AT NATIONAL A. A. u. MEET
In recognition of his season of
sensational victories as Coah e o
Michigan's greatest swimming
team in the annals of the sport
here, Matt Mann yesterday re-
ceived a telegram from A. A. U.
authorities inviting him to be
one of the officials under whose
direction that body will hold its
annual senior championship next
week in the I. A. C. tank at Chi-
cago.,

Much s Wprise has been registered

In reward for the most successful
swimming campaign ever enjoyed byl
a Wolverine tank squad since the in-
auguration of the sport at the Univer-
sity, a record number of 15 natators
were designated yesterday to receive
varsity emblems upon recommenda-
tion by Coach Matt Mann.
Included in the list are the names
of three now nationally famous stars,
Capt. -Paul Samson, intercollegiate
and Conference record holder "in the
distance grinds; Robert Darnall,. one
o fthe greatest sprinters of recent
years and second perhaps only to
Bronson of Yale; and Richard Spjndle,
Big Ten back stroke champion and
conqueror of Hill of Minnesota, na-
tional champion.
Six of the men to win awards were
free stylers, Watson, Seager, Bement,
and Wagner being chosen along with
Sampson and Darnall. Watson and
Seager were members of the four men
200 yard straight relay team which
was undefeated throughout the year,
and which should take premier honors
in the national collegiate meet on
April 15-16 at Iowa City, which will
close the season.
Great Trio Of Backstrokes
Hubbell, Spindle, and J. Halsted,
all back strokers, composed the great-
est trio of dorsal splashers ever seen
at any American college, as evidenced
by their setting intercollegiate marks
in assorted relays at the start of they
year in preparation' for the Confer-
ence comnetition, and by their placing
first, third and fifth recently at Ur-
bana. Both Hubbell and Spindle are
sophomores, while Halsted will grad-
uate in June after being placed on the
official all-American mythical team
last year.
. Shorr and R. Halsted formed a
strong breast stroke pair, winning
half their dual meets and both go-
ing under the 2:50 mark for the 200
yard distance several times during the
season, the former swimming also on
the, championship medley relay trio
in all Michigan meets. Halsted will
return next year and ,should fill the
gap occasioned by the graduation of
the veteran who placed two seasons
consecutively.
Although the only event in which
the Wolverines failed to place at the
Big Ten meet was the fancy diving
contest, two of the form artists were
also selected on the basis of reliable
dual meet performances.
Starrett, who placed last year at the
Union pool in the Conference games,
scored several points throughout the
season but slumped a trifle at Urbana,
while Batter, also a 1926 letter man
in the back stroke was also judged
worthy of the award through0hisver-
satility, swimming the back stroke
and short sprint in addition to div-
ing. f

Bob iAeise
Hard hitting outfielder of the New
York Yankees who will again be seen
as a regular in th'e American league
team's lineup along with Babe Ruth
and Earl Combs.
This trio is one of the hardest hit-
ting combinations in either league
and ranks near the slugging outfit
of the Detroit Tigers. With the high
priced Bambino in left field most ofI
the ime, and Combs in center, Meu-
sel fits in the right garden. He takes
his turn at bat after the clean up
nman, and has a habit of hitting the
ball when hits mean most.
Already rated as a good outfielder,
Meusel could be one of the greatest in
the league if he took his work more
seriously, according to many New
York diamond critics.

thorities have offered the Illinois Ath-
letic association to let Werner com-
pete for Illinois in the annual relays
at Philadelphia. This step is the re-
sult of the fact that Pennsylvania did
not adopt the three year ruling un-
til after Werner began his Conference
career in 1924. While he is ineligible
j to compete in a Big Ten meet, he
may do. so at the Penn relays if the
lllinois authorities decide that the
act will in no way conflict with
local and Conference rulings.
At- the present time Werner is
starring for the Illinois Athletic club,
and recently broke a world's record.

Water Polo Players Awarded'
Two members of the water polo six
which reached the finals in the State
A. A. U. competition although failing
to win a game in the Conference,
again received their letters. These
were Mayer and Horn, of whom only
the latter will return next year.
Hapke, Hughes, Bailey, and Bene-
diet are to receive AMA insignia for
services rendered the team. Of these
the case of Hughes is most interest-
ing. He is an exceptionally fast stroke
swimmer and ai the start of the sea-
son was expected to outstrip Shorr
and Halsted until his leg was broken
in an accident. He will return next
year and will undoubtedly bolster the
team in this event.
During the past season Michigan
swimners covered themselves with
glory in all kinds of competition. Be-
gining the season with A. A. U. meets,
the Wolverines defended their laurels
as state champions by winning the
greatest number of points in the long
series of meets with many Detroit
stars as opposition.
To end their A. A. U. activities, two
medley relay trios Thursday finished
first and second in tihe national junior
championships at Toledo, establishing
a new record with the first team of
Hubbell, Shorr, and Darnall. Detroit
Yacht club won second place but was
disqualified for entering an ineligible
man, McClellan in the breast stroke.
By winning six consecutive dual
meets with other Conference schools
by overwhelming scores, making a
record margin of 60 to 9 against In-
diana, the Maize and Blue splash-
ers won the unofficial dual meet
championship. This was more than an
empty glory inasmuch as the power-
ful Conhers were submerged after
