The fact that tho rest of the lettermen graduated, leaving huge holes to be filled, causes Opheim's fears before the new season begins. Such men as Gre* ham Roskamp, Don Rtppentrop, David Bocckholt, Gary Zwiefel Donald Gerdis and Kent Hoover cannot be replaced in one season normally. Those six graduates led' the Indians to a 6-1 won-los record a year ago, the most sue cessful since the sport was begun at Titonka. Lettermen returning are Keith Bartelt, end, Dave Buffmgton back, Robert Kinseth, end, Mar tin Norland, back, David Sea berg, guard, Walt Smith, end Lynn Struthers, guard, all sen iors, Sid Buffington, back, Gar Smidt, guard, Keith Van Hov guard, juniors, and Dennis Krom inga, sophomore center. Weakest spots will probably b the tackles, where two new me will be inserted to fill the gaps. The ends and guards are well fortified, and an experienced man is ready at center. Three experienced backs are ready, but one spot will probably be filled by a newcomer. Biggest problem is probably the lack of reserve strength. The members of the squad are lighter than they have ever been, and while many experienced men are back for another try at football, injuries could prove a real bugaboo to a successful year.
