[fL Tech Terror and Tattler Jn The Farsity Track Meet The day was beautiful, and ideal for a track meet with a liglit snow falling from the heavy clouds gathered overhead. The beams of the mid-summer sun drew sparkles and vari-colored lights from the hanging icicles. The knee deep mud which covered the track forecasted the breaking of many records, legs, and heads. The Commerce team which trotted on the field boasted of many well-known stars. Captain " Muddy " Watters held the endurance pencil sharpening record by a tune of three hundred and forty-eight per minute. The team immediately began limbering up by adding up a few columns of figures and chasing butterflies about the field. The Mechanicals next arrived, headed by their captain. Uncle Si. After a rub- down with castor oil by their trainer, Uncle Heinle, a lecture was delivered by their captain on the art of catching rats. The Eleetrieals arrived in high spirits. Sing Song Elson was expected to take the gum-chewing contest in a walk, and Captain Fitzgerald had a covetous eye on the javelin and shot-putting honors. ' ' Kid ' ' Seidell was their best bet for the high jump. The Civils entered a one-man team with " Tommy ' Branch holding the place of honor. At VanderbUt he was recognized as the fastest man in college. The other man was crippled, and did not go out much. Representing the Ex Easys was ' ' Fatty ' ' King in the hundred yard run, ' ' Dar3- devil " Howell in the pole vault, and " Hardboiled " McEver in the shotput. Watev- boy Stakely read lab reports to them while waiting for the start. " Daredevil " Howell ran an efficiency test on his pole to be sure that he would uphold his reputation as a vaulter, while Stakely slyly fixed Sergeant Brass ' pole with a hack saw. " Bo Cat " was expected to uphold the honor of the mathematicians with his ' ' flivver ' ' in the fifty yard endurance run and in the steeple chase. Friend Stamy entered the shotput and hammer throw, while D. M. was counting on taking all sling- ing the bull honors. The other departments were all represented by strong teams and the competition promised to be intense. At promptly two P. M. the events started. At the sound of the gun for the hundred yard run, Major Pendleton absentmind- edly dug himself in, thus spoiling the Military Department ' s chances in this event. " Fatty " King won this event for the Ex Easys with " Muddy " Watters running a close second. In the next event Major Pendleton redeemed himself by beating Friend Stani} ' at the shotput. The hammer throw was taken by Mr. Thompson for the Mechanicals. Uncle Heinle and Uncle Billy were green with envy but gamely gave three " Hurrahs " for the winner. The competition for the Bull Slinging was very keen and finally the judges de- clared a tie between D. M., " Sis " Grether, " Froggie, " and John Staton, (the only student entrant in the meet.) " Daredevil " Howell, with his delightful sense of humor, cunningly placed a magnet behind ' ' Bo Cat ' s ' ' Ford, thus holding it back and allowing ' ' Big Doc ' ' to win the fifty yard endurance run. " Bo Cat " folded his flivver up and took it home in disgust, Froggie consented to take his place in the remaining events. Due to the inclement weather, however, the remaining events were called oft ' , to be con- tinued next year. Three Hundred and Fifty-six
