Sensational Sprint By Breidenbach Wins Drake Mile


Mehl Captures
Featured Mile
Race At Penn
Defeats Fenske, Venzke
In 4:25.8; Seven New
Relay Records Are Set
The featured special mile went in
dog-trot time, but the thousands of
other athletes in the final day's
competition of the 46th annual Penn
Relays today took up the slack by
placing the record output on a mass
production basis.
Before 32,000 spectators, the high
school and college youths accounted
for seven new meet marks, including
the one set yesterday and another
broken twice today, and tied still
another meet record.
Walter Mehl of Wisconsin won
over Chuck Fenske and Gene Ven-
zke in the special mile in 4:25.8, the
only excitement being provided in
the last 220 yards as the trio made
a concerted dash for the tape after
loping around casually for three
and one-half laps. Mehl finished
about two yards in front of Fenske,
with Venzke another two yards back.
Large Alfred Blozis of George-
town had started the record breaking
orgy yesterday by putting the shot
55 feet 5 3/8 inches to displace the
mark of 52 feet 9 1/4 inches set by
William Watson of Michigan last
Ralph Ross of Army hoisted him-
self over the bar at 14 feet 2 3/8
inches to better the meet pole vault
record of 14 feet 1%/2 inches set by
Keith Brown of Yale in 1935.
North Texas State's team ran the
college 880 relay in 1:25.4 to better
the meet mark of 1:25.9 set by Pitts-
burgh last year.
The Yale 880 yard shuttle hurdle
team ran a preliminary heat in
1:00.9 and thefinalin 1:00.8 to
better the meet mark of 1:01.2 set
by Virginia in 1938.
A Fordham team ran the class
"B" one mile college relay event
in 3:18.2. The old record of 3:19.3
was. set by Maryland last year.

Place the feet about twelve inches
apart with toes out a little on a
line parallel to the direction line.
Keep the weight well on the heels,
and make the initial motion of sit-
ting down, bending at the waist so
that the arms can move freely in
front of the body when hanging
straight down from the shoulders.
Keep the back straight and the
head arid neck in the same relation
to the upper trunk as when stand-
ing. Relax all muscles. Never think
of distance. Think of swinging the
club as a weight. Make the straight
left arm control this action. See
that the weight is on the heels
throughout the swing.

Joe DiMaggio's hopes of returning

following an examination of his right

"All I know," said Joe, "is that I
can't run and the doctor told me,
not to try until the leg felt per-

so I decided to find out just what
was the matter. It may be some
time before I return to action."
Dr. Bennett, however, said the
