Page 8 Cheney Free Press Thursday, August 19, 1982 Eagles to kick off seas Olympic swimmer visits By Tom Thrun "I've been where they are. If they can hear what happened to me, then they can say, 'Hey, it can happen to me, too!' " That was the comment made last week by U.S. Olympia medalist Debbie Meyer-Reyes while making a special appearance at the Eas[ern Washington University Swimming Camp. Camp Director/Coordinator Dr. Robert Morgenstern noted that it was the first camp of its kind in the Pacific North- west for competitive swimmers in almost a decade. Meyer-Reyes was the first woman ever to win three gold medals in the Olympics for the United States. taking first place in the 200, 400 and 800 freestyle events. That was in 1968 when she was only 16 years old--back when there still was no collegiate swimming competition for women, said Morgen- stern. "I just saw other people doing it (swimming), so I signed up for summer recreation," said the acclaimed athlete, explaining she did not start to swim until age eight "Motivation" now is an important element in her swimming instruction. Traveling about the country, teaching beginning to college-level swimmers, she works to promote the sport of swimming and the concept of self- discipline. ttelping Morgenstern with most of the swimming instruction during the week- long camp was Jerry White, head coach for the Spokane Swim Team and the Spokane Masters Swim Team. "With Debbie, I think it is super that we can revitalize the Olympics idea," said White. "She exemplifies the drive back at least as a club sport," com- mented Morgenstern. White said he was hopeful of ex- panding the swimming camp to two weeks next year, while also holding it earlier in the summer so that the young swimmers could use their new skills the remainder of the summer with their respective swim clubs. Helping White during the Cheney camp was Marsha Morgan of Whit- to keep the Olympics going, and that helps my kids and myself a lot.

Both Morgenstern and White said they were surprised by the capability of many of the young swimmers at the camp. Both also noted their desires to promote the sport in the Inland Empire, even at a time when the varsity swimming program has been cut at Eastern. "Some of us are going to work to get it E:: worth College, as well as Cheney swimmers Juli Morgenstern and Jeanette Brychell. Dr. Morgenstern noted that Brychell will be competing soon in the U.S. Swimming National Championships (Senior Division) at San Jose, Calif.

Crabb reported a total enroUlment of 33 youth swimmers at the Cheney public Swimming Pool, many of whom placed in the top three finishes in their ge groups after the points they earned uring the summer were added up.

Zornes, wearing 14 stitches in his upper lip and hobbled by a back injury after a racquetball accident last Fri- day, announced that Eastern has picked up five additional recruits, four of them transfers, who are expected to make significant contributions. The additions are offensive tackle David Flutts (Downey, Calif.), running back Roscoe Horne (Minneapolis), line- backer Don Granger (Lynwood, Calif.), defensive lineman Jonathan-Hayes (Omaha} and running back Carlton Henderson (Los Angeles). Flutts, a transfer from Southern California, Horne and Hayes, transfers from Nebraska, will be freshmen in eligibil- ity. Granger transfers from Nevada- Las Vegas. He will be a senior.

Flutts was a Cen- tenary All-American at Warren High where he was an All-San Gabriel League selection and a second team All-California Interscholastic Federa- tion tCIF) choice. The 6'7", 255-pound lineman is expected to be a strong candidate for a starting berth at offensive tackle where the top four performers from the 1981 EWU season all graduated. Horne and Henderson could be blue chip catches, fortifying an already strong running game led by seniors Dean Brady and Mike Andersen. Horne is a graduate of Minneapolis Central High School where he once gained over 300 yards in only seven carries against Washburn High.

Jarvis Spokane County Master Gardner The word MULCH is defined by Webster as "A protective covering (sawdust, compost or paper) used on the ground esp. to reduce evaporation, prevent erosion, control weeds or en- rich the soil." There are other organic materials that can be used, also, such as straw, peat moss, ground bark, manure and leaves. Lawn clippings are also a good mulch material, but only if spread out and thoroughly dried first. However, if you have used weed killer on the lawn, do not use the clippings as mulch or it will also kill your garden plants. Manufactured materials that are also used as mulch include newspapers, polyethylene film and aluminum foil. To cultivate or hoe the ground is helpful in creating a "dust" mulch but the water drops from rain or sprinkler creates a cement effect by packing small particles between larger ones until water can no longer get through. What we are considering, of course, is applying a mulch at this time of the year, after the soil is thoroughly warm. If applied too early it is more of a detriment than a help. The reasons for mulching are as stated above: 1) to reduce evaporation. Just shading bare soil will keep 30 percent of moisture from evaporation, but a good mulch can increase this amount to 70 percent. So you can not only save on water, but keep the soil more evenly moist as well. 2) Prevent erosion. When water drops from rain or sprinkler hit the mulch it breaks them up and allows the water to spread more evenly and with less force. Also keeps dirt from washing up onto the leaves. 3) At Your Ubran,, New adult fiction at your library includes: THE CARE OF TIME by Eric Ambler; a gripping spy thriller, as Ambler does so well.
