Susie Wilson, one of 73 badminton players from Port Angeles, Wash. who entered the junior nationals in Seattle, won the girls' 13-and-under class by beating teammate Judy Brodhun, while another teammate, Tyna Barinaga, 15, took the 18-and-under singles title.

T. J. (Pat) Patterson, 59, a Waco, Texas rancher, returned to competitive shooting after seven years, quickly found the bull's-eye again to win the Southwestern Smallbore Rifle meet in Dallas with a grand aggregate score of 3,181 points out of a possible 3,200.

Jilann Brunett, Michigan Tech's girl sharpshooter, fired the best score during the season's meets, averaging 291.5 points out of a possible perfect mark of 300—and was rewarded by her male teammates by being voted captain of the varsity squad.

Buddy Edelen, former U.S. 10,000-meter champion who is now training in England, became the first American to win an English AAA long-distance title in 75 years when he took the 10-mile race in London in 48:31.8, a record for an American at that distance.

Susan Pol, a 24-year-old secretary from Berkeley, Calif., parachuted from almost four miles above Tracy, Calif. to break by more than a mile a women's world record (13,681.1 feet), but her barograph failed, making official recognition of her mark questionable.

William Harlow, 168-pound senior at St. Andrew's (Tenn.) School, who started wrestling as a 95-pound schoolboy, was named best wrestler of independent prep schools. He lost only one match in 80, taking a mid-southern title for his weight class each year.
