  June 6, 1961, Day in Sports.

June 6, 1961: Track and field is still a wholesome LIVING sport, not bound down to tradition like, say, baseball. A trophy for everything and everything for a trophy. I don't know whether you know it or not, but Olympic events are the least standardized of any in the whole fabric of sports. Today it can be high-jumping or hop-step-and-jumping. Tomorrow, it could just as well be pushing a peanut on your nose around a circular course over two jumps and a water hole.
