THE ADDED TOUCH The performance of the TWIRLERS before Davis football games has come to be almost as much a part of the Saturday afternoon scene as the game itself. The strutting of the 30-odd twirlers about the field, manip- ulating their batons in graceful fashion, presents a strik- ing picture. As a preliminary to the game the grace and finesse exhibited by the twirlers contrasts vividly with the oncoming tussle of titans. It adds variety to the program, for as Shakespeare once said: "Variety is the spice of a football ga - - " er - - well. he said something. Anyway. rain or shine, the twirlers are out there enter- taining the crowd and paving the way to the big event with their fancy prancin' and skillful swingin' of the baton. However, their activities are not confined strictly to the football field. A few members will occasionally assume the garb and gadgets of the trade and go through a few antics to liven up an assembly program or to add zing to a football rally. In this capacity, they lent their efforts on February 4 of this year to the 4th War Loan Drive. The occasion was a program put on by Davis students at Proctor's Theatre, which succeeded in raising over 536,000 in war bond subscriptions. The twirlers also participat'e in parades where they make up an important part of the Davis exhibition. This year, for example, they strutted their stuff in a parade which opened the Third War Loan Drive. IDENTIFICATION- CLower Leftj Row 'lz ll. Beinert. D. Knoepke. I-I. Sprague. J. Stickles. .I.

Very often the onlooker at a football game has diffi- culty following the imbroglio that ensues after a quarter- back calls for a line plunge, or during a punt runback. This is especially true when the action is going on at the opposite end of the Held. I-lowever. Davisites have learned to overcome this difficulty by glancing toward the north end of the field where big whit'e numbers on a red background keep them informed of the "vital statistics." As you may well imagine, these numbers don't jump into the appropriate slots by themselves. For in back of the scoreboard we have the SCORE- BOARD SQUAD. a group of boys whose job- it is to report quickly and accurately from their remote position the results of the play. The secret of their efficiency lies in keeping a man at the sidelines right on top of the play, who lets them know just what happened by a system of signals. This signal relay usually works fast enough so that' by the time the grandstander looks to the scoreboard for help, the number of yards gained or lost has already been posted. Part of the enjoyment of a football game lies in following each play closely. A yard or two often means the difference between a first down and giving up pos- session of the ball. With the aid of the scoreboard squad the onlookers are able to interpret these details for a more complete understanding and appreciation of the game. IDENTIFICATION- fUpper Rightl A. Byers. D.
