Ohio State Heavily Favored
To Repeat in Title Defense

Cline Leads Baseball Squad;
Starts Final Year in Outfield

By LEW HAMBURGER
Special to The Daily
OXFORD, Ohio -- The thirty-
second annual NCAA swimming,
meet, featuring the nation's top
swimmers and a host of interna-
tional and Olympic stars gets un-
der way tonight with the 1500 me-
ter freestyle.
Ohio State's defending cham-
pions are a heavy favorite to de-
fend their crown which they re-
captured last year after Yale in-
terrupted 'the Ohio domination of
national swim championships in
1953.
The Buckeyes are expected to
jump into the lead in the first
event tonight, as Ford Konno goes
out to defend his 1500 meter
championship.
International Overtone
There's a highly international
overtone to this gathering of
swimming stars, as at least a doz-
en Olympic veterans and a host of
prospects for the 1956 games from
all over the world are to compete
in the three-day event.
Ohio State's Hawaiian delega-
tion is among the strongest, with
the one-two punch of co-captains
Yoshi Oyakawa and Konno lead-
ing the way. The two, both, hold-
ers of world re,.rds, have led the
Buckeyes to national champion-
ships in 1952, and 54, and four
t Big Ten crowns.
Bill Woolsey, who has beaten
Konno four times at various dis-
tances is Indiana's big hope. His
teammate, Sonny Tanabe, an-
other Hawaiian, is counted on for
additional points in the individ-
ual medley.
Wardrops To Swim
One of the most formidable for-
eign delegations is the twin threat
from Scotland, Michigan's Bert
and Jack Wardrop. The latter has
twice broken the world 220 yard
freestyle mark, both times defeat-
ing Konno.

egation of South Africans in Gra-
ham Johnson, middle distance
star, Lin Meiring, backstroker, and
Peter Duncan. All three are Olym-
pic veterans.
Australia's representatives, two
of the outstanding men in their
respective events, are Yale's Rex
Aubrey, top sprinter, and Har-
v a r d 's defending breaststroke!
champion, Dave Hawkins.
Iowa's Lincoln Hurring and Ross
Lucas, both New Zealanders, are
expected to finish high in the
backstroke and middle distance
events, respectively.
Over half of these imports won
All-American honors last year.

GRANT SCRUGGS DANNY CLINE
... anchor man ... No. 44 on the diamond

By JIM BAAD
"I wish I had ten more ball-
Players like him," said Ray Fisher.
Tis is how Michigan's baseball
coach rates his new captain, Dan-
ny dline, who is starting his third
year as centerfielder for the Wol-
verines.
Cline added a lot of hitting
punch to the squad last year as
he posted a .304 conference bat-
ting average. This mark was tops
for Michigan in Big Ten competi-
tion. Cline is also a competent
glove man, making only one error
all last season.
Planned on Michigan
Cline, who lives in Brockton,
New York, came to Michigan be-
cause he had lived here until his
freshman year in high school, and
had always planned on coming to
the University.
"I wanted to play football for
Michigan," he said, "and I also
had planned on trying out for the
baseball team." He turned out to
be extremely proficient at both.
In fact, he was written up in
Sports Illustrated, in a feature en-
titled "Number 44."

Although Cline plays in Michi-
gan's outfield, he was an infielder
in high school. Fisher switched
him to the outfield
"The most important thing that
Fisher has done for me as a coach
is to loosen me up," said Cline.
"He also has gotten me- to keep
my head down when I'm hitting.
Great Competitor
Fisher himself says that Cline
is a great competitor and a per-
fect addition to the ball club.
"Danny has really done a swell
job for me," he added.
As captain of this year's base-
ball team, Cline figures that the
Wolverines have a lot of poten-
tial talent. "Defensively we are
very strong," he said, "but I'm
not too sure where we stand with
our pitching."
Cline has applied for admission
to medical school, and if he is ac-
cepted, he would like to enter after
graduation. However, there is also
something else on his mind. "If I
should be offered a pro contract,"
he said, "I'd probably take it."
And who could blame him?

INDIANA QUARTET STRONG:
Second Place Plagues Mile Relay

By MARILYN HIGGINS
"Our relay is plagued by sec-
onds," claims Grant Scruggs, an-
chorman for the one mile relay
team.
The results of the Big Ten In-
door Meet would seem to verify
this comment. Although the com-
bination of Dave Hessler, Laird
Sloan, Dick Flodin, and Scruggs
covered the mile distance in
3:20.0, Indiana, an old foe, placed
first.
Scruggs commenting on the meet
said, "I thought we had a team
that could win if we had 'run in
the same heat that Indiana ran
in, we might have beaten them."
"One of the Best"
Coach Canham says that this

season's mile relay team "is one of
the best we have had." Comment-
ing on the second place in the
cbnference, he said, "Indiana has
probably one of the top teams in
the country."
Tomorrow the mile relay team
will compete in Cleveland. Bob
Brown, a regular member of the
outdoor mile relay, will take Hess-
ler's place in the foursome. With
the coming of the outdoor season,
Hessler will see action in the 220
yard dash and the 880 relay team.
Canham hopes to clock the out-
door mile relay at 3:15.0.
Only Lose One
The outdoor team will only lose
one member next year. Scruggs, a

senior and top quarter miler, is a
versatile runner. "Can run any-
thing," stated a team member.
Both Flodia, a sophomore, and
Brown, a junior, hope that prac-
tice with the relay will help them
to become better sprinters. Flodin
did well in the Big Ten Confer-
Foul Shooting will be held
tonight, Monday and Tuesday
in the Y-M Building.
-Earl Riskey
ence, placing third in the 300 yard
dash. He is hopins that the relay
will go out to the coast.
Brown is determined to make
the niile relay after narrowly miss-
ing qualifying in the Big Ten 440
yard dash.
Laird Sloan, a sophomore from
Montreal, came to Michigan be-
cause Jack Caroll, an old high
school friend was going to school
here. Probably Sloan's greatest
thrill in track was being lead-off
man in the British Empire Games.
Hessler indicated that his favor-
ite is the 220 yard dash and is
looking forward to doing the
sprint.

ager Frank McKinney splashed

United States yesterday in the
swimming competition of the Pan-
American Games.
McLane, former Yale University

the 400-meter free style crown by
beating out his teammate, Wayne
Moore, in 4:51.3, a games record.
The 16-year-old McKinney, not

from the stands, captured the 100-
meter backstroke title in the
