Ail hour Irtt^ir lien trolled out and won the half mile In 1:5^.4, the first lime in Si years of I. C. 4A history thai a western tunner had won the half. Eastman is purely a product ol Dink Tcvnptelon's' sound track leaching. He playecl tennis in hi^li school. He ran one sprint in a high school mcet-and finished sixth and last. At Stanford, his brother Sam Induced him Ho try the middle distances with the freshmen candidates. It was 'then thnl Templeton took htm in hand nnd soon predicted V a brilliant future for him.
