Record in Discus Throw

(ly Associated Press)
LAWRENCE, Kansas, April 20.-
Outstanding records went glimmer-

sity of Kansas Relays here today
as an army of first-rate athletes
from the mid-west saw their hopes
buried in a rain-soaked cinder
path. Only two meet records were
Athletes from universities, col-
leges and high schools began com-
petition on a field made soggy by
heavy rains of Friday and finished
the events in a downpour which
left the track covered with water
and sent spectators seeking shelter
under the stadium. The rain was
accompanied by arcoldachilling
northwest wind.
New Vault Mark Made
The meet proper was initiated by
the decathlon event. Tom Church-

homa, an Olyrnpic team member
in 1928, successfully defending his
relay championship, after Wilson
(Uster)hCharles, full-blooded Onei-
da Indian from the Haskell Insti-
tute, Lawrence, had won six firsts.
Charles led Churchill until the
ainth event, when the Oklahoman
went into a slight head.
Three athletes hold- the two new
meet records. Tom Warren of

141 feet 9 inches established : last
year by Howell of Oklahoma, who
also bettered .his 1928 mark today
by taking second place.
- Beattie was the only individual
to win two events. He also took the
shot put with a heave of 47 feet

shy of the meet mark established
by Schwartz of Wisconsin in 1925.
The University of Illinois won
three relays, the quarter mile, half
mile and four mile, but none of
them in record time,
Sam Angelo, Texas high school
won two relays, the half mile and
