ON BLOOM HEAVY BASKETBALL FIVE Last Year's Regulars Defend Starting Jobs Sixteen former squartmen and newcomers are battling with five holdover regulars for starting . lions as Coach C. M. Sarff Shis Bloom heavyweights through daily drills calculated to place them "I sport Its of of decree rc- night trunk the basketball campaign one I from tomorrow night. i Leroy Robinson and Jack Hend- i ron, forwards; Joe Dsntico, cen- I ter, and Francis Se-rs and Earl | Telia, comprising last seasor.'s team, are on hand to give Sard the most experienced club he handled in recent years. With type of talent available, the outsiders are finding their task of edging into the lineup plenty difficult Charles Grupp, center for the Bloom lightweights last year, is one of the contenders for regular employment, as are Forwards Warren Swope and Tony Delsner, heavyweight lettermer.. Still another letter-winner, Gerald Shambo, didn't return to school this year, but he may be in the fold when the next semester begins. These veterans will be supported by a promising group of reserves when the season starts. Forwards who are battling for recognition we Edwin Voytina, Orlando Garzelloni, Mathew Banks, Ernest Angellini and Armondo Cloe. Bob Farrell Is a lanky center .candidate, while guards include Charles Pease, Ray Nelson, Vincenzo Scampini, Harman Spina, Ossie Selpel, Earl Ruckman and Laurence Corsiglia.

Slxe 1s Problem The only sour note in the entire setup, so far as SarfT is concerned, is the general lack of height which handicapped these same veterans last season. Thus he'will pay particular attention likely reserves who possess size as well as ability. Farrell, thc giant football tackle, falls in this classification. Speed to burn will be included in the Bloom ranks. Robinson, fleet-footed colored Jad, and Hendron will flash more speed forwards than they did last year, for Hendron is faster than before. Other members of the team arc able to get around. Scrimmages have been in order for some time, what with virtually ail of the potential active members well acquainted with fundamentals of the game. Thc Beavers, strong independent club, furnish- ed the opposition Wednesday. in a workout
