In Coach'sRanking
Fresh from the National A.A.U. In-
door Championships, where he acted
in the capacity of timer, Coach Matt
Mann yesterday named the swimmers
he considers the best prospects at the
present time for positions on the
American team to compete in the
Olympic Games at Berlin next Au-
In rating the country's swimmers
on his All-American check list, Coach
Mann named Jack Kasley of the Wol-
verine Varsity as number one breast-
stroker, and Dick Degener, twice Na-
tional Collegiate champion from
Michigan, as the leading diver.
Capt. Frank Fehsenfeld of the Var-
sity, ex-captain Jim Christy, Taylor
Drysdale and freshman Tom Haynie
are other performers Coach Mann has
coached or is coaching now who are
included on the list of 31 swimmers
and divers.
American Victory Predicted
The choosing of the leading Amer-
icans in each of the six swimming
and two diving events follows Coach
Mann's prediction made earlier this
year that the Japanese would not re-
peat their 1932 win over the United
States at Berlin next summer. The
veteran coach who has brought seven
National Collegiate titles in ten years
to Michigan believes that the Amer-
ican swimmers are every bit as good
as the Japanese and the vastly su-
perior divers of this country will pro-
vide the winning margin.
The American Olympic team will be
composed of three men for every
event, with no limit on the number
of events for which one man may
Peter Fick, young star from the New
York A.C. who last week swam the
fastest competitive 100-yard free-style
in history in 51 seconds flat, is picked
by Coach Mann as America's best
chance to whip the Japanese in the
100-meter free-style. Fick turned the
trick last summer at Tokyo.1
Ray Walters Namedl
Following Fick in order as prospects
for the remaining two positions on
the American team are Paul Wolfe ofr
the Hollywood A.C.; Art Highland,
former Northwestern star and now
on the Lake Shore team of Chicago;t
Matt Chrostowski of the Olneyvillel
Boys Club of Providence; Chuck
Flachman, former National Collegiate
champion from Illinois and now also
of the Lake Shore A.C.; Ray Walters,
Big Ten champion from Iowa; and
Jimmy Gilhula of the University of
Southern California and the Detroit
Supplementing the usual 200-metert
free-style, the Olympic Games callr
for a four-man 800-meter relay. Jack
Medica, the Washington husky who
won nine Collegiatehchompionships
in three years, makes his first appear-
ance on the list as number-one man
in this event.
Medica is followed in order by Fick;
Ralph Flanagan, 18-year old Miami
star; John Macionis, Yale sophomore;l
Gilhula; Haynie; Art Lindegren of
the Los Angeles A.C.; and Chuck Wil-
son of the University of Chicago
Medica Again Named1
In the 400-meter free-style Medicat
again heads the list, with Flanagant
second. Rating so close to each other
as to defy being rated in order for,
the next four positions are Gilhula,E
Haynie, Macionis, and Ralph Gilmant
of the Ohio State freshman squad.
Medica leads the parade for the,

third time in the 1500, with Flan-
agan again second. Gilman is third
this time, followed by Norris Hoyt
of Yale and Jim Christy, Michigan;
captain in 1934 and first white man
to finish in this event in the 1932
games at Los Angeles. Coach Mann
saw Christy swim in Chicago last week
and believes the third-place winner
of the last Olympics will be in fine
shape for the American tryouts next
Kasley, with his performance of
2:37.2, is placed at the top among the
200-meter breast-stroke men. Johnny
Higgins of the Olneyville Boys Club,
America's best before Kasley stepped
in, is ranked second, with big Ray
Kaye of the Detroit A.C. third. Coach
Mann believes that no other breast-
stroke swimmer in the United States
will threaten this trig.
Kiefer Best Bask-Stroker
Adolph Kiefer, 17-year old Chicago
high school student, is easily the lead-
ing candidate for the 100-meter back-
stroke, and will undoubtedly lead the
way in Berlin.
Behind Kiefer Coach Mann ranks
in order George Kojac, old Rutgers
star and establisher of the present
Olympic record in the 1928 games at
Amsterdam (if he decides to swim);

Big Ten Nines
Look To Hard
Fought Season
Ohio State, Minnesota And
Illinois Are Only Squadst
To Have Seen Action 1
With the opening of the conference
schedule scarcely two weeks away,
Big Ten baseball nines are now busy
preparing for what promises to be1
one of the hardest fought races in
years. On the basis of pre-season+
games thus far, no one team can be
ranked as a distinct favorite.1
Thus far only Ohio State, Minne-
sota and Illinois have seen any ac-1
tion. All three have shown latentI
power, though none of them have
shown any indication that they ex-

above their rivals.1

Ohio State, last year's runner-up,

youngsters, who have looked good in

Tippy Dye, lone returning letter-
man, has been shifted from short-
stop to second and has performed
capably. Jack Peters, brilliant right
handed hurler, who was kept out of
most of last season's games by in-
juries, is back, and is showing his old
time form.
Team Weak At Bat
Illinois has gone through a series
of preliminary games with small Il-
linois colleges with indifferent suc-
cess. Hale Swanson and Howie Berg,
the Illini hurling aces, bid well to
rank among the best in the confer-
ence, but the team has been woe-
fully weak at bat thus far.
Wisconsin and Iowa were forced
to postpone their early games be-
cause of cold weather, and conse-
quently are not set for the Confer-
ence season as yet. Coach Poser of
Wisconsin is pinning his hopes on his
pitching staff, which is headed by
Gordy O'Brien, "Specs" Pearson, and
Bob Neubauer.

open their training schedules until

This, Fisher believes, explains his
present trouble. In baseball the hit-

overcomes this tendency he should
become an excellent hitter.
Big John Jablonski at present looks

Michigan is concerned. Possessing
a world of power in his shoulders and
arms, he drives pitches into the out-
field on a line and will probably be
the cause of many a worry for oppos-
