- Photographs of different track events at the same meet appear with the captions, "The Start of a Major Upset Picture shows Sam Klopstock, figure in white, hitting the first hurdle in yesterday's high hurdle race at the Coliseum. Bob Lyon, No. 22, went on to win for the Trojans, Klopstock taking second. Clarence Berry, third, is No. 11, while Gene Culp, No. 5, finished under orders a couple of minutes after the race had ended. He hit a hurdle and ran thereafter with only one shoe one [sic]. The time of 14.7s. tied the meet record and the result, due to Klopstock's miscalculation, was a surprise.

McFadden had to fight his way into the event, his name not even appearing on the original entry list although he had the best competitive mark of the S.C. jumpers. Crawford and Olson of the Trojans made it a clean sweep by taking the other two places. [Times photo by Fred Coffey]," Los Angeles Times, 06 May 1934: D3
