Michigan Natators Will Meet
Strongest Opponents
Next Friday.





According to Coach Matt Mann
there will be no let up in swimming
practice for the entire week, with
the Varsity working overtime in
preparation for the crucial meet of
the season. The Wolverines are
scheduled to encounter the mighty
Northwestern aggregation of nata-
tors at Evanston on Priday, and are
anticipating the hardest fought
Conference nieet of the season.
Northwestern has an imposing
array of swimmiters in almost every
event and with several impressive
victories woi in competition thus
far, the Wildcats are out to win over
the Conference champions.
Have Won Two.
The Maize and Blue swimmers
have won two Big Ten meets in
their race to retain the Western
Conference title. Indiana and Min-
nesota have both bowed in defeat
before the Michigan team this sea-
son. The Gophers met the Wolver-
ines last Saturday in the Intra-
mural pool anid lost the 'contest,
The Minnesota natators took on-,
ly one first place, as Coach Matt
Mann's proteges turned in a fine
exhibition of swimming, although
not hard pressed throughout the,
meet. Frank Walaitis again took
high scoring honors by annexing
first place in the diving, second in
the 50 yard free style, and swim-
ming on the winning free style re-
lay team.
Set New Record.
A new record for the Intramural
pool was set by the 200 yard relay
team when the quartet covered the
distance in 1:36, one-fifth of a sec-
ond slower than the .national in-
tercollegiate record for this event.
The team was composed of Smith,
Walker,'Walaitis and Hosmer.
Bob Goldsmith took first honors
in the 200 yard breast stroke. Bob
Walker took the 50 yard free style
with little difficulty, and Smith won
the century free style event

Lose to Indiana, 14-12

upheld his reputation by defeating
Ross with an advantage of 9 min-
utes and 30 seconds while Parker
had six minutes over 'his opponent,
G. Belshaw.
The feature bout of the evening
proved to be between Al Steinke
and Indiana's Olympic wrestler,
Captain Scott. Furious battling on
both sides failed to reach a deci-
sion, although at the end of the
match Steinke had a small time
advantage. This was too small to
win, however, and the referee, Bar-
ker, a former Michigan coach, de-
cided it a draw.
With the score 11-12 in Michi-
gan's favor, Auer battled Unger to
a draw through two exciting over-
time periods.

took possession of the puck near

Walter Miller of Highland Park,
is the new leader in the all-campus
foul shooting contest. Yesterday he
made 84 out of 100 shots. The pre-
vious record This year was held by
Van Ells who made 80. Van Ells I
holds the record for most consecu-
tive shots, having tossed in 17 in a
row. Miller made the most of 25,
flipping in 23. Sixty-five contest-
ants have shot to date. An individ-
ual gets 25 shots and must make
15 to qualify. Qualifying entitles
him to 75 additional shots. It is
expected that upwards of 800 me-

will compete in this tournament.
Anyone on the campus is eligible
and can shoot at any time.
Another upset was registered in
handball yesterday, this time in
the All-Campus doubles. Fried-
man and Axinn defeated Jone3 and
Navarre, last year's champions, in
two straight games by scores of 21-
19, 21-18. Axinn had previously
caused an upset by beating Navarre
in the singles.
Friedman-Axinn will meet the
winner of the Gorelick-Gretch and
Collins-Engleman match. From
the way they disposed of last year's
champs, Friedman and Axinn
should annex the title this year.
The seminfinal singles brings
Friedman against his doubles part-
ner, Axinn, in the lower bracket
and Jones against Wheeler in the
upper bracket.
Spring hitting practice will
begin next Monday at three
o'clock at the Field House. All
candidates please report at this
time, new men brilging their
own uniforms.

telephones are being installed. People are
learning that there is added utility in

This new field of activity was conceived
by commercial development men of the
