Coach Kipke Sends Picked Team
Through Series of Fast
Running Plays.
For the second time this season
Coach Kipke drilled his Varsity
grid squad behind closed gatesyes-
terday. Beginning with a light
work out for the individual play-
ers; he later sent a picked team
through a series of fast running
plays, concentrating the backfield
on offense.
Hudson, DeBaker, Tessmer, and
Simrall worked in the backfield to-
gether and later Goldsmith, East-
man And Heston teamed up with
Tessmer. ,The m a i n difficulty
seemed to be in the lack of speed
shown by the interference. The
ball carriers were repeatedly slow-
ed up by their own men obstruc-
.ting the way.
DeBaker and Heston showed a
good deal of speed but had diffi-
cult in cutting in behind their of-
fense. At present the coaches are
concentrating on blocking practice
for all men with the 'backs doing
the hardest work. A short period
was also devoted to a series of
short running passes with Hudson
doing the heaving.
