Phillies Crush Giants, 8-1;
Tigers, Browns Rained Out

WITH THREE-FOURTHS of the intramural sports program com-
pleted both fraternity and residence hall teams are preparing for
the stretch drive.
Four spring sports, baseball, tennis, golf, and horseshoes, are just
getting under way, while water polo and paddleball are almost fin-
ished.
In the fraternity division Sigma Phi Epsilon appears well on the
way to winning its fifth straight intramural crown, while Gomberg
is leading the residence hall division.
At the moment the Sig Eps lead their closest rival Sigma
Chi by a scant 15 points, but stand to increase their advantage
with additional points in paddleball from which Sigma Chi has
been eliminated.
The Sig Eps also look with pleasure to the coming softball sea-
son, since with the change in IM eligibility rules they will once again
be able to use their star twirler Bob Schmidt. The year before last
Schmidt led them to the diamond crown, but since he had entered
law school he was unable to play last season.
Record To Fall .0
WHICHEVER TEAM takes the crown, it will most likely have to
break the all time intramural scoring of 1579 set by the Sig Eps
back in 1949. Both groups are less than three hundred points short
of that now.
So far fifteen titles have been awarded in different sports, with
all the laurels being split up among six different houses.
The second place group, Sigma Chi, has taken the amazingly
large number of seven firsts to the leaders two. Sigma Chi's titles
came in football, relays, dual swimming, swimming, Basketball
'A' and 'B', and a tie for the outdoor track crown. The Sig Eps
took Volleyball and bowling.
Other title winners were Sigma Alpha Epsilon in wrestling and
foul throwing, Kappa Sigma in cross country and outdoor track, Phi
Delta Theta in indoor track, and Sigma Alpha Mu in handball.
Gomberg Leads ...}
GOMBERG HOUSE is practically out by itself in the residence hall
division. Only Allen-Rumsey seems to have any chance at all ofj
overtaking the South-quadders. Both Gomberg and Allen Rumsey
have taken the most firsts in the dorms. They each have four crowns.'
Gomberg has taken all the marbles in outdoor track, swim-
ming, and 'A' and 'B' basketball, while the West-quadders have
taken wrestling, table tennis, relays, and indoor track.
An oddity appears in the residence hall division in the fact that
Chicago house, which has won two titles, water polo and foul throw-,
ing, has not garnered enough points to place in the top ten. Last
year's winner Hayden house is far behind the leaders, in sixth place,
and almost three hundred points down.
The top ten in both divisions are:3

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Gene Woodling
walloped a pair of run-scoring
doubles off Bobby Shantz yester-
day to break up a sterling pitch-
ing duel between New York's Allie
Reynolds and Philadelphia's tiny
southpaw, paving the way for a
4-1 Yankee triumph over the Ath-
letics.
Reynolds and Shantz dueled
evenly until the seventh inning
when the world champions broke
through for two tallies to snap a
1-1 deadlock. The Yankees added
an extra run off righthander Mar-
ion Fricano in the eighth.
Outhit seven to five by the
Athletics, theeYankeescollected
only four safeties off Shantz.
However, they made them all
count whereas the A's wasted all
but two of their safeties. Two of
the Yankees' runs were un-
earned, and some wretched
fielding by first baseman Eddie
Robinson and leftfielder Gus
Zernial accounted for a third
New York tally.
Reynolds was far from sharp as
he walked six batters. But he
proved tough in the clutch, strand-
ing 11 Philadelphia base runners.
He fanned five and yielded only
one extra base hit, a fifth inning
double by Allie Clark, that chased
in the only Philadelphia run.
PHILLIES 8, GIANTS 1
PHILADELPHIA - Curt Sim-
mons pitched a five hitter and
joined in a 14-hit assault on four
New York Giants' pitchers with a
pair of singles and a double to
lead the Philadelphia Phillies to
an 8-1 victory at Connie Mack
Stadium yesterday.
Simmons walked three and
struck out five with the only run
scored against him Bobby Thom-
son's second home run in two days.
Del Ennis hammered his first hom-
er of the season with a man on
base in the first inning which was
enough to hang the defeat on Al
Corwin, first New York hurler.
Frank Hiller, Montia Kennedy and
Dave Koslo followed Corwin to the
mound and each gave up at least
one run.

DODGERS 4, PIRATES 2
BROOKLYN-A two-run single
by Shortstop PeeWee Reese kept
the Brooklyn Dodgers right where
they finished last season . . . on
top,
His eighth-inning hit gave the
Bums a 4-2 victory over Pitts-
burgh and spoiled the major
league "homecoming" of the Pi-

ALLIE RENOLDS
. . . bests Shantz
rates' Johnny Lindell. Lindell's
two-run homer had kept him in a
pitching deadlock with Russ Meyer
until Reese broke up the ball game
seen only by 3,169 Brooklyn cus-
tomers.
The Dodger win for Meyer was
his first since he was traded to
the Dodgers. He gave up 6 hits
in the first four innings but al-
lowed only two more in the re-
maining five.
TIGERS
DETROIT - The Detroit Ti-
gers' hard luck right-hander, Art
Houtteman, will pitch the open-
ing game at Briggs Stadium this
afternoon against the Cleveland
Indians.
Manager Fred Hutchinson an-
nounced his pitching choice in St.
Louis where the Tigers dropped
the season's opener to the St.
Louis Browns 10-0 last night. The
second game scheduled for yes-
terday with the Brownies was
called off because of the weather.
Hal Newhouser originally had
been slated to open the season
here but he was one of the cas-
ualties of last night's fiasco even
though he didn't get into the
game.He pulled a muscle on his
right leg while running in the
outfield before the game.
Houtteman, who had an 8-20
last season, has been trying to
work off a sore arm and hasn't
done much pitching this spring.
In his last appearance, against the
Cincinnati Reds Sunday, he yield-
ed 10 hits and eight runs in six
innings. Mike Garcia 22-14 will
be on the mound for the Indians.

By HANLEY GURWIN
"All we look forward to now is
the conference meet at Madison."
That's the way Hugh Wright,
captain of this year's Michigan
golf squad, summed up the opin-
ions of his teammates after re-
turning from an intensive week of
practice in the south.
* * *
WRIGHT EXPLAINED that the
conference meet is based on medal
play and that from here on until
the meet at the end of May, all
the fellows will be out trying to
shave those strokes from the score.
The conference meet is all
that really counts in Big Ten
golf and if the Wolverines re-
cause peat as champions, a
prime cause will undoubtedly be
Captain Waght, one of the two
hold-overs from last year's
squad.
Wright, now in his third and
last year on the Maize and Blue
varsity, has played far better golf
this year than he had at this
stage of the game in his previous
two seasons. His short game, which
last year was not as good as it
could have been, has come along
nicely this spring.
THE BATTLE CREEK, Michi-
gan senior putted and chipped ex-
tremely well while on the recent
southern swing. With a new con-
fidence in his short game combined
with his flawless driving and per-
fect form, Wright is bound to con-
tinue to improve his now steady
performances.
Last summer "Hubba," as
Wright is called by his team-
mates, won his first tournament
title after coming close on many
occasions. He walked off with top
honors in the Battle Creek
Match Play Championship, and
then came back with the run-
ner-up slot in the medal play
title.

UNLIKE A LOT of golfers who
began playing as soon as they-
could hold a club, Wright didn't
start to play golf until he was in
the ninth grade. Like many of the
present top-notch golfers, how-
ever, Wright, too, started as a
caddy, several years before he be-
gan to play himself.
When he reached Lakeview
High School, Wright and several
of his friends re-organized the
varsity golf squad, which had
not competed since Chick Har-
bert, now an outstanding pro-
fessional, had graduated sev-
eral years before.
Besides being a member of the
Lakeview High team, which cap-
tured the Twin Valley Conference
Championship, the Battle Creek
linkster won three city junior
titles.
NOW A graduating senior, the
burly Wright, who was married
last September to a hometown
girl, has hopes of having his best
season to date.
While Wright was pondering
over what he thought was his
best stroke, Tad Stanford, his
partner on the recent trip jok-
ingly chimed in, "Five iron shots
out of the crotches of trees."
Five iron shots out of tree
crotches may very well be one of
his better shots, but it is still the
combination of his long, straight,
powerful drives along with deadly
chip shots and putts that make
Wright, as well as any golfer, a
first-classaperformer.

TASTE BETTER!
Cleaner, Freeher, moother!
Ask yourself this question: Why do I smoke?
You know, yourself, you smoke for enjoyment.
And you get enjoyment only from the taste of a
cigarette.
Luckies taste better-cleaner, fresher, smoother!
Why? Luckies are made better to taste better. And,
what's more, Luckies are made of fine tobacco.
L.S./M.F.T.-Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco.
So, for the thing you want most in a cigarette...
