ELLIOTT WATCHES - New backfield Coach Bump Elliott began
his duties as spring football drills opened yesterday at Ferry
Field. Here Elliott watches fullback Jim Byers take a hand off
in a dummy scrimmage.
Spring Football Begins
For 94' Hopefuls

Michigan's tennis team gave hint
that the expected depth and pow-
er of this year's squad is all there
and then some as it swept through
its annual southern tour easily,
winning all three meets.
Emory College, Georgia Tech,
and Georgia fell to the Wolver-
ines by the respective scores of
9-0, 7-2, and 7-2. To the squad's
favor is the fact that while Michi-
gan was on the outdoor courts for
the first time, these other three
schools had been participating for
several weeks.
Still another fact, which should
have been a detriment, but wasn't,
was the absence of number one
singles man, Barry MacKay, who
was taking part in a tournament
in Puerto Rico.
Everyone Moves Up
Because of MacKay's absence,
coach Bill Murphy moved each of
his other players up a notch. Dick
Potter played first, Mark Jaffe
second, Dale Jensen third, John
Erickson fourth, John Harris fifth,
and sophomore George Koral
played in the sixth singles.
This combination lost only four
matches. Potter, seeming to suffer
more than the rest from his ad-
vancement, lost twice, at Georgia
and Georgia Tech. Murphy stated
tnat Potter's competition, Lindsey
Hopkins of Georgia and Bob Nich-
ols of Georgia Tech, were excel-
lent tennis players, however.
Koral and Jensen suffered the
other two losses.
Murphy felt especially fine about
his teams' performance, mainly be-
cause it was somewhat of a sur-
fprise to him. He had not expected
to do so well without MacKay.
"Georgia and Georgia Tech had
real fine teams, too," .said Mur-
phy. "Georgia had won its last
seven meets."
The Wolverines had excellent
weather, sunny and hot with no
rain, and consequently got in three
days of practice along with the
meet play. They practiced once be-

fore the three days of competition
and twice before coming home.
The Michigan squad doesn't re-
turn to action until April 25, when
they meet the University c_ Detroit
at Detroit. They travel to Western
Michigan the following week be-
fore beginning their Conference
schedule here with Northwestern
on May 3.
Seixas Beats
Macs ay in
Puerto Rico
Over spring vacation Michigan's
tennis vagabond, Barry MacKay,
became the victim of a former
vanquished opponent, Vic Seixas,
at the Caribe-Hilton International
Invitational Tennis Tournament in
Puerto Rico.
MacKay lost out in the quarter
finals to Seixas 6-2, 6-2 and the
latter went on to win the tourney,
defeating Mervin Rose in the
Seixas had bowed to MacKay
earlier this year at the National
Indoor warmup meet at Buffalo,
a feat considered a major upset
at the time.
MacKay said last night that
Seixas was in much better form
in Puerto Rico, but that the heat
gave him trouble also. It was 85
degrees on a cork court which
-soaked up the sun and became
hot to the feet. After the cool
Michigan climate MacKay wasn't
ready for the quick temperature
change and tired physically in the
middle of the first set.
Other top players at the tourna-
ment were Bernard Bartsen and
Tom Brown from the United
States, Don Candy from Australia,
and Armando Viera, the Brazilian

Surprise Move by Heyliger
Takes Officials by Surprise

coach for "having done an out-
standing job for us; he has been

Crisler said that he will submit
Heyliger's resignation to the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics on Friday. Then, he will
scan the, field for a successor.
However, Crisler has no immediate
plans for naming Michigan's next
hockey coach.
There are several possibilities
for the vacancy, the strongest
being Al Renfrew (Heyliger's
brother-in-law and his pupil in
1949), who is presently coaching
the North Dakota hockey squad.
Other "maybes" are Marty Pave-
lich, a forward for the Detroit
Red Wings, and John Maclnnes,
Michigan Tech's ice tutor.
Boosts Popularity of Sport
The cigar-chewing Heyliger has
been credited with having pulled
the ice sport out of the minor
athletics category and his intended
move to Colorado, a thriving
hockey community, puts him in
a good position if he should decide
to take up the reins again and aid
