COLOR: Oak green.

BASIC OFFENSE: V-system—basically the T with fullback used as blocker between guard and tackle.

1955 RECORD: Won 3, lost 6.

LETTERMEN RETURNING: 15 of 31.

WATCH FOR: Monte Pascoe, E; Bob Adelizzi, C; Bob Rex, B; Lou Rovero, B.

THE DOPE: The Indians will field a fairly strong first team and thus can be rated a conference dark horse. Yet the absence of a proved passer and adequate subs may keep Dartmouth at the bottom of the Ivy first division. Coach Bob Blackman will center his attack on a running game built around Halfback Lou Rovero, the leading Indian ground-gainer last year, and Jim Burke, a sophomore breakaway runner. Blackman intends to use Captain Bob Rex primarily as the blocking fullback, but he will handle the ball just often enough to diversify the attack.
