1955 RECORD: Won 2, lost 6, tied 1.


WATCH FOR: Art Katula, E; Dick Campbell, C; Jerre Carmody, B; Lee Hermsen, B.

THE DOPE: The Warriors are starting the season under new Head Coach Johnny Druze with no immediate hope of improving on last year's dismal record. Coach Druze explains: "We'll be long on fundamentals, short on talent and thin all over. But we could surprise a few teams with what we have." What Marquette has is an outstanding junior center by the name of Dick (Soup) Campbell, who stands 6 feet 1 and weighs 211 pounds, and Halfback Lee Hermsen, who was too light as a fullback but is expected to run well on the outside from his new position. Captain Art Katula at one end will also help, especially on defense. But Marquette is too thin and too inexperienced at almost every other position. If the Warriors can find some speed and consistent quarterbacking before the season is too far gone, Marquette might make a few winning noises. Yet the outlook is a poor one for Coach Johnny Druze who has too many holes to plug in his first year in Milwaukee.
