The black races are superior in
a number of sports, among them
h inting, sprinting and middle dis
tance running, but are poor in the
s lotput and long distance ruuning.
Cr. Jokl said. The reason for this.
Or. Jokl believes, is that Negroes
can derive less body heat and more
r echanical energy from a given
amount of energy than whites.
This was proven with extensive
tests given to black ami white
sharecroppers in Missouri, Dr. Juki
Dr. Jokl reported he took the six
finalists in each Olympic game for
the last five or six years in the
track and field events and has
found that Negroes have contrib

by the United States. ‘T consider
this amazing because the blacks

not allowed to compete for posi

"Athletes are fed by surplus

of some nations over others in
sports. He believes this explains
