B. J. Johnston and Bobby McVicker
have been acting as captains of the
two scrimmage football teams this
-week. Spring practice began last
■week with some scrimmaging and
quite a bit of passing. Last Monday
the squad met for organization and
for "skull" practice, skull practice
being the brains of football. Brains
\and brawn in equal parts are neces-
sary for good football, as everyone
knows. The activity period and an
hour or two later are being devoted
to spring practice every day when
the weather permits.
