Groundsmen and ticket takers may be filling in gaps in the Varsity eleven lineup next fall if the Harlow system has to fall back on the turnout to yesterday's opening session of summer grid conditioning.
Trainer Kimmy Cox was in front of Dillion Field House calling calisthenie signals, but only the straining figures of Tom Sullivan, Nicholas Athens, Pete Leavitt, and a bespectacled youth with a pea-shooter seemed to be manifesting any interest.
"I guess football players don't blossom in the summer," remarked Cox balancing delicately on one palm. By way of illustration, downfield on the Varsity baseball diamond, Chip Gannon was uncorking 150 yard passes. Standing behind home plate he was reaching centerfield with alarming consistency.
Net one to be daunied by numbers of their absence. Cox put his three musketeers through a stiff hour's workout.
