But Tennessee has played a rather hand-picked s/Jiedulc with a breather every other week, and (he major clubs It tackled were mediocre. Kentucky fumbles . . no less than eight of which were recovered by the Volunteers . made things easier for Major Bob Neylaiul's orange shirts.

And as for their defensive ability, they wouldn't need much because , spite an epidemic of knee Injurle. to Its tailbacks. Johnny Butler, the third-string man who ran CB yards lo a toueli dcwn against Alabama, went ou with one in the Kentucky baltl after surviving an earlier concus slon. Bernard 6'Nell, the fourth string man, lias a bad knee. But Tennessee is more than tluci deep at more than one position am still has Buist Warren, the seconi string, and Van Thompson, who go into his first important game ii Lexington.
