gathering. In a few minutes both
teams will appear. Now the blue-

Here and there in the group one or
two girls smile a knowing smile and
“Here comes the team! The boys
are warming up. The stadium is
filling. P’xcellent football weather.
Now we’re starting. The whistle is
blowing. The boys take their places

Both need a mate to be complete.

And both in time will turn to mold

Will tread on others, nothing loath.
Both liave their ties and both incline.
