Article 100 c.1961

Western High didn't realize there were so many ways to lose a swimming meet as it has encountered this season. 
Western has the individual stars but lacks depth and has lost meets to schools which Western outscored in firsts. 
Western won six of 11 firsts yesterday while losing to Redford, 55-51. This time, however, it was a disqualification which spelled defeat.
Jim McNairy won the individual medley but was disqualified for an improper turn. The race went to Dennis Manrique, another Western swimmer. Redford, however, placed second and third and these four points, plus those in the free style and medley relays, decided the meet.
"Perhaps things will straighten out in the league championship meet next week," Coach Wilbur Gunnerson said.  "It was a long way home for us when Redford won." 
Jim MacMillan set two Public School League records while leading Eastern to a 70-34 triumph over Southeastern. The 17-year old senior swam the 50-yard freestyle in 22.6 seconds and the 100 in :50.8. Dick Davis gave Eastern two more firsts in the 200-yard individual medley and 400-yard freestyle.
