SWIMMING TO START SOON
Interelass Contests Likely; No Inter
collego Meet This Year.
Classes in swimming will start right
away, Dean Walker announced yesterday.

athletics the last few days and swimming
is expected to take a large number of
men as all men will be required to pass
s swimming test before they can gradu

There will be no varsity team in swim
ming or interscholastic meet this year
but there will undoubtedly be interclass
contests and perhaps a doughnut series.
Bill Morrison and Harold Grey for the
seniors have both experience and ability
and in an interelass coiitest would be
strong contenders for first honors.
Newton Ester should show up well for
the juniors and Julian Ueslie is expected
to head the sophomores.
Air. Walker urges all men not ip other
athletics to get out for this indoor sport
