9MNDUBTFUL: Robie Sets Olympic Record in Medleyi

By The Associated Press 1
TOKYO - Gerry Lindgren,
America's top hope for its first
10,000-meter gold medal in Olym-
pic history, joined the growing list
of U.S. track stars bogged down
with injuries when he sprained
an ankle in a morning workout
"The ankle puffed up good," said
team trainer Delmer Brown. "It
will trouble him in the finals."
Lindgren, a scrappy, 5-foot-6,
120-pound teenager, was consider-
ed a top threat to win America's
first distance medal since 1908
when Mel Sheppard won the 1500-'
meter run and John Hayes cap-
tured the marathon.
The United States has never
won the 5000-meter or 10,000-me-
ter runs.
The 18-year-old Lindgren, who
will make his big bid in tomor-
row's final after capturing the
fancy of fans in the United States,
was added to an American injury
list that already included pole
vaulter John Pennel, marathoner
Buddy Edelen and discus thrower
Al Qerter among others.
Pennel; one of two vaulters ever
to scale 17 feet, has been con-
tinually bothered by a lingering
pain in his back and has been
forced to skip practice sessions.

Edelen has been bothered by a
sciatic condition in both ham-
string muscles while Oerter has.
been slowed by a rib injury.-
Discus thrower Oerter pulled a
muscle in his rib cage Sunday and
it was feared he would not be
able to compete.'
"The injury was not as bad as
it looked," U.S. team physician Dr.
Daniel Hanley said. "Al's working
out today, doing exercises, and he
will be in shape for the games."
Coach Bob Giegengack said Oer-
ter was improving, but "he still is
in pain. He is reporting to train-
ing quarters every few hours for
heat treatment. We're keeping him
tightly trussed up and that's the
way he will compete."
Oerter's event comes up Thurs-
day, the second day of track com-
Giegengack also tried to mini-
mize the extent of the injuries that
have slowed the progress of at
least another five of his athletes.
Among those with things to wor-
ry about are hurdler Blaine Lind-
gren, bruised right knee; 800-me-
ter runner Jerry Siebert, virus;
dash man Henry Carr, back ache;
distance, runner Bob Schul, sore
calf muscles, and hurdler Rex
Cawley, thigh injury.

TOKYO-Carl Robie, Michigan
sophomore from Drexel Hill, Pa.,
set a new Olympic Games record
in qualifying for the finals of the
400-meter individual medley late
Sunday night in the jam-packed
15,000-seat National Auditorium.
Robie will lead the maximum
three-man United States team
into Wednesday morning's finals.
Besides Robie, Americans Dick
Roth, a 16-year-old schoolboy, and
Southern Cal junior Ray Saari
qualified for the finals in third.
and fourth places, respectively.
Led Qualifiers
Robie led the eight qualifiers
with a time of 4:52.0 which be-
came an Olympic Games record
because this is a new event. Roth
-was second in his heat to Canada's
John Gilchrist, finishing with a
time of 5:01.3. Roth holds the
world record of 4:48.6. Saari won
his heat inah5:02.3 clocking.
Before the G a mn e s started,
Robie's chances for winning a
medal were considered better in
the 200-meter butterfly. He qual-
ified third in the individual med-
ley behind Roth and Saari in the.
U.S. Olympic Trials but was sec-
ond in the butterfly.
In the butterfly event, Fredj
Schmidt, an Indiana junior, won
in the Trials with a 2:08.0 time
with Robie second in 2:08.2. These
are the two fastest times in the
world outside of Australian Kevin
Berry's world record of 2:06.9.

*A career

* *Some notes about you, about
us, and the advertising business
About you. If you are the man we seek, you have an
insatiable curiosity about people and the world around you.
You're alert and responsive to new ideas, new ways of doing
things. You like to take on new problems ... you see them as
You dig deep into the why of things. And the best answers
you can come up with today are never good enough for you
You're an individualist. Yet you thrive on team spirit.
You have conviction about freedom of choice, consistent
with the rights of others.
You're the kind of man who could be successful in business
for himself, but you see the greater challenge implicit in to-
day's major enterprises.
About us. The J. Walter Thompson Company was formed
100 years ago and has long been one of the world's largest
advertising firms. Its stock is owned by more than five hun-
dred active staff members.
We help over 500 companies in the United States and

In our experience, superior individuals from every graduate and
undergraduate educational discipline find successful careers
in a major agency such as the Thompson Company. Staff
members in our New York Office alone represent nearly three
hundred colleges and universities here and abroad.
Your career with us. You may be surprised to learn
that while an advertising company must have artistically cre-
ative people, it depends just as much on people who are imagi-
native and inventive in other ways.
Our business is selling. Communicating through the written
and spoken word is how we sell. You must possess the ability
to speak and write well so your ideas may be shared and
We are looking for the kind of men who wish and are able to
assume substantial responsibility early in their business lives.
To such men we offer a remarkable chance to grow and develop
-one seldom found in any firm.
Previous advertising experience is not required. Basically,
our interest is in the nature of a person rather than in his
specialized knowledge and abilities.
We offer you no standard starting salary, no cut-and-dried
training program. Beginning salaries are individually con-
sidered and compare favorably to those of other national firms.
We help you tailor your own development program, based on
your interests, your abilities, your goals. Your program will
differ from other men's programs just as you differ from
other men.
When you join us you will work side by side with experi-
enced advertising men. Your growth will be based on your own
initiative, your own development. There are no age or senior-
ity requirements to limit the responsibility you can earn.
We encourage you to follow your curiosity into all phases of
advertising, because we want you to become a well-rounded
practitioner as rapidly as possible. Experienced advertising
men are eager to coach you individually in your efforts to
develop your capabilities. Additionally, you are free to delve
into every nook and cranny of advertising through our
annual series of professional seminars, workshops and classes.
You learn from men who are experts in their fields,
About men who join us. A remarkable number of
-college men who have joined us in the past decade have re-
mained with us and are enjoying varied, exciting careers.
Because of our emphasis on early growth, relatively young
men commonly handle major responsibilities in many phases
of our business-both in this country and abroad.
All initial assignments are in New York City or Chicago,
but we have many other offices in the United States and
throughout the world; and if you are interested, you may
request a transfer later on.
If you wish to bea candidate, you must graduate by 1965 and
be able to join us by June of 1966. You may obtain further in-
fornmation at the placement office. Please check there regard-
ing the possibility of a personal interview. We shall be on
campus October 22 and 23.
