He features "Comeback" and "Goback." a couple of dummies whom he claims- are as prpular among coaches us is Ivlgar Bergen's Charlie McCarthy amoiiK radio fans. Oilman, who played football for Connecticut State college in the late j twenties, noticed tune and effort were wasted in lifting and hooking up the ! dummies then used. l A .Slur l.s Horn While wandeiing about Ins father's ! cotton mill he saw piles of waste. He ; did a little experimenting and fash- ! ii'iied a mushionm-shaix-d dummy ' made of cotton batting and woolen hair.

Today his dummies can be found. Oilman claims, on practice fields of fjOO colleges and schools.
