Over Five Hundred Men Will
Compete in 20 Athletic Events
McClusky ro Play Merry ir AIll-Camipus
Tennis Finals; Trampoline Show Sched ii1
One of the outstanding sporting events of the year will be presented to-
night at 7:00 when the Department of Intramural Athletics stages its Fif-
teenth Annual Open House in the mammoth Sports Building before an ex-
pected crowd of 5,000 spectators.
The event, which celebrates the opening of the Sports Building in 1913,
will feature a galaxy of over 500 athletes participating in 20 indoor and out-

door sports.
In the main gymnasium the All-
campus tennis singles tournament
will be played off between Dean Mc-
Clusky and Ted Merry, winners of the
semi-final matches two weeks ago. Al-
though the pair is matched fairly
evenly, McClusky wins the nod as fa-
vorite for the crown. An exhibition
doubles match will be staged at 8:00
when Jack Hersh and Jim Evans team
to meet Bill Mikulich and Fred Wel-
Two exhibition basketball games
will be played when Greene House
pits their residence hall champions
against the Lloyd House five and,
later on in the program, when Phi
Rho Sigma, Professional Fraternity
League champs, play Delta Sigma
Highlight of the gala sports pag-
eant is the gymnastic exhibit to be
presented by Newton Lakon and his
troupe of trampoline artists from
Waterman Gym.
In the tank Alex Canja, and
"T-bone" Martin will present a div-
ing exhibition. Canja and Evans
are the number one and number
two divers on the varsity swimming
team and Martin, a naval returnee,
is a letterman from the 1941-42
tank squad.
On the ticket for 7:30 will be a fra-
ternity swimming meet with Chi Psi
vs. Phi Delta Theta, Delta Upsilon vs.
Sigma Phi Epsilon and the D.K.E.'s
slated to meet Beta Theta Pi. These
same fraternities will meet at 9:00 in
three water polo battles.
Boxing enthusiasts will have a
chance to see some of the best ama-
teur pugilists in action when Ed
Cochrane's group stages five exhibi-
tion bouts starting at 7:45. Two ex-
Golden Glove champions in the per-
sons of Lee Woodruff and Ron So-
ble are on the ticket along with the
best from Cochrane's boxing group
including Morrie Koblenz, Dick Mc-
Clure, Don Ayers, Ed Burns, and
"Satch" Setomer, North Carolina
Pre-Flight School champion.
Alternating with these bouts will
be two wrstling matches, the first
match featuring John Allred and
John Dreifus both from the varsity
team. Ray Dean and Herb Barnett,
lettermen from former Wolverine
mat squads, will clown through a
takeoff on a professional wrestling
match with plenty of grunting and
groaning for any blood-thirsty fans.
Five badminton matches, the
first in the all-campus tournament,
are on the card for 8:30 and will be
presented in the main gym. Anoth-

rinintI erioI iWil
Run for Six Weeks
If the persistent rumors flooding
the Michigan campus have any foun-
dation in fact, Coach H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler will have a great football
team next fall.
At one time or another in the past
three months many Wolverine greats
of the past few years have been re-
ported on their way back home to the
old alma mater for further schooling
and another crack at football. Just
how many will actually show up is a
mystery to Crisler right now.
Spring Practice Starts April 1
Not until April 1 when spring foot-
ball practice sessions actually begin
will the Wolverine mentor have any
idea of what his squad will look like.
Crisler hopes that the six-week train-
ing period will bring out all prospec-
tive gridders.
"Unless candidates seeking posi-
tions on the 1946 Michigan football
squad are prepared to report the
opening day and keep up constant at-
tendance during spring practice,"
Crisler stated, "they may find them-
selves seriously handicapped next
Six-week Period
The six-week training period will
include about 30 sessions. Practices
will be held five days a week. Crisler
indicated that the Maize and Blue
training table would be limited start-
ing with fall practice, Aug. 26, and
that insofar as possible, the squad
would be selected at the end of spring
"With summer practice discontin-
ued," Crisler emphasized, "spring
practice will provide the best oppor-
tunity for individual players to dem-
onstrate their ability and to receive
the benefits of thorough individual
100 Tryouts Expected
If the spring turnouts comes up to
prewar expectations, Crisler will
probably have a squad of 100 players
on hand. The varsity squad next fall
will number from 45 to 48 athletes.
Seventeen of last year's varsity
group will not be around this year due
to the draft, graduation and service

Da~ily Sports Editor
With six wins and a pair of losses
behind them, Michigan's swimmers
will close the book on dual competi-
tion at 8 p.m. today when they in-
vade Detroit Northwestern High
School pool to clash with Wayne Uni-
versity's natators.
Coach Matt Mann's Wolverine
squad drowned Wayne here last
month, 56-28, in a meet which saw
the Maize and Blue walk off with
seven firsts on the nine-event card.
The Tartar's only wins came when
their ace, Bill Prew, took both the
50- and 100-yard freestyle sprints.
Prew Is Wayne's Threat
Prew will present Wayne's only seri-
ous challenge again tonight. To op-
pose him Mann will probably call on
his two sprinters, Dick Weinberg and
Charley Fries. Prew defeated both of
them last month and has since beat-
en Halo Hirose, Ohio State's star, at
the 100-yard distance.
Detroit Beaten
By Indians, 6-5
CLEARWATER, Fla., March 19-
(P)--Although outhit 11 to nine, the
Cleveland Indians punched across the
winning run in the ninth inning here
today for a 6 to 5 exhibition game
triumph over the Detroit Tigers, the
Tribe's third Florida victory over De-
troit in three games.
With Pat Mullin back at his right
field post for the first time since he
pulled a muscle in his leg 10 days ago,
the Tigers fell behind 4-0 when Cleve-
land third baseman Bob Lemon and
outfielder Clarence (Soup) Campbell
both hoisted homers over the short
right field screen in the opening inn-
ing off Rookie Lou Kretlow.
611 East University
Across from "U" High

The Northwestern High School pool
with its low ceiling may prove some-
what of an obstacle to the divers.
Wayne's Bob Gardner will at tempt
to get even with Wolverines Ralph
Trimborn and Tommy O*Neil off the
low board. Gardner is rated very
highly in Detroit and may give the
Wolverine uo some st il competition.
Michigan Favored In Other Events
Michigan should have little trouble
winning the rest of the events. Mann
will draw his other freestylers from
Charley Moss, Lou Kivi. Lou Plath,
and Charles Barnes in the sprints,
and Matt Mann. II, and Neville
Adams in the 220- and 440-yard free-
style races.
In the breast stroke Mann will use
Captain Heini Kessler, Bob Sohl, and
Bob Matters with Matters probably
swimming in the 300-yard medley re-
lay. For backstrokers the Maize and
Blue will have Matters, Willard Met-
calf and Art Johnson.
