SALEM JUNIOR SNATCHES
Janie Barkman, who dropped
from sight last semester, has made
her postponed academics pay off.
This spunky Pennsylvanian, who
tansferred to Salem after her fresh
man year, dropped out of Salem
for a semester in order to concen
trate on her training for the
Olympic trials in swimming. Janie
participated in the 1968 Olympics
at Mexico City and won a gold
medal for the 400 meter relay and
a bronze medal for the 200 meter
Janie qualified at this year’s trials
and went to Munich with the other
three members of the 400 meter
relay team, where they swam to
first place. Janie is one of the tri
captains and swam the third heat
of the relay, passing her quick
East German opponent. Her speed
allowed Shirley Babashov, the USA
fourth-heat swimmer to maintain
her lead and win the race. During
the USA national anthem Janie
alternated between crying and laugh
ing, but her dimpled smile never
flickered. Obviously her hard work
and sacrifice were demonstrated in
her super-human effort on behalf
of the United States.
Janie will return to Salem Sep
tember 13 and undoubtedly will
have many exciting stories to share
with her classmates.
