TALLAHASSEE, Florida, October 23. THE Florida State men's and women's swimming and diving teams returned to the Morcom Aquatics Center this afternoon to take in-city rival FAMU.

The Seminoles easily handled the small Rattler squad as the men won 79 to 58 and the women by a score of 76 to 47.

On the men's side Florida State's swimmers and divers earned the fast times and highest scores in every event.
