Indiana Threatens Wolverine Bid For Big Ten Trac

Duel Between Cochran,

To Be Closest Event
(Continued from Page 1)
ron Piker and Smith should battle
it out for the first three places, with
the Wildcat rating a slight edge as
defending champion.
Husky Archie Harris is practically
conceded a pair of first places in the
shot put and the discus throw, hav-
ing bettered the Conference record
by more than three feet in the latter
event. Michigan's George Ostroot is
being counted on for at least six
points in these two events with a
good chance to do better.
Half-Mile Field Strong
Featuring one of the best half-mile
fields in Conference history, the 880-
yard run is expected to develop into
a dog-fight among a quartet of mid-
die-distance stars. Ed Buxton, of
Wisconsin, defending champion,
rates a slight edge over the Hoosiers'
Campbell Kane, who ran second to
him in the Indoor meet, Michigan's
Dye Hogan, who has turned in the
current outdoor season's best time
of 1:53.8, and Ohio's capable Les
Sophomore Kane is the odds-on
favorite to edge out Purdue's Ed
Holderman in the mile run with his
teammate, Wayne Tolliver, also a
pptential point winner. Michigan's
hopes are pinned on Ed Barrett and
Karl Wisner, third and fifth respec-
tively last year.
Cochran In Hurdles
Michigan's Stan Kelley twill be
among the leaders in the 120-yard
high hurdles, but Wisconsin's Ed
Smith will be favored to cop the
event. In the 220-lows Cochran
again is the choice with Kelley and
Don Olsen of Illinois rated highly.
Possessing a chance to shatter the
Conference high jump record, Wol-
verine Don Canham rates a wide
margin over his rivals with North-
western's Jim Smith his closest com-
With the final outcome of the
meet likely to be hanging on the
result, the mile relay winds up the
championships. Michigan, with a
veteran quartet, is favored to retain
its last year's victory, and perhaps
set a new relay mark.
Dorm Crown
Depends Upon
Tennis Match
The race for the Residence Hall
all-sports championship has re-
solved itself into a two-team con-
test. Winchell House has completed
the season's play with a 1176 point
total, but Lloyd House, with its
tennis team still in the running, is
seriously threatening.
Lloyd's quarter-final victory, 2-1,
over Fletcher Hall Wednesday sent
them into the semi-finals against
Williams House. A win in this match
will give them 83 points for a total
of 1188 and the title. Winning the
tennis crown would give them 100
Wenley House, with its season
completed, has a 1050 point total
for the third spot in the standings.
Fletcher, with the tennis points still
to be added, is safe in fourth with
940 points.

even make the trip with the squad.
Davie Nelson will spell Evashevski
in the Michigan oufield.
Lyle Bond, winner of his last four
Big Ten engagements, will start to-
day's game for Michigan. Opposing
Bond will be Stan Sowa, veteran
left-handed knuckle-ball artist who
pinned a 5-4 defeat on the Wolver-
ines last year.
Sowa's Record Good
Sowa has lost but one game in three
years of Conference competition. The
Gopher southpaw's lone setback came
at the hands of Northwestern early
this season. Since then, Sowa has
chalked up shutout triumphs over
Wisconsin and Chicago.
Jack Barry is slated to take the
mound against Minnesota tomorrow
with Bill Anderson, Minnesota's sen-
sational sophomore hurler, as his ad-
versary. Anderson recently blanked
Wisconsin for nine innings before he
doubled home the winning run. Big
Bill's only other venture was a, two-
hit triumph over Chicago.


E(var 'vski

With Michigan's ace two-miler,
Capt. Ralph Schwarzkopf out of
the Conference meet, Irv Liljegren,
Minnesota distance star, ranks as
the favorite to cop the two-mile
event Saturday. The Gopher has
turned in 9:28.5 for the distance
already this year.

Little Davie Nelson, Coach Ray
Fisher's number one utility infield-
er, is moving to the outfield today
replacing the injured Forest Eva-
shevski for the Wolverines' two-
game series with Minnesota. Eva-

to an injured wrist.

No-Hit Victory 1.uts Team
In Finals With Theta Xi
In a semi-final game yesterday,
Phi Kappa Psi defeated Delta Kappa
Epsilon, 9-1, to enter the finals
against Theta Xi. Howard Weber,
Phi Psi pitcher. twirled a no-hit
game with the only Deke run coming
on a freak play in the fifth inning.
Ray Dwyer, Deke hurler, hit a
long ball to left center and the Phi
Psi's left and center fielders collided
while going for it. The center field-
ers, however, touched the ball and
it was scored as an error.
Delta Sigma Delta beat Alpha Chi
Sigma, 6-2, to earn the right to meet
the Law Club in the finals of the
Professional Fraternity League. The
Delts sport a flashy infield, with the
keystone combination of Dave Jones
and Ed Rudd, former Michigan State
stalwarts, sparking its play. Ed Pool
was the winning twirler.
Delta Theta Phi won the third
place title in the Professional Fra-
ternity League as they whipped Al-
pha Omega, 8-4. Phi Chi walloped
Delta Sigma Phi, 21-5, to take the
third place crown in this league.
Willard Klunzinger, former Mich-
igan State net star, won the grad-
uate tennis championship yesterday
as he defeated Richard Prakken,
7-5, 7-5.

nois. When he took the court against
Crain this afternoon, he was suffer-
ing from a slight cold. Despite this
handicap, however, he took the first
set from Crain at 6-3, came back in
the second set after he was down 1-4
to take five straight games and the
match. Tobin's second round op-
ponent will be Sherwood Goerenstein
of Wisconsin who disposed of Vic
Filimon of Ohio State, 6-3, 6-0.
Capt. Sam Durst had to confront'
with Michigan's traditional "luck of
the draw" as he drew Ed Von Sein
of Minnesota, who was seeded sec-
ond behind Northwestern's Seymour
Greenberg. Von Sein, a comparative
unknown to the Michigan players,
had his ground strokes in perfect
working order as he defeated Durst,
6-3, 6-1. Greenberg, favorite to win
the Big Ten singles title, gave Art
Nielsen of Wisconsin but 15 points
as he blasted him off the court 6-0,
Gamon Takes Point
Moved down to the number three
spot in the lineup due to the shift of
Tobin, Tom Gamon came in for his
share of today's laurels as he came
back after losing the first set to take
Jerry Rosenthal of Ohio State, 1-6,
6-4, 6-4. Two weeks ago, Rosenthal
had beaten Harry Kohl in a dual
meet, 6-1, 6-1, and was expected to
beat Gamon today, but not to be
worried by previous scores, Gamon
brought Michigan a much needed
Wayne Stille was lucky enough to
draw an unseeded player, but found
himself across the net from a worthy
opponent. The match went to three
sets before Stifle won out, 6-2, 3-6,
7-5. Tomorrow Stille faces John
Lewis of Ohio State, who beat Stille
two weeks ago in a dual meet. The
outcome of this match will have an
important bearing on the final stand-
ings of the Wolverines.
Brewer, Jeffers Lose
Bob Brewer struggled valiantly for
three sets before he finally succumbed
to Roger Bush of Illinois, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
At number six singles, Bob Jeffers,
who was expected to be seeded, found
himself the victim of some shifting
about and debating by the coaches
and was not given a favored spot. To
top it off, he drew Beryl Shapiro
'first seeded player from Northwes-
tern as his first opponent. Jeffers
had four set points in the first set,
but couldn't win it. He lost finally,
7-5, 6-3.
In the doubles the Wolverines
moved forward by winning at the
second and third spots. Tobin and
Stille easily defeated Bob Sandler
and Bob Wollenweber of Iowa, 6-1,
6-1, while Jeffers and Kohl beat Bob
Bruce and Charles Eck of Wisconsin,
6-4, 9-7.

There is nothing unusual about a
freshman reporting for the football
squad without having had any pre-
vious experience, but when a fresh-
man reports for the team and says
that his experience has been limited
to playing Rugby in England, that
is an altogether different thing. Thus
it was that freshman Phil Sharpe,
an end, reported for football last fall
with the memory of his playing days
at St. Edwards School in England,
still lingering in his mind.
Sharpe's hopes for numerals were
soon shattered 8by an injury sustained
early in the season. This spring,
however, Big Phil, who tips the
beams at 185 pounds and must look
down six feet to see his toes, again
reported for practice. Phil was soon
recognized by Coach Crisler as a
very promising end prospect, though
handicapped by his lack of know-
ledge of the game.
Played In England
Originally, Phil came from Lake-
wood, Ohio, but spent his high school
days with his parents in England.
It was there that he became inter-
ested in Rugby, and played on the
team that many rated as one of the

Woman Trouble. . .
There are big things on the Mich-
igan sports calendar this weekend.
The track team opens its title stand.
Leroy Weir's tennis squad has a seri-
ous clash on its hands.
But that's all trivia, neighbors,
pure and simple trivia, as insignifi-
cant as a withering dandelion on
Ferry Field when it comes to the
really big things that are going on
behind the Michigan sports scene.
Yep, you'll forget all about the
track and tennis battles when
we tell you about the question
that the Board In Control of
Athletics must answer before
many more suns set.. One of the
gravest problems in Wolverine
history has come up. The most
momentous question thAt the
Board has ever attempted to
settle is now staring them in the
face. They've got a lot to do,
those Board members have. The
future of Michigan sports rests
in their hands. It all depends on
what the decision they make con-
cerning this important question.
"Shall we have gals leading the
cheers, or shall we not?" That is
the question, dear neighbors, and
frankly it has the Board so worried
that some of its more fragile mem-
bers are turning gray and losing
sleep. They haven't eaten since it
was placed on the agenda last Satur-
Well, we felt sorry for the puzzled
Board, and decided to do some in-
vestigating of our own yesterday to
help out the cause. We strolled
around campus wearing our newly
pressed Daily Double touting pants,
carrying a microscope and pipe and
growing a beard. Sort of incognito,
you know.
We stopped everybody that came
along, but nobody would talk. In-
formation was hard to get. They
thought we were panhandling. Fin-
ally, a little kid, probably from Ann
Arbor Grammar School, stopped and
gazed. We sprang the question.
"Do you favor gal cheer lead-
ers," we asked.
"Yep," he said, and we chalked
one up on the left hand column.
He was the only soul from the

fifth column to Ypsilanti who
would say yes or no, so we
slouched along back to headquar-
ters and decided maybe the phone
would do the trick. We closed
our eyes and opened the telephone
book, and our thumb was on the
name Sir. Toby Belch. It wasn't
the telephone book. We had
picked up Shakespeare.
Finally we called a number. An
elderly sounding woman answered.
"Your occupation," was the question.
"Dean of Women at Saline College
for Wayward Women," was the re-
We sprang the momentous question.
"Oh, it would be wonderful. I've
always wanted to do something like
that. I'm only 68 now, but I bet I'd
look swell in front of all those peo-
ple. Where can I try out?"
We hung up.
We called another number. A
man answered, so we hung up
again. Then we decided to get in
touch with Terrible Tommy, the
Harmon boy. He was all in favor.
As he explained it, "Once I was
running along the sidelines. I
got tackled. That was just once,
see. But anyway I fell right into
the arms of a cheer leader. Gosh,
if he would have been she."
Well, we tried just one more num-
ber. It was the ping pong champion
at Eloise. "Haw, haw," he said in a
very intelligent manner. "Can't you
just imagine it. Four out of five
gals are beautiful, and the fifth
would be a Michigan cheer leader."
We gave up and left it to the Board
to decide.
The Annual M Club Banquet
will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday
in the Michigan Union. All mem-
bers wearing their M sweaters
will be admitted free.
