National League, it was
Chicago 4, Cincinnati 1; Philadel-
phia 5, New York 2; and Milwau-
kee 10, St. Louis 3.

Michigan's tennis team success-
fully closed its season over the
weekend at Minnesota by copping
its second consecutive Big Ten
The Wolverines, blessed with
tremendous depth where it count-
ed, finished the meet with 61%/
points, seven in front of runnerup
Climax to Perfect Year
The win was a climax to a per-
fect season which saw the netters
compile 14 consecutive victories,
starting in April, and extend its
winning streak to 30. No team was
ever able to take more than two
games from the Wolverines during
that span.
Favored Barry MacKay, who was
unbeaten during the season, led
the Big Ten meet by dumping Al
Kuhn of Northwestern, 6-2, 6-2.
MacKay's powerful serve and ac-
curate volleys eventually proved
to be the deciding factor.
Potter Beats Dentie
Dick Potter's continued improve-
ment throughout the season earn-
ed him the number two singles
crown as he. defeated Indiana's
Carl Dentice, 6-4, 6-2.
The defeat at this point put
somewhat of a crimp into the
Hoosier's title hopes, as they had
juggled their lineup before the
meet in a desperate attempt to
overhaul the powerful Wolver-
Mark Jaffe gave the Wolverines
another victory at third singles as
he easily disposed of Purdue's As-
tor, 6-4, 6-1. It was the third
Big Ten title for Jaffe who last
year won the number two singles
and number three doubles crown.
Also undefeated during the sea-
son, sophomore John Harris came
through in fine style for the Wol-
verines as his strong ground
strokes overwhelmed Indiana's
George Fryman, 6-4, 6-2, to give
him number two singles title.
MacKay and Potter then clinch-

ed the meet, by eliminating Iowa's
team of Andrews and Nadig, 6-2,
6-2, to repeat as number one doub-
les champs.
Seniors Dale Jensen and Larry
Brown, who hold the number five
and six singles positions, respec-
tively, and comprise the Wolver-
ines' third doubles team, were
eliminatetd in the semi-finals.

What's doing
at Pratt & Whitney

The Original Wasp, the first P & W A engine - designed,
fabricated and assembled in less than seven months. Weigh-
ing under 650 pounds and officially rated at 410 hors
power, this lightweight, air-cooled radial engine was a
milestone in aviation history and set the pattern for almost
three decades of record-breaking advances.

Today's leadership . .. a
reflection of policies established
in aviation s infancy
Back in The Roaring Twenties, the magic dream pictured Ameri-
can families someday using the light personal airplane as freely as
the family car. Among the realists, however, was a handful of men
who were unshakable in their conviction that the real future of
aviation lay with bigger aircraft, higher speeds, greater ranges-
all possible only through engines of higher power and more relia-
bility than those of that era.
In the spring of 1925, six of these men of vision founded a
company in Hartford to undertake the development of a new air-
craft engine -- an air-cooled type. The year's end heralded their
first success -Pratt & Whitney Aircraft's "Wasp".
This talented group of ma continued to improve their power-
plant designs, developing engines of steadily mounting power that
operated efficiently and dependably. They contributed much to
aviation', progress -so much so that currently three-quarters of
the world's commercial airliners and many of our nation's first line
military aircraft are P & W A-powered.
Today's P & W A powerplant designs are supported by the
iery finest research facilities and equipment, and a technical staff
that is continually being strengthened. That nucleus of six men has
grown into one of the world's leading engineering organizations.
Yet to this very day, engineering achievement at Pratt & Whitney
Aircraft is guided by its founders' simple policy ... the best air-
planes can be designed only around the best engines.
World's foremost
designer and builder
of aircraft engines

The Double Wasp, an 18-cylinder, two-row piston engine
rated at 2400 horsepower for basic use. Its rating increased
by water injection to 3400 horsepower, the Double Wasp
was instrumental in turning many a military crisis into an
aerial victory in the decisive battles of World War II.

The Wasp Major, a 28-cylinder engine with pistons arranged
in four rows of seven each and a 3800-horsepower rating.
Its power and performance having never been equalled, the
Wasp Major represents the apex of the art of building
.eciprocating engines.

The 1-57 Turbojet, first jet engine in history to be officially
rated in the 10,000-pound-thrust class. In quantity produc-
tion since early 1953, the J-57 has continuously undergone
progressive development. It gives every indication of having
almost unlimited growth possibilities.
