VCoaches To Be Rivals i

Swimmers Go

for AAU Title

Seven members of Michigan's
NCAA swimming champions seek
individual honors today in the
three-day National AAU meet in
New Haven, Conn.
Those making the trip are:
Frank Legacki and Dave Heizer,
freestylers; Dick Nelson and Ron
Clark, breaststrokers; Ron Jaco,
Pete Cox and freshman Paul At--
tar, divers.
They will be up against the
very best competition in the coun-
try including the top collegians,
fresh from last week's NCAA
championships. Also competing
will be the Indiana swimmers who
weren't eligible to compete in the
NCAA's, and a flock of high school
stars who might be capable of
stealing all the thunder.
New Events
The AAU program includes four
events not normally swum in the
NCAA-the 220-yd. breaststroke,

backstroke and butterfly, and the
400-yd. individual medley. In ad-
dition, there will be no 50-yd.
freestyle or 200-yd. breaststroke,
backstroke or butterfly.t
Clark, Nelson and Legacki are'
either favorites or solid conten-
ders for the title. .
Clark, who has been breaking
records right and left the pastI
few weeks, may have his hands;
full with Chet Jastremski of In-
diana in the 220-yd. breaststroke.1
Swimming with no competition in
a special record attempt last
month, Clark sped to a 2:31.1
clocking and an American record.

Nelson will be up against the
same swimmers he beat Saturday
for the NCAA 100-yd. breaststroke
crown, plus Jastremski. A win
would give the personable Grand
Rapids sophomore a clean sweep
of Big Ten, NCAA and AAU titles.
Michigan's third solid title con-
tender is Legacki. Along with Steve
Jackman, Minnesota, Ray Pado-
van, Southern Illinois, Bruce Hun-
ter, Harvard and Dave Lyons, New
Trier (Ill) high school, he will
take dead aim at Jeff Farrell's
:48.2 American record for the
100-yd. freestyle.

Legacki also may try his hand
at the 100-yd. butterfly which he
couldn't enter at either the Big
Ten or NCAA meet because it
directly preceded the 100-yd. free-
style. He will have to beat out
Indiana's Mike- Troy and Fred
Schmidt of New Trier. All three
are capable of going under :53.0.
The closest race of the meet
could be the 100-yd. backstroke.
Chuck Bittick of Southern Cal, the
NCAA champ and new American
record holder, will have to fight
off Indiana captain Frank Mc-
Kinney and New Trier flash
Roger Goettsche.

Is your future up in the air?

As the communications needs of our nation
become steadily greater and more complex,
the Bell Telephone System is'continuing its
pioneer work in microwave by "taking to the
air" more and more to get the word across.
To this end, Western Electric-the manu-
facturing arm of the Bell System-has the
monumental task of producing a large part of
the microwave transmission equipment that
knits our country together by shrinking thou-
sands of miles into mere seconds.
In spite of its great technological strides,
the science of radio relay is a rapidly-changing
one. And new break-thronghs and advances
are common occurrences. A case in point:.our
Bell System "TH" Microwave Radio Relay.
This newest development in long-distance
telephone transmission will eventually triple
the nresent messacre-carrvingrcanacity of exist-

it takes top-caliber people to help us broaden
our horizons into such exciting new areas as
communication by satellites!
And microwave is only part of Western
Electric's opportunity story. We have-right
now-hundreds of challenging and rewarding
positions in virtually all areas of telephony,
as well as in development and building of
defense communications and missile guidance
systems for the Government.
So, if your future is "up in the air," you owe
it to your career to see "what's up" for you at
Western Electric.

Opportunities exist for electrical, mechanical, indus-
trial, civil and chemical engineers, as well as physical
science, liberal arts, and business majors. For more
