TENNIS ATTRACTION-Pancho Gonzales, world professional
tennis champion for seven years in a row, will engage Lew Hoad
at Ann Arbor High School tonight at 8 p.m. They appear as the
feature attraction of Jace Kramer's net tour.
Gonzales-Hoad Featured
On Tennis Card Tonight

Pancho Gonzales, considered the
greatest tennis player still in com-
petition, will meet Lew Hoad this
evening at Ann Arbor High SchoolE
as the feature match of Jack
Kramer's famous tennis tour./
Kramer will also bring 'Tony
Trabert and Pancho Segura to
town to complete the bill of the
net extravaganza. The show will
begin at 8 p.m., and tickets will
cost $1.50 for grandstand seats,
and three dollars for reserved sec-
tion.
Besides the two featured singles
matches, each three-set contests,
there will be doubles competition,
as the two Panchos team against
Trabert and Hoad. At the begin-
ning of the tour Gonzales was

paired with Trabert, but after
they developed a serious feud,
Trabert chose to play with Hoad.
Gonzales and Hoad have battled
across the country to determine
the world's professional champion.
The former captured the crown
for the seventh straight year last
weekend at Cleveland as he de-
feated the Australian in five sets.
Hoad is the world amateur cham-
pion.
Porterfield
Sold To Rues
The Boston Red Sox last night
announced the sale of veteran
righthander Bob Porterfield to
the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Red Sox declined to dis-
close the amount received, but it
was believed silghtly higher than
the waiver price. All American
League teams had to waive on
Porterf-ield, once one of baseball's
top hurlers. Porterfield will be 34
in August, showed little of his old
form in the two years he was with
Boston.
Porterfield was obtained by the
Red Sox from Washington after
the 1955 season but went from bad
to worse. He had a 3-13 record in
1956 and a 4-4 mark last season.
Porterfield had no comment to
make about the trade.

By JIM BENAGH
Two of Michigan's all-time great
athletes, Bennie Oosterbaan and
Eddie Tolan, were among the
three sports stars named yesterday
to the state of Michigan's Sports
Hall of Fame.
The selections were announced
after a poll by sportswriters and
sportscasters in the state for
Michigan Week Activities.
The two appointees joined the
late Gus Dorais, of Notre Dame
and University of Detroit football
fame, in bringing the total of en-
shrined sportsmen to 18.
Sigs Victorious
InI kM Play
By BILL ZOLLA
Sigma Chi staged a last ditch
rally in the last half of the sixth
inning to beat Lambda Chi Alpha
12-11 in the first round of the I-M
social fraternity place softball
playoffs held yesterday at Ferry
Field.
Trailing by three runs, the Sigs
came up with a two run double by
pitcher Steve Stieler and a single
by Bob McCollum which knocked
in two more to sew up the win.
Stieler also banged out a homer
with a man on to help his own
cause.
The steady pitching of Dave
Cole and the good clutch hitting
of his Theta Xi teammates com-
bined to beat Alpha Delta Phi, 12-
7. Bill Wheat socked a three run
homer for the losers.
In the professional fraternity
circuit, Delta Theta Phi defeated
Alpha Rho Chi, 13-7. Jerry Col-
liige and Clay Williams smashed
home runs for the victors pro-
viding all the margin pitcher Norm
Goetzke needed.
Also in professional softball,
Delta Sigma Delta crushed Phi
Delta Phi, 12-1. Bill Adams and
Dick Courtney combined to spin
a neat three-hitter while Tbm
Vestevich smacked two home runs
and a single. Bob Chriver also
walloped a four-bagger for the
Victors.
In "B" social fraternity softball,
unbeaten Phi Sigma Delta con-
tinued their streak by whipping
Sigma Nu, 27-8. The Phi Sigs
broke away in the fourth with a
16 run outburst. Sigma Chi's B
team tallied half their runs in the
fourth while whipping Delta Tau
Delta, 24-11.
Jack Zachary hit two home runs
and a single, and Tom Patterson
drove in seven runs as Sigma
Alpha Epsilon rolled over ,Zeta
Psi, 20-7.
In residence hall "B" action,
Huber whipped Lloyd, 23-10.

The naming of Oosterbaan and
Tolan' gives Michigan four nomi-
nations to the coveted award. In
previous years, Willie Heston and
Fielding H. Yost were chosen. The
Hall of Fame began in 1955, when
Michigan Week was in its initial
stages.
For Oosterbaan, this was an-
other honor to add to his huge
accumulation of trophies. In his
long, colorful history at Michigan,
he has been a three-time All-
America end in football, Coach of
the Year (in 1948), and a member
of the Associated Press' all-time
All-America grid team.
"I wasindeed honored and very
happy with the honor," said
Oosterbaan modestly.
Tolan was the first trackman
ever to be accorded the recogni-
tion. He told Oosterbaan at a
banquet in Detroit yesterday that
he "was very happy and humble"
about the announcement.
The stubby, muscular Tolan
sprinted Michigan to some of its
greatest moments in track in 1929-
30-31. Included in his accomplish-
ments here was a world record,
:09.5 clocking in the 100-yd. dash.
This was before starting blocks
were used.
Later, he went on to annex three
gold medals in the 1932 Olympics,
setting Games' records in the 100-
