Purple Gains Tie With Illinois For
Conference Title By Downing
Maize And Blue
By Edward L. Warner, Jr.
Annexing six out of eight events,
Northwestern's great swimming
team handed Michigan its first Big
Ten defeat in four years last night
by a 37-32 score before a capacity
crowd that occupied every avail-
able seat last night in the new In-
tramural building natatorium. The
meet was keenly contested from
the opening relay until the final
event, the Wildcats winning the
medley to clinch the meet and also
to tie for ,Conference dual meet
honors with Illinois.
The meet was marred by two
disqualifications, Michigan's relay
quartet being ruled out in the first
ace, While Peterson, Purple ;breast
stroker, was also disqualified.
Northwestern Wins Relay
The 200 yard relay was awarded
to Northwestern when one of the
Wolverines left his mark before his
predecessor had touched. Then in
the next event -the judges dis-
qualified Peterson for' two illegel
turns in the breast stroke, giving
first place to Golsmith. Michigan
had won the relay by five yards
before the premature start dis-
qualified them.
Al Schwartz, Northwestern's free
style ace, boosted the Purple cause
considerably by defeating Bob
Walker of Michigan in both the 50
and 100 yard races, and also swim-
wing anchor man on the medley
relay. Garnet Ault captured Mich-
gan's only first place by taking
the 440 yard free style in easy
fashion, winning by 15 yards.
In the 150 yard back stroke Dick
Hinch turned in a wonderful race,
beating Hubbell and Spindle by
four yards in the sensational time
of 1:42.6. This bettered ,the best
performance of the year made by
Wohl of Syracuse and many stand
as a new intercollegiate record.
Relay Loss Hurts
Michigan's unfortunate 'loss of
the relay put the Wolverines at a
disadvantage which they finally
overcame when Ault and Watson
placed one-two in the quarter mile
to lead, 18-15. Although losing the
next two events, the Wolverines
still led, 26-25, with two events re-
maiing. Northwestern assumed
he load by annexing first and
third in the fancy diving.
With the outcome hinging upon
he result of the medley relay, the
teams faced the gun for the decid-
ng race. Swimming anchor man,
Schwartz maintained this advant-
ge ~over Ault of the Wolverines to
linch the meet. A new intercol-
egiate mark of 3:12.6 was estab-
ished in this event.

being clocked in the fast time of
:23.6 seconds.
