SPORTS Tremendous Field at Drake Timei Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, April 22,1976 DES MOINES, Iowa (API"In all of our special events, we've got at least two or three international world-class athletes," says Bob Ehrhart, the satisfied director of the 67th Drake Relays. "It's what I consider the greatest field possible around the country." Because this is an Olympic year, Ehrhart believes athletes are making stronger challenges in bids for Olympic berths at Montreal this summer. "The changes I've seen during the pre-Olympic meets is that the athletes seem to be in much better physical condition at this stage of the game," said Ehrhart, four-time Big Ten Conference pole vault champion and Drake track coach. "They've done their homework, their basic body endurance work...they're all primed. "They had very fast times at the Texas Relays, improved on those times at the Kansas Relays, and I'm looking for Ijreat performances here on the third leg of the Midwest relays circuit." The Friday and Saturday track classic in 18,000-seat Drake Stadium features six special events. In the special 100-yard dash, world co-recordholder Ivory Crockett (9 seconds flat) meets Auburn freshman Harvey Glenn. "Glenn ran 9.0 in the 100 last week and the week before ran 9.9 for 100 meters and tied the world record," Ehrhart said. "We've got the fastest human in the U.S. and maybe in the world." Headlining the 400 meter special will be Mississippi State junior Evis Jennings who claimed the 1976 National Collegiate Athletic Association indoor title at 47.4. "He started burning with the advent of the outdoor season," Ehrhart said, "He's had two relay legs of 44.9 and was 45.3 at Kansas to win by a full secondover a great field." Former Michigan standout Kim Rowe, a Big Ten champion and a leading contender for Jamaica's Olympic team, will challenge Jennings. He has a 45.7 best at 440 yards. A top encounter will be in the 800 meter special. Eastern New Mexico's Mike Boit, a Kenyan who is ranked No. 1 in the world at that distance by Track and Field News, meets old foe Rick Wohlhuter (second-ranked) of the University of Chicago Track Club. Wohlhuter set a world mark of 1:44.1 in the half mile last year before Boit erased it. Also in the 800 meter field is collegiate sensation Mark Enyeart (No. 4) of Utah State, reigning-king in the NCAA's 880. Enyeart has defeated Wohlhuter. and Wohlhuter bested Boit at Kansas. Another crowd-pleaser is expected in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles. Ralph Mann (currently fourth-ranked) of the Beverly Hills Striders set the world mark of 48.8 for 440 yards here in 1970.. He'll meet third-rated Jim Bolding of the Pacific Coast Club (PCC), the winner here in 1975. Comedy of Errors as Mets Lose, 7-4 • By The Associated Press The New York Mets were Hit or thrown at so many times during Tuesday night's bean- ball war with the St. Louis • Calculators • Adding Machines • Typewriters STONE'S Hwy. 30 Downtown Carroll Cardinals that they shied away from anything resembling a baseball Wednesday. As a result of two botched pop flies, one butchered ball in left field and a couple of wild pitches they brought back memories of the fledgling 1962 Mets and dropped a 7-4 comedy of errors to the Cards. Elsewhere in the National League, the Atlanta Braves shut out the San Francisco Gi- anfS" 3-0 with Andy Messersmith notching a million-dollar save; the Philadelphia Phillies blanked the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0; the Cincinnati Reds edged the San Diego Padres 5-4; the Houston Astros nipped the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 in 16 innings, and the Montreal Expos led the SMILE AWHILE W^/CASE POWER&EQUIP. 1 CANT UNDERSTAND THAT.

The game will be completed today. The fun in St. Louis began in the Cards' second. Ted Simmons doubled and Mickey Lolich wild pitched him to third. Simmons headed for home when catcher Jerry Grote had trouble following the bouncing ball and scored when Grote's high throw glanced off Lolich's glove at the plate. Lolich then fanned Mike Anderson, but the third strike was another wild pitch and Anderson reached safely. _ That one didn't hurt and, although St. Louis picked up a run in the fourth when Simmons scored from first as left fielder Benny Ayala played b u t c h e r-boy with Reggie Smith's single, the Mets led 4-2 in the sixth, with Lolich contributing a pair of key singles. But Vic Harris opened the St. Louis sixth with a catchable pop fly that fell between first baseman Ed Kranepool and second baseman Felix Millan for a gift double. Lolich retired the next two batters, but Smith, the fourth out, tied the score with a home run. Anderson, not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, was credited with a double when his pop-up fell among Ayala, centerfielder Bruce Boisclair and shortstop Mike Phillips. Ron Fairly singled Anderson home and scored on Don Kessinger's double. The Cardinals, however, didn't take kindly to being upstaged laugh-wise in their own ballpark. So When winning pitcher Harry Rasmussen rapped an apparent double, scoring Kessinger, he was called out for failing to touch first base. Former world record holder Al Feuerbach, an lowan also competing for the PCC, will be challenged by George Woods in the special shot put. Feuerbach is ranked second and Woods tenth. The pole vault contingent will be led by the PCC's Dan Ripley, world standard bearer at 18 feet, 3% inches. Ripley "produced a great indoor record to set himself up for the coming drive to the Olympic Games," Ehrhart said. "The time could be right for the greatest vault in Drake Stadium history." The stadium mark is 17-1'/4. Olympic gold medalist Frank Shorter of Denver, who claimed the 5,000 meter run at Kansas in a record 14:17.2 "is probably as good as anybody in the country if he clicks," Braves 3, Giants 0 Dick Ruthven and Messersmith combined on a six-hit shutout. Ruthven, who singled home the final run in a three-run second inning after Darrel Chaney's two-run single, blanked the Giants for seven innings but was lifted in the eighth after a leadoff single and a walk. 'Messersmith, signed for $1 million as a free agent, got Chris Speier to ground into a double play and Ken Reitz bounced out to end the threat. Phillies 3, Pirates 0 Mike Schmidt belted his seventh home run in the last four games and Tom Underwood and Tug McGraw combined to limit Pittsburgh to seven hits. The Phils got the only run they needed in the first inning on ;Jay Johnstone's double and Greg Luzinski's single. Schmidt homered in the eighth, but was upset because he has struck out 14 times in 37 at-bats. "I'm an easy out between home runs." he said.

"But there are several other- great athletes in that race. Glenn Herold, formerly of Wisconsin, was ranked fifth among Americans last year. And Western Kentucky's Tony Staynings, a native of Bristol, England, is extremely strong." Western Kentucky also offers all-around Englishman Nick Rose, the 1975 relays' most valuable performer. The open 5,000-meter run, sanctioned by the U.S. Track and Field Federation, "should be a terrific dual between Rose, Harold and Shorter," said Ehrhart. Francie Larrieu, America's top female distance runner, is expected to dominate at 1,500 meters. She had the sixth-best 1,500-meter time last year (4:08.5, an American record).
