and the game goes on. 14. A close game — a held goal attempt — one of football ' s thrilling moments. If it is good the game is won. If it is wide or low, just another desperate effort failed. 15. The game is won or lost. Fans happy or disappointed file out of the stands, while little boys scramble up the goal posts for color souvenirs. 16. The cheering fans are gone, the excitement is over; the varsity man realizes he is bruised and weary as he wends his way to a welcome shower. 17. A bandage is taken off a sore shoulder; cuts and bruises are treated by Trainer Gibson. 18. A refreshing shower, but muscles are still tired and sore. 19. Refreshed he dresses for the street; realizing he is hungry he rushes to a late supper. 20. The schedule completed — uniforms are hung up. The crowds will cheer for Varsity no more this year. 21. Fo r the Sophomore, season ' s end means a Varsity " C " . With a year of exper- ience he will be of more value to the team next year. 22. For the Senior the last game of the season means an end of Varsity foot- ball. If he has been studious a cap, gown and diploma are his rewards. 23. He can ' t forget those glorious days when he was the star of the team. He always comes back to see how his position is being filled. Alma Mater is proud of her old gridiron stars and honors them with introductions to the fans on Homecoming Day.

a c We Play Football ] . They were all high school stars. Hav- ing proven that they can take it by making their freshman numerals, they now dream of greater glory on the varsity as they view trophies won by the great teams of the past. 2. Their first practice — they watch the lettermen from last year strut their stuff, and pick up a few big time pointers. 3. Coach Parker decides to try one out. His buddy helps him with his helmet and wishes him the best of luck. 4. The publicity department makes pictures like this to show opposing teams and fans hew vicious the players are. 5. " Boy, how did they catch you like that. " More publicity stuff. 6. Fall — just before the first game. The reserves rub " Boot ' s " kinky locks for luck. 7. The whistle blows — the game is on. The opening kickoff is returned to mid-field as the cheerleaders wlfad up the rous- ing send-off. 8. A warm-up game— - varsity men take it easy, iounging on the sidelines while the reserves strut their stuff. 9. A hard game — the going gets rough — the reserves watch in strained silence as the regulars fight for touchdowns. 10. A boy is hurt — Trainer Gibson and Coach Parker rush on the field to look him over and ren- der first-aid. 11. It may be a bad in- jury — the loss of a gcod man for the rest of the season. In this case White- hurst is out for the rest of the game. 12. Or it may be a trick knee, that al- lows the boy to play but slows him up. 13. If the boy is able, he stays in.

" They also serve who only stand and wait, " with its deep significance describes somewhat the lot of the reserves. These men know football at its worst. Varsity players detest the druggery of daily practice, but get genuine enjoyment out of the games. The re- serves, shaded by other players in ability, are kept on the squad as an insurance against injuries. In order to be ready should their services be needed, they take part in the mid-week scrimmages to keep in condition, and when the going gets roughest are never spared because of the injury risk. Among this group may be a " dark horse " whom the coach has overlooked, and with the proper game experience may develop into a real star. The lightning failed to strike and these boys remained members of the reserves. Next year they will be out there fighting for one of the places left by graduating seniors. Harris, Mason, O ' Brien, Allen, Hanson. The Reserves and Freshmen The short and long of the Frosh squad. Coaches Parker, Hohman and Decker and fresh- men reserves watch the Frosh game. Making up in quality what they lacked in quantity the Junior Gents completed a four-game schedule with some success. The fourteen members that made up the squad of boys eligible for varsity competition reached the high spot on their schedule in defeating the Louis- iana Tech Bullpups, 19 to 6. They lost the other three games played. Members of the freshmen squad were: Tom Swirczyn- ski, Willard Coffey, and Claude Teel, ends; Morris Mc- Crary and Bill Reynolds, tackles; Eugene Holman, cen- ter; James Tucker and Johnnie Hendricksen, guards; Loyd Hearne, J. F. Wilkins, Cotton Barnes, Earl Spell, Maxie Fagan and Bob Barrie, backs.
