Jack Medica, of the University of Washington, one-half of the most famous arch-rivalry in the history of swimming, arrived in Cambridge yesterday and worked out in the Harvard Pool in preparation for the coming National Collegiate Swimming Championships, to be held here on Friday and Saturday.
Jimmy Gilhula, captain of the University of Southern California swimming team and the other half of the rivalry, will arrive in Cambridge today and will likewise swim in the pool to get accustomed to the Harvard surroundings for the duel in the nationals.
These two west-coasters have established a fight for records that had its culmination last week when Gilhula, swimming in the 20-yard Southern California pool broke 16 American marks in the course of a mile's swim.
Starting with the 500-meter swim, the Californian shattered every time up to the mile. Medica is the holder of four world's records and the claimant of another four, and in addition is the national collegiate title holder in the 220-yard, 440-yard, and the 1500-meter events.
The two water babies will meet in these three events in the nationals, and if there were no other entries in the meet, the spectators could be assured of a trio of broken records.
