Michigan Given
Three A.A.U.
Tank Positions
The University of Michigan again
took a large share of the aquatic spot-
light for 1937 when three Varsity
swimmers were named on the Ama-
teur Athletic Union's all-American
tank team.
Jack Kasley, co-captain of last
year's Varsity squad appears in the
line-up for the second consecutive
time, being placed on the 300-yard
and 300-meter medley relay teams in
the brast-stroke position. -He is
teamed with Adolf Kiefer, back-stroke
and Peter Fick, free-style.
Ed Kirar, captain of this year's
Wolverine tank crew, and Waldemar
Tomski both found places in the
440-yard free-style quartet. Both
men will be swimming for Michigan
this season and Tomski has yet an-
other year after this one in wech
to compete for Michigan.
It is interesting to observe that
the University of Michigan placed
more men than did any other college
or athletic club in the country. Ohio
State, the only other college to place
more than one man, saw their Al
Patnik in the low and high spring-
board diving and John Higgins in the
220-yard breast-stroke and '300-yard
individual medley make the team.
Gaining more than one position on
the team were Ralph Flanagan of
Miami who was named for the 440,
500, 880, 1500 meters and one-mile
event, Kiefer who found a place in
the medley and 100 meters and 150
yard backstroke and Fick of the New
York A.C. who placed in 100-yard
and 200-meter free-style as well as
the medley relay team.
Phi Delta Theta
Downs Chi Phi
By 13 -1 Score
Continuing their drive for the in-
tramural speedball championship,
Phi Delta Theta yesterday walked
over Chi Phi to the tune of a 13 to
1 score. On another field which was
slowly being covered with darkness
Chi Psi was able to stay one step
ahead of Pi Lambda Phi and finished
on the top side of a 7 to 5 score.
Led by Dave Hunn, the Phi Delts
dominated Chi Phi from the start of
the game to the finish. Hunn ac-
counted for six tallies, followed close-
ly by Don Brewer who scored four
points. Tom Harmon, Gordy Peter-
son and Bud Hoffman each made one
goal for the rest of the Phi Delt's
eleven points. The single Chi Phi
goal was made by P. Durfee.
As the Phi Delts were making vic-
tory decisive, Chi Psi had trouble
'trying to check a second half rally
of Pi Lambda Phi. Jim Rae, who
scored three points, was leading
scorer for the State Street team,
while Fred Greenwald and Bob Pal-
mer each pushed two points across.
By his defensive and scoring power
P. Soboroff was by far the out-
standing player for Pi Lambda Phi.
He made two tallies while Hoffman,
Elkes, and Lefkowich each accounted
for one point.

Beginning Of Relations
Between Two Schools
When Michigan's Junior Varsityi
football team travels to Detroit to-
morrow to play the Detroit Tech
eleven, it will be the first time in'
ten years that a Michigan grid team
has performed in Detroit, and it willr
also open athletic relations between
the Wolverines and Tech.k
Although Tech has been known to
turn out annually one of the strong-
est minor college elevens in the dis-
trict, they haven't been very impres-
sive in their previous appearances
this season.. They have managed to
win only one game, against Grand
Rapids Junior College, while losing
to Defiance and Capital.
Forces Greatly Strengthened
The Jay Vee forces have been
greatly strengthened this week with
the addition of Milo Sukup, who
was one the squad's most promising
sophomore backs in pre-season train-
ing but who has been inactive since
the start of the season due to in-
juries. He will probably alternate
with Captain Dave Gates at the tail-
back position. The latter has suf-
ficiently recovered from a knee in-
jury to see service.
Herman Ulevitch, 190 pound soph-
omore, who played a fine game at
guard against the Michigan State
reserves, is also on the shelf at
present with a bad knee, but should
be in shape by tomorrow.
Lineup Is Almost Set
In the backfield with Gates and
Sukup will be Lilburn Ochs at quar-
terback, Jack Kinsey at full, and
Al Ricketts at wingback. Don Kin-
gery who has performed well at all
backfield positions during, recent
practice sessions, will undoubtedly
see service.
In the line, the probable starters
are Fred Cushing and Paul Penvenne
at ends, Mel Kramer and Jack Wei-
ner at tackles, Ulevitch and Jerry
Belsky, at guards, and Tom Hutton
at center. In case Ulevitch is un-
able to start, Art Bennett, another
soph will replace him.
Detroit Tecn's onense is built
around Captain Casey Lopata, a
triple threat halfback. The team will
be without the services of its first
string ends Saturday, both Joe Krzy-
zostan and Alex Kovachevitch being
out of action due to injuries.
