Arkau- !!)• JERRY BKONDF1F.LD NEA Srcvice Sports Writer NEW YORK.—Word is being passed by track-wise experts tlinl space aboard the Toklo-bound Olympic packet in 1940 is being reserved for young Leslie Mac- Mitcliell. currently running the mile for New York's Washington high school. ... MacMilcheU nokls the world's scholastic indoor imird of 4':23.5 for. the .mile, whfeji Is better lime than thai turned !:• by n lot of collegiate inilers. He is only IS jiau. old, bui i.< unusually clevelo;>«l lor n bov of It's age. He has ?. deep chest and powerful let's. His stamina is amazing, but he lops evcrytliiri? off .with nn e'vcn more brilliant sprint. , Glenn Cunnliifihcin says that MacMltchcll might easily become tlic greatest miler in the counl'/y by 1940. Glenn, himself, ran r. 4:21 mile outdoors when in hMi school. MacMitchel! works out daily With the New York University team under the watchful eye ol Bull von Elllng, Hie Violet coach, who shares the same opinion as Cunningham. "MacMilchell Is one of the greatest mite prospects I've ever seen," asserts Von Elling. "He's being handled wisely and should not be burned out before he reaches his full growth." The youngster will enter N. Y. U. when he finishes his scholastic career. Another high school youth who seems destined for success Is u\s Steers of Palo Alto, Calif., whose leap of G feet 5 3-4 indies was good enough to capture this event at the Prout Memorial Games in Boston. He out-jumped no less a personage than the world rcco-<] holder himself, Mel Walker of Ohio State. * » » Dixie Nominates Center In the race for All-America cage honors they've overlooked Bol Spessard of Washington and LCC When great centers are discussed (he names of Art stocfen of Stanford and Mike Bloom of Temple usually are, mentioned, but hi- record speaks for the pivot mar from 'Dixie. Because Spessard has been seen in action only In the south for th» most part, he hasn't been receiving the national recognition du him. In 59 games. Spc.ssard talllcu 929 points, for an average of 16 He accounted for 25 points ojalns North Carolina, one of the Strong est arrays south of the Mason Dixon line. He was placed on the All Southern Conference team tw years In a row and Is headed fo his. third trip. Better than ever this trip, Spes sard not only leads the General in scoring but he Is their mos valuable asset on defense. The south claims he's as sound ins tremendous salaries for years. Tlie Rajah even is discredited with ninny of those whose company lie chose—the bookies. Indeed, I hear that he has since turned bookie himself—In Chicago.
