Gov. William Donald Schaefer waded last night in the dolphin pool at the National Aquarium, 13 years after his famous 1981 dip in the facility's seal pool.The occasion was a party for Frank A. Gunther Jr., who stepped down May 1 as chairman of the aquarium after two lengthy stints. Mr. Gunther swam in the seal pool with Mr. Schaefer -- then mayor of Baltimore -- in the summer of 1981 to make amends for its opening a month later than scheduled.Mr. Schaefer made his splash this time in the dolphin tank at the Marine Mammal Pavilion on Pier 4. Wearing a black baseball cap, blue aquarium staff shirt and hip-high galoshes, he stood in the shallow end of the pool and signaled to one of the dolphins, which surprised him by leaping out of the water.
