Net Team Loses Title Bid\
THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By JOHN BARBOUR
After sweeping their dual meets
all through the season with quick,
calculated play, the .Michigan ten-
nis squad met their old faithful
nemesis at the Western Confer-
ence Tennis Finals, as for a sec-
ond time in a row Northwestern's
Wildcats came through strong in
the top singles and doubles to re-
tain the Big Ten crown.
During the 1948 season the Wol-
verines showed up well through
all their dual meets, and they hit
their peak when they upset favor-
ed Northwestern 5-4.
* * *
BUT THEN came the Confer-
ence finals at Evanston, Illinois,
home of the Wildcats, and though
the Wolverines placed Andy Paton
as Conference singles champ, and
also -took the Conference doubles
crown, they failed to meet the
depth of the Purple and White.
s, The Wildcat netmen left the courts
Again in 1949, with an even
stronger squad, Michigan surged
through the dual meet season,
piling up shutout after shutout.
Then again, as the season drew
to a close, the Northwestern
squad journeyed to Ann Arbor.
Here the story was even better
than the first time to Wolverine
rooters, as the Michigan squad
shut out Northwestern, 7-0.
THEN, AT THE semester's close
came the Conference Champion-
find, when you look back at the
dual meet records. But if you
look at the lineups, that North-
western had presented, a pos-
sible reason comes to light.
The fact that Wildcat Ted Pet-
ersen, singles champ of 1947 and
1949, didn't attend away games in
the 1949 season, and the 7-0 shut-
out posted by Michigan was one
that he missed.

THE FACT that Michigan faced
a badly depleted Northwestern
team in 1949 at the dual meet and
ran into a full strength team at
the Championships . . . further-
more, a team that knew Michi-
gan's strength, had tried it.
At the semester's close, Michigan
was losing Andy Paton, Bill Miku-
lich, Fred Otto and Gordie Naugle.
The team for 1950 would be headed
by sparkling junior Al Hetzeck
who held the number two berth for
the Wolverines through the 1949
Possibilities were that Don Mc-
Kay might be back for another
year. Dick Lincoln, and Len Brum
have both showed up well in Con-
ference play. Then from the fresh-
man ranks will be Steve Bromberg
whose game has been rapidly im-
Northwestern will be losing the
services of Ted Petersen, Ted
Hainline and Larry Daly. It's go-
ing to be another close one in
1950. Third Time's a Charm.

time, the team almost identical in

THE WOLVERINE sailors cam-
[peted in eight regattas against
mid-west competition. Michigan
piled up an outstanding record,
taking four first places, three sec-
onds and one third.
The Wolverines started off the
1949 season with the Michigan
Invitational Regatta at Whit-
more Lake. The sailors placed
third, close behind Purdue and
The following week the Michi-
gan Tars swamped the Irish of
Notre Dame in a dual meet which
was also held at Whitmore Lake.

'THE NEXT weekend the mar-

cast in the role of defending
champions. But the Purdue jinx
persisted and the Wolverines had
to be satisfied with second place.
The Maize and Blue sailors
divided forces for their next en-
gagement. One crew set sail at
Minneapolis for the Minnesota
Invitational Regatta, while an-
other lifted anchor at Lansing

One point stood'in the way of

the Wolverines never seemed to
get going and as a result finished
in seventh place.
The Eastern schools, as has
been the case ever since the re-
gatta was started thirteen years
ago, took all the honors. Yale,
Harvard, and Brown took the
win, place and show positions.
The shutting of books in June
is the signal for mostcollegesports
to call it quits for the year, but
not so with sailing.
The Wolverines assembled a
crew from their members attend-
ing Summer School and headed
north to Wisconsin for the Wiscon-
sin Invitational Regatta. ; Even
without their regular crew mem-
bers, the tars were able to wind
up the season with a convincing
win at Wisconsin.
The Sailing Club is already mak-
ing plans for next year. The offi-
cers of the Michigan fleet for
next year have already been nam-
ed. Bill Emmert has been named
commodore, Ed Bainbridge, head
instructor, Constantine Foultis,
Jr., fleet captain, and Tom Spck-
man, racing chairman.
The Wolverines have several ex-
perienced skippers and crew mem-
bers returning this fall along with
a large group of promising neo-
phytes. With this material to work
with, Michigan should be able to
equal its fine record of last year.
