If you like swimming, or
just like action, Matt Mann Pool
is where it's happening tonight.
The Midwest's most exciting
dual swim meet of 1974 takes
place tonight at 7:30 p.m. when
the Wolverines race the Stan-
ford Cardinals in Matt M a n n
Pool.
"We want a good crowd turn-
out," states Michigan C o a c h
Gus Stager. "I would say this
will be the most exciting d ui a 1
meet this year."
Michigan is ready and waiting
for the sixth-ranked Cardinals,
suffering no letdown after an un-
expected loss to Wisconsin last
Saturday. "We are taking Stan-
ford a little more seriously,"
states Stager. "We were tired
for Wisconsin; we aren't now.'
Stager refuses to predict the
outcome of tonight's contest.
"There are too many intangi-
bles," he claims. "They'll be tir-

ed and tense from traveling and
this is our home pool. B u t
they are very fast."
Led by world champion breast-
stroker John Hencken, Stanford
last week defeated a University
of Washington squad which fea-
tures Olympians Rick Demont
and Robin Backhaus. The Car-
dinals are favored to claim ano-
ther victim tonight.
Stager admits Stanford o u t-
classes Michigan in the sprints
and relays, "But after that," he

quickly adds, "every event wj'
be great head-to-head competi-
tion."
Michigan's Tom Szuba against
John Hencken in the 200-yhard
individual medley and Terry Su.-
ton in the 200-yard butterfly
should be close and exciting rac-
es.
Senior Stuart Isaac says he will
give Hencken a good race in the
200-yard breaststroke, and fresh-
man Gordon Downie will battle
Bruce Goodwin, Craig VanZandt
and Richard Cook in the 200-
yard freestyle.
Stanford's All-American back-
stroker Randy Whitchurch hasn't
posted good times lately a n d
Chris Hansen should stick with
him.
Cardinals Terry Sutton and
Steve Strong provide experience
and talent in the 500 and 1000-
yard freesyle, but Wolverine
freshman Norm Semchyshen has
improved rapidly and s h o u I d
make the distance events excit-
mng.
Michigan's fine diving corps
won't be tested as only Wayne
Wager will make the trip from

divers aven't forgotten t n e i r

consin, so they should hit some
good dives tonight.
Win or lose, Michigan m u s t
face Michigan State tomorrow
afternoon at 4 p.m. in Matt Mann
Pool. Stager says he expects
no trouble from the Spartans,
and hopefully will be able to rest
some of the Wolverine squad.
