"CAP" SIIELTON GETS just a
little bit starry-eyed when a Ho-
ward Payne College track team
turns in a time which he considers
"impossible." Ho was in just such
a state a couple of weeks ago at
the North Texas Relays in Denton
whore his crack two-mile relay
team turned in a dazzling 7:33.3
for second place to North Texas'
mighty 7:31.0 clocking.
Only three schools all univer-
sitieshad dipped under the 7:33
mark before the event this year
and the flying Eagles' time was
the fastest anywhere in the nation
It was the first time in the his-
tory of Howard Payne that a Yel-
low Jacket team dipped under a
"If anyone bad told me we wore
going to run such a time before
the race I would have thought
they were crazy" "Cap" bluntly
blurted. "Two of these kids are
freshmen they're just not sup-
posed to turn in times like that."
THE SEASONED cinder boss
changed bis mind here Saturday
night in the high school Rluebon-
net Relays when Abileno's Larry
Rhodes turned on the steam for a
1:52.9 SSO-yard run clocking.
"I'm convinced that all of our
SSO men can break l:.ri(i after seeing
that" was- the last tiling "Cap" said
early Wednesday morning before
pulling out for Lawrence Kansas.
THE RED FACES DEPART-
MENT: Papers all over the nation
Sunday rocked with the astonish-
ing news that Kansas Charley
Tidwell ran the 220 in 20.2 Saturday
in a great invitational meet at Abi-
lene. In the same race another
broke and still another tied the
world record of 20.6.
Only two clocks were on Tidwell
and three are required for sub-
mission as a world mark.
Only Fort Worth Star-Telegram
sportswritor Dick Moore raised a
question about the length of the
After the heated battlefield had
cooled considerably. Abilene Chris-
tian College cinder officials meas-
ured the track and to their chag-
rin found it to lie five feet two
inches too short.
A re-re-measurement might even
disclose another couple of feet
missing on a race like that hut
still all in all it was a great
meet at ACC Saturday.
