Only Bob Aaron of diving coach Bernie Kelley's three prodigees qualified for the high board finals in the Eastern Intercollegiate meet at New Haven with 138 points, as Pete Stenens and Tom Drohan were displaced in yesterday's lowboard preliminaries.
Today, however, the Crimson will emerge from its Hotel Taft billets enmasse in the teeth of the first seeded Bulldogs. Captain John Watkins will be taking the gun in the 100 sprint, Jerry Gorman, Forbes Norris, and Larry Miner in the quarter mile, and Chuck Hoelzer in the 200-yard butterfly.
The other New England qualifier in the dive was Dartmouth's Ed Leede, who placed high in the standings with 152 points. According to expectations the Blue hosts were setting the pace.
