Sigma Phi Epsilon captured
three first places and went on to
win the I-M Fraternity Track
Crown yesterday afternoon at
Ferry Field with 18% points.
Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Delta
Theta both garnered 131/2 points
for a two-way tie for second place.
But it was Alpha Tau Omega's
Charles Gunn who made the big
news of the afternoon. Gunn set
a new Fraternity record in the'
100-yard dash when he captured
the event going away in the fast
time of :10.4, clipping three-tenths
second off the old record of :10.7.
Gunn took a commanding lead at
the start, and no one else even
came close to him.
Lyons Finishes Second
Phi' Gamma's Fred Lyons won
the battle for second when he
edged out Delta Upsilon's Keith
Heslip and Sigma Chi's Bruce
Maxian, who took third and
fourth, respectively.
Chuck Turner, George Rockwell
and Ken Shields brought the bacon
home of the SIg Eps. Turner sur-
ged out in front of Phi Gam's Jim
Kruthers on the final turn of the
440-yard run to beat him to the
wire by three-tenths of a second.
Turner posted :57.3 seconds for
the distance. Gunn, in third place,
was a half-second behind him.
In the mile run, Rockwell fol-

lowed the pace set by Tau Kappa
Epsilon's Bob Dicarlo for the first
half mile, then forged ahead on
the next curve, and ran away with
the race, leading Dicarlo in the
second place to finish by 50 yards.
Rockwell hit the tape in 4:52.2.
Third and fourth places fell to
Sigma Nu's Lee Sansum and Sig-
ma Alpha Mu's Larry Bizer, re-
spectively.
Shields Takes Shot
Shields put the shot 40 feet 11
inches on his last attempt to take
first in the shot putting event. A
toss of 38 feet 2 inches was good
enough to give second place to Phi
Kappa Psi's Bill Meyer, while John
Sayles copped third for Phi Delta,
Theta. Phi Gam's Lyons was in'
fourth.
The 880-yard run was a two-
way race for the first quarter mile,
but Lou Kwiker, running for the
Sammies, had tne track all to
himself for the last 220 yards as he
crossed the finish line in 2:09.5, 40
yards in front of second place Dick
Wood from Sig Eps.
In a close race right down to the
wire, Phi Delta Theta's Jim Barger
edged out Phi Kappa Sigma's Scott
McCollon in the last ten yards to
win the 65-yard high hurdles by
three lengths in :09.4. Sigma Chi's
Jay McCaughna and Delta Upsi-
lon's Bob Brown were on the heels
of the leaders, taking third and
fourth, respectively.
Honeyman Cops Low Hurdles
The 65-yard low hurdles turned
gut to be one of the closest matches
of the day, with barely one-tenth
second separating the first two
men across the line. Gene Honey-
man; carrying Phi Gamma Delta's
banner, broke the string just ahead
of ATO's Richard Davidson in
:08.7 seconds to win the event.
Tom Hayes took third for Theta
Chi, while Chi Psi's Brad White
was taking fourth.
Phi Kappa Psi's Steve Hauser
missed his first leap at the 5 foot
6 inch level, but came backon the
next two jumps to clear that
height, and 5'7" to win first place
in the high jump. Dick Spindle,
jumping for Chi Psi, cleared the
5'6" mark to garner second slot.
Theta Chi's Bob MacKenzie eas-
ily captured the running broad
jump with a 20'2" leap. Phi Delt's
Bob Sharp snatched second place
by only one inch with an 18'S"
jump.
Ken Fowler took first place
home to Theta Xi after clearing
the bar at 11'. Phi Delt's Phillip
Mitchell topped 10'6" for second
place.

Psi Omega,
Nu Sigs Cop
Grid Tilts
By BRUCE BENNETT
Psi Omega, Nu Sigma Nu and
Phi Delta Phi kept their slates
clean in the Professional Fratern-
ity football action last night at
Ferry Field, as each posted its
second straight shutout in the
young season.
The victories boosted each team
into undisputed possession of first
place in its respective league, with
two wins and no losses.
Sparked by the passing of Dick
Tinkham, Phi Delta Phi racked
up the biggest, score of the day,
ripping Alpha Kappa Psi 20-0.
Tinkham accounted for all
t h r e e touchdowns, passing to
Terry Iverson for two and Jim
Pohlman for the third.
Psi Omega Wins
For the second straight week Psi
Omega won its game without scor-
ing a touchdown, downing Delta
Theat Phi 2-0. The winning mar-
gin came in the second half when
Larry Youse trapped Duane Ber-
nard in the end zone for a safety.
Dan Cline hit John Campbell
with a three yard pass late in
the game to enable Nu Sigma Nu
to down Phi Alpha Kappa 6-0. It
was the passing of Cline, a vars-
ity halfback last year, that set up
the marker.
Meanwhile, Delta Sigma Delta
came from behind twice to eke
out a 14-13 win over Phi Rho
Sigma.
In other action, Alpha Kappa
Kappa downed Delta Sigma Pi 13-
0 and the Law Club beat Alpha
Rho Chi 12-0.

Information Reveals Identity
Of Average Michigan Player'

How would you describe the av-
erage Michigan football player?
By using figures found in the
62-man varsity roster, one would
discover the following about the
stereotyped Michigan gridder:
Would Be From Michigan
Chanches are that the rugged
athlete would be from the Wal-
verine State, since 36 of the 62
squad members are. By average,
he would be 202 years old, weigh
1951/2 lbs., and stand 5'11/2" tall.
His class status would be nearest

to that of a junior, he would prob-
ably not be a letter winner, and
his jersey number of 54 would
make him a lineman,
Heynen Fits Description
Does anyone on the present
squad fit this description? The
closest man, considering all points,
would be tackle Dick Heyen, who
is a junior from Grand Rapids,
Mich. By the roster, Heynen is 20
years old, weighs 195 lbs., and is
6' even. He wears the number 79
on the back of his uniform.

BIG time tennis seems to have reached its peak, after a long hard
struggle'by many of the greatest players of all time.
With the signing of the United States top-ranking amateur, Tony
Trabert, to a professional contract last Tuesday, amateur tennis will
probably lose its spark of national prominence, at least for a while.
Only Vic Sexias, a 31-year-old Davis Cup player who has seen his better
days, and Ham Richardson, former intercollegiate champion from
Tulane who must now concentrate on his studies as a Rhodes scholar,
remain in the spotlight. Even the much heralded young Australian
stars, Lew Hoad and Ken Rosewall, are rumored to be turning to the
professional ranks.
Rumors Are Flying...
RUMORS are also flying about Rex Hartwig; the other half of
Australia's champion doubles team of Hoad and Hartwig, whois
said to be considering a professional offer. So it seems as if- the ama-
teur ranks will be filled with virtual newcomers.
Where these men are coming from is still quite indefinite.. Bill
Talbert, captain of the United States Davis Cup team, writing in the
current issue of Sports Illustrated, seems to have :some good ideas.
Talbert lists such men ashGil Shea,
the fourth player on this year's
Davis Cup squad, Mike Green and
Sammy Giammalva, two former
national junior stars, and such fu- _...
ture hopefuls as Barry' MacKay,
Ron Holmberg, Earl Baumgardner
and Crawford Henry.
Most Michigan fans will be in-
terested in only one name among
those listed, that of MacKay. Cur-
rently the captain of the Wolver-
ine net squad, the towering jun-
ior is one of the finest tennis pros-
pects seen in Ann Arbor for many
years.
A tall lanky youth, MacKay
went undefeated in Conference
play during the past season in
which Michigan won the Western
Conference championship. He uses
his height to good advantage, with
a strong powerful serve and a
steady backhand. BARRYV MacKAY
MacKay has a tendency to be * Davis Cupper?,
quite inconsistent in competition,
but his record over the past few months has shown that his game has
steadied quite a bit. He toured the amateur circuit during the
summer, traveling with the top ranking amateurs around the country.
Great Expectations...
HE, along with Wolverine netter, Mark Jaffe, teamed to form one
of the top collegiate double teams in the nation. They gained
the semi-finals of the N.C.A.A. before losing to the eventual champions.
Talbert seems to think that practice and international play will
do wonders for the 20-year-old netter and he should be one of the
top rankin players, ip the country shortly.
Ever s new-the days of Bill Tilden, who started the usual one-
night stand for tennis exhibitions, the finest amateurs have headed
towards the pot of gold. Even the top Australian stars like Frank
Sedgman and Ken McGregor have tagged along. Many seem to
think that amateur tennis -will soon have the same status as amateur
baseball, with little being said about either.
But with such fine prospect for the future, how can the United
States go wrong? "Easy," the fans say! These kids won't be ready
for a long time and what do we do meanwhile. With the experience
and background of the youngsters so evident, such as MacKay, it's
hard to believe that these men, with a little competition on a national
and international basis, aren't ready now.

EAST LANSING - Michigan
State took its final heavy scrim-
mage in preparation for its na-
tionally televised contest against
the undefeated, untied, and un-
scored-upon Fighting Irish from
Notre Dame.
Junior left halfback, Clarence
Peaks is rated as the Spartans'
chief offensive threat. Peaks is
currently leading the Big Ten in
rushing with 158 yards in two
conference games, for a better
than five yards per-try average.
Michigan State plans to use a
multiple offense, running plays
from the T formation, the split T,
and the single wing. The Spartans
are planning to concentrate main-
ly on the single wing against Notre
Dame, as all three of the South
Benders' opponents have used a
straight T.

yesterday that he will quit inter-

he left the door wide open for a
change of heart.
The 34-year-old Czech relaxed
at his London hotel after his de-
feat Wednesday night over 10,000
meters and said: "As I feel at the
moment it is quite likely that I
shall not run again for my country
after the 1956 Olympics."
