Varsity Golfers
Will Meet Ypsi
Normal Today
Michigan Golf Team Will
Take Four Men For Big
Ten Meet This Saturday
The final opportunity for local
golf fans to view the Varsity team
in action before it journeys to the
Conference meet will be offered when
the team plays Ypsi Normal on the
University course today. The first
match will tee off at 1:30 p. mn. with
the object of giving the students a
chance to see most of the meet.
The foursomes, usually played in
the morning, will start the afternoon
play, with the single matches being
played immediately afterward. The
main concern of the players is, of
course, the determination of the
four men whom Coach Trueblood
will take to Evanston for the Con-
ference meet next week-end.
Fischer To Defend Title
The coach has not indicated who
will be the main contestants for the
berths on the trip, but Johnny
Fischer is considered almost a cer-
tainty. It is expected that he will
get stiff competition from the Big
Ten golfers in attempting to retain
his title as National Intercollegiate
champion. Ed Dayton has been
shooting good golf all spring and
should rate high among the Varsity
representatives in the meet. The
other two places appear to be some-
what of a toss-up between Markham,
David, Sweet, and Jolly. However,
any or all of these men may be dis-
placed by the showings in today's
Although Michigan beat Ypsi 15 to
3 on the Huron Hills course in their
last meeting, the Normal team may
spring a surprise on the University
course and give the Varsity some
real competition.
Many Faculty
Men Take Part
Three hundred ten different mem-
bers of the University faculty have
participated in the organized intra-
mural sports put on for their bene-
fit during the last three years, ac-
cording to a statement made by Earl
Riskey, Assistant Director of Intra-
mural Sports, yesterday.
Riskey emphasized the fact that
these figures are only for those fac-
ulty men who compete in the tour-
naments that the I-M department
puts on, and would be much larger
if all the men using the facilities for
golf, handball, skating and tennis
solely for physical recreation could
be counted.
Baseball, of the indoor variety, is
the most popular sport judging by
the numbers participating, with vol-
leyball, squash, handball and swim-
ming following in that order. Riskey
showed that a majority of the men
take part in at least two activities
during the year.
Some Win Two Titles
In recent years, three men have
won championships in two different
sports. Bob Angell has copped titles
in squash and tennis, Dr. John Dor-
sey has won handball and tennis
crowns and M. L. Niehuss took
squash and golf championships.
Angell has added to his impres-
sive record by taking the squash title
twice while Dorsey has held the
handball crown for two years. James
Cissel has won the golf champion-

ship for two years and is conceded a
chance for the title again this year.
Riskey listed the following sports
conducted for faculty men: archery,
badminton, b a s e b all, basketball,
bowling, codeball, fencing, golf,
handball, horseshoes, riding, rifle
shooting, squash, swimming, tennis,
volleyball, and water polo.

Griffiths Tells
Of Proposed
W.A.A. Project
Under Billie Griffiths, recently-
elected president of the Women's
Athletic Association, several new and
important changes are to be consid-
ered. Plans for the building of a I
cabin, for abolishing membership
fees, and for enlarging the scope of
intercollegiate competition are; among
the most far-reaching of the proj-_
For many years W. A. A. members
have been planning and working for
the cabin which they hope to build.
It may be that they cannot carry it
through next year, but they are hop-
ing to get started. The site selected
for the cabin will probably be on
the River Road somewhere, accord-
ing to Miss Griffiths.
Dues May Be Abolished
Abolishing dues is one of the
means devised to offset the bad in-'
fluences of the depression. "We feel
that perhaps many girls failed to
join this year because of the dollar
price of membership, and we hope
to get the women really interested
in athletics into the group by this
action," stated Miss Griffiths.
The deficit which will be caused
by eliminating dues will be made up
by three projects similar to the
Penny Carnival which will be under-
taken by the club. Members will be
chosen on a standard of points for
participation in the various sports
on the W. A. A. schedule.
The cut in the physical education
requirement will be beneficial to
W. A. A., she feels. "We will get
only the people really interested in
the club activities," she says.
A foothold in the realm of inter-
collegiate activities was already made
this year in basketball and swim-
ming. It will be the aim of W. A. A.
to further these sports as much as
The club now boasts a member-
ship list of more than 80, and will
probably have more next year.

Fraternity Teams
Reach Semi-Finals
Phi Lambda Kappa was the first
team to reach the semi-finals in the
fraternity softball league by virtue of
an 11-7 victory over Tau Delta Phi.
Phi Lambda Kappa was the winner
league for professional fraternities
and drew a bye in the quarter-finals.
Both teams hit hard but the victors
camne through with an eight-run
ralfy in the third inning that deter-
mined the game.
Tomorrow at 5:15, Acacia and Phi
Beta Delta will have it out to de-
cide one of the quarter-finalists in
the upper bracket.
Theta Chi Holds First In
Sigma Delta Psi Tests
Sigma Delta Psi membership was
closed today as far as fraternity
competition is concerned. Theta Chi
placed first with 72 points, and
Sigma Chi was runner-up with 44.
Alpha Kappa Lambda, last year's
winner, came in third with 28 and
Phi Kappa Gamma closed the list of
places taking fourth with 21 points.
Individual competition is still
open, however, and tests are being
held to determine the award win-
ners. The awards will be distributed
during the last days of the month.

Congratulations, Willis
WE NOTE with pleasure the an-
nouncement of Willis Ward's in-
itiation into Sphinx, honorary junior
literary society. Although only one
of 12 sophomores so honored, his se-
lection is especially significant in
that he is the first member of his
race to be taken into an honorary
society at Michigan.
We feel that Ward is deserving of
the honor bestowed upon him, not
only because he is an athlete of un-
questionable ability, but because he
is an all-around "regular guy." Un-
assuming, in spite of his athletic
fame, he is well-liked by all who
come in contact with him.
Delving into his high school rec-
ord, we find that he made an en-
viable account of
himself at Detroit
Northwestern. On
the athletic field
he starred -in both
football and track.
He was an All-
state end and the
best high-jumper
in the country. He
still holds the Na-
tional Interscho-
lastic indoor rec-
ord at 6 feet 6 inches.
In the classroom he was an intel-
ligent student, as is borne out by the

fact that he received the U. of M.
award, a presentation of the Detroit
Alumni Club to the best scholar and
athlete in the senior class.
After being nominated to the
presidency of the senior class, he
withdrew-to be elected treasurer.
In the words of a classmate, "He
could have owned the school if he'd
wanted to."
