We Hlope4
SOMEONE once said that all is not
gold that doesn't turn yellow and
right along that line we might say
that Michigan hasn't yet lost the Na-
tional Collegiate swimming title
which it defends in 10 days.

Two weeks ago we might have
said so. In fact, two weeks ago
we can remember saying so. But
now things have turned about.
And the worm has been the East-
ern Intercollegiates.

Everyone thought that Yale was in
after Jimmy Welsh took sick. With
the 10 points that the Michigan junior
was going to pick up (a first and a
second) gone, it looked as though the
Bulldog could start barking-and the
bite was going to be even worse. Butj
now, as we recall seeing somewhere,
"things have turned about."J
Item number 1: Howie Johnson was
whipped in the hundred in 52.6 by
Charley Colwell of Army. This may
shove the Eli down to fourth place
behind Gus Sharemet and Charley
Barker of Michigan and the cadet.
Then again, he may pop up into first
2. Ned Parke of Princeton, after
one week in the breast stroke, won
the event in 2:24.6. This may
bring repurcussions, shoving John
Sharemet of Michigan and Yale's
trio of breastrokers all down the
3. Sciefer of Brown swam 23.7 in the
50 and 53 flat in the hundred as he
won both events at the New England
Intercollegiates last Saturday. And
along with Guy Lumsden of Wayne
swimming 23.4 in the 50 that means
that Yale's sprint men are going to
be in for plenty of trouble.

' 4, i f). ,a'wiiwdi y team,
wixuihig in Philadelphia in 2-56.8,
showed that it too could beat
5. Eli Rene Choteau swam the quar-
ter in 4:53.2 and that'll make him
plenty tough to beat at the Collegi-
BUT if there is cause to be happy
so is there cause for sorrow. The
entire swimming team is going to
make the trip to New Haven, Conn.,
by day coach. Yes, 750 miles sitting
The team will leave here on
Wednesday, probably in mid-
afternoon, arrive in New Haven
Thursday and then presumably
be all set to swhi Friday and
Saturday. We say "presumably"
It's tough enough for the squad to
make the trip by pullman, but by
day coach . . . well, that's even
We appreciate the problem with
which Matt Mann is faced. He
had a limited budget and in order
to give his swimmers as much
competition as possible he has to
cut down somewhere. But the
National Collegiates isn't the
place to cut down. If the bud-
get is insufficient then the
Board in Control should augment
We scarcely think that the swim-
mers would object to coming back
by day coach if the paucity of money
demands it, but the squad shouldnat
least be able to go there in a pull-
man. With the reduced rate per mile
which will go into effect on March
21 it doesn't seem too impossible for
the Board to allocate to the natators
a little more of the stuff that makes
the world go 'round-and we don't
mean love.

RALPH Schwarzkopf was one of'
those who was glad to hear that
Taisto Maki was beaten by Walter
Mehl in Kansas City in the two-mile
Monday night. The Wolverine cap-
tain, who will meet the Finnish ace
here Saturday night, feels that now
that the latter has been whipped he'll
really start out with a stiff pace.
Schwarzkopf feels that he has
a stronger finish than the Fin-
nish star--and if he can stay on
his heels throughout the race
then he can whip him at the fin-
ish. And that ends that.

A headline in yesterday's Daily:
"Winchell Wins
Dorm Mat Title"
We wonder if that means that now
everyone can walk all over them.

one event of a whole card which will
threaten Field House records.
The one-mile run will bring to-

House has had in years. Heading the
list of entries in this event will be
Butler University's sophomore star
Earl Mitchell who has been timed in
4:12. In addition, Bill Southworth
the Butler varsity ace, will be present
to take a crack at Ralph Schwarz-
kopf's recently established record of
Michigan will run Ed Barrett, who
ran 4:14.6 in the Conference Meet
two weeks ago, and Jack Dobson, who
has run 4:21 outdoors and has shown
great improvement this year. Michi-
gan Normal will send over Joe Brez-
ezinski and Duane Zemper, who
Coach Lloyd Olds believes may be
better than his present star, Tom
Quinn. Bud Leonard of Western
StaterTeachers' brilliant miler will
'also run. And, as something of an
experiment to satisfy the track fans
who have long thought that Tommy
Jester would make a swell miler,
Coach Ken Doherty has entered his
half-mile star in the event.
Quinn will head the field which will
be seeking to break Abe Rosenkrantz's
half-mile mark of 1:55.1, set in 1935.
Michigan will have Dye Hogan, who
was fourth in the Conference despite
being almost knocked down, and who
ran 1:56.6 last Saturday, and sopho-
more Johnny Kautz, the dark-horse
of the event. Michigan State will
send its Capt. Roy Fehr and Normal
will also enter Bud Lautenschlager.

Falls For Third Time
The freshman half-mile record
changed hands yesterday for the third-
time this year when Quentin Brels-
ford raced the distance in 1:58 to
break Bob Ufer's record by six-tenths
of a second. In the same race, John
Purdue also bettered the old mark,
doing 1:58.1, and Bill Dawson be-
came the fifth yearling to break two
minutes, running 1:59.7.
Earlier in the year, Brelsford had
set a new 880 mark of 1:58.8, but that
time stood for only a few weeks when
Ufer set a new standard of 1:58.6.

MILWAUKEE, March 19.-(')-
Arturo Godoy, Chile's "forgotten
man," who came out of obscurity to
go 15 rounds with heavyweight cham-
pion Joe Louis, today replaced Tony
Galento as the National Boxing Asso-
ciation's choice as No. 1 contender
for the brown bomber's title.
Fred J. Saddy of Milwaukee, chair-
man of the NBA's championship rat-
ing committee, placed Godoy's per-
formance at the top of his review for
the past quarter, ahead of Henry
Armstrong's knockout victory over Pe-
dro Montanez and Armstrong's draw
with Ceferino Garcia.
Galento dropped to second place
among the heavyweight contenders,
followed in order by Bob Pastor, Lou
Nova, Tommy Farr and Max Baer.
The committee placed Johnny Pay-
chek, Louis' next foe, in eighth place.

events are run as follows: each mans
on a team will shoot two rounds oft
twenty-five free throws each, anda
the ten highest rounds will consti-f

necessary for each team to have atc

All men competing with their fra-

qualify for this event, the individual

PINEHURST, N.C., March 19.-VP)
-Ben Hogan, 140 compact pounds
of Texas-born golf pro, came within
six inches of setting a new competi-
tive course.record today when he shot
a six-under-par 66 that gave him the
first round lead in the North-South
Open Golf Championship by a margin
of three strokes.
Hogan, who plays out of White
Plains, N.Y., came to the 17th tee of
Pinehurst's testing No. 2 course need-
ing two pars for that 66. He put all
his considerable power into a well-
hit iron shot that dropped the ball
onto the green, 186 yards away, 15
feet hole-high to the right.
Sinking that putt would have put
him seven under par. But Benny
babied it a bit, and the ball dropped
six inches short. He got his par 3
there and par 4 on the finisher, and
thus tied the competitive course
mark set up in the second round of
last year's tournament by Harry
Hogan, who stands second in the
list of the season's money winners,
came in three shots ahead of another
little man, Paul Runyan.

Tennis Team To Have
Junior Varsity Squad
This year, for the first time, Mich-
igan will have a junior varsity tennis
team. According to varsity coach
LeRoy Weir the team will consist
of those players showing promise,
but who have not had ample exper-
ience to play on the varsity.
A three-game schedule is being
arranged for the "B" team, but as
yet it is not completed. The only
definitely arranged match is with
the "B" team of the University of
Toledo. The other two matches will
be against the squads of some of the
smaller Michigan colleges.
