On hand for opening workouts are five lettermen from last year's earn, all of whom started at one time or another. The experienced cagers are forwards forwards Gary Bosshard and Rich Good, center Jack Van Straaten and guards LeRoy Yager and Bob Enebak. Three of the boys, Bosshart, Van Straaten and Enebak, are seniors, while Good and Yarkger are juniors. In the last two seasons the record stands at 2-28. Both victories, incidentally, incidentally, were scored against Kenyon in non-conference action and the Falcons have gone without a Big Nine Conference win since the tail-end of the 1955-56 season. Besides the lettermen, other top prospects are seniors Don Pederson Pederson and Francis Runchey and juniors Mike Parmelee, Gary Bauer, Bauer, Fred Neubert, Bill Peterson and Ray Schultz. Others expected to report later are Chuck Reineke Reineke and Lyle Zick. Although they have experience, the Falcons will lack height. Van it just a shade under tured season, Daugherty because of the flop of a team rated a strong title contender and Warmath Warmath because of the utter frustration frustration of an all-losing season.

He will be the fifth man Daugherty has tried at the key spot in his multiple offense. offense. State's main offensive threat remains remains Dean Look, the skilled and nimble left half who is one of the outstanding open field runners in the league. He is back in good shape again after playng two games with a corset-like brace to protect a hip injury.

Another BRIEFING to the AREA backfield vet, Arlie 5. Bomstad, definitely will start at left half. He returns after being sidelined for four weeks with an arm injury. Sophomores will hold down the other starting backfield spots — Larry Johnson at quarterback, Bill Kauth at right half and Roger Hagberg at fullback.
