description:

This image scanned from the Cross Country & Track manager's book for 1930-1931. The caption reads, in full: "Trailing Jim Hatfield, high point man of Crimson track, by only a few points, Beecher has been in the vanguard of those who have made Indiana feared and respected in track and field this year. 'Beech' has increased his height a full foot this year to become one of the best pole-vaulters in America. Improving with every meet he attained in the National Intercollegiate the dizzy height of 13'6" to finish second to Tommy Warne. Next year, his last in competition, holds great things in store for him."
