University Swimmers To Take Part in

Hume Twins Given D
By BIL LAMBERT
When the Wolverine thinclads suc-
cessfully defended their Western
Conference crown Saturday night at
the Chicago Field House and piled
up a record number of 75% points,
they proved conclusively that quan-
tity as well as quality is an impor-
tant factor in turning out chain-
pionship squads.
The evidence that team balance
was the keynote of Michigan's suc-
cess is shown by the fact that the
twenty-three man team took 19 pla-
ces which broke all records as far as
team competition goes. Coach Doh-
erty's charges snared six firsts, tied
for another, placed four seconds,
grabbed five thirds, four fourths and
one fifth and a tie for fifth. In doing
this, approximately 14 Wolverines
turned in their best performances of
the season.
Unknown Shines.
Of the comparatively unknowns
who came into their own in the meet,
Dick Forrestel, who had had only
three time trials in his so far brief
track career, showed that he is a
potentially fast quarter-miler. For-
restel; who was discovered by Coach
Chet Stackhouse just recently, was
taken to Chicago as a possible re-
placement in the mile relay for Will
Glas who had a slight leg injury.
After it was decided that Glas would
be able to run, however, Forrestel
was entered in the 440. He then
proved that he was not content to
run merely an automatic fifth, but
showed very well while beating out
David Macon of Indiana to place
fourth.
At the request of the Hume twins,
Ross and Bob, the first decision,
which was split between the judges
anyway, was reversed, making the
brothers co-owners of the Big Ten
mile crown. The two miscalculated
in their finish, but were only a scant
few inches apart when they reached
the tape in front of the judges. This
marks the fourth time this season
the twins have dead-heated for first
place in the mile run.
Barnard Gains Two Thirds
Dick Barnard turned in his best
showing of the year when he snared
six points by placing third in both
the half mile and mile runs. He has
been constantly slicing the time off
his running and may be appearing
in the Chicago Relays this coming
week-end.
Elmer Swanson officially became
the Big Ten hurdle king when he
topped the barriers both high and
low, beating out all his opponents
for first place. His defeat of Buddy
Young, who had beaten him to the

ead Heat in Mile Event ,
wire the week before, was final proof
that he deserves the number one
spot on the list of 1944 indoor hurd-
lers in the Conference.
Freshmen Show Promise
Julius Witherspoon and Fred Stol-
iker, both freshman members of the
squad, gave evidence of having a
shining future in Conference track
when they placed second in the 60-
yard dash and fourth in the two-mile
respectively. Witherspoon was clock-
ed in .06.3, beating out Ranis
Thomas, the Illinois speedster, who
finished third. Stoliker's time of
9:55 was the best time he has ever.
turned in in his life.
The mile relay quartet in winning
their specialty turned in the amaz-!
ingly fast time of 3 :23, which is
reputed to be two seconds faster
than any time recorded by other,
relay teams throughout the country.
Jim Pierce proved to be a stellar,
lead-off manrand Will Glas, Fred
Negus and Bob Ufer showed that
they possess a record-breaking com-
bination.
Some of the Wolverines will be
competing in the Chicago Relays
next Saturday, March 18, but as yet
no definite entries have been an-
nounced this early in the week. Bob
Ufer, who won his third successive
440 title, is a sure bet. The Hume
twins, Elmer Swanson, Dick Barnard
and someone from the sprint depart-
ment also will probably make the
trip.
Highlighting the entries will be
such stellar performers as pole vault
king, Ensign Cornelius Warmerdam,
miler Gil Dodds, who recently estab-
lished a new indoor record at that
distance, and Dave Albritton, na-
tional high jumping champion.

CoachaMatt Mann's varsity swim-
m ing team. which won the Big Ten
title at Evanston, Feb. 19, will try to
annex their second crown of the
year when they enter the National
Collegiate meet in New Haven, Conn.,
March 24 and 25.
The Wolverines came in second to
ehio State insthenationals and the
conference last year. However, they
have already dethroned the Buck-
eyes as Big Ten champions, and the
possibilities of retaining their na-
tional title are great.
Curtailed Squad Makes Trip
Michigan is weakened consider-
ably, as many of the Navy personnel ,
cannot make the trip because it
would take longer than the 48-hour
leave allowed them. Therefore, it
will be necessary to take a squad
composed entirely of civilians. The
Maize and Blue outfit, nevertheless,
will make a strong bid.
Coach Mann has not decided on
the members who will make the trip

as yet, but the Wolverines will only
have seven or eight representing
them this year, in contrast to other
years. when 16 mermen churned the
water under the colors of Michigan.
Merton Church, Chuck Fries, John
McCarthy, Bill Kogen and Gordon
Pulford are more than likely to get
the call.

nals being run off Friday, March 24,

ONE OF the longest winning streaks
in scholastic basketball was fin-
ally but firmly smashed last week,
when Parker High School tripped
Marshall, 40-35, in the Chicago Pub-
lic League junior playoffs after Mar-
shall had previously humbled 98
straight opponents.
The winning streak in itself is
bound to arouse interest, but what
makes it more interesting to Mich-
igan fans is the fact that the Mar-
shall coach is Lou Weintraub, a
former Wolverine athlete.
Weintraub played third base on
Michigan's nines in 1927-28-29, and
was a member of the Wolverine squad
that toured Japan in the latter year,
taking 14 out of 15 tilts with the
Nips' best squads.
Basketball Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan was on the Michigan team at
that time, too, and the Wolverines
chalked up a bit of a winning streak
themselves, capturing 19 straight in
1928 and '29.
While at Michigan, Weintraub
was a weak hitter but a star on
defense, and Coach Ray Fisher calls
him "one of the best players I've
ever worked with." Amazingly

enough, however, he never played
basketball here, but confined all
his activity to the diamond.
FOR THE next month only three
events will be on the docket for
Michigan fans until the baseball and
tennis seasons get under way in mid-
April: the NCAA swimming meet at
Yale, March 24-25, the NAAU swim-
ming meet here March 31-April 1,
and the Chicago relays at Chicago
next week-end.
However, the single event in Ann
Arbor, the NAAU meet, will be one
of the best of the year from the
spectators viewpoint. The feature
of the two-day meet, of course, will
be the free style events in which
three of the world's top swimmers,
Alan Ford of Yale, Bill Smith of
Great Lakes and Bill Prew, former-
ly of the Detroit A.C., clash for
honors.
Ford holds the world record in the
50-yard event of :50.1, Prew holds
the AAU record of :51 for the same
event, and Smith holds most of the
other free style records. Ford and
Smith will also clash in the 220 race,
and Smith will meet his former
teammate, Keo Nakama, in the 440.
