Swimming
Enters 37th
Year Here
By ED BERNREUTER
Swimming at the University of
Michigan had its beginning in
1919 as an informal club, but in
the years following developed into
a top varsity sport.
Early natators lacked ample
facilities for practicing and stag-
ing meets, but, with the comple-
tion of the Union Pool in the very
early twenties, swimming took its
place as a part of Michigan's
great sporting tradition.
The records show that in the
years 1920 to 1925 swimming grad-
ually grew in importance in the
University athletic picture,
Compete With YMCA
Early meets were held with
nearby YMCA squads and similar
a t hle t ic clubs. Intercollegiate
swimming was inaugurated during
the 1921-1922 season, but it was
several years before a full slate
of intercollegiate meets was held.
Matt Mann entered the Michi-
gan swimming picture in 1926,
thus! beginning a new era for
swimming. Mann, himself no new-
comer to the swim world, was
boy's swimming champion of his
native England at the age of nine
and British Empire champion at
only sixteen.
With the close of the 1954 sea-
son, the career of one of the finest
college coaches in the world came
to an end, temporarily.
Mann left Michigan after 29
seasons as head coach, famous not
only for his ability to consistently
turn out champions, but also as
a friend of the many thousands
of persons with whom he was as-
sociated during his long tenure.
16 Big Ten Crowns
His squads have captured a
total of 16 Conference champion-
ships and thirteen n ati o na l
championships.
During Mann's tenure as mentor,
his charges captured a total of 79
national individual titles, which
is almost three times the number
won by Yale and fifteen more
than have been garnered by Ohio
State's natators, not to mention
the numerous world, Conference,
and national record breaking per-
formances.
With Mann's departure in 1954,
August P. (Gus) Stager took over
the head coaching duties, and is
making every effort to gain an-
other Big Ten Crown, the most re-
cent being won in 1948.

a comfortable collar
you cannot outgrow
The new Arrow Lido shirt has no
top button at the collar; your
necktie alone closes the collar neatly.
And even if your neck size grows,
the "expandable" collar stays
comfortable. Get yours today-wear
it with a tie tonight-open at the
neck tomorrow. Priced from $5.00.

By The Associated Press
Herb Score, young, fireballer of
the Cleveland Indians, yesterday
was named American League
"Rookie of the Year" for 1956.
Score was named on 18 of the
ballots cast by the 24-man com-
mittee of baseball writers. Billy
Klaus, peppery shortstop for the
Boston Red Sox, was second with
five, and Norm Zauchin, also of
Bosox, was third.
The Indians signed the $60,000
bonus baby in 1953, and promptly
sent him to their Indianapolis
farm club, where he compiled a
2-5 won-lost record.
Score set the American Associ-
ation on fire in 1954, winning 22
while losing 5, and striking out 3310
batters for a new league mark.
Fanned 245 as Rookie
Score continued his spectacular
strikeout pace last season with the
Indians. He smashed all existing
American League records for
strikeouts for first year pitchers
by fanning 245.
Early in the season fans began
to clamor for a strike out duel
between Score and "Bullet Bob"
Turley of the New York Yankees.
However, the match failed to oc-
cur.
The 6'2", 185-pound fastball
artist also owns one of the best
curve balls in the major leagues.

Winning 16 games while drop-
ping 10, Score ranked fourth in
earned run percentage in the
American League, with 2.85.
Last year's rookie of the year
award also went to a pitcher, Bob
Grim of the Yankees. Grim had a
20-6 Won-lost record in 1954.
cM' Natators
Set For Trip
Michigan's swimming team will
leave tomorrow for Fort Lauder-
dale, Florida, where it will partici-
pate in the annual swim forum
there.
The forum, which will run from
December 17 through January
2 is presented each year by the
College Swimming Coaches of
America.
The Forum will consist of lec-
tures, a water show, and finally a
meet between the Eastern and
Western teams at the forum.
The trip will enable members of
the Wolverine squad to continue
their practice throughout the va-
cation in preparation for their
first collegiate meet of the year-
the Big Ten Invitational Meet,
held at East Lansing, January 7th.
