The 1938 football season will officially open today, with 50 Freshmen expected to report to head coach Dick Harlow at 4:30 in Briggs Cage. Practice for the next week will be for the class of 1941 only, and upperclassmen are scheduled to report on March 22.
Six coaches will assist Harlow in the spring drills, including Wes Fesler, end coach, Lyal Clark, line coach, John Wood, backfield coach, Vernon Struck, assistant backfield coach, Henry Lamar, Junior Varsity coach, and Skip Stahley, Freshman coach. For the first time in a long while an undergraduate, Struck, will be acting in an official coaching capacity before graduation.
Harlow has issued invitations to certain Seniors, lettermen of last fall, to assist with this year's practice. John Nee, first string guard, has already accepted the invitation and is expected to put in an appearance this afternoon.
Spring practice will continue until April 1, will be suspended during the spring vacation, and then will continue for three weeks beginning April 11, it has been announced.
