Stop Ohio State PowerPlays In Long Workout

World Record May Be Smashed
At Fifth Annual Swim Carnival.

They're getting the old eraser
ready to use on the record board at
the I-M pool, for Matt Mann's Var-
sity squad is going into action Fri-
day night in the fifth annual Swim
Every time the aquatic carnival
has been held in the past, at least
one world mark has fallen by the
wayside. Back in 1935 Jack Kasley
knocked off a record by swimming
the 100-yard breast stroke in 1:03.5.
The following year found Ed Kirar
splashing to a new mark in the 50-
yard free style event, and during the
next two Galas the Wolverine relay
teams kept up the pace by breaking
existing marks.
In 1937 it was the 200-yard sprint
quartet composed of Walt Tomski,
Ed Hutchens, Tom Haynie and Ed
Kirar that did the trick, while last
year Bill Beebe, Haynie, Charley
Barker and Tomski teamed up to
crack the 100-yard free style relay

With his own design of the butter-
fly stroke, the local lad has already
unofficially bettered Kasley's exist-
ing mark of 63.5 seconds that was
set in a meet after the Gala of 1935.
Skinner's exhibition will be a sight
worth the price of a carnival ticket

Divers Work Out
The Wolverine divers will also
play an important role in the carni-
val. Capt. Hal Benham, T-Bone
Martin and Jack Wolin were all
working on every possible twist and
turn from off the board yesterday
in an effort to give the fans a real
show. Ralph Pzsynski, the sopho-
more diver, will also be on hand.

I Harmon Is All-American Back



Gridiron Bluebook..
How well do you, as a spectator,
know the rules?
Just assume that you are now
sitting in the Stadium next Sat-
urday as Michigan plays Ohio
State. Forget all about watch-
ing Tom Harmon and Don Scott
and Jim Strausbaugh and For-
est Evashevski. Just concen-
trate on what is happening and if
any of these eventualities should
eventuate just how would you in-
sist that the officials interpret
1. Michigan kicks off to Ohio State
and the ball, without touching a hos-
tile hand, rolls into the Ohio State
end zone. Evashevski, who claims
he's the first man down (on the
ground?) after a kick-off, falls on
the ball but it pops out of his hands
and rolls thru the end zone and out
of the field of play. What is the

ing to score. I'm going to score."
Does the referee agree with him?
9. Johnny Raab passes from his
own 45 and the ball is caught by
Steve Andrako on the Michigan
20 where he is immediately
downed. What happens now?
10. With 10 seconds remaining to
play in the ball game and Michigan
leading 2-0, Tom Harmon takes a
pass from center and runs diagon-
ally across the field. He gets to one
side and starts on his way back. The
gun goes off sounding the end of the
game and as soon as Harmon hears
hat he whoops for joy, shouts "hur-
ray for our side" and falls to the
ground quivering with contentment.,
What happens?

A Perfect Score... -


The fact that they were hotly par-
isan supporters of the Red and Blue
f Pennsylvania was not enough. No
exhibition such as Tom Harmon put
on at historic Franklin Field last Sat-
urday could possibly miss-and didn't
miss converting the staunch Quaker
ans into boosters of the Whirling
Dercish of Gary, Ind.
Every last one of the 57,000 cus-
omers down to the smallest wide-
eyed boy marveled at Harmon's
ingle-handed accomplishments. They
had read reams of unrestrained pub-
icity about the Wolverine halfback
and were admittedly skeptical when
the whistle blew for the kickoff. But
t's different now. He's All-Ameri-
can as far as the East is concerned.
Grange Argument Revived
Press observers and radio an-
nouncers alike were unanimous in
their praise for Harmon, some of
them even going so far as to revive
the argument as to the relative mer-
its of the Hoosier Hammer and Red
Paul Douglas, popular young East-
ern announcer, remarked after the
game that "although Grange was a

COLUMBUS---A definitely Torn
Harmon-conscious Ohio State foot-
ball team is out to keep Michigan's
pride down Saturday at Ann Arbor.
A tackling dummy, painted yellow
and blue and bearing the numerals1

the Buck practice field Tuesday.
Every player has been told how the
Michigan back passes when he starts
out to run and runs when he fades
back to pass.
It was "Watch Harmon" and "Har-
mon may do this" as coaches sent the
Buckeye squad through practice,
pointing toward stopping the shifty
runner and apparently confident the

IOWA CITY-With six first string
players nursing injuries, the Univer-
sity of Iowa football squad went
through a light workout-chiefly
passing and signal drills-Tuesday
in preparation for the game with
Northwestern at Evanston Saturday.
Coach Eddie Anderson was nursing
a cold and took little active part in
directing practice. There were not
enough players without injuries to
make up three teams. However, all
the injured men except Bruno An-
druska will be in condition Saturday,
CHICAGO-The Chicago Maroons
worked indoors Tuesday for the sec-
ond straight day, concentrating on
improved running plays in a two-
hour workout against the freshmen.
Lounsbury and Richardson, var-

with the basketball squad, were on
