'M' NINE REGAINS FIRST PLACE:

Up Averages

By FRED KATZ

After six games of conference
baseball action Michigan remains
perched atop the Big Ten stand-
ings, thanks to its sweep of last
Saturday's twin bill.
The Wolverines bounced back
from the 8-4 defeat Friday at the
hands of Wisconsin pitcher John
Aehl to blast Northwestern, 10-3,
and 12-5.
In Friday's game Aehl held the
league leaders in six safeties with
Big Ten Averages

five of them coming from Ken
Tippery and Steve Boros.
Finkbeiner Fine in Relief
Jim Finkbeiner in relief of
starter Don Poloskey was excel-
lent, giving up only two hits in
three innings.
In the doubleheader, Michigan
paced by Al Sigman, Jim Dickey
and Tippery, regained its bat-
ting eye. Sigman boosted his con-
ference average to .409 on four
hits in seven trys.
A sore throwing arm suffered
by catcher Gene Snider resulted
in the use of Jim Dickey in both
games, and he proved his worth.
Dickey now is the top hitter on
the team with .700._
Tippery Hitting .500
Tippery, via his weekend
splurge of 8 for 12, now is chal-
lenging for the top position in the
league with .500. He also provided
much of the power in the double
win, getting two home runs.
Big John Herrnstein turned in
a masterful performance in chalk-
ing up the win in the first game.
He allowed only three hits in his

six-inning stint before tiring.
Herrnstein's batting record how-
ever, took a big dip, although his
lone hit was a round-tripper.
Coach Ray Fisher was im-
mensely pleased with the relief
performance turned in by Jim
Clark who bailed out Glenn Girar-
din in the second inning of the

second game. Fisher called it "the
best game Jim has ever pitched
in his career."
Clark came in with a man on
base after five runs had scored,
retired the side, and proceeded to
give up only two hits and no runs
the rest of the way in the abbre-
viated contest.

Swamps Competition

lk

By CARL RISEMAN
Michigan's netmen added three
victories over the weekend to
bring the team's winning streak to
38 straight -- and a loss does not
appear on the horizon.
After having one day's rest
from the courts, the netters re-
sumed practice yesterday. The
highlight was a challenge match
between third singles player,
Mark Jaffe and secondman, Cap-
tain Dick Potter.
Holeomnb
Hits Big T en
Grant-in-Aid
Athletic Director Stu Holcomb
of Northwestern hit out today at
the Big Ten grant-in-aid plan
today.
He said that recruiting of prep
football players in the Chicago
area by major universities from
coast to coast is greatly on the
upswing this spring.
"In time," he declared, "the plan
'will kill us."~
Athletic Director H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler said last night that he did
not care to be drawn into the
controwrsy. He added that Michi-
gan has had little trouble in the
Chicago area or any other area.
He said that he could see no way.
that the aid plan would be voted
down fo rnext year.
Crisler did expect that Holcomb
would bringh up the plan at the
next conference meeting.

Jaffe defeated Potter, 6-3, 6-0,
moving up to second singles. Pot-
ter will play third singles.
The team played some spectacu-
lar tennis against their three
weekend o 0 p o n e n t s, Western
Michigan, Northwestern, and
Purdue.
Even without Barry MacKay,
Western Michigan proved to be
an easy victim for Michigan on
Thursday, 8-1.
Wildcats First Big Ten Victim
Northwestern was the victim in
Michigan's Big Ten opener. The
Wildcats, who were supposed to
furnish Michigan with its hardest
opposition of the year, fell by the
wayside, 8-1.
Despite the cold and wintry
weather on Friday afternoon, the
Northwestern meet was an excit-
ing one. Dick Potter played in the
second singles position against

sophomore Vandy Christie.
Each player had a similar style
and the volleys were long and
spirited. Potter finally won after
one and one half hours, 15-13, 7-5.
'M' Slams Purdue
Michigan slammed a helpless
Purdue squad, 9-0, with first and
second alternates, George Korol
and Dick Cohen being inserted in
the fifth and sixth positions on
Saturday.
The performance of Barry Mac-
Kay in the Northwestern and
Purdue meets was the highlight of
the weekend. The lanky senior
whipped his opponents ,in both
meets and appears to be the odds-
on-favorite for the Big Ten
Singles Title.
Today the challenge matches
resume, with fifth singles John
Harris challenging Jon Erickson
for the fourth singles spot.
