Golfers Meet Strong MSU Team at Home Today

The Blow Falls
THE "SPOILERS" from South Bend did it again. And 47 is still their
magic number.-
Last fall the Oklahoma Sooners were riding high with 47 con-
secutive gridiron victories, mostly over questionable opposition, and
had everyone's vote for the mythical national championship three years
running. Then on November 16 the Irish visited Norman, Okla., and
accomplished the most startling upset in recent years, 7-0.
This last Monday-Michigan's proud tennis team also claimed a
47-match victory streak, in dual-meet contests ranging back over the
last four seasons. On that fatefu.l Monday Notre Dame refused to let
another big 48 enter the records, as the home-court fans watched the
Irish snap the Wolverine streak, 7-2.
An era had ended-an era in which Michigan netters scored 47
straight dual-meet victories, won three consecutive Big Ten cham-
pionships, and annexed the 19571NCAA title.
The backbone of this fantastic tennis mcahine was a threesome
almost unmatched in collegiate tennis annals. Led by Barry MacKay,
who is now making a great name
for' himself on the national tennis
scene, and supported by Mark
Jaffe and Dick Potter, Coach Bill
Murphy had three players better
than anyone on most of the teams
he faced.
The three "tyrants" of the Con-
ference tennis world each won a
Big Ten singles championship
three years running, and MacKay
went on to beat Sammy Giam-
n*alva of Texas for the NCAA
individual title last June.
Plenty of support was in evi-
dence last spring, however, as
Murphy's charges won most of Y}
their matches, 9-0. Dale Jensen,
who also was a member of the
class of '57, and John Harris and
Jon Erickson filled out the re- BILL MURPHY
mainder of the ranks of the ho
"greatest tennis team in Michi- ... new orizons
gan's history"--a quote which any available source would be glad to
substantiate.
However, only Harris and Erickson returned this year to supple-
ment the victory caravan that rested at 43 straight when MacKay
and Co. graduated. They were able to add four more before the in-
evitable came-perhaps they should thank their lucky stars that fate
was postponed by rain at the Cherry Festival in Washington when they
were supposed to meet Notre Dame during spring vacation.
Now that the blow has fallen, a whole new horizon is open to
Murphy and his squad. The opportunity is there to start a new victory
march, and Big Ten domination is still a possibility.
It's a Different League :. .
OF COURSE, a strange phenomenon has occurred during Michigan's
three-year supremacy of the Western Conference. Michigan has
been a powerhouse, but the other schools have also been building.
Murphy is now faced with a league in which he will consider himself
lucky if his team is strongly in title contention.
Iova, Illinois, Indiana and Northwestern have all been concen-
trating on the net sport, and have come up with good teams-teams
that were strong last year when Michigan overshadowed them, but
which will be much stronger this year when the race is wide-open for
the title.
Perhaps Murphy started something when he showed the Big Ten
what good tennis players look like. He may see a lot of them in the
future, and not all in Michigan uniform. Of course, this is a healthy
situation, and one for which the Michigan mentor can well be proud.
It is quite certain that he will not be fielding a pushover himself
for a number of years to come. Erickson and Harris have continued to
win, except for the Notre Dame meet, and have found good support in
returnees Bob Sassone and George Korol and sophomores Bill Vogt,
John Wiley, Frank Fulton and Wayne Peacock. Another strong fresh-
man squad is also in the making.
OLD WIHL MEMBERS:
Discuss Reorganization

By FRED KATZ
Special to The Daily
DETROIT-A supposed breather
from the Big Ten baseball wars
turned instead into a nightmare
here yesterday when Michigan
took a 12-5 drubbing from the
University of Detroit.
This was the same team that
the Wolverines had whipped
handily three weeks ago by an
11-2 score.
Strangely enough, Michigan out-
hit the Titans, 10-9, but seven
Wolverine errors proved fatal.
A four-run outburst in the sixth
inning and six more in the seventh
cinched the game for Detroit.
Five pitchers were employed by
Coach Ray Fisher and none turn-
ed in exceptional jobs. Bob Sealby,
who started and hurled the first
three frames, proved to be the
most effective.

Michigan began as if it was out
to make it a runaway when Ernie
Myers walked and Bob Kucher
homered before anyone was out in
the first inning.
However, the Wolverines' next
run didn't come across until the
sixth,,enabling them to unlock a
2-2 tie. Detroit had knotted the
score the previous inning while
facing the wares of righthander
Al Koch.
Ultimate disaster came in the
sixth and seventh with George
Weemhoff, the eventual loser,eand
Ron Jernigan throwing, respec-
tively. While Weemhoff's trouble
was of his own making, Jernigan
had three teammate errors in
strategic places to thank for the
six runs garnered off him.
Bill Roman led Michigan in the
day's hitting with three singles in
five attempts. Ralph Hutchings,
the only other "M" batter with
more than one safety, had two for
four.
Fisher's lineup was altered
slightly giving some second-string-
ers a chance for a little more ex-,
perience. Bruce Conybeare started
his first game for Michigan, and
although he went hitless in four
tries, he hit the ball well.

By DAVE LYON
Michigan's golfers will be seek-,
ing their first victory over Big Ten
opposition this season when they
tee off against Michigan State in
a 36-hole dual match today at the
Michigan Course.
The first 18-hole round begins
Deny Lund
New Coach
A bannered sports story in a De-
troit newspaper yesterday, which
stated that Don Lund will be
Michigan's next baseball coach,
has no basis, the Michigan ath-
letic department said late yester-
day.
Lund, a nine-letter man at
Michigan in the mid-'40s, is now
a Detroit Tiger coach.
The story's only source for its
information was that it "learned
today." But the office of Athletic
Director H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler com-
mented, "It's not true. We don't
know where they got their infor-
mation."
Prof. Marcus Plant, Faculty
Representative and Secretary of
the Board in Control of Intercol-
legiate Athletics, said, "It's news
to me. However, there can be no
truth in it, since any appointment
of a coach must be approved by
the athletic board. Without that
approval, no coach could be an-
nounced.
"We have not even discussed
possibilities for a new coach at
any previous meeting," Prof.
Plant said, noting that no future
date has been set yet for a meet-
ing to hire a baseball coach.
Rumors have been circulating
throughout the spring that Lund
would receive the job. All were
denied, at time of occurrence, by
the athletic department.

at 8 a.m. today and the second
round will start at about 1 p.m.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer, still
somewhat baffled by his team's
failure to realize its potential in
meets so far this season, hopes
that home surroundings will help
improve Michigan's play.
The Wolverines, who have not
competed at home since the first
meet of the season April 23, will
be hard pressed today to improve
on their 2-5 meet record. Michi-
gan State promises to provide
formidable opposition with a well-
balanced, experienced team.

Katzenmeyer has named Cap-
tain Stan Kwasiborski to head the
six-man squad which will engage
the Spartan linksmen. The rest of
the Michigan team consists of Pat
Keefe, Larry Leach, Larry Mark-
man, Chuck Blackett, and Dick
Bither.
Michigan veteran Ray Lovell,
who was prevented by exams from
competing against Purdue and
Ohio State last weekend at La-
fayette, will be sidelined for this
meet fqr the same reason.
On Saturday the Wolverines will
climax a busy week by hosting two

good Big Ten squads, Purdue and
Ohio State. Each has downed the
Wolverines twice by good margins
in meets earlier this season.
The results of today's meet and
Saturday's triangular match will
further indicate Michigan's stand-
ing in regard to other Big Ten
teams. Victories over at least two
of the three opponents will in-
dicate the team has a chance in
the Big Ten meet May 23-24.
On the other hand, a winless
week will indicate that Michigan's
team strength ranks in the second
division of the Big Ten.

TKE Wins
I=M Contest
Tau Kappa Epsilon rallied for
four runs in the last half of the
fifth inning to give it a 9-8 deci-
sion over Zeta Psi to highlight yes-
terday's I-M social fraternity "A"
softball action.
Zeta Psi scored five runs in the
top of the fifth to take an 8-5
lead, but TKE came back with
four of its own. The winning score
was driven in by pitcher Tom
Lootens.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, powered
by five home runs, easily trounced
Phi Kappa Psi, 22-1. Bill Bernard
and Jim Shilling each homered
twice for the victors and Ron
Gregg pitched a two-hitter.
Sigma Nu edged Trigon, 9-8,
when a Trigon rally was cut short
by the one-hour 20-minute limit
on I-M games. Phi Kappa Tau
nudged Alpha Epsilon Pi, 11-9, and
Delta Chi downed Kappa Sigma,
12-11.
Correction: Van Tyne defeated
Michigan, 10-4, in I-M residence
hall softball Monday, not the re-
verse as reported in yesterday's
Daily.
