The next three weeks are slated

cessfully repeat as Western Con-

the Golden Gophers of Minnesota

In this crucial period of the

tangle with the powerhouses of the

BY TAKING TWO of these
games, Michigan can place itself
on the inside track for the rest of
the season and let the other con-
tenders eliminate themselves.
The first of the big three is Pur-
due. The Boilermakers have al-
ready suffered two defeats, one a
heartbreaking single point loss to
Notre Dame, and the other to a
surging Northwestern eleven.
Purdue, coached by Army's ex-
line coach Stu Holcomb is ex-

ricotte who participated in prac-

Bennie Oosterbaan sent his
charges through a stiff passing
workout yesterday in preparation
for Saturday's game.
Walt Teninga and Chuck Ort-
man drew the heavy tossing as-
signments as they consistently hit
ends Dick Rifenburg and Ozzie
Clark in the two hour session.

THE WOLVERINES also worked
on pass defense in order to elimi-
nate some of the difficulties that
enabled Norm Van Brocklin of
Oregon to set an almost perfect
passing record against Michigan
Under the direction of Ooster-
baan and his assistants, the Michi-

by breaking into four units for sig-

UPWARDS of 65 entries have
been received for the All-Campus
Singles Tennis Tournament that
will begin late Thursday afternoon
with games at 4:15 and 5:15.
Last year's champion Harry
Goldberg is no longer on cam-
pus but runner-up James Al-
bert is and will compete.
Nine four-team leagues began
Inter-fraternity touch football
competition nearly a week and a
Sigma Alpha .Epsilon won 6-0
over Sigma Nu and 20-6 over
Alpha Sigma Phi. Thet Chi kept
marks with the SAE's by defeating
Sigma Nu 20-0 and Alpha Sigma
In League H Sigma Phi Ep-
silon and Chi Phi share top
honors with a won one and lost
none box score. Trigon has one
and one for a .500 average, their
only loss being a 29-0 crushing
by the Sig. Eps. Kappa Sigma
sustained twin 6-0 defeats by
Chi Phi and Trigon.
Sigma Chi and Alpha Phi Alpha
share perfect records and the lead
of League III. Sigma Chi has de-
feated Phi Kappa Tau 13-0 and
Alpha manhandled Theta Delta
Chi 27-0 and knocked off Phi
Kappa Tau 12-0.
Phi Kappa Psi holds at least
a game lead on the two nearest
competitors, Phi Gamma Delta
and Psi Upsilon. In League IV,
defeating the two teams 31-0,
7-6 respectively. Triangle lost to
Phi Gam 12-6 and to Psi U. 7-0.
Only one round of games had
been played in the fifth, sixth,
seventh and eighth leagues until
Lambda Chi Alpha's filure un-
der Phi Kappa Sigma 18-6 and
the Beta Theta Pi's 14-0 victory
over Delta Kappa Epsilon had'
given both the Betas and the Phi
Sigs a chance for the League V
Alpha Delta Phi shook off Phi
Sigma Kappa 12-0 to tie with Chi
Psi, as Delta Tau Delta took a
20-0 drubbing from them to join
the Phi Sigs in the League VI
Michigan's intran-mural track
season will get under way this
afternoon at 4:30 when the fra-
ternity meet is held at Ferry
Field under the direction of El-
mer Swanson, assistant track
coach. Beta Theta Pi, Sigma Chi,
and Chi Psi are expected to fight
it out for the championship.
Phi Delta Theta and Delta Up-
silon have the only perfect win
records in League IX: Phi Delt
over Zeta Psi 7-0, DU over Sigma
The Sigma Phi game with DU
ended in a scoreless tie and was
decided as each team took the
ball for four post-game plays. Un-
der I-M rules whichever team
makes the most yardage gets
credit for the win.

'With the big run under his
belt, Sain didn't give the Indians
a chance to fight back in the
ninth. After Boudreau and Joe
Gordon flied out to open the
frame, Cleveland got a brief life
when Elliott took Ken Keltner's
roller and threw high over Earl
Torgeson's head at first base.
With Keltner on second a sin-
gle could have sent the battle into
extra innings. But rightfielder
Walt Judnich looked at a third
strike and the crowd stormed onto
the field. The Braves practically
carried Sain to the dressing room.
* ~ * *.
NONE OF THE four blows off
Sain was better than a single, and
they were spaced over as many
innings, from the first through the
sixth. The big fellow, a 24-game
winner during the past campaign,
didn't allow anything resembling
a hit in the last three chapters.
Aided by a stiff breeze from
behind his back, Sain forced the
slugging American Leaguers to
hoist the ball high into the air
most of the way. His outfield'
ers made 15 catches, tying the
World Series record set by the
New York Giants in 1912. All
the catches were easy ones, and
only one Cleveland drive, by Ken
Keltner, in the sixth inning,
came near reaching the fences.
The Braves were of course,
even more futile against Feller's
great speed and snapping curves
before they, and Bob's own wild-'
ness, finally caught up with him
at the end.
For the first three innings he
set the National Leaguers down in
order, only three balls going out
of the infield. The first Brave to
get on was Torgeson, who worked
Feller for a walk after two were
down in the fourth. He swiped
second, but died there as Elliott
* *S * .
RICKERT, WHO joined the
Braves only last week from Mil-
waukee to take the place of in-
jured Jeff Heath, tagged the
Cleveland ace for a clean single to
start the fourth, the ball just elud-
ing Ed Robinson's glove as it
sped past. A sacrifice sent Rickert
to second, but he got no farther as
McCormick and Stanky failed to
get the ball out of the infield.
That was all until the eighth.
Cleveland had runners on base
in five of the first six frames,
and it appeared only a matter of
time until they would bust loose.
But the big hit never came when
it was needed.
Boudreau, whose two home runs
sparked -the Indians to Monday's
playoff victory over the Boston
Red Sox, was perhaps the biggest
disappointment of the Cleveland
cast today. In four tries he rapped
the ball solidly only once, when he
lined out to centerfield to open the
ninth. He whiffed to open the
fourth and rolled to second in the
... Indian hope to even series.
'M' Club Head
Goodlaw H. Rogers, who won
three letters in baseball between
1911-'13, was elected president of
the M Club, alumni organization
for all Wolverine letter winners.
Bob Morgan, genial assistant
general secretary of the alumni
association, was named to the
secretary-treasurer post of the M
Club.tAyresident of Ann Arbor,
Morgan played football for the
Maize and Blue in 1930, '31.
Besides these positions, election
results found the following chosen
on the executive board: Ernie Mc-
Coy, new Michigan basketball
coach and long-time assistant ath-
letic director; Howard Hinds of
Detroit; John Leidy and Elwood
Cushing, both of Ann Arbor, and
C. L. T. Cabler of Detroit.

Another promising halfback is
Jim Eldridge, who hails from
Monroe, Michigan. He made All-
State last year as a left half. This
year he has been shifted to the
wing-back by Coach Weber, and
is handling it very well so far.

Practice sessions for the 1948
edition of the Wolverine 150-
pound team will reach their high-
est point of the campaign this af-
ternoon when Coach Cliff Keen
sends his sixty man squad through
an intra-squad game at Ferry
Coach Keen and his assistants
have divided the contingent of 150
pounders into red and blue elevens
for today's contest. This fracas
will be the first one of its type so
far this year for the lightweights.
The lightweight mentor stated
at the conclusion of yesterday's
drill that he thought that the
Maize and Blue would be able to
field a pretty good 150-pound
team this year. He praised the
spirit that the grid aspirants have
shown in their early practices.
Yesterday's session was devoted
to a light signal drill with each
of the four different elevens
brushing up on their T formation
plays for today's gome.

WEBER'S CLASS OF '52:
Freshman Squad Studded
With PrepSchool Stars
If the high school achievements of some of the freshman gridders
mean anything, the Wolverines should continue to dominate West-
ern Conference football.
Wally Weber's huge squad of 140 youthful footballers is studded
with prep school stars. Several of them are already proving that they
know how to handle the pigskin.
