Kappa Lambda
537 Points; Theta
Stands Second.



By Charles A. Sanford
Interfraternity athletic competi-
tion in the Intramural leagues is
nearing the end of the winter pro-.
gram as eight sports have already
been run off, with three others in,
the semi-finals, and one to be com-
pleted today. As a result the stand-
ings of the fraternities competing
is beginning to take on a compara-
tively definite form in the race for
high honors.
Alpha Kappa Lambda is well out
in front, 31 points ahead of their
nearest competitors, with a total
score of 537. Theta Chi is the run-
ner-up now with 506 points. Third
and fourth places are held by to-
tals consderably lower, Tau Kap-
pa Epsilon with 434 and Theta Xi
with 417 placing respectively for
the honors. Fifth place honors
again take a drop and are held by
Phi Kappa Psi with 361 points, while
Phi Beta Delta is sixth with 345,
and Delta Alpha Epsilon comes
seventh with 333 points total. The
last three places of the ranking ten
fraternities are held by Phi Sigma
Delta, 304 points; Delta Sigma Pi,
295; and Kappa Nu, 294 points.
Leads Professionals.
Of the professional fraternities
competing in the Intramural league
sports, Delta Sigma Pi's total of 295
points places them first, while Al-
pha Omega comes as runner-up
not so far behind with a total of
291 points. The third place honors
are held by Phi Lambda Kappa,
which is after all only seven points
behind the leader by virture of their
288. This close race keeps the in-
terest high since the final stand-
ings are at best a hazardous guess.
The leaders, Alpha Kappa Lamb-
da, have captured only one first
place and that in speedball but they
have been runners-up in four oth-
er leagues, dual swimming, water
polo, handball, and the swimming
meet. The trophy they won is a
repetition in the same event that
they carried off last year. This all-
around athletic ability as displayed
is the power that A.K.L. is counting
on to keep them at the top, or near
there, through to the final stand-
Theta Chi Is Runner-up.
The runners-up, Theta Chi, on
the other hand have won two firsts,
leading the fraternities in both wa-
ter polo and the swimming meet
by virture of its unusual aggrega-
tion of tankmen. No second places
have fallen to their lot but they
have managed to be up high in the
final totals of each league, a hab-
it that is not a new one with this
Greek letter group as a glance at
the standings of former years will
show. They won water polo last
year, too.
The third place house, Tau Kap-
pa Epsilon, has also taken a couple
firsts, one in the cross country event
and the other in wrestling, but
have accounted for no seconds. The
remainder of trophies won so far
have been dual swimming by Phi
Kappa Psi, who thus repeated their
work of last year; handball by Phi
Beta Delta, another case of a frat-
ernity holding the honors for two
years; and foul throwing tied by
Chi Psi and Alpha Omega, the lat-
ter of which had the honor of tak-
ing home the prize in that event
last year.
D. U. Is Secnd in Speedball.
Three other houses have come to
the fore in certain leagues of the
winter competition. Delta Upsilon
was runner-up in the speedball
tourney, Delta Alpha Epsilon fol-
lowed the T.K.E.'s in the cross coun-
try, and Delta Sigma Pi placed sec-
ond in the inter-fraternity wrest-
ling meet.
These standings will undoubted-
ly be changed after the results of
the Open House program have been
announced, for the bowling, basket-
ball, and volley ball tournaments
are now in the semi-finals with the

finals to be run off tomorrow. Be-
fore that, however, inter-fraternity
track will have been decided by the
meet slated for today. This will
close the winter schedule.

Michigan Golf Caotain'
Has Impressive Record
(Continued from Page 6)
occasion was devoid of errors, Roy-
ston was forced to this admission
after he had waged a terrific strug-
gle with "old man par", in which
he had "the old man" groggy and
reeling at the home green and a
new course record safely tucked in
his belt. A constant string of
birdies and pars clicked off his war
clubs, as he finished the round in
63, nine under par and three strokes
lower than the existing record for !
the course.
Royston has so far been forced
to concede the advantage to par
figures on the University course.
A 73, one over the regulation allot-
ment, is the best he has been able
to turn in over the new layout, but
he is confident that before the next
season is very old he will be ready
to give the "old man" a severe bat-
The new leader is also confident
that his Varsity machine will be
able to hold its own against all com-
petition during the coming cam-
paign and hopes to bring the Con-
ference championship back to
Michigan for the first time in sev-
eral years.
Class 'B' Cagers Play
demi-Final Contests
In the semi-final Class B fra-
ternity basketball games played last
night, Sigma Pi defeated Alpha Del-
ta Phi, 26-14, and Sigma Chi out-
did Kappa Nu, 26-14. In Class C.
Alpha Kappa Lambda won on a
forfeit from Phi Kappa Psi, and
Sigma Chi downed Phi Kappa Sig-
ma, 28-12.

Kappa; to Meet Betas in
Final Cage Tilt.
Beta Theta Pi barely escaped
elimination from the inter -frater-
nity basketball playoffs last night,
in the Intramural building at the
hands of T rigon 21 to 15 in two
overtime periods.
The Trigon team started out ear-
ly in the game with a series of long
toms and ran up a 7-4 score in their
favor by the half time. The Betas
gradually pulled up even to them
and tied the score in the last min-
ute of the regular game, 11-11. In
the first overtime Jones shot an-
other long basket and then Captain
Black dribbled in fast after taking
a pass from Miller and tied the
game again.
Play Overtinme Periods.
In the second overtimesperiod,
Adams took a double tip off from
Miller who got the ball on Arnold's
center tip and scored with his dog
shot. Later in the period Adams
made another short shot. Then
Miller followed one in for the Beta's
third two-pointer. Clark, of Trigon,
sank a long shot just before Adams
made his third basket in the over-
time period. When the gun sound-
ed the Betas were leading 21-15.
Trigon played the best possible
game against the tall Beta team by
using the long shot route. Dougall
connected with three of these at-
tempts to lead the Trigon scoring.
Dibble played one of the best floor
games seen in the tournament and,
was especially effective in stopping
the follow-in'attempts of the Beta
Alpha Sigs Win.
Adams led the winners in scoring
with 10 points, 8 of which came in
the second overtime. Miller gath-
ered 4 points for second place, with
Cummings following with 3. Arnold
and Black made 2 each.
Phi Sigma Kappa out-sobbed,
out-protested but were decidedly'
out-played as Alpha Sigma Phi won1
the right to meet the Beta in the
finals by winning 15-9. Renner
made 7 points for the winners and
Fay 5. The Alpha Sig team had

23. -(A)- Another Ferrell of the
Guilford, N. C., baseball family, is
laboring mightily to break into the
big time.
He is Marvin, aged 20, who is get-
ting a tryout with the St. Louis
Browns, now going through spring
capers here.
And there is one member of the
Browns who thinks Marvin has a
great chance to follow his celebrat-
ed brother, Wes Ferrell, as a suc-
cessful hurler.
That man is "Rick" Ferrell, an-
other brother and one of the
Browns' regular receivers. But even
if only half as successful as the
Cleveland star, Marvin should be of
help to the Browns. ,
The club, as records show, got the
worst pitching in the American
League last season. The earned run
percentage was 5.07 a game. Some-
thing less than a Wes Ferrell, it is
obvious, could improve such a pitch-
ing staff.
Marvin is six feet one inch tall
and weighs 170 pounds. He is a
degree smaller than Wes was when
the Cleveland star turned the
American League upside down by
winning 21 games his first full sea-
son in the majors.
Marvin received his preliminary
baseball training in a North Caro-
lina military school and in the coal
regions of West Virginia.
If hemakes the grade with the
Browns, he will be the fourth Fer-
rell brother in organized baseball.
George is an outfielder with Buf-
falo. In addition there is another
Ferrell, only 18, who has the stamp
of a ball player.
Marvin and Rick share "brother
act" honors this year with Detroit's
Gerald and Harvey Walker.
