On Records
S h o t p u t t e r Parry O'Brien's
newly recognized world record of
63'4" may be in for another drub-
bing today when three rivals com-
pete on two fronts, while O'Brien
himself is inactive.
At Santa Barbara, Calif., big
Bill Nieder, the former Kansas
University athlete, and Dave Davis
of California's San Fernando
Valley State College, are slated to
put in the 22nd Annual Easter
As Los Angeles, Dallas Long is
entered with the University of
Southern California team in a
dual meet with Occidental College
Nieder, 243 pound officer in the
army stationed at San Francisco,
has a put of 65'7" to his credit
and formal application for world
recognition is in process.
On March 26, at the University

Of Southern California, Long put
the 16-pound ball out 64'612", just
a few minutes after Davis had
registered 63'10%/2".
Both puts eclipsed the then of-
ficial record of 63'2" set by
O'Brien in 1956. O'Brien's 63'4",
set at Albuquerque, August 1, 1959,
was officially entered in the books
yesterday when the International
Amateurs Athletic Federation met
in London.

'Spent Monday and Tuesday
calling many of the families.
"They would have talked on
and on reliving the weekend.. .
So far, the only thing is 'The
weekend was much too short.'
So wrote the Midland chairman
of a recent international students'
weekend. Twenty- six internation-
al students from the University
went together to Midland and
stayed with families there. Arriv-
ing Friday night by bus, they
went straight home with their
Tour Plant
Saturday morning they toured
the Dow Chemical plant. From
9 to 10 a.m. they saw the Saran
Wrap division. Then they sat
down with company department
heads and union local presidents
and spent the rest of the morning
talking-about research, advertis-
ing, the unions, the company's re-
lations with the town, about prob-

lems Americans meet in setting up
branch offices abroad. They had
lunch with them in the com-
pany afeteria.
The rest of the time until Sun-
day afternoon they had free with
their hosts. Of all the families,
"the Caldwells must have been the
busiest," the Midland chairman
(Mrs. C l a r e n c e Clark) wrote.
"Went to *an average farm, had
discussions, had friends in.
Friend Calls
"Saturday night around mid-
night a friend of theirs called and
said they were having Christmas
at their house and 'come over.'
They threw their coats on, got in
the car and went.
"Mr. T. (from Yugoslavia)
couldn't seem to believe that so
many people would use so much
electricity outside for such things.
Guess the Overtons still had their
lights and decorations from the
holidays and hadn't got around
to store them away."
Sunday afternoon the students
left. Just before leaving, they
gathered for a tea. (One family
was late because their student had
wanted to try some skiing.)
"It was a very nice affair," said
Miss Amber Van, the Ann Arbor
chairman - "so terribly friendly
you could hardly get people on
the bus. They all wished it had
lasted longer."
Trip Sponsored
The Midland end of the trip
was sponsored by the United
Church Women of Midland and
the public relations department
of Dow Chemical. The Ann Ar-
bor end was sponsored by the Pro-
testant Foundation for Interna-
tional Students at the University,
Miss Van, counselor. The Interna-
tional Center and Catholic groups
put on similar events.
And how did the weekend work
out? Fine, Miss Van thought. Mid-
land is valuable in itself, she said,
because of the Dow plant and be-
cause of the striking modern ar-
chitecture of its churches. (One
German student was particularly
struck with how light the church
buildings are in comparison with
German ones.)
And the response of the com-
munity was good; "the feeling, in-
terest and concern on the part of
the community is tremendous,"
Miss Van said. "At any time we
can find families willing to take
students in for a visit."

ASSOCIATE EDITORS-Hal Applebaum (left) and Mike Gillman
were named associate sports editors last night. They succeed
Fred Katz and Dave Lyon. Applebaum will be in charge of assign-
ments, while Gillman will concentrate on personal activities.

Sme Heads for Olympics,
Shines in Quantico Relays

AN AMERICAN MEAL--The Sollitt family says grace before breakfast. (Mr. Sollitt is a Baptist minister.) Kaoru apologized for being
clumsy with a knife and fork; "just like us with chopsticks," laughed his hosts. ,

QUANTICO, Va. (AP')-Big Davet
Sime-who holds two world rec-
ords but never has won a national
title or competed in the Olympics
-started the long road back by
clearing the first obstacle on the
Road to Rome yesterday in the
Quantico Relays.
Sime, a Duke pre-medical stu-
dent, won his heat in the 100-
meter dash in :10.4 which equals
the qualifying time for the Olym-
For Sime, it was a big test.
Although he holds the world rec-
ord for both the 220-yard and 200
meter dashes (both .20 flat), he
has been plagued by a series of
leg ailments all through his
career. A pulled muscle kept him
out of the 1956 Olympic Trials
and every time he came up for a
national championship he was out
of shape.
Culbreath Qualifies
Not to be outdone by Sime, Josh
Culbreath, the 27-year-old timber
topper, qualified for the Olympics,
too, with a :51.3 victory in the
400-meter hurdles.
The qualifying standard for the
400-meter hurdles is :52.2. Cul-
breath had to turn on the heat
in the final strides to nose out
Lawson Smart of Morgan State
College, who also was clocked in
:51.3. Smart also qualifies.
Of course, both Sime and Cul-
breath still must finish in the
first three in the U.S. tryouts. If
they get beaten by someone who
hasn't equalled or bettered the
standard, the U.S. Olympic Com-

mittee will have trouble on its
Culbreath's effort was one of
seven meet records which were
broken. The former mark in the
400-meter hurdles was :51.8 set by
Glenn Davis in 1958.
Manhattan's sprint medley re-
lay team of Ron Colino, Kye
Courtney, John Fernandez and
Art Evans hit the tape in 3:34.1,
shaving the listed record of 3.34.3
set by Penn last year.
Bob Barksdale of Fort Lee, Va.,
climbed 6'6" in the high jump to
erase the meet record of 6-4 set
by several jumpers.
Other Records in Relays
The other records were in re-
lays. The Baltimore Olympic Club
4-mile team with Glynn Wood,
Frank Pflaging, Bryant Wood and
Tom Redda, got home in 17:17.7,
breaking Penn State's standard of
17:29.4 set last year.
The 440-yard relay was torn to
pieces in the heats and the final
won't be held until tomorrow.
First Morgan State crossed the
line in 41.9, chopping two-tenths
of a second off the mark last year
by Winston Salem Teachers.
Less than five minutes later,'
North Carolina College with Bob
Dobbs, Lou Seaton, Walter John-
son and Vance Robinscon carry-
ing the mail, pushed it down to
The same team-with Joe Good-
water replacing Seaton, zipped to
a 1:25.4 effort in the half-mile
relay, taking a healthy cut out of
the meet record of 1:27.5 set by
Winston Salem Teacher last year.
