"I plan to shoot for it later this week at Copenhagen,” Whit field said, “and maybe I’ll be able to break it.” He already has smashed five marks this year—including the 1,000-meter standard yesterday —and nothing would please him more than to win the Sullivan Award at the end of the year. “I’d certainly like to win it,” Whitfield said. “After all, no member of my race ever has won it before and I would consider it one of my greatest honors if I became the first colored ath lete to take it.” He was clocked in 2:20.8 for the 1,000 meters yesterday in finishing far ahead of Reggie Pearman of the New York Pio neer Club and Sweden’s Sune Brostroem, second and third, re spectively. The recognized world record for the distance is 2:21.3, set by THE EVENING STAR, Washington, D. C. MONDAY. AUGUST 17, 1953 Olle Aberg of Sweden last Oc tober. Stanislaw Jungwirth of Czechoslovakia claims to have run it in 2:21.2, but the record never has been submitted to the International Federation. “That was a wonderful feel ing,” he said, “but I think I could have run it even faster if I had more competition. Pear man set a good pace for the first lap, but then he fell back and I had to run the rest of the race by myself.” He added that from now on, he will concentrate on tha 400 meters and 1,500 meters. In the process of setting the 1.000-me ter record, Mai crossed the 400- meter mark in 49.9, just one tenth of a second off George Rhoden’s world mark. The listed 1,500-meter record is 3:43, held jointly by Sweden's Gunder Haegg and Lennart Strand. Whitfield’s world records now include the 500-yard indoor (56.6), 600-yard indoor (1:09.5), the 500-meter indoor (1:02.9), BRAKES Relined 4 Wheels Complete FINEST QUALITY LINING BUICK SPEC. tr. 0E PONTIAC-6 ■ M OLDSMOBILE-6 <s> AH ually Low I QUICK, EFFICIENT I FREE BRAKE Service by Experts ( ADJUSTMENTS Rivetless Bonded Linings Latest Pressure Bonded Lining Equipment Duplicate Police Testing Machine General brake service 903 N ST.
