Football Fanatics Face Fallow Fall, Foresees Harlow

Spring Practice Indicates Lean Year Ahead; Not Much Help From Returnees Looked For

By Wallace I. Green

To those men who've already bought their Harvard banners and have their Saturday dates lined up for next fall, all that can be said is this: "The team will play football next fall; as to how well it will play, the outlook is not overly encouraging."

The spring practice session revealed little that made Coach Dick Harlow stand up and take notice. A slight touch of brilliance where it wasn't expected was shown, however, by Gibby Warren and Dave Farrell, both of whom were performing in the backfield.

The team, of course, is still in embryo form, no one having an inside track on any position, though Harlow proclaims unflinchingly that Ned Dewey will be a regular, whether it be at guard, fullback, or center.

The bulk of the team will have to be made up of men from last year's squad. Returnees, who played on the 1942 team, the last year of formal ball, are few and far between. Cleo O'Donnell, elected captain at the end of that season, will be back. So will Len Cummings, an end, and possibly guard Sid Smith. Willo and Jack Fisher will be around too. But that's just about all, with the possible exception of Wally Flynn and Pete Garland.
