Jim Crawford, running unattached from Searcy, Ark., was second and Liquor! third. LaBenz ran a 544 last quarter to overhaul Crawford and Liquori in the stretch. AP Wirephoto) LaBenz Wins Second Mile With Sub 4Minute Time LOS'ANGELES (AP) - Just he started making a move Â·toward international recognition Â·as a miler, Arizona State's Chuck LaBenz goes out of circulation. 1 "The rest of the year is up in tiie air for me," said the 21-year-old, 6-foot-l senior. "I have to report to Ft Lewis, Wash., for a summer ROTC camp." LaBenz blistered a 54.4. second last lap Saturday night to jfrtn the mile at the Compton invitational track and Held meet in 3:59.5. It was his sec- 'ond consecutive mile run under four minutes and stamped him "as one of America's best distance runners. 0 Second was Jim Crawford, %59.7, a former star at Harding College in Arkansas. Third vjune Villanova's premier miler, Marty Liquori, last year's "NCAA mile champion. He docked 4:00.8. Then came Dick Quax of New Zealand, who clocked 3:57.8. Two months ago, and fifth was John Mason, another sub-four- minute miler from the Pacific Coast Club. "He's just learning to run the mile", Arizona state Coach Baldy Castillo said of LaBenz. "He used to be a front runner but we knew he could run better from behind." LaBenz was a consistent but unspectacular miler last year at Arizona State for most of the season. He set the pace in many races and ran consistently under 4:05. He burst into national prominence at last year's Kennedy Games mile in Berkeley, winning in 3:58.4. That mark remained his lifetime best until last week's Kennedy meet, when he duplicated his 1969 victory with a superb 3:56.9 victory. Again he used a late kick to win. His victory Saturday earned him athlete of the meet honors but a pretty lady almost took roe honor away from him. Pert Chi Cheng, a Nationalist Chinese athlete who competes for the Los Angeles Track Club, proved her domination again in the sprints. She won the 100 in 10.6, jumping to a huge lead and coasting to within three tenths of a second of her own world record. Then later in the meet, she swept to a 30-yard lead halfway through the women's 440 am ran 52.6, only two tenths off roe world mark set in 1965 b; Australia's Judy Pollock. The meet's only other doubl winner was sturdy John Carlos roe dominating force this year in the sprints. The huge runner from Sea* man's international got a late start in the 100 but still won in 9.5. seconds. He came back to win the 220 in 20.8 over what he called a slow track.

James erased many of the records set by Floyd Little at New Canaan High School, including a scoring burst of 40 points, all in one half, and ran for a total of 1,628 yards. Sanford, an excellent blocker with good speed, helped Derby High to an undefeated season. Neville, twice all - Maryland, broke national passing records by throwing for 4,935 yards and 59 touchdowns during the past two seasons. Vellano was named outstanding athlete in the Schenectady- Albany area and was picked to the All-New York first team. Wide receiver Bob Lane, Glen Ridge, N. J., and tackle Stan Rogers, Pottstown, Pa., were awarded All-America honorable mention. "I'm very well pleased wtth our recruiting effort," said Lester. "Every one of these players comes to Maryland with a superior high school record. We think they will go on to rewrite our record books. All in all, we are convinced this is one of the finest groups of players to enroll at Maryland." Neville and Gawler head a group of five Maryland natives among the incoming freshmen. Others are linemen Steve Kimball, Rockville, and Scott Loomis, Wheaton, and back Chris Carter, Annapolis. Â·Dave Clough, Chester, Pa, Is the largest man on the preseason roster at 6-7, 265.

Bailey, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, led the Jayhawks in tackles last season with 31 sole steps and 47 assists. He added 40 pounds between his junior and senior years after playing as a reserve on Kansas' 1968 Orange Bowl team. He has good football instincts," said Colts personnel assistant George Young who .scouted him at Kansas. "He hustles off the ball and hangs tough against the run to make tackles." Bailey began his collegiate career as a fullback, moved to linebacker as a junior and played defensive end the last year and half at Kentucky State. The Dayton, O., native was one of the top discus throwers in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Hale is essentially a kicking specialist and Maliska is a defensive secondary candidate. All four players participated in the Colts' rookie indoctrination day at Baltimore University on May 23.

"When I wanted to rate hime Pd give him his head and he'd slow down," said Sande. "Whdh I wanted him to run I took a choking hold- and he'd take right off." Many other thoroughbreds react this way.
