75 Years Ago: Mack Is Some Artist. We are not familiar with the courses Mack is taking at the College, but we will recommend him as a gilt-edge artist in decorating eyes of bullies.

We compliment, (although we are sorry the disgraceful affair took place), Mach on the souvenir he placed under the eye of the bully on Friday evening.

The ingrate used language that is not taught in our county schools, but is used freely by men of his class. Coach Spier, who is a gentleman and fine man in every way, was a victim of the bully's bad language and spanked his face.

The bully made for Coach Spier, but Mack not having any -itliletic exercise during the evening, took up the last round, and put a neat piece of drapery under his left eye that you ever saw, to take home to demonstrate to the Hanover people that we treat all visitors with respect, and accommodate them in anyway to make their visit a success and pleasant one.

We understand that the bully was not a member of the team, but from McSherrystown.
