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
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

thrilling phrase is uttered many times

Personnel of Team
And about the personnel of this
team. The varsity
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

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
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

"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

capable shoulders of either Mauer or
