Teeth chattering and lips blue as a ring of a spectators goaded him on in the Union Friday night, Homer D. Peabody '41 popped his nineteenth consecutive dish of ice cream into his mouth and succeeded David "Kentucky" Mitchell '41 as college ice cream king.
Aided and abbetted by his manager, Harold F. Lubehansky '41 who fanned him with a knapkin between rounds, Peabody judiciously alternated chocolate and vanilla as he set an all-time high. He ate a healthy dinner first.
Former champ Mitchell, contacted last night said that he would make a come-back after mid-years. "And I won't stop at 20," he said. "It's more apt to be 25. Or 30."
