"Dick never played ball be-
fore he came here and in the
year he played on the varsity
squad, I never asked him to
hunt," Fisher said. "The way he
was hitting the pitchers in this
league there was no sense in
telling him to do anything but
hit away."
His hitting paced Michigan
to a Western Conference cha.-
pionship and he -ranks as the
greatest power hitter in Con-
ference history.

Neither the elements, a leaky
roof, nor a fouled-up pistol could
detract 5,000 sports enthusiasts
from witnessing a thrill-packed
Open house aiernoa last night
at. the Sports Building.
The first game of the program
found the Rebels edging out the
Mis-fits while referee Harry An-
derson took several breaks to mop
up a slightly "damp" floor. In-
stead of calling off the next two
games, the fraternity and dorm
title tilts were shifted to another
court in quick order, and every-
thing was restored to normal.
Gun Gets Temperamental
But all was not too rosy in the
swimming meet, for when, the res-
idence halls 25-yard free stylers
took their mark, the pistol gave
an ear-shattering click t h r e e
straight times, which had the
boys hanging so far over the edge
of the pool they were practically
lying horizontal on the water. In
the fraternity 100-yard free style
race the pistol got temperamental
again by misfiring with the re-
sult that one fellow hats swum
a length and a half before being
stopped and notified that he had
to start again.
In a closely contested battle,
the Rebels of the Independent
League outscored the Mis-Fits,
27-25 to take the league title.
The Rebs had to beat the Goosers
last Monday night to gain a final
berth and they came through last
night with some excellent shot-
making by Frank Gutowsky, who

two successive buckets by Dolph

In the second quarter the ATO's
found the range and hammered
away at te Chi Psi lead until
they were down by only a 15-12
margin at the half. In the third

a set shot by Deyoe, but the Chii

As soon as weather permits, 19
leading candidates for Michigan's
golf team will match talents on

36-hole medal event for the 12
available varsity berths, Coach
Bert Katzenmeyer announced yes-
The top eight performers in the
intra-squad competition will be
rewarded with an Easter trip
through Dixie-land to battle with
some of the South's top-ranking
collegiate contenders.
Coach Katzenmeyer, who has
surveyed the swinging of more
than 80 golf prospects in the past
two weeks of indoor practice at
the Sports Building, optimistical-
ly reports tlat he has an abun-
dant wealth of talent on hand to

The 19 talented golfers include
several 1946 letterwinners-Cap-
tain Dave Barclay, Bill Courtright,
Pete Elliott, Rog Kessler, Ed Scha-

Jenswold, 1945 Big Nine champ,
and Tom Messinger played here
two years ago, while Paul O'Hara
and Bill Ludolph were mainstays
of the 1944 and '43 squads.
The most promising newcomers

point advantage resting with Win-
geart. Tn the second round how-
ever, the latter was penalized six
points as he repeatedly failed to
heed the referee's warning to step
back froin the clinches without
throwing any punches. Burns
went on to win 86-84 but the re-
sult would have been different if
not for the foul.
Mark Abend upset former Gold-

had piled up a very slight lead
going into the last round but
Abend changed tactics and com-
menced slugging instead of at-
tempting to outbox Litsey. The
new strategy proved effective as
Litsey became just slightly flus-
tered, enough for Abend to shade
him in this closely fought bout.
The final clash of the tourna-
ment was really a crowd pleaser
