Wolverine Harriers Will
Bid for Big Ten Laurels

When the Wolverine harriers
journey to Chicago next month
for the 38th annual Western Con-
ference cross-country champion-
e ship, they will be shooting for
their first crown since 1922.
Although Michigan does not run
cross-country as a varsity sport,
but merely as preparation for the
indoor and outdoor campaigns, this
year's squad has a fine chance for
the title.
ONLY ONE of the five harriers
who counted for the Wolverines
last season is not back. He is Del
Hyde, who ran 21st, the :poorest
of the Blue shirts who scored, as
the Maize and Blue counted 77
points, placing third behind Michi-
gan State and Wisconsin.
Returning for this year's
four mile gallup are John Ross,
Buzzie Guise, John Meule, and
Bill Hickman. They finished 6th,
13th, 18th, and 20th respective-
ly last year.
The three remaining spots on
the squad probably will be chosen
from the quartet of George Lynch,
Roy Christiansen, Geoff Dooley,
and Bob Hall.
Main competition for Coach Don
Canham's cohorts should come
from Michigan State, Indiana and
IN A SPORT where depth is all
important the Spartan squad
shows fine balance. Their top
quartet features Captain Jim Kep-
ford, Lyle Garbe, Gerry Zerbe, and
Dick Jarrett. Last year Kepford
finished fourth.
The Hoosier squad will be
paced by the trio of Lowell Zel-
lers, Jim Lambert, and George
Branham. The Badgers will be
hurt by the loss of last year's
champ, Walter Deike, but are
perennially strong and likely to
come up with a surprise.
The favorite for the individual
title looms as Iowa's Ted Wheeler.
Last season the Hawkeye followed
Deike across the finish line.
On the Wolverine squad, on the
basis of last year's performance,
Ross must be considered the big
gun. The speedy junior, conference
indoor and outdoor mile champ,
spent part of his summer in Eu-
rope campaigning with the Cana-
dian Olympic team.
CANHAM may well have a sur-
prise trump in his pack of cards
in the person of Lynch. Although
the Canadian ace is untried in a
Wolverine uniform, he showed fine
form competing unattached in in-
vitational meets last year.
Hickman and Guise are the only

seniors on the squad that accents
youth. Though both Moule and
Dooley competed last season, they
are only sophomores. The other
sophomore on the squad, Hall, did
not run track last year.
Michigan does not run any
freshmen cross-country meets, but
at present a large gathering of
Maize and Blue freshman is in
training at Ferry Field.
M' Sail Club
Gains Position
In NIJRegatta I
Michigan's Sailing Club out-
raced eight other schools on windy
Whitmore Lake Saturday and
Sunday to take first place in the
B District Elimination Regatta
with 117 points.

THE VICTORY enables the
Wolverine skippers to travel to
Chicago during the Thanksgiving
vacation where they will compete
with nine other sailing aggrega-
tions at the Northwestern Fall In-
vitational Regatta on Lake Michi-
To the winner of this regat-
ta will go the heralded Timme
Angsten Memorial Trophy, sym-
bol of sailing supremacy in the
Midwest and currently held by
Purdue University.
Michigan, State and Bowling
Green; second and third place fin-

Kappa Sigma
Defeats DU;i
Chi Phi Wins,
Jerry Davis sparked Sigma Chi
to a 22-13 triumph over Phi Gam-
ma Delta in the general fraternity
first-place playoffs in I-M foot-
ball yesterday.
Sigma Chi started slow, scoring
once in the first half on a pass
from Davis to Jim Young. Davis
passed to Paul Francher for the
extra point. The Phi Gams coun-
tered with a touchdown pass from
Pete Paulis to Howie Liverance
and an extra point by Joe Middle-
yard penalty, moved the ball from
deadlocked, 7-7.
SIGMA CHI roared back in the
second half to take the lead on a
Davis to Francher pass and
clinched the game on another pass
by Davis, this time to Bill Ammer-
man. Davis threw to Young for the
extra point after Francher's
The Phi Gams fought back
with a tally on a pass from
Paulis to Middleton. A Phi Gam
was caught behind his own goal
line to bring the score to its
final count, 22-13.
In another first-place playoff
tilt, Kappa Sigma built up a 9-0
halftime advantage and held on
to edge Delta Upsilon, 16-13. The
Kappa Sigs scored two points in
the first half on a safety resulting
from a DU fumble in the end zone.
After an interception by Don
Mitchell, Tom Case tossed to Rad
Fisher for a touchdown and to
Mitchell for the extra point to
give Kappa Sig its halftime lead.
AT THE START of the second
half, DU whittled six points off
the lead on a pass from Steve
Pannes to Earl Cline. A few plays
later, Kappa Sig, aided by a 15-
yard penalty, moved the ball from
midfield to the three-yard line
where Case threw to Chuck Hei-
merdinger in the end zone for
what proved to be the winning
marker. Dave Livingston scored
the extra point on a pass from
In the last few seconds of the
game, DU worked the ball down
the field from its own 20-yard
line to score the final tally. Pan-.
nes passed to Bob Brown for the
touchdown and to Ed Whipple
for the extra point.
Alpha Epsilon Pi nosed out Psi
Upsilon, 6-0, in the second place
playoffs. In the first half Herb
Zarrow threw a pass to Sam Kun-
in on a touchdown play that cov-
ered 40 yards. Since neither team
was able to cross the other's goal-
line during the rest of the game,
the first score decided the con-
In another second place playoff,
Chi Phi downed Sigma Phi, 6-0,
on Lee Krumvholz's pass to Glen
Leiving. The game was a scoreless
tie at halftime, but Leiving broke
up the game on his touchdown
catch, a play that started on the
25-yard line.
IN THE THIRD place playoffs,
Alpha Delta Phi squeezed by Phi
Sigma Delta when Bob Carpenter
threw a touchdown pass to harry
MacCallum on the last play of the
game to give the Alpha Delts a
12-6 victory. Fred Deng scored the

Alpha Delts' first tally on an in-
terception in the first half.
In another third-place playoff
Phi Sigma Kappa had an easy time
with Delta Sigma Phi, winning



Gomberg Captures Dorm Track Title

Both defending track champions
of the Residence Hall and Inde-
pendent I-M leagues were defeated
in their quests for another title.
Gomberg House picked up
25 1/10 points to take the Resi-
dence Hall title and defeated Wil-
liams, the defending champions,
who scored 20 1/10 points.
WILLIAMS TOOK an early lead
by taking first and third in the
high hurdles and third in the mile.
Gomberg was unable to gather
any points in these first two events.
Gomberg's first points came in
the 100 yard dash. Blaine Harper
of Gomberg won the first heat
in a record tying time of 11 sec-
In the second heat the record
was smashed by Dave Maloney of
Allen-Rumsey who was clocked at
10.8. In the dash final Maloney
won in 10.9, but his heat record
was put into the I-M record books
for the Residence Hall League.
The meet was won by Gomberg
in the field events. Williams landed
only a third and a tie for fourth
in the pole vault. Gomberg took
one-two in the brood jump, second
and third in the shot put, a tie
for first in the high jump and had
two men tie for fourth in the pole
in jury Jinx
Hurts Squad
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan began
preparations yesterday for the
weekend onslaught of Paul Giel
and the Golden Gophers of Min-
The Wolverines abstained from
contact scrimmage due to the
growing number of injuries which
have beset the varsity this season.
FURTHER examination of full-
back Bob Hurley disclosed the
fracture of three transverse pro-
cesses of the spine. The injury is
expected to sideline Hurley for the
remainder of the season, though
there is still a very remote possi-
bility that he might see action
against Ohio State.
Serious injuries have hit the
Michigan camp harder this
season than in many years. Ta-
ckle Ralph Stribe was lost for
the campaign when he sustained
a dislocated hip in the second
game against Stanford. Center
Dean Ludwig was lost at the
beginning of the season due to
a neck injury.
Ends John Veselenak and Jim
Bates are both sidelined with se-
rious knee injuries. All-America
candidate Lowell Perry and wing-
back Frank Howell have both been
bothered by persistent muscle
sprains, as has Captain Merritt
Green. A brain concussion put tail-
back Norm Canty out of action
during the first week of practice.
The sick list has posed serious
problems for trainer Jim Hunt and
Team physician Dr. Alfred W.
Coxon. The ironic part of the
whole injury picture is that this
is the year when the Wolverines
are least equipped depth-wise to
handle such a flood of mishaps.
This is the final week to make
Senior Picture appointments. You
may sign up from 1:30 to 5:30
until Fri. at the Student Publi-
cations Building.

JIM IENSON of Williams was
point man with 10. He grabbed
first place in both the high and.
low hurdles. Right behind him was;
Glen Coury of Hinsdale House with
nine points, followed by Norm Nei-
dermier of Adams and Hal Keifer
of Hayden, each with eight points.
Behind the top two houses came
Hinsdale with 12 1/10 points and
Cooley with 12.
In the Independent League
the Newman Club racked up 43
points to put a stop to the For-
esters' try for another title. The
Foresters had only 35 points.
Also participating in the meet
were the Lester Co-op and the
The Newman Club placed first
in four events, as did the Forest-
ers, but the Newman Club won on
its second and third place points.
High man for the victors was Ar-
nie Hanavalt who snapped the
tape first in the 440 and the 100
yard dash.
Jack Williams crossed the fin-
ish line first twice for the Forest-
ers, winning both the mile and the
high jump.

Gopher Drills
Pass Offense
portion of Tuesday's University of
Minnesota football practice was
given over to passing. Coach Wes
Fesler kept the Gophers busy pol-
ishing up their own pass plays and
working on pass defense in prepar-
ation for their Big Ten battle at
Michigan Saturday.
The Minnesota star this year is
their all-American candidate, Paul
Giel. The passing great has led
the Gophers so far this season with
his pin-point accuracy.
