LEESBURG - Leesburg high school football warriors returned to town today tanned and hard as nails
from the efforts of ten days strenuous training at Rotary camp at Eaton's Beach. Cots, shoes, uniforms,
footballs and groceries piled up on the high steps as the trucks discharged their loads and the men
made ready to sort out their belongings and got back to home and mother.

The Yellow Jackets all showed signs of the strenuousness of the pre-season training camp.
Mercurochrome was the rampant color, and old man "Dummy's" groans resounded on the campus as
he was tenderly lifted from the truck and placed gently on the green grass for the first time in several
days. In a private interview later in the day, he stated that "if she Yellowjackets kept on tackling the way
they had been tackling me lately their opponents are not going to be able to carry that pigskin very far
towards a touchdown. Of course I am new to this game as this is my first year and from the way I feel
now I am afraid it will be my last."

Coach Banning, who returned with the men, stated that he believed that every man was in splendid
condition and that he felt sure the camp had prepared the squad in "such a manner as would show
wonderful results as the season advances."

Capt. Ling, who has been handling the quarterback, position seems to be developing into a worthy
successor to Grey, who played the position last year. He is receiving special Coaching as the pivotal
job is the one real vacancy on this season's outfit.     1   of   2
