In the main street stood a large crowd of citizens gathered around a platform from which came the voice of the Mayor, hnishing a speech: "And now, citizens of Stoneville, I hope you see the necessity of a col- lege in our town, and I am sure you will all contribute to this-er-a-- place of education. I thank you." The speech had its effect, and within a month fifty acres of land and the sum of 359,677.25 had been contributed. Four months later the headlines of the Stoneville Gazette ran like this: "Stoneville College to Open Septem- ber 1S." On the opening day the building was crowded, and a tougher lot could not be found. The collegians consisted of tough cowpunchers, cattle rust- lers, cattle thieves, hold-up men, and a few blacksmiths. Most of them came through curiosity rather than to seek knowledge. After the names had been taken, books discussed, and a fight stopped, the professor asked, "Now how many of you are going out for football?" KNO answerj "I-Iow many of you know what football is?" After a slight hesitation a husky fellow jumped to his feet and said, f'Yeah, we've read about it, and don't you think we'll risk our lives playing such a game." 4 The professor finally made them understand that football wasn't as rough as throwing steers and breaking in wild horses. After further dis- cussion everyone wanted to play football. Due to lack of finances the boys made their own uniforms. Rope coiled to lit the head, sewed together and covered with cloth, served as headgear. Old sweaters dyed black, pants made of canvas and padded with stiff leather, and old shoes with homemade leather cleats completed their rough but re- liable uniforms. Before long, Jones could tackle as easily as he could throw a steer, and Smith was the swiftest runner in Stoneville. After due practice the team mounted horses and rode nineteen miles to Crowsburg to play a supposedly much stronger team. Of course they were laughed at but that was nothing. Stoneville made a touchdown on the first kick-off, and there is little to be told about the game except the score-Stoneville 67, Crowsburg 0. Robert Bocock, '34, as
