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
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.

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
