Coach Hal Ulen has selected 11 of his best swim squad members to make the trip tomorrow to New Brunswick, New Jersey, at the Rutgers pool, for the annual National Collegiate A.A. championships.
The entries are as follows: Hutter, 50, 100, free relay; Kendall, 220, 440, free relay; Barker, 50; Cummin, 150 backstroke, modley relay; Berizzi, 200 breast stroke, medley relay; Curwen, 100 or 220, free relay; McKay, medley and free relays; Stowell, 100 and free relay; Coleman, 1500 meters; Greenhood, Dana, dives. Each man is limited to three events, and Ulen may make considerable changes in the line-up if he sees fit.
Buckeyes Offer Threat
Harvard is conceded about an even chance to take team honors at the N.C.A.A. events, with Ohio State and Michigan the biggest threats to Crimson supremacy. A lot will depend on the breaks. According to the times both have turned in this season, Hutter and Kendall ought to take between them the two sprints and the two "distance" races. If Captain-elect Rusty Greenhood can come through with a third in the dive to Ohio State's superb artists, Patnik and Patterson, the Crimson's point total will be bolstered. The medley team should place second to Princeton's American record-holding trio.
Also, if Frank Coleman can dig himself a second or third in the metric mile, if Harvard can beat Michigan's dazzling free relay team, and if some more "if's" come true, Captain Hutter and his mates may conclude Harvard's best season with a national championship.
Harvard defeated Yale, but so did Michigan, and Ohio State conquered the Wolverines twice, so predictions are difficult. It's hard to tell if Curwon and Stowell will compete in certain events, and if they do, it'll be hard to forecast the outcome. One thing is pretty sure. If Harvard does win, probably anyone around the Rutgers pool after the meet will be able to persuade Coach Ulen to do a dynamic one and one-half gainor, lay-out, off the highboard. It is rumored that Hal does this every time his team wins a National crown.
