(Upper Des Moines news- loto) **# * * * * • * Name Starting Lineup In Friday Grid Opener By Don Smith, Jr. B-U-L-L-D-O-G-S will be a very familiar chant for a couple of hours at the fairgrounds Friday night—for following the usual significant rattle of drums that always precedes a football game, the locals and Emmetsburg's E- Hawk.s will open Ihe 1955 season at 8 p.m. Hundreds of fans are attempting to cryslalball the outcome to no avail. Although very little information is available on the visitors, rumors indicate they are stronger than a year ago when the Bulldogs took care of them. 21-7. Emmetsburg practically always is able to give any team a rough go. and taking away Algona's len wins in the last 11 years, have held their own, and then some, against Bulldog teams. "Our backfield will give any learn trouble." staled Coach Jason Loving, Tuesday, "if our two big men, Doug Meyer and Bill Moxley, will run as hard as they can." The pair, Meyer at 200 pounds and Moxley at 180, have looked good. Loving announced his tentative stattmu line-up earlier this week. It includes seven seniors, three juniors and a sophomore.

Several of the present squad members will not be suited for the opener due to Ihe fact they' have not practiced the necessary three weeks before their first game. All will be available for the Webster City game next week. Two major problems face Jase —lack of depth and poor tackling. Of course it is entirely possible the heat of battle might develop changes on both counts, as the t' taste of action sometimes manufactures football players.

The contest is the first of eight games for Coach Lyle Opheim's outfit. Opheim has only five men with game experience returning for further action, and has only 24 men, including seven freshmen, on the squad. The outlook at present is dark. The team will be built around lettermen Carol Asche, Merlyn Barllett. Sid Buffington, Gary Smidt, Keith Van Hove and Dennis Krominga. Krominga is a junior, the others seniors. Outside of some of the juniors and seniors, most of the squad is pretty light. Opheim has been searching for a starting combination since practice sessions got underway, and must knit untried hands with his five returnees to produce a potential winner. • There is no depth of material, so any injuries to key players could be a catastrophe. Squad members include: seniors — Asche, Bartlett, Buffington, Smidt, Van Hove and Bob Seefeld; juniors — Krominga, Bobby Fritz, Kent Rippentrop and Glenn Schmidt: sophomores — Clinton Asche, Allen BoJ-ken, Arlen Bilsborough, Ernest ^Carlson, Richard Mayland, Gary Pearson and Gary Sleper; freshmen — Billy Abbas, Philip Asa, Harlan Hanna.
