umask doesn't work - even in command mode without scripts

I cannot get umask to work in my csh. For instance:

umask 002
touch file1
ls -l file1
-rw-rw-r-- file1

what's up?

There must be something taking precedence. What?  I would like to know all of the things that affect the effectivity of a umask.  It is not my .cshrc.  In there I also set the umask to 002.

Help!

PS --- the parent directory has full permissions, for example:

drwxrwxrwx     user1   group1    mydirectory

and I am logged in as user1.

Could file1 have existed before the touch?

You would think that the newly created - touched file would have permissions dictated by the 002 mask i.e. -rwxrwxr-x  ?????

Thanks
