An intensive two hour dummy scrimmage in which an eleven composed of scrubs and ineligibles put on Dartmouth formations occupied the attention of teams A and B yesterday afternoon.
The attacking aggregation was coached by C. A. Linehan '10 who has been scouting the Big Green in its games so far. The long forwards which were featured worked with surprising regularity at first; and though an improvement was noticed as the regulars became used to the plays, a great deal yet remains to be done on the aerial defense. To this task Coach Horween will devote the remainder of the week, all contact work being put off until next week at least.
It is the belief of the coaches that the Crimson's showing Saturday will be in a large measure dependent upon the ability of the secondary to check Dartmouth passes. The line showed its power in piling up the Cadet attack last Saturday, and the same forward wall will be intact this week-end.
J. H. Gildea '31, substitute center who has been out of active work with an injury suffered during the opening days of practice this fall, will not be ready for service until next week. A slight relapse in his condition has blasted all hope that he might do relief duty against thte Hanoverians. Other injured men are S. C. Burns '29, F. S. Davis '30, and W. R. Harper '30. The former two will be back in the lineup sometime next week, while Harper is expected to resume his regular berth today. He was in uniform yesterday but merely followed along with the signal drill.
