'M' Seeks 36th Win in Row;
MacKay Still Out of Lineup'

By DON DRESCHER
The Michigan tennis s q u a d
travels to Kalamazoo this after-
noon, where it will face the Bron-
cos of Western Michigan Univer-
sity in a last exhibition match be-
fore beginning the Big Ten season.
A The Broncos were the last team
to defeat the Wolverines back on
May 12, 1954. The netters have
Cnce gone unbeaten to amass a re-
cord of 35 consecutive dual meet
victories.
Western, perennially, a strong
team ies not fared too well in
recent showings against Michigan.
'M' Winners Last Year
In lest season's encounter the
Wolverine's defeated the Broncos,
9-0. Barry Mac Kay led the netters
with an easy victory over West-
ern's number one man, Chuck
Donnelly, 6-3,,6-1.
Not quite so easy a time was
had by Michigan's Dick Potter.
After losing the first set, 6-0, to
Danny Telder, he surged back to
edge Telder in the next two sets,
6-4. 6-4.
Connelly graduated but Telder
will be in action against the Wolv-
erines today.
Challenge Round Ended
4 The Wolverines finally com-
pleted their challenge rounds for
this year's team, Tuesday. The
completion had been delayed con-
siderably, due to the harsh spring
weather which forced the squad
to play indoors until after vaca-
tion:
In the final match for the fifth
singles position, Jon Erickson, a
6'6" sensational sophomore toppled
senior Dale Jensen, 6-3, 6-1.
Jensen, who occupied the fifth
slot last year will drop down and
play the sixth and final starting
position.
MacKay Still Absent
Michigan's first singles star,
MacKay, will be absent from to-
day's meet. This will shift all the
positions up one notch and put
sophomore George Korol in the
sixth position.
Commenting on the numerous
absences from practices and meets
throughout the pre-season train-

ing for varied reasons, Coach Bill
Murphy stated that he was anxious
to get the team together to see
what they look like.
Action Returns Here Friday
The Big Ten Champions will re-
turn home Friday to take on
Northwestern in their opening Big
Ten Meet. This will take place at
2 p.m. on the Varsity Tennis
Courts.
MacKay will return to the line-
up for this meet. It may well prove
to be the toughest battle the squad
will have before the Big Ten Meet
in Evanston at the end of this
month.
Closing on this weekend's ac-
tion will be Saturday's home meet
with Purdue.
These contests will offer Michi-
gan tennis fans ideal opportunities
to view one of the nation's top
collegiate tennis squads.

JOLTING JAFFE-Mark Jaffe, number three singles man on the
Michigan team, will move up to the number two spot against
Western Michigan due to the absence of Barry MacKay. Jaffe was
edged out of the regular number two spot by Dick Potter Tuesday
in the challenge round, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

Phi Delts,
Sig Eps
in in I-M
By RAY BERNREUTER
In an important "A" softball in
I-M action, Sigma Phi Epsilon
scored a 4-1 victory over Alpha
Tau Omega.
With the score tied 1-1, the Sig
Eps scored twice on a short fly
ball to right field. The bases were
loaded ane as the man on third
broke for the plate, the throw to
home got by the catcher allowing
a second man to score also.
Cal Atwood pitched for the Sig
Bps Ernest Richman scored ATO's
only run in the first inning after
being hit by a pitched ball.
Five Runs in Second
Phi Delta Theta scored all five
of its runs in the second inning to
whip Tau Delta Phi 5-2. Among
the five runs was a home run by
Randy Tarrier.
Seven walks and eight runs in
the first inning gave Alpha Delta
Phi a good lead over Theta Chi.
Theta Chi came back though and
cut that lead. The final score was
14-13 in favor of AD Phi after a
exciting last inning.
Larry Weiss pitched a fine one-
hitter against Zeta Beta Tau to
give Phi Sigma Delta an 8-0 vic-
tory. The Phi Sigma Delts gave
Weiss a big lead by scoring seven
of its runs in the first inning.
Ebert Homers
Jim Ebert's home run helped
Tau Kappa Epsilon beat Trigon
10-3. In another game, Anthony
Efremoff homered to lead Chi Phi
to an 8-5 triumph over Phi Sigma
Kappa. Sigma Alpha Epsilon's
Mike Fitch also hit a four bagger
to help SAE beat Beta Theta Pi
7-5. Pitcher John Angood homeredI
for his own cause as Delta Chi outi
played Acacia 15-6.
Chi Psi, who had protested af
game played earlier this week
against Zeta Psi, failed to file an
official protest in the required 24
hours and therefore loses to Zeta
Psi 10-8.

By AL JONES
Revenge will be the keynote
when the Michigan golf squad
travels to Lafayette, Ind., tomor-
row to prepare for Saturday's
three-team meet with Purdue and
Ohio State.
C o a c h Bert Katzenmeyer's
Wolverine linksters lost to both
of these teams in the quadrangular
meet at Columbus, Ohio, last
weekend, while all three swamped
a weak Indiana squad.
Helped along by good weather
all week, which has made practice
conditions perfect, Katzenmeyer is
hoping for a better showing from
his golfers this week.
Squad Off Form
Many of the Wolverines shot
far off their best at Columbus, and
if they can hit their peak by this
weekend, a complete reversal
could occur at Lafayette Saturday.
One factor which will limit the
Wolverines will be the absence of

.i

two lettermen from the, lineup.
First-man John Schubeck will be
in Minneapolis for a pre-law exam,!
and Stan Kwasiborski will also
miss the meet.
They will be replaced by two
promising sophomores, Pat Keefe
and Ray Lovell. Keefe looked very
good at the beginning of the sea-
son, and shot low rounds on the
southern trip. Both played against
Detroit, and turned in sound per-
formances.
Purdue Toughest Team
Purdue, which swept the meet
at Columbus, downing the other
three teams, will be the toughest
competition. They will be playing
on their home course this week,
and it will take top performances
by all the Wolverines to upset the
Boilermakers.
Ohio State, however, could be a
different story. They had the
advantage of their home course
at Columbus, but will be on even
terms this Saturday.
This weekend's meet stands as
the second of a series of four
battles between Purdue, Ohio State
and Michigan, the teams which
appear to be in solid contention
for the Big Ten link championship.
Purdue won the first round last

weekend, with Ohio State finish-
ing second. It appears that the
Boilermakers will triumph again
this week, unless the Buckeyes or
Wolverines turn in exceptionally
strong pereformances.
The battle this Saturday should
be between Ohio State and Michi-
gan for the runner-up spot.
However, the third meet, at Ann
Arbor, on May 11, will give the
Wolverines their best chance. They
will be playing on their home
course, with the team at full
strength. Both Purdue and Ohio
State will have to be extremely
sharp that Saturday if they wish
to stay ahead of Katzenmeyer's
squad.
The finale will come at the
Conference meet, of course, when
these three squads will have their
last, and most important, crack at
each other. This meet will come
on May 24 and 25 at Iowa City.

PITTSBURGH OP)p-First base-
man Dale Long, the toast of Pitts-
burgh last spring when he broke
home run records, Wednesday was
traded with outfielder Lee Walls
to the Chicago Cubs for first base-
man Dee Fondy and Infielder Gene
Baker.
The straight player deal between
the seventh-place Pirates and the
last-place Cubs was announced in
Brooklyn and Pittsburgh after
each Club had lost Wednesday.
Pirate Manager Bobby Bragan
said, "The big man in the deal for
us was Baker."
Walls "Good Hitter"
Charley Grimm, Chicago vice
president, said Walls gives the
Cubs "a pretty good hitter, able
to play centerfield," and that Long
could furnish first base power.
Bragan said he would use the
31-year-old Baker at shortstop and
would move Dick Groat to third.
Frank Thomas and Fondy, he add-
ed, will alternate at first.
With Baker gone, Chicago man-
ager Bob Scheffing said he will
shift shortstop Ernie Banks to

I

third and would try rookie Ed
Winceniak at shortstop.
Winceniak came to the Cubs
from St. Paul where he hit .273
in the American Assn. last year.
Long Holds Record
Long, who set a major league
record last season by homering in
eight consecutive games, has failed
to hit a home run this year.
He is hitting .182 and has been'
the target of boos from Pittsburgh
fans.
Walls, 24, 6-3, 205-pounder,
camebup last year and hit .262 for
Pittsburgh.'
Baker, 31, has a .250 mark this
season with 11-for-44.
Fondy, 32, has been with the
Cubs since 1951 and has a .285
life-time average.

ning disclosure that General Duke,
favorite for the $125,000-added
Kentucky Derby, was suffering
from a foot ailment threw Derby-
town into an uproar Wednesday.

know definitely until an hour or
so before the race on Saturday."

T he dramatice disclosure at
Churchill Downs Wednesday
morning spread swiftly around the
city, already humming with pre-

Mr. Jive was being quartered.
It was immediatel.9 announced
that colt would be flown to Louis-
ville to start in the 1 %-mle 3-
Year-old classic.

After General Duke wound up a
disappiting second behind Fed-

settled down to nine starters in
America's most colorful horse
scramble.
But the Duke's injured foot
tossed a bombshell into the pc-
ture.
