Intramural Finals At Open House

Theta Xi Wins
Phys Eds Are Independent
Champions; Sigma Chii
Takes Swim Crown
(By The Freshman Sports Staff)
Two thousand people braved icy
pavements last night to watch the
Intramural Department stage its
Twelfth Annuel Open House, a pan-
orama of athletic activity in a sports-
packed three hours of championship
playoff matches, all-campus tourna-
ments, and exhibitions.
Highlighting the evening's play was
a trio of championship basketball
games. Overcoming an 18-14 deficit,
the Phys Eds shellacked the Wolver-
ines, 46-23 to gain possession of the
Independent cage crown. Mike Rod-
nik, Phys Ed forward, was high scor-
er with 14 points and Clint Mahlke
chipped in with 12. For the Wolver-
ines Jack Barry, ace pitcher on the
Varsity baseball team, scored nine
Christensen Stars
Theta Xi, runner-up last year, up-
set Sigma Nu, 23-21, in a see-saw
battle to win the Class A Interfrater-
nity cage title. Ed Christensen, of
Theta Xi, was high scorer with nine
points, while Don Bruce, with seven,
and Lawton Hammett, with six
points, starred for the losing quintet.
Dick Bennett, Phi Kappa Psi for-
ward, flipped in a field goal in an
overtime period to enable his team to
edge out the Phi Delta Theta quintet,
16-14, in the Class B Interfraternity
basketball championship. Al Wistert
and Larry Wickter dominated play
for the losers, while Dick Bennett
and Ted Kennedy were outstanding
for the Phi Kappa Psi five.
Sigma Chi's tank team nosed out
Phi Kappa Psi, 19-17, to take the In-
terfraternity swimming crown. Tri-
gon won the Interfraternity water
polo championship, sinking Psi Up-
silon, 3-0. In the residence hall dual
meets a strong Wenley team beat
Williams, 38-22, and Lloyd House
trimmed Michigan House, 36-22.
Varsity Gives Exhibition
Michigan's varsity diving team,
composed of Capt. Hal Benham,
Ralph Pyszynski, Jack Wolin and
Strother Martin gave an exhibition
of high board diving, and the Uni-
versity frosh tank squad swam sev-
eral exhibition races.
In a special High School relay race
Ann Arbor High's 200-yard medley
relay team bettered the existing state
record of 1:40.6 by swimming the
distance in 1:38.2.
Six all-campus wrestling cham-
pions were crowned in the finals of
the grappling meet. Tom Goodkind
threw Med Schlemenson to grab the
heavyweight title in the feature
match of the evening. Douglas Jeff-
ery gained the quickest fall when he
pinned Frank Warner in 51 seconds
to clinch the 155-pound crown. Har-
ris Rappaport decisioned Stanley Oh-
berg, 11-6, in the 145-pound match,
and Ralph Wilson outclassed Bill
Bestimt, 9-1, at 136 pounds. Bill
Leeder won from Ralph Ditchik and
Arthur Bennet took Phineas Nor-
man by forfeits in the 121 and 165
pound divisions respectively.
Hammet Takes Tennis Title
Lawton Hammett won the all-cam-
pus tennis singles championship for
the second consecutive year, downing
Harry Kohl, 6-2, 6-1. Driving deep,
following into the net and volleying
winners consistently, Hammett won
as he pleased. Hammett also distin-
guished himself by representing Sig-
ma Nu on its championship volley-

ball team and on its runner-up bas-
ketball five.
In the all-campus finals of the bad-
minton tournament Jack Pequegnat
downed Dick Levy, 15-4, 15-11.

and Sumner Myers of the Mathe-
matics Department, staged a fast
exhibition match for squash enthus-
iasts. In fraternity matches Chi Psi
beat Sigma Alpha Mu, 3-0, Phi Kap-
pa Psi nosed out Psi Upsilon, 2-1,
and Delta Tau Delta edged Kappa
Sigma, 2-1.
Sigma Nu trounced Alpha Omega,
9-15, 15-8, and 15-3, to annex the
all-campus volleyball tournament.

YMCA,.4-1, in an exhibition match
and the local team also divided two
contests with the Chinese Students
deTuscans Give Exhibition
Mr. and Mrs. deTuscan, internat-
ionally-renowned fencers, gave two
exhibitions of their skill. They de-
monstrated Mr. deTuscan's inven-
tion of the electric foil which prom-
ises to rejuvenate fencing as a pop-
ular sport.

Ross Elected
Puck Captain;
Letters Given
(Continued from Page 1)
It was definitely "Charley Roas
Night" as the hard skating junior
from Boston literally melted the ice l
to score three goals and matched the
offensive work with a superb game
on defense.
All evening long he was skating
up the ice, splitting the Paris de-
fense and peppering the Canadian
goalie with his bullet-like drives.
It was characteristic of his play all
season, spirited, hard driving, re-
As Coach Lowrey put it last night,
"He's deserving of it. Charley show-
ed the most improvement of anyone
out there this year. He is always
trying, and that's what counts."
The letter winners, in addition to
captain-elect Ross, include his de-
fense partners Larry Calvert, '40,
Orono, Maine, and Bert Stodden, '41,
of Ann Arbor, and centers Paul Gold-
smith, '42, Swampscott, Mass., and
Fred Heddle, '41, Ann Arbor.
Also awarded letters were wingmen
Jim Lovett, '41, Detroit, Gil Samuel-
son, '41, Willoughby, O., Robert Col-
lins, '42, Detroit, John Corson, '42,
Birmingham, and William Canfield,
'42, of Detroit. Capt. Spike James,
'40, goalie from Ottawa, Ont., re-
ceived his third letter.
Freshman numeral awards will be
announced later in the week.
Michigan Wins College

Michigan won its second intercol-
'egiate billiard title in 10 days when
it annexed the three-cushion cham-
pionships yeseterday.
The meet was conducted by tele-
graph and 13 colleges participated.
Michigan's total of 98 points was fol-
lowed by Wisconsin with 92. Last
week, the Wolverines annexed the
pocket billiards tourney.
The winning team was composed
of Stanton Babcock, '41, Richard
Wakefield, '43, Robett Levine, '41,
Wayne Stille, '42, and Stephen Pol-
enshuk, '41.

crowned world champion pocket bil-
liard, will play a special match with
a local star and then play fancy
shots and give free instruction.


Work Tunis Natator Hutchens
Into Big Ten Furlong Champion


Or So He Says . .
OUR Columbus correspondent, Don
Smith who pens an erudite sports
column for the Ohio State Lantern,
has been making his usual astute ob-
servations of late. His particular{
piece de non resistance this year has
been Francis Heydt, Wolverine swim-
mer who transferred from Iowa last
At the time of Heydt's transfer
we presented certain letters to
Matt Mann from Dave Armbrus-
ter, Iowa coach, which said "I
place no blame whatsoever at
your door for Heydt's transfer."
This did, we thought, and still
think; completely absolve Matt
Mann of any complicity in bring-
ing Heydt here.
When Iowa came here to swim two
weeks ago, it appeared to Heydt that
to swim against his old team and
teammates might reopen old sores. So
he decided not to swim.
But now back to our Columbus cor-
respondent who keeps us informed on
Michigan swimming. He says that
because Heydt didn't want to swim
against his old teammates' and room-
mate Al Armbruster in the dual meet
that "Coach Mann is afraid Heydt
might see Armbruster before Friday
(at the ,Big Ten meet) and, again re-
fuse to face his old buddie from
Iowa." Then our Columbus corres-
pondent informs us that "Heydt is
splash shy, afraid of the water."
We are grateful for this informa-
tion. It explains something that
bothers us. This is no doubt the rea-
son why Heydt won the Conference
backstroke title and broke the old
record of 1:38.1 b? 1.3 seconds in doing
it.He's so afraid of the water that
he swims as fast as he can so as to
get out as quick as possible. And

evidently, with Heydt, that's pretty
LINE COACH Clarence Munn has
some of his linemen down at the
Field House working on dummies.
Spring training? "Naw," replies Mr.
Munn, "just a little instruction."
Jack Meyer, quarterback two years
ago but out with an injured leg last
year, is one of this getting a "little
IIHE medals for the high school
clinic to be held here this month

ministration. On every one "schol-
astic" is spelled "scolastic."
Alt artes. Ah scientas. Ah veri-
tas. Al wilderness-someone is
in it.
Stan Kelley may yet be a Big Ten
champion. Pictures of the finish of
70-yard high hurdles race at Chicago
last weekend show that the silent
senior was tied with Ed Smith of
Wisconsin although tlic judges gave
the nod to the Badger.
The only hitch to the pictures is
that they were taken from Kelley's
side of the track and Smith isi ob-
scured. The pictures are now in the
hands of the Games Committee and
a decision is expected soon.
Frosh Record Falls
Another freshman track record was
broken yesterday afternoon as four
yearling half-milers lopped almost
13 full seconds off the former two-
mile relay record to run 7:59.5. Quen-
tin Brelsford led off with 1:58.9, only
three-tenths off the record set last
week by Bob Ufer. Ufer ran the
second leg in 1:58.8, John Purdue in
2:00.8 and Dave Matthews finished
up with 2:00.9.

There is a changed man around the
I-M Pool there days.
Lanquid, unaspiring, lackadaisical
just two weeks ago, husky Ed Hutch-
ens got his chance in Columbus last
weekend and with the pressure on
suddenly turned from a "could-have-
been" to a Western Conference cham-
On The Easy Rhoad
Everyone knew Hutchens was good.
They always used to say that he could
be as great a swimmer as he wanted
to be. With native ability on a par
with that of anyone who has ever
reported to Matt Mann, Hutchens
chose the easy road. He just wanted
to make the swimming team. That
was enough. Being a champion was
too much work.
For two years Ed was just another
swimmer on the great Michigan
teams. A state champ in high school,
the star sprinter of the frosh team,
Hutchens never seemed to improve
once he entered collegiate ranks.
Fourth in the Big Tens, fifth in the
National Collegiates and that was
the extent of the Hutchens record
until last weekend.
A Change Comes
When Matt started working his na-
tators for the Western Conference
meet this year, Ed got down to busi-
ness. But his change went unnoticed
until the day before the team left.
Matt timed him over the 220-yard
distance and the results were amaz-
ing. Hutchens had turned in a per-
formance not far off the Western
Conference mark.
But with Columbus came lobar
pneumonia for Welsh, and the Wol-
verine camp was a dismal one. Their
hopes in the 220 dropped like Al
Patnik in one of his better dives. Ohio
had Johnny Patton, a sensational
sophomore, and there wasn't too much

confidence in the Wolverine lockerI
room when Hutchens expressed his
hopes , . . "Don't worry, Matt, I'll
take him for you."
And Ed did. He led the qualifiers
the first night, and came triumphant-
ly back the following eve to become
a Western Conference champion.
Praise For' The Vietor
Everyone on the Michigan bench
rose and cheered as their new-found
worker carne churning home in 2 17.2.
Matt Mann had nothing but praise
for the senior. "I knew he could do
it. It only depended on when he
would start working."
But Hutchens isn't through. To-
morrow night he meets Wayne's great
star, Andy Clark, in the furlong feat-
ure of the Wolverine-Tartar dual
meet at the I-M tank.
Clark will be favored tomorrow,
but Hutchens has been working this
week . . . and anything might hap-
pen when Hutchens works-and says
"Don't worry, Matt. I'll take him
for you."
