England's Donald Campbell, holder of the world speed record on water (226 mph), will try for another one on wheels. In a car with a British gas-turbine engine, he hopes to better 400 mph. Present record: 394. Campbell will make attempt in Utah, expects a big problem will be keeping car from taking off like a plane.

International ski authorities, approving Squaw Valley, Calif. for 1960 Winter Olympics, called for two adjustments: 1) advising athletes to come early and adapt to thin air because site is about 1,000 feet higher than Olympic maximum; 2) shortening downhill run to eliminate easy slope at bottom. Both measures have precedents in earlier Games: a shortened run at Oslo, extra altitude at St. Moritz.
