Wolverine Mermen Victorious
In Second Conference Clash

Michigan Sextet Cagers Down Hoosiers
Defeats strong

AP

Title Hopes Rise for
Michigan Tankmen
Paced by the stellar performances
of Captain Mert Church and Chuck
Fries, the Michigan swimming team
continued on its road to Conference
honors last Saturday by defeating a
sorely outclassed Purdue squad, 51-
33, at Lafayette, Ind.
The Wolverine crew, registering
its second consecutive Big Ten win
of the season, in as many starts,
captured seven out of nine first
places, dropping only the 50-yard
freestyle event and the fancy div-
ing contest.
Commenting on these successful
results, Coach Matt Mann, Maize and
Blue swimming mentor, stated with
a satisfied smile, "The boys are all
improving rapidly and the team is
whipping itself into championship
form."
Top honors of the evening go to
Fries and Church, Michigan stars of
long standing. These two stalwarts,
both Big Ten title holders, sparked
the team to victory by clinching two
firsts and two second places between
them, while Fries sewed up the free-
style relay for the Wolverine crew.
- Captain Church again demon-
strated his expert ability by garner-
ing winner's berths in both the 100
and 220-yard freestyle tilts. In the
former clash he churned the dis-
tance in :52.5, the fastest Confer-
ence time registered this season.
Team-mate Fries followed closely
on Church's heels to clinch sec-
ond place for the Maize and Blue,
and add an additional three points
to the Wolverine's score.
Church's time, 2:21.3 in the 220,
was about two seconds slower than
his performance in the Northwest-
ern meet, but was sufficient to best
Purdue's contestant, Bob Freeman.
Wolverine John Zimmerman, also
competing in this event, placed for:

the third straight time this season
by clinching the remaining berth.
Victory in the 400-yard freestyle
relay can be attributed to the suc-
cessful efforts of Fries, Breen, Hig-
gins, and Zimmerman, swimming
the first three legs, all performed
admirably, but were matched stroke
for stroke by the Boilermakers.
Fries, starting his 100-yard anchor
leg even-up with the Purdue stal-
wart, churned the distance in
:53.3, his fastest time of the season,
to capture the event by a comfort-
able four yards.
In the backstroke event, Michigan
men, Bob Munson and Ed Fulkman
hooked up in a hotly contested duel,
with Munson finally getting the nod
over his team-mate. Coach Mann,
yountipg on the success of these twot
tankmen, kept the Maize and Blue's
number one backstroker, Gordon Pul-
ford, out of this clash and saved him
for the gruelling 440 freestyle. The1
Coach's strategy clicked, and, Pulford
came through'with a smashing tri-
umph in 5:19.1.
Heini Kessler turned in his usual
stellar performance in the 100-yard:
breaststroke leg of the medley relay.
He was not entered in the 200-yardI
breaststroke because Coach Mann de-
sired to give some of the younger
team members a chance to demon-
strate their ability.
Coach Mann's judgment proved
correct when Frank Anderson, Mich-
igan's sophomore entrant, took first'
place honors in that event and Ralph
Chubb, ex-football star, grabbed the
third place slot.
Although Boilermakers Ted Bow-
er and Jack Montgomery placedE
first and second, in that order, to
garner eight points for Purdue in
the fancy diving contest, battling
Ulysses Lopez clinched third for
the lMlaize and Blue. This diminu-
tive Ecuadorean stalwart has im-
proved considerably since the be-
ginning of the season, and Coach
Mann is expecting big things from
him in the near future.
