Coach Matt Mann's Varsity swim-
ming team, National Collegiate and
Big Ten champions and without a
doubt the strongest tank squad in the
country today, will make its final ap-
pearance at home this year when it
clashes with Northwestern tonight.
The meet will be held in the Intra-
mural pool beginning at 7:30, and
workmen have been busy this week
erecting bleachers enough to hold
1,200 spectators, assuring that there
will be no turning away of students
as was the case at the Michigan-On-
tario All-Stars meet three weeks ago.
Wildcats Are Old Rivals
The Wildcats, National Collegiate
champions in 1929, 1930, and 1933,
have long been Michigan's strongest
competitors for Big Ten and nation-
wide honors, and tonight's meet will
be a renewal of an ancient and bitter
Coach Tom Robinson's men have
been victorious in most of their en-
counters to date this year, but have
performed in a careless fashion,
throwing away many individual wins.
Tonight they are determined to cast
off their lethargy and really push
the National Champions.
Five End Home Careers
Tonight's meet will mark the fare-
well appearance of five regulars on
the squad, Co-captains Bob Renner
and Taylor Drysdale, Tex Robertson,
Ogden Dalrymple, and Ed Drew. Rob-
ertson is only a junior, but one year's

Cody Unable To Swin
Missing in the same event will be
Fred Cody, Detroit sophomore, who
has pushed Drysdale in every race
this year. Cody sustained a hand in-
jury yesterday that required three
stitches to close, but he will be back
in the fold for the Conference meet
next week.
Before the meet, beginning at 7
p.m., Coach Mann is planning to send
a team of 18 men after the American
record for the mile free-style relay.

Varsity Grapplers Are
In Windy City For Meet
Michigan's Varsity matmen are
in Chicago today to compete in
the Big Ten meet that is being held
there today and tomorrow. Coach
Keen took only a four man team
with him to wrestle for the Wolv-
erines, grapplers who could be best
depended on to come through with
Frank Bissell who was expected
to be in the running was forced to
stay home with injuries. The four
who are in Chicago are Capt. Har-
rod of the 145-pounders, Wally
Heavenrich, who is out for the
135-pound crown, Seymour Rubin
in the 126-pound group, and Bill
Lowell at 175 pounds.

|T racksters Go
To Chicago To
Defend Crown
Captain Harvey Smith To
Enter Only One Event-
Alix To Run In Mile
The strongest, track team in Mich-
igan history will leave this afternoon
for Chicago and the defense of its
Conference indoor crown, Saturday,
determined not only to retain the
title but to set a new high-scoring
mark for the meet.
The squad went through its final
workout yesterday, but without the
services of Captain Harvey Smith, fa-
vored to win the mile and half-mile
in the Big Ten meet. Smith has been
suffering from a head cold which has
confined him to bed, but is expected
to work out today before leaving and
will run in at least one event.
Alix Will Be in Mile
Coach Charlie Hoyt said yesterday
that with Smith entered in but one
event, the half-mile, Neree Alix would
be doubled in both tie mile and two-
mile. The junior distance star, defend-
ing champion in the two-mile event,
has not run the mile in competition
this year.
Observers were quick to point out,
however, that although Smith is re-
tired from one event, the Michigan
score will not be materially effected,
for it will give an opportunity to
place to another Wolverine entry.
Howard Davidson in the half-mile
event was pointed to as the example
of that advance should Smith not
be entered, for the sophomore star
would be expected to make an al-
most certain bid for first place. Da-
vidson has recorded better times in
each succeeding race, culminating
with 1:56.6 against Ohio State. In
addition Paul Gorman, who placed
fifth last year, would be given a high
chance to place.
Coach Hoyt looks for Alix to make a
serious bid for a high place in the mile
should he be entered, crediting him
with being capable of a time which
would mean almost certain placing.
Barnes Is Out of Sprint
With the exception of Konrad Moi-
sio, who reported a slight leg injury,
the remainder of the squad reported
in top condition yesterday. The only
serious injury of the year will keep
Davey Barnes, the junior dash star
who went to the finals last year, from
running. Barnes pulled a muscle in
the dash event against Ohio State
and will not make the trip to Chi-

}ACCORDING to March 6th dis-
patches from Melbourne, Aus.,
Eddie Tolan is still the great "money"
runner he proved himself to be while
at the University and in the 1932
Olympic games at Los Angeles.
Tolan has taken the lead over a
field of famous sprinters in their bat-
tle for the world professional title by
winning two firsts in the 75 and 100-
yard dashes. His time of 9.8 seconds
for the century was comparatively
slow, the accepted world record be-
ing 9.4.
T lan' needs only seconds in
the remaining two events, the
134Eand 220-yard sprints, to take
the title from Austin Robertson,
Australian runner, who has fn-
ished second and third in the two
races already held. Tolan's other
rivals are T. L. Roberts of New
South Wales, and Willie McFar-
lane of Scotland.
Incidentally Phil Diamond, track
expert extraordinary, tells us that a
sprint at the odd distance of 130
yards, as run by the pros, should be
the fastest in the books. Although
Steve Farrell used to delight his aud-
ience with stories about the English-
man who could run 300 yards at full
speed, Diamond agrees with most
track experts that 130 yards is the
longest distance most sprinters can
run at full speed. And, as Diamond
points out, the 130 has the advantage
over the 100 in that the full second
lost in the start and first 10 yards
of a sprint is less important at the
longer distance.
Bill McAfee, one of the greatest
hurlers Michigan has produced, has
retired from organized baseball, but
his younger brother has come to
Michigan in the hope of performing
behind the plate for the Wolverines
in 1936, '37, and '38. His name is
Howard and he caught every game
for Carl -Schurz high school in Chi-
cago last year. He is an engineer;
bats and throws right-handed.

With the disastrous basketball sea-

look forward to next year. From the
men who played on the freshman
squad this winter we have selected a
team of five men, all of whom have
shown Varsity potentialities.

George Gesquire and Don
Brewer are placed at the forward
positions. Gesquire did not receive

He prepped at Grosse Pointe
High, while Brewer attended De-
troit Southeastern. Gesquire was
a member of the Pointe team that
went .to the State finals a year
ago, winning himself a place on
the all-tourney team.
Earl Townsend, John's older broth-
er who played a year of Varsity bask-
etball at DePauw, is rated at one
guard position with Joe Rinaldi at
the other. Rinaldi, the fourth mem-

ber of the team from Indiana (Elk-
hart), is the shortest man on the
team, but also one of the fastest.
