Jones took good care of four rec
ords during the evening's activity.
Both took one first place, but
rach was good for two new rec
ords. Vaulter Cooper shattered the
old Nebraska-Kansas State dual
record of 13 feet, 8Vfe inches early
in the evening. "Moose"' cleared
14 feet and then took aim alt he
till-time Nebraska indoor record,

the bar and established a new
mark of 14 feet 5?s inches. Cooper

rowly missed 14-9 on the third
Jones set his records in his spe
cialty, the half-mile. Hobe and
Dick Towers of K-State set a blis
tering pace for the first three laps
which saw Towers leading most
of the way.
Around the last turn it was too
much for the Wildcat and he
faded badly as Jones roared on
to win in 1:57.3.
This was 1.1 seconds better
than the old dual mark set bv
Kopf of Nebraska in 1947. What
was even better wras that it
eclipsed the all-time Nebraska
