Two teams, Sigma Alpha Mu
and Sigma Phi Epsilon, advanced
to the semi-finals of the Intra-
mural Social Fraternity Softball'
First Place Playoffs yesterday aft-
ernoon as the Sammies outscored
Delta Upsilon, 12-10, and the Sig
Eps shut out Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon,-5-0.
Sigma Alpha Mu combed the
offerings of DU hurler, Dave Cobb,
for seven hits and eight runs in
the first inning and were never
headed after that. Delta Upsilon
pulled up close in the final frame
with a five run rally which fea-
tured Jim Marman's home run
with the bases full.
PAUL GROFFSKY, Sammie
pitcher, less effective than usual,
allowed ten bases on balls and
seven hits, but compensated for
this with one of the longest in-
tramural home runs of the sea-
son. The wallop, coming with one
man on base in the third inning,
carried over 300 feet on the fly.
Sigma Phi Epsilon's shutout
was engineered by fast ball
flinger, Bob Schmidt, who com-
pletely mastered SAE, scattering
five hits and striking out thir-
teen batters. Dick Lowrey's two-
run single in the third was all
the batting support Schmidt
needed. However, the mounds-
man himself drove in a third
run In the inning and two more

Sig Ep runs tallied in the fourth
on a three base error.
In the only other softball game
yesterday Phi Delta Theta came
from behind to edge Sigma Nu,
9-7, in a Second Place Playoff
game.
Gridders Finish
Practice Saturday
With most of the other Big Ten
football squads having completed
spring practice, the Wolverine
eleven is taking it easy this week
in anticipation of their conclud-
ing scrimmage this Saturday.
Ohio State's spring practice
drew to an end last Saturday with
a "Red vs. White" intersquad
struggle under the critical eyes
of three big time collegiate
coaches. In addition to OSU head
coach Woody Hayes, Georgia Tech
backfield coach Frank Broyles and
line coach Gomer Jones of Okla-
homa also were on hand. They had
been speakers at Ohio's annual
high school football clinic.
Champaign, Ill. was the scene
of a "Blue vs. White" intersquad
meeting as the University of Illi-
nois wound up their spring drills
Saturday, without the services of
All-American halfback J. C. Caro-
line. Caroline has been devoting
most of his time to scholastic ef-
forts, said Coach Ray Elliot, and
hasn't been drilling regularly. i

Al Lubina's work in the one
and one-half mile race provided
the biggest surprise of the af-
ternoon for the Wolverine con-
tingent. Running the best race
of his career, the Cleveland jun-
ior finished third behind Gene
Matthews, of Purdue, and Indi-
ana's Jack Wellman, who fin-
ished second and first, respec-
tively, in the indoor title meet.
Jack Carroll's anchor lap in the
mile relay has strengthened Mi-
chigan's rating in the Big Tenl
440-yard field. Carroll ran a bril-
liant :48.2 quarter mile which al-
most gave the Wolverines the race.I

door 440-yard title holder, he out-
ran the Illini ace but wasn't quite
able to catch him.
