To Go Or Not To Go...
the 1940 Olympics may find their
ambitions somewhat thwarted by the
latest decision of the International
Olympic Committee. Without solici-
tude for the American team, which
consists largely of undergraduates,
the nabobs moved the date of the
Tokyo athletic carnival forward al-
most a. month-a move that conflicts
with the Fall semester. Now, a col-
lege man must forego that period of
his schooling if he wishes to compete
in the games.

Of course, the American may
decide to hasten his return to
these shores, enroll in his favorite
university and struggle to make
up accumulated assignments. But
n view of the fact that the games
and Oct. 6, and it must take fully
a month, if not considerably
longer, to travel the ordinary
i outes between the United States
and Japan, the undergraduate,
it seems to us, must elect either
to, participate in the Olympics
and remain out of school the Fall
semester, or to cling to his aca-
demic pursuits and vicariously
enjoy in his classroom siestas the
jolly soirees of Nippon.
A trip to Japan will probably offer
much in an educational way-maybe
a lesson or two in the fine edges of
a militarist's craft. The office cynic
suggests that maybe by 1940 Japan
will be floating somewhere about in
the Pacific, disgorged ty a belching
ocean. That isn't a happy thought,
and with Spring and itsiattendant
optimism close upon us, it's one we
can't harbor right now. For imme-

Michigan's undefeated track team
will be without the services of ace
high jumper, Wes Allen, when they go
after their fifth consecutive Butler
Relays title at Indianapolis Satur-
day, it was disclosed yesterday.
A slight sore throat, contracted at
the Big Ten indoor meet at Chicago,
where he placed second behind Dave '
Albritton of O.S.U.. had developed in-
to strepticocci infection after keep-
ing him in bed since Monday.
Out For Another Week
Doctors in charge of Allen's case
said his condition, while not serious,
would necessitate hospitalization for
at least another week.
The Negro sophomore star h/ed
twice tied his veteran colored rival
and fellow townsman from Cleveland
previous to their third meeting at
the Conference indoor meet.
Allen slipped to second only when
Albritton, co-holder of the world's
record at 6 feet 10 3 /4, came through
with a leap of 6 feet 6 1/4 inches to
set a new Big Ten indoor record.
Wolverines Are Favorites
Despite the loss of their best high
1 umper the Wolverines are still odds
on choices to make it five straight
at the rich Butler Relays.
Aside from Allen the Hoytmen will
flash the same balanced strength that
annexed their fifth straight Big Ten
indoor crown and swept the deck at
the Illinois Relays.
Charlie Hoyt was again grooming
his crack distance medley foursome of,
Davidson, Schwarzkopf, Faulkner and
Jester for another shot at Indiana,
who nosed them out at Illinois two
