Hes had the biggest build-up of any Hawkeye, and his record war- rants it. Last year he broke nearly every Iowa passing record: Most yards gained (1.124), most completed (70), best completion percentage (70 of 119 for .588) and 10 touchdown strikes.

Being tabbed for several tentative preseason all-American teams would put many 21-year-olds up in the clouds. But Randy had both feet on the ground Monday when the Hawks gathered for Pictures and interviews. ulncan We should have better running this year, offered Randy. "Our halfbacks and fullbacks look very good, and we have a lot of dont, think any team will dare concentrate then defense too much against our passing, because we have the running to keep them honest." An interviewer, asked if Randy thought his quarterback position looked stronger now that Mitch Ogiego (a mature sophomore who will be 24 years old on Nov. 20) is on hand as a replacement, Duncan squinted into the shy September sun a second or 2.

then disarmed his listeners with a very modest reply. I'm not sure yet Mitch is JUST a replacement," he said earnestly. Civilization Reaches the Captain You may have thought the big change in Iowa football this fall is the absence of an all-American end, an all-American tackle, a flock of tried and true guards and tackles and 2 sweet right halfbacks. Its not The big change was the wedding of. the Hawkeye captain, John The Nose Nocera.

And the repercussions are only starting. When Nose brought his pretty bride, a former airline stewardess, back to Iowa City it touched off a chain reaction that will be felt all over the Town and Gown of the city. With living in an' apart- ment with his wife, who will guide his former roommate, Geno Sessi, the splendid little halfback with the giant horn-rimmed specs? WhaJ fun will there be at Joes Place without the rollicking, fun-loving Nocera to hold court?

Iowa To Hurl 20 Passes a Game-Evy By Gus Schrader, -IOWA CITY Io.wa may throw an average of 20 passes per game this season, Coach Forest Evashevski warned as his 7th Hawkeye team began twice-a-day practices Tuesday. The head coach, bothered by a bad cold, spent most of Monday being photographed and interviewed by newsmen and making re cordmgs for radio and television. "We averaged about 17 passes per game last year," Evy said, "and well probably do 20 a game this season." The Iowa coach continued to air his worry about the lack of experience in the middle of the line. When an interviewer inquired about his pass defense, he replied: "With the middle of our line as weak as it promises to be, opponents would be foolish to throw the ball.

Asked to name the best prospects at filling the gaps left by the departure of Tackles Alex "Karras, Sleepy Klein, Frank Rigney And Dick Theer, Guards Frank Bloomquist, Bob Commings and Don Bowen and Center Chuck Pierce, Evy listed them as follows: At tackles behind John Burroughs and Mac Lewis John Sawin, 208-pound junior from Chicago who, is "small, but quick on offense, and Bill Scott, 6-8, 235-pound senior from Iowa City who "is not a 'bad blocker but has a long way to go on defense." Guards Four inexperienced juniors who played only briefly last fall. "They "are Don Shipanik, 175-pound- er from Chicago, and Albert Dunn, 195-pounder from Lancaster, behind Gary Grouwinkel at left guard, and Gerry Novack, 205-pounder from Lorain, Ohio, and Tom IN a 185- ppunder from Jersey City, behind Hugh Drake at right guard. 'r Center Better off -than at guard or tackle. Lloyd Humphrey, 198-pound junior from and Steve urner, 1 90-pound junior from Walerloor back up big Bill Lapham. Evy said his 60-man squad reported pxpect-.

ed except for Roger Helm, 200-pound soph from Cedar Rapids who has decided to pass up football to concentrate on hls 'engineering studies, and Ron Bosrock, Junior guarter- back" from Billie CreekT who is not returning. eligibility status of John Brown, fleet junior halfback, and Bill Gravel, last year's starting left half, is still undecided but there is hope both will make it, Brown pulled down a 3.51 average in summer school and needs only to complete a correspondence course.
