SPORTS TRAIL
. .. By Gene Mackevich

M' Places Third in NCAA;
Jones, Davies Set Records

With two-thirds of the intramural sports program completed,
fraternity, residence hall, and independent teams are busy making
preparations for the big stretch drive coming up this spring.
Four sports highlight the final third of the IM athletic pro-
gram, which will begin immediately after spring vacation. The
sports are baseball, tennis, golf, and horseshoes.
But before looking into the future, a run down of the standings
to date might be in order.
* * * *
Sig Eps Lead Again
One of the closest races in years is shaping up in the social
fraternities. Sigma Phi Epsilon, who has won the IM crown for the
past three years, is leading the pack with 1057 points. The Sig Eps
have been able to win only one individual sport title (relays) but in
the 14 activities to date, they have given good accounts of themselves
in each."
Sigma Chi ranks a close second with. 1028 total tallies. They
have won championships in the swimming meet and "B" basketball.
Alpha Tau Omega, who was in the lead at the end of fallj
competition, has dropped down to the third slot with 1014
points. Nevertheless, ATO has captured four championships, two
more than any other house.
They have won titles in outdoor track, football, dual swimming,
and "A" basketball. These crowns have netted them a total of 496
points.
One point behind ATO, resting in fourth place, is Phi Delta Theta.
The PhiDelts captured the dual swimming championship to help
them obtain their 1013 point total. I
Kappa Sigma, with 936 tallies, holds down the fifth position. The
Kappa Sigs won early titles in cross country ond shared the track
' championship with ATO and Delta Sigma Phi.
The top ten are rounded out by Phi Gamma Delta, 925;'
Sigma Alpha Mu, 874; Pi Lambda Phi, 869; Sigma Alpha Epsilon,
813; and Chi Psi, 801.
Of these five houses, the Sammies are the only ones to capture
a crown this season. Among the houses not in the top ten, Zeta Beta
Tau was the only team to win a championship. The former collected 75
points for winning the handball title, while the latter netted 150
tallies for their efforts in volleyball.
* * 4'
Hayden Heads Halls"
Jumping over now to the residence halls, we find Hayden House
r in first place with 954 points. The East Quadders captured the water
polo and "B" bowling crowns.
In the runner-up position is last year's winner, Williams House,
with 914 tallies. The men from Williams have added the outdoor
track, cross country, and wrestling crowns to their long line of ac-
complishments.
Hinsdale, with 868 markers, ranks third, and Allen-Rumsey
places fourth with a 860 total. The latter took the relays and the "A"
basketball titles.
Interesting to note'are the fraternities that represented each of
the Big Ten Conference schools as 1951 intramural champions. Here at
Michigan, the Sig Eps have been champs for the past three seasons.
At Illinois, Iowa, and Purdue,Phl Delta Theta ran off with
their respective schools' IM champion awards. Phi Kappa Phi
led in athletics at Indiana, while Sigma Nu proved to be the
strongest IM house on the Michigan State campus.
-Beta Theta Pi represents Wisconsin as its intramural champ, and
Northwestern honors Phi Kappa Psi. At Minnesota, Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon ranks tops in athletics among the houses.

TORONTO-(P)-The Detroit
Red Wings moved to within one
victory of gaining the final round
of the National Hockey League
Stanley Cup playoffs last night by
crushing the Toronto Maple Leafs,
6-2.
Rookie Johnny Wilson scored
twice to pace Detroit to its third
straight victory over the Leafs in
the best of seven series.

CHICAGO - (R) -Army Lt.
Warren Druetzler uncorked a
terrific finish to dethrone four-
time champion Don Gehrmann
in the Banker's mile of the
Chicago Relays last night.
Druetzler, hanging back un,
til the final 50 yards, triumphed
in 4:09.7. Gehrmann faded bad-
ly to finish third behind Dewey
Johnson of Drake.
Detroit, showed the crowd of
14,402 just why they hold the lead
in games over Toronto which fin-
ished third in the regular season.
Detroit led 2-1 at the end of
the first period and went into
the last 20 minutes with a cushy
4-2 margin that at no time was
in danger. Only eight penalties
were called, all in the opening
session as the teams played it
cautiously, checking close most
of the time.
The Leafs played 37-year-old
Turk Broda in the nets and the
veteran made a creditable showing
but there probably were plenty in
the crowd who figured that Toron-
to made a mistake by benching Al
Rollins who played through the
schedule and- in the first playoff
game.

WILSON became the leading
goal-scorer of the semi-finals with
two last night to raise his output to
four for the series. Marty Pavelich,
Ted Lindsay, Leo Reise and Ben
Woit were the other Red Wing
marksmen. Toronto's marksmen
were Joe Klukay and Max Bent-
ley.

IN TIME FOR EASTER ... RABIDEAU-HARRIS
23rd ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL!

SUITS
$31.-$34

- TOPCOATS

Three major varsity sports in his
freshman year.
This sums up in a nutshell the
accomplishments of Don Eaddy,
the astoundingly versatile young-
ster from Grand Rapids, Michi-
gan. Eaddy, after turning in im-
pressive performances in both bas-
ketball and football, has now
turned his talents toward the
baseball field.
* * *
AT THE MOMENT he is out in
front in the race for the coveted
third base spot. His sparkling work
in the field, bullet-like arm, and
impressive stick-work in early
batting sessions have given him
the edge over gridder Don Old-
ham and sophomore Bob Leach.
Eaddy has a difficult task

ahead of him, inasmuch as he is
stepping' into the hot corner
shoes of Gerry Dorr, one of the
finest all-around diamond per-
formers ever to play at Michi-
gan.
* *' *
EADDY'S FIELDING, according
to early indications, may in time
surpass that of Dorr. He has sure
hands, a powerful arm and moves
gracefully around the bag. Hitting
remains the uncertain quantity.
While he has been powdering
the ball, consistently in practice
sesisons down in the Field House,
this can't speak too strongly for
what he'll do when he meets up
with top-flight pitchers who are
throwing as hard as they can.
But if the averages that Don

compiled in local leagues around
Grand Rapids are any criteria, he
will fit comfortably in Dorr's
large-sized foot prints.
* * *
IF AFTER Coach Ray Fisher's
crew returns from their exhibition
swing in the sunny Southlands
Eaddy is still number one man at
third base, it will be the second
sport, in which Don has held a"
starting berth.
Before earning his "M" in bas-
ketball, Eaddy had seen limited
action with the football team. A
talented passer and shifty run-
ner, Eaddy got into several games
at the tailback slot and chances
are that his name will become
much more familiar with the au-
tumn sport next fall.
