We've been careful not to
mention Walt much this season

Ordinarily you'd expect a ball
carrying specialist, for whom the
other boys clear the way, to be
something like the on featured
in "The Spirit of Notre Dame,"
willing to grab all the glory and
going out of his way to gather in
more. We guess the public around
here knows there's nothing of
that style about Erickson. That's
just sn added reason for his pop
No doubt that's also the rea
son the boys are always ready
to cut holes for Walt to drive
through. Of course this year
he's not the only ball carrier in
there; he gets to do some hole
cutting for the others. But if
it hadn't been for Erickson,
Willamette's record the last
three seasons would undoubt
edly have been something quite
different. And that's why we're
making; an exception this morn-
lng and giving; some credit to a
fellow who gets lots of it any
the regulars. The popular suppo
sition is that this is done princip
ally to save the regulars for a
scoring drive when they will have
the advantage of freshness over
the opposition. Another much
stressed factor is that the opposi
tion may be demoralized on see
ing the big stars come on the
field after the lesser players have
held them even.
Both of these things -are true
but the chief reason for letting
the first string men be spectators
at the opening of the game, is to
give them, a chance to size up the
enemy's defense while the coach
and quarterback map out a cam
paign of attack based on what
It Is probably unnecessary to
add that it Is fatal to send shock
troops into a close game unless
they are practically as good as
the regulars on defense, and have
a good punter.
