ELEVEN POLISHES OFFENSE AS ARMY TEAM COMES TO TOWN
Miller, Ayres Possible Starters Tomorrow
The 1940 edition of West Point football suffered a stunning defeat in last week's game with Cornell. They're down, but you can't over count the Army team out in a game with Harvard With that in mind Coach Dick Harlow sent the squad through another stiff drill yesterday afternoon on Soldiers Field. Dick wants to win tomorrow's game.
In particular Harlow stressed precision and polish in the operation of an offense that he hopes will gain momentum tomorrow for the first time this season.
Also emphasized was defensive work against plays used by the Army team, which arrived in Boston last night. Wes Fosler, who scouted the Cornell debacle saw little of the Cadets' offensive strategy since the Ithacans dominated so much of the play, but what he did see, the Crimson eleven is now perfectly familiar with.
Mazur Back in Lineup
Led by Captain Gillis at the pivot post. Army will be at full strength tomorrow. Their triple threat Sophomore fullback. Mazur, who missed last week's white washing, is back in the lineup. Of the present Cadet first string, Michel, the left tackle, and Gillis started last year's game, in which the Crimson upset the dopesters with a 15 to 0 shutout.
The team which will work out in the stadium this afternoon is a light one, outweighed in the line seven pounds to the man. Michel at 198 pounds, is the heaviest on the squad.
Miller Possible Starter
Harvard would announce no starting lineup yesterday afternoon, but the only posts which are in doubt are the left tackle and the center assignments. Mountainous Vern Miller has shown a world of improvement during the week and he has an outside chance of nosing out Pete Elser for the starting berth.
Sheldon Dietz was still nursing bruises incurred by Harmon and the "Gang" in last Saturday's tussle. Burgy Ayres as a result continued in the number one pivot post and may keep right on "continuing" there for the starting whistle tomorrow.
