The squad is fast picking up th fundamentals of foot ball. The line charging Is yet in its Infancy but be fore the month is up the coach expect the boys to have it down to a fine point. He is looking for a good punt er which seems to be a lost art fo the last few years. Adams, Williams and Parsons show the most ability In this direction. Alsrona will have two sets of back but neither one will average over 14 pounds in weight, but will make u; in ,speed which in speed what they lack in weight. Th line will stack up with the averag high school In weight and If thev de velop a charge the team will give good account of itself. The guards will weigh about 15 pounds and will be pulled out of th line for interference. The tackles wi be heavy, averaging about 180 and th ends about 160. Ostrum, Kanouff, K Cowan and Harm-eaves make up th ends and are fairly fast. This is the! second year and last year they show ed up well on thn defense. Bllnkma and Adams, a tackle, will both be used in line plunging. Adams, who is captain, showed up well In this work last year. Blossom, Medin and Samp are the quarterbacks. Samp is the only one who has had any experience under fire, The who"le squad is going at their football seriously and with a lot of pep and are determined to go through the season undefeated. Prospects for P good elevn this year are very good, according to Coach Bonham, who Is working the bovs hard every night.
