Coach Fritz Crisler is apparently
impatient with the lagging hours.
Although spring football practice
isn't, officially slated to begin until
tomorrow, the new coach and two of
his assistants, Earl Martineau and
Campbell Dickson, jumped the gun
yesterday and sent a small group of
candidates through a dummy scrim-
mage on Ferry Field.
Not even the chill blasts which
swept across the field daunted the
ambitious gridders and theit anxious
coaches. Shielding themselves at the
south end of Yost Field House, the
boys were exposed to the .new off en-
sive shift Michigan will feature this

By TOM PHARES
Put on your water wings, gents,
and lend an ear. You may claim to
be an authority on swimming records
etc., but a bit of deep digging into the
musty annals bring forth some feats
that make "'Tireless Tom" Haynie
look like a victim of anemia.
Some of these endurance swimmers
really go at it in a big way. "Take the
case of one Otto Kemmerich of Ber-
lin, Germany for example.
Outdoes Sea Lion
Back in 1928, when he didn't have
to swim on an empty stomach. Otto
figured he was so good that it was silly
to compete against any other swim-
mer so he ups and wagers that he
could swim around longer than a sea
lion, no less. His friends cooperated
by taking the bet and producing a
sea -lion. Both Otto and the seal
entered the pool attthe same time
and the latter was forced to keep on
swimming as long as he was able. He
collapsed after 42 consecutive hours
while Kemmerich stayed in for 46.

Three years later Fred Newton of
Clinton, Okla. felt the urge of the
wanderlust and swam the Mississippi
from Minneapolis to New Orleans just
for something to do. He covered the
2,300 miles in 742 hours of swimming,
and what's more, gained 10 pounds on
the trip necessitating a few reducing
exercises.
Cigar And All
Of course no list of swimming rec-
ords would be complete without at
least making a mental note of the
fact that Gus Sundstrom, aged 75,
while swimming instructor at the
New York A. C., frequently swam 225

e this astound-

By FRED CHARLTON
Day in and day out, there emanates
from the basement of the Union, the
sound of hard rubber striking wood,'
as campus men participate in the
most popular of indoor sports, bowl-
ing. According to L. H. "Butch"
Pollock, manager of the Union alleys,
the number of University men who
bowl regularly has increased two-+
fold since last year.
The 1932-33 season was the ebb
tide in Union bowling history, as in
that year, the average number of
lines rolled per day was only 270.
Since then the figure has gradually
increased, and today the alleys main-
tain a 500 daily line average.
Are Financial Success
Financially they are a success, as;
when the new alleys were opened,
Stan Waltz, general manager of the
Union, predicted that they would!
gross about $9,000 for the first year.>
But in view of the first few month'sI
showings, he has raised the ante toI
an estimated $11,000.;

Waltz gives credit to two factors
for lifting the Union alleys out of
their "bowling depression." The main
one, he claims was ithe organization
fof leagues and teams, which stimu-
lated competition and forwarded in-
terest in bowling.
Four Leagues Use Alleys
As the Union alleys now accommo-
date four leagues, compromising 34
teams, it is easy to see the effect
league bowling has had in raising the
popularity of the sports on this cam-
pus.
The second reason, Waltz points
out, is the recent national uplift of
bowling interest. Students who have
been fascinated by the game else-
where, continue to pursue the sport
at college, and thus the Union alleys
benefit.
All in all, the game is a fascinat-
ing one, and affords a means of
recreation for both men and women
students. and even though all bowl-
ers can't be top-notchers, it's good
evercise.

A limited nurmber of these cards have been placed around town.
Can you find one?
