luring Orientation
Freshmen and other new students
in the University will get their first
opportunity to become acquainted
with the fine facilities offered by the
Intramural Sports Buildings, when the
annual Orientation Week Sports Pro-
gram gets under way this afternoon
at 4:30.
The Sports Program is so arranged,
that individuals may either take part
in organized games, or may partici-
pate informally in activities of their
choice. The organized meets and tour-
naments will be carried through to
completion, that is until champions
have been determined.
Ten Equal Groups
The new students reporting at the
Intramural Sports Building will be
divided into ten equal groups dur-
ing the three day" program. A staff
representative will take charge of
each group, and each individual will
be given an opportunity to partici-
pate in one or more of the following
recreaetional activities: badminton,
codeball, dart baseball, horseshoes,
necatos, paddleball, squash, table ten-
nis and volley ball.
The groups will rotate from one
sport to another, thus allowing all
the individuals an opportunity to try
a number of the newer sports on the
program. For the activities mentioned
above, all equipment will be furnished
by the Intramural Department.
All Activities Open
There will be opportunity for par-
ticipation in any of the 34 activities
offered by the Sports Department
during the course of the afternoon.
Informal basketball games will be
under way throughout most of the
afternoon. Any student may take part
whenever he desires to do so.
All those interested in boxing
should report to Coach Martin Lew-
andowski, who will be in the boxing
room. Coach Lewandowski will be glad
to assist anyone who wants instruc-
tion or a workout.
The splendid handball facilities
available at the Sports Building, make
this sport one of the most popular
in the all-year program. Regulation
equipment will be furnished this
afternoon to all experienced players
wishing a workout. An instructor will
be on hand to assist beginners.
Two of the handball courts will be
reserved for codeball, a game similar
to handball except as to the equip-
ment used. In this new game, played
with the feet, a six inch inflated rub-
ber ball is used. It is a recognized
A.A.U. sport and two national cham-
pionships have already been held

tation Week at 5 p.m. The events
will include: 50 yard free style, 100
yard free style, 50 yard breast stroke,
50 yard backstroke, and diving. First

Known for years as the "black
sheep" of Michigan sports, Michigan's!
Varsity tennis team under the dirfec-
tion of Coach Leroy Weir, arose from
their doldrums to compile a rather
impressive record of 10 matches won
and eight lost in dual meets last
spring. This season, with five letter-
men returning, augmented by a fine
sophomore crop, prospects are bright.
for an even better showing.1
Gaining a high ranking in the Big
Ten will be the Wolverines goal this
spring, and will be an extremely diffi-
cult task. Chicago and %Northwestern,
perennial favorites, have their teams
which finished one-two, last year,
practically intact. The Weirmen fin-
ished a dismal eighth last season, but
early indications point to their grab-
bing a higher notch.
Levenson, Cohen, Missing
Gone from the 1936 team are Cap-
tain Neil Levenson and Hank Cohen,
the latter high point scorer for the
year. However, in Captain-elect Don
Percival, John Kidwell, Steve Wool-
sey, Ed Morris, and Tom Slattery, all
lettermen, and Herb Cisco, an ex-
perienced reserve, Coach Weir has a
nucleus around which to build a
new team.

Then come the Sophomores, in the
words of Weir, "really an outstanding
group." Foremost among last year's
yearlings, striving for positions, is
Jim Tobin. While a schoolboy in De-
troit, Tobin won both the Metropoli-
tan High School and city Junior titles.
Jim is expected to make a determined
bid for a top ranking on the squad.
Work Starts Next Week
Sam Durst, left handed New York
;tar, Bob Jeffers, left-handed, How-
ard Bacon and Jim orter are other
first year men who'll be in the thick
of the fight for regular positions.
Coach Weir intends to start work-
ing with his squad immediately in or-
der to have it pared down to normal
size by the time the indoor season
gets under way. All those who intend
to try out for the team should plan,
to report to Coach Weir some after-
noon during the week of September
24 at the Intramural Building. This
includes both freshman and Varsity
