Monday's tennis 'triumph by.
the Wolverines over a hapless
Michigan State team found the
team looking exceptionally strong
in some spots while some weak-
nesses were very apparent in oth-
ers.
Although Michigan claimed its
41st consecutive win by a 9-0
shutout, the squad came very close
to dropping some of the matches.
One of these was first singles
where Barry MacKay almost suf-

fered a fatal letup. The Big Ten
Singles Champion however, found
his senses in time to take his
match in three sets.
Potter, Jensen Almost Lose
Dick Potter and Dale Jensen
also seemed to be out of form.
Potter apparently, took too little
time to warm up, because at the
end of his first set he found him-
self behind, 6-4. He then pro-
ceeded to play an improved game
of tennis .to swamp his opponent
in the final two sets, 6-2, 6-2.
Jensen, who looked much better
at the beginning of the season

than he did against the Spartans
drudged to a prolonged victory
over his opponent, 7-5, 4-6, 8-6.
Jensen Lowers Game
Jensen.outclassed his opponent,
yet it seemed that rather than
proceed to beat the Spartan, he
slipped down and played his op-
ponent's game.
Both Jensen and Potter have
played much better than they did
Monday, and if they can bring
themselves up to playing the type
of tennis they are easily capable
of by the time the Conference
Meet roles along; they might have.
a chance to x~in.
Doubles Look Good
On the brighter side of the meet
was the play of all three doubles
teams. Net Coach Bill Murphy
commented "All of the doubles
teams. looked very good, in fact
the best that they have all sea-
son."
While the defending Big Ten
Champions have been walking
away with every Conference meet
so far this season, they will be
"facing stiff competition this week-
end when they go on a roadtrip to
Illinois and Indiana.
However, the team which will
probably give them the most
trouble in defending their cham-
pionship, Iowa, will have to wait
until the Big Ten Finals in Evan-
ston at the end of this month be-
fore putting up its challenge.

-Daily-Charles Curtiss
QUESTION MARK - Michigan's chances on taking a third
straight Big Ten tennis championship later this month will
hinge on the performances of Dale Jensen and some of the other
netters whose tennis has been very inconsistent so far this season.
I-M SOFTBALL:
TKE Wins in Playoffs

By AL JONES
King for a day! '
That was the stature Michigan's
golf team reached last Sunday,
following their triple victory over
Purdue, Ohio State and Michi-
gan State on Saturday.
But the glory didn't last, as the
Spartans gained quick revenge
Monday, handing the Wolverines
what could have been a very hu-
miliating defeat.
The only reason that it wasn't
humiliating to Coach Bert Kat-
zenmeyer and his Michigan link-
sters was the manner in which
the MSU victory was achieved.
Saturday Was Nice
Last Saturday, Michigan's golf-
ers shot a team total of 921 strokes
for the day, enough to easily de-
jfeat the Buckeyes. 20-16. the
Boilermakers, 22 1/-131/2, and the
Spartans, 24/2-11%.
At that time the Michigan
State linksters shot an extremely
poor team score of 973, each man
averaging over 80 strokes per 18
holes.k
Two days later, on Monday, that
same Spartan aggregation sur-
prised Michigan, winning the dual
meet, 26-10. This time they shot
an amazing team total of only
884 strokes, almost 100 strokes
less than they had in Saturday's
meet.
'M' Shoots Well
The reason that Katzenmeyer
isn't disappointed with his team
is quite simple. They practically
matched their winning play of
Saturday, as they compiled a team'

total of 922 strokes at East Lan-
sing.
It wasn't any letdown for Mich-
igan, but simply a fantastic up-
heaval by the Spartans.
Of course, the question that
hangs on Katzenmeyer's lips is
that concerning the Conference
meet in two weeks at Iowa City.
Following the Wolverine victories
on Saturday, it looked as if his
team had proved that they could
play among the best in the Big
Ten.
Purdue and Ohio State, teams
which had beaten the Michigan
linksters twice previously this
season, are two of the top Big Ten
golf squads, along with Wisconsin
and Iowa. Michigan proved that
they belong in the same class.
Spartans Could Cop Title
However, the newest question
is whether Michigan State isn't
equal to or better than them all.
They didn't look it in Ann Arbor
on Saturday, as they were
swamped by the other three
squads. Nevertheless, if they shoot
another 884 in Iowa City on May
24 and25, they could well earn an
undisputed Conference crown.
"That type of golf isn't found
in collegiate circles often," Kat-
zenmeyer stated. "I've only seen
the likes of it once before."
Whether the Spartans just had
a hot day, or whether they can do
it again will be answered this
Saturday in Detroit. The Michi-
gan and Michigan State squads
will be hosted by Detroit in a tri-
angular meet that should answer
Katzenmeyer's queries about the
surprising Spartans.

Mat Award
Cliff Keen, Michigan's seasoned
wrestling coach was honored early
this week by being selected to the
Helms Hall of Fame for Wrestling.
Keen, second only to baseball
coach Ray Fischer in terms of
service to the University, at 30
yrs. was one of the nine mat
coaches given this high honor.
Another of the mat mentors
chosen was Michigan State's Fen-
ly Collins, an arch rival of Keen's.
Bill Smith, Ann Arbor High's
wrestling coach also was selected
to receive this honor. Smith, how-
ever, will take his stand in the
hall of fame because of his ability
as a matman rather than a coach.
