AUSTIN, Tex.-- (A) -- John
Marshall of Yale last night
bettered the world's freestyle
record for 1,500 meters and set
a new inter-collegiate mark
with a time of 18 minutes, 18.8
He was two laps ahead of
second place Bert McLachlan
of Michigan State at the finish
of the first event of the NCAA
The world's record of 18:19
was set in 1949 by Hironoshin
r' Furuhashi of Japan.
The intercollegiate record of
18:38.3 was set by Jack Taylor
of Ohio State last year.

today and the 100 breast tomor-
row, besides swimming on the
medley relay team.
lliott's usual partner-in-
tiie, John Davies, was forced
out of the meet by an eye in-
fection. The Aussie ace was
counted on for points in both
breast stroke events.
Jim Hartman, diver, and Ber-
nie Kahn, backstroker, are other
potential place-winners for Matt
Mann's team. Hartman faces
rough competition in the low
board event today, especially
from Ohio State's terrific trium-
virate, Bob Clotworthy, Al Coffey,
and Joe Marino.
KAHN WON'T SEE action yuntil
tomorrow, when he'll compete in
the 100-yard backstroke and
medley relay. He joins Elliott and

favarites in the meet. The

YALE'S John Marshall will as-
sault Jack Medica's 16-year-old
440-yard free style record of
4:42.5, and is rated a cinch to top
it. Marshall has gone the distance
Marshall will also go after the
220-yard record of 2:08.2, set by
Ohio State's human whale, Bill
Smith, in 1949. In that event the
crazy-armed whiz from Down Un-

over a three-inning stretch, win-
ning a 15 to 9 exhibition decision

A trio o young sophomore net
stars figure to play an important
role in coach Bill Murphy's plans
for the coming tennis campaign.
Faced with the unenviable task
of filling the gap left by such
Wolverine standbys as Don Mac-
Kay, Dick Lincoln and Len
Brumm, Murphy is counting heavi-
ly on yearlings Gene Barrack, Bob
Curhan and Jay Webb.
RIGHT NOW Barrack seems a
dead cinch to break into the top
six, perhaps climbing as high as
number three spot, while Webb
and Curhan are engaged in a
three-way fight with senior Jack
Griffith for the sixth singles berth.
Barrack, who hails from Bay-
onne, New Jersey, has, estab-
lished himself as the best'of the
sophomore crop by virtue of his
consistently fine play.
Last year, he distinguished him-
self by walking off with top hon-
ors inia round-robin freshman
BARRACK gave further proof
of his ability when he won an
intra-squad tournament this fall
in which all but the top four var-
sity players took part.
CURHAN, who played his high
school tennis for Redford High
School in Detroit, held down the
number four spot on last year's

be given the edge in the three-
cornered scramble for the sixth
spot due to his recent win over

Last year he succeeded in reach-

The Wilton model has risen to solid favoritism with style conscious men
because it provides flattering fashion and complete comfort naturally.
The shoulders have practically no padding, the inner construction is
soft, and the lines are straight-hanging. Thus when you wear the suit,
you are unaware of any weight on your shoulders or construction of
And in addition, as you will see, the Wilton will probably become you
more than any suit you have ever worn.
May we suggest you see our new Spring tweeds and worsteds in this
famously flattering model.
