Lep 880, Mile Titlist,
Elected Track Captain

Ergas Leps, Big Ten titlist in the
880-yd. and mile run, was elected
captain of the Michigan track
team yesterday.
The Canadian star, noted for his
powerful finishing "kick," has de-
veloped an important role for him-
self-he has been in the Big Ten
finals since his sophomore year
and has compiled a long winning
record.t
In the outdoor championship
that year, Leps won the mile, a
title which he does not intend to
relinquish, and took fourth in the
880, as well as running on the
Michigan relay teams. This year
he won both the mile and the 800
in .both the indoor and outdoor
championships.

"He was good as a freshman,
even outstanding," stated track
coach Don Canham.
Canham believes that Leps, an
education major, may stay on for
his masters and continue running
until the next Olympics. "Middle
distance runners improve with age
until they're about 28," the track
mentor says. "He ran a 1:49.6 in
the Canadian Olympic trials, and
I think he can bring that down
appreciably. Just look how far he's
gone since last year."
"One thing is pretty sure: he'll
be another in a long line of great
Michigan captains," Canham con-
cluded.

roll out, and score when Honig
threw at DeLamielleure's after
fielding Dale Norris' ground ball.
Michigan almost got the run
back in the fourth when Freehan
sent Heffron sprawling into the
left center field fence to catch his
fly ball..
Broke String
Newman broke Faul's string of
17 consecutive outs when he led
off the seventh with a Texas league
double down the right field line.
A wild pitch moved him to third,
where he scored on Freehan's sac-
rifice fly to center.
As it turned out that was the
end 'of the line for the Wolverines.
They loaded the bases in the
eighth on two walks and an error,
but DeLamielleure grounded to
third to end the threat.
Leading off the seventh, Bearcat
second baseman Paul Fleming
tripled over Spalla's head in center
but was tagged out by Merullo
when he overslid third base.
Cronin bounced out third to first
to lead off the hightmarish tenth,
but Fricke beat out a neat bunt
between Joyce and DeLamielleure
for a single. Joyce walked Wolf,
but when Newman fielded Norris'
single on one bounce in right and
made a perfect throw to Freehan

to cut down Fricke at the plate,
it looked like Joyce might escape
unscathed again.
But then Mike LaBurtis sent his
ground ball past a diving Merulio
at third only to have Honig come
up with it and throw past De-
Lamielleure, allowing Wolf and
Norris to score.
The crowd stopped at the exits
in the bottom of the tenth, when
after two were out, Newman col-
lected his third hit-a single to
left-bringing Freehan to bat.
The Big Ten's leading hitter
promptly hit one out of the park--
but it was foul by about ten feet.
After working the count to 3-2,
Faul made him his fourteenth
strikeout victim with a high fast
ball that sent everybody packing.
Today, Don Lund will send soph-
omore lefthander Fritz Fisher to
the hill in an attempt to keep the
Wolverines kicking in the double
elimination tournament. The loser
of this game will be eliminated.
Western Wins
In the first game yesterday,
Western Michigan's unbeaten Bill
Orlieb stretched his season record
to 9-0 when he throttled Detroit
on three hits for a 3-1 victory. The
loser was Dave DeBusschere, who
yielded only five hits-including a
sixth-inning homer to Charlie
Dodge.

201 S. MAIN at Washington

By BOB BENSON
The I-M schedule for the 1960-
61 season is just about over, and
many individual champions have
been crowned.
And although all the I-M tourn-
aments have not ended yet, the
over-all (section) champions have
clinched their respective titles.
In the social fraternity ranks
Sigma Alpha Epsilon has com-
piled the highest total score over
the past year. Gomberg captured
the residence hall crown as they
outlasted Kelsey and Huber in the
late spring months. The Electrical
Engineers walked off with the fac-
ulty IM tournament, and China
led the International center.

The big surprise of the year was
Delta Sigma Delta's capturing of
the professional fraternity title.
The dentists beat out the heavily
favored doctors of Nu Sigma Nu
by just fourteen points. Nu Sigma
Nu has held the title for the last
six years, and for a total of eleven
of the last fourteen years.
In the catagory of individual
sports titles this spring, only seven
have been clinched thus far.
In professional fraternities, Del-
ta Sigma blelta captured the
horseshoe and tennis titles, Phi
Alpha Kappa walked away with
the softball crown, anct Nu Sigma.
Nu won the golf tourney.
Win Golf
For the residence halls, Gom-
berg won the golf title. Kelsey
took the horseshoe competition,
and Huber dominated the tennis.
The winner of the independent
title Was the Nakarmura Co-ops.
Both the A' and 1' softball
competition for the residence halls
and social fraternities are in-
complete. The only winners to
eminate from these tournaments
at the present time are Phi Sigma
Delta which captured the frater-
nity 'B' title, and Huber house
which won the residence hall 'A'
crown.
