Halo Hlrose Hopes To Win Other Crowns In Swimming For Ohio State This Season COLUMBUS, O., May 18, (NBA) .-When Keo Nakama, Ohio State's .swimming ace for four years, sailed for his native Hawaii last fall with 17 tank titles in his possession, coaches of the Bucks' aquatic squad breathed a deep sigh of ii'Kiet.

A memLer of a machine gun platoon through some of the heaviest lighting^ in France and Italy, Hirose has received five battle stars, the combat Infantry badge and a presidential Unit Citation. Halo says: "But no Purple Heart. I gucs: T was lucky." Hirose and Nakama learned to swim as boyhood pals at Punncnc where swimming—and not baseball or football—is the No. 1 spoii. While Halo is i\ sprint stay Keo performs best in the longei events.
