FAN FARE WCRLP semes OP ©OLP C.C. AKRON C. "TH8Y PUT OUT A LOT Of SU8BBGI IS THIS TOWN - 9-7 Size,Depth Problems For Kansas Jayhawks LAWRENCE (AP)—Jack Mitchell agrees the Kansas offense should be stronger tin's fall because of a potent passing game, but size and depth problems in tlie line make the Jayhawks an unpredictable football team. "Our backfield is deep and fast and our secondary defense is better than any year I've been at Kansas," Mitchell told Big Eight conference writers Friday at the finish of their 2,263-mile tour of the training camps. "But we don't have the size of some conference teams in the line,' 1 he said. "We've had to do a lot of position switching to build depth in the line. This may continue for some time." The Jayhawks were a narrow choice for third place over Missouri ta the 18th annual preseason poll conducted by Don Pierce, Kansas publicity man. Kansas finished 6-3-1 last season, in fourth place. Mitchell told the writers they probably would change their minds and pick Missouri for third place after seeing the Kansas line.

Favorite Survives in Kaycee Net Tournament KANSAS CITY (AP) — The second and third seeds were beaten! in Frida.v' s action in tli,. Heart of America International Tennis Tournament but the favorite sur-1 viveii. j Cliff Drysdale of South Africa reached today's semifinals with a 75, 10-8 victory over Steve Wilkin. son of Io\\a Citv, Iowa., tjie Missouri Valley champion. ' "Our running game should be about as strong as last season," Mitchell said. "Potentially, we have a much better passing attack; and we hope this will make our team 15 to 20 per cent stronger than last season. Steve Reirko is an outstanding sophomore- prospect at quarterback, lie has all the native ability he needs. "However, we must be 25 per cent better to improve on our record in 1962 because our schedule is much stronger. Syracuse and Wyoming have replaced Boston and California and the league is tougher over-all." Gale Sayers, a fleet runner and able pass receiver at halfback, will play defense as well as offense. Mitchell said: "We think Sayers is one of the finest defensive prospects in the conference. He will be a real threat on kick returns and interceptions." Sayers led the Big Eight hi rushing in '62 with 1,125 yards and was third nationally. His average of 7.1 yards a carry led the nation. < * End Jay Roberts, a good pass catcher, and center Pete Quatrochi are the only returning regulars in the line. Tommy Thompson, considered a first string tackle, is out for an indefinite period with a knee injury. "Fullbacks Ken Coleman and Armand Boughman are outstanding on offense and among oar three best linebackers," Mitchell said, "because they love to play football. They get better every year." Tlie Kansas coach listed eight sophomores among his first 22. players. He said the 6-foot-*, 215- pound Rcnko. gnard Larry Ledford, tacfcle Dick Pratt and halfback Mike Johnson are the squad's best rookies "and will pla.y a lot of football for us this fall."
