Seagren sets record;
Newcomb in driver's
seat as 'M' golf coach
By The Associated Press
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif.
-' Bob Seagren broke the world
>ole vault record by an inch yes-
terday with a vault of 17' 83/4"
and John Carlos beat Tommie
Smith and broke Smith's world
record in the 200-miter dash by
three tenths of a second at 19.7
seconds but his mark may not
be accepted because of the shoes
After setting the pole vault re-
cord, Seagren said that far from
finding the alt tude at this 7,377-
foot site a hindrance, he felt it
actually helped him.
"It may be the lighter air, I
don't know," the 21-year-old resi-
dent of Pomona, Calif., said. "It's
not going to hurt us, that's for
sure. I'd like to have made 18 feet,
but I'm very happy."
The other two spots on the U.S.
Olympic pole vault team went to
former world record holder John
0 Pennel /and Casey Carrigan, the
first high school vaulter in history
to clear 17 feet.
Seagren actually cleared 17' 9"
but when converting the height
from meters, International rules
required the height be scaled down,
4 Pennel and Carrigan each clear-
er 17 ft. as did Dick Railsback but
the latter made the height on his
second try while Pennel and the
17-year-old Carrigan cleared 'it
on their first attempts.
After setting his record, Sea-
gren missed three times at 18-1.
Less than 30 minutes after Sea-
gren had cleared the bar and re-
gained the pole vault record from
his University of Southern Cali-
fornia teammate Paul Wilson,
Carlos set his record.
Dashing around the turn hidden
by trees at the site of these high
0 altitude United States Olympic
Trials, he sped to the tape a yard
ahead of Smith, who finished
second in 19.9.
Smith holds the record for 220
yards on a straightaway of 19.5.
No time was kept for him that
day in meters but since 220 yards
is 213% meters, the record would
stand for both distances. Around
the turn his record was 20 seconds
Larry Questad won the third
spot on the team, tying Smith's
old record and Jerry Bright fin-
ished a disappointed fourth in the
, fantastically competitive race at
The race had no sooner been
run than a controversy arose about
the record because of the shoes
Carlos had worn.

of nuclear - energy." Typical areas in
which the Project is interested are:
Blological effects of radiation, Radia-
A' tion dosimetry, New uses of isotopes,
New tracer techniques, Direct conver-
sion of nuclear energy to electrical
energy, The fusion process, Plasmas as
related to controlled fusion, Radiation
chemistry, Nuclear weapons prolifera-
tion and disarmament, ,Psychological
attitude toward nuclear energy haz-
ards, Evaluation of hazards to urban
populations from nuclear activities, and
Economic studies of nuclear activities
including power producton. New re-
search ideas and pilot projects are
particularly encouraged. The relation-
ship to peaceful uses of nucear energy,
however, must be,clear. The routine use
of isotope tracer techniques will not
by itself justify support. Requests for
grants of $3,000 or less are most appro-
priate. Grants may cover equipment,
supplies, research assistance, and field
trips. Applications for these grants
should be returned to the Phoenix rPo-
Ject by Monday, September 23. 1968.
Grants will be made by December 1,
1968. Application blanks may be obtain-
ed from the office of the Phoenix

International regulations re-
quire that a track shoe have no
more than eight spikes, six on the
sole and two on the heel.
Carlos wore a new shoe, made
especially for the rubberized Tar-
tan track used here and becoming
increasingly popular around the
world, that instead of spikes has
68 tiny rubber brushes on the
Hilmer Lodge, chairman of the
Olympic Track and Field Com-
mittee, said, "The record will be
submitted for International rec-
ognition with the notation that
the shoe worn has 68 brushes."
Pressed for his opinion on the
record, Lodge said, "I imagine it
will not be allowed."
Carlos said, "My feeling is this:
I ran the race, everybody saw it.
If they don't want to give me the
record that's their business."
Mark Murro, a 19-year-old
Mesa, Ariz., junior college stu-
dent, won the javelin competition
with a heave of 263' 9".
Ed Burke led the qualifiers in
the hammer at 221' 9" and Harold
Connolly, bidding to qualify for
his fourth Olympics, made it with
a heave of 214' 5".
Athletic Director Don Canham
announced the appointment yes-
terday of Bill Newcomb as Mich-
igan's new golf coach.
Newcomb, the 1967 Michigan'
amateur golf champion, will re-
place Bert Katzenmeyer who re-
signed last spring to take over as
athletic director at Wichita State.
Canham also appointed B i l l
Newton as Newcomb's assistant.
This is a newly created staff posi-
tion and marks the first time
Michigan has had a full-time golf
Both Newcomb, 28, and Newton,
- 24, are forme Michigan captains
and are regarded as two of the
finest amateur golfers in the state.
Newcomb won the Indiana
State open title in 1961 and cap-
tured the State Amateur, the top
non-pro event in Michigan, at
Charlevoix in 1967.
A native of Logansport, In-
diana, he recently joined the fa-
culty of the School of Landscape
Architecture here, after operat-
ing his own golf course architec-
tural firm in Ann Arbor for three
