Wolverines Will Try To Square
Series With Bulldog SwimmersI

T h e Yale-Michigan swimming
meet at the Intramural Pool Feb. 11
may prove the determinant of three
moot questions: swimming suprem-
acy as between the East and the
West; the coaching abilities of Michi-
gan's Matt Mann and Yale's Bob
Kiphuth; and a combination of the
two-a test of swimming balance.
The East-West angle is obvious.
Yale again is back on top in the
East and the Wolverines are one of
the West's two best.
The rivalry between the two coach-
es goes back many years. A decade
ago, "swimming champions" and
Yale were synonomous terms. And
at the same time, Michigan under
Mann was climbing toward the top.
Yale Has Won Twice
Yale pinned two defeats on the
up and coming Wolverines, the second
coming in 1930. And ever sine'e then
Michigan wanted revenge.
But Yale was too busy building
up a string of consecutive victories

to listen to the upstarts from the
West. Matt Mann insisted that his
teams, teams which won five con-
secutive National Collegiate chain-
pionships, were the country's bestl
and clamored for the opportunity toI
break the Yale undefeated bubble
with the words getting slightly heat-
The third issue, the question of
balance, is the one that will decide7
the meet. Neither team is depend-i
ent upon "name" swimmers. For
victories in close meets, both clubs
plan on gathering enough seconds
and thirds to win decisions.
And Yale, this year, has balance.
In the 100 yard free style, Yale
has Capt. Johnny Good. Good has
11ready done 53.3 for the century and
has not yet been pressed. And he's
also good (no pun intended) in the
220. He set an Amherst pool record
last week by doing 2:19. And this
again without being ruffled Mr.I
Good is a man to watch.
Any Help Needed?
If the Blue needs any help in the
220, there is Russ Duncan and Gordy
Mustin. Duncan has done 2:17.2 and
Mustin must be good for 2:23.
In the short sprint, Elis have E.
N. Perryman and Biil Moonan with
the former the one to watch.;
The Bulldogs don't let up in the
breast stroke either. Here they have
Paul Metcalf and Ed Gesner, both
of whom can move. Metcalf can
break 2:30 consistently with Gesner
close behind.
Danny Endweiss is formidable in
the dive. Endweiss finished fifth in
the National Collegiate) last year
and has been going well so far this
