During the decathlon competition In Helsinki last Summer, Master Milton had old-timers drooling and babbling .his praises finishing Just this far behind defending Champion Bob Mathlai. Even Dan Pen-is, Mr. Amateur Athletic Union, a practicing conservative, flatly declares that the six-foot, three, 210-pound phenomenon has all the natural ability to become perhaps the greatest athlete of all lime. Antiques alreaay are beginning to mention this still raw Negro kid, who will be 19 Dec. 9, In the same breath with Jim Thorps. Untamed Rice Hois* On the football f!eld, Campbell a a human demolition charge. He scored 13 touchdowns in the first four games this year. Is a one-man show going both ways. "He's an untamed race horse with a ball under his arm," testifies Coach Abe Smith. "Knees high, legs churning and head down, he'« virtually Impossible to stop. Certainly he's too advanced for high- school ball. He could fit into many a college backfleld right now." Campbell's Olympic silver-medal performance' > was only the second time he'd ever tried the decathlon —the first being the Olympic Trials. Mathias and Floyd Simmons, who finished third to give the United Slates a clean sweep In the decathlon, have satd they are through. That leaves Campbell—who'll be 23 for the 1556 Olympics In Melbourne —as this country's sure shot. Started From Scratch Campbell started out practically from scratch. He'd never tried decathlon tests. The Javelin, discus ami pole vault were completely foreign to hlr-.;. Tile first time he broad-jumped he hit 22 feet 9, soon was pole vaulting 11 feel.

"Everything I know I got from Coach BBrugulere and by watching and talking to others," relates the boy. Briigulere realized the kid's remarkable possibilities last Summer, and the riainfield Boosters' Club and Junior Chamber of Commerce coughed up 51500 to send the pair to Tnlnre, Cnltf, lor the Olympic Trials. Milton had a better record there than In 'Helsinki. Campbell's best numbers are the high hurdles. 14 flat; high jumy, six-five; and , the 180-yard low hurles, 19 flat.

Chalk talks baffle him, but go over a diagram with him orally and h gets it letter-perfect. "Academically, he's a plugger. He wants a college .education. Realizing he might not pass an entrance examination, we took the money left over from the $1500 used to send him to California and hired a tutor.
