PAGE SIX Ability of Field New Record Event Indicates lu Big By JIMMY DONAHUE XEA Service Spoils Writer The Olympic 1500-meter run appears to Us THE race' of Die a:i• clsnt Grecian classic. Not only has It an international atmosphere sup•plied by entries from .Enlaml, the United States, Italy, Germany, ami .less favored countries, hut tin cla** of We competitors threatens to •lover the outdoor record of 3^8.8. 'lit by Princeton's B" 1 Jiiiithron. ' What a field there'll lie! • There's mlgl Beccah, of Italy, ;who won In Los Angeles in 1032 setting a record -of 3:51.2; Don- throri; Glenn Cunningham, the] Yankee 'holder of the mile reconl 'at 4:0.7; Gene Veirete, the rejtivc- \mled- peim mllcr, who holds Ilia world Indoor 1600-meter mark of 3:49.9; and Jack Lovelock, the j New Zealandcr running for Cam-1 bridge University, who held the mile record before Cunningham broke it. It's little wonder t'hnt experts nre looking for .the standard to fall! . With the Yankee big three, Oun- nlngham, Bonthron, ami Venzke, .In shape, the United States pre- ssnts Its strongest front in this event- since 1908, when Mel Shcp- pard gave America Us last 1500- meter victory In London. Second Flight Strong And that trio liiid better be In shape. Dogging their heels every Inch of the \vay, in the flnul trials at Randalls Island. Stadium, New York, July 10-11. will be tviree or four dark horses who have good chances of enisling the .favorites from the learn. The second flight is made up of Joe Mangan, . ex-Cornell ace; Archie San Romnni of Kansas State Tenders, imtlonal collegiate nilic champion In 1935-36, who recently has been overlooked by most of the experts; and Glenn Dawson, of Tulsa. Cunningham's pace judgment was very faulty In the Indoor campaigns last winter, and for that reason he looked at the spikes ol Venzke and Mangan repeatedly .Tnat. and the fact that he wasn't in. the test of condition, gave some Idea that three or four seasons of campaigning had caused him to slip However, yoii have It direct, from Lawson Robertson, Olympic track coach, that oieiin..£tUl Is, capable of running a faster quarter and half In n mile yacc t'flan any other speedster in the country; and that Improvement In his pace judgment and condition will bring him inlo the Olympic trials as Ihe fellow to beat at 1500. meters. Malty Gels, the Princeton coach, warns" tliat Eonthron is pointing for an Olympic berth. This mentor also states that Bonny won't brenk' records unless matched against u fast pacemaker. Since Venzke, Cunningham, and Lovelock all arc capable of setting a fine example for a hanger-on. Bill may pick up his heels Just a bit faster and crack liis own record at file distance. Dark Horse Has Chance The little fellow, snn Romanl lias what it takes to become a winning dark horSc. Just how good lie is can be ganged by comparing him with Don Lash, the Hoosicr sixedster who has given up mile Kimpatltion in favor of distance events after breaking Paavo Nur- ml's two-mile record !n the recent Princeton Invitation*). In Rbmanl's Intercollegiate race- tills year, he faced Lush every time, and defeated the Bloolningtoh boy. In the distance medley of the Kansas relays, Archie and Don rah shoulder to shoulder until the last 300 yards, when the termer .slnrl«! a sensational sprint and won. in Trie Wniinnmnker mile In the'Gar- den, Archie finished fourth, ahead of Lisli niui Norman L'jight. In the recent N, C. A. A. meet ho again defeated Ijjsh. Last year 'nls best lime al Die 1500-meter distance was 3:51.3, but his coach, Fran Welch, says he's an even bet. to do better than 3:50 this .season.
