By CARL RISEMAN
Michigan's swimming and div-
ing coaches, Gus Stager and Bruce
Harlan were tossed into the North
Carolina swimming pool Saturday
evening - and they loved it.
The reason for the dunking -
Michigan had just clinched its
first NCAA swim title since 1948
by beating Yale, 69-61, at the Cha-
pel Hill, N.C., pool.
After the nationals, Stager left
for Daytona Beach, Fla., the site
of the National AAU Swimming
Meet this coming Thursday, Fri-
day, and Saturday.
Kimball, Myers Lead Contingent
Tomorrow diving coach Bruce
Harlan leaves with a sizable Mich-
igan delegation spearheaded by
national champions Dick Kimball
and Fritz Myers and big point
getters Dick Hanley and John
Narcy.
The other Michigan entries will
be freestyler Carl Woolley, who
was ineligible for collegiate com-
petition, Alvaro Gaxiola, outstand-
ing freshman diver from Ann Ar-
bor, and backstroker John Smith,
another leading freshman .
All of the Michigan entries will
enter unattached, except Myers
who will swim for Detroit Parks
and Recreation.
Getting back to last weekend's
competition starting with the
grueling 1500-yd. freestyle on
Thursday night, the Wolverines
showed they were in contention all
the way. Myers won the marathon
race with Pete Fries placing sixth.
The Maize' and Blue picked up
eight points, but trailed ppwerful
Yale by one.
Sees Chance for Title
"Myers victory in the 1500
gave us unexpected points and
convinced Gus and me that the
team had an excellent chance for
the title," remarked Harlan.
Yale did as the Michigan
coaches expected on Friday, end-
ing the day with 45 points, but

Michigan didn't pick up three
points it had expected and trailed
Yale by 11.
Hanley, a first place hope in
the 220-yd. freestyle, lost out to
Indiana's great star, Bill Woolsey.
Michigan's other first place hope,
Cy Hopkins in the 200-yd. breast-
stroke defeated his principal op-
ponents, Barry Yap of Indiana
and Michigan State's Paul Reinke,
but was surprised by Oklahoma's
Julien Dyason in a close finish.
The Wolverines picked up more
points than expected in the diving
with Kimball clinching the low
board crown and Narcy and John
Murphy finishing third and fifth,
respectively.
Wins Three Events
Tim Jecko of Yale started the
Saturday evening races with his
third victory in the nationals,
winning the 100-yd. butterfly. The
fabulous Eli sophomore is rated
with OSU's Al Wiggins as one of
the greatest swimmers in the
world today. Not since Yale's John
Marshall performed the trick in
1951 has the Nationals seen a
triple winner.
Myers put on a brilliant exhibi-
tion in the three day meet as he
personally accounted for 13 points
with a first and two fourths.
Kimball became Michigan's only
double winner with his high board
win. Murphy finished a surprise
third. Kimball was pressed by
SMU's Ron Smith but was flaw-
less under pressure.
If the medley relay went ac-
cording to the qualifying round,
Michigan would have tied with
Yale for the championship. But
Don Adamski, Fred Mowery, Hop-
kins and Hanley swam the race of
their lives.
Hanley came from a body
length behind to tie Michigan
State for first as he raced the fi-!
nal hundred in his best time ever,
.48.9.

'Kids Lead in I-M Standings

By DAVE LYON <
Although Michigan entered only
five wrestlers in the NCAA cham-
pionship meet last weekend, it
managed to finish ahead of all
other Big Ten squads, including
some full teams, in the team point
totals.
By finishing four places ahead
of tenth-place Minnesota's eight-
man team, the Wolverines partial-
ly avenged the one-point loss of
the Conference title to the Goph-
ers March 9.
Two of Michigan's five entries,
Big Ten champions Max Pearson
at 130 lbs., and 157-pounder Mike
Rodriguez, battled their way past
several opponents in their respec-
tive divisions, only to get beaten
in the finals.
Pearson and Penn State's two-
time Eastern Intercollegiate 130-
lb. titlist Johnny Johnston, both
of whom Coach Cliff Keen rates
"tremendous wrestlers," met in a
match which lived up to expecta-
tions.
A controversial decision by the

referee proved instrumental in de-
ciding the outcome of the 157-
pound title battle between Rodri-
guez and Doug Blubaugh of Okla-
homa A&M.
After Blubaugh had picked up
two points because of an "illegal
slam" which Rodriguez used early
in the match, Blubaugh, accord-
ing to Keen, "did not make one
offensive move afterward."
Rodriguez, who racked up four
straight opponents on falls pre-
liminary to his final match would
"undoubtedly have been named
outstanding wrestler" of the meet
had he won his final match, ac-
cording to Keen. Rodriguez an-
nounced last night he will compete
in the 160-lb. division of the na-
tional AAU tournament to be
held at Waynesburg, Pa., Wednes-
day through Friday.

The emphasis is on youth as far
as the Wolverines' baseball team's
present outfield group is con-
concerned.
The list of 9 prospective fly-
catchers contains 7 under-class-
men and only 3 lettermen.
Outdoor practice time has been
' quite limited and consequently
Coach Ray Fisher has tentatively
scheduled to start two of last sea-
son's regulars along with a soph-
omore for whom he has high
praise.

for right and left fields, respec-
tively, provide the experience of
previous Big Ten competition.
John Herrnstein, regarded by
Fisher as an "outstanding young
fellow", will open in center.
Lacks Speed Demons
Fisher is quick to point out that
the outfield boasts no outstanding
speedsters of fly-chasers like Jim
Piersall. Herrnstein and Bob Seal-
by, a returning letterman switch-
ing from first base, are the only
fleet men in the group.
Sealby has the top chance of
crashing the starting outfield line-
up and will lead off against right-
handed pitching when Fox or
Herrnstein are pitching.
John Art", a junior, is descrbied
by Fisher as a "good ball-hawk"
but had trouble hitting last year.,
Another junior. Bill MacPhee,
is making a transition from catch-
ing chores to outfield duty. He was
forced to give up catching because
of throwing difficulties.

That's why our laundry rinses your clothes with four to six
changes of water. To the final rinse, a special rinsing
agent is added. It removes dulling soap film from clothes
