Mermen Concede- Yale

a 1

. Only One First Place

Mark's Dope Sheet,...
HERE IS A hot tip that I wouldn't
have the faithful Double readers miss
for the world . . Mark Hellinger,
nationally known feature writer, let
this out of the bag in his syndicated
Sunday column.
"On the 29th at East Lansing,
Mich," said Hellinger, "some of the
nation's finest college teams com-
pete in the NCAA (National Col-
legiate Athletic Associaton) swim-
ming meet. The powerful YALE
outfit should take the honors, with
HARVARD second and PRINCE-
TON third. DARTMOUTH is the
dark horse and may beat out
PRINCETON for third."
With interest we note that the ex-
perts are picking our Wolverines to
finish out of the money. Around
these parts we had never figured that
"dark horse" Dartmouth had much
of a chance, but if Hellinger says so,
it nust be true.
Poor confused Marcus. Like a good
little bby, he ought to stick to writ-
ing about Hollywood glamour gals.

Der Johnson, Wolverine diving
star five years back and at present
a member of the University teach-
ing staff, has discovered a method
of seeing the approaching Nation-
al AAU swim championships grat-
is . . . The former National Col-
legiate diving titleholder has been
working out daily and will compete
in the meet unattached. . . Other
Ann Arbor entries came from Walt
Tomski, former sprint star, and
T-Bone Martin, the ineligible one
. . . A mammoth stop watch is
being installed at the south end of
the pool so that interested specta-
tors can obtain first hand info on
the swimmers' times.
Minnesota and Illinois were meeting
in a special mile relay race at the
big Chicago meet last Saturday eve
. Halfivay through the first leg,
Joe Hayes, the Gopher leadoff man,
let the baton slip out of his hand and
was forced to stop and retrieve the
tumbling wooden cylinder . . . The
Illinois entry opened up a tremen-
dous lead and could have won the
race with ease --.
But none of that for Jack Turn-
er, who ran the second leg for the
lads from Champaign . . . Upon
receiving the baton, he -stopped
and waited until the Gopher run-
ner was within breathing distance
before he proceeded on his way . .
As a result, the Gophers continued
on to win the victory, but Turner's
gesture brought Illinois even great-
er triumph.
Another dose of the same stuff
came in the sprint series . . . Herb
Thompson, the New Jersey sensa-
tion, broke twice at the starts and
was thereby disqualified from the
competition . . . The rest of the
dashmen, two of them from Michigan
(Bud Piel and Al Thomas) requested
that Thompson be allowed to return
. . . He did and proceeded to capture
firsts in every race.
There will be an important meet-
ing of the freshman candidates
for the Daily sports staff in the
Publications Building today at
7 p.m.

You -might call them cocky, but,
they aren't. You might even say
they were over-confident-but you're
wrong there also. Michigan's swim-
ming team knows whereof it speaks
when it says that Yale will be lucky
to win one first place in the coming
National Collegiate meet in East
Lansing this week.
The Wolverines are almost will-
ingJ to concede Yale's great world
record-breaking 400 yard free style
relay team a first place, but mister,
they're going to have to work for it!
The Elis hae lowered their own
existing mark twice this year so that
the new timing stands at 3:27.7-
chalked up one afternoon in an ad-
vertised race against time.
As a final tune-up before the
biggest meet of them all--the Na-
tional Collegiates--to be held in
East Lansing Friday and Saturday,
Michigan's undefeated swimming
team will face Northwestern in a
dual meet at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in
the Sports Building pool.
Leading the Wildcats will be
Capt. Tom Powell, fourth best
diver in the Big Ten and Dick
Fahrbach, a sprinter of no mean
Michigan, on the other hand, has
churned the same distance in 3:35-
the best they've turned in all season,
But if Matt Mann were to throw in
four streamlined natators like Dobby
Burton, Jack Patten, Charley Bark-
er and Gus Sharemet-the Yalemen
might find themselves chasing Wol-
verine feet.
The Elis have a cracker-jack
diver in the person of Jim Cook who
will match twists and turns with Earl
Clark and Frank Dempsey, the Ohio
Willians House
Wins Track Title
Scoring pohns in eight out of ten
events, Williams House edgedout
Chicago House for the Residence
Halls track championship last night.
With Jim Brown's first in the pole
vault, and a first, by Dick Pease in
the half mile, Williams made 221/2
points to Chicago's 21. Individual
honors went to Paul White of Chica-
go, however, with his firsts in both
the high and low hurdles.
Lloyd House, sharing power in ev-
ery event, earned 131 points to come
in third, ahead of Tyler House which
had eight points. In a tie for fifth
were Michigan House and Fletcher
Hall at seven points.
In the Independents Robert Owen
led the way with 47 points, to the
second place Wolverines' 38.

State aces. He is counted upop toI
cop a third and possibly a second. 1
The Eastern Collegiate champs
won't take a back seat in the distancej
and sprint events without a scrap
either. They have Rene Chouteau,
second in the 440 and fourth in the1
220 last year besides Howie John-
son who won the 220 in 2:13.1.
This lad Johnson will be as tough
as nails in the 00 yard free style
event. Clocked in 51.8 and 51.6
repeatedly this season, the Eli speed-
ster is right up in Bill Prew's fast
company with his teammates Ed
Pope and Dick Kelly not far behind.
Each, one of these boys is capable
of bringing points and with Danny
Dannenbaum hitting his stride in the
backstroke-the Yale medley relay
team taking a second or third-Capt.

Will Sanlburn placing in the distance
events--Johnny Meyers taking a
point or so in, the breaststroke-Yale
Will be right in there-for second

Matmen Lost
To Champions
Galles, Courtright Bowed
Grudgingly In Nationals
There's not much that you can say
to a guy when he goes down fighting
at the hands of a champion, and that
is exactly-what happened to grapplers
Jim Galles and-Bill Courtright.
While Oklahoma A. & M. and
Michigan State ran away with honors
at the recent National Collegiate
Wrestling Tournament, Galles and
Courtright gave their best-but it
just wasn't enough. The best that
Michigan could salvage from the meet
was a third place by Galles in the
175-pound class.
Courtright went down the hard-
est, since both of his matches were
forced into overtime. After winning
his first match, he lost to Smith,
Oklahoma's 165-pound champ in the
quarter-finals. Then he won the first
consolation tussles only to be dqwned
by Michigan State's Hutson for third
Galles worked his way up to the
semi-finals, but was defeated by Dick
DiBattista of Pennsylvania, 5-1.
Oklahoma, with 37 points, and
Michigan State, with 27 points, left
the rest of the better than 40 teams
way behind. And, since both of
State's two winners are from the
southwestern state, it was just about
Oklahoma all the way.

A lively band of spring gridders
spent two hours of intensive block-
ing and signal practice amid the chil-
ly winds and sloppy mud of Ferry
Field yesterday' afternoon. The air
resounded with this peppy chatter as
they drove hard blocks into the dum-
mies and ran up and down the field
in signal formation.
Among the linemen the spirit was
at its peak. Every crisp block into
the dummy was accompanied by
shouts of encouragement from the
players who were awaiting their turns.
Line coach Clarence Munn kept
his boys plenty hot throughout the
cold afternoon.
Munn is quite a humorist. After#
nearly every block he would crack
some joke to keep the lads in highI
spirits and make them forget about
the cold air as they drilled on post-
leae and inside-out blocks.
For example, on one occasion he
told Bob Kolesar to really hit the
dummy on a lead block. Kolesar
smashed into the dummy and drove
it back to the Field House wall. After
Bob had taken his place at the end
of the line, Munn turned to the
gridmen and said,
'tid I ever tell you about the time
last year when Kolesar smacked in-
to the dummy and banged it up
against that wall? Well, Bob came

and muttering something about that
being the toughest tackle to move
that he ever faced."
Yesterday's was the second out-I
door workout that the gridmen have
had during the current spring train-
ing grind. But because of the sloppy
ground conditions, scrimmage was
left off the menu.
Pittsburgh Sends Gee
To Pacific Coast Club
(By The Associated Press)
ONTARIO, Calif., March 24. -
Johnny Gee, $75,000 southpaw, was
optioned today by the Pittsburgh
Pirates to the Portland Club of the
Pacific Coast League.
The deal sent the former Univer-
sity of Michigan hurler to the Port-
land Club immediately but stipulated
that he might be recalled to the Bucs
on a forty-eight-hour notice.
Gee, one of the costliest of Pirate
players, was acquired from Syracuse
in the International League after
the 1939 season. An arm injury pre-
vented him from working for the
Bucs last year. In three exhibition
games this spring, he lacked control
and ,was charged with nine runs, 11
hits, eight walks against three strike-
outs in eight innings.
