the telling butterfly stroke in the
clutch and the energy-conserving or-
thodox stroke during the interim.
His time for the first 50 yards was
28.2 seconds, for 100 yards it was
1:03.5, he was at the 150 yard mark
in 1:41.4, and home in 2:22.0 for his
world's mark.
Higgins fought valiantly to finish
in 2:23.1, but observers agreed that
Hough still had something left at the
finish.
The 100yard free-style, a typically
tough field, found Paul Wolf of
Southern California finally reaching
the form that had been expected of
him in one of the most thrilling races
of the /tournament.
Getting- off to a beautiful start, the
Olympic sprinter was matched stroke
for stroke by "Good-Time" Charley
Barker, Michigan's nonchalant soph-
omore who won the 50 title Friday,
and thetwo finished in a dead heat
In 0:52.9.
Towski Is Fourth
In fourth place, chiefly due to his
ineptitude on the turns, was the
favorite, Walt Tomski of Michigan.
Bill Quayle of Ohio was third, and
Capt. Johnny Good of Yale, fifth.
% The 440 crown was won by Michi-
gan's Capt. Tom Haynie who won a
hairline decision over his sopho-
more teammate Jimmy Welsh in the
excellent time of 4:49.7. In third
place was Harold "Curly" Stanhope
of Ohio, in fourth a desperate Adolph
Kiefer, and fifth George Lowe of
Illinois.
Kiefer, whose entrance 'into the
free-style during the meet had
brought him nothing but trouble,
sought vainly to regain lost prestige
in the quarter.,
He flashed to an early lead and
held for the first 200 yards with
Welsh pressing him hard and Stan-
hope in third. Haynie, invariably
a strong finisher, held back in fourth
until the ninth lap'when he passed
the fading Kiefer to trail Welsh and
Stanhope in that order.
Haynie Takes LeadS
The thirteenth lap found Haynie
passing Stanhope, and Welsh still
leading by half a body. Then Haynie
put on his spurt. At 400 yards it was
Welsh, still by half a body, then Hay-
nie, and Stanhope and Kiefer out of
it. At 425 yards they were neck and
neck but with one final burst of
speed, Haynie won out in the last 15
yards. The closeness of the race can
be shown by the fact that Welsh's
time was only'one-tenth of a second
slower than the winner's.
The diving was the same old story
-Al Patnik in first, Earle Clarke in
second. Patnik, with 161.32 points,
held a wide margin over his team-
mate, who amassed 14964. Al bet-
tered his winning total of last year
by some 18 odd points.
A surprise third was Michigan's
Hal Benham with 133 points, three
more than Eastern Intercollegiate
Champion, Russ Greenhood of Har-
vard. Bill Brink of Texas was fifth
and Adie Ferstenfeld of Michigan,
sixth and out of the money.
Champions in the two-day tourna-
ment were :,
Harold Stanhope, Ohio State,
1500 meters.
Charles Barker, Michigan, 50
yard dash.
Albert Vande Weghe, Prince-
ton, 150 yard backstroke.

By ARNOLD DANA x
A long winter of diligent daily
practice on the wooden indoor courts.
at the IntramuralCBuilding is draw-
ing to a close for Coach Leroy Weir's
tennis players.
Despite the warm weather that has
already drawn the baseball team out-
side, the net squad will pot go out-
doors until they embark on their
second annual spring training trip
in two weeks. This will mark the
second year for Coach Weir as head
tennis mentor at Michigan. Last sea-
son, his team won 10 and lost 18 dual
meets, and wound up eighth in the
Conference championships held at
Chicago.
Weir Has Hopes
However, Coach Weir has much,
higher hopes for the team this year,
which hopes were voiced in his state-
ment, "We should show much im-
provement over last year, and if we
don't meet up with Chicago or North-
western in the early rounds of the
Conference meet, we should end up
much higher. However, in dual meets,
most of our difficulties will come
from the same two teams."
Returning this year are four let-
termen from last year's squad:' They
are Capt. Don Percival, Steve Wool-
sey, Ed Morris, and John Kidwell.
Percival played in number one spot
last year, Kidwell played in number
2 spot, and Kidwell and Woolsey al-
ternated between 5 and 6.
Several Freshmen
Added to this quartet of veterans
are several first year men from'whom
Coach Weir expects much. "If these
newcomers produce, our chances for,
a good seasonal showing goes up 100
per cent," said Coach Weir.
Leading the second year men at
present is Jim Tobin, from Highland
Park. Jim was, not working out with
the 'team during the winter, as he
spent the time cavorting around the
ice with the Michigan hockey team.
However, he reported for duty at the
close of the ice season, and since then
[as been going full blast. His only
White Sox Stage Rally
To Overcome Cubs, 8-7
LOS ANGELES, March 25.-(4P)-
The Chicago White Sox whipped
their city rivals, the National League
Cubs, 8 to 7 in an exhibition game
today by scoring six runs in the last
two innings and nipping a Cub rally
just in time.
The Sox, trailing 5 to 2 going into
the eighth, blasted Newel Kimball
from the mound and showed no
mercy for his successor, Al Epperly.

apparent weakness is his occasional
tendency towards wildness. This ten-
dency will probably be eradicated
within a few weeks after the team gets
outdoors.
Other sophomores who are out for
the squad are; Howarzi Bacon, Jim
Porter, Chet Phillipson, and Bud
Dober. Also on the team are two
transfer students, Sam Durst and
Bob Jeffries.
In the Big Ten iUhis year, Coach
Weir expects most competition from
Chicago and Northwestern. Chicago,
last year's Big Ten titlists, lost only
their number one man, and still have
the Murphy brothers, who were last
year rated tenth doubles team in the
country by the National Lawn Tennis
Association.

Paul Dean Gives Tire
Hits, But Yanks Win, 5-4
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 25.
-()--The New York Yankees nicked
come-backing Paul Dean for three
runs in the second inning today and
went on to defeat the -St. Louis Cardi-
nals, 5 to 4. Dean, making his first
start of the spring exhibition season,
gave up only three hits in four in-
nings, but they all came in the sec-
ond.
'Joe DiMaggio doubled, Lou Gehrig
singled. Then Joe Gordon brought
them both in with a homer. The other
two Yankee runs were scored off
Morton Cooper in the fifth. The
Cards made eleven hits off Steve
Sundra and Bump Hadley but could
not bunch them. Joe Medwick making
his first appearance in the St. Louis
lineup, went hitless.
