ST LOUIS POST-DISPATCH SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 4, 1556 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH Garden Crowd Gives Santee Ovation as He Wins in Slow Time 2E A.A.U. Bar Scare? All But 2 Men From Field NEW YORK. March S (UP) Vts Santee, an amateur for a night, raced through a crescendo of cheers tonight, in what jnay have been his last race to win the Columhian mile in 413.8. Barred for professionalism by the A.A.U. and running on the strength of a state supreme court Injunction, Santee finished three-quarters of a lap ahead of the only two men who dared to defy the amateur powers and run against him. They were Ed Kirk, former Georgetown star now In the Air Force, and Ed Shea, another serviceman. Five others had dropped out of the Columbian Mile when, after the A.A.U. failed to get an injunction against Santee' appearance in tonight's K. of C. games at Madison Square Car-den, they were threatened with "possible loss of Olympic eligibility. Santee's appearance highlighted the program and the crowd of 12.500 cheered his every step as he ran away from his two rivals and took permanent possession of the Cardinal Spellman trophy on the strength of a 4:10.4 victory last year. The Kansan ran the first .quarter in 59.2 but obviously was out of condition as he made his first start in some five ..weeks. He had withdrawn from the recent series of indoor meets pending an A.A.U. hearing and was barred as a professional Feb. 19 on grounds that he accepted excessive expenses. He ran the half in 2:02.1 and then tailed off to a 3:08.4 three-quarters. High Pole Vaulter. The crowd also cheeerd Don Bragg of Villanova as he became the second highest pole vaulter in history, moving past Rev. Bob Richards with a 15-foot, 5V-inch vault, which was .314 inches below Cornelius Warmerdam's all-time record. But the big cheers were for Santee, who obtained a state supreme injunction this week against his suspension pending a March 9 hearing. The A.A.U. made an unsuccessful attempt today to upset this injunction ' and prevent him from running. C When Pincus Sober, the K. 'of C. announcer, and chairman ',of the A.A.U. committee which gatnerea me cnarge s '. Santee, announced that the five 'and would compete in a spe rial mile race." there was a storm of boos. Then when Santee's name was announced for. the Columbian Mile tne cheers began and continued as he raced to victory. "I was terribly disappointed by my showing," Santee said after the race. "But 1 do feel good and 1 plan to run in Milwaukee next week." However, Santee's plans may be upset before then by the injunction hearing next Friday. There were constant boos of criticism as the five who had withdrawn from the Columbian Mile competed in the "Special Mile Run" in which Ron De-lany, the Irishman from Villa-nova, won by 20 yards in 4:11.8, which was two seconds faster than Santee's time. George King of N.V.U. was second and Jim Bailey, an Australian student at the University of Oregon, third. Jim Doulln of Manhattan set the early pace and the criticism was thunderous over the slow 66.9 opening quarter and 2:12.1 half. Delany took over with three laps to go and won by an easy 20 yards. Equals World Record. George Sydnor of Villanova scored a photo-finish victory over Dave Sime of Duke to win the 60-yard dash in 6.1 seconds which equaled the world indoor record. Lt. Rod Richard of the Army was third. Charlie Pratt, an Army private and former Manhattan inter-collegiate champion, nosed out veteran Harrison Dillard, two-time Olympic champion from Cleveland, to win the 80-yard high hurdles in 7.2 seconds ' which equaled the meet record. Lou Knight of, Manhattan was third. Ashenfelter Winner. Horace Ashenfelter, the Olympic steeplechase champion, scored his sixth consecutive victory in the K. of C. two-mile run but the cheers were for Jim Beatty of the University of North Carolina, who finished just a stride behind him. Bob Sbarra of Manhattan was third as Ashenfelter was clocked in . 9 minutes, 5.3 seconds. St. Joseph's of Philadelphia, represented by Jim McAlpln, Bob Morgan, Joe McMannus and Frank McLaughlin, won a one-mile relay in 3 minutes, 24.5 seconds with Williams second and Lafayette third. Villanova equalled the fastest mile relay clocking of the indoor season by winning easily over Pitt and Morgan State in that order in 3 minutes, 19.6 seconds. The team included Gene Malliff, Roland Simpson, Al Peterson and Charlie Jenkins, the 600-yard winner. Mrs. Muckler's Horse Wins at Hot Springs HOT SPRINGS, Ark, March 3 (UP) An all-time record crowd of 14,381 persons watched Mrs. Elizabeth Muckler's Johns Chic win the $3000 Hot Springs Handicap today by three lengths on a lightning fast track.
