general feeling locally thai critic j
from various quarters because of the
'poor showing of the Cougar team this
year may have been the cause of the
mentor's determination to seek new

"My ambition during my four years !
as coach at the state College has |
been to turn out real men, men ho

as to turn out a satisfactory football j
team," said Coach Welch. "I be- I
