Host to the meet which was a war casualty will be the Lincoln Gun club. Club officials already have 75,000 traploads on hand to cover the shoot, adding to the speculation that this year's event may be a record-breaking affair. Slate trophies and $600 are on the prize lists, with the shoot featuring state singles, doubles, handicap, state laciies, state Junior and the Nebraska East-West team race. The state shoot will be held at the club’s traps located three- quarters of a mile north of Highway No. 6 on No. 48th st. • • • THE A.T.A. «trophy goes to the 200 target winner; state trophies to the ladies and junior champions and state medals to winners in each of the four classes. The East-West race, dividing line being Grand Island, Hastings and St. Paul, is for $50 for the winning team of 10 “clay busters.” H. H. Wheeler, jr., of Lincoln, is chairman of the executive committee of the Nebraska Sportsmen’s association. Other members of the group are Art Carmody, Trenton; Dayton Dorn, Big Spring; C. W.

Don Pcgler, top-man in the National Open qualifying last Monday, has been mentioned. Pegler, always in the running, has yet to enter the Capital City’s charmed circle. He could be tough to beat. Some of the other favored contenders are Bill Malone, who battled Rucklos for the title in '44 while only navy leave, has been discharged and played a lot of golf this year; Whitey Reed, 1940 king; Bill Blythe, remembered for his game 42-hole fight against Emil Frank in last year’s semifinals; Sam Spomer, who reached the semi-finals last year, and Charlie Odle, who has resigned his amateur status, Darkhorses?

Hurrisoii Dillard Equals World Low Hurdle Mark, 22.5 DELAWARE, O. (UP). Harrison Dillard of Baldwin-Wallace college Saturday tied the world record of 22.5 seconds for the 220- yard low hurdles in the all-Ohio college track meet. The record was set in 1941 by Fred Wolcott of Rice. The feat climaxed a brilliant day for the dusky B-W flash, who broke a meet record and tied another field record as he led his team to a decisive victory over second place Miami, Dillard first tied the held record of 9.6 seconds for the 100-yard dash, set in 1930 by George Simpson of Ohio State. He came back a few minutes later to set a new meet record of 14.2 seconds in the 120-yard high hurdles. Baldwin-Wallace swept five first places and four seconds for a total of 53*4 points, to Miami’s 39*4. Tickets Selling Out Fast BY JAt'K t I DDY. NEW YORK (UP). With the Joe lA-iulii-Biny Ctmn fight only 11 days off. the demand for $10(1 ticket; is so great that Mike Jacob has arranged for the installation of 15,000 rini, .idr jG-atj at Yankee stadium instead oi the 10,000 originally planned, he disclosed Saturday. Jacobs said, “We already have :«old more than 12,000 of the $100 .seats. The big dt-mand so far hag been for $100 and $50 tickeLs. • • • MIRE E.STIMATED that he has approximately $1,900,000 In the till. When asked If the ultimate gate would reach $3,000.000. he chuckled and replied, “Honestly. !I don’t know what it will do. It I might go over $.1,000,000, and it 'might go under, I wouldn’t want to make a guess yet. However, it ..hould do very well, because the hot call for cheap seats usually ('omes in the last wt'ok beforz* a big outdoor fight ’’ .lacohs said the new ringside layout, with its aluminum uprights and “an individu.il chair for every ringside spectatqr” will cost more than $100,OUO. • • • MEANWHILE champion Louis continued his training at Pompton Lakes, N. J.; and challenger Conn continued at Greenwood Lake. N.J., while the betting price remained fixed at 13-5 favoring Louis. Including Saturday’s sparring sessions, Louis has boxed 106 rounds, and Pittsburgh Billy has done the huge total of 231. I«oui* weighs about 214 pound.«, and expects to fight at 210—the heaviest of his career. Conn, now scaling 182, plans to fight at 180—about ten ix)unds more than he carried for the pair’s first bout five years ago. • • • UP TO THE present, the training showings of the two principals have helped ballyhoo the bout— Either by accident or by design. Underdog Conn, working with a staff of mediocre sparmates, has appeared lightning fast and in excellent condition. Louis at 32- three and a half years older than Billy — has looked off form in his sessions with the best sparmates that money can hire. Except on one or two rare occasions, Louis has appeared off on his timing and judgment of distance, and he has shown a tendency to tire. • • • both EXPECT to conclude their training on the Monday before the bout, which will be staged a week from Wednesday. Conn will break camp the night before the fight and motor into New York, where he will spend the night at a hotel. Louis intends to leave camp on the morning of the 19th and drive into New York just in time for the weigh-in at 12:30 p. m., at Madison Square Garden.

A duel is in the making between the up and coming University of Illinois track team and the Southern California thin dads for team honors in the N.C.A.A. track meet here on June 21 and 22. N.C.A.A. officials predicted Saturday that recent power shown by both teams make them natural rivals. Coach Leo Johnson’s Illini cinder men rank with or above the nation in at least five events, while the perennial winners from the west coast presently top the field in only two events. The boys from Illinois, paced by fast-stepping Herb McKenley, recently won the Big Ten track meet and are out for other worlds to conquer. • • • M’KENLEY, whose rhythmic and immense strides t<x)k him over 440 yards of cinders in 46.2 seconds in the Big Ten meet for a new unofficial world mark, Ironically didn’t lower the N.C.A.A. record of 46.1 set by Archie Williams of California in 1936. In addition to McKenley, Bob Rehberg, George Walker, and Dwight Eddleman were figured almost certain point getters. The Trojans, meanwhile, have entered 1 men in ten events and were expected to have enough all around strength to give Illinois a hard-fought battle. The vaunted Longhorns of Texas, led by stellar A1 LaWler, were also expected to annex a few points. At least three other aces who paced the Longhorns in the Southwest conference meet, will be on hand. Lawler hit the tape in :09.5 in the 100-yard dash, the same time as that of Bill Martinson of Baylor. • • • ANOTHER RECORD which may fall is the :13.9 high hurdles mark set by Ed Dugger of Tufts in 1940. Three barrier aces, Ralph Tate of Oklahoma, Walker and Dillard were aU deemed capable if the meet is run under ideal weather conditions. Willie Steele of San Diego State has the best mark in the broad jump, having leaped 25 feet, lYs inches, while Bill Bangert of Purdue has the edge in the shot put. Minnesota’s Fortune Gordien, recently out of the navy, and improving rapidly, has the best discus mark to date—161 feet 1*4 inches, while the javelin event had Bob Ijowther of Louisiana State on top. Bol) Fitch Tops World’s Record MINNEAPOLIS. (/P). Bob Fitch of ttA university of Minnesota, Saturday threw the discus 180 feet, 2 3-4 inches to better the World Record mark of 174 feet. 10 3-4 inches established in 1941 by Adolfo Consollni at Milan, Italy. Fitch, a Minneapolis boy doing post-graduate work ai the university, was competing in the Northwest A.A.U. track and field meet. His toss was made against a moderate wind. Autos to Race At Fair Track Fourth of July Big car auto racing, ruled off the Nebraska sports scene soon after Pearl Harbor, will be revived July 4 when a score or more dirt track drivers clash on the half mile state fair oval. That was the word carried here Saturday by Gaylord White and AI Hayes, representatives of National Speedways, the Chicago organization selected by the fair board and the American Legion to supervise the midsummer speed jamboree. Competition, said White, will be wide open and cash purses totaling $2,500 will be dangled as entry bait. More than 50 of the country’s top speed kings have already received entry forms for the seven-event card. • • • THE CONTESTANTS will also be shooting for points toward 1946 national dirt track title awards, according to White. He reported that the International Motor Contest association, governing body of the speed sport, has sanctioned the program as a national circuit championship tussle. The Lincoln race meet is the fourth in a series of early season competition promoted by National Speedways, contests already having been run off at Danville, III., and Cedar Rapids, la. The third program is to be held today on the Wisconsin state fair track at Milwaukee. Among the nationally known speed stars White expects to see in action on the Lincoln track are Emory Collins, national dirt track champion when auto racing was banned to save gas and rubber; Eddie Nicholson, Minneapolis pilot of the late Gus Schrader’s record holding Off#nhauser; Deb Snyder, Kent, O., racing ace; Ben Musick, Dallas, winner of many pre-war state fair races; Dave Champeau, Hollywood; and many others.
