himself and everyone else as well,
qualified in the tourney. Reconsid-
ering its choice for golf letterwinners,
the athletic department awarded
Leidy a varsity letter for his out-
standing performance in national
competition.
The only way Coach Courtright can
account for Leidy's phenomenal suc-
cess is that the captain-elect was
what is known in golfing circles as
a "late starter," deceiving observers
as to his talent in the early part of
the season, but coming up with stellar
play when he got a "better feel of
the ball" later in the season.
And now, this year, Leidy. has kept
up his reputation of being one of the
best golfers in Ann Arbor by some
outstanding play in the current Big
Ten campaign. Doing much damage
to opponent's scores, the big Wol-
verine has been highly efficient in the
wood department, using his powerful
swing to good advantage on the long
courses that the Yellow and Blue team

pected to come through with big
things for Michigan in matches to
come.,
Inmconjunction with the team cap-
tain election, Coach Courtright an-
nounced the freshman numeral win-
ners for the current season. Winners
of awards are: Fred Brewer, High-
land Park; Bill Brooks, Niagara Falls,
N.Y.: Dick Emery, St. Joseph; Les-
lie Lemak, Highland Park; Paul
Stahr, Piqua, Ohio; Bill Stewart,
Parkers Landing, Pa.; Johnny Win-
ters, Quincy, Ill.; Jacques O'Donnell,
Bronxville, N.Y.; and 'Bill Lerdof.
Frutig May Enter Army

playing a season with the Green Bay
Packers of the National Professional
Football League.
As yet Frutig 'has not signed the
contract sent him by the Packers.

in order to obtain a diploma in Sep-

Daily Sports Editor
IAJOR LEAGUE scouts were asf
common as bluebooks around Ann
.rbor yesterday . . headquarters
'ere at Ferry Field at the Wolverine- X
alifornia game . . . and all eyes were I
n Michigan's 20-year-old sophomore r
ensation, Dick Wakefield.
Most prominent were Bill Brad-
ley of the Cleveland Indians, Wishs
Egan of the Detroit Tigers and Joe(
Cambria of the Washington Sena-t
tors . . . all are angling for the
services of Wakefield and they want
him bad ... they act in a manner
slightly reminiscent of the fellow
who never dared let his right hand1
know what his left was doing . . .
none wants to let the other get 1
the jump on him . ..they .walke
around with a disarming smile on
their faces and an intense secret1
worry in their hearts . . . it's worse
even than a journalist with a scoopI
to cover up.
[ ATEST REPORTS have it that
Dick will receive between $18,000Y
tnd $25,000 for signing . . . but those1
re just rumors thus far.. . althought
>retty well confirmed ones . . . it's
:ertain that the powerful Chicagoan
s a much sought after young lad
. at least a dozen scouts showed
enough interest in his slugging skill
o sit through the Northwestern series
ast week .
Dick declares that he has no
special preference concerning his
future employers . . . money talks,
he says, and whichever club has the
loudest shout will win . . . he does
view the Cleveland Indians in a [
favorable light, though, as well asI
the Cubs, Reds, and Tigers . . .
some of the Brooklyn fans up hereI
at The Daily - and there are moreI
than a few - are wiring McPhail£
and Durocher tonight.
CATCHING UP WITH THE MAIL-
.AG: "Two observant sports fans,"
elf-styled, sent in a rather interest-
ig item which was printed in one of
he Detroit papers concerning Don
anham's new job at Western Mili-
ary Academy in Alton, Ill., which,
icidentally, he isn't sure he'll accept
ow ...tihe paper rather incn-
eniently forgot to insert column
ules with the result that the story
ame out like this:
ANN ARBOR, May 24.-Donald
Military Academy located in Al-
Canham, retiring captain of the
ton, Ill., to coach there next year,F
Michigan varsity track team, has'
Canham wil coach track and ac-r
cepted and offer from Western
teach history and sociology. He also
exuects to jum in several of firstI
of the graduating trackmen East-F
ern indoor meets during to em-I
bark on matrimony - etc... .
Another fellow - or perhaps a girl
- anonymous, at any rate, writes in
a say that The Daily slighted West-
rn State when it reported that Cal-
ornia and Michigan were playing for
he championship of the West .
vhich is a very good point, and a cor-
ect one . . . we also thank Irvin
/etz for his helpful explanation ---
nd sorry it can't be printed.

Bill Steppon, who was next up, to
get a safe clout, but on the second
pitch he hit a weak grounder to the
pitcher. With a sure force - out at
home, Kirtlan threw high to his
catcher, forcing the California back-
stop to take his foot off the plate.
Christenson scored on the. play and
the bases remained loaded.
With none out, the sacks filled, and
slugging Dick Wakefield coming up,
it looked as though Michigan was in
position to score some more runs,
but Kirtlan tamed the outfielder's
bat by forcing Wakefield to hit an
easy pop fly for the first out of the
inning. Bud Chamberlain obliged the
visitors by hitting into a fast double
play to end the inning.
Michigan picked up its winning
runs in the seventh frame when Muir
hit a tremendous drive to deep cen-
ter field for a triple, and scored on
a single by Sofiak. Michigan's little
shortstop then started to heckle the

Final counting of the fraternity
sports total finds Phi Delta Theta in
first place with a lead of 195 points.
Scoring the largest total number of
points on record, 1431, the Phi Delts
showed strength in every sport, al-
though they took championships in
only two, speedball and squash.
In second place with a total of
1236 points is Sigma Chi. With titles
in three sports, both A and B basket-
ball and golf, the Sigma Chis made
a game bid for the final lead, but
the Phi Delts' sheer power proved too
much for them.
Statistics show that only 10 fra-
ternities entered teams in all 19
sports. Also it is found that only one
man, Herb Whipple, athletic manager
of Beta Theta Pi, participated in 15
sports during the year. Last year's
Shute Scores Subpar
69 T'o Lead U.S. Open
FORT WORTH, Tex., June 5-(P)
-They paired Denny Shute with
Jimmy Demaret for the first round of
the 45th U.S. Open Golf Champion-
ship today, and it appeared to be
foreordained that sober, sedate Den-
ny would play his 18 holes in the
shadow cast by the flamboyant Tex-
an with the grin as broad as his native
state.
But it didn't work out that way.
When the opening day's firing was
finished over the pinch-bottle fair-
ways of the 7,005-yard Colonial
Club Course, Shute was leading the
field of 163 starters with a 69, the
only subpar score posted.

GRADUATION GIFTS ARE
T HE FEATURE FOR JUNE
By DORIS PRICE
Before making suggestions of
records and albums as graduation
gifts, we'd like to answer a ques-
tion concerning the Tschaikowsky
Piano Concerto, played in the re-
cent movie, The Great Lie. There
are two recordings available at
present: the more widely known
is that played by Arthur Rubin-
stein and the London Symphony
Orchestfa for Victor, but the Col-
umbia recording, played by Egon
Petri and the London Philhar-
monic Orchestra is worth listening
to for the pur-
pose of decid- . .
ing whether you
prefer the fast-
er tempo of the
former to Petri's
slower tempo..
Incidentally,
both Vladimir
Horowitz and
Jose Iturbi,m
their concerV [
peformances of
this season,
have demon-
strated their
preference for DORIS PRICE
the faster tem-
po. An interesting announcement
concerning this magnificent con-
certo will be made in this column
in the near future.
