Coach Ray Fisher's Freshman bas-
ketball squad which will start prac-
ticing in the new Yost field house
on Monday afternoon.
At present the squad is working out
in two groups, which practice on dif-
ferent days. A final cut in the squad
will be made probably this week, with
five or ten men receiving the axe.
The squad this season has shown a
wealth of material and several men
should prove of Varsity calibre next
season. Harrigan looks like the class
of the centers, although he is being
hard pressed. Schrumf, Chambers,
Weiss and Baer are capable forwards.
A large array of former high and prep
stars are fighting for the guard berths.
