Gymnasts Board Recognition Bandwagon
- ,- w-a-g--n-

A survey of the point chart at
the Intramural Building indicates
that Chi Psi is leading the fra-
ternity loop in athletic activities
to date with Sigma Chi and the
Sig Eps holding down second and
third slots respectively.
In netting 619 first place
points Chi Psi snagged the out-
door track and volleyball titles
and advanced close to the finals
in every other sport entered.
Onla two point difference sep-
arates the Sig Eps from the
runner-up Sigma Chi boys, and
either one has a chance to pull
into the lead before the close of
the spring campaign.
All three fraternities are on the
top of the heap in their basketball
leagues and have entered the sec-
ond round of the bowling and pad-
dieball tournaments which have
just gotten underway. In the re-
maining frat hoop leagues Psi U.

Spring (?J Baseball
D rj lills Begin Toda

With athletic expansion given
the official go-ahead here re-
cently, several quarters have been
exploring the possibilities of mak-
ing gymnastics a varsity sport.
Few will dispute that the Gym-
nastic Club-which has made
basketball halftimes an evening
highlight this year - is good
enough to represent Michigan as
a team. Yet they remain only a
club. Their contortions on the
flying rings, parallel bars, and
mats have brought acclaim from
not only Ann Arbor crowds, but
from groups all over the Midwest.
Other Schools Have Teams
With gymnastic teams at Illi-
nois, Minnesota, and other Big
Nine schools, and a Conference
championship meet scheduled for
March 15, it puts Michigan in a
bad light if the Wolverines con-
tinue to ignore the sport.

To Play Tonight
At 7 p.m. this evening, pool
parlor enthusiasts will see the "U"
billiards team match talents in
straight rail opening competition
with 26 other colleges and univer-
sities throughout the nation.
Actual play, however, will be
held on home campuses with re-
sults of each affair being tele-

Wolverines. Further play in poc-

March '6.

competition tonight, Tom Slattery
will lead the determined Wolver-
ines-Herb Roche, Jim Mummey,
Roy Hiscock, and "Corky" Cor-

Prof. Harry C. Carver, of the
mathematics department, will
serve as referee tonight, and Don
Krueger as official score-keeper.

Michigan hasn't always ignored
it. Before 1933 there was a reg-
ular varsity gymnastics squad
coached by Wilbur "Bill" West.
When the depression hit, it was
discontinued along with fencing
in the University's economy drive.
The depression is over, and in
view of the University's extensive
building program it seems there
is no economy drive hindering its

Eddie Mayo Shines
In Tiger Workout
LAKELAND, Fla., Feb. 25-(P)
-Second baseman Eddie Mayo,
sidelined during most of the 1946
season with an ailing back, stole
the show as the Detroit Tigers
went through the second spring
training workout today.
"He looks great doesn't he"
Steve O'Neill boomed jubilantly.
"I think he looks even faster than
he did before and that won't hurt
any either." After the workout,
Mayo confided that he feels bet-
ter this spring than he has for
the past five seasons,

Ray Fisher, the dean of Michi-

afternoon at Yost Field House.
Although many potentially val-
inble arms have already been

drill the bu tflk of the squad will see
its initial action today in the newly
erected pitching and batting nets.
All tryouts are welcome, of course.
With practice officially inaug-

will be faced with the immediate
problem of getting his squad into

game Southern schedule against

Coach Fisher looks forward to
the southern trip with a good bit
of concern. "We will be very lucky
to get any time at all to practice
outside before the trip; possibly a
week or two, but no more." "Our
