Cappon does not expect a full'

basketball floor has been erected.
At present on the football team
are Bill Barclay, a regular starter
last year and, Danny Smick, who also
saw a great deal of action and who
will undoubtedly see plenty more this
year. Freddie Trosko, frosh cage
star last year, will appear as soon as
the Ohio State game is over.
Other sophomores and juniors who
have been working out with the squad
are Russ Dobson, Charles Pink, Ed
