Oregon Swim Trio Competes Today Yale University Scene of NCAA Championships Jack Dallas, Sherm Wetmore, Jerry Macdonald Paddle This is an important day in the lives of three University of Oregon swimmers in far away New Ha ven, Connecticut. They’re swimming in the Yale university pool in quest of honors for themselves and Ore gon in the annual National Col legiate swim championships. Jack Dallas, Sherm Wetmore, and Jerry Macdonald are the three Webfoots—a trio of the north west's speediest mermen. Sent hack east through generous contribu tions of Oregon fans as a result of a “March of Dimes” movement, the Ducks are expected to make a credible showing. Hold Many Records Dallas is holder of pool, dual meet, northern division, and coast conference marks in the Ijreast stroke, while Wetmore holds a flock of the same titles in his own specialty, the backstroke. Jerry Macdonald is the squad’s free style artist and like Dallas and Wet more is undefeated in college com petition. The trio holds a coast mark in the medley relay, set this winter, and will attempt to garner points] in the national meet in that event. ] With Oregon entries in three in dividual events in addition to the relay race, Coach Russ Cutler ( (who couldn’t make the trip) be-; lieves the boys stand a good chance to earn the school some points. Coast marks held by Wetmore and Dallas in the backstroke and breast stroke, respectively, are within striking distance of outstanding times turned in by eastern swim aces. First Since ’36 Dallas and Wetmore are juniors in competition, and teamed with Sophomore Macdonald, they form the first University of Oregon swim group to enter the national championships since back in 1936 W'hen Jim Reed and Chuck Hurd went back and won all-American honors. Coach Rus calls Dallas and Wet more “my all-Americans” and de clares they belong just as much in that category as do the official j ones. Cutler wants to thank students, faculty, townspeople, alumni, and all persons who contributed to the “March of Dimes” movement on ] behalf of himself and Swimmers: Jack Dallas, Sherm Wetmore, and Jerry Macdonald for their speedy and enthusiastic cooperation in making the eastern journey pos sible.
