Weinberg smashed the 150-yard
medley relay mark yesterday as
the Maize and Blue Mermen bat-
tered a weak Wayne University
team into oblivion to the tune of
t a 58-26 pasting.
Wolverines took eight out of
the nine events and every man
entered managed to garner a
place. Hal Krause was the only
Tartar to finish first as he nosed
out Bruce Witherspoon and Bill
Crispin in the 50-yard freestyle.
Crack Old Record
The medley trio, originally
scheduled to swim the 300-yard
event, chose to take a crack at
Yale's 150-yard mark and suc-
ceeded in lowering the standard
to 1:18.0. Yale's trio of Alan
Ford, McFadden and Smith estab-
lished the former world's mark of
1:18.8 in 1943. In this record-
breaking attempt Harry Holiday
also added another laurel to his
growing list as his time for the
50-yard backstroke leg was :26.6,
good enough for a new American
Gus Stager took the 220-yard
freestyle with plenty to spare in
2:16.5 to give him two victories
this weekend. Friday night he
copped the Michigan AAU 220 ti-
tle beating the cream of the state
distance crop. Tom Coates took
third behind Bob Clark of Wayne.
O'Neill Wins Dive
Tom O'Neill nosed out Tartars
Bob Knorr and Joe Mracna to
take the one meter low board div-
ing and Wally Stewart copped his
specialty, the 440-yard freestyle,
in the comparatively slow time
of 5:04.7.
The medley relay team each
came back during the course of the
rout to easily cop their three
specialties. Weinberg edged team-
mate Jay Sanford to capture the
100-yard freestyle in :24.6.

Jack Weisenburger, who was

to the shortfield this campaign
to strengthen the inner workings

a drum until Paul White hooked
in his only field goal of the game

lead, 19-15, in the last few min-
utes, an obstacle which the Sig
Eps could not surmount. White
and Howard Wikel slowed the
tempo down to a fast walk in an
attempt to freeze the ball.
Then on a wild scramble under-
neath the Sig Ep basket, Bob
Dayoe tipped in another two
points to pickle the ATO victory.
Center Sam Massie whittled the
lead by sinking a free throw, and
making good another charity toss
just as the game ended.
Twenty personal fouls were
called with the Sig Eps collecting
eleven of them. Guard Harry An-
derson tallied six points for the
Sig Eps, and generallyskept his
fraternity five in the running
with his cool work on defense with
