PLYMPTON DERBY HELD UP BY INEBRIATE BEER CONTAINERS
Unable to resist the call of a spring twilight, the Gold Coasters turned out at 7 o'clock last night for the annual Plympton Downs Sprints to the tune of bouncing beer and ale cans. Traffic on Plympton Street was halted, as students let the empty cans roll down to the finish line at the intersection of Bow Street.
Hubert H. Hauck '38 was victorious in a series of starts with Rheingold beer. Dawson's Pale Ale was easily the fastest in the field, but an inebriate tendency to run into the gutter often prevented it from finishing. Although a slow roller, Pabst invariably took the straightest course and occasionally triumphed when the faster competitors stuck by the wayside. However, interest died out when a strong arm of the law objected to the racket raised by the spectators.
