Back for the Day
BARRY MACKAY, freshly home from the Davis Cup and other
Down-Under battles, paid a visit to his alma mater yesterday
with a dual purpose in mind - to see old friends and to do a little
brushing up on the hardwood surface of the I- Building courts.
Rated by the recent but now "retired" captain of the U.S. Davis
Cup Team Bill Talbert as the brightest star in this country's future
Cup hopes, MacKay has taken to full time playing. This explains the
hardwood practice preparation for the Queen City Invitational at Buf-
falo today and tomorrow.
From there the former Michigan standout has a busy schedule.
He goes to the National Indoor Tournament in New York Feb. 19-23,
to Pittsburgh the first two days of March, and then for a swing
through South America, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean. The first of
April will find MacKay back in the U.S. for some southern tourna-
ments and then it's across the At-
lantic to Italy April 20, through
the European circuit and then to
Wimbledon by the last week in
June. Throughout these travels
he gets paid 20 dollars a day for
expenses plus transportation. Not
a bad deal at all, but you have to
be one of the top amateurs in the
country to qualify.
MacKay came up yesterday
from his home in Dayton, Ohio,
and was immersed in all sorts of
activity from the time he arrived
until he left. Lunch in Royal Oak,
and then an afternoon of volley-
ing with Michigan's practicing
tennis team, a short press con-
ference, much posing for pic-
tures, and at the end a radio in-
terview. So goes the life of the
--Daily-Harold Gassenheimer celebrity.
BARRY MACKAY . MacKay's rise from the local to
...local boy makes good the national.tennis limelight was
as spectacular as it was unexpect-
ed. He had gone on tour with the Davis Cup team but no one expected
he would play in the actual tournament. He was only along for the
experience. The story of the more or less emergency insertion of Mac-
Kay into the internationally famous Australian-American tennis duel
is now old, but the memory of his surprising showing in the vastly
more experienced competition inspires a major U.S. Davis Cup hope
for this year. MacKay says Dinny Pgils, former member of Jack
Kramer's professional entourage, was: of especially great help to
him in the ten days of intense practice he put in before his first
Davis Cup match.
When questioned on the replacement of long time Davis Cup
Captain Talbert by Percy Jones, MacKay replied that he thought
Talbert to be a very good coach and that he was surprised when the
w mentor was dropped. He added, however, that Jones is very close to,
Jack Kramer and that the chances are good the amateurs may have
an opportunity to work out regularly with the professionals. This
would be a situation which MacKay says he would enjoy consider-
"The crowd at the Davis Cup Match was very polite and they
certainly know their tennis," related MacKay. He added, however,
that he felt they would have been much less polite had the fate of
the Cup been in greater danger.
A point of interest is that during his freshman year at Michigan
MacKay ,was seriously thinking of giving up tennis as his interest
in the sport was waning. During the next summer, however, he did
a lot of playing inthe East and his interest returned. His three years;
here as first- singles player capped with the NCAA title speak for
themselves, and he gives the majority of the credit for what he has
learned about the game to Michigan Coach Bill Murphy.
Greatly Improved..
AiL THE TOURNAMENT experience plus the day to day playing
has greatly increased MacKay's confidence and has made him
a steadier player. He also has become used to the grass surface, has
developed a stronger serve, and he says he's hitting harder than he
used to. He's in excellent condition, well tanned, and all who seem
to be in the know think he should steadily improve.
He's not yet infallible, however. He got into a series of games
with former Big Ten Champion Andy Payton yesterday and after
Payton had gained a 2-0 advantage Murphy quipped "I guess they
sent the wrong man to Australia." But a quip was all it was. MacKay
is beginning to look, and to be treated like a champion of note.

Sole possession of fifth place in
the WIHL will be at stake tonight
as the Michigan hockey team
travels to East Lansing to take on
Michigan State in the first of a
two-game series.
The second game will be here
tomorrow evening at the Coliseum
Per igo
Michigan's chances of remaining
in Big Ten basketball title conten-
tion may well depend on whether
the Wolverines can display accur-
ate outcourt shooting in tomor-
row's contest at Ohio State and
Monday's Michigan State game
Although the Michigan forward
line of M. C. Burton, Pete Tillot-
son, and George Lee can hit from
outside as well as inside, the prin-
cipal outcourt shooting attack de-
volves upon starting guards junior
Jack Lewis and Terry Miller, who
is the only sophomore on the first
Serves as Playmaker
In his first Big Ten season, Mill-
er has proved a valuable asset to
Coach Bill Perigo's cagers as a
playmaker and as an outside
shooting threat.
For example, in the Ohio State
game here it was primarily Miller
who opened up the Buckeyes' de-
fense with his long-range accu-
And in the recent defeat at Min-
nesota, Miller and Lewis, who each
take 50 jump shots before prac-
tice each day, combined for 52 per
cent accuracy, while the rest of
the team manged only 21 per cent.
Exceptional Jumping Ability
Miller may be termed the Con-
ference's tallest six-foot player be-
cause of his exceptional jumping
This allows him to get away his
jump shots without having them
blocked, and also enables him to
"dunk" the ball on drive-in shots.
Perigo characterizes Miller. as
an "outstanding team man," a re-
quisite for guards, who act as
"quarterbacks" in setting up the
team's offensive plays.
"It's tough for a soph to break
into the Big Ten style of play,"
says Perigo. Although Miller has
the most trouble on defense, "he's
been working hard *on it, and will
improve," adds the Michigan

and tickets will go on sale this
Both squads are currently tied
for fifth place and if one can
emerge with a sweep of the series,
it will gain a definite hold on the
slot since only four league games
will remain.
Gourley to Miss Game
Only Don Gourley will be miss-
ing from the Wolverine lineup in
tonight's game, while the Spar-
tan's will be without the services
of its top left wing, Dick Hamilton
and another wingman in Bill Mac-
Both starred in the January 8
game when the Spartan's ended
Michigan's 35-yr. ice supremacy
over them.
Top scorers on the State team
to watch will be Ross Parke and
Joe Polano who rank seventh
and eighth in WIHL scoring re-
Michigan's hottest prospect will
be sophomore Bob White whose
three goal outburst against Min-
nesota's All-American goalie Jack
McCartan paved the way to the
Wolverines victory last Saturday.
Although neither team has a
chance to make the playoffs, both
could possibly finish as high as
third place. That spot is currently
co-occupied by Minnesota and
Tonight's hockey game at
East Lansing will be broadcast
over WUOM starting at 7:57
North Dakota, both of whom are
two points ahead of the fifth place
Also being eyed by Michigan
and State is the McNaughton Tro-
phy which is given to the best
collegiate hockey team in the
Hoad Tops

The I-M game, which is played
with reckless abandon and an ex-
cessive amount of body contact
usually reminds one of a football
game, and last night it had an
added flavor of the gridiron as
seven members of Michigan's
varsity took to the court in In-
dependent League action,
Four of these players, John
Herrnstein, Jared Bushong, Gary
Prahst and Dick Ketteman played
for the Buckeyes who swamped
the Fighting 514th 71-31. High
scorer for the Buckeyes was Monte
Bullard with 17 points.
' Others who saw action were Jim
Pace and Willie Smith as mem-
bers of the Meat Choppers, who
decimated the Rodents, 32-16.
hEnd Dale Keller's 21 points led
the Seven Dwarfs to a 35-29 vic-
tory over Owen Co-op.

Rangy Pete Stanger, Michigan's
best hurdler in years, has found
competition pushing him into a
"bridesmaid" role in the young
track season, and the trend will
probably continue.
The speedy Canadian, who al-
ready established himself by push-
ing opponents to records in two
star-filled meets this year, will be
cast in an underdog role again
tomorrow when the Wolverines
contest Ohio State and Illinois at
Champaign. '
Stanger will match his talents;
against Olympic 400-meter hurdle
winner Glenn Davis. The Buckeye

had the Wolverine at his heels last
week in the Michigan State Relays
when he set Relay and Jenison
Fieldhouse marks in both hurdle
Paces Jones to Record
Stanger previously turned in ex-
cellent times behind Eastern Mich-
igan's Hayes Jones, one of the
world's top-ranked hurdlers, in
the Michigan AAU. He was only
one-tenth second off Jones' clock-
ings, which tied AAU and Yost
Field House bests.
He won the Canadian Olympic
high hurdle tryouts in 1956, but,
didn't make the trip due to the
association's lack of funds.
