who recently defended his outdoor
AAU crown at Santa Barbara, Cal.
Also in the running, however, for
this spot is junior John Sheremet,
Michigan's ace of the past season
and a performer capable of keeping
up with the best of them.
Hutchens Is Gone
And for the final freestyle lap,
Matt has phenomenal Gus Sharemet
to breeze along in his graceful, amaz-
ing style. While a sophomore last
year, the husky Detroit lad grabbed
the century titles in the Western
Conference and National Collegiate
warfare. In the recent outdoor AAU
meet, he finished third to Otto Jar-
etz. the speedy Chie<t go star.

If that were not enough, Charley
Barker, the Big Ten 50-yard sprint
champ, will also be found around
for freestyle duties afong with power-
ful John Gillis, Dobson Burton, Bill
Holmes and Tommy Williams, Com-
ing up from the freshman ranks will
be Jack Patton, a hard working
speedster who has made tremendous
progress since reporting to Matt just
about a year ago. Chuck Ferguson,
Bob West, Jim Garvey and Bruce
Allen art other capable newcomers
who may' fit into the picture.
Scharemet In Freestyle
Can you imagine the freestyle re-
lay corps that Matt could put to-
gether with the men that he has.
Last year, Hutchens, Gus Sharemet,


Barker and Gillis cracked the world's
record in the Collegiate meet. Only
Hutchens will be missing from this
great quartet, and Welsh, Holmes
or Williams will easily fill the bill in
the meets ahead.
Martin Will Dive
Benham is gone from. the diving
department, but remaining behind is
the cocky junior, Strother "T-Bone"
Martin and the veteran Jack Wolin,
two performers who will be consis-
tent point winners, especially with
Al Patnik having graduated at Ohio.
All in all, Michigan can't miss hav-
ifig a great team. There appears little
chance that Matt Mann will change
his hampionship brand of swimming
team during 1941.
