Record Broken by 114 Feet in
Testing Pressure-Resist*
ing Mixture.
By the Associated Press.
2.—Max E. Nohl, 27-year-old amateur
diver, descended 420 feet to the floor
of Lake Michigan yesterday to reach
the greatest depth in water ever
attained by a man in a diving suit.
After nearly three hours in the
icy dipths, Nohl was hauled back
to the deck of the Coast Guard, cut
ter Antietam. Ship-to-shore short
wave radio communication announced
his condition as good, it was reported
by the Coast Guard's chief radio
operator, Herbert Wren, at Chicago.
The cutter brought Nohl back to
Milwaukee, his home.
The depth of 420 feet ^reached by
Nohl exceeded by 114 feet the United
States Navy diving record of 306
feet set by Prank Crillery on the
bottom of Pearl Harbor, Honolulu,
in 1915.
Nohl’s avowed purpose in making
yesterday’s descent was twofold. It
was a test of a special mixture of
oxygen and helium, supplied from a
tank strapped to his back, which Nohl
and Capt. John Craig, a commercial
diver, said enabled a diver to reaiat
the pressure of water at greater depths
and which, they said, reduced the
danger of “bends."
The plunge also was practice for
Nohl’s intended descent to the sunken
liner Lusitania, which lies in 112 feet
of water off the Irish coast.
