THE DOPE: The Titans must rebuild their line from tackle to tackle with sophomores and 1955 reserves. Coach Wally Fromhart has found backfield help among service returnees, so, barring collapse of the untried interior linemen, the Titans should move well by land or by air. The defense, seventh-best in the nation last season, will be off appreciably this year.
