The Intramural Department, an-

Summer Session's activity on the
athletic front, announced yesterday
an ambitious schedule calling for

non-competitive activity in several
Preparing to launch its thirteenth
"Play For All" program, which will

drive, the department, through its

blank printed on this page. The
deadline for entries will be this
Saturday, June 29.
Director Webster announced that
actual competition in all sports would
start next week, the exact dates, to
be announced in the near future.
The schedule boasts enough varie-
ty to permit each student to com-
pete in his favorite sport. No athlete
can be too choosy.
"Wee World Series" Planned
The exponents of the nation's
number one game will have their
fling at softball. There'll be three
separate leagues, with the winner
of each pennant chase representing
his circuit in the Summer Sessiofs
own "Wee World Series."

America's greatest collegiate swim-
mers, will be the' scene, of weekly
competitive" splashes, and several

quately prepared for competitive
play can benefit from special instruc-

Dear All.
This is column one of a series.
Others will follow as the writer ful-
fills the obligations of his job. Of
course, that means that there'll be
many many columns. The writer,
too, may number his columns and
count by twos-that to avoid the om-
inous fifth.
It is customary for the editor who's
breaking out in print for the first
time to make some sort of a declara-
tion of policy. Part of that declara-
tion has already been made--a col-
umn when there's the urge, moti-
vated either by the presence of a
suitable topic, activity on the part
of the conscience, activity on the
part of the boss, or by any combina-
tion of the above.
As faras objectives are concerned,
we are not without a few. First of
all, we hope to function in good
spirit. This column hopes to be amus-
ing if it can be. In our perspective,
we hope to take an objective ap-
proach, perhaps leaning over to the
side from which we can see things
in a humorous light.
Nevertheless, we are not blind,j
and if we can make some whole-
some criticism, we'll let fly with
both barrels. However, it will
never be our aim to put anyone
to shame, or to add to the woes
of a party already burdened with
them-even though his troubles
are the wrotten fruit of his own
Naturally, we will be limited a.
far as local matter is concerned.
There is no varsity competition when
our tqwn is hot, which means a news
drought in that sector. However, the
intramural department sponsors and
directs a huge program during the
summer, and the activities there will
receive top play.
We feel too, that a large percent-
age of the summer students are in-
terested in the major league pen-
nant races, the big prize fights, golf
matches and the other activities
which comprise the national sports
scene. Sports on an international
level, of course, went out with the
frost. Our pages will carry enough
material from day to day to keep
each sports fan posted on the doings
of the Tigers, of Mr. Joe Louis, and
the other teams and person who a
news in sports.
The main point of this initial col-
umn is this-the writer thinks, plain-
ly speaking, that the average Amer-
ican today is a lot too soft. The
writer feels most of us would be a
lot more robust and feel a lot more
healthy if we got out in the open
more and exercised with wholesome
vigor and enthusiasm.
Hence, we announce at this time
a campaign to get you and you and
you outdoors for exercise.
There is no doubt that Ann

piloted his team through a tough
dual meet season without losing a
single decision, and won second place
in the Conference meet, is optimistic,
about Michigan chances. He expects
big things of Palmer and Emery and
regards Clark, a brilliant competitor
in match play, as a threat.
Lynn Reiss, Tom Tussing and John
Leidy, all varsity men, will also play,
but tourney rules limit a school to
five men, so they'll be on their own.
The tourney will stretch out over
a period of six consecutive days. The
field embarks today to settle two
important decisions-the medalist
and the team champion. The low 64
scorers of the first two days' play
will advance to the match play brac-
ket, which will begin with two 18
hole rounds on Wednesday and
Thursday, continue with a 36 hole
semi-final on Friday, and wind up
with the championship match over
an equal distance on Saturday.
Ten Midwest schools will be repre-
sented in the tourney. In addition
to Michigan's entry, there'll be golf-
ers from Illinois, the current Big Ten
champ, Ohio State, Iowa, Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Chicago, Notre Dame,
Michigan State, and Northwestern,
runner-up for the team champion-
ship last year.
