Three National Intercollegiate Marks
Fall And One Established In
Crushing Victory
Michigan's 60 to 9 victory over the1
Indiana swimming team last night in
the Union pool was marked by the'
breaking of three national intercol-1
legiate swimming records and the'
establishing of one unofficial national
intercollegiate mark. The Wolverine
swimmers captured first and second
places in each of - the six events and
won both of the relay races.
Captain Paul Samson broke the first
record of the meet when he swam the
440 yard free style in the fast time
of 5:12.4, which is five seconds faster
than the previous mark. Six Varsity
men, Hubbell, Spindle, J. Halsted,!
Darnell, Batter, and R. Halsted bet-,
tered the existing marks for the 600
and 750 yard backstroke relays which

stroke relay. The time for the 600
yard event was 7:32.2 which is 15!
seconds fasterathan the Yale mark;
the time for the 750 yards was 9:36.3,
14 seconds better than Yale's mark;
while the time for the 900 yards was
The Wolverine team, composed ofj
Watson, Batter, Bement, and Darnell,
took the lead by winning the 200 yard'I
relay in easy fashion in 1:50.6. The
220 yeard breast stroke was featured

Uniform Taxi Rates Of One Dollar
Have Been Secured From
All Companies
Boradcasting of the 1928 J-Hop,
Feb. 11, is being considered by the
Detroit Alumni association, and it is
possible, according to Thomas 0.
Winter, '28, general chairman of the
aflir, that favorable arrangemnts
can be made for the financing, which
was felt to be prohibitive as far as the
J-Hop committee was concerned.
With the exception -of the radio
broadcasting, plans are completed, it
was announced, and the actual work
is being carried on rapidly. One of
the novelfeatures of this year's Hop
will be the showing of movies for the
I benefit of the patrons and patronesses.
Booth Drawings Next Week
Booth drawings will be made next
week, and will be announced on the
Imorning of the Hop, when the furni-
turenis to be moved in bythe respec-
tive booth committees.
Decorating the two gyunasiums will
begin on the Tuesday preceeding the
(lance, and will continue through Fri-
'day. Professional decorators design-
ed the decorative scheme and will do
the entire work of arrangment. The
state fire marshell will inspect the
decorations Friday.
Uniform taxi rates of $1 per couple

ment between all the companies and
the committee, it was announced yes-

decorations this year, the general
theme being "Medieval Royal." Stand-

bronze will stand at the corners of
the booths, which will number 50, all
of them being of equal size.
Paintings Will Feature
Four large transparent paintings,
hung' at the ends of each of the halls,
will be an unusual effect of this year's
scheme. These pictures will hang
from the ceiling. to the edge of the
balcony, and were painted especially
for this occasion.{
High arch/ays extending the length
of each of the rooms will be created
by drops of rose and gold satin trim-
med with huge gold tassels. The back
walls of the booths will be hung with
gold and silver metallic cloth, draped
-with folds of crimson satin.
For the first time, movies will be
shown for the entertainment of the
patrons and patronesses, the con-
mittee in charge announced yesterday.
A screen will be hung from the raft-
ers, facing the patron booth, but will
be high enough so as not to inter-
fere with the general decorative
scheme or the dancing. A projection
machine will be placed in the balcony,
and short comedies will be provided
at intervals during the evening. The
committee believes that this will pro-
vide divertisment for those patrsons
and patronesses who do not care to
Favors Distributed
Favors and programs for the J-Hop
are almost entirely distributed, but
those who have not secured theirs may
do so by making arrangements with
Paul L. Burton, '28E, cairman of the
favors committee.
Music fo rthe dancing will be pro-
( vided by Goldkette's Victor recording
orchestra and the Fletcher-Henderson
orchestra in Waterman gymnnasium,

dians will play in Barbour gymna-
The grand march is scheduled to be-
gin at 10:30, with the "Victors" pro-
vid ing the central tune, with perhaps
"Varsity" alternating with it.
Each fraternity or organization at-
tending the Hop must sign a copy of

the rules, and in adition must get the
permission of the office of the Dean
of Students for house parties to be
given, C. E. Robinson, '28E, of the
general committee has announced.

Through arrangement with the
eology department, Capt. Robert A.
Bartlett, noted Arctic explorer and
ommander of the "Morrissey," has
been secured to speak here Feb. 16,
in Natural Science auditorium on
The Cruise of the Morrissey."
In telling the story of this cruise,
which will include an account of the
angerous return voyage from Hol-
telborg, Captain Bartlett will pre-
ent moving pictures taken by repre-
entatives of the Pathe corporation
uring the expedition of the Univer-
ity of Michigan and the Putnam ex-
pedition to Greenland last summer.

Both courses in heredity and genet-
ics will be given by Prof. A. Franklin
