CLEVELAND - Allie Reynolds
shut out the Cleveland Indians on
r nine well-spaced hits last night,
and his New York Yankee team-
mates packed most of their scor-
ing punch in a seven-run third
inning to whip the Tribe by an
11-0 score that dismayed the larg-
est crowd of the Cleveland season,
It was the ninth victory in a row
for the Yanks' 36-year-old ace
righthander whose only loss was
in his first time out this year. And
it brought the World Champions
to within three games of the first-
The Yankees smashed out 14
hits against Mike Garcia and four
relief pitchers who followed him.
Joe Collins and Gene Woodling
rove in four and three runs, re-
spectively, Collins accounting for
two of his with his fifth homer of
the season in the eighth after Gil

CHICAGO 6, BOSTON 4
CHICAGO - Bob Keegan, the
- American League's winningest
pitcher, survived a pinch two-run
/homer by Ted Williams Friday
night and boosted the Chicago
White Sox to within one game of
first place with an eight-hit 6-4
victory over the Boston Red Sox.
The win, 11th in 13 pitching
decisions for Keegan left the White
Sox only one game behind the
league-leading Cleveland Indians,
who lost 11-0 to New York Friday

DETROIT-Pete Runnels knock-

Following a strange pattern
Washington split its six hits into
two innings-the first and eighth.
It was enough. The Senators scor-
ed twice in each inning.

CINDER SL ANTS
by E. J. Smith
During the past year of track and field activity the fans have
witnessed more record breaking than possibly at any other time in
the history of the sport.
World's records have fallen in such major events as the 10,000
meter run (six and % miles, the 5,000 meter run (three and % miles),
the nmile run, the half mile run, the discus throw, the shot put, the
javelin throw, and the thirty-five pound weight throw. World's
relay records have recenly been eclipsed in distance medley, two
mile, and four mile relays. Within the last month two of the mythical
marks long spoken of as the ultimate in athletic attainment, the four
minute mile and the sixty foot shot put, have been reached, and yet
another the seven foot high. jump seems about to be captured.
The amazing thing about it is that none of these records are
even temporarily secure. Emil Zatopek, the flying Czechoslovakian
with the agonized arm motion, is capable of breaking any world's
record from three to twenty-six miles, though he rarely will run the
longer race. In fact when the Czech army office ran in the Olympic
marathon in 1952, it was the first time he had ever run the event, yet
even then he won a gold medal and broke the world's record in the
Mile Record Can Go .. .
As far as the mile record, John Landy has shown what can be
done to it, and no one would be too surprised if that went by the
boards in August, when he and Roger Bannister of England meet
in the British Empire games in Vancouver.
The half mile, as with the sprints, is pretty much an American
monopoly, yet there are plenty of Americans who have their sights
on Mal Whitfield's record. Whitfield himself is well capable of low-
ering it, as is the Astabula antelope, Wes Santee.
The calibre of collegiate performance in that event this year
has been utterly fantastic. Running on their University's relay teams
in the Coliseum Relays, Pete Gray of Michigan and Tom Courtney of
Fordham both bettered the official world's record. And both of
these men have years of college eligibility remaining.
The field events have been featured by repeated record break-
ing performances. Bob Backus of the New York A.C. has bettered
his own weight throw record so often that the feat is no longer
newsworthy. It seems that all Fortune Gordien, the Olympian from
Minnesota, needs is the incentive to break his own world record, and
Sim Iness, a graduate of Southern California, is just the man to
supply the push.
Frank Held of the San Francisco Olympic Club can be expected to
better his world's record, while the mammoth Parry O'Brien seems
to have no limits on his puts with the sixteen pound ball.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. ( l
-Lt. Col. Robert Y. Whitlow, ap-
pointed athletic director of the new
Air Force Academy here by spe-
cial Pentagon directive Thursday
day, announced Friday the football
program at the service school will
start with a frosh team in 1955 and
build from there.
Whitlow, who played tackle for
the West Point grid teams in the
early 40s, said the schedule would
here which will play us. We don't
expect to play killer schedules,
but they'll be respectable."
"From there we hope to build
up our 'program to the level of
the sports programs at West Point
and Annapolis," Whitlow contin-
In an interview with Denver Post
sports writer Bob Bowie, Whitlow
outlined an 18-sport program for
The biggest headache in Whit-
low's job is cash. Government
money doesn't go for service acad-
emy athletics. They have to find
their own, and the Air Force Acad-
emy has no alumni.
Whitlow plans visits to 'West
Point and Annapolis and other
leading schools next month to look
over the athletic programs. His
visits will include Purdue, Notre
Dame and Michigan.
The seating capacity of the sta-
dium planned for the academy has
not beendetermined. Unofficially,
there's been talk of a 50,000 seat
arena, about double the size of the
stadium at West Point and An-
Two structures have been of-
fered for temporary use. They are
the Denver University Stadium,
with a 27,500 seating capacity, and
the 10,000 seat Penrose Stadium
at Colorado Springs.
Whitlow, a native of Fresno, Cal-
if., has been serving as director
of athletics for the Air Defense
Command, which has its headquar-
ters in Colorado Springs. He won
the Pacific Coast service cham-
pionship with his team from Ham-
ilton Field in 1952.

"The HIGH and the MIGHTY"
Broad Jumpers Slough Off.. .
An oddity appears amongst all this record breaking. No one has
approached Jesse Owen's world's record of 26 feet 8% inches in the
broad jump that the fleet Buckeye set on Ferry Field back in 1935.
In fact if one were to carefully examine the results of major meets
around the country 'he would discover that if anything broad jump-
ing has regressed since the 1920's when Michigan's Dellart Bubbard
leaped 25 feet 10/8 inches.
Yet this apparent decline can be quite easily explained, for in
the twenties and thirties the finest sprinters usually broad jumped.
Hubbard and Owens were both national sprint champions, while today
no really good sprinter will do anything but sprint. For example,
everyone would have thought Leo Johnston completely crazy if he
had broad jumped his champion sprinter, Illini Willie Williams, al-
though no one doubts that Williams would have made a truly fine
There are numerous factors to which one can point as important
in this plethora of record breaking performances. First and fore-
most should be the entirely new approach to distance running in re-
cent years. As Ken Doherty, present track coach at Pennsylvania and
the former Michigan coach says "they have taken the fun out of
running." The modern distance runner must resign himself to a
training program of long grueling workouts that would make the
staunchest harrier of yesteryear blanch at the thought.
* * * *
Science Does Its Bit . ..
Scientific application of information discovered during the course
of military research on fatigue during World War II has contributed
greatly. It is interesting to note that for months before his great race,
Bannister kept careful notes on his pulse, blood pressure, and sugar
content, before, during and after every workout. For almost two years
he worked at enlarging his heart and slowing his pulse so as to raise
his oxygen intake.
Thirdly one can point to the natural improvement of the com-
petitors. This improvement can be contributed to three primary fac-
tors. First, the increased prestige that track has acquired in recent
years has resulted in more of the finer athletes who previously com-
peted in other sports concentrating on track.
Second, the increased prestige linked with greater rewards for
the competitor has greatly added to the incentive which is so necessary
for top notch performances. And lastly, coaching techniques and ath-
letic equipment are ever improving as coaches and manufacturers use
their evergrowing store of knowledge and experience to train and
outfit the competitors.
The only possible conclusion is that future track men will be
striving to better marks that to us seem infinitely unobtainable for,
what the men of yesteryear thought were impossible physical efforts,
have already been shown to be possible. It will not be long before
writers and fans will be discussing new dream performances to re-
place the four minute mile, the sixty-foot put and the seven foot
