Swim Team Battles Gophers in Dual Meet
By BOB McFARLAND
The Wolverine tankers launch
their powerful flotilla again today
in an attempt to sink their Min-
nesota foes and rack up their
fourth dual meet victory of 1966
without a defeat.
Michigan will be facing a young
Gopher squad in Minneapolis, de-
void of such stars as Wally Rich-
ardson and Mike Stauffer who
led Minnesota last year. As their
head coach Bob Mowerson terms
it, "I'm afraid we'll be down a bit
Only eight lettermen returned
this season for the Gophers. Buoy-
ing up the inexperienced Min-
nesota swimmers are co-captains
Jim Dragon and Don Spencer,
along with diver John Romstad.
Not Musch Sweat
"Minnesota shouldn't be too
tough," Michigan coach Gus Sta-
ger said yesterday. "We're taking
a small group, only eleven swim-
mers and two divers, but every-
one we're bringing along is a good
swimmer," Stager noted.
"Everyone will have to swim in
two or three events, and put out
a good effort. But we're expecting
to win," Stager continued.
Stager reported that Spencer's
best time this season in the 200-
yard butterfly, his specialty, is
"around 2:03 or 2:04." Michigan's
Carl Robie has turned in a 1:55.6
for the distance this season in
comparison. However, Robie didn't
make the trip today, and it's up
to Tom O'Malley and John Salassa
to take care of Spencer.
Regarding Romstad, who placed
10th nationally last season in div-
ing, Stager's opinion was that
"we ought to be able to handle
him." Bruce Brown and junior
Bob Walmsley will be representing
the Wolverines in that depart-

It was almost a year ago today
that the two teams met in Branch

it was far and away the most
exciting match-up, the wildest
thriller, in all of Michigan's his-

Olympian Bill Farley, who will

Rich Walls in the 500.
The Wolverines' 400-yard free-

"At times, you would have good

game with "erratic" Illinois-a team which took more than five
minutes to score a single point against Army- wasn't. Indiana,

latest round in the battle of the
sexes was fought yesterday when
the male managing editor of the
Yale Daily News trounced his fe-
male counterpart on the Harvard
Crimson in a game of jacks.
John Rothchild, outfitted in a
tuxedo for the occasion, hardly
worked up a sweat as he went all
the way from onesies to tensies
in only five tries.

more difficult "eggs in a basket"
method while Miss Linda McVeigh

The Radcliffe junior became

her several times, presumably for
the benefit of cameramen.
