Kiinning in law No. 2, Hunt got off lo a Rood start and stayed in the pack for the first lap. Carr, who drew the sixth lane, the outside lane, took an early lead. Just as the six runners finished (lie first lap, Peewee, running third, started to make his move. Ricanlo Urbina of Elmhursl. N.Y.j was a stride in front of Hunt. As Hunt started to pass L'rbina.

Hunt then came on strong. He passed Urbina. then Barlo and punned for the smooth-striding Carr. who was five strides ahead of Peewee coming out. of the curve. Peewee stayed in second on the straightaway and didn't make his most serious challenge until midway through the final curve where he rapidly closed the apparent safe lead of Carr. By this rime the screaming crmvd was on Its feet. As the two runners mine out of the rurve, IVewee nas less than half a stride behind Cart. It appeared thr "unheralded" runner from Illinois might do it. But, Carr never relented. He kept up the pressure. Peewee SPOItTALK By IN» PLARSKI Telegraph Sports Editor Alton can be proud of the showing of its George Hunt in the Golden West Invitational Track and Field Meet Saturday. The boy ran his heart out and it took the greatest 880 runner in high school history to beat him. Peewee rose to the occasion magnificently. His attitude during his stay in the California city was one of calmness and confidence. Even when he found out Dennis Carr of Whittier, Calif, had scratched from the mUe and entered the half mile, he didn't waver in his emotions. He was ready to meet the challenge of the all-time champ of high school half milers. The only pre-meet report most of the athletes and coaches had on Hunt was "this guy from Illinois is a pretty good runner." Most of the attention focused on Ricardo Urbina of Elmhurst, N. Y., the pride of the East. He had run two brilliant races in Madison Square Garden and fans out that way were all agog over him. Another pre-meet favorite was Mike Coley of San Maria, Calif. But, he failed to show and was scratched. So, all Peewee had to do was beat Carr. All he had to do? It wasn't an impossible Nothing is in the sport of track. Carr set a blistering pace. He took the lead before the first turn and pressured the rest of the field — except Hunt. Peewee had just one bad moment — when he was; boxed in for a split second before heading into the! next-to-last curve. He came out of it nicely, though, and gave the California partisans some anxious moments later when he challenged Carr on the final curve. After the race Hunt was a thoroughly pooped lad. "I thought I was dead," he said about the final 10 yards of the race when Carr led him across the finish line by three strides. Peewee had only one regret about the race. "I should have made my move sooner," he said. "I think I could have caught him." This Carr was too much. He is everything they say of him. He had intended to enter the mile, an event in which he was timed in 4:08.7 this year. Southern California University can hardly wait to get him enrolled. You'll hear a lot about this boy in future years if he continues at his present pace. Until the athletes stepped on the track Saturday afternoon, it was the first time they got a look at the site of the national meet. Previously, they had all worked out at the USC track. The Los Angeles State College track is of crushed brick and red clay and is one of the finest tracks on the West Coast. The campus is not a big one, but the buildings are beautiful. The athletes were treated to a buffet style supper after the meet. Each of the first four winners in each event received plaques. Every boy who finished fifth or lower in each event received medals. couldn't catch him and in the final 60 yards Carr was a winner by three strides over the exhausted Hunt. It was a brilliant effort by Hunt. His previous best time was 1:54.6. Carr had run the 880 in 1:49.2 and 1:50.9, plus Saturday's time, this year. He has been acclaimed the greatest half miler in high school history. Hunt's time of 1:51.7 is the sixth fastest in high school history. Just a month ago he was recovering from a shoulder separation. Hunt finished well ahead of Urbina, whose time was 1:53.0. Nils Venge of San Marino, Calif., was fourth with 1:54.2, Barto fifth with 1:56.3 and Mike Curtis 1:58.4. Highlight of the meet \ra* the pole vaulting event where Marc Savage of Clnremonl, Calif, soared 15 feet \'j Inch to become the greatest vnnlter In high school history. However, since only graduating seniors competed In (Ms meet, none of the records will go down as national marks. For his brilliant effort, Savage was named the outstanding athlete of the meet. In the state finals in California, he had finished fourth. The first five vaulters broke the meet record of 14-4*4. Runner- up Bill Fosdick of San Jose, the California state champ, went 14-9. The other three vaulters had 14-5 of North Eugene, Ore., sixth at| efforts. The two-mile run was the first event of the day. Tracy Smith of Arcadia. Calif, took an early lend, led the entire way and was an easy winner. The 120-yard high hurdles was a thriller. The first three runners were all timed in :14.1, but Jerry Saffell of LaPorte, Ind. was declared the winner over second place Don Shy of Pomona, Calif, and Ed Orr of Los Angeles. Saffell was the Hoosier Slate champ in both the highs and lows. He couldn't, however, come back later to win the 180 low hurdles. Lithe Al Mann of Fresno, Calif, tied the meet record with an :18.8 clocking in edging Saffell by a tenth of a second. The 100-yard dash was another crwd-stirrer.

No doubt you'll be hearing ot some of t lie- boys \\lio took part in the meet in future years. Names like Swarts, Savage, Carr, Hunt, Channell, Smith, White, Wilhelm, House, Greene, Saffell will be popping in sports pages all over the country the next three and four years. Probably some will be in the 1964 Olympics. The anticipation of seeing the finest high school athletes in action at one meet was a thrill. Hunt's challenge of Carr held the most excitement for this writer. Most of the shorter races are over quickly and fans do not have time to get the impact of an impending stretch duel or fight for positions as runners enter the final curve. Hunt should not be ashamed of losing. He ran against the best. He would have been national champion had Carr not entered, but it's better to lose to the all-time great than be unsure of prestige without a Carr running. jola. 3. Cary Weisinger, Marines. LO.

Decathlon May Be Changed LOS ANGELES (AP)—It looks like decathlon competitors — already among the world's hardest- working athletes — will have to sweat harder for their points. That's the word spreading through track and field ranks today. And the man who's most unhappy about it, is the one who has the most points—C. K. Yang of UCLA. Dick Nash, chairman of the Southern Pacific AAU Decathlon Committee, says he has been informed that the decathlon committee of the International Amateur Athletic Federation is revising the scoring table on (he 10- event feature. He said it would be ready for the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. When the points allowed for each of the events are cut, existing records would also be affented. Nash said a general downgrading is expected. This could hurt Yang, who broke the 9,000-point ceiling April 27-28 and set a mark of 9,121 now pending for the world record. Under the proposed plan his score could be cut back blow the 9,000- point level. The scoring table has been revised several times since it was written prior to the 1912 Olympic diamond. Roxana Winner At Speedivay Bill Peuterbaugh of Roxana won both the first heat race and the midget feature in the midget and supermodified races at the Godfrey Speedway Sunday afternoon. Other midget winners included: Dwight Brown of Decatur in the trophy dash and Don Gerstner of St. Louis in the second heat. In the supermodified events, Gene Banner of Brighton won the trophy dash. Glenn Vetter of Cottage Hills won the first heat, Charley Booten of Wood River copped the second heat. and Spaulding of Granite City copped the feature race. The mid-week date ai the Speedway has been changed from Thursday night to Tuesday night. Modified, stocks and fender benders will compete on Tuesday night, midgets and supermodified on Sunday nights.

Excellent pitching, good defense and the recent surge of Roger Maris have put the Yankees well ahead of the best of the league. Outside of Chicago, Boston is the closest team and trails New York by five games. Maris, who hit 61 home runs in 1961 and then had a dismal year in 1962 when he nil 33 home runs and batted .256, clubbed his 14th home run against Boston Sunday and lifted his average over .300. Manager Ralph Honk has already named his pitching rotation for the series which the Yankee could use as a stepping stone in turning the race into a runaway, Al Downing will open the series and will be followed by Ralph Terry, Whitey Ford and Jim Bouton, who recorded his 10th victory in the 8-0 shutout over Boston Sunday. Lopez will open with Johnny Buzhardt, who has an 8-3 record this season and defeated the Yankees three times last y ear. Chances are he will follow with Juan Pizarro, Gary Peters and Ray Herbert. One of Chicago's high points of the season has been the hitting of third baseman Pete Ward, who is making a strong run for rookie of the year honors. Ward singled home two runs in the 2-1 victory over Cleveland Sunday and also hit safely in the nightcap loss to run his hitting streak to 17 consecutive games. Ray Herbert, getting help from Hoyt Wilhelm, was the winner in the first game against Cleveland and Dave Dubuscherre, making his first major league start, pitched creditably after yielding two runs in the first inning. The Chicago Cubs suffered a 7-6 loss to Pittsburgh Sunday when their defenses collapsed. The Cubs took a 4-0 lead in the first, inning which was highlighted by Ron Santo's two-run single. Chiefs Win 3 of 4 Games The Alton Jackson Chiefs jtook a doubleheader Saturday night from Vandalia by scores of 4-3 and 3-0, then split a twin bill Sunday with Hannibal, Mo. on the letter's field winning 7-1, and losing 5-3. In the first game Saturday night Crotchett got the win, Coleman the loss. Watkins went three-for-flve arid Burmostnr two-for- three for the Chiefs. In the nightcap Bryant was the winning pitcher for the Chiefs, firing a no-hitter. Niehaus took the loss. Ebbeler went two-for-three for Alton. Sunday afternoon the Chiefs won the first contest behind the three-hit hurling of Calvin and two-out-of-two hlting of Palermo. In the Hccond game Orot- clit-tt was the losnr despite two-out-of-four performances by Ebbeler, Watkins and Smith. The Chiefs host Dickens Sporting Goods Store Wednesday night at Jaycee field. Charlie Greene of Seattle. Wash, and big John House of Pnsndrnn, Calif. «pro caught In :09.5 times, nut Greene lunged ahead nl House at the wire to take first. The 5-7 speedster from the Apple State led all the way and just did manage to stave off the late rush of House. In the 440. Reggie Long of St. Louis. ex-Beaumont High School star, was entered. Running In the outside lane, the sixth, Long faded halfway through the final curve. Until then he had been ninning smoothly and In third place. But, when the rest of the field made its movr, Long couldn't keep the paw and was edged out of fifth place by John McGowan of Compton. Calif. Tom Smith was the winner as he came on strong the last 100 yards to beat Leon Home of Sacramento. Smith's time of :47.3 tied the record held by Ulis Williams, formerly of Compton and now a star for Arizona State. (Williams won the 440 Saturday in the National AAU meet in St. Louis.) A surprise occurred In the 32fl-.vurd dash. ,lim White of Dullas, Toxas was the winner over the favored House, (he pride of California dashmen. The race was run around a curve and apparently it was made to order for White. He burst into the lead with 50 yards to go over House, but had to stave off the late surge of Greene, who not only lost out by a tenth of a second, but managed to slip past House at the finish line. Another five yards and Greene would have been the day's only double winner. White, who will enter Texas A & M on a track scholarship, was timed in :21.5. Greene and 'louse were caught in :21.6. The mile, the last race of the day, was a heartbreaker for 125- pound, 5-7 Lou Scott from North- rn High School in Flint, Mich. The little guy took an early lead ;md still held it coming out of [he final turn. Wade Bell of Ogden, Utah was coming up fast with Richie Bright of Middletown, Conn, ninning third. As Scott came ont of the him his left foot scraped the concrete rimming the track. Down he went. Bell almo** tripped over him, but managed to keep his feet, By the time Scott recovered Bright had also passed him. The Michigan state champ put on a Durst of speed, but Bell and Bright couldn't be caught. Scott did manage to salvage third. Bell's time was 4:17.1. Henry Green of St. Louis (0'- Fallon Tech) finished seventh in the broad jump after fouling three of his four jumps. His only good leap produced a mark of 21-2. On one of his jumps he hit the 24-foot mark, which would have easily won first place. The winning distance was 23 feet 3% inches by James House of Pasadena. John Jaeger o( Hinsdale, III. finished fourth In the mile with a time of 4:20.7. He ran fifth most of the race until Smith of Arcadia, the two- milt; winner, laded badly. Art Swarts of Scotch Plains, N.J., who had the best discus throw in the country this year with a heave of 186 feet 8 inches, bettered that and the meet record with a toss of 187 feet 7 ] ,4 inches. The old record of 183-4 was held by Ron Pascarella, Miami, Fla. in 1962. Gary Carlsen of Rock Island, 111. finished fourth in the discus with a toss of 171-2V 2 . In practice throws, Carlsen went over the 180-foot mark twice. The sliotput wan won by BriiL-e Wilhelm of Sunnyvale, Calif, with a heave of 63-7'/2. The high jump was won by Rick Carey of Eagle Rock, Calif, with a leap of 6-4%. Actually, three jumpers cleared that height, but Carey had fewer misses and was declared the winner. RESULTS 880—1.
