Bill Farley Swims Record Distances for Michigan

By HOWARD KOHN
When someone mentions Farley
in Michigan bull sessions, they're
talking about swimming - swim-
ming faster and farther than most
people walk.
That is if it's Farley, as in Wil-
liam Farley, Olympic freestyler,
Big Ten champion and Michigan
swim standout.
Bill is the distance man for the
Wolverines. As a sophomore he
cracked four team and pool rec-
ords-in the 200-, 500-, 1000- and
1650-yard freestyles - and as a
junior he added a couple more as
a member of the record smashing
400- and 800-yard freestyle relay
teams.
In addition, he captured the
500 and 1650 in the Big Ten
championships as a soph, and set
conference records en route to out-
right titles in the 200 and 500,
along with a tie (to the 100th of
a second) with teammate Carl
Robie in the 1650 last year in the
Big Ten. He also swam on Mich-

igan's 800-yard relayt

and enjoys punishing himself. In;
my opinion, there are only two
others in the Big Ten this season
who can compare to him."
(One of them is Robie, who has
eclipsed two of Farley's varsity
records.)
Physical Fitness
Farley's daily practice routine#
consists of several grueling sets of
200 and 500 yards at a time. "I
swim by myself in a roped-off
lane, because I'm usually swim-
ming twice as much as the rest of
the team," Bill comments.

freestyle. "Just going to the Olym-
pics, however, is a great feeling.
I think anyone who is closely con-
nected to athletics will agree that
being an Olympian is the epitome
of an athlete's career."
Yanks in Trouble?
Bill had this to say about the
perennial domination of American
swimmers on the world scene.
"European and Russian swimmers
are improving all the time. And
their influence, plus the threat of
Australia, will soon cut into
America's one - two - three sweeps
of 1964."
Along with the prestige of com-
peting in the Olympics, Bill has
also received the pleasure of
traveling to Brazil in 1963 to par-
ticipate in the Pan-American
Games. "That was my first trip
out of the country and it was more
fun . . . there wasn't as much
pressure or as much red tape."
Saari went along, too. Both he
and Parley broke the 17-minute
barrier in the 1500-meter to
qualify.
You've Got Problems?
However, not all of Farley's
trans-continental trips have such
a dignified aura as these. For in-
stance, there is his flight home
to California last spring.
Somewhere during the course of
the year, Bill had acquired a young
puppy, which he (innocently
enough) planned to take with him.
He duly called the airline office
on the proper procedure, only to

learn that his only recourse was
to pay some outrageous price to
store his dog in a corner of the
baggage compartment.
But Bill is filled with determin-
ation and coach Stager is used to
solving problems, so on the day of
departure, Bill was seen boarding
the plane with a rather bulky bag
which upon close inspection moved
slightly in an odd fashion.
What Goes There?
Once on the plane, Bill breathed
a sigh of relief, smiled at the
stewardess, set the bag down on
the floor and horrifiedly watched
the leather satchel bounce whin-
ingly to the front of the plane.
By the time the stewardess had
explained to the captain, and the
captain, very understandingly, had
consented to the presence of the
puppy in the passenger section,
Bill's complexion had progressed
I from shocked white to embarassed
scarlet.
It's almost too bad that no one
snapped a color picture of the
scene, considering Farley's main
concern, outside of swimming, is
photography.
"I've been interested in the
'picture business' for the last two
years, but I haven't had any real
opportunity to see how well I can
do. I hope to enroll in a school for
photographers after graduation
next spring."
Which might make Bill Farley
the first underwater freelance
photographer in NCAA history. .

"I'm very grateful to Michigan
coach Gus Stager for helping me
in my first years here. I had an
excellent coach back home, but
Gus taught me all the helpful
techniques a winning swimmer
needs. He was the first to work
on my stroke and he's still help-

Stager, on the other hand, com-

The daily workouts and a little
extra incentive to beat longtime
rival Roy Saari, holder of four
NCAA records, combined to put
Farley on the 1964 Olympic team
for the United States. Bill, who
has been swimming against Saari
since high school, topped him con-
sistently in the summer trials to
earn a berth on the team.

Danpier 'scored 42 points to lead
red hot Kentucky, the nation's
second-ranked team, to a 105-90
Southeastern Conference basket-
ball conference victory over third-
ranked Vanderbilt last night.
Dampier got 20 points in the
first half-all of them field goals
-and added 22 with the help of
six four shots. Most of his field
goals were long jump shots.
Teammate Pat Riley threw in
28 points, scoring mostly from
the corner.
The victory left Kentucky with
a 16-0 record over-all and 6-0 in
the SEC. The win virtually as-
sures the Wildcats the SEC title
unless they run into unexpected
disaster on the road this month.
Kentucky moved ahead by 23
points, 79-56, midway in the sec-
ond half to put the game on ice.
Vandy's 6-9 center Clyde Lee
scored 26 points to lead the Com-
modores, but Kentucky's Cliff
Burger, who stands 6-8, did an
effective job of preventing Lee
from driving from the head of the
circle for inside shots.

The victory gave the Pistons a

first time since they came to De-
