L ^Hgona 3Bpper JWotnes 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 impression sometimes, I know, Cause I occasionally tell the wrong side to "Go I" 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 1 THERE ARE ELEVEN MEN on each football team. That's elementary, or so it would seem, But once in a while a team gets 12 men, Then they lose some yardage and get moved back p-jain. If guys who play football get mixed on this rule, And I know they're wrong - you can see I'm no fool 1 * * * 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 fatter in girth and blow whistles to stop. And when they decide they've had enough fun, They stop the whole game by shooting a gun. * * * 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 - then most of the men, Go do something else and I'm mixed up again. * * * GUARD, CENTER AND ENDS, are positions I know, Then there's halfback and way-back and educated toe. The players are rugged and the players are tough, .,. They're 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. * * * A BOY PLAYING FOOTBALL forgets manners he was taught, And never says, "Excuse me" or "you first" like he ought. He pushes guys to the ground and gets mud on his shirt, And butts with his head and rolls in the dirt. The more he acts rude and scowls like he's mad, The more it delights every student and grad I * * * IF YOU ARE WONDERING ABOUT the posts on the ends Well, one is the enemy's; the other our friends'. But neither wants company, nor wants 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 all 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 muddle, 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 rest. The band salutes visitors right from the heart, Instead of yelling, "Tear them apart 1" 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 henchmen, 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'S A FAT CHANCE THAT a gal named Grace, No sports writer will ever replace. And if I'm not hep to the plays, everyone, 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, * * * DURING THE WEEK OF October 10 through 16, people having birthdays include Diane Allen, Paul Marti, Eleanor Geelan, Barbara Wicks, Paul Seeley, Roger parr, Ricky Neilsen, Jim Milder, Clara Keith, Gregory Allen, Theresa Marti, Cathy McDonald, Herman Hauberg, Mike Dooly, Jon Peim, Al Agena, Jim Modrell, Joseph Straub, Jr., Helen Leaneagh, Allen Kuester, sheila Winkel, Ruth Sigsbee, Colleen Montag, Erman Hanson, Pat Woods, Mariene Elmore, Pottie Martin, Clinton Christian, Dr. William Clegg, Ed Wolf and Diana Morris, Dr. and Mrs, C.
