FOOTBALL TEAM GIVEN HARD DEFENSIVE DRILL

ROBERTS, FORD, STRUCK STAR ON OFFENSIVE WORK

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

One of the hardest defensive drills of the year featured yesterday's practice of Coach Dick Harlow's Varsity gridders. For the second day in a row, Harlow kept the entire squad on the tackling dummies for almost half an hour, and more of the same tonic is in store for today.

Apparently determined to stem the offensive tide of the Army, as well as do a little scoring on its own hook, the Crimson is devoting almost three-quarters of every practice this week to work of a defensive nature.

Yesterday the C team was given the ball and ran Army plays and principally West Point pass plays against the A squad for the better part of half an hour following the tackling drill. Principally a stationary scrimmage, the drill brought out the fact that the secondary is diagnosing the passes before they develop much better than they have in the two games played thus far.

Offensive work was not neglected, however. Following the defensive scrimmage, the A team opposed the Jayvee eleven, and Roberts, Ford, and Struck broke away for substantial gains, aided by improved blocking. A 30-minute signal drill closed the day's session.

A similar drill on defensive fundamentals is scheduled for today, but of considerably less intensity. Tomorrow the second open practice will be held in the Stadium immediately following the practice of the Cadets. The Army squall arrives tonight and will go immediately to the Helment Country Club. While the Cadel corpe will not arrive until Saturday morning. They will march to the Studium from 1.15 to 1.35 o'clock preceeding the game.
