SHORR, SPINDLE, SEAGER SET
NEW MARK IN MEDLEY
RELAY EVENT
COLBATH WINS DIVE
Samson and Spindle Account For
Other Record in 100 Yard Free
Style And 150 Yard Back Stroke
Two more individual Conference
tank records were shattered last night
in the Union pool while the Wolver-
ine swimmers were submerging Coach
Tom Robinson's Northwestern Wild-
cats, Samson established a new mark
of :54 3-5 in the 100 yard free style
and Spindle lowering Jim Hill's stand-
ard in the 150 yard back stroke from
1:50.9 to 1:47. Spindle, Shorr, and
Seager were clocked in the new time
of 3:21 in the medley relay to make
the final scor 52-17.
Walter Colbath, Central A. A. U.'
fancy diving champion, gained the
only first place for the Purple swim-
mers Iy -winning his specialty hand-
ily from Bailey and Starritt of the
Michigan team, who scored second and
third places in that event.
Captain Paul Samson and Paul Man-
ovitz of the rival squads provided
some of the evening's thrills when
they met on three different occasions
during the program, the Michigan
leader winning all of the decisions.
'Samson retained a large lead over
Manovitz in the 200 yard relay, touch-
ed out his opponent in the 50 yard free
style and beat him badly in the 100
yard crawl while making his newest
record. Seager and Watson took thirds
in the latter events.
Eight more points were added to
the total piled up by Coach Matt
Mann's powerful team when Wagner
and Darnell finished one-two ahead
of Druiding, Northwestern, in the 440
yard free style. Watches caught Wag-
ner at 5:24 2-5, while Darnell wal only
two feet behind at the finish after set-
ting the pace for more than 15 of the
18 laps.
Sliorr Wins Breast Stroke
Swimming the distance with flaw-
less mechanical precision, Shorr of
the Wolverine squad outdistanced his
teammate, Halsted, and the North-
Western entrant, Bayer, by more than
one full tank length in the good time
of 2:50 3-5, despite the lack of com-
petition.
Shorr, Spindle, and Seager, the lat-
ter only recently declared eligible for
competition, increased the toll of fal-
len records to three by splashing the
300 yard medley relay in the remark-
able time of 3:21. This performance
reduced the former mark of 3:23 3-5
set by the Gopher trio, in the Union
tank last year during the Conference
meet which was won by Minnesota.
The Wolverine '200 yard straight'
relay quartet opened the program by
leading the Wildcats by a wide mar-
gin in the good time of 1:41, only 4-5
of a second slower than the Confer-
ence mark of 1:40.2.
Seager swam the initial lap of the
first event to gain an advantage of a
scant yard over Colbath, and Darnell
increased the lead to more than two
yards by out speeding McDonald. Mil-
ler lost more grouh'd for the North-
western four-man team by failing to
keep pace with Watson who swam the
fastest leg of the event. Samson, sav-
ing energy for events to come, was
content to loaf in more than six yards
ahead of Manovitz although he might
easily have broken another record if
he had extended himself.E
Lose in Water Polo
Judges were stationed at the 40
yard mark to catch the contestants'
times during the course of the 50
yard sprint race. Although handi-
capped by a dismally poor start, Sam-
son managed to approach to within
1-10 sec. of the national intercollegi-
ate mark of :18.4 in the 40 yard crawl
in the long pool. He also came with-
in 2-5 of one second of the Confer-
ence record for the 50 yard event,
:24.1, made by Hirschberger of Wis-
consin.1

The water polo encounter was won
by the Northwestern team by a score
of 7-4. Miller and Manovitz starred
for the Conference champions.

SWIMMER SHIFTS TO
LONG DISTANCE RACE

itnge o pi ans, LnevarsiTy
tennis squad will continue to volley
daily in Waterman gymnasium. This
form of conditioning will continue un-
til the latter part of March when
Coach Hutchins expects to remove his?
suay to the outdoor concrete courts
on Ferry field, providing the weather
is favorable.
Despite the loss of rraue, Vose, and
Krickbaur, member of last year's
team, the squad appetdrs to be unus-
wally well balanced. Captain Olian and
Stephens, veterans, snould show de-.
ciaed improvement over last year,j
while the appearance of Moore and
Barton, the latter also a track man,
lirightens prospects considerably. Both!
Moore and Barton are sophomores and
are eligible for three more years of
competition.
These men with the possible addi-
tion of Goldsmith, Toeves, O'Brien, or
Finkleman should provide stiff coin-
petition for any Conference team.
Goldsmith was not on the campus,
last year; Toeves is a junior, and the
latter two are A. M. A. men. Algyer,
a sophomore, has also shown con-
siderable promise.
When outdoor practice is possible,
Coach Hutchins will conduct a
round robin tournament todetermine
the regular team members. This tour-.

campus foul shooting tournamnent will
be inaugurated. The winner and
runner-up in this contest will be
awarded loving cups.j
All entrants will report at the in-
tramural office between 2 and 5 o'clock
any afternoon this week. The quali-
fying round will consist of 25 throws
from the free throw line, and all con-
testants making 15 or more success-
ful throws out of the 25 will advance
to the finals, which will consist of
two more rounds, the first composed
of 35 throws and the second of 40. The
number of successful throws in these
two rounds will be added to the score
made in the qualifying round, and the
person making the greatest number of
baskets out of the 100 shots will be
declared the winner, second place go-
ing to the person with the second
highest total of successful throws.

Veteran pitcher of last year's base-

Star Wolverine sprint swimmer who
entered his first long distance race

WE ARE NOW TAKING MEASUREMENTS FOR REN-

Entries Are Closed
For Kentuckr Derby
With 1 56 Starters
Entries for the 53rd renewal of the
added Kentucky Derby, which will be
run off Saturday, May 14, at Church-i
hill Downs, Louisville, Ky., were clos-
ed with a list of 156 horses signed
up. The list was made public by
Col. M. J. Winn, vice-president of
the Kentucky Jockey club.
Included in the list are all the stake
winners of last yearttogether with
probably most of the three year olds
who would be considered to have a
chance in the classic.
An international aspect will be giv-
en to the race by the presence of six
imported colts. Chief among this ex-
sextet is The Satrap, rated last year
as England's best two year old and
brought to this country by Mr. Wil-
liam du Pont, Jr., who paid the sum
of $100,000 for him. Justice F, an-
other English horse, is also being
watched after his recent victory in
the Lincoln handicap held at New
Orleans.
Scapa Flow by Man o' War is one.
of the most popular native entries. He
has won three of six races entered.
Fair Star, greatest money winning
two year old, will also be expected
to prove his mettle. Among the win-
nings of this colt last year were the
Belmont Futurity and United States
Hospital meets. Placed first with re-
spect to wins, however, is Osmond who
won first money in six out of seven
starts .
Kiev, by Stefan the Great, winner
of the Grand Union Hotel Stakes is
another of the imported entries which
is being emphasized. The famous
Whitney stables are represented by
seven entries among which Valor-I
