Michigan's 1952 swimming team
gets its last crack of the season
at the Intramural Pool records
against Wayne Saturday evening.
The stopwatch promises to be
the Wolverines principal opposi-
tion, since the visitors lack the
strength necessary to give Michi-
gan much of a race in most of the
events.
WAYNE HAS BEEN able to win
only two of its seven dual meets
to date and finished tenth in
the Central Collegiate Conference
championships.
Two of its dual meet losses
came at the hands of teams
which the Wolverines have
downeA in earlier meets, Michi-
gan State and Bowling Green.
Wayne was soundly trounced by
both teams, the Spartans winning
68-25, and Bowling Green taking
the measure of the Tartars, 59-25.
Michigan defeated Michigan State,
74-19, and outclassed Bowling
Green, 74-19.
* * *
THE WAYNE MEET will serve
as the Wolverines' final prepara-
tory test for the NCAA meet March
27, 28, and 29.
Don Hill and Bumpy Jones
will be out to lower some of the
pool marks they have established
earlier in the year. In addiion
the Wolverines will attempt to
break several American breast
stroke relay records.
Hill holds the marks for both

es, setting the 50-yard record of
22.7 against Northwestern and the
50.2 century mark in the Bowling
Green meet.
THE VERSATILE Jones also
claims two of the Michigan Pool
records, each in different style
races. He first set the 440-yard
free-style mark in the Michigan
A.A.U. meet last December with
a time of 4:41.4, and then clipped
the 150-yard individual medley
record, swimming the distance in
1:30.8 against Northwestern.
Jones set a third record when
he negotiated the 200-yard back-
strowe in 2:13.7 against Bowling
Green. This mark was short-
lived, however, since Allen Stack
of Bainbridge Naval Training
Center lowered it to 2:12.5 last
month.

If one reason alone could be
given for the Michigan wrestling
team's second place conference fin-
ish behind Illinois, it would be the
injury of Larry Nelson, who last
year won the conference 123-
pound title.
Nelson was plagued by a series
of injuries from the start of the
season, when he twisted his knee
in the Wolverines' first dual meet
against Pittsburgh. This kept him
out of action for a while, but he
bounced back to take four more
matches in a row.

HIS SEASON'S mark was five
won and none lost before the Ohio
State meet when the flu bug bit
him aeid he couldn't make the
trip to Columbus. After he re-

covered from the flu, he strained
his back and thus became a doubt-
ful starter for the conference meet.
Nelson and Coach Cliff Keen
went into a huddle with the -
medics and Larry got the go-
ahead. He hadn't seen hide nor
hair of a wrestling mat in two
weeks, but he went into the
conference meet anyway.
Unfortunately, he met Dick
IGunner in his first round match.
Gunner, a sophomore from Michi-
gan State, had been touted all sea-
son as one of the leading young-
sters in the conference,
* * *
NELSON had already stood him
on his head when they met in a
dual meet at East Lansing earlier
in the seasog.
But this time that wasn't the
case. Gunner saw his advantage
and made the best of it. He let
Nelson wear himself down in the
beginning of their match and
then jumped back to decision
him.
At that he won . only by the
barest of margins, 3-2. If Nelson
had dropped Gunner and moved
through the 123 pound class as he
was expected, Michigan would
have won out over Illinois. }
* * *
THE LOSS was a sad end to a
brilliant collegiate career. In al-
mast ?our years of dual meet com-
petition Nelson lost only one match
and that was by the narrow mar-
gin of five seconds riding time to
an Indiana opponent in 1948.

Theynever get their names in
headlines, they rarely get their
names in print, but the men of the
mile relay team are a vital cog on
any track team.
On the Michigan thinclad squad
the baton-passers are Dan Hick-
man, Bill Konrad, Al Rankin and
Jack Carroll. Their peak per-
formance this year was a 3:18.7
turned in at Champaign in the
indoor conference meet.
IN A NORMAL year this time is
more than enough to win, but this
season, with Big Ten track squads
unusually strong, it was good for
only a close third behind Iowa's
3:18.3 and Illinois' 3:18.6.
Rankin, a Junior from Ottawa,
Canada, generally runs the open-
ing quarter. Though an injury
kept him out of the outdoor
campaign last spring, he has
gradually worked his leg back
into shape.
His current ambition is to make
the Canadian Olympic squad. He
hopes to top the standard in the
400-meter hurdles and thus earn
a trip to Helsinki.
KO$RAD, a sprinter by trade,
has been forced up to the quarter
level by leg trouble. When the out-
door seasof rolls around he will
probably be going in the 100 and
the 220, his best distances.

A senior engineering student,1
Konrad has thrice been the re-
cipient of the Yost Award, given
for scholarship and athletics.
Last year the Oak Park, Illinois
performer boasted the highest
average on the cinder contin-
gent.
Hickman is a home grown pro-
duct, coming from the neighbor-
ing metropolis of Ypsilanti. In his
high school days he was the 440
champ of the class C bracket.

LARRY NELSON
Earlier in 1948, while still a
student at South Division High
School in Milwaukee, the then
eighteen-year old Nelson went
to the finals of the midwest
Olympic trials before losing out.
Needless to say, if his errant
back allows it, he will make a
strong attempt to get on the boat
to Helsinki this year.

RelayTeam Finally Makes Headlines,

Hickman has twice received the
Yost Award.
CARROLL is considered the best
quarter-miler since the pre-war
days of Bub Ufer. Though only a
sophomore he is the Big Ten
champ at his favorite distance.
As only Konrad will graduate
this June, Coach Don Canham can
look forward to at least another
year of fine performances from
the unheralded relay squad.

Bowling Nears End ..
Bowling in the social fraternities is coming to a rather dramatic
finale. In the lower bracket, Tau Delta Phi will meet Sigma Alpha Mu
in their semi-final match on Sunday. The Tau Delts defeated ATO
2604 to 2432 to enter the semis. Hanley Gurwin was the victor's big
gun with a 618 series.
SAM gained the semi-final round by turning back Pi Lambda Phi,
2519-2368. The Sammies are led by Nonnie Weinstock.

Betas Sad - They've Been Had

How close can you come without
winning?
That's probably what the Beta
Theta Pi's are thinking today af-
ter dropping two basketball games
last night, each by a one point
margin.
IN THE SECOND place 'A' play-
offs, Sigma Phi defeated the Betas,
26-25. Bruce Bradshaw scored a
field goal with about 15 seconds
remaining iii the game to give the
Sigma Phis their narrow margin.
Don Johnson was high scorer
for the victors with 12 points,
while John Steck and Gordon
Tarrant each dropped in seven
points for the Betas.
In the third place 'B' playoffs,
again it was Beta Theta Pi on the

it was Phi Sigma Kappa who eked
out the victory. The score was 23-
22.
WITH ABOUT three seconds left
in the game and trailing by one
point. Ralph Smith of the Betas
was fouled in the act of shooting.
His first foul shot went
through the hoop, but the bas-
ket was disallowed because one
of his teammates stepped over
the line. He missed his second
attempt and that was the game.
Bob Mueller pumped in 14 points
for the,.Phi Sig's and Bob Russel
accounted for nine more. Bob
Grew was leading scorer for the
losers, netting 10 points, with
Smith right behind with nine.
