Quartet Makes
Unique Record
Coach Mann's Prophecy
Of Victory Fulfilled By
Fehsenfeld And Crew
When Michigan's quartet of div-
ers placed first, third, fourth and
fifth in the three-meter (high) board
event of the National Collegiate
swimming meet Saturday to "win"
the title for the Wolverines, one of
the most unusual records in collegiate
swimtming was established.
The performance in the high board
made the sixth consecutive time in
two years that Wolverine divers had
captured four out of the six places in
the National and Big Ten meets.
Only the record-shattering assaults
of Jack Kasley, today the outstand-
ing breast-stroker in the world, could
parallel the showing of the divers.
Led by Capt. Frank Fehsenfeld the
Varsity divers won four places in
the Conference meet last year and
then repeated in both the one-meter
and three-meter events in the Na-
tionls. This year, despite an off-day
in the Big Ten meet, the quartet
went through their act all over again I
and fulfilled the phophecy of Coach
Matt Mann that they would win the
national title for Michigan.
Johnston Upsets Fehsenfeld
Friday Der Johnston upset Fehsen-
feld, the defending champion who
placed third while Ned Diefendorf
and Ben Grady placed fifth and
sixth. Fehsenfeld came back the
next day, however, to win the high
board with Diefendorf third, Grady
fourth, and Johnston fifth. The
points collected by the divers made
up half of Michigan's total of 30
and would have been enough to tie
for fourth with Medica in the team
competition behind Iowa's 21 and
Yale's 17.
Kasley, after giving Michigan the
necessary margin to assure it of vic-
tory in the medley relay in the record
breaking time of 2:58.2 and swim-
ming a lap in the 400-yard relay,
came back Saturday to turn in the
outstanding individual performance
of the meet, smashing all the existing
records in the breast-stroke.
Surprise World Mark
Swimming the necessary 200 yards
in the unbelievable time of 2:22.5,
far below the world mark of 2:25.2
set by Jacques Cartonnet of France
last year, to outdistance all of the
other entrants and make Cartonnet's
time his only competition, Kasley
went on to establish a new interna-
tional record in the 200 meters and
a new American mark in the 220
yards. The only reason that the
Michigan star failed to set a world
record in the last distance was that
none existed.
The Wolverine junior's time in the
200 meters of 2:37.2 surpassed Car-
tonnet's mark of 2:42.6 by almost
five seconds and his 2:38.4 in the
220 yards broke Johnny Higgin's
record by exactly five seconds.
Michigan's other first came in the
medley with Harry Rieke swimming
back-stroke, Bob Mowerson, the
free-style, and Kasley the breast-
stroke. This trio broke its own meet
record of 3:00.8 with a time of 2:58.2.
Frank Barnard placed fourth in
the 1500 free-style and the 440-yard
free style and swam a lap of the
400-yard relay in which Michigan
plced fifth with Drew, Mowerson,
and Kasley.

The simple mechanical details of cigarette manufacture are of
surprising importance. Upon them depend the physical prop-

combustion and the constituents of its smoke.
