M Tennis Team
Hosts Irish Squad
Michigan Risks Long Victory Streak
Against Strong Notre Dame Netters

Golfers Face Three Strong Teams

This afternoon's home play on
the Varsity Tennis Courts should
give coach Bill Murphy a good
yardstick with which to measure
the potential of this year's squad.
Moving onto the courts to face
the Wolverines, and challenge
their 38-match winning streak,
will be a strong Notre Dame team.
The match will begin at 2 p.m.
and spectators will be in for a fine
tennis exhibition.
According to Murphy, this
should be the toughest match his
defending Big Ten Champions will
have all season.
Impressive Record
The Irish come to Ann Arbor
with an impressive 7-1 record.'
Their only loss was to tennis-
strong Kalamazoo College, who
edged them, 5-4.
i Gunning the attack for the men
from South Bend will be Max
Brown, a sensational sophomore
who has gone through his first
eight matches without a defeat.
Playing first singles, Brown also
claims fame for his defeat of
Michigan star Barry MacKay in
a pre-season tournament. Murphy
feels that Brown has a good
chance of performing this feat
Big Rematch
However, MacKay has been
smarting from that indoor loss,
and will be set to gain revenge
this afternoon. This should be one

of the sharpest, closest, and best
played matches that Michigan
fans will have a chance to see all
Lineup Changes
The Michigan singles lineup,
changed from previous matches
by challenges, finds Mark Jaffe
playing second slot behind Mac-
Kay, followed by Capt. Dick Pot-
ter, Jon Erickson, John Harris,
and Dale Jensen.
In doubles it will be MacKay
and Potter in the first slot, with
Jaffe and Erickson second, and
Harris teamed with Jensen for
All of the team will have to play
top-notch tennis this afternoon if
they expect to grab that 39th
straight win.
Canhamr Fear

Michigan sports enthusiasts will
get their second and last chance
to view the 1957 Wolverine golf
team at home tomorrow, when the
linkstershost three other top Big
Ten squads.
The meet will be a 36-hole af-
fair, with the first 18 beginning at
8 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m.
Defending Champion
Purdue, the defending Confer-
ence champions will be the big
team at the meet. They have the
medalist from last year's Big Ten
meet in Joe Campbell, plus five
other men who shoot in the 70's
The balance that the Boiler-
makers have shown thus far
makes it hard for opposing
coaches to have much hope for
heading them when the Confer-
ence finals are held at Iowa City
on May 24 and 25.
Ohio State, who along with Pur-
due has beaten the Wolverines in
two previous outings this year,
will be trying to edge Michigan
again tomorrow. Headed by
Fritz Schmidt, a sharp golfer who
beat Campbell three weeks ago at
Columbus, the Buckeyes have eked
out narrow victories over Michi-
gan both times.
Big Advantage
The advantage of the home
course, which means that the
Wolverines will be familiar with
the fairways and greens should be
a factor in helping Michigan gain
revenge over Ohio State.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer of the
Wolverines states that the main
advantage of the home course is
that "the golfer never finds him-

self in a position which he hasn't
experienced before.
"This means that he will be
sure of what club to use, and will
have confidence that he is doing
the proper thing."
Whether this advantage will be
enough to head the Boilermakers
is another question.
Spartans Victorious
Michigan State will be the'
fourth.team in the meet. Michi-
gan hasn't met them yet this
year, but from the fact that they
have the same team intact that
they fielded last year gives Kat-

zenmeyer good reason to fear
"They probably have the
strongest team in years," he
states. Whether they can compete
with the other schools inhthe Con-
ference will come to light tomor-
The main problem that faces
Katzenmeyer is that he feels his
team hasn't yet reached the po-
tential they are capable of. He is
looking for much improvement
between their performances pre-
viously, and the golf they play in
the Conference meet.

MEETS OLD RIVAL--Michigan number one tennis player, Barry
MacKay, will meet an old rival this afternoon when the Wolver-
ines host Notre Dame on the Varsity Courts. Max Brown, an Irish
sophomore, downed MacKay in an indoor tournament this winter.
s Strong Ilini Cindermen;

Mitchell, Dintelmann Lead Comeback


Join the LIGHT brigade
in Mansfield

The Illinois track team has re-
turned from the depths and will
have the Michigan cindermen
"running scared" in tomorrow's
dual meet at Champaign.
During the indoor season the Il-
lini, at one time the most feared
track power in the Conference,

Gomberg, Reeves Win


suffered a complete reversal of
form and tumbled into the mire
of last place. for the first time in
Sig Comeback
But within the space of two
short months Illinois has come
Last week, sparked by the
more than spectacular perform-
ances of dashman-broadjumper
Bob Mitchell and middle distance
man-miler Bob Dintelmann, Il-
linois took a quadrangular meet
from Ohio State, who finished
second in the indoors, Northwest-
ern and Purdue.
With that victory tucked away,
the Illini need only to avenge
themselves on Michigan and show
well in the Conference Finals, to
square themselves for their indoor
performance. Coach Don Canham,

whose Wolverines have won 23
straight dual or triangular meets,
figures Illinois will have the first
part of their job completed by
Saturday afternoon.
Two Stars
This Illini team, according to
Canham and the record book is
far from weak. They have good
over-all balance and in the Mit-
chell, Dintelmann combination
they have a potential 25 points.
Both of these men were in-
jured during the indoor season
but they have now returned to
provide the Illini with first place
strength in five events.
Mitchell, who ran a :9.7 100-yd.
dash last week, can take that
event and/or the 220-yd. dash and
should be a shoo-in victor in the
broad jump. Dintelmann can add
ten more points by winning both
the mile and the 880-yd. run.



304 South State Street

It's playoff time in the residencev
hall "B" softball league, and
Gomberg, by virtue of its 11-5 win
over Strauss yesterday, will meet
Van Tyne next week for the first
place championship.
In other playoff games, Reeves
' House advanced to the finals of
the second place championships
by nipping Michigan, 3-2. Reeves,
trailing 2-1 going into the last of
the fifth, was given five free
passes which meant the game.
Williams blasted its way to a
14-8 victory over' Taylor in the
other second place playoff.
In the professional fraternity
league Dick Courtney of Delta

Sigma Delta pitched one-hit ball,
but lost to Nu Sigma Nu, 4-3.
In other pro fraternity games,
Phi Beta Epsilon beat Phi Delta
Phi, 6-3, Phi Alpha Kappa downed
Delta Theta Pi, 11-0, Phi Epsi-
lon Kappa trounced Alpha Kappa
Kappa, 19-9, and Phi Rho Sigma
swept past Alpha Kappa Psi, 8-4.
The score of the Theta Xi-
Delta Sigma Phi I-M "A" soft-
ball game was incorrectly stated
in yesterday's Daily. The correct
score was Theta Xi 19, Delta
Sigma Phi 17.
