          and I now know the other guy too... but since I cheated and researched to find it, I will not divulge it here. But Albritton was easy, especially after wsatch's hint. Thanks wsatch.

              dj, no one knows more than you ( I mean that ! ) but Walker's not the one I found. I think you are right on Walker; w/o looking it up I think he set an indoor WR in the HJ.

              I found Jack Keller of Ohio State setting WR in the HH, in about 1934... I am not at home so this is memory from looking it up last night. Positive on the Keller part and 90 % on the Jack part.

                  Jack Keller finished at OSU in '33, the same year Owens was getting out of HS.

                  Walker did have an indoor "WR" also an outdoor WR after Albritton. I'm pretty sure Walker was OSU '37, Albritton '36, Owens -37, but last there in '36.

                    thanks dj, good work and good info. And wsatch, it was the HH that Keller set the WR in, not the lH.

                      to clarify about Keller, it was definitely the High Hurdles in which he set a WR as opposed to the Low Hurdles. He may well have done that too, I have no idea, but it was the Highs in which he set the WR that I looked up last night.
