the field with Tom Powell, Northwest-
ern captain, third.
Both Gus Sharemet and Charley
Barker looked great as they churned
their way to a spot in the finals in
both the 50 and 100 yard races with
Claire Morse and Dobby Burton
helping them in the century.
Dick Fahrbach of Northwestern
earned a post in both short sprints
while Don Wenztrom,'Iowa, qualified
for the 100 with his team mate, Em
Armbruster, taking the Hawkeye bur-.
den in the 50.
In the quarter mile grind, Jim
Welsh won his heat in what was a
new Big-Ten long course record, 5:10,
but with Patten swimming the sec-
ond heat this was immediately erased
as the long stroking Michigan sopho-
more came in sunder the flags in
5:09.4 with Blake Thaxter also quali-
fying in 5:17.2.
The relay events went as expected
with Fran Heydt, Skinner and Bill
Beebe winning the medley in 3:04.5,
shavingaby one-tenth of a second the
National Intercollegiate mark and
bettering the Big Ten time by more
than eight seconds.
Heydt is swimming with a heavily
bandaged left shoulder, the result of
a pulled muscle he acquired in prac-
tice yesterday. He came back after
the medley to pace the qualifiers in
the backstroke in 1:42.6, however.

and came in fifth.
Running against the great Hoos-
ier half-miler, lanky Campbell Kane,
a trio of coach Ken Doherty's lads
managed to place in a field of :nine
qualifiers in an impressive show of
strength. Kautz's time of 1:58.6 bet-
tered that of teammates Breiden-
bach and Egert, as well as that of
Kane who was not pressed but the
best performance was Purdue's Ed
Holderman who paced the distance
in 1:56.4. Sophomore McCarthy was
somewhat of a disappointment thus
far, in the broad jump when his best
leap, 21 feet, 8%18 inches, placed him
only fifth in a qualifying field of six,
but he will have a chance to better
that effort tomorrow. In the high
hurdles, the powerful Birhingham
lad copped second in a close blank-

Is Not Expensive

. .





It costs little to provide against loss. So little that you
are practicing false economy if you delay even an in-
stant. Important papers, precious heirlooms, keepsakes
-these are things too important to be left to chance.
Too imporant to be a lure to fire, theft or other des-
tructive forces. It's so inexj5ensive to provide an utter-
ly safe, convenient box in our modern safety vaults.
