Second Fastest Time in History Ryun, Just Experimenting, Runs 3:51.3 Mile LOS ANGELES (API-Kansas' fabulous Jim Ryun ran the second fastest mile in history - 3:53.2 — but the personable young sophoinore said Saturday he is still "experimenting." ' Ryun, who of course holds the first fast : est time, the world record 3:51.3, turned in his brilliant performance in the Coliseum- Complon Invitational Friday night before 22,705. And he did it with virtually no opposition. Closest to Ryun at the finish was a former Kansan, John Lawson, some 50 yards back in 4:01.1. * * * The mile shared honors with several others events. Australia's distance champion Ron Clarke, eased up in the final strides', took the 5,000 meters in 13:39.8 which hardly challenged his world record 13:16.6. Texas Southern's Jimmy Hines defeated the world record holder, Tommie Smith of San Jose State, in their 220 battle, 20.5 and 20.6. Smith's record is 20 flat. Earlier Hines won the 100 meters in 10.2. His double won him Athlete of the Meet honors. * * * "I'm quite satisfied with the race, especially the time," said Ryun. "But I feel I am working on a better over-all season schedule this year. In other words, my goal is to hit a peak later in the season. Ryun wili run at Albuquerque, N.M., next week in the U. S. Track and Field Federation meet. * * * "This was sort of an experimental race," he continued. "I've been doubling up practically all season so I didn't know what I could do in a single race." "This was my slowest finish all year," Hines said, adding he felt he beat Smith on. the turn. He said he thinks he can run 20 flat or under before the season is over.

Not about what happened at Light Brigade Field last night but about what isn't going to happen tonight. Blytheville American Legion baseball coach Dwight Williams and business manager S.D. Bray made a dozen or so telephone calls this morning, hopeful of getting a replacement here tonight for Union Chevrolet of Memphis. The Memphis club called off its scheduled battle because, apparently, the big city boys weren't ready yet. The telephone calls were unsuccessful by 9:30 a.m., so there is nothing doing at Light Brigade Field until the 2:30 doubleheader tomorrow afternoon with the Whitehaven Boosters. Blyflieville's Dud Casons beat Helena twice last night in a pair of seven-inning jobs, 3-2 and 6-2. Kenny Beard drove in the first Blytheville run with a screaming triple to left center in the second inning. The DCs added a pair of runs in the third on only one hit, an infield chopper by Jimmy Wagner. There were also two walks and an infield error. The Blytheville pitching was tidy. The Helena pitching was not. That's the story. • . . The Casons' Tommy Kelly was smooth and stingy in the twilight scuffle but went slightly flimsy in the seventh and had to be bailed out by Bobby George. There were no jams until the seventh when Helena tightened the situation with back-to-back singles. When an infield smack loaded the sacks, Williams strolled out . and moved George from third to the hill and Kelly got a stout, well-earned hand. * * * George did v,*iat he was supposed to do; got Judd Grace to hit the ball on the ground. Blytheville got a forceout out of it but a wild throw to first allowed two runs. But never fear. George had to good cheer: he struck out the next two batters to end it. Quick-working Marv Musgraves got into hot water quickly in the nighty. The Blytheville hurter, after yielding two walks, was greeted with a three-bagger by John O'Berle in the first inning. After that the kid struck out four in a row and set the visitors down in order until the sixth. He almost hurt himself with wildness but was saved by some good infielding. Blytheville ran four runs in the fifth inning on four walks, an error and Lee Forestiere's hot single to right. Musgraves allowed two hits and fanned eight in six innings. Ronnie Howell pitched the seventh and struck out two. Kelly srtuck out seven in the opener. Catcher Pat Negro Superstars Huddle about Cassius CLEVELAND (AP) - Cassius Clay and several other Negroes prominent in sports are scheduled to be in Cleveland Sunday amid speculation that Clay may be considering changing his mind on being drafted in the Army.
