Drill, Drill, Drill and A Plunge In Weir Is Having Results

ROTARY CAMP, Eaton's Beach, Sept 2 (Special) - Curfew rang early tonight at Rotary Camp and 16
legs weary, tired football warriors settled down to a well earned night's rest. Six o'clock rolled around
almost too early for some of the Yellowjackets Friday morning, but Coach Banning heard the first bird
chirp and shortly afterwards his cherry "Hit the deck" and every one piling out on the beach for an
hour's setting up drill followed by a piping hot breakfast.

A hour's layoff for breakfast to get settled and then the real day started for the pigskin artists. Falling on
the ball, straightarming, zigzaging and live bait tackling kept them busy for two hours. A short wrestling
match with the new football rules, lunch and back at it again until 5 o'clock when every one fell into old
Lake Weir for a well enjoyed swim. Supper and a few jokes and a little "barbershop chords" and no
one made a single protest when Coach Banning shouted, "Lights out."

It is too early to size up any of the candidates individually but collectively the "gang" sure looks good.
Practically every man is in unusually good physical condition from the hard work of the summer
months. The disappearance of cigarettes, soda water and candy will make the hard work show up
quickly and before the camp is half over the Yellowjacks can be expected to be in mid-season form.

The first game will be played at home probably with Eustis high school and local football fans will
have a chance to see the Yellowjackets strut their stuff on Cooke Field. Greater enthusiasm seems to
exist this year than ever before and on every corner you hear football and the Pirates taking equally
prominent parts in conversations.
