Fonville's record-breaking heave

Wasser, a transfer from New York
University, has dropped one deci-
sion to Fonville this year, in the
Michigan State Relays.
Michigan's strength in the mid-
dle distance events will be put to
a stiff test when the Wolverines
match strides with Illinois' Bob
Rehberg and Clarence Dunn, both
of whom have held the Big Nine
mile title. Dunn, a returning let-
terman from 1943, and Rehberg
broke the tape in a dead heat
against Minnesota with a win-
ning time of 4:22.
Barten May Run Mile
Meanwhile Michigan's Herb Bar-
ten came through with a whirl-
wind finish against his Michigan
State opponents to take the mile
in the good time of 4:19.9. Barten
was a surprse starter in this event
because of the illness of Wolverine.
In the event that Queller is still
sidelined for the Illinois meet,
Barten may have to double back
again in his specialty, the 880, as
he did against the Spartans.
Total 473 Points
An optimistic pocket billiards
squad, representing the best pool-
playing ability on campus, moves
into the second round of inter-
collegiate pocket .billiards compe-
tition on March 19 at the Michi-
gan Union by virtue of their 473
opening game Tuesday evening.
The Wolverine cuemen compiled
a 62% accuracy range in racking
up a 473 point total out of a pos-
sible 750 in their initial test.
Mark Abend, sharp-shooter from
the Motor City, copped individual
laurels with 115 tallies. Two points
behind him was Andy Sullivan,
captain, who recorded 113 at the
end of 15 innings.
Michigan, a member of the New
England and Eastern Section, tel-
ephoned their Tuesday evening
score to the Billiards Association
of America, sponsors of the na-
tion-wide program that encom-
passes 27 colleges, and universities.
Prof. Harry C. Carver, of the
University's mathematics depart-
ment, served as referee Tuesday
night, while Don Krueger acted
as official score-keeper.

Quits Track Team
Coach Ken Doherty's track
team received a setback yester-
day when Hugh Short, outstan-
ding and well known quarter-
miler, announced his with-
drawal from cinder competi-
lie declared that his reason
for taking the step was that
he had "been getting only a
fraction of the benefits from
my education that I should."
The co-holder of the world
600-yard record added that he
was at Michigan primarily to
obtain an education. This, and
the necessity of supporting his
wife and child through out-
side work, make it impossible
for him to continue in track
Short's departure from the
Wolverine squad leaves quite
a large pair of shoes for Coach
Doherty to fill. The quarter-
miler will not go to Illinois this
weekend. Remaining "440"
men are Dick Forrestel, George
Shepherd, Bob Mann, Mel Pet-
wiler and Herb Barten.

Close Event's Will
By CLARK BAKER
Wolverine swimming fans will
get a preview of the coming Big
Nine and NCAA tank champion-
ships at 8 p.m. tonight when the
two Goliaths of the swimming
world, Michigan and Ohio State,
clash at the Sports Building pool.
Unbeaten in dual competition
since 1945 and billed as the great-
est collection of swimming stars
ever assembled on a team, the
Buckeyes will enter the pool fav-
ored to hand Matt Mann's nata-
tors their initial setback of the

. A survey of first-semester grades
of University of Michigan ath-
letes in all sports has revealed
that Track Coach Ken Doherty's
40-man squad turned in a record-
breaking average of 2.73, equiva-
lent to a high "B-minus," which
easily surpassed the over-all cam-
pus average of 2.5'4 for the past
TWo-Miler Hits Four Point
Highest ranking among track-
men was John Morrison, a two-
miler, and an engineering student,
who collected 17 hours of "A"
grades. Four of the squad's top
ten ranking classroom stars were
pole vaulters - Charles Lauritsen,
graduate student; Ed Ulvestad
and Eugene Moody, engineering
students, and Haskell Coplin, stu-
dent in the College of Literature,
Science and the Arts.
Other team averages, which in-
cluded only lettermen who were
involved in more competition than
non-lettermen and reserves, shows
that wrestlers had 2.60; basket-
ball 'players 2.53; hockey players
2.52; football players 2.44 and
Fullbacks Lead Gridd ers
Fullbacks led the football play-
ers with Jack Weisenburger, ed-
ucation, leading with 12 hours of
"A" and six each of "B" and "C".
Dan Dworsky, architecture, with
three "A's", a "B" and a "C" was
second. Bob Wiese with six hours
of "A" and six of "B" also ranked
with the highest in the group as
did End Ed McNeill with eight
hours of "A" and seven of "B"
and Tackle Bob Ballou with eight
hours of "A" and eight of "B"
in the case of the football
squad, Ernest B. McCoy, assistant
to the athletic director, pointed
out that the gridders had made
their records while going through
a full nine-game season mith two-
hour daily practice sessions, plus
games both away and at home.
With two more games scheduled
before the playoffs, the standings
in the five fraternity basketball
leagues straightened out after the,
last round of play.
Alpha Delta Phi took over the
helm in the first league by defeat-
ing Lambda Chi Alpha, 18-11. In
the second circuit the Sig Eps,
paced by guard Harry Anderson,
walked into first place by virtue
of a 33-14 win over the Theta Chis.
Chi Psi showed they were worthy
of a share of the lead in the third
* fraternity circuit with Pi Lambda
derson in 1946. Bruce Harlan, who
turned the trick in the above meet.
Buit even ugainst this power-
laden group, the Wolverine
swimmers will rule as definite
favorites to take three events
on tonight's card. Harry Holiday
figures to take the 150-yard
breaststroke race without too
much trouble. Bob Sohl rates
the nod over Counsilman in the
breaststroke while the Maize
and Blue 300-yard medley relay
trio of Iloliday, Sohl and Dick
Weinberg should take their
Top event of the evening will
probably be the high board diving
match in which Anderson and
Harlan will be pitted against Wol-
verines Gil Evans and Capt. Alex
Canja. Both Evans and Canja
are in fine shape and may come
through with an upset.
Another close battle should
develop between Smith, Hirose
and Weinberg for the top honors
in the freestyle sprints. Hirose
rates an edge in the 50-yard
race while Weinberg on a com-
parative time basis has done a
little better this year at the
