When looking for the "hardest
way" to enter the water from a
diving board, competitive divers
are often faced with a great choice.
Each man is rated not only ac-
cording to the way he performs the
dive, but also the difficulty of the
dive he chooses to execute. A com-
petitor must select the most dif-
ficult dives he can do best, if he
is to succeed in championship
Thorough Judging
In the case of each dive, the
judges rate the diver on the scale
of 10 points. There are three
judges, and they base their scores
on the takeoff, execution, and en-
try into, the water of each dive
The scorekeeper adds up the

scores the judges give for each
dive, and then multiplies that total
by the degree of difficulty for the
dive. Each dive has a degree
acredited to it, ranging between
1.0 and 3.5.
- Three Positions
Each dive is made up of one or
a combination of three set posi-
tions, which can be combined in
many forms. In the tuck position,
a diver is rolled up in a ball, which
facilitates a large number of turns.
In the pike position the body is
bent only at the hips, with the
hands grasping the straightened
legs. The layout position is the
most difficult, as it requires the
diver to keep his body completely
Different Heights
Using these positions, the com-
petitors dive off different level
boards in different competition.
Collegiates use the one-meter, or
three-foot board, while in AAU
meets a one- and three-meter
board is employed along with a
10-meter tower.
In championship meets divers
are required to execute five dives
plus six optional ones from each
of the required groups of forward,
reverse, inward and half-twisting
dives. For dual meets a diver is
allowed five optional movements
plus one required form.

Added to all of these problems,
a diver is also faced with the usual
prejudices involved in subjective
judging, plus the great strain gone
through in perfecting the various
It is a rugged, but also a spec-
tacular sport. Michigan's swim-
ming team now boasts some of the
best collegiate divers in the coun-
try under the eye of diving coach
Bruce Harlan.

I Director Stands Out as Athlete,
Inventor, Author, Top Administrator


Product Development Engineer Gerald A. Maley, like
many other engineers, mathematicians and physicists,
came to IBM directly from college. Here he tells how
he put his E.E. degree to work in the exciting new field
of computer development.

Earl Riskey, Michigan I-M di-
rector, boasts of a triple nature-
administrator, inventor, and active
As director, he handles some 36
spcts which range from touch
football in the fall to baseball in
the spring with bowling, wrestling,
and handball added in, to mention
a few. In terms of size, leagues
accomodate about 180' teams in

football, some 225 in basketball
and 180 in volleyball.
Invented Paddleball
'In terms of inventive skill, he
found time early in his career at
Michigan to draw up the game of
paddleball. Originated in the
1930's, the game cught on during
World War II when service men
found it easy to learn and fun to
play. Now, the game, besides being
a regular feature of the I-M pro-
gram, is a national sport. Besides

"What really sold me," says Gerald Maley, "was the
way they approach engineering at IBM. I had expected
rooms full of engineers at desks. Instead, I found all the
friendly informality of my college lab."
An E.E., he came directly to IBM from the University
of Buffalo in 1953. Starting as a Technical Engineer,
he was immediately assigned to work, with two others,
on designing a small calculator. Jerry Maley learned
a great deal about computers in a very short time. Inci-
dentally, this small calculator has gone into production.
"It makes an engineer feel good," he says, "to see his
project reach the production stage-and to be able to
follow it through."
Promoted to Associate Engineer after sixteen months,
he became the leader of a nine-man team, assigning
problems to his group for solution, approving their
block diagrams and the models they built. A short
while ago, he was again promoted-this time to
Project Engineer. "A
particularly interesting
aspect of my present
job," Jerry Maley says,

opment of magnetic
cores-new memory
storage devices for elec-
tronic digital compu-
ters." His administra-
tive details have been
reduced to a minimum,

What about promotions?
When asked about advancement opportunities at IBM,
he says, "You can hardly miss in this field and in this
company. IBM sales have doubled, on the average,
every five years. Company expansion at this rate--
in a dynamic industry--
makes my future look
bright indeed." Since

continuing to be an active player,
he served as president of the Na-
tional Paddleball Association.
All-Around Athlete
Riskey's sport career began as
an all-around high school athlete
in Springfield, Ohio, where he
played football, tennis, basketball,
and swam.
In 1927, he moved to Ann Arbor
and assumed the post of assistant
I-M director under Dr. Elmer Mit-
When Dr. Mitchell was appoint-
ed physical education chairman in'
1942, Riskey moved into his pres-
ent position as director of the
Wolverine intramural program.
Also An Author
Sandwiched into his administra-
tive chores were two books which
hbe co-authored with Dr. Mitchell.
Both are of the instructional na-
ture, one dealing with sports for
recreation and the other on offi-
ciating. Between times, when not
running the program, Riskey en-
joys his "own game" of paddleball
or some handball to keep in shape.
His athletic ability is attested to
by the fact that he is a member
of Sigma Delta Psi, national hon-
orary athletic fraternity, and
serves on its board of directors at
Teaching Fellows
Working with him are seven
teaching fellows who are graduate
physical education majors from
Michigan and other schools. The
teaching fellows help to coordin-
ate the program while learning
their trade. Some former aids now
serve as directors at other colleges.
Besides running student compe-
tition, the I-M building also pro-
vides faculty sport events and the
building is open to co-recreation
each Friday.
Foreign Students Compete
Foreign students also make com-
plete use of the facilities, entering
teams in most leagues. Many times
they have their own league oper-
ated with the help of the Inter-
national Center and provide com-
petition for the students.
Further cosmopolitan touches
are added by visitors from many
countries who come to observe
Michigan's Intramural program.
