Phont CY 4-4326 Alpong, la LISTEN, MY CHILDREN AND you shall hear, Of a season called football that comes every year, When millions of people come out in the breezes To watch 22 men tear each other to pieces. The papers are filled with full page report, Of scores and predictions, and games of this sport. * * * I DEARLY LOVE FOOTBALL}'— YOU CAN count me a fan, But I'm dumb about It — this comes from my man. "What you know about football", he says with a sigh, "Could easily fit in one corner of your eye". He gets this impressioVi sometimes I know, "Cause I occasionally tell the wrong side to, "Go 1" ; *••••*•; . WHAT I LACK IN KNOWLEDGE, I make up In pep, But compared to the old days, I'm really quite hep. If you want me to prove it with, "Football,.by,Grace", : The fundamentals are that in the first place, I know now when a touchdown is scored,' I tell it by looking at signs on the board I * « • THERE ARE ELEVEN MEN on each football team. That's elementary, or so it would seetn, But once in a while a team gets 12 men, Then they lose some yardage and set moved back again. If guys who play football get mixed on this rule, And I know they're wrong ~- you can see I'm no fool! * » * ALL OF THE MEN on the field do not play. Some are officials, you tell them this Way — They wear striped shirts and they're balder on top, And fattet- in the middle and they blow whistles to,,stop, Ev Garbet of Algona was one of the best, ,' ' And now qualifies meeting the above outlined test. •'•',' * * * REFEREES HAVE HAY FEVER, or maybe a cold, -; They have red hankies that are hard to hold. They all the time drop them right on the ground, And toot their blamed whistles just when I've found What's going on — them most of the men, Go do something else and I'm mixqd up again. ' ( * • ' * t i • • GUARD, CENTER. AND ENDS, are positions I know, Then there's half-back and way.-back and educated toe. The players are rugged and the players are tough, • They're all huge in size and like to get rough. They look like their shoulders are bulging with muscle, But lots of it's padding, like Grandmother's bustle ! •' *i *. * • A BOY, PLAYING FOOTBALL forgets manners he was taught, Arid never says, "Excuse me", or "yoii first" like he ought. Pie pushes guys to the ground and gets mud on his shirt, Arid;butts with his head and rolls in the dirt,i tThe'more he acts rude and scotyUi like he's mwj, > ,' The, more it delights every student and grad i "'•• '•> '^'\ '"•>•' '•••': "" / ""'' '"«'•' * , * IF; YOU ARE WONDERING about the posts on the ends — Ohe; ; Btthfe-enemy's; the otherf-our Mends'; • s ' ->-«^But neither Wants company, nor Wonts to stay home," They want to go visiting, take,a ball when they roam I If they-manage to do this, the ref holds up his hands',' And a great noise goes up from one of the stands. ; • * * * IN FOOTBALL,.-THERE'S many a crash and a thud, And players go down in the ice or the mud. Arms, legs and helmets are seen in the middle, They all straighten out, then go into a huddle. What do they talk about there in the game ? I really don't know, but I'll bet it's a dame. + *. * ONE OF THE PARTS of the game I like best, Is the time when the players take a long res,t. The band salutes visitors right from the heart, Instead of yelling, "Tear them apart!" The baton twirlers strut and the majorettes prance, And warm up their bare little legs with a dance. > * • * * I'M REALLY QUITE PROUD of our quarterback and his henchmen, But I also think credit should go to the benchmen, ": Who behave themselves well and keep nice and clean, And sit as they're told and seldom act mean. And warm up the bench, until they get the nod Then rush into action and tear up the sod! * * * THERE IS A FAT CHANCE, that a gal named Grace, No sports writer will ever replace. And if I'm not hep to the plays, every one, At least I manage to have lots of fun. Though I'm fond of the sport, I might as well say it, I'm awfully glad, I don't have to play It! * * . * This week's recipe is about football in that it is the result of an intercepted pass. It is for Frozen Salad and Mrs Keith Christie was passing it to the new recipe book the Presbyterian women are compiling. I got my mitts on it, and here it is: 16 large marshmallows 1 can pineapple (either large or small depending on how well you like pineapple) Vs pt. cream, whipped 4 tabsp. mayonaise 1 can fruit cocktoil miniature marshmalliws sliced bananas Melt the large marshmallows in the pineapple and cool. Fold in whipped cream and inayonuise. Add fruit cocktail, bananas and miniature marshmallows and freeze. — GRACE.
