Crisler Wants ,Dead Earnest'
Candidates A t First Spring Drill
Coach Fritz Crisler served advance
notice to all spring football candi-
dates yesterday that a singleness of
purpose-namely the urge to win a
regular playing berth-will be a prime
requisite during the impending train-
"Approximately 115 men indicated
a football interest through our ques-
tionaires," he stated, "but only 80
or so will beon hand for the opening
practice Monday due to spring sports.
"Please make one point clear," he
emphasized, "We prefer that no one
turn out who isn't in dead earnest
about making the team. If they
simply want to get their name in
the paper, they needn't bother.
Candidates Report Monday
All candidates-were urged to report
for drill at 3 p.m. Monday. Equip-
ment will be issued at the Field House
today, tomorrow, and Monday.
"We're going to stress fundamen-
tals next week," Crisler stated. "That
means special attention to' blocking,
the most important offensive weapon,
and tackling, the essence of defense."
"Specialities-punting, passing and
place kicking-will also receive em-
phasis," Crisler continued. "The en-
tire coaching staff will be here, and
we're going to get down to work at
In answer to a query as to what he
hoped to attain this spring, Crisler
"The stress will not be entirely on
fundamentals. Our whole basis of
play-both our offensive and defen-
sive plan-will be taught. We're go-
ing to get a good start in prepara-
tion for the fall."
A Season Prevue
What Crisler meant by "football
interest" was aptly exemplified yes-
terday. Six of the candidates couldn't
hold off until Monday and joined
Coaches Earl Martineau and Camp-
bell Dickson in a spirited game of
touch-ball at Ferry Field.
Working out in shorts and sweat-
shirts, Hercules Renda, Dave Strong,
Ed Phillips, and Jack Meyer, all back-
field candidates, warmed-up with
linemen Jack Brennan and Louie
Phillips, a blocking specialist, was
out last year due to ineligibility, while
Strong, Meyer, and Flora were on the
Martineau and Dickson chose up1
sides and the players split up for the
game. They all got plenty of leg
work, including the two new men-1
tors, who showed plenty of zip in
their roamings on the practice field.1
Martineau also watched Strong,t
the ex-Illinois quarterback who
transferred here last year, practice
punting. Renda was on the receiv-
ing end, and several of the boots of
the 60 yard variety had Here backing
up in a hurry.
Both Renda and Strong were ad-
vised as to their punting and receiv-
ing technique but on the whole active
coaching was postponed until next
As one wag put it: "If the early
birds always get that worm, these
guys ought to be in good shape this
fall." Perhaps Mr. Crisler's emphasis
on "interest" has something to do

Slim, dark haired Allan Tolmich
went through his paces over some
high hurdles set up on Ferry Field
Tuesday afternoon and admitted that
his greatest ambition was to break
the world's record doing just that.

University in June. While there hel
