ton University football team next year,
Rush's experlonco in athletics came aa

favored game he was the speediest man
in the country. With his appointment
the old question arises! Will a theorist
be able to Impart his knowledge to a

athletes out of the men Intrusted to

knowledge handicap hlmT To all of
which we reply, We believe not I A
theorist is very likely to know more
about a game that Is his hobby than
the man who is practical. Cases too
numerous to mention aro to be referred
to as proof. Coach Rush just at pres

future. Wo sincerely bellev if he Is
