Summer Sports Program
D raws lOutstandTalent

Approximately 575 Men
Participated In Events
Approximately 575 men participat-
ed in the formal athletic program
sponsored this summer by the Intra-
mural department, it was estimated
yesterday by Randolph W. Webster,
director of the program.
"Competition in several of the tour-
naments was the best we have ever
had," Mr. Webster said, "and there
seemed to be an increased enthusi-
asm for most of the sports. We had
especially successful baseball, golf
and tennis programs."
More than 270 took part at some
time or another in the baseball com-
petition. Three league of six teams
each were organized, and a "little
world's series" was played off Aug. 3,
with the Tigers, champions of the
National League conquering both the
Profs of the American League and
the Physical Eds of the International
League, to take the campus cham-
The Tigers had seven victories and
one defeat in their league, the lone
loss coming as a result of a forfeit
after the title had been clinched. This
forfeit enabled the team to take part
in the play-offs before disbanding
at the end of the six-week term. The
Physical Eds and Tappan Reds tied
for the leadership of the Interna-
tional League with seven wins and
two losses, but the Reds lost out in
a play-off, 7-4. The Profs led the
Faculty team by the games in the
American League.
Several teams were organized by
managers, while others were formed
from independent players who signed
up to take part in the general com-
A field of 72 participated in the
tennis singles tourney, which was won
last Wednesday by John Kidwell,
Varsity star. Kidwell downed Wil-
lard Klunzinger, former Michigan
State College ace, in the finals, to
climax a competition that included
some outstanding tennis in all brack-
ets. Klunzinger, Ann Arbor open
champion, downed last year's titleist,
