D. Squad Today

By CARL RISEMAN
Michigan's highly touted tennis
squad travels to Detroit today to
meet the University of Detroit
netters hoping to extend a 31-
game winning streak.
The meet will be played at the
West Side Tennis Club and will
start at 2 p.m.
First Match
This will be the first match of
the season forihe Wolverines net-
men and they hope to get off to
a good start against a team that
they beat last year, 9-0.
With Barry MacKay, the team's
number one player, in Houston,
Texas for the River Oaks tourna-
ment ,all the other members of
" the team will move up one notch.
Captain Dick Potter, normally
the number two player, will be
a ilia

playing in the first singles spot.
Another veteran, senior Mark
Jaffe will play in the number two
spot.
Jensen Moves Up
Junior Dale Jensen will move
up to Mark Jaffe's vacated spot
and a fast improving sophomore,
John Erickson will be playing in
the number four spot.
John Harris and sophomore
John Koral will be playing in the
fifth and sixth singles spots, re-
spectively with Dick Cohen as al-
ternate.
With MacKay absent from the
meet, the doubles team will also
be shuffled. Jaffe and Harris will
team up on the first doubles team.
Koral and Potter will compose the
second team while Erickson and
Cohen will play in the third
doubles spot.
None of these are final posi-
tions because challenges will be
held this weekend after the U-D
meet.

Big Wave
Of Water
Hits Sport
Storm Clouds Appear
For Title Fight
By The Associated Press
Rain which hit the midwest and
"washed-out" much of yesterday's
sports news did not seem to water-
down Gorge Gainford, chief stra-
tegist for ex-middleweight cham-
"Sugar" Ray Robinson.
After a physical examination by
the Illinois State Athletic Com-
mission showed Robinson and
Champion Gene Fullmer to be in
top shape for next Wednesday's
title bout, Gainford poured ques-
tions on Commission Chairman
Frank Gilmer on the type of ref-
eree who would handle the battle.
Gainford was unhappy with al-
leged rabbit-punches by Fullmer.
when he dethroned Robinson in
their Jan. 2 match in New York.
He went so far as to say, with
some acidity, that the State of
New York allows an "illegal"
punch in the ring.
Getting ready for another battle,
namely the Kentucky Derby, Bold
Ruler left his "training camp"
with; a rusty colored pony called,
of all things, Rusty, three Irish-
men, a German, and a ton of
equipment including water.
His special train car carried
four 150 pound bales of alfalfa
hay, a bale of straw, a huge basket
of dandelion greens, four 100-
pound bags of oats, a bushel of
carrots - with tops trimmed off
-and jugs of hot coffee for the
three Irishmen and the German.
The water came in five-gallon
jugs, special Arkansas Mountain
Valley water. Another 120 gallons
of the water will be delivered in
Louisville.
Rusty has a 50-gallon barrel of
plain old New York City water
the citizens drink.
Just before the train pulled out
a man scribbled in pencil on the
side of the 73-foot express car,
"Bring Home the bacon."
If any more water is needed the
owners of Bold Ruler can send to
the North Side of Chicego where
the Cubs no doubt had to drain
their dugout of perspiration and
tears after they set a new major
league record for the most walks
in one inning, nine to be exact.
In the weird fifth inning Chi-
cago pitchers allowed seven runs
on one hit and nine free passes.

Jack Adams of the Detroit Red
Wings said yesterday he is trying
to work out a deal with the Bos-

Terry Sawchuk back to the Wings.
Sawchuk left the Bruins in mid-

and sick to continue in the nets.
The Bruins suspended him, Saw-

Detroit and since then has made

Three-=Team Trade
Should the Red Wings obtain
Sawchulz whom they traded to
the Bruins two ,cars ago, it un-
doubtedly would open the way
for a three-team deal. Observers
close to the Red Wing camp be-
lieve the Wings would trade
Goalie Glenn Hall, voted a first-
team berth on the National Hock-
ey League All-Star team just an-
nouned, to the ci.jcagc Black
Hawks.
Although Hall, 25. won the Cal-
der memorial trophy in the 1955-
56 season as the league's outstand-
ing rookie and gained the All-
Star berth this year, Adams ex-
pressed dissatisfaction with his
work in the late stages of the re-
cent campaign.
Former Red Wing
Sawchuk, 27, was a member of
the Red Wings for five season.
Three times he was the Vezina
trophy winner as the league's out-
standing goalie; three times he led
the league in shutouts and in his
rookie year he was the Calder
trophy winner.
"As long as I'm running this
club," said Adams, "we'll make
any trade we feel can help the
club. After the season was over,
I listed five players we consider
'untouchable.' They are Gordie
Howe, Alex Delvecchio, Red Kelly,
Marcel Pronovost and Al Arbour.
They're still untouchable. There
are 13 others we'd consider trad-
in."

Hillman Robbins led the advance

ment with two victories yesterday.
The 25-year-old Air Force lieu-
tenant from Memphis, Tenn., won
his ragged morning second round
match 1 up from Billy Thornton
of Jupiter, Fla., then came back
impressively to shoot 2-under-par
golf in a 5 and 4 conquest of Ed
Tutwiler of Charleston, W. Va.
Another former champion, Don
Bisplinghoff of Winter Park, Fla.,
also went 20 holes to beat Dale
Morey of Indianapolis and gain a
quarterfinal meeting Thursday
morning against Robbins. Taylor's
opponent will be Don Wiland of
Phoenixville, Pa., 1 up conquer-
or of Jake Howard of Augusta,

Two-time champion Bill Camp-
bell of Huntington, W. Va., will
play Lawrence Cook, Wrightsville

Bill Hyndman of Abingdon, Pa.,
runnerup to Robbins last year, in
the other quarterfinal tests.

With rain postponing yester-
day's practice game with Eastern
Michigan, Coach Ray Fisher had
a chance to contemplate some of
his problems on the Michigan
baseball team.
Chief of these is his pitching.
Fisher distinguished himself as
an unhappy prophet Tuesday
when his m o u n d staff was
humbled by a good Western Mich-
igan team.
Pitchers Falter
Since the beginning of the sea-
son Fisher has steadfastly held
to the idea that his pitchers would
falter when they met top competi-
tion, and the Bronco game seemed
to prove him right.
Hischief concern now is the
decline of his number one man
Don Poloskey.
Poloskey returned from the
southern trip with a respectable
2.0 earned-run-average for 18 inn-
ings.
But in his last three appear-
ances he has been hit soundly and

was knocked from the box by
Notre Dame, a weak hitting club.
Another disturbing factor was
the shellacking Glen Girardin
took at the hands of Western.
After allowing only two runs in
22 innings in his first five ap-
pearancE s he seemed to claim the
role of Fisher's fireman. Western
however dampened this hope when
they clubbed him for five runs in
a two inning stint.
A further worry for Fisher has

WOLVERINE GOLF SQUAD:
Katzenmeyer Tests Sophomores

By AL JONES
Monday's 91-8/2 golf victory
over Detroit was purely an experi-
ment for Coach Bert Katzenmeyer
and his Wolverine linksters.
For his six-man team Katzen-
meyer used three sophomores, in-
cluding Ray Lovell who hadn't
played previously, and dropped
two regulars, Capt. Steve Uzelac
and Fred Micklow.
This move was made in an at-
tempt to discover how well the
sophomores could play under pres-
sure so that Katzenmeyer would be
able to judge how useful they will
^ be when the Conference schedule
rolls around.
Under these circumstances the
outcome of the meet was in ques-
tion. However, the gamble paid off,
as the sophomores came through

with 72 of the winning 9% points.
Nevertheless, Katzenmeyer was
unable to answer the big question
that has been plaguing him -
which of his eight golfers are the
best, and which will he use in
Conference play?
As was the case last season, the
Wolverine team is so well balanced
that no certain choice can be made
about personnel for the big meets.
In Monday's meet all of the Michi-
gan players shot between 74 and
80, while during the whole south-
ern trip the scores varied only
from 71 to 84.
The most perplexing thing is
that the same man is never lowest
or highest. The golfers are so bal-
anced in talent that any man may
turn in a hot round and take
medalist honors for that day.

Katzenmeyer staged a Yellow-
Blue meet yesterday afternoon in
order to help make his choice of
players for the meet this weekend
at Columbus with Ohio State, Pur-
due and Indiana, three of the top
contenders for the Big Ten crown.
Judging from the showings
Monday, Katzenmeyer was very
impressed with Lovell and veteran
Skip MacMichael, who shot sub-
par rounds except for a few bad
holes.
Stan Kwasiborski, a junior let-
terman, shot a very respectable
76, and according to Katzenmeyer
should be ready to meet Confer-
ence opponents.
