Adams House followed the pat-
tern it has set all year and breezed
to the Residence Hall 'A' basket-
ball title 60-29 over Wenley.
Not to be outdone Allen-Rumsey,
who along with Adams eats its
meals in dining room 3 of West
Quad, coasted home the winner in
Residence 'B' 35-13 over Williams.
Biessals Leads Attack
Adams, led by 6'8" Jim Biessal
was in control of the game from
the outset. Biessal was not the
scoring leader for Adams - Joe
Burtka and Dick Peterson took top
honors with 17 apiece - but it
was Biessal who controlled both
boards and repeatedly batted away
Wenley shots.
He only scored seven points but
four of these came in the first
minute of play.
As the half progressed Adams'
speed became evident. Peterson
repeatedly broke down court to
take a long pass and score on the
layup. He did this despite being
handicapped by three early fouls.
Zone Defense Beats Williams
Wenley was forced to shoot from
the outside the entire evening and
this they could not do. It is doubt-
ful, however, that if they had hit
for a higher percentage of their
shots they could have overcome
the Adams Juggernaut.
Allen-Rumsey, with its tight
zone defense, Randy Hughes hit-

ting on jump shots, and Bill Ro-
man, their big man hitting hook
shots, were too much for Williams.
Rumsey opened an 11-0 first
quarter lead and was never headed,
leading 20-6 at the half.
Their defense picked the Wil-
liams guards at the ten-second line
as they brought the ball down
court and completely clogged up
the Williams pivot, forcing Wil-
liams to shoot from outside, and
like Wenley, Williams could not
hit from the outside.

Sigma Phi Epsilon romped over
Sigma Nu, 41-28, last night at the
I-M Building to displace Sigma
Chi as the new social fraternity
'A' basketball champions.
In the social fraternity 'B' bas-
ketball finals, Phi Delta Theta'
came from behind to edge Sigma
Chi,+ 27-25 and win the title for
the second consecutive year.
The Sigma Phi Epsilon team
clearly showed that they were the
champions by using a very well
balanced attack to humble Sigma
Nu. After trailing, 2-0, Sig Eps'
Larry Lavercombe scored on a
layup and Sigma Phi Epsilon nev-
er trailed thereafter.
Sig Eps Lead at Half
The Sig Eps led at halftime,
18-12, with a dazzling nine point
performance by Lavercombe. The
lanky junior added seven more in
the second half for a total of 16
Sigma Nu's attack was high-
lighted by John Larson's 15 points.
But with the exception of Ed
Downing's seven points, Larson
was the only offensive threat that
Sigma Nu could muster.
Besides Lavercombe, Sigma Phi
Epsilon had support from Jim

Park who scored 19 and Chuck
Turner with seven.
The 'B' game was a tense con-
test between two fine defensive
Phi Delts Recover
Sigma Chi led at the half 12-9,
and through most of the second
half; but with a little over two
minutes remaining in the game,
the Phi Delts intercepted a Sigma
Chi pass and went on a scoring
splurge to seal the victory,
Phi Delta Theta's Jim Maddock
was the high point man of the
game with nine points. Jim Van
Pelt and Jerry Goebels added six
points each to the Phi Delt cause.
WASHINGTON (R) -- Repre-
sentative Keating (R-NY) pro-
posed yesterday that Congress
enact a "fair play code" for
professional team sports in-
stead of putting them all under
federal antitrust laws.
Keating suggested the code
as a middle approach in a dis-
pute among Congress members
over the big business aspects of
baseball and football.

Allen-Rumsey downed New-
berry Hall last night, 12-8, in the
feature game of the 26th I-M
Open House.
This was no doubt the oddest
basketball game that the Michi-
gan department has ever seen. It
was played under girls rules,
which involves changes that make
the game vastly different from
the normal basketball played in
the I-M Building.
Hands Tied
Besides the different rules, the
Allen-Rumsey team had to wear
boxing gloves during the game.
However, the boys still managed
to outpoint the girls, with a bal-
anced scoring attack.
Newberry claims a right to pro-
test the decision, since the victory
margin was only four points, and
the girls state that they were to
receive a five-point handicap.
