Transcript7 Olympians Entered in Relays

No fewer than seven Olympic athletes, including Southern's Oscar Moore, will be in competition starting today in the 41st Kansas Relays
Also back for the event, one of the top track and field events of the year, will be five defending champs from a year ago.
Probably the best known of the Olympians is Jim Ryan of Kansas. The 18-year-old freshman is the American record holder in the mile with a clocking of 3:55.3, which is only about a second off the world record.
Moore, one of three other American Olympians entered, is one of the favorites in the 5.000-meter run.
The other two are Richard Stebbins of Grambling and Janell Smithof Emporia (Kan.) State. Stebbins has been clocked at 9.2 in the 100-yard dash, but he could draw stiff competition from Oklahoma's Jim Jackson, the defending champion. The 18-year-old Miss Smith is the American record holder in 440.
The other three Olympic performers are from Latin America or the Caribbean. Jamaican Lynn Headley of Nebraska is a sprinter. Texas Southern's Arnald Bristol is a hurdler and sprinter from Puerto Rico. Kentucky's Patricio Etcheverry of Chile throws the javelin. Etcheverry's best heave is 232 feet five inches.
Heading the list of defending champions is PhilMulkey. The 34 - year - old Birmingham, Ala., schoolteacher has been the decathlon champion seven times.
Other defending champs returning are Hylke VanDer Wal of Canada in the 3, 000-meter steeplechase, Missouri's Steve Herndon in the high jump, Lee Courkamp of Denver in the 10, 000 meters and Jim Jackson of C)klahoma in the 100-yard dash.
One of ' last year's championships was won by Southern's mile relay team, but the Salukis will be without Bill Cornell this year. The best time recorded this year by
the team of Robin Coventry, Ross MacKenzie, Jerry Fendrich and Gary Carr is 3:12.2, The Salukis won it a year ago with a time of 3:09.2.
Another probable winner for Southern is George Woods in the shot put. ,
Distance man Moore and John Vernon in the triple jump also stand good chances to win their events. Vernon's best jump of 50 feet, 5 1/2 inches is only an inch short of the meet record.
