University, headed by Prof. Elmer D.
Mitchell, will again this summer offer
a complete sports program to Stm-
mer Session students, featuring 15

Students desiring to compete are
asked to obtain entry blanks at the
Intramural building and submit them
to Mr. Webster's office there.
There will also be offered a com-
prehensive program of non-competi-
tive activities of recreational or phys-
ically beneficial nature, according to
Mr. Webster.
The Intramural Department has
F found it necessary to establish a pol-
icy of giving no other awards beside
the Intramural ribbons to winners
of the summers sports competitions,
but winners and runners-up in the
various tournaments and team events
may purchase at cost through the de-
partment the official intramural
medals, cups, statuettes, and plaques
given during the regular year.

ball, squash, swimming, and bad-
minton to those who desire it.

a.m. to 8 p.m., and the pool from
10:30 a.m. to noon and from 3 p.m.
to 6 p.m., daily except Sundays and
holidays. The fee for use of the
building will be $2.00 with a $.50 re-r
fund on return of lock and towel.
All-Star Game
Squad Named
By McCarthy
CHICAGO, June 27.-()-Let the
arguments now begin; for here, fans,
is the hand-picked squad which will
represent the American League
against the National League's best in
the fifth annual all-star game at
Washington's Griffith Stadium, home
of the Senators, Wednesday, July 7.
Selected by Manager Joe McCarthy
of the world-champion New York'
Yankees, who will pilot the American
League team by virtue of having led
his club to its league title last year,
and whose picks were based on sug-
gestions from the other seven man-
agers, the squad lines up thus:
Takes Six Pitchers
Pitchers -Vernon Gomez, New
York; Lefty Grove, Boston; Tommy
Bridges, Detroit; Mel Harder, Cleve-
land; Wes Ferrell, Washington, and
Monty Stratton, Chicago.
Catchers-Bill Dickey, New York;
Rick Ferrell, Washington, and Luke
Sewell, ,Chicago.
Infielders-Lou Gehrig and Bob
Rolfe, New York; Jimmy Foxx and
Manager Joe Cronin, Boston; Charley
Gehringer .and Hank Greenberg, De-
troit; Harland Clift, St. Louis, and
Buddy Myer, Washington.
Outfielders-Earl Averill, Cleve-
land; Roy (Beau) Bell, St. Louis; Ro-
ger Cramer, Boston; Joe Di Maggio,
New York; Wally Moses, Philadel-

phia, and Gerald Walker, Detroit.
Five All-Time All-Stars
Five of .these stalwarts, Gehrig,
Gomez, Dickey Foxx and Gehringer,
have been members of every Amer-
ican League squad since the all-star
game was inaugurated in 1933 at Chi-
cago. Nine others, Grove, Cramer,
Cronin, Harder, Averill, the Ferrell
brothers Myer and DiMaggio, have
seen action in -baseball's prize mid-
summer event. The remaining nine
rank as "rookies" in this kind of
baseball warfare.
In collecting a force for making
the junior circuit's bid to resume
domination aver the older league,
-interrupted for the only time last year
when the Nationals won, 4 to 3, at
Boston, McCarthy will have at his
disposal four righthanded hurlers,
Harder, Wes Ferrell, Bridges and
Stratton. Grove and Gomez will
take care of the southpaw pitching.
There may be arguments over the
absence of Detroit's Roxie Lawson,
Red Ruffing and Monte Pearson of
the Yankees, or Buck Newsom of
Boston, among others.
Attention of all Summer Session
students is called to the fact that on
all streets except those equipped with

The University of Michigan's Intramural Building, shown above from the Ferry Field side, is the largst
building of its kind in the United States, and will house a complete program of sports for students in the
present Summer Session. Its entrance is located on Hoover Avenue just west of State Street, four blocks
from the campus.

In less than 24 years, since it was
first established at the University of
Michigan, the Intramural Depart-
ment has grown from a branch of
the Athletic Association, using the
latter's equipment, to an independent
department with a vast plant and fa-
cilities which rank with the best col-
lege intramural sports systems in the
United States.
Founded in 1913 at the beginning
of the school year, the department
offered a program of 13 sports, cor-
responding to those in which Mich-
igan boasted varsities but with the,
difference that these were not so'
much for the athletically gifted as for
the athletically minded students.
More than 35 sports are now listed.
