Coach Harold S. (Muscleman) Ulen brought his Varsity swimming squad downstairs to the pool yesterday, after almost two months of conditioning exercises a la Fradd.
Twenty-five men started tank workouts under Ulen's direction, while 60 candidates for the 1942 team began the season's training presided over by Coach Larry A. (Pete) Peterson. The Varsity begins its season on December 17 when it will meet a formidable Alumni team including Charlie Hutter, last year's captain and star, possibly Bill Kendall, Australian flash, and backstroker Graham Cummin, former intercollegiate record-holder.
The Yardlings open their competitive season against Lynn Y.M.C.A. December 16. Mentor Peterson as usual has preserved an angelic silence about anything concerning prospects of his charges, but it is understood that, as in the case of the Varsity, most of his material will have to be built up, there being a dearth of prep-school stars in '42 at present.
