PENCILED ON SIDELINES
AS GAME WENT FORWARD
The cheering did not sound so en
thusiastic Saturday as it did at the
Iowa game. This was largely eaused
by the different kind of football put
up by the Tigers.
Among those who took the defeat
hardest, was Dr. W. G. Bek, whose
heart was almost broken by those Iowa
touchdowns, that is if the expression
of his face were to be taken as an
index of his feelings.
If Driver had heard the "Ohs" that
sounded as though they came from
the heart of every Co-Ed on the bleach
ers, when he was found to be seriously
injured, he would have been somewhat
consoled for the kick on his head.
Between the halves, 'Tommy" Moni
law, Coach Monilaw's son, and "Tubby"
Graves, entertained the crowd on the
bleachers, by kicking and catching a
football along the sidelines. The foot
ball was almost as large as Tommy
but he handled it manfully.
