One thing that makes Michigan so means, that the activities have been
enjoyable has been the advantage well-organized.

Larger Scale Activity
There will be a regular plan of or-
ganization as in the past, but it will
be on a much larger scale than ever
before. With a great many students
returning, leagues will be formed,
and fraternities, residence halls and
independents will vie for the various
As has always been the Intramural
policy, everything shall be based up-
on competition. There will be many
more tournaments than ever in such
sports as softball, tennis, golf, and
horseshoes. This is in direct contrast
to the proposed Physical Fitness Pro-
gram which has an emphasis on cal-
isthenics and endurance. The more
{ competitive spirit that can be
aroused, the more successful the pro-
gram will be.
The Sports Building is one of the
finest of its kind in the entire nation,
containing a beautiful swimming
pool, squash and handball courts,
and many other indoor conveniences.
It also offers the best of outdoor
facilities including many softball
diamonds, tennis courts, and horse-
shoe pits for the pleasure of those
who are interested.
Mitchell, Riskey, Heads in Charge
The year now being completed has
been the most successful in Intra-
mural history. Dr. Elmer Mitchell
and Earl Riskey who head Intramur-
al Sports, point with pride to the
great number of games that have
been played this year. Dr. Mitchell
explained, "I am particularly happy,
to see such active participation this
year, when it is so necessary to be in
good physical condition. The boys
who look for sound physical training
will be able eto render more service
to our country."
There have been good contests and
bad ones, but always a spirit of fun
and good sportsmanship. Accidents
have been surprisingly scarce, which

fifteen and more.
Last year Phi Delta Theta won the
fraternity all-year championship,
and Williams House took the resi-
dence hall title. It is very interesting
to note that both teams are leading
again this year, and have an excel-
lent chance to repeat as champions.
The Phi Delts have a big lead in the
fraternity loop, and Williams has a
slight margin in the residence hall

THE FIRST Wolverine squadron of
the United States Navy started
training last week in Iowa City, Iowa.
Heading the Michigan contingent is
speedy Dave Nelson of football and
baseball fame. Along with Nelson will
be big Paul Goldsmith, John Bach-
man and about 15 others.
On hand to greet them when
they arrived were Harlan Frau-
mann and Bob (Flop) Flora, ex-
Wolverine grid stars."Both of these
burly lads now direct a part of the
Iowa training station's huge ath-
letic program.
ALL-AMERICAN Bob Westfall is
already enlisted in the Army Air
Corps but the way things look now
the husky fullback may be able to
sneak in a season of professional
The Detroit Lions are passng the
word around that Bullet Bob will
play for them but only time and the
Army will tell.
TWO EX - BIG TEN Baseball
stars are burning up the Texas
League with the brilliant hitting.
The fence-busters are Illini Wally
Evers and Michigan's Dick Wake-
field. Right now Wally is toting a
slightly higher batting average
than Dick but is behind in home
runs. Both boys played on the
Beaumont club and lead the Texas
Loop in hitting.
Athletic Director Fritz Crisler left
a week ago for Denver. where he will
serve on the faculty of a college and
high school football clinic. Fritz will
stay there two weeks and then re-
turn to make immediate plans for
the fall grid practice.

Big Ten Crown

last year Cliff left school to take a
job in a defense plant, in Jackson
in order to make enough money to
come back to school. Now Cliff has
enough laughing lettuce, and his re-
turn is anxiously awaited by Michi-
gan fans.
For the catching job Coach Fisher
may be faced with another problem.
Capain Dixie Harms, number one
backstop last season, has graduated,
Bud Jessop, Harm's understudy, may
not go out for the diamond sport next
spring, devoting his time instead to
his studying. Jessop, an equal of
Harms, defensively but a weak batter,
is an important cog in the Varsity
machine. Two sophomores are ready
to answer the call for catching duty,
however. Elmer Swanson and Bob
Chappius are the two lads, and both
have looked good to Ray Fisher.
Swanson made his showing in fresh-
man practice while Chappius has
proven himself in the summer season
just completed.
Must Replace The "Pro"
Pro Boim's departure from the
shaded walks and ivy covered build-
ings, which comprised the campus, is
a hard blow to the Wolverines. Boim
was not only a great pitcher, he was
a great competitor. He was the clown
and spirit of the team. Michigan will
miss his pitching; they will also miss
his fire and spirit, and the latter
plays a big part in winning ball
games. Michigan must replace Boim
in order to have at least a three-man
starting staff. Don Smith, southpaw,
may be the man, but as yet he has
not proved himself.
Stenberg at Second
Bob Stenberg will again hold down
the keystone sack as he did last sea-
son. His hitting must improve if he
is to benefit the Wolverine cause to
any extent, nevertheless. If Bob be-
gins to hit next season then the Var-
sity's chances of success will soar.
Don Robinson will play shortstop
next season. There is no doubt about
Robbie's ability. Last year he was
the leading Wolverine slugger, boast-
ing a .467 average, and defensively
Don is as good as they come so Ray
Fisher can sleep when the question
of shortstops is mentioned.
Also the right field spot should be
well taken care of with Paul White
again patrolling the outer garden.
