Michigan Swimmers


(Daly Sport Editor)
Why It Is...
HAVE BEEN ASKED by several
during the past two days why Tom
Haynie and not Ed Kirar was ad-
judged the outstanding college swim-
mer of the year. Kirar won two
first places and swam on two win-
ning relay teams' in the Collegiates
last week-end to score 17 and five-
sixths points, while Haynie copped
two events and swam on the sprint
relay team to pile up 14 and one-
half points. Haynie was awarded
the trophy because his record
throughout the whole year was bet-
ter. Both are double Big Ten cham-
pions, but Haynie last summer won
the National A.A.U. 220-yard free-
style championship. He made the
Olympic team but was left off the
boat at the last minute because of
a little matter of the swimming com-
mittee being a bit in arrears as to
finances.. Kirar has no American
records in the books, while Haynie is
American (and world) record holder
in the 300-meter and 150-yard in-
dividual medley swims and over the
250-yard free-style distance. How-
ever, I look to Kirar to take the honor
next season when he breaks Johnny
Weismuller's 100-yard free-style rec-
ord of 51 seconds. Of course, there
is Charlie Hutter of Harvard to con-
tend with. Hutter, only a junior,
swam the 100 in 52 flat and the 220
in 2:10.8 in beating Yale, and really
gave Haynie the closest run for the
"outstanding" performer of the year.
But Tom's ability to swim the quar-
ter as well as the above two events
and his prowess in the individual
medley cinched the honor for the
Michigan sophomore.

Hatt Takes A Bath.. ..
COACH MATT MANN took an in-
voluntary bath in Minnesota's
pool at the hands of his victorious
squad Saturday night-fully clothed.
The Wolverine swimmers heard an
ugly rumor that memrpers of other
Big Ten teams were planning to
throw Matt in the pool, and accord-
ingly warned him to remove his
watches from his person. But when
the meet was over the ominous group
that surrounded the Michigan coach
turned out to be his own team. "Have
you your watches on, Coachie," back-
stroker Fred Cody grinned. "No," re-
plied Matt. Then- whoosh --and
Matt was headed for the water,
carrying diver Ben Grady with him.
He swam out grinning.

Jim Patterson when he finished
ahead of the Ohio State diver in the
preliminaries of the Big Ten cham-
pionship event. And Benny was de-
terminedly confident, too. But the
finals turned out differently and Pat-
terson won again. Ben felt pretty
badly about that, but he didn't say
much. He didn't say much when Jim
took the Collegiate low-board crown
Friday night. The Yonkers,, N. Y.
senior who aspires to be a secondary-
school administrator did his talking
off his favorite high board Saturday
night and brought home his first in-
tercollegiate championship. Hot po-

down to defeat again today as the
Boston Bees took a 4 to 2 decision in

an exhibition baseball game here.
Jim Turner, late of the American

mound for the Bees, won the ball
game in the last of the eighth with
a homer, with one man on.

Coach Matt Mann's Varsity swim-
ming team will meet Yale in two home
and home meets in 1938 and 1939, it
was announced yesterday. Tentative
dates have been set for Feb. 12, 1938
in the Yale Pool at New Haven, and
Feb. 11, 1939 for the Intramural Pool
here. W
The scheduling of the pair of meets
came after years of insistent pleas to
Yale athletic authorities by Coach
Matt Mann and Athletic Director
Fielding H. Yost and unofficial ti-
rades at the Eli by The Daily and
other newspapers of the Detroit area.
Yale Has 15-Year Streak
Contrary to published reports, Yale
had reached an agreement with Di-
rector Yost before its string of 163
consecutive dual-meet victories was
ended by Harvard on March 13 in
The winning streak of Coach Bob
Kiputh's team extended through 15
seasons and included a 44-19 victory
over Michigan during the 1929-30
season. Only on this occasion have
the two teams met.

Mann will lose four stars from this
year's squad in Co-Captains Jack
Kasley and Frank Barnard, Fred

the outstanding collection of fresh-
men who will be eligible next season

Seven Sports
Listed On I-M

Intramural spring outdoor sports
program will get under way. Frater-
nity, Independent, and All-Campus

horseshoes, archery, Sigma Delta Psi,

Looking 'Em Over
There's always something wrong
with even the best pitchers . . . Just'
when Burt Smith was beginning to
stack up as a certainty for one of
the starting hurling jobs, the boys in
the batting cages found out that he
is "giving away" his pitches
Burt holds his fingers in different po-
sitions on his fast ball and half
speeder' and by watching him closely
you can call the pitch as he is wind-
ing up . . The fault isn't as serious
as it might seem, however, because
by the time the season starts Coach
Ray Fisher will have taught him how
to disguise the different pitches.
It looked like old home week
Saturday down at the Field
House . . . Johnny Gee was
throwing them over the plate
while Fred Asbeck, alumnus and
former major league hurler, and
Whitey Wistert took their turns
at bat with the rest of the squad
. . . Whitey, you know, played
with Nashville in the Southern
Association last year and batted
over .380 for the season . . . He
really pasted a couple of the
pitches but portsider Gee crossed
him up on his last trip to the
plate ... Whitey is now the prop-
erty of Columbus but has decided
to continue his law studies here
and forego baseball at least un-
til June.
Danny Smick, who followed his
first base rival Bill Lane in batting
practice yesterday, caught one of Al
August's pitches on the nose and
sent it back on a line at the freshman
hurler . Al turned his head and
ducked instinctively and the ball
caught him in the middle of the back,
