Tom Harmon Another Red Grange DC Correvont graduates late next month, when he will make up his mind about college. Coaches for miles around would like to read his mind now. While De Correvont stands out. there are reports of phenomenal school players from nll-scc- tions. Naturally most of them are backs for backs calch the eye, but theie no doubt Is the same superabundance' of linemen, and backs often are transformed into linemen in college. As great as De Correvont is scouts also .were attracted by his .miarterbacking mate, Sonny Skor, and two or three Austin linemen who ended their high school playing careers on (lie identical momentous afternoon. Allhoiu;h my Peoria operatives ha ic been describing Davey Miller of Toulon, Hi., High ns another Red Grange, with the explanation that they realize just how much tciYitory tbiit includes, the name of this 17-year-old youngster ap pears on the second team in soim All-Illinois selections. This is due to the preponderance of star high school backs in Illinois, and also to the fact that Toulon is a very small school witn no tough teams" on ils' schedule. Milter says that he intends to enter Illinois, and it will be nul-,. all right with Robert Zuppke if he turns out to be a second Red t'range. Miller has the size. He now Elands, six feet one-and-one-half inches and weighs more than 180 He only has to live up to half of Ws advance notices as a carrier Mocker, parser, and kicker to make Zfippfcc repeat what h c s^ whcn he first set eyes on Grange: "He'll »«ke a great coael, out of m »" FrKliman Flossy.

In five meetings with I fie varsity that held California .to a scoreless tie, Ihc Washington fiosli prevailed on four occasions and obtained a draw. Stanford and Southern California had superlative freshman squads, which iwere not uncommon from one side of the continent to the other.
