Unless something very strange

Indiana will swim away with an
unprecedented ninth straight Big

nze medalists Jim Henry an

Win Young will compete for In-
diana in the diving events. They
finished first and second in the
1-meter event last year and sec-
ond and third in the 3-meter. It
is expected that they will do at
least as well this year.
Jacks could prove to be a strong
threat in the butterfly events this
year. He was a member of the
winning 400-medley relaynteam
last year and wil swim in this
event again.
's Indiana will also dominate the
s long freestyle races. Fred South-
ward, the .defending champion in
t both the 500-yard freestyle and
r the 1650 freestyle is expected to
e repeat his victories.
is Michigan, however, should take
e its share of firsts in the meet.
k, Juan Bello, defending champion
y in both the 200-yard freestyle and
g the 100-yard butterfly, could re-
peat in both if he enters them.
d If Bello is entered, the Wol-
verines should do well in the but-
terfly. In last year's meet Lee
Bisbee took second in both the 100
and 200-yard races while Tom
Arusoo took third in the 200.
RELAYS ARE another strong
Michigan event. The Wolverines
took both the 400 and 800-yard
freestyle relays last year. Their
chances of repeating this year are
dependant on who is entered in
them. Individuals cannot compete
in more than five events, so if
some of Michigan's stronger swim-
mers are needed elsewhere the
relay teams could be hurt.
Competition for Indiana's South-
ward in the long races could come
from Wolverines Gary Kinkead
and Mike O'Connor. Kinkead is
also the defending champion in
the 400 individual medley.
Michigan State is expected to
repeat in the third spot this year.
State has a strong freestyler in
Don Rauch, who finished second
to Juan Bello in the 200. Mike
Kalmbach should also gain points
for the Spartans in the freestyle
as will Van Pelt Rockefeller in
the butterfly.
WISCONSIN IS picked to fin-
ish fourth again. The Badgers
have a strong freestyler in Fred
Hogan, who finished second in the
50 and 100 last year. Hogan can
n also swim the 200 and according
- to Stager is capable of beating
g. Bello in this event. Backstroker'
Dan Schwerin should also swim
t well for Wisconsin.
' Ohio State should repeat in
s fifth. The strongest Buckeye per-
d formances will come from back-
stroker John Hulme and freestyler
- Lonnie Harrison.
g Illinois and Purdue are not ex-
pected to do well as teams, but
each has a good swimmer. Illinois'
Kip Pope won both the 100 and
us 200-yard breaststroke races last
year and should retain his titles.
y Purdue's Dan Milne also won two
events, the 50 and 100 yard free-
e styles, and like Pope, should re-
m peat.
Though Stager doesn't expect
d Michigan to win this weekend, he
ie does expect the Wolverines to do
well. "Every man we enter will
score points and, with one pos-
n sible exception, we will score points
in all the events."

finally qualified for a baseball pension.
