   Port Arthur News (Newspaper) - January 27, 1973, Port Arthur, Texas                               Smith sets new pole vault mark Predicts 18-8 jump before end of season NEW YORK (AP) How -ugh Js up for Steve Smith, the first pole vauJter to clear 18 feet indoors? "I will do 18-8 before the end of the indoor predicted the 21-year-old Long Beach State student after clearing 18- at the Wanamaker MHlrose Games Friday night. Prior to his record-smashing jump, the ebullient Smith had said he eventually would break the 19-foot barrier outdoors, Where the world mark is held by his 197 Olympic team- mate, Bob Seagren. Smith, Seagren and Jan John- son, the three American entries in the Munich Olympics, all failed to clear 16 feet in the Games after a last-minute rul- ing prevented them from using the new fiberglass model pole that had carried them to 18-foot jumps in the U.S. Trials at Eu- gene, Ore. "That whole mess about ille- gal poles was something the pole vault gold medal and caused all the controversy about the fiberglass poles) is not the best pole vaulter in tlhe world. I am and I'm going to prove it. Banning the pole was ridiculous. I'm waiting for Mon- treal in 1976 and I'll show what a gold medal is really worth." The 184-pound flirit'h, who competes for the remembered Smith. "Wolfgang Saturday at Los Angeles.

"I wanted to be sure it was going to be an 18-footer." There was no doubt obout it being an 18-footer. Smith sped down the vaulting ramp, his confidence evident to all in the Madison Square Garden crowd of He planted his bar into the pit, and leaped over Beach, Calif., jumped only four times in the Mellrose Games. He didn't begin jumping until the bar reached 17 feet. He cleared that on his first jump. Nobody else passed that height, so Smith went for the meet record of 17-5. After miss- ing once, he surpassed gren's Mill rose mark of set five years ago. Then, he asked the bar to be raised to an inch and a quarter higher than the world indoor mark he had set last As the fans hailed his mag- nificent effort, Smith bounced off the mat, his hands raised high in triumph, and jogged around the track to huge cheers from the crowd. "This wasn't a good jump he said. "I have to get a stiffer pole. This one is too light, but it was working for me, so I figured I would stay with it. "When you plant that pole in the takeoff box, you can tell if it's going to be a good one. I was surprised when I cleared 17-5. There was plenty of room to spare at that height. That's why I decided to go for 18. Smith's performance, which earned the award as the meet's outstanding athlete, over- shadowed several other notable victories, including those by Kod Milburn and Herb Wash- ington. Milburn, the Olympic cham- pion who lost his first two starts this season but redeemed himself with a triumph in last week's NAIA meet, made it two in a row, taking the 60-yard beat a field that included 1968 Olympic champion Willie Da- venport, 1972 Olympic bronze medalist Tom Hill an.'J Loui- siana State University fresh- man Larry Shipp. Washington, the Big Ten Con- ference spring champion from Michigan State, swept to victo- ry over a powerful field in the 60-yard dash in 6.0 seconds. His opposition included defending champion Mel Pender, Dr. Do- lano Aleriwether, Olympic sil- ver medalist Robert Taylor and Olympian Hasley Crawford of Trinidad-Tobago. Millrose officials again were frustrated in their hopes of seeing the first sub-four minute mile in the meet's 66-year his- tory. Hendryk of Poland was declared the win ner after first-place finisher Bob Wheeler of Duke was dis- qualified for forcing the Pole to the outside on the final lap. Wheeler was timed in and the Pole in Other winners included: Grant McLaren of Toronto in the two-mile, Andrej Kupczyk of Poland in the Marrei Philippe of Fordham in the 880, Beaufort Brown of the Univer- sity of Florida in the 600, Al- fred Daley of Essex County. N.J. College in the 500, and Clau.de Ferrange of the Univer- sity of Montreal in the high jump. Casper leading Crosby PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.
