In The Majors
By ARNIE DANA
During the .winter months, he can
be found at the nearest ice hockey
rink. During the spring and summer
months, he can be found at the near-
est tennis court. Throughout the en-
tire year, except when he is engaged
in playing hockey or tennis, he can
be found curled up in a chair reading
The man in question, is sophomore
Jim Tobin of Highland Park, and the
reason for the variety of places at
which he may be located is that he
is regular left wing on the second
line of the Wolverine varsity hockey
team, number one singles player on
this year's tennis team, and is major-
ing in English, with the ambition to
be a professor in said field.
From the time he was thirteen
years old, when he won the High-
land Park Junior singles champioin-
ship, Jim has been adding title after
title to his collection. While at High-
land Park High School, he won the
Detroit city singles crown and the
Detroit city junior singles title three
years in succession. In doubles com-
petition, he paired up with Elmer
Swetina, now at Wayne University,
to win the Detroit Park Champion-
During the winter months, Jim
turned his interest towards ice hoc-
key, and soon found a berth for him-
self at left wing. During the last two
years of his high school career, he
was named on both the Detroit Free
Press and Detroit News all-city teams.
Explains Fas t
With the same "drang" that has
characterized Hitler's political coups
d'etat, swimmers have been smash-
ing records with reckless abandon.
The marks of a decade or so ago,
when Michigan used the Union pool,
have been altered as much as the face
of Europe. Only Buck Samson's 23
second 50 yard free style time is able
to compare with present Big Ten
Are the boys getting bigger and
stronger like the Nazi state, or is
there some other reason? Matt
Mann, Michigan's Varsity coach,
thinks, "It's all a matter of mental
attitude-of thinking faster times-
that makes the boys better. Of
course, the conditioning is better, but
it's mostly mental attitude."
Did he mean that Tom Haynie's
time was almost 19 seconds faster
than Samson's 1927 mark of 5:12 for
the 440 yard free style just because
he thought of swimming faster? Yes,
he certainly did! "Look 'at Jimmy
Welsh out there-he pointed at the
220-yard Conference champ-Jimmy
is always thinking about doing 2:10.
Ten years ago, boys used to dream
about doing 2:30.
"Why," Matt continued, "my fath-
er used to tell me 50 years ago that
water was water, and the times just
can't get any better,' but the record
for the hundred was 1:08 then, and
now it's 51 seconds."
Still, it seemed a little too much to
think that mental attitude could do
that much, but Capt. Tom Haynie,
without knowing what Mann had
said, offered the same explanation, in
the same two words-mental atti-
The Free Press made him honorary
captain in his senior year.
Besides excelling in athletics, Tobin
was an honor student and gained
membership into the National Hon-
orary Society. In his final year, he
was elected president by his class-
Entering Michigan a year ago last
fall, Jim, went out for hockey and
tennis and won his freshman numer-
als -in both. This past winter, he
reported to.Coach Eddie Lowrey of
the hockey team, and soon earned
a berth for himself on the second
As soon as hockey was over, he
went out for tennis, and before long
he worked his way into number one
spot, which place he now holds. On
the past southern trip, he faced some
of the top notch collegiate netmen
in the country and came out even,
with three wins and three losses.
