Triumph Over Buckeyes Rounds Out
Perfect Record I(n Conference Meets
Finishing their regular schedule of Conference dual meets with an
unbroken string of victories due to their 4-41 triumph over Ohio State
last Saturday, the Michigan swimming team is now looking forward to the
National Inter-Collegiates, two weeks , hence.
Coach Mann was pleased with the showing against the powerful
Buckeye squad which entered the meet with three events, the diving, the 220.
and the 440 freestyle, all sewed up.
As was expected, pint-sized Keao

Nakama and Seymour Schlanger of
Ohio, registered first and second
places in the 220 and 440, while MVaize
and Blue's Charlie Fries had to be
satisfied with thirds in both dis-
Captain Mert Church cameE
through once more in his two spe-
cialties, the 50 and 100 freestyle,t
as he tied Nakama for individual1

Wolverines snagged were Kessler's
Goggin-Plan To
Do Away With
Gold Standard
PGA Will Attempt To '
Aid 'Common Man'
CHARLOTTE, N. C., Mar. 19-(A)-
The Goggin Plan to devalue the
"Gold Dust Twins" of golf was ac-
cepted in principle today by PGA
officials here, but no changes in the
distribution of prize money will be
made during the current winter tour.
President Ed Dudley of the Pro-+
fessional Golfers' Association said
after a huddle with Willie Goggin
of White Plains, N. Y., spokesman
for more than 30 petitioning pros,
that beginning April 15, war bond
prizes would be revised so that the
higher scorers among the first 20 in
each tournament would receive
More than $200,000 in war bonds
will be awarded insome 15 summer
events now being arranged.
Goggin's proposal for the common
man to receive more of the gravy,
submitted to the PGA yesterday,
called for a 30 per cent reduction of
first, second and third place money,
usually $1,000, $700 and $550 in a
$5,000 tournament, with the differ-
ence spread over the other 17 places.
A proportional adjustment would be
made in meets having a greater total
Goggin's complaint centered on
the earnings of the "Gold Dust
Twins," Byron Nelson, who won
$47,000 in bonds last year and
$15,000 this season, and Jug Mc-
Spaden who has amassed earnings
of around $36,000 in two years,
while a number of touring pros
barely made expense money.

200 yard breaststroke, and the two
relays, the 300 yard medley and the
400 yard freestyle.
Last Saturday's meet marked the
sixth consecutive win which Michi-
gan relay teams have amassed in
each of the distances, and Mann is
contemplating taking his two relay
teams to New York for the annual
National AAU's, held April 7.
What may be termed the upset
of the evening was the 150 yard
backstroke event. Bob Munson,
Wolverine regular in that distance,
was unable to compete, as Al Den-
nis of OSU copped the number one
Bill Potter, a V-12 student at
Michigan, who has been plugging
along all season in comparative ob-
scurity, notched up his first inter-
collegiate point markers, by finish-
ing close to Dennis' heels ahead of
team-mate Gordon Pulford.
The yeoman of the Buckeye meet
can be easily named Ralph Chubb,
gridiron hero last fall. Chubb
took a third in the diving event, a
thir"d in the 200 yard breaststroke,
and topped off his activities of the
night, by swimming on the win-
ning freestyle relay team.
The over-all consensus of athletic
opinion points to the fact that the
Ohio State meet was merely a tune-
up for the much more important Col-
legiate meet, to be held at Ann Ar-
bor, March 30 and 31.

Six Men Expected To
Reportito Camp Today
EVANSVILLE, Ind., Mar. 19.-OP)
-With the last arrival deadline just
24 hours away, the Detroit Tigers
counted their first infielder on deck
today as intermittent rain washed
out the first drill in five, days of
their spring baseball training camp.
Eddie Borom, 126-year-old second
sacer from Wichita, Kas., rolled into
town as the 15th Tiger to report to
manager Steve O'Neill.
Nineteen Yet To Come
Seven more infielders and six out-
fielders are slated to arrive by to-
morrow. Pitchers Rufe Gentry, For-
rest Orrell, Bob Gillespie and Walter
Wilson and catchers James (Hack)
Miller and Al Unser have been over-
due since March 15.
O'Neill's son-in-law, shortstop
Jimmy (Skeeter) Webb, acquired
from the White Sox last fall, sent
along advance word that he would
be here for the Tuesday drill. The
forecast was for clear and cooler

That's the pointed advice of an-

"What Haegg has done on the in-

what one should expect after 23 days

in an interview during a brief visit
to the scene of his championship-
moulding training grounds.
Haegg Is Improving
"I haven't seen Haegg run since,
hes been here, but I would say he
showed improvement in his latest
meet over the showing he made in
his first start. He seems to be get-
tin gacquainted with the boards now.
"It stands to reason that such a
great runner ought to be able to make
a good showing before long. Don't
sell him short. Remember long John

somewhat similar to Haegg's eight

ing an unconditioned rival."
"But," he added, "I'm done with

future will be with high school kids."
