Junior Varsity Eleven Away To Slow Start for Dartmouth

Defense Good But Coaches Worry About Developing Squad Offensively

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Heading for their first game against the Dartmouth Junior varsity, a week from Friday, the jayvees are showing a decided development in their offensive power. Coaches Lamar and Hedblom are working against odds seldom having the same group of players together for any one practice, but they are beginning to develop a working unit.

In recent practices the team has shown a stubborn resistance to the varsity's offensive plays, which shows that the defensive play is reaching a high point of development. It is only recently, however, that the team has had an opportunity to form an attack. It is for this reason that the tentative game scheduled for last week had to be cancelled.

The best filled positions on the team are the flanking posts, where George Haydock, Bartow Kelly, Duncan Long cope, Perry Keats, "Sted" Steadman and George Duane are giving each other close competition.

Tackles who have shown merit are Hammy Wood, Ted Tewksbury, Al Jenkins, and Arnold Gale. The collections of guards shows two converted ends Gus Soule and Charlie Perkins, while Tudor Gardiner, Tom Lacey, Charlio Snyder, Edwards, and Toomey, who have been competing for the post already have shown that the jayvees can count on a strong center of the line. Especially is this so with centers of such near varsity material as Danny Cheever, and Tom Grover, but there are still other men, Hall, Ernie Miller, and Duff that have made the competition tough for them.

In spite of the outstanding merits of the line, the backfield has many able players which bodes well for good results during the season. Bucking back, the key position of all Harvard offensive play, is the position which offers the most competition. Here John Budlong, "Ace" Cordingly, Bill Brown, recently converted from the guard position. Tommy Bolger, a versatile, hard hitting back who also plays in the blocking position, and Tom Duane are the standouts.

The speed of the team is represented by such tailbacks as Pete Thompson, Fred Jaretzki, and Squibb, and by such wingbacks as Sherman Hoar, hard tackling and blocking Hurley, and Bill Tully, captain of last year's freshman team on which he played at the pivot position. The remainder of the list is made up by the blocking backs Red Townsend and Bill Tyng.
