The History of Harvard's Commencement, Explained
According to a dispatch received from Paul "Vermont" Tector '40, of Princeton, who saw Time magazine's reprint of the story on the Harvard Union ice-cream eating record, the title of David "Kentucky" Mitchell '41, as ice-cream champion of the Ivy circuit is contested. For Mitchell, who ate 18 dishes after a full meal and ran a cross country race the next day, yesterday received the following telegram:
"According to Time Magazine you have broken all Harvard records for ice-cream consumption by eating eighteen dishes after dinner stop Having just consumed forty small dishes equalling twenty large dishes of ice-cream directly after dinner I consider myself worthy of defending Princeton's honor by challenging you to an ice-cream consumption duel after the Harvard-Princeton football game next Saturday stop Since I am not a runner I suggest we play eighteen holes of golf before breakfast next morning stop Princeton hopes Harvard's ice-cream champion will not get cold feet." (Signed) Paul Vermont Tector '40.
Far from getting cold feet, Harvard's Mitchell sent the following wire to the challenger late last night:
"Am in receipt of your telegram stop Please be advised that I should like very much to go to bat with you in an ice-cream eating duel stop Where shall we eat stop If Princeton beats Harvard in Saturday's football game I am willing to eat at Princeton stop If Harvard wins are you willing to come to Cambridge stop If tie I suggest eating at New Haven stop Await reply."
(Signed) David "Kentucky" Mitchell '41
