Varsity Track
Hopes Raised
ByWes.Allen
By HERB LEV
Michigan's track team, indoor and
outdoor champions of the Western
Conference, will get some unlooked
for assistance next spring in seeking
to regain the titles.
For, although Michigan has con-
tinually occupied a top rung in the
track ladder, it has been two years,
since they have been able to garner
a single point, in the high jump.
Wes Allen, colored sophomore from
Cleveland, is the newcomer upon
whom Coach Charley Hoyt is de-
pending to regain lost laurels in an
event, which the Wolverines have
been decidedly weak since the grad-
uation of Willis Ward.
Last fall as a freshman, Allen first
broke into the limelight with a six-
foot-four inch leap, which broke all
existing freshman records, and would
have been good for a third place in
either Conference meet.
Allen missed the whole outdoor
season last spring, financial diffi-
culties forcing him to leave school in
February, but now he is back for
another fling at the records.
Indications are that the six-foot-
four leap was far from Wes's peak.
As a senior in high school he set al

"No, I can't say that there was,"
came the non-committal reply.
"Didn't you ever score the win-

Didn't Do Nothing
"Well, I did the last game of the
season. We beat East Fairmont 1,9
to 0."
"How were the touchdowns made?"
We queried again.
"Oh, one was through tackle."
"That was thet one you made?"
"Well, I made all three of 'em."
"All just short plunges then."
"Well, the first one was for 70
yards."
And slowly we find that Mrs. Ren-
new Ohio interscholastic record with
a jump of six-foot-five. This mark
looks all the more formidable, con-
sidering the fact that Mel Walker,
holder of the world's high jump rec-
ord, is a product of an Ohio high
school, as are Ed Burke of Marquette,
and Dave Albritton, Walker's team-
mate at Ohio State, both of whom
have exceeded six-nine.
Allen is also a capable broad-
jumper, approaching 23 feet on sev-
eral occasions, and together with
the other versatile colored star, Bill
Watson, is expected to be one of the
leading point gatherers for the Hoyt-
men.
In high school Wes distinguished
himself on the basketball court, al-
most as much as on the cinderpath,
gaining a forward berth on the All-
city five, but has decided to confine
his efforts here to track.
