N3, (IN REPLY to numerous quer- But 220 yards is a long ways for

is not a "sure thing" in the National
A.A.U. Championships to be held next I
week-end in Yale's pool. Coach Matt
Mann's Wolverines have been in-
stalled as co-favorites with the Lake
Shore A.C. of Chicago and probably
hold a slight edge over their Club
rivals, but innumerable "ifs" make
the outcome of the meet strictly a
tossup until the last event has been
swum next Saturday night. Inciden-
tally, no college team ever has won
the A.A.U. Championships.
The first factor working against
Michigan's chances is the unique
scoring system employed by the
A.A.U. The use of only three scoring
places, counting 5-3-1 in the indivi-
dual events and 10-6-2 in the pair of
relays, will remove much of the ad-
vantage the Wolverines possess in
almost perfect balance. Lake Shore
A. C., with Adolph Kiefer, diver Al
Greene and a medley relay team, is
the potential equal of a large Mich-
igan squad.
Much cudgeling of my cerebral re-
gions has resulted in prognostications
that give Michigan a 32-28 advantage
over Lake Shore, but there are enough
"ifs" and "buts" involved to make
the proverbial limb look like the
slimmest of twigs. At any rate, if I'm
right, I can brag about it for months;
if I'm wrong, people will forget it in
a couple of weeks, I hope.
NEXT THURSDAY'S opening pro-
gram includes four events: the
100=-yard free-style, the 150-yard
back-stroke, the 300-yard individual
medley swim and the low-board div-
In the 100 I have given Michigan's
Ed Kirar three points for a second,
with Peter Fick and "Old Man"
Spence of the New York A. C. battling
with Charlie Hutter of Harvard and
Walt Tomski of Michigan for the
other two places.
The Lake Shore crew breaks into
the scoring to the tune of five points
for a first fin the back-stroke for
"Sonny Boy" Kiefer, but I say Taylor
Drysdale, formerly of Michigan, and
Al Vande Weghe of the Princeton
frosh will take enough out of Kiefer
to prevent his winning the individual
medley. John Higgins,. Ohio State
freshman, will take the medley with
Kiefer collecting three counters for
Then comes the low-board diving
where the Lake Shore will probably
pick up five more points via Al
Greene-unless Al Patnik of the Ohio
State freshmen and Elbert Root of
the Detroit A.C. are working for
AND THE END of the first night's
events finds Michigan trailing
Lake Shore, 13 to 3; but better days
are coming. Friday brings the 220
Free-style, the 220-yard breast-stroke
ind the 400-yard free-style relay.
We'll give Tommie Haynie a rather
partisan first in the 220 in his first
meeting this season with Charlie
Hutter of Harvard and the Olympic
seam. Fick and Spence of the New
York A. C. might try to mess things
up, but that would tire them for the
relay. Anyway, give Haynie and
Michigan five points. But beware of
Kiefer of Lake Shore here, too.
John Higgins consistently has
beaten Michigan's Jack Kasley, and
Kasley usually trims Ray Kaye, so
we'll give the Wolverines a second
and three points in the breast-stroke.
Bad Weather
Sends Varsity
Nine Indoors
With the diamond a sea of mud
and the Field House so dark that the
batters could not see the ball well
enough to go through batting prac-
tice, yesterday Coach Ray Fisher was
forced to put his squad through a
workout on bunting and base run-

The Field House floor was con-
verted into an infield and with Chuck
McHugh, whose arm is coming along
in good style, pitching and Herb
Reader catching, the Varsity went
into the drill with a good deal of en-
Coaches Fisher and Oosterbaan
centered most of their attention on
the perfecting of Bill Lane's hand-
ling, of runners at first base. Don
Brewer was working at second and he
and Bill teamed up several times to

the plate and Burt Smith and Johnny
Smithers took a turn at pitching.

world's record, and Kaye, the Detroit
A.C. warhorse, has at last learned to
fly; so maybe Michigan will have to
be content with a third. Yet, on the,
other hand, Kasley is about due for
a win over Higgins-the boy who al-
ways beats Jack in times much worse
than the Michigan captain's average.
- * * *
H AYNIE will be tired from the 220,
but Michigan's quartet of Ed
Kirar, Walt Tomski, Bob Mowerson
and Haynie is still good for a first
unless the New York A.C. brings in{
a ringer in place of the weak fourth
man supporting Spence, Fick and
Chrostowski. Ten points for a first
this time.
So two thirds of the way through
the meet Michigan is leading Lake
Shore, 21 to 13.
Saturday night's medley relay is
a problem. Lake Shore has picked up
Gus Horschke of Northwestern and
Jay Brown of Chicago to support Kie-
fer. Kiefer should swim 100 yards
on his back in 58 seconds to 62 sec-
onds for Fred Cody of Michigan.
Kasley, however, will fly his leg in
62 seconds against 64.5 for Horschke.
So we come into the anchor free-style.

second advantage over the Wolver-

BROWN is good for about 53 sec-
onds, so that means Kirar or
Vlowerson will have to do around 51.5
to win for Michigan. Kirar has done
better with a flying start, but we'll
stay on the safe side and give Lake
Shore 10 points and Michigan six.
But don't count Harvard out.
Unless something drastic happens,
Haynie will bring Matt Mann five

"My throat's grateful for Luckies

"In one of the first important parts I
did in America, the play called for a
long and very trying individual perform,
ance. In every scene for five full acts I
was on stage talking almost continuo
ously. The strain made it imperative that
I safeguard my throat and voice. After
trying different brands of cigarettes, I
came across Luckies. They stood the test

them. I like the taste of Luckies and my
throat is grateful for a light smoke."

An independent survey was made recently
among professional men and women-lawyers,
doctors, lecturers, scientists, etc. Of those who
said they smoke cigarettes, more than 87% stated
they personally prefer a light smoke.
Mr. Merivale verifies the wisdom of this pref-
erence, and so do other leading artists of the
radio, stage, screen and opera. Their, voices are
their fortunes. That's why so many of them
smoke Luckies. You, too, can have the throat pro-
tection of Luckies-a light smoke, free of certain
harsh irritants removed by the exclusive process
"It's Toasted". Luckies are gentle on the throat.
