It was a leap of a lifetime, yet few people remember it today. At the time, it was compared to Jim Ryun's sub-four-minute mile--still a high school record--but now it is nearly forgotten, even among high school coaches. Thirty-one years ago, 17-year-old Jerry Proctor of Pasadena Muir High had a long jump of 25 feet 10 1/2 inches at the L.A. Invitational indoor track meet. The clamor over Proctor's leap was justified.

Twenty-two years ago, Jerry Proctor of Pasadena Muir High School became the first high school long jumper to leap more than 26 feet, setting the national prep indoor record at 26-2 and the national outdoor record at 26-0 3/4. Last winter, Dion Bentley of Pittsburgh's Penn Hills shattered Proctor's indoor record with a leap of 26-6 1/2. Tonight at the Arcadia Invitational, Bentley will be taking aim at one of the most durable outdoor high school records in the books--Carl Lewis' 26-8 1/4.

In the increasingly crowded classrooms on this weathered Army post, soldiers who have served as medics, mechanics and even Marines are taking crash courses in how to interrogate prisoners. A nearby field recently cleared of desert brush and rattlesnakes is now lined with dozens of metal shipping containers converted into practice interrogation booths.
