THE MICHIGAN UATIX
1118'! 1 a t' aa 'V(1a1. 1art a i.
By DOUG HELLER
It is now spring vacation in East
Lansing. Even the dorms are lock-
ed. The Michigan State campus is
And thrown into the vacuum is
the NCAA swimming champion-
ships, the big one. Needless to say,
plenty of tickets are available for
the finals, which will take place
tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday
nights at 8 p.m.
Why the plug? Because it seems
obvious that if anybody is going
to fill the Spartan pool, it's going
to be Michigan students.
The alternative is ridiculous.
Picture the likes of Don Schol-
lander of Yale, Greg Buckingham
of Stanford, Mike Burton of
UCLA, Ken Sitzberger of Indiana,
and Carl Robie of Michigan per-
forming in an extravaganza for
the benefit of a scattering of news-
And the possibility of seeing a
meet of this prestige in this area
again will be unlikely for a long
In addition, this could be the
last big effort for a number of
1964 Olympians. This is because
this year's seniors, like Robie,
Dilley, and Sitzberger, all Tokyo
alumni, would risk an Uncle Sam
sponsored trip to Vietnam if they
take time off from graduate school
or a job to train for Mexico iCty.
A fact like this tends to curb in-
This will not affect those, like
Schollander (a winner of four gold
medals in 1964), who will still be
undergraduates and in condition
when 1968 rolls around.
The meet itself looks like a
murderously close one. Swimming
World calls it a tossup among
Indiana, S o u t h e r n, California,
Stanford, Yale, and Michigan.
Wolverine coach Gus Stager
rates Indiana a 70 per cent chance
to take all the marbles on the
strength of its divers, mainly Sitz-
berger and Win Young. According
to Stager the Big Ten has about
the six best diving coaches around,
and none of those schools could
top the Hoosier duo.
He gives Michigan a 10 per cent
chance of winning, because the
Wolverines actually swam best att
the Big Ten meets, and were only
overcome by Indiana's diving.
This leaves the defending
champions from USC, the Stan-
ford Indians (who tied the Tro-
jans in a dual meet this year) and<
Schollander's troupe from New
Haven, Conn., a total 20 per centl
chance to win.4
A blindfold test
From the West coast, Wolverine
Captain Robie will face competi-
tion that will make any challenge
he had previously this year look
like a nice day at the beach. Stan-
ford's Buckingham, who upset
Burton in their dual meet, sur-
passed Robei's 4:43.08 NCAA 500
yard freestyle record set this year,
with a 4:42.3 of his own. And then
there is a chance that Schollan-
der will swim the 500.
In the 400 yard medley relay,
Michigan's best time is only .9 of
a second behind USC. But Indiana,
Stanford, Princeton and UCLA all
are in between. The 400 freestyle
relay finds MSU on top with a
3:08.7, with Michigan 1.2 seconds
behind and USC sandwiched in the
At this point, Robei's 200 yard
butterfly, with a time of 1:53.6,
alomst one and a half seconds
ahead of the nearest competitor,1
and Paul Scheerer's 2:11.5 breast-
stroke, are the events that seem
most likely to hold up for Mich-
igan. Scheerer is also trying to
retain his 100 yard breaststroke!
Stager's biggest problem in thisj
meet, something that does not oc-
cur in others, is that he is very
unfamaliar with the competition.
He admits this and says "we real-
Student tickets are now avail-
able for the basketball banquet
honoring Michigan's 1966-67,
cagers. The banquet will be held
next Tuesday night in the An-
derson Room of the Michigan
Union at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are
available to students for $5;
Alumni tickets are $10. For in-
formation, call Jim Podell at
ly won't know anything until we
get up there."
He hopes that the events the
Wolverines are weak in will be
won by teams that are otherwise
non-entities. Thus, State's Ken
Walsh with the best time in the
nation in the 100-yard freestyle
and Pete Wather of North Caro-
lina, who is best at the 50-yard
freestyle, could help out Michigan
by winning should their schools
But it seems that almost all the
contending schools are ahead of
Michigan in the 200-yard individ-
ual medley and 200-yard freestyle.
The scoring system will also
affect strategy. A winning relay
team will receive 32 points com-
pared with eight in a dual meet,
and the winner of an individual
event will get 16 points instead
of five as in a dual meet. Thus,
the relays will be more important
than they ordinarily are, and
teams -von't be able to spread
themselves thin in them.
The NCAA had a choice of about
500 schools to stage the champion-
ship in. The question is, why did
they have to pick an empty one?
If anybody ever says you can't
pick Budweiser with your eyes
shut, you can call his bluff.
First, stick your nose close
to the foam of each glass of
beer and take a sniff. Notice a difference?
The one with the clean, fresh aroma is
Now taste. This gets a bit tricky. But
the one beer that tastes like beer without
any one flavor jumping out at you (like
hops, or an extra sweetness, or some-
times a sour or sharp taste) is Budweiser.
That's because Budweiser is blended-
by our Beechwood Ageing. We want you
to taste the beer, not the recipe.
If anybody pulls a beer-tasting test
on you, now you know how to win. Just
follow your nose.

And this assumes UCLA, Prince-
ton, and North Carolina are just'
coming along for the ride.
And yet the team championships
might not be as exciting as cer-
tain individual matchups. First
from the Big Ten, Russ Kingery,
the Michigan backstroker who has
had about as much success at
catching State's Gary Dilley as
Snoopy did the Red Baron the
first six months he was at it,
makes the big attempt at the
climax of his career. Kingery, who
was ill during the Big Ten meet
and had to settle for second place
once again, has said he could take

in the first game of the Western
Division semifinal playoffs of the
