tainCss both in moments of cri-
ses , and in ordinary play. His con-
tribution to the morale of the squad
at all times may be rated very high-
ly, and there is no doubt that in
the position of leadership next
year, his influence will do much to-
ward making the Maize and Blue
team a winning one.
Not only in football does the cap-
tain-elect shine. He was a valued
player on the basketball squad of
last year, holding down one of the
regular guard positions. Here again,
Williamson's stellar defense work
was a constant prop to the team.
It should also be noted that his
consistent floor-work was a feature
of the offense. He will probably fill
one of the starting positions on this
year's squad, with two brilliant sea-,
sons predicted for him.
