Chicago's renaissance in football, won
the honor with votes to spare in the

Associated Press. Athletic directors,
coaches, officials and sports experts
around the Conference cast all the
ballots, 22 of them going to Ber-
wanger. Duane Purvis. Purdue's foot-
ball and track star who won the poll
last year, was second with 14, and
Willis Ward of Michigan, third with
12. Both Purvis and Ward lost votes
because of injuries which greatly
handicapped them during the past
Others receiving votes in the Con-
ference-wide poll were: Jack Bey-

Indiana, 6; Frances (Pug) Lund, Min-

In seven games he carried the ball
from scrimmage 137 times, an aver-
age of 19.7 times per game, advancing
a total of 595 yards, or 4.4 yards per
try. He punted 77 times, an average
of 11 punts per game, for a total of
3,026 yards from the line of scrim-
mage, or an average of 39.3 yards per
kick. Of his 77 kicks, 30 were punted
out-of-bounds and five were over the
goal line, so that his average might
have been higher had he not beer

He threw 45 forward passes, 14 of
which were caught by Maroon receiv-
ers for a total gain of 297 yards. He
returned 13 kickoffs a total of 347
yards and scored eight touchdowns
and eight points after touchdown for
a total of 56 points. His most spectac-

wether of the team's defense. He was

I-M Volleyball Title
Phi Beta Delta won the inter-
fraternity volleyball title Tuesday by
winning from Beta Theta Pi in the
finals, 3-2. The champions won the
first two games, lost the next pair
and then took the final 15-11 to raise
their Intramural point total for the
year to 320 and take a firm grip on
second place.
Intramural officials announced yes-
terday that the annual faculty hand-
ball doubles tournament will start
after vacation with singles competi-

Sixteen teams entered last year's
meet and more are expected in the
coming tourney. R. G. Smith and E.
E. Nelson were the winners last year,
defeating John Dorsey and Matt
Mann in the finals.

In cold financial figures, too, De-
troit, as well as State, will feel the
effects. The two state schools will
be equally hurt by the cessation of
what has become a highly profitable
rivalry. The absence of W. & J. and
Marquette, always good drawing
cards in Detroit, is liable to make
large holes in the Titan athletic
treasury unless some really first-rank
teams can be secured at this, a very
late date.
