John Dumont, Michigan swim-
ming captain, will close out his
college career this weekend in
Raleigh, N. C. at the NCAA Swim-
ming Meet.
Characteristically, Dumont is
placing much of the task of win-
ning the national championship on
his own shoulders. "We've got a
real good chance to win the na-
tionals," Dumont said, "and if
we do win, it will be in events like
diving and distance freestyle.'
As a distance freestyler ever
since his high school days in New
Jersey when he found he "didn't
have enough natural speed" to be
a sprinter, Dumont has continually
come through in the important
Butts Files
$l0 Million
Libel Suit
ATLANTA (A)-- Wallace Butts,
former Georgia athletic director,
field a $10 million lebel suit yes-
terday against the Saturday Eve-
ning Post which has charged him
with rigging a college fo otball
The damage suit was filed in
Federal Court as state and federal
investigators questioned George
Burnett, Atlanta insurance sales-
man who was quoted in the Post
as having overheard a telephone
conversation between Butts and
Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant of
In the complaint, which seeks
$5 million in punitive damages,
Butts says the Post charged him
with "rigging and fixing the Ala-
bama-Georgia football game with
coach Bryant as a gambling de-
vice in order to restore his finan-
cial resources."
Butts charges the Post has ruin-
ed his coaching career of 35 years
by "willfully, maliciously and
falsely" publishing a libelous
article. He resigned as Georgia
athletic director in February.
The Post managing editor, Davis
Thomas, said in a statement
issued in New York that the mag-

meets. For the past three seasons
he has placed in the Big Ten
Better Balance
"Michigan has a better balanc-
ed team than any other in the
country," Dumont explained. "By
balance I mean we have a strong
swimmer in every event. Other
teams like Minnesota and Yale
depend too much on their sprint-
ers. If they don't do well the whole
team is gunned down.
"Michigan also has depth which
helped us in the Big Ten Meet
where there were 12 places. In the
NCAA Meet where there are only
six places our depth will not help
us as much. However we do have
more swimmers than other teams
that are very close to the top six.
someone who wasn't expected to
A spectacular performance by
place in the finals could lift the
whole team."
Dumont's most distinguishing
feature as a swimmer besides his
many successes is an exteremely
unorthodox stroke. For those who
have not seen Dumont swim it is
hard to describe.
Body Rocks
It is sufficient to say that his
whole body rocks back and forth
like a small boat in a turbulent
inlet and his right arm knifes
through the water like he is trying
to punch an invisible menace deep
below the surface of the water.
All the time he breathes by jerk-
ing his head in and out of the
water. Anyone who ever : aes him
swim can tell from just watching
him that he is going all out to do
the best he can.
"Matt Mann tried to change my
stroke when I used to go to his
camp in the summer and Gus
Stager tried to change it when I
came to Michigan," Dumont com-
mented, "Warren Uhler and I have
somewhat the same stroke. We
both decided we swim more ef-
ficiently this way. For distance
men it isn't so important to have
a perfect form as it is to have
efficiency and endurance."
Does Better
Looking over Dumont's record it
seems as if he does better the
longer the event he has to swim.
He usually places higher in the
1500-meter or 1650-yd. races than
in the 440- or 500-yd. events.
"I. don't think that I'm any
better at the longer distance
events," he said. "It's just that
there is less competition in the
1650, for example, than in the
"In the 500 there are swimmers
swimming it at championship
meets whose specialties are other
events and who swim the 500 as a
third event.
"Bill Darnton, Tom Dudley
and I swam at Matt Mann's camp
and I used to get beat at the half
mile races. So I think that there
is a limit to the length of the
races that I'm good at."
'Elder Statesmen'
As a captain of a Michigan
sports team Dumont is one of the
"elder statesmen" of the Michigan
sports scene. This past year he has
served as treasurer of the M Club.
The M Club was rather inactive
for several years until Ray Sen-
kowski took over the presidency
last fall and with his officers tried
to instill life into the dying club.
Dumont reports that, "I think
we've accomplished quite a bit this
year. We now have regular meet-
ings and we've tried to interest all
the letterwinners on campus with
our program.
"We've initiated several projects
like writing to athletes in our
home towns trying to get them to
come to Michigan. We also have

a policy of trying to help the
coaches in any way we can."
Took Trouble
Dumont also took the trouble to
inform himself about the problems'
and possibilities of financing the
proposed multi-purpose building
this year in an attempt to see if
there was anything he or other
athletes could do to help. He talk-
ed with members of the Plant Ex-
pansion Committee of the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics and other members of the
board in this attempt.
Thus it seems clear that al-
though Dumont ends his swimming
career this weekend he will not
end his contributions to Michigan
sports. Dumont will always be one
of those individuals who will act
to promote Michigan sports even
when he is no longer able to do
so on the fields of athletic combat.

during the Pan-American Games,
the top two finishers in the na-

squad. However, in the 100-yd.

in the top six will get to make
the trip.
This is because the first and

These three swimmers and Cyn-

be among the nation's best. The
medley relay is composed of Miss
Thrasher, Miss Swart, Donna
Conklin and Anne Porter.
Besides the 100-yd. freestyle,
Miss Thrasher, Miss Swart and
Miss Wirth are entering two other
events. Miss Thrasher will try the
100- ane, 200-yd, butterfly events.
According to Coach Dawson,Miss
Thrasher is better at 200 yards
