John Dorman '36, of Beirut, Syria, was last night elected to captain the 1935 soccer team, while Whitney G. Case '36, of Buffalo, N. Y., will become manager and William Lawrence '37, of Providence, R. I., assistant manager for next year.
Dorman graduated from Exeter, captained his Freshman eleven and led their attack from the center forward position. Coming up to the Varsity in 1933, he was transformed by Coach Jack Carr, into a center halfback, and has starred for two years as the keystone of the Crimson defense.
Case, who prepared at Avon Old Farms managed the 1936 Freshman team, while Lawrence is affiliated with the sport for the first time this year.
With all but four of the men who started in the 1-0 defeat of Yale this fall returning to competition next fall, Dorman's prospects for the 1935 eleven are bright.
Coach Carr looks to three lettermen, Charles S. Kelley, III '36, Edward Metley, Jr. '36, and Philo F. Willetts '36, to fill the shoes of the veteran forward nucleus composed of Captain Stork, Delavane C. Close and Melvin G. Grover, which has functioned to perfection in the contests of the past three years. In the goal there will be another difficult problem created by the graduation of Jonathan S. England.
