Boilermakers being met at home. North-
western is also met once, and, with In-
diana, will be faced on the road.
   Wisconsin meets Iowa, Michigan
State, Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota
in home series. Last year, Iowa, Purdue,
Ohio State, and Indiana, each met twice,
handed the Badgers eight of their ten
conference defeats.
   The Badgers, with a thirteen-game
home schedule, meet Marquette at Mil-
waukee Arena on Wednesday, Decem-
ber 20 and play in the Holiday Festival
at Madison Square Garden, New York,
December 26, 28, and 30.
        Swimming Pool
        Plans Approved
THE LONG-AWAITED new swim-
    ming pool for University of Wis-
consin students has received a green
light from the Board of Regents. Final
plans and specifications for Gymnasium
Unit 1A, to be constructed on Observa-
tory Drive near the intramural playing
fields, were approved at the October
meeting of the Regents.
  Estimated cost of construction of the
new building was announced at $1,250,-
000. Plans call for a swimming pool, 60
by 75 feet, and a diving pool, 40 by 50
feet. Other facilities outlined include
lockers and shower rooms, a gymnasium
for physical education classes, and an
exercise area. Intramural groups, physi-
cal education classes, and Badger fresh-
men and varsity teams will use the
pools. Seats for 500 people will be pro-
vided for spectators at intercollegiate
swimming meets.
  University building authorities said
they expect construction to begin next
spring. The unit will require 16 months
to complete.
          Harriers Best
            Since 1953
W     ISCONSIN'S Cross Country team
    compiled a 4-1 dual meet record
and captured the Wisconsin State AAU
title leading up to the Big Ten and
NCAA championship meets late in No-
vember. The Badger runners defeated
Platteville, 16-47, Minnesota, 19-40,
Michigan State, 23-32, and Mankato
(Minn.) State, 15-50, while losing only
to Iowa, 27-31, in posting the school's
first winning record in the sport since
1953.
  Top runner for the Badgers was Rolf
Nielsen, a senior exchange student from
Eidsvoll, Norway who captured first
place in the four winning efforts, with
a best time of 20:09.2, in defeating the
Big Ten defending champion, Jerry
Young, Michigan State in their meeting
over Wisconsin's four mile course.
Badger Captain Don Dooley, Wauke-
sha, Wis., ran consistently in the top
four in each race, and tied with Nielsen
in the winning effort against Mankato
State.
  Other runners have been Don Loker,
fine junior from Appleton; Jerry Smith,
an improved senior from Hartford;
Brian Marcks, Black Creek, Wis.; Dick
Miller, Oregon, Ill.; and two good
sophomores in Joe Pruski, Chicago,
Ill., and Mike Manley, Milwaukee
(Washington).
