Jesse Owens won the 200-metre sprint here today to become an Olympic triple champion.

This time, however, was disallowed as a world record because there was a favoring wind. The black flash won the broad jump championship yesterday with a leap of 20 feet 5 21-64 inches, smashing to smithereens the for mer standard ot zo ieet 4 21-bi inches made by Edward Hanim in ire. Previously "Olympic triples" have been achieved five times. Ray Ewry, of New York, captured the standing high jump, standing broad jump, and standing hop. step and jump in the 1900 and 1904 games.

Robinson's 5iazing speed permitted him to ,'qual the record time Jesse Owens .wice made in Tuesday's first heats. Owens, already crowned 1 0-netre and broad jump champion. went into the 200-metre finals by winning his semi-final, but his time of 21.3 was his slowest of the games.

Humber was fifth while McPhee. who appeared to be the Dominion's min sprint hope before the games, finished a fading sixth and last. Robinson led the 21-year-old Orr by two metres at the finish. Win-land Van Beveren of Holland, was third, in the last qualifying place, while the American star, Bob Packard, ran fourth and out. Robinson, on the pole, started well and had command of the race leaving the turn into the stretch tor the final 60 metres. The negro pulled away in the last few strides after orr cnanengea.

The surprise of the competition was the failure of Sweden's Harald Andersson, former world record holder, to qualify. The Swede, who threw the disc 171 feet H'a inches two years ago, surpassing the former universal standard, was handicapped by a bad hand. . --Anotner who failed to qualify was Bernard Predergast, Jamaica's lone entry, whose participation raised the nations competing in the 11th Olympic to fifty-one.

Promptly at 1 :?.0 p.m. 33 walkers EXPECT RECORD IN ATTENDANCE FOR OLYMPIAD Probably 3,000,000 Persons Will See Games IMPRESSIVE By LOUIS P. LOCHNER (Associated Press Foreign Staff) BERLIN, Aug. 5. ( A.P.) All Olympic attendance records appear due for a blasting before the current games end. More than 1,500.000 persons, it Is estimated, will have witnessed the events in the main ftadium by Sunday. The final total probably will be close to 3,000,000 in all competitions. To North America, the most amazing feature so far is the clocklike precision whereby the main stadium, seating 100,000, fills at least once daily, generally twice. and occasionally three times, when the evening pagentry is conducted. Tickets At Premium Tickets are at a premium. Many families and visiting groups are compelled to share the pasteboards unaer a relay system. Uermanys country-wide organizing machine seems able to produce capacity crowds just as if someone had pressed buttons labelled, "10,000 spectators" or "100.000 spectators." Hotels, night cluba, restaurants and other amusement snots are doing a boom business. Despite con trary announcements, prices have been jacked up and thousands of visitors are utianie to get accommodations. Everywhere obvious attempts are being made to impress visitors with the ' new Germany ' which is the keynote of numerous official speech-makers.

The victory put the Cards a full game in front of tha Cubs and 51 ahead of the Giants who kept uti their recent hot pace with a 4-1 victory over Boston Bees. Brooklyn beat the Phillies 6-5.

Team Deadlocked at 7-7 When Game Called in Eighth Inning The Jimmies and Consols failed to decide a winner when they met at Mewata Park last night in the first game of their playdown series In -the Cltywlde Softball League's semi-final. Three times the Con sols took the lead, but Just as often Jimmioa tied the count, and when the umpire called the game at the end of the eighth with the light rapidly falling, the score was deadlocked at 7-all. The loop has been packing in the fans over most of the season, but last night's attendance eclipsed all records, with the bleachers packed to capacity and an overflow of fans encircling the entire eulrtela. The game was replete with every mixture of softhall that usually goes with a playoff fixture, and the huge crown was treated to a fine show. Consols got to Roy Ferguson in the second and third innings, and at the same time took advantage of a couple of misplays, to run up a 4-0 count, but the lead was shortlived, as Jimmies ran wild in the fourth when Pete Prokopy lost control on the Cnnsol mound, allowing two hits after giving three free trina, four runs crossing the plate. Consols moved ahead in the fifth. Miller getting a single and Prokopy cracking out a home run to right field, but Jimmies again tied the score In their half of the fwime when Olsen walked. Alexander singled, and Prokopy got a couple of pitches away into the back stop. Mclvor relieved Prokopy, and allowed only one hit over the rest of the route, hut walked two in the seventh when Jimmies tied the score at seven-all, after Consols had scored in the same inning as Miller and McCartney singled.

Jenkins and Grills, who staged one of the best games of the year on Monday night in the first game of their semi-final series, will meet again tonight In the second game of the round, with Grills making a desperate bid to stay In the race, and Jenkins being just as anxious to finish the series with a victory. Grills lost the first game 2-1 when Jenkins climaxed a thrilling display with a rally in the ninth inning which netted them their two runs after the first two batters had been taken out at first In that game the Grills clung to a 1-0 lead as Teddy Schreiner, Jenkins' hurler, had them helnless after the second inning, and had appeared to have the game won until Schreiner ntarted the fireworks by banging out a single in the ninth, the next two batters following the example. A win for Jenkins tonight would send them into the finals, while if Grills come through, a third game will be played on Friday, lonights game is slated to get To U.S.Matman In Olympic Test Loses Out in Fourth Round In One of Best Displays In Wrestling BERLIN, Aug. 5.
