The world's endurance swim

rested tonight upon the shoulders
of a gritty mother of 36 years.
Mrs.", Lee Fourrler of Colton, who
today, at 2:66 p. m., emerged
from the outdoor plunge here
after a gruelling paddle of 5$

mother of two boys as she relaxed
tonight after her long but success
ful battle to break the record of
64 hours and 28 minutes set in
New York recently by Mrs. Myrtle
Huddleston of Mattoon. I1L Her

Mrs. Fourrler was ableAo walk
to her dressing room from the
plunge, and her mental faculties
were almost as alert as they were

through the door of her dressing
room she collapsed, but was quick

Three physicians said her condi

arms and were badly water
logged. When the 36-year-old swimmer
started on her endurance swim at

she gave up.

ered a surprising feat for an en
durance swim of such length.
Flouting hardships and sleepless
ness, she had to call upon drawn
muscles to withstand the gruelling
punishment that is forced upon
one who swims hour after hour
over the monotonous route of one
end of the plunge to the other,
she took food regularly at about
two hour intervals', chicken broth.
