by HARVEY BARCUS
Disqualification of its medley relay, because one of the members
failed to make a proper turn, lost Redford a dual swimming meet
Cody won, 53-48. The medley disqualification deprived Redford of
eight points, more than enough to win.

doubles, Westcott leading in the 400-yard freestyle and 200-yard
individual medley, Hatswell taking the 50 and 100 yard freestyle. Westcott
set a Cody pool record of 2:17.5 in the medley.
Cody's John Stewart swam the 100- yard butterfly in 60.8 seconds,
another pool record.
Pete Adams was timed in 4:20.1 for the 400-yard freestyle and
2:01.8 for 200 yards, and Ray Ferguson made the 100-yard butterfly in 59
seconds flat for pool records as Pershing conquered Southeastern, 78-22.
