When they pull out of the South Station this morning. Coach Ulan's Varsity swimming team will be headed for the first really hard tests of the current season. Although they have won all their meets to date by overwhelming scores, it will be a different story tonight in Columbia's new York pool, tomorrow night in Princeton's Brokau pool. Both of these meets will count in the standing of the newly formed Eastern Intercollegiate Swimming League.

The Lion natators, with a record of one victory and one defeat, are the underdogs tonight, but their victory was over the Navy team 41-34, an indication of considerable power. Paced by Jack Thompson, free-styler and capable anchor man on the strong relay team of the Light Blue, Coach Ed Kennedy hopes his swimmers will have power enough to topple the Crimson, which he ranks with the Elis an "the cream of the newly created League."

The specialtymen of the Columbia team are backstroker Tom Finnerty and breaststroker Justin Callahan, and these two team up with Charlies Fox to form a dependable 300-yard medley relay combination; but unless there is an upset, both Finnerty and Callahan will be padding in a bath of Crimson wash tonight, for Ulen's two stars, Cummin and Jameson, should take, the back and breast strokes respectively, in easy stride.

On Saturday night the Crimson Lion killers will become Tiger hunters, and their task more difficult. Like Harvard, Princeton is undefeated and untested by any serious foe. That they have a strong team is amply shown by the 54 to 21 drubbing they gave a mediocre Fordham team in their last meet before midyear, three weeks age. This was the third win of the Tigers, who had previously sunk Rider and Light by lopsided scores.

One of the closet races in the second meet should come when breastsrokers Dick Hough of the Tigers and Greg Jameson of the Crimson dive into the pool for their 200-yard swim. The exploits of Jameson, who one week age set a pool record at Hanover of 2:32.6 are well known, while Hough did 2:33.2 in the Princeton-Fordham meet. Other top Tigers are Captain Howie Canoune in the 220, divers Cranston and Kelley, and the relay team of Harper, Stickel, Harwood and Bayliss.

In the sprints in both meets Olympian Charlie Hutter should have little difficulty, and ably assisted by Captain John Colony, Don Barker and Don McKay, the Tiger sprint squad under Van Oss will get lean pickings. Dario Berrizzi will strive to lead the field in the middle and longer distances, and will have a tougher time when he comes up against the speedy Bengal captain.
