. ... By Phil Douglis
Phi Delta Theta, Gomberg House, Delta Sigma Delta, and the New-
man Club rule the Michigan Intramural scene, as Earl Riskey's mam-
moth sports program closes up shop for the summer.
The Phi Delts are the social fraternity champion for the 1953-54
school year, Delta Sigma Delta rules the professional fraternities,
Gomberg once again made a run away of the residence hall division,
and the Newman Club romped to A lopsided leadership of the inde-
pendent league.
Following are the virtual final standings in each division, showing
the top 10 teams in the social fraternity and residence hall league,
and the top five placers in the pro fraternity and independent divi-
sions, and the total number of points earned, as of Wednesday.

At least six Big Ten Conference
track meet records are in danger
of being toppled this week end as
the Big Ten schools send their
best track men to the outdoor title
meet at Purdue tomorrow and Sat-
Three conference meet records
have been tied or beaten in regu-
lar meets during the season, and
two records are within two-tenths
of a second of being tied.
Purdue's Gene Matthews has
whizzed past the old meet record
in the two-mile run of 9:10.4, set
by Wisconsin's Walter Mehl in
1938. Matthews ran the distance in
9:05.3, five seconds faster than the
old record. He will be pitted
against Ron Wallingford of Michi-
gan, Iowa's Rich Ferguson, and
Jack Wellman from Indiana. Fer-
guson is the NCAA title holder
and defending Big Ten champion
in the event, and is favored to re-
peat this year.
Williams Favored in Dash
With the wind at his back, the
Illini's Willie Williams sprinted the
100-yard race in :09.4, equalling

ing to five titles, even though the Phi Delts took the point title. The
Sammies won in softball, paddleball, handball, wrestling, and football.
Sigma Chi won four titles during the year to finish second in that
department, annexing crowns in swimming, both "A" and "B" bas-
r ketball, and foul shooting. The champion Phi Delts won three titles,
taking indoor and outdoor track along with the relays crown.
Zeta Beta Tau took three titles this year, winning the trophy
in tennis for the third straight year, and also in dual meet swimming
and,, volleyball.
Ta Delta Phi annexed two crowns within a week, its first IM
titles since 1933. The Tau Delts swept to both the table tennis and
bowling championships.
Delta Kappa Epsilon, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and Lambda Chi Alpha
round out the social fraternity champions, with the Dekes the golf
kings, and the Lambda Chis the cross country champs. The Sig Eps
took the water polo title
Gomberg Sweeps Nine Titles ...
Gomberg led the residence hall league with the amazing total of
nine championships. The Gomberg men swept outdoor track, football,
wrestling, handball, water polo, "A" Bowling, "A" basketball, the re-
lays, and foul shooting.
Cooley House won three titles, cross country, swimming, and in-
door track, Green won two championships, swimming (dual meets)
and "B" basketball. Michigan House took the softball title, Adams
won volleyball, Strauss won "B" bowling, Allen-Rumsey took table
tennis, Williams won paddleball, and Anderson swept golf.
Professional fraternity kingpins were dominated by Delta Sigma
Delta which triumphed in five sports. The Delt Sig Delts won football,
bowling, basketball, swimming and horseshoes.
Nu Sigma Nu took titles in handball and golf, while Phi Chi took
the volleyball crown and Alpha Kappa Kappa the paddleball title.
The Law Club won the table tennis crown, and Phi Delta Phi took
the softball title.
On the independent front Newman Club picked up four crowns,
triumphing in horseshoes, table tennis, paddleball and football. The
Evan Scholars were close behind, with three trophies, winning in foul
shooting, the relays, and handball. The Tortfeasors won in tennis, the
Hawaiians in bowling, Fletcher hall took basketball, Nelson house won
swimming, the Turks won volleyball and Forestry took honors in out-
door track.
Peterson Wins Trophy...
Don Peterson, star of Gomberg House, and ex-Michigan grid star,
won the Michigan Daily trophy for the second year running as the
outstanding intramural athlete of the year.
In tbie faculty league five teams are up there in the running, but
intramural officials have not as yet figured out who is the winner.
Air Force ROTC, Education, Navy ROTC, Poli Sci, and Psych, are
right up in the thick of things.
This then is the IM roundup of the year, and these teams and
personalities, along with the thousands who used the Intramural
Building for just plain fun all attest to the fact that Michigan's intra-
mural program is the nation's largest and finest.

Noire Dame,
NCAA Clash
On Grid TV
CHICAGO-(RP)-Notre Dame, a
bitter foe of controlled football.
telecasts, and the NCAA clashed
headon yesterday at a broadcasters
Both gave their opposite views
on the NCAA's "game-of-the-
week" program for college foot-
ball before the National Assn.. of
head on yesterday at a broadcast-
ers convention.
TV Hurts Small Schools
Walter Byers, executive secretary
of the NCAA, said the televising of
games involving such nationally
'known schools as Notre Dame
"tremendously hurt" game atten-
dance at many of the NCAA's 425
member schools.
But the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce,
executive vice president of Notre
Dame, said the NCAA's present
control policy is "reactionary, soc-
ialistic, artificial and of doubtful
The NCAA plan provides for tele-
casting what it feels is the top
game of the week selected by its
television committee, originating
from different sections of the
country each week.,
Policy May Change
Byers said, however, that the
NCAA is "not wedded" to the prin-
ciple of controlled television and
the policy could even be changed
for 1955.
Father Joyce contended that
"there are too many other variable
factors" which offset television's
purported impact on football at-
tendance and the NCAA "has a
tendency to make television the
whipping boy."
Father Joyce advocated the re-
laxing of all control.

the conference meet mark set by
Jesse Owens in 1935. Williams is
the pre-meet favorite, but should
have stiff competition from Min-
nesota's Harry Nash and MSC's
Edgar Brabham.
The Ilhini's Willard Thomas has
equalled the meet record of :14.0
in the 120-yard high hurdles, set
by Robert Osgood of Michigan in
1937. Ken Toye of Northwestern
should offer the most competition
for Thomson, the defending cham-
Thomson is also picked to cop
the low hurdles. He has covered
the 220-yard distance in :22.7, one-
tenth second off the meet record.
Tom Hughes, from Purdue, who
placed third in the event last year,
is a strong possibility for second.
MSC's John Corbelli, second last
year, posted :23.2 this season and
will give the leaders much trouble.
Michigan is resting its hopes on
Jim Love, who has run the event
in :23.5. In the Big Ten Relays he
was leading Thomson until he hit
a hurdle.
Gray FacesrMaynard
In the 880-yard race, which
promises to be one of the most ex-
citing events in the meet, Michi-
gan is pitting its star sophomore,
Pete Gray, against Illinois' Gene
Maynard. Gray ran the second
fastest outdoor half-mile in the
nation this spring in 1:52.1. Dur-
ing the indoor season he tied May-
nard in a meet with Illinois at
1:52.4, to set an indoor record for
the fastest American time for a
sophomore. Michigan's John Ross
and MSC's John Cook, the indoor
titlist, will also be strong contend-
ers for the crown.
The quarter-mile run should be
another close one. Ralph Fessen-
den is expected to carry the hon-
ors home to Illinois, although his
spring performances have been ex-
ceeded by Purdue's Ben Youtsey.
Youtsey has posted a blazing :48.0
for the quarter-mile, nine-tenths
second faster than Fessenden. Fes-
senden is the 1954 indoor champ.
MSC's Keven Gosper, with :48.5,
and Michigan's Grant Scruggs,
with :48.9, are strong contenders
for second.
Ross Defends Title
John Ross, ace Michigan miler,
and conference champion four
times, should give Indiana's Jim
Lambert and Lowell Zellers a hard
battle in the mile run. The Indiana
stars finished in a dead heat 4:09.5
during the season to come within
five-tenths of a second of the meet
mark set by Michigan's Don Mc-
Ewen in 1951.
Although not having run in the
event this season, the Illini's Wil-
lie Williams is favored to repeat as
the 220-yard champ. Michigan
State's Brabham and Gosper, who
both have been timed in :21.2,
will combine with Illinois' Corley
and Minnesota's Nash to offer Wil-
liams stiff competition.
Illinois' crack mile relay team is
expected to capture first in the
event at Purdue. The Illini's low-
est time for this season is 3:12.6,
two-tenths of a second behind the
meet record set by the 1946 Illinois

Michigan's hopes for a Confer-
ence crown in this week-end's Big
Ten Track and Field Champion-
ships at Purdue will be helped con-
siderably by one of the strongest
field contingents in the nation.
In the five field events, Michigan
has nine men among the top five
in each event, including two firsts.
By way of comparison, Illinois, the
top contender for the Conference
title, has but four men among the
top five in the five events. This is
an indication that the field events
may well be the deciding factor in
the race for the crown.
Wolverine weight-men Fritz Nil-
sson and Roy Pella dominate the
shot-put and the discus throw,
with Nilsson almost a cinch for
the two titles. But although there
are no Wolverines at the top of
the list in the jumping events,
there is a certainty of at least one,
and possibly two places in each of
those events.
Mead in High-Jump
In the high-jump, topped at the'
moment by Hoosier Cal Boyd with
a spring of 6'-7", Michigan's Milt
Mead is right in the running, a
scant three-quarters of an inch
behind the leader. But unless Mead
can beat Illinois' ace Ron Mitchell's
6'-6%" jump, he'll have to be con-
tent with third. An inch behind
Mead is another Wolverine, Mark
Booth, who has topped the bar at
6'-5%" this year.
The broad jump will see three
Michigan men in the running for
the title, all of them with a good
chance at placing high. Junior
Stielstra leads the Wolverine crew
with a leap of 22'-10". This is a
foot behind the best jump in the
conference so far this year, turned

in by sophomore Earl Smith of
Iowa. Michigan's Tom Hendricks,
recently returned to the track
squad from spring football, has
jumped 22'-9%", but he hasn't
bettered 22'-3" since he's been
The improvement shown by Wol-
verine Bill Michaels in recent
weeks indicates that he will be
right in there among the best in
the broad jump. In last week's
meet with MSC, Michaels won the
broad jump with a leap of 22'-6",
beating teammate Stielstra by two
?M' Vaulters Near Top
Michigan has two men within
shooting distance of the top in the
pole vault. The best performance
to date is an excellent 14' vault by
Bob Ehrhardt of Northwestern.
Behind him are a closely-bunched
three men, two of whom are from
Michigan. Illinois' Dale Foster has
gone 13' 9", three inches higher
than Michigan's Roger Maugh,
and five higher than Wolverine
John Hilberry.
Good performances by these
jumpers, and by the weight man
could well give Coach Don Can-
ham and his squad the needed
points to defeat Illinois and win:
the Big Ten title.
