first call Monday they were greeted
by some of the best freshman material ever to sat foot on Stoll Field, and
that is saying a whole lot.
The men who will cavort with tho
yearlings this year did not come to
by nccideat. They
were told of this school, its many
good points, its athletic teams and
they were invited to cast their lot
at the Univerwith the eds and co-esity of Kentucky. The nice thing
about it all is that so many of the
invitations were accepted.
Confronted with a four game schedule this year, all of which promises
many hard contests, much is to be
.done before the yearlings take the
field for the first time. One big advantage lies in the fact that the first
game is not scheduled until October
12 giving the men ample time to get
ready for the contest.
Will Play Georgetown
The first battle, by the way, happens to be with Georgetown, always a
Jonah for the University of Kentucky
Kittens. It is a surprising fact that
Georgetown always gets the best; of
the Kentuekv first year men when the
.varsity teams of the rival schools are
never considered by sports writers as
being in the same class with the Wildcats. This year, however, Kitten supporters and the freshmen who will endeavor to get a berth on the team are

Vanderbilt always has a strong
freshman eleven and the Kittens will
oppose the Tennessee lads in the second game of the season, November 10.
Centre will be met November 17 and,
if the Danville frosh think of last
year, it will probably give them an
inferiority complex which will be a
big factor in helping the University
eleven. Tennessee at Lexington, November 24, will conclude the program,
according to the present schedule.
It is, of course, too early to make
any predictions as to the outcome of
the four contests, but to say the Kittens will win at least 50 per cent of
their games should be no exaggeration.
As for the men who will compose
this squad, the amount of space limits
to any great extent a survey of their
work but this is not necessary. Most

team had the most successful season
in the history if its existence during
the past summer session when it won
twelve games nnd lost none.
During the summer the dormitory
team played twelve games with different city teams who were members of the Twilight League and won
all of the games, most of them by
large scores and over some of the
strongest teams in the league. Due
to the fact that the baseball season
began before the summer session
opened and closed several weeks after
school was out is was impossible for
the dormitory team to become a member of the league and to play on the
regular schedule. All of the contests
in which the dormitory aggregation
participated were in the nature of
practice sessions for league teams,
but the relative showings made by
these teams placed the dormitory machine in a class by itself.
The dormitory team was made up
of picked players from the men students who resided at the dormitory.
Some of them were players of considerable experince, others were high

The latest addition to the coaching
staff of the University is Don Graham, famed passer and punter of the
University of' Iowa, who was graduated from that institution in 1925.
Graham played three years of varsity football at Iowa, beginning his
career in 1923. While a member of
the Iowa team, he was proclaimed by
all the sport writers as the best punter in the Big Ten conference. It was
his excellent kicking that kept the
Iowa team among the leaders of the
conference during those three years.
Since coming to Kentucky Graham
has been associated with Head Coach
Harry Gamage and is doing excellent
work in bringing out the punting possibilities of three men. Each day he
spends an hour or more with Covington, Brown and McElroy, teaching
them the correct method of sending
long high spirals down the field. The
men are improving each day under his
tutoring and by the time of the opening game on October 6 they should
be able to get off a few kicks that
will be a credit totheJnstructor.
After 1925, Mr. Graham worked on
his law degree and he is now a lawyer
by profession. The past summer he
studied aviation for a pastime and in
another year will have become a proficient airman.
He is the youngest
coach on the staff being only 23.
Graham fell right in line to the
method and system in which Gamage
is instructing his men, namely the
This is a big help
to the head coach as he does not need
to worry about efficient cooperation.
While at Iowa, Graham played under
Bert Ingwerson, who was formerly
freshman coach at Illinois and instructed that system at Iowa. Thus
when Graham came to Kentucky he
was familiar with the Illinois system and the one that Gamage is
teaching. Without any hesitation he
was able to assume his duties the
first day with the knowledge of what
he was supposed to do.

Witllf probably the hardest schedule

facing them, 35 panting and sweating
footbnll men arc going through their
paces daily. Coach Gamage and the
athletic board have arranged such a
list of formidable foes that even the
most optimistic supporters are growing wary.
Although fewer games will be played this year than last, the schedule-i- s
more imposing than any of its predecessors. This is due not only to the
greatness of some of our opponents
but also to the fact that there is not
a single "set up" In the array. Several teams, including Florida, Kentucky Wesleyan and Maryville, have
been dropped, while others, such as

The Southern Conference looms up
large in the eyes of Kentucky supporters because the Wildcats will engage five "S. C." teams this fall. The
first of these will be at home against
Washington and Lee, and the "Fighting Generals" are sending out a

season form; Alabama looked on as
one of the South's best bets, and Tennessee, who should have one of the
greatest teams in the country if their
freshman victories of the last year
mean anything, .'are .those three teams.
The games that will be looked forward to most of all however, are the
and Centre battles.
Chicago will be hosts to the 'Cats on
October 20, and many are planning to
visit the "Windy City" on this occasion. A victory over Northwestern will mean much to Kentucky and
the boys have their hearts set on
this northern Invasion. Of course the
Centre game will draw quite a few
football enthusiasts because of Homecoming Day which falls on this date.
The traditional game ended disasColonels
