SPLASH ON ROAD:

U.S. Medal Famine

s OSU

By DOUG HELLER'
The dual meet season for the
Wolverine swimmers ends today at
Ohio State with Coach Gus Stager
not certain that he needs to take
his entire team to Columbus in
order to beat the Buckeyes.
OSU, once perennial national
threats (their 11 NCAA swimming
titles are the most for any school
with Michigan second at 10), have
fallen on miserable times in recent
years while Indiana and Michigan
,have dominated the Big Ten.
Stager explains that the big
reason Ohio State is no longer a
power is that they reduced swim-
ming scholarships several years
ago.
The coach continues, "They
thought that they could make
swimmers, like the Big Ten used
to be able to, but now swimmers
have to be good when they're re-
cruited, or they'll never be good
enough." ,
This year the Buckeyes are
strongest in diving withyChuck
Knorr, second in the nation last
year on the one meter board and
third at three meters. In addition,
Jim Kirklin was fourth at three
meters a year ago.
Only Swimming Threat
Only Jeff Jackman has Stager
worried among the Buckeyes'
swimmers, as his :22.2 in the 50-
yard freestyle is better than any

Other than that, the Wolverine
coach sees Lonnie Harrison as a
dark horse in the distance free-
styles.
"But heck, I don't see how they
can give us any trouble" said Sta-
ger yesterday. "Yet every time we
go down there with less than our
full strength expecting to walk1
away with the meet they manage
to make us uncomfortable."
In the national swimming sta-
tistics through the past week,
Stager finds support for his cau-
tious confidence. Juan Bello's
1:43.5 in the 200-yard freestyle
against Indiana is almost one-
and-one-half seconds better than
anyone else in the nation so far
this season.
Not His Best
But Stager said, "I don't think
the freestyle's Bello's best race. I
think he should be better in the
200-individual medley." Bello is
fourth so far this year in the 200
IM.'
In other events where Michigan
now ranks among the nation's top
five, butterflyer Tom Arusoo is
third at 200 yards, and the 400-
yard medley relay team is fourth.
Stager and his team are looking
right past OSU to the Big Ten con-
ference meet in Matt Mann pool
in two weeks. Apparently, schedule
makers are out to play suicide with
attendance figures as they sched-

In the MSU Relays.
Michigan runners won the two-
mile relay, but failed to place in
any of the others. The Wolverine
mile contingent was forced to
withdraw from its race when one
member was struck with a leg
cramp.
Michigan's relay teams should
regain some of their past forum
when Ron Kutschinski and Tom
Kearney return. Both were way-
laid by minor injuries before last
weekend's meets in New York and,
East Lansing.
Ron to Run?
The flashy two-mile unit took a
third and a first over the weekend,
but had to borrow a pair of run-
ners from other units, thus hurt-
ing their performances.
Assistant track coach Dave Mar-
tin said yesterday that Kutschinski
"might" compete in today's meet.
"He ran on it yesterday and to-

day," noted Martin after the team
had finished preparations for the
meet. "But it's still a little stiff
and he might decide to wait a
week. It will be up to him."
High jumper Clarence Martin
was also injured before the MSU
meet. Suffering from painful shin
splints, the leaping junior failed
to qualify by missing at 6'-4"
three straight times.
"I'd say the shot put is still our
weakeset event," added Martin.
"Unless one of these guys really
fires up, we won't even place in
the Big Ten's."
Senior strongman Bob Thomas
won the event in both the Western
Michigan and Michigan Federa-
tion Relays, but failed to place at
MSU. A consistent 52-foot per-
former, Thomas was outdone as
fifth place went to a Kansas State
athlete with a toss of 52'-7".
