springboard Artists Promise
Thrills In Big Water Carnival

A circus within a circus is in store
for those attending this Saturday
night's fourth annual Swim Carnival,
it became apparent today as Matt
Mann's fancy' divers cut their capers
in preparation for their act.
Led by the Varsity's Hal Benham
and Jack Wolin, the diving squad,
twelve strong, will do every kind
of twist, turn, and spin that ever has
been done off any man's spring board.
Coach Mann's unusual crop of frosh
spring-board artists will strut their
stuff off both the low and high
boards while Benham and Wolin, a
pair of the best divers in the nation,
will concentrate their efforts from the
high plank.
Will Try It Once
Freshman Jim Wilkinson, Chicago
star, who was runner-up last year in
the Illinois Interscholastic ranks, and

who told Matt yesterday "that he'd j
try anything once," has promised to
try a three and one-half forward
somersault. This dive is not listed
among the official stunts, and is con-
sidered next to impossible, yet the
cocky Chicagoan is sure he can do it.
Wilkinson's main asset in his spring
board work is the unusual height
which he gets on every dive, and it is
this start which should help to get
him around three and one-half times
before he smacks the surface of the
I-M pool.
Program Has 16 Events
Adolph Ferstenfeld, the third mem-
ber of the Varsity diving crew will
swear off the regular routine Satur-
day night, and put on a comedy act.
From between the moth-balls of a
trunk sealed in the early nineteen
hundreds, Adolph has gotten himself
a suit which he says is a "pip." In
this rig, which should make many of
the older spectators recall days gone
by, Fernstenfeld promises to perform
many a side-splitting antic off the
boards .
The entire program, which will
start promptly at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow
night, includes 16 events.
The famed Toronto Dolphinettes,
outstanding formation swimmers will
perform, and will also compete in
races against a powerful Detroit A. C.
aggregation which will be lead by
Helena Tomski, one of America's pre-
mier women free-style swimmers.
Helena is a sister of the Varsity's
Walt Tomski.
