Tale of Woe:
Why We Lost
To Buckteeth
Mighty Mites of Michigan
Couldn't Cope With
Unfavorable Weather
When you, dear reader, have
finished this magnificent tome,
you shall know the full story of
why we, The mighty Wolverines,
succumbed to 'dem bums' of Ohio
State. It is one of the most orn-
ery, deceitful episodes in the an-
pals of Michigan history.
Raining Like Mad
The mighty mites of Michigan
took to the field of the Buckteeth
on a cold damp day in November.
It was raining like mad (even the
weather had been fixed for this
game) and all the people in the
stands were anxious to see what
they have always called a football
game. This is an exercise where
twenty odd (you knaw- queer)
men run out on the field and then
proceed to bash one another's
brains out. To this reporter it
was all very silly, and as it was I
was waiting for the 6:11 train.
But nonetheless, them Buckteeth
beat us; I don't know what the
r score was, but I do know that the
referee must have been on their
It was a very inciting game the
man next to me kept telling me.
He would 'intersperse his loud
yells with flailing arms and hearty
snorts until I was quite discon-
certed. The Crosseyes had a guy
named Hornuts or some such
name, and every few minutes I
would hear a loud yell from the
crowd and look up from my Es-
quire to see this Warpath going
down the field. It was very silly
because no one was near him and
there wasn't anything to be afraid
of, but he was a coward and kept
Dirty Playing
Anyway, these guys won the
game and we all went home. The
dopes across the field were yelling
something about sending some
boys across the field, come on
Ohio State. It all was very foolish
because the (field was a sea of mud
and everyone would have gotten
very wet if they had gone on the

happy and our boys were all for-
lorn. What confuses me is why
the referee kept wiping the ball
with a dirty towel and putting it
down in the mud again.
(If an Ohio State man who's
bigger than we are reads this, we
r were only kidding.)
