Taking advantage of yesterday's rain Coach Ducky Waters' finger bowling squad held the first scrimmage of the season in the Homer Q. Puddle Memorial Bowl in preparation for the approaching contest with the Yale dunkers. The large turnout of 100 men boded well for a successful season.
Headed by captain Swisher Digit the team went thru a long drill which included scooping scotch and sodas out of highball glasses. Commenting on this, Coach Waters explained, "the scotch being heavier than water strengthens the finger muscles, and the depth of the glasses forces the boys to get their scoop strokes lower, an essential fundamental for high scoring."
In the scrimmage following the highball drill Chief Comslop and Fluff Stevadore ran positively wild churning up the water in the Bowl. Waters admitted that their performance may have been due to a favorable internal influence.
