The United States starting team will be composed of Ohio State's All-America, Jerry Lucas, plus three members of McLendon's Cleveland club — John Barnhill, Ben Warley and Roger Taylor. The fifth starting spot still is open. Fordham Team Cracks Record QUANTICO, Va. (AP) - Now it's Fordham as well as Manhattan to gun for in the 2-mile relay this season.

Sophomore Frank Tomeo was caught in 1:49.5, better than he has ever recorded, as he made up lost ground and brought Fordham home ahead of Manhattan on the anchor half-mile. Don O'Connor, Doug Tyanan and Tom Kenney, who preceded Tomeo, also may have exceeded previous bests in their 880 legs. Fordham's time was exceptionally good for this season, and so State's meet record 3:12.5 for the mile. Miss Mclntire Seeks Crown PINEHURST, N. C.
