Big Ten champion Wolverines,
was forced to sit out most of the
regular collegiate season with
mononucleosis and is making a
comeback attempt. His time of
2:16.8 indicates that he may be
ready for tonight's final.
Gillanders, who holds the dis-
tinction of edging Troy in last
summer's Pan American Games,
finished with a 2:17.1 time.
The key to whether either Tash-
nick or Gillanders can take the
second qualifying spot behind Troy
is the remarkable Mr. Larson, who
is also one of the nation's finest
butterfly performers.
Larson is rated number two
behind Troy, but since he has
already clinched an Olympic berth
with his freestyle victory, he may
not be pressing quite so hard in
tonight's butterfly final.
Tonight's events will see eight
more Olympic qualifiers named.

Lan 's Joke
Odd Swap
NEW YORK (P)-What started
out as a joke two weeks ago ended:
yesterday in one of baseball's
strangest deals, the straight swap
of Detroit manager Jimmie Dykes
for Cleveland manager Joe Gor-
Gordon, fired and then re-hired
by general manager Frank Lane
last year, will take over the Tigers
when they return home from a
disastrous road trip tomorrow
Dykes, who had been expecting
the axe any minute, will join Lane
and the Indians in Cleveland the
same night. Both clubs wound up
road tours last night-Cleveland!
at Washington and Detroit at
New York.
Trade-master Lane and presi-
dent Bill Dewitt of the Tigers
made the deal after mentioning it
as a joke during a conversation
two weeks ago.
Dykes had been Detroit man-
ager since May 3, 1959. Gordon
replaced Bobby Bragan as Cleve-
land manager June 27, 1958.
The fact that Gordon and
Dykes were ousted comes as no
great surprise. The fourth-place
Indians, rated a pennant con-
tender on the form sheet, have
lost 18 of their last 25. The Tigers,
picked for the first division, are
struggling in sixth place after
dropping 12 of their last 15.
The fact that they exchanged
jobs is the remarkable twist that
baseball had never before seen.
The deal even included the con-
tracts of the two managers. Gor-
don, who signed a two-year pact
with Cleveland during the past
winter, will continue with the In-
dians through the 1961 season.
Dykes' one-year contract with the
Tigers, in turn, was taken over by
the Indians.

The Yankees got four of their
five hits off reliever Dave Regan.
One of the hits was a home run
by catcher Johnny Blanchard
following a single by Bob Cerv to
account for the Yankee runs.
Cash hit his homer, No. 10 of
the year for him, in the first in-
ning following one of three walks
coaxed by Eddie Yost. Cash also
had a run-scoring single, two
wvalks and was hit by a pitched
ball. Coot Veal and Lew Berberet
also reached base five times, Veal
on two singles and three walks
and Berberet with a single, double
and three walks.
The Tigers scored in the first,
third, fifth and seventh innings.
Their big explosion came in the
third when they rapped Coates
and Duke Maas for five hits and
four runs to take a 6-0 lead. Ber-
beret's runs-scoring double, and
Veal's single, scoring two, were
the key hits.
The victory was Aguirre's fourth

The council referred to a com-

Swimming Renaissance
Special to The Daily
LOS ANGELES-It is often said that out of defeat much good can
And out of the decisive and humiliating beating sustained by the,
1956 U.S. Olympic swim ttam at Melbourne, much good has indeed re-
sulted for American swimming.
U.S. swim fortunes were at their lowest ebb in history when the
weary band of Americans limped home from Australia in the waning1
days of 1956.
Pride wounded by this humiliating turn of events which saw the
United States men's team, which won eight of nine gold medals in
Helsinki, Finland in 1952, come home completely empty handed four
years later, swimming coaches, swimmers and officials set themselves
to the task of rebuilding the crumbled U.S. power.
Taking hold in scattered parts of the country, under young and
energetic new leaders, a Renaissance in American swimming slowly
gained momentum.
In Indianapolis under Dr. Jim Counsilman; in Ann Arbor under
Gus Stager; in Seattle under Ray Daughters; and especially in Los
Angeles under Pete Daland and Santa Clara under George Haines,
American swimmers in ever-increasing numbers began to assault
world marks once again,
New Era for America .. '
Yes, the U.S. has come a long way since those black December
days spent Down Under, but now it is 1960. The Olympics are less
than a month away and the Americans must prove to the world and
themselves that they are fit to recoup the glories of yesteryear.
American swimming and swimmers have improved 100 fold since
1956. A new era in American swimming has begun; and therein lies
the problem, it has just begun.
Certainly the 1960 U.S. team will be the strongest this nation has
ever sent to international competition. However, the Australians, who
have been the dominant force in world swimming since 1956, have not
stood still and in many instances have lowered their own world
records. They fear no threat from the U.S. in the distance events
where their supremacy is well acknowledged. The Japanese claim the
world's fastest breastrokers and are within hailing distance of the
Aussies in the distance events.
Despite the fantastic improvement made by American swimmers
since the last Olympiad, to expect a U.S. victory at Rome is grossly
optimistic. It is possible, in the abbreviated Olympic swim program,
for the Americans to win half of the Gold Medals and score an upset
victory, but to expect this as inevitable as some Americans seem to
is sheer folly.
The enthusiasm and dedication of the American team and its
coaches Gus Stager (men) and George Haines (women) will not be
surpassed. They will surprise many people at Rome. They have ability
and desire; they lack only one thing, more time.
. . . the Year of Hope

ROME (W)-The Kremlin and
its Italian followers embarked on
a campaign yesterday to squeeze
cold war propaganda out of the
Olympic games. The main targetsf
were the Italian government and
the Vatican.
Leading the campaign is the
Italian Communist newspaper,
L'Unita. It has been running al-
most daily attacks on some aspect
of the Olympic organization.
The paper even issued a threat
yesterday that the name of Benito
Mussolini might be forcibly re-
moved from an abelisk near the1
Olympic Stadium if the govern-1
ment authorities refused to do so..
On Sunday the paper claimed a
Vatican commission had been es-
pecially organizec to prepare
"tons of leaflets and pamphlets"
attacking Red China, Russiaand,
other Communist countries.
"There is grave danger of political
and diplomatic repercussions," it
Monday night Radio Moscow
took up the attack. It repeated
many of the paper's allegations.
Yesterday L'Unita complained
about the obelisk and also about
the words "Duce, Duce, Duce' in-
laid in a sidewalk not far from
the stadium.
"Another paper could induce
visiting tourists and athletes to'
take the initiative themselves and
clean away these words with their
own hands, without waiting for
the Italian government,",it
Many of the Communist attacks
have been ignored. Many have
brought denials.
Giulio Andreotti, Italian defense
minister and president of the
Olympic Organizing Committee,
said there was no foundation to
the reports that the Vatican was
disturbing 'the games.
Andreotti said everything was
being done to keep "nonsporting"
elements such as religious author-
ities, politicians and labor circles
out of the games.
Meanwhile, Msgr. Nicola Pav-
oni, head of a Vatican commission

coordinating religious assistance-
for Roman Catholic athletes, said
the Moscow and L'Unita reports
about anti-Communist activity by
the Vatican were "absolutely not
