THE DOPE: The Lord Jeffs look to be the weakest of the Little Three teams, but Coach John McLaughry isn't conceding a thing. He says that "Amherst is optimistic, and the team may fool a few people." If the Lord Jeffs are to spring any surprises they will have to be as the result of a stiffened defense, especially against passes, where the team has been weakest. Even with an improved defense in its armory, Amherst's next best bet for a successful season appears to lie in the offensive play of a 175-pound junior halfback, Hutch Tibbetts. Another topnotch player is Captain Bob King, a center who can go well both ways. End Pete Jenkins heads a strong delegation on the wings. Given a few breaks, the team could make trouble for someone, but they face a rough road in their last four games and will have difficulty breaking even over the season.
