Mel Patton Defeats Ewell, LaBeach,
McKenley To Cop 200-Meter Title

Guldahl Shoots Record 64
To Lead in Tam O'Shanter

Wilbur Thompson, Vicki Draves Win as
Shot-Put, 800-Meter Swim Relay Records Fall
LONDON, Aug., 3-(iP)-Uncle Sam reaped another bumper
crop of Olympic championships today, thanks to three Californians
- sprinter Mel Patton, shot putter Wilbur Thompson and
diver Vicki Draves--and the men's 800-meter swim relay team.
Patton, a bitter disappointment in the 100-meter race, sped
to victory in the 200-meter finals, less than a yard ahead of Bar-
ney Ewell, the 30-year-old former Penn State star.
The 23-year-old Southern California student was clocked in
21.1 and the finish was so close that Ewell recorded the same time
on the official watches.
Back of the American pair cam- Lloyd LaBeach, Panama's
one-man team, and Herb McKenley the American-trained Jamai-
can who is a standout favorite in the 400-meter event.
An Olympic shot put record was set almpst every time an
American tossed the iron ball. Nine times the old standard fell
before Thompson, another South- "

... favored in 400

Verban Sold
To Cubs for
Waiver Price
Emil Verban, 31-year old second
baseman, today was sold by the
Philadelphia Phillies to the Chi-
cago Cubs for an unannounced
sum believed to be more than $10,-
000 major league waiver price.
Verban, classed, as the out-
standing second baseman in the
National League for several years,
came to the Phils in 1946 in a
three-way deal with the New York
Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.
He started the season as the
Phils regular second sacker but
recently was replaced by Granville
Hamner when he was sidelined by
an in jury.
"Hamner has come along very
fast," said Manager Eddie Sawyer
of the Phils. "He's as good as there
is in the league now but we felt
Verban should be given a change
to play regularly. He will get that
chance with the Cubs."

ern Cal student, clinched the title
with a heave of 56 feet 2 inches. It
was the seventh track and field
crown won by an American.
Broke Record 5 Times
Thompson cracked the record
five times and fouled out on the
sixth attempt as he nosed out Jim
Delaney, a high school teacher in
San Francisco, who achieved 54
feet 81 inches and Jim Fuchs, a
Yale football player, who did 53
feet 10% inches.
All of this shelved the old mark,
set by Hans Woellke of Germany
in 1936, when he did 53 feet 1%/
Mrs. Draves, a 23-year-old Pas-
adena housewife, led the U. S. to
a sweep of the first three places
in the women's springboard div-
ing competition. The men ac-
complished the same cleanup Sat-
urday. Both men and women are
favored to repeat their triumphs
in the high dive.
Zoe Ann Olsen of Oakland,
Calif., the 17-year-old American
titleholder, finished second to Mrs.
Draves for the first time in major
competition. The final result was
in doubt until the eighth and last
dive was scored. Patricia Ann El-
sener of San Francisco was third.
Men Break Record
The men's swim relay team,
composed of Wally Ris of Chi-
cago and Iowa University, the 100-

meter free style Olympic champ;
Wallace Wolf of Los Angeles;
Jimmy McLane, 17-year-old Ak-
ron, Ohio and Andover Academy
star, and Hawaiian Bill Smith of
Ohio State, broke the world and
Olympic record of 8:51.5 set by
Japar in 1936. The American
quarter was clocked in 8:46 flat.
Basketball, considered a sure
thing win for the American squad,
produced a real surprise when the
Argentines made it close. The U.S.
United States' athletes have
built up a commanding 3 to 1
lead over their nearest rivals
during the first four days of
the 1948 Olympic Games.
The U.S. team has garnered
255 points in all phases of the
games to only 86 for Sweden,
the nearest competitor. Of the
American aggregate 131 came
in men's track, three in wom-
en's track;~ 47 in men's
swimming, 24 in women's
swimming and the remaining
50 in sports as varied as pistol
shooting and wrestling.
squad, trailing at half time by six
points, had to come from behind
to pull out a 59-57 victory in a
game marred by arguments.
U. S. Out of Hop, Step, and Jump
The Americans failed to place a

man in the hop, step and jump
and only one, Browning Ross of
Villanova, qualified for the finals
of the 3,000-meter steeplechase.
But it looked like another sweep
tomorrow in the 110-meter hurdles
in which the U. S. sent all three
men into the semi-finals.
All three U. S. entrants in the
10,000-meter walk were disquali-
fied because they were not walk-
ing in the approved style. Henry
Laskau, Fred Sharaga and Ernest
Weber, all of New York, were
tossed out of the heel-and-toe
Danish Mermaids Win
After their diving sweep, the
American women had to take a
back seat to the Danish girls who
apparently are destined to suc-
ceed the Dutch as team's swim
champs. Karen Margrethe Harup
of Denmark clipped a full second
off the old Olympic mark in the
women's 100-meter backstroke,
winning a trial heat in 1:15.6.
Nel Van Vliet of Holland won
the women's 200-meter breast
stroke championship in 2:57.2, in
the evening competition. Her time
was two-tenths of a second slower
than the new Olympic record she
made in a preliminary heat. All
Americans were eliminated in the
early heats.
Dutch Girl Wins Hurdles
Mrs. Fanny Blankers-Koen of
Holland, winner of the 100-meter
dash yesterday, matched her own
world record and set a new Olym-
pic mark by winning a heat of the
80-meter hurdles in 11.3 seconds.
She also is favored in the high
jump and the broad jump.
Arthur Edwin Cook, 20-year-old
University of Maryland Student,
won the Olympic 50-meter small
bore rifle championship. Walter
Tomsen of Flushing, N. Y.
matched Cook's score of 599 out of
a possible 600 points but Cook was
judged winner because he put
more shots in the center of the
Despite a protest, the American
water polo team was eliminated

CHICAGO, Aug. 3- (AP) - Big
Ralph Guldahl dropped a $1,000
five foot birdie putt on-the last
hole for a course record 64, eight
under par, to jump into the first
round lead of the $50,000 Tam
O'Shanter Golf Tourney -today.
The former National Open
champion banged a five-under -par
31 on the front nine with an eagle
3 on the 485-yard seconid hole and
was back in 3 under 33. A $1,000
cash reward awaited the player
to break the course record of 65

his five-footer on the 18th carpet
for a birdie 3 and a 64. Promoter
George S. May then handed him

White Plains, N.Y., the 1946 Tam

Promoter May, golf's "King

the mutuel window closed. He us-
