Michigan has won only four firstl
places in Conference competition and
has scored only 71 points as compar-
ed with 41, 33, 26, 18, and 14 first
places and 458, 323, 243, 281, and 1331

Definite announcement was finally3
made by Coach Mann concerning the
exact entries of his star natators.
Conference and national intercol-
legiate rules pfohibit one swiinmer
from competing in more than two in-
dividual events and one relay, and
coaches always are in the habit of
Jockeying their nominations in ac-
cordance with the expected strength
or weakness of the opposition.
SMann Announces Entries
With the most possible points as
the goal the free style Wolverines are
entered as follows: Watson, Seager,
Darnall, and Samson in the 200 yard'
straight relay; Darna'l 'and' Seager in
the 50 and 100 yard free style, with
Batter and Beient added in the sprint
and only the latter in the 100; Sam-
son and Wagner in the 220 and 440;
and Watson as anchor leg on the med-
ley relay trio.
Samson holds the season mark in
the 50 at :23,9, 2-10 better than Hirsh-
berger's Conference record but is'
sZved for the 220 and 440 events inl
which he is expected to lower his own
national intercollegiate records of.
j:17 1-5 and 5:1 3-5 in the long pool.
Michigan's entries in the 50, even
without Captain- Samson, are the
strongest pair, as shown by Darnall's
recent practice trials at :23 3-5 andI
23 4-5, equalling Bronson's intercol-
legiate record, .and his official season
mark of :24 1-5 which is. second only
to Samsn's in the Conference.
Seager should; place with any sort
of a start against Oker, Chicago's
sophomore credited with :25.1, Hirsch-
berger, Wisconsin record holden
whose best time this season has been
:25.4, and Manovitz, Northwestern
captain undefeated except by Samson.
Other speedy sprint stars include S.
Hill and Moody, Minnesota; Ritten-
flouse, Chicago; and Clark, Wisconsin.
Darnall Favorite In 100
With the same field in the 100, Dar-
nall should again defeat the defend-
ing champion, Moody, and should
crack the existing record of :55 2-5
by more thon one full second. Noyes
and McClintock, of Chicago and Iowa
arq'other possible scorers.,
Although the 220 Is not listed in
dual meet competition it is included
in the championship meet. Entries in
this event are as yet unknown but the
field will undoubtedly consist of some
of the 100 yard swimmers including
in this group Noyes, Moody, Zaiser,
of Indiana, and Druiding, of North-
Minnesota will not enter her
strongest swimmers because of the
the stellar Wolverines entered.
Outside of the free style events
Michigan does not so completely dom-
inate the field and it is not expected
to tally any first places with the pos-1
sible exception of the back stroke,
where the feature duel of the meet
should take place between J. Hill,
Minnsota's national champion, and
the star Wolverine trio composed of'
Spindle, Hubbell, and J Halsted.
Expect Duel In Back Stroke
Spindle and J. Hill hold the sea-i
son's mark of 1:45.3 jointly, 5 3-51
seconds better than Hill's, Conference,
mark. Hubbell is Michigan's other
sophomore star who must be reckoned
with, while J. Halsted,. runnerup last
year, may return to old form to de-

Coach Moakley put his men through
several hard workouts prior to his
announcement that 34 men would
nmake the trip, and several fine per-
formances were turned in. The races
were not run over the regular com-
petition distances, however, being re-
stricted to a certain number of laps
si by the coach.
Orthman, Moor, Frincke, and Day-
ton ran an especially close race in
a six lap run, with Frincke coming
from behind in the last few yards to
overtake Dayton and Orthman, who
had set the pace. The time of 1:57.2
established a new record for the year
on a board track.
Goodwillie proved his superiority in
the 50 yard dash by winning in the
final race from Young and Auerbach,
who had each won one heat in the
rather slow time of 5.8. In the hur-
gles Cassebaum was the most out-
standing man. He won the 65 highs
,.rom Carruthers and Wells, and then
placed second to Young in the 65

Only -a few months ago Johnson
aroused nation-wide interest in the
baseball world by opposing the re-
naming of Judge Landis as baseball's
high commissioner, but failed utterly
in his attempt
In fact, so complete was his fail-
ure that the American league mag-
nates put a more forceful curb on his
powers than they did a few years ago,
when the fiery prexy first chose to
oppose the will of Landis.
At that time the Judge threatenedF
to resign his position unless John-
son was made to stop criticising the,
commissioner's actions, and, through
the power of Charles Comiskey, own-
er of the Chicago White Sox, John-
son was forced to hold his tongue,
where upon the owners pledged faith
in Landis, and things went smooth-
ly until the late fracas.
