Tolle 22 sports editor my m Mot 1921 its Bilu Inie Diamond letter men elect Var sity Captain at meeting in gym. Election is unanimous Roll Jordan Rolv depict Indiana football at its Best John c. Mellett 12, in a racy gripping Gridiron. Story reminiscent of Days of Quot real he football Quot characterizes famous grads who have carried the famous pigskin toward Crimson Victory. Quot dutch Quot plays by netball As we As baseball is sure fielder and Good Batter. Quot co education Quot writes Jonathan Brooks in his Story Quot Roll Jordan Roll Quot featured in Collier s Quot develops oodles of Nice looking yell leaders but dam few halfback and right but however that May be or. Herman e. Quot dutch Quot sch Ler a Brooks has quite a few comments to third year varsity Man in baseball make on the subject As Well As a and basketball was unanimously a a a key Little Story to Boot. And the interesting part of it All is that the author got his material inspire elected Captain of Indiana s 1921 baseball nine at a meeting of Diamond letter player. The election which was held in the office of coach George Levis shortly after noon was attended by the following Quot i Quot men in baseball Frank Faust Charley Mathys g. P. Walker h. E. Sch Ler Everett Dean and Lloyd rust. That sch Ler is the logical Man to Pilot the varsity baseball ers next Spring is evidenced by the unanimous vote of his teammates and by expressions to that effect from coaches Levis and e. 0. Stich i. The new Leader hails from Elkhart where he figured prominently in High school athletics. He came to Indiana University in 191c and made his numeral on the freshman basketball and baseball teams. Good in two branches. Dutch sch Ler starred at Forward on the varsity basketball team in 1917 at a Forward position. He performed at Short Stop on the baseball team that year easily winning a regular berth. The War came on and made a breach in dutch s athletic activities at Indiana As it did for Many of the athletes who Are now performing on Levis picks intent Miniie for Regueur Nef Squirio daily a twice intended to round out candidates before first conference t question Bud s loyalty says scribe he Quot ought Quot know Bud Quot bounces Quot two men with suspicious looking note books from Jordan Field and sends a few complimentary Lime stones after them. Tion and All right out of our own Cream and Crimson football history. And who is Jonathan Brooks author is i. U. Grad the author is John e. Mellett 12, of Indianapolis and formerly of Columbus. He was editor of the student Here during his senior year. Or. Mellett was a member of the Meanon club now the . Fraternity. Or. Mellett has had three Brothers attend Indiana each of whom has been editor in chief of the student. And the characters too Are none other than old grads who have carried the pigskin toward Crimson Victory in the years gone by. In bloody Bill we recognize Quot bloody Bill Quot Sparks who was coach Here in 1903, and Wallie Liston is undoubtedly the same Walter Hess who played football with Indiana in 17. Writes racy Story and now or. Brooks has written a racy gripping Gridiron Story reminiscent of the Days of Quot real he football Quot of the genuine Quot rough neck variety. The Story is almost elegiac in tone at first when he talks about the Good old football Days Quot when the style was not kid gloves and Mani Crimson teams. He enlisted in the engineers Branch of the service and served As a member of the band of an engineers unit thru the War. Returning to Indiana last year sch Ler again stepped into a place on the varsity basketball team and played a creditable Forward position thru the season. When Spring came he again donned Diamond togs and proceeded to demonstrate that he was probably the most versatile As Well As the most consistently Brilliant player on the stud. He performed both a shortstop and left Garden. Sch Ler is a fast sure fielder and is a most consistent Batter. With his prowess As a player his readiness in pinches and his genial disposition he has All of the qualities requisite for being an excellent baseball Captain. Sch Ler is a Junior in the Law school. This is his last year of athletic Competition at Indiana. He wll be out for varsity basketball this Winter and will begin with the baseball squad Early in the Spring. He is a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. String tackles Quot and comments pessimistically on the emasculating effects of co education upon football teams. Quot wherever a there s co eds in any number Quot he writes Quot there s boys that sit on the bleachers and Are Brave Little Guys until we get two touchdowns behind and then they Ain t usually got enough insides to keep on we Hazard a guess that he had in mind that class of Quot Hart Schaffnit and Arrow Quot boys that make a practice of taking dates to the games instead of lining the rooters Section and again Quot co education May be a Fine thing for women but Well say it has ruined a lot of Good football ruin football teams but the Story is hardly so pessimistic As it develops. Bloody Bill Brown a varsity football Man of the old Type now a prosperous Railroad operator who does t like to see his boy grow up without Knowin what to do when the old pigskin s jammed in his stomach Quot brings big Bill Down to school and turns him Over to the coach. Big Bill has the Bone and sinew of his sire All right and bloody Bill Hopes he will make Good if he Only Don t Quot develop into a Dame then there is Little Bill Friend of big Bill who has real Pep in him who has the Quality if not the Quantity. Mentions Purdue game but the Story is too Long to Tell it All Here. There follows a series of thrilling games one with Quot Tippecanoe Quot that any Indiana student will readily recognize As our Arch Grid enemy Purdue and of yes there is a woman in the Case two of them and twins at that and big Bill Breaks training and is estranged for a time from his Friend and Little Bill gets Hurt in the army game the Yeav when the Backfield was spelled Oliphant and smells a bottle of Rose water. And would you believe it the Story ends perfectly and both boys make the ail american even if there Are a couple of women in the Case. And we even suspect towards the last that co eds Aren t so detrimental after All. At least or. Brooks seems to soften a Little in the very last sentence when he says Quot if i Ever meet Walter Camp i m Gonna Tell him that there s More things in football and All americans than Are dreamed of in his Ball Sophy. What of co eds twins cracked wish Bones and such three Quot i Quot men on the list the basketball squad under the direction of coach Levis has been revised and Twenty one men Are now on the regular picked squad. Only three Quot i Quot men Are on the list. At least seven additional players Are expected to turn out for net practice As soon As the football season is Over. The following men have been chosen As regular members of the Basket squad Dean Busby Dobbins Dehority Marxson Hauss Gentzer Schuler Aldridge Bowen Johnson Schooley Rogers Ferguson Buckner Bessert Hallam sadder Young May and Fuson. Sch Ler Dobbins and Captain Dean Are the Only letter men on the squad. Ohio state comes first the coach and men Are working daily in preparation for the first conference game which will be played with Ohio state at Columbus on december 8. The Crimson team will play eleven big ten games this season. The first conference Battle to be played on the Indiana floor will be by Smith Mclandress while old Bud guards the portals of Jordan Field no scout of another school will Ever get dope on the Crimson. No Well never doubt his loyalty again even for the Sake of a Story. You see we scared up a Kappa Sig freshman and with note books and Fountain pens tried to make ourselves look like Rah Rah boys from Northwestern. Then we sneaked around the student office and Down to Jordan Field where the team was holding secret practice preparatory to the Northwestern game. Bud was sitting nearby watching a pile of footballs. At first he did t notice is so we began taking notes supposedly vital information on jumbo s new shifts. Then we had one of the Fellows go and tip him off As to what we were doing. And right then things began to happen. The pledge suddenly remembered that he was needed Back at the House and the Gate began to look pretty inviting to me too. Bud chases pm out Quot get out of Here you Blackleg Quot called Bud in a decidedly informal tone of Quot yes sir yes sir Quot we agreed As fast As our legs would carry us. Quot but say Quot we whispered insinuating by Quot need any Cash How about $20?&Quot a and we reached for a Lavundi y Check we had in our pocket. Quot get out get out i m no Blackleg even if you Are Quot he bawled Back at us and by this time he had us by the with Northwestern on january 17. A a. Us Collar and was showing us the Gate.

Coach Levis Hopes to develop a scoring machine which will be Able to Cope successfully with any team of the big ten. Estelle b. Owen wins gup offered Eon scholarship looked sheepish and for my part could t think up any More arguments. We Felt a terrible propulsion from behind the Gate slammed and we found ourselves on the outside with the humiliating realization that we had been try it again Quot come Kelly Quot i urged Quot let s try just once More. Only Well Light out before Bud gets so the Frosh stuck his Green Cap under his coat and we again went Down around the East end of the Field to where we found a Hole in the Fence. I got thru and beckoned to Kelly but he remembered again that he had a Rug to beat and could t stay very much longer. So i got out the old am. Govt note Book again and put Down a few hikes that i heard Bennie Cravens calling off which was t so bad either for hike was to be my Middle name in about one half of one per whizzed by suddenly something whizzed by my ear like the boys say the Whiz Bangs did but when it hit the Fence behind me i realized it was Only a Boulder of Indiana Limestone. I glanced up and Down the Field Bud was coming hands full of clubs and rocks and a facial expression that would make a Brown county Rattlesnake the original pacifist. And behind Bud the whole Frosh squad came tearing to be the first to get at me. This was More than i had anticipated. One dive and i was thru the Fence. I looked for Kelly but All i could see of him was his curly hair As he fanned the air Down sorority Alley in his haste to get Home to beat the rugs. I chose the opposite direction and just As i got to the end of the Fence around the Corner came Bud choosing the lesser of the two evils i turned Agaliki and the Phinies grabbed me yes i lived thru it thanks to a bursar s receipt that i was Lucky enough to have with me but i m mighty glad that i was t a real scout for that school up at Evanston.
