The sturdy and capable-looking young men on the opposite page have a special meaning for tough-talking Henry R. (Red) Sanders, coach of UCLA's highly ranked Bruins. They are the starting backfield of the University of Maryland, which on Sept. 24 meets UCLA in the first big inter-sectional clash of the year.

He turned contemptuously for the showers. Not a man dared laugh.
