Jack Falls Leads Pirates To 7th Straight Win, 4-2 RECORD PUSHER— Chris Chataway, for the third time Saturdoy, finished finished second to a world record run, coming in behind behind Fred Green's record- breaking three-mile run. Chataway finished second to Roger Bannister in his 3:59.4 mile run and behind behind John Landy in his 3:58.0 mile gallop. (UP Telephoto). Nips Mark sunners to new world distance records records this year. He paced Bannister Bannister in his 3:59.4 mile at Oxford University, May 6, and did the same for Landy’s 3:58.0 mile at Turku, Finland, June 21. Greene, who made several jumps as a combat parachute trooper during during World War II and has been running in British meets for the past seven years, said he was surprised surprised at his feat. “When the bell sounded for the last lap, I waved on Chataway, believing believing that he had the better finishing finishing speed,” Green said after the race. “But I could see that Chris would not do it, so I raced back in the lead and got home by inches.” Green shaved two-tenths of a second off Haegg’s listed world standard of 13:32.4, set in Sweden on Sept. 20, 1942.

When the bell sounded announcing announcing the final lap, Green went to the front, but 300 yards from the finish line, barrel-chested Chata­ way bolted ahead by six yards. Green then put on a terrific finishing finishing kick and inched his way into the lead as the pair rounded the final turn for home. Once again, untiring Chataway challenged and this was the burst that forced Green to a new world record. Green forced a final sprint from his wearying legs and barely withstood Chataway’s bid as he burst the tape.
