Committee Also Decides
On District Five Choice

Ohio Swimmers Picked
In Big Ten Title Defense

NEW YORK - (A) - The
N.C.A.A. Basketball Tournament
picture was clarified somewhat
yesterday with the selection of
Ohio State for one berth and the
decision to pick the Big Seven
Conference champions for ano-
Ohio State's nomination for the
district four berth was a foregone
conclusion. The Buckeyes, ranked
second nationally and winners of

the Big Ten title, officially w5.e
named yesterday by the district
four committee, headed by Doug
Mills of the University of Illinois.
PACED by Dick Schnittker, a
- great all-around player, the Buck-
eyes won the Western Conference
flag with an 11-1 record and post-
ed an 18-3 slate for the season.
The decision to pick the Big
' Seven champs for the district
five spot was announced by
Bruce Drake, chairman of the
area's selection committee and
coach at the University of Ok-
Normally there is a playoff be-

tween the Big Seven winner and
the Missouri Valley kings. But
Bradley, No. 1 team of the nation
and Missouri Valley titlist, ac-
cepted a place in the National
Tournament in New York, and
the committee apparently figured
that was enough.
NEBRASKA (8-2) currently is
pacing the Big Seven Race with
Kansas State (7-2) right on the
Cornhusker's heels. Nebraska is
ranked 16th nationally and Kan-
sas State 12th.
Holy Cross already has been
chosen for.the district one posi-
tion. The other districts shape
up this way:
District two-Duquesne favored,
with St. John's, LaSalle, Syracuse
and Princeton among the contend-
District three-Kentucky and
North Carolina State favored.
District six-Between Arizona
and Southwest Conference champ-
District seven - Wyoming or
Denver of the Skyline six.
District eight-Probably UCLA
or Washington State of the Paci-
fic Coast Conference. Goes to the
P.C.C. champion.
Meanwhile the N.I.T. had three
of its 14 teams in the fold, Brad-
ley , Duquesne, and St. Johns.

Depth and balance may be the
deciding factors for Mike Peppe's
favored Ohio State swimming
squad in this week's Western con-
ference meet in Ann Arbor.
As it stands, the Buckeyes fig-
ure to grab a substantial number
of first places. But the real
strength of the boys from Colum-
bus may well lie in their ability
to capture the second and third
places which a less-heavily man-
ned team can't hope to take.

Fonville To Meet Top Foes
In Conference Track Meet


Purdue Favored in Five Way
Race for Conference Mat Title

"We can finish anywhere from
first to fifth," was Coach Cliff
Keen's comment when asked about
Michigan's chances in the Big Ten
wrestling championships, Friday
and Saturday in Iowa City, Iowa.
-Keen takes his seven man squad'
to Iowa City tomorrow with hopes
of finishing on top of a five team
heap in the final standings.
PURDUE, defending Conference
champions, will be favored to take
their third straight championship
but Wolverines, along with Ohio
State, Illinois and Minnesota could
very easily upset the Boilermakers
and take the crown in a close
Three outstanding sophs, Lar-
ry Nelson, Bill Stapp and Dave
Space, form the nucleus for
Keen's hopes of bringing the
trophy back to Ann Arbor.
All three will be underdogs in
their various weight divisions.

tenders in his battle to win the

Stapp, previously rated as only
a dark horse for the 155-pound'
crown, showed his mettle last
weekend when he defeated Bryce
Keough, defending Conference
titleholder, in the Ohio State
meet. He will probably have to
do it again at Iowa City to take
the title.
Other potential point getters
for the Wolverines in the big meet
are Jim Smith and Jack Powers.
Powers, 165-pound champ last
year, wrestled at 175 this season
and was only able to compile a .500
record in dual meet competition.
Keen plans to shift Powers back
to 165 for the championships and
Powers rates an outside choice to
defend his title.

first places. The Ohioans piled
up enough place points, however,
to far outdistance the second-
place Iowa squad, 68 to 51.
Again this season the Buck-
eyes should place men in almost
every event. In the diving they
have thenfour first-place per-
formers from last season back-
Harlan, Calhoun, Billingsley and
Simpson. In the backstroke the
Peppemen can expect points
from at least two swimmers -
Jack Taylor and Bill Sonner.

backstroke distance than at the
usual 150-yard length.
Another factor in the favor
of Matt Mann's men will be the
home pool advantage - though
this can be easily overemphasiz-
ed. The familiarity of the home
pool and the large partisan
crowd can help a swimmer to a
certain extent - but in the long
run relative abilities are the saf-
er arguing points.
As for the other contenders for
the conference crown, Iowa and
Purdue seem to be the only squads
with strength enough to make an
appreciable difference in the meet.
THURSDAY night's only event,
the 1500 meters, shapes up as a
one-man race. Although ' Michi-
gan's Matt Mann III cannot be
counted, out, Ohio State's Jack
Taylor, the class of the confer-
ence in the 440, is even stronger
in the longer distances.
In 1948 Taylor defeated Olym-
pic champion Jimmy McLane in
the National AAU meet. From all
indications, Taylor is even strong-
er this year as a sophomore at
Columbus, and may crack the Big
Ten record for the distance.
