April 19, 1938 Tuesday

P.P.W.T.S. Went to track in p.m. with Nareau. In evening went to all-color picture “Tom Sawyer.”
There was a freshman named Ed Wheeler whom Coach had heard could run. He asked Nareau and me to get him to come out. We asked, encouraged him but this a.m. he told me that he was not well and was going to have his appendix out and could not enter track. I told him to come out when he had had it. He evidently changed his mind because he came out this afternoon—overworked and had a convulsion during a ¼ mile and died after he got to the hospital. It’s all over town.
