Blessed or cursed by a rather meek soul, L feel squeamish

a very ordinary one at that, clairvoyance is an umpteenth

Let's Cheer Like Hades
In tlio sa mo groove, 1 fervently hope Oregon’s cheering
demonstration tonight will be nothing short of superb. It’s
no rank disgrace to get hilariously enthused over something
like a football game; you need have no fear of being socially
Vlispwned if your coiffure unhitches a bit under the stress of
spelling out Oregon. True, a few self-styled intellectuals, per
verts perhaps, raise their shrivelled-up noses to that angle of
displeasure at forceful cheering during athletic contests . . .
"a boorish, adolescent, and barbarous exhibition.”
However, one can, without begging forgiveness, look
upon it as an exuberant expression of the kind of spirit
and cooperation that smoulders at Oregon and erupts All
American Oreganas and Emeralds with startling regular
ity. So discard petty inhibitions tonight. Get behind, not
too far behind, Earl Russell’s yell dukes and Les Ander
son’s rally committee.

nerve-wracked Brooklyn bums, bumped the New York Yankees
