Maroons Strongest Itn Breast Stroke,
Fancy Dive and Dash Events; j
Weak In Back Stroke
Michigan will meet Chicago at 7:30
o'clock tonight in a dual swimming
meet at the Union pool. Both teams
have perfect dual meet records so far
this season, but Michigan because of
its decisive victory over Wisconsin
last Friday is conceded a slight edge
over the Chicago team.
The Varsity should not encounter
a great degree of difficulty in winning
the relay event, the first on the pro-
gram, as the Michigan quartet com-
posed of Capt. Jack Gow, Samson,
Darnall, and Batter is one of the fast-
est in the Conference, while Capt. Ed
Noyes is the only individual who will
have to be figured with on the Maroon7
The second event on the program,
the 200 yard breast stroke, gives pro-1
mise however of developing into a
closely contested affair, Mygdal, of
Chicago, and Shorr and Whittingham,<
both of Michigan, having been timed 1
in two minutes ,52 seconds in this
race last week in the Chicago-Indiana,l
Michigan-Wisconsin meet. The Mich-
igan swimmers have a slight theoret-
ical advantage in that their time wasf
made in a 25 yard pool, while Mydgal's
mark was made in a 20 yard pool-
which gave him the benefit of two
additional turns.
The race between Captain Noyes,
Chicago, and Captain Gow and Dar-
nall, Michigan, in the 100 yard free
style should also prove a close race,
all of the men having covered the
distance in less than 57 seconds. Chi-
cago appears to be weak in the back
stroke and 440 yard free style swims
and the Michigan entries should win
in easy fashion. Clarence Batter and
either John or Robert Halsted wil
swim in the back stroke, while Paul"
Samson and red Dunakin will be the
Michigan distance entries.
A battle for first place honors is
expected to develop between Felling-
er and Wilder of Chicago and Starrett
and Harrison of Michigan in the fancy
live. Fellinger won first place against
Indiana with hs team-mate Wilder
placing second, while Harrison took
first and Starrett second in the Mich-
igan-Indiana meet. Starrett however
beat our Harrison for second place
in the diving last week, which was!
won by Wheatley of Wisconsin.
Michigan's undefeated water polo
team will meet its strongest opponent
of the season in the Chicago team.
The Maroons have been playing prac-
tice games with the Illinois and Chi-
cago Athletic clubs since before
Christmas vacation and are in the
best possible condition, and boast a
strong passing combination. Mich-
igan will rely on Captain Gow, Sam-1
son, and Mayer to assume the offen-
live against the Maroons.
Chicago's team will hold a light
workout in the Union pool either this
morning or afternoon, but will not in-
dulge in anything more than easy
races and possibly a little limbering
up practice on the turns. Michigan
will hold no practice prior to the

record 'for the quarter mile is not
bad for a runner who doesn't lik.,
his race. So when Orthel Roberts of
St. Louis, Mo., came to the tape inI
:51 during a time trial at the Uni-
versity of Iowa last week, intense
surprise was manifest among coaches
and athletes.F
Roberts, who is entering his third
year of competition is normally a 2201
man, one of the best in the confer.
ence. But indoor tracks prohibit his
favorite race so the Hawkeye, whol
missed the Big Ten 220-yard dash}
record by just one tenth of a second I
last spring must worry along as a
quarter miler. 3
Coach Bresnahan introduced him to
the 440 in 1924 and he ran second
leg on the mile relay team which
was unbeaten, winning at the Illinois
relays, Indoor conference, Drake and
Kansas relays. But he disliked the
race so much that the veterans, Cap-
tain Brookins and Morrow had to I
"key"' him up for each encounter.
Experience took some of his aver-
sion, however, and he placed in the:
Big Ten indoor 440 fast season and'
again ran on the Hawkeye mile team.
But outdoors he returned to his first
loves, the 100 and 220-yard dashes andI
won points in both the Western Con-:!
ference and National Collegiate meets.

Varsity baseball squad will re-

Seven Bouts Will Be Staged After
Iowa-Ohio. Basketball Gaitie
At Columbus Tonight,
Michigan opens the eastern division
of the Conference wrestling season to-
night meeting the veteran Ohio State
wrestlers at Columbus in seven bouts
directly after the Iowa-Ohio basket-
ball game.
The Conference has been divided
into eastern and western divisions for
wresting competition among the var-
ious schools in order to obviate the
necessity of long trips and to cut
down expenses. There are five schools
in each division and at the end of the
season the winners of each division
will meet to decide the championship.'
The individual meet which determ-
ines individual winners will be held
at Purdue this 'year and men fromI
every school in the Conference will
vie for individual championships as
Ohio boasts a team composed of five
veterans for tonight's bouts, and pro-
vided that Roshon and Vercoe recov-
er from their sprained shoulders, the
Buckeyes will be able to put their
strongest lineup into the meet.
On paper the Buckeyes hold a de-
cided advantage in only the heavy div-
ision where they have Whitacre one
of the best heavyweights in the Con-i
ference. Michigan has no real heavy-
weight and Coach Keen is sending
Greiling to wrestle in this class al-j
though he is only a light heavy-j
weight, and consequently will be un-R
der approximately a 20 pound hand-
xcept in the heavyweight class and
in spite of a lack of material Coach
Keen has a well balanced team which
should give a creditable showing in
their first meet of the year.{

With most of his athletes applying
themselves to their books, Coach
Mather will find it difficult to get the
entire squad out for a single practice
until after examinations. This will
permit of but three hard workouts
before the intersectional clash with
Syracuse two weeks from today.
But eight members of the squad re-
ported for yesterday afternoon's work-
out, and not one of the first five ap-
peared in uniform, Petrie, Martin,
Reece, Gawne, W. Kuenzel, F. Kuen-
zel, Schroeder and Ginn were out on
i the floor.
The Skipper ordered a lengthy foul
shooting drill as this year's squad is
exceptionally weak in this depart-
Coach Mather then ordered the play-
ers to shoot fouls with their eyes
E shut, believing that they could come
just as close to making the free
throws count when they eyes were
closed as when they were open.
Petrie, the first to shoot with his
eyes shut, shot three out of four fouls
without looking at the basket. The
others did not fare as well, but they
were all able to sink the ball- through
the net at least once while their eyes
Were closed.
Shooting and taking the ball off
the backboard consumed the greater
part of the afternoon's work. Coach
Mather is determined to have his play-
ers follow up every field goal that is
attempted during a game, and will
stress this phase of the game during
the next two weeks.
No practice will be held today, but
work will start again on Monday.
Scrimmages will be held each after-
noon, providing that ten players show
up for practice.
