4 0 Juno 27. U)7I L ìik (4 ii Simday joninal and Slar Smith Smashes 440 Mark McCloughan Says He ’II Probably Quit Pro Football Eugene, Ore. (/Pi — UCLA's John Smith smashed the world 440-yard dash record Saturday as he won at the Amateur Athletic Union’s Track and Field Championshps in :44.5 seconds. Then Sid Sink of Bowling' (ireen, Ohio, came on to smash the American record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 8:20.4 as he cut loose with a tremendous drive on the final lap. He overlook Mike Manley of the Oregon Track Club in the final 50 yards. Sink, the national collegiate champion, bettered the 8:30.0 American record set by (Jeorgc Young in 1908. Australian Kerry O'Brien holds the world record at 8:22. Smith, a 20-year-old junior, became the .second collegiate champion to post a world mark in this meet at the University oi Oregon's Hayward Stadium — preceded Friday by a 120- yard high hurdles mark of 13 seconds flat by Hod Milburn of Southern University. Smith’s teammate, Wayne Collett, held the lead until only 00 yards remained when the defending AAU champion and NCAA winner pulled ahead. The winning 440 time on the urethane all-weather track bettered by two-tenths of a second the world record of :44.7 established by Curtis Mills of Texas A&M in 1969. F'inishing second in the bright sunshine, Collett equalled Mills’s record time. Half an hour later, it was raining. Fred Newhousc of the U.S. Army finished third in ;45.7 in the race dominated by the pair from UCLA's national collegiate champions. Ralph Mann of the Southern California Striders successfull\ <lefended his 440-yard intermediate hurdles title with a winning time of :49.3 in a duel with Wes Williams of the San Uit'go Track club, who finished in the same time. The time was one-half second short of Mann’s woi ld record. One defending champion faileri. Bob Seagren of the Striders, the Olympic gold medal winner, failed to clear the optming height of 16 feet in the pole vault. "1 was nervous and couldn’t sleep last night.” declared Smith. “Wayne and I have been running together all year long. We figured it was time for us to step down and really run. 1 told him this morning, it was time for the world record to tall, but we didn't know who was going to do it ” Collett commented, “I'm frustrated. Fverytime 1 get in a big meet, 1 run bad.” .luris LuziiLs, formerly of William and Mary and now in the .Marines, woJi the 880 in 1:47.1.

Kent .McCloughan iJKCiy 10 Retire By RANDY YORK Broken Bow — Kent McCloughan, former all-Big Eight hall- back at Nebraska and all-American football league defensivi; back at Oakland, said here Saturday that he would probably' announce his football retirement early ne.xt week. “It’s enevitable that you’ve got to quit the game somctinie,” the 28-year-olJ McCloughan said at his parents’ home here. “And right now I’m leaning very heavMy toward retirement.” ■McCloughan, a former Sunday Joiu-nal and Star High School .Athlete of the Year ai fb’oken Bow, was traded by the Raiders to the Los Angeles Rams early last week in a three-player deal that also sent former Nebraska all-American tackle Bob Brown to Oakland. “1 was not shocked by the trade.” .McCloughan said, “because 1 actually had expected it the year bofore. If 1 would have been completely healthy, of course, the traiJe would have really disappointed me. ‘But since I have had a lot of trouble with my knee the last couple of years after my second operation (in 1968 and ’69), I had told the Raiders that I was thinking of retiring unless I in- of- would get a chance to play side safety,” McCloughan fered. “I was positive that was the only place that I could play because I have lost a litUe speed for the corners,” the former .Nebraska prep sprint champion added. “But I guess the Raiders did not think I was big enough or could hit well enough to play inside safety. “I am certainly not bitter over the trade,” McCloughan emphasized. “Oakland has been fair to me and the people there have been wonderful to me even though I have had some very good years and very bad years.” The years 1966 and ’67 were among his best when McCloughan was named ali- AFL. He also was honored by Sport magazine in a vote among coaches as “the best defensive back in pro football” in the early part of the 1968 season. 'T certainly went further in pro football than most people thought I would.” McCloughan said. “1 even surprised myself. I have no regrets.” A starting defensive back in his sophomore year for the Corn huskers, McCloughan alternated at halfback his junior season with Bob Hohn before leading the Big Eight Con- his senior ference in scoring season (1964). At one point in the 1964 season he led the nation m scoring and finished his NU career with all-Big Eight acclaim and scholastic all- American recognition. “.My retirement thoughts are nothing .sudden,” McCloughan pointed out. “I had toid Oakland before the draft. I am unaware of w'hether or not Los Angeles knew of my plans before 'he trade, but 1 assume they did because Sid Hall, our linebacker coach last year at Oakland, had known about it before moving over to the Rams.” McCloughan, who is married and the father of three boys (ages 4, 3 and four months), noted that he has qualified for a pro football pension fund after completing six years in the league. He indicated that he is considering several non-football connected opportunities in Oakland where his family still makes its home. “I taught a couple of years at San Leandro H.S. in Oakland,” McCloughan said, “but it would be hard for a family of five to go into teaching at this point.” Anderson Replaces Sharinan Salt Lake (dty. Utah '.I’l - Utah Slate Univer.sify basketball coach L.iDcIl Aniler.'^on was named coach of the American Basketball As.sociation champion Utah Stars Saturday. Viiice Borvla, Stars president- general manager, announced at a press conference that Andersen had signed a three- year contract with the Stars. He will replace Bill Sharman,, who quit the Stars June 1. Sharman said he resigned I because of a desire to coach the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Ba.sketball Association w'ho recently fired coach Joe .Mullaney. Andersen said Saturday, “It will be a challenge to coach a pro team, and I'm certainly looking forward to it. “It’s still a que.stion.” he ad-1 ded, “of getting the team to work as a team and of getting the individual players to put forth their best effort.” Rolf Kerr, assistant to the USU presidei^t. said in the press‘d confeience. “In no way will we intei’fere with LaDell in his pursuing this opportunity^ | VVe w'ish him the best ot luck. The balding, fO-y e a r -old Andersen, a close friend of Boryla, led USU teams to five post-season NCAA tournaments and one NIT tournament in his 10 years at the Logan, U tah school. His Utah State teams boast a 176-96 record. The well-liked coach was named the NCAA District Seven Coach of Hie Year by the National Association of Basketball C o a c h e s season. He has been named Rocky Mountain Coach of the Year | four times, and Skyline Coach of thii‘ Year once. A 1951 graduate of USU, Andersen was twice an all­ conference guard. He served as assistant coach to University of Utah basketball coach Jack C.ardner from 1956 to 1961 Kerr said USU had not yet started l(M>king for a replacement to Andersen. But .Andersen said he hoped one of his two assistants. Dale Brown and Cordon Belnap—weald be named. Boryla also annoiuieed that Howard .Adams, former trainer tor USU and the golden Eagles hockey team, would leplaee Buddv 'Tavlor as Stars trainer. Mile 1. AAdfly L auori.
