to Battle Creek on May 25 to give an
exhibition for the students of Battle
Creek college. Coach ,Matt Mann,.
whose proteges have captured the Big
Ten and National Collegiate chain-
pionships this year will accompany
the swimmers.
The Battle Creek exhibition will
mark the last appearance of five
members of the Varsity team, eN-cap-
tain Paul Samson, John 1-alsted, Mau-
rice Shorr, Paul Starrett, and Al
Mayer are the Wolverine tankien
who have completed three years of
competition. Samson's loss will be felt
the most as he won the 220 and 440
yard freeN style national intercolle-
giate titles this season.
Halsted was a back stroker cn this
year's team. He placed second in the
conference championships in 1926,
but Spindle andm ubbell, sophomore
stars, were the regular back strok-
ers this season. Shorr swam in the
breast stroke, taki wg fourth in the'
Big Ten meet at Urbana. Starrett
competed in the fancy diving, being
the most consistent performer in that
event on the Wolverine squad. Mayer
