THE LEVELER Football has come to be looked upon as one of the dramatic ways of indicating, if not meas- uring, certain differences between institutions. Just what these differences are it is diffcult to tell. Even the score board is mysterious, and sometimes difficult to read. Perhaps there is not much logic in the argument. Perhaps, too, this is neither the time nor the place for logic. Yet it has often come to me that, through football, many of the usually recog- nized external differences in institutions tend to disappear. What its football team is has no ap- parent relation to the age, size, location or character of the college or university. In particular, football pays no attention to geography. This afternoon, Purdue greets those who yesterday were more or less strangers. Today we count Centenary as belonging within our circle of lasting friendship. The rivalry of the grid- iron will lead to scores. Any unevenness is a passing incident. All teams are equal on the grid- iron, before the game. The inevitable law of sport levels all inequalities, after the game. Edward C. Elliott, President of Purdue University. Written on eve of Centenary-Purdue game. Expressions tell the story — Victory and Defeat. Dr. Edward C. Elliott, president of Purdue University, and President George S. Sexton of Centenary College, watching the Centenary-Purdue football game. Purdue won. This picture was made without the knowledge of the subjects.

DOLAN Wamsley FOOTBALL (Continued) Oliphant and Taylor, who are rounding out their gridiron careers next year, are the outstanding can- didates at the tackle berths. Both are experienced men and capable of holding up their side of the ques- tion. Gillory and Harper, sopho- mores, form the reserve strength for Oliphant and Taylor and no d oubt will see plenty of action as the tackles are scarce. The loss of Blanchard Johnson, the greatest guard ever to don a uniform for the Maroon and White team, will be greatly felt, but the coaches are attempting to allay this as much as possible by switching Bob Waters from a tackle position to the new post at guard. Tom Wilson, who played the guard position opposite Johnson last year, will be back this year to fight it out with Blakemore, letterman, Lumsden, and Brown, squad- man, Sellers, Ellerbe, and Smith, up from the Freshman ranks for his old position. The center position, which was the weak spot of last year ' s eleven, will be strengthened due to the experience gained by Singleton, Young and Ames, and another replacement, Fred Williams, up from the Freshman ranks who looks good. Cameron, Murff, Oslin, Smith, Townsend, are the varsity hold-overs and will get plenty of help from the incoming Freshmen, who include " Little " Parker, Glumac, Barn- hart, Clark, Sellers, Murphy, Stallcup.
