Sooner Coach Returns
For NCAA Swim Meet

. by Paul Borman

SAM Downs DU, Phi Eps Triumph
In I-M Fraternity Cage Playoffs



Come One, Come All..
Michigan's Intramural Sports year will reach its highlight to-
morrow night with the annual I-M Open House at the Sports Build-
Once again there will be a conglomeration of 24 events going on
at the same times, different times and overlapping times in the
"three-ring circus" which should prove to be another triumph for its
"ringmasters," Earl Riskey, who also doubles as I-M sports director,
and Rod GrambeAu, his assistant.
This year's co-recreation basketball game will feature Allen-
Rumsey against Prescott. To protect and aid the "weaker sex", the
males will have to wear boxing gloves. A suggestion from the "strong-
er" sex has asked me to advise the referees to check the fems nails
for jagged edges, filed off points etc. since it will probably be a real
grudge battle.
The annual handball exhibition will feature five of Detroit's fin-
est against Michigan's team. The Wolverine squad is composed of Bill
Boonstra, Al Lifshay, Al Scharfelberger, Harry Stuhldreher and Ray
Smutek and has gained state recognition.
Let Philbin, Michigan's boxing coach, will feature five exhibi-
tion matches between students and six matches between Junior Depu-
ties from Willow Run.
Squash, Judo etc... .
Students and faculty will team up in the squash exhibitions when1
the Michigan players face five Detroiters. Playing on the local squad
will be Bob Dixon, Doug Hayes, Norm Ashton, Earl Ziegler and Ned
Heppenstal. They will face Detroiters John Green, Dick Turner, Rick
Austin, Len Weiner and John Blossum.
For those who are constantly being swarmed over or attacked,
there will be a judo exhibition provided by Harvey Glashow.
Charlie Anderson, wrestling coach Cliff Keen's assistant, has
arranged six exhibition mat matches.
} Gymnastics Coach Newt Loken will be working overtime tomorrow
night, but it will be for a good cause, since he will direct the All-
Campus Gymnastics tournament.
Besides the championship water polo match tomorrow night,
swimming fans will be treated to an exhibition water polo match
between two teams of "experts." Captaining one of the squads will be
former Wolverine swim great Bumpy Jones, while another former
Michigan natator, Walt Jeffries will lead the opposition.
Going into tomorrow's events all the leagues except the residence
halls will have the same leader as they did last year. These are Sigma
Phi Epsilon among the social fraternities, Nu Sigma Nu. among the
professionals and the Seldom Seen Kids among the, independents.
The residence halls, however, boast a new leader in Cooley House
of East Quadrangle. They have taken over the lead from Gomberg and
by gaining an "A" playoff birth in basketball and the finals in water
polo will stretch that lead over the "Big Red" of Gomberg.

Staving off a late second half
rally Zeta Beta Tau turned back
Delta Tau Delta, 29-25, to win the
I-M second place social fraternity
'A' basketball crown.
ZBT pulled out to a 20-10 lead
early in the second half and ap-
peared to have matters well in
hand when the Delts, led by Tom

Jones, began an uprising. The
Delts closed the gap steadily and
with two minutes to go a basket
by Jim Reider cut the ZBT lead
to 26-25. ZBT's' Mark Petricoff
made a free throw with 30 seconds
left to give them a two point lead
and Larry Mindel iced the victory
with a basket in the waning sec-

In the playoff for third place
Sigma Alpha Mu's Al Greenberg
made a basket and a free throw
with less than a minute to go to
give his team a 46-39 yictory over
Delta Upsilon.
The Sammies jumped off to an
early lead, but were unable to hold
it and the lead changed hands
several times during the second
With two minutes to go in the
game Greenberg hit a jump shot
to give SAM a 37-35 lead, but
DU's John Grettenberger tied the
game up seconds later. This bas-
ket set the stage for Greenberg's
three point play, which occurred
when he drove in for a layup, made
the basket and was fouled. The
free throw turned out to be the
winning point as Art Wible hit a
long jump shot to make the final
score 40-39.
Tom Pliner paced the Sammies
in the first half as he hit five
straight baskets to give them their
26-18 halftime lead.
Phi Epsilon Phi won the fourth
place battle byscoring three points
in the last 30 seconds to defeat
Theta Chi 26-23.
Theta Chi had a 23-21 lead with
three minutes to go, but they were
unable to score for the remainder
of the contest, while Phi EP netted
five points to give them the vic-
Les Janoff and Harvey Jame hit
free throws for Phi Ep to knot the
score at 23 all and Irwin Shaw hit
the winning point on a free throw
with 15 seconds remaining. Jame
added another two points to Phi
Ep's total on drive in in the last
second of play.
Dayton, Xavier
Victors in NIT
NEW YORK (MP)-Scrappy Xavi-
er (Ohio) turned on the steam
early in the second half yesterday,
roaring past favored Bradley with
a 16-4 drive and holding on for a
72-62 victory over the defending
champions and earning a spot in
the semifinals of the National In-
vitation Basketball Tournament.
Top seeded Dayton, outplayed
in the first half, finished strong
behind the shooting of sophomore
Frank Ose and defeated Fordham,
74-70, to move along with Xavier
(Ohio) into the semifinals.
Xavier, an eight point under-
dog, thus gained revenge for its
humiliating 116-81 setback by the
Bradley Braves in last year's
quarter finals.
The Musketeers from Cincin-
nati trailed 27-26 at halftime, but
they took the lead on Joe Viviano's
layup in the second half's opening
minute. They increased their
margin seconds later. However
Bradley tied the score on a three-
point play. Then Xavier put to-
gether a 12-1 strong, sparked by
Viviano's six points.

Dees Named
Indiana MVP
diana University's Big Ten basket-
ball champions named 6'8" Archie
Dees as their most valuable player
Dees, Big Ten scoring leader the
last two seasons, was honored last
year as the most valuable player
in the Conference and will be a
candidate for that selection again
this year. No player ever has won
that distinction twice.
Dees was also named yesterday
to the East squad for the annual
East-West all-star basketball game
in Kansas City Sunday afternoon.

Back into the swimming busi-
ness at the age of 73, Matt Mann,
coach of Wolverine squads for 29
years returns to Ann Arbor on
March 27 to match his team
against those of his former pupils
in the NCAA finals.
Leading the Big Eight cham-
pions, Oklahoma, Mann will send
his swimmers against the contin-
gents headed by former proteges
Gus Stager, Michigan, Chuck Mc-
Caffree, Michigan State; and Bob
Kiputh, Yale.
As 'Wolverine mentor, Mann
coached 16 Big Ten champions
plus 13 NCAA winners in addition
to amassing a record of 193 dual
meet victories against 25 losses.
When Stager succeeded him in
1953, over 20 Olympic stars plus
100 national champions and
Countless conference medalists

Stager, who was a Maize and Blue
swimmer from 1947-50, McCaffree
in pre-war days, Bumpy Jones of
Olympic fame, movie star Richard
Arlen, and his son, Matt Mann III.
Kiputh, mastermind of Yale's
powerhouse, moved into New Ha-
ven, after Mann had taken charge
of the team and coached it to its
first national championship, be-
sides winning every meet while
under his direction.,

Part of Mann's Influence4

al stars scheduled to compete

swim at Mann's Canadian can
while his teammate Dick Hanl
perfected many of his strokes u
der the coach's guidance.
Pete Fries, who provides mu
of Michigan's championship bf
ance, spent seven years under t
patient guidance of the coa

best teachers around." Touted

Aggies Undefeated
Moving to Oklahoma after
forced retirement at the end
the 1953 season, Mann boasts

NE REASON engineering standards at
General Motors are so high is that GM
recognizes engineering as a profession. And
the men who engineer the many different
products made by General Motors are
respected for the profession they practice.
That is why, when you are invited to join
General Motors as an engineer, you don't
simply take a job-you start a career.
It is a career that is rewarding both profes-
sionally and financially-starting on your first
day of association with General Motors at any
one of its 35 divisions and 126 plants in 70
cities and 19 states.
During your early days at GM, for example,
you work with a senior engineer who guides
your career along professional lines.
You are also actively encouraged to pursue
your education towards an advanced degree.

All this is for a reason-and a good one.
Many of the men who will fill the key posi-
tions at GM in the future are the young engi-
neers joining GM today. This is not theory,
it is fact. For 14 of our 33 Vice-Presidents are
engineers, 23 of our 42 Division General Man-
agers are engineers, too.
Today we are looking for young engineers-
such as you-who may fill these positions
tomorrow. The rewards-both professional
and financial-are substantial. If you feel you
have the ability, write us. It could be the most
important letter of your life.
June graditates.
A General Motors Representative will
be on vand to answer questions about
job opportunities with GM.,

That's what the girls always
say. The reasons are solid
- smart, casual styling,
blissfully comfortable fit,
top grade workmanship
and materials. Wear a pair
