PAGE SIX BLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Cunningham Indicated No Letdown at New Orleans; Romani Nearest Rival BY JERRY BRONT»F1P.I,D NBA Service Sporis Writer NKW YORK, Jan. 6.—As Die nation's track and field stars launch themselves into another indoor season, It becomes apparent, that the loudest noise of all will be made by the pounding reel of Glenn Cunningham and Archie Sam no- mani, There ar c those who claim that • the shorter, quicker-striding San '• Romani Is destined to become "the new king of -American mllers. Cunningham has gone along year nfter year turning in super-performances in tils specialty, and it would seem that it merely is n matter of lime before his younger rival picks up where lie leaves off. The other afternoon in the Sugar Bowl of New Orleans, there was nothing to Indicate that tills is the year for th e Cunningham fadcout. however. Beaten by San Roman! a year ago on the same cinders, Cunningham started the new ycr.r right by re"elline- not only his foremost rival, but Don Lash and Charley Fenske as well. His 4:13,2 lowered the southern record by elghl-leniljs of a second. . Cunningham, too, was the only 1936 champion lo successfully defend his crown In the 1937 National A. A. U. meet. The world indoor and outdoor marks are 4:08.4 and 4:00.0. respectively, and it is the hope of both San Romani and Lash—the latter supreme at two miles—that some flue day they will carve out .a 4:05 mile. It's more Ihnn a hope with San Romani. It's a burning nmbilion. Ramans' Careers Strangely Parallel Although the barrcl-clicsteel Cunningham breezed home In front of San Romani in Ihc Sugar Bowl mile, they'll be closer than a couple of eyelashes, once the athletes oct Into their fully-conditioned swing. The spectacular careers of Cunningham and san Romani nrc strangely parallel. Both are unlives of Kansas and now compete under the banner of the New York Curb . Exchange. Both suffered such severe leg injuries in childhood that it was feared they would not walk again. Little Ran Romani patterned himself after his illustrious neighbor. The indoor season starts In FI<vt- bush, Jan. 8. with the Brooklyn Columbus Council K. of C. meet, but not until next month will the bigger and star-studded gathcr- " ings get under way. : " Cunningham ' and San Romani will not collide In the Brooklyn affair, the former once more preferring (a open on the boards at 800 meters.
