PURPLE COUNTS ON
Challengers Hold Slight Edge
But Michigan Has Good
Chance to Win.
SEEN AT GIANTS' TRAINING CAMP
Highland and Wilcox, Artists
of Free Style, Expected
to Make Points.
Having done with their only home
appearance of the season with the
exception of the National Intercol-
legiates the Wolverine swimmers
will encounter the well-balanced
Northwestern tank team in Evans- I
ton on Friday for the dual meet
championship of the Big Ten.
The Wildcats boast strength in
every event and because of this
balance are given a slight edge in
favoritism over the Maize and Blue.
In spite of the dopesters predictions
the Wolverines, in the role of the
under dog, have a good chance to
give the Purple tank men a set-
back. Michigan has a host of out-
standing stars which may be able to
pile up enough points to outscore
the consistent performers of the
Free Stylers Strong.
Northwestern is exceptionally
strong in the free style races with
its two most outstanding perform-
ers, Highland arnd Wilcox, carrying
a long list of tank victories in their
records. In addition to these two
top-notchers the Purple have an-
other good free styler in Captain
Highland will probably be enter-
ed in the 100 and the two relays.
Also entered in the century race
will be Wilcox who will have an ad-
dition to this swim on the free
style relay and either the 220 or
440. The Purple captain will be on
the 400-yard relay team and in the
220 and quarter-mile swims.

Another crack man on the North-
western aggregation is Murphy, a
backstroker, who will give Mich-
igan's Drysdale a real battle in the
150-yard back stroke. Murphy look-
ed exceptionally well in his perfor-
mances to date. In the 200-yard
breast stroke Michigan should take
the first two places with Captain
Miller and Lemak.
The 300-yard medley relay will be
a batle royal with the National in-
tercollegiate record breaking Maize
and Blue team of Drysdale, Lemak
and Schmieler meeting the strong
Diving Hopes Hit.
Northwestern's diving hopes re-
ceived a severe blow at the end of
the first semester when Wilkie,
sophomore spring board artist, was
lost to the team due to scholastic
difficulties. However, the Wildcats
have a real top-notcher in diving in
Willard who placed second in the
Big Ten championships last year.
Michigan's diving contingent will
leave today, a day before the re-
mainder of the tankers in order to
become accustomed to the Evanston

while Micihgan ahd six players on
the ice in the first two contests. It
was only when a Wolverine was sit-
ting in the penalty box that they
scored. Coach Lowrey gave his team
a strenuous practice last night, and
continually cautioned them against
illegal playing. When the drill end-
ed, he said that peantlies would not
beat Michigan this time.
Minnesota romped over Wiscon-
sin 10-1 while Michigan beat theme
7-1 and 5-0. When Coach Tomp-
son of the Cardinals was asked to
compare the two teams after the
second Wisconsin game here, he
said that Minnesota probably holds
an edge, in that they have greater
reserve space. He continued that
if there was one day of rest be-
tween the two matches, Michigan
would have a better chance.
Gophcrs :Need One Win.
The Northinen need olny one vic-
tory in the two games, to clinch the
Big Ten crown while the Wolverines
must win twvice to continue their
record - breaking leadership f o r
Conference hockey honors.
The best hockey of the season for
Michigan fans will be played by the
two teams, Coach Lowrey thinks.
If Bill Williams, Ted Chapman, Joe
Frumkes, and Keith Crossman all
recover from their illnesses and in-
j uries, Michigan will be consider-
ably stronger than when they play-
ed Marquette last week.
