TranscriptHe Looks Like a Foot ball Player Bob Green Aims at Hurdling Mark

Southern has one of the fastest hurdlers ever to
come along in it's history. His name is Bob Green
The 6-1, 20 - pound freshman from Washington D.C.
is touted by many as the "next Hayes Jones." Jones, of course, is one of the fastest hurdlers
in the world.
Green's fastest time in the high hurdles is 14.1, which he ran in the Englewood (N.J.) Memorial meet last year. He also won the Washington Evening Star championships, competing in the 70-
yard high hurdles. There he turned in a time of 8.5 setting an area record.
In the Washington City championships, Green set
another area record with a time of 14.2 in the
high hurdle event. Last year Bob came in second,
competing in the high hurdles, in the National Sir. AAU at Morgan St. College.
The muscular fresh man, who looks more like a football player than a runner, was ranked fifth
e nation last year by Scholastic Magazine.
Green was asked if be had any goals he would like
to achieve. "I'd like to bring my time down
to 13.9 and, if rm lucky, I'd like to go to the Texas Relays. I would also like to beat my good friend Hayes Jones, " he replied.
The big hurdler thinks t h a t Southern's chances at the St. John's Invitational in January and the Kentucky Invitational in February are good.
"We have the best sprint relay team in the country and Coach Lew Hartzog is the best in the world, " Green said with a smile.
The St. John's Invitational will be something of a "homecoming" for Bob. The meet will be held
in his hometown, Washington, D. in his hometown, Washington, DC.
