DARTMOUTH-BOUND FOOTBALLERS DEFY STORMY ELEMENTS

Back Coaches Work at Double Problem Of Stopping MacLeod and Guarding Against Passes

By Donald B. Straus

A driving rain failed to break the Dartmouth-bound stride of the Crimson Varsity yesterday afternoon. In fact there was some doubt in the minds of the spectators as they huddled together in a wet and unhappy group on the practice field whether or not the players realized that it was raining. Towards the end of the afternoon Dick Harlow asked for a sheepskin coat, but aside from that complete Harvard indifference to the elements was unbroken.

Business as usual was the order of the day and the backs and ends utilized the time allotted to pass offense in getting used to handling a wet ball. This was the first rainy practice since the season has opened, and a little wet weather technique may prove highly valuable before many more Saturdays roll by.

"Crimson Wahoos"

"Wahoo wahoos" from one end of the field marked the spot where a Jayvee eleven was putting on the Dartmouth plays for Varsity inspection. Working from a single wingback formation, the Indians usually go on the warpath with a solid phalanx of blockers blazing the trail, and the coaches are busy devising strategy to keep MacLeod from breaking loose and at the same time not leave the secondary open to the best aerial attack Dartmouth has had since the advent of Coach Blaik. This is really quite a problem, but it is comforting to know that Blaik, too, has his worries.

Tim Russell weathered the Tuesday scrimmage, his first since the pre-season practice game in which he was injured, with no ill effects. The medical staff has definitely pronounced him ready for game action, and although he will not start, he will greatly strengthen the reserve forces at center.
