Practice for these were upon the dummies at first. The third day most of the fundamentals Just mentioned were performed at full speed as well as every day thereafter. The first actual scrimmage was held the fourth day. This was during the eighth session of the week. A hard rain and muddy field were fine for such an occasion whereby it was practically Impossible to develop injuries. Most of the work for this scrimmage was addressed as offense. Offensive teams were used against the weaker defensive men on the squad. Nothing would be so ruinous as to place two matched teams against each other, especially when certain offensive ideas were trying to be carried out. Being forced to compare the 1930 team with that of last year I would say that first, fifty percent of its success will depend upon the success, and failures of their opponents. We must remember that there Is also another team on the field of play during each battle with equal rights to victory. Our 1930 team will not be the defensive team that represented the blue and white last year. If serious Injuries do not handicap our best ball car rlers it will be more Interesting to .watch an offense, viz: with the ball in their position. It is doubtful of being able to accomplish any great-- i er feats than those of the 1929 ag- gregatlon. "POOR" FARMERS PREFER CARS TO HOME COMFORTS i CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.
