He's Still Marathon Ace Investigation or No, Nurmi Will Be on Hand for the - .Olympics. BY WILLIAM BRAUCHt'K NEA Service Sports Editor .NEW YORK.—A bald lillle old man, with 34 arduous yeais behind I •him, is running all over Finland. One day next August he will srum tcr out onto the track at the Olym pic Stadium in Los AHficlcs. ProU ' ably he will be munching nonclin lantly at a couple of doughnuts, a few apples or a sack of banar.ns. v The timer's e"n will bark. Th bald little old man will run awaj from everybody—on u 20-mile miu- alhoti jaunt. And when he crosso the finish line two hours Inter, 1 fflll be announced that Paavo Nur. nil, competing in his fourth Olym pic gamts, has Just established [ : new record lor the 46.263 kilometers, cutting something like hnlf ai hour off the old time made by Kol- S-hrha!nen In the Olympic games o -12 years ago.' C.AU this is surely going 10 happen, because Pnnvo Nurmi jsays il .will. Bald head, 3-1 years and all iiurpiL remains the greatest long distance runner in the world. AIK if he tells you that he will run 26 miles, 383 yards Sn 2 hours 1 inln- • lite and 10 seconds, he will do it even though no man ever lias done It before. You cnn make your bets How, : The Olympic games will furnish mighty spectacles, but there will be none to 'equal that of the Flying Finn, coming down the home- h. pnt-pat-pat. with that dead J his showing no effects of th« milling pace he sets— ".And then, jogging across thc track to, ttic dugout, for his sweater, stopping perhaps to remark to n friend that,"this California nir certainly «• wonderful for rheumatism." ' V • •' • • » : The other day a little dispatch from Helsingfors related that Nur, mi was oeinu "Investigated." The Amateur Athletic Union of Finland • wms peering into his record for the .taint of professionalism. II substantiated this charge would bar Nurmi Irom the Olympic games. But there need be very little worry about that. When the Olympic track and field events begin. Nurmi \ will be here. He has been invesl,!- I gated-by experts. : Just after the 1324 Olympic games Nurmi toured America. He took part In some 50 meets. When he 'got ready to go home a. super-investigation was launched. The result \vns the .disbarment of Hugo Qulst from amateur athletic*. Hugo,' ostensibly, was Nurmi's trainer. As a matter of fact, he arranged for the meets in which Murmi participated. He was a pretty good arranger! All during the trip Nurmi had plenty of fish and bananas to eat. good clothes to wear and mysterious money in his Jeans, The big squawk came at tlie time of the Drake Relays, ft seems that the fact was somehow conveyed Id the Drake people that Nurmi would be glad to run away from nnybody they might name, but the trivial item of his expenses from Helsing- fors to the scene of the relays would have to be taken care of by the Drake Relay people. This slight demurrage might range between $2000 and $3,000. A mighty yelp went up. tlie super- investigation was launched, it was discovered that Paavo Nurmi was o poor misguided paper-hanger from Helsingfors who didn't understand English, and Huso Q,. kt WM ex _ posei to the world as a fiend in human form. -By which you may gather that a rolling stone might gather som= moss, after all. day night. The score was 18 to 1C. The Cooler flik also won over he Steele lassies marking the 4th Imc this season that- Cooler hns ran a double-header victory. The ;lr!s score was 21 to 16.
