What he bad in mind was disclosed only to hit assistants with whom he met in private in the hotel dining room after breakfast. Among the guesses propounded waa that Evashevski wanted to try out a few new wrinkle* he wai keeping under his hat or that he haa cooked up aomtthinf secret in the way of defense. The surprise more for secrecy marked the Hawkeyea final day of hard drill*. The program for today called only for a light session in full football regalia.
