= THE BURRO ...
Before leaving our stories of football there are some things which
must be said in behalf of the friends of athletics.
The football men are especially indebted to Mr. Roy Curby for his
interest and willingness to assist in every way. To Mr. Alvin Maddox who
assisted as an official and always showed interest in the team. To Mr.
Tulane Smith, who gladly assisted them in the greatest troubles of the
year. To Judge Miller, B. B. Holmes and all other friends who helped to
keep the spirit of fight and fairness in our Loys. Moreover, they have
done all this without the slightest hope of ever gettin; any material
After the game is over, pal;
When you have counted up the cost,
The world at large will never care
One jot or tittle why you lost.
After the hand is in the deck,
After the chips are gathered in,
You are the only one that gives
A dern because you didn't win.
After you've flivvered on the play,
No need explaining it to us-
The world goes rolling on the same;
It don't care a tinker's cuss.
After the rif has counted ten,
After they've hauled you from the floor,
The reason that the punch hit home
Concerns the ringside gang no more.
Forget the worn post-mortems, pal,
Let the wherefore perish with the why-
The paying public wants results-
Keep to yourself the alibi!
