Michigan Mermen To Make
id for Natimnal AAU Title

Net Prospects Good-Dixon

Michigan mnernwen will seek t>o
add the National AAU crown to
their Western Conference and
NCAA titles tlis weekend, as the
annual meet gets uderway at the
Payne Whitney pools in New Tia v-
en, Conn.
Although CaCh MatI Mann Is
officially declared thatthe season
~as Over and th( ia Al's world
be an added trip for the team, the
swimmers are regarded as strong
threats to again dethrone Ohio
Rules Differ
Amateur Athletic Union rules
differ from Collegiate regulations
in two majorwa. One is that
anytamateur, be he in college,
prep school, high school or a
graduate, may participate. The
other is the ruling that a swimmer
may compete in any number of
events and a team may enter any
number of men in a particular
These rulings give Ohio State a
decided advantage, and also may
seriously curtail the Michigan
point total,
Six Drivers For OS1U
Ohio State has entered six divers
in each of the two events, and
might possibly enter their ace, Bill
Smith, in the 220, 440, and 100-
yard freestyles as well as the med-
ley and freestyle relay.

Halo Hirose, the other outstand-
ing Buckeye swimmer can also
compete in the 100, 220 and the
two relays. This gives Mike Peppe
and his team a strong advantage.
Yale's Bob Kiphuth, taking ad-
vantage of the rule allowing non-
college men to compete, will enter
his team and other stars as the,
New Haven Swimming Club. He'll
have, in addition to ace back-
strokers Allen Stack and Al Rat-'
kiewich, such former greats as
Alan Ford, world's record holder
in the 100-yard free-style.
Outstanding Stars
Other outstanding stars out of
college include Jimmy McLane,
outstanding middtle-dstance
swimmer from Phillips' Andover1
Academy and Brewster McFadden,
freestyle sprinter from the New
York AC.
One other change in the pro-
gram has been made-that of
substituting a 300-yard individ-
ual medley for the 50-yard free-
style sprint. Here Joe Verdeur of
LaSalle College, who was voted
the "Outstanding Swimmer of
1948," is favored and his strong-
est competition is expected from
Michigan's Captain Harry Holi-

"Wolveine tennis prospect:
look pretty good this year, maybe
evenbetter than last season," said
Coach Bob Dixon yestelrday, dis-
cussing his team's prospects for
the coming season.
The net squad, which finished
third in last year's competition

H showed improved skill in a
recent tournament match in lew
York whlen lie pushed Sid
Schwartz, one of the nation's most
promising young amateurs. Al-
though Paton dropped the match.
he turned in a better perform-
ance than he showed last year
by crowding Schwartz to the limit.
Otto Returns
Leading the attack with Paton
will be another returning player,
Fred Otto, who helped consid-
erably to pace the Wolverine of-
fense last season.
Moved up from last year's
fourth place slot to number three:
is Captain Bill Mikulich. Just re-
turned from a successful basket-
ball season, Mikulich has had little
opportunity for practice.
Holding down the fourth rating
is Jack Hersch, number one man
for the Wolverines during the
1945-46 season. Located in the
fifth and sixth spots will be Dick
Lincoln and Gordon Naugle re-
spectively, to complete the Wol-
verine net battery.
Temporary Ratings
Substitutes on the trip will be
Don McKay and Dick Leerman.
These ratings aren't permanent
for the season, as they are only
Dixon's observations on the indoor
performances of his squad.
Some changes may occur after
the season gets under way and the
players hit their playing stride.
Southern Trip
The Wolverines will leave Ann
Arbor Sunday, April 4, and meet
the netters of the University of
Virginia in Charlottesville, Tues-
day, April 6. From there the squad
goes to Duke for a match Wed-
nesday. It then takes on Wake
Forest and North Carolina Thurs-
day and Friday.
This four-game route will end
their schedule for Spring vacation.
.They will return to Ann Arbor

to practice for their first home
match. April 24, against the tennis
squad of Western Michigan.
Thirteen Matches
The team will have a thirteen-
game schedule this season which
finishes on Memorial Day, May
30, when the Big Nine champion-
ships will be held at Northwestern
The netters have been practic-
ing over the winter, using the I-
M indoor courts and have been
restricted so far this Spring by
the unstable weather to very in-
frequent use of the outdoor clay
couis ).
Michigan's tennis prospects will
appear much more aetinite after
the Southern jaunt beginning at
the end of the week.

At the age of 75, Dr. George A. May felt that the excitement en-
gendered at Michigan Stadium last fall would be too much for him.
"I've got to watch out nor my ticker," he would tell friends.
Actually, he enjoyed participation in sports more than the
mere witnessing of them. Up until the time he retired in 1942 at the
lively age of 70, he performed on the parallel bars with exceptional
skill. His daily program of physical exercise would generally consist
of a short, bris4 workout on gymnastic apparatus and a half-mile jog
on either the indoor or cinder track.
A graduate of Yale, he came here in 1901 to take over as medi-
c., examiner and gym instructor. The same year Fielding H.
Yost left Stanford on the West Coast to become Michigan's foot-
ball coach. A long- intimate friendship blossomed between the two.
"Doc" officiated at every major track meet in the Midwest. His
favorite advice to athletes: "Let's make it a fair race. All off together.
Make it look pretty."
He loved his work at Michigan. Thousands of his Michigan friends
were grieved to learn that the wiry, little man had passed away Sun-
