) For Conference Outdoor Action

Fraternity 'A' Cagers Win Semis; Reeves Cops Diving

Sigma Chi and Phi Kappa Sig-
ma came through with blazing
wins to gain the final playoffs in
the I-M fraternity 'A' basketball
league.
Admirable back - board work
reaped John Morrow 13 points to
lead a well balanced offense that
sank Phi Gamma Delta, 47-30, be-
neath powerful Sigma Chi.

T'

Meanwhile 16 points by Earnest
Myers and 10 more by Jim Vuko-
vich spirited Phi Kappa Sigma,
last year's champion, to a 41-26
victory over Pi Lambda Phi.
Reeves House swept the Resi-
dence Halls Diving finals by
bagging first, second and fourth
places.

First went to Monte Bullard on
a fine showing, while Chris Keifer
grabbed second and Chuck Pickett
took fourth. Jack Johnson from
Cooley placed third, followed by
Bob Batten of Chicago House fifth,
Dave Perry of Williams sixth, Pat
Donohue of Gomberg seventh

and John Swanbery of Williams
eighth.
Two of the participants dove for
the fraternity diving finals, which
will be completed tomorrow night.

Great Team,
effort Wins
Indoor Title
"It's hard to single out any one
guy; they all were terrific."
Don Canham thus cited Satur-
day's great team ;effort on the part
of his Michigan track squad, lead-
ing to a second straight Western
Conference title. But he admitted
that there is work ahead.
Indoor track is one sport which,
on completion, leaves no room for
resting on laurels. The outdoor
season is approaching, and Can-
ham admits that it's hard to say
what' the future holds right now.
Perhaps some special mention
should go to the champions (and
near-champions) on the Wolver-
ines.
Jim Pace-the sprinter who al-
most won-was superb. Although
a photograph revealed that Michi-
gan State's Ed Brabham came in
first, with Pace second and North-
western's Chuck Carroll third, the
speedy soph ran admirably, and
should develop into a real threat
for the outdoor season.
Then there was the pride of
Helsinki, Finland - Eeles Land-
strom-who thrilled the crowd
with his record-breaking vault of
14'2". The old Jenison Fieldhouse
mark was set last year by Illinois'
Dale Foster. Landstrom's entrance
in the Finnish army next summer
will definitely leave a void in the
Michigan squad.
Pete Gray ran-beautifully to de-
fend his 1000-yard run supremacy,
only to succumb in the 880 after
running one torturous lap. Gray,
who has been in rather poor shape
for some time, confessed later that
"It was too much."
Ambitious Dave Owen has hinted
that he would like a spot on the
t U.S. Olympic squad, and the Big
Ten shot-put winner will be striv-
ing to improve his average heaves
of 'around 54'-W1_
Mark Booth continues to amaze
one and all with his ability to
jump almost a foot over his own
height. His winning jump was
6 6%"--he stands around 5'8".
Ron Wallingford provided one1
of the afternoon's thrills in the
two-mile. Running his typically
cautious race, he stayed several
feet' in-back of the leaders, then
brought the crowd yelling to its
feet when he called on his reserve
energy to win.,

Notes

Ron Kramer gained Michigan's
lone place for all-star basketball
laurels, as the Associated Press
named him to its second team
All-Big Ten squad.
Six seniors received first team
honors, including two each from
the league's winner and runner-
up, Iowa and Illinois, respectively.
Center Bill Logan and forward
Carl "Sugar" Cain represented
the champion Hawkeyes, while two
brilliant guards, Bill Ridley and
Paul Judson, took laurels for the
Illini.

RESTRING

Eastern collegiate hockey offi-
cials are again faced with the
difficult task of choosing which
two teams will play in the NCAA
playoffs, March 15-17.
A three-man committee is sched-
uled to meet today in Hanover,
N.H., to select the two squads that
will make the trip to Colorado
Springs. The choice, however, will
be far from an easy one.
Clarkson Tech, undefeated in 17
games through the end of last
month, liks seven four-year men
who will be ineligible to play in
the NCAA competition.
To make matters worse, St. Law-
rence, the East's next strongest

To win the WIHL title outright,
Michigan must win both games from
Michigan Tech.
If Michigan wins only one of the
two remaining games, then both
teams will have the same number of
points but Tech will still be one
game up in the "won column."

team, also will lose four stars to
the NCAA eligibility ruling.
Both teams had the normal
three-years-of-competition ruling
waived for the 1952-53 season.
There was the understanding for
1955-56 that if either school had
a male enrollment under 750 that
the players would be able to com-
pete in the finals. Both schools,
however, have exceeded this figure.#
Other Eastern NCAA possibili-
ties include Boston College, R.P.I.,
and Harvard.

Most Valuable Player
Between the second and third
periods of Saturday night's game
with Michigan Tech here, there
will be the presentation of the
new Hal Downes trophy to Michi-
gan's most valuable player for
1955-56.
Downes was a goalie for the
Wolverines in 1950-51. He lost his
life in 1952 when his plane was
shot do'wn over Korea. The trophy
is dedicated by former hockey 'M'
men, with the selection coming
this weekend via a vote of this
year's team.
