Leit: Capl. Franz Hoskins hands out the towels from the cage in the Huskies ' new pool. Below: Mentor Jack Torney answers the phone in the control room while Vic Cur ran does a little extra studying. The pool was constructed with funds gained from Washington ' s share in the Rose Bowl game on Jan. 1, 1937, augmented by State and Federal grants, and is located at the east end of the athletic pavilion. Seventy-five feet long, and 42 feet wide, the pool has six seven-foot lanes for use in champion- ship competition. It holds 186,000 gallons of water, which is completely changed and purified every six hours. The seating capacity is between 1,000 and 1,200 persons, and indirect lighting is used through- out. The shallow end is four feet deep, while the deep end measures 12 feet. Official dedication took place March 24, when the Huskies swept through all opposition to take the Northern Division swimming title. Some of the outstanding competitors in the country competed in the Far Western AAU championship held there this spring. Two Huskies set to plunge into the pool from beneath the diving board at the north end. George Personette receives instruction in the use of the new automatic pacer from Coach Torney. The pacer was invented by Bill Bond of WSC and was invaluable to the championship Husky team this year. 1 1
