SWIMMERS TANGLE WITH PROVIDENCE BOYS' CLUB

VISITORS BUCK ODDS, BUT OFFER SOME GOOD PERFORMERS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Providence Boys' Club splashers will have a tough nut to crack tomorrow night at 8:15 o'clock in the Indoor Athletic Building pool when Coach Hal Ulen's Varsity swimmers meet them for the fifth Crimson meet of the current season.

While Providence has a handful of stars who stand out as fine swimmers in any league, it is expected that Charlie Hutter and his mates will outshine them for the evening, not only because of the Crimson's superior individual performers, but on account of their greater reserve strength, which will mean a lot of second places as well as firsts.

Rhode Islanders Buck Odds

Providence can only be given a very slim outside chance of taking the meet, but Babula, with 24-second 50, and 55-second 100 yard free-style races to his credit, will do his best to annex some points. He was seen here last week in the Harvard Interscholastics, and his team-mate, Gibbons, was seen here in January 19 on the Brown Freshman team. Gibbons, a short, slight youngster has shown extraordinary pluck and endurance in distance events, turning in a 5:14.9 440 against the Yardlings, after placing second in a 2:22 220 event.

Anthony Soltyslak, of the famous Providence swimming family, will be up against Dario "Fritz" Berizzi and Phil Walker in the 220-yard breast-stroke.

Cutler Out for Season

Eric Cutler's doctors have finally forbidden him to swim for the rest of this year, so the Varsity will have to wait awhile for the services of the holder of the Freshman 220 and 440 records. Hal Ulen, Gil Bettman, and Jim Curwen are all holding their breath to see if the two latter will get off pro. With Curwen around, it's possible that a few records may fall in the 440-yard open relay. And it's possible even if he isn't around, if Dons Barker and McKay, Will Kendal and Charlie Hutter can do it
