Sonja Goes Over ...
"SHE SKATES with a song in he
heart" is the way one of the 7,2 1
spectators at Sonja Henie's Detihit
debut Tuesday night described the
performance of the Norwegian beauty
who won the last Olympic figure-
skating championship. "Shergave
the impression of being gloriously
happy and having the time of her
life." I guess that is what being in
love with a sport does for one. In
direct rebuttal of some adverse pub-
licity released when Sonja left the
"Ice Follies' 'troupe in Chicago a
few weeks ago, the roly-poly little
blond seemed happy to oblige her au-
dience. She responded with 14 en-
cores, six of them after the display
of her Olympic routine. She is at
the Olympia in Detroit through Sat-
urday night of his week.
THERE SEEMS to be some dispute
concerning the status of Iowa's
Ray Walters in the collegiate swim-
ming world. The stocky junior from
Rockford, Ill., was Big Ten 50 and
100-yard free-style champion last
season and National Collegiate cham-
5ion at the shorter distances. Last
week-end he was eliminated in the
preliminaries of the 50 in the Con-
ference championships and when he
put all he had in the 100-yard event
finished a doubtful second behind
Michigan's Ed Kirar, who had not
opened up. Walters, Bob Mowerson
and Walt Tomski of Michigan, and
Hal Wolfson of Northwestern were
blanketed two yards behind Kirar,
and there are many who still think
Mowerson touched first-a far cry
from the Walters' performances of
last year. The jovial Ray threatened
the Michigan sprinters with: "Beware
at Minneapolis" and the Daily Iowan
speaks of "injured hand" and too
much competition during the dual-
meet season, but I think Walters is
through as far as beating Matt
Mann's crew of dash men goes. May-
be I'm wrong. We'll see at the Na-
tional Collegiates next week-end.
CHARLIE HOYT'S superbly bal-
anced track team is packing its
grips preparatory to seeking its
fourth consecutive Butler Relay
crown at Indianapolis, and therein
lies a story. It was sports editor
Bill Fox of the Indianapolis News
that told it last week-end when the
Varsity swimmers stopped through on
their way to Bloomington. Michigan
lost the championship of the coun-
try's greatest indoor relay carnival
to Indiana in 1933-by six points.
And there was blood in the eyes
of the men of Michigan. Indian-
apolis alumni had underwritten the
expenses of the Varsity thinclads, and
they announced at once that they
were3bringing the Wolverines back
in 1934- and not for more of the
same stuff. That was no idle boast.
Michigan beat Kansas by three points
that year-and has not lost the crown
since. That is quite a record in com-
petition as stiff as appears at Butler,
and I'm looking for Charlie's boys t
carry on.
CHASERS: Tom Haynie is silently

Included in all the 21 sports on the

lChi Psi's Win 'A' Title
'The main event of the evening, the
battle for the fraternity division "A"
basketball title went to Chi Psi by
virtue of their 25-17 win over Delta
Kappa Epsilon.
In the final quarter Chi Psi staged
a 13-point rally to clinch the title
although they were leading through-
out the game except for a tie score
at the end of the third period. The
Dekes' brilliant defense play enabled
them to come from behind at the
half to tie the score. Chi Psi, how-
ever, led by the Palmer brothers, Bob
and Jack, opened the final quarter
with four straight baskets and from
that point on were never even ques-
Bob Palmer led all scorers with 14
points while Pat Ratterman, Chuck
Menefee and Capt. Chris Everhardus
led for the Dekes. The game, a
rough one, saw 16 personal fouls
Wildcats Beat Flints
The Wildcats had a little too much'
stuff for the Flints and emerged with
a 28-17 victory in the finals of the
Independent basketball playoffs.
Bill Woolsey and Milo Sukup each
garnered 10 points for the winners
and were outstanding for their team.
Young also played a nice brand of
ball for the Wildcats, sinking a couple
of spectacular hook shots.
For the Flints, Earl Holloway and
Freddie Trosko played the best ball,
Holloway making six points to lead
his team in scoring. The Flints start-
ed out good but their shots did not1
go in and began hitting the basket
only when it was too late to close up
a big gap.I
Theta Xi Whips S.A.E. I
The other fraternity cnamplonship-
event on the card saw Theta Xi de-x
feat Sigma Alpha Epsilon for thex
title in the "B" basketball division by
a top heavy score of 15-4.
The S.A.E.'s were handicapped by
the lack of their star, Kinsey, but
opened the scoring by sinking a foulf
shot. This with another free throwx
completed the scoring in the first
period. In the second quarter theI
Theta Xi found their eye after Lest
Goda sank a long one and from thereI
on it was all Theta Xi. Goda andi
Chuck Norman, high scorer, starred1
for the winners, while Hagen and Bob
Campbell were best for the losers.i
Coleman Clark gave a demonstra-
tion of how table tennis should be
played and also some trick shots inG
the hour between the basketball
games. His style of play, sometimes
going 20 feet behind the table af-
ter shots, entertained the large crowd
which watched him.t
Bobby Hitt, 15-year old Plymoutht
horseshoe pitcher and state champ-
put on a show, which was enthusias-

Table Tennis Proves
Too Tough For Kocsis
Chuck Kocsis, captain of the
Michigan golf squad last year and
present intercollegiate champion,
turned his hand to table tennis
last night at the Intramural open
house and went down to a sting-
ing defeat.
Kocsis, quite a player in frater-
nity and novice circles, accepted
the challenge made by Coleman
Clark, former national champion,
who stated that he would give an
autographed book to whoever
could score eight points against
him. In addition Clark agreed to
sit on a chair while he played.
Kocsis didn't win the book-he lost
the contest 8-0.
The large crowd seemed to
trouble him as' he drove all of his
return shots into the net. Evident-
ly Chuck finds it much easier to
drive a white pellet over acres of
green grass than over a small
green net.
