"Two years ago Larry Leavitt, Dartmouth, fullback, gave a striking illustration of what sheer courage will do. We had gone up against a team that displayed unexpected ability. Leavitt was not in the best physical shape, and we were holding him back for what we considered more important game. Toward the end of the last half,,however, the score g was a tie, and the ball was in our possession in the middle of the field. Leavitt Wouldn't Quit "Leavitt begged to be sent in. He was.

Mr. Danforth, recognized as one of the leading football authorities of the South, was formerly sporting editor of The Herald.

One might as weir take the Kentucky Wildcats right now as club in the autumn gridiron race. a With 16 letter winners and at least 15 sophomores out on Stoll field every day, with a schedule that will demand hard play, every week,i the Blue is. m for the best season in years. Kentucky lost Kirwan and Tracy from the backfield, and! King, Van Meter, Rice and Cammack from the line. That is relatively a very small number. Besides, these days it is not so much what has been lost as what is left. And the leavings at Stoll Feld are pretty rich in good football men.

' A strong reserve squad and possibly a regular or two can be furnished by the freshman graduates. Tire team as a whole should be capable of putting a lot of pressure on any opposing set of forwards when it really bears down. Kentucky gets away to a late start, which will give the of a sort before their coaches ample time tq develop opening game. The Wildcats play Maryville October 2, then a week later Indiana in Bloomington. With that much preliminary playing Kentucky hops into a Conference schedule, meeting Washington & Lee, Florida, V.P.I., Alabama, V.M.I. and Tennessee. The Centre game, which is the state classic by tradition, is scheduled the Saturday before Thanksgiving, indicating in a small measure how lightly Kentucky is taking the Colonels this season. MAY CRAMP STYLE The schedule has the bad feature of heavy mileage and that may cramp the Wildcats style no little bit. Just why some of the "big games were not scheduled in Lexington may be a source of wonder to the home folks. Still, in view of the big squad, Kentucky is fairly well fixed for the series of s stands.
