these faces in the crowd...

Stanislav Jungwirth, 26, Czech runner with ungainly gait, broke world 1,500-meter record by over two seconds near Prague, covering metric mile in 3:38.1, equivalent of 3:55 mile. Only day before, Finns Olavi Salsola, Olavi Salonen and Olavi Vourisalo had bettered old mark at Turku, Finland.

Nancy McNamara, Herb Score's high school sweetheart, was married to Cleveland's fireballing left-hander at St. Mark's Catholic Church, Boynton Beach, Fla. Score, sidelined since May 8 after he was struck in the eye by batted ball, planned to be back in uniform and working out next week.

John Musser, 28, St. Joseph, Mo. switchman, water-skied 715 miles in 23 hours 23 minutes, alternately towed by three boats around Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks, claimed world distance mark. He received new line from assisting skier every 27 miles until storm-tossed water forced him ashore.
