being pointed toward that game with
the idea of getting back some of the
victory-taste we lost last year to the
same outfit."
As part of its job of playing host to
thousands of visitors during the cele
bration, Hamilton will have athletic
officers and the football squad of De
Vilbiss as special guests at celebration
events Saturday night, after the game,
