COURTNEY HALTS CHAMPS:

Phi Delts Beat SAM on One Hitter;
Advance to I-M Softball Semi-Finals

Undefeated Netters Face
Western Michigan Today

Andy Samosuk's homerun gave
Phi Delta Theta a 5-2 victory
yesterday over Sigma Alpha Mu.
Dick Courtney, pitching for the
Phi Delts, gave up only one hit,
as he lead his team into the soft-
ball semi-finals. The Sammies, de-
fending champions, were leading
2-1, when the winners tied it all
up. Samosuk then homored with
two mates aboard to cinch theG
game for the Phi Delts.
Another first place playoff game
ended with Delta Tau Delta com-
pletely smashing Theta Xi by -12-0
score. Jack Demorest and Al Price
were the big guns in the Delt at-
tack, with each of them bagging
roundtrippers with two mates
aboard.
Completing a second place play-
off game that was halted on Mon-
day with both sides deadlocked at
6-6, the Beta Theta Pi squad man-
aged to push across onerun to
defeat Delta Upsilon 7-6. Pre-
viously the Betas had scored four
runs in the final inning. Tom
Raisor singled to drive in the win-
ning marker for the Betas.
In the playoffs for third place,
Phi Kappa Tau won an 18-12 vic-I

with a triple in a game marked
by numerous errors.
Behind the pitching of Hanley
Gurwin, Tau Delta Phi defeated
Kappa Sigma, 14-1. Chuck Baraff
and Earl Terman were the heavy
hitters in the Tau Delt attack,
knocking out a homerun and
smashing three for four respec-
tively.
A grand slam homerun by Jack
Krapohl gave Alpha Tau Omega
a narrow 9-8 decision over Theta
Chi in still another third place

playoff game on muddy Ferry
Field.
Zeta Psi's fourth place 10-9 vic-
tory over Acacia was won in the
final frame when Nick Wassil
singled to drive in the winning
tally.
The other fourth place game
found Alpha Sigma Phi wallop-
ing Delta Kappa Epsilon 20-12.

The Michigan tennis team risks
its undefeated record against
Western Michigan College this af-
ternoon, at Kalamazoo.
Michigan sports a 6-0 win-loss
record going into the match, hav-
ing won three regular season meets
against Wisconsin, Northwestern,
and Wayne, in addition to three
pre-season matches.
Western has the same players
competing in the match today
that dropped the Wolverines last
year, 6-3. In 1954, these same
players won every match during
the regular season.
Although Coach Bill Murphy had
not yet considered Michigan's
probable starting lineup before he
left, it seems likely that he will
include the same netters that
faced Wisconsin last Saturday.
Barry Mackay should lead off
for the Wolverines in the number
one singles match. In the num-
ber two singles, Mark Jaffe will

probably tangle with James Far-
rell, and the number three match
will find Dick Potter pitted against
the Bronco's Ed Foster.
In the other single matches,
Michigan's Bob Nederlander, Al
Mann and Pete Paulus will prob-
ably fight it out against Charles
Donnelly, Denny Telder, and Clif-
ford Strong in the fourth, fifth,
and sixth matches, respectively,
Although Western can be opti-
mistic with the return of its whole
1954 championship squad, Michi-
gan has considerably improved
over last year's team.
Not only will Western have to
contend with many of last year's
Wolverines, but also with three
top-notch sophomores who have
been good enough to capture the
first three positions on the team.
But as Coach Murphy put it,
"This will be our toughest match
to date."

Besides aiming to win, Michigan
will be pointing to better last
spring's Coliseum time of 7:32,
which was only good enough for
a fourth place behind record-set-
ting Fordham, California, and
third-spot Oklahoma A&M.

By ALAN WINKELSTEIN
Hopes for next year's basket-
ball team appear considerably'
brighter due to the performances
of several newcomers in last
t, night's intrasquad contest.
The Blue team, paced by Har-
vey Williams, Milt Lingle, and
newcomer Bob Sullivan, outlasted
the Gold squad, 72 to 65, in a
closely fought contest at the I-M
Building.
Captain-elect, Tom Jorgenson,
playing for the Gold quintet, lead
the individual scoring with 26
Points. Three freshmen, Pete Til-
lotson, Bill Wright and Randy
Tarrier, also playing for the losers,
gave fine accounts of themselves.,
Sullivan played a strong offen-
sive game and was a major factor
in the Blue's victory. He chipped
in with 15 points and played a
fine floor game.
Tillotson, a 6'6" freshman cen-
ter, showed that 'he should be'
able to give Michigan additional
board strength. He rebounded very
well, and although handicapped
by the small court, was able to
display some scoring punch, as he
countered for 13 points.
Wright looked to be a threat
for the guard slot as he displayed
a fine game. He produced 12
y points and was all over the court
both on offense and defense. Tar-
rier showed promise of giving ad-
ditional board strength to the
squad.
Lingle Stars
The defensive star of the game
was Lingle, who was consistently
intercepting passes and stealing
the ball. He also aided the offen-

sive considerably with 13 points
and a number of assists.
Williams shared the scoring
honors with Sullivan for the Blue
five with 15 points on six field
goals and three fouls. Jimmy
Shearon played a good game, ac-
counting for 11 points, and play-
ing his typical fine floor game.
The game itself was close all the
way. The Blue squad got the lead
mid-way in the first half, and did
not relinquish it, although con-
stantly hard pressed by the Gold.
Jorgenson showed that he had
not lost any of his last season
sharpness, as he was consistently
hitting with his jump shot. The
new captain hit on 12 out of 24
shots, most of them from outside.
