William J. Bingham '16, Director of Athletics, will try his lucky charm once again this year to aid the trackmen competing in the Invitation Meet to be held at Princeton in the near future. Bingham will once more officiate at the meet and expressed the hope yesterday that he could keep his slate clean as far as broken records are concerned.
In the two previous appearances of Bingham as an official in the Palmer Stadium, world's records have been set by the athletes. The first occasion was the record-smashing mile of Jack Lovelock, British miler, in the Oxford-Cambridge meet held in 1933. Lovelock's time was 4 min. 6 7-10 sec.
The second record breaking performance in the presence of Bingham was the work of Glenn Cunningham, Kansas middle distance star, who established a new mark for the 1500 meter route.
