Prognosticating...
THE swimmers may think that sit-
ting up in a day coach is tedious
labor but it pales into insignificance
(where have we heard that before)
when compared to our own nocturn-
al gymnastics as each year we at-
tempt to say how-and why-Michi-
gan's swimmers will win the Na-
tional Collegiate title.
Yesterday afternoon we started
out, our time charts in front of
us and experience behind us. Four
pencils later we arrived at cer-
tain conclusions which may be
found below.
Our excuses are many, numerous
and myriad. In short we have rea-
sons for everything. We picked
Michigan to win by three points but
don't be surprised if Yale annexes
its first Collegiate title since it be-
gan claiming it was the best swim-
ming college in the country-an in-
cident which coincided strangely
with the Pelopennesian War.
First of all we give you our
upset killer-diller. This eve
surprises us. Francis Heydt will
beat Collegiate champion Al Van-
de Weghe of Princeton in the
backstroke. So help us-and
Mr. Vande Weghe too. If the
Tiger wins, he'll have to break
1:35 to do it.
In case of such an emergency
Michigan would find itself with two
less points and a lot less confidence.
Point number two: a lad named
Paul Wolf, a first cousin to Methu-
sala, is back again. Wolf was a
member of the 1936 Olympic team and
may tear up the pool. He supposed-
ly swam 51.8 for the hundred. We're
skeptical. But he's capable of throw-
ing oil on troubled Wolverine wat-
ers if he decides to swim in a hurry.
Watch out for him in both 50 and
100.
If Princeton whips Michigan
in the medley relay-and there
are rumours that they're consid-
ering such a plan, more points
fly out the window. Close that
window, we feel a draught.
At any rate, just rememer that
while individuals may be off here
and there it's the team total that
counts. And that should remain as
we have it. At least Yale's won't
change. Whether or not Michigan's
does will decide the victor-and vic-
tim.
If the results don't conform to the
following, the mistakes lie with the
swimmers-not with us.

Capt. "Butch" Jordan leads a
group of five Wolverines who will
compete at Champaign, Ill., Fri-
day and Saturday in the National
Collegiate Wrestling Meet. Jor-
dan seeks the heavyweight crown.
GOLIF TIP'
by RAY COURTRIGHT
Varsity Golf Coach
The Daily Sports Department has
asked me to give some hints on the
fundamentals for the benefit of those
who wish to play a better game this
and succeeding years.
Each article will deal with some
phase of the game such as:
grip, stance, straight left arm,
swinging the club, head, cock-
ing the wrist, pivot, balance, slic-
ing, hooking, topping, smother-
ing, and some of the more simple
rules.
Today, get your mashie out and
start swinging. Try to sense the
weight of the club head by relax-
ing the wrists and arms, and by
not gripping too tightly. Do not
hurry the swing. Allow the body
to respond to the swinging weight.
Swing back and forth for five to 10
minutes in a lazy manner, trying to
get rid of all tension.
FRESHMAN SPORTS STAFF
There will be a meeting of the
freshman sports staff at 2 p.m. to-
day in the Publications Building.

A five-man squad. of Wolverine
wrestlers leaves at 8 a.m. today for
Champaign. Ill., prepared to make a
strong bid for the National Intercol-
legiate title.
The men Coach Cliff 1,een picked
to make the trip will be faced with
the task of dislodging the Oklahoma
A. and M. powerhouse from a three-
year reign at the top of the country's
grappling heap. The Aggies, unde-
feated in dual meet competition this
season, are favored to take their sev-
enth national crown.
Capt. "Butch" Jordan, Big Ten
heavyweight champion, will lead
Michigan's Conference runners-up
against a field that will include, be-
sides the Aggies, Lehigh, Eastern
Intercollegiate titleholders for three
successive years; Kansas State, Big
Six Champions; and Indiana, one-
point winners over the Wolverines
for the Big Ten crown.
Nichols, Danner Seek Title
Coach Keen will depend on his
three Big Ten champions and two
second-place winners to carry the
Wolverines through the two days of
action against the nation's best, Be-
sides Jordan, Conference 175-pound
titleholder, Don Nichols and Har-
land Danner, the class of the Big
Ten 155-pounders, will be attempt-
ing to add the National crowns to
their lists.
Sophomore Jim Galles, who bowed
in the Conference finals before two-
time champion Chauncey McDan-
iels, of Indiana, may have another
shot at the Hoosier if the pairings
are right. Oklahoma A and M's1
Clay Albright and Tommy King,]
of Lehigh, are the other big threats
for the 165-pound title.
Combs' Rival Withdrawn
Bill Combs, whose injured knee
lost him the 145-pound Conference
crown to Ohio State's Tony Maon-
tonaro, will have to forego his re-
venge for another year, it was learned
yesterday. The Buckeye has been
withdrawn from the meet.
A wholesale shake-up by Indiana's
Coach Billy Thom also took Combs'
other chief Big Ten rival, Joe Ro-
man, out of reach. Roman dropped
into the 136-pound division in the

Bill Combs will be looking for
the national 145-pound wrestling
crown at Illinois this weekend,
having fully recovered from the
knee injury which hampered his
efforts to gain the Big Ten cham-
p onship.

ORLANDO, Fla., March 27.-(IP)--
Detroit's Tigers were ineffective at
the plate against Kendall Chase and
Joe Haynes today and lost an - exhi-
bition game to the Washington Sen-
ators, 5 to 2.
Some sparkling fielding plays by
Hank Greenberg helped keep the
score down as the Senators nicked
Buck Newsom and Clay Smith for
eight hits.
The big ex-first sacker threw Jim-
my Wasdell out at the plate after
catching Gee Walker's foul fly in
the third, and made a long running
catch of Wasdell's lusty drive in the
fifth.
shift which forced Scotty .Sefton,
Conference 121-pound champion, to
the sidelines.
With these two men gone, the
oustanding men Combs will have to
beat are Joe Scalzo, Penn State's
runner-up last year; Vernon Nell,
Oklahoma A and M; Harold Masem,
Lehigh; and Glenn Duncan, Big Six
titleholder from Kansas State.

Editor's note-This is the second of
two articles describing the prospects
of the National Collegiate Swimming
Meet to be held Friday and Saturday
in New Haven. Today's article deals
with the five events to be held on
Saturday night.
By DON WIRTCHAFTER
On Saturday, the nation's nata-
torial might will swim and dive in
?he five events remaining after Fri-
day night's program. Accortling to
the observers here, they will prob-
ably stack up as follows:
100-yard freestyle: This race prom-
ises to feature the entire meet, for
the field will be as fast and classy
as ever entered one tank. It includes
Gus Sharemet and Charley Barker
from Michigan, Howie Johnson from
Yale, Paul Wolf from Southern Cal-
ifornia, Charles Cowell and Bob Gar-
rett from Army, Guy Lumsden and
Bill Prew from Wayne, Bob Percyl
from Louisiana State, Chic Acosta
from Florida, Bob Tarlton from Tex-
as, Ed Kompf from Syracuse and
many others who have done better
than 54 seconds. Barker and Wolf
tied for the title last year, but the
Pacific Coast star's :51.8 performance
this season stamps him as the man
to beat. Sharemet has turned in a
:52.1 and ought to finish at least
second. Cowell whipped Johnson in
,,he Eastern Intercollegiate League
Meet, but either is capable of bat-
tling Barker for the third spot.
Higgins Gets Chance
200-yard breastroke: Now that
Dick Hough has gone from the
Princeton lineup, Ohio's Johnny Hig-
gins ought to get what he's been af-
ter for a long time, a National Col-
legiate crown. The highly seasoned
Buckeye will find his chief competi-
tion in Hough's understudy, Ed
Parke, the present Tiger mainstay.
Parke has done 2:24.8 in winning
[he Eastern Collegiates. The rest
of the field ouglht to follow at least
five yards behind. Yale has Ed Ges-
ner and Johnny Meyer, both in the
2:26 class. Michigan will depend on
its two Johns, Sharemet and Haigh,
while Al Kirkland from Illinois,
Iowa's George Poulos and Mike Sojka
from Texas will all be possible point
winners.

440-yard dash: Jim Welsh would
have made this quite a race, but even
without him, it has plenty of spice.
The nation's distance aces, Andy
Clark, Wayne, Rene Choutau, Yale,
and Eric Cutler, Harvard. will match
strides again. Ohio has Harold Stan-
hope for a possible fourth while
Buckeye Johnny Patton, Jim Rood,
the Florida ace, Michigan's Blake
Thaxter and others will churn intp
the fifth place spot.
Three-meter diving: Al Patnik and
Earl Clark, Ohio's unbeatable duo,
will even be more impressive in this
event than in the lows. The third
place will produce the battle with
Michigan's Strother Martin and
Yale's Jim Cook favored to be the
standouts. If the meet turns out as
close as it is expected, either of these
two men might bring victory to his
team by beating his rival. Wayne's
hope, Bobby Gardner, Hal Benham,
and Jack Wolin, from Michigan and
Tom Powell oz Northwestern will
probably vie for the fifth place point.
Relay May Decide Meet
440-yard freestyle relay: Two years
ago Michigan had to win this event
in order to capture the title by one
point. It might be almost the same
story this time. The Wolverine quar-
tet, Barker, John Gillis, Ed Hutchens
and Gus Sharemet, is undefeated in
competition so far and will be fa-
vored to strike the wall first Satur-
day. Yale, with a 3:30.6 performance
in the books, lost to the Michigan
team in its dual meet, but will offer
the most competition to the Wolver-
ines. The Eli quartet is made up of
Willis Sanburn, Ed Pope, Ross Dun-
can and Johnson. Wayne, North-
western, Ohio and Army all have
teams that. are capable of battling
for the lower positions.
I-M Swim Meet Today
The Annual Independent Swim-
ming Meet will be held at 7:30 p.m.
today at the I-M Pool with the For-
estry Club favored to win. Other
contestants are: Wolverines, Hill-
billy A.C., Phys. Eds, and the Hia-
watha Club.

By HAROLD WILSON
Take the highly promising per-
formances of the current freshman
track squad; add the improvement
which might reasonably be expected
with a year's practice and physical
growth; mix in a sufficient number
of good grades to hurdle the eligibil-
ity bugaboo, and you have the for-
mula for Michigan's hopes to con-
tinue its dominance of Midwestern
track circles in future years.
For included among the 85 year-
ling trackmen is much material of
potential varsity calibre. In the re-
cently-concluded indoor season five
frosh records were smashed and two
others equaled by this almost per-
fectly balanced squad which lacks
strength in but one event, the two-
mile run.
Ilalf-Milers Stand Out
The yearling outfit has an out-
standing group of half-milers. Quen-
tin Brelsford, John Purdue, and Bob
Ufer have all bettered the old frosh
mark of 1:58.9 held by Torn Jester,
varsity half-rmiler, Brelsford and
Purdue running 1:58 and Ufer 1:58.6.
Another pair, Dave Matthews and
Bill Dawson, has run under 2:00.
Brelsford, Ufer, Purdue and Mat-
thews also form the record-breawing
two-mile relay team, which lowered
the old standard from 8:12.8 to
7:59.3.
A host of 14 freshmen has bettered
54 seconds in the quarter mile, Ufer
turning in the best time with a rec-
ord-breaking :50.3 as compared with
Jack Leutritz's former mark of :51,5.1
EARN $0WE
DURINGSUMMER
OR YEAR-ROUND
We can use several reliable college
men, during summer or full time, to

less communities. Earnings $50.00 a
week and better. Projection equip-
ment, sound films, everything fur-
nished. No experience needed. For
complete information write imme-
diately to Southern Visual Equip-
ment Co., Department .., Box
2404, Memphis, Tennessee.

Ufer also teamed up with three other
capable quarter-milers, Hugh Dalzell,
Have Matthews and Bill Dawson, to
form a quartet which established a
new mile relay record of 3:25.8.
Hurdle Marks Tied
In both the low and high hurdle
events the frosh records have been
tied. Jim Byerly and Neil McIntyre
have each run 8.4, the existing year-
ling mark, in the 65-yard highs,
while Norm Elson and Macuityre
have equaled the 65-yard low barrier
mark of 7.4.
In the 60-yard cash Bob Ufer
again has the best time, 6.4, only a
tenth of a second off the yearling
recoord, while Charles Donahey has
run 6.5, These two speedsters, along
with Elson and Dawson, hung up
a new half-mile relay record of 1:32.6
last Thursday, clipping nine-tenths
of a second off the old mark.
A trio of promising shot putters,
Rudy Sengel, Gene Hirsch and Bill
Steele, have all turned in heaves of
40 feet or better. Sengel's mark, 45
feet 9 inches, is especially impressive,
since it is the second best ever made
by a freshman, furthered only by
Bill Watson's yearling mark.
Two Jumpers Show Well
Frank McCarthy and Neil McIn-
tyre have both high-jtunped better
than six feet, the former having the
best mark with a leap of six feet
one-half inch. In the broad jump
this same duo paces the freshmen,
each having done beter than 21 feet.
A quartet of potential varsity pole
vaulters, Fred Spaulding, Bob Can-
hamr, Bob Segula and Wilbert Wede-
no a, round out; the yearling squad.
Spaulding's vault of 12 feet six
in('hes is the best effort turned in
during the indoor season.
