WEST POINT, N.Y. - Indiana

consecutive NCAA swimming and
diving championship yesterday in
the U.S. Academy pool.
The Hoosiers nipped second
place Southern California by
nineteen points. This win ties the
mark held previously by Michigan.
Six new American records were
set today making a total of 13 for
the meet.
In the biggest upset of the night,
Princeton's Charlie Campbell set
a new American record of 1:50.5 In
the 200-yard backstroke, while
beating Indiana's Mike Stamm
and Gary Hall.
John Kinsella of Indiana opened
the evening's activities by winning
the glowing 1650 yard freestyle.
Southern Cal's Tom McBrien and
Jim McConiga finished second
and third, respectively.
In the 100-yard freestyle, Ten-
nessee's Dave Edgar just touched
out USC's Frank Heckl for the
win. At this point in the meet, the
Trojans surged ahead of Indiana
for the first time.
Another new American record,

whole ball of wax," was set bys
Stanford's Brian Job in the 200-a
yard breaststroke. His clocking oft
2:02.95 beat his former record by
.4 of a second. Michigan's Stus
Isaac was ninth.
Going into the 100-yard butter- t

holding a slight edge. But in the
