Possibilities of this phase of the game barely have been touched upon, and the better minds look for considerable development along this Hue during the next few. years. The most prominent .addition to the defense in 1936 was the revival and development of "mouse- trapping." Nearly every -club used It'to a greater or i less degree. Many outfits had this type of play to hit every hole along the defensive line. In the Haighton era at Harvard U was called the "psy- tveiser Cage Teams Win chological play," and was highly | developed against the defensive j right tackle. | The play's success Is based on , YarKrn On Tnpsrlav' allowing- a defensive lineman to r larDToyn, mesaay, Charge8 t hro ,, gh unmolested at a " T •'••.,. i man who apparently has the ball.
