Available THE KENTUCKY KERNEL PAGE FIVE OLE Believe Wildcats Have Good Chance To Top Conference r . By OLE TIMER in The Atlanta Journal The Kentucky Wildcats reported for practice Monday, September 8, one week later than most of the conference squad.-;Tuesday they were going at their work hammer and tongs and Thursday they were scrimmaging. That is what I call wading in at high speed. Coach Harry Carnage said he called them to order a week later than most of his opponents because he saw no special gain in beginning September 1, but the boys were ordered to show up with their legs in good condition. "I was sure they would follow that instruction because they knew the work they would plunge into would go very hard with them if they didn't, and an athlete cannot get his legs in shape without putting the rest of himself in trim also," explained the young mentor who in appearance combines the best features of a movie idol and .
