Neck and neck they came down the .stretch, but/in the .last five yards Mayor eased ahead to nip the flying Capps by no more than a foot. Heart-broken, Capps was mobbed by other participants in the race, save Lamar. For he had truly run a great race, along with Young, May and Smajstrla. Mayor just ran a heifer one. "Don't (ret over (hat," said Port Arthur's Ken Whallcr, palling Capps on the hack . . . (hey knew you were in the race." Bert Coan, still puffing, walked across the field and clapped Capps on the back with, "That's the way to run that thing . . . you'll get 'em." The mile-relay performance, despite the excrutiating finish, was the night's high-point for t,he out- manned but gallant Ganders. FIDELITY* O u.

They covered the mile plus seven yard* in 3:36.3. Houston officials, second time in two years, staggered the relays wrong, making the Ganders run seven steps too far. But potent Port: Arthur was in worse shape, having to run an extra 29 yards, finishing about that far behind in third. Lamar, the only team in the race that ran the normal mile, ran 15 yards behind in second. Lee got only 24 points for third place behind Reagan's 30 in run- ncrup position but they were nearly all surprises. Bitf Bill Young came through with second in the broad-jump on a leap of 20 feet 8!4 inches. A new sprint-relay team of Lynn Gray, May, Smajstrla and Stan MeKinney g r a b b e A a fourth after un original quartet had been shut out in tr.vo previous meets." U". C. Wallace, McKinnye, Bill Hearon and Smajstrla combined^ to give Lee a fourth in the S80- yarcl relay, another mild shocker. Bill -Finch grabbed a fourth in the shot and Prentice Davis edged him for second. Lee's three milers, Bubba Hawkins, Jerry Mabry and Jim McLean failed to place in the terrific, race that had three men breaking the previous record. Victoria Ronnin Weber did •1:32.3 as Port Arthur's Johnny Walker and Lamar's Barnett Oarrison also smashed the 4:36.9 mark, set two years ajfo by Miller's Mnro Garcia. Loaded like a seven-day drunk, powerful Lamar scored high in 12 of the 13 events as they trampled the field. But Reagan's Leonard Fawcctt turned in a scintillating finish to defeat Lamar's 880-relay team and rankle the Lamars. Fawcett, • amazinsj one-armed youngster, scored ~11 individual points to pace the rimners-up setting a new broad-jump record, 23-1. •Jim Allison, Lamar, won both the shot and discus but failed to reach the records predicted for him. Bert Kiveil's Redskins set three relay records, rnning the 440-yard shuttle in 43.2, the 880 in 1:30.3' in prelims, and the miie in 3:22.2. A fourth Lamar record was claimed by high-jumper, Bob "Williams, who leaped 6-2 3/8. just over Lamar Henry Dickson's, old mark. Billy Hinkle's 11-10 pole vault record went by the boards as Victoria's - i^llke Howell set a new standard at 12-4. The win gave the swaggering Lamar powerhouse its fourth consecutive major track championship. HATAWAY ELECTRIC CO. 24 HOUR SERVICE IB.
