With the crowning of four touch football champions last Wednes-
day evening, the intramural program swings into its winter sports
season after completing activities in three sports.
The point standing thus far finds Sigma Alpha Mu and Gom-
berg House leading the pack with 327 and 331 points respectively.
The Sammies picked up their points by capturing the cross country
and football championships and gaining 77 points in indoor track
competition. Gomberg, last year's residence hall champion, captured
the indoor track meet, was runner-up in the grid playoffs, losing to
Lloyd House, 7-0, in the finals, and picked up 91 points in cross

While the newly acquired Paul
Bunyan Trophy quietly gathers
dust under the stadium in the
gloom of the Michigan locker
room, across the tracks on Ferry
Field the Wolverine football team
has its sights set on only one
thing-beating Ohio State.
That the undefeated Buckeyes
are currently rated the top team in
the country, that the winner Sat-
urday will at least share the Big
Ten title and probably get the Rose
Bowl nod, that the "experts" are
still shaking their collective heads
and giving Michigan little chance
of winning-all of this is of slight
concern to the men Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan is patiently drilling.

In the independent league, Newman Club copped the crowns in
the two sports played so far. They won the touch football champion-
ship, trouncing Evans Scholars in the finals, 21-0, and again nosed
out the golfers in the indoor track meet.
Announce Grid All-Stars *. *
The director of intramural sports, Earl Riskey, announced the
twenty-first annual residence hall, fraternity, and independent foot-
ball all-star teams yesterday afternoon.
Only two players repeated from last year's squad. For the fourth
straight year, Warren Wertheimer of Sigma Alpha Mu, captured the
quarterback slot. Russ Swaney, Phi Delta Theta back, again captured
all star honors.
The all-stars, picked, as in previous years, by the field supervisor,
officials, and members of the intramural staff. are selected primarily
of offensive performances.
The Sammies, present leaders in the social fraternity division,
placed two mien on the team. In addition to Wertheimer, Paul Groff-
sky, captain of the Wolverine basketball squad, was named the league's
.best left end. The Phi Delts, beaten in the finals, 7-6, also placed two
men on the "dream team." Doug Lawrence and Swaney were named
to the left half and fullback spots.
In the residence halls, Jack Watson, of Lloyd house, was the
only man to repeat on the all-star squad. The dormitory champions
also placed two others on the team.

soccer league plays every Sunday afternoon in the field south of the
Michigan Stadium. The program also includes cricket, badminton,
basketball, and volleyball.
Several all campus tournaments are now in progress and many
more will soon be started. Handball doubles, Badminton singles, pad-
dleball double, wrestling, and a "21" tourney are now running.

crowd at the Polo Grounds in two
years-46,565-saw the Giants
grab an early lead and hold on
to it tenaciously throughout the
rest of the afternoon. Bob Topp,
ex-Michigan end, scored one of
New York's touchdowns.
Browns Win
The Browns kept pace with the
Polo Grounders as they whipped
their favorite cousins, the Chicago
Bears, 39-10. It was Ceveland's
26th straight victory over the
Bears. Ace quarterback, George
Blanda was hurt in the game and
will probably be out of the Bear
lineup for the rest of the season.
With rookie Dale Atkeson lead-
ing the way, the Washington

17-14. The loss virtually knocked
the Steelers out of contention for

races,' practically everybody took
his turn kicking field goals, and
even assistant coach Don Robinson

as they warmed up before the prac-
tice settled into the grim business
of preparing for Ohio.
No -Injuries Saturday
For the first time this season the
Wolverines came through a Satur-
day of football without any serious
injuries. Tony Branoff and Jerry
' (Author of "Bt

Williams are definitely out of the
coming fray, but there is a good
chance that center Jim Bates can
see at least part-time action.
Bates will be a tremendous help
at linebacker if Michigan is to stop
the Buckeyes' split-T attack that
netted 407 yards on the ground
while running up a 28-6 margin
over Purdue and Len Dawson.
Ohio's dream backfield averaged
seven yards per running play as
Hopalong Cassady picked up 157
yards, Bobby Watkins 97, Hubert
Bobo 85, and quarterback Dave
Leggett 41 on "keeper" plays.
The Michigan line that Jack
Blott has molded into the leading
defensive outfit in the Conference
will face its severest test as it pits
its depth against the fleet Buckeye
backs. At the same time the Wol-
verine backfield will have its work
cut out, for Ohio has managed to
hold eight straight opponents to two
touchdowns or less per game.
Athletic Directors' Choice
Should Michigan upset Ohio State
it will share the Conference cham-
pionship with the Buckeyes, for
each will have 6-1 records, but the
Rose Bowl issue will revolve
around the vote of the Big Ten
Athletic Directors.
Each director will wire his
choice to Chicago where Commis-
sioner Tug Wilson will compile the
results. If one school receives a
majority of the votes it will auto-
matically receive the Bowl bid, but
should a 5-5 deadlock result Ohio
State will get the nod.
A new rule instituted this year
provides that in the case of such a
tie vote the team that last took
the Pasadena trip is eliminated.

Synopsis of Act I: A middle-aged English Professor named Phipps
has fallen desperately in love with a rosy-kneed coed named Mc-
Fetridge. Phipps doesn't know how to go about courting Miss
McFetridge, for, after all, he is a professor in the autumn of his
life, and she is a coed with rosy knees. Professor Twonkey, who
shares an office with Phipps, proposes the following plan: Phipps
will ask Miss McFetridge to come to his office for a conference late
in the afternoon. He will be urbane and charming and make fright-
fully witty remarks about English lit, and Miss McFetridge will
laugh and laugh. After an hour of this high-type hilarity, Phipps
will look at his watch, exclaim at the lateness of the hour, and insist
on driving Miss McFetridge home. On the way home, he will pass a
theatre that shows French movies. They'll see the movie, then have
an exquisite French dinner, and Miss McFetridge will be so enchanted
that she cannot but yield to his suit.
So at the beginning of Act II, we find Phipps in his office awaiting
the arrival of the poor young innocent. His hair is brushed; his
nails are clean; he has new leather patches on his elbows. There is
a knock on the door. He opens it and admits a gorgeous creature with
blue eyes and pink kneecaps.
PHIPPs: Ah, Miss McFetridge. Come in, my dear. Won't you sit
down? Cigarette?
Miss McF: Ooh, Philip Morris! I think they're marvy, don't you?
PHIPPS: I do indeed.
Miss McF: Hey, prof, would you mind opening a fresh pack?
PHIPPS: But I just opened this one a little while ago. It's perfectly
Miss McF: I know, prof, but I like to hear the snap when the
pack opens.
PHIPPS: Very well, my dear,
(He opens a fresh snap-open pack of Philip Morris. Miss
McFetridge claps her hands delightedly when she hears the
Miss McF: Hey, that fractures me! Man, I flip when I hear that
crazy snap! Do another one.
PHIPPs: All right.
(He snaps open another pack of Philip Morris)
Miss McF: (Ecstatically) Isn't that the living, breathing end? Do
two at once.
PHPPs: Well, if you insist...
(He does two at once)
Miss MCF: More! More!
PHIPPS: I'm afraid that's all I have.
Miss McF: Oh ... Well, what's up, prof? What did you want to
see me about?
PHIPPS: Oh, nothing in particular. Just wanted to have a little
chat, find out how you're enjoying the Shakespeare lectures.
Miss McF: I don't know, prof. By me Shakespeare is strictly a
PHIPPS: Indeed? Well, I must say I find your attitude refreshing.
One is so inclined toward slavish admiration when it comes to the
Bard. People forget that in many quarters Shakespeare is regarded
quite critically. Take, for example, the opinion of Shaw.
Miss McF: Artie?
PHIPPS: George Bernard...'You know, of course, his famous words.
Miss McF: I sure don't, dad.
PHIPPs: Shaw said he would like to dig up Shakespeare and throw
stones at him.
Miss McF: Did he dig him?
PHIPPs: No, I don't believe so.
Miss McF: I don't dig him either.
PHIPPS: (Looking at watch) Good heavens, I had no idea it was
so late. Come, my dear, I'll drive you home.
Miss McF: No, thanks. I always walk home. It's good for the
circulation in your legs. I got the best circulation in my legs of the
whole sophomore class. Ever notice how rosy my knees are?
PHIPPS: As a matter of fact, yes ... Look, you sure you don't want
a ride home? There's an excellent French movie on the way.
Miss McF: Not me, dad. I hate French pictures. The sub-titles
always disappear before I can read 'em. But if you want to go to the
movies, there's a new Tony Curtis picture downtown - a real gut-
buster. Tony plays this beggar, see, but he's really a prince only he
