CRACK KANSAS ATHLETE
Clyde A. Blair, of Fort Scott,
Wins Laurels as a Sprinter.
Clyde A. Blair, the star- freshman
sprinter of the University of Chicago
track team, who has' equaled , the
world's amateur record for 100 yards
in 9 4-5 seconds, is a Kansas boy who
was born near Fort Scott.
It was half a dozen years ago' or so
that Blair won his first race. He was
a student in the Fort Scott high school.
He had been known as a boy who could
run pretty fast when he was in the
graded schools. He had no ideas about
sprinting, and had never seen spiked
running shoes. What was more, he
used to run clad in his every-day
trousers, with perhaps a belt on. When
the runners from Girard and Joplin high
schools went to Fort Scott to meet the
local runners there, Blair was selected
to represent the high school in the 100
yard dash. The sprinters from out of
town wore running suits and spiked
running shoes. Blair ran in his bare
feet. He bad never seen such shoes be
fore. He ran better than the spike-
shod runners and was first over the
tape in 11 2-5 seconds. That was the
first time young Blair was looked upon
as a sprinter. The next year when the
high school teams from Girard, Joplin
and Fort Scott met Blair was clad in a
racing suit and shod with spikes. He
easily won the 100 yard dash and the
furlong races. In the league composed
of Joplin, Pittsburg, Girard and Fort
Scott Blair won the medal as the best
At Kansas City" in 1901 Blair won the
hundred and the furlong dashes. He
was credited with 10 seconds in ' the
hundred yards but he doubted the cor
rectness of the time. The watch may
have run a little slow. Blair went to
the University of Chicago a year ago. A
A. Stagg, the athletic director, at once
picked Blair as a coming sprinter. Stagg
saw some of his work on the track. In
a try out meet . to see who were the
most promising athletes, Blair won the
100 yard dash in 10 1-5. After that in
an indoor try out meet he won the 30
yard dash, equalling the gymnasium
record. Several times during the winter
he won the 35 yard dash with the run
ners from other universities. In the A.
A. U. meet March 1, at Milwaukee, be
won the 75 yard dash.
Then Stagg took Blair in training for
the Philadelphia meet where Blair was
to meet the great Duffy, who holds the
world's record of 9 4-5 seconds for 100
yards. Blair's first defeats came at the
hands of Duffy. On Franklin field, Phil
adelphia, on April 26 Blair was pitted
against Duffy. Twice Duffy went over

time for each dash was 9 4-5. These

been ahead when crossing the tape. He
forced the great Duffy, however, to
equal the world's record twice in sue
cession. Duffy had never done that be
fore and he said that Blair was the first
man that ever beat him up to the 60
yard mark. . '- ,
When Duffy crossed the tape in these
two races he was barely six inches
ahead of Blair. On May 9 when the Un
iversity of Chicago track team defeated
the track team from Northwestern uni
versity at Chicago by the score of 77 to
35, Blair equalled the world's record.

yards was 10 seconds but Ave watches

One of Blair's best performances was

sprinter who had defeated every one on
the Pacific, coapt and had run against
the sprinters from Yale and Princeton.
The official time was given as 10 sec
onds but two of the three watches held
on the dash gave the time as 9 4-5 sec
onds. .Blair then ran the 220 yards in
22 seconds on a curved track defeating
Cadogan. Then Blair carried off the
quarter mile run.
Blair is 20 years old, and It Is ex
pected that he will cut off the one-fifth
