Ten, anil we feel that if the soft-spoken Colonel can net an even break or better to show for his season's efforts, he a-Kain can rank among the miracle men of couching. The lilKiiest break Mc.Millin has had tills fall is the return of Jack Tavener. his brilliant center. He is an expert line backer and a brilliant field neneral. and was one of the two letterinen around whom Ho built his 1043 surprise team. The other was Pete Pihos, end. who has gone the way of most college veterans on to war. Seek HfM'insclietlieyer II Just how far Indiana will get depends on whether AleMillin can pull out of the hat another "Hunchy" Hoernschemyer, the amazing freshman who was' throwing passes throughout last season with uncanny accuracy. He's found no one yet to take his place. Saturday the Hoosiers meet Illinois at Champaign in the season's opening conference game and on one of four men may fall the passing duties. These are lien Raimondl of Brooklyn. Harry Jagade of River drove. 111., Bob Miller of Chicago and Ralph "Ciunner" Thompson of Indianapolis. None of them ever has played collage football before. Kiv lliglit Half Contenders At right half, any one of the half dozen freshmen who saw action last Saturday against Fort Knox may be the No. 1 man for the Dig Ten campaign. Thompson and Del Russell of Chicago look like the best bets. (leorge Sunheim, 200- pounder from La Orange, III., is the standout among the fullbacks, although he, too, is a freshman. CJuarterback will be manned by a veteran John Cannady, who started every Indiana game last fall. Mike Moilak, 1116-pound freshman from Campbell, O., is his chief understudy. SetiMHieil Line Ready The line will be more of a seasoned outfit than it was a year ago. Tavener, of course, will be the mainstay, linb Ravensberg, at one end: Frank Cioli and J. C. "Rooster" Coffee at I he guards, and Joe Sowinski and Joe Kempt at the tackles, all saw action in each of the 1!M: contests and should be much improved over their freshmen year. John CoiiKdon of Chicago, who also is a candidate for quarterback, is regarded as a possible replacement lor I'eto I'ihos at one end. Ted Klu-zewski, 6 foot, 2 inch 215-pounder from Argo, III., is another possibility. Some of the frosh among the line candidates may crowd one or two veterans out of starting berths. A-mong the chief threats are Carl Nestor, 175-pound all-Indiana high school guard: Lou "Genera!" Mlhaj-lovich, guard from South Bend: Hick Deranek, end from South Bend, and John Roper, 6 foot, 5 ini'h, 200-pound tackle from Campbell. O. Don't expect too much from the Hoosiers. but don't sell them too short, either. LAFAYETTK, lnd.
