Andrew Latham Smith, football
coach, found rest in the silent me
morial stadium at the University of
California Friday, . after W. W.
Campbell, president of the Univer
sity of California, in impressive ob
sequies eulogized him as a man who
was "even greater in defeat than he
was in victory." Smith died recent
ly in Philadelphia.
The full roll of the University's
undergraduate, graduate and faculty
strength, augmented by the great
football squads of the last six years
that have made the "Smith system"
nation-renowned gathered under mis
ty skies outside the stadium an hour
before noon.

both victory and defeat," President
Campbell told the bare-headed
throng. "He was a manly man."

semblage that California has given
Andy Smith to eternity and his name

of true Californians.

Stroud, California '13, who as grad
uate manager brought .Smith to Cal
ifornia from Purdue in 1916. At the
conclusion of his address and as the
bells of the Campanile on the univ
ersity campus chimed the hour of
noon, a United States army airplane
bearing Smith's ashes and piloted by
Lieutenant J. S. Glasscock, a friend
of the dead leader, flew low over the
empty and silent stadium and spread
the ashes on the moist turf of the
playing field. The crowd then dispersed.
