Ohio State's department of Intramur-
al athletics, under the direction of
Grant P. Ward, has announced that
they will sponsor the third annual
Western Conference fraternity bowl-
ing tournament and have announced
the opening round to be held on the
night of January 15.
Last year Michigan entries totaled
more than one fourth of the teams
which competed for the title and three
of them, Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Delta
Theta, and Phi Sigma Kappa, placed
among the first ten, the former in
second place with Delta Kappa Ep-
silon of Minnesota.
Officials in charge of the Intramural
department at Michigan are in hopes
that more than 50 teams will take
part in the tournament from here this
year. This is possible without any
inconvenience to the team rolling,
for the score made in the Big Ten
tournament will also be recorded as
the score for the annual fraternity
bowling tournament for that team.
