Our Greatest Athlete

When Big Ten athletic directors, at
their meeting in Chicago last week,
passed rulings giving Michigan the
Conference tennis meet this spring
and provided for six-man teams at
the tourney instead of the usual four-
man teams, they put Coach John
Johnstone and his Wolverine netters!
on the proverbial spot.
For years, the lament of the Mich-
igan tennis players and coaches has
been that the playing conditions
down on Ferry Field were anything
but ideal and that our teams which
always have six or eight good play-
ers and no outstanding stars would
do much better if they could play
six singles matches instead of four.
First Six-Man Meet
The passing of this motion, which'
incidentally was seconded by Ath-
letic Director Fielding H. Yost, mak-
ing this Big Ten meet the first six-
man affair in Conference history,
and the probability that the matches
will be played on Palmer Field in-,
stead of Ferry Field puts the matter
squarely up to the Wolverines. They
must make a better showing than
they have ever done before if they
are going to show that their com-
plaints about the four-man teams
were not merely alibis for losing ag-
Northwestern Loses Star
On paper, Coach Johnstone's pro-
teges do seem to have a better chance
this year. Captain Miller Sherwood,
Ted Thorward, Jarvis Dean, Jesse
Flick and Neil Levenson are return-
ing lettermen from last year's squad
that placed third in the Conference.
Billy Mills, star of last year's fresh-
manbsquad and touted as the one of
the best tennis prospects ever to en-
ter Michigan, will also be fighting for
a place along with Ed Paine, number

two man on last season's yearlings.
On the other side of the fence,
Northwestern, last year's Big Ten
champions were weakened consider-

Northwestern last year, would rank
as top heavy favorites to cop the title
under a four-man team system. Nor-
man Bickle, Big Ten singles cham-
pion and Norman Burgess, their
number two man are almost certain
to win their singles and doubles
Have Better Chance
However with six singles matches
being played this year, the Wolver-
ine netters can better afford to lose
the number one and two singles
since they should be stronger than
the other Big Ten teams in the fifth
and sixth positions.
It's up to Coach Johnstone and
his tennis players now-the meet is
on their home grounds, they have
most of their lettermen back and
they've won their fight for six-man
teams. It's up to them to justify the
change by walking off with the Big
Ten championship.

Chelso Tomagno,


Chelso Tomagno, captain of the
Michigan basketball team last year,
has cast his lot with a group of pro-
fessional cagers in Chicago, his home
town. Tomagno plays for the Brandt
Florals in the Windy City league, and
opened the season last night playing
against Sid Rosenthal, Iowa's cage
captain last year.

system of five for first place and three
for the runner-up.
Theta Xi placed second with nine
points, winning by a narrow margin
over Psi Upsilon and Theta Chi, who
scored eight points apiece.
Whittemore, of Psi Upsilon, wast-
ed little time in his bout with Son-
neborn of Theta Chi, pinning him in
the startling time of 44 seconds to
win the 125-pound crown. Sonneborn
was willing, but he fell before the
greater experience of his rival, who
pinned him with a bar arm and a
wrist lock.
Weir Is Outstanding
Ranny of Theta Chi defeated Chap-
man of Psi Upsilon to win the cham-
: pionship of the 135-pounders. The
outstanding match of the evening
occurred when Weir of Theta Xi met
Comins, Alpha Kappa Lambda star.
The two boys exhibited an excellent
knowledge of the holds and escapes.
Both held the advantage, but Weir
was definitely superior and threw his
opponent in 3:15.
Blake, representing Lambda Chi
Alpha, put on an exciting bout with
Jacobson of Sigma Phi at 155-1
pounds. The bout was brief butl
filled with action with both boys
eager for the fray, Jacobson scoring
a fall in 2:37.
l ( Platt Wins
Platt, of Chi Psi,ssurpassed his
predecessor, Whitmore by gaining a
fall over his opponent, Ellsworth in
40 seconds. The match had scarcely
gotten under way, when Platt
slammed his man-to the mat to score
a victory.
Kennicott of Chi Psi was declared
the winner and ruler of the 175-
pounder by virtue of a default. Jack
Brennan of Phi Gamma Delta
scored a decisive victory over Smith
of Chi Psi. Although, his time ad-
vantage was only 2 :11, he held the
upper hand throughout the match.
Chi Psi supplants Delta Upsilon as
the fraternity wrestling champs and
will add the winner's share, 100
points, to their total towards the All-
Year Trophy.
Herber Wins 'Pro'
Honors As Passer
NEW YORK, Dec. 15.-(P)-The
Green Bay Packers can boast of the
outstanding individual performer of
the season as well as the champion-
ship of the National Professional
football league.
Statistics given out today for the
1936 12-game season merely amount-
ed to a formal announcement that
forward passing honors were won by
Arnold (Flash) Herber of the Pack-
ers. He has been "in the bag" for
some time.
Ed Tesic of the Pittsburgh Pirates
finshed second to Herber.

LM Standings
Shows S.A.M.
Well In Lead
Since the start of interfraternity
athletic competition this fall Sigma
Alpha Mu, starting off with a bang,
has led the pack in the Intramural
standings without once dropping be-
hind. Garnering a total of 390 points
in all sports competed in to date,
they nave a healthy margin of 18
markers between them and the next
team, Phi Kappa Psi, with 372.
Following the Phi Psi's comes
Theta Xi with 344 points and close
behind is Theta Chi, speedball title
winner, with 342 points. Chi Psi, 14
pointsrbelow this was 328 seems to be
quite alone in fifth place as Psi Up-
silon, having collected 307 points is
some distance out of the first divi-
sion of the 10 highest.
Runner-up to Theta Chi in speed-
ball, Delta Upsilon has a two-point
margin over the volleyball champs,
Lambda Chi Alpha. The D.U.'s have
a total of 301 while Lambda Chi Al-
pha has 299. Chi Phi, with 298 ap-
pears to be coming up with only one
point separating it from the 299 of
Lambda Chi's.
Holding down the tenth place in
the standings, which includes all the
forty-odd fraternities, is Kappa Sig-
ma. Their 266 leaves them a com-
fortable distance from the eleventh
team and also quite a ways from the
ninth place squad.
Helen Stephens Is
No. I Woman Star
NEW YORK, Dec. 15.-()-Helen
Stephens, the Fulton, Mo., flash who
streaked down the Olympic 100-
meter stretch in 11.4 seconds and
broke all records for the metric cen-
tury, was acclaimed the year's No. I
woman athlete today in the sixth
annual poll conducted by the Asso-
ciated Press.
Miss Stephens' spectacular solo
dash and the swift anchor leg she
ran on the winning 400-meter Olym-
pic relay quartet crowned previous
performances at home where she
won three National A.A.U. champion-
ships, the 100-meter dash, discus
throw and shotput.

With vacation just a few days off,
the Intramural department is keep-
ing as busy as the proverbial paper
hanger, trying to organize teams,
make out schedules, run off finals and
in general, get things in perfect order!
for the heavy January month.
The All-Campus tennis tourna-
ment, which drew the large number
of entries it always does, was finally
completed Monday after running
since the start of the semester. Doug
Gregory defeated Harry Kasabach in
two straight sets 6-3, 6-4 to cop the
Another activity that will be moved
out of the way before the holidays is
fraternity handball. This sport, al-
so in the final stage, will see Phi
Beta Delta pitting mitts against Al-
pha Kappa Lambda for the cham-
pionship. Phi Beta Delta has al-
ways shown power in this game and
is favored to win.
Basketball, which usually draws
the largest number of intramural
contestants will be ready to start the
Monday following vacation. With
about 40 independent teams, 48 class'
A fraternity teams and 28 class B
fraternity squads entered, each team,
which is placed in a league, will play
one practice game with a team from
another league during the first week.
The schedule is expected to have
actual tourney play started by the
second week in January. The All-
Stars, Chi Psi, and Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon, are the defending champions
in the respective divisions.
One final activity, which will be
limited to the fraternities, is bowling,
starting right after vacation. All
matches will be played at the Union{
alleys and points will be given forj
the different places.
