Those are the only dimming victories the Badgers ever scored over lyiichijgan- The following . night they defeated Michigan State and stretched their dual-meet winning streak to 14 since losing to Indiana in Hawaii 'Dee 29, 1973. They will bid for No, 15 Friday night against Northwestern at the Nafatdnum, with Minnesota also swimming against the Wildcats. .'Still;-, this all might seem academic in light of the fact that the Badgers. must face Indiana again eventually. (Feb. 14 here). Few schools," if any, can match the Hopsiers in a dual meet. But there's more to it, according to Wisconsin Coach Jack Pettinger. Swimmers are concerned about victory,; true, but they also concentrate, on self -improvement better times, school records, and stature nationally. ' ., : .

''We're. realistic," he said looking, ahead to Indiana, 'in all events except the sprints we at least can. present a good' race. We're going to get beat in most - caixs; but- we can compete on a reasonable i level. ' 'Working out the pace we want to follow" will be one aspect of the Indiana meet, according to . Pettinger:: "Hopefully it will be a way of getting ready for the Big 10 for many of the kids and a few for the NCAA: "' . "We're a little more aware of . the situation than last year," he said of upcoming big meets. "Second or third in the Big 10 would be fine, but not fourth. Wc have the personnel to finish second. "We'd like to finish within the top dozen in the NCAA. We're capable of finishing anywhere from 16th to ninth. List year we were out of it. '-If you're in the top IS in the country, you're pretty damn good." - About a week ago, the Badgers returned tanned and healthy from 18 days in Hawaii. The trip . vras made possible because each swimmer kicked in some of his -own money, the Swimming Club helped, the learn is using bus travel to ease budgetary strain, and the Marines provided housing in a barracks in Ilawaii. "The whole team improved," Pettinger said of the experience. "The only ones who didn't are ATTENTION! ICE FISHERMEN OUTDOORSMEN We have clothes & boots to keep you warm to 605 below zero.
