It will be two months before the
major league ball clubs make their
annual training trip to the lands of
sunshine and palm trees, but it is only
a matter of a week now before Mich-
igan's swim squad embarks in toto
for its holiday sojourn at Ft. Lauder-
Coach Matt Mann, Assistant Coach
Harvey Muller and a squad of a dozen
swimmers will make the trip. There
they will romp and swim with swim-
mers from colleges and universities
from all over the nation and will cu-
minate their visit with the heralded
East-West swim meet which Michigan
annually wins for the West.
