Cody Awaits Reply.
Jack Cody is waiting to get a final
answer from the Detroit Athletic as
sociation regarding that institution
paying part of the expenses of a full
women's diving team from Multnomah
club to compete in the national diving
meet in Detroit on March 29. A tele
gram is expected any day now.
In case the Detroit Athletic club does
not see fit to help bringing a complete
team of women from M. A. A. C, Thel
tna Payne, present holder of the nation
al Indoor title, may be the only one to
make the trip, accompanied by Jack
Cody. Cody has developed a wonder
ful women's diving team at Multnomah
club, a team that is not surpassed by
any in the country and he expects great
things from his proteges this year.
