Wolverine Swimming Records
Come Up For AAU Approval

By DON WIRTCHAFTER J
The high moguls of the Amateurl
Athletic Union of the United States
set out for Hollywood Beach, Fla.
today to spend the weekend talking
about rules and regulations, athletes
and athletics, laws and by-laws,
trials and tribulations, metres and
yards, and finally the University of
Michigan and some other -schools
throughout the country.
The occasion is the fifty-first an-k
nual gathering of the AAU, and more
than 400 of the moguls representing
every section of the nation will at-
tend.
Michigan Marks Considered
They're bound to do some talking
about the Wolverine athletes during
the three-day convention since six
Michigan swimming relay marks are
up before the committee for the
okay that is necessary to bind them
in the book of American records.
Besides this, Jim Skinner, the
phenomenal freshman, is applying
for recognition of his 1:02.1 per-
formance in the 100-yard short
course breast stroke race in New
Haven a year ago, and also his 220
time of 2:46.6 in winning the out-
troit Boat Club tank last August.
door AAU event at the 25-yard De-

The local lad ought to have no
trouble getting the nod on his 220-
yard splashing, but since Dick Hough,
the Princeton powerhouse bettered
his century mark by doing 1:00.6 the
following April, it seems quite doubt-
ful that Skinner's efforts over this
distance will remain in the books.
Apply For Six Relay Records
As far as the relays are concerned,
the Wolverine teams are applying for
two records in the 20-yard pool and
four marks that they blasted over
the 25-yard course.
Last February in the Michigan
pool, Walt Tomski, Charley Barker,
Tom Haynie, Gus Sharemet and Bill
Holmes teamed up to churn the 500-
yard distance in 4:26.1 and four days
later John Haigh, John Sharemet,
Tommy Williams and Tom Haynie
swam the 800-yard breast stroke
race in 10:11.1. The recognition of
the performance is doubtful, how-
ever, since an Ohio State quartet did
10:08.6 the following week.
The long course marks were all
turned in during the Wolverine field
day at Iowa City last February. Matt
Mann set his squad out to crack
the 600-yard relay record and be-
fore it was all over, the 400 and 500-
yard marks also went down. Holmes,
Ed Hutchens, Barker, Tomski, Jim
Welsh and Bill Beebe were the free
stylers that took part in this coup.
One other American record hit the
rocks that same day when Beebe,
Haigh and Holmes churned the 300-
yard medley in 3:4.6.
Aside from these applications for
American swimming marks, the list
of the Wolverines' requests for note-
worthy performance recognitions is
almost as long as today's D.O.B.

Illini Take Double-Header
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Dec. 6.-(IP)-
Illinois started off slowly in both ends
of a double-header basketball opener
tonight, but gained momentum for
easy victories over Monmouth College,)
37 to 19, and Wabash College, 60 to
21. A crowd of 4,346 watched the
games.

Coach Lowrey
Predicts Hard
GameSaturday
Baptists Present Veteran
Squad; Calvert And Ross
MayF PlayFull Game
Eddie Lowrey, Michigan hockey
coach, is smiling these days in spitel
of the fact that his boys are scheduled1
to meet a very strong puck squad
from McMaster University at the
Michigan rink in about three days.
"They may beat us," says Eddie,
"but they'll know they've been in a
game. Our squad is green but they're
learning every day. Why, we've got
Several boys out here who never
played hockey before in their lives.
Under the circumstances, I think
they made a very good showing
against London last Saturday."
Corson Shows Promise
Coach Lowrey is especially pleased
with the work of Johnny Corson,
sophomore right wing. He has plenty
of fight and with a little experience,
the coach expects him to be an im-
portant cog in his second line.
In last Saturday's contest with the
London (Ont.) A.C., in which the
Wolverines were nosed out in the last
10 minutes by a score of 3-1, the
Michigan mentor substituted freely in
his second line. It now appears that
this forward wall will be composed
of Corson, Gil Samuelson and Bill
Canfield or Cliff Dance.
McMaster U. Favored
For McMaster University, Michi-
gan's next opponent, the coach has
nothing but praise. "They play a
hard, rough brand of hockey but
they are good clean players and al-
ways fine sportsmen. It's thedkind
of a team we like to have on our
schedule."
The Canadians lost to the Wolver-
ines last year but it seems likely that
the situation may be reversed next
Saturday. The Baptists were not as
hard-hit by graduation as was Mich-
igan and they will be favored to win.
The Wolverine iron men, Larry Cal-
vert and Charlie Ross, who both
played 60 minutes at the defense
posts against London, wlil probably
go the route again against XeMas-
ter, but Lowrey may try moving Burt
Stodden back from the front line
later in the season, if he can find
a suitable substitute for the diminu-
tive wing.

BOWLING
The teams in the Campus Bowling
League, although nearing the mid-
point of the tournament, are more
tied up now than ever before. Last
night'sscompetition ended with two
teams sharing each of the first four
places.
The Skunks and the Splits head the
list, each having won 17 and lost 10.
The Lawyers and Spares, however,
are not to be counted out, having won
16 and lost 11.
In the Resident Hall's Bowling
League the Allen-Rumsey House leads
the pinmen with the Michigan House
close by. The leading team has won
13 and lost 5, while the Michigan
House has won 10 and lost 5, having
played three games less.

Two Big Six Grid Teams
(By The Associated Press)
The Big Six Conference-once
noted chiefly for the fact its football
teams were considered push-overs
for mighty Nebraska-appeared like-
ly last night to be represented in two
New Year's, Day bowl games, Mis-
souri opposing Georgia Tech in the
Orange Bowl"'and Oklahoma appear-
ing, tentatively, in the Cotton Bowl.
Opposing teams for two other bowl
games have been selected, but the
oldest of the New Year's classics, the
Rose Bowl at Pasadena, remained a
question mark pending the outcome
of Saturday's tussle between South-,
ern California and U.C.L.A.
The Sugar Bowl at New Orleans
will see Tulane battling the Texas
Aggies, and the Sun Bowl game at
El Paso, Texas, will bring together
