The past semester has been a memorable one in Tuley's swimming annals.
More than one record was shattered and several tied, although only three meets
were held. The semester was started by the Chicago University lnterscholastics,
in which three men entered-Appelman, Retsky and Fogan. Although none
placed because of bad starts and other handicaps, they all came close to making
During the semester. as every semester for the last five years, an interclass
swimming meet was held which. contrary to all traditions and customs. the Fresh-
man won. The second time, this was due to the fact that 'cT" men were not
permitted to swim and so the upper classes lacked material. Sonkin. a freshman
was high point man. Sonkin broke several school records and amassed an astound-
ing total of points to enable his class to lead. Johnson, another frosh also scored
heavily. Holstein and Greenspahn represented the juniors.
Another feature of the semester was the meet with the Hi-Y. At this meet,
Fogan, 'veteran breast-stroke came to the fore in his old style, and was high point
man, Collinet, another veteran coming second. The meet was easily won by the
school team even though many of the swimmers had not attended.
To Ben Edidin, swimmer and managerg to Retsky, Captaing and to Max
Appelman, veteran breast-stroke and carry man: to lVIeyer Fogan dependable
breast-stroke man: to Collinett. to Yetzner, to Sherman, To Roz, to Rothstein,
to Sonkin, and to johnson belong the credit for making this semester, one that will
stand out in Tuley's ever brilliant swimming history.
Following is an individual account of the men:
BEN EDIDIN as manager has done great things. He has worked and toiled,
striving to keep his men eligible, to gain meets-to run them successfully. Assist-
ant Manager last semester-Manager this semester, he has really and truly de-
served the "T" which he got. It is a pity that Ben Edidin leaves us.
LOUIS RETSKY, Captain has always been a great crawl man, always scoring

ln some of the events the blue and gold was represented by one or two men against
the Milwaukee Avenue team's six or seven. The outstanding stars of this meet
were "Davie'i Mandelbaum and "IZ" Perlow. Others who made meritorious
performances at this meet were NAI" Wlolf in the high jump and Urfrig in the three
The defeat took away some of the pep from the team and put them in the
"dumps'l for a week or so, but their spirits were soon revived and they started
practicing for the outdoor season. As this article goes to press, they are training
Manager Perlow assured the school that the team 'has prospects of a success-
ful season. He is already negotiating for meets with our old rival Austin and with
our new rival, Elmhurst.
In addition to the dual meets, there are still several events of importance on
the teamis schedule. Among these is the City Interscholastic, the State Outdoor
lnterscholastic, and the National meet. Although their prospects of placing in
the State and National meets are very slight, there is, however, a strong possi-
bility of their placing in the city meet.
The few encounters that we have had, were productive of new talent. Such
performers as Samuels, Surge, Rothenberg, Cohn, Leader, Perlman, Fred Vlleiss,
Matt VVeiss, VVolf, Rothstein, Urfrig, Goldman, Barash, Ginsberg. Perlin, and
Comess, proved to be of great value to the team. The old reliables, Rydell, Brom-
berg, Mandelbaum, Perlow, Grossberg, Feldman, Comess and Dubrovsky were
not lacking in excellent performances.
The prospects of next season are very bright, since few of the team are gradu-
ating. The serious losses through graduation will be, Rydell in the high jump,
Bromberg in the hurdles and sprints, Samuels in distance events, Ginsberg in the
440 and dashes, lfVeiss in three jumps and shot put, and Matt Weiss in the sprints.

for Tuley in meets. He has ably selected and assisted in every way possible,
as an earnest and hard working Manager. He is a "T" man and has earned his
"T" by hard and fast swimming.
MAX APPELMAN has been connected with Tuleyls swimming team ever since
he has been in school. It is only the semester before this that he came to the front.
As a breast-stroke man we must search far to find his equal. As a carry man he
is unbeatable. He has set and still hold's Tuley's head carry record: O8 3-5,
only 3-5 of a second away from city record time. He and Retsky are Tuley's
only swimming team "T" men. Max achieved his UT" by placing in the city
interscholastics. The swimming team and all Tuley regrets the loss of Max Appel-
man due to his graduation.
MEY'ER FOGAN is one of the best breast-stroke men in Tuley. He has never
failed to place in a meet and has always come in with a point or so when it was
needed. Besides his ability as a breast-stroke man, he also swims in the carrys.
"Mike" is also graduating.
AL COLLINET is a back stroke and crawl man of no mean ability. Always
eligible-always to be depended upon. He has always been one of the upholding
of the swimming team. Collinett still has another semester in which to display
his ability and earned a HTH.
MSIDN SHERMAN has always been one of the necessary elements of Tuley's
swimming team. As a crawl man, few can compare with him. Endowed with
speed and endurance he has carved out a niche for himself in Tuley's history.
Sherman is only a Junior at present and so has still another year to swim for his
RoTHsTEIN due to his baseball activities has not been with the team as much
as he once was. Rothstein is Tuley's best back stroke man and a crawl man who
can be depended on to get points.
ALEX Roz, tall and slender, is built well for a swimmer and his swimming shows
it. In the year or more that Roz has left he will amaze his swimming contem-
'LMIKER XTETZNER is a swimmer of great versatality. Plunging is his great
speciality and he can plunge across the tank with no difficulty at all. At the
crawl stroke he has gained several points in the interclass meet. Vetzner still
has a semester to show himself.
SONKIN is the Freshman swimming marvel. High point man in the interclass
meet, breaker of Tuley records he ranks with Appelman and Retsky as the schools
fastest swimmers. A great deal is to be expected of Milt.
FRED JOHNSON also a Freshman is a breast stroke man of ability. In the three
or more years left for him to show his ability much is expected of him.
