(Second of Two Parts)
This weekend the Wolverine na-
tators travel to Columbus, Ohio to
meet top-rated Ohio State in the
final dual meet of the season.
The Buckeyes rate as the power
of the Big Ten again this season,
and off the season's record, it will
take a tremendous effort on the
Wolverine's part to upset them.
Have Potential
Despite the loss of the Wardrop
twins via suspension, the Maize
and Blue still must be rated as a
team with enough potential to
cause Ohio State a lot of trouble,
and with a little luck, might even
upset them.
Michigan's diving which had
been rated pre-season as one of
its biggest weakness, has turned
out to be one of the stronger points.
With Charlie Bates, John Mur-
phy and John Nancy, the Wolver-
ines have three of the better div-

ers in the conference. Bates was
undefeated in conference compe-
tition until last weekend in the
Indiana meet when Murphy beat
If Ohio State does not improve
on their times in the recent North-

even better chance of upsetting
them. The Buckeyes won, but

unbeatable on their times of that
