Swimmers Meet Springfield Tonight; Lopsided Win Expected in Contest

By Terry Straus

With tough meets in February against Princeton, Penn, and Yale only weeks away, the Harvard swimming team will get another opportunity to fatten its record when it takes on Springfield at 8 p.m. tonight in the IAB.

Brown came to Cambridge last Wednesday night and returned to Providence on the very short side of 78-35 shellacking. Tonight, the Crimson may have difficulty beating Springfield as badly but, nevertheless, should have no trouble notching an easy win.

Springfield, which has never beaten Harvard in swimming, will probably push the Crimson somewhat harder than Brown. They had little trouble slaughtering the hapless Bruins, but are still not a serious threat. "Where we won handily against Brown, we will be pressed closer for wins against Springfield," Coach Don Gambril said.

Gambril, working the team hard in order to prepare for the big grind in February, is training through this meet as he did last week against Brown. The experiments with swimmers in "off" events will continue as well. Dave Brum well, primarily a breast stroke and individual medley specialist, will probably swim the 200 yd. free and 200 yd. back, while sprinter Tim Neville will move to the 200 yd. fly.

Fred Mitchell, who false-started himself out of last week's 100 yd. free, will move up to the 1000 yd. free where, Gambril hopes, he will set a new school record.
