For Trackmen ALBUQUERQUE, NJM. (AP) — Albuquerque's thin atmosphere demonstrated several things during the 1966 National AAU Indoor Track and Field Championships, which ended early Sunday. It leaves women indoor world record-setters breathless. Pole vaulters and jumpers can take it or leave it, but mostly would like to take it to all meets. And it doesn't affect sprinters — at least in two days. Bob Seagren, 1^-year-old Glendale, Calif., City College sophomore, became the first 17- foot-plus pole vaulter indoors, going 17 feet, %. inch. "I guess it might have helped," Seagren said of the 5,289-foot Albuquerque altitude. "There's less gravity." Seagren was one of six world indoor record breakers. Another mark was tied. Hungary's Zsuzsa Nagy-Szabo, women's SSO-yard world record setter, was still gaspin for breath 15 minutes after her 2:03.6. "I was ru nning out of breath at the end," she said. Art In- breaking his own indoor record of 54-0. He said he seemed winded during early jumps but seemed to get stronger and go farther as he went along. Edith McGuire and Wyomia Tyus, both of Tennessee State, set world marks in the 220-yard dash and 60-yard dash, respectively. Miss McGuire ran a 24.1, breaking for the third time in two days the record held previously by Vivian Brown of Tennessee State and Marilyn White of the Los Angeles Mercurettes, at 24.8. Miss TV-US' 6.5 bettered the 6.6 mark she shared with Miss McGuire and Eleanor Haslam ol Canada. Charlotte Cook, Los Angeles high school senior, ran the 440- yard dash in 34.2 for the sixth record Another prepster, Bill Gaines, 17, Mullica Hill, N.J., tied the world's indoor record in the men's 50-yard dash with a 5.9 in Friday's preliminaries and Saturday's finals with a 6.0. Miss McGuire announced after the meet that she was quitting track to go to work after graduation. The Olympic gold medalist said she didn't know what she would do. "It's just a record,' ' said Seagren. He missed in a try for the all-time high at 17-4\i. Fred Hansen of Rice University holds a 17-4 outdoors Seagren cleared the bar on his -econd attempt at 17-0%, beating out Toommate John Pennel .md Santa Clara Youth Foundation's Jeff Chase. Chase and Pennel tied for second at 16-6. Seagren's previous hvgh was 16-7 at the Maple Leaf Games in Toronto last week. On a Saturday that was "too windy even for kites" according to coach Clint Nettleton, the Ganders girl's doubles team brought home a second place trophy from the Spring Branch Tennis Tournament. CamiUe Bunting and Royce Marshall teamed up for the trophy after drawing a bye in the first round and battling to a 6-4. 5-7, 6-4 win in the second round. The third round and the quarterfinals were easy pickings as Bunting and Marshall won both matches in the first two sets. The two girls battled through the semi - finals with a hard- fought 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 win before falling to Davis Lezon and Mary Walters of Spring Branch High in the finals, 7-5, 8-6. Karen Wheeler advanced to the third round m the singles division at wnicn point she was defeated by Paulette Vorsand of amar Consolidated, 6-3, 6-1.

He said tha although approval is not defi nit«, he felt the details would be looked after.
