MEET BADGERS:
Michigan Nie To Seek
Fourth Big Ten Victory

By PAUL BORMAN
Special to The Daily
KALAMAZOO-In a dress re-
hearsal for today's opening Big
Ten Meet with Northwestern,
Michigan's tennis team slammed
Western Michigan here yesterday,
8-1.
In winning their 36th straight
meet, the squad had the pleasure
of beating the team which had
beat them last, on May 20, 1954.
Today's meet with the Wildcats
will be held at the Varsity Tennis
Courts behind the I-M Building
and will begin promptly at 2 p.m.
MacKay Plays Today
Because of Barry MacKay's ab-
sence yesterday, Coach Bill Mur-
phy moved the first five men up a
' notch and played alternate George
orel at sixth position. MacKay,
however, will be starting at first
singles today against Northwest-
ern.
Captain Dick Potter filled the
first singles slot yesterday and
started off the romp by humbling
Western Michigan's first singles
player, Danny Telder, 6-2, 6-0.
Although Telder took the first
game, Potter came back and won
the second, broke through Tel-
der's service on the third and from
then on coasted to his win.
Mark Jaffe at second singles
started by sweeping two games

from Larry Yoder. Yoder however,
came back to take two and knot
the score.
At this point Jaffe broke
through his opponent's serve and
went on to take the set and the
match, 6-2, 6-0.
Sweep First Five Matches
The next three players, Jon
Erickson, John Harris, and Dale
Jensen at third, fourth and fifth
singles respectively all had fairly
easy times with their opponents
and swept their matches.
The sixth and final singles con-
test between Michigan's George
Korol and Western's Denny Wal-
ton took two and one-half hours
to come to the Bronco's only win.
Walton finally stopped Korol,
6-2, 5-7, 7-5 to avert a shutout
for Coach Ray Sorenson's squad.
In the doubles action Erickson
and Jaffe teamed up to beat Tel-
der and Yoder, 6-4, 6-2; Jensen
and Harris edged Cliff Strong and
Jack Raffialli, 6-3, 6-4, and Potter
and Korol finally bested Jeff Way-
man and Walton, 6-4, 11-9.
The game today against the
Wildcats is expected to be the
toughest opposition the Wolver-
ine's will face outside of Notre
Dame this season.

R fle Squad To Begin
'Coll ege' Title Defense

By SI COLEMAN
With three wins already to its
credit, the Michigan baseball
squad will attempt to double this
total when it plays a three-game
weekend series with Wisconsin
and Northwestern.
Today the Wolverines will play
the Badgers in a single encounter
beginning at 3:30, and then face
the Wildcats of Northwestern to-
morrow in a doubleheader which
will start at 1:30.
Michigan coach Ray Fisher
points out that Wisconsin is a'
much strongerteam than its rec-
ord indicates. To date, the Bad-
gers have yet to win a game while
they have dropped three.
Wisconsin was the runner-up
last year in team batting and team
fielding, but after three games of
Big Ten competition, it finds it-
self in sixth place in batting and
one spot lower in team fielding.
13 Lettermen
Wisconsin has 13 lettermen,
four of them pitchers and two
that are catchers. Its leading pit-
cher, however, is James O'Toole, a
sophomore who has chalked up 12
strikeouts in only seven innings
of pitching this year.
Wayne Kelliher has been the
Badgers' catcher in their first
three games, and he is expected
to be behind the plate again today.
Northwestern finds itself in the
unique position of not having met
a Big Ten opponent yet. Its gamesE
with Minnesota and Iowa were
postponed earlier in the season.

A potentially strong pitching
staff and veteran catchers form
the basis for Northwestern's hopes
of improving on last year's fifth
place finish.
Michigan on Top
Michigan, on the other hand,
has exploded its power and leads
the Big Ten with a 3-0 record.
The Wolverines overpowered
their first three opponents, in-
cluding Galen Cisco of Ohio State,
who shared the top pitching rec-
ord in the Conference last year.
Presently, Michigan is setting
the team batting pace with an av-
erage of .362. John Herrnstein is
leading the league with .615, while
Al Sigman is sixth with .4 17.
Herrnstein, along with Don Po-
loskey, are expected to see mound
duty in the series. Glen Girardin,
who posts a 2-0 record will be
ready for relief hurling if nedes-
sary.
Bruce Fox, who has been holding
down the left field position for the
Wolverines all season may also see
action on the mound. Last year
Fox was the team's leading hurler
with two wins and one loss on his
record.

Michigan's Rifle Team will head
for Camp Perry, Ohio, today to
take part in the Second Annual
Collegiate Rifle Match sponsored
by the University of Michigan.
The match, which will be held
tomorrow and Sunday afternoons,
is the only .30 caliber collegiate
match of its kind in the country.
Among the 12 teams competing
in the event, five are expected to

give Michigan, last year's cham-
pion, the most trouble - Ohio
State, Illinois, Michigan State,
University of Kentucky and Day-
ton of Ohio.
Five Tough Teams
All five teams have good reason
to put their best efforts forward--
Illinois is right on Michigan's tail1
after finishing second to the Wol-
verines in the Big Ten last year;
Michigan State, Michigan's per-
ennial rival in all phases of ath-
letics, finished third in the Big
Ten; and the University of Ken-
tucky would like to even the score
after finishing second to the
Maize and Blue at the National
Intercollegiate held last month.
Faculty Advisor, Dr. John B.
Stetson, will be taking 13 men on
the trip:

GAGNIER SEEKS TITLE:
Four Gymnasts Enter NAAU Tourney,

I

By AL JONES
Four Michigan gymnasts will
enter their last meet of the 1956-
4 57 season today, as they vie with
the best in the country for honors
at the National AAU Meet in hCi-
cago.
SWolverine coach Newt Loken
arrived in the Windy City yester-
day with Ed Gagnier, star and
captain-elect of the squad, and
three freshmen.
Al Stall, Wolfgang Dozauer and
Nino Marion all placed high in
the Michigan AAU Meet, and al-
though only freshmen, earned the
honor of competing in the nation-
al meet.
In the state meet thy placed
one-two-three in the all-around
event, with Stall first, Marion sec-
Julian Lost
To Gridders
It was announced yesterday
that Fred Julian, top sophomore
candidate for right halfback thus
far in spring practice, will miss
the remainder of the Wolverines'
spring drills.
Julian suffered a pulled muscle
in his chest last Saturday during
scrimmage, and has been idle
ever since. He was rated by the
Michigan coaching staff as the
top right halfback on the squad,
behind veteran Mike Shatusky.
Head coach Bennie Oosterbaan
stated, "we are sorry to lose Ju-
lian at this point in practice. We
are sure that he will be okay by
fall, and he is far enough along
that the practices he will miss will
not hamper his chances to play."

ond, and Dozauer third, besides
sharing all of the individual titles
between the three of them.
Prelims Today
In the meet today, which will
consist of preliminaries, with the
finals being held tomorrow, Stall
will compete in the long horse,
Marion on the parallel bars, still
rings and long horse, and Dozauer
on the parallel bars and free ex-
ercise.
Gagnier, Big Ten champion on
the parallel bars and co-champion
in the all-around event, will en-
ter these same contests today. He
will concentrate mainly on the
parallel bars, hoping to grab the
championship.
Loken points out that this is
the toughest meet of the year, pri-
marily because not only are the
best from every college present,
but also many former collegiate
athletes who are still competing.
The four Wolverines will face
some of the toughest foes of their
careers, including the entire
United States Olympic team.
Gagnier, with Olympic and
NCAA competition behind him
this past year, will need to be in
top shape to capture a high place
in any of the events.
