Sports: Track Meet Drake relays at Des Moines are highlighted by a series of thriller-diller track contests. 11 meet records are shattered with a spectacular performances by Olympic sprint star Bobby Morrow, Wilt 'The Stilt' Chamberlain of basketball fame, and many other sports stars. Low angle view of crowd in college bleachers. High angle men's hurdles from start to finish; CU winner, Willie Stevens (SP?). 100-yard dash, Bobby Morrow wins. High jumpers include Don Stewart (SP?) and Wilt Chamberlain, who jumps while wearing a hat! (The hat is plaid and looks like a hat golfers would wear.) VO says Chamberlain tied the mark and won a coin toss to win. Wilt poses and shakes hands with another athlete, possibly Stewart. Very close finish in the mile race; the second-place man offers a sportsmanlike handshake to the winner, Hungarian Laszlo Tabori.
