"The programs pour into my home from September to January, all sent gratis through the kindness of publicity and athletic directors," he says.

"It is always a thrill to receive a program from such a place as Bowling Green, Colby, Earlham or Geneva. "Prices range from a nickel to 50 cents, Yale and Notre Dame pulling out the eo.sllie.st.
