Natators Uniderdogs at NCAA
Meet This Week in Columbus

Over the Top for a New World Record

Wiese To Be Back
IH Uiform Soot

With a final burst of strenuous'
effort the Wolverine swimmers are
rounding out their practicing for the
National Collegiates to be held this
Friday and Saturday in Columbus,
the home of the teami favored to win
the title!.
The hard-working natators im-
press the onlooker with the fact that
they will be right in the midst of the
battle for the crown, Put the odds
against their winning the champion-
ship are very great.
The favored Buckeyes, who an-
nexed the Big Ten crown two weeks
ago by a narrow margin from Coach
Matt Mann's team, have not lost any
of their strength, as far as is known.,
On the contrary, they have gained
the services of probably the greatest
freestyler of today at 'any distance
albove 100 yards, freshman Bill
Smith. The Hawaiian flash was
named this year to the NAAU All-
American team at four positions:
the 220, 440, and 880-yard freestyles
and the 880-yard relay.
The Wolverines, on the other
hand, will find their points harder to
get than they were in the Conference
meet. Especially with Charlie Fries,I
stricken with pneumonia just before
the Big Tens, back in shape, the
Maize and Blue figured to win most
of their points in the freestyles. Un-I
fortunately, the rest of the countryI

is running over with good freestylers,
so that Michigan will probably lose
some of the first places they landed
at Chicago two weeks ago.
Also, Jim Skinner, a sure bet to
win the breaststroke title for the
third straight year, has found that
his studies in the medical school
dontleave him enough time for
swimming, so he will not go to
Etten's Status Uncertain
ASBURY PARK, March 22.-UA)-
Nick Etten, whom Manager Joe Mc-'
Carthy of the New York Yankees still
calls his first baseman, reported
today and expressed his fears that
he might be returned to Philadelphia
Phils. Etten came to the Yankees in
a deal involving two players and cash
but the athletes acquired by the Phils
failed to report. Commissioner K. M.
Landis now is studying the situation.
O'Dea Signs Contract
CAIRO, Ill., March 22.-(/P)-Both
good and bad contract news hit the
St. Louis Cardinals' spring -training
camp today. Catcher Ken O'Dea
signed up, but another unsigned con-
tract reached the club from Stan
Musial, last year's rookie sensation.

Bob Wiese, left-handed slugger on
the Wolverine baseball squiadi, i
expected to be discharged from the
Health Service sometime today.
Wiese suffered from a lacerated
nerve and a beautiful "shiner," when
he was hit Saturday afternoon by a
line drive off the bat of teammate
Dick Walterhouse. His eye was still
partially closed yesterday, which ac-
counts for the fact that he has not
left the Health Service sooner, but
Coach Ray Fisher expects that his
sophomore star will be practicing
again soon.
Meanwhile the rest of the squad
continued to work out in Yost Field
House, preparatory to going outdoors
just as soon as the weather permits.
The quarters are rather cramped,
but the players make the most of it,
knowing that the practice they do
now will stand them in good stead
later on in the season. In addition'
to the batters and hurlers practicing
in the nets, the infielders are getting
their old fielding eye back by warm-
ing up around a makeshift diamond
in the center of the floor.
A sliding pit has also been con-
structed and each member of the
team has to spend at least ten min-
utes a day sliding into the base.

O'Neill Names
Five Pitchers
EVANSVILLE, Ind., March 22-
(- Manager Steve O'Neill named
five pitchers today as his mound
choices for the opening series of the
Detroit Tigers' exhibition season
next week-end.
Hal White, Virgil Trucks and
Frank Overmire will face the Chi-
cago White Sox in the first game
Saturday. Tommy Bridges and Hal
Manders were instructed to stand
by for Sunday's contest, with a third
choice for that game resting between
Paul Trout and Hal Newhouser.
O'Neill reported keen rivalry for
the opening assignments, intensified
by word that weather had kept the
White Sox from swinging a bat in
their training quarters at French
Lick, Ind.
The Tigers, on the other hand,
have been able to work out with a
fair degree of regularity. They went
through their longest drill of the
season today, spending three hours
and a half handling bunts, running
down base-runners and breaking up
attempted steals.
A similar rehearsal is set for to-
morrow as a prelude to the club's
first practice game.

Michigan's ,two-mile relay remains
undefeated. From the Wolverine
standpoint this is the outstanding
result of the new historic Chicago
Relays held in the Windy City last
Beside the victorious relay per-
formance, other Maize and Blue high-
lights were: Bob "Hose-Nose" Ufer's
second in the fast 600-yard run;
Captain Dave Matthews' third in the
1,000-yard race; and Bob Hume's
fourth in a star-studded 2-mile run.
Johnny Roxborough started things
on the right track for the Michigan
men in the relay by bringing in a
substantial lead, after running a
1:54.6 half. This is Roxie's best time
of the year, and was probably the
best Wolverine performance of the
Chicago meet. Behind at the begin-
ning of his leg, he bided his time
until just the right moment and then
pulled ahead of the field.
Roxborough handed the baton to
Ufer, who ran a good 1:56.5 half.
Ross Hune took it from Ufer, and
after a "very fine race," to quote
Coach Ken Doherty, turned it over
to Captain Matthews together with a
three-yard lead. Dave lost this ad-
vantage at the 500-yard mark of
his half, but in the last lap turned
on the steam to win going away.
Time: 7:45.7, which breaks the
meet record set by Illinois last year by
one-tenth of a second.
Relay Most Interesting Race
Doherty said the two-mile relay
was probably the most interesting
race of the evening. The lead changed
hands no less than eight times. Al-
though Notre Dame took the front
for a brief time near the end, the
event was for the most part a duel

between the Wolverines and Illinois.
Three times the Maize and BlueI
runners had to come from behind to
overtake the Illini.
In the 600 Ufer and Lou Smith, Na-
tional AAU champ, wore themselves
out in the early stages of the race,
allowing Jimmy Herbert, last year's
winner, to nose them out at the
finish. The 1,000 yard run was won
by Les Eisenhart, who nipped Gene
Venzke by two yards. Captain Mat-
thews, however, almost turned the
tide in his favor. Opening up just
a little late, Dave came up from fifth,
passed by two opponents, and came
within an ace of capturing first place.
Bob Hume, pitted against such
champions as Greg Rice and Ollie
Hunter in the two-mile ran his best
race of the season to arab fourth
place. In doing so he beat Folsein of
Minnesota, who previously had taken
him in the Indoor Conference meet.
Warmerdam Center of Attention
The largest part of the crowd's at-
tention of course was riveted on
Cornelius Warmerdam, the world's
greatest pole-valuter. He obliged by
clearing the world record-breaking
height of 15 ft. 81/2 in.
Many track experts believe that
after a session with the Navy's fit-
ness program (he is now at the N.C.
Pre-Flight School) Warmerdam will
finally achieve his dream of 16 feet.
The Flying Dutchman attempted the
feat last Saturday, but hit the bar
on all three tries.
Another stand-out was Gil Dodds,
the famous Boston divinity student.
He loped through the fastest mile
time of the year, breaking the tape
in 4:98.5 to finish ahead of his well-
known rivals, Earl Mitchell and
Frank Dixon.

Moved Ahead
Providing Michigan with a non-
conference match before its Big Ten
opener against Illinois, April 24,
tennis coach Leroy Weir said Sunday
I that the Wolverines' match with
Michigan State had been moved up
from April 29 to April 21.
In an attempt to fill out the Maize
and Blue schedule with nearby op-
ponents, Weir is also attempting to
arrange matches with Western Mich-
igan and Notre Dame. The Wolver-
ines split even with these foes last
year, conquering the Broncos but
being edged out by the Fightin'
The Wolverine lineup is still far
from settled. Freshman Roger Lewis
is still resting on top of the heap,
but will have to withstand challenges
from Fred Wellington, Captain Jinx
Johnson and Roy Bradley to open the
season in that spot. Wellington is
now settledhin second place after
defeating Johnson in three long sets
last week.
This match was one of those long
drawn out duels that could have been
decided either way. After splitting the
first two sets, the two battled to 10-
all in the third before Wellington
broke through to win. In another
long match Ed Scott defeated Roy
Boucher to take over the number six
position, for the time being at least.
Dixon, Called by Army
Frank Dixon, fine Negro miler from
New York University was ordered by
the Army to report for induction next
Thursday, it was announced by the
Associated Press yesterday.



"You probably read that in your newspaper
a while ago. That war correspondent found
how our fighting men everywhere want
Coca-Cola. It must have something special
to be the favorite of the fighting forces.
There's taste you don't find anywhere this
side of Coca-Cola, itself. And there's that
welcome feel of refreshment that goes into
energy. Take it from me, Coke is good."
