FIRST DAY BRINGS 50 TO CLASS FOOTBALL RANKS

SENIORS ALONE FAIL TO MUSTER FULL QUOTA IN PRACTICE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Class football got under way yesterday afternoon when about 50 men reported to head coach Cheek for the initial work out of the season. Half of the squad were Sophomores and most of the rest Juniors, the number of Seniors who have reported so far being very small. Since a considerable number of men who were not out yesterday have signified their intention of joining the class ranks, which will also be supplemented by cuts in the University squad, the outlook for greatly increased interest in class football this year seems bright.

Class Football Prominent

Special attention is being given this fall to this part of the University football system as a part of the general endeavor to extend active participation in athletics to the rank and file of the students. For years class athletics have failed to arouse the interest or participa of very many students. Last year the class football schedules were uncertain, the squads very small, and the facilities scarcely adequate.

Has Own Coaching Staff

This season a special coaching staff, headed by M. A. Cheek '26, has been assigned to the class teams, and several fields have been provided for their rise. The only ingredient which is thus cssention for a successful season is a large number of candidates. The Seniors especially feel the need of men since several more are required to complete a team. The Freshman class will be represented by a team chosen from those who do not regularly see service see service in the 1929 games with outside elevens.

Hold First Practice

The first day's practice consisted of charging, kicking, and passing drills and careful explanations by the several coaches of the fundamental principles of the coaching system. The work-out ended with a relay race between the Sophomores and a Junior-Senior combination which showed the upper classmen to be the specdier outfit of the two. The work out was held on the field just beyond the regular Freshmen fields.
