I'm not afraid of the Hurricane doiii? much with our line."-. Aside from a couple of vets. Hudson's line is com|>oscd ot youngsters with but little experience on the firing line. Capt. Raider, Ihe stalwart tackle, and George Matthews, ttellar center, are the veterans of the line and their experience gives the otherwise green wall a fair balance.
