Three Students Take Cold Plunge in Back Waters At The Old College Grounds

The Register-Leader, December 2, 1921

Ted Williams, Harold Brown and Eldon Schafer, all students in Marietta College, took a cold bath in the back waters on the old college grounds, corner of Butler and Fourth street Thursday afternoon.  It was not an accident.

The three students donned their bathing suits and took a plunge into the chilly water, Williams taking a long swim.  None of the men stayed in the water very long, however.  On several occasions students have taken advantage of the flood waters in the college field, but it is doubtful ever before in December.
