The two college sophomores on the cover threaten world sprint marks every time they crouch at the starting blocks. Bobby Morrow (right), the tanned 20-year-old from Abilene Christian, is a good bet to win at Melbourne, and Dave Sime, the Duke redhead, is such a mighty prospect that the U.S. Olympic Committee has shattered all precedent to give him an unusual second chance. For more on these two, see page six.
