Coach Works on Reserves MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minne sola football coach Murray War math has turned prospector. His goal is to find men capable j of taking some of the pressure off |9 his first string, which in some cas- played almost 60 minutes of football against Pittsburgh Satur- es day. He dismissed the varsity after only a brief drill Monday, going into the green reserves in hopes of offsetting another collapse such as yielded the Panthers' winning touchdown. Best evidence of Minnesota's lack of depth was at quarterback and at the halves. Jim Reese called signals for approximately 58 minutes minutes and Bob Soltis was at left half the entire contest. Warmath's anxiety stems from the opening here Saturday of the Gophers' seven-game Big Ten schedule against Northwestern. Minnesota likely will have a slight advantage in the line against the Wildcats. However, Northwest- em's backfield has more experience experience and depth. Only cheerful note from Monday's Monday's practice was the report of no new injuries.
