Swimmers Finish Strong To Take Third in NCAAs


It was a night of mixed bless-'
ings for Michigan. Senior breast-
stroker Dick Nelson was partially
thwarted in his bid for a third
consecutive NCAA title at 100 yds,
winding up in a dead heat for first
with Princeton's Gardiner Green,
last year's runner-up.
The two finished in a relatively
slow 1:02.2, although North Caro-
lina State's new pool was choppy
enough to, be a handicap to the
The Wolverines picked up un-
expected points when juniors Roy

Burry and Tom Dudley pulled in
second and third, respectively, in
the 1650-yd. freestyle.
Burry Sets Record
The winner was Southern Cal
sophomore Jon Konrads in a meet
and NCAA record of 17:24.0.
Burry's time of 17:41.0 broke his
own varsity record by two seconds,
even though he did not qualify for
the final heat off his season's beet.
He won his afternoon heat in
thumping style to top everyone but
In the three-meter dive, Royal

Oak sophomore Ed Boothman
came up with the best performance
of his career, finishing second to
two-time champion Lou Vitucci of
Ohio State.
Pete Cox, a Michigan senior who
had been runner-up to Vitucci in
the one-meter dive Thursday
night, finished fifth this time.
Bartsch Only Fourth
Disappointment came to Eddie
Bartsch, the Michigan sophomore
who had already won the 200-yd.
backstroke. Last night he finished,
only fourth in a tough field head-

ed by Southern Cal sophomore
Bob Bennett, the Olympic silver
medalist in this event.
. Bennett touched out Michigan
State's Jeff Mattson, the Big Ten
champion, :53.8 to :54.0. Bartsch
timed :54.4, nearly a second off
the time that earned him a spot
on the U.S. Pan-American team
last week, and he lost a judges'
decision for third to Jed Graef, of
Princeton, who also timed :54.4.
The Wolverines failed to qualify
a man for the finals of the other
three events, but all were record-
Jackman Loses 100
Southern Cal's Per Ola Lind-
berg, a 23-year-old junior from
Sweden, pulled off the meet's big-
gest upset by taking the 100-yd..
freestyle in a meet record :47.1.
The three favorites, Steve Jack-
man of Minnesota and Steve Clark
and Mike Austin of Yale, hooked
up in a strategic duel and forgot
about Lindberg. Austin finished
second in :47.3, while Jackman,
two-time champion and holder of
the pending mark of :46.5, finished
third in :47.4.
Walt Richardson redeemed him-
self from his disqualification in
Friday night's 200-yd. butterfly
by taking the 100-yd event last
night in a meet record :51.6, beat-
ing defending champion Dick Mc-
Donough of Villanova and Mike
Mealiffe of Southern Cal, who
tied for second in :52.5.
Wolverines who just missed
qualifying for the finals were Jeff
Longstreth, eighth in the fly in
:53.3; Geza Bodolay, seventh in
the breaststroke in 1:03.7; and
Jim Riutta, Lanny Reppert, Steve
Thrasher and Frank Berry,
seventh in the relay in 3:18.1

in a third-place finish for Michigan at the 200-yd. distance. Nelson successfully defended his crown
which he had won in last year's championship meet.

coach "still has lots of room to

All depends on why he uses it.
Most men simply think Menthol-iced Skin Bracer is the best
after-shave lotion around. Because it cools rather than burns.
Because it helps heal shaving nicks and scrapes. Because it
helps prevent blemishes.
So who can blame them if Bracer's crisp, long-lasting aroma
just happens to affect women so remarkably?
Of course, some men may use Mennen Skin Bracer because
of this effect.
How intelligent!M

swimming record last night - a
2:15 in the 200-yard individual
It was her fifth record-breaking
performance of the women's Sen-
ior National AAU indoor cham-
Donna, a Santa Clara, Calif.,
high school sophomore, said she
was "going for at least a 2:15
and would have liked to have done
better." She had held the old meet
and American records for the 200-
yard medley, the latter the faster
at 2:18.3 and both set last year.
Her coach, George Haines, said
"She's in the best shape of her
career, but by no means at a peak.
She still has a lot of room to im-
prove in the years ahead."
Donna has been in five events
during the four-day meet which
ends Sunday and has had a part
in five American records.
Her performances have helped
the Santa Clara Swim Club to
make a runaway of its team de-
fense. Santa Clara has 91% points
to 27 for the Cleveland Swim
Club. Los Angeles A.C. is third
with 25, followed by Northern Vir-
ginia with 19%.
Another defending champion,
Robyn Johnson of Northern Vir-
ginia Aquatic Club, was upset in
the 500-yard freestyle by Sharon
Finneran, 17-year-old junior at
-Marshall High School in Los An-
Sharon, who now holds five Na-
tional titles, set a meet and Amer-
ican record with her 5:23.4 clock-
ing, beating by 3.8 seconds the
American record set by Miss John-
son last year.
