Roland Smith With Best
Play Of Tournament
By ROBERT CUMMINS
Bill Bates, the final University rep-
resentative in the State A.A.U. hand-
ball tournament, was eliminated in
a bitterly fought match with the vet-
eran Chet York, Detroit, last night
on the Intramural courts.
The score was 17-21, 21-20, 21-20.
Bates had the match almost within
his grasp in the second game. With
the score 20-all, the service changed
four times before York finally came
through to win. York had an equally
difficult time in the deciding game.

George McCarthy, Detroit Police

formidable opponent tonight in John
