THE DOPE: The Cowboys are once again humming Happy Days are Here Again as they look forward to retaining the Skyline Conference lead. The middle line revolves around scrappy, 5-foot-9, 176-pound Captain-Guard Len Kuczewski (29-year-old father). The rest of the pony-sized linemen, defensive leaders of the conference last year, are all compact, quick chargers, with Tackles Howard Colling 202 pounds and Dick Schnell 200 pounds, the Gullivers of the line. Coach Bob Devaney's unbalanced line—-multiple offense—is commanded by imaginative play-caller Jim Walden, an elusive-running but seldom-throwing quarterback. Halfbacks Jerry Hill (195 pounds) and Dick Hamilton form the crux of a forceful ground game. But even though the Cowboys are stronger defensively and have a more substantial running game than last season, they are pig-tied by a lack of good pass-catching ends and sure-throwing quarterbacks.
