By IVAN KAYE
Afterthoughts in the wake of
the 30th annual NCAA swimming
a meet held over the weekend at the
Ohio State University Natatorium
in Columbus :
Michigan's Wolverines, although
finishing a distant third behind
well-balanced Yale and star-stud-
ded Ohio, turned in a generally
creditable performance and finish-
ed in accordance with the pre-
meet prediction.
THE RECORD setting freestyle
relay quartet of Bumpy Jones, Ron
Gora, and co-captains elect Tom
Benner and Don Hill provided the
highlight of the meet from the
Michigan angle. The foursome
lowered the NCAA standard from
3:25.7 to 3:24.0.
Individual stars for the Maize
and, Blue were Hill, who licked
a top-notch field in the 50 yard
sprint, and the incomparable
Jones, who triumphed easily in
his specialty, the 150 yard indi-
vidual medley.
The meet was figured to be a
3MI

two-team affair and events proved
the prognostication to be correct.
Yale, with its great corps of swim-
mers, spread over all of the events,
was too much for the Ohio squad.
* * *
THE BUCKEYES were a team
dominated by four sparkling swim-
mers and a trio of championship
divers. There was no depth what-
soever, a fact which worried Mike
Peppe greatly all through the sea-
son. At one time there were only
ten men on the Ohio squad.
The illness of any of the four
swimmers (Ford Konno, Dick
Cleveland, Jerry Holan and Yo-
shi Oyakawa) would be of gravy
consequence to any victory ef-
fort. Konno was the unlucky
one to contract the mumps just
before the nationals.
Without taking any credit from
a fine Yale team, superbly coached
by one of the masters of the sport,
Bob Kiphuth, it is only fair to
point out that the 26 point mar-
gin by which the Easterners won
the title would have been sharply
reduced if Konno had put in P'
appearance.
YALE'S tremendous freestyle
power -and depth were evidenced
with graphic clarity in the 440
yard event, when Wayne, Moore,
Jimmy McLane, Martin Smith
and John Marshall finished 1-2-
4-5 to give the Ivy-League entry
17 out of a possible 22 points in
the race.
The Ohio diving monopoly
reigned through another year
as Jerry Harrison took the one-
meter crown and Bob Clotwor-
thy won the three-meter title.
An interesting sidelight on the
geographic distribution of the Yale
team shows that the great Eli
freestyler McLane is from Akron,
Ohio, and star backstroker Dick
Thoman is from Cincinnati.
ONE CANNOT help but wonder
what the Ohio team would be if7
these lads had decided to enroll
at their home state university.
It was ironic that Thoman
swam a phenomenal 2:07.1, a time
good enough to win any other race
in the history of the sport, but
on last Friday evening good enough,
only for second place.I

By WILL PERRY
Led by two double winners, Dave
Maloney and Deil Wright, Allen
Rumsey won the residence hall
track meet defeating runner up
Gomberg, 25-201, last night at
Yost Fieldhouse.
In the initial event of the eve-
ning, Maloney won the 60 yard
dash in the fast time of 6.8 sec-
onds. Maloney was supported by
his teammate, Dick Whittaker, who
picked up a point finishing fourth
with Bill Stuart, Hinsdale, and
Ben Bray, Cooley, taking the sec-
ond and third places.
WRIGHT WON his first event of
the night when he clipped two-
tenths of a second off his qualify-

ing time to take the high hurdles
in 9.3. Jim McClurg gave Gomberg
three points with his second place
finish.,
Trailing by over 25 yards with
two laps to go in the mile event,
Ed Godfrey put on a great kick
that left his rivals far behind
as he gave Gomberg its first win.
Don Potter of Hayden followed
Godfrey across the tape to finish
second and Bob Hummel from
Taylor finished third.
Maloney and Whittaker gave
Rumsey a one two punch by cap-
turing the first two places in ther
440.
HAL KIEFER was responsible
for Hayden's first victory winning
the 880 with a respectable time of
2:11. Ben Yount helped Cooley's
third place finish in the meet by
coming in second and Dick Sta-
bleford gave Michigan House its
first points of the night taking
third.
I The laurels in the field events

were more evenly distributed
than the track competition with
no house winning two events.
Don Evans of Cooley after pull-
ing a muscle in winning his heat
in the 60 yard dash, took the
honors in the shot put with a
heave of 39-4.
Norm Niedermaler, the last per-
former to leave the field house
floor, took honors in the pole vault
for Adams House with a leap of 10-
6.
Gomberg clinched second place
when Roy Birchfield won the high
jump with a leap of 5-8.

its stand. ' LITY a

IN THE LAST five seasons the
Michigan golfers have been unable
o return from their tour with a
winning record. Despite this, they
have won three conference cham-
pionships during these years.
Coach Katzenmeyer will also
be able to use these two precon-
ference matches to gauge a bet-
ter concept of the squad mem-
ber's respective abilities before
they start the defense of their
Big Ten title against Ohio State,
Indiana, and Purdue at Colum-
bus on April 18th.
The Wolverine golfers in gen-
eral lack experience and need
steady playing more than anything
else if they are going to make a
creditable showing against the
powerful Big Ten squads. Both
Ohio State and Purdue, Michigan's
first conference opponents, are
rated as the teams to beat in the
Western Conference.

THE WILDCATS join Minneso-
ta, Wisconsin and Michigan State
against continuing the pact. Ohio
State has already voted in the af-
firmative, and Illinois has done
likewise on a conditional basis.
Michigan, Iowa and Indiana
are expected to vote "Yes" on
the issue as they have done in
the past but have not yet an-
nounced their official stand.
Purdue's faculty Tuesday will
cast its vote on recommendations
by the school's faculty and ath-
letic committees favoring renewal.

COA.HU KATZENMEYERS out-
fit will be at a distinct disadvan-
tage since the southern schools
have already been playing compet-
itive golf for over a month and in
general practice all year round.
North Carolina, Southern Confer-
ence titlists, have played seven
matches this season while Duke
has played five.
For this reason the annual trip
does not always give a true pic-
ture of the team's relative
strength. However, it does en-
able the squad to obtain some
steady practice under favorable
weather conditions in prepara-
tion for the conference schedule.

Although Purdue's faculty and
athletic committees have recom-
mended an affirmative stand, there
is no assurance that the entire fac-
ulty will carry the final vote Tues-
day.

Soccer Group
To See Action
The educated toes of Michigan's
soccer enthusiasts will be in for
an active spring, according to Ken
Ross, captain of the Wolverine
Soccer Club.
Ross, who calls soccer the fast-
est growing sport on the Michigan
campus, announced yesterday that
the group plans to join the major
league of the Michigan Youth Soc-
cer Football Committee. Teams
from Michigan State College and
Michigan Normal as well as sev-
eral Detroit elevens will round out!
Ithe loop.
A MEETING to discuss plans
for the spring campaign will be
held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in Rm.!
247 of the Architecture Building.
Ross urged all men interested
in playing soccer, whether ex-
perienced or inexperienced, to
attend the meeting. "This is a
challenging game and yet you
don't have to be skillful to have
fun," Ross said.
Last fall the Wolverine booters
finished their first complete sched-
ule with a record of three wins,
one loss and two ties against su-
perior competition. The only de-
feat came at the hands of Ober-
lin College, one of the soccer pow-
ers of the country.
