March 1-1.— Par be it from me to become too bellicose with any part or parcel of our 5,73,?,00a track ami field bugs, but why is it they have established Die mile run as Ihe most popular event on the program? Such Is tlic case, If you hadn't previously been aware of the fact, More fans are interested In the mile run— or its ISOO-melcr equivalent—than In any other event In the book. That, they claim, is the piece <le resistance of every meet. Without being an out-and-out non-conformist I dlflcr with the popular pattern, ami nominate 1 the •140 ns the IhrilliiiBcst event of all. And with an ear turned to Ihe ground I can hear a few folks backing me up. True, you find some of the most highly-publicized names in sport- dom running the mile — Glenn Cunningham. Archie Sun Roman!. Gene Vnnzke. Don Lash, nnd others. Those names are on the tip of your tongue. You probably would have to think a moment or two before you could name three (op- uotch qnarter-milcrs. But let's look nt the mile and 440. Kari' Itun In Lust Lap On an outdoor track, the mile is run around four laps of 400 yards each. What, then, can be so thrilling spectator? There's nothing but Jockeying on the part of the runners In those first three laps. The real rnce coine.s In that flnnl 440 yards. In other words three- qunrters of the ace is merely n buildup for what is to come. The 440 is one single lap around the track— no stalling, little jockeying—just plain, headin' for the I ape. Most track men nnd track conches In life first three laps, for the tell you that lhi> 440 is a tougher nice (o run than the mile. It's probably Ihe most strenuous lint) race there is. being practically a full sprint over a distance. To examine it n little closer let's squint at the time. The world record for the quarter is 4U.C. held by Bill carr. That's just about running four good centuries in io-ftat, which Is pretty fnir time—with six seconds left over for the ridded 40 yards, or distributed throughout the rnce. C:irr Spectacle or 1,1:12 To me, there's more of a thrill in seeing n half dozen or so crack o.uarter-niilers streak it taiievarcl than there is in watching them pound down the 100-yard dash. 'Hie century Is tops In speed, but It's over too soon. They call Gene Vemke a "picture runner." But Venzke, running the mile, never was ns thrilling a sight ns Bill Carr reeling off one of his terrific quarters. Pennsylvania's 193J Olympic champion, whose career was ctit short by an auto accident, was Ihe spectacle of his day. Perhaps the reason for the quarter not being as popular as the mile is the fact that it rarely is included on the big eastern Indoor meet. 1 ;, where Die show Is stolen by | the Wannamaker Mile, the Baxter The ball'you see in midair Is just starling on a 500-foot journey over the center field wall in Griffith Stadium, Washington, D. C., propelled by the mechanical home-run maker, above. It all came about through tests carried out by the U. S. Bureau of Standards lo see which of the major league balls Is the liveliest. Contrary to current belief:, (he National League pellet proved to be Just as lively If not livelier than the American oUier featured mile Archie Williams. Kay Mile, and events. But put Malott. Loren Benkc. Jimmy Cassiii'. Al Pitch, and a couple others in a few 440 Indoor events, nnd the track bugs will clamor for more They're getting around to it by scheduling the "600." but that isn't the 440. As far as rm concerned the 440 is tops.

Texes, will again see (lie German boy in action when lie meets a Greek newcomer in the local arena tonight. Wisbar is scheduled to go against Jimmy Logus in the pre- lilminary bout lonight, but one that may steal the show as far as straight wrestling is concerned. Wisbar. who has performed before local fans on many occasions in the past, is unusually strong, making it very difficult for his opponents to retain a hold on him. While little Is known here of the Greek, he is said to have a good reputation as a matmnn and may be mare than a match for Wisbar. Big Mike Nazerlan will again parade his rough stuff for the entertainment of local ringsiders. meeting Ole Olsen In the finale lo- night. Nazerian's stock in trade seems to consist of gouging, hair pulling and strangling, the sume tactics that made Charles Sltikey such a big drawing card here. Evidently Ihe fans find the illegal antics to their liking in spite of the boas they dish out und pack the arena to the rafters whenever a wrestler of Nazerian's type shows here.
