i . I r ■ E a e 2 I t r s I a n t s e AAU Refuses Gehrmanns Request for Date Switch, MILWAUKEE, Wis., June 14 UP .—Ace miler Don Gehrmann said today the AAU has turned down his request that the half-mile and the mile be run on different days at the AAUS national track meet. Gehrmann said he still will run in both events. The two events are scheduled for June 21, the final day of the two-day meet at Long Beach, Calif. Gehrmann said he thought he would have a better chance if he didnt have to run them both on the same day. Gehrmann said he received a letter from Lloyd Olds, chairman of the AAU track and field committee, saying that only a majority of all the members of the national AAU committee could change the schedule and a full committee meeting is not scheduled until next October.
