Confident, conditioned and clam-
oring for action, a 19-man squad of
Michigan swimmers entrained early
this morning for Iowa City to defend
the first of their three major titles,
the Big Ten crown they won last year
for the 11th time in 14 years.
John Sharemet, suffering from a
cold, was left home when Harvey
Muller, assistant coach, herded the#
natators aboard the train that will
bring them to the Hawkeye campus

Second in the Conference last year
behind Ohio State's great Johnnyl
Higgins, Sharemet decided to forego
the championships this year in order
to be in top condition for the Nation-

later in the month.
The withdrawal of his second best
breaststroker left Matts Man with
only Jim Skinner to fight it out in
the 200 yard race that is being built
up in the tall corn country as THE
race of the meet with Al Povilaitis
carrying Hawkeye hopes for victory.
On the Wolverine team speeding
to the site of the championships, are
three individual Big Ten titleholders.
There is Charley Barker, 50 yards;
Gus Sharemet, 100 yards and Fran-
cis Heydt, 150 yard backstroker be-

Matmen Face
Powerful Foes
At Columbus,.
The Michigan wrestling term will
engage in a very difficult struggle
Friday and Saturday when they will
attempt to wrest the Conference title
away from Indiana-a title which
they lost last year by a one point
A particularly important factor to
remember before attempting to make
a diagnosis of the possible outcome
of the meet is the unusual diversifi-
cation of individual talent in the Big
Ten. Generally, in a meet of this kind,
the difference between a champion-
ship and an 'also-ran' is a well-bal-
anced squad with plenty of depen-
dable power.
Indiana arnd Purdue boast National
champs in the 121-pound class; Min-
nesota has a fine 128-pounder who
has yet to be beaten this year; in the
136-pound division, Indiana has a
returning Conference champ and
Purdue has a Midwestern AA\U
champ; Ohio State has a returning
Big Ten title-holder in the 145-pound
class; and, the list continues to roll-
on through the' remaining weights.
Outcome A Question
To attempt to concede the title to
any particular school at this time
would merely be,. a bit of wishful-
thinking and wild guessing for too
many things can happen before the
final bouts.
Turning to the Wolverine's chances,
we find a team that can match them
all between 136-pounds and 175-
pounds. And they have a possible
'dark-horse' in the 128-pound class
in senior Tom Weidig.
Coach Cliff Keen can put one of
two very capable 136-pounders
against the best. Sophomores Ray
Deane and Herb Barnett have shown
that they can always be counted-on
for a fine scrap. Two other good grap-
plers, Hap Langstaff and John Paup,
have plenty of stuff to show in the
145-pound clash. The 155-pound class
appears to be even stronger. In that
division you won't find very many
better wrestlers than Captain Bill
wombs or Art Paddy.

time. His dope sheet is cluttered with "possibilities" and he even goes
so far a. to point out that "Michigan's utmost, if everything goes perfectly
is almost 50 points, while the Hoosiers seem certain of at least 45 points
.and 45 Hoosier tallies means a title for them."
Figuring .up his original predictions, Diamond gives the following re-
Indiana 48 Ohio 21
Michigan 34 Purdue 20
That seems the rock-bottom of his pessimism though, for he goes on
to point out that "if Wes Allen can jump and beats Mikulas, and Thom-
as (oar Hall or McCarthy) whips Cochran in the lows and McCarthy
comes through to edge out Burnett in the broad jump, the meet could
be a very close one,"
