Propst didn't attempt to dodgi around certain aspects of the college football picture or to paint a rosy picture of the life of colle- grldders. In fact, if anything, he did the very opposite.

In .other words Propst Insisted that boys who get Hie opportunity to go to college because of their unusual athletic ability should consider football as a means lo an end rather than consider their classes simply as a necessary adjunct to lliclr gridiron activities. Propst admitted it was easy for football fame to go to a boy's head and that the public, in view of Us adulation, shouldn't tiirn too much of a cold shoulder on the grid star after lie fades from the headlines. 3ut at the same lime.he warned hat such Is often the case and it's otnlrely up to the boy to keep Ills feet on the ground and use his head 3ft the well as on, ' The First Football Banquet A program of Blytheville's first 'ootball banquet was 'produced by Toastmaster Jesse Taylor at, last light's affair.
