With the winter intramural sports schedule almost completed,
it is again time to take a quick look at the standings of the various
divisions. Gomberg looks like a cinch to again capture the Residence
Hall title. The men from South Quad have already won five crowns
and hold a share of another championship. The dorm leaders have
taken outdoor track, 'A' and 'B' basketball, volleyball and the swim-
ming meet. They had to share wrestling with Cooley.
A two-way battle down to the wire looms between Sigma Alpha
Mu and Phi Delta Theta for the Social Fraternity championship. The
Sammies, a few points ahead at the moment, have taken three crowns:
football, cross country, and handball.
No exact point breakdown can be given for the many teams at
this moment. Quite a few contests must still be played before an ac-
curate appraisal of the standings can be made,
Unusual Happenings .. .
Throughout the long history of the intramural program at Michi-
gan there have been many unusual happenings. Many have gone un-
noticed but many have' been caught and recorded. A few choice tidbits
will be ptesented as examples.
On April 24, 1935 Delta Alpha Epsilon met Phi Gamma Delta in a
softball game. The tilt went three extra innings before the Phi Gams
went down to defeat, 28-27. Delta Alpha Epsilon went into the last
half of the ninth inning behind and were still going strong after scor-
ing 11 runs to win the contest.
Maurice Taylor of Alpha Omega, last man to shoot in the fraterni-
ty foul shooting contest of 1931, connected on rounds of 21 and 23. This
enabled his team to win the championship by one point. Three years
later, Sigma Alpha Epsilon won a basketball game by a little bit more
than that one marker. SAE averaged three tallies a minute to win,

Another instance of complete dominance by one team was in
1945 when Phi Rho Sigma blasted Chi Phi, 111-22. Bob Reynolds
scored 38 points to lead the onslaught. And then there was the Theta
Chi water polo team which captured five successive titles in the years
1929 to 1933. The goalie, Keith Benett, did not give up a single goal
during that period.
And Then There Was.. .
A dog belonging to one of the fraternities was laying on the
ground, only a short distance back of home plate. When a player going
after a short f.oul fly made a quick lunge for the ball, the dog, evidently
startled, grabbed the player by the throat. The wound was treated
at Health Service. Neither the dog nor the man showed ill effects.

The height of futility was reached in a touch football game played
between Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Gamma Delta on Tuesday, No-
vember 6, 1951. A rare snow storm visited Ann Arbor and covered the
field with six inches of snow. Both teams insisted that the game be
played. The tilt, plus an overtime period resulted in a scoreless tie. The
match was replayed at a later date.
Here's something for Bill Stern. Irv Goldstein played four years,
1929-32, as goalie on Phi Beta Delta's water polo squad and could not
swim. We're sorry, Bill, but that Greek house never did win a water
The powerful 1951-52 Law Club touch football aggregation went
nine straight games without having to punt. In the meantime, they
scored 151 points while holding their opponents scoreless. The 1931
championship soccer team, called the Cosmopolitans, had 18 players,
representing 10 different nations.

Ever wonder about the plaques in the lobby of the Sports Building?
They were obtained through the Ministry of Greece in 1929. They are
replicas of objects excavated in 1924 on the estate of an Athenian
Kappa Sigma had one awfully bad day on the basketball floor. The
cagers had to play two games in one day. The Kappa Sigs went down
to defeat by the scores of 57-7 and 51-2.
Wolverine Nine Travels South Today
By JACK HORWITZ
With the weather holding the
1955 Michigan baseball squad prac-
tices to virtually a standstill, the
team will head south for its an-
nual spring trip during the Spring
Recess, in an attempt to acquire
much needed experience.
The team, under close scrutini-
zation by Coach Ray Fisher, is as
yet untried and untested on the
baseball diamond. Theyhave been
limited to indoor infield and bat-
ting practice. This trip will give
the coaching staff an opportunity
to see what potential is available
for the coming season.
Open Against Delaware
The Wolverines open their
schedule tomorrow against the
University of Delaware in the first
encounter of the nine game tour..
On Saturday they will journey to
Washington, D.C., for an after-
noon game with Georgetown Uni-
In the 1954 jaunt through the
South, the Wolverines started off
with a defeat at the hands of
Delaware, 1-0 but followed with
15-9 drubbing of Georgetown.
This year, the Maize and Blue will
be out to avenge the Delaware loss
and add another victory over the
men from the nation's capital.
Georgetown should have one of
its best squads in many years.
All freshmen baseball candi-
dates report to Yost Field House
Monday, April 11, between 2
and 4 p.m. Bring your own
gloves and spikes.
The baseball squad continues its1
daily schedule of games meeting
the University of North Carolina,E
at Chapel Hill, on Tuesday. The
Tar Heels will field almost the
same squad as last year as they
have nine returning lettermen.
The weakest spot on the Tar Heel
squad will be pitching, with only
reliefer Tom Maultsby returning.
The Wolverines will continue
their trip through North Carolina
meeting two new rivals, Duke and
East Carolina Teachers College.
The tour will wind up with a two
game series against another group
of Marines from Camp LeJeune.
Fisher will take 18 men on the
Southern tour in an attempt to
arrive at a starting lineup for the
first home encounter against
Wayne University on April 12.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (f')--
The Kansas City Athletics yester-
day bought pitchers Ewell Black-
well and Tommy Gorman and first
baseman Dick Kryhoski fromn the
New York Yankees in a straight
The purchase price was an-
nounced as "in excess of $50,000."
Blackwell, once one of the finest
righthanded pitchers in the game
while with Cincinnati, was on the
Yankee voluntarily retired list last
year, suffering from a sore arm.
Gorman, Kryhoski Also Go
Gorman appeared in 11 games
with the Yanks last year after be-
ing brought up from the then Kan-
sas City Blues. His won-lost record
was 3-2 and his earned run aver-
age 3.88. He is a righthander.
Kryhoski, a veteran lefthanded
first baseman, served several years
in the Yankee organization before
he was traded to Detroit. He came
back to the Yankees in a winter
deal from the Baltimore Orioles.
The cash deal came as a sur-
prise, as owner Arnold Johnson
and his aides were believed to be
hatching a trade that would send
Arnold Portocarrero, the A's
righthanded pitcher, to the Yan-
Trade to Follow?
Whether the cash deal was the
forerunner to a trade was not im-

twice last year, but the Leather-
necks always field a strong team
with many fine semi-pro and pro-
fessional players. On Monday, the
diamondmen move over to Char-
lottesville for a game with the
University of Virginia.
