The ability of the Brooklyn Na

At Annapolis Folwell is likely to be
given a free hand with his men If
he can develop that team Into a win

out by Doble a year ago he will be
fully vindicated as a competent In

even in view of his failures at Penn

serious consequences for that team
not so much because Heisman is gone,
