One of our youngest swim­mers, Co­hen’s drive to im­prove can’t be un­der­es­ti­mated. He takes on new drills and chal­lenges with a smile. He gives his all at every prac­tice and it shows in the im­prove­ments in his strokes and speed. Way to go, Co­hen!

Coaches’ Comments:

Brian Jones’ Sept. 15 call for a new strat­egy to stop high­way car­nage prompts me to re­ply that there al­ready ex­ists a good one, cer­tainly much bet­ter than his proposed af­ter-the-fact ad­vi­sories which would amount to mere hand-wring­ing and scold­ing the dead.

A cou­ple of years ago, when my brother-in-law was tak­ing us to the air­port in north­ern Eng­land, he felt com­pelled to ex­plain why he was only go­ing 55 miles per hour. It was 3:30 in the morn­ing, the roads were bare, the weather fine and there was al­most no traf­fic. But, said he, there were radar guns and cam­eras set up in ran­dom places. If you went too fast you got a ticket in the mail (or over there, the post). Why don’t we too catch all the speed­ers, all the time, in all con­di­tions, with no ex­tra work for the po­lice?
