and iturin.. rflriw ;?> >?? ?
Voyles piled up a total score of
426 points in the five field events

chance of winning: the gold medal
for the man scoring1 the highest
number of points in the country.
His fine record included 10 feet
inch in the standing broad jump;
46 seconds the potato race; 46
push-ups; 5 feet 1V? inches in the
running high jump; and 36 feet 8

been transferred from the Submarine
Base, led all other units for the
ten highest men in each event,
Voyles was among the first three In
