Princeton Coach, Game Movies To Appear on 'Omnibus' Sunday

Shown in Boston Next Week

By Andrew W. Bingham

Princeton football coach Charlie Caldwell will analyze filmed portions of today's game with Harvard on a nationally televised program tomorrow evening. The scenes will be part of a special feature on ABC's "Omnibus" examining football and its evolution over the last half century.

Written and produced by two Harvardmen--Andrew K. Lewis '49 and Robert Saudek '32--the feature will be televised in Boston a week from tomorrow, when it will appear on a WBZ-TV kinescope between 2:30 and 4 p.m. The New York area, however, will get the feature live this Sunday night on Channel 7. It will be part of the regular "Omnibus" show, between 9 and 10:30 p.m.

Narrated by Princeton graduate Bud Palmer, the feature will conclude that "the day of the six-foot dumb ox in football is over," William Suchmann "Omnibus" program editor, said last night.

To prove just how demanding modern football is, both physically and mentally, Caldwell will review with the Princeton team, movies of today's game, giving each player a grade for his performance. Like Princeton's academic grading system, the marks will range from 1 (excellent) to 7 (failing).

"I hope the analysis will show why Princeton won the game," Suchmann--a Princeton graduate--said. "Practically everybody else around "Omnibus" wants Harvard to win, but they don't want to ruin the show either."

Three cameras from New York's WABC-TV will be used in Priceton's Dillon gymnasium, including one with a special lens capable of picking up the movies from the same screen which the players will be watching.

Aside from Caldwell's analysis, a oneminute film of a 1911 Princeton game will be shown for contrast. Palmer will also show various uniforms to illustrate how they have changed since football's early days.
