Over 500 Perform Before
Record Crowd; High Schools
Contribute To Pack Building
All previous attendance records for the Intramural Open House were
broken last night when more than 4,000 spectators packed the Intramural
Building to watch the sixth annual running of the Open House program.
The official attendance was placed at 4,400.
Belleville alone sent three bus loads of high school students to witness
the 18 events listed on last night's card. The scholastic attendance was
further augmented by groups representing Chelsea, Lincoln Consolidated
and Ypsilanti High Schools.
More than 500 athletes in almost every indoor sport participated in the
program. Besides the team events and individual competition, several exhib-
itions featured the evening.
Outstanding among the various exhibitions were the swimming and
diving show by the Varsity and freshman squads, the acrobatic work of 12
University students on the horizontal*- -

and parallel bars, and rings, the gym-
nastic exhibition staged between
halves of the basketball games by the
West Intermediate School of Jackson,'
and the boxing show under the direc-
tion of Coach John Johnstone.
The results of the competitive
events follow:
Theta Chi won the Class "A" in-
ter-fraternity basketball title in the
feature court game of the evening
when they defeated Alpha Delta Phi,
21-10, in a rough and tumble exhibi-
tion. The Theta Chi's led throughout
the entire game and held a 12-3 ad-
vantage at the half.
Coward and Tillotson were the big
guns in the Theta Chi attack, ac-
counting. for fifteen of their teams'
21 points. The Alpha Delt's offensive
was slowed up to a considerable ex-
tent as the Theta Chi forwards con-
sistently checked their scoring plays
inside the foul line and broke down
the floor for baskets.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon took the
Class "B" basketball crown by a score
of 33-20 when their fast passing at-
tack was too well executed for the
team representing Delta Chi to cope
The winners displayed a smooth,
fast breaking offense that was par-
ticularly effective under the basket,
while their defensive play kept the
Delta Chi courtmen well away from
the S.A.E. territory. McNiff, S.A.E.,
was high point man garnering 6 bas-
kets. White and Glas were the high
scorers for the Delta Chi's, each ac-
counting for seven points.
Raiders Beat H.D.'s
The Blue Raiders, long rulers of
the independent basketball division
on the campus, displayed a beautiful
five-man passing attack to take the
crown once again last night, defeat-
ing the Humpty Dumpties by a score
of 21-10. This contest brought forth
the best basketball of the evening as
the Raiders completely bewildered the
Humpties with one of the fastest and
smoothest offensive exhibitions seen
recently in Intramural circles. Esko-
witz was the leading scorer for the,
winners with four baskets and three
foul throws for a total of 11 points.
Robert Anderson, '35, won the an-
nual All-Campus indoor tennis singles
tournament by defeating Harold
Kahn, '36, in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0.
In the first set the players appeared
very evenly matched. Kahn, display-
ing a strong backhand and an al-
most uncanny ability to return diffi-
cult shots, matched his stronger op-
ponent stroke for stroke until the
ninth game. Then, with the games at
four all, Anderson broke through
Kahn's serve and went on to win 6-4.
The second set was entirely dif-
ferent. Kahn appeared to be rapidly
tiring, while Anderson's shots became
stronger. He repeatedly forced his
smaller opponent out of position and
then drove hard shots to the far
corners of the court for points.
In a doubles exhibition preceding
the singles match, Appelt and Bowles
teamed to defeat Baldwin and Nisen
in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2.

Swimmers, Divers Are
Biggest Drawing Card
The biggest drawing attraction
of last night's Open House at the
Intramural building proved to be
the two swimming and diving ex-
hibitions put on by the Varsity and
freshman natators.
Several hundred persons packed
three sides of the pool and over-
flowed into the auxiliary gymna-
sium to watch the demonstration
by the winners of the Western
Conference championship last Sat-
Champions were decided in seven
weights in the annual All-Campus
wrestling tournament. Only two
bouts, the 165-pound and unlimited
divisions, were won by falls, all
others being decided by time advan-
The Johnson-Lowell match was the
closest of the seven, Johnson winning
by only a one minute, two second
time advantage. Rubin, using a dam-
aging scissors, defeated Edward Kell-
man in the 125-pound division by a
five minutes, 25 seconds advantage
to amass the largest time advantage
of the evening. .
SUMMARY: 125 lbs. :Edward Kell-
man defeated Allen Rubin (5:25 ad-
vantage); 135 lbs.: Walter Heaven-
rich defeated Paul Bremer (1:18 ad-
vantage); 145 lbs.: Bob Gardner .de-
feated Kay Locklin (3:02 advantage);

Delta Alpha Epsilon came back
after losing the first game to take
the fraternity volleyball title from
Delta Chi. The latter copped the first
game by a 15-0 score but were un-
able to keep up the pace and lost
the next two 'games 15 to 9 and 15 to
Bill Langen starred for the D.A.E.'s
with John Neal close behind him. The
team play for the D.A.E. was superior
and they didn't tire as did the Delta
Chi sauad in the last two games. Carl
Schultz starred for the losers.
The Chinese Students defeated Tau
Kappa Epsilon in the volleyball ex-'
hibition. The Chinese lost the first
game but got their attack functioning
in the last two to win easily by scores
of 10-15, 15-7, 15-6.
The Ann Arbor Y.M.C.A. team
played the second exhibition game
with the Detroit Northern Y.M.C.A.
volleyball squad. Ann Arbor won two
games to one.
By taking two out of three matches
from the Phi Kappa Psi team last
night, the Phi Beta Delta fraternity
handball team won the campus

est in the proposed. Clifford Keen
vs. Nick Londes bout, I hasten to dis-
close more information on the prob-
ability of the fight. As one of the pro-
moters thereof I desire to make the
statement that this rassle, if we suc-
ceed in signing the boys on, will be
for the Championship of the World
and Ann Arbor.
Both lads are in tip-top shape,
scaling around 160 or 170, although
Tuesday both claimed to be the
lighter man. Keen has a slight height
advantage and betting so far goes
slightly to the Michigan coach locally,
although reports from Detroit indi-
cate more even betting there.
Londes' hand will be recovered in
about 10 days, although it is possible
that he and Keen may put on an ex-
hibition after the finals of the Na-
tional Intercollegiates on Saturday
night in the Intramural Building.
There is some slight question as to
whether Londes will be feeling in
good shape after his show be-
tween Steele and Londos Friday
night, but advance ticket sales for
that bout indicate that Londes will be
feeling fine.
bout is that Keen, a professional
by virtue of his coaching activities is
wrestling Londes, an amateur. But
Keen is trying to prove a point in
favor of the amateurs, and Londes is
trying to prove the professional side
of the question.
Due to the fact that there were two
publicity men present after the boys
had been together for a while on
Tuesday, I was slightly suspicious as
to their intentions, but in all serious-
ness, I believe that the boys really
do want to wrestle. After all, what
did you do in your younger days
when someone came along, stuck his
snout close to yours and growled "I
kin lick you!"
I am tentatively planning on hav-
ing the bout, if it is impossible to
stage it after the finals Saturday
night, in the Angell Hall arena with
the objective in view of wrestling
from the first to the third floor up
the stairs and then down again.
