SAE, Phi Psi, Phi Delt;
Lead Fraternity Cagers

a full slate of games in both the
'A' and 'B' divisions.
Bill Raymond, high scorer for
both loops, dropped in 22 points
* to lead SAE to a 43-26 victory over
Lamda Chi Alpha. Bill Eggen-
berger, another one of the league's
high scorers, bagged 17 points to
Beta's Take
First Place
In HalfMile
Beta Theta Pi won the frater-
nity relay and Hayden House cop-
ped the dormitory relay in spe-

traclkmen were downing Ohio
State, 62-52.
The Beta's won the half-mile
relay in 1:43.1, two-fifths of a sec-
ond ahead of Delta Upsilon. The

yards in the relay, were Jim
Atchison, Jim DeBoer, Ernie An-
derson, and Bob Kerry.
The DU's finished a close sec-
ond with Clyde Reeme, Rog .Vogel,
John Brumbaugh; and Warren
Dwyer carrying the baton. Their
time was 1:43.5.
In third place was Phi Delta
Theta. Running 880 yards in
1:44.0 were George Quillen,
Doug Wicks, Bill Peterson, and
Roy Duff. Sigma Phi Epsilon
finished fourth in the race, be-
ing timed in 1:45. flat. Run-
ning for the Sig Ep's were Ross
Annatoyn, Dave Gray, Bill Bur-
kett, and Ross Pfalzgraff.
Hayden House's relay foursome
crossed the finish line in first
place to win the dormitory event.
Their time was 1:43.8.
A Forester independent squad
covered the half mile distance in
1:53.9, noticeably slower than the
winning fraternity and dormitory
An interesting sidelight is that
the 880-yard winning time of
1:43.1 set by four Beta Theta Pi
men, each running at full speed
for 220 yards, was only 9.3 sec-
onds better than the winning
time of 1:52.4 set in the 880 yard
race by durable Don Gehrmann
of Wisconsin in the 1949 Big Ten
outdoor championships.

Raymo nd Tops
1mM Scoring
Up-to-date but unofficial sta-
tistics show that Bill Raymond,
a Sigma Alpha Epsilon from
Adrian, Michigan, leads all scorers
in the fraternity division of intra-
mural basketball. Raymond has
hit for 19, 11, 19, and 22 points
in four league starts thus far this
season. Here is an unofficial list
of leading scorers in the fraternity
"A" league:
Name Pts. Ave.
Raymond 71 17.75
Fletcher 44 14.67
Katz 42 14.00
Steck 53 13.25
Eggenberger 39 13.00

Cage Teams
End Season
With dormitory "A" basketball
reaching a conclusion Monday
night, the four first-place playoff
positions have almost been deter-
mined. Chicago House holds one
berth, having won division II with
a 3-0 record.
Strauss House took top honors
in division, IV, despite previous
announcements that W illiam s
House had won. According to In-
tramural rules, if two teams both
have identical won-lost records,
the team scoring the most points
in the entire season is the win-
ner. Strauss outscored Williams;
henoce they are the winners.
Adams' cagers, with 3 straight
wins, has only to defeat Wenley
House Monday night to win the
top spot in division I. Fletcher
Hall, on top in division III, will
face Lloyd House in a game for
the championship of that bracket.
In this week's "A" action,
Tyler House spoiled Lloyd's un-
defeated record with a 28-22
win. Duane Luse led the Tyler-
men with 15 points. Fletcher
hall won .its third straight, roll-
ing over Vaughn, 34-16. Bob
Hurley topped the victors with
12 markers.
Wenley House won its first
game with a 28-20 decision over
Cooley. Michigan House defeated
Greene House, 54-26 in a high-
scoring game which saw a sea-
son's high for individual scoring,
Wayne Nystrom sank 13 baskets
and 4 free throws for a 30-point
All of the four teams who ap-
pear likely to enter the first-place
playoffs have w e 11 - balanced
teams. However there are a few
players who deserve special men-
tion. Adams House has a good
one-two punch in Mark Ardis and
Walt Noon, who have been con-
tributing about 20 points per
game together.
Strauss House boasts Gerry
Davis, with a 10-point per game
average, while Paul Fancher of
Chicago House has hit for a 10.3
average thus far this year. Flet-
cher's team scoring also is well-
divided, with Alex Rotsko leading
the way.
The thirty points last Monday
night by Wayne Nystrom is the
highest scoring feat of the year,
and surprisingly enough, next
best among dormitory basketeers
is 16 points, reached by Carl Cor-
nelison of Cooley House early in
the season.
Due to the low-scoring games
in the dormitory basketball
leagues this year, individual high-
scoring performances have been
limited to a great extet. But the
cage season has been a great suc-
cess for the residence halls this

Next Tuesday eve the intra-
mural fraternity swimming meet

will be run off. Professional fra-

The final matches of the All-
Campus boxing tourney will again
be the highlight of this year's I-M
Open House on March 22.
Marty Martelle, who is super-
vising training for this year's
events, announced that there are
still vacancies in all weight divi-
sions. All interested men should
contact him at the I-M Building.

THIS YEAR all entrants will be
divided into two classifications,
Novice and Open, according to the
amount of ring experience they
have had.
The novice class, which is' a new
feature of this year's matches, will
3liminate the poor fights which
result when an inexperienced
fighter is matched against' a' man
with superior ring know how.
Matches will be scheduled in
eight weight divisions: 115, 125,
135, 145, 155, 165, 175, and un-

limited. As in previous years all
winners and runnersup will be

have had five supervised workouts
before he is eligible to compete.
Preliminary matches will start
next week but the final bouts will
