Swimmers Break Jinx
Agaist Buejaekets
Natators Win All Events but Diving Contests
In 50-34 Defeat of Powerful Sailor Team

Breaking the jinx which the Blue-
jackets of Great Lakes have held over
Matt Mann's swimming teams for the
past two years, the Michigan mermen
last Saturday handed Great Lakes a
crushing 50-34 defeat.
Losing only the diving events, in'
which Ullyses Lopez fought valiantly
against overwhelming odds to snare
a third place, and the 150-yard back-
stroke, in which Ed Fulkman and'
Bob Munson took second and third
places respectively, the Maize and
Blue swept the other seven events in
championship style.
Zimmerman Surprises1
The most surprising event of the
evening was Jack Zimmerman's per-
formnance in the 440 yard freestyle.

en a third place "to Captain Mert

Church Wins Two
Church again last week captured
first places in the 100 and 220 yard
freestyle races, and also sparked the
400 yard freestyle relay team to vic-
tory. His time in the 220 yard event,
2:19.2, was exceptionally fast, and it
represents an eleven second improve-
ment in the period of a little more
than three weeks.
Chuck Fries and Heinie Kessler,
freestyle and breaststroke men 're-
spectively, also showed up to good
advantage in the meet, with Fries
taking a first in the 50, a second in
the 100, and bolstering the 400 yard
freestyle relay team to a triumph,
while Kessler regained his supremacy
in the 200 yard breaststroke from
Ray Mondro who had beaten him
three weeks previously, and also took
care of the breaststroke leg of the
300 yard medley relay.
Ed Fulkman, who has taken over
the number two position in the Micha
igan backstroke division now that
Gordon Pulford is being used almost
exclusively in the freestyle events,
stepped briefly into the limelight by
beating out team-mate Bob Munson
for second place in the 150 yard back-
stroke event.I
