Alexander ha* been one of the •urprises of the Stmlnole camp. In the team'i first two games his Uckling and especially his donn- fleld blocking has been sharp. Coach Boyce felt his squad show*d improvement In protecting the l.ptuer in the Dyess contest last ] week, but was disappointed in the j Btminoles' downfleld blocking, a ! phase of the game which the Tribe j handled with busto In the Parkin * (ftme. ) The Yellow Jackets, although they j have lost both of their contests l thU year, hav« shown improve- I merit ilnce the opening of the j Kason and could give Osceola fans j a lurprise.
