Suit Filed to Prevent Santee From Racing

Wes Santee may not be allowed to run in the Columbian mile tonight in New York as the AAU filed to have the injunction reinstating him suspended.

Even if the injunction is not suspended the race may be called off because of AAU disapproval. Many runners are unwilling to compete with Santee after an earlier AAU warning. Though the court has granted protection to those who run against Santee, some were still hesitant last night to compete.

Santee is fighting the ban on the grounds that the national executive committee lacked power to suspend him.
