Morton of the Chicago Alumni Asso-

trophy which is emblematic of out-

Out of the many yearling prospects
that turned out this spring there--are
several who fall into the favored class.
Freddie Trosko, a flashyhalfback
from Flint who shows plenty of na-
tural ability looks like the favorite.
A number of others are not to be
overlooked, however. Among them
is big "Joe" Savilla, six feet-two
inches and 210 pounds of fast-charg-
ing tackle who will probably find a
place in the starting line-up on the
Varsity next fall.
Another prospect who should not be
overlooked is John Kinsey a fine
punting back. Archie Kodros, a
guard, is another who rates a chance
for the prized award.
Others rated a chance for the
trophy include Milo Sukup and Her-
cules Renda backs, and Ernie Zielin-
