DOC'S EMBRYO COACHES
NURSE H BRUISES
Strenuous Program Mapped for High
School Instructors Who Are
Taking Summer School
Work in Coaching
Sore shoulders and bruised "tum- 1
mies" are being nursed by some 28 |
summer school men as a result of
the gruelling football training under
"Doc" Bohler the past few days.
"Doc" is swamped this year with
high school instructors who desire
to add coaching to their stock in
trade and he is putting them through
a course of training that promises
to make real coaches of them in the
six weeks time allotted for the pro- j
cess. Thirty-five high school in
structors are enrolled in the basket
ball classes, while 28-are taking
training in football coaching and 24
embryo track coaches are on the
job. The football work is the most
strenuous of all and "Doc" makes
it doubly hazardous by tabooing
football suits and pads, working on
the theory that you don't need pads
to resist a force that is unpadded it
self. Whether or not this theory is
founded on fact is an open question,
but at any rate there is no "crab
bing" on the part of the coaches to
be and they are taking to the strenu
ous program in a manner that be
speaks ill to the high school-coaches
who are not taking advantage of
"Doc's" theoretical and practical I
This week the athletic mentor has
been devoting most of his attention !
to training the embryo football
coaches in the rudiments and funda
mental, of the game, falling on the
ball and fielding punts.
In all of his athletic coaching
classes he Is teaching correct form
for the various positions and meth
ods to be employed in properly con
ditioning the players. "Doc" is a
stickler for condition, and an analy
sis of the victories for the State Col
lege football teams during the past
10 years would very likely uncover
not a few that were due largely to
superior condition of the men.
"We have the biggest and best
classes in athletic coaching in the
history of the summer school," said
Director Bohler, "and every man is
apparently here to get everything he
can out of the training They are
willing workers and the results ob
tained fully justify the hard work
and expense attached to the program
CREW STARTS SURVEY

George 11. Shearer of the state
highway department, with a crew
of eight men, Tuesday started an of
ficial survey of the proposed Pull

eastern division of the Inland Em
pire highway. From a preliminary
Inspection of the highway Mr.
Shearer states that he hopes to es
tablish a shorter route, with a bet
ter grade, than any previous survey.
The appearance of the engineer and
crew has , resulted in materially

tion that the link will be completed
within the next two years. Mr.

A solution of the mooted garbage

; taurants and hotels thrice weekly.
j for a stated fee of $1.00 monthly
j for private residences, $2.00 month
! ly for sororities and fraternities and

tracts with the different residences,

year, and slates his willingness to
provide equipment for taking care
of the garbage in an adequate and
satisfactory manner, the citizens to
furnish the garbage cans.
While the signing id' a contract
