CLEAR WORDS OF HARLOW SPEED UP SLOW SCRIMMAGE

Average of Captain Easily Surpasses Others--His Services May Be Used by Backfield

By Donald B. Straus

Dick Harlow hates to see time wasted in practice, and his concept of wasting time doesn't allow much latitude. Every body on the squad realizes that now.

Yesterday's practice began at rather a sluggish tempo, comparatively speaking. Not that anyone was actually loafing, just that that certain spark which makes all the difference between a winning and losing ball club was missing. It might have been due to an early season let down, or the warm weather might have been to blame, but whatever the cause, the first dozen plays that team A ran against the third eleven in scrimmage failed to net ten yards.

"His Master's Voice"

Then Dick Harlow voiced a few of his opinions on wasting time in general, on pall-bearers and their place on the grid-iron in particular. He spoke in a modulated tone and his language was not strong, just very clear. Then the scrimmage recommenced and rapidly took on the aspect of a track meet. At its close, Harlow pronounced it a highly satisfactory workout. Nor are many more practices likely to begin sluggishly in the near future.

Allen Punts

In the punting drill, Captain Russ Allen stepped back from his guard position to boot a few. His average was easily the best of the day, and if he continues to punt well his services may be enlisted by the backfield quartet on third and fourth downs, as well as after touchdowns. It was he who kicked the crucial point after the second touchdown against Princeton last fall.

After yesterday's scrimmage, Allen was still favoring his injured log; but it is almost certain that he will be able to start against Brown.
