RICKETY BATHHOUSE IS POPULAR: Although it gives the appearance of threatening to collapse in the face of a stiff wind, the "leaning" bathhouse at the municipal beach still accommodates hundreds of swimmers each day during the hot summer months.

OLD MAN RIVER HAS QUIT ROLLING: This desolate scene shows how the usually popular municipal bathing beach on the Huron River appears when the river bed is exposed. The Detroit Edison Co. emptied the water to permit repairs on the Argo dam, and the city is taking advantage of the occasion by spending $1,000 to improve the beach. The view here is taken from the east side of the river.

SWIMS A MILE BACK STROKE: Peter Fries (above), six-year-old son of Prof. and Mrs. Charles C. Fries of Overridge Dr., is undoubtedly the world's champion back-stroker for his age. In a time trial this week in the Michigan pool, Peter swam a mile on his back in the excellent time of 38 minutes and 43 seconds. A mile is 70 lengths of the pool and 10 yards. He also swims the free-style, the butterfly breast-stroke and does about six dives. Peter learned to swim and walk at the same time - when he was one year old. Don't think that Matt Mann isn't keeping an eye on the youngster, who is the brother of Capt. Chuck Fries of the 1944 Wolverine swimming team.
