CASEY POSSIBLE FRESHMAN COACH UNDER NEW RULE

1934 Backfield Coach Unlikely to Be Retained--May Set Ahead Opening Of Fall Practice

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Further possible results of Harvard's appointment of Dick Harlow as the new head coach of football appeared yesterday as undergraduates, graduates, and sport commentators reacted to the new regime.

One of the most prominent of these possibilities and one which received credence rather generally was the chance that Eddie Casey, recently resigned head coach and would be selected by Harlow to take charge of the Freshman football team.

Casey had a successful career as a Freshman coach and since his system deviates less from that which will be instituted by Harlow than the type of play which Cliff Gallagher has been teaching, it was though likely that Casey would be a logical choice.

The fate of the other grid coaches now on the Harvard staff, was considered as highly improble that Jimmy Knox, veteran Jayvee coach, could be found a place in the Harlow scheme. Knox is expected to take over some phase of intramural football.

Although Ed Kubale, head coach of Center College still is considered a prominent possible selection as the line coach under Harlow, Adam Walsh was believed by many to be a likely choice.

Myles Lane, Varsity backfield coach during the past season will probably not return to Harvard next fall and Harlow is expected to bring up a new assistant to take his place. Bill Shepard, a Western Maryland star of the 1934 season, who received mention on several All-American teams was looked to as a possible choice.

Several changes in the matter of practice will probably be made under the new regime. One of the most important of these is the abolition of the Big Three agreement which forbids Harvard, Yale, and Princeton from starting fall practices until September 15.
