The Baron 'of the Bluegrass is
not one to spout optimism when
there's chance to look at the dark

the Illini, he said, because his

Yale To Give OSU Top Challenge

* #' #

OhioyState University would
seem a shoo-in for the NCAA
swimming title, if the chief fac-
tor in that probability were as-
sumed to be the Buckeyes' over-
whelming margin in the Big Ten
meet two weeks ago.
The powerful crew from Co-
lumbus goes into the meet next
week at Austin, Texas with \an
unblemished dual meet record, a
trio of divers who are almost cer-
tain to gain 20 or more points,
and a corps of backstrokers who
will spend most of their time fight-
ing each other for first places.
. .
BUT LOOMING up to challenge
the Western Conference cham-
pions is the pride of the East,'
Yale University, and a churning
free-styler named John Marshall.
Marshall, who set the swim-
ming world a-buzzing last spring
with his five world's records in
the National AAU champion-
ships, is even better as a Bull-
dog sophomore this season.
In the Eastern championships
a week ago, Marshall set a trio
of marks in his distance special-
ties, including a spectacular 4:33.8'
in the 440-yard free style.

HE'LL COMPETE in one event
where the Buckeye ace, Jack Tay-
lor, has been the kingpin, col-
legiately speaking, for the last
year and one half. That's the
1500-meters, where Taylor's 1950
record of 18:38 might well fall
into oblivion.
Yale will also give the Bucks
trouble in their favorite back
stroke, where they piled up a
phenomenal number of points
in the Western Conference meet.
Dick Thoman of the Bulldogs
is only slightly below the stan-
dard of 57.3 set by Taylor in the
100-yard backstroke in those
championships. The Eli ace swam
a good 58.4 in the Eastern Inter-
collegiate meet.
IT'S IN THE 220 that the Yale
men expect to reap their largest
point-harvest. In that free style
race, coach Bob Kiphuth fields

order at the seaboard cham-
pionships to give the Bulldogs
a sweep of the event. It's al-

pivotal event of the Austin water
carnival is the 400-yard free style
relay, where Ohio's terrific quartet
will face a Yale team composed
of Moore, Donald Sheff, Bill Farns-
worth and Al Reid. The result
should be a terrific battle for the
all-important relay points.
Yale was second to Ohio State
in last year's championships at
Columbus, Ohio. With the obvious
superiority they've gained in the
distance events by the eligibility
of their terrific freshman team for
varsity competition as sophomores
