Olympic Athletes Race at World-Beating Speed in Winter Contests. NEW YORK, UP)--The Olympic games in Berlin are five months away but the United States already can take heart in the way its athletes are performing on the boards this winter. Seven world's records have fallen since the indoor season got under way in Madison Square garden Feb 1. With the exception of a new mark for the one mile walk all have been hung up by American candidates for the Olympic team. The greatest individual achievements have been turned in by Eddie O'Brien, the flying Syracuse star. O'Brien, undefeated this year and improving with each race, lowered the listed mark for 500 yards to 57.8 seconds in the New York A C. games and then sent the record for 600 meters tumbling to 1:21 in winning the national championship Saturday. Both were records of long standing. Gene Venzke, the Pennsylvania stylist, joined the record smashing parade when he defeated Glenn Cunningham and won the national 1,500 meter crown in 3:49.9. The old mark of 3:50.5 was made by Cunningham in winning the same event last year Forest City High Wins Close Match With Burt FOREST CITY--Forest City high school's wrestlers won a close meet from Burt, the contest going to the final match before Forest City earned a 19^ to 18% victory.
