Upsets Mark First Half Of National Swimming Meet

For three years I've heard Matt
Mann's wail about the size of the
Michigan pool facilities, but last night
for the first time, the hopeless in-
adequacy of the natatorium was ap-
parent . . . The spectators were vir-
tually hanging from the rafters, and
the press box was so crowded that
the boys had to inhale and exhale
simultaneously . . . And the tem-
perature was about right for a three-
minute egg . . . Adolph Kiefer, the
meet's big disappointment so far,
claims he's not out of condition ...
After the 220 yard dash, in which he
finished fourth, Kiefer told his team-
mates: "I sprinted, and then they'd
sprint. So I'd sprint some more, and
they'd sprint some more. I saved a
little for the finish, and they did
too." . . In other words, Adolph is
finding this free-style league a bit
tough, but he deserves credit as one
of America's finest swimmers of the
Acosta, Florida free - styler
jumped, the gun three times dur-
ing the meet but only hit the
water twice . . . In the prelims
he took advantage of his end lane
to catch hold of the pool ladder
and hurdle across the watery
abyss to the side .... Counters in,
the long distance races are not
permitted to coach, and referee
Bob Kiphuth had occasion to
warn several of the aide-de-
camps, along with a few of the
more illustrious coaches . . . Or-
chids to Adie Ferstenfeld who
wound up fifth in the diving de-
spite the tremendous handicap of
following Al Patnik to the board
.. . Matt Mann lost his shirt af-
ter the 1500 meter swim in the
morning but claimed it should
have been his pants . . . Did
Mike Peppe plan the coup or
was the Stanhope victory some-
thing unforseen? '.. . Bill Reed
had the gang laughing with his
remark to a diving referee; who
was about to flash his card:
"C'mon, give the kid a break.
He's working his way through
school" ... The athletic depart-
ment was well represented with
Munn, Martineau, Dickson, Oos-
terbaan, Keen, and Hoyt visible
in the crowd ... And the Haynie
and Welsh clan were sitting in
the choice seats cheering on their
offsprings . . . There were seven
judges in the diving.
INTRIGUE: Thursday night around
11:30 p.m. the Union taproom re-
sembled Kelley's pool hall . . . The
coaches had just left a three and
one-quarter hour session of drawing
for heats and they sought refresh-
ments below . . . Dividing up into
small groups, they sat around the
tables with their heads together,
speaking in undertones, planning
some strange strategy . . . Those iin
the know claim that the Columbus
A.A.U. meet next week will take sec-
ond honors to the coaches' meeting
during the meet . . . This observer
learns that there is ample fireworks
in store with a certain coach and his
prize product of the middle . . . In
the medley relay, Bill Beebe went out
in 27.5 for the 50 and was ahead of
Collegiate champion Al Vande Weghe
until he hit a bad turn at the half
way mark. He was timed in 60.8 for
the hundred . . . Stanhope turned
over on his back for the medley and
said after the race "I was awfully
tired." . .. Patnik interpolated "any-
one who swims so long so fast de-
serves to be tired." . .. Tom Haynie,
without ever having seen Billy Quayle
in the 220, said "I knew that guy
would be up there . . . He always
is." . .. Quayle said after the event
to Mike Peppe, "What happened the
last two lengths? I didn't see a

row margin in the relatively slow time
of 0:23.5. Tomski in the afternoon
equalled the N.C.A.A. mark of 0:23
held by aCharles Flachmann of Illi-
nois and Ed Kirar of Michigan, but
he slipped in the evening to lose his
title to his sophomore mate.
The Wolverines picked up 10 more
points in the 220-yard swim when
Capt. Tom Haynie won a thrilling
race over the toughest field of the
day when he put on one of his tradi-
tional sprints to splash home ahead
of Ohio State's Bill Quayle, a sur-
prise second, teammate Welsh, who
led during the early stages, the fading
Kiefer, and another Wolverine, Ed
Hutchens, who slipped in fifth. The
time, 2:11.7, was three-tenths of a
second off Haynie's pool mark set
in 1936.
Tigers Set New Mark
The only new record was set by
Princeton's superb medley relay team
of Albert Vande Weghe, who also
successfully defended his backstroke

crown, the incomparable Capt. Rich-
ard Hough, and free-styler Ned Parke.
The Tiger trio, led by Hough who'
swam a brilliant breaststroke lap, was
far ahead of Ohio State and Michi-
gan in record breaking time of 2:545.
The old N.CA.A. mark of 2:54.7 was
also held by Princeton with Henry
Van Oss following Vande Weghe and
Hough in place of Parke.
The same three men also broke a
pool record in the qualifying round
when their 2:54.8 succeeded the old
mark of Stanhope, Higgins, and
Quayle of Ohio, 2:57.4, set in 1939.
Vande Weghe Breezes
Vande Weghe had little difficulty
defending his dorsal crown when he
thrashed home in 1:35.1 to crack
Stanhope's pool record of 1:38.3. Bill
Beebe, who had barely qualified, was
a fighting second to boost Michi-
gan's total with four more surprise
points. Vande Weghe, like Tomski,
found the qualifying round more to
his liking, breezing home in 1:34.8,
a new pool mark.
The one meter diving wound up as
had been expected with Al Patnik,
the finest amateur diver in the coun-
try, sweeping the field with 147.61
points. Michigan's Hal Benham, in
one of his best performances of the
year, just barely missed a second place
when he bowed to Buckeye Earl Clarke
by .55 of a point. Adie Ferstenfeld
of Michigan was fifth.
As had been expected, the meet
now narrows down to Ohio State and
Michigan. The Wolverines must be
favored, but Ohio is definitely in the
running. Said Coach Pppe after
the meet:
"I'm conceding nothing. We have
a gambler's chance. The final result
may narrow down to the free-style
relay event, and don't count Ohio
And replied Matt Mann of Michi-

"Things look better than they did
this morning. It'll be close but we'll
be around when the prizes are award-

Goes Outdoors
Trosko Gets Four Hits As
Regulars Top Reserves '
An 80-degree sun sent the 1939 edi-!
tion of the Michigan baseball team
outside for the first time yesterday,
and they promptly engaged in a 1012
inning ball game.
Freddie Trosko was the day's top
slugger, as he pounded out two
singles, a double, and a triple in six
times at bat. He also walked once.
With "One Man Gang" Evashevski
on first in place of Elmer Gedeon who
will run tonight in Chicago, the regu-
lars started out at a fast pace. Charley
O'Brien turned back the yannigans
with one hit in the first five innings.
Meanwhile, his mates opened up on
Ralph Bittinger for three triples, two
doubles, and several singles which,
combined with walks and errors, net-
ted them six runs.
Dan Smick came in for the yanni-
gans in the sixth, and after a poor
start caused by several errors by his
teammates, settled down and held the
regulars to three hits in his last four
innings. In the eighth Capt. Peck-
inpaugh's second hit, a triple, drove
in two runs, and Peck tallied the final
run on Trosko's single.
"Lefty" Randall took over for the
regulars in the sixth, and although he
tired in the ninth to give the subs
their two runs, he managed to stag-
ger through the final inning without
any damage.,

inning after he had walked four men,
rmade a wild pitch, and was nicked
for four hits and three runs.
