The varsity swimming team faces a weak M.I.T. squad at 7:30 tonight at the Tech pool in what should prove an easy victory for the undefeated Crimson. Coach Hal Ulen predicted that his squad "won't have much trouble at all."
Ulen's confidence seems justified after the varsity's convincing win over a fairly strong Army team in its opener. Though he credited the Cadets with having a good team and noted that many races were close, Ulen remarked that the team did better than he had expected.
Ulen expects to use his regulars until he builds up a convincing lead, at which time he plans to put in many second stringers. The regular record-breaking 400-yard medley relay team of Bill Murray, Jim Stanley, John Hammond, and Ron Mischner will start in order to provide them with experience in a different pool.
Experience Important for Sophomores
Experience will be an important factor tonight when a large number of sophomores start in the late events, especially the final 400-yard freestyle relay. Ulen wants to give his sophomores as much chance as possible in non-league meets. He noted that "there is quite a difference between freshman and varsity competition," a difference which "most sophomores don't realize when they come up."
Dick Seaton and Konrad Ulbrich will start in the 200-free and Pete Zemo in the 50-free. The dive will also remain the same, but Ulen refused to promise who would start in the late events. He said that would depend on the score of the meet.
In the Army meet, Hammond and Stanley, both juniors, looked extremely good.
