Delta Upsilon, Physical Eds

Win Intramural Softball Titles

D.U.'s Eke Out
6-5 Win Over
Sigma Phi Ten'
Sigma Phi Errors Prove
Costly; Bolas Fans 14
Batters For Victors
Climaxing the intramural depart-
ment's spring softball program, Delta
Upsilon edged out Sigma Phi 6-5 in1
the final game of the interfraternity
league's playoffs to win the cham-i
pionship. Well over 200 enthusiastic
spectators witnessed the event held
yesterday at Palmer Field.
Winning every game played this
season, the title is the first one that
the D.U.'s have ever won in softball.
Lusk Fans 12
George Bolas, though allowing the
Sigs eight hits, proved to be the star
of the game as he struck-out 14
players. Pat Lusk, pitching for the
Sigma Phi's, gave out only four hits
and fanned 12 but poor fielding ac-
counted for the margin of defeat.
Delta Upsilon drew first blood when
Joe White, hit along hard home run
to left field in the first inning, but
Sigma Phi came back to tie the score
in the second with another homer to
left by the first man up, Sandy Far-
In their half of the third, the D.U.'s
staged a rally, putting across four
runs on one hit and three errors.
Hugh Hayward reached first on an
error, Bugs Haight walked, and both
scored when Harold Clayton also got
on with an error. White made first
base by means of another error per-
mitting Clayton to score. Dick May
clouted a low, fast triple to right
scoring White. The next two men
struck out.
Sigs Score Four
Both teams went scoreless in the
fourth but in the fifth the Sigs put
on a display of fireworks to force four
runs in on four clean hits and an er-
ror after two were out. With Doug
Hayes on first due to a muff, Mike
Meisel fanned and Ted Steinhausen
popped out. Bob Ried then singled
and Dick Babcock doubled to left
bringing in Hayes and Ried. Lusk
hit to score Babcock and Hal Black-
burn brought Lusk in.
Bolas scored the winning run in the
fifth, when after singling, May hit to
second. The Sigma Phi's could make
only one more hit in the next two
ings not enough to score a run.
Perry, Austin Beat
French Net Stars
PARIS, May 27. - (P)--Fred Perry
and H. W. (Bunny) Austin, England's
Davis Cup stars, moved into the quar-
ter-finals of the French hard courts
singles tennis championship today as
Andrew Merlin completed his con-
quest of Heiner Henkel, brilliant
young German.
Perry, the defending champion, held
Andre Martin-Legart under pressure
except for the third set. The scores
were 6-2, 6-3, 0-6, 6-3.
Austin's experience and superior
skill led the Briton to a 3-6, 6-2, 7-5,
1-6, 6-2 victory over Paul Feret, the
former French professional.
Continuing their third-round match
postponed yesterday by rain, Merlin
completed the elimination of Henkel.
At the time of the interruption, Mer-
lin was leading 7-5, 6-4, 1-5. Henkel
won the third set, 6-2, today, but lost
the fourth and the match, 8-6.

Swimmers Looking Ahead
MATT MANN'S swimming team has
Our prognosticating has lost
the past winter's season with its Big
Ten disaster and its successful climax
in the National Collegiate meet, but
the Wolverines are still hard at work
in the Intramural Pool - and the
coming Olympic trials are not the only
incentive. They already are looking
to next season.
Our prognosticating has lost
much of its self respect since we
picked Michigan teams to win the
Conference swimming and out-
door track titles, but this time
iwe feel we can't he wrong when
we say next winter's natators
will be victorious by large margins
in every dual meet and in the
Big Ten and National Collegiate
Next season looks like the greatest
of the great, even from this early date,
and our optimism is shared by Co-
Captains- Frank Barnard and Jack
The past year's team rode to its
third straight National Collegiate
championship "on the backs" of four
stellar divers, and while three of the
four will be missing next winter, their
loss will be more than compensated
by the addition of the greatest crop
of freshmen ever to hit Ann Arbor
-most of them free-style perform-
ers, the stroke that Michigan's still
strong team was very definitely weak
in during the past year.
Co-Captain Barnard was the only
Michigan free-style swimmer to qual-
ify for the finals in either the Big
Ten or Collegiate championships,
winning the Conference quarter-mile,
taking third in the 220 in the same
meet, and placing fourth in the N.C.-
A.A. 1500-meter swim. Next season
Barnard will probably confine him-
self to the sprint relay.
In contrast to this year's dis-
mal showing, at least six free-
stylers of the past season's fresh-
man squad will undoubtedly place
in the Conference meet. Bar-
nard's place in the distances will
be taken by Tom Haynie, Dave
Holmes and Ed Kent, the first
two of whom consistently defeat-
ed the Big Ten 440 champion this
winter. Haynie, who won four
places in the National A.A.U.
meet this winter, is almost a sure
bet for the Olympic team, should
he decide to give up the summer
for the trip.
Of the present crop of Varsity
sprint men, Bob Mowerson, wh
makes championship times on the
end of a relay team but fails in in-
dividual competition, will probably
be the only letter-winner to swim
regularly next season.
Bill Farnsworth, Ed Kirar, Leo
Tomski and Baker Bryant are four
of Coach Mann's first-year dash men
who have shown enough ability to
become favorites to displace the
Conference and Collegiate 50 and
100-yard free-style champions next
year. By using Barnard and Mow-
erson, and at times Paul Keeler and
Erwin McCarty of this year's team.
together with this stellar quartet.
Coach Mann will be able to place fresh
men in the 50 and 100 and have only
one or two men doubling in the re-
lays. All this without loss of strength
in any of the events.
Co-Captain Kasley, the world's
greatest swimmer in his stroke,
will handle the breast-stroke du-

ties and probably continue to
break more world records, but he
will be ably seconded by Bill Crit-
tenden, letter winner in 1935. Ed
VanderVelde of the Varsity and
the versatile Kent also will see
some action.
The Varsity appears to be well
fortified in the back-stroke with

Butler Pitches,1

To 5-2_Victory
HIamIberger Shares Batting
Honors By Making Two
Of D.D.'s Three Hits
Repeating his 1935 performance,
Dwight Butler, ace hurler of the In-
tramural softball teams, led the
Physical Education nine to its second
consecutive independent title yester-
day at Palmer Field in a three-hit
victory over the D.D.'s by a 5 to 2
score. Butler struck out 16 of the 28
men to face him.
Butler Stars
His playing completely overshad-
owed that of the rest of the Phys. Ed.
team both afield and at bat. His
performance equaled that of Estil
"Zit" Tessmer, Sigma Nu ace of sev-
eral seasons ago. He augmented his
work on the mound by tripling his
first time up to score the team's sec-
ond and third run and knocking a
home run into center field his third
time at bat for two more tdllys.
The D.D.'s collected only three hits
off of Butler, two of them by Ham-
berger who accounted for the first
D.D. run which he tripled in the sixth
to score Joe Rattner who had walked.
Chuck Balance, the catcher, tripled
in the seventh and scored when the
shortstop threw wide in an attempt
to nip him at the plate later in the
Joe Siracusa, pitching for the
D.D.'s allowed only four hits, but two
of them, together with two walks in
the first inning scored all the runs
their opponents needed to win. Many
a possible rally of the Physical Edu-
cation team was cut short by the ex-
cellent fielding of Ben Wilcox, who,
playing shortstop for the loser's
snatched up several hard grounders
that might easily have gone for hits.
Hamberger Hits Twice
The winners opened the first in-.
ning with a walk. "Skinny" Nelson
tripled to score the first run and
came home on Butler's triple with Art
Schauer who had walked. Norm
Hamberger, the loser's second base-
man, doubled his first time up but
died on base when the next two men
went out on infield plays. His triple
in the sixth, the second hit of the
game, which scored Joe Rattner, and
Chuck Balance's triple in the seventh
were the only other hits the D.D.'s
were able to collect.
Harry Rieke, who came up fast in
his first taste of collegiate competi-
tion this semester, and Fred Cody'
second in the Conference and third
in the Nationals in 1935. Haynie and
Kent are a pair of all-around per-
ormers who can be, called upon to
urn over on their backs, and Fred
Robinson of the freshmen is sure
to make his presence felt.
Ben Grady is the only one of the
quartet of divers who have carried
Michigan to national honors for the
past two years returning, but he
will have capable support from fresh-
man Jerry Newhouse and Adie Fer-
stenfeld, reserve who has been kept
under cover for the past two winters.
All in all, we can't see any outcome
other than the eighth National Col
legiate championship in 11 years for
Michigan next season.

Varsity Nine Seeks Mythical
State Title In Spartan Series

feaud w

With Western State's scalp tucked
safely under their belt, Coach Ray,
Fisher'sConference leaders will go
after the mythical State champion-j
ship Friday and Saturday when they
play Michigan State in a home and
home series.
To date, the Spartans are the only
team as yet undefeated in State
competition, having blasted the Hill-
toppers earlier in the season in a 11
to 0 victory. The Wolverines have
lost only one decision in similar
games, splitting a home and home
series with the Normal College at
Seek State Title
If the Varsity can take both ends
of the series, they can lay undisputed
claim to the coveted mythical laurels.
But the road to the rosy crown is
strewn with thorns. Coach John
Kobs' men have been hitting at a
.400 clip, about 75 points faster than
the Michigan team, and have a record
of 12 wins in 15 starts. The Wolver-
ines have won 16 games in 20 starts.
As a result of last Saturday's fiasco
at East Lansing, when the Buckeyes
took a 9 to 6 decision over the Spar-
tans after trailing in the fifth 6 to 3,
Coach Kobs has been contemplating
some changes in his lineup. Clyde

Randall, red-headed sophomore
shortstop from Detroit whose error
led directlyhto the Ohio State vic-e
tory, was the first slated to test the
comfort of the sideline bench. His
faultless fielding in practice this week,
however, combined with his all-sea-
son hitting ability, has caused the
Spartan mentor to remain undecided
as to whether or not he will start in
Friday's game.
Glaza Is Second Baseman
Another possible substitution in
the State lineup will see Steve Glaza
at second base. Auston Weimer, a
senior, has played the position for the
last five games, but Coach Kobs is
starting Giaza, who had the call for
the first part of the season, in an
effort to instill a little power into the
Warren Walters, sophomore south-
paw who lost his second Big Ten de-
cision in Saturday's game because of
the poor suport he received, will face
Capt. Berger Larson on the mound in
Friday's game, which will be played
at Ferry Field. George Hill is the
probable Spartan hurler for Satur-
day's game at East Lansing. He will
be opposed by Herm Fishman.
Kocsis Cards 79 In First
Round Of Temper Meet
DETROIT, May 27.- (P)-Chuck
Kocsis, captain of the Varsity golf
team and Western Conference cham-
pion, scored a 79 in the first round
of the True Temper Open at Bir-
mingham Golf Club. Kocsis was
seven over par with a 39 and 40. Wal-
ter Hagen, Detroit's veteran prP,
carded a sub-par 71 to lead the field of
120 competitors.
Emerick Kocsis, brother of the
Michigan captain, shot a 74 to gain
a place among the leaders. Babe
Ruth registered an 88 combining a
40 and 48 for his eighteen hole total.

Golf Team Will
Leave For State
Meet Tomorrow
Coach Ray Courtright and a seven-
man team will leave at 7 a.m. tomor-
row for the last golf match of the
season with Michigan State in the
afternoon at East Lansing.
Capt. Chuck Kocsis, individual Big
Ten champion, will not be present at
the final appearance of the team he
led to their fifth consecutive Big
Ten title. He will compete today in
the annual True Temper Open cham-
pionship being played on the Birm-
ingham Golf Course. Following the
completion of the required 72 holes
tomorrow, he will leave for New York
where he will seek further honors in
the National Open championship to
be played on the Baltusrol course.
Woody Malloy, Allan Saunders, Al
Karpinski, Bill Barclay, Dick Mor-
airty, Bill Griffiths and Emil Gallan
are the men making the trip. Seven
singles matches will be played with
21 points out.
The Spartans will be seeking re-
venge for a 19 to 5 defeat suffered in
April on the University course when
they were able to seize only one match
out of five.
