Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 41: March, 1941
D the national record was set with the sportsmanlike co, operation of St. George's coach and swimmers. The 400' yard relay is not customary in schoolboy competition, but the Academy was willing to schedule it, gave the best opposition, and placed it first in the meet. Swimming in the 20'yard pool, the Cub quartet struck 6 seconds from the mark previously held by Stanford. In posting the time of 3 42, the four men were clocked as follows: Tim Joyner 5 Murray Berns 5 5 2, Joe Capouch 2, and Phil Carson 5 St. George's, one of the best prep school aggregations in New England, went down to defeat only 35531.
Worcester Academy, unbeaten since February, 1939, had taken 27 straight meets when the Freshmen journeyed to its pool last month and won Carson set a pool record of 5 in the 100, shaving a tenth off the mark set by Wally Hedquist, Worcester coach and former Brown swimmer. The Cubs took all firsts except the freestyle relay. Moses Brown was set back 4224 in a program marked by an attempt to break the Brown record for the 150'yard medley relay. It failed by 4/ 10th of a second.
