Swimmers Are Favored To
Mermen Seek Third Straight Win;
Quar tet Aims at 400-Yard Relay Mark
By CLARK' BAKER
Michigan's swimming team will
shoot for its third straight win of
the season at 3 p.m. today when it
clashes with Purdue's natators at
the Sports Building pool.
The dual will be the fifth between
the two schools with the visiting
Boilermakers seeking their initial tri-
umph over the Wolverines. Purdue
has been beaten this season by Great
Lakes, 52-32, and that defeat coupled
with Michigan's split with the Blue-
jackets makes the Wolverines the fa-
vorite this afternoon.
Relay Team Eyes Mark
Feature event of the meet will be
an attempt by Michigan's all-fresh-
man 400-yard relay team to break the
National Collegiate freshman mark
of 3:34.7, set by Yale in 1940. The
quartet of Chuck Moss, Dave Tittle;
Matt Mann, III, and Dick Weinberg
has turned in 3:36.6 time already this
Mann will also put his unbeaten
record in the 220-yard freestyle
event on the line in what may be the
best race on the card. The Wolverine
distance star will oppose Purdue's ace,
Dick Hennigan. The Boilermaker
star smashed an old Purdue mark in
the 220 last week against Great
Adams Swims 440
Hennigan will also swim the 440-
yard freestyle event for the invaders
along with Morgan Byers, all-Amer-
ican freestyler for Purdue last year.
Opposing this duo will be Michigan's
up-and-coming Neville Adams. Adams
scored a second to Mann last Satur-
day in the State AAU meet in Detroit.
The Maize and Blue divers will
face some stiff competition in Major
Willis, a discharged veteran who has
done yeoman work for Purdue this
year. To oppose Willis, Coach Matt
Mann will pick two of his three aces,

Coach Olsen has failed to announce,
his starting lineup as yet, but it isI
believed that no major changes are
in the offing. Olsen, whose 1944-45
record reads 14 wins as against four
losses, is reported as being extremely

Michigan's second count of the tilt
came a few minutes later on a per-
fectly executed play. Gord MacMil-
lan slipped the puck to Al Renfrew
who charged past the Toronto line
But this did not end the barrage
of Toronto goals, as Bob Henry and
Halder both tallied to bring the mid-,
dle period to a close with the Domin-
ion squad out front, 8-2.
The final stanza was a hard fought
one. The Wolverine defense tight-
ened up allowing the Blues a single
tally, while Gacek made one of the
best plays of the game when he
counted the Maize and Blue score on
a solo dash.
