Michigan Swimmers Set
For NCAAChampionship


F YOU'RE one of those who looks on sports page stories as here-
today-gone-tomorrow stuff, you might change your mind after
reading what follows.
It first appeared four years ago, in February, 1949, in a column
by one Bud Weidenthal, then Associate Sports Editor of The Daily.
This, lads and ladies, may not be the neatest piece of prophecy since
Nostradamus noticed sunspots, but it'll do:
"With the passage of each day the verbal battle with Michigan
State intensifies. And the strange part about the whole situation
is that all the accusations and charges seem to emanate from one
source . .. the MSC athletic office. It's strictly a one-sided affair,
with the Spartans doing all the hollering and Michigan doing little
or nothing to defend itself.
The Wolverines have good reason to believe that silence is
the best policy.
The University of Michigan, along with its athletic depart-
ment, has for over a century been regarded as one of the finest
of its kind in the country. It has been famed for its purity and
high standards. Wolverine athletes have always been of the high-
est caliber of students as well as in intercollegiate competition.
For years, Michigan with its vast stadium has been host to
MSC, aiding the Spartans not only in national-recognition (when
other big time schools would not schedule them) but with a large
cash income, which went a long way toward subsidizing their
athletic program. State students were always admitted free to
these contests . . . that practice only being discontinued at the
request of MSC.
Then in a matter of a few years, the Spartans, aided by liberal
athletic scholarships (which they have now discontinued), sky-
rocketed to national prominence as one of the country's better ag-
gregations ... but apparently they got too big for their breeches.
Leveling all sorts of charges of "harsh dealings,"'"mercenary
attitude," "ultimatum," etc., the Spartan athletic office opened a
full fledged propaganda campaign against the very school that
had carried them under their wing.
In an attempt to enhance their own reputation they have
aroused quite the opposite response. They have very possibly set
their reputation back to the time when they were nothing but a
small agricultural college-f(and that's not so long ago.)
They have certainly overstepped the bounds of good taste in
athletic diplomacy. The problem of aid to athletes has also arisen
as a basis for conflict.r
As new members of the Big Ten, they have to be extremely
careful of each move . . . they're under careful scrutiny by all the
Conference. Any slip can prove to be of serious consequence ...'
Pretty pertinent, eh, for a passage composed four springs ago?
There's an unusual story about the aut1tor of it, incidentally, which
has nothing to do with his column.
Weidenthal, now a working newspaperman, was in the Infantry
during World War II before his stint on The Daily. During the Battle
of the Bulge, he volunteered to help drop supplies from airplanes. He
did }t so well he was awarded the Air Medal . . . one of the few in-
fantrymen to be so honored.
Weidenthal never got a medal for writing the above piece for'The
Daily, though. He might come back and collect one now for his
prophetic power.

If past performances and field-
ing averages are any criteria,
Michigan should have the best in-
field in the Big Ten in 1953.
PACED BY the snappy double
combination 'of shortstop Bruce
Haynam, second baseman Gil Sab-
uco and firstsacker Bill Mogk, the
infielders helped the Wolverines
to the top spot in the last year
Western Conference defensive rat-
ings with a .964 percentage.
But in the batting department,
only thirdsacker Don Eaddy was
able to break into the charmed

ten percentage points. Captain
Mogk established the next best
record with the willow, hitting

collegiate shortstop in the past 20

gers) in fielding with a .957 aver-
HAYNAM'S keystone cohort

games to finish behind OSU's per-

with a rush at the end of the sea-
son to move his batting mark up
to .283.
Captain Mogk led all big ten

Eaddy, the speedy basketball
star from Grand Rapids lived up
to a lot of his advance notices as
he powered the ball for a .337 over-
all average besides his .310 confer-
ence mark. Although a sure glove
man with quick reflexes, Eaddy
had a lot of trouble taming down
his throwing arm.

at the "hot corner," he still man-

experience and some intensified

Wolverine squad is NCAA breast

a world record in last year's meet.
But Mann returns with his 150-

Don Gora, Tom Benner, and Don

THE HOST Buckeyes will be
favored to repeat last year's tti-
umph, provided that NCAA 1500
meter and 440 yard freestyle king
Ford Konno has recovered suffi-
ciently from his case of mumps to
swim effectively. There is also some
speculation about the condition
of Dick Cleveland, the ace Buck-
eye sprinter who won the 50-yard
freestyle event in last year's meet.
He was noticeably weak from his
case of the mumps in the-Big Ten
meet three weeks ago, and will
have to be at his best to defeat
Michigan's Don Hill, and North-
western's Keith Peterson.
Mike Peppe's crew will also
have Yosh Oyakawa, last year's
100 and 200 yard back stroke
titlist, on hand. Michigan's Matt
Mann has called Oyakawa "the
world's greatest backstroker."
The Scarlet and Grey also boast
of one of the nation's top breast
strokers, Jerry Holan,. a likely
successor to Davies' title.

Bob Kiputh's great Yale squad
is ready and willing to step into
the winners circle should the
Bucks falter. Yale, the class of the
east, was runner up to Ohio State
in last year's meet, and according
to Matt Mann, "will win if Konno
isn't in shape."
* * *
MICHIGAN WILL naturally pin
most of their hopes on Jones, Hill,
and the relay teams, but may pick
up valuable points elsewhere,
Mann will send Captain Wally Jef-
fries into the lidlif ter on Thursday
night, the 1500 meter freestyle,
and will use Jeffries and Bumpy
Jones in the 440-yard freestyle. In
the 220, it will probably be. Jef-
fries, Jones, or Ron Gora.
Gora will also-go in a relay,
and 100-yard freestyle, while
sprinter Hill will swim in the
50, 100 and relay. Tom Benner
will also swim these events, and
Jones will naturally make his
bid for his second consecutive
NCAA individual medley title.

The finest mile run field that's
been assembled in years-that's
' what the experts say about the
five men who will match strides in
the 31st annual Bankers Invita-
tional Mile that will be run at the
Chicago Relays this weekend.
* * *
ALONG WITH Michigan's John
Ross, Len Truex, Bill Dwyer, War-
ren Druetzler, and Fred Wilt fill
out the field.
} Two weeks ago Truex ran the
fastest mile of the indoor season
when he showed his heels to a
fleet field in the Milwaukee
Journal Relays. The Ohio State
grad led both Wilt and Bruetz-
ler to the tape on that occasion
and turned in a 4:07.8 time for
the eight furlongs.
Last week Truex turned in an-
other fine race winning the mile
in the Cleveland Knights of Col-
umbus meet handing Dwyer his
first defeat of the indoor season
at the same time.
DWYER WHO wears the Blue
and White of Villanova is consid-
ered the top collegiate miler to
appear on the eastern indoor cir-
cuit in many years.
Ross will be running only the
second mile he has ever run on
a board track, but with many
outstanding performances on the
indoor cinder tracks to his credit
he is rated a definite threat.
The Canadian junior is the cur-
rent Big Ten record holder in the
mile as well as both the Conference
r In three college years, you can prepare
for the attractive profession of optome-
try, if you have a minimum of sixty
required Liberal Arts credits.
'there is a shortage of optometrists in
many States. Eighty per cent of the
Nation's miJions depend upon the Doc-
tor of Optometry and his professional
skill in conserving vision.
The optometrist possesses the dignity
of being a professional man. He renders
a service essential to the health and
well-being of his community. Substan-
tial financial rewards are obtainable al-

indoor and outdoor champion. In
his first appearance in a confer-
ence meet he set the present :-ec-
ord of 4:09.4.
LAST WEEK on his first mile
on a board track he easily won
the Canadian championship set-
ting a new record.
The Bankers mile for over
thirty years has been one of the
featured races of the track year
and the outstanding attraction
of the Chicago Relays.
The race was founded in 1921
when Joie Ray, then of the Illi-
nois A. C., raced to victory in the
then outstanding time of 4:24. The
Bankers Mile continued to attract
the best in track down to the pres-
ent with such scintillating milers
as Lloyd Hahn, Glenn Cunning-
ham, Chuck Fenske, Cambell Kane,
Gil Dodds, Don Gehrman, and
Fred Wilt taking the Taylor tro-
phy presented to the winner.
Only one man, Lloyd Hahn, has
ever won permanent possession of
the trophy, as it requires winning
the Bankers Mile three times to
gain complete ownership.
The present meet record of
4:06.4 was set in 1944 by Dodds,
who is one of the few men to have
won the race twice.

tween the ages of 19 and 262 years, unmarried, and in good
physical condition-with high requirements for eyes, ears,
heart and teeth.
How long before I get my commission?
60. calendar weeks. You will receive the finest aviation training
in the world-training that not only equips you to fly modern

tive work as well. At the completion of your training, you will
have acquired a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant and the
coveted silver wings of the United States Air Force.
Where do I take my training?
Pre-flight training will be at Lackland Air Force Base, San
Antonio, Texas. Primary, basic and advanced training will be
taken at any one of the many Air Force bases located throughout
the South and Southwest.r
What happens if I flunk the training course?
Every effort is made to help students whose progress is unsatis-
factory. You can expect extra instructions and whatever indi-
vidual attention you may require. However, if you fail to
complete the course as an Aviation Cadet, you will be required
to serve a two-year enlistment to fulfill the minimum requirement
under Selective Service laws. Veterans who have completed a
tour of military service will be discharged upon request if they
fail to complete the course.
What pay do I get as an Aviation Cadet? And after?

addition, you get summer and winter uniforms, flight clothes,
equipment, food, housing, medical and dental care and insurance
-.. all free. After you are commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant you
will be earning $5,300.00 a year-with unlimited opportunities
for advancement.
Are all Aviation Cadets trained to be Pilots?
No. You can choose between becoming a Pilot or an Aircraft

officers in Navigation, Bombardment, Radar Operation, or
Aircraft Performance Engineering.

Do Aircraft Observers get flying training, too?
Yes. Aircraft Observer Cadets receive approximately 200 hours
of "in the air" instructions. The primary phase of Aircraft
Observer training is the same for all branches (navigation,
bombardment, etc.). The basic and advanced phases of training
vary, depending on the specific course you pursue.
What kind of airplanes will I fly?
You will fly jets. The Pilot Cadet takes his first instructions in
a light, civilian-type plane of approximately 100 horsepower,
then graduates to the 600 horsepower T-6 "Texan" before
receiving transition training in jets. You then advance gradually
until you are flying such famous first-line aircraft as F-86 Sabre,
F-89 Scorpion, B-47 Stratojet, B-50 Superfortress. Observer
Cadets take flight instructions in the C-47 Dakota, the T-29
Convair, and the TB-50 Superfortress before advancing to first-
line aircraft such as the F-89 Scorpion, B-47 Stratojet.
Will my commission be in the Regular Air Force or Reserve?
Aviation Cadet graduates, both Pilots and Aircraft Observers;
get Reserve commissions as 2nd Lieutenants and become eligible
to apply for a regular Air Force Commission when they have
completed 18 months of active duty.
How long must I remain in Service?
After graduation from the Aviation Cadet Program, you are
tendered an indefinite appointment in the United States Air
Force Reserve and are called to active duty with the United
States Air Force for a period of three years.
What recreation and leisure time will I have as a Cadet?
Discipline will be rigid-especially for the first few weeks.
However, it is not all work. You'll find swimming pools, handball
courts, movies and other forms of recreation on the post.
Where will I be stationed when I get my commission?
You may be stationed anywhere in the world . ;. Hawaii, Far
East, Europe, Puerto Rico, elsewhere. During your tour of duty,
you will be in close touch with the latest developments in new
flying techniques. You will continue to build up your flying
experience and 'later should have no difficulty securing a CAA
commercial pilot or navigator rating.
