A crowd of about fifty people,
including Harlan Hatcher watch-
ed the "Big Red" of Gomberg hand
Williams a 4-2 defeat in extra in-
nings, to win the Residence I-M
softball championship.
Extra Innings
With the game tied at 2-2 at the

went into extra innings. In the
top half of the eighth, Dick Kane

A walk to Rog Seymour, and a
wild pitch put both runners in

flied out to center field, and Kane
tagged up and streaked for home

allowing both Kane and Seymour
to score, making the score 4-2.-
In Williams' half of the eighth,
John Burkhart led off with a single
to left. With, one out, Frank Ver-

Lovell on a fly ball to left, to end
the game, anfl give Gomberg the
Championship.

Netters Favored To Win at Minnesota

Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS -- C o a c h Bill
Murphy and his tennis squad ar-
rived here by plane last night,
primed to defend their Big Ten
net title.
The tournament will start this
morning, and will be played
through Saturday.
Same Line-up
Before leaving Ann Arbor, Mur-!
phy said he was planning to use
the same line-up for the tourney,
as he did during the regular sea-
son's play. That means that the
singles players will be Barry Mac-
Kay, Dick Potter, Mark Jaffe, John
Harris, Dale Jensen, and Larry
Brown in that order :Alternate
Dick Cohen has also made the trip.
In the doubles, Michigan will use
the same teams of MacKay-Potter,
Jaffe-Harris, and Jensen-Brown.
Confident of doing well in the
tournament, Murphy did warn that
Michigan "might not have as easy
a time as everyone suspects. "Just
because we won the team matches
by big scores," he said, "doesn't
mean that our individual players

are that much better than our op-
ponents."
In For Trouble,
He said that if some of the in-
dividual matches which were close,
in the duel contests went the other
way in the tournament. "we could
be in for trouble."r
"We're hoping," he continued,
"to win two of the three doubles."
Also Jensen and Harris should win
the four and five singles titles."
And although he didn't say so,
MacKay, Potter and Jaffe, all un-
defeated this year, will also be'
favored to win their respective div-
isions.
In other words, barring upsets
or poor play, the Wolverines could

The true strength of Michigan's
netters should show up in the Big
Ten match.
JohnBHarris. Dale Jensen, and
Larry Brown have all had their
share of victories this season, but
not of glory. Continuously being
overshadowed by the top three
singles, they have been nearly as
strong in their positions as the
others. Harris and Jensen have
gone through the season unde-
feated in single; play, while Brown
has lost but twice,
Could Be Close
Because every match has the
same value, the play of these three

To Open. Next Season

By SI COLEMAN
Near the corner of state and
Hoover, between the Athletic Ad-
ministration Building and the I-M
Building, frequent passers-by have
noticed a new structure nearing
completion.
In achieving massive accomp-
lishment, the University has built,
the largest collegiate indoor swim-
ming pool in the country.
Capacity 3000
When completed, this new build-
ing will.holdralmost 3000 fans.
r Despite the present, rough finish,
one cannot help but marvel at the
beauty of the proposed pool.
The walls are lined with white
tile and there is a five to ten-foot
border surrounding the actual
swimming area. According to
swimming coach, Gus Stager, "the
purpose of this border is fof sani-
tary reasons, and to keep the spec-
tators away from the swimmers.
The pool itself is divided into
two parts, one for the swimmers
y' and the other for the divers. The
high diving platform is 25 feet
high and will be used primarily for
training purposes.
First of a Kind
Stager points out that "this is
the first indoor pool in which the
diving is separated from the swim-
ming area. It is unique and pro-
gressive, and it is sure to be copied
by other institutions."
Lighting for the pool is flour-
escent, providing the modern in-
direct effect. The pool will be kept

at a constant depth, and according
tos Stager, many people feel this
promotes faster swimming.
There are suitable facilities for
press coverage of the swimming
meets. Not only are there obser-
vation places for the press and
radio men, there is ample space
for television cameras.
