Swim Team as One of Best

z.

By LEW HAMBURGER
Matt Mann's swimming team for
the coming season is beginning to
take form.
The Wolverine coach left for
the Florida swimming forum Fri-
day, but he left with a good idea
of how his team stacks up. He
has an extremely versatile lineup
and will be able to shift his swim-
mers in accordance with the
strength and weaknesses of the
opposition.
THIS IS the year that Mann has
been building for, and it looks as
if 'his efforts have not been in
vain. The last few years, spent
in working toward a conference

and possibly a national title, have
produced a team that is potentially
up to these hopes, and maybe
more.
In the sprints Don Hill is al-
ready turning in times that will
carry him a longway, and when
the big boy gets into good condi-
tion there may be a lot of sur-
prised people in the areas of
Columbus and New Haven.
His time of 22.5 as anchor man
on the winning AAU relay team
is enough to take him a long way
in the defense of his NCAA 50
yard crown. He captured the title
with a 22.4.
* . *
BUMPY JONES, and the Ward-

rop twins, Bert and Jack, will be
the workhorses of the Wolverine
natators. Their names appear on
almost all of the lists of Mann
possibilities, and before the year
is over they should see action in
the breastroke, backstroke, indi-
vidual medley, and 220, 440, and
1500 freestyle events. In addition,
the trio will undoubtedly serve on
both relay teams at one time or
another.
Jones is acclaimed by many
swimmers and coaches as one of
the great all-around swimmers
of the world.rHe and Bert
Wardrop should form an in-
vincible combination in the in-
dividual medley, an event that
Michigan should not lose all
year.
Jack Wardrop, on the other
hand, turned in' one of the best
performances last Saturday at the
AAU meets, taking the 220 yard
freestyle in 2.10.1. The British
Olympic captain coasted to a state
AAU record with that time, and
could have improved it without
much effort.
* * *
Mann was pleased with Jack's
performance, for it was one in
the Mann style, loose, easy and
with a minimum of effort. In
speaking of Wardrop, he said,
"When he gets in there with boys
like Gora and Jones, who won't
take a licking from anyone, it's
going to be very interesting.
It's going to be even more in-
teresting when the team tangles
with Ford Konno, of Ohio State,
in this event. More surprises may
be in store for the Buckeye
faithfuls.
Tom Benner is another reason
why Michigan should be watched
closely by swimming fans this sea-
son. He will add potency to the
50 and 100 yard freestyle -com-
binations, but his chief value to
the team will be in his position
on the relays. His teammates
speak of him as a "great relay
man," and "good in the clutch."
Jim Walters.hletterman diver,
looked better than he had been
expected in taking the diving in
the AAU meet last week. He had
nice height in his dives and was
duly rewarded with a smattering
of eights and several nines, with
ten the maximum credit that can
be given for a dive. He is one
more who could be a pleasant sur-
prise when Michigan takes on
Ohio State.
Although Ohio figures to be the
toughest opposition that the Wol-
verines encounter, the squad is
not becoming overly "beat Ohio"
conscious, for they well realize
the losses that can occur by over-
looking an opponent.
Best wishes for a
MERRY CHRISTMAS
and an
& ENJOYABLE HOLIDAY

SCORING

By TED KAUFMAN
Although it has lost six letter-
men through graduation, the Il-
linois basketball team promises to
be one of the top powers of the
Big Ten again this year.
In its season opener against
Ohio University, the Orange and
Blue squad was victorious, 85-
54, and during a ten-minute per-
iod poured thirty-three points
through the hoop.
CENTRAL figure on this pow-
erful Illini quintet is the two-year
veteran, big 6-9, red-headed, John
Kerr. Last year, wish such men
as Irv Bemoras, Jim Bredar, Olive
Follmer and Bob Peterson as team-
mates. Kerr did see plenty of ac-
tion but always had well seasoned
reserves to back him up.
This season, with their grad-
nation, much more of the onus
of key man falls on Kerr's
shoulders. Last season he dump-
ed in 386 points, fourth in the
conference, was named to Sev-
eral all-star teams, and was
elected captain of this year's
five.
So far this season, Kerr's shoot-
ing has been rather disappointing
to coach Harry Combes although
he feels Kerr's ball handling and
defense are better than in the
past two years.
THE OTHER returning letter-
man who figures to be' on the
Illini starting five is Max Hooper,
a forward from Mt. Vernon, New
York. Last season Hooper receiv-
ed the Ralf Woods Memorial Tro-
phy for the highest foul shooting
average in the conference.
Hooper averaged 9.1 points
per game in 1952-53 and with
the great deal of road work he's
done this year, he figures to be
an important cog in Illinois'
court hopes.
Filling in the other forward
spot is Bruce Brothers, regarded
as one of the most promising soph-

omores in Illini history. Playing
for Quincy Illinois High School,
Brothers averaged 24.5 points per
game and has kept this torrid pace
up by hitting for better than 20
points a contest in intra-squad
games for Illinois.
BROTHERS, a solid 6-5, plays
the boards very well, has an ex-
cellent jump shot, and alternates
with Kerr in the pivot slot. Ano-
ther promising sophomore is Paul
Judson, a ten-letter man at He-
bron High School.

Judson's fast an' I aggressive
play are assets wit ich fit quite
well in Illini trern [ towards a
speedy, hustling ten a1n. In the
Ohio - Illinois gala se Judson
dropped in five basik ets and sev-
en free throws to tao; P his team's
scoring.
The fifth man ofi t he Illinois
starting five is at pi resent Jini
Wright but Elmer Plew and Bill
Ridley are right behinz I him.
Under Combes' able tut-elage, the
Illini again represeni t. on e of the
Big Ten's best
