Keeping track!

The British Empire and Commonwealth games were held in Perth , Western Australia, Australia from November 22 - December 1st, 1962. World renowned Australian runner Herb Elliot was to report on these games.

The Newspaper insert actually reads:

"Former Olympic giant Herb Elliot holder of  
the world's 1500 metres record and one of the greatest distance  
runners amateur athletics has known is to comment on The Empire  
Games  exclusively for "The Mercury" in Tasmania.'

Note: this cartoon was done prior to Geoff introducing his trademark "hook" and was published on the editorial page of 'The Mercury" Hobart, Tasmania.
