But the most important ingre-
dient to SMtU's winning formula
could well be their Coach "Red"
Barr, who has masterminded 77
straight dual meet wins for South-,
ern Methodist. Michigan Coach
Stager respectfully refers to Barr
as "The Fox."

er s "shave dawn" for the meet,
was probably the deciding blow.
f In comparing this year's Mus-
tangs to last year's squad, Barr
'benignly commented, "In s o m e
events we have more depth, but ir
others we're a little weaker."
"Heindenreich, Tietze, and Sch-
licher are good freestylers, Mind-
er and Schlicher are strong in the
butterfly, a n d Mills, of course,
will swim the backstroke. We have
been backing off a little this week
in training to rest up for the meet.
But what events we are strong in
depends on what races our besb
swimmers are in." He declined to
reveal what events t h e y would
most likely enter.
Barr admitted being "scared"
of Michigan, too. "On paper, I
don't see us winning the meet.
However , the boys are excited
about the meet, and aren't about
to walk away from the competi-
tion." The Fox made a similar
statement last y e a r before his
team thrashed the Wolverines.
Michigan Coaches Kimball and
Stager worked out tenative re-
suIts to the meet, and SMU end-
ed up on top by five points. Kim-
ball admitted, "We gave Southern
Methodist a lot of breaks, giving
them sweeps in the 50 and 100
yard freestyle, and letting them

weaknesses in the sprints and re-
lays will have to be offset, and
most likely will be made up in the
diving and distance events. Back-
stroke may turn up as another
weak spot for Michigan, if cap-

While Barr complimented the
progress of his own divers Scott
Pyle a n d Cal Loock, he called
Michigan's "among the best in the
nation." Michigan's Diving Coach
Dick Kimball admitted, "We don't
have to sweep both boards to win
the meet, but if we don't I'll be
awful mad.
Southern Methodist will be
hampered in the distance events
because freshman ace Jim Rubot-
tom was in a car accident and, ac-
cording to Coach Barr, "has only -
been in the water for five days, al- -
though he's swimming alright. I.-
might have to put one of my good
freestylers in the distance events."
But Michigan Coach Gus Stager
feels that "If Barr tries to protect ,
himself in all events he'll spread .. ...
himself too thin, and Michigan ..
can pick up points."
The points earned in the breast-
stroke and butterfly events will be

Lacrosse club
eXhlib1t10ii toi
The Michigan Lacrosse club an-
nounced preparations for the 1970
season yesterday noting a spring
break exhibition tour as a feature
on their schedule.
Head Coach "S k i p" Flanagan
expressed optimism in the upcom-
ing season. "By including the tour,
Michigan Lacrosse should really
explode this year." For Michigan
this is the first time such a tour
has been devised a n d it should
help the squad's chances in the
upcoming season considerably.
The trip will include two games

in the other.

pride in the consistency of per-
formance that enabled him to
emerge with the title.
Again last week, in a triang-
ular meet in Kalamazoo, Mc-
Curdy came through with his
best e v e r showing by scoring
53.45 and winning the all-
around as Jensen missed a sup-
erb score in the last event, when
he fell off the high bar. Rick,
who feels he is still improving,
fully expects to top that score
before the season's end.
ALREADY excited about the
possibility of the team repre-
, senting the conference in the
national meet in Philadelphia,
Rick knows from experience
what such expectations can lead
to. "We were really down when
the whole team didn't get to
Seattle last season," he says.
"It took away from our enjoy-
s ment of the trip."
But he doesn't really think
he has to worry about making
y the trip this time, as he feels
that this year's team is "much
better" than lastk year's while
the competition in the Big Ten
is not as strong. Also, Rick con-
siders this team the closest he
has ever been on, and feels that
this, coupled with the fantastic
depth it possesses, should make
them hard to beat.
McCurdy's start in gymnastics
came about when a Canadian
family moved in to his New
Jersey home town and got the
sport started there. Gymnastics
caught on throughout the Gar-
den State and Rick, who began
working out in the eighth grade,
captured the state all-around
title in his senior year. He has
a younger brother who is cur-
rently competing in high school,
but doesn't expect that he will
want to go to the same school
as Rick.
A physical education major,
he hopes to coach after gradu-
ation, still a year and a half
away. He would like, however, to
stay in top condition for a cOu-
pie of years, which can be hard

a school as large as Michigan
without something which he
could be part of.
McCurdy attributes much of
the aforementioned closeness of
the team to the personalities of
the performers as well as that
of coach Newt Loken. "Every-

much he needs to show is .de-
batable. After all, when you're
