Bring Football To GMLawn
By Mel. Cohen
Cheered on by hundreds of Univer
sity students, prospects for Coach
Snavely's Rose Bowl team of 1960 have
been scrimmaging on the lawn in
front of Graham Memorial every eve
ning for the past week. The hopefuls
consist of grammar school students
aged ten to thirteen.
Some 200 ardent fans of football
line the lawn every day at 6:30 p.m. to
encourage the fellows as they exhibit
the smashing drives of their respec
tive teams. The outstanding man on
the field is triple-threat Frankie, ten
year old Chapel Hill resident. Frankie
is the smallest man on the field, yet
fans have unanimously chosen him the
star of the games.
Frankie's team invariably crushes
its rival, but Friday Frankie was out
with an injured foot and his seriously
crippled team lost. Although the
games are not refereed and the field
is stripeless, the number of followers
increases daily since the boys play a

"The White Steed" is an Irish folk
drama dealing with the relations be
