RECORD BREAKERS—HUGH ENTROP, 35-year-old swingshifter at Boeing, who spent endless hours building little speedboat with help of Partner-Mechanic Jack Leek, famed Seattle Hydro Genius Ted Jones and his son Ron, roared stubby little Mercury-powered, blue-finned RX-3 up and down glass-flat Lake Washington at average speed of 107.-821 mph (see page 28), fastest ever for outboard motorboat (June 7).
Fran Washington, muscular Winston-Salem Teachers' hurdler who usually plays second fiddle to Teammate Elias Gilbert, beat out own record-breaking rhythm in NAIA championships at San Diego, barreling over obstacles in 51.5 to set new U.S. college standard for 440-yard hurdles (June 7).
Yolanda Balas, limber-legged Rumanian lass, lithely flipped over bar at 5 feet 10 inches at Bucharest to regain world high jump mark (June 7).
Terry Gathercole, 23-year-old New South Welshman, spreading water furiously, breaststroked 100 meters and 110 yards in 1:13.5 at Townsville, hauled down two world records to bring Aussie total since last February to 38 (June 7).
BASEBALL—LOS ANGELES DODGERS, with Chavez Ravine referendum behind them (see page 22), showed their appreciation to voters, smacked down Milwaukee three straight to help slumping San Francisco Giants, who lost four out of six to Braves and Cincinnati, maintain slender one-game lead. But St. Louis and Redlegs were on move upward as Pittsburgh dipped all way to sixth place.
Mickey Mantle, back in power groove, sprayed seven homers all over Yankee Stadium against Chicago and Cleveland, almost made fans forget that Yankees lost Sunday double-header to Indians 14-1, 5-4. Boston became latest to threaten, won five in row from Indians and White Sox to climb within� game of second-place Kansas City.
TRACK & FIELD—-HERB ELLIOTT, rabbitfooted young Aussie, kept stride with early pace-setters, set out on his own at halfway mark, poured it on as Ron Delany faltered badly and pooped out, and Runner-up Laszlo Tabori dropped back at end, to win mile in 3:58.1 at Compton, Calif. Earlier, whalish Parry O'Brien lofted shot 62 feet 4� inches but was pushed by fabulous Dallas Long (see below) of North Phoenix ( Ariz.) H.S., who heaved 16-pound ball 61 feet� inch, best ever by schoolboy, and USC's Dave Davis, who unofficially bettered college record with 60 feet 5 inches.
Ray Norton, San Jose State swifty, was never swifter than at Sanger, Calif., where he took off like jet, sprinted 220 in 20 flat with aid of too gusty winds which negated claim for world record after losing to Oklahoma State's Orlando Hazley in 100 in 9.4.
Derek Ibbotson, gabby Briton who has unrecognized 3:57.2 mile to his credit, fought off Australia's Merv Lincoln in shoulder-to-shoulder stretch duel, broke tape in 4:05.4 on rain-slowed track in Centennial Games at Vancouver.
Bobby Morrow, ineligible for NCAA championships but with more than casual eye on AAU meet June 20-21 and trip to Moscow, anchored Abilene Christian's 440-yard relay team to 40.1 clocking, scurried through 100 in 9.4 and 220 in 20.4 at U. of Houston's Meet of Champions.
