Coach Folwell of University of Penn

gram for Season.
Bob Folwell. who will endeavor to
restore football supremacy to the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, has an
nounced a program that Is radical.
He says that all students and others
will be welcome to witness the prac
tices of the eleven, that the training
and coaching systems will be open and
above board and that If the team falls
it will be his fault and not the fault
of the material, a manly, if not always
rational, point of view to take.
"My plans for preliminary work are
all completed," he said. "There need
be no curiosity about my training and
coaching system it will be exactly
the same as that which I used at La
fayette and Washington and Jefferson.

much drudgery is to be done. It won't
be enough to kill the team.
"There Is another important fact
that I wish to emphasize and It is
that there will be little secret practice
this season, and the gates will be open
at all times to the undergraduates iiA
the public. Uy practices will be some
thing unique, for I guess I am some
