R m I ' M Jordan ( i lach JUNIOR VARSITY FOOTBALL ■ The purpose of the Junior Varsity football squad is to supply likely candidates to the varsity. In 1934, the Jayvees did just that. Although they played only a three-game schedule and failed to win a single contest, several of the outstanding players were pushed up the line into prospective varsity jobs. One, Adrian Downey, was shorth alter the injury in lSiili Littlehale, varsity fullback, an outstanding contestant for I ' .nil ' s old job. Under Coach Ralph Jordan, the team played Maine Central Institute. Higgins Classical Institute, and the Freshmen during an abbreviated season. The Higgins game ended in a tie, bul M.( .1. was a 13-6 victor and the Frosh won by 12-6. The last game, with Phil Jones ' first-year eleven, was one of the classics of the season. But for a break of some slippery turf and a collision of the interference, the Jayvees might have won. For the better part of three periods, the two teams played On even terms. Then the Frosh broke awaj to score what later was the winning touchdown. The Jayvees recaptured the ball, however, and took up a drive into Frosh territory that was ended only when Ralph Beisel, with a clear field ahead, slipped and fell headlong into his interference to down the hall a few yards from tin- goal. The Frosh line held for the next four downs. The Junior Varsity team was composed mostly of men of former Freshman teams, nut of varsity class. Their style of play — as would appear (ibviiius -- was molded in forms laid down by varsity requirements. Coach Ralph Jordan learned his football under Knute Rockne at Notre Dame, but a shift at Maine combined the system with that of Maine ' s own Fred Brice. i he backfield, tor the most part, was light and - 1 1 1 1 1 \ . I he linemen varied according to the avail- able talent, and. although flaws were main, a vast improvement had been shown by the team as a whole as the end of the season drew near. The men put up a good tight against M.C.I. before losing, 12-6. Their showing against Higgins was even better. But the season ' s goal had still to he reached when the year was brought to a close against the Frosh. Such veterans as I > owney, Johnson, and Spald- ing, did the greater part of the team ' s ball-carrying. Johnson, in particular, handled capably the twin as- signments oi kicking and passing.

Under his coach, Ted Curtis, he made use of his every oppor- tunity . The 193S season was marked by the " discovery " by Coach Curtis oi Freshman Leon Greene. In his first year out, young Greene achieved several brilliant per- formances and finished the season one of the best men on the tram. Samuel Favor, Glendon Soule, I ' liil Bower, and several others turned in out- standing performances on the skis. In the snowshoe dash, an interesting competition between Lew Hardison and Phil Parsons of a war ago was relived by the brothers of the two. The younger Hardison, a Freshman, Waldo, lined up against the Junior, Parsons, Shirley, in the 1(X) vard dash. And history repeated itself in another victory for the Hardison family.

THE COMING SEASON Predicting season ' s victories for the Junior Varsity football team is about as accurate as picking winners in the English derby. Neither can be done with sue cess. The [unior Varsity depends for its lineup upon men who are not invited to return early in the fall for varsitj practice. Indeed, it is possible for almost am one t " get himself a uniform and " become " a member oi the Jayvees. When a man gets too good for his class he is automatically moved ahead to a position mi the Brice eleven, where, if he keeps up the pace, he is retained. ( onse- quently, the Jayvees boast no " stars. " Beisel will probably be back, Miniutti too. li Johnson continues the quarter- backing, the team will be strengthened over previous seasons. Dingwall, Morrison, Parsons, and Hutchins will be among the outstanding performers. The season sin mid he average. 21«J
