l'lic day came for the awarding of the P’s. Thus far in Guilly’s life there had been four great events—his first tooth, his learning to swim, his first pair of long trousers, and graduation from High School. Put the ccstacy of this new event was above and beyond them all. When the coach called. “Guilielmus Granby!" and he stepped forward to receive the long-desired reward, and the students cheered him. a thrill went thru his whole body. And, of course. Mommer Granby was also the recipient of a big letter the next day, but of a different kind.
Thereafter Guilly became a favorite of the ladies. Now with many boys of less stability this would have been their undoing. Put not so with Guilielmus. lie was. we are forced to admit, just a little bashful, but then, too, he was as anxious to get all Y G’s and I'.’s the first quarter as he had been to make the football squad. However, he found it quite difficult to keep out of the way of those who desired him as a steady. For, believe uie, when boys are one to six they are much in demand and a football hero is at a high premium, indeed. So, much to Guilly‘s discomfort, a denizen of the Dormitory lurked in every hiding place, eager to seize upon the coveted hero. Our picture shows us one of these hair-breadth escapes.

Guilly had never seen a real football game. In Poseyville they had no athletics worthy of the name, and altho he was proficient as could be in pull-a-way, red-line, and crack-the-whip, his knowledge of good scientific athletics was very meager indeed. But Guiliehnus had beef and bone in his favor and it did not require a great deal of coaxing on the part of his newly-found friends to get him to register as one of the football recruits. The first night the coach pointed to the half-back-on the opposite line and said, ‘That's your man— now when the rush conies you down him.” Poor Guilly was used to taking people at their word, so in the charge he secured a half nelson and a scissors hold and downed his man.
In this and other ways Guillv's ignorance often came to the surface, but when the laugh was on him he took it good-naturedly and thus became a favorite of the whole squad.
Ilis interest in football did not stop with practice on the athletic field, but he even insisted on lining up his pals at the boarding house and learning new tricks from the lettered men. Then, oh, joy! On the sixteenth he substituted for a man in the Kearney game and made a gain of twenty yards. And this, with Popper and Monuner Granby in the grandstand! After that he played regular and was a man who could always be depended upon.

Well, Guilly made good the first quarter— every grade he sent home was VG or I '. Blit, like all of us, he began to think that he could get there the other three-quarters on his reputation. He began to sluff outside of class and to bluff inside the class room. He became a lounger in the lobbies and cloak room or a sight-seer out on the campus. Many were the snowball fights in which lie participated. He now became less afraid of the Dormitory amazons and spent many moments indulging in winter sports with them that should have been used in perusing Genetic Psychology. When the weather got too cold for this he determined to have his fun in the library. So he whispered to his neighbors; there was much sociability of which he was the center. The bell tapped but this only urged him on to greater efforts in this line. Then he became a ventriloquist so that the patrons of the library heard everywhere the voice of kittens or lap-dogs, much to their amusement, and to the discomfiture of the librarian. At last the latter called Guilly to her room and after a severe lecture, put him on probation. Now indeed lie was treading on thin ice, but Guilly was not to be thus deprived of his liberty. So one Thursday afternoon he kept open house six feet from the librarian’s table. Then she grew wroth and exiled him. with the proviso that he might come back when he would promise to behave himself. And, of course, with such a nature as Guilly’s, this was banishment for life.
