"It's the first lime in my coaching days that I've had a team to ask for more work," exclaimed Coach Manning. After a pretty brisk workout the Hurricane mentor told tho boys lo go lo the showers; but no boys went. They asked for more practice and more practice they got. Just sf, the moon came tip the ambitious griclders were ready to go in. The squad has only one thought in mind, "Beat Hope Friday."

They said the limitation probably would apply to persons, rather man to farms.
