McKenley Breaks
400-Meter Mark

Dave Barclay Ousted in NCAA Quarter-Finals

MILWAUKEE, July 2 - (IP) -
Herb McKenley of Jamaica, with
a burst of blinding speed that
carried him 15a yards ahead of 'the
ield, bettered the world record for
.0 meters today with a time of
.45.9. The accepted. record is
:46.0 held by Rudolf Ilarbig of
Germany and Grover KIlemmer of
the United States.
McKenley, running in the Na-
tional Amateur Athletic Union
Championships, made his sensa-
tional mark ii the first heat of
the Senior 400 meter trials.
j The race was run in staggered
lanes around the Marquette Uni-
versity track. There was a brisk
quartering wind, and there was
every indication than conditions
were standard, which would pave
the way to official acceptance of
the almost incredible time.
Earlier this year MeKenley
ran 440. yards in :46.0 at Berke-
ley, Calif., bettering his own
world record of :46.3. As the
440 yards is almost three yards
longer than the 400 meters,
McKenley's time today is con-
sistent with his earlier mark .
"I figured that of I could - do
the quarter in 46 flat, I can cut
one or two tenths under it in the
400 meters," said McKenley.
There was a full complement of
official timers, and a photo timer
on hand for the races today.
McKenley won by a full 15
yards over Joe Nebelon of Wash-
ington State College, with Orival

Four of golf's brightest stars

They were serious Jim Turnes'a

Bobby Locke who added a 68 to
his first round 70; home pro Mel-

The big afldience, partial to
Bromwich, sat in almost stunned
amazement as the tall American,.
from Hollywood, Calif., suddenly
bringing his game to its peak,
reeled off the last two games
without loss of a point. He wound
it up with two blazing service aces
which Bromwich didn't even try
to reach.
The new champion, a willful
youngster, turned the crowd
against him by tossing away the
second set in too obvious a
manner. lie didn't evern make
the motions of trying and it
looked pretty silly.
He explained later that he felt
he needed the rest.
Except for the second set, it
was a great match in every sense
of the word, filled with spectacu-
lar rallies and dramatic moments.
Falkenburg had to stave off two
set pointy before winning the
opener, and it didn't seem possible
