Stressing the running department,
Coach Harry Kipke sent his re-
vamped squad through a hard work-
out in Yost Field House yesterday in
an effort to strengthen his attack.
4 Line plays kept the squad busy for
more than two hours as Kipke and
his assistants looked over the new
mien in the first team. Marcpvsky
tand Kowalik were paired in the
guard positions, with Damm .and
Chapman at tackle. Hildebrand was
shifted to right end,and Ward and

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 27-
(Special)-Disquieting reports re-
garding the strength of the Kansas
State eleven by Assistant Coach Guy
Mackey, who scouted the Wildcats
in their decisive 26 to 0 victory over
Wichita University Saturday, coupled
with the disappointing showing of
the Boilermaker varsity in the regu-
lation game with the yearlings on
the same day, served to give added
speed to Purdue's drill Monday as'
the squad launched its final week
of practice before the season's op-
According to Mackey's report, Mc-
Millin's Wildcats will invade the
Ross-Ade stadium Saturday with the
biggest team that the Boilermakers
will meet all season. "McMillin has
a big, powerful team that is decep-
tive on attack and rugged on de-
fense," said Mackey. "Advance no-
tices regarding the sensational ball-
carrying of Graham are no exag-
geration," he added. "Graham, who
weighs close to 200 pounds, scored
three touchdowns against Wichita,
and it was apparent that Bo was not
opening up the full power of his
Coupled with the disappointment
over the showing on offense against
the yearlings, injuries to Dutch Feh-
ring, veteran tackle, and Doxie
Moore, right halfback, have aggra-
vated Purdue's worries as it prepares
for the Wildcat invasion. Fehring
suffered a recurrence of an old knee
injury in the yearling game, while
Moore wrenched his back, and it is
doubtful whether either one will be
able to start Saturday.
In an effort to fill the hole left
by Fehring's injury, Paul Emmons
has been moved back from the cen-
ter position to his old tackle post.
Reports from Manhattan indicate
that the Wildcats' victory hopes have
been heightened by the performance
against Wichita, coached by Al Ge-
bert, former Notre Dame star, and
that McMillin is planning on "shoot-
ing the works" in an effort to en-
hance his "upset" reputation.

Varsity Manaoer
Requires a Long
Three Years Preparation
Necessary to Achieve
Responsible Post
Just a water boy, you may say,
when you see some white shirted
sophomore running down the field,
shagging footballs, and doing many
odd jobs for Coach Kipke and his
assistants, But some day, in his se-
nior year, he may be football mana-
ger of the Varsity, with more re-
sponsibility on his hands than you
can imagine.
Three long seasons of intensive
preparation are necessary to become
eligible for the position, and then the
man must be better qualified than
the rest of the candidates. Louis
Columbo is this year's manager, with
some 15 assistants under him.
The manager toils, perspires, fig-
ur es, and refigures, trying to
straighten out all the multitude of
details of putting a team on the field.
He is the contact man between the
coach and the business department,
taking orders from both, and satis-
fying both. He must arrange the de-
tails for the trips, planning the itin-
erary, meals, and everything, having
sufficient footballs on hand at all
times, helmets counted or accounted
for, and other equipment on hand
when the coach wants the material.
But Columbo also has a pleasant
side to his job. He is with the team
constantly. He knows every player
i-ntimately. Their good times are his.
Their trips 'are his trips, their losses
his, and their victories his.
And the juniorimanagers, if not
elected to Columbo's job next fall,
have a chance to manage some of the
minor, sports.
Right now there is a call for soph-
omore managers. It is a great job
and there are no secret practices for
you, if you apply.

paper of Denison university at

oountry squad may see Coach
Hoyt at Yost Field House any
afternoon this week, at 4 o'clock.

Freshman Grid
Aspirants G e t
First Workout
More than 75 Yearlings
Turn Out; Keen, Auer
Direct Initial Fall Drill
More than 75 husky yearlings re-
ported to Coach Clifford Keen yes-
terday afternoon at Yost Field House
as candidates for the freshman elev-
en of 1932. Uniforms were distribu-
ted, and a general warm-up and or-
ganization program followed.
Howard Auer, former tackle of last
year's Varsity eleven, assisted Coach
Keen in working with the eager
freshmen. The workout opened with
a passing drill to limber up muscles
in disuse over the summer. Then
work began in earnest with a drill
on line play for the entire squad.
Charging stance and technique were
dealt with by both mentors, and the
yearlings dug up the cinders under
the old Ferry Field stand with their
cleats as they flung themselves at
imaginary opponents.
Keen Has Task
To Coach Keen falls the task of
fashioning a selected group into a
working combination. Eleven out of
seventy-five will.see a great deal of
action, and will be of real use to the
varsity in illustrating the character-
istic plays of future opponents. Mich-
igan's policy, however, eliminates the
idea that the yearlings are just so
many tackling dummies for the var-
Concerning his reaction to the
general quality of the squad, Coach
Keen admitted that it was too early
in the year to make any statements.
The mentor expects to have a ma-
chine tentatively selected by the be-
ginning of next week. Then the
squad can illustrate Northwestern's
plays for the varsity. For the M.
S. C. contest this Saturday, a group
of second stringers have taken the
usual place of the freshmen in il-
lustrating formations.
Names Not Announced
Information concerning the per-
sonnel of the outfit was not available
yesterday, since lists had not yet
been made out by the manager.
However, the names of several out-
standing players from the high
schools of the state will probably be
discovered upon examination of the
roster. According to Coach Keen, he
has no pre-conceived notions as to
the ability of any individual player.
