Darnall Sets New National Record In
Dash Event As Ten-in Captures
Title For Second Time
By Arv Schaleben, The Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, March
24-Michigan swimmers, breaking re-
cords on the way, paddled to a de-
cisive win and the championship in
the Western Conference swimming
meet finals staged at the Minneapolis
Athletic club pool tonight.
Michigan counted 53 points, a new
scoring mark, to gain its triumph.
Northwestern finished second with 29
points, nosing out Minnesota, which
finished third by gathering in 12
points in the last two events. The
Gophers made 25 points. Iowa and
Illinois followed the three leaders
with four points each and Chicago
trailed with a single point.
Seven records toppled during the
battle, five Big Ten marks and two
national intercollegiate. Of these,
Michigan accounted for five and
Northwestern two.
The first event saw Michigan's 160-
yard relay boys off to an early lead,
which they maintained even though
forced to splash to, a Conference record
of 1:15 1-2 to defeat the Minnesota

much-cuffed Wolverines, 50-45, over a
great Cornell track team that had pre-
viously annexed the Eastern intercol-

Michigan during the indoor season,
and brought the year to a success-
