Sunday The Tenderfoot pawed through the entire lot and chose the following three letters as the best of the lot For a starter Stone who takes the moth-eaten tack hammer as a consistent entry In the Tenderfoot's column follows his dissertation on the oomph with a scholarly study of the duck-footed dum-dum It follows: The duckfooted dum-dum is rapidly becoming one of America's most popular species of game The writer does not hesitate in saying that In the next 25 years hunting the dum-dum will become as exciting and common a sport as sparrow snooting Is at present The name duckfooted dum-dum Is derived from the Yiddish (ferocious animosity obknoxsush peto-rlum) From third edition chapter 93 page 1023 we learn that In west Polygonia province of East Africa there existed many years ago a queer animal not unlike our common skunk called the on account of Its webbed feet which enabled it to walk over the marsh lands -where It made its home This beast was much sought after for the fine fur it carried -The natives would it by the only effective method known They would form a circle around the marsh each native being equipped With a tom-tom drum upon which they beat lustily The noise would drive the duckfoot out whereupon they would shoot him with a hlghpower rifle Evolution is a queer thing and It so happened that after years of being hunted the duckfoot developed a natural mode of protection consisting of a hollow flat drum-like growth on their back and two tails shaped like drum sticks on the end When attacked -they would pound rapidly on their back and so confuse the natives that they could not see to shoot In the last few years these in- trepid little animals have migrated to North America via the water route to escape extinction They are rapidly increasing in numbers and there is no known way to capture them now due to the fact that they are totally deaf BOB STONE Boise Idaho From Heyburn a hunter Indites the following Washington Irvlngesque epistle relative to a

four substitutes defeated the Meridian high school eleven Friday afternoon at Meridian by a score of 13 to 6 substitute who was in the game one minute and out the next In the fourth fteriod But Owen's was the outsiaud-ng effort and the margin jof the unexpected success Scores' la Yale Area A critical survey of the game shows that Harvard scored on each of its Veal advances Into Yale territory The same survey shows that Yale five times drove fairly deep into the Crimson area scored only once As in other games this season the Blue players by pass or rush advanced almost twice as many yards as the Crimson but were bent back or pressed to point where their thrusts were ineffective all but once Notable in the Crimson system was the strategy which kept Captain Buell on the side lines while a third string player Lee called signals until Harvard had reached a commanding position Then Buell was inserted notwithstanding a noticeable limp from a leg injury and under the stimulus of his call the touchdown mime Under Lee Harvard had twice stormed the Blue goal from the four yard line where run was stopped and still lacked two yards Under the captain Owen was over at a bpund Harvard Springs Surprises strategy fashioned by Head Coach Bob Fisher Included sur-rises in several details The number- of them hard earned The midshipmen were not without honor In defeat for they played a game that was worthy of any team that has come out of Annapolis in years Entering the game with the West Pointers as the favorites the Annapolis crew fought their way to the front and only went under after a most bitter struggle with their colors flying At the end the 2400 midshipmen In the north stand cheered the Army almost as vociferously as they did their own eterling team Smythe Stars for Army Smythe the Army quarterback was the great star of the game His running with the ball and his forward passing was unsurpassed on Franklin field this season Barchet the sterling Navy star played well while he was In the game but Norris his successor was easily thp outstanding figure of the Navy lineup He was used much in the last part of the game and was in every play Fifty thousand persons saw the contest The president of the United States was represented by Vice President Coolidge Secretary of War Weeks and General Pershing rooted for the Army and Secretary of the Navy Denvy and Assistant Secretary Roosevelt were among the Navy cohorts Navy Outplays Cadets Having defeated the Army in the last three years it looked like another Naval victory in the first two periods as the midshipmen outplayed the Cadets in all departments Most of the play in these two periods was in Army territory The West Pointers were unable to penetrate the Navy line while the lads from the short or the Severn river bad no trouble In punching holes in the forward defense of the Army In the second period the Navy uscu its aerial attack which resulted in the first score of the game a touchdown by McKee The Army undismayed by the unexpected lead fought back hard A bad pass threw the Navy back for a big loss and the midshipmen were forced to Then Smythe made a short run that put the ball within striking distance and Garbische booted a placement goal over the bar for the Army's first score against the Navy since 1916 The Army took the lead In the third period on a touchdown by Wood in the southeast corner of the field but the Navy again forged to the front id the final period with a touchdown by Conroy Then the Cadets by a supreme effort won the game in the gathering darkness on a hard won

flat backs was Juat plain bearskin and by beating oil this they produced ounds The various notes were produced by taking a deep breath which thereby stretched or tightened the skin on their backs and Eroduced the notes of the carma-itic scale One Dum Dum seemed to be especially good because he mixed a little Jazz in with his music By standing on his hind feet and beating his front feet together he

North American game the duck-footed dum-dum This little beast has very strange I habits He spends his office hours lurking about some dark -recess in a 1 deserted mine and during the dark hours of the night roams through the i forest in quest of food His digestive i apparatus is very delicate and he can only assimilate broken beer bottles which he plucks from the roadside I had been tramping all day and aa night fell I was attracted by a strange sound that arose from a nearby ravine It was a rhythmic boom boom boom broken only by an occasional wall of sorrow It's barbaric melody entranced me and I stopped What could It be? I consulted my camper's guide and found that It was notorious dumdum searching the highways and byways for food Grasping my trusty rifle In one hand i and a can opener In the other I crept noiselessly forward The sonorous booming became nearer and louder until it resembled an drum corp in intensity Now I could see his pale green eyes gleaming In the moon- i light and see the swishing of his dou-
