NOW SWIMMING IN JAPAN:

Bartsch, Farley, Robie Score in AA U

end the Americans beat the listed
world record in three events andr
tied another.
By the one-sided defeats thatc
the Americans handed the Japan-
ese, the American swimmers es-
tablished themselves as the teami
to beat in the Olympics to. be held
next summer in Toyko. The 12-
month period between now and thei
start of the Olympic swimmingl
events should be an exciting one
as swimmers first point for the
Olympic trials and then the Games1
themselves.
Despite the topflight competi-
tion at the nationals, only two
American and world records were
set in the meet. However, it was
just as tough as ever to break
into the finals as such former
greats as Indiana's Chet Jastrem-
ski learned. Jastremski, the world;
record-holder at three breaststroke
distances, didn't qualify for the
finals at 100 yards and didn't
even enter the 200-meter event.
Bartsch, a Pan-American Games
golld medal winner, was second to
world record-holder Tom Stock of
ndiana in the 200-meter back-
troke. He finished fourth in the
100-meter race.

In Summer
Action on the Michigan sports
scene ground to an abrupt halt
as classes ended at the end of the
spring semester last May.
There were a few brief flare-
ups, however. First, Fritz Fisher
and Joe Jones, both veterans of
Michigan's 1962 NCAA world
championship baseball team, sign-
ed major league contracts just
after finishing the 1963 season.
The Detroit Tigers gave a $30,-
000 bonus to Fisher to report to
their Knoxville farm team. Fisher
had compiled a fine 9-1 pitching
record last season with a 1.94
earned-run average.
Jones, Michigan's second-base-
man, got a "nominal" bonus from
the Chicago White Sox and re-
ported to a lower class farm team.
These were the subsequent high-
lights in Michigan sports over the
summer:
JULY 23-Marty Sinn, a Michi-
gan coed last year and world's
professional women's swimming
champion, finished sixth in the
annual 26-mile swim around Ab-
secon Island, New Jersey.
She lost her swim suit early in
the race and attracted quite a fol-
lowing near the finish.
JULY 26 -- Harry Fauquier,
Michigan's tennis captain, com-
peted on Canada's Davis Cup team,
which lost in the regional elimina-
tion to Mexico. 4
Fauquier lost to Antonio Pala-
AUGUST 11-Ray Senkowski,
the Wolverines' first singles player
last year, made the finals of the
Eastern Canada Tennis Champion-
ship -before losing out to Ham
Richardson, 6-0, 6-1, 6-3.
En route to the finals, Sen-
kowski knocked off Whitney Reed,
formerly the top-ranked American
player.
