Swimmers Toj
Meet Buckeyes
At Columbus
Ohio State Natators Lack
Concentrated Strength;
Have Individual Stars
Woodford, A Sophomore,
Dangerous In . Distance
The Buckeyes of Ohio State, a
squad sprinkled with individual stars
but lacking concentrated t e a m
strength, will attempt to halt Mich-
igan's drive for an undefeated sea-
son when the Wolverine tankmen in-
vade Columbus Saturday night.
Coached by the veteran Mike Peppe,
the Ohioans have never been a power
in Conference swimming circles, win-
ning two seconds and a fourth place1
in the Big Ten meet last spring, but
the addition of several outstanding
performers from the freshman ranks
of last year should make them much
stronger this season. The Buckeyes
have defeated Cincinnati, Purdue, and
Pittsburgh to date.
Woodford Is Versatile
Dexter Woodford, sophomore dis-
tance man, heads the list of new
stars on the Buckeye roster. Compet-
ing unattached as a freshman, Wood-
ford finished a close second to Jack
Medica in the 500-yard free-style
event in the National A.A.U. senior
indoor championships.
The Ohio sophomore also won the
mile event and was second in the
half-mile in the junior outdoor cham-
pionships, and finished third and
fourth respectively in the 440-yard
and mile races in the senior outdoor
Rated close behind Woodford is
Baker Bryant, sophomore sprinter.
Bryant's times of :53.4 and 2:18.2 in
the 100-meter and 220-yard events in
the National A.A.U. senior indoor meet
were good enough to give him fifth
places in these races in very close
races. In the latter event, Bryant fin-
ished almost in a dead heat with Tay-
lor Drysdale, present co-captain of
the Wolverines.
Salie To Extend Drysdale
Charlie Salie is still another soph-
omore who should make it very un-
comfortable for Drysdale and Fred
Cody in the 150-yard backstroke.
Salie finished two feet behind Drys-
dale to take third place in the race
in which Al Vande Weghe established
a new world's record of 1:36.9 last
spring in the National A.A.U. meet.
Jim Williams and Ray Kessler
round out the list of new men who
are playing a promient part in Coach
Peppe's plans for a successful 1935
season. Both are sprinters, Kessler
defeating Frank Barnard and Jack
Kasley of the Wolverines to win the
220-yard free-style in the National
A.A.U. junior indoor championships
last March.
Kasley Is Favored
Captain George Colville and Russ
Kirbert are the Buckeyebreaststroke
hopes. Colville finished second in the
Conference meet last season, bu
should not extend Kasley Saturday
Supporting Salie in the backstroke
are George Riebel and letterman
Harry Volk. Woodford has the veteran
Dick Figley to help him in the dis-
The veterans Boyd Graham and
Fred Walton together with sophomore
Harry Kallman handle the diving.
Graham and Kallman placed in th
National A.A.U. junior indoor low-
board championships last spring.

Coach Ray Fisherbhas issued a
call for all Varsity baseball can-
didates to report in the Field
House any aftrenoon this week.
Upon reporting, the men ard to
sign up and list their last after-
noqp class to enable Coach Fisher
to draw up a batting practice
schedule. Batting practice will
begin in the cages next Monday,
March 4.

VORITE pastime of track experts
these days is figuring out what
stitute perfect times and distances
the various traditional track and
d events contested on collegiate,
U. and Olympic cards.
rutus Hamilton, coach at Califor -
started the fad when he issued
conclusions based upon the ulti-
e in track and field records pub-E
ed in the February issue of the
ateur Athlete, official organ of the
.A.U. The real basis for all com-
ations of this sort has been the
res arrived at by Finnish statis-
ans and physicists who compiled
new decathlon scoring table to be
d in the 1936 Olympics. The new
ndards were drawn up through'
of energy, expectancy, and fa-
e graphs and application of
hematical laws dealing with
siological compensation. The idea,
we see, is to imagine the best- I

start quickly, and have speed enough
for a 9.4 second hundred, and the
nth degree of balance, coordination
and endurance. Such a man, Doherty
said, could do all sorts of unpredict-
able things with existing records for
the pole vault, hurdles, sprints, and
middle distances and would be no
slouch in the other jumps, weight
events, and distances.
Anyone enumerating the unknown
factors can readily see that any "per-
fect" times or distances are ludicrous'
in the face of past achievements. Our
track stars of today are highly-spe-
cialized machines which appear to be
near-perfect, but a eugenically bred
super-star may be just around the
Another possibility is that the men
best equipped to set track marks are
not competing today. Most of our
athletes are drawn from the members
of the middle and upper classes who

NEW YORK, Feb. 27. -Dizzy
D:an, slokanan for the celebrated
pitching brothers, already has sound-
ed the only jarring note in the other-
wise universal National League wel-
comie to the fo mcr home run mon-
airch. Dizzy's blunt resentment, voiced
last night, took the form of sympathy
for McKechnie, criticism of the Amer-
ican League for letting the Babe go

the fact that a 20.4 seconds 200 is
comparatively faster than a 9.4 hun-
dred. It, as the last column shows, is
equivalent to running the hundred in
In 1884, however, it is apparent
that runners hadn't sufficient endur-
ance to run the full 220 at top speed.
While they could run the hundred in
10 seconds they couldn't maintain
that pace for 220 yards, even with
the minimizing effect the longer dis-
tance has on time lost at the start.
If,''then, it is logical to believe that
the limit of speed-endurance has been
raised from something under 220
yards to 300 yards, there is no ap-
parent reason by there shouldn't ap-
pear some day a sprinter with stam-
ina enough to sprint 440 yards at
100-yard speed, who will set a record
close to 41 seconds. Who will deny
