(Editor's Note: This is the first of
three articles covering the competi-
tion that Michigan will face in
the forthcoming Western Conference
Swimming championships. Tomorrow
the 20-yard freestyle, both diving
events, and the 3(X-yard medley re-
lay will be covered)
Having swept through a strenu-
ous dual meet season with miracu-
lous ease, the Wolverine swimming
team now faces the task of re-
4gaining the Western Conference
crown it lost to Ohio State in 1946.
But it will be no easy task
for Coach Matt Mann's crew,
since the Buckeyes still have a
strong club and the other teams
have individual stars that might
bite into the Maize and Blue to-
tal. Thus, when the Conference
meet rolls around Thursday at
the 50-yard pool in Iowa City,
Michigan may have a difficult
time in trying to wrest the title
from Ohio State.
Thursday night the finals of the
1500-meter freestyle will open the
meeting, and here the Wolverines
have their greatest concentration
of strength. Matt .Mann III is the
leading Michigan hope having
turned in a 19:52.6 clocking in
time trials this year. Gus Stager,
Johnny McCarthy and Jay San-
ford have all turned in timings of
better than 21 minutes.
Chief competition in this
event will come from the de-
fending champ, Bill lleusner of
Northwestern, who won the
event in 19:5. last year. Tom-
my Gastineau of Indiana is also
another threat as is Lenny Adell
of Ohio State.
But from the records of previous
times Michigan can look forward
to a substantial lead at the end of
the first night's festivities. And
then after a strenuous day of pre-

liminaries, the second night's list
of five finals might spell the dif-
ference between victory and defeat
for Coach Mann's squad.
The first final of Friday night
will be the 50-yard freestyle, and
here the outside strength of other
clubs may begin to tell. Wally Ris
and Erv Straub of Iowa are re-
garded as excellent sprinters as
well as Keith Carter of Purdue and
Don Benson of Minnesota. The
oft-repeated race between Michi-
gan's Dick Weinberg and Ohio's
Halo Hirose will have some mighty
fine supporting players who are li-
able to steal the show from these
stellar performers.
Michigan is deep in every
event and there may very pos-
sibly be more than one Michi-

should be all Harry Holiday, for

duo of Bob deGroot and Bill Ro-

threats and the challenge of Duane
Draves, Dick Maine. and Harry
Griesbach of Iowa cannot be over-
looked. Art Johnson, a consistent
1:40 backstroker will be the other
Wolverine entered in this event.
Bob Sohl, another "sure-
thing" in his specialty, the 200-

the strongest bid to dethrone
him from Carter of Purdue. 'the

Sohl to the fastest time of his

Bill Upthegrove stand excellent
chances of making the finals, and
their main opposition should come
from Earl Trumble of Ohio State,
Dave Lake of Iowa, and Al Craig
of Northwestern.-

The Wolverines came closer to

Looked Close
If everything went right, they
figured, only 1% points would sep-
arate Michigan, Illinois and Ohio
State. That's how close it looked
after the prelims.
Everything didn't go right how-
ever--the unpredictable happened
more than once and Ohio State
crawled out the winner.
Two men, Lloyd Duff and Jerry
Cogswcll put the Buckeyes on top.
In the clutch both performed bet-

ter than they ever had before. In

Cogswell ran a full second and a

the big difference. He went 13

through as expected Illinois would
have won going away.
As far as Michigan is concerned,
coach Ken Doherty is quick tc
point out that he is making no ex-!
cuses. They finished fourth and
that is all there is to it.
Actually the Wolverine's per-
formance was nearly champion -
ship caliber. Herb Barten's vic-
tories in the mile and the half re-
assured everyone that he is among
the country's top three middle dis-
tance men.
Johnson Ran Well
Val Johnson's great perform-
ance in the quarter elevated him
to a distinguished circle of Michi-
gan trackmen. His 48.9 in the 440
was the third fastest ever run in-
doors by a Michigan quarter-miler.

sure thing to win the mile relay
and had it not been for the baton

for the Maize and Blue, was at-
tempting to pass Bill Whittaker

at men Kept from Conference
CrownbReferee's Judgment



Michigan should be the new Big
Nine wrestling champions; any
Conference coach will tell you so.
The only thing that kept the
crown from the Wolverines was a
referee's judgment as to the legal-
ity of Captain Bob Betzig's much
used cradle hold. Betzig, who
pinned two men previously in the
tourney with the same hold, was
twice penalized one point in his
match with Ken Marlin of Illi-
As the Wolverine captain was
applying the sure-pin hold,
Marlin complained that he was
being choked. Betzig was given
two points for a near-fall while
at the same time being penalized
one point for use of ,an illegal
In the third. period Betzig again
pinned Marlin with the same hold
and again he was penalized one
point, but this time without gain-
ing two points for a near fall.
Marlin clinched the match
late in the third period when he
received two more points foi a
reversal, winning 7-4. Coach
Cliff Keen vigorously protested
the referee's decision but to no
Had Betzig been allotted the

155-pound championship he would
have given Michigan three more
team points; two additional ones
for a first place and one for the
pinning. This would have put the
Wolverines on top with 26 points
and dropped Illinois to fourth with
Michigan had to fight for every
point it received.
Only after calling the wres-
tling rules authorities in Colo-
rado was Keen able to prove to
the officials that his team de-
served another point for a
match forfeited to 114'A-pound-
er Gil Ross in the consolation
finals. This bolstered Michigan's
score to 23, enough for a three-
way tie for second place.
Michigan's scoring went like
this: Jim Smith garnered six
points for bis first place in the
136-pound division; Bob Betzig
and George Curtis each received
four points for second place
berths; Bob Johnston was award-
ed two counters for a third place
in the 128 pound class, and Gil
Ross, Maurie Smith and Hugh

fourth place honors, plusRoss'
