An Australian by birth and ac-
cent, and a national swimming
champion, John Davies, '53 (pro-
nounced Dyvies) has cut out a
busy school life for himself as
staff assistant at the Internation-
al Center and a breaststroker on
the swimming team.
Well liked for his infectuous
smile and keen sense of humor,
Davies spends half his life on
campus explaining that he is not
the John Davies who works on The
Daily and makes disparaging com-
ments About Michigan coeds, and-
that he is not the John Davies on
the engineering council.
HOLDING the Australian rec-
ords in the 220 yard, 440 yard and
550 yard breast stroke, which he
set in 1947 and 1948, Davies ad-
mits he came to Michigan to swim
under Mat Mann.
Born in Sidney, New South
Wales, he attributes the early
start of swimming career to the
locat n of S i d n e y Harbor,
which was "practically right

"You don't g e t competitive

there is only one meet a year," he
remarked. "Instead, you join a
private swimming club which
holds many contests with rival
clubs throughout the state and
IN SUCH a club Davies won his
first state breast stroke champion-
ship in 1946. He repeated this tri-
umph the next two years, as well
as copping first place in the na-
tional meets.
This success "threw him into
the Olympics," according to the
tall, unassuming Australian and
so he went to London in 1948 to
enter the world wide contest,
where he came out fourth, be-
hind Bob Sohl of Michigan.
Against the wishes of his par- -
ents, Davies came to the United
States from London, first as a
tourist, and then he decided to
stay to get a college degree, in

tom, Davies worked after he fin-

is much easier and people much
