phRwevived

By DAN FOGEL
The I-M athletes had a busy
program last night with cham-
pionships being decided for fra-
ternity and independent volleyball,
residence hall swimming finalists
being determined, and 32 men en-
tering the final round in dormi-
tory and fraternity wrestling.
Zeta Beta Tau won the frater-
nity first place volleyball playoffs
downing Pi Lambda Phi. Led by
the consistent play of Irv Stenn,
Zeta Beta Tau won four straight
games 15-9, 15-13, 15-11, and
15-9, after dropping the initial
contest to the Pi Lams, 16-14.
THE RANGY Zeta Beta Tau
squad passed and spiked well while
checking Pi Lambda Phi's out-
standing performer, Tom Fabian.
Stenn teamed with Stan Wein-
berger to stop the spirited Pi Lam
attack which threatened many
times to come from behind.
The Hawaiian "C" team cap-
tured the Independent first
place volleyball playoffs, eking
out a decision over Wesleyan by
winning four of seven games.
Second place honors went to the
Hawaiian "A" team beating
their fellow countrymen of the
Hawaiian "B" team, four games
to one.
Canterbury Club took third

AP BRIEFS :
McCollNamed
AP Lineman
Of the Year!
NEW YORK-Bill McColl, Stan-
ford's 225-pound end, was named
the Lineman of the Year yesterday
in the Associated Press season-end
poll of sportswriters and sports-
casters.
McCll, picked on the AP All-
America offensive team, played a
superlative game all season in
helping Stanford win the Pacific
Coast Conference championship
and the Rose Bowl spot against
Illinois.
Earlier dazzling Dick Kazmal-
er of Princeton had been chosen
the back of the year by a big
margin. The great Tiger tail-
back received 76 votes of 125 in
the back balloting. Hank Lau-
ricella of Tennessee, an All
America like Kazmaier, was
second with 13 votes.
Two tackles, Don Coleman of
Michigan State, and Jim Weather-
all, of Oklahoma, tied for second
place in the lineman poll.
DETROIT - General Manager
Charley Gehringer of the Detroit
Tigers again talked with Bill Veeck
yesterday about swapping baseball
players. Nothing happened.
The owner of the St. Louis
Browns "didn't make the kind
of offer we wanted," Gehringer
reported.
It was understood Gehringer
{ and Veeck hashed over a pro-
posed swap that would send out-
fielder Johnny Groth and catch-
-' er Joe Ginsberg to St. Loui in
exchange for catcher Matt Batts,
outfielder Cliff Mapes and pitch-
er Duane Pillette.
FLINT-Don Coleman, Michi-
gan State's All-America tackle
from Flint, will be honored to-
morrow at a civic luncheon given
by the Flint Chamber of Com-
merce.

'5' Follows Joe
In Retirement
NEW YORK-(/P)- Joe Di-
Maggio's famous "5", the num-
ber he carried on the back of
his New York Yankee uniform
for 13 brilliant playing seasons,
will be retired, club Publicity
Director Arthur E. Patterson
announced yesterday.
In a special ceremony on
opening day next April, DiMag-
gio's uniform along with his
glove and the bat with which
he hit his last home run will
be presented to baseball's Hall
of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.
DiMaggio's number five uni-
form is the third to be retired
by the Yankees. Bath Ruth's
famous Number 3 was retired
soon after the Sultan of Swat
left the club in 1935 and Lou
Gehrig's Number Four followed
suit four years later.

STRAUSS and Williams each
came through with close victories
to move into the finals of the dor-
mitory swimming meet.
Strauss edged Chicago, 32-25,
after Chicago's free-style relay
team of Bill Sommers, Bill
Rahn, Bob Searles, and Frank
Haag had turned in a very good
time of :48.2 in the opening
event to get Chicago off to a
flying start.

points to win.
IN THE OTHER meet, Williams
won only three events, but gar-
nered enough seconds and thirds
to beat Cooley by a 33-24 margin.
Williams' team of Lloyd An-
derson, Erle Kauffman, Bob
Berman, and Bob Bolt took the
free-style relay, while Bob
Schuitberger, Don Osborne, and
Lou Dame won the medley re-
lay for Cooley.
Individual events were won by
Osborne and Schuitberger of
Cooley and Berman and Bolt of
Williams.
Lions Prepare
For 'Frisco
SAN FRANCISCO -(M)-- The
Detroit Lions are hoping Sunday
will be Bobby Layne's day again.
If it is, the Lions figure their
chances against the San Francisco
49'rs with the Western Division
National Football League title at
stake are pretty good.
Layne, after turning in bril-
liant performances earlier in the
season, has completed only one
scoring aerial in the last two
games. He got one in the losing
effort to the 49'rs two weeks ago
but was blanked last Sunday by
the Los Angeles Rams.
Head coach Buddy Parker is
sending his Lions throughkdaily
drills at the Hamilton Air Force
athletic field, a military installa-
tion a mile from the Lions' quar-
ters.
Parker said all of his players
would be in top physical condition
for the all-important clash with
the 49'rs.
