Michigan Wrestlers To Leave

Today For West Virginia

One of Michigan's national col-
legiate swimming records went by
the boards last week when Al
Schwartz of Northwestern swam
the century free style in :52.9 sec-
onds, clipping two-tenths of a sec-
ond from Bob Darnall's record.
The new mark was made in a dual
meet between the Purdue and
Northwestern tank teams, which
the Wildcats won easily, 49-19.
Darnall, last year's Varsity cap-
tain, established the 100-yard rec-
ord in the Conference champion-
ships at Minneapolis last year
when he swam the distance in :53.1
seconds to win the event. The
record is for a 40-foot tool.
The Wildcats encountered liGtle
difficulty, capturing six out of eight
first places, and tying for first in
another event. Ward was the only
Boilermaker to win an event, an-
nexing the 440-yard swim. Nicker-
son of Purdue and Peterson of
Northwestern finished in a dead
heat in the 40-yard sprint.
Both Purple relay teams were
victorious, while the individual
Northwestern winners included
Waite in the breast stroke, Hinch
in the back stroke, Colbath in the
diving, and Schwartz. The Wild-
cat water polo team also scored a
victory, 16-3. Schwartz scoredj
seven goals, while Colbath talliedI
