Transcript COLORFUL ATHLETICS In the fall, Saturday becomes a panorama of the sounds and color and movement of a crowd watching the game . . . Football is speed and precision and skill, excitement and spirit . . . Every person in the throng is a vivid part of the scene, whether he is a program vendor or a cheerleader, a football player or a student in the card section . . . The first murmuring roar rolls from the stands when the Cougar team approaches the field for the pre-game warm- up exercises. From then on, there may be lulls in the sounds, but never silence as frantic calls of "Hold that line," and jubilant students counting the number of points scored are heard echoing through the bowl . . . The crisp excitement of winter weather finds a match in the speed and excitement of winter sports . . .
