SAMSON BREAKS MR
IN ISTATEA. A. U. MEET'
Spindle, Darnal, And J. IkdsteadI
Other Varsity Swhnniers To Show
Well At Union Pool
WINIFRED SMITH STARS!
Featured by the remarkable per-
formance of Captain Samson of the
Varsity squad in the 50 yard free
style event, and by the shattering of
,two other records during the course
of the meet, Michigan's swim. team
advanced another step in retaining
their laurels as state A. A. U. champi-
onp last" night in the Union Rool.
Samson's new record of :24.1 sec-
onds in the 50 yard free style contest
bettered the former mark of .:24.8 set
last year by Darnal, and also the time
made by Craig, of Northwestern high!l
school, :24.7, done in the first trial
heat last night. Craig's effort proved
to be the undoing of the speedy Colt
natator ,and he was forced to re-
linquish second honors to Darnal in
the final heat.
Another record was toppled in thel
junior women's 150 yard medley when
Miss Winifred Smith, of the Women's
Athletic club and a member of the
1924 Olympic team, was clocked at i
2:10.8, almost three seconds faster
than the former mark of 2:13, set by
Miss B. Johanson ,of the Detroit Yacht1
club last year. Miss G. Soederlund,
of the Detroit Yacht club and Miss
E.- Fehr, of the Women's, Athletic!
club, finished second and third, re-'
spectively, in this event.
Miss Fehr. also was returned winnerj
of the first event on the program, the
50 yards free style championship con-
test for junior women. Miss Johanson
and Miss K. Soederlund, both of the
Detroit Yacht club followed in order,
the time being :31 seconds flat.
In the 150 yard backstroke, Spindle, I
of the Varsity tank squad made -the
touch in 1:50.2, displacing the former
record of 1:53.3, and giving him first
place over Durr, Northwestern, and
J Halsted, who placed second in the1
Other winners were as follows:
Beebe, Cooper, and Burkheiser, in the
boys' 25 yard free style; Miss B. Sex-
ton, of the Detroit Yacht club, Miss
B. Johanson, and Miss F. Sharp, of
the Women's Athletic club in the 251
yard handicap breast stroke.

Among the basketball teams that
trailed the four leaders last year, Wis-
consin alone seems certain to be in the
fight for championship honors al-
though some of the others, notably
Chicago, may surprise. The Maroon
hopes depend solely on the develop-
ment of an effective offense.
( Coach Meanwell, whose Badger
iteams have been below standard for
the past two years, has a wealth of
new material in addition to eight
letter men from last year. Besides
Behr, one of the high scorers of the
1926 season, the other letter men in-
clude Andrews, Hotchkiss, Harget and-
Nelson at forward, and Barnum, Mer-
kle and Powers at guard.
Of the new men, Kowalczyk, an-
other terror for sports writers and
telegraphers, seems almost certain to
land a regular job at center in which
event Behr will probably move to for-
ward. Other sophomores who have
shown well include Welch and Mans-
field at forward and Stotts, Murphy
and Doyle at guard although the latter
has great possibilities as a center.
At least two of the younger players
are counted on as regulars and pros-
pects are good for a championship
contender although there are other
teams in the Conference of high cali-
bre, notably Indiana and Iowa.
At Chicago, Coach Norgren is con-
fronted with the same problem he had
last year, that of developing an of-
fense. Captain Alyea, center, w,-#
the only regular to be lost by gradua-"
