' THE YONCOPIN THE GAME OF LIFE Bill Jones had been the shining star upon his college team; His tackling was ferocious and his bucking was a dream. When husky William tucked the ball beneath his brawny arm, They had a special man to ring the ambulance alarm. Bill hit the line and ran the ends like some mad bull amuck; The other side would shiver when they saw him start to buck; And when a rival tackier tried to block his dashing pace, His first thought was a train of cars had waltzed across his face. Bill had the speed — Bill had the weight — the nerve to never yield; From goal to goal he whizzed along while fragments strewed the field — And there had been a standing bet, which no one tried to call, That he would gain his distance through a ten foot granite wall. When he wound up his college course, each student ' s heart was sore; They wept to think that husky Bill would hit the line no more; Not so with William — in his dreams he saw the field of fame, Where he would buck to glory in the swirl of Life ' s big game. He tried to run the ends of life, when lo! with vicious toss A bill collector tackled him and threw him for a loss; And when he switched his course again and crashed into the line, The massive guard named Failure did a two-step on his spine. Bill tried to punt out of the rut, but ere he turned the trick Right tackle Competition tumbled through and blocked the kick; And when he tackled at Success in one long, vicious bound, The fullback Disappointment steered his features in the ground. But one day, when across the field of Fame, the goal seemed dim, The wise old coach, Experience came up and spoke to him, " Old Boy, " he said, " The main point now before you win your bout Is keep on bucking Failure till you ' ve worn the lobster out. " Cut out his work around the ends — go in there low and hard — Just put your eyes upon the goal and start there yard by yard; And more than all when you are thrown or tumbled with a crack, Don ' t lie there whining; hustle up and keep on coming back. " Keep coming back for all you ' ve got, and take it with a grin When Disappointment trips you up or Failure barks your shin. Keep on coming back and if at last you lose the game of Right, Let those that whipped you know at least, they too, have had a fight. " Keep coming back; and though the world may romp across your spine, Let every game ' s end find you still upon the battling line. For when the one Great Scorer comes to write against your name, He marks — not that you won or lost — but how you played the Game. " Such is alumnus Football on the whitechalked field of life; You find the bread line hard to buck, while sorrow crowns the strife; But in the fight for name and fame among the world-wide clan, " There goes the victor " sinks to naught before " There goes a Man. " — Grantland Rice. 174

First the two pitching aces, Stewart and Davis, have proved their ability in years here-to-fore, and " Two-Gun " Price of last year ' s Junior Gents has an unlim- ited assortment of stuff. The catching staff, Binion and May, constitute a pair of aggressive and fast thinking athletes. The infield from third on around, namely, Lindsey, Smith, Allday, and Crawford, have shown in the exhibition games that they can deliver the goods, or in other words " go get ' em in all directions. " Smith and Allday form a lightning double play combination around second. In the outfield Beam in left, Boydston, center and Connell in right, have been snatching fly balls in a graceful manner. Clanton, as utility outfielder has more than proved his value by delivering in the pinches as a real slugger. Duckworih, Hughes, Scales, and Meyers are other hard working men who strive conscientiously for the team ' s suc- cess. In actual battle the Gents have come from behind several times to win the game, and with this spirit, linked together with the flawless coaching of Coach Norton, only the worst kind of luck can spoil a successful year. 176
