THIRD STRAIGHT WIN:
Mermaids Conquer Toronto

500-yd. freestyle event there are
an extra five turns during which
the swimmer might slow down or
speed himself up. Although this
factor didn't prove too important
in the meet because of Michigan's 1
overwhelming strength, in a close
meet it could be the deciding fac-
tor.
Bad for Divers
A greater handicap associated1
with the pool is its diving board.
Al modern diving boards have a
fulcrum arrangement which en-
ables the diver to adjust the spring
of the board to his own taste. Wis-
consin doesn't.
Most pools are also extremely
deep at the diving platform, and
provide at least ten feet of water+
Wisconsin's pool is only seven feet
deep. For a diver who is used to
allowing himself to dive deep, thei
shallow water can result in an
injury. Or, simply by knowing that
the water isn't as deep as it should
be, he can be forced to change his
style and destroy his form.
Duck Your Head
And a diver needs head room,
room to maneuver in. At Wiscon-
sin, the divers are constantly in
danger of hitting the ceiling if
they spring too high. However.
even with all these handicaps, tie
Wolverine divers finished 1-2, al-
though with comparatively low
scores.
There were other slight discom-
forts for the team at the game.
The locker room in which they
dressed was a curtained-off area
among the women's lockers.
Strong Freshmen
Next year, when the new pool
is completed, most of these dis-
comforts will have disappeared.
However, new discomforts will
take their place. One of the sur-
prises Wisconsin showed Coach
Stager was its freshman team,
which numbers among its mem-
bers some of the fastest swim-
mers in the Big Ten
Unfortunately, Michigan need
not wait until next year for dis-
comfort. On Friday the Blue swim
against Indiana at Bloomington.
Indiana is generally recognized as
having the strongest swim team
of all time, and Coach Stager has
admitted that Michigan has only
an outside chance to upset them.
However, Stager preferred to
leave a few of his better swim-
mers in Ann Arbor to work out
and get ready for the rapidly ap-
proaching Indiana, Ohio State,
Michigan State, and Big Ten
meets. Also, Stager wanted some
of the younger swimmers to gain
experience under meet conditions
in order to aid their development
and to prepare them for the later
meets this year.
Among those left in Ann Arbor
were backstrokers Mike Reissing
and Ed Bartsch, breaststrokers
Dick Nelson and Geza Bodolay,
individual medleyist Lannie Rep-
pert, and divers Pete Cox and Ed
Boothman.

style relay team of Cynthia, Os-
good, Suzy Thrasher, Pam Swart,

terfly relay and that team also
was first. Swart, Wirth, Conklin,
and Margaret House won the 400-
