Accompanying note: "Hayes Will Try for World Mark--Florida A & M University's rapid Robert Hayes, who unofficially tied the world mark for the 100-yard dash at 9.2 just a month ago at Miami, tunes up on the track here and will be gunning to lower the official 9.2 record held by Villanova's Frank Budd. Hayes, 19, and a sophomore, will be running Saturday, Mar. 17, on the same track at University of Miami, where he ran his 9.2 and officials there say the track will be even faster as the measured straightway has been groomed daily."
