In one of the most stirring finishes
in the history of the Inter-Fraternity
Track Meet, Phi Delta Theta and
Sigma Chi tied for first place with
19% points after a two and one-half
hour struggle at Yost Field House
last night.
The outcome of the meet hinged
on the result of the broad jump,
which as it turned out determined
nothing, since both the Phi Delts
and Sigma Chi could garner but one
point apiece.
Tom Harmon, All-American half-
back, again demonstrated his versa-
tility as he won the 60-yard dash
for the second straight year in :06.7,
besides running away with the low
hurdles in :07.9 to capture top hon-
ors for the evening.
Phi Delts Retire Cup
By virtue of tying for first place,
Phi Delta Theta retired the Inter-
Fraternity track cup, as this is the
third consecutive year they have e5-
ther tied or won the championship.
Bob Ruetter was outstanding for
Sigma Chi winning the 440 and plac-
ing second in the 60-yard dash.
Ruetter's time in the 440 was very
close to the fraternity record as he
ran the event in 53.5. Norm Call,
Phi Gamma Delta and varsity half-
back, won the high hurdles in 09:00
flat as Lawrence Smith of Lambda
Chi Alpha ran a close second.
Smith, incidentally, led Lambda
Chi Alpha to third place by virtue
of his tying for first in the high
jump and placing second in the
high hurdles. Other winners were
Bob Bragg of Sigma Nu who hurled
the shot put 38 feet 10 inches,
closely followed by Al Wistert, Phi
Delta Theta's varsity tackle, who hit
38 feet 8 inches.
Sisman Wins Vault
Tiny Bernard Sisman, Phi Sigma
Delta, won the pole vault, jumping
11 feet 6 inches, as Chapman of Psi
Upsilon placed second at 11 feet
five inches.
In the 880 Lucius Hamilton, Sig-
ma Chi, and McDonald, Psi Upsilon,
ran one-two, while in the mile, Char-
les Newman, Lambda Chi Alpha,
edged out Apple of Phi Kappa Sig-
ma. The final results were Phi Delta
Theta and Sigma Chi tied for first
with 19% points, Lambda Chi Alpha
third with 10%4, and Phi Gamma
Delta placing fourth with 8.
We are happy to announce
of Sigma Phi Epsilon
as the winner of our recent slo-
gan contest.
"Keep ahead of your Fair"
was Doug's winning entry. His
award is $15 in services.
We thank all contestants for
the interest diisplayed in our
successful contest.

Considered one of the greatest
wrestlers ever to enter Michigan,
Harlan Danner, 155-pound Big
Ten champ, is given a strong chance
to win the national intercollegiate
title in the matches to be held at
Champaign this Friday and Satur-
atmen Prep
For Nationals
Lack Of Condition Is Chief
Worry To Coach Keen
A final week of hard drilling drew
near a close yesterday as varsity
wrestling coach Cliff Keen prepared
a five-man squad for the National
Intercollegiate championships atj
Champaign, Ill., this weekend. Lack
of condition in a team newly-recov-
ered from a series of injuries was the
Wolverine mentor's chief worry.
Big Ten Titleholders
Michigan's lopes for a national
championship, which are better than
a mediocre season would indicate,
will rest on the shoulders of three Big
Ten titleholders and two runners-up.
Capt. "Butch" Jordan, who licked
Ohio State's George Downes, victor
over Illini Sikich, for the Conference
heavyweight crown, will find unde-
feated George Chiga, of Oklahoma
A and M, a third tough obstacle in his
way at Champaign.
Don Nichols and Harland Danner,
Michigans other champions, will also
find a standout field against them in
the nationals. Nichols, victor in the
last act of his Conference feud with
Indiana's 175-pounder, "Tuffy" In-
man, at the Big Ten Meet, will find
the Hoosier back to plague him, aided
by Kansas State's Reyard and Eastern
Intercollegiate Champion Ernie Bortz,
of Penn State, among others.
Danner Rates Good Chance
Danner, one of the finest collegi-
ate wrestlers in the nation, will be
a good bet to add the national 155-
pound crown to his Big Ten title.
Emilio Bruno, ex-National AAU
champion from San Jose State, will
give him his greatest opposition.
Bill Combs, 145, and Jim Galles,
165 pounder, will complete the Wol-'
verine entry. Both men are rated
in the top brackets of their respective
classes, with Combs a favorite, bar-
ring a recurrence of his knee injury.

At 6:37 p.m. today, Michigan's
powerful swimming team entrains for
New Haven to defend its National
Collegiate crown in the 14th renewal
of the annual meet at the Payne
Whitney Exhibition Pool Friday and
Matt Mann named 15 of his Wes-
tern Conference champions to make
the trip. On the traveling list are:
Capt. Hal Benham, Strother Martin,
Jack Wolin, Charley Barker, John
Gillis, Bill Holmes, Gus Sharemet,
Tommy Williams, Ed Hutchens, Blake
Thaxter, John Sharemet, John Haigh,
Dick Riedl, Bill Beebe and Francis
The team will arrive in New Haven
early Thursday and will begin its
drive for a seventh straight title on
Friday morning when the 1,500-meter
freestyle race will be swum off. j
Six Events On Friday
All told, six of the 11 events will
be held on Friday with pre-season
strength and past performances pres-
aging the following results:
1500-meters freestyle: This is one
of those events that is difficult to
predict. Last year, Ohio's star back-
stroker, Harold Stanhope, was sur-
prisingly entered and proceeded to
capture.the title with a record smash-
ing 19:53.8 timing. Stanhope will
be back again and so will Eric Cutler
from Harvard who finished behind
him. But both of these distance per-
formers will have their troubles.
Wayne will have the great Andy
Clark, who is expected to grab first
honors while Rene Chouteau, the Yale
entry, will probably finish ahead of
Stanhope and Cutler. Fourth last
year, Buckeye Elwood Woodling will
battle it out with Michigan's Blake
Thaxter, among others, for the fifth
place point. .-
Barker Defends Crown
50-yard freestyle: This event, the
first on Friday night's show, will find
Michigan's sensational sprinter, Char-
ley Barker, defending his crown
against a large and speedy field.
Barker has turned in the best time of
the year, :23.2 and should win again.
Close behind will be Guy Lumsden
from Wayne who has done :23.4. Paul
Wolf of Southern California, third
last year, and Charley Cowell, the
Army sprinter who did :23.6 in the
Eastern Intercollegiate League meet.
Otherse who might gain points in this
event are Russ Duncan and Tom
Britton from Yale, Dick Fahrbach,
Northwestern, Bob Uercy, the Louisi-
ana State natator who won the South-
eastern Conference title in :23.3, Bob
Garrett, Army's No. 2r speedster, Flor-
ida's Chic Acosta, fourth last year,
and Walt Kelley, Villanova.
150-yard backstroke: Al Vande
Weghe has won this race the past two
years and . appears headed for his
third straight title. His greatest
competition will come from Heydt,
the Michigan junior, and Big Ten
record holder with a 1:36.8 perform-
ance. The Wolverines also have Bee-
be, runner-up last year and sopho-
more Riedl to gain points, while Iowa's
Al Armbruster will also be among the
leaders. Joe Burns from Yale, third
last year, and Bill Griffin from Ken-
yon, fourth, will both be back. Art
Bosworth of Harvard along with two
other Eli entries, Ed Brueckel and
Bob White can do around 1:40.
Johnson Favored
200-yard freestyle: Howie Johnson,
the sensational Eli sophomore, with
consistent 2:12 performances appears
headed for top honors. He will be
followed by the same distance trio
that is expected to battle in the morn-
ing 1500-meter, Clark, Cutler and
Chouteau. Michigan's Ed Hutchens,
Bill Prew from Wayne, Jim Rood,
Florida, Eli's Willis Sanburn and
Johnny Patton and Stanhope from
Ohio will all be possibilities for the
fifth place point.
One-meter diving: Once again Ohio
has the class with its great duo, Al

Patnik and Earl Clark. Jimmy Cook
fiom Yale will be right in there, while
Michigan has Benham and Wolin to
battle it out with Bob Gardner of
Wayne, Tom Powell, the lanky North-
western star, and Ormond McClave
of Rutgers.

IRCd Sox Riiiiors ...
JAMES FARLEY, in tossing his hat
into the presidential ring, is
,laying every card in his attempt to1
:apture every possible vote. In ad-
herence to this new plan, he thought
he'd capture our ballot by dropping
this little billet in our mailbox. Poor
Jim--our vote is now irrevocably
lost to him.
Read on, MacDuff, and see what
we mean.
Dear Corner:
Feeling as we do that all culture
ends west of Worcester, Mass., we,
too, wishing to bring enlightenment
to the backwoodsmen, now take it
upon ourselves to prepare you for
a shock: By the time the Wells Far-
go next hits Detroit, Mich., the Amer-
ican League pennant will be trium-
phantly flying from the flagpole of
Fenway Park, home of the Boston
Red Sox.
From information given to us
by usually reliable sources close
to Thomas Jefferson Yawkey,
owner of the Gold Hose, we are
convinced that "Boston's own"
will undoubtedly clinch the flag
by July 4th, even while the De-'
troit Polecats fight a losing bat-
tle to cinch seventh place
from the hard-fighting Beau-
mont (Tex.) Panthers.
To start with the infield, we come
to modest, muscled James Emory
Foxx, who will surpass "Banana
King" Bonura to lead both leagues
in fielding. The boys of Beaver Troop
14 are counting upon their honorary
Eagle Scout, bicepwbulging, black-
smith-shouldered Double XX to blaze
new trails in batting.

At shortstop, Uncle Joe Cronin
will, like good wine, improve with
age. Moving on, vice-president
of the Boston Chapter of the
WCTU, James Patrick Tabor,
will, in addition to performing
his regular chores at third base,
sell peanuts, programs and sun
glasses in the left field bleachers.
As for the outfield: the best of the
DiMaggios (Uncle Galleazzo not in-
cluded) will be throwing perfect
strikes in from left field to Harvard
Yard; Flit Cramer will practice the
cornet in center field; and Thump-
ing Theodore Williams, the best out-
fielder since Ty Cobb, will drive so
many long drives into the right field
wall that it will take on the appear-
ance of mini cake splattered with
You ask us about our pitching
and catching staffs? Al, you
might well ask.
We remain, confident as ever,
The Culture Twins
WE won't bother to comment on
the letter-its errors are quite
obvious to even the most untrained
diamond eye. But we are thankful
for one thing at least and that is
that a Boston accent can't 'emerge
on paper. "Staff" is still "staff" and
not "stawf". For this we give thanks.
LNY rumors that the swimming
I team would swim, go by kiddie
car or hitch hike to Yale were defi-
nitely scotched today when it was
learned that day coach it was and
day coach it will remain as far as
transportation is concerned. But the
swimmers are still hoping against
hope that a reprieve, in the form of
a change in plans to pullman, will be
yet forthcoming.
Kuist Takes Rifle Honors
With 19 boys competing in the All
Campus Rifle shooting contest last
night, Blaine Kuist took top honors
with a total of 191 out of a possible
200 shots. Robert Ranker with 185
and Harry Altman with 184 won sec-
ond and third place respectively.
These totals were made from a stand-
ing position.

Despite rumors circulated by an
envious management of the Detroit
"American League 'Professional
Baseball Club,'" which is seriously
considering employing the 17th Pre-
cinct Hamtramck volunteer firemen
to back up Grandpaw Gehringer at
second, Bobbie Doerr will be playing
the infield practically alone this year.
To put the lie to these scoundrels,
Slammer Doerr, now wearing long
pants, will, moreover, be taking his
regular cuts at the plate.
