Students Win TwoYear Revenge
At. last the students of Salem
College have had their revenge . . .
ah sweet revenge! Since that fate
ful night in 1942 when the faculty
edged out a one point victory pver
the students they have had no
rest. The noble elders have jeered,
and ragged and by sheer threat
of another challenge have kept the
students on their knees for two
years—but now they may rise to
their full he'ight and again look the
world of professors in the face.
The great team came trotting,
single file, on to the court—each
and the hope of again beating the
students into submission, took his
seat on the bleachers. When they
had rested themselves compleftely
they charged out on to the court
to participate in violent and strenu
ous exercises to furthur prepare
them for the coming ordeal.
Captain and coach of the out
fit, Leight-foot McNeely, whispered
a few inspiring words to her team
as the whistle sounded for the
first quarter. Out standing in the
first quarter was Butch Hauser,
authority or wrestling, who by
charging, clipping, and grabbing in
general managed to keep the ball
well down into her team’s territory.
Butch, with the aid of Lib and
Gerry, did a beautiful job of out
witting—by means of their passes
the student players who in the
meantime were busily making goals.
In forward position 0. Averille and
Leight-foot kept the floor hot—in
the first quarter C. Averill dis
played to an amazed' audience all
of her fanciful shots and trick plays.
Miss Kirkland played a nice polite
game. In fact every time she re
ceived the ball she considerately
hajided it to a student player. This
helped eliminate a' good deal of
roughness and possible injuries.
Leight-foot set the example for her
team by making a basket—et the
end of the quarter the score stood—
students, 9 . . . faculty, 1.
Buring the time betwepn quarters
the remains of the 1942 Kaiser
School of Cheering blended their
voice into heart warming yeUs to:
re-inspire their team. Indeed these
hearty yeUs literally picked the I
profs off the floor and sent them
into the second quarter with nefw
fire in their blo-od—the new fire
being the Eeverand. We haven’t
fiigured out what he was playing,
yet; but the way he kept his hands
on his hips and went bouncing about
the floor was fairtly reminiscent of
Charlie Chaplin in his youthful days.
Nevertheless he was a great asset
to his team—for his method/ of
goal was shot by our spirited elders—
this brought the score up to 3 points
for profs and 24 points for students.
The third quarter brought forth all
of the hidden talent. I’m Pea
Green Compbell who had been up to
this time warming the side Unes,
now came forth amid a roar of ap
proval from his own mind whether
the was chasing the ball or dodging
it. He and the Eevercnd played a
bit of hand ball together and then
reuctony gave it back to the stu
dents. Also stepping in for an in
spiring bit of play in the third
quarter was Fitter Patter Byrd.
Aftfr tiring of playing guard in
Patter Byrd made up rules all ,of |
her own—which consisted of merely
holding both arms of her foreward
to prevent any play of the .ball
in her direction. Also up-and-at
-em Gelpin strolled in to make
a ringer. Bloomers Denman’s hands I
must be pretty sore from Claping I
for the ball—which when finally
eaved to her by Leight-foot, was
was beautifully fumbled.
The fourth quarter was by far
the most no'table. Everyone from
Butch to I’m Pea Green took p^t.
C. Averill tried more of her sharp
shooting. Daphne went in . . . Dophne
came out. Betty went in . . . Bett:f
came out. No amount of pleading
could persuade Fitter Patter to re
turn to the field of action. Even
the Bold Bullfighting Senorita
couldn’t brave the struggle aftCT
having gone out in the third quart
er (so as to see for herself what
was going on). Of course the faculty
didn’t ^ know—but that last quarter
amounted up to about twenty min
utes. And in spite of the extra, time
the score remained 40 to 11 . . .
40 being the studeijts’ points—
