Gentle Kain From Heaven
On Players Gridiron,
The sob-scene that the skies
pulled Saturday made the day a
trial to two cultural organizations,
the football team and the Univer
sity Players. Except that the lat
ter braved the rain and the cold so
early in the morning, and of the
evening, and that through a leaky
roof, the two groups have a great
deal in common.
Both, for example, went to their
wntorv craves with musical ac
companiment. Both, too, had meaty
inha for several the eridiron va
riety being beef. Both played to
weather-stripped houses. Both
were graced with the presence of
Johnny's big brother. Blue Howell.
Both, also required extensive
pre-performance "getting up" by
the participants, in dressing
rooms that make all lives open
secret. Both used complicated
equipment during t he show,
cared for by a crew of athletic
underweared or otherwise pro
tected slavies. For both, in ad
dition, time pre-play and be
tween halves was characterized
by sparkling dialogue and snap
py stories, the only difefrence
being that the players tell tales
on themselves and the foot
ballers. Open Door Policy.
