[F«g« CZ-iNDEfENDENT LtoiuVc Jporti Uitf · L~f~ L.D. Games Gone, Not Forgotten Well, the first annual Long Beach Games wasn't exactly a resounding success, but it did unloose a few shots heard 'round the world. Not being a track bug in the mold of John Dixon, Bob Schmidt. Rich Roberts and Kea Piveraetz, among others, this correspondent nevertheless recognized a few problems with our baptismal indoor event. On the debit side of the ledger, the following difficulties were noted In Long Beach Anna Tuesday eight: .. -. 1. The world's fastest human. Bob Hayes, got whipped In the (0-yard dash--but only because the chap who won got 'a three-yard head start. I know they sling poundage on" horses to ejualire a race, but this is the first time ·.-realized they gave a human runner a head start. (I think 'J-!Ji*Hayes was equally surprised.) ·IX-12. The shotput ring was as tilted as a three-legged ; -Jpirjball machine. Dallas Locg and Parry O'Brien must have .·r^wJght they were in the slalom at Innsbruck, the way "*» they slid downhill after every toss of the iron ban. '. '3. Hayes Jones, who boasts an incredible streak of ,53^ straight high hurdle triumphs, almost didn't get No. '...' 53, In Long Beach. As Hayes was warming up for his annual duel with Dee Andrew, an iron ban bounced from -. -the _shotput circle and came at the unsuspecting Jones ; - ykt a boulder down a mountainside. Somebody shouted J .···Jjeronimo'* and Jones soared higher than Ron Morris in ;. .£th pole vault event '' .**-T"4. The pole vault standard was something to behold, ' '*",$?· Il went on 'y 16-feet into the air and there was a long J.-'pau*' that didn't refresh as officials scurried about for , · some device to raise the bar. They had to settle for soft · 1 -Idrihk cases, or something, to elevate the base FTVE inches. ,· .TJwC only competitor remaining who had cleared IS feet »^»rwas Mel Hein Jr, so the poor kid couldn't be censured I'»^ f$» Tailing to make those five big. added inches after a "-*· '.$* hour's coolingoff period. £·; " 5, An official really goofed In the Junior college mile -~. relay. The leadoff men were forced to run an entire extra' *·* lap, because some guy with AAU credentials couldn't T*I amnt. The worn-out kids staggered that extra lap in ^-.* world record time (in reverse). Long Beach City College's ' ·! Richard Williams went that extra lap like he was training ··I* for the one-mile walk. 1 ·! '.;IA few ether things went wrong . . . trophies were · *· ^»»rded in haphazard fashion, some hours after an event ;-!· was* concluded... the crowd was below expectations (but · *· the Tuesday eight date forced upon the sponsors cer- ;** tainly isn't conducive to an overflow turnout).... The .""· Century Cub's Gerry Georgeson presented the belated ;.·; 60-yard dash awards and was introduced as President V. Steve Krai, who was some miles away celebrating his ·»;· last bachelor party ... etc. : * * * .-.I MOST LMPORTAYT, however, is that sponsor Charles .*-- N. Cake, meet director Bill Gill and coordinator Mai Whit- ,-·; field aren't discouraged. .*.- This was'the first lime we ever tried such a meet y* la -Long Beach," commented Cake. Til be back.
