DETROIT-It was just one of
those days at the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association In-
door Track Championships yes-
terday-everyone was good, no one
was bad..
Nine NCAA indoor records were
broken in the two day meet, two
were tied, and two athletes set
world ,standards. Excellence was
everywhere, mediocrity nowhere.
There just wasn't any room for,
the average performer in packed
Cobo Hall.
Jim Ryun's sub-four minute
mile, Kansas State's world rec-
ord in distance medley relay, Bob
Seagren's new NCAA record of
17'/" in the pole vault, and on
and on and on.
The meet left a track fan with
a warm glow inside, even if he
didn't know exactly why. No one
event cried out for recognition.
But how can you be better than
All the spectator was left with
was a blur of streaking runners,
straining vaulters and leaping
jumpers. And it was good, all
The trend was even echoed by
Southern Cal's cindermen, even-
tual champion of the 1967 meet
with a record 26 points. Every
Trojan traveling to Detroit placed
in some event,
USC's junior hurdler, Earl Mc-
Culloch, started off yesterday's
action with an NCAA indoor rec-
ord in the 60-yard high hurdles.
He was,.clocked In :07.0, eclipsing
the old mark of :07.1 set the night
before in the trials by a trio of
McCulloch: Leon Coleman of Win-
ston-Salem and Erv Hall of Vil-
To give an indication of the
strength of the hurdles field, un-
doubtedly the best group of, col-
legians ever assembled at the same
time, Richmond Flowers, famed
Tennessee runner, failed to get
past the semi-finals, finishing be-
hind the hurdlers who ended up
third, fourth and sixth in the last
Charlie Greene, Nebraska's world
record-holding sprinter, certainly

wasn't going to be upstaged in the
60-yard dash. Friday night, he
barely eeked through the first
round, as it appeared that a leg
strain suffered a week earlier was
taking its toll on the Cornhusker.
But Greene stepped out of the
blocks like he was being chased
by an angry Bubba Smith, and
flashed home in :06.0, edging out
Glenn Long of Oklahoma for
first. Long's twin brother Wayne,
another Sooner, also made it into
the finals but ended up last.
Could things get any better?
Yes! The distance medley relay
was slated as the next eye-opener,
with Kansas State clashing with a
Dave Patrick - anchored Villanova
unit. Notre Dame, and Miami of
Ohio traded the lead for the first
two legs.
The favorites began to come
on during the third leg, and by
the end of that segment, Kansas
State was challenging' Southern
California's narrow margin. Villa-
nova was some 15 yards behind,
but Patrick was ready to unleash
his speed again.
With four laps remaining, Pat-
rick looked like he would have
trouble climbing into bed, but he
emptied his strength reservoir,
forcing ConradNightingale of K
State to let out all the stoppers.
Kansas State won by :00.5 in the
world record time of 9:44.6.
The exciting finish of the dis-
tance medley relay was only a;
preview of what was to come in;
the two mile relay, where the Wol-
verine squad was stacked against
Fordham, Villanova and Southern
California. The Wolverines lost
ground on the first leg, and by
the time Ron Kutschinski was
handed the baton for the anchor
stint, Michigan seemed hopeless-,
ly trapped in fourth place.;
Moving Out
By the end of half of the 880-l
yard effort, however, the Wolver-i
ine sophomore had passed Villa-
nova's-Patrick, whose gas gauge
was on empty, and left Fordhami
in his wake. With 100 yards re-
maining, he shifted into overdrive
and Trojan Dennis Carr also found
himself trailing the Michigan cin-
Unlike Patrick, Carr had not
run 1,320 yards in the distance
medley relay only a half hour
before and was up to the Wolver-
ine challenge. He pulled around
Kutschinski on the home stretch,
USC being clocked in 7:30.1, and
spoiling an excellent 1:49.8 effort
by the Grand Rapids thinclad.

Acting Associate Sports Editor
Special to The Daily
DETROIT-The NCAA Track & Field Guide lists Nebraska
colors as Red and White. But how do you explain the green
warm-up pants and jersey sported by Cornhusker speedster
Charlie Greene?
And after you figure out an answer for that, why don't
you try figuring out why the lettering on the back was "Aus-
tralia" instead of Nebraska? And the front bore the Australian
Here's one more: How come Greene wears his ticket con-
testant on his shoe so it flaps around under his feet when he's
warming up, instead of on his jersey?
You really don't try to figure Charlie Greene out. Instead,
you just hang around him and hope that some of whatever he's
got rubs off on you.
The occasion was the second day of the third annual NCAA
Indoor Track Championships which saw, besides Greene's third
championship in the 60-yard dash with a 6-flat timing, tieing
his own record, but also nine records broken and another, be-
sides Greene's, tied.
But the whole story yesterday was Greene, because you get
the feeling that somehow he's putting you on.
In the first qualifying heat of the semifinals, Greene won
in the time of 6.1. "Man, I was running slow out there but it was
good enough to win. I'm saving it all for the finals," Greene
commented behind his sunglasses.
In the finals, a false start called the contestants back-all
except Greene. The other five were 40 yards down the track, but
Greene was only a few yards off the blocks. He just likes to
take things easy.
After snipping Glenn Long of Oklahoma in the finals Greene
sat down beside his coach, Frank Sevigne. "What'd I do it in?
Six flat," he asked, and answered his own question. "I could have
done it in 5.8 if I didn't have a bad leg."
The fact is that Greene probably would have done it in 5.8-
if Long would have been clocked in 5.9.
Villanova's coach James F. Elliott came over to con-
gratulate Greene and also to stick the needle in a little. Pointing

to Sevigne, Elliott commented: "How does this guy coach you,
Sevigne intervened: "With ingenuity."
But Greene quickly shot back: "You ought to know. It's the
same thing you use on Patrick (Villanova's new half-mile king)."
No matter what he uses on Greene, however, it must work
because he's never been beaten indoors in the 60.
Now with a guy like Jim Ryun all you have to do is tell
him that the world indoor record is around 3:56 and he'll take
it from there.
The young Kansan, running in a weak field in the mile,
came close to breaking Tom O'Hara's world mark. Jumping out
to an early lead which was never threatened, Ryun sprinted to
a 3:58.6 mile with nobody challenging him except the guy calling
out the quarter splits.
It wasn't the world record that everyone came to see but
it was the fastest time run indoors this year.
As to coaching pole-vaulter Bob Seagren of Southern Cali-
fornia all you have to do is prevent him from oversleeping and
keep raising the bar a little higher.
With everything else wrapped up, and Seagren having won
the vault at 17'4", the crowd awaited his attempt at the world
For an agonizing amount of time the officials measured
and remeasured the height, making sure it was at 17'7". Then
Seagren would check the angle of the bar from each side, walk
down the runway, and stare at the bar as if to dare it to fall
His three jumps weren't really that close but the crowd
patiently waited between each jump while . the officials and
Seagren went through the laborious routine.
In retrospect the meet had only one surprise-Dave Patrick
outdistancing Ryun by far in the half-mile. Ryun didn't get his
world record in the mile but it wasn't really expected with no-
body to pace him. Seagren easily won the vault and Lindgren
had no trouble in the two-mile.
Actually, there is one question remaining from the NCAA's.
How come Greene shaved off his mustache before the meet?
Whatever the reason, with a guy like Greene you know it
had something to do with making his life easier.

DAVE PATRICK of Villanova hits the tape after his record run
of 1:48.9 in the 880 Friday night at the NCAA Indoor Track
Championships. Jim Ryun of Kansas (not shown) trails 15 yards
behind and Pete Farrell of Notre Dame lags in third.

Ryun also put in an appear-
ance, and attoned for his loss to
Patrick on Friday night. He emu-
lated Gerry Lindgren's two mile
performance, leading the field for
all 3:58.6.
Sam Blair of Kent State man-
aged to keep pace with the Kan-
sas sensation, running a few yards
behind, until the last two laps,
when he became the latest vic-
tim of the Ryun kick.
A Wisconsin sophomore, Ray
Arrington, also played hero in the
1000-yard run. For a little varie-
ty, he allowed two of his oppon-
ents to exchange the first spot for
a few laps, and then displayed
the swift and easy stride that won
him the half mile in record time
in the Big Ten meet the week
He charged through the string
in 2:07.8, a full :02.1 better than
the old mark held by Robin Lingle
And then Seagren, everyone's
all America boy, vaulted 17'1/4".
