AT RELAY MEET
MEMORIAL STADIUM. Law
rence, Kan., April 23. (AP)
Defying a chilling wind that
cramped muscles and kept crov.d
shivering, university, college and
high school athle.es displayed a
remarkable exhibition of record
breaking performance at the fifth
annual University of Kansas re
lays here today.
A world's rtcorl was equaled
and four meet records broken.
A quartet of Notre Dame sprint
ers, in the quarter mile re-ls
Riley, Elder, Reillv and Dellamar
ia, equaled the world's record of
41.6 seconds set up by the New
York Athletic club iu 1925.
A new world's record in the
half mile university relay was dis
allowed when the University o
Kansas team of sprinters was dis
qualified. The'batou was dropped
on the pass between Cooper and
Grady, running third and fourth,
and picked up by Cooper instead
of Grady, as the rules provide.
The five year fight between Illi
nois and the Oregon Aggies for the
Rowland cup in the four mile uni
versity relay was ended .today
when the Illinois quartet of milers
led all the way to win in 18 min
utes 8.5 seconds. The Illini run
ners, Fairfield, McElwee, Sitting
and Rue, never were pressed ser
iously by their opponents.
The Oregon Aggies and Okla
homa staged a hard battle for sec
ond, the Aggies getting the place
in a last minute spurt at the fin
ish after Oklahoma had forged
into second place in the last lap.
The Oklahoma and 'Oregon run
ners closed to ten yards a fifty
yard lead held by Illinois at the
start of the last mile.
Illinois and the Oregon Aggiea
each had won two legs of the Row
land cup in previous meets. Three
victories were necessary to ga'i
permanent .possession of it.
NEW YORK, April 23. (AP)
Back from a vacation of several
weeks in Florida, Tex -Richard
today lost no time starling to un
ravel the tangled skeins of his
heavyweight program, upset dur
ing his absence by lawsuits and
boxing commission edicts. '
The promoter indicated his
first move probably will involve
efforts to match Jack Dempsey
'with Paulino Uzcudun for the
first comeback test of the former
heavyweight champion. He did
not commit himself definitely to
this plan, because he has not yet
received conclusive word that
Dempsey intends to return to the
ring, but he discussed the possi
bility with enthusiasm.
While shaping plans for a sec
ond heavyweight "semi-final"
Rickard expects to have no diffi
culty clearing away legal obsta
cles to his firs't big outdoor heavy
weight showing, featuring Jimmy
Maloney and Jack Sharkey on
May 19 at the stadium.
