Eighth Annual Intramural Open House

To Be Held Tonigh

Frosh, Varsity
Wrestling Meet
Delta Kappa Epsilon Faces
Chi Psi In Class 'A' Cage
Finals At 8:30 P.M.
Net Team To Play
Ernie Smith And Davidow,
State Champion, To Give
Squash Exhibition
The intramural department's
eighth annual Open House with 21
different sports and hundreds of par-
ticipants will entertain an expected
crowd of 5,000 spectators for three
hours tonight beginning at 7:00 p.m.
at the Intramural Sports Building.
The Open House, which is Ann Ar-
bor's largest athletic show, has been
built up year by year from a small
event to one of major importance to
sports enthusiasts. The program this
year is the largest and most diversi-
fied that has ever been offered.
What is probably the feature event
of the whole evening will take place at
7:30 when the freshman and Var-
sity wrestling squads meet to see
whether the freshmen's claim of su-
periprity over the Varsity squad is
Dekes Face Chi Psi
Another event which has drawn
the largest crowds in the past is the
finals in the Class "A" fraternity
basketball league, which is sched-
uled to take place at 8:30 p.m. Delta
Kappa Epsilon will face Chi Psi this
year in a game which promises to
provide many thrills for the onlook-
ers. Chis Psi, fresh from a 21-12
victory over the strong Sigma Alpha
Mu quintet in the semi-finals, has a
fast breaking, close guarding team
which should provide the Dekes with
all the basketball that they want.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon will play Delta
Sigma Pi at 7:00 p.m. in the finals
of the Class "B" fraternity basketball
Both teams have strong aggrega-
tions that have swept aside all op-
position so far and should put on a
good game.
At 9:00 p.m. the Physical Ed's and
the All-Stars will tangle in the finals
of the Independent basketball league.
The members of the Physical Ed
team started to play together when
they were freshmen and have played
for four years with a very enviable
record. They won the Independent
title as freshmen, reached the play-
offs when they were sophomores, won
the title again last year, and are fa-
vored to repeat this year. Mike Sav-
age, one of the original quintet, has
been an Independent All-Star selec-
tion for the last three years.
Chi Psi, the fraternity champions,
and the D.D.'s the independent win-
ners, will engage in a foul shooting
contest between halves of the inde-
pendent basketball game.
Horseshoe Exhibition
One of the most interesting and
unusual events of the evening will be
a horseshoe pitching exhibition be-
tween halves of the Class "B" fra-
ternity basketball game by 12 year
old Bobby Hitt of Plymouth, Mich.
Bobby, who weighs only 86 pounds
an; pitches the regulation shoes and
distances, will run through his reper-
toire of tricks which includes light-
ing matches, and ringing covered
Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti Central, Ypsi-
lanti Roosevelt, and University High
School swimming teams and the
freshman swimming team will give
exhibition free-style and medley re-

lays. Bryant "Bud" Ruthven will
give a rope twirling exhibition from
the diving board.
Ernie Smith, the Intramural
Sport's Department's star squash
player will play an exhibition match
with Dr. David Davidow of Detroit.
Davidow recently defeated Smith in
the finals of the Michigan State tour-
Psi Upsilon, the fraternity cham-
pions, and Sigma Chi, the runners-up
in the fraternity league, will oppose
each other in an exhibition water
polo match.
The Chinese students will meet
the D.D.'s in a volleyball game at 7:00
p.m., and the Ann Arbor Y.M.C.A.
will play the Jackson Y.M.C.A. at
8:00 p.m.
Handba Stars Meet
A group of handball players from
Toledo and Detroit will be on hand to
give exhibitions against the local tal-
ent. Walker and Berg of Toledo, the
runners-up in the national Y.M.C.A.
tournament, are scheduled to play a
match with Schaufelberger and Dowd
of Detroit.
Miller Sherwood and Howie Kahn,
Jarvis Dean and Jesse Flick, and

Independents Tie
Kappas For Girls'
Swimming Crown
Kappa Kappa Gamma and an In-
dependent team made up of girl's
league house residents tied for first
place in the Women's Intramural'
swimming meet held last night in the
Union pool. Each team scored 33
points as Betsy Barbour placed third
with an 18-point total. The Kappas
were the defending champions.
For the second consecutive year,
Katherine Johnston of Kappa was
the high-point scorer with 17 2 3
points placing first in the 40-yard
crawl, 25-yard back-stroke, 25-yard
crawl and tieing for third place with
two other women in the diving. Sally
Kenny of the Independent team gar-
nered 12 2 3 points for second posi-
tion in the individual standings.
Three new records were set in the
40-yard crawl, 25-yard breast-stroke,
and 25-yard consolation crawl. Miss
Johnston set a new mark of 26.5 in
the crawl bettering the old standard
of 27.4 set last year. Miss Kenny's
time of 19.5 in the breast-stroke was
1.8 seconds better than last year's
record while Doris Holt won the con-
solation even in 19 flat.
In the 40-yard back-stroke Mary
Redden, co-captain of the Indepen-
dent squad won by a wide margin
over Janet Lambert of Martha Cook.
Mabel Howard was third.
Elizabeth Hopkins of the Kappas
captured the 25-yard side-stroke,
nosing out Esther Middlewood and
Betty Fromm. The 75-yard medley
relay was won by Betsy Barbour with
the Independents second and Martha
Cook third.
Alpha Phi swam to victory in the
100-yard free-style relay in the fast
time of 1:10 flat ahead of Kappa
Kappa Gamma and Kappa Alpha
Theta. '
In the final event of the evening,
Pauline Mitchell and Lorraine Lam-
bert tied for first place in the diving.

-- --- By BILL REED
EEV eet to heem," battle cry of
the vicarious grappler whose
lusts are none the less carnal for the
fact that his habitat is the balcony
and not the ring, forms the theme
of today's dissertation.
For it is that cry which is the raison
d'etre (pardon me) for the dramas
which disgrace the professional
wrestling game. Year after year,
match after match, and grunt after
groan the cry rings out, following
the progress of the matches which
run uniformly true to type.
There are the Horatio Alger con-
quests, the hero coming from under
to win; there are the virtue-always
triumphs fights, a variation of the
first when the terribly wronged and
virtuously behaved young man by a
superhuman effort rises at last and
throws the villain far into the shad-
ows; and there is the well-he-can-be-
gotten-next-time bout when the un-
popular conqueror is booed out of the
arena as the defeated warrior raises
his bloody head to issue a challenge
for another match, next Monday
night right here in this ring!
They are but a part of the reper-
toire of the well-trained wrestling
troupe, and their presentations are
indeed a fertile field of observation
for the anthropologist or the student
of abnormal psychology, but to the
true sports fan, whose appreciation
of fine competition between highly
trained athletes is well developed,
such exhibitions are nothing short of
For if the result of every bout is
not fixed the technique is, and the
faked punches and cushioned slams
are, to be completely objective, not
the essence of true sport.
All of which leads to mention of
the freshman-Varsity wrestling meet
which features the Open House to-
night. In that meet 16 of the Uni-
versity's best wrestlers will be giving
their best in a sport which has as
much basis in science as anyindi-
vidual competition. Their desire is
not to satisfy the bloody lusts of the
balcony bruisers, but to get the fullest
return~s from a sport which made the
greatest demands upon the resource-
fulness and physical development of
the individual.
Dull as the sport appears at times
as two men go through the process
of getting an advantage which will
not be broken by a violent grunt, the
details of that process give followers
of the game a thrill which the simu-
lated batterings of the professional
ring cannot possibly offer.
Senator King, of Utah. hasn't been
to more than half a dozen major
league baseball games during his
long years in Washington, despite the
fact that he was captain and pitcher
at Michigan University and played at
Utah University and Brigham Young.

Pitchers in the Field House cages
are perspiring more these days than
work and weather seem to justify,,
especially when a certain husky young
man takes his turn in batting prac-
tice. And they have sufficient rea-

Awarded First Letter
The big fellow wielding such an
especially menacing mace is John

his basketball shoes for a pair of

awarded his first letter, in basketball,
and thereby hangs our tale.
When Jabby came to Michigan he !
was preceded by a reputation as one
of New Jersey's finest prep basket-
ball players. His baseball talent
wasn't exactly a myth, either, for he
possessed a strong throwing arm and'
swung a powerful bat. Coach Fisher
expected to utilize Jab's ability be-
hind the plate, whence balls thrown
like bullets were pretty handy wea-
pons on a ball field.
Ineligible Two Years
But both Coaches Fisher and Cap-
pon were doomed to disappointment,
for the Jersey flash tripped up scho-
lastically in his sophomore and jun-
ior years. He was always on hand
for the fall semester but failed to
make the grade his second semester.
This year, however, Jabby finally
beat his old bugaboo, and proved a

FOR 1936 we offer what we
think is the finest car in Ford
history. But no car is ever con-
sidered perfect and finished
as far as Ford engineers are
concerned. Once a year we
introduce new models-since
that is the custom - but con-
stantly we make improve-
ments in our car, for that is
our lifelong habit. We don't
wait for Show time to make
a better car.
Proof of this is the present
Ford V- 8. In basic design it is
almost the same as when in-
troduced four years ago. But
in performance and economy



there is no comparison be-
tween the 1932 and 1936 cars.
Ford engineers do not work
with yearly models in mind.

The Ford

Motor Company

does not wait for introductory
dates to incorporate improve-
ments. As soon as exhaustive
tests prove that a new mate-
rial is better, into production
it goes. When new machining
processes or new inspection
methods are proved superior
in they go also.
The purchasers get the ad
vantage of all improvement
as soon as we are certain tha
they are improvements.

Baseball Men Will
Drill Outside Soon
With the prospect of soon moving
his squad outside, Coach Ray Fisher
will this week make the first baseball
cut of the season and reduce his
infield and outfield candidates to
about 15.
At present the squad is drilling in
the Field House with Fisher con-
centrating on developing hitting
strength. Hurlers are beginning to
bear down now for the first time and
results indicate that Michigan's
strength at the plate may be consid-
erably better than last year.
More than 10 moundsmen are work-

Fisher hopes will carry the Wol-
