The Battle Is Off ...
THE BATTLE IS OFF. The much-
awaited duel between Michigan
and Harvard in the National Colle-
giate swimming . championships at.
Minneapolis thishweek-end will not
take place. It has been postponed
until the National A.A.U. meet at
Yale during spring vacation. Scho-
lastic restrictions will not allow Hal
Ulen to bring his conquerors of Yale
West for so long a period as the trip
requires. So now it's up .to Yale to
show us farmers what eastern swim-]
ming is like. And "Show them no
mercy" Bob Kiputh (former holder of
163 straight dual-meet victories) is1
sparing nothing in an effort to sub-;
jugate Michigan and Matt Mann. He
is bringing at least 13 men-maybe;
more. The Yale athletic authrities,
must have plenty of train fare to
waste. As swimming stooge Stew
Fitch puts it: "Yale is bringing plenty
of cannon-fodder, but Michigan will
be the big gun.''
Put Up, Or,.. .
fOKehrt Cochrane, sports editor of
the Indiana Daily Student: It may
be a good idea, colleague, to instill
some fight into your track team before
its next meeting with Coach Charlie
Hoyt's men, but use a little more
finesse-in other words, don't be so
damned crude. Printing quoted state-
ments of libelous nature and attribut-
ing them to a source that did not
make them is a serious business. You
say you read in The Michigan Daily
following the Indiana-Michigan bas-
ketball game this statement: "In the
last few minutes of the game, with
Indiana leading, our men were de-
liberately fouled in order that In-
diana could gain control of the ball."
I have checked with Ray Goodman,
Daily basketball writer, and I hereby1
ask proof that you read this statement
in The Daily-or else retract your
statements in your "Press Box" col-
.mn. We read even The Indiana Daily
Student up here, you know.
