And the pep with which this new venture is being received in the Kentucky camp bespeak.? evil things for the scrub team foes. With such for midable opposition, tho reserves will be hard pressed to annex four victories in a row, but this is just what V.inVtfcaf they intend to do Tf the reserves don't mean business, just wander over to Stoll Field some sunny afternoon and listen. The third team has already adopted "On to Morehead." as they war cry and this ' thrilling phrase is uttered many times during the daily workouts by enthusons of Kensiastic, lusty-lunge- d tucky. Personnel of Team And about the personnel of this team. The varsity man's reserve squad proper, that is, all of the men to be carried on the various road trips, will number about twenty-fiv- e athletes. The remainder of the candidates will compose the reserve squad. Supplementing the lesser luminaries of the Blue and White outfit who are not quite good enough for the varsity, will bo a number of, husky warriors who, for some reason are not eligible for the big games. These will include men who are ineligible because of scholarship and a few who are barred by a Southern Conference ruling concerning men who have won letters in football at Releother colleges and universities. gated to the reserve squad also are several gridiron heroes who ran amuck of the powers that be by not attending practice last spring as they were directed to do. Personnel Not Constant Another feature point about this reserve team idea, is that tho personnels of the varsity and reserve This just squads are not constant. means that if a fellow works hard and shows enough improvement, he will be promoted to the varsity. At the same time, every member of the var sity is in danger of demotion if his playing becomes lax in any respect. These conditions, together with the fact that a large squaii has been training twico daily :nce September 3, give promise that the reserve team will present an effective combination for the opening day affair. One of Coach Gamage's principal objects in establishing a reserve team was to enlarge his squad of aspirants for pigskin honors. He believes that by offering the scrubs an opportunity to play in a regular scheduled game many men who realize that they are not capable of making the varsity in their first effort may be persuaded to eomo out and try for the squad. In this wayi Gamago hopes to have a number of "discoveries" who otherwise would be lost to the team. Make Four Trips Kentucky's reserve team, which is ono of tho first such aggregations in the South, will also pvovide several nice trips for the players and partly repay them for their sacrifices and effort! for the University. All of the reserve games are scheduled on tho same day as a varsity game, but they aro all away from home and tho horaofolk would not be ablo to Etc the "scrubs" in action anyway. It is not definitely decided which member of tho coaching staff will have charge of the reserve team, but in all prob ability this duty will fall upon tho capable shoulders of either Mauer or Shively.
