all-Scale I-M Program
o Continue in Summer
Chemistry, English, Economics, Physics
Departments Enter Faculty Softball League

Planning a full-scale intramural
sports program for the coming sum-
mer session, Howard C. Leibee, sum-
mer intramural director, revealed
yesterday that 51 entries have been
received for the all-campus tennis
tournament and 32 for the golf
tourney, while fourteen teams have
entered the volleyball league.
In addition, 35 individual and team
applications have been sent in for
softball competition,' but as yet they
have not been sorted into separate
leagues. Leibee also stated that quite
a few teams have entered the bad-
minton and handball loops.
Faculty Softball Planned
Plans are also well under way for

Brown Upsets
Davis Cup Star
At Winbledon
WIMBLEDON, July 1-(P)-Amer-
ica's Tom Brown, who came to the
all-England championships as in-
conspicuously as a carton of tennis
balls and turned out to be a time
bomb, smashed his way into the semi-
finals of the historic tournament to-
day with a straight set 6-2, 8-6, 6-4
victory over Ferenc Puncec, Yugo-
slav Davis Cup star.
The 23-year-old Californian will
clash with Yvon Petra, six-fort, sev-
en-inch French star, for the right to
trod the famous center court in Fri-
day's final.
Petra, who was well known in the
U.S. before the war, scored perhaps
the greatest triumph of his career
today in knocking out Dinny Pails of
Australia, the tournament's No. 1
seeded player, 7-5, 7-5, 6-8, 6-4.
Reaching the semi-finals in the
opposite bracket were Geoff Brown,
the ambidextrous Australian who was
seeded No. 3, and Jaroslav Drobny,
the Czech who earlier upset second
seeded Jack Kramer of California.
Brown eliminated Lennart Bergelin,
Sweden's top star, 13-11, 11-9, 6-3,
while Drobny ousted Pierre Pellizza
of France, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.
Following his victory over Puncec
today, Brown teamed with Kramer to
breeze into the third round of men's
doubles with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-2 win over
J,. Siba and J. Vodicha of Czechoslo-
Major League

of its kind since the summer of
1941. Four teams have already en-
tered, representing the Chemistry,
English, Economics, and Physics De-
partments. More are expected this
week to bring the total to around six
or eight. Any department which is
planning to enter the competition
should contact the Sports Building
immediately, Leibee added, so com-
plete rosters and schedules can be
worked out.
The intramural department hopes
to begin the campus tennis tourna-
ment sometime the second week of
the semester, with championships
in both singles and doubles.
Medal play in the golf tourney also
may get under way the second week,
with match play beginning the third
and continuing for two weeks.
Regular Program Continues
In addition to the team and tour-
nament competition, the usual in-
tramural sports program will be con-
tinued. Leibee stressed that the
Sports Building and its facilities will
be available to all students through-
out the summer whether or not they
participate on a team.
The swimming pool will be open
every afternoon, and swimming in-
struction will be provided by a staff
of well-qualified scholastic coaches
and other trained personnel.
The Sports Building, on Hoover
Street just off South State, will be
open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Golfers Take
Second Place
In NCAA Meet
Michigan's Big Ten golf titlists
paced by Dave Barclay swept to a
second place behind Stanford in the
National Collegiate tournament, at
Princeton, last week-end.
The well-balanced Wolverine squad
captured the runner-up spot without
placing a man among the. individual
leaders of the tournament.
Barclay's 147 was low score for the
Michigan men, followed by Ed Scha-
lon, Bill Courtright, and Roger Kess-
ler, with 157, 158, and 162 respective-
The entire tournament consisted
of 72 holes of medal play with only
the first 36 counting in team scoring.
Low scorers qualified of the first
three rounds then qualified for in-
dividual title play.
Barclay, Schalon, and Courtright
qualified for Michigan and finished
with 72 hole totals of 307, 310, and
315, respectively. George Hamer of
Georgia, took the individual title

Hal Newhouser
Only Tiger On
All-Star Squad{
CHICAGO, July 1-0P)-Selection
of a 25-player American League
squad today for the All-Star game
at Boston's Fenway Park on July
9 reflected unusual shortstop strength
in the junior circuit and the collapse
of the world champion Detroit Tig-
The Bengals landed only hurlin'
Hal Newhouser on the roster selected
by the eight league managers, who
grabbed eight players from the pace-
setting Boston Red Sox. Missing from
the All-Star array were such former
Tiger picks as Hank Greenberg, Dick
Wakefield and Birdie Tebbets.
Shortstop Power
American league shortstop power
is emphasized by the fact that Man-
ager Lou Boudreau of Cleveland, who
appeared in three previous All-Star
games, failed to make the grade.
In preference to the cat-like Bou-
dreau, the managers picked Luke
Appling, the Chicago White Sox' only
representative; Johnny Pesky of the
Red Sox; and Vern Stephens of the
St. Louis Browns, all boasting better
hitting records than the Tribe pilot.
It was suspected, however, that Lou's
own vote for Appling cost him an
All-Star berth.
Six Make Debut
Six players will make their All-
Star debuts, including Boston's Pes-
ky and pitchers Dave (Boo) Ferris
and Mickey Harris, Mickey Vernon
of Washington, George Stirnweiss of
New York, Sam Chapman of Phila-
delphia and Jack Kramer of St.
The second-place New York Yan-
kees placed six players, including
Manager-Catcher Bill Dickey, named
to the classic for the 11th time.
Cleveland landed three, while Wash-
;ngton, St. Louis and Philadelphia
won two-berths each.
Eighteen Repeat
Among the 18 repeaters were Bos-
ton's Ted Williams,.Bobby Doerr, Hal
Wagner, Rudy York and Dom Di
Maggio; Bobby Feller, Frankie Hayes
and Ken Keltner of Cleveland; Joe
Gordon, Joe Di Maggio, Charley Kel-
ler, Spud Chandler and Dickey of
the Yankees; Stan Spence of Wash-
ington; Stephens of the Brownies;
Appling of the White Sox; Buddy
Rosar of the A's; and Detroit's New-
Steve O'Neill of Detroit, automati-
cally named pilot because of his
1945 pennant triumph, will send the
American Leaguers after their ninth
victory over the National League
which has won four of the 12 games
Fazio Cops Canada Open
MONTREAL, July 1-MP)-After a

to each other, George Fazio of Los
Angeles came though today to cap-

Canadian Cen Championship, by
beating veteran Dick Metz of Ar-
kansas City, Kas., by one stroke in
an 18-hole playoff.
