idwell Takes Campus Tennis Crown
With Decisive Victory Over Klunzinger






i I

Beats Michigan State Star
6-4, 6-2 In Last Match;
First Set Is Thriller
Storming the net beind a blazing
forehand drive, John, Kidwell, win-
ner of three Michigan tennis letters,
added the All-Campus crown to his
tennis laurels yesterday with a sur-
prisingly decisive 6-4, 6-2 conquest
of Williard Klunzinger.
It was a triumph of speed and dar-
ing over sheer finesse. Klunzinger,
whose record boasts a state doubles
title as well as the captapmcy of the
Michigan State team, simply couldn't
play his usual smooth, accurate game
in the face of Kidwell's aggressive
net-rushing tactics. His passing shots
were always dangerous when he could
get his racquet on the ball, but
throughout the latter stages of the
match he just couldn't reach his
foe's amazing placements.
First Set Close
Kidwell got off to a flying start in
the opening set by breaking his op-
ponent's service and holding his own
to go into a 2-0 game lead. But Klun-
zinger came right back with beautiful
backhand passing shots down the line
'to even up the, match.
The next two games were marked
by backcourt driving duels, each man
breaking the others service to stay
abreast. Then Klunzinger came to
the net behind his own service for the
only time in the match to go to a
4-3 lead.
After that Klunzinger stuck to the
baseline and the result was the turn-
ing point of the match. Kidwell be-
gan stroking his forehand hard and
deep and following it to the net
where his crisp volleys forced Kun-
.inger into errors. Maintaining this
brand of play without a let-down,
Kidwell ran out the set.
Kidwell Unplayable'
A steadier Klunzinger took ,the
court at the beginning of the second
set to win the first game on his own
service. After that it was all Kid-
well. Hitting a deadly overhead and
volleying superbly, he completely up-
set Klunzinger's touch with his forc-
ing style.
The former State captain halted
the tide momentarily in the fourth
game by breaking through Kidwell
with some inspired lobbing to even it
up at 2-all, but Kidwell broke right
back again with burning topspin
drives to the corners that went for
From then on the new champion
was unbeatable. He ran out the next
four games by slugging his fore-
hand and charging the net where he
put the ball away with unplayable
volleys. The final point, a terrific
overhead smash that left Klunzinger
helpless, was symbolic of Kidwell's
tennis throughout the match.
Klunzinger Wins Doubles
Klunzinger salvaged some glory
from the afternoon by pairing with
Dick VanNordstrand to capture the
doubles title in a thrill-packed three
bour duel with Jim Bourquin and
Jim Porter. The final score was 6-8,
6-4, 6-3, 1-6, 6-2.
The young college team started out
well to annex the first set behind
Bourquin's acing service and Porter's
pparkling net play, but were nosed
out in the next two when Bourquin
faltered momentarily at the net.
The losers breezed through the
fourth set in decisive fashion, out-
smarting their more experienced op-
ponents in brilliant net exchanges.
But Klunzinger began smashing his
service and overhead with some of
his old time vigor to turn the tide
and sweep the final set for the

Waldner Takes
First Flight Golf
Tourney Crown
Defeats Lester Serier, 4-2,
When Opponent's Putter
Fails On Several Holes
Lester Serier was off in his putting
yesterday, and as a result Jack Wald-
ner captured the title in the first
flight golf championship in compara-
tively decisive fashion, 4-2.
Waldner and Serier entered the
finals with no odds quoted. In the
semi-finals both shot 84's, and both
play in general pretty much the same
type of game. A series of three-putt
greens, however, gave Serier a 91 yes-
terday, while Waldner took 85.
Waldner had 'two birdies, one on
the long 11th hole and one on the
18th hole, after the match had been
decided. The first birdie was made
by a beautiful chip shot from off the
green that went straight to the pin
and in.
Serier was down at the start and
never could catch up with his op-
ponent. Battling a cross-wind from
the west, both players went over par
on the difficult first hole, Waldner
taking a 6, while Serier had a 7. A
6 for Serier on the second hole put
him two-down to Waldner, who had a
par 4. From then on the two players
battled on even terms, but Serier
could not overtake the early lead.
Waldner went three-up when Se-
rier found more trouble on the fourth
hole, but this was quickly trimmed
down when he went into the trap on
the short fifth hole and came out
with a 6.
Serier brought the score to one-
down on the seventh hole with :a
bogey 5, but Waldner made it two-
up at the turn with a par 4 on the
ninth. Again Serier took a point on
the tenth, when his opponent took
mnother 6, but Waldner's birdie on
the next hole put Serier definitely
down to stay.
Serier had gone into the lead on
this hole with a beautiful approach to
within a few feet of the pin, but
Waldner's comeback stole the hole
completely away. Serier said after-
ward that this was the shot that de-
cided the match.
Waldner ended the match on the
16th holes with a hard par 4 into the
wind. Serier's long drive was carried
by the wind into the trap, and he
was down in 5.
Waldner will be a sophomore in
the engineering college next year. He
is from Detroit but is living in Ann
Arbor during his college course.

Is Eliminated
From Western
Women's Golf Meet Is
Marked By 3 Upsets
As Traung, Barrett Fall
DETROIT, Aug. 9.-(R)-It was
"Black Wednesday" at Oakland Hills
Country Club today and no fewer
than three major upsets were record-
ed as the second round of the 39th
annual Women's Western Closed Golf
Championship was completed.
Chief of the day's casualties over
the exacting, wind-sweptlayout was
Marion Miley, of Lexington, Ky.,
tournament medalist and two-time
Edith Estabrooks, young Dubuque,
Ia., star, accounted for Miss Miley's
downfall, winning 2 and 1 after be-
ing three down at the end of the first
three holes, all of which were birdied
by the Kentuckian.
Also on the sidelines tonight was
Dorothy Traung, of San Francisco,
the 1936 champion, who bowed out
to Harriet Randall, 21-year-old In-
dianapolis player, one up.
The third upset was registered by
Mrs. Tim Lowry, of Chicago, who
beat the favored Beatrice Barrett, of
Minneapolis, one up.
In the quarter-finals tomorrow in
the upper bracket, Miss Estabrooks
will play Miss Randall while Mrs.
Lowry will face Mrs. Russell Mann,
of Milwaukee. Mrs. Mann, the form-
er Lucille Robinson, won the title in
1933 and today defeated Patricia
Stephenson, of Minneapolis, two-up.
