As a senior at Palo Alto (Cali-
fornia) High School, Mike Allen
surprised quite a few people by
capturing the eCntral Coast Sec-
tion championship in the 200-yard
freestyle with a time of 1:45.
His best time previously had been
As a sophomore at the Univer-
sity of Michigan, Allen did it
again. Only this time, it was in
the 200-yard butterfly for the
Big Ten championship March 1st.
Before this meet, his best time of
the season had been 1:58.9-Al-
len won the event with a 1:53.49.
He not only surprised the spec-
tators in Bloomington, but his
teammates (particularly Lee Bis-
bee and Tom Arusoo, Michigan's
powerful butterfly duet who fin-
ished second and third), his coach
(Gus Stager, who felt he might
be able to capture third at best),
and especially himself.
"It was a surprise," Allen com-
4mented, smiling. "I never swam
butterfly in practice - the last
time I did was my freshman year."
Coach Stager was pleasantly as-
tounded with the 6'4" sophomore.
"We had no idea at all that Mike
would win. I didn't think he was
good enough to beat our two but-
terfliers (Bisbee and Arusoo).
"But he swam a tremendous race,"
Stager continued. "I'm very pleas-
ed with Mike's performance."
There are a lot of factors in-
volved in such an improvement-
a drop of five seconds is quite
significant in swimming times.
The fact that Allen was shaved
down (hair removed from t h e
arms and legs to reduce friction
in the water) can lower a time
as much as one second.
Allen also observed that "every-
one else drops in time too. That's
the way you plan it-to take a big
drop at the big meets: You're justI
too tired during the regular sea-
Certainly practice and atti-
tude have a lot to do with an
athlete's improvement. Allen
swims at least two-and-a-half to
three hours every day. "When the
stroke feels good," he said, "it's
"Trouble is, it takes so damn
long. I didn't work out at all last

One year ago the National In-
vitation, Tournament decided to
increase its field from fourteen to'
sixteen teams because of the abun-
dance of top-flight teams across
the nation. In this year of fewer
top-flight collegiate fives, the NIT
decided to cut four teams from
its field in an attempt to stage
nothing less than a first rate tour-
Unfortunately for the tourna-
ment directors, their attempt
seems to have fallen short of the
goal as this year's field will further
illustrate the decline of the NIT

the early fifties. Then it was open
