KNOXTRACKMEN HOLD 5 STATE MEETRECORDS \li\! Uniicil I'ra.i.) SPRINGFIELD, May 30.--With the ninth annual Little 19 conference track and field meet written in the history of the Association, some interesting facts arc revealed from the records held by athletes, past and present, of the conference. Five new conference records were established at the meet this year which was held at Monmouth last weekend. Schraub of Knox, negotiated the 440 yard dash in 50.5 seconds for a new time. Ward, a teammate of Schraub, sliimmod over the barriers in the 120 high hurdles in 15.5 seconds for the new mark. Goode of McKendree hurled the javelin 197 feet 8 inches to break his own rec- cord of 192 feet 7 inches for a new distance in the event. Mclntosh ofj Monmouth sailed over the cross bar in the r u n n i n g high j u m p at 6 feet 2 inches for a new height and Chore of Illinois college leaped 23 feet 51 inches for a new conference record in the r u n n i n g broad jump. Knox Holds 5 Records Knox athletes have the distinction of holding the greater number of records in the track and field meet. Old Slwash claims five records, Monmouth holds three, Illinois college two with Bradley, McKendree and State Normal one each. Lombard, which is no longer a member of the Little Nineteen, holds one record and it Is the oldest on the board. Swanson, probably the Olive's greatest athlete, stepped the century in 9.8 seconds In 1922. This record was equalled this year. Records of the track, and field events of the Little 19 follow: 110-yard dash, 9.8, Swanson, Lombard, 1922. 220-yard dash, 21.5, Scnn, Knox, 1925. 440-yard dash, 50.5, Schraub, Knox, 1928. 880-yard run, 1.57.8, Rhind, Knox, 1922.
