Dear Pedro: Well f seen it. No
I dont mean I seen it exactly I mean
I was there. The peple what was
runnin the bizness end of the game
didnt know I was coming and they
didnt save me no seat and as a consy
quince I paid em 1$ and they let me
stand up close enuf so I cood find
out how the game come out es soon as
it were over and shure enuf purty
soon after the peple begin to leave
I found out the score was the hurri
can 0 and the tigers ditto just like
some people what we know. While
I didnt get to see much' of the game.
Pedro on acet of havin to stand be
hind so many peple I dont think the
(ines in the granstan had any large
thing on me as from all reports they
didnt see much of one ether. I ast
some folks what was hollerin for the
tigers how they like it and they said
not much & I ast some of the ones
what was hollerin for the hurrican
hew they like it and they said not
much and so as one of them bat
tIes 4f the century I guess it was
about as usual. The fellows what
was puttin ip the old *ack for the
game must a liked it tho as there was
frly nigh onto six (six) thousand
boobs like me and you there and
the five (five) thousand that got to
set down had to pay 2$ apece an] I I
guess if I had ast the biz nirg how he
liked it he wood not a said not much.
You know I always like a little ex
citement for my money Pedro so
when I coodnt see the game I just
made a noise like Sh--< 1 H ,m ns
antd sluthed around some. I wanted
to find out why they called the Clem
son .players the tigers and it was
easy its pie after I done a little high
class sluthiii. Its because they look
like Elyfants and act like latis but I
never did find out why they called
the Furman players the hurricans
you know Pedro I seen a football
game olet before and I coodi a told,
you all about this one in de tail if I
ceod just a seen it all. The kind I
like is where they is a reglar Olympic
affair what includes wraslin, boxin,
.jumlpin) , rullill aid so on etc &c and
'where the umn pire blows his whissel
ever few minits and says time

kind a thrill you got outa this battle
of the century was the kind you get
when the Elyfants march by in the
circus parade at I pm when they said
they was comin at 11. They had
sevral good bands which I dont know
how the peple wood a got along with
out them and the Clemson school boys
was on one side and the Furman boys
on the ether side and down in front
of the boys on each side was three or
four boys all dolled up in wnite close
and. they called em cheer leaders and
ever time these white close babies
had attack of the saint vitus dance
the boys on their side would turn
loose their voices which was tuned
up high and yell like commanshe in
dians but only the most educated stu
dents can belong to the reglar rooters
as all they yells is in French, yiddish
& latin. If onle side had a made a
tuehdown Pedro it wood a been six
(six) points for them and then if
they had a kicked the ball in the
place they wanted to it wood a been
one (one) more point but they didnt
nether side do this an( thats the
reason it was a tie. I dont know why
they have a tuchdown count six (six)
po;ints but if I was the tigers and the
hurrican I woodnt. play with Auburn
and Ga teck less they had a umpire
what just counted em one (one) point
each. When I left that other game
I saw I coodnt help but repeat that
nobul poem by old Bill Shakspere
what he wrote just after he seen a
game when the mighty Stratford ey
elone met the roaring Lonlon lions
aid he warbled
"Lives of football players remind us
We can make things come to pass
And departing leave behind us
Half our faces in the grass."

Pickens People Will Take Part in
The patriotic organizations of Pick
ens, the D. A. R. and U. D. C. have
been given a most interesting part in
the pageant, "The Keowee Trail," to
be given in Greenville on November
11, for they will portray the home
coming of J6hn 0. Calhoun on his
return from congress. The historic
mansion at Fort Hill is to be pictured
and the friends and neighbors of the
distinguished citizen of Pickens. dis
trict will be there to bid him welcome.
Much valuable history will be told
in this pageant and some of the his
iory of our own county will be told.
It is suggested and hoped that the
trustees will close all the schools of
Piekens county for that day and allow
the teachers and pupils an opportun
ity to study the history of their coun
ty which will be taught in such an at
tractive wiay. The fact that the day
set for the pageant is Armistice Day,
November 11, is another reason why
the day should be observed as a holi
