NEW YORK, Feb. 17 -"(:)- Twc
record smashing performers, Gen
Venzke and Leo Sexton, bid fair t,
give the home club a major sharec
;f the honors in the annul New
Yoik athletic club indoor track and'
fieid meet tonight.
Venzke, the brightest star uncov-
ared in an indoor season that hasl
seen full of stars, tops a great fieldj
in the Baxter mile and is considered
almost a sure bet to win. The ques-
tion before the fans is whether he
can better his owh indoor mile
mark of 4:11 1-5.
Sexton, who heaved a 16-pound
shot for a world indoor record last
Saturday, is another outstanding
.avcrite with only Ferman Brix, the
big Califcrnian who formerly held
the mark, to challenge him.
If Venzke can't come home ahead
of the fine collection of runners
who make up the field for tonight's
!ace, another runner who wears the
N. Y. A. C. colors is rated as second
choice. He is Leo Lermond, who
chased thenPottstown, Pa., young-
ster to his new record ten days ago.
Challengers to their supremacy are
Carl Coan of Pennsylvania, who
won the Baxter cup last year, Frarpk
Crowley of Manhattan College and
Glenn Dawson, University of Okla-
homa speedster.
Heading the list of "outsiders"
who hope to win -from the N. -Y. A.
C. contenders is George Spitz, who
apparently has not found his high'
jumping "ceiling" and doesn't know
where it is.
