Jerniprau crashed through a pile of bodies to convert the extra point and put the Whites out in front, 1-0. '. But for a fumble Ihc Whites might have scored In the first quarter after Elliott whipped a pass to End Dick Shnnks, gaining first down on the Maroon 15. A minute •or two later, however, the Whites lost the ball when a Maroon player covered a fumble on the 22- yard line. Fullback Berry Allen, who played a whale' of a game for the Maroons, put his teammates into scoring position late in the first quarter with a 40-yard dnsh before he was pulled down on the While 22-yard line. Hcr c the White forwards set their cleats Into the 1 , soggy earth and smothered the threat.

Here urc excerpts from his more recent gems: "The shark looked us overT ni'st out of one eye, then the other, opened the biggest month I've evei seen, displayed the most teeth I've over looked at, took u bite at Ihe boat. __ "The Kefti'O was turning while 1 was turning blue, hill he swunr the mighty 25-pound sledge hammer.

"The tarpon got his tail under the gas line, ripped the carbureter off tiic engine before Hie fisherman snatched up a wrench, fell on the fish, and lying beside it on the deck beat his finny assailant to death in a welter of gore." Allyn tells of a fish gobbling two hooks simultaneously, and police be- ing called to .settle the argument between the mini and woman on the pier. Allyn doesn't confine himself to fishing. He even gives you a cure for a snake bite. ''The snake rattled, struck, Ihc fangs entering the fleshy part of Ihc hip. He cried out, grabljed the snake by the neck to pull it off, Luckily, his brother had In his hand a big cane knife, sharp as razor. "Another brother grabbed a smai! chicken, split It In half with on .troke of his knife. He quickly cut away the clothing from around the snake bite, slapjnid the warm chick- in on the spot. The chicken flesh turned green. "Agiiin and again he repeated the act, catching the chickens, ciutim; them In two, until he had used 10. and there was no more discoloring of the chicken flesh. All the time this had been going on. the brother who got bit, stood like a slatur holding Ihc, stiakc. which he choked to death in his hands." Allyn. who served aboard submarines In the South Pacific, l.s wasting his lime. He ought to be in pulp magazines, Allyn tells a lie a day. That's his job.
