Fast Times Expected in Annual Big Ten
Swimming Meet Scheduled for This Week

Wolverines Will Leave Thursday
for Illinois Where Title
Bouts Are Scheduled.
With a two-point defeat at the
hands of Indiana as the only set-
back of the dual meet season, the
crack Wolverine wrestlers will
leave for Illinois Thursday for the
Big Ten individual championships
to be held on Friday and Saturday.
Coach Keen expects to take the.
entire squad with the exception of
the 118 pound class. The possi-
bilities for individual champion-'
ships coming to the Michigan mat-
men appear best in the 128 pound
division, with Captain Hewitt hav-
ing a recofd of all wins back of
him for the season. Kelly in the.
158 pound class is expected to fur-
nish material for a Big Ten indi-
vidual crown since he too has a
clean slate behind him. Anotherl
Wolverine star upon whom is
pinned hopes of bringing in the
168 pound class crown is Ray Par-
ker. He has shown fine ability all
season and is the third man of
Keen's squad to go through the en-
tire season undefeated.
Outside possibilities appear best
In the 175 pound class and in the
heavyweight division with Steinke
and Auer as the Michigan entries.
Steinke has shown Improvement
during the entire season and
stepped into the spotlight last Sat-

highly touted Badger star. Auer's
inexperience may be an obstacle

Editor's Note: An attempt
will be made in this article to
discuss the merits of the vari-
ous competitors in the Confer-
ence championship swimming
meet at Evanston this week,
and their chances to place in
the various events.
160-yard Relay.
Michigan's fast quartet, holder of
the world's record in this event,
will be the favorite to capture the
opening relay, a title which they
have held for two years. The com-
bination of Walker, Walaitis, Smith,
and Hosmer is likely to establish a
new record, as they have bettered
the Big Ten mark of 1:15.4 several!
times in competition. Wisconsin
and Northwestern will wage a
merry battle for second place, with
the Wildcats slight favorites if
Schwartz is a member of the quar-
tet. With Schwartz confining his
activities to other events, the
Badgers may defeat the Purple
team, as they covered the distance
in 1:14 against Illinois. Fourth
place should go to Illinois, with
Minnesota and Chicago as other
possible place winners.-
220-yard Breast Stroke.
Back to defend his Conference
title, Don Peterson of Northwestern
will be favored to win the breast
stroke, as he has defeated all his
chief rivals in dual meets. Bob

Goldsmith of Michigan should push
Peterson to a new record, while
Bob Howlett of the Wildcat,
should also be up in the race. Oth,
er entries in this race include
Schroeder and Holbrook of Illinois
Meyer of Wisconsin and Evans of
Iowa who compose the fastest fielt
in the history of the event. Kerz
of ,Minnesota and Miller of Michi-
gan have outside chances to place.
40-yard Dash.
As is always the case, the 40-yarC
sprint is more or less of a gamble
because a star swimmer may bi
eliminated due to a poor start o:
faulty turn. Last year Schwart:
of Northwestern met defeat in the
preliminaries at the hands of Ernie
lReif of Michigan. This timE
ISchwartz will be back to redeen
himself, and he should succeed i:
he is in form. The Purple captain
has bettered the Conference recorn
