Natators Leave
For Dual Meet
With Buckeyes
Six Sophomores Included
On Varsity Expected
To PlayLeading Role
A three car caravan carrying Mich-
igan's Big Ten and National Collegi-
ate swimming champs rolls out today
toward Columbus town where the
Wolverines open their 194 season to-
morrow in a dual meet against Mike
Peppe's Buckey# forces.
Coach Matt Mann is taking 14 of
his dynamited natators on the trip
to settle once and for all the ques-
tion raised by the two 42-42 dead-
locks that the two squads fought to
last year.
Included on the traveling team is
Capt. Hal Benham and Jack Wolin,
who will take care of the Michigan
diving duties, free. ,tylers Charley
Barker, Gus Sharemet, Tommy Wil-
liams, JohnGillis, Jim Welsh, Dobson
Burton, Bill Holmes and Ed Hutchens,
breast strokers Johnny Haigh and
John Sharemet and back strokers
Bill Beebe and Dick Riedl.
Only Three Missing
There are only three names miss-
ing from the roster that battled to
ties in the two Ohio meets last year,
Tom Haynie, the former captain and
free style ace, Wat Tomski, the-
sprinter, and diver Adolph Fersten-
feld, but their places are capably
filled by the star-studded sophomore
crew that Matt Mann has gathered
together this year.
Six of the 14 Michigan mermen
will be swimming their first race un-
der the Wolverine banner tomorrow,
but they're as tried and tested a first
year bunch as Matt ever had.
For it was these same sophomores
who stole the show last November in
the natators' debut at the annual
Swim Gala. In that exhibition, Gus
Sharemet swam the 50-yard free
style in 23 seconds flat and returned
later to turn in a 52.4 century. Broth-
er John churned the 150-yard breast
stroke in 1:45.6.
'Twas A Great Day
Husky Gillis covered the free style
century in 54.8. Burton, Matt's
pocket battleship, swam the 200-
yard distance in 2:05.4 and Riedl went
100 yards on his back in :62.2. All
in all, that November day proved a
great one for the newcomers, and
they've come a long way since then.
And you can expect big things
from Tommy Williams, too. He's
another sophomore who was injured
just before the Gala and was unable
to take part, but he can take care
of either the breast stroke or free
style duties for Matt and do so in
an expert manner.
Mike Peppe will have his hand
full tomorrow when Matt sets his
powerful champions into the Colum-
bus pool, and you can be sure that
the Wolverine sophomores will play
a leading roll in the Michigan-Ohic.
State swimming festivities.

Shaughnessy Goes To Stanfor

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 11.-(;')-
Clark D. Shaughnessy, 47, University
of Chicago "coach without a team,"
inherited the remnants of a last-place
Pacific Coast Conference squad to-
day through his appointment as foot-
ball director at Stanford University.
President 'Ray Lyman Wilbur, of
Stanford, said the Chicago mentor
had been appointed'for five years but
made no mention of the salary.
Shaughnessy, with a ranking of pro-
fessor in addition to head football
coach at Chicago, was believed to
have received $7,500 a year.
Trustees at Chicago decided last
month to abolish football after a dis-
astrous season. Shaughnessy suc-
ceeds Claude "Tiny" Thornhill, dis-
missed at the close of the Indians'
most disappointing season in the uni-
versity's gridiron history.
Stanford failed to win a conference
game last year, losing six and gaining
a tie with U.C.L.A. In a post-season
game Stanford defeated Dartmouth.
Earlier this week Thornhill said he
wished good luck for his then un-
named successor and expressed hope
the new coach would have the cooper-
ation Thornhill said he had "not en-
joyed for several years."

Shaughnessy is a former gr
Minnesota football end and also v
letters in basketball and track.
first coaching experience was
assitant football mentor at Min
sota.
