1M Sportlight
. . ..by Dave Livingston
W[Q NTER SPORTS will have a last major fling tomorrow night
when the intramural department stages its annual "Open House"
at the Sports Building.
Intramural Director Earl Riskey and his associates have planned
a comprehensive program that includes championship contests in
basketball, swimming, and volleyball, all-campus tournaments in bad-
minton and gymnastics, a residence hall paddleball tourney, six
water polo matches, and exhibitions in five other sports.
From 6:30, when a whistle will signal the start of the first
basketball game, until 10:00 there will be more action packed
into the Hoover Street Sports Arena than the average spectator
will be able to take in.
It wouldn't be difficult to spend the entire evening at the varsity
pool. At 7:00 Michigan diving stars Jim Walters, Charlie Bates, Bud
Hurd, and Andy White will exhibit their specialty, at 7:30 they will
relinquish the pool to the residence halls for their championship
swimming meet, and at 9:00 the fraternities will take over with six
water polo matches.
Exhibitions in boxing, handball, and squash will be going on all
evening, as will the dorm paddleball tourney, while demonstrations
in boxing will get underway at 7:45 and last 'till things shut down at
10:00 (or until all the participants have been knocked out.)
Some of the top net talent on campus will be on hand for doubles
matches on the indoor tennis courts at 7:00 and at 7:45. Headlining
the tennis program will be Andy Paton former Wolverine captain
and Big Ten singles champ, Bob Dixon, the Michigan Open titlist, and
Pete Paules and Bob Paley, a couple of Coach Bill Murphy's prize
~ varsity proteges.
Cage Champs Named .. .
HE OPENING basketball games at 6:30 will match Gomberg and
Green for the residence halls "B" title and Sigma Chi and Delta
Tau Delta for fraternity laurels. Both Gomberg and Sigma Chi hit the
jackpot on the hardwood, for another Gomberg five will oppose Hins-
dale for the dorm "A" crown at 9:00 while at 7:45 the Sig Chis will
send a second quintet against Phi Delta Theta .for the fraternity "A"
championship. At the same time as the Sigma Chi-Phi Delt tilt
Fletcher will meet the "Lucky Seven" for the independent title. At
9:00 Delta Sigma Delta and Phi Chi clash for professional fraternity
The scene will take on somewhat of an international flavor
at 8:30 when a pair of the better local volleyball aggregations,
the Turks and the Latvians, meet for the International Center
* title.
With the stage about set for the onslaught of the spring outdoor
sports, it might be well to take a glance at the standings of he var-
ious intramural leagues. The totals, however, are not completely ac-
curate since several sports are still in the process of completion.
Gomberg Paces Dorms .. .
GOMBERG is continuing to set the same pace it did last year when
it walked off with residence hall all-year honors. The South
Quadders have won six of the nine dorm titles already determined to
amass a total of 775 points, taking the top spots in outdoor track, touch
football, wrestling, handball, relays, and water polo.
Close on the heels of the Gomberg athletes are Cooley, with
671 points and a championship in cross-country; Adams, boasting
651 points and the volleyball crown, and Williams with 632 points.
Allen-Rumsey (499), Lloyd (483), Reeves (464), Taylor (452),:
Strauss (426), and Huber (420), round out the top ten for the dorms.
Greene grabbed the only other individual title awarded when it won
the dual swimming championship.
Phi Delts Roll , .*.
PHI DELTA THETA paces the fraternity race with a total of 956
points and a pair of cinder titles-in indoor track and in the re-
cently completed relays. The house currently holding the runner-up
slot behind the Phi Delts, Delta Tau Delta (881), has yet to win a
championship. Third place Sigma Alpha Mu, with 851 all-year mark-
ers, won the touch football title and tied with Alpha Tau Omega forI
the wrestling laurels.
The ATOs and Pi Lambda Phi are knotted at 850 points for
fourth and fifth, followed by Lambda Chi Alpha (815), Sigma Chi
(805), Sigma Alpha Epsilon (794), and Theta Chi (782). Buried in
tenth place with 774 points is Sigma Phi Epsilon, the I-M power1
that has dominated the fraternity competition with all-year cham-
pionships in each of the last five years.
Newman Club heads the list of entries in the Independent
division with 440 points, followed by Standish Evans (385), For-
estry (366), MCF (258), Hawaiians (180), Nakamura (155), Flet- I
cher Hall and Turks (150), Latvians (130), Nelson House (125).

Newman Club, the top Independent outfit for the past three
,X years, copped major honors in both touch football and paddleball,
Forestry won the indoor track meet, Standish Evans captured the
handball tourney, and the Turks picked up all of their 150 points
by winning the Independent volleyball crown
THE PROFESSIONAL fraternity division finds, just as in the resi-
dence hall and independent leagues, the defending champion con-!
tinuing to show its stuff. But in this case last year's winner, Nul
Sigma Nu, holds but a slim one point markin over Delta Sigma Delta
-606 to 605. The Delta Sigs have won championships in touch foot-
ball, bowling, and swimming, as against the leader's single title in
handball, but Nu Sigma Nu has placed high consistently to assure its
first place notch.
The leaders are followed by Phi Alpha Kappa (486), Alpha Kappa
Kappa (483), Phi Delta Phi (459), Phi Chi (450), Alpha Kappa Psi
(397), Alpha Omega (382), Phi Delta Epsilon (348), and. Tau Epsi-
lon Rho (347).

Third Place
Title, 48-3 2

Alpha Tau Omega captured the
fraternity "A" league second place
playoff game from Phi Gamma
Delta last night in a tightly con-
tested game, 36-32.
After ATO went into a com-
manding 19-13 lead by halftime,
the Phi Gams put on a splurge in
the opening moments of the sec-
ond stanza to even the score at 23
points apiece at the midway point
of the period..
THE SCORE remained close,
with neither team leading by
more than two points until the
dying moments of the game. At
that point a behind-the-back pass
by Carl Kamhout to Randy Bishop
sent the ATO team in front by
two. It clinched the game sec-
onds later when Kelly Taractus
sunk a set shot.
Bill Booth' led the winners
with nine points while Lou Bal-
dacci countered eight.
Sigma Alpha Mu ran away
from Alpha Epsilon Pi in the first
half, leading by 24-17 at the end of
that period, and held its lead in
the latter half to win the third
place "A" playoff, 48-32 The Sam-
mies seemed able to score when
they needed and their close de-
fense kept the AEP's from causing
any real threat.
JOEL TAUBER scored 16 points
to pace the winners and teammate
Tom Kovan added 13 to the case.
Dave Kroll tallied 13 for the los-
Triangle won by forfeit over
Phi Kappa Sigma for the right
to play Theta Delta Chi in the
fourth place A playoff final.
In B games, Psi Upsilon won the
second place playoff from Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, 36-29; Alpha Delta
Phi defeated Theta Xi in the third
place playoff game, 29-26; and Chi
Phi downed Phi Sigma Delta, 20-
19, in the fourth place bracket

SAE MOVED to a 19-10 halftime
lead and held onto it to win, as
Dave Kested led the winners with
nine points.
The third place game provided
a somewhat closer contest, as
Theta Xi's second half rally
came within three points of vic-
tory. It was down. 21-8 at the
conclusion of the first half. Ray
Deny and Bob Durand account-
ed for 10 points a piece to pace
the winners.
Chi Phi capitalized on Phi Sig-
ma Delta's inability to score as it
held on to a 12-10 halftime lead
to squeak out a 20-19 win. The
winners' John Rapson, who led
the victors with 10 points, scored
the winning field goal with less

Wrist Injury Costs 'M1' Possible Title

'Mead To Get Season's Initial
Track Test in Cleveland Meet

The loss of one man tore to
shreds the championship hopes of
Michigan coach Newt Loken and
his Gymnastics squad.
An injury to captain Marv John-
son dropped the Wolverines from
the position of a definite challeng-
er for the Big Ten crown to a pre-
carious third place finish in the
conference meet held at Colum-
bus, Ohio, last weekend.
* * *
WITH THE threat from Michi-
gan gone, Illinois' favored defend-
ing champions turned the Satur-
day afternoon finals into a rout,
finishing more than 50 points
ahead of runner-up Minnesota.
The late season wrist injury
suffered by Johnson cost the
Wolverines more than 20 points,
according to Loken, more than
enough to boost the Maize and
Blue squad into second place.
As things turned out, the injury
nearly dropped the Wolverines in-
to fourth place behind Michigan
State. Loken's men edged the
Spartans, 71.5-71, and Johnson
played a big part in getting the
slim Michigan margin.
WORKING IN Friday's prelim-
inaries in spite of leis obviously
painful wrist, Johnson aggrevated
the injury so that he was unable
to put in more than a token ap-
pearance on Saturday.

To avoid being scratched from
the finals, the Windsor, Ontario,
senior performed one simple
routine in the free exercise and
side horse without using the bad
wrist and gained one point in
each event. Without this effort,
the Wolverines would have fin-
ished no better than fourth.
As was expected, Illini stars
Frank Bare, Jeff Austin, and Tomi
Gardner, and Michigan State's
great gymnast, Carl Rintz, were

title for the second consecutive
year, winning two events and tak-
ing the runner-up spot in two

LEE KRUMBHOLZ was the top
Wolverine gymnast. during the
two-day meet. The slender senior
contributed 25 points to the Maize
and Blue cause.
While the Wolverine team fin-
ish was disappointing but seem-
ingly unavoidable, the meet

pointed out several bright spots
in Michigan's gymnastics future.
Loken's men showed up excep-
tionally well on the trampoline,
one of the weaker events
throughout the season.
The Wolverines placed three
men in the trampoline finals. Bill
Winkler and Frank Adams were
both participating in their second
conference meet, while sophomore
Jack Burchfield reached the finals
in his initial attempt.
Also encouraging was the per-
formance of Tony San Antonio.
While improving steadily during
the regular season, the first se-
mester sophomore proved t be
very erratic. His performance in
the Big Ten meet was anything
but erratic, however, as he placed
sixth in the side horse and eighth
in the parallel bars after only one
semesterof Western Conference

Milt Mead has made his annual
spring change-over.
The Michigan senior has shed
his varsity bsketball uniform in
favor of the track suit that saw
him win the NCAA high jump ti-
tle last spring.

THIS WEEKEND he will return
to the scene of his initial triumph
in the collegiate hign jump pits
when he joins a small band of
Wolverines in the annual Knights
of Columbus meet at Cleveland
Friday night.
Two years ago Mead set a new
record for the affair when he
leaped 6' 6 11/16" after only a+
couple of weeks practice.1
This year, however, with even
less practice behind him he isn't:
accorded much of a chance to up-
set his long time adversary Ron

For Eligibility
OK'd by WHL
Beginning with the 1955 season,1
one year of residence at a mem-
ber school is required before a
hockey player will be eligible to
compete in the Western Intercol-
legiate Ice Hockey League.
At a meeting of faculty repre-
sentatives at the Broadmoor Ho-
tel in Colorado Springs last week-
end, this motion was passed in
order to ease the pressure of com-
plaints from Eastern schools which I
have such a requirement.
A motion was also passed
which limits the number of
games each team can play
throughout the season to 24, ex-
clusive of games during the
Christmas vacation.
A new schedule provision for the
coming year was passed which
states that each of the seven;
teams in the WHL must play at
least three four game series, and
must meet the other three teams
at least twice during the cam-

and Indiana, each of whom has
dealth the Wolverine team a bit-1
ter defeat within the last few#
In a dual meet the Illini four-1
some nipped Michigan by inches
to snare a last-ditch victory, while
just two weeks ago the Indiana
team won by an equally narrow
margin to edge the Maize and
Blue for the runner-up spot in thet
Big Ten Championships.t
The Wolverine two-mile relay 1
team of Roy Christiarsen, John
Moule, John Ross, and Pete Gray
will be up against just as tough
competition in Fordham, Pitts-
burgh, and Michigan State.
THREE MEN not eligible for
varsity competition will round out
Michigan's contribution to the
meet-freshman Laird Sloan in
the 600, transfer student Bob
Jones in the 1000, and former
Wolverine star Van Bruner in the
high hurdles.
The local tracksters began their
off-season jaunt last weekend in
the Milwaukee Relays without tooE
much luck.
The mile relay team was dis-
qualified for a foul while the two
mile team finished third. An en-
couraging sign was added, though,
when sophomore Ron Wallingford
turned in a 9:20.2 two mile, 14
seconds better than he's ever run
before, to finish fourth in that

When you come right down to it, you
smoke for one simple reason ... enjoy-
ment. And smoking enjoyment is all a
matter of taste. Yes, taste is what counts
in a cigarette. And Luckies taste better.
Two facts explain why Luckies taste
better. First, L.S./M.F.T.-Lucky Strike
means fine tobacco ...light, mild, good-
tasting tobacco. Second, Luckies are ac-
tually made better to taste better . .
always round, firm, fully packed to draw
freely and smoke evenly.
So, for the enjoyment you get from
better taste, and only from better taste,
Be Happy-Go Lucky. Get -a pack or a
carton of better-tasting Luckies today.
