Final Tennis Challenges

SOLID SECOND BASE-Captain Ken Tippery, second baseman
of the league leading Michigan baseball team, will carry some of
the responsibility for seeing that the team does not face a major
letdown in this weekend's games with Wisconsin and Northwestern.
Tippery is hitting .333 on four hits in 12 times at bat. Two of his
hits were for extra-bases, a double and a home run.

Michigan's tennis team is in the
midst of going through its chal-
lenge rounds which will deter-
mine the final positions on this
year's squad.
Yesterday's m a t c h e s found
Mark Jaffe challenging Dick Pot-
ter for the number two singles slot,
Dale Jensen and John Harris bat-
tling for the number four slot,
and Dick Cohen and George Korol
fighting for the seventh slot.
Potter Edges Jaffe
After two and one-half hours
of grueling tennis, Potter edged
Jaffe, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, to retain his
second singles slot which he held
in last year's play.
This means that Jaffe will once
again hold down the third posi-
The fourth singles spot will be
filled by means of a round-robin
match between Dale Jensen, John
Harris and Jon Erickson. In yes-
terday's matches, Harris downed
Jensen, 7-5, 6-0 to eliminate him
as a fourth singles possibility.
Harris Faces Erickson
Today Harris will have to face
sophomore Jon Erickson to de-
termine who will earn the coveted
fourth slot.
If Erickson loses to Harris he
will face Jensen for fifth singles,
whereas if Erickson wins, Harris
will take fifth because he has al-
ready beaten Jensen.
Korol Tops Cohen
Korol came from behind yes-
terday to beat Dick Cohen and
grab the seventh singles slot, 3-6,
6-2, 6-2.
To summarize the positions with
the challenges almost over, this
year's team shapes up with Barry
MacKay at first singles, Dick Pot-
ter at second and Mark Jaffe fin-

Savitt, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.
Teams With Golden
The Big Ten singles champion

play. Teamed with Grant Golden,
the National Indoors Amateur

FOR Leisure-Hour

On the first set of downs for
each team there was no scoring
despite the fact that the Blues had
the ball on the Reds five-yard line.
At this point the Reds squelched
the scoring threat by recovering
a Blue fumble.
The second time the Blues
handled the ball they drew first
blood on a one-yard plunge by
left halfback Jack Lousma.
As soon as the Reds got the ball,
they evened the score when half-
back Bill Renwick scampered 20-
yards through the Blue line.
Jim Byers put the Blues out in
front to stay on a fullback plunge
from the 10-yard stripe.
Stan Noskin who along with
John Spidel quarterbacked the
victors, threw the only touchdown
pass of the game. After an earlier
pass of his had been pilfered, he
made amends by hitting end Dave
Bowers, who was all alone, with a
30-yard TD toss.
B o w e r s further distinguished
himself in the game when a few
plays later he made the top defen-
sive play of the game. He shot
through the Red blockers to throw
quarterback Jim McPherson for
a 20-yard loss with a bruising
On the final play of the game
right half Brad Meyers made the
score 24-6 on a four-yard plunge
through the middle.
The 45 minute game which was
played exclusively from variations
of the T showed that the team
still has plenty of work ahead of
them if they expect to dominate
the Big Ten.
Aside from having one of their
passes intercepted, the Blues were
off on their timing and ball
handling as they fumbled five
times and recovered only once. The
Reds had one of their passes inter-
cepted and recovered their only

Tigers Pick
McHale GM
DETROIT (AP)-The Detroit Tig-
ers yesterday completed their
drastic front office realignment by
selecting 35-year-old John J. Mc-
Hale i as the club's new general
McHale immediately swung into
action, making a deal that will
bring outfielder Karl Olson to the
Tigers from the Boston Red Sox.
Jack Phillips, 36-year-old much-
traveled first baseman wlo had
been at rbat only once for De-
troit this year, will go to the San
Francisco Seals, a Red Sox farm
club. Earlier in the day, the Red
Sox purchased Olson, whom they
previously had owned, from the
Washington Senators.
A veteran of 16 years in the
Tiger organization, nearly half of
them behind a desk, the boyish-
looking McHale thus becomes the
youngest general manager in ma-
jor league baseball..
"I hope this will keep the front
office out of the news for a while,"
said board chairman John E. Fet-
zer at the news conference.

DR. MAGRUDER: Howdy,, folks. A funny thing hap-
pened too ne on the way to my doctorate. A mendicant
approached me and said, "Excuse me, sir, will you give
me 25 cents for a sandwich?" I replied, "Perhaps I will,
my good man. Let me see the sandwich."

piquant! How je ne sais quoi! ... But enough of badi-

Captain Smith and Miss Crimscott will play Pocahontas.

... Folks, have you tried a Philip Morris lately? Have you
treated yourself to that good natural tobacco - zestful
yet mild, hearty yet gentle, rich yet dulcet? Hmmm?
Have you?... If not, light a Philip Morris soon. Light
either end.... And now to our grim and gripping story.
Picture, if you will, a still summer night. An Indian
maid stands by a moonlit brook. Suddenly she hears a
footstep behind her. She turns ...
MIss CRIMSCOTT: Oh! John Smith! You-um startle-
um me-um!
DR. MAGRUDER: Hello, Pocahontas. What are you
doing down by the brook?
MIss CRIMsCOTT: Just washing out a few scalps. But
what-um you-um want-um?
DR. MAGRUDER: I came to see the Chief.
MIss CRIMSCOTT: You-um can't-um. Chief is leaving
for Chicago.
DR. MAGRUDER: On what track?
ANNOUNCER: And speaking of tracks, stay on the
right track with Philip Morris -the track that heads
straight for smoking pleasure, for fun, for frolic, for
sweet content.... And now back to those two cool cats,
