PROTECTED by a pair of guaran-
teed water wings, ear plugs, a
snug bathing cap, and a prayer I
paid Matt Mann a visit at 11 a.m.
Obviously I was epeeting a stormy.
session. Memories of the sports editor
of the Daily Iowan and his flight toj
the practice field mud, with Hawkeye
gridders on the tossing end, kept run-
ning through my mind. As I entered,
the immaculate Intramural Pool
stared me in the face. It looked wet.
Matt Mann had every right to
be annoyed. Sunday morning your
chronicler wrote a piece on the
"winter roundup." There was
track, basketball, hockey, wrest-
ling-but no swimming. It hadn't
been mentioned even once.
Reason - long column, short
space, ill-advised deletion by
junior night editor.
Don't ask me why the night editor
sliced the swimmers out of the pic-
ture. I don't know. It might be com-t
pared to a round-up of the American:
League,.sans the Yankees, or a sum-
mary of Big Ten football, minus
Coach Mann had said a good deal
over the phone Sunday morning. I
expected the climax at 11 yesterday.
I was prepared'.
We had a lovely chat about football,
the wonderful job Fritz Crisler had
done, the pressing: need for Board
jobs; and other subjects of a non-
natatorial nature. And how will the.
swimmers be?
"We'll, be tough," said Matt.
OWe' will be very tough. We are
going to have a real good team."
doesn't fool. He isn't a. pop-off
eoach. When he tells you, you may.
believe. History and. the swimming
records prove that when Mann says
a team will be tough, you mightsafe-
ly bet a sixpence that he's right. The
evidence, Jeeves.:
Mann coached his first Michigaz
swiming team in 1925. In that year
Michigan. finished third in the' .$ig
Ten In 1926, they finished second.
From,1927 to'1938 they won nine of

12 Conference championships.,
three years they didn't win,
came in second.


From 1924 to 1938 Mr. Mann
has coached nine National Inter-
collegiate champions. His record
to date is five straight. Three
times during this period he wound
up second. This year Michigan
will be host, and Matt hopes to
show the locals how it's done.
English born, Matt Mann is stocky,
ruddy, healthy, spirited. He puts
everything he has into his coaching
--shouting, encouraging, ranting, and
berating his charges. His volatile en-
thusiasm has brought results. Matt's
pool is his laboratory, and he moulds
his products the hard way-working
them at a fierce pace. Out of the;
Mann laboratory have evolved your
finished stars-the incomparable
world's champion Dick Degener, Ed
Schmieler, Taylor Drysdale, Jim
Christy, Jack Kasley, Ed Kirar, and
Tom Haynie, to name a few.
Mann has a grudge to settle
this year. His supremacy last
season was strongly challenged
by Michael Peppe, and his Ohio
State armada. They beat Matt
in the Conference, but he came
back by nosing them out by a
single point n the Nationals. But
the margin wasn't wide enough
to satisfy Matt.
His big loss this year is naturally
last, yea's captain "Moose" Kirar,
Conference and national champion m
the 50 and 100 yd. sprints. Kirar, who
whizzed' off a 23 flat in the 50 and
a 52.7 in the 100, will be a hard man
to- replace. Other , issing faces will
be Jack Wolin, the diver who didn't
return, to school, breaststroker Wally
Creighton, and diver Hanley Stp ley.
EADING the forces of Mann this
year is Haynie, one of the nation's
stanldouts in the :free style. He will be
better 'this season than ever, for as
Matt puts it:
"You watch Tom this year.
Ites captain this year, and how
he's working. He's really going to
do things this season."
Matt is counting heavily on Walde-

Duke To Meet
U.S.C. In Bowl
Classic Tilt To Be Played
At Pasadena Jan. 2
DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 28.--(IP)
--Duke University athletic offi-
cials announced tonight they had
accepted an invitation to play
Southern California in the Rose
Bowl classic at Pasadena, Calif.,
on Jan. 2.
LOS ANGELES, Calif., Nov. 28.-()P)
-Duke was invited to play the
University of Southern California in'
the Rose Bowl football classic Jan.
Director of Athletics Willis O. Hun-
ter of U.S.C. made the formal an-
nouncement. Earlier today the Tro-
jans had been selected by the Pacific
Coast Conference to represent the
far west in the traditional battle.
The sudden announcement broke
all recent records in deciding on the
Rose Bowl candidates, and brings to-
gether two of the finest teams of
their respective sections of the na-
mar Tomski and Ed Hutchens, who,
along with Haynie and Kirar, copped
the' 400-yard national relay title at
New Haven last year in 3:33.2. Hal
Benham, hampered by a broken arm
last season, will handle the diving
nicely (he was rated third in the na-
tion in 1938), and Johnny Haigh will
be on hand for breast-stroke duty.
There are many more, Matt inevitably
having an abundance of talent, be-
sides a good crew of sophomnores.
Big names among the first year
men are Bill Beebe, Bill Holmes, and
Chuck Barker, all of whom swim back
stroke and free-style, and Blake
Thaxter and Jim Welch, free-stylers.
As to Ohio, well they lose only,
Neunzig and Patterson, back-stroker
and divdr respectively. Quayle, Sobol,
Johnson, Patnik, Higgins, and Co.
will be back next year, and that means
the Buckeyes will be tough, but as
Matt puts it:
"You watch Michigan."
There will be a meeting of all
varsity swimmers, today at 5 p.m.,
at the Intramural Pool.

Yale Star Is Named


In an exclusive poll conducted by
the Daily, Michigan's Varsity foot-
ball players yesterday named their
All-Opponent team.
That Northwestern's Wi 1 d c a t s
earned more respect than any of
Michigan's other rivals in holding the
Wolverines to a' scoreless tie, became
evident when Lynn Waldorf's crew
gained five first team berths on the
All-Opponent aggregation. Michigan

men, and Pennsylvania and Yale one

title, were both honored with second
team positions.
Nash Ignored
Cleo Diehl, Northwestern captain.
and Esco Sarkinnen, Ohio State's de-
fensive mainstay, were the end
choices. An astonishing feature of
the poll was that Minnesota's George
'Butch' Nash chosen on almost all pf
the All-Conference teams, barely won
honorable mention here.
Bob Voights of Northwestern and
Walter Shinn, Penn's husky captain,
dominated the tackle field, drawing
43 and 39 points. Twedell's running
mate at guard was Hal Method of
Northwestern who held a slight edge
over Minnesota's colored placekicking
specialist. Horace Bell, and Lyle
Rockenbach of Michigan State.
Haman Is Popular
Johnny Haman, Northwestern's,
All-Conference pivot man, had prac-I
tically no competition for the center'
post, with 39 points. However the
race for the second team position was
very close with Jim McDonald of Il-
linois and Bill Stack, Yale captain-
elect tied with six points. Stack was
awarded the position because he drew
one more first team vote.
Players who earned more than
three points were given honorable'

I am one

of those fellows that likes the


things to be right. Take for instance my laundry. There's nothing I get a big-

ger kick out of than putting on a freshly

laundered shirt. I happen to be one of




those fellows that appreciates a perfectly laundered collar, and I

know it's



going to be that way if it comes from the laundry The Laundry picks my soiled
clothes up and delivers them. That saves me the trouble of taking my laundry
to the post office and saves mother trouble too. That's another thing I enjoy.
Well, perhaps I am fussy but I like my clothes laundered the LAUNDRY way.
