William Hopkins, University of Vir
ginia freshman, was the only athlete
to win two events and in both he
swept to new records. He streaked
his way to victory in the 100 and 200
meter dashes—the former In 10.6
and the latter In 21.4. In both
events he lowered marks set by Earl

1 easily over George Bogan of
Georgetown, but the latter came
within a foot of nipping him at the
finish in the 200-meter, which was
negotiated within two-tenths of a
second of the Olympic standard, held
by Eddie Tolan.
Another Olympic mark threatened
Was that in the broad jump. Mon
cure Little, formerly of William and
Mary, competing unattached, leaped
24 feet 11 inches, within 5% inches
of the Olympic record held by Edward
Hamm and 2 feet 6’2 inches better
than the D. C. A. A. U. mark of 22
feet 4li inches held by Beers, for
merly of Maryland.
Ivan Mothershead, Virginia Tech
senior, was another outstanding per
former. He scored an upset when he
conquered Coleman Headley, Mary
land ace. in the 1,500-meter run,
withstanding a stout challege by the
Old Liner in the closing stages.
Headley, who triumphed over Mother
shead recently, was well back until
the late going. Lieut. R. M. Bauer,
U. s. A., set the pace for the first
three laps. The race W'as run in
4:00.3, a new record. It was 13 7-10
seconds better than the former stand
ard of 4:14.0 held by McDonald of
Ileadlry Comes Bark.
Headley, however, chalked up a vic
tory in the 800-meter rim when he
bettered his own record of 1:58.8 by
eix-tenths of a second.
In the 110-meter high hurdles,
James Rogers of Washington and Lee
clipped four-tenths of a second off
the meet record, held by Everett of
Virginia. Rogers stepped the distance
Bill Lumpkin of the University of
Richmond turned in a notable per
formance in capturing the 5,000-meter
run in the record-breaking time of
16:05.0. This compared with the old
mark of 16:56.6 held by Sholtes of the
Washington Track and Field Club.
Lumpkin and John Leiss of the
vTa.Muui<,iwn littuv ana rueia ijiuo
were the leaders virtually all the way,
with Leiss faltering in the final stages.
In the javelin throw, BUI Guckeyson
of Maryland, although he has given
little time to track this Spring, hurled
the spear 204 feet 31* inches to break
his own record of 196 feet 0% Inches.
Ed Hahnfeldt of Bullis Prep School
of Washington was another to hang
up a new mark. He heaved the discus
139 reet 7 inches in winning that
event. The former record of 132 feet

OLD LIK GAIN
Conquer Penn State, 9 to 2,
to Keep Slate Clean in
STATE COLLEGE, Pa., May 30.—
After bolding the University of
Maryland's high-powered la
crosse team to four goals In the
first three periods, Penn State weak
ened in the final quarter and lost to
the Southerners, 9 to 2.
The visitors’ victory over the Lions
today gave them an undefeated record
against college teams in this season
and unquestionably stamps Maryland
as the best college 10 in the country.
Playing a close-guarding defensive
game in the first half, State held their
opponents in check and Maryland led
by only 2 to 1 when the half ended.
John Christilf's two goals, one after
three minutes of play in the first
period, and the other after the same
time in the second quarter, were the
only shots which went into the net.
Two substitutes, Cohen and Eddie,
made Penn State's markers, one in the
second and one in the last quarter.
The Lions stopped 18 well-aimed shots.
Woody Douthett, State's cover point,
held Charlie Ellinger, Maryland’s Ail
America, to a single tally.

BALTIMORE. May 30—Selec

the possible exception of foot
ball, presents geographical difficulties
to free State sporls writers.
This is especially true with respect
to base ball. Maryland's college towns
are widely scattered, and. with as
many as five teams in action often
on the same day, efforts to keep up
with the lengthy day-to-day would
be a hair-graying and impossible task.

Betters Lead Steadily.
XT HAPPENED to McMahon, for
A there the Worcester lad with the
Irish name got his second wind. "I
felt as if I could finish like a sprinter
from that point on,” he said. "I don’t
know how to describe it.” Steadily,
slowly, he pulled away from Kelley,
who fell yards behind the relentless
spurt of the flying McMahon.
Threading his way through traffic,
convoyed by a policeman on a motor
cycle. McMahon ran down historic
old Pennsylvania avenue, and turned
south into the Ellipse, around which
he must go to the finish line at the
’’Where's Kelley?" he gasped, as
he turned his head back when half
way around the Ellipse. Kelley was
200 yards back, unable to catch the
flying heels of MdMahon. “He's well
behind,” the park cop answered. Mc
Mahon dug his rubber-shod feet in
for the final dash. Facing the roped
olT lane of 150 yards down to the
tape McMahon put on a new burst
of speed. He literally flew across
that line, breaking the tape standing
up like a sprinter who has just run

"Let me carry you into the tent.”
said Harry Fiddesop, the trainer who
hu officiated at the finish of five
marathon championships. "Nope.
I'm all right." McMahon gasped. "I
can walk fine." And walk he did,
right into the tent, where he lay
down for a bit before facing the
microphone and the presentation of
the championship award.
Another Steak for Bill.
A LMOST as fresh was Kelley, the
man who had run neck and neck
with the winner fo r7 miles and
then, worn down by the pace, fell
back to watch a better man win the
race. Kelley spurted across the finish
line and joined McMahon on a cot
where they lay side by side. "Fine
work, Bill," said Kelley, '"fhanks,"
said McMahon. “Tough luck for
Then they put McMahon in an
automobile, whisked him to the Y.
M. C. A., where the milk-shake
drinking episode took place and
rushed him across town at a 60-mile
gait to the home of Bernard Cassell
in Chevy Chase, where he smacked
his lips in anticipation of another
of those two-inch steaks.
"I felt I'd win about 2 miles
from the finish," he said,” just after
we left the bottom of Capitol Hill on
the return journey."
He knew his Washington, for he j
displayed complete familiarity with all
the twists and turns of the course.
Aside from the record-breaking
phase of the race, the fifth annual
marathon probably was the best ever
staged by the A. A. U. and The Star
here. It's any one's guess as to how
many people saw the race, but a holi
day crowd of 100,000 or more must
have seen the lads in shorts from
the time they started at Mount Ver
non until they finished at the Ellipse.
This marathon business is compar
atively new stuff to Washingtonians,
but they like it, if you could judge by f
the thousands of persons who held
printed programs of the starters in
their hands and checked off their
numbers as they passed.

T ONG after dark had drawn Its
wings over the elms around tha
Ellipse they continued to run and
I stagger across the finish line, whlla
a silvery moon appeared in the East
ern sky. i
First of the Washington entrants to
finish among the 85 starters and 58
finishers was Dr. B. G. Chitwood of
j the Washington Track and Field Club,
in twenty-sixth position. He ran the
race in 3 hours 18 minutes and 21 sec
onds, thus winning the local marathon
title. Louis Mitchell of the Business
Men's Association, was the second local
man to cross the finish line, In twenty
eighth place, nearly nine minutes back
The team championship award was
held up by the District A. A. U. r
pending the outcome of a protest on
the eligibility of William Steiner, reg*
istered from the Millrose A. C. of New
