Middies Celebrate Tie in Annual Classie

Army-Navy football game ended
in a 21-21 tie yesterday but you
never would have guessed it fr om
the bedlam that broke loose in the
Middies dressing room.
It was 42nd and Broadwvay on
New Year's Eve, V-E Day and the
Fourth of July all rolled into one
as the shouting, back slapping
Navy players rushed into the room.
Behind them, also pushing and
shouting, came Navy Brass led by
John L. Sullivan, Snedntary f_
Navy. Tey too, oine intefs

"IF YOU BOYS make as good

Navy Secretary added.
Elmerson yelled a spech

the players went about undress-

Stuart, whon had not practiced
for ten days, aggravated an old

and saw the remainder of the
game from the bench.
Stephenson, with a bad leg,
played not much more than a

limited action because of a leg
