There will be four-man relays in
the 200- and 400-meter free-style, the.
200-breast and the 200-backstroke, a
medley and, if Matt Mann has his
say, a pyramid relay, with three men
swimming successively (as if they'd
run) 50-, 100 and 200-meters.;
Michigan, Ohio State, Iowa, Minne-
sota and Wisconsin will bear Wes-
tern standards in an attempt to bury
the Eastern standard bearers of Col-
gate, Dartmouth, Cornell, Rutgers,
Columbia, Lehigh and others.
West Is Favored
The West, starring Michigan and
Ohio State will undoubtedly be fa-
vored, but unforeseen complications
might arise at any moment. Not that
the near-tropical sun and notoriously
becoming Florida beauties have any-
thing to do with it, but last year both
Ohio State and Iowa bolted the meet.
This left Michigan holding the bag,
and without most of the varsity pres-
ent, this unforseen complication made
it nigh on impossible for those
bronzed lads of the Golden West to'
hold the fort (Lauderdale). And so
it was written that the East amassed
53 points to the hicks' 37.
Last winter Jim Welsh, Bill Beebe,
Bob Sauer, Johnny Haigh and Ed
Mack were standouts for the West.
The hangovers (not meant literally,
of course) making the trip this, year
are Welsh, Mack and Haigh with
physical support from 10 others.
But the meet will be inore than
fun for the swimmers. It will mean
practice in the 50-meter pool at Fort
Lauderdale and for those with Olym-
pic aspirations it means valuable
training. Then, too, when the var-
sity meets in Iowa in the long Hawk-
eye pool, it will be a valuable asset.
For the varsity intends to crack the
Iowa pool records in practically every

ones that the varsity is going to shoot
at. Quoth Matt Mann: "We should.
knock off, practically every relay
mark in the book. We've got the
men and we're going to go after 'em.
When asked whether or not this
was quotable Matt retorted, "Sure,4
let them know. They'll find out
about it sooner or later. If. they
can stop us, let them try."
The first on the schedule is the
mile breast stroke and the, mile back

(?) to fall in the Michigan State meet

By Squad Men,
Weidig And Lardner Score
Impressive Victories I
The Varsity wrestling squad's non-
letter men made a clean sweep of the
University Wrestling Championships
yesterday when they concluded the
two-day competition at the Field
House with victories in- three weight
Rex Lardner at 157 pounds, Carl
Mosser at 138 pounds and Tom
Weidig at 123 pounds, added to their
teammates' four victories of the pre-
vious day with convincing triumphs.
Lardner Is Extended
Lardner faced Doug Jeffrey, a
sophomore, in the final round of the
157-pound competition and nearly
succeeded in pinning his rival early
in the match. But Jeffrey hung on
doggedly and forced the match to the
limit, with Lardner, due to the near
fall, coming out on top, 8 to 5.
Mosser, last year's all-campus
champion at 135 pounds, won an ag-
gressive battle with John Rasch-
bacher, a freshman, in the finals to
walk off with the 138-pound title.
After Raschbacher gained an early
lead on a take-down, Mosser came
back strongly to take the initiative
and win out, 8 to 3.
Tom Weidig, who will do most of
the wrestling in the 121-pound divi-
sion for Coach Cliff Keen's Varsity
team this year, made short work of
his finals opponent, Chuck Reinsch,
by pinning him in 2:30 for his team-
mates seventh victory in seven starts.
Gold medals indicative of the
University of Michigan champion-
ship will be awarded to each of the
'weight-division winners, who are
Tom Weidig, 123; Andy Sawyer, 130;
Carl Mosser, 138; Johnny Paup, 147;
Rex Lardner, 157; Knobby Knob-
