^ Tne (yTTAWA HERALD I Thursday. May 14, 195C Big Eight Track Meet On Friday At Norman NORMAN, Okla. (AP)-There'll be defending champions in 10 of 14 individual events in the Big Eight Conference track and field meet/ here tomorrow and Saturday but all will have to hustle to keep their honors. The 31st annual meet begins at 3 p. m. tomorrow with 10 preliminary events. The 16-event final card is scheduled for 1:30 p. m. Saturday. Heading the roster of returning champions are double winner Ernie Shelby of Kansas in the broad jump and low hurdles and a pair of conference record-holders. -, In the latter category are Aubrey Dooley of Oklahoma State, who holds the pole vault record at 14 feet 9 inches, and Mike Peake of Colorado, who set a new standard for the 880 at Columbia, Mo., last year at 1:50. Shelby won the broad jump at 24 feet 3 inches and beat teammate Charlie Tidwell with a 22.5 burst in the low hurdles. It was well under the conference mark of 23.3 but was disallowed because of a tailwind barely over'the 4.47 mile per hour speed. Oklaboma boasts defending champions in Dee Givens,, who won the dOO-yard dash in 9.5, and Gail Hodgson, the smooth-striding South African, whose 4:07.6 mile has been exceeded in this meet only by Wes Santee in 1953. Santee's time was 4:06.3. Other 1958 winners striving to repeat will be Deloss Dodds, Kansas State quartermiler; John Book, Kansas javelin thrower; Bernie Frakes, Colorado's two- miler and Bob Cannon, Kansas high jumper. Book is given little chance to hold onto his javelin laurels because he will be competing against teammate Bill Alley, holder of the American record at 270 feet 1 % inches. Book's winning heave last year was 215 >/4. Kansas is a prohibitive favorite to win its eighth straight conference outdoor title. Young Golfers Invade Tourney WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. (AP) — The "youngsters" in golf will try to break through the "old guard" again }n the Sam Snead Festival beginning today. Only twice in the 12 years of the tournament staged on Snead's home grounds have so-called newcomers been able to outscore the veterans. That was in 1949 when Cary Middlecoff took it at the age of 28 and Herman Scharlau in 1954 at the age of 33, but making his first professional tour. Gary Player, not yet 23, made the latest challenge last year when he tied Snead at 264 strokes for the 72 holes. The youngster from South Africa bowed to Snead, however, on the fifth extra hole. Player is among the 58 pros aiming at Snead for the tournament running through Sunday. Snead will be the one to beat although he will be 47 later this month.

S. MUIRFIELD, Scotland (AP) — American Walker Cup golfers play this weekend against a man who is so devoted to the thought of beating them that he has hit 600 practice shots a day since October. The man is Joe Carr, a 37-year- old Irishman who was porn and raised on a golf course in Dublin and who has spent. much of his time playing golf ever since. Carr and Reid Jack, a 35-year- old Scottish insurance man, form the backbone of the British Walker Cup team which meets the Americans under Captain Charles Coe in scotch foursomes Friday and in singles Saturday. The matches will be over'Muir- field's 6,806-yard seaside links. British hopes of winning the Walker Cup for the first time since 1938 and for only the second time in history are higher this year than ever before. Carr strung lights across part of the little Sutton course which borders his Dublin home. All winter long, without missing a single night, he made 600 or more practice shots. The American players are: Thomas Aaron, Gainesville, Ga.; Deane Beman, Silver Spring, Md.; Jack Nicklaus, Columbus, Ohio; Ward Wettlaufer, 23, Buffalo, N. Y.; William Hyndman, Philadelphia; Billy Joe Patton, Morgantown, N.C.; Dr. Frank Taylor. Pomona, Calif.; Coe, Oklahoma City; and Harvie Ward, San Francisco. Clock Speedboat At 260 Miles CONISTON, England (AP) Donald Campbell drove his speedboat Bluebird twice over a meas ured kilometer today for an official record of 260 miles an hour. The old record, set by Campbell on the same stretch of Coniston Lake last November, was 248.62 m.p.h. In the first of today's two runs —one in each direction—required by international rules, Campbell's sleek jet-powered craft hit 275 miles an hour. ' Coming back over the measured kilometer the British ace was clocked at 245 m.p.h. For record purposes, the average of the two runs is the official speed. As he completed his second ter rific burst down the lake, Campbell said over his ship-to-shore radio: "I^m afraid i have missed it. I was slow in." But after a long delay the official timers confirmed that he had set a new mark. The new record was IS miles slower, however, than the target Campbell set when he announced in January that he would try to raise his mark. OOPS! BARS TOO HIGH — Hurdling that high jump is no easy trick, but the young contestants at Cook Field Wednesday kept on trying. Here, Carl Johnson, Lincoln, gives the jump another go.
