Michigan's powerful swimming
team smashed to a new world's
record in the 300 yard medley re-
lay while squelching Iowa's bid
for an upset victory with a 56-28
triumph last night at the I-M
Clipping :1.4 seconds off their
old record of 2:50.5, the medley re-
lay team composed of Holiday,
Schl, and Weinberg put the Wol-
verines out in front in the first
event never to be headed.
Holiday Sets Pace
Back stroker Holiday went his
100 yard lap in :58.5 to pile up a
bit of a lead for breast stroker
Sohl who did :59.5 for his share
of the 300 yards. Dick Weinberg
then anchored the team home
with a :51.1 effort and the new
world's record.
In swamping the Hawkeyes,
Matt Mann's powerhouse swept
seven firsts, and five seconds los-
ing only in the 50 and 100 yard'
free style to Wally Ris, holder of
five sprint records in the NAAU
and the American record in the
100 yard dash.
Ris Takes 50
In the 50 yard sprint, Ris lived
up to his reputation when he came
home a touch ahead of Dave Tit-
tle and Bill Crispin, Michigan's
entries in the race.
In the 100, the duel between
Weinberg (NCAA title holder at
100 yards) and Wally Ris turned
out to be all that was expected of
it. After taking three turns to-
gether, Ris snuck in ahead of
Weinberg in the final ten yards
with his long reach proving the
margin of victory and his time of

staged another of their shoulder-
to-shoulder battles in the 220 yard
grind with Stager fighting off
Mann's closing rush to stroke un-
der the finish line in 2.11.3, a nose
ahead of his Michigan rival.
Evans Takes Diving
In the diving event it was Mich-
igan again as Gil Evans and Ralph
Trimborn captured win and place
slots from the Iowa entry of Dave
Brockway and Bill McDonald.
Evans diving skill was worth
120.26 points and Trimborn got
his second nosing out Iowa's
Brockway 108 points to 105.1.
Wolverines Take Backstroke
Captain Harry Holiday contin-
ued his winning ways with a com-
paratively easy triumph in the 150
yard back stroke. Holiday coasted
in to the winners' circle in 1:33.4
with a pair of Hawkeyes, Duane
Draves and Dick Maine taking
care of the second and third place
Bob Sohl was again superb as
he left the field in the first 50
yards and went on to win the 200
yard breast stroke in the fine time
of 2:18.7, considering that there

was no one close by to chase him

McCarthy Wins 440
McCarthy and Sanford put on
one of those Stager-Mann duels
for 400 yards but McCarthy pulled
away in the home stretch to gain
the decision over his teammate in
5:08.5. Iowa's Paul Hutinger cross-
ed the line in third place ahead of
teammate Henry Griesbach.
Winding up another pleasant
night for Matt Mann was the per-
formance of his 400 yard relay
team which featured Tommy
Coates, Bill Crispin, Bill Kogen,
and Dave Tittle.
Lead Built Up
Coates and Crispin built up a
nice lead and Kogen and Tittle
kept their Iowan opponents at a
safe distance to bring the team
home in 3:34.
Again it was the all-around
depth of the Michigan squad plus
the excellent performances of the
'Big Three," Holiday, Sohl, and
Weinberg, that piled the points
up on the score board in such con-
vincing fashion.
Fine Diving
Evans was especially good to-

After tonight's brilliant per-

the one question that was in ev-

this Wolverine team go this year?"

may well give the answer to their
fans when they travel to Colum-
bus for their showdown dual meet
with Ohio State's defending Big
Nine champs.

The meet wasn't quite so close l

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Feb. 21--(A')
-University of Illinoils basketball
players ran wild here tonight, de-
feating ail undermanned Purdue
squad 98-54 before a capacity
crowd in Huff Gymnasium.
Illinois went on a sizzling shoot-
ing spree in the second half, bag-
ging 24 of 52 shots for almost
a .500 percentage.
The Illini scoring, approaching
the modern Conference record of
103 points tallied by Iowa against
Chicago in 1944, was evenly di-
vided. Walt Kersulis and Bill
Erickson set the pace with 16
points each, while Jim Marks col,
lected 14.
Van Anderson bagged his 13
points in the last four minutes..
Purdue made a game of it in
the early stages,, thrice knotting
the count at 8, 21 and 26, but the
Illini then steamed to their 16-
point halftime margin and there-
after made it a walkaway.
Illinois had the previous run-
ne-ip total to Iowa's record 103
points with a 92 to 25 win over
Chicago in 1943.
The Boilermakers were led by
Dick Axness and Howard Williams
with 12 points each.
