WHAT'S A FOOTBALL GAME? Well, just what is one? It's the place you wear your best clothes so people will see how "ritzy" you are. You arrive late, go down at the half for a hot dog, not to mention quarters, and leave early to show off the new outfit. It's the place the Girl Reserves have charge of a con-cefision stand and make money off people just likle yourself. It's you paying a dime for a coke and wondering why you do. It's you catching cold because when it's hot, you're dressed for a blizzard. It's the place you sit in the north sec- tion of the bleachers 'cause you're a Wel- lington High student. It's you screaming at the top of your voice and wake up the next morning with a sore throat. l It's the place you miss all the best plays on the field 'cause you were watch- ing the upperclassmen. They're better en- tertainment anyway. It's you getting your shoes dirty. It's the place you say, "Why d0esn't the student body show more pep ?" It's the place you've been going for six years and still have no idea what the rules are all about. It's you practicing the whole afternoon to be round-shouldered. , It's the place the townspeople "boo" and the student body gets the blame. It's the place somebody gets to shoot a gun. It's the place you jump up if you feel like it but shout "Down in front" if anyone else does it. It's a place where you talk about every- thing except football. It's the place you "Don't see how she ever got a date with him", or "What does he see in her?" A It's the place the band marches at the half but you're too busy to notice. It's crazy. It's America. It's football. BENCH WARMERS It was the night of the last home game and every sub knew that if he got in he could win it himself. Suddenly the coach yelled and every bench warmer was awak- ened from his reverietHey you! Me, coach? Start warming up. I may want you. Sure coach. . . Gee, maybe I'll get in the game after all. -+ Up Down A Up Down One Two One Two, G0 in now? No! Keep warming up. If you don't you'll get stiff and won't be able to run. Sure, coach. . . I wish I was playing on the first team instead of Bill. But he won't play next year and I'm starting every game. Gee, he missed his man a mile. Now if I were in there I'd have him. I'd block out two or three guys every time and we'd win. Gee, ten seconds left to play. I'm warmed up now, coach. Shall I go in? No, not yet. Warm up some more. Yeh, coach. . . I'd get out there and block the only man between the quarter- back and the goal. BANG!!! . Was that the gun? Gosh, I didn't get to play after all. CAP'N EDGAH Yes, itis true. Faithful Edgar Henson, the squad's eighth grade shadow, lost his luck charm which was an expensive exper- iment for the team. Thanksgiving morning a hat went the rounds, gathering in enough pennies to let every player rub his hand over Edg1ar'srstiff short hair-a sure sign of vic- tory over the Bulldogs. But alas, it failed. Was it Edgah? Had he hoodooed them? As soon as the boys re- turned from Ark City, a posse was organ- ized and a search for the imposter begun. At least they could try the money back prop- osition, but just then Edgah strutted out the door of the Lyric and into their arms, penniless but ahead one picture show, candy, ice cream, and all one happy smile.
