Again No'.re Dame looked very bad indeed. The line bucks piled up before they could get stavled, and \otre Dame made a sorry spectacle of herself when she started passing. * * • How It Works What is tnis 6-3-2, and how does it function against Notre Dame style? Well, it's very simple when you stop to think about il. Just place six men on the line of scrimmage, pulling one of the linemen back. TliLs lineman and two of the backs ulay behind the defending liiie. Further back are the two other backs. The three men Just, behind the line are ready to go to whichever fide the play goes. The plan gives tl?rc3 men immediately behind the line, where theere were only two before. Usually the faster of the linemen is the one pulled back to work with the secondary. ' In this way there is a halfback flanking each (tickle and a loose player In the middle ready to swing either way with the play. Of course, (here is a short side of Ihe line, caused by pulling one" of Ihe linemen back, there being two men on on side of the center, and three men on the other. - * • Extra Secondary -The Sutherland modification of the 0-3-2, as noted by this writer (lil-Ing the PItt-Notre Dame struggle, places the man who is backing the short side of the line a little farther back than his two fellow secondaries. . ''. The 6-3-2 gives Notre Dame- coached teams the problem of blocking out or getting past an'ex- . the group which will probably be available for service tonight, are: Wallace, Ben Elliott, B'Olis KcoJice, Addison Smith. O.scar Elliott, Ead?s, Rternbcrg, Colston, I Rayder -Kirkendal, Christian, and others. Little is known of the Kennett team except that it has a victory over the Portasjeville town team to its credit and is sponsored by Everett B. Gee, who picks his boys to show the Blythevilie team a fas'. brand of football.

Drake Off Irish Sked The seven-year scries of foal- ball games between Notre Dame and Drake, arranged by the late Kiiulc Rocknc and Osslc Solcm. a fellow Norwegian, endod iviili tire game Hie two teams ptayrri thl; Mr. Anderson's problem is to de- vase a plan that will take this extra secondary out of the way of the ball carrier, so Notre Dame can continue those long runs through tackle that marked the Rcckne regime. » » » It's No ripe Mr. Anderson knows he has a tough job on his hands. On returning from Pittsburgh, lie lined «p the frosh with the C-3-2 defense, gave the first-siring players the ball and told them to get going. The frosh did tlic same thlnu with the varsity attack that Pitt had done, and t!:al the Army had done trefore that. They piled np Hie tackle thrusts, and harassed or smolliered the forward p.iss?rs. Mr. Anderson has known for - time about this 6-3-2, au-J last spring began concentrating on some plan to bsat it. It seems to me that one of Ihc test football stories of the year will bs concerned with this defense, which may spell success or failure of Hunk ns i coach at Notre Dam?. As the 'word goes aroi'nd. more and more teams will throw old *-3-2 into thr pith of the Irish Is "it possible that the Notre Dame football dynasly will stumble over something a.s simple as all that.
