Games. * s • * By NBA Service BERLIN, July 28,—With what generally is regarded ns the !cb In store for any of the units falls to the swimming 'contingent. Four years ago in Los Angeles, the Japanese carved out a healthy portion of laurels by completely dominating the aquatic events. . The chief Nipponese physical characters are short bodies, short anils, nnd abnormally nmve'rful lees. American swimmers nre Messed with longer readies, but thc took the crnwl stroke apart find overcome their lack or reach by the development of what practically Is a double arm pull. Uy pausing Ihe arm In the catch position in front of the hend Almost until the nrm on the opposite side joins it, they acquired a superior driving power'. A highly perfected and powerful let' drive makes this stroke practical. TJut n new crop of water sprites represents the United States In Berlin. It probably Is Ihe vouni;- cellent ba:id ol fencers In the Jnst few. years, but foil-wielding strictly is a native European sport, and us such leaves the Ynnkces ill n disadvantage. There Is little or no question In : regard to the basketball result. This new addition to the Olympic 'program should he dominated completely by the American array, which should have loo much finesse, skill in ball-lmmtllng, nnd experience for Its international rivals.. Washington's chjht-oarcd shell will make things very tough for j the rest, of the sweep swingers, but. the four-man event'nnd single sculls will bring oul. plenty of opposition for tills country—perhaps too much. H won't be-nt all surprising If the Held hockey team gets nowhere, and the same Koe.s for (lie rugby football squad. These two sports nre extremely |»putar on the continent. The type O f ELECTRICS FfiSE TEST PCI5 Clothiers' May Make Win- nine; Streak Brief; Builders Play Druggists the formidable outfit' of a month ago.

The American women's track and field .contingent, should bring back n championship, us long as Helen Stephens, Arm O'Urlcn, nnd » few others are up to pur, but thc feminine lineup will have to do much fn.sL splashing to dominate the lUjuntlc scene, especially after losing Mrs. Eleanor Hohii Jarrett. Holland and Japan are expected to furnish plenty of pyrotechnic!. In women's swimming. As In Los Angeles four years ago, Olympic and world records In fill lines are expccled to be .scattered all over Helch Sport Field, with the Americans doing <i lull share of thc wrecking.
