Wins Wrestling Match

IOWA CITY, Feb. 25 (Special to
The Daily) -Swimming the "fast"
water of the University of Iowa pool,
the University of Michigan swim-
ming teamsmashed four National In-
tercollegiate records, and two pool
records to hand the Hawkeyes a 61
to 23 defeat here tonight.
The Wolverines won first places in
every one of the nine events on the
program and limited Iowa to only two
second places in the individual events.
Tomiski Wins Twice
Michigan also provided the meet
with its only double winner when
Walt Tomski came through with first
places in both the 50 and 100 yard free
style sprint events. He failed to set
new marks in either event, however.
The Wolverines started off the
record breaking chain of events by
smashing the existing world's mark
in the 300-yard free style relay dur-
ing the afternoon.
Capt. Tom Haynie, Walt Tomski,
Jim Welch and Ed Hutchens swam
the distance in 3:32.1 to better the
mark made by Yale in 1935. The
record, however, did not smash the
Anerican mark madd by Yale in 1936
of 3:24.3.
Haynie was at it again before the
meet got under way in the evening.
He swam the 300 yard individual med-
ley event in 3:43.9 to break the old
mark of 3:54.3 held by Walter Spence
of Rutgers. Haynie swam the bre~tt
stroke in 1:19.5, the back stroke 100
in 1:16.5, and the free style section
in 1:07.9.
Brandkamp Wins Record
Brandkamp, Iowa freshman, who
provided Haynie's competition in the
event also broke Spence's record
with a time of 3:52.6.
In the meet proper Michigan's 300
yard medley relay team of Beebe,
Haigh, and Holmes, went right to
work, breaking the existing National
Intercollegiate mark of 3:08.5 with a
3:06.7 performance. The old mark
was held by Iowa.
The record national mark to fall
before the onslaught of the Michigan
paddlers was the 200 yard breast
stroke mark of 2:38.2, held by Walter

Stubborn Ohio
Squad, 19 -13
Unbeaten Wolverines Win
Fifth In Row As Nichols
Brothers Score Falls
Paced by its invincible brother com-
bination, Capt. Harold and Don
Nichols, both of whom scored hard-
fought falls, Michigan's Big Ten
championship wrestling team downed
a dogged Ohio State array last night
before 1,500 excited fans at Yost
Field House, 19 to 13, for its fifth
straight triumph of the season.
The meet was the most hotly con-
tested of the current campaign for
the Wolverines, who were extended
to the utmost in every winning match.
Numerous injuries frequently halted
the proceedings, most notably when
Michigan's Forrest "Butch" Jordan
suffered a rib injury in his match
with the g1nt Buckeye eavyweight,
George Downes, and had to forfeit to
the latter for his first loss of the year,
and when Tony Montonaro of Ohio
State also required first-aid for an
ailing rib midway in his bout with
145-pounder Harold Nichols of the
Wolverines. Nick soon finished
Montonaro with a reverse double
armlock, after which Tony collapsed
in his corner and was not completely
revived for several minutes.
The Buckeyes proved that they
really meant business as they rushed
into a commanding 8 to 0 lead in the
first two matches. Bob Martin, pow-
erful little State 121-pounder, pre-
served his unbeaten record by piling
up a 13 to 2 lead on hard-working
Tom Weidig before pinning the latter
in 8:00 with a half nelson and body
