Benner, Rusty Carlisle, Wally
Jeffries, John Ries and Jim Wal-
ters will carry Michigan's hopes
into the meet.
The Wolverine contingent will
leave from the Willow Run air-
port at 9:00 this morning. No
Michigan man is entered in the
long 1500-meter grind tonight.
Yale and Ohio State are ex-
pected to battle it out for top
honors as they did last year when
Yale emerged the winner. It will
pit the Buckeyes' Ford Konno,
Dick Cleveland, Jack Taylor, and
diving 'contingent against Yale's
John Marshall, Wayne Moore,
Richard Thoman, and Kenneth
A close battle and a new inter-
collegiate record may be in the
making tonight when the Buck-
eyes' Konno and the Elis' Marshall
clash. Konno is present holder of
the intercollegiate mark of 18:11.5
which he set at the Big Ten meet
three weeks ago.
Michigan's Davies will attempt
- to repeat his 100 and 200-yard1
Big Ten breaststroke victories in
the NCAA meet tomorrow and
Saturday. His chief competition
will come from Princeton's Bob
Brawner, who won both the races
in last year's NCAA meet. Davies
was forced to miss the meet last
year because of an eye infection.
* * *
Elliott, who was the leading
Wolverine performer in the NCAA
meet last year, finished third in
the 100-yard breaststroke and
sixth in the 200. The 200 will be
swum tomorrow night and the
100 on Saturday.
Michigan's medley star, Jones,
will again take on Indiana's
Larry Meyer, whom he barely
beat in the Big Ten champion-
ships, in the 150-yard individual
medley. In addition he faces a
fast man in Robert Mattson of
North Carolina State Saturday
night. Carlisle will also swim
the medley for the Wolverines.
The Wolverines' sprinter Hill
will swim the 50 tomorrow night,
and Benner will join him in the

FROM THE years 1922 through
1934, when they were crowned
champions at the National Inter-
collegiate Tournament at Cleve-
land, the Wolverine golfers com-
piled the amazing record of 66
wins, only eight losses and two
Again in 1935, Michigan won
the National Championship, de-
spite a loss to Northwestern in a
dual meet. It was the first loss
for the squad since 1932 when
Ohio State performed the feat.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer, now!
starting his seventh year as golf
mentor, has led the linksmen to
Conference titles in 1946, 1947,
and 1949. Last year the squad
finished fourth behind Ohio State,
Purdue, and Wisconsin, on a rain-
soaked course at Evanston.
IN COMPETITION last season,'
the Wolverine sextet compiled an
eight won, five lost, one tied rec-
ord. This included the spring trip
to the South in which the Maize
and Blue were victorious over only
Wake Forest. North Carolina eked
out a narrow victory and Duke
trounced them, 23-4.
In Big Ten action, Michigan
defeated Ohio State and Mich-
igan State twice, won decisions
over Indiana and Illinois, split
a pair of matches with Purdue,
and tied the Wildcats of North-

Michigan State College, last
night zoomed to the top flight
among welterweights, by scor-
ing a technical knockout over

lightweight champion, in 1:47

The scheduled 10-round bat-
tle was halted by referee Wil-
liam Doty with Williams stag-

less two-fisted attack. Williams

Both are sophomores who have
come a long way since the begin-

Nalan won six of eight regular
season meets, but reached his peak
in the Big Ten meet held in Ann

elbow had been injured. The
Michigan grappler was ahead on

When Lee met Hoke again in
the Western Conference cham-
pionships, he came very close to
beating him, and only succumbed
to the Spartan flash on the basis
of a referee's decision.

ALONG WITH Oklahoma, Ok-

Purdue, Indiana and Princeton are
expected to enter wrestlers with
good chances of winning.
The Aggies will be entering the
largest squad of fifteen men in an
attempt to outman the rest of the
competing teams. But perhaps
quality and not quantity will win
out in the end.
