But let us make the last Lord’s Day

FOOTBALL AT CITY PARK
The Clifton College Kittens and the
Old Time Cats will crawl in the mill
and mix it with eatffi* other at 2:30
o’clock Saturday evening, Dec. 26th,
of this week. This game will witness
in action such stars as now appear
on the greatest footballs teams ever
gathered together on a gridiron. No-
tables from the past such as Mute
Wilson, all-state fullback and Red
Grange of present fame will be called
to participate in the art of officials
and their doubles will be seen in ac-
tion carrying the ball across the
The present College team boasts of
their present star. Slim Grimland, and
it will be interesting to see the shoe-
string tackles that will bring this
secondary defense and brick wall to
the ground and thrown for losses. The
grandstand will be surprised with the
huddle system which Coach D. X.
Bible and Chief Bender have been
drilling into the Old College Cats, and
it is a miracle to witness the great
signal calling which is a silent system,
and will be the first to be seen in this
part of Texas. Mr. ^Harris who set the
old College on the map when he and
Sonny Schow were the mainstays of
that team, will work together in tbo
backfield, also Chink Westley, wh n^..
Coach Bible of A. A M. has picked to
lead the conference in drop-kicking
next year, will also demonstrate his
ability by kicking a field goal from
the 70 yard line.
The insurance agents have warned
the present college team that they will
withdraw all policies they hold on
players less than 22 years old now at-
tending Clifton College and will not
be responsible for any injury incurred
by the Old Cats shoe string tackles.
The game will be broadcasted if the
station FLOP is ready by Saturday.
This game will start at 2:30 and
wilj be played for the benefit of the
Clifton College ‘Athletic Association,
and from the looks of the outcome
the present team at Clifton will need
your help, for the College has a
heavy team and their supporters will
appreciate your help if you will kind-
ly step in when the time comes and
help carry the big men off the field
when they are knocked out. This will
be by far the most exciting game
played in difton this year.
