Track and Field Interest
Booms in, East With Neiv
Records in Indoor Meets
REPORTS from the east coast
indicate that in that section
of the United States, at least,
track is decidedly
on the upgrade.
Sports commen
tators and fans
alike are enthu
siastic over the
indooi* season
which recently
drew to a close.
Tabulations show
that more rec
ord-breaking per
formances were
turned i n this
year than at any
time since 1925, when Paavo
Nurmi toured the United States.
The milers stole a good share
of the spotlight with two thrilling
duels between America’s three
4:10 runners for that distance—
Bill Bonthron, Glenn Cunningham
and Gene Venzke.
The featured Baxter mile of the
N. Y. A. C. meet was the first
meeting of the three distance aces.
While the time was somewhat
slow, the event was a battle of
wits marked by the trio’s stride
for-stride finish which was with
out precedent in the annals of
mile racing indoors. Bonthron
eked out first place by inches over
Cunningham ,the .Kansas star,
with Venzke only a pace in the
rear at the end of a 2-minute last
half after the first half of the dis
tance was covered in 2:14.
In the N. A. A. U. champion
ships staged a week later a thrill
ing neck-and-neck finish was
again in order in the 1500 meters,
only this time Cunningham beat
out the Princeton flash by inches
with Venzke again only a stride
behind. The time for this race
cut 1.2 seconds from Venzke’s
two-year-old record of 3:53.4 and
even the youthful Pennsylvania
sophomore who crossed the line in
last place clipped his old record
by a second.
Cunningham brought further
glory to himself in the Columbian
mile in the K. of C. meet when he
left Venzke some 20 yards behind
as he blasted the indoor mile rec
ord in 4:08.4. Cunningham also
cracked the 1000-yard Canadian
record, pacing that distance in
2:12.2, a fifth under the world in
door mark.
Kay Sears, of Butler, and John
ny Fellows supplanted Joe Me
Clusky, former Fordham distance
man, as the best two-mi'lers in tHe
country. Fellows trimmed Sears
by 20 yards in the Millrose meet,
running the course in 9:09.3, but
later Sears took the honors by
running the fastest two miles even
recorded by an American, indoors
or outdoors, to cut the record to
Walter Marty, Fresno State,
broke all records for either inside
or outside leaps when lie cleared
the bar at G feet 8 3-4 inches while
appearing on the boards for the
first time.
Witli the pole man soared higher
than ever before indoors when
Yale's vaultcr. Keith Brown, forced
the mark to 14 feet 1 inches from
14 feet 1 3-4 inches and finished
with a total of 10 vaults of 14
feet or better in 14 months.
DeHart Hubbard’s old broad
jump mark which stood for 10
years was shattered by Jesse
Owens, freshman from Ohio State,
who boosted the mark from 24
feet 7 inches to 25 feet 3 1-4
John Collier, Boston A. A., ran
GO yards over four hurdles in 7.4
to equal the existing record and
then flew over five hurdles in the
same distance to shove the record
from 7.8 to 7.5.
* * *
Notwithstanding the glory gar
nered by the record-breakers,
Venzke s sensational comeback
after a long string of defeats by
Cunningham brought him much
favor and again put him in the
running us one of the nation’s
premier milers. His pushing to
the last yard forced his rivals from
Kansas anti Princeton to set a new
mark and at the same time he]
rose from the ranks of the "has j
beens" where he had been rele
gated by many of the critics.

Most Progress
Various Stars Hang Up Records;
Several .Meets Booked
For Next Week
With the opening clashes giving
only a few hints of track duels
yet to come the Pacific coast con
ference cinder teams are training
intensively for the 1934 season.
Northern division teams have
not progressed as far in the 1934
schedules as have the southern cin
der tracksters where all teams ex
cept Southern California have par
ticipated in at least one meet. Cal
ifornia is leading the pack at pres
ent, having won meets with U. C.
L. A. and with Washington. In
the other meet of the California
group the Bruins lost to Stanford.
Few Meets in North
Northern division activities have
been confined to the Husky meet
with California mentioned, the
university event in the Hill Mili
tary academy indoor relays at
Portland between Oregon and
Oregon State, won by Oregon, and
a practice meet between Idaho and
Washington State.
California opened its track sea
son March 24 against U. C. L. A.
and won to the tune of 89 2-3 to
41 1-3. The Bears took 11 firsts
and made a clean sweep of the
100. The Westwood track team
found considerable consolation in
losing because of the performance
of Smiling Jimmy LuValle, Bruin
440 ace, who won that race and
ran second to Bullet Bob Keisel
of California in the 220. In beat
ing Washington in an indoor meet
at Seattle by a score of 76 1-2 to
54 1-2 Keisel, Bob Clarke, broad
jumper, Hugh Thompson, higTi
jumper, Bob Fowler, two-miler,
and Kenny Vantress, pole vaulter,
starred for the Golden Bears.
Nearly Breaks Record
LuValle came near shattering
Ben Eastman’s record of 46.4 sec
onds for the quarter-mile, missing
it by one second, in the Stanford
U. C. L. A. meet last w%ek. The
Indians won by a score of 87 1-3
to 43 2-3. Johnny Lyman, Card
shot putter, broke two world’s
records in the shotput by heaving
the 24-pound pellet 40 feet, 7 3-4
inches and the 8 pound shot 70
feet 7 3-4 inches.
In the W.S.C.-Idaho practice
meet, run on the Cougar track,
which was reported in slow condi
tion, not a great deal was shown
in any department. A feature of
the meet was the sight of a 200
pound Idaho fullback running the
100-yard dash in 10.3 seconds. The
hefty runner was Theron “Swede"
Future Interesting
Future plans of conference
schools are now in the limelight.
Saturday the California Bears
meet the Southern California Tro
jans at Los Angeles. Washington
State and Montana are planning
to send track representatives to
the Drake and Kansas relays. The
Cougar team will probably consist
of 8 men. The Kansas relays will
be held in Lawrence, Kansas, on
April 21 and the Drake relays in
Des Moines on April 27-28.
Oregon vs. Oregon State in the
annual relays at Corvallis is the
next northern division meet sched
uled. It is to be held ApfU 28,
The next week Washington will
meet its first northwest competi
tion in Oregon State at Seattle.

of the positions. According to the
speakers, the field in each type of
work has enlarged during recent
years until it includes a wide va
riety of jobs.
Miss Frankie Coykendall em
phasized the fact that the adver
tising and newspaper business of
fers many positions other than
writing and selling. She described
the positions open to women and
the knowledge necessary for them
in the different departments of
the advertising agency, the retail
advertisers, the radio, and the
Considering particularly the ad
vertising ag . ^y, she emphasized
the fact th^l copy writing is the
most difficult position to secure,
and that women new to the busi
ness should begin with some other
job, working into something dif
ferent. Some of the advertising
positions open, according to Miss
Coykendall, are connected with
art, accounting and stenographic
work, home economics, writing,
dramatics, and scientific knowl
edge. However, no matter in
what division a person is inter
ested, stated Miss Coykendall, ac

Miss Brownell Frazier, speaking
on women in art, discussed the im
portance of art and design in every
day living as well as in entering
a profession. She explained the
value of art education in private
life and in relation with the reg
ular college course.
Considering art from the pro
fessional standpoint, Miss Frazier
took up the opportunities in in
dustrial and commercial organiza
tions. Miss Frazier stated that in
almost all lines of work there are
positions which necessitate train
ing in art.
Speaking on women in educa
tion, Mrs. Alice Howard stated
that “Training is considered more
important than years of service,
although it takes both for the best
results. . . . Salaries will increase
as professional training increases.'’
Mrs. Howard gave the profes
sional training arid educational re
quirements, as well as the neces
sary personal characteristics, for
each of the four main types of
positions in the educational field:
classroom teachers, administra
tors, special teachers, and research
Men and women teachers, ac
cording to Mrs. Howard, are paid
on different wage scales, men
usually receiving a steadily higher
rate. Women, however, have equal
opportunities for advancement, if
they have had the educational re
quirements for higher jobs, and
have had experience in classroom

Attracts Interest
The University of Oregon’s in
tramural system has attracted
world - wide interest. Paul R.
Washke, director of intramural
sports, stated that he has received
constant inquiries from gymna
sium directors and graduates in
physical education in all parts of
the United States, Canada, and
even more distant countries. Re
cently he received a letter from
the Hungarian College of Physical
Education in Budapest.
Dr. Szukovathy, its director, had
read of the success of Oregon’s
intramural sports in the “Journal
of Health and Physical Education’’
and had written asking for the
little blue handbook of intramural
sports, well known to most Ore
