Lining Them Up
Fifty-Yard Swim Event To Watch Tonight
The feature event of this evening's swimming meet will be the fifty-yard sprint. While Jennings is clocked at 3-5 of a second faster than Scott, it is important to remember that he will be in a strange pool, and that Scott has been reported to have brought his time down to 24 seconds. However, the Lion flash is a formidable factor under any conditions. As a schoolboy he was a champion of the New York City school teams, and has had an enviable record since he has joined the ranks of collegiate swimmers. Last year his was the fastest time for the fifty turned in in any dual meet. Although he finished third to Thompson of Navy and Spence of Rutgers in the Intercollegiates, and was listed as fourth on the All-America ratings last year, for a Sophomore, this is a remarkable record.
Harvard's power tonight will lie in its specialty events, the backstroke and breaststroke. Captain Ed Stowell has been the Crimson mainstay in the backstroke for three years, taking the Intercollegiate Championship in his Sophomore year. Now by turning in times that are close to the one-minute, 42-second mark, he has put himself up among the college leaders, and should be able to finish among the first three in the intercollegiates this year.
Leventritt will have little trouble in winning tonight, but later he will have to face some stiff competition, notably Savell, the Yale Senior who broke the pool record here last year. Vic is now turning in about 2.37 over the 200-yard distance, while Savell can do 2.33 without much trouble. -by TIME OUT.
