Oksanen
BOSTON (P) -- Rugged Eino
Oksanen, the Helsinki detective,
passed Finnish teammate Paavo
Pystynen in a downhill burst
through a driving rain and easily
won his third Boston Marathon
yesterday.
The 31-year-old criminal inves-
tigator's triumph, clocked in
2:23:48, was by far the easiest in
a stretch of four straight by these
flashing Finns.
Fresh at Tape
Oksanen was so fresh when he
crossed the tape and received the
traditional laurel wreath that he'
jogged down the line about 50
yards and trotted back to embrace
Pystynen as the Finnish army ca-
reer man came across about 350
yards behind.
The race started in suburban
Hopkinton under cloudy skies and

Victor in BAA Marathon

in temperatures nudging 60 de-
grees. It wound up in Boston's
Back Bay in a heavy rain storm.
Disposed Last Threat
More than 10 miles before the
end of this traditional 26-mile,
385 yards test, the strong men of
Suomi had disposed of their lsat
serious threat - Lt. Alex Brecken-
ridge of the U. S. Marine Corps,
stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C.
Breckenridge crossed the line a
distant third with Johnny Kelley
of Groton, Conn., fourth.
O k s a n e n, the hawk-visaged
sleuth, ran a much different race
than in his two triumphs over
Kelley here in 1959 and again last
year which were decided in the
last three quarters of a mile.
Into the Hard-Top

of the huge field of 181 starters
into the hard-top at the early
stages and battled each other for
the honors.
Atop a series of three hills lead-
ing to Boston College, Oksanen
made his bid, moving past the
Sergeant from Lapland. By the
time he was on the descent, some
five miles from the end, the man
Kelley tabs a "relentless runner"
already had a 50-yard bulge.
Finland's representatives now
have captured six of the last nine
BAA races with four second places,
three thirds, three fourths and two
fifths. None has come in worse
than fifth.
Gruelling Test
The smooth-striding, indomit-
able races 'turned in by Oksanen
and Pystynen, leaving their chal-
lengers far behind, once and for-
ever squelched the once-prevalent
idea the BAA is a gruelling test.
Though Oksanen's time was well
over Kelley's record of 2:20:05
set in 1957, the detective and his
partner made it look like a speed
test.

Oksanen scarcely was breathing
hard at the end.
'Never Worried Me'
"Pystynen never worried me,"
Oksanen added in the presence of
his countryman which brought a
laugh from the latter. "Kelley
proved not to be as much compe-
tition as I thought," said Oksanen.
Stephen Slavin of Brooklyn,
N.Y., held the lead only a few
paces from the noon start, then
the Finns moved right to the front
and shared the lead. Breckenridge,
who set records for the first two
check points in 1960 before he
faded, was the one opponent the
Finns could not shake off early.
Paul Scott of the Boston A. A.
and Scituate, Mass., Orville (Ted)
Akins of Toronto, who wound up
fifth; George Dickson of Hamil-
ton, Ont.; George Crerar of Toron-
to and Larry Damon of St. Johns-
bury, Vt., the Olympic skier, were
among those who tried to keep
pace with the Finns but could not
stand the pace.

NEW YORK A)--Professional
baseball players called to duty
when their National Guard units
were activated may be back with
their clubs by May 1, the Army
said yesterday in Washington.
President John F. Kennedy re-
cently announced that the 155,000
mobilized guardsmen and reserv-
ists will start returning to civilian
life in August, but the Pentagon
has a policy of allowing men with
seasonal employment to be dis-
charged from service 90 days be-
fore the end of their military tour.
18 Player Total
Commissioner Ford Frick's of-
fice shows a total of 18 players on
the national defense list, 10 in
the National League and eight in
the American. The most important
name players on the list are Tony
Kubek of the New York Yankees
and Ron Hansen of the Baltimore
Orioles.
Although Steve Barber, Balti-
more pitcher, still is in the Army,
he no longer is on the club's serv-
ice list. He became an active play-
er when the club decided to use-
him as a Sunday pitcher on leave
from the Army. Jim (Mudcat)
Grant of the Cleveland Indians is
in the same category.
Hansen was with the Baltimore
club during part of the spring
training period but the club de-
cided not to have him reinstated.

tional League yesterday.

them within two of the modern
National League record for losses

Canadian Olympian Mary Stew-
art of Vancouver finished third in

of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., fourth
in :56.5. Fifth was Carolyn Wood

She was followed by Carolyn

Outdoors Again
The AAU National Indoor Wom-
en's Swimming Championships are
being held outdoors again this
year.
Officials say the principal re-
quirement for an "indoor" meet is
a pool 25 yards long. An "outdoor"
meet requires a pool 50 meters
long.
So the Arden Hills Tennis and
Swimming Club's 25-yd. outdoor
pool qualifies for the indoor meet.
Nothing Unusual
It's nothing' unusual, officials
said. The indoor meet has been
held outdoors often in Florida.
"I didn't go very fast, but I
just sort of finished," Miss John-
son said of her triumph to go
with the 100 meter outdoor title
she won last summer.
A champion was dethroned in
the one meter diving as 20-year-
old Patsy Willard of Phoenix,
Ariz., regained a crown she won
in 1960.
The 20-year-old Arizona State
University star scored 357.50 points
as defending champion Joel Lenzi
O'Connell of Fremont, Calif., plac-
ed third with 351.75. Ann Arborite
Karen Ryan, a Michigan sopho-
more, finished sixth on 282.10
points.
