PAGE SIX Abilily of Field Indicates New Recoixl In Big • Event By JIMMY DONAIHJI: >'RA Srrvlce Spoils Writer The Olympic 1500-metCT run appears lo be TUB race' of tlic ancient Grecian classic. Not only lias 11 nn tntirnatloniil atmosphere sup- -plled by entries from Enlaml, the United Slates, Italy, Germany, mil .less favored countries, hut ths cta'< of ivie coinpslltors threatens lo lower the outdoor record of 3:48.8. !St< 'by Princeton's H"l jvmthron. What, a field there'll bel • There's Lulgl Beccah, of Italy, who won In Las Angeles In 1932 setting a .record -of 3:51.2; Bon- throri; Glenn Cunningham, the Yankee 'Holder of the mile record of 4:07; dene Vcnzkc, the rejuvenated Pcun mllcr, who holds tlis woilil Indoor 1500-meter mark of 3:199; mid Jack I/>velock, .Hie! New ' Zcalfindcr running for Cam-I bridge University, who held the mile record before Cunningham broke it. It's little wonder tttat experts are .looking tor the standard to falll With the Yankee big three. Cunningham, nonthron, and ycmke, .ill shape, the United Slates presents its strongest front In this event' since 1908, w'iien Mel Sheppard gtive America its last 1500- meter victory In London. Second Flight Strong And that trio had belter be in shape. Dogging their heels every inch of the way, In the final trials at Randalls island Stadium, Ne«' York, July 10-U, will l>c I'flrec or four dark' horses who have good chances, of ousting the .favorites from the team. The second flight is made up of Joe Mangnn, , ex-Cornell ace; Archie San Homanl of KnnsflS Slate Teachers, national collegiate mile champion In 1835-36, \vho recently lias been overlooked by most of the-experts; and Glenn Dawson, of Tiilsa. Cunningham's pace judgment was very faulty in the Indoor campaigns last winter, and lor that reason he looked at the spikes of Vcnzke and Mangan repeatedly ivmt, and the fact that he wasn't in. the best of condition, gave some idea that three or, four seasons of campaigning had caused Win lo slip. . . ..' However, you have It direct from Larson Robertson, Olympic track coach, that Glenn ..still Is, capable of running a faster quarter and half In a mile nice t'naii any other speedster In the country; and that improvement In his pace Judgment and condition will bring him into the Olympic trials as the fellow to beat at 1500, meters. Matty Gels, the Princeton coach, warns tliat Eonthron is polnthis for an Olympic berth.. This mentor also states that Bonny won't break- records unless matched against, ul fast pacemaker. I Since Venzke, Cunningham, and! Lovelock all arc capable of setting I a fine example for a hanger-on.' Bill may pick up isls heels jusl n bit faster and crack his own record at t:he distance. Dark Horse Has Chance Tre little fellow, San Romani has what It takes to become a winning dark hotte. Just how good he Is can be gauged by comparing him with Don Lash, the Hoosier spccdslcr who has given up mile competition in favor of distance, events after breaking paavo Nur- tnl's tv.-o-raiie record In the recent Princeton Invitational. Jn nojjianl's intercollegiate races tills year, he faced Lnsh every time, and defeated tho Bloominglolt boy. In Ihe distance medley of the Kan sas relays, Archie and Don ran shoulder to shoulder until the last 300 yards, when the former started a sensational sprint and won. in the U'annamnker mile In the Garden, Archie finished fourth, ahead of Lash nnd Norman Bright, In the recent. N. C. A. A, meet JIB again defeated Lash. Last year 'nls best lime at the 1500-mclci distance was 3:51.3 but his coach, Fran Welch, says he's nn even bet to do belter Ihan 3:50 this season, The Soutlirrn Atlanta Nashville ... Llltle Rock .
