(EDITOR'S NOTE: J. Fred Lawton,
111, author of the lyrics of "Varsity,"
is vacationing in Scotland, and visited
the home of Michigan's famous swim-
mers, Jack and Bert Wardrop. His
account of this visit in a series of
three letters was made available to
The Daily by the Michigan Alumnus.)
BY J. FRED LAWTON
GLASGOW, Scotland - Please
excuse the pencil and the scribble,
because I am writing this on a bus
travelling from Glasgow to Moth-
erwell, Scotland, on my way to see
where those famous Michigan
twins, Jack and Bert Wardrop,
first began swimming.
Now passing through the small
town of Uddingston, next Bothwell,
then Hamilton, and after nearly
an hour from Glasgow the con-
ductor shouts out a broat Scottish
MOTHER-R-R-RWELL!
So I get off and ask my way to
the Motherwell Baths, which
proves to be just across the street.
The tall lady collecting admission
fees (twopence each) said, "We
have had 650 boys this morning.
We expect 750 this afternoon.
Would you care to have a look?"
Pool Full of Boys
I had a look, - at a large pool
full of boys, and I swear a few
very much resembled Jack and
Bert! Most were just enjoying
themselves on the hot day. A few
were racing each other in dead
earnest, and I thought, "Some day
Group of 20
To See Mexico
On Study Tour
A special workshop study tour
to Mexico will be offered by the
University's summer program in
comparative education.
Scheduled to run from July 31
to Aug. 13, the workshop will en-
able a class of 20 to study at first
hand the training of teachers of
Latin America at the UNESCO
Pundamental Education Center at
picturesque Lake Patzcuara, Mex-
ico. ,
The by following' teams of
trainees to small Indian villages
in the region surrounding the
Center, the workshop members will
see old and new methods of com-
munity and adult education. .
The workshop gives two hours of
graduate credit in Education. It
will be directed by Ronald S.
Anderson, instructor in education.
The group will leave Willow Run
Airport July 31 and arrive in Mex-
ico City the same day after a
flight of ten hours. The trip to
Patzcuaro will be by train on Aug.
1. A return trip by air is scheduled
for August 13.
Entire cost of transportation, in-
cluding round-trip by air, is $200.
Cost of meals and lodging is not
excessive because of the extremely
favorable exchange rate now pre-
vailing, and will cost each member
between $50 and $100 Anderson
said.

the real competitors may go to
school in Ann Arbor 3600 miles
'away from this wee Scottish town."
O nthe wall in a row are pictures
of championship swimming teams.
There's Jack Wardrop in the back
row of the 1946 team, age 13. In
the 1947 group Jack and Bert are
in the back row. 1948 they are in
the back row again. Also in 1949
and 1950 teams.
I asked Jack Gibson, bath at-
tendant, "Why the back row, in
every picture" Said he, "They are
modest lads, away back in the
photographs but always in front in
the pool!"
The Wardrop Home
Now it's time to go through this
manufacturing town to the Ward-
rop home, to meet the parents of
our twins. So I saunter along
Merry St. through the heart of
Motherwell, noting the long lines
of chimney pots atop the houses
on the residential streets. Now I
am passing J. Baird and Sons, at
Park St.
I go into Peter's Place (The Cafe
Merrina). Peter tells me the Ward-
rop twins like his ice cream. Peter
(an Italian) also said he has a
cousin in Texas. Do I know him?
He tells me 26 Wilson St. (the
Wardrop home) is just down the
street, turn to the right.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Rob-
ert W. Wardrop is small and neat,
with the prettiest garden (in my
opinion) in Motherwell. Situated
on a corner, the house is bordered
by a green, newly cut hedge which
runs along the front and side.
Between the neat gravel walks are
neat trimmed lawns and flowers.
[saw Catnip, lavender, peonies and
pinks. Strings of sweea peas along
the back garden wall.
No One Home
I knocked. No one home.' But
neighbors took me in, brought a
cup of tea, treated me like a long-
lost brother! They' saw my M
Club button! We talked of the
twins. No real Michigan grads
could have been more enthusiastic.
Mrs. Wardrop was away, they said,
visiting relatives, and Mr. Wardrop
would be leaving in two weeks to
join her. But I must go with them
now to meet Bob Wardrop at his
place of work.
A newly acquired friend, Bob
Bryson, took me to meet James
N. Tollan, Editor of the Motherwell
Times. One the way we met "Lac-
hie" McDowell, age 19, friend of
the twins, who asked me to give
his regards.
Also a Mr. Foy, of the Mother-
well City Offices. With a burr in
his voice he said, "They are guid
Ambassadors." Soon I was shaking
hands with one of the most charm-
ing personalities it has been my
good fortune to meet -- Bob Ward-
rop, father and Jack and Bert.
The United States grows enough
apples in a year to provide 80 for
every man, woman and child in
the country.
