'M' Dual Win String,



Special to The Daily
SOUTH BEND-Michigan's ten-
nis team could capture only a vic-
tory in singles and another in
doubles, as its dual-match win
streak was stopped at 47 by Notre
Dame, 7-2, yesterday at South
The only Wolverine netters to
win were Bob Sassone, in third
singles, and the third doubles team
of John Wiley and George Korol.
Sassone defeated Hector Cabello,
7-5, 6-0, while Wiley and Korol
outpointed the Irish team of
Charles Stephens and Charles
Vanoncini, 6-4, 6-4.
Close Contests
Though the Irish took seven of
the nine matches, the contest was
actually much closer. There were
four matches which the Wolverines
lost in three sets.
The Notre Dame victory was
paced by Max Brown who defeated
Jon Erickson in first singles, 3-6,
6-1, 6-0. Both played aggressively,
but Brown, 17th ranked United

Tour Here
Jack Kramer will arrive in Ann
Arbor Thursday with four of the
top tennis players in the world.
They will be here to play one of
a series of professional tennis
matches, part of a cross-country
tour over the past few months.
The principal attraction is the
\ match between Pancho Gonzales
and Lew Hoad. At present, Gon-
zales has six straight wins to take
a substantial lead over his Aus-
tralian opponent.
In the second singles match
Poncho Segura will face Tony
Trabert, and then Gonzales and
Trabert will team against Se-
gura and Hoad in the doubles
The meet will be at Ann Arbor
High School at 8:00 p.m. and gen-
eral admission is $1.50, with re-
served seats $3.00.

States netter, was the steadier of
the two. .
The second singles match be-
tween Notre Dame's Ron Schoen-
berg and Wolverine captain, John
Harris, also went three sets before
Schoenberg won, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5.
Goes Three
Bill Vogt of Michigan carried
his sixth singles match to three
sets before losing to Vanoncini,
6-2, 5-7, 6-3.
The fourth three-set encounter
was the second doubles contest in
which Schoenberg and Hector
Cabello teamed to down Vogt and
Frank Fulton, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3.
In fourth and fifth singles, Ser-
gio Garza of Notre Dame over-
powered Korol, 6-0, 6-3, and his
teammate, Stevens, downed Ful-
ton, 6-2, 8-6.
Brown and Garza accounted for
Notre Dame's other victory by
defeating Harris and Erickson in
initial doubles, 7-5, 6-4.
The victory for the Irish also
makes them champions 'of the
Washington, D.C., Cherry Blossom
Festival tournament-begun dur-
ing spring vacation. The final
round of the tournament was post-
poned until yesterday because of
poor weather at the time.
Coach Not Sorry
Commenting on the loss, Coach
Bill Murphy said he wasn't espe-
cially sorry about the end of the
fabulous win streak.
"We couldn't keep winning and
maybe a loss will take some of the
pressure off the team," he com-
Harris, speaking for the team,
concurred with Murphy's feelings
and added that he felt "this year's
team is not as good as last year's
and we couldn't expect the streak
to go on forever."
Loss Beneficial.
He also fe the loss could be
beneficial if the team worked hard
this week in an effort to be up for
Friday's match with Illinois.
While cutting off the Wolver-
ines' streak, the Irish managed to
continue their own budding string
-now at 15 straight. Thirteen of
those were recorded this year.'

Even though Michigan's golfers
have not beaten any other Big
Ten team in competition so far
this season, Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer insists that "we have the
potential for doing better than our
scores indicate."
The Wolverine linksmen's scores
in last weekend's meet at Lafayette
were none too good. They aver-
aged 81 strokes per 18-hole round,
while Purdue's team averaged 76,
and Ohio State 77. As a result, the
Boilermakers and Buckeyes each
defeated Michigan, 28-8.
Western Illinois, invited by Pur-
due to take part in the meet, was
edged by the Wolverines, 16-14,
and downed by the other two
teams by large margins.
Perhaps part of Michigan's
troubles Saturday could be traced
to inexperience. Examinations pre-
vented Pat Keefe and Ray Lovell,
two of the team's three veterans,
from competing in the meet.
The other veteran, Captain Stan
Kwasiborski, led the team with

80-77-157 for 36 holes, a total
bettered or equaled" by all but one
OSU and one Purdue player.
Besides Kwasiborski's 157, Mich-
igan players carded the following
rounds: Dick Bither 76-84-160;
Chuck Blackett 81-81-162; Larry
Leach 84-79-163; Larry Mark-

man 80-84-164; and Roger Baron
"They can swing, hit and score
better than they are showing,"
said Katzenmeyer. "I can't find
out what's wrong with them.
"I don't know when they will
break out of this slump, but I

hope it's in time for the Big Ten
meet," he added. The Conference
golf meet is scheduled for May 23-
In regard to the possible out-
come of the home meets this week
with Michigan State Wednesday
and Purdue and OSU Saturday,
Katzenmeyer said, "If Michigan
doesn't play better, the results will
be the same as we've been having."
State has a good experienced
golf team, and both Purdue and
OSU now have downed Michigan
twice so far this season.

meyer described as "perfect" for

"The track conditions were
poor, the weather humid, but the
varsity's performance was en-
couraging," stated assistant track
coach Elmer Swanson in summar-
izing Saturday's triangular meet.
The Wolverines piled up an im-
pressive 79%/ winning point total,
beating Western Michigan by
thirty points and leaving Mar-
quette in the rear with a 36-point
"Western Michigan had a great
individual performer in Ira Mur-
chison," continued Swanson, "but
couldn't gain those all important
points for second, third and
fourth places."
Roger Shepler, the Bronco fa-
vorite in the broad jump only took
third, as Michigan placed first,
second and fourth in the event.
The other events followed the
same pattern, as Bronco runners
lacked the depth in their line-up
to back up their stars.
Swanson felt that Michigan's
star hurdler, Pete Stanger, turned
in good times in winning the 120-
and 220-yd. obstacle events but

said he still needs a good deal of
work before the Conference meet.
The loss of Fred Montour, to
the freshman team, put the only
damper on the afternoon per-

The junior-to-be end, however,

injury had caused him to fall be-

"We talked it over with him,"
said Coach Bennie Oosterbaan,
"and decided this way was best
for him."
Teuscher left for his hometown,
Aurora, Ill., yesterday.
The tough flanker was making
his bid for recognition at this

time last spring, when he won the
Morton Trophy, which annually
goes to the most improved player
in spring practice.
As a freshman in the fall of
1956, Teuscher weit out for prac-
tice to fill the requirement for
Wally Weber's football class, a
course designed for physical edu-
cation majors.
Great Speed
Due to his excellent speed, Web-
er converted the ex-high school
hurdler into an end. His rapid ad-
vancement stunned coaches, who
quickly figured him in their plans
for the 1957 season.
Then, last fall he was injured'
in an early-season practice, con-
fining him to limited action. He
lettered at end after catching five
passes . for 68 yards and one
touchdown (against Illinois).
Although he won't be eligible
next fall when he returns, Dr.
AlfredhCoxon, team physician,
said, "his operation proved suc-
cessful and should not hamper his
future career."
Michigan was not the only team
that suffered a loss over the
weekend. Blanche Martin, a
junior fullback, was announced
"definitely lost for the year" at
rival Michigan State's camp in
East Lansing.
The converted halfback, voted
Most Valuable Player in spring
practice, had been the sensation
of the Spartan drills.
Martin received severe torn lig-
aments in his left knee, while his
varsity teammates were being

dealt a 19-13 loss by alumni in
the annual "Old Timers" game.
Head Coach Duffy Daugherty,
disheartened at the news, said he
would move in Don Arend, a 200-
pounder, or Bob Bercich, a 190-
pounder, to fill the opening. Both
are experienced.
Don Deskins, the powerful
Michigan guard, is the only Wol-
verine regular benched with in-
juries at the time. Dr. Coxon re-
ports that his injury isn't serious,
though, and just time is needed
for it to heal.

Detroit, Mich.


Michigan's baseball team trav-
els to Detroit today for a game
with the University of Detroit.
In a game played at Ferry Field
earlier in the year, the Wolverine
nine trounced the Titans, 11-2.
The diamondmen carry an over-
all 14-5 record into the contest,
including four wins and two losses
in Big Ten play. ,
This 4-2 record has given Mich-
Three Stretch
I-M Streaks
Three teams-Reeves, Michigan
and Adams-remained unbeaten in
the residence hall 'A' softball
league after yesterday's wins.
Reeves had to come from behind
to whip Lloyd, 19-14, in an extra-
inning contest. Lloyd had scored
12 runs in the second inning to
take an early lead, but Reeves
gradually cut the margin and
finally pulled ahead, 14-12, on
Rich Robbins' three-run homer.
Lloyd fought back to tie the
score at 14-14 in the last inning,
but Reeves rallied for five runs in
the first extra stanza to put the
game on ice.
Free Passes
Michigan took advantage of 14
free passes given up by pitcher
Bob Bremer to trounce previously-
unbeaten Van Tyne, 10-4. Adams
took an early 9-1 lead and then
held off a late rallying Hayden
squad to win 14-9.
Another unbeaten team, Ander-
son, was not as fortunate, as it was
downed, 6-4, by a determined
Cooley team. Anderson carried a
4-2 lead into the fifth inning, but
Cooley put together five hits to
score four runs and pull ahead.
Key hit in the rally was a bases-
loaded double by Dave Kratze,
who also pitched a fine game for
the "Big Orange."
Hinsdale Wins
In other A' games Hinsdale
walloped Allen Rumsey, 20-4, Win-
chell edged Greene, 13-12, Taylor
beat Kelsey, 8-3, Chicago nipped
Strauss, 10-9, and Scott came
from behind to win over Wenley,
In the only two B' games play-
ed Cooley and Williams remained
unbeaten. Cooley held off a late
Gomberg4 rally to beat its rivals
for the overall I-M title, 3-2. Wil-
liams scored six- runs in the fifth

igan a first place tie with Mich-
igan State in the conference base-
ball race.
In regard to pitchers for to-
day's contests, Coach Ray Fisher
said, "I will probably use four or
five including Al Koch, Bob Seal-
by, George Weemhoff and Ron
Stabrylla to Catch
Fisher added, "I hope to play
Bob Stabrylla behind the plate
for a. few innings." This is a
necessary experiment for the
Wolverine squad because Jim
Dickey is the only catcher avail-
able since Gene Snider was ruled
Fisher was pleased by the show-
ing of some of his pitchers in Sat-
urday's doubleheader with Indi-
ana. Fisher said, "Nick Liakonis
was much faster Saturday than he
was against Michigan State a
Neek ago." The Detroit South-
eastern alumnus hurled a six-
hitter against the Hoosiers.
Receives Praise
Dean Finkbeiner, who pitched
three innings of shutout relief to
to win the other game against
[ndiana, also received some praise
from Fisher for his performance.
The senior southpaw struck out

four Hoosiers in his three-inning
However, Fisher was not pleased
with some of the shoddy fielding
displayed last weekend.
Poor fielding was a chief cause
of Friday's loss to Ohio State and
it almost led to defeat again in
the first gane Saturday. The sud-
den rash of bad fielding was a
surprise to most observers because
the team had looked very good
defensively in the MSU series a
week ago.
