I-M SPORTLIGHT
.. by Chuck Kozofl

4 HJISTORY threatens to repeat itself as I-M competitions draw to a
close.
Four teams now in first place in their leagues, Sigma Phi Epsi-
lon in the social fraternities, Gomberg in the residence halls, Seldom
Seen Kids in independent play and Nu Sigma Nu of the professional
fraternities, took the 1957 titles in their division.
Hoping to spoil a repeat performance by the Sig Eps is Phi Delta
* Theta which is narrowing the gap. The Phi Delts trail 1344 points to
the leader's 1383 with tennis, golf, horseshoes, 'A' and 'B' softball is
yet to be decided.
Putting the closing touches on two key I-M sports is the an-
nouncemerit of the social fraternity all-star teams in touch football
and basketball.
End slots went to Sig Lps Larry Lavercombe and Phi Gamma
Delta's John Burt with the center position awarded to Delta Tau
Delta's John Hoos. In the backfield are Phi Delt's Jack Lewis, 1958-59
Michigan basketball captain, Fram LeMire of Lambda Chi, Jack Roth
< of Pi Lambda Phi and John Locker of Phi Kappa Sigma.
Named to the basketball squad were Sigma Chi's Gordy Mor-
row, who paced his team to the I-M title, Delta Tau Delta's Tom
Jones, Sigma Nu's John Larson, Sigma Phi's Chuck Turner and Chi
Psi's Dick Spindle.
In the residence hall league Gomberg's hopes of winning their
sixth consecutive championship hang in the balance with a deter-
mined Cooley organization out to down the Big Red. With three resi-
dence sports contests to be completed Gomberg holds a twenty-six
point edge over the 'East Quad group, 1378 to 1352.
Adding a note of color to the tight residence hall race are the se-
lections for all-star teams by the I-M staff.
Gomberg's lai'geline has two representatives in Center Bill Mc-
Coll and End Ray Chapman with Cooley's Kim Greene taking pos-
session of the other end spot. Barry Marshall of Taylor and Mike
West of Strauss anchor the I-M star backfield with Huber's Steve Jor-
don and Reeves' Rich Robins in two other ball control positions.
Cooley's second place basketball team placed two men, Art Gnew-
uch and Greene, who was named to his second all-star team. Reid
Bushong, whose basket in an overtime period gave Van Tyne the
title, Michigan's Tom Rutila and Green's Dan Bennett complete the
quintet.
'at it Agin .
The Seldom Seen Kids' power-packed combination is well on its
way to a third year of domination in the independent circuit with
Evans Scholars and 1207 following at a distance. The Kids have al-
ready totaled '758 points to the Scholars' 567 and 1207's 524.
League dominance by these three teams is shown in the selection
of the all-star contingents with the Kids placing three of their backs,
Moby Benedict, Jack Watson and, Bill Steinmeyer in \the lineup. The
Scholars' took control of two-thirds of the line with Val Spangler
and Ralph Butz with Jack McKenzie of Mickey Mouse in the other
spot. Don Muir from 1207 landed the other backfield position.
Reappearing on the basketball court is Watson for the Kids along
with McKenzie who played for the Sweepers during the winter. The
Scholars' tall Dick Gates plus football star Gary Prahst with the
Buckeyes and Dale Keller of the Seven Dwarfs round out the rest of
the lineup.
Looking for another' I-M trophy for their mantle, Nu -Sigma Nu
has pushed to a solid lead in the professional fraternity division. Lead-
ing Psi Omega 750 to 653, they appear on the way to a repeat of their
1957 win.
Turkey's 506 point total in the international set dominates the
league. Spaced below are India, 404, and South America, 306, as they
put the finishing touches on their basketball league and warm up
for the May 15th swimming meet.

Strong Foe
Illinois Favored
In Big Ten Race
By BOB ROMANOFF
Michigan's tennis team plays
host today at 2:30 p.m. to a strong
contingent from Illinois who are
expected to hand the Wolverines
their second stiaight defeat.
The Illini are favored along with
Iowa to wrest the Big Ten Cham-
pionship away from Michigan.
Illinois defeated Iowa last week
by a convincing 6-3 score. Michi-
gan mentor Bill Murphy goes along
with the others in picking Illinois.
Better Than Notre Dame
Murphy says of the Illini, "They
are the best team including Notre
Dame that we will meet this year."
The Irish ended Michigan's 47
dual meet win streak last Monday.
The reason for all this praise
being showered on Illinois is the
fact that Coach Howard Braun
has four of his five top lettermen
returning from last year.
These include Captain Carl
Noble who is playing in the num-
ber -one slot for the third consecu-
tive season, junior Al Holtmann
who has lost only one dual meet
in an Illinois uniform, and that
was last year to Michigan's Mark
Jaffe.
Discharged from Service
Also returning are last year's
fourth and fifth men, George Gil-
more and Bob Breckenridge. The
Illini are further strengthened by
the return of Roger Bielefeld from
the service. He was Captain-elect
of the 1956 team.
The Wolverines will use basically
the same lineup they used against
Notre Dame.hThe lineup was Jon
Erickson,. John Harris, Bob Sas-
sone, George Korol, Frank Fulton
and Bill Vogt.
Doubles-Team Indefinite
The doubles teams, except for
the first one, for Michigan usually
aren't definite until the time of the
meet. The, first team is composed
of Erickson and Harris. From past
indications the second team should
be Fulton and John Wiley with
Korol and Vogt playing third
doubles.
Tomorrow Michigan should have
an easier time of it when they
play host to Wisconsin. The meet
will be held at the same time as
today's meet.

TENNIS ANYONE?-ew Hoad (left) serves and Pancho Gonzales returns it in last night's match
held at the Ann Arbor High School Gymnasium. Gonzales added another victory to his string as he
beat Hoad in a rugged match 14-12, 4-6, 10-8. Hoad teamed with Tony Trabert to defeat Gonzales
and Pancho Segura in the doubles set by the score of 7-5.
LEADS IN SERIES, 40-32:
Gonzales ToPS Hoad in Three Sets

Currently sharing first place
with Michigan State, the Univer-
sity of Michigan baseball team
journeyed to Madison, Wisconsin,
for today's game with the Badg-
ers, and will head for Northwest-
ern tomorrow to play a double-
header with last year's defending
champions.'
Michigan's title hopes may be
greatly enhanced by winning these
crucial games, depending on how
Michigan State fares against
Northwestern and Wisconsin,
whom they also play this weekend.
Weak Opponents
Wisconsin is mired in ninth spot
in the standings with a 2-4 record,
and Northwestern isn't much bet-
ter off as they hold down eighth
position with a 2-3 showing.
In the game against the Badgers
this afternoon, Coach Ray Fisher
expects to start left-hander John
Herrnstein and hopes that catcher
Jim Dickey, who leads the Big Ten
in RBI's with nine, can continue
his sensational .476 batting pace.
Dickey is also tied with several
others for the home run leader-
ship with two.
Pitcher Herrnstein will be after
his second conference victory and
will try to increase hisvtotal of 17
strikeouts which currently ties him
with Michigan State's Ron Per-
ranoski for league leadership.
Face Badger Ace
Facing Herrnstein will probably
be the ace righthander of the
Badger staff, George Schmidt, who
holds a 1-0 conference record, and
a 3.10 ERA. Wisconsin's left field-
er, Ron Nieman, is third in RBI's
with seven and is hitting the ball
at a .429 clip. Catcher Ed Cannon
leads the Badgers in hitting with
a season average of .375 and is
batting .412 in Big Ten competi-
tion.
Northwestern's main trouble this
year has stemmed from poor hit-
ting and even worse fielding, as
the Woldcats are last in the Big
Ten in both departments.
Michigan's team batting average
is .286 contrasted to Northwest-

World Professional Tennis i
Champion Pancho Gonzales added
one more win to his streak against
Lew Hoad last night, 14-12, 4-6,
10-8, as the Jack Kramer troupe
appeared at Ann Arbor High
School.
It was his 40th victory, against
32 for the Australian champion,
who led the series during the
early stages of the tour.
The match was steady and hard-
fought from the beginning, with
both players relying more on good
backcourt playing than their more
spectacular service aces and over-
heads. Both came to net quite
often, and fast crosscourt volleys
accounted for most of the winning
shots.
Long Set
The long first set went 25 games
without a service break, alternat-
ing between very short games and
deuced ones which saw the ad-
vantage points switching back and
forth before they finally went to
the server. Eventually Pancho
came through to take two love
games and the set.
Hoad, in turn, dominated the
second set, although Pancho be-
gan at this point to bring in his
publicized "big" serve to ace out
winners. But Lew never let him-
self get too far behind after
breaking through in the fifth game,
which he came up to win after
watching two aces go by him.
The third set was a series of
Varsity Plays.
Tiddlywinks
LONDON (/P) - Varsity teams
from Oxford and Cambridge uni-
versities clash today in what is
billed as the game of the century
to introduce a new collegiate
sport-tiddlywinks.
It's a pastime in which the ob-
ject is to snap small disks into
a little cup. You hold one disk be-
tween your thumb and forefinger,
press it against the edge of an-
other disk . . . and snap.
The Oxford and Cambridge
teams take it all seriously. They
insist the game deserves a place
on the Olympic games program.

short, fast games, most of which
the server took with a minimum
loss of points. The boys were both
tiring at this point, and they didn't
run for the crosscourt and passing
shots the way they had at the
beginning. They brought out hard
services and fIlashy net play to

hurry it through, and Gonzales
eventually took Hoad's serve in the
final game for the match.
In the preceding match, Tony
Trabert, Cincinnati boy turned
Californian, played to a 9-9 draw
with Pancho Segura, who leads
that series 29-25.
The doubles match at the end
saw the more refreshed team of

Trabert and Hoad beat the two
Panchos 7-5. It got off to a.clown-
ing start as Gonzales mimicking
his partner's two-handed back-
hand. Once the set really started
Trabert came through to win it
for his team.
During intermission, Tony took
time to call Barry MacKay, who
led the Wolverine tennis team to
the Big Ten and NCAA champion-
ships last year, the most promising
amateur in American tennis to-
day.
Praises MacKay
"He definitely has the equip-
ment to be our number one play-
er," the 1955 Wimbledon cham-
pion said, "and I think he'll make
the grade."
MacKay traveled with the Kra-'
mer pros for a while this spring,
but then left to play amateur
tournaments intthe West Coast
before going on to Wimbledon.
"We had him with us because
we thought we could help his
game-the experience and chal-
lenge offered was what he need-
ed," Trabert said. "I think it did,
although Barry wasn't really with
us long enough to tell."

Michigan football coach Bennie
Oosterbaan and his aides have
been spending much of their time
this spring trying to fill the holes
in Michigan's line-up caused by
graduation of 17 lettermen, but
the one spot the Wolverines ap
pear to have no trouble filling is
-fullback.
Three Lettermen
The reason Oosterbaan has no
worries about the fullback slot is
that he has three returning let-
termen: John Herrnstein, Gene
Sisinyak and Tony Rio, along with
a promising crop of freshmen at
the position.
Oosterbaan, though, is not ad-
mitting that his fullback problem

is completely solved. "We have
depth," the Wolverine mentor
said, but only Herrnstein is really
experienced at the position.
Herrnstein, currently on the
Wolverine baseball team and
therefore not out for spring foot-
ball, is known to be injury prone
and Oosterbaan has stated, "If
Herrnstein gets injured, the full-
back position will be up for grabs."
Four Way Fight
Sisinyak, Rio and freshmen
John Walker and Dennis Fitzger-
ald would fight it out for the
starting berth if injuries plagued
Herrnstein again next season."
The recent performances of
these two freshmen have made

the coaches fairly optimistic
about the fullback position. Fresh-
man coach, Wally Weber praised
them by saying, "Both will be
ready to step into Big Ten compe-
tition in the fall."
Walker is a 210-lb. all-stater
from Walled Lake. So far this
spring his play, especially on of-
fense, has pleased the entire
coaching staff.
Fitzgerald, a product of Ann Ar-
bor's St. Thomas High School and
a marine veteran, has, on the oth-
er hand, made his best showing
on defense. Weber terms him "a
killer" on defense.
If things become desperate Oos-
terbaan could call upon Jim By-
ers, last year's number two full
back, who is currently the Wol-
verine's first string center.

Delta Sigma Phi's hopes of a
spot in the first place playoffs of
fraternity softball were spoiled
yesterday as they were downed by
Alpha Tau Omega, 7-4.
Home runs by Bill Hernnstein
and John Pallin for ATO gave
pitcher Dave Ward all he needed
to hand the Delt Sigs their first
defeat in A softball.
Three-Hitter
Three hit pitching by Psi Ome-
ga's George Hoaglin halted Nu
Sigma Nu's pro fraternity group
while Psi Omega exploded for 11
runs to trounce Nu Sig, 11-1. A
five run third inning with insur-
ance marks in the first and sixth
frames accounted for Psi Omega's
total.
In other pro fraternity contests,
Psi Alpha Kappa backed their
pitcher, John VanIwaarden with
unblemished fielding to defeat
Alpha Omega, 11-3. An unearned

home run with one aboard gave
Law Club a 2-1 decision over Delta
Sigma Pi in the only other game.
16" Ball
Sigma Chi "B" humbled Delta
Tau Delta, 24-12 in the lone game
with the 16" sphere. The other
scheduled game between Theta
Chi and Chi Phi was postponed
until this afternoon.
Also called off by mutual agree-
ment was the contest between Phi
Delta Epsilon and Alpha Kappa
Psi in the professional circuit.
Winning by forfeit over Phi Delta
Chi was Alpha Kappa Kappa.
