Swimming Wonders of Coast
Ttorothy llr-okcr (left) IS-ree«r-old diving wonder, and Mrs.
Terie I>e*eh. who recently established a new Pacific coast record
for the no-yard swim.
Forty seconds does not seem
very fast for a 5 0-yard swim and
there are /irst-class high school
boy swimmers today who can bet
ter that mark, but there i« not a
woman swimmer the length of the
Pacific coast except Mrs. Terie
Desrh who is capable of better
time. Mrs. Desch now holds both
the 50 and 100-yard coast records
for women.
The woman's world's record of
>1 seconds for SO yards is held by
Fanny Durack. the Australian
maid who went to Stockholm and
nssd-p nearly a clean sweep of
the girls' swimming races at the
Olympiad.
Mrs. Desch swims with her
shoulders high out of the water,
quite the opposite idea to the
methods adopted by the fast crawl
stroke swimmers. She uses the
crawl, neverth and travels j
through the water with an even, |
steady stroke that has plenty of
power in the arm action, and the
leg thrash from tb« knee is a
powerful one.
Many and plowing are the trib
utes heard on the Pacific coast for
the beautiful exhibitions of fancy

overlooking the fact that two
