NCAA Net Title
IN CONFERENCE GOLF:
Balanced Field Aids Badgers
By PAUL BORMAN
k Cross the bridge when you come
That has been the philosophy of
Michigan's tennis team this sea-
son. So far it has been very suc-
cessful. This season the squad ex-
tended its dual meet winning
streak to 43 straight, longest of
any current collegiate team, and
has repeated for the third straight
time as the Big Ten champion.
However, the biggest bridge is
yet to come. This will be the NCAA
Tennis Meet at Salt Lake City
next month. In the entire history
of the meet, a Big Ten team has
never emerged victorious.
Best Net Squad
Coach Bill Murphy rates this
year's team as the best squad he
has had since he began coaching
the Michigan netters in 1949.
Many Big Ten coaches go alongl
with Murphy in praising the many
assets of this year's team.
The last time that a Conference
tennis team equalled or bettered
the Wolverines' 8-1 win in the Big
Ten Meet was in 1939 when the
University of Chicago's squad
emerged as a 9-0 victor.
Pacing the Chicago team were
two brothers, Chet and Bill Mur-
phy - the same Bill Murphy who
currently coaches the Wolverines.
The Wolverines have a lot to do
if they are to establish themselves
as the nation's top tennis team,
Michigan will also benefit by
someone else's misfortune. Miami,
Southern California and UCLA,
but the four netters who will trav-
el to Salt Lake City - Barry Mac-
Kay, Mark Jaffe, Dick Potter and
Jon Erickson - have shown that
they belong with the nation's .best.
three of the nation's collegiate
tennis powers will be absent from
the meet because they were put
on proaation by the NCAA.
Next Year's Prospects
Next fall's practice will find the
team seriously cut into by gradu-
ation. MacKay, Potter, Jaffe, Jen-
sen at sixth singles and Cohen
who was an alternate will all be
Coach Murphy is hoping that
he will be able to find suitable re-
placements in the freshman ranks
to team with Jon Erickson, John
Harris and George Korol.

It was anybody's meet, and Wis-
consin was the team that took
advantage of the fact.
That was the picture at the
Big Ten Golf Meet last weekend.
Six teams went into the meet with
a chance to win, and the Badgers
came out victorious.
Season play indicated that Pur-1

the potential to win the big meet,;
on any given day.
Trail by Nine
However, Friday and Saturday
were both Wisconsin's days. They
trailed Ohio State by nine strokes
at the end of Friday's 36 holes.
But they weren't satisfied with
second, and on Saturday they shot
what Michigan coach Bert Kat-
zenmeyer called "very outstanding
golf," and they moved into the
"The way those Wisconsin golf-
ers played, they certainly deserved
to win. The weather wasn't good,
but it didn't seem to effect them."
There was some rain on Satur-
day, but Katzenmeyer states that
this was an advantage. "The
greens were very fast, and the rain
helped to slow the ball so that the
boys could putt effectively."
However, after the rain stopped
around noon, the wind came up.
Katzenmeyer said that "the coun-
try is too flat 'to break the wind,
and the afternoon was really
treacherous for golf."
Three of the Michigan men shot
very well, with John Law and Fred
Micklow drawing great praise from
Katzenmeyer. Both of them finish-
ed in the top ten in the Confer-
ence Capt. Steve Uzelac also drew
the coach's praise for a "good,
However, Katzenmeyer wasn't
pleased with the scores of John
Schubeck and Stan Kwasiborski.
Schubeck, who shot a 298 last
year to place fourth in the Big
Ten, was much higher last week-
end with a 309.
Kwasiborski didn't shoot any-
where near his usual best, and
Katzenmeyer feels that he should
have been 15 strokes lower.
"If these two men had played
the game that they are capable
of," Katzenmeyer s t a t e s, "we
might have grabbed the crown. We
shot about the same as we have
all season-no better, no worse.
There wasn't the concentrated
effort that is necessary for a
.. .wins as player and coach"
Canham Tentative Plans
To Send Five to Nationals
Following a surprise third-place
finish in the Big Ten meet, track
coach Don Canham is tentatively
planning to send five Wolverines
to compete in the NCAA meet,
June 14 and 15 in Houston, Tex.
Canham definitely states that

On The Move?
CHICAGO (P)-The National
League yesterday approved the
tentative plans of the Brooklyn
Dodgers and New York Giants
to move to California cities.
The choice now rests with
the two ball clubs, and if they
decide in favor of it, the move
may be made at any time.
In addition they lead the Con-
ference in hits with 18, and were
one-two in RBI's' with Tippery
bringing home 14 and Boros 12.
Tippery was also the home run
leader with five.
They led the regulars at the

while Boros had an even .400.

With this column I complete my third year of writing
for Philip Morris.
It has been my custom in the final column of each
year to forego any attempts at humor, because you, dear
readers, have had your 'funnybones so frozen by the cold
wind of impending final exams that it is futile to try .td
get a laugh out of you; and because in this last column
of the year we are saying goodbye, and goodbyes are
occasions for sweet solemnity, not slapdash foolery.
Today my heart is full. I am grateful, first of all, to
the Philip Morris Company who make this column pos-
sible. They have given me a completely free hand in the
choice of subject matter; they have not tampered in any
way with my copy; they have been unfailingly courteous
and helpful. I wish to take this occasion to extend heart-
felt thanks to the makers of Philip Morris for their most
touching kindness, and to notify them that if we renew
our association for another year, I shall require a sub-
stantial increase in salary.
Second, I should like to tender my thanks to you,
dear readers. A writer's life is not an easy one. There
are an appalling number of hazards-a drought of ideas,
for one; catching your necktie in the roller of your type-
writer, for another-and when a writer is blessed, as I
have been, with an audience as alert, as bright, as intelli-
gent as you, dear readers, then he must take his hat in
his hand and his necktie out of the typewriter and humbly

Finally, I wish to thank the tobacconists of America
who make it possible for us to buy our Philip Morris
Cigarettes by the pack. If there were no tobacconists,
we should have to buy our Philip Morrises direct from
the factory in boxcar lots. This would present grave
storage problems to those of us who live in dormitories
and other substandard dwellings.
I hope, by the way, that you have been to your tobac-
conist's lately and bought some Philip Morris Cigarettes.
I have been trying to beguile you into smoking Philip
Morris Cigarettes by means of what advertising men
call the "soft sell." Indeed, I have occasionally gone
beyond the soft sell into the "limp" or "'flabby" sell. I
hope my pulpy merchandising has had its effect, for here
is an enchanting cigarette, pure, natural pleasure, a joy,
a jewel, a haven to the storm-tossed, a bower to the weary.
And in addition to being a haven, a bower, and all like
that, Philip Morris is a boon to the absent minded. No
matter which end you light, you're right I
