Varsity, 28-0

*1'

By DILL POUGLISm
andBEE SNOBERTSON
In the mud and rain of historic.
Palmer Field, an all-girl all star
football team smashed Michigan's
mighty varsity 28-0 yesterday in
one of history's great upsets.
The broads of Dr. Margie Bong,
who last week challenged Binnie
Boosterbum's varsity to the game,
were so good that the 103,000
roaring fans that hung out of the4
windows of the women's dorms
lost control and fell out.
A Fated Day
It was a fated day from the
start. Taking a Rum Crammer
punt on her own two yard line,#
Stangel' Hall's Nan "Forever" Am-
berson swept to the fifty before
being stepped on by All-Americanz
tackle Smart Balker. Miss Am-
berson was scraped off the field;
and the remains will be on dis-
play at Hill Auditorium tomorrow..:.
But the girlies were not to be de-
nied. Gamma Foo's Barge Smith,
took a pitchout from the disceased kk
Amberson and swivel-hipped, and
I mean swivel-hipped, her way to
the Michigan 13, where big Low
Bowlfullof it, smashed her face
into the bright brown turf.
The throng roared as ex-posture
teacher Em Barris slashed to the
five. Sinda Drooler of the 'Tata
house pile-drived over captain-,
elect G. Cigar Beads, all the way
to the one.
Only Four Seconds Left

The rain grew heavier, and
Coach Bong ordered all girlies to
wear inflated girdles less they
float away. The big Blue line dug
in for their last stand.
Midway in the third period,
Branflakes broke into the clear
and took a perfect pass from
Dunck McSplash, but Beverly
Boublie of Zeta Eta Theta and Ros
Gossamer of Crockwell Hall leap-
ed high in the air to intercept.
The broads had a first down on
the Michigan ten, and on the next
play, voluptuous Lucious Lunders
of Pie Baiter Phi took it over on a
sneak . . . right between center
Jim Buxoms legs. The score
mounted to 21-0, and by now the
huge throng was going completely
berserk.
Ring, Ring the Bells
The Bells of Burton rang out joy-
ously as the fourth quarter opened,
and the very waves of the new
womens pool laughed for joy. The
Michigan Marching Band boomed
out "It's a Womans World," and
Boosterbum turned to assistant
coach Wooley Beaver, and said
"Drat hang those dang girlies af-
terall-it wasn't like this in days
of Red Grange-or was it?"
Boosterbum was just sitting
down on the bench, when the girls
tallied their fourth score. Sassy
Icckyson socked Crammer right in
his kisser, he went down like a
light, and Iceky swept around his
end 98 yards to paydirt.
Hsitory had been made. Women
are here to stay. Look out Vic
Hooligan-they'll be knocking at
your Coliseum door next.
