I-M SPORTLIGHT
.... by B.ce Bennett
Bigger and Better
WHEN BIGGER and better I-M Open Houses are built, Earl Riskey
will build them.
Riskey, who is supervisor of activities down at the Sports Build-
ing, has planned another spectacular for tonight's 26th Annual Open
House worthy of a DeMille.
A total of 16 sports, featuring over 500 athletes and officials,
is on the program which starts at 6:30 and should wind up sometime
after 10.
Somewhere between 3,000 and 4,000 people are expected to walk,
free of charge, through the doors of the Sports Building and many
of them should suffer varying degrees of mental anguish in trying
to decide which of the many conflicting events to watch.
Originally the Open House was started to show off the new
Sports Building, but now it signifies the end of the I-M winter sports
season..
Individual and team championships will be decided in several
sports and to add to the general festive air exhibitions by both var-
sity' nen and students will be. given in other sports.
In addition to the major sports such as basketball and swimming,
spectatators will have a chance to observe several sports which do
not have a large following on campus such as water polo and boxing,
The night's top attraction seems to be a real live co-ed basketball
game between Helen Newberry and Allen-Rumsey. The game will be
' played according to the girl's rules with the only catch being that
the men will play wearing boxing gloves.
Another Allen-Rumsey team will get things rolling in the Other
end of the big gymnasium when they take Williams House on in the
finals of residence hall 'B' basketball at 6:30.
Other cage action will feature Phi Delta. Theta against last year's
champs Sigma Chi in the social fraternity 'B' playoffs, Sigma Phi
Epsilon against Sigma Nu in the 'A' title clash, Wenley against Adams
in 'the residence hall 'A' final, Phi Alpha Kappa against Phi Delta Phi
in the professional fraternity finale, and last year's independent all
year titlists the Seldom Seen Kids against Evans Scholars in the
championship tilt of that division.
Cold Blood and Insanity
For the more cold blooded fans the residence hall water polo
final between Chicago and Reeves, to take place af r the completion
of swimming, should prove interesting.
According to Riskey the game is less brutai than in recent years
because of rules changes which prevent the offensive team from
'ganging up' on the opposing goalies. But this one change will not
.'affect the fierce battles for control of the ball that constantly take
'place. One fairly battered player summed up the suicidal game in
this way, "You' don't have to be crazy to play this game-it just helps."
Down in the boxing room six matches are on schedule. The bouts
are informal title clashes between men who have been working out
all semester under the direction of- Let Philben.
Philben was boxing instructor here when Michigan had a full
time ring program and now he comes down on a part time basis to
give instruction to those who want it. Riskey said that Philben has
promised an exciting show.
Next door to the boxing room members of the freshman wrestling
team will put on an exhibition and in the swimming pool members
of the diving team will give a show of exhibition and clown diving.
Besides these varsity competitors nationally ranked handball and
squash players from Detroit will play matches against student teams
down In the 'pits' of the Sports Building.
For those visitors who might just be more a bit confused by it all,
programs listing events, participants, and titles at stake will be pro-
vided.

!Pill Pushers, Theta Chi,
Also Gain Playoff Wins

By BOB ROMANOFF
Twelve championships were de-
cided last night in one of the busi-
est nights of intra-mural basket-
ball.
Taylor eked out a 23-21 victory
over Reeves to annex the second
place Residencehail "B" cham-
pionship. The scoring was evenly
spread out through both halves
with the victors entering the sec-
ond eighteen minutes of play on
the short end of a 13-11 score.
In the second half both teams
traded baskets right down to the
siren ending the game. Taylor,
however, had just enough punch
in them to outscore the game
Reeves team by four points as

Montreal Nips

TORONTO (P)-The Montreal
Canadians moved into undisputed
possession of second place in the
National Hockey League last night
by defeating the Toronto Maple
Leafs, 2-1.
Bernie Geoffrion was the hero
for Les Canadiens, the "Big Boom
Boom" just beat the clock as he
broke the 1-1 tie with a goal just
30 seconds before the game ended.
Geoffrion's goal, the best of the
night, capped an uphill battle by
the Canadiens who found the
Leafs hardly-resembling the team
which will finish in fifth place at

Toronto 2-l;

their high scorer Joe DeCook
hooped in eight points which gave
him 13 points for the night. Bob
Keavy was high for the losers with
six.
Close Game
Independent basketball pro-
duced another "heart breaker" for
second place as the Pill Pushers
slipped by the Christian Medical
Society Juniors .24-23. A low scor-
ing first half ended with the CMS
Jrs. on top of a 9-8 score.
Behind 24-21 with only a few
seconds left CMS Jr's Bob Hall
drove in for a score and then time
ran out. Wes Sikkema led the vic-
tors with 11 points, while Hall led
both teams with 12.
See-Saw Battle
Third place for the Social fra-
ternitie. went to Theta Chi as
they out-lasted Alpha Epsilon Pi
30-27. Playing a thirdof the first
half with only three men AEPI
went into the last stanza of play
with Theta Chi holding a com-
fortable 18-10 lead.
In the second half AEPi played
like an entirely different team as
they scored twelve straight points
with their high scorer Don Mazin
scoring six of his 10 points in that
spree. Theta Chi was not to be
denied victory as they regained
their shooting eye to outfight the
losers in a see-saw battle which
saw the lead change hands three
times.
Jim Beck of Theta Chi was the
game's best marksman with 13-
points to his credit.
"Big Red" Win
Gomberg trounced Adams 39-24
to take third place in the Resi-
dence Hall "B" league. The strong
Gomberg team spotted Adams to
a 16-13 lead in the first half and
then proceeded to smear Adams in
the second period as they rolled
over the losers by a 26-8 margin.
