Coach Fritz Crisler is starting off
is career as Michigan's football men-
or with one advantage which may
rove to be the difference between a
tediocre and really good grid ma-
hine-speed in the backfield.
Whereas during the last several
ears the Wolverine ball-carriers have
ot been exceptionally fast men, Cris-

ludes at least three promising backs
'ho are speed merchants in the
rict sense of the term..
Strong Is Speedy
Dave Strong, who may be used at
uarterback or tailback, is usually in
ae public eye because of his long,
ccurate punts or fine passes. The
ct that Dave can lug that pigskin
ith the best of them is usually over-
ohed. As a track man in high
chool, Strong ran the 100nyard dash
eing thrice clocked in 9.8 seconds.
Paul Kromer, the pride of Kiski and
orain, Ohio, put his speed to work
his winter with the freshman track
sam. Paul has .done the 100 yard
ash in 9.9 and when he sets sail
round right end it's a cinch that
ootball cleats don't hold him back
ery much.
Kromer was an All-State halfback
n Ohio and was another of Ray Fish-
r's triple threat men last fall with
he frosh gridders.
Harmon Is Hard To Stop
Gary's highly publicized Tom Isar-
ion 'is the third of Crisler's pupils

Add Norm Purucker to this, com-

Wally Hook is another fast man.
