Drill Is Stiff
It was a full hour's drill at run-
ning down punts. He divided the
men up into about five full teams,
and chose one line to play the de-
fensive roll during most of the
morning. The remaining four
elevens alternated on the offensive
side of the ball. The drill served
a two-fold purpose; it taught the
defensive team to protect the
kicker, and to close in on the op-
posing safety man, while the de-
fensive line was schooled in block-
ing kicks, and the coaches spent
most of their time teaching the of-
fensive backs to form effective in-.
terference for the receiver of the
punt.
Backfield talent seems plentiful
enough and the main problem will
be to draw up well rounded combi-
nation which will combine speed,
weight, drive, kicking and passing
ability, and balance. The grad-
uation of Captain Rich was the
only backfield loss of 1928, but no-
body will be rash enough to name+
a backfield combination although
Jim Simrall seems to have a
strangle hold on the quarterbacK
job and may draw the punting and
passing assignments.
Gembis Has Fight

IOWA CITY, Ia., Sept. 19.-Ac- £x
tion of the Western conference fac-
ulty committee in declaring Allan:
Holman, star Ohio State quarter-
back, eligible for another year of
competition at the Buckeye institu-<
tion, was attacked by two Univer- ~

ground that it was a direct viola-

years ago.
In 1910, according to Ingalls'

to Iowa after. three years at Par-

it did Stephenson's brother, Ed -
who also played three years at Par-
sons before enrolling here. ..
Holman, they point out, played : .
a year with Parsons, a year at Iowa - ;
State and one year at Ohio, and,
therefore, should have been de-
lared ineligible.

fifteen years Connie has been
experimenting with the A's,
trying in vain to build up a
team, to compare with that of
fifteen years ago. Now that
he has succeeded the whole
American League is pulling for
him.
The Nati.nal League, however, is
pulling for Joseph McCarthy, 'the
popular leader of the Chicago Cubs
to give the Windy City fans an-
other flag. Joe is a real leader, a
man who inspires his men to play
their best ball. It can be depended
upon that the Cubs will not curl
up and play dead before the Amer-
ican Leaguers as the Pirates and
Cardinals of the last two years did.
A real series is in prospect..
Some great pitchers will be
in evidence during this series.
Lefty Grove and Rube Walberg,
undoubtedly the two best port-
siders in baseball, are on the
the payroll of the Athletics. For
right slanders Connie Mack has
George Earnshaw, Ed Romimell,
and Jack Quinn to call upon.
Earnshaw is the wonder of his
lea' e, having displayed the
class that made him the star
of the International League
when he was a member of the
Baltimore Orioles.
Bush, Malone, Blake, and Root,
all righthanders, form the pitching
staff of the Cubs. The only lefties
on the Cub staff are Nehf and
Cvcngros, both substitute hurlers
who will get no chance to start a
series game. Grove and Earnshaw
should star for the Mackmen, while
Bush and Malone are figured to
baffle the A's.
Both contesting clubs have a
bevy of right handed sluggers.
The Cubs, with Hornsby, Ste-
phenson, Wilcox, Wison, Mc-
Millan, and English are usually
bugaboos for any lefty to face.
Only Cuyler and Grimm of the
regulars bat from the wrong
side of the plate.
