THE M_ ICHIGA N DAILY
Varsity Tankers Await Heavy Schedule
Squad Will Be
Strength To Be Found
In Distance Events
Although weakened in the sprints
by the graduation of Captain Ed Kir-
ar, the swimming forces of Coach
Matt Mann, National Intercollegiate
title-holders, are going to "be in
swell shape" when any championships
are being decided.
The departure of "Moose" Kirar,
50- and 100yard free-style champion
in both. Big Ten and Nationals for
- two years running, (meaning swim-
ming) cuts a large hole in the sprint
forces of the Mann men and the hole
was ruptured still further by the
present ineligibility of Long Walt
Tomski, who must overcome one E
before returning to the tank fold.
Sophomores Help ,
But this loss is far overshadowed
by the strength of the incoming
sophomores. Backstrokers Bill Beebe
and Chaley Barker, best of last year's
yearling crop, can also take their turn
swimming on their stomach and both,
can do so at a rapid rate.
It is in the longer events that Michi-
gan will wield the balance of power.
Here Captain-elect Tom Haynie, 220-
and 440- winner in the Big Ten two
years in a row, and the recipient of
the best college swimmer award in
America two years ago when only a
sophomore, and Ed Hutchins, a mem-
ber of the championship relay team,
will, be ably assisted by sophomores
Jimmy Welch and Art Ebling. The
heavy preponderance of material here
presages a pssible sweep of four
palaces inz the Big Ten Meet.
Breast Stroker Returns
Wolverine strength is carried over
into the breast stroke. Johnny Haigh,
who, as a sophomore last year, got
better every time he took the water
and finally finished third in the Big
Ten and fourth in the Nationals, will
be aided by another first year man,
Bob Newton. Newton, however, will
nat be available until the second sem-
In the diving, Michigan is surebto
be strong but the extent of that
strength will depend on how many of
last year's divers return' to school.
A sure pint winner, who should fin-
ish second only to the nation's num-
ber one diver Al Patnik, is Hal Ben-
ham. Benham, who was severely
handicapped last year by a broken
arm, but who finished third in the
nationals in spite of the loss of train-
ing incurred as a result of the casual-
ty, should be even better this winter.
Adolph Fernstenfeld and Jack Wolin,
both letter-winners last year, are as
yet undecided about returning to

man squad will be slight Tommy

In the nationals to which Mihi-
gan will play host on the last week-
end in March, the set-up should be
about the same. Harvard and Yale
will again be good but it'll be Michi-
gan and Ohio State at, the finish.
According to Matt Mann "we're the
defending champions and so we
should be the team to beat."
And as it has Bieen for the last
twelve years, the team.thathbeats
Michigan will be the champion. But
this year it's going to be awfully,
awfully tough to beat Michigan.

While track is considered a spring
sport at most schools, it is the prac-

planned for the yearlings, according

Swimmers To Face Yale's
Team In Dual Meet
The University of Michigan will
play host to the National Intercolle-
giate Swimming Championships on
the 24th and 25th of March, 1939.
Michigan is the deiendirg national
champion, having annexed the title at
Rutgers last year. In New Brunswick,
the outcome of the meet was not de-
cided until the last event, the 400-
yard relay, which the Wolverines won.
As a result of this victory and Har-
vard's nosing out of Ohio State for
second place, the Wolverines eked out
a 46-45 decision over the highly fav-
ored Buckeyes. Harvard finished third
with 36 points.
The meet this year should be just
as thrilling. With the Columbus squad
anxious to revenge what they are
wont to term a fluke victory and an
even stronger Wolverine tank team
eager to prove the reverse, the meet
should be, in the swing vernacular, a
The strength of Harvard and Yale
cannot safely be under-estimated.
Yale is tr'aditionally strong and Har-

This meet is a natural. For years
Yale was the stronghold of swimming
in the East. Year in and year out they
turned out strong squads under the
tutelage of Bob Kiphuth and at one'
time ran a consecutive victory streak
to over 150 meets.

Mann, has raised another swimming

It is in the Intramural Building Pool that on March 24 and 25, the

The annual Trueblood trophy con-

medal play golf championship, will
be run off on the week-ends of Oct.
8 and 15, according to Golf Coach
Ray O. Courtright.
The event, which is a 72 hole af-
fair, will be open to any undergradu-
ate on the campus except winners of
varsity golf letters and past winners
of the trophy. Jim Loar was last
years champion and then he pro-

Eighteen holes will be played on
Saturday, Oct. 8, another round the
following day with 36 holes finishing
out the total on the next week-end.
The trophy is donated by Profes-

former golf coach and head of the
Speech Department of the University,
which he organized in 1884. In 1901'
he fostered the first golf team in the
Big Ten and it was largely through
his efforts that, other schools fol -
lowed suit. Through his work in
this direction, he has often been
called "the father of collegiate golf
in the west."
The purpose of the tournament,
other than providing fun, recreation
and competition for the students, is
