began yesterday morning at 10
o'clock and didn't finish until some
12 hours later. But there were still
10,000 or more fans in the stands,
yelling for Mathias to come out of
his dressing room and take a bow.
LOOKING AS is he had just
come out for the competition, the
young Californian came out and
jogged around the track and then
stopped to sign autographs for a
number of small boys, who leaped
over the fence.
Yesterday's events, run off
through alternate rain and shine,
were so gruelling that one com-
petitor collapsed at the finish
line of the concluding 1,500-me-
ter run.

Olympic Marks Broken
In Track, Swimming

HELSINKI-(P)--An unknown
Luxembourg chemical engineer,
Joseph Barthel, won the spot-
lighted 1,500 meters of the Olym-
pic games yesterday with Bob
McMillen of the United States
coming from last place and almost
nipping him at the tape.
It was the greatest metric mile
field ever assembled andthe first
eight finishers were under the
Olympic record of 3:47.8 set by
the immortal 'Jack Lovelock of
New Zealand in 1936.
*' * *
BARTHEL and McMillen were
given exactly the same time of
3:45.2, which is the equivalent of
running the mile in 4:03 or better.
Barthel's performance brought
the total of broken Olympic rec-
ords in men's and women's track
and field to 23. A big, blonde
Russian girl, Galina Zybina,
broke the world record in the
shot put with 15.28 meters (50 -
feet 2.58 inches) as other rec-
ords tumbled in swimming and
Six world marks in track and
field have now been exceeded in
these brilliant games and one has
been tied.
* 3 *k
WITH SOME late returns of the
day still to come, Russia held the
overall team lead on unofficial
points with 389 followed by the
United States 265, Hungary 110,
Sweden 94 and Germany 74.
Despite the cold and occasion-
al showers, nearly 70,000 turned
out for the widely heralded 1,-
500 meter race and to see the
windup of the decathlon.
So big and so fast was the field
in the1,500 meters that gruelling
trial heats Thursday and semi-
finals on Friday were required to
cut the field down to 12 men.
ROLF LAMERS, a little Ger-
man, set the early pace with War-
ren Druetzler ofthe United States
at his shoulder. Werner Lueg, an-
other German, ran third, with Pat-
rick El Mabrouk of France at his
heels. The tall and fabulous Eng-
lishman, Roger Bannister, held
back, and McMillen lagged at the
end of the file.
The first lap went in a sizz-
ling 57.2 seconds. Then Lueg
moved up to secnd. At the end
of three laps Lueg took the lead
and Bannister loped up to a
close third. Dreutzler dropped
back. Going into the last curve
it was still Lueg. Then from a
challenging position came Bar-
thel. He took over in the final
straightaway as Lueg faded.
Then up came the slender Mc-
Millen, running like a halfback in
a broken field. His sprint carried
him from almost last to a tight
second in the space of half a lap.
THE LAST 400 meters went
een faster than the first-a heart
breaking 57 seconds.

Lueg finished third in 3:45.4.
He was followed by Bannister in
3.46, El Mabrouk in the same
time, and Rolf Lamers in 3:46.8.
Those brilliant times created
new national records in the' case
of the United States, Great Brit-
ain, France, Australia, and Lux-
MC MILLEN'S silver medal cap-
ped the best showing the United
States has made in the distance
runs since the men's track, and
field program was stabilized in its
present form. Mal Whitfield won
the 800 and tied up his own Olym-
pic record of 1:49.2, and Horace
Ashenfelter won the 3,000 meter
steeplechase in the record time of
Marianne Werner of Germany
moved into second place behind
Miss Zybina in the shot put,
breaking the solid Russian front.
Kladija Tochenova and Tamara
Tyshkevic of Russia were third
and fourth.
Pretty Marjorie Jackson of Aus-
tralia won her second gold medal
of the games when she took the
200 meter dash in :27.7, three-
tenths of a second slower than her
world record-setting time made
in a heat. Bertha Brouwer of Hol-
land was second and Nadezhda
Khnykina of Russia third.
THE AMERICAN 400 meter re-
lay team won its trial heat with
ease in the fastest time of the
day :40.3. It is composed of Dean
Smith, Harrison Dillard, Lindy
Remignino, and Andy Stanfield.
The feeling of total disregard
for Olympic records which the
performers in track and field
set up spread quickly to swim-
ming which opened its first day
of competition.
Clark Scholes of Michigan State
set an Olympic mark of :57.1 in
the 100-meter free style semi-
final heats, erasing the time of
:57.3 set by Wally Ris of the Unit-
ed States at London.
HE HAD BEEN narrowly beaten
by Goran Larsson of Sweden, a
darkhorse, in the first round of
heats, and he came back .to beat
Larsson by inches and set the rec-
ord in the afternoon.
In basketball, the United
States romped all over Czecho-
slovakia, 72-47, and looked much
smoother than-it did Friday. On
the other hand, its arch rival,
Russia, had trouble beating Fin-
land, 47-35.
Other basketball scores in the
first series of round robin elim-
inations: Uruguay 70 Hungary 56,
Bulgaria 52 Mexico 44, Chile 74
Egypt 46, France 58 Cuba 42, and
Brazil 71 Philippines 52.

Matt Patranelli, appointed yes-
terday as- assistant basketball
coach to new mentor William Per-
igo, returns to the scene of his
outstanding collegiate athletic ca-
reer of 1935, 36 and 37.
One of the most versatile ath-
letes in Michigan history, Matt
earned eight letters in football,
basketball and baseball at Michi-
HE CLIMAXED three years of
varsity football as captain of the
1937 team. Despite the fact that
the team won only one game that
year and that he was plagued by
injuries, Patanelli was named as
an end on the Western Confer-
ence's second team. He was des-
cribed as an "aggressive, teeth-
rattling football player."
As a forward and guard on the
basketball teams of 1935, 36 and
37, Patanelli was popular with
the fans., His aggressiveness was
evident on the court, also, and
he often fouled out.
Nevertheless, he helped Coach
Frank Cappon's team to third
place in the Big Ten in 1937.
When he left the floor for the
last time he and Capt. Johnny
Gee "were honored with an ova-

Larry Jansen scattered nine hits
as he coasted to his 12th straight
victory over Cincinnati since Aug.

Hank Thompson belted a grand-
slam homer to highlight a five-
run rally.

VETERANS Billy Johnson and
Al Brazle teamed up to lead the
cards to their second straight vic-
tor yover Brooklyn. Johnson broke
a 3-3 tie in the eighth with a two-
hit, single off Joe Black. Brazle
relieved rookie Wilmer (Vinegar
Bendi) Mizell in the eighth with
two on and none out and slammed
the door on the Dodgers.
Souchock's winning homer
was his second in as many games
