usually are obscured by the brilliance of backfield men but not Wright The six-foot pound gridder from N V had to click in the clutch before the Irish began to roll in the fashion expected of them in pre- season ratings Notre Dame was tied by sin and beaten by Georgia Tech in its first two starts Then Wright was given the duties and the field direction He ered in a big way as the Irish downed Stanford 27 to 0 and trampled the previously unbeaten Iowa Naval Cadets 28 to 0 Wright attempts to continue his magic touch as Notre Dame meets Illinois in the out- standing game As a sophomore Wright played fullback but didn't sec enough service to win a letter As a junior he was switched to quarterback and split the assignment with Bob Hargrave as Notre Dame went through its arduous nine gome schedule unbeaten Piloting a team through a season unmarred by defeat was proof of Wright's tactical talents but it didn't win him permanency of position Head Coach Frank Leahy saw greater need for Harry where and this season he was switched to Although the position was strange to him Wright was a cap- able performer in the first two starts but the team didn't click Then he was given the added burden of calling signals m an effort to restore the efficiency of Notre Dame's offense The records of the last two games speak for themselves as to Harry's ability to call the proper play at the proper time Wright is a gambler on the ball field He scorns orthodox methods in favor of the surprise Lou Gambino were being groomed i element Against the Iowa Cadets for his berth as the Hoosiers be-
