SEATTLE, Wash.-March 29-
It was the same old story of too
many divers tonight, as Ohio State
retained their NCAA swimming
championship by defeating sec-
ond place Michigan, 66 to 39.
For the second night in a row
the Buckeyes made a clean sweep
of the diving with Miller Ander-
son taking his second title of the
meeting. Bruce Harlan was sec-
ond, Jim Strong, third, Jack Cal-
houn, fourth and Ralph Buratti
edged Wolverine Alex Canja for
fifth. Gil Evans other Michigan
diver failed to qualify for the fin-
als by only .61 of a point.
Anderson Named Outstanding
Anderson was named outstand-
ing swimmer of the season im-
mediately after the diving and
was presented with trophy right
after he took his second title.
Dick Weinberg proved to the
nation that he is the outsstanding
short distance freestyler in the
country tonight as he copped his
second national title; this time in
the 100-yard freestyle finals.
Weinberg was clocked in :52.2,
as he touched out the Hawaiian
flash, Halo Hirose of Ohio State.
This added to the 50-yard crown
Nhe took last night and gave the
sensational sophomore star re-
venge over Hirose who defeated
6 him in the Conference meet. He
also swam the freestyle lap on the
Wolverine 300-yard medley relay

team last night as they annexed<
the national title in 2:54.4.
Verdeur Cracks Record
Joe Verdeur of little LaSalle '
College in Philadelphia continued
to better the world's record in the
200-yard breastroke. Tonight he
was clocked in 2:16.8, or almost Y
three seconds better than his ac-
cepted world's record. However,
last week in the Eastern Inter-,
collegiates he was clocked n 2:16.4,
Bob Sohl took second behind Ver-
deur to push Michigan into a DicK WEINBERG
short-lived lead. At this juncture-
they led the Buckeyes 35-32._
Bill Smith copped the 440 free-
style, his second title of the meet- h e Wt'Szi i e ,

of Wolverine Gus Stager in the {
