Netmen Head into Season
With 31-Match Win Streak

Exhibition Slate To Open
Tomorrow at Delaware


Going into this season's play,
Michigan's tennis team boasts a
winning streak of 31 consecutive
triumphs in dual meet competition.
The netmen will officially open
this season's play April 25, against
the University of Detroit.
The team will, however, see some
other action before this meet. Bar-
ry MacKay, the squad's first
singles star, will travel to San
Juan, Puerto Rico, during spring
vacation where he will participate
in the Caribe Hilton Invitational
Coach Bill Murphy and the rest
of the team will head South to-
morrow morning and play Emory,
Georgia and Georgia Tech during
the recess
When MacKay plays in the
tournament, he will be faced by
the top amateur netters in the

world including Sammie Giamal-
va and Herb Flam of America and
Merv Rose of Australia.
Looking ahead to the coming
Big Ten court season, Coach Mur-
phy stated: "I expect that we'll
have the most trouble from Iowa
and Illinois."
Three challenges stand in the
way of enhancing the team's sta-
ture throughout the nation. One is
winning the Big Ten Meet.. An-
other would be sweeping all nine
matches of the meet, a feat which
hasn't been accomplished since
the University of Chicago, with
Murphy as a player, did it in 1939.
The third, and probably the
hardest, would be to take the
NCAA title. In tennis history, a Big
Ten team has never been able to
cop this coveted crown.

HEADING SOUTH-Barry MacKay, outstanding Michigan netter,
will travel to Puerto Rico during spring recess to compete in the
Caribe Hilton tournament. The rest of Coach Bill Murphy's squad
leaves tomorrow to engage three Georgia college teams.

FIRST HURDLE-When Michigan takes the field tomorrow for
the exhibition baseball opener at Delaware, the Wolverines will be
facing the Blue Hens' star southpaw, Dick McKelvey, who last year
posted a 3-0 record and a 0.71 earned-run average.

In spring, a young man's fancy
turns to thoughts of playing base-
ball-that is, if he's a member of
the Michigan baseball team.
The coming week's respite will
provide no letup for coach Ray
Fisher's crew since it leaves this
morning for a nine-game trip
down the Eastern seaboard.
Pre-season action will get un-
der way tomorrow afternoon when
the untried Wolverines take on
Delaware's Blue Hens at Newark,
Limited Outdoor Action
Michigan has seen extremely
limited outdoor action, even in
intra-squad games, having played
only two. Sickness and poor weath-
er have a, nounted for this.
The diamondmen, in fact, are
in "as poor conction as I've ever
seen them," said Fisher. Many are
o1 the way to recovery, but out-
fielder-pitcher John Herinstein is
still nursing a cold and flu, catch-
er Gene Snider just had some bad
teeth extracted and outfielder-
pitcher Bruce Fox has been out a
week with a bad back.
The 19-man squad will include:
Pitchers Don Poloskey, Bruce Fox, Jim
Clark, Glen Girardin, Bob Sealby, John
Herrnstein and Dean Finkbeiner;
Infielders Jim Vukovich, Gary Starr,
Ken Tippery, Ralph Hutchins, Ernie
Myers and Steve Boros;
Catchers Gene Snyder and Jim Dick-
Outfielders Al Sigman, Bill MacPhee
and Bob Ptacek; and utility man Bob
Stabrylls. ,
Fisher anticipates the use of all
these men in liberal fashion as he
attempts to get a good look at all
of them, although he emphasizes
that "Of course, we'll try to win."
Delaware has seen quite a bit
of action against other college
teams already, as have most of the
other schools on the slate, so Fish-
er doesn't expect too much. "It
takes us a couple of days just to
get our outdoor eyes," he points
The Wolverines have been work-
ing constantly in the nets at Yost

Field douse, but it obviously isn't
the same from any standpoint.
In three previous engagements
with Delaware, Michigan has lost
twice and tied once, having ab-
sorbed a 13-3 pasting last year in
the spring opener.
The Blue Hens will go with their
ace lefty. Dick McKelvey, who has
a 1-1 won-lost mark so far this
season and notched a 3-0 last year
and a 0.71 earned-run average.
Poloskey To Start
Fisher will counter with right-
hander Don Poloskey, but his
schedule from there on out is un-
decided, due to the poor shape his
moundsmen are in.
Other teams on the schedule are
the Quantico Marines (two games),
George Washington, Maryland,
Navy, Georgetown, Virginia and
Washington and Lee.
First home game of he Michi-
gan slate will be Central Michigan
on Wednesday, April 17.

Bennie Oosterbaan may have
to search for replacements for
Terry Barr, Tom Maentz, and Ron
Kramer in the coming spring foot-
ball practice but Curly Lambeau
will have no such problem.
Lambeau will have the Michigan
trio playing under him in the Col-
lege All-Star Game in Chicago,
Aug. 9, against the NFL champion
New York Giants.
This will be old hat for Barr

and Maentz who played in sev-
eral college all-star games over
the Christmas holidays. But this
will be the first chance for Kram-
er to work under pro rules and
the pro -style of play.
An interested observer, of course,
will be Coach Lyle Blackburn of
the Green Bay Packers who draft-
ed Kramer.
Originator of Packers
Interestingly enough, Lambeau
was the originator of the Pack-
ers, holding their first franchise
in 1922 and coached them until

first Michigan representatives to
the game in several years.
With the first practice session
for the trio a month after gradua-
tion, they have met some difficul-
ty finding summer jobs.
Returns to Hometown
Mike Rotunno, another of last
year's stalwarts drafted by Cleve-
land, does not have this problem.
He is going into the insurance
business in his home town of Can-
ton, Ohio, immediately after grad-
Rotunno expects to spend the
summer there until the Browns
open their camp the last week in
July in Bowling Green, Ohio.
As to the position that Paul
Brown will have him playing,
"probably linebacker" says Ro-
Clem Corona, who signed with
Philadelphia expects to tryout for
one of the Eagle offensive guard
Corona expresses the idea of all
the Wolverines who have signed
to play pro ball, "The fundament-
als are the same, but the compe-
titior is what we will have to ad-
just to."
As for the summer, he, too, is
having difficulty finding work.
While some of the boys are plan-
ning on working on some of the
short summer camp jobs, Corona
at present plans to stay in Ann
Arbor until the Eagle camp opens

As for Charlie Brooks, who was

Giants, has another year of eligi-
bility, and is expected to return to

Al Sigman, not drafted by an-
NFL club, is reported to have

the Canadian Big Four.
Barr, Maentz and Kramer will
leave together for the Evanston,

Gridders To Seek Stars' Replacements
When Spring PracticeBegins April 15

...spring is here



Finding replacements for such
players as Tom Maentz, Ron Kra-
mer, halfback Terry Barr and
other starters will pose the main
problem when Michigan opens its
spring football practice Monday,
April 15.
Under NCAA rules, 20 practice
sessions are permitted. They will
conclude Saturday, May 11, with
the annual, game-length scrim-
mage in Michigan Stadium. This
game will be open to the public
without charge.
Emphasis during the spring ses-
sion will be placed on prospective
sophomores and reserve players
from last season.

Twenty-four lettermen will re-
turn to the gridiron for the Wol-
verines in the fall, but only a rela-
tively small number are expected
to participate regularly in spring
Several lettermen will be per-
forming for Coach Ray Fisher's
baseball squad. John Herrnstein
will be pitching or roaming the
outfield, and Gene Snider, center
on the football team, will be behind
the plate catching.
In addition, Bob Ptacek and Jim
Dickey, both backfield men, will
be substituting the diamond for
the gridiron this spring.
Jim Pace, regular tailback, will

concentrate on sprinting for they
track team.
Principal problems confronting
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan and his
staff, including Chalmers "Bump"
Elliott, new backfield mentor, will
be the development of the right
halfback and end positions along
with reserve line power.
Oosterbaan sizes up the situation
by saying, "We can't help but be
weaker at the start of the season
with the loss of such players as
Maentz, Kramer, Brooks, Barr, Al
Sigman and Dick Hill and Jim
"We have a real job ahead of us
in most positions if we hope to be
in the running next fall."
