FACES IN THE CROWD

April 08, 1963

Jane Ford, a stockbroker from Beverly Hills, became one of the few American women to break the sound barrier (the first: Jacqueline Cochran) when she flew a Northrop T-38 Talon up to 835 mph. Jane's cool copilot :Col. Charles Yeager, first to go through the barrier.

David Morgan, a quick-shifting driver from Tulsa, drove 13 hours at Sebring. He won the one-hour Formula Junior race in his rear-engined Lotus Ford, switched to a Sting Ray for the 12-hour race, was the second American, the first Corvette, to finish.

Phil Manuel, a 17-year-old vaulter from Kansas City, Mo. was stubbornly persistent when he broke the national indoor interscholastic record twice, only to find both marks disallowed, finally vaulted a legal 13 feet 8¼ for a belated well-deserved national record.

Arthur Ashe, a slender 19, and still a few pounds short of the weight needed for complete tennis excellence, showed himself a comer by beating third-ranked Ham Richardson; then proved it by winning the Southern California intercollegiate singles championships.

Mrs. John A. Justice, 30-year-old Los Angeles housewife and secretary, took up trap-shooting a year ago, won the Virginia City Handicap the hard way in wind and rain with a tic and a shootoff, hit 25 out of 25 against Richard Lane, happily went back to her desk.

Bela Szentivanyi, 26, won the sabre title at the NCAA fencing championships with the best win-loss score of the meet, 20-1. Bela fled Hungary during the uprising in 1956, now fences and studies advertising design at Detroit's Wayne State University.
