ECENTLY THE DAILY ILLINI, the student 'newspaper at the
University of Illinois, conducted a campus survey to find out what
nd of coverage the collegian wanted on his sports page. Much to
eryone's amazement, news about intramural activities headed the
t of the readers' hit parade.
With the supposition that reader taste at Illinois is not vastly
fferent from that here at Michigan, The Daily decided to go all
it in giving full coverage to IM sports. The weekly Thursday page was
irsaken in behalf of more timely daily articles about IM festivities.
This column, to be written weekly, is part of the change in
Daily sports policy. We not only hope to summarize the weekly
intramural events in this space, but with a little cooperation from
the readers, to bring out human interest stories and unusual
situations that occur in the caurse of the week in IM play.
Why do we need the reader's cooperation? The IM staff as it
ands now is much too small to ferret out such incidents from the
,ass of material that comes its way. We on the sports staff hope that
ie reader will send in interesting facts and stories from IM competi-
on to keep this column a going concern.

f HE OTHER DAY the Political Scientists were scheduled to face the
Economists in a Faculty league softball game. Before the contest
immenced, the Poly Sciers notified the "money men" that the game
as going to be played under protest.
Several of the economists, the politicos charged, were also taking
Aitical science courses, and therefore were ineligible for both teams.
hey had good reasons to holler, too. The Economists applied an 18-3
tellacking to them. So far no decision on the protest has been handed

Wolverines Seek Victory
From Wildcat Net Squad
By ED WHIPPLE
The Northwestern Wildcats,
those perennial nemeses of Big Ten
tennis teams, are scheduled to trot
onto the Ferry Field courts this
afternoon at 1:00 p.m. to engage
Michigan's once-beaten netters.
This year's Wildcats, however,
apparently lack much of the snarl
characteristic of recent Purple ag-
gregations which have won seven
Conference titles, four of them in
the past four years, under Coach

COACH Bill Murphy's Wolver-
ine squad will be seeking its 31st
win in the last 32 dual starts as
they stalk the Wildcats, who are
experiencing a lean season com-
pared to their usual standards.
A 'twice-beaten Iowa outfit
clawed the lads from Evanston
7-2 last week, and prior to that
Indiana edged them, 5-4.
Bennett's main difficulty is fill-
ing the shoes left vacant by the

THOMAS' EFFORT, the best
ing at single performance in the meet,
enabled Michigan State to place
third behind Illinois and Michi-
gan in the Conference standings.
Thomas' outdoor efforts have
been consistent with his excel-
lent indoor performances. In
State's dual contest with Iowa
last week, Thomas stepped over
the high hurdles in 14.9 sec-
onds and ran the lows in 24.6
Those marks compare favor-
ably with the timings hung up
by Michigan's Capt. Don Hoover
last Saturday as the Wolverines
walloped Wisconsin, 100-32. Hoov-
er posted an identical 14.9 clock-
ing in the highs, anfi covered the
low obstacle race in 24.4 seconds.
SPARTAN COACH Karl Schla-
deman hasn't revealed plans for
the use of Thomas in this Satur-
day's meet, but will probably ei-
ter him in both hurdles races and
the broad jump. Thomas prob-
ably will be withheld from the
sprints, since Schlademan has Art
