I-M SPORTLIGHT
by John Scochin
All-Sport Titles Decided
Although championships in the spring sports have not yet been
decided, teams have already clinched all-sport titles in three of the five
intramural divisions.
Teams in the social fraternity, residence hall and professional
fraternity competition have already sewed up I-M crowns although
the finals in three sports still remain on the calendar.
Alpha Tau Omega clinched the social fraternity crown by collect-
ing 1,650 points thus far to runnerup Sigma Alpha Epsilon's 1,534.
Even though SAE won championships in seven sports while ATO
managed to win only three titles, the new titleholders finished highly
in all the other sports to pull ahead of the two-time defending cham-
pions.
Chi Psi, Sig Eps in Softball Finals
Chi Psi and Sigma Phi Epsilon will square off for the "A" soft-
ball crown this week while Sigma Alpha Mu and Phi Gamma Delta
are in the finals of the "B" playoffs. Alpha Sigma Phi reached the
finals in the horseshoe tournament. Defending champion Alpha Kappa
Lambda will face the winner of the ATO and Delta Upsilon match
for the other final berth.
Tennis is still in the semi-final stage with Sigma Nu, the quarter-
final conquerer of last year's champion, SAM, meeting Theta Xi, and
Alpha Delta Phisquaring off against Chi Phi in the other bracket.
It's another winning year for Gomberg. The Big Reds earned
their second straight residence hall championship by taking an in-
surmountable 1,906 to 1,883 lead over Huber with only the baseball
playoffs remaining on the schedule.
Huber Wins in Tennis
In the tennis finals this week Huber edged Michigan 2-1 while
Wenley took first place in horseshoes by beating Gomberg 2-1. It will
be Michigan vs. Gomberg in the "B" softball finals with Huber and
Winchell going at it in the "A" tilt.
The professional fraternity champion will once again be Delta
Sigma Delta. The Delts hold a commanding L091 to 917 lead over Psi
Omega with the finals in the three spring sports still to be played.
Psi Omega, seeking to solidify its second place position, will face
Phi Alpha Kappa in the softball finals. Delta Sigma Delta will seek
to add another championship to its list when it goes against Phi Rho
Sigma in tennis. Psi O proved to be the best in horseshoes by upend
ing Phi Delta Epsilon 2-1 in the title match.,
Two Team Race Among the Independents
It will be a race right down to the wire for the independent
crown. Both Nakamura, the defneding champion, and Evans Scholars
are staging a close race for first place in the final standings.
In two of the sports, just completed, the two front runners took
turns beating each other. Evans whitewashed Nakamura 3-0 for the
horseshoe tournament title while Nakamura got revenge biy taking the
tennis crown with a 2-1 victory over Evans.
Business Adminiptration holds a slim 583 to 555 lead over mathe-
matics with the spring sports only halfway completed. Nuclear Engi-
neering occupies the third place slot with 519 points while last year's
champion, Psychology, is a distant fifth.
All Star Selections Coming Soon
The I-M department is now in the process of selecting all-star
teams for the three spring sports in the social fraternity, residence
hall and independent divisions. The, department would appreciate
having possible candidates for these individual honors mentioned to
them so that a thorough evaluation of all those deserving serious
consideration can be made.
The annual I-M athlete-of-the-year will also be selected soon and
will receive the traditional Michigan Daily trophy which has been
emblematic of intramural excellence since 1928.
To be a candidate an athlete must have participated in at least
12 I-M sports. How his team finished in each sport, his selection for
an all-star team, and his overall team play are some of the categories
used in the yearly evaluation. Robert Melder of Beta Theta Phi was
last year's winner, but the Betas' suspension from I-M sports for
cheating gives .him little chance of repeating.

Looking for a success story?
You won't have to go far. Try
Dave Roebuck, number one right-
handed starter on Michigan's
baseball team.
In this, his first year with the
squad, Roebuck has only proceed-
ed to become the winningest pitch-
er of 'em all.
Ohio Boy
Roebuck is a 6'1", 195 lb. junior
hailing from Bryan, Ohio. This is
his first year of eligibility in the
Big Ten, after transferring from
Ohio's Wheaton College.
And Wheaton was never like
this . . .
Roebuck lost his first start down
in Arizona, then proceeded to de-
molish seven straight foes before
bowing to Wisconsin last Satur-
day. Included in this string were
five consecutive conference vic-
tories in as many appearances,
and a classy 2.70 Big Ten earned
run avreage. His ERA for the en-
tire season is 3.34.
Roebuck's five league wins tie
him for the conference crown in
that department with Illinois'
Tom 'Fletcher and Doug Mills. His
seven season wins are tops on the
Michigan staff.
The husky, good-natured
moundsman has this formula for
disposing of enemy batsmen: "On
the days when my curve ball is
working, it's my best pitch," he
said, "and it's just about all I
throw. Other times I have to go
with the fast one, and when that
isn't working too well, I make
sure to keep it low and inside."
But not often out of the strike
zone, as his average of about three
walks per game will attest.
Varies Speeds
Roebuck's upsurge hasn't exact-
ly come without effort. "This year
I've been working, on changing
speeds on my curve ball," he re-
marked. "This is more effective
for me than trying out a new
pitch, like a slider or knuckler.
Coach (Don) Lund has also been
trying to get me to throw a little
Giardello Denied
New York License
NEW YORK (W) - Joey Giar-
dello, fourth ranking middleweight
contender from Philadelphia, has
been denied a license to box in
New York State.
The latest bulletin of the State
Athletic Commission, received yes-
terday, listed the rejection of Gi-
ardello's application.

more with my body and a little
less with my arm. Using my arm
feels better, but I get more poise
and durability if I put my back
and shoulders behind the ball."
The modest flinger places a
large part of his success at the
hands of the double play coInbina-
tion behind him. "It's a great feel-
ing to have (Dick) Honig and
(Joe) Jones around to take care
of ground balls," he noted. "This
way there's no pressure on you to
strike out every batter when there
are men on base."

And the future? Roebuck will
probably pass up playing in South
Dakota this summer in order to
earn enough money to attend med-
ical school in 1963. "It would take
a pretty attractive pro ball offer
to make me quit school," he said.
"Besides, the new major league
bonus rule makes the possibilities
of getting a bonus rather small."
Under the new regulation, once
a team releases a bonus player
from the parent club, he is subject
to draft by any other club.

Dave Cambell, Harvey Chapman,
and Fisher started the inning. One
run had scored and the bases were
loaded when Bronco Coach Charlie
Maher called in Gene Cooley to
relieve.
Joe Jones greeted the newcomer
with a singlewhich drove Camp-
bell and Chapman across the
plate. Fisher scored the fourth run
of the inning on an error by short-
stop Fred Michalski.
The Wolverines wreen't able to
touch Cooley in the next three
innings. But when Cooley was lift-
ed for a pinch hitter in the sev-
enth, Palmateer became the third
Bronco pitcher. In the eighth,
Chapman walked, Fisher was safe
on an error, and both scored on
Jones' triple to right field.
Another
Another triple accounted for the
Wolverine run in the second in-
ning. Campbell led off the inning
with a single and Chapman drove
him in with the three-base hit.
Larsonstruck out Fisher and
Jones and then retired Newman
on a pop-up to leave Chapman on
third.
Jones and Newman singled to
start the game. After Larson had
gotten the next two batters out,
Denny Spalla knocked the two
runners in with a solid single.
Offensive'
Western got off to a roaring
start in the first inning when Pre-
dovic doubled, advanced to second
on a wild pitch, and scored on
Michalski's sacrifice fly. Mike

Gatza rounded the bases with a
pass to first from Fisher, Fisher's'
second wild pitch which allowed
him to reach second, and Dave
Kwiatowski's double.

HOUSTON (AP) -- Fred Hutch-
inson had a message for Warren
Giles, National League president,
after the Cincinnati manager was
ejected from the game with the
Houston Colts.,
"Tell your dad he has the worst
umpires in baseball," Hutchinson
told Bill Giles, publicity director
for the Colts.
Bill Giles, son of the leaguej
president, had telephoned the Cin-
cinnati clubhouse from the pressI
box to get Hutchinson's expansionj
of the dispute with Mel Steiner,
the plate umpire.X
The dispute began when Pete
Whisenant, Cincinnati coach, pro-
tested Steiner's calling eight
straight balls that walked the first
two Colts to face Joe Jay, the Red-
leg pitcher.
Steiner ejected Whisenant but
the coach refused to leave. This
prolonged the 18-minute dispute
and led to both Whisenant and
Hutchinson being ejected.,
The remainder of the game was
played under protest but Cincin-

nati won, 5-0, behind Jay's six-
hit performance.
CINCINNATI (P) - Slugger Er-
nie Banks of the Chicago Cubs
was knocked unconscious by a
ninth-inning pitch by righthander
Moe Drabowsky of Cincinnati last
night.
Banks, 31, was taken from the
field on a stretcher and after ex-
amination in the Cubs dressing
room was sent to Christ Hospital
for x-rays.
A team spokesman said it ap-
peared Banks was hit just below
his protective helmet.
