Ohio State, Illinois, And
Iowa Entertain Hopes Of
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 15. -
(Special) - The oft-repeated cry of
"Beat Michigan" was resounding over
the University of Illinois campus to-
night as the members of the various
Big Ten swimming teams rested be-
fore the annual Conference cham-
The Wolverines, cock-sure and
stronger than ever, are overwhelming
favorites to win their eighth title in
nine years, but Illinois, Ohio State,
and Iowa are all entertaining hopes
of victory and have devised plans by
which they expect to finish on top.
Defending titles in single events will
be Captain Chuck Flachmann of Illi-
nois in the 50, 100,
and 220-yard free-
Taylor Drysdale in
the back - stroke,
and the Wolverine
sprint and medley
is looked upon to
win both the short-
er events with ease,
and should break Flachmann
his own 50-yard record, but the 220-
yard crown will undoubtedly pass
into the hands of either Tex Robert-
son of Frank Barnard of Michigan.
Adolph Jacobsmeyer of Iowa is also
a strong contender.
Drysdale is also a favorite in the
150-yard event, but should be forced
to break his own record of 1:41.6 to
win from Charlie Salie of Ohio State,
Dick Westerfield of Iowa, and his own
teammate, Fred Cody.I
The Wolverine medley relay trio
of Jack Kasley, Drysdale and Ogden
Dalrymple, present holder of the
world record in the 300-yard event,
should enable Michigan to keep one
relay title, but Illinois is favored over
Coach Matt Mann's sprint relay quar-
One of the best exhibitions of the
evening will see Der Johnston, Ben
Grady, Frank Fehsenfeld, and Ned
Diefendorf of Michigan battle with
Bill Busby of Iowa and Earl Jansen,
of Illinois. The dual meet records of
all these men have been erratic, and
the outcome of tomorrow night's final
is a toss-up.
Arm Injury Will Not
Keep Javelin Star Out
It was announced late yesterday
that an arm injry to Edward
Adam Stone, Varsity javelin
thrower, was not serious and would
not keep him from competition.
Stone, who earned his letter last
year on the basis of performances
which were topped by a throw of
over 183 feet at the Drake Re-
lays, received a recurrence of an
old arm injury last week which
it was feared would keep him out
for the season.

Wins Five Out
Of Six Races
Sensation Reaches New
High At Tropical Park
TROPICAL PARK, Fla., March 16.
- UP) -Jockey Wayne Wright, the
eighteen-year-old riding sensation
from Rexburg, Id., reached a new
high here today when he rode, five
winners in the six trips to the barrier.
The quiet-mannered, blond young-
ster who is under contract to J. E.
Widener missed only with Lookabout,
which was third in the second race.
He started out in the very first race
by scoring with De Valera, which
paid $8.10 and after placing third
with Lookabout came back to sweep
the card from the fourth race on.
Wright won the fourth race on
Jadaan at $5 for $2, scored with
Golden Way, a $6.10 shot in the fifth,
and brought a long shot, Mintana,
which paid $22.50, under the wire in
the sixth. He closed the day with a
triumph on Dancing Boy in the sev-
enth race. Dancing Boy paid $7.50
Wright, who led the rival leaders at
Pimlico, Bowie, Tropical and Hialeal
in successive meetings, now appears
assured of making it five in a row
in his remarkable conquests at the
various tracks. He scored five triples
at Hialeah Park and the public is
now so confident of his exceptional
ability that it bets his mounts re-
gardless of form.
Wright's triumphs made it a fa-
vorite's day and he made it four fa-
vorites in a row when he brought Mrs.

OVER the theater star's dressing table there is a magic
circle of light that mercilessly reveals every flaw in
make-up. The amount of light used is eloquent testi-
mony to the need of plenty of light for a critical seeing
task such as this. Your vanity table, too, requires a def-
inite amount of light- just as there is a definite amount
needed for reading, writing, sewing and other visual
tasks. You can apply four simple rules to your home
lighting that will assure good general quality of illu-
mination throughout the house: (1) Use SHADES on all
lamp bulbs to prevent GLARE. (2) Use shades with
light-colored linings to get the most light. Wide shades,
open at the top, are best. (3) Use correct-size lamp bulbs
-"'WATTS". In table and floor lamps with 3 sockets,
use 40 watts in each socket; two sockets, 60 watts; one
socket, 100 watts. (4) Have at least one-tenth as much
light in the rest of the room as you have on your book,
newspaper, sewing, etc. .
