On last Sunday last the St. Stanis laus Football Team played its first gam e of the season, although the score was not as large as most peo ple expected, the game was won by a good margin. 3 Most people uhder-rated the St. Aloysius squad, who at all times played a last and masterly game. Seldom has their peer, weight and experience considered, been seen on the local gridiron^ The St. Stanislaus prospects are unusually bright for seldom has a local team ever mmdied themselves so well in their first game. The speed and the weight that the team has this year, it ijahould be able to show Jefferson a few tricks of the game when they theet here on Nov ember 30th. m The line-up for last Sunday was as follows; If ST. ALOYSIUS ; • STANISLAUS Igau, L.E. | Scafide, L. E. Pevovich, L T (C) Jaubert, L T Leanfant, L G ,|f Reed, L F Michael, C * Welsh, C Druy, R G V Weilbacher, R G Euriderico, R T f Roberson, R T Jeanen, R E ' Escalona, R E Baldwin (C) Q : Keiffer, Q Fafay.L H | Gex, L H Frigerio, R H S Glover, R H Drouillet, F | Cerniglia, F Score by period^; St. Aloysius >0 0 0 0— 0 St, Stanislaus 13 6 6 0—25 Summary—Touchdown, Glover, 2; Gex, 1; Jaubert, a! Time of Periods—Ten minute Quarters. Substitutions—Schiro for Scafide; Shaw for Reed; Brittingham for Welsh; Duggan for Roberson; Jordy for Gex; Fruge for Glover. Referee—Bobo p'Brien. Umpire—J. Green. Head Lineman—F. Green. Sam Cerniglia’s lin e bucking, Cy ril bucking and broken field running and Lix Fruge’s end running made the game a very spectular one a t Glover carried tFj'-ball 20 yards on the opening play, and Lix Fruge made three run which netted be tween 40 and 60 yards each. When there was a few yards needed Sam could always be relied upon to gain them. Keiffer, the quarterback played a good game in spite of the fact that he was a little nervous in the first quarter. Many of the large gains made was due to his head work. Jaubert was the steadiest player along the line, he clearly outwitted the opponents in many of their plays. He even carried the ball over for one of the touchdown that were made. The team should show some class when they meet Audubon The Audubon team has never been defeated in the past three yaars. CLASS ELECTION. The Graduating Class of S. S. C. Class ’22 held its first meeting on Saturday, October Ist. The follow ing officers were elected: Sam Cerniglia, president. Cyril Glover, vice president. J. T. Wolfe, Secretary. Wheeler Lucas, treasurer. Ther e are twenty names in the class and of course there are quite a bit of competition for the offices, as every one considered it a great honor to be chosen an officer in a class of such intelligent young men.

Dear Red: Accordin to prearangement* there of we of this burg took along all the females what belonged to our tribe at about 2 of the P. M., on last Sun day and hiked our happy way down past the depot and Feed stores which festoone the highway whaton we had to do the wending; we brought up with a jerk in our spavined leg at a gateway wherein stood a likely lookin yuoth busily growi a Chaplin under his nose, and his north paw stuck out for stray quarters. After runnin the gauntlet of the pay-asyou enter-sentries, we got into the main slaughter pen and found standin’ room only, (See, Red, they ain’t got nothing Use to sit on, and you wood not sit if they offered you a rocker) we picked out a lump of dirt what looked higher than its neighbors and started to keep our dignity and not get flustered nor excited—but shucks, Red, they ain’t no use, bo, for pretty soon the gladiators got line up for the fray and some guy started to callin all the numbers whats in th e rithmatic and the hole dern gang went at' each other like the helbent on murder or somethin. 1 looked around to see if they was a Nero somewhere with his thumbs down, but I could not locate him. Well, all the however, them athletics was showin the stuff what young America’s made of, and the oppos ing team begun to soon find out that somebody’s steered em up against a stove. But I ain’t told you who they was: they was old Sic em Foster and his bunch of Saint Stans, from over to the House of Brains, and he was buckin th e other bunch of Saints from over to the Crescent burg what runs th e Saint Aloysius College. . kr hdebTHo uorPaE eta rahtse Red, th e family name of thi s game is known as Foot-Ball, but they should be a act of Congress what would change it to somethin what would fit it better for you have lit tle use for your feet other than to keep you in the runnin or maybe to step on another guys hand or some thin; for this game seems to be played with the hands and brains and what goat propensities that a guy can command. I want to take a jurat right now while I am about it that these guys whats under the command of Sic ’em Foster are all some kin to Nannie’s husband, old man Bill. Red, you know that big human mountain what they call Jumbo Jaubert? Well, he belongs to that Billy class, yes, do you know that guy lowers that head of his and massacres part of hi s own family? Sure thing, it was his lil Bro. what got in the way, and the medicos found oht that his collar button, no I mean hi# collar-bone, was broke. Red, I want to wise you that this aint no Pink Tea business. We hadn’t hardly made an im pression on that mud lump what we selected to oversee the gang on be fore I see a guy with a big “S” on his front go a tearin round the end like fourteen Joneses was behind him, he was going so fast that I couldn’t identify him so I turned to a guy what was standing next to me to ask—but Red, I didn’t have to ask any fool questions, for th e man on my left wa s Harry Glover, and all you had to do was to look at his face and you saw who the boy was what was running.

This Bth day of October, 1921. A. A. KERGOSIEN, Clerk. and bump m e off’n my mudlump. Old Redskin, I will say that every one of “Sic em'g bunch” played that gam e like it meant life or death. A guy what was standin there tella me the names of some of them heroes, him and me gets up a converse and he says: “See that thing that looks like a white streak over there?” I says, “yes” what is it? Smoke? “No mister, ihat> Cricket Keiffer makin a run.’* Just at that time I see the Cricket throw the bail to another guy: “Look, he’s handin his gravy to Gex!” Sure pop, he hands the pigskin over and Walt buries it be hind the line for a “touch-down.” What did the rube do, says I? The kid looks at me for a spell and says: “That’s the MAN i n him, bo, he’s in the game for the gamesake and wont crab anything on a hero line.” Just at that time, old man, Jupe Pluve upset hi s waterbucket and the crowd streaked for cover. I went over to the “Quarters” sose to be near the heroes, but got fifteen ounces of disappointment for I located a stand right in a bunch of them Saint Aly's. I couldn’t leav e for I had on my hay skypiece. After the time wag up all them guys went on the field just like they was a bunch of Fordsons, and pretty soon they was vyin with each other to see wo could make the most mud. The rain had the dop on us, but not on that lot of redbloods, the kid follows me out soons the drops got skinny and shows me where Scafe and the bunch were trying to dig a trench with their noses, Sam was draggin two or three of the enefy to no mans land and the bal ance was trying to find some moke what would stand long enough to get pasted. The fued ended. The score stood 25 to zero, and Red, didn’t I tell you it ought to change its name—there was only one score made with th e feet. I reckon I will ge hep to the game soon, and be able to hand you some you can digest. Theys goin to be another battle next Sunday, and I am going out in a rubber suit like Harry Glov er had on under his clothes last Sunday. Yours for a goal, FULLER BULL.
