He just stood back and nonchalantly
popped long ones from all angles.
Sullivan was the Badgers' ball hawk
and in addition racked up 11 mark-
ers. Johnny Kotz also hit the cords
for 11 tallies, but he had a lot of
trouble finding the hoop during the

Wolverines Drag at Half
The Wolverines managed to pick
up four more double-deckers during
the initial half, but between these
Wisconsin showered markers in to
roll up a 34-13 halftime margin.
From then on, it was just a. matter
of how badly Michigan would be
beaten. They did manage to battle
the visitors on even terms during the
second half but all doubt of the out-
come had long since vanished.
Badgers Shoot Straight
Throughout the game Wisconsin
showed amazing accuracy in shoot-
ing. Altogether they sent 56 shots
at the Wolverine hoop, sinking 22 for
a 39 per cent mark. '

The box score:
By JOE McHALE'
"You look pretty good," said Coach
Matt Mann to his team last night
just before the end of the Michigan
AAU swimming meet; "you've got a
week to go before you meet Ohio
State; you'll need it, but you'll be
This just about sums up the results
in last night's meet. Harry Holiday

that he was predicted to break; but

ish and still was able to swim the

Other events won by the Maize and
Blue mermen were the 440-yard free-
style, the 200-yard freestyle relay,
and the diving. They swept the
breaststroke, the backstroke and the
50-yard freestyle and finished one-
two in the other three title events.
Battle Creek High School swim-
mers won two of the handicaps; Hor-
ton won the 50-yard breaststroke and
Lockton paced the entrants in the
50-yard backstroke. Richards of the
Michigan State freshmen was the
winner over the 21 natators entered
in the 50-yard freestyle handicap.
Canja Takes Diving Event
In the diving Alex Canja emerged
as close winner over fellow Wolverine
Lou Haughey; freshman Gil Evans
was third. Of the eleven divers corn-
peting Evans probably turned out the
best single dive of the evening, a full
gainer with a full twist and a one-
and-a-half front somersault (it's pos-
sible, try it sometime). He garnered
57 of his 246.4 total points in this
An amusing interlude was furnish-
ed by some of the swimming stars of
tomorrow; five-year-old Peter Fries
and his eleven-year-old brother Bob-
by cavorted with a troup of young
Detroit aquatic prodigies.
In the backstroke finals Holiday
eased through the 100 yards ahead
of veteran Ted Horlenko and Johnny
McCarthy in 1:01.1. The 440-yard
freestyle marathon developed early
into a two-man race between Walt
Stewart and. Johnny McCarthy of
Matt's team. Stewart won rather
handily in 5:05.1; J. Nichols of thel
Spartans came in third ahead of
Matt Mann III.
Wolverines Place in Handicaps
:Even in the handicaps past and
future Wolverines played a part.
Freshman Johnny Jans came in sec-
ond to Richards in the freestyle,
while John< Sharemet of last year's
team was runner-up in the breast-
stroke. The only race in which a
Michigan swimmer did not garner a
medal was the backstroke handicap.
McTaggart of Flint Central High
was leading until he hit his wrist on
the rope just an arm's reach from
victory; Lockton was right there to
take the advantage and the title.
Indications are that Mike Peppe's
Buckeyes are in for a real battle here
next Saturday when they furnish the
competition for the Mattmen.
