NOTHING, including a Supreme Court decision, can prevent Gomberg
from capturing its third straight all-year intramurals champion-
ship in the Residence Halls Division.
With 1421 points already in its scoring column, the South Quad-
ders are mathematically insured of staving off any miracuolus bid by
second-place Lloyd, which has totaled 1267 points.
The social fraternity race is far from over, with a three-team dog-
fight currently going on for the coveted number one spot. Sigma Alpha
Mu is leading the pack at present, but Phi Delta Theta is only four
points behind and SAE is but 20 off the pace. Softball, golf, tennis
and horseshoes, the only incomplete sports on the schedule, will be
followed with more than casual interest this year because of the
closeness of the race.
Newman Club and Nu Sigma Nu, in the Independent and Pro-
fessional Fraternity divisions, respectively, are both comfortably in
first place. Here is a listing of the top teams in each league, with, points

Proposed Plan for Fraternities . .
INTRAMURALS Director Earl Riskey told us yesterday of a proposed
change in the social fraternity setup. One sore spot in this division
has been the inability of smaller houses to field teams in the three
major sports-touch football, basketball and softball-and also, the
fact that smaller fraternities very seldom walk off with trophies in
Here's the proposed solution: allow these houses to double up for
' the major sports and participate in a separate league. Points would
be awarded as in the regular loop play, and winners would receive
trophies. The points obtained in this "little league," or whatever it
will be called, will be added on to tne regular social fraternity tally
Already under consideration by the Interfraternity Council, the plan
will, of course, need the approval of the houses involved. Riskey be-
lieves that the idea is an excellent one, and thinks that it will create
more interest among these smaller teams. "One thing that should be
considered," commented Riskey, "is that some of these fraternities
have never won a single trophy."
The object of the whole intramurals system is to stimulate as
many individuals as possible to participate in the sports program.
This new innovation can go a long way in that direction.

Versatility might well be John
Schubeck's middle name,
He is known to most as one of
the outstandnig sophomores on the
current Michigan golf squad. Ac-
cording to Coach Bert Katen-
meyer Schubeck is "potentially a
very fine golfer."
This conservative comment is!
no doubt a result of Schubeck's
showing in the past two weeks. In
the Purdue-OSU triangular meet
held in Columbus, he was low med-
alist for the day.
Three days later at Michigan
State, Schubeck had a nine hole
round of one under par, but was
unable to shoot consistently, and
wound up three over par for the
