Description

Photo caption: "Washington D.C...The lady of the pictures is a seventeen-year-old Miss of Chicago, and Northwestern University, Miss Claudia Eckert, and she is demonstrating her natitorial accomplishment in the pool of the Showham Hotel here. Claudia has come from her midwest home, with her father, George Eckert, one-time swimming and baseball celebrity, to compete in the National Indoor Diving Championship Tournament in this pool, on March 24. For the past four years Claudia has been a top-notch natator. In each of the four years she has won the Central States A.A.U. Diving Championship, and she has won a modicum of renown too in crawl and breast stroke events. In 1932 she placed fifth in the Olympic diving tryouts. This year she hopes to carry the crown, as National Diving Queen, back to Chicago with her."
