To the Alumni, Patrcnr and
Friends of the University:

The annual Homecoming at the University of
Florida has been fixed for Octoter 26th, at which the Gators
will entertain the Maryland Old Liners on the football
gridiron.

While the football game will be the major
feature, other events hardly less interesting are being
planned this year. Between halves a game in the style and
costume of the nineties will be staged. A swimming meet, in
which Katherine Rawls and other Olympic champions will
participate, has been definitely arranged. The preparations
which are being made under the auspices of the Blue Key
Society and those cooperating with them justify more than the
usual interest which those occasions have awakened in the
past.

I am urging every alumnus and every friend
of the University to avail themselves of this Homecoming
Extraordinary A number of distinguished guests will be
with us and it is confidently expected that there will be
a record-breaking attendance. We hope you will come and
enjoy each and every feature which has been planned for
your entertainment.



Cordially yours,




President.

In the 440-meter event he finished third behind Jack Medica. Ralph
was a member of the American swimming team that invaded Japan last
summer.

172.56 points.

Elbert Root: Was third in the diving competition with 146.17 points.

Katherine Rawls: At 10 years of age won the State A.A.U. diving and breast
stroke championships, and at 12 took second place in the national
fancy diving contest. She was world's champion in the medley swim
at 14, and since then has won national titles in every style of swim-
ming except back stroke and every classs of diving except tower. In
1934 she won the New York News' Women's Swimming Decathlon at Jones

She did not enter the decathlon this year. Incidentally, Katie won
first place in all ten of the events.

In the National A.A.U. swimming championships in July, Katherine won
first place in the 220-meter breast stroke, second in the 100-meter
free style, and third in the 880-meter free style.

weighed 73 pounds. She became 12 on August 22. Her first elective
dive in the championship was the two and a half forward somersault,
which Mrs. Hill a few hours before had announced was impossible for
a woman to execute. Mary went through the dive with perfect form. She
is the youngest National A.A.U. champion in history.

Ruth Hoerger: Age 13, took second honors in platform diving in the same
A.A.U. Meet.

The Hoerger sisters and Rawls sisters were members of the Miami Beach
