In their last dual Conference tweet of the 1945 season, the ]Maize and
Blue swimming squad will face Ohio State University today, at Columrbu.
in what promises to be no more than a final ttaie-up for the Initer-Colle-
giates, two weeks hence.
Riding on the crest of the Big Ten Ch~anmpionship, in which Mat
Mann's boys collected five out of nine first places over the seven other
major Midwestern college; last Saturday, the Michigan natators are expected,
according to pure statistics, to triumph over the Buckeyes handily.

Another highlight of the Chicago Relays this Saturday which will have

G The other two events generallyk
conceded to the Ohio Staters, are
the 220 and 440 freestyle distances.
Keo Nakama, the Hawaiian speed-
ster, and Seymour Schlanger, the
New York schoolboy, placed numbers
one and two respectively in these
events in the BSig Tren tourney, and
it is to be doubted whether they cant
Kbe beaten.
Opposing them will probably be
Charlie Fries, Gordon Pulford, or
maybe Mert Church. If Mann jug-
gles h is line-up around to put Church.
in the 220 and 440, and leave Fries
for the shorter distances, the compe-
tition between Church and Nakama
jmight p ossibly result in a much keen-
er race.
The rest of the events are fairly
well catalogued as to the point totals.,
Mann summarized them completely
before he went to Columbus yester- '
dlay as follows:

and I had all the bad luck. One- of the bowl veered out on me twice, making

post when the starter gave us a quick gun. Nor was it had enough that
I: drew the orutsIde lane, something that seenms ito:,happ1en 1.o me more than
it does to anybody else."
These reasons by Herbert for losing were no dboubt authentic, but it
was always by impression that an. established athleteiof thre calib~er of Herbert
could. take defeats as gracefully as he could victories. After all, this is the
real test of a true athlete and it could easily be the distinction that is
drawn between a good athlete and a great; one. That Herbert was disgusted
and bitter is readily apparent, but that lie sh~nild express his emrotions on
such an impulse was rather purzling.
His defeat at the hands of Harris did not detract from his previous
records, ti'or discredit him in any way. It merely focussed attention on
the rise of a new star among the middle distance r-unners.
When Herbert opened the carp p aign with a triumph in the Mel
Sheppard 600 of the Millr'ose Meet, there were not protests heard from
Harris, who, because of his inexperience, stumbled and fell to the track
a -few yards from the starting line.
Nor were there any complaints the following week at Boston
Gardenu when Herbert had the better of the racing luck in winning the.
tilt with a 1:15 mark.

Hence, this match promises to he a wild and wooly affair, with both
contestants ready to go all out in an effort to establish their supremacy over
each other' and with eye on past events, it would not be at all surprising
to this scr'ibe if Harris once more turned the tables on Herbert.
