With any kind of favorable weather
it is practically conceded that the

the world's record will go when De

missed at 13 feet in the same meet in
which Brownell broke the world's in-
door record, will also vault here.
The record in the discus throw is
also slated to go. Platt of Denver un-
iversity, set the existing mark last
year when he hurled the platter 138
feet 6 3-4 inches. He has beaten 145
feet in practice this spring, according
to reports. Jack Taylor, giant weight
man of Baylor university, Texas, may
also compete here. Taylor threw the
discus 150 feet 3 inches in a'practice
meet this year. Brooker of Michigan,
who placed in the discus throw at the
Penn relays last year, will also com-
pete here.
