Jimmy Morrison of Pure Quill
fame—the “bare” came later.
But we are getting ahead of our
story. It seems two Chi Psis—
well fortified with generous dabs
of the special Chi Psi ‘lovalon’
scent behind each ear—came into
the Emerald newsroom looking for
Morrison. But they couldn’t catch
Morrison for his strength was the

The two retired for reenforce

chapter determined to get Morri
son. After a battle royal between
the Chi Psi man (18 parts) and
Morrison and three loyal members
of the Emerald staff during which
tables and typewriters were thrown
promiscuously about the room; Jim
Emmett, who was at the time writ
ing a story, yelled, “Fair play. If
one of you is man enough to get
him. do it.”
Again the boys from the house
of “Lovalon" retired and decided
with a great dead of conceit that
eighteen of them would make a
man and got Morrison.
So flattered were the Chi Psis by
the Quill’s praise of their scent
that they spread generous helpings
of it—slightly tinct with asafetida
—upon his hair.
Being polite little men, the Chi
Psis gave Morrison the chance to
pick his own bridge, but Morrison
tbld them that he wasn’t proud,

was the man with whom the duel
was sought he was given his choice |

backyard was determined as the
spot to be marked X.
Morrison was told to take his,
clothes off, the Chi Psis quickly
covered their eyes so that none of
them should blush and spoil the
sport—the devils!
On the wall poised Morrison, and
the big bad Chi Psis counted for
him, “Upsy, doopsy, jumpsey.”
Then in went Morrison.
Quickly he was handed a robe

street. With the willing helpful

showed him home.

St. Mary’s Favored
Tentative Starting Lineup
For Annual Contest
Is Announced
Anxious to prove to Californians
that they can play football in spite
of the terrific defeat recently
handed them by the Trojans, the
Webfoot football squad of 29 play
ers, trainers, coaches, and manag
ers entrained yesterday noon for
San Francisco where they will
meet St. Mary’s in the sixth annual
Thanksgiving day tilt in Kezar
stadium. They were cheered on by
a huge group of students and
townspeople, who gathered at the
depot as the train left for the bay
city. Seventeen members of the
rally committee also left by pri
vate cars for the game.
Prink Callison, Webfoot grid
mentor, substantiated his starting
choices after running the squad
through a light workout this mor
ning on a slippery field. The open
ing backfield combination of Ralph
Terjeson at quarterback, Maury
Van Vliet and John Reischman,
halfbacks, and Frank Michek, full
back, worked together with the
injured Bob Parke running signals
alongside them. St. Mary’s has
been conceded a slight advantage
by dopesters.
Lineup Named
The starting jine will be the
same which has opened recent
Webfoot contests. It included Con
Fury at center, Ross Carter and
Del Bjork, guards, Alex Eagle and
Gardner Frye, tackles, and Butch
Morse and Stan Riordan, ends. The
only possibility of a shift is at
right end where Riordan is only a
slight favorite over Vince Walker
and Budd Jones.
Other players making the trip
are Ed Farrar and Chan Berry,
centers; Roy Gagnon. Andy Kur
ney, Clarence Codding, guards;
George Haller., Bill Estes, tackles;
Ned Simpson, end; Hug McCre lie,
quarterback: George Pepelnjf-k,
