I just came across an old (like Science News 3/22/80) article I'd 
kept concerning this. It refers to an article in the 3/14/80 Science.

It covers W. P. Coombs investigation of of some odd tracks that he
interpreted as being made by a carnivorous dinosaur.

There is some more discussion of swimming dinosaurs in Martin 
Lockley's "Tracking Dinosaurs" (I don't recall this being mentioned
in this thread, tho I may have missed it).
