LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 33, 190s.
U. S. C. COACH CORRECTS
POMONA HAS ONE CHAMPION
Athletic Authority Delve* Into the
Past and Discovers New Record*.
U. 8. C. Has Majority of
The recent discussion In connection
with the athletic records of Southern
California has aroused considerable In
terest among the followers of the sport
and yet It appears that there are still
several points which are not quite clear.
I have carefully examined all the rec
ords as far back as 1891 and present the
foilowlng as the intercollegiate track
record* of Southern California. ';■.'•' , ;
It should be understood that these
results are not thrust upon the public
in a dogmatic fashion and If anyone
can present evidence, backed by re
liable Information, showing wherein
these records are Incorrect it will be to
the best Interests of amateur sports In
this section of the state,
No attempt Is made here to record the
fastest time made by Southern Califor
nia men but J every record given is
authentic and' stands as the,lntercol
legiate record of Southern California.
It may be well to state, In beginning,
that a Southern California Intercol
legiate record can be made only when
two or more of the four southern col
leges compete with one another.
A record made In a meet with Stan
ford or Berkeley would be fa state
record and one made In a meet with
the universities of Washington or Ore
gon would be an Interstate or coast
The record of ten seconds for the 100
yard dash of Southern California Is held
by Parsons of U. S. C, who made even
time* nKniiiFt a slight wind. Parson*
also hold* the 220-yard record of 22 1-5
seconds, both of these being made on
the University of Southern California
The 440-yard record of S3 second* flat
Is held by Harry Danp, who made thl*
time In 1898 while attending Occidental.
The $80 In 2:o*. the mile In 4:48 2-6 and
the two-mile In 10:S2 2-8 belong* to Roth
of Occidental, the 880 and the mile rec
ord being established In 1905 and the
mile In l!>04.
The 120-yard hurdles go to Hagerman
In 18 2-B seconds, also the 220-yar J
jump* In 28 2-6. In the latter event El*
llott of TJ. S. C. equaled Hagerman's
mark In the la«t meet with St. Vincent'
college. On March 6 Higerman ran the
low hurdle* In 27 2-S but did not leave
all the jumps standing, hence no record
Both the weight record* are possessed
by Guelbersen, made while attending
U. S. C. Cluelbersen put. the shot 42 feet
3 Inches and tossed the hammer 14S feet
6 Inches In a regular Intercollegiate
The pole vault at 10 feet 8% Inches
goes to Wllholt of St. Vincent*. Whar
ton of Pomona holds the Southern Call-,
fornla high Jump record at 5 feet 9
Inches, having cleared this height April
30, 1898. The fastest time of 8:36:15
for the relay race, established by' the
U. S. C. team this year, now stands as
the Southern California record.
Hendrlckson of Pomona has been
credited with faster time -than 53 sec
onds In the 440, but' l have conversed
with men Who helped measure the
course and they are authority for the
statement that both the Occidental and
Agricultural park tracks were short.
Of course no one In athletics consid
ered the record published In an even-
Ing newspaper a few weeks ago In a
serious light, but' rather as a huge
Joke, knowing very well that the com
piler would not desire them taken other
than In Jest. When Duffy and Shlck
ran the 100 In 9 3-5 Duffy won,, and al
though Shirk was less than one-flfth of
a second behind he did not get a record.
Likewise Brown of Pomona or anyone
else not winning an event cannot se
cure a record. Vorhees" two-mile run
In 10:22 Is a coast and state record, but
cannot be considered an a southern
Intercollegiate record for the simple
reason that It was made In a meet with
Stanford— a northern college. i ;---'■

IT. S. C. Is therefore shown to have
records In the 100* 220, shot, hammer
and mile relay; to Occidental both hur
dles, broad Jump, 440, 880, mile and
two mile. St. Vincent's has pole vault
laurels and Pomona the high Jump.
The greatest obstacle In the way of
getting authentic records has been that
those controlling the meets have per
mitted the distances to be short, one
hurdle race this year being about five
yards lesn than the required distance.
Henceforth, with the coaches working
harmoniously together, the keeplntr of
records should be a simple matter.
